    It is all those narrow minded bible thumping screwballs from the right wing of the GOP that are responsible for this horrendous act. What burns my ass is that most of these right wingers are self loathing closet cases who hate themselves so intensely that that ignorance and hate spills out and contaminates the rest of society. This unneeded killing of this important bill for gay youth clearly proves that and it's wrong.icon_mad.gif

    Such loss--they celebrate raining on our parade--while it infuriates it ought to invigorate community, contextualizing same-sex marriage as a gain that was once a goal, a destination that is now a waypoint to the gaining of greater civil rights. March on.

    Huh? Save it for the faculty lounge.

    Here, in plain English, albeit w/ a few numbers, is the actual vote:

    https://www.opencongress.org/vote/2015/s/236

    What's w/ FL Demo Bill Nelson not voting in favor of this, especially when 7 GOPers made the effort to?

    Don't blame it on the one Democrat who didn't vote in favor. The opposition was spear headed by Republicans, pure and simple.

    40 cosponsors, one a Republican?

    Bill Nelson's record is pretty good! Perhaps he was ill or couldn't attend.

    Your English seems to have some spin on it, cue ball. You said that as if anyone needed to climb an ivory tower to view this shit.

    LOL - nicely played, but the votes speak for themselves, as does the ivory towerese I quoted but you deleted. Now, THAT'S some bad shit!

    Point is, Republican Senators killed the bill. Not Democrats. MGINSD can rationalize it (and lie) all he likes, but that's the fact. His trying to blame it on Democrats, or on a "faculty lounge" attitude, is disgraceful.

    Any damage that Republicans can inflict on gay Americans is considered a "win" for the party of bigotry. In this case they are targeting young people, too many of whom are killing themselves every year. But why would Republicans care about LGBT suicides?
    This is another perfect reason why EVERY REPUBLICAN must be voted out of office. I am sick of watching them damage our country and our people.

    Senator Bill Nelson is recuperating from cancer surgery, and could not attend the vote. You didn't know this, and made that charge against him?

    Kids will bully you for anything. Laws won't change that.

    This is a school, parenting and education issue not a government one. Let's throw money and laws at things and claim victory and walk away icon_rolleyes.gif Stupid

    Most kids don't understand many laws they break or their consequences, that is why they break them, they probably don't understand our system of justice either, how it really works at the K-12 level. It is within our system though, to hold the parents of these bullies accountable for what their children do to other children, so therefore I suggest Al Franken strengthen existing laws that prosecute parents for their child's bad behavior before that behavior turns criminal, we already know that bullying is a taught behavior, within generational families. Trying to legislate the kids rather than the parents would probably prove to be difficult.

    You are considered an "adult" at 18 years of age for a reason. Many of our current laws are made specific for Juvenile court system. Unless this court decides to take up bullying as a crime (unless the bullying leads to a crime or injury), then going after the parents still makes more sense.

    They now have newer versions of this 70's famous documentary, if I was a parent of a bullying teen, I would use these documentary's as a warning or deterrent tool
