if youre not gay, why do you care so much about "gay rights"?
and since you care so much about "gay rights", why dont you also care for Iraqi freedom?
or to take it one step further, why dont you care for freedom of the oppressed around the world?
What is a neocon? You are.
I'm not gay, and I care about gays. I'm not a woman and I care about women. I'm not a dumbass neocon, but I even care about you. See my point?
I do care about the people of Iraq, and this administration doesn't.
I do care about the oppressed people around the world, and the includes the people of East Timor that we helped kill through military spending to Indonesia, the Kurds in Turkey that we've helped kill via military spending to the turkish government, and I care about both the palestinians and israelis, because they are both being oppressed by themselves. I care about the people of Africa who won't be getting US help for AIDS because of the stupid amendment that won't allow money to be distributed to clinics that also perform and consel for abortions. I care about everyone because I'm a humanitarian.
if going off of what some people said about neocons, then no im not. if going by the fact that neocons want a strong international influence, then i am definately not a neocon. i want the US to keep unto its own and worry about its own problems.
how can you say the administration doesnt care about the people of Iraq? do yo know what truly goes on in the hearts and minds of those people? youre just speculating like most liberals do.
im not gay, i dont have gay friends, but i do know gay people. i dont give a damn about "gay rights" because they have the same rights that are granted to the straight people by the constitution. all they want is the "right" to marry so they can get around insurance policies and inherit the property of their deceased partner. theyve already got America to tolerate them, they better stop before theres a big backlash because I [and many that I know] are becomeing increasingly irritated with gays and their "fight"
didnt AIDS originate in Africa?
oh, and for whomever askd the question about "whos this you?!" and "youre just flame baiting!" no, i was really wanting these things explained to me because my super ultra hyper hard nosed conservative mind couldnt grasp how a liberal can be in favor of helping some, but also in favor of withdrawing help from the "unworthy" so, when I used "you" it was a generic "you" meaning to all who read the statements, and they were obviously going along some broad generalizations, such as for you to be able to answer the 3rd question you hade to answer the 2nd question in a supportive manner.
and yes, i realize that none of you [or any liberals in the country] actually used the word unworthy to describe any country or any person [yet, but ted kennedy might someday soon!] so please dont post a billion replys about how im putting words into your mouths. its just the way im reading into a liberals argument.
