actually the information was made available by the LA Times shortly after the Prop 8 election " the LA Times obtained a list of people who gave, for and against, to the fight over the Prop 8 referendum in 2008. They put the whole database online and made it searchable." http://hotair.com/archives/2014/04/03/how-did-people-find-out-that-mozillas-ceo-donated-to-support-prop-8/ and here is the database http://projects.latimes.com/prop8/

go install palemoon. it is based on FF and works a whole lot better than FF. it also has a tool which allows you to seemlessly import your FF profile information and passwords. i tested out opera and maxthon. neither one was satisfactory although maxthon does have some good points, the problem is the learning curve. With palemoon the learning curve is nill.

you may think that, but the law applies to all and makes the donations list a public record. anyone could have requested the information. the state does not distribute the information unless someone requests it. Prop 8 proponents fought this request and lost. The intent of the law was to make it transparent as to who was supporting propositions. one can always request the donors list for those organizations opposed.

"is the Internal Revenue Service illegally leaked the donor list to a gay rights group " incorrrect. following the Prop 8 election the LA Times initiated an open records request for the Prop 8 donors list. under California law regarding donations for propositions requires that the donor's name, employer and amount of donation be capturered and maintained. The LATimes took the list created a database and posted it on line. anti-Prop 8 people then mined that database. it was not the IRS http://projects.latimes.com/prop8/ http://www.latimes.com/local/la-moneymap,0,1777132.htmlstory#axzz2y6ikhATo
Okay it is great that the magazine apologized, but when will the senior editor apologize?
"So no chemicals are needed to thicken the water as required by hydraulic fracking" actually the chemicals (many of which are normal items we use everyday) are not used to thicken the water, since sand is also mixed in with the water. the sand is used to keep open the fractures http://www.energyfromshale.org/hydraulic-fracturing/hydraulic-fracturing-fluid Typical chemical additives http://intellectualtakeout.org/library/chart-graph/typical-chemical-additives-used-frac-water
so what did Pro Publica do with those documents? did they contact the organizations whose applications they were given? Did they put out a press release? what???

"Catholicism was regarded by many people in this country as thoroughly incompatible with Americanism. " except that Catholicism didn't represent both a religion and political ideology. if you look at areas where Muslims have become the majority they tend to push pressure on others to accede to Muslim demands. In France non-Muslim women were forced to wear the hijab so as to avoid harassment by Muslim men. in other countries merchants who sell items that Muslims believe are haram such as videos, music and liquor are regularly pressured to not sell such items. or take a look at what takes place in Dearborn to Christians the bottom line is lack of assimilation into a Western culture.
