    Because kos is not the whole of this site.

    As for the rest of it. Selling out LGTB rights has been politically expedient more times than not. If you can point out where kos called on standing up for LGBT rights at the expense of some other groups I'm all ears.

    Now we've got dems arguing for an immigration bill that will demonstrably hurt workers and won't include LGTB people. Not to mention the fact that it isn't even that great for immigrants. Sure, if they can afford a long drawn out process to get citizenship, during which their legal status is rather questionable, then they'll be better off. The poorer won't be able to do this at all. At least if what I've read is correct. This is going to be like the No Child Left Behind debacle all over again.

    What next, the return of the bracero?

    If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
