    What is it with conservatives and bestiality?

    Conservatives may think they have good reason to embrace a Constitutional amendment purporting simply to guarantee privacy without qualification. They would be wrong. Such an amendment, which would be broadly drafted, opens the door to sweeping interpretations unless clarified along the lines of protecting parental rights and in cases in which the right to privacy conflicts with the law… Society runs the dangerous risk, in this permissive age, of sanctioning activities such as sex with minors, beastiality, hard-core pornography.

    I just have serious doubts that, if it were suddenly legal, we’d be overrun with Catherine the Great wannabes. But I run in fairly liberal circles. Maybe the other side of the political aisle knows their hearts better than I do.

    And to keep this from being totally OT, the obligatory home education quote:

    Conservatives place great precedence on common law and thus respect the right to have one’s home free of governmental intrusion. Certainly, homeschoolers understand that.

    He managed to use the term slippery slope at least twice in that article. I’d say it’s a very deliberate and probably coordinated attempt to stir up the sheeple for the Nov elections.

    It would seem the GOP has tapped into the “‘People Who Are Afraid of Everything” market and this is just another thing to be afraid of. Sadly, it also seems the more fear they throw at these people, the wider they open their wallets. It’s that same old “give us your money and we’ll hate for you, so you don’t have to be a person that hates” only it’s “give us your money and we’ll stop this fearful thing for you.” It’s doubtful they can, but they’ll still take your money.

    It actually seems that they are preying on these folk’s mental illness; gotta be a name for someone who is fearful of all things that in all probability will never affect their lives directly.

    So send my your money and I’ll personally worry for you. I’m very good at that.

    Mary, fearful of people who eat spam

    I have never been able to understand how A = XYZ.
    Maybe they are doing some sort of ‘new’ math. 😉
