It also dimmed the chances of the GOP to gain power in the next millennium. Not a bad deal at that.

Well, the last thing that Republicans want is able-bodied taxpayers in the workforce, right?

Every unemployed gay person can apply for food-stamps, medicare, unemployment and welfare. That's MUCH better then bringing in a paycheck, right?

Gayness is the least of the Republican problem. Republicanism is the real problem.
Of course to be gay AND Republican probably makes you a masochist also.

Just a little language lesson for those of you who give a crap. His name in German is more properly spelled Böner, or maybe Böhner, and would be pronounced with the umlaut O sounding like a "RU", thus producing Bruner (pronoued Bru-ner). In English the umlaut o and e (öe) would be pronounced like the body of water, Bay. Thus you get Bayner (long a). Some in this country would pronounce it as Boner (long O), but who in their right mind would pronounce it that way? You may now go back to your interrupted conversation.

Oops, sorry. That's not pronounced Br, but rather Bur with a hard sounding B. German is confusing.

"The speaker believes this legislation will increase frivolous litigation and cost American jobs, especially small business jobs,"

Rep. Boehner then provided evidence from the 22 states that have protection to back up his claims.

Oh wait, no he didn't.

I'm sure he'd say it to you ANYTIME, ANYWHERE. You're such a puss.
But would either of you say "queer" or "f*ggot" out loud in a gay bar? Don't think so. LOL!
