Doesn't it seem strange that Republicans are forcing gay couples to raise children out of wedlock?

Frist needs to stop being such a bigot and let homosexuals have the same rights as the adulterous wing of the Republican party.

Yahoo! News - Frist Vows Senate Will Block U.S. Gay Marriages: "WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist vowed on Thursday that the Senate would block any effort to legalize same-sex marriage, a day after Massachusetts' top court ruled the state must allow homosexuals to wed. "

I doubt Scalia will have the sudden ethical enlightenment needed to recuse himself after taking a lobbying trip with a the Vice President (aka. Litigant). Let's face it, if the guy didn't recuse himself in the 2000 presidential election he won't in this case either.

Yahoo! News - Scalia-Cheney Hunting Trip Draws Fire: "Congressional Democrats and newspaper editorials have called for Scalia to step down from the case, which has to do with whether Cheney must reveal who serves on his energy task force. Further complicating the question: The host of the hunting trip is a prominent member of the energy industry. "

Am I the only person who thinks it's funny that a person with the surname Carlin is suing about something profane being shown on television?

Yahoo! News - Tenn. Woman Files Suit Over Super Bowl: "Carlin alleges that she and others who watched the halftime show during Sunday's Super Bowl were injured by the performers' lewd actions when Timberlake ripped off part of Jackson's costume, exposing her breast. "

It's good to see that the American electorate is starting to understand what George W. Bush and his cronies are doing to this country. It's time for a change, and it can't come soon enough.

Yahoo! News - AP Poll Notes Decline in Support for Bush: "And for the first time, more voters in this poll's two years of tracking the question said they would definitely vote against Bush than said they would definitely vote for him. "

Who's right on the issue of paying a fair share of taxes:

a) Sharpton
b) Huffington
c) Cheney
d) Bush
e) a & b

Sharpton Speech to Building & Const. Trades--April 9, 2003: "And the hypocrisy of saying it is an honor for young men and women to risk their lives in the military, but it's a burden for the rich to pay their fair share of taxes back home. "

August 5, 2002 - Holding Dick Cheney "Accountable": "Of course, Cheney's reluctance to talk to reporters is understandable, given what has been coming to light about his heretofore highly touted tenure at Halliburton, including the questionable accounting, the offshore subsidiaries, and the revelation that the company did business with Iran, Libya, and -- despite Cheney's denials -- Iraq. Call this his 'Axis of Profits.'

Let's start by looking at the problem of the vice president and Halliburton. During the number two's time as the company's number one, the number of Halliburton subsidiaries registered in tax-friendly locations ballooned from nine in 1995 to 44 in 1999. The result? A dramatic drop in Halliburton's federal taxes, which fell from $302 million in 1998 to less than zero -- to wit, an $85 million rebate -- in 1999.

But, to be fair, under Cheney, Halliburton did end up giving a little something back to America -- in the form of $2 million worth of fines for consistently overbilling the Pentagon. In one case they charged $750,000 for work that actually cost them only $125,000. Despite all this, the company has continued to be awarded massive government contracts, including a new 10-year deal with the Army that, unlike any comparable arrangement, comes with no lid on potential costs. I guess it really does help to have friends -- and ex-CEOs -- in very high places. "

Interesting reading about the guy at FOX who was a registered Republican while claiming to be unbiased an a no-spin kind of guy. Here are some "Fair and Balanced" comments from the Left about the hypocrite:

Oh Really O'Reilly: "COSMOS LEFT believes FOX talk show host Bill O'Reilly has emerged as one of the most dangerous individuals in this country. There are other bourgeois pundits more personally obnoxious than O'Reilly--Hannity, Colter, Limbaugh--but none of these cretins pretends to be working class heroes. O'Reilly does claim to speak for workers, as fascist demagogues usually do."
