Let’s get a few things straight

Let me get this straight. Unsafe gun usage doesn’t kill; it’s the fact that there are guns. Whereas, unsafe sex does kill, and it doesn’t matter if sodomites are doing the killing.

Forty million babies have been killed through abortion, and liberals can’t figure why the budget won’t balance. American liberal women and gay males make the most noise in anti-war demonstrations, yet in Iraq, those who complain are beheaded.

Who checks to see if gay couples receiving domestic partner status are really having sex? Smokers die between 60 and 75, usually after paying a life’s worth of taxes. Can we say the same about AIDS patients?

When was the last time Nevada County laid off personnel, as does the private sector, to manage a budget? Why not take the oil fields? SUVs are here to stay. Only idiots think that our ancestors built Nevada City and Grass Valley with land management in mind. Discrimination can’t happen in an all-volunteer organization. If FCAT isn’t a whacko propaganda machine, where is Rush Limbaugh’s ditto-cam during prime time?

And I don’t get this: If cigarette ads contribute to children smoking, doesn’t teaching children to accept homosexuality contribute to the HIV epidemic? Just wondering.
