The ice is melting, and when the seas rise, I will have a nice underwater view from my living room...
Upton Sinclair said “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his job depends on not understanding it,” which seems to define the current administration.
After watching an Inconvenient Truth (which, I recommend doing at least once, with as many people as you can gather around) – it seems that for some reason the Republicans have an issue with Global Warming – and that somewhat makes sense to me – after all Rebublican seems to equal Oil Whore, and Oil equals Global Warming (simplified tremendously…)…
What doesn’t make sense to me is that apparently the Falwell camp – in their Liberty Alumni paper – has an issue with global warming as well. I don’t understand how Christians could be against saving the very thing God created for us; or is it that if we believe that Global Warming is going on – we have to subscribe to some scientific theory—and that might hint at a evolutionary stance?
My friend used to say “God protects his people…” but you know what – sometimes the ignorant can’t be protected…..

"I do not believe that the armed forces are well served by saying through our policies that it's OK to be immoral in any way, not just with regards to homosexual acts," the Joint Chiefs chairman said.
"So from that standpoint, saying that gays should serve openly in the military to me says that we, by policy, would be condoning what I believe is immoral activity," he added"
So, if we are follow a strict moral code in the Military, and not allow any one to serve who is, in any way, involved in "imoral" behavior -- who does that leave us with in the miltary?
I guess Mr. Pace ( I will refrain from calling General....as he doesnt deserve the title) is perfect, has never done an immoral thing in his view? Or is it just immoral when someone else does it? Is this a "do as I say, not as I do" game?
If the Legal Defence Fund is right, and there are some 65,000 GLBT servicemembers, I would LOVE to see the day they all came out together. Lets see what the military does then? 65,000 court martials? Pulling solider numbers way down, and stretching the resources even more? Ha...doubt ful!
Turns out, the first American wounded in Iraq is gay, and here is what he has to say about this shebang: http://www.hrc.org/Template.cfm?Section=Home&CONTENTID=35817&TEMPLATE=/ContentManagement/ContentDisplay.cfm
