Sounds to me as if you're really afraid of Palin.
But, as SHE was the messenger from Obama, Issa gave her a message FOR Obama. That's fair enough. But, I do agree with you: he should have handed her the subpoena right then.
Ay, Lass, Attack his idea (with arguments, not a crude label), and don't attack his person. Name-calling gets nothing good done.

Earl, "anyone who says, 'you fool' will be in danger of the fire of hell." (Matthew 5:22). Your best bet is to attack Mr. Gerson's ideas, but not his person. Jesus died for him as much as for you, and therefore, his value is the same as yours and mine. Peace, Larry

Since "money" is often cited as the deciding factor, ¿could we not get it into law that (1) no public servant - hired or elected - could receive more money than the "average American salary"? Make sure that this includes any other kinds of benefit while serving the public, and it seems to me that most politicians would want to get out of politics as soon as possible. (2) ¿Would it make sense to also prohibit a public servant earning money in any non-publicservice way during his/her public service? I also liked the comment about having salary and perks diminish with each year served. Like military service, having put in one's time as a public servant could be worn as a badge of honor by anyone going back into the mainstream of private sector.

Does Bond Have Civil Rights Amnesia?

d,I mostly agree with you, but we must never forget that we - all of us, whatever color or race - have a duty to engage this conversation with the "black community". We need to challenge the mentality that you describe; it isn't happening much because we know that the conversation will be difficult. So, our cowardice shows how little we care. ¿Can't we summon up some of the courage that MLK showed in confronting that situation, so that we might gain some ground against the shameful, self-defeating mindset of the dependent class? (That class, of course, is not all black).

Thanks, David. It is always refreshing to find someone willing to do the actual research instead of just repeating what someone else has said (especially on the internet). Your effort enlightens the rest of us.

jr, the problem is this: "a gene or a hormone that consistently is found only in homosexuals" proves nothing except that the gene or hormone is consistently found only in homosexuals. It proves nothing about origins or causes. For example, it has been shown that thrombin, a clotting enzyme, is not found in newborns but (through a complex process) increases in amount until the 8th day when it is at about 120% and then levels off to 100% for the rest of the life (under normal circumstances). So the 8th day is the optimum time for circumcision to be performed. But that says nothing about origins or causes. While it makes sense to Bible-believers to say that "God knew" and therefore instructed Abraham to circumcise on the 8th day, that says nothing about how or why the thrombin is at 120% on the 8th day. Too many scientists draw conclusions from the facts they discover, when those conclusions are not at all scientific. So, if they discover that gene or hormone found consistently and only in homosexuals, you still should hold off judgment that they are "born that way."
Kepha, answer her arguments rather than attack her person. Then, I'll listen to you.
