I actually come down on this side because we are, indeed, a free people and it is a free country. The only thing that disturbs me is that people from other lands who come to America some don't wish to learn our language. We are all free to speak whatever language we wish to speak but I shouldn't be surprised if I could not make myself understood to the masses. I do not wish to sound at all prejudiced but the Hispanic people seem to have a problem learning the language of their adopted land. I do resent having products and services labeled in Spanish as well as English. To me this does not foster the idea of having to learn our language. Rather it tells people we will bend when it comes to the subject. Myself and my family had to learn to speak English when we came here and the same should be expected of others who, at the very least, wish to be educated here.
It is an utterly ridiculous argument. All people deserve equal rights...that's why they're called human rights. Your argument that Gay people do not have the right to adopt is a false one. Many gay people adopt children successfully and their children do thrive for the most part. Unlike alcoholics and drug addicts they don't have the added headache of their children being born addicted. All people deserve respect and any human right that all others enjoy without prejudice.
Why can't people decide to take some responsibility for their lives, their taste or their allergies? They might think it better to complain to the airline and put a bit of pressure on them to have a better assortment of 'snacks' for them to eat or, safer still, bring their own along with them for the flight.
With all of the exposure this past year we've come to understand that cheating on your wife knows no boundaries...not Democrat or Republican and if, as Pyg says, they're all a bunch of scumbags why should it matter? It matters because it should. That's why most of the peopple who get caught doing it are now out of office.
We have a love affair with those who present themselves as honest, upstanding citizens running as candidates. We want them to be squeaky clean and if we find out anything about them that would alter that impression they're gone and they know it. That's why they try so hard to hide it.
Does it make them any less qualified to do their job? No, it doesn't but I wouldn't trust them again in any area of job or life.
We all pay for things in the tax codes which we don't agree with and this must be one of the smaller measures of money I can think of. How about someone who has no children paying school taxes all through the years? It's all, or should be, for the greater good.
13 is entirely too low to join the armed forces of any nation. Although I commend the thought I cannot understand the thought process that went into this decision. We're certantanly not hurting for soldiers to this dregree. Live life a bit first then make a decision that will alter your life, perhaps forever.
