Scott Brown is a whole lot better than what he'd be replacing. Republicans have been shooting themselves in the foot for a long time with their insistence on ideological purity-and if they're not 100% perfect they're a RINO and we won't support them. Maybe we should learn to be a little happier if we're getting 80-90% of what we want from someone and stop throwing them under the bus if we don't get 100%. Disclaimer-This ABSOLUTELY does not apply to John McCain-we're lucky to get 50% from him and I'd love to throw him under the bus....while it's moving.

Remember what Reagan said-I'd rather have someone who agrees with me 80% of the time than someone I never agree with. Scott Brown would be better than Olympia Snowe and I used to think she was about the best we'd ever do in New England.
Hey, Sloandog. While my husband is working in Columbia he's living at the condo complex where the Secret Service had their problems. He's grandfathered, but the owner doesn't rent to Americans anymore.l
ca7-Why are atheists so hostile to religion? I prefer dogs to cats, but I'm not hostile to cat people. My belief has no effect on you.
ca7-No one is talking about refusing service with no basis or because they don't like their religion. The belief that homosexuality is a sin is common to nearly every mainstream religion. It's not new. The gay gestapo wants to force Christians to participate in something they believe is wrong because the disapproval of Christians makes them unhappy. They aren't happy with "live and let live". They have to have complete approval. It's not enough for us to say that they are free to choose their own lifestyle-they demand approval. In their view, to object to photographing their "committment ceremony" is bigoted and trying to force their beliefs on others...BUT forcing someone who has a legitimate moral objection to their ceremony to actively participate in it is not.Christians are not just making up things to avoid gays-this has been a documented belief of Christians for centuries. It's not the same thing as refusing to sell gasoline-photographing the event requires attendance and active participation. If you don't see the difference then you don't want to.
I can think of some bracelets I'd like to see Holder in.
In the long run I think the Gay Gestapo may be doing their movement more harm than good. Most people have pretty much accepted that people have a right to choose to live the way they want to, even if they believe that they way they choose to live is immoral. However, they're over reaching and people are beginning to really resent them. They may end up wishing they hadn't pushed so far.
Jeff, In other words, the SCOTUS is not willing to defend the Constitution when a state law violates it? That's not okay. I'm all for state's rights, but states should not have the right to make laws that violate the Constitution.
Do you have some reason to believe that it would get through the Senate?
