Finland has VERY strong rightwing elements. Homophobia is very strong there. I suspect it comes from both their national Lutheranism and close association with Russians.

Most humans know how to mate in accordance with natural law and are irritated by show tunes.

"natural law" is a philosophical construct of the medieval proto-scholastic period of the Roman Catholic Church that has next to nothing at all to do with an actual understanding of "nature".

We aren't concerned with "mating", but pairbonding.

Like opera arias, show tunes are irritatingly fun, which is why gay people (especially drag queens) enjoy using them as send-ups of hetero culture. They are SO over-the-top they're ridiculous.

There are folks around here that believe they can do anything there"re big enough to do, no matter how it tramples on USA citizens rights. That I don"t favor..
Some people you can arbitrate with.... you can reason a thing out and settle it fair and square.. there are others will understand nothing but full force..... I also see some people in some very nonproductive work, particularly our current Presidents increasingly border security left undone. They figure to profit by what other people with common folk sense do, and do not"aim to stand by in silence..
My level of discouragement with our Governor Perry also increased when our contacts became increasingly unsophisticated. In the past few years our congress have become more aware of an issue with the open border with Mexico and it criminals pouring into the USA.
When people enter into society that's living with other folks--- he agrees to abide by the rules and law of that society, and when he crosses those rule of laws he becomes liable to judgment, and if he continues to cross them borders, then he becomes an Outlaw.
People sit back in the White house never think that the people who came first to the United States of America. Whats the matter I will tell you what is the matter we have alot of these people breaking into the white house that do not belong there there actions should present the USA to emphasize the real issues and what we look like to the criminal element coming across our borders. free ride on my taxes are -up. The borders are still open to all illegals.
We have hashed over this problem many times over the last 20 years. We have heard listened to dozens of suggestions, We have read many of commentary, now we are ready to give up to 40 million illegal Mexicans amnesty no, we already have enough problems on the tables to last us into the next decade. We need a leader that can seal the border with Mexico today not 20 more years. of this we the people need the change now
