We&#39;ve been out of the US for almost three years now and the news from down there just seems to be getting stranger every day. WHAT are they thinking?? Oh wait, they are not thinking!

Civil rights shouldn&#39;t depend on popular opinion -- whether it&#39;s in relation to job protection, marriage options, or freedom of expression.

Thankfully, my daughter&#39;s generation won&#39;t put up with this shit. So, while my generation might not move things along, hers will. And by that time the haters will be too old to do a damn thing about it.

Yes because as everyone knows gays have absolutely no control over their sexual impulses and frequently commit sex crimes against any man who tickles their fancy. Oh wait, I think I&#39;m confused. That&#39;s more along the lines of something heterosexual men are regularly convicted of, is it not? Hm.

It&#39;s so absolutely ridiculous that it seems more joke worthy than it is worthy of being reality. A survey? Really? Segregating? I don&#39;t understand US politics. Are they trying to get people up in arms about all the money being spent researching opening up the military so the country will say &quot;HAIL NO!&quot;? That&#39;s my conspiracy for the day.
