TBM- Not only the Tenth which broke 3 for Jeff, 2 against---the 11th broke 3 for Jeff, 1 against--the 8th broke 3 for Jeff, 1 against. I would say the grassroots from NOVA were fairly well represented.
The pro Jeff supporters in the morning at the SCC meeting were 92---The against Jeff supporters were 6.
Does it really matter what shade of conservative folks are, as long as they support and believe in the Republican Creed? Is it Ronald Reagan big tent or what?
I agree there are grey areas in some things. In others I do not believe that there are. The problem is that if you try to step into your shadow the shadow will keep moving. As we move into the grey areas they will keep moving to areas that used to be considered black and white.
About 30 years ago sodomy was illegal in most U.S. states. Through much arguing people agreed that this was a grey area and those laws were eventually overturned. Then allowing homosexuals in the military became the grey area. That became don't ask don't tell and will soon become forced acceptance and legal protection of homosexuals in our military. We will be seeing the first GI's prosecuted for ridiculing gay teammates within 5 years. Then the formerly unthinkable gay marriage became the grey area. We are already see that those standing on the side of what is right and best for our country are being demonized for not accepting this grey area. Once this abomination is forced upon us our schools will begin teaching our children that homosexuality is normal and a choice that they will have to make. The grey area will them become paligomy and incestual marriage. There is after all more religious and historical evidence that these were once the accepted norms in some societies than gay marriage was. We will be demonized for standing against this and the grey area will move to adult child relationships. Sound crazy??? Well if you had told someone in 1950 that a man would be allowed to marry a man and adopt and raise children they would have told you that you should be institutionalized.
Should I get into the grey area on:
The Death Penalty
Ceding our rights to the U.N.
Thanks, but I understand there are grey areas. It is damn well time for us to make the left step into the grey area so we can get it moving the right way.
Sandy, so...who handled education before no child left behind?
