Let me tell you what I DONT agree with...one, is the LITERAL DEATH GRIP, that the BACON, LETTUCE, TOMATO AGENDA, has on our BASIC FREEDOMS...including of Religion, AND OUR individual ability to Express Our Opinions. Considering these 'types', are only, estimated to be ONLY 4 PER CENT of our population, it's a case of the Tail, wagging the dog ! I am also against the RABID PROSELYTIZING AND INDOCTRINATION, OF OUR CULTURE AND CHILDREN, FROM PRE SCHOOL UP. IT HAS DESTROYED OUR NATION AND CULTURE.

Right on brookhaven* But give up enlightening fools... remember, George Bernard Shaw : "Don't argue with a pig - besides, the pig likes it"
