Would Obama let Veterans continue to languish and die while he was busy getting some more Gay votes?

Being the primary vector for HIV/AIDS in America and being horribly infected as a group with that disease, gays should be able to put significant additional drain on America's economy. Hell, the Liberal nutters are giving even more of them access to disability by claiming sleep disorders for staying up at night cruising homeless youth to sucker with cash for sodomy routines. For years, taxpayer funded NPR has been promoting not only gays, but their disease. Years ago in PRIME TIME so children could hear, NPR ran an interview with an infected homosexual actually bragging about having over a thousand anonymous trysts and being infected with AIDS.

Where was all this outrage when men infected their wives with all sorts of horrible diseases they picked up from prostitutes for the past few thousand years or so?

Homosexuals are no more villainous than heterosexuals when it comes to sexually transmitted diseases. Even if homosexuals were the sole reason for HIV transmission, they still cannot compare to the thousands of years and billions of infections that heterosexuals have caused.

And, by the way, heterosexuals have been quite irresponsible about HIV transmission simply because of their ignorance in believing it is a Gay Disease.

As a general rule, suggestions for eating a healthier diet and getting enough exercise is completely ignored in spite of the terrible health problems that we are facing as a nation. One cannot expect that people will listen any better to the pleas for using condoms to prevent disease.

Human beings in general are stubborn and cavalier about their health. They still have unplanned pregnancies in spite of the availability of birth control.

Conclusion, people are just stubborn and rebellious. It has nothing to do with sexual orientation.

Whatever we do to protect the minority ultimately provides freedoms for a majority.

Anytime you try to infringe on the rights of others, you actually imprison yourself as an unintended consequence.

None of this would be necessary if people learned to behave and mind their own business, or live and let live.

If there was no discrimination, then there would be no need for the government to enforce and generate all these protections.

It is actually shameful that we have reached a point in society that a general understanding of Civil Rights cannot be applied to all without all this debate.

So if you do not like the debate, quit discriminating.

Your focus is wrong. No one is out there promoting syphilis, etc., like gays and their NPR supporters have actually promoted HIV and random infections of thousands. The TV appearances of gays threatening to intentionally infect heterosexuals with HIV decades ago is quite different than any heterosexual behavior. Your attempt to label posts of reality as "outrage" is unjustified. It is the weak morality and lazy intellectualism of this knee-jerk attempt to cover the actual threats of the homosexual mental infirmity, which is the core of the problem. You need to recognize and define a threat to humanity before you can do anything about it.

Child molesters are criminals whether they are heterosexual or homosexual. Why am I not surprised that yet another bigot has a knee jerk reaction and decides generalize in an inappropriate manner.

Interesting that Alabama decided to finally repeal its anti sodomy laws. Finally Bubba realized that his favorite pastime with his girlfriend was a form of Sodomy, so he realized that he needed to change the law.

Heterosexual does not automatically equal decent.

I have encountered many crass, inappropriate heterosexual males in public and at work.

One thing I have been able to count on is that if I happen to work with a homosexual, they so far have never failed to be respectful, decent and appropriate. They do not say ignorant, inappropriate things in an attempt to get a reaction.

You are the one with the problem.

Heterosexual males have created their share of misery with the help of their friends who participate in the Pornographic Industry.

Heterosexuals are not blameless in the sexual deviant category. In fact, I would say that they invented it.

The threat to humanity is ignorance and fear.

Fox News has certainly cornered the market on both of these commodities.

Attempts at sounding rational and even-tempered in an appraisal of other's objections to homosexuals is likewise wrong. Homosexuals are very disproportionately represented amongst child molesters and very often their multiple victims put them in the ranks of serial offenders, which is also reflected in their disproportionate representation amongst serial killers. This doesn't mean a particular homosexual is unable to control various compulsive behaviors, but it does point out, that homosexuality in and of itself is a mindset more inclined to embrace the marginal behavior of humankind.

Your bias regarding news reporting vs. opinion blogging seems apparent. They are different.

Yes, heterosexuals are not void of severe aberrations in human behavior, however introducing a false validation of observably and particularly deviant behavior from a significantly scant and commonly offensive sub-culture is not a way of addressing those evils. Further, your will find that almost universally, homosexuals have been at the core of creating and expanding the pornographic industries, both previously in print and now on the Internet.

We do not find any onslaught of heterosexuals preying on particularly vulnerable sections of society for purveying particularly harmful behaviors. With homosexuals, we do. This is why humanity has rejected homosexual behavior for many thousands of years. Their mentality is basically asocial, which means they are never satisfied and will pervert even the perverse in their never-ending desire for satisfactions they can not realize.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Victims love Democrats and Democrats love victims. They key to power and success is to expand your voting base. Democrats do this by creating more victims whether they are or not. Once you are deemed a victim by Democrats, they vow to help you overcome your victimization.

If you are gay, you are a victim.
If you are a minority, you are a victim.
If you are an illegal, you are a victim.
If you are a woman, you are a victim.
If you are poor, you are a victim.
If you are uneducated, you are a victim.
If you are a non-smoker, you are a victim.
If you don't have health insurance, you are a victim.

One of the reasons Democrats would love to disarm us is it would create even more victims. Even Democrats are not stupid enough to believe that taking firearms away from the public would disarm your common criminal. Then we would have a society where only the police and criminals had firearms. Of course no unarmed person is capable of defending themselves without a firearm. Victim.

PS: It was George Bush's war

PPS: The Iraq Study group did find chemical munitions at Muthanna but determined that inspections by United Nations Special Commission, or Unscom, had ensured the facility was dismantled and remaining chemical stocks militarily useless and sealed in bunkers.

The Iraq Study group did find chemical munitions at Muthanna but determined that inspections by United Nations Special Commission, or Unscom, had ensured the facility was dismantled and remaining chemical stocks militarily useless and sealed in bunkers.

"Two wars, sanctions and Unscom oversight reduced Iraqi's premier production facility to a stockpile of old damaged and contaminated chemical munitions (sealed in bunkers), a wasteland full of destroyed chemical munitions, razed structures, and unusable war-ravaged facilities," the Iraq Study Group's 2004 report concluded.
