bmoney1 saidLol, find me one "teabagger" that could actually give a shit about what some senate committee from TN approved.
Wrong. Social conservative, bigoted and religious right teabaggers (about 90% of all teabaggers) want bigotry written into ANY constitution. They use TN as a model for other states, just like they have repeatedly done with anti gay marriage amendments.

This has already been tried, and it failed miserably. As a result of "your way", millions of gay people have been abused, maimed, put in the hospital, wrongly jailed, harassed, bullied, fired from jobs and killed. No thanks. Schools teach scientific fact. Something conservatives and their churches seem to really hate.
bmoney1 said[quote]I think your little story is the perfect exemplification of how the teabag group advocates a smaller, less intrusive federal government. Since the constitution of the United States does not give the federal government power to control minutia in the classroom, to the tune of a single word or subject, the teabaggers could care less.[/quote]
Your small federal government claim exposes you as stupid, ignorant or brainwashed. Over 97% of congressional republicans voted to keep you out of the military, because they believe you're too weak to control your perverted, repulsive sexual urges around 'normal' people. They also believe that you're unfit to be near children, and can't maintain a stable relationship with a spouse. They have repeatedly written or advocated laws to prohibit your entry into these areas.
Small government? That only exists when they're talking about budgets for the SEC, EPA or other agencies that oversee the business activities of major republican financial supporters. I suggest you read up on plutocracy or fascism, or even any Noam Chomsky book...then come and tell me how your way is better.[/quote]
When reason fails, to personal attacks we turn. What a relief to find independent thinkers that don't need a federal government over-stepping its boundaries to guide their thoughts and decide what is right for their neighbors' children to be taught in public schools. I must have been deprived of this information in my 3rd grade Human Genetics course- so, please tell me on which gene is the gay gene located? This includes chromosome number and the specific nucleotide sequence of both the wild-type and mutant forms as well as what phenotypic effects this gene has on an idividual. Until this can be done, a school teaching children about homosexuality would not be teaching scientific fact. Furthermore, I hve no problem with the so called fact of evolution being taught in public schools as long as creation is taught as well. Either teach them both or not at all (not at all being my preference) as the THEORY of evolution is no less a religous belief than creation. And perhaps the 97% of congressional republicans to which are referring voted to keep YOU out of the military. I don't need to be an open or flamboyant homosexual to serve my country, so no act of congress would prohibit me from doing so- should I have the desire. Besides that, your point there has NOTHING to do with my original statement about the Tea Party calling for a more responsible, less intrusive FEDERAL government. You might think twice before pejoratively discounting fiscal responsibility as well. Undeniably if unconstitutional federal government entities such as the SEC and EPA were on limited bugets, and the federal government was not operating on huge deficits to fund entitlements to people who believe the federal government was instituted of the people, for the people, and by the people to support them, we definitely would not be in the mess we are in now.
If my way was good enough for our founding fathers, then by God it is good enough for me.
I'm done and never coming back to this thread so I don't waste another 30 minutes of my life trying to convince someone to take some personal responsibility and not look to the government for all the answers.
Peace and no hard feelings!
