"That is, taking your forcefully collected tax money and pouring it down the rat-hole of health benefits for some guy's butt-buddy-of-the-month. And this is just the tip of the iceburg of what's coming."
Yeah, I agree that "same-sex" benefits are a freakin' PC joke, esp. since homos change partners as much as slutty heteros....yet, the unmarried slutty heteros aren't getting their lifestyle subsidized...
" But you've got to understand that the homo-promo types who can broach no criticism and who are willing to create laws that will have people arrested for criticizing their "deathstyle"
Very true- these folks' skin is paper-thin when it comes to criticism. This tactic is also used in racial discussions, but I'm sure you've noticed that. This "If you disagree with me, you're a homophobe/racist/anti-Semite" crap prevents me from taking any of their sides very seriously. I get the same reaction when I discuss Israel/Palestine with people.
"When the issue is put to a direct vote, even in California, they lose. If you don't see this trend as tyrannical, I can't help you. "
They also had a vote in Colorado a few years back about same-sex issues....something to do with forceful employment or benefits or something...anyways, the measure was shot down and yep- you guessed it - the homos complained. The real problem with all this is that we're letting a minority group act as though it was the majority.
I guess I don't consider it a huge problem (yet) because I see so many other issues of morality and ethics that are directly impacting me. Enron, Global Crossings, and WorldCom's misdealings cost me FAR more money that these assclown buttpirates have. Thanks for the conversation!

Citizens Against Government Waste Since the first federal resources were made available to state and local health agencies for AIDS prevention in 1985, federal funding, which now includes money for research, treatment, and housing, has skyrocketed to $13 billion for fiscal 2003. As a result of the work of highly mobilized lobbying forces, more is spent per patient on AIDS than on any other disease, though it does not even currently rank among the top 15 causes of death in the United States. In one year, 1998, heart disease, the nation's leading cause of death, killed 724,859 Americans only 6.8 percent less than the 774,767 who have contracted AIDS in the last 20 years.2 Of those 774,767 total AIDS cases, 462,766 have died. During that same period, 14 million Americans 30 times more have died of heart disease.
