1NewsIcon Rather than getting with the times and learning to accept the fact that there are gay people in this world, Linda Harvey and her conservative group, Mission: America, are trying to boycott all of the companies that scored well on Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index. From their form letter: "You are highly-rated by the [HRC] as a company supportive of many aspects of the homosexual activist agenda. I am hoping you have done this out of ignorance about the true nature of both homosexuality and the goals of aggressive homosexual advocacy."

  2. The liquidation of Hostess exposes, once again, that corporate executives always have far greater leverage over workers, even if they are unionized. With Hostess closing up shop and liquidating its assets, its corporate executives will still be earning millions, even after they've received massive increases in pay. Meanwhile, its workers receive nothing.

    In effect, the corporate executives have nothing to lose by liquidating while workers have everything to lose.

    While both the management and workers may be unemployed after the whole thing is over, unemployment isn't so bad if you have more in the bank than most people will ever earn in a lifetime.

  3. Whenever I read comments concerning Religion, and the various arguments about the validity of one against another; Muslin vs Judaism, Catholic vs Protestant; Mormon vs .... . Plus all of the others classed as "Queer". (NOT having anything to do with Homosexuality, but just being "Queer") compared the few mainstream Religions, I wonder why, as a species, anyone even believes in ANY "GOD" or "Religion" now. They were ALL invented by men out of "Fear of the Unknown", to provide answers to questions about mysteries related to nature itself. As Man became more learned, the "Mysteries" disappeared. The Earth is NOT flat; the Sun DOES NOT rotate around the Earth; Lightning and Thunder are NOT separate events, but are related; Diseases are not caused by vapors existing in fog; etc, etc, etc. There just is no need for a "God" to exist to answer our questions about nature itself.
