None of what you said has anything to do with any of my actual opinions.
The last time I said that, you took an old exchange of ours and actually edited it to make it seem like I had said something that I had not. So here's your chance to show you're not a liar. Find any instance - any instance at all where I have said or even obliquely implied that gay people need to shut up. Start with this thread. I made a comment yesterday that could help you along.
Then find a comment I made about the Nobel Prize that resembles your characature in any way. Otherwise, retract your latest lie.
I like your post. The only thing I'd possibly add is that in practice, you have to insist on everything NOW NOW NOW if you want anything done at all. The back-and-forth about whether Obama has really done anything behind the scenes or if he's had enough time or if he intends to do anything at all or maybe change will come after healthcare might make for interesting conversation, but it cannot be the face of the movement. The face of the movement has to be 'We demand equality now."
I like HRC but I don't understand why they don't always seem to get that.
"One of the more surprising findings of the current survey is the expressed willingness of the opponents of health care reform to compromise on this issue. A clear majority of opponents (62%) - many of whom say they very strongly oppose health care reform proposals - say they would prefer to see opponents compromise with supporters to make the legislation better, rather than try to prevent a bill from passing.
Notably, supporters of health care reform - who are less likely than opponents to register very strong opinions about the proposals - are less inclined to compromise."
No matter what happens, the President is going to keep calling his efforts and the bill "bipartisan". The motives for this are so obvious that no matter how I try, I can't begin to explain it without it seeming just unbelievably condescending, which I don't mean to be. So I won't try.
I'll just say that "while I admire the President for reaching out, is this really bipartisan?" misses the point.
