  •  Someone should remind these spineless Dems (2+ / 0-)

    that undocumented immigrants don't vote - but gays do.

    They are setting up laws where straight non-citizens have more rights than gay citizens.

    This is not acceptable to me.

    If altar boys could get pregnant, contraception would be a sacrament.

    •  Those laws already exist! (0+ / 0-)

      Dems are keeping the status quo because nothing more is even politically possible.

      55 Dems - Pryor and Manchin = 53 pro-gay Dems.
      Add in Kirk, Collins, Murkowski, and Portman and we still need 3 more.  Maybe Flake, he voted to repeal DADT.  And so did Burr.  Even then we need one more, either Pryor, Heller, Manchin, or Toomey probably.  None of those are sure things.

      Socially libertarian, moderate on foreign policy, immigration, and crime, liberal on everything else.
