Such a stupid, stupid, stupid comparison. You compare what happens between 2 consenting adults to an adult who would take advantage of a child or animal? C'mon now, you're not really dumb enough to think that argument holds any water.
Gotta love our government, huh? I imagine someone will find some reason to object to what sounds like a perfectly reasonable and logical endeavor.
Diane, sorry, but it's far from over. I know you'd prefer we just shut up but it's not gonna happen. I could say the same to you about abortion. The supreme court ruled on it. It's over. Get over it. But I won't, cause i'm sure just like me, if you feel strongly about something you're not just gonna sit by and do or say nothing.
What does that have to do with anything??? I'm reasonably sure the homosexual community aren't responsible for many (if any) abortions. What a ridiculous argument.
Well Bentpan, the people are wrong. And it's not 61% of North Carolinians, it's 61% of the people who got off their butts to vote. The fact that this amendment was placed on a primary ballot, rather than general election ballot is a joke. They intentionally placed it when they knew the majority of people coming out to vote would be conservative, since the incumbent party generally gets less of a turn out for primaries. Anyway, that's not what this letter is about. The republican party blatantly and openly stated that it's ok to discriminate against gays in their platform. Absolutely disgusting.
Correction: It falls in line with most Wisconsin polls, not national polls.
Not sure if i read wrong, or they updated numbers, but that poll now stands at 51-44 for Obama which pretty much falls in line with most national polls i've seen lately. My point is that a lot of independents don't lean drastically right or left. If you're faced with 2 options in 2 different races, one far right, the other far left, it's not out of the realm of possibility that you may vote for one from each spectrum if you don't lean strongly either way. In '08 I voted for Obama for prez and McCrory for gov because i felt each was the best fit for the position based on what we had to choose from. I didn't agree entirely with either candidate, but felt that McCain & Perdue were inferior options. State and national politics are vastly different. What may work on a state level may not work federally so the same type candidate isn't necessarily the best option for both levels.
First of all, since I didn't personally conduct the exit poll it isn't "my" poll. Second, no need to be condescending, I'm quite well educated thank you. Third, many independents may well be happy with the job Walker has done AND also approve of Obama. Some people don't vote simply for the R or D in front of a persons name. And finally, I at no point said it was a rock solid poll and the results have to be true. I said it was interesting, as in the results of the poll held interest for me. You were the one throwing out absolutes that have no basis in fact, as the election is still many months away and much can change.
AP- I realize that, just thought it was interesting considering the gap in the recall election. Only time will tell if Obama can pick up Wisc., but a recall election in June in no way guarantees Romney will win the state as Bentpan suggested. Nearly all the polls coming out of Wisc. that I've seen have Obama ahead (and before you jump in, I do realize that polls aren't 100% accurate). I personally don't see much light at the end of the tunnel regardless of who gets elected. It'll still be the same old BS outta DC. As frustrated as I am, I'll still get out & vote. Hope you all do too.
Unless it favors your candidate, right AP?
