Mothers and Sons wants this next generation to taste them, too. My story is their story, just as theirs is already part of mine. We are part of the same continuum."

RoadSome early Wisconsin presidential polling from PPP, which shows Hillary Clinton leading and a plurality for same-sex marriage "For the first time PPP finds a plurality of voters in the state in support of gay marriage- 47% support it to 45% who are opposed. Those numbers represent a 13 point net increase in support from 2011, when we found only 39% there supported gay marriage with 50% against it. Showing the direction public opinion is headed in on the issue, 65% of voters under 30 support it to only 35% who are opposed. When you broaden the discussion to include civil unions 71% of voters in the state, including 55% of Republicans, support some form of legal recognition for same sex couples, to only 26% completely opposed."

  2. Kudos to Morrissey for calling out Canada for the fraud it has become. The reality is that, for all their self-righteous, self-congratulations, Canada is behaving horribly irresponsibly in many spheres, to the extent that it is becoming a pariah among Western countries.

    The brutality of the baby seal hunt continues and instead of phasing it out, they are pushing to find other markets since Europe and the US will not condone their savagery by allowing them to sell here.

    In another development today, a Canadian company, after bribing the desperately poor nation of Papua New Guinea, has gotten permission to blow up the sea floor in a mining operation that will be among the most disastrous activities for the ocean enviornment the world has ever seen.

    All this on top of their Putin-like "hate speech bans", which are, in principle, just like Putin's bans on "gay propaganda", although aimed in the other direction.

    What a disgrace Canada is becoming to the civilized world.

  3. I found Morrisey's comparison of the seal hunt to the Nazi extermination camps offensive in the extreme. Nothing short of the extermination of millions of people deserves that comparison. He has, however, brought up Nazis and the Holocaust and has lost the debate according to Godwin's Law.

  6. Mr. McNally, maybe we're saying thank you because we're thankful that you've chosen to educate us. Maybe we're not meant to understand the festering of -your- wounds but to be able to soothe and heal them?
