What's not to understand? It's a sin that falls in the same category as stealing or being a drug addict. What's worse, gays have the audacity not to be ashamed of themselves. They actually claim it's a legitimately moral lifestyle, and they want that view to become the baseline our children will grow up with.

Equal rights for "gays" is akin to legalizing heroin and prostitution and telling children "it's just a personal lifestyle choice."

Does anyone know who the guy on the left is? The two on the right are obvious, and ironic (Franklin having said, "Lighthouses are more helpful than churches," and "The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason."). Maybe James Madison? James Wilson? There are a lot of "Founding Fathers."

EDIT: this is a screen grab from the end of the livestream.

Could be John Muhlenberg, part of the "Black Robes" Beck has been keen to harp on. They were clergymen who either fought in the revolution, preached it from the pulpit, or were part of the Continental Congress.

*edit* Nope, kame's right. Funny, he looks different on the beer bottle...

kame, please tell me you know that because you're an alcoholic. I never even knew what he looked like until you said who he was.

Bollocks, Dogen & WoC. Everyone knows that's Sam Adams. As if only a drunk or lush would recognise him! I knew it at first glance ...

...





in other 'news', townhall.com reports attendance "somewhere in the neighborhood of 500,000"; tpm.com obtained an estimate built off of aerial photographs of 87,000.


reminds me of the time a former boss of mine made a claim to a prospective client that his company had conducted this particular type of research "a number of times" and later defending the claim to his office colleagues by reminding them "What -- zero is a number."

Just curious : Old Europe isn't lacking of far-right politicians too. Whatever the country, they're back in fashion sadly. So why turn to the other side of the pond while there is so much work to be done here?.

It's interesting. Seeing as this forum is mostly made up out of Americans, I like talking about their politics here. On several British fora I visit, I talk about British stuff.

On a Belgian forum and in real life, I talk about Belgian politics. I figure I could talk about Belgian politics here as well, but... well, it's pretty hard to explain. Belgium is an incredibly complicated country, probably more so than most other countries in the world. I wish I were exaggerating, but it's really, really bad. Seeing as I can't provide any proper English sources about Belgium, it'd be hell trying to discuss the situation here.

I talk about Glenn Beck here because I think it's pretty interesting. Not only that, but seeing as America's still fairly important in the world, it's important to me as well.

And fyi, the two far-right parties in Flanders received a vicious beating last election. The libertarian-esque party, LDD, lost nearly half its votes and only has one seat in parliament left. The racist/separatist party, VB, also lost heavily, despite a political climate that was in their favour. Both parties are imploding, as well.

Though, to be fair, the big winner is also a right wing party, but it's just shit, not crazy. They did get 27.8 of the Flemish vote, which equals 17.4% of the national vote. That may not sound like much, but the only party that comes close is the PS with 13.7%.

Even fivethirtyeight.com felt Belgian politics was incomprehensible and, for reference, far and away more complicated than Afghani politics. So yeah, I'm not sure I should even try to understand it.

(off topic: what's everyone think of 538's move to the NYT?)
