    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is lambasting Republican Sen. Rand Paul for injecting a last-minute debate over abortion into a bipartisan attempt to pass flood insurance legislation.

    "After all the work that's been put on this bill, this is ridiculous that somebody said 'I'm not going to let this bill go forward unless I have a vote on when life begins.'" Reid said Tuesday on the Senate floor.


    On Monday, Paul introduced the amendment, which calls for defining life as beginning at conception. The bill at large would re-authorize the National Flood Insurance Program, a federal entity that offers flood insurance to more than 5 million homes.

    It may take them a few minutes to paste the spin from Fox News, and other Republican sources.

    Ever heard of "a butterfly flutters its wings in the Indian Ocean and results in a hurricane in Florida"? Something like that's in Sen. Paul's mind. icon_lol.gif

    Our RJ members who are Republicans have to ignore that which if responded to shows their hypocrisy and pokes holes in their propaganda.


    Who knows about Rand Paul pulling this stunt !!! Jesus may have made him do it so he could get the Christian Fundi votes. We could call it "IDIOCY FOR JESUS" !!!

    Wait till these republicans vote some of these repub congressmen and senators into office and then they start turning out laws against gays !! The New 'public servants' our gay repub friends voted in, will tell the Christian Fundi's they're making laws for Jesus, to get those blessing god promised, But our Gay repubs will still vote for them because as they tell us, "some of us aren't one issue voters" LOL I wonder how sanctimonious they'll feel about that reasoning when their rights are gone.

    Gay issues are just one of the areas these Fundi Idiots and far right TBaggers are now and would be pushing for under a Romney administration, they want to hit our schools, our foreign policy, their 'drill baby drill' mantra totally ignored the environment, and they'd love to whittle away all safety nets including SS.

    Republicans better be careful what they wish for through these people, THEY JUST MAY GET IT !!!

    I thought Libertarians were supposed to be about leaving these decisions up to the state. Why is he doing this at the federal level?

    Lets not be too suprised at a win by the Christian Fundi and TBagger groups that are so pleased with Adelsons foreign National millions and Corp money for their causes. Its hard for facts to raise their heads and be seen and heard with such a huge influx of cash putting out lies, exagerations and propaganda.

    As I say to Republicans, be careful what you wish for, you just may get it and a lot more in the bargain.

    But you're assuming that most of them are indeed gay, just because they claim to be. Yet many here, like yourself, are confounded that gays would vote this way against their own overall interests, and support such harmful, discriminatory, and self-destructive anti-gay policies.

    Well it wouldn't be a mystery if they were actually straight, with a straight agenda in being here, would it? So that to answer your question, they won't feel anything if their gay rights are gone, since gay rights don't apply to them. What they will feel is satisfaction that OUR gay rights are gone, and that they contributed to neutralizing our objections to these setbacks, on gay social sites like this one.

    This would have been passed a long time ago if it wasn't for prostitute JOHN, Sen. Vitter.
