I'm going back to a story that was on O'Reilly last year. It started with the controversy of a lesbian couple who was trying to have artificial insemination, but they wanted a deaf child.(they succeeded by making sure that the donars that were being selected were deaf, they rigged the odds) On the show, they made it clear they were liberal, even worse, on a couple of follow up shows on different networks, I was stunned to see that there were groups claiming that parents putting these implants into there kids, was destroying "deaf culture". It was left wing victimization to an extreme, and the fact that there are liberal groups out there who want to "protect the culture" of the deaf is scary, because, I think whats next, will be protecting blind culture.

Also bear in mind, not every democrat is a left wing liberal. The far left creates "cultures" for groups, I don't know what deaf culture is, but personally, I would like to see a day where no one is handicap, unless they choose to be. The fact that there are groups that think every kind of progress to remove a handicap is a slap at a culture is troubling.

I`ll never understand how these govmnt agencies get these names, how they make these correlations..Call me bad in history but Food and drug? What is the relationship between food and drugs? "Bobby, finish your vegetables and take your heroin." or "Alcohol tobacco and firearms" Let`s stop those rednecks who drink moonshine, spit and shoot. Come again? I mean why don`t they just go the whole route and start an agency called "cell phones, dynamite and socks" or "Air Jordan sneakers, freon and kittens"
