Our Real Problems



Why can’t people see that if we had gone state-to-state with the vote on integration, African-Americans would still not be voting in the South?

A state-to-state vote on gay rights is not democracy. On CNN they suggested it was democracy-in-action because everywhere equal rights for gays had been put to the vote, it had been voted down. Bull-crap.

Exceptions are not allowed in the Constitution unless it affects innocent people like with murder or theft.

Prohibition didn’t work and drinking gets more innocent people killed than any sin other than war. They are trying to do it with smoking which also kills. Now they are trying it with gluttony.

The sins they really need to work on are greed, bearing false witness and self-righteousness.
