You've been warned!
Was this originally filed under chat?
Because I would've considered this an editorial (or idiotorial).
It's a force of habit. That saves the MODS from always moving it.
I hate when ten year olds get a column.
Most 10 year olds would write better columns than Morford.
Ah, I haven't delved my tongue into the rich fruity messy fudgepacking vibratordriving melange that is Mark Morford in a long time. He is so fruitily delicious to hate.
You win my award for priceless imagery. I assure you it's a rare honor.
Another sodomite rant from the Morfordite.
I just wondered if I could write that kind of flowery, fruity, anus-puckering prose like Miss Morfordite does.
Below is a survey just released of how Americans, who are not the non fudge packers nor pro fudge packers feel about being Americans:
Gallup: Very High Number 'Proud to be An American'

NEW YORK A new Gallup Poll taken this month shows that, despite a range of current concerns, fully 85% of adult Americans say they are extremely (59%) or very (26%) "proud to be an American."
Just 5% answered "only a little" or "not at all."
Gallup, however, found wide disparity on a level of satisfaction with various issues facing Americans. Health care stands out as the most troubling domestic issue, Gallup reports.
Gallup also outlines the splits on controversial issues, such as "acceptance of homosexuality." It found that 32% are totally satisfied with the current levels of acceptance, 20% want more acceptance and 30% less.
Better than 50% want immigration levels lowered.
A sampling of other issues with the percentage who say they are totally satisfied:
Position of women: 70% Military strength: 67% Security against terrorism: 58% influence of organized religion: 55% State of race relations: 52% State of economy: 47% Size and power of federal gov't: 46% Quality of public education: 42% Policies on abortion: 40% Amount you pay in federal taxes: 38% Moral and ethical climate: 33% Availability of affordable health care: 26% Energy policies: 29%
What's wrong with that b****?
In my experience, gays are proud and glad to be Americans. There aren't _that_ many countries where they could have what they have here. I have a feeling the 5% who are aren't proud are 18-year-old ANSWER and Amnesty Intl. members and their faculty tutors. (who I see assembling on the quad at my school every spring).
Obliviously, you haven't been the Gay Frisco Area.
Haha, you got me there. But everyone in Frisco is crazy..lol. I live in a fairly rural/suburban area, and my experience has been different
