I do believe in free speech, however, employers have the right to curtail your speech when you are in the work place. Employees are paid to do a job not stir up controversy and insult other workers.

The pro-life forces seem to be following the same model as the war on drugs. By this I mean that they are focusing their efforts on the providers and are afraid to confront the consumers. We have learned that where there are consumers there will always be providers. Who do they think is getting all these abortions? Normal everyday people, coworkers, even people you meet in church. Honestly, I have no idea how to reach women who are considering abortion. But I feel pretty certain that making abortion difficult to obtain or illegal will not be a solution.

Democracy is a fool's errand in the Middle East. The proof is in the pudding. Islamism has been held at bay only by military strongmen crushing all dissent. We will never stop radical Islam by force. Consider that the Middle East has now sunk to the level of Sub-Saharan Africa is term of economic output. In two or three generations, the people will figure out that this form is Islam is a disaster and be ready to try something new. Let's just contain them until then just as we did the Soviets.

Oldshort, you are using mindless insults to avoid answer my question. Do you really believe that ambulances will not go to muslim neighborhoods? Doesn't that seem kind of unbelievable?

Nevets, you are not providing any information or even logic to support your position. You are just imagining a future in which you can say I told you so.

I'm sorry, did Mr Shapiro just say 'normalization of incest'? This is the practice that is illegal in all 50 states and has about zero public acceptance. There is nothing normal about incest nor is it being normalized anywhere. In their frenzy to show that gay marriage is a mistake, conservatives insist that the legalization of all sort of strange sexual behavior is inevitably just around the corner. They say that if gay marriage is permitted then all other types of permutations must logically be permitted. Is this really true? Have they thought this through? Consider this. Gay marriage happened because of decades of work done by millions and millions of gay people to secure their rights. The fact that there are so many gay people was critical to them getting this far. Now consider incest, polygamy, pedophilia, and bestiality. These are the sexual practices most often sited by conservatives as being right around the corner. How many public advocates exist for these practices? Some. A few. If you were a congressman, would you see a lobbyist for beastiality or pedophilia? It's rather comical. If, for example, a group of 15 million were clamoring for man-goat sex, some things would probably start happening. If a constituency of 20 million polygamist were demanding that their families be legitimized, they would eventually have their way in time. But let me emphasize, that is not happening. These sexual practices have, in fact, less than a handful of public advocates, no money, and no determination. They don't care about normalize or legalization and neither does anyone else. So why pretend that normalization is imminent?

Let these insanity continue. Do you have any factual information to prove that ambulances, firetrucks, and unarmed police will not go to these areas? As usual in the conservative press, rumor is taken as fact.
The history books will show whether normalizing relations with Cuba was helpful to the Cubans. Some obviously believe today that the move with strengthen the Castros' grip on the island. Most, however, believe that an avalanche of beach side hotels, Carnival Cruises, Sandals resorts, Casinos, and low-end manufacturing will bring Cuban prosperity on a par with other Carribbean islands. This seems much more likely to me. The fact that Cuba has fantastic beaches and is only 90 from the US will make it the premiere vacation destination in the region. Will the Castro brothers allow it? I would like to see two very old men try to stop it.
Not seeing much evidence of this conservative majority among republican voters. Were it so, the leadership of the congress would be in conservative hands and it would be focusing on conservative objectives. That is obviously not happening. Why not? Because conservatives remain a minority in the republican party. The conservative cause needs more voters, plain and simple.
