<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>the situation with the way the gay community is treated is probably the most visible and discussed discrimination issue these days. I can't really fault Obama for having a position on that particular form and not one on, say, discrimination against pimply-faced geeks<p><hr></blockquote><p>TBH I don't see any discrimination against gays and lesbians over here in that everyone in my walk of life is quite enlightened and tolerant of diversity. I'm prepared to believe that it exists but I wouldn't say that it's the biggest problem.<br><br>You appreciate I hope that I used twerp and squirts as a metaphor for all forms of insidious discrimination for which there is often no redress including positive discrimination and nepotism. Fist take twerp discrimination itself. This occurs when you don't like the look of someone or have some other irrational prejudice about them. Quite often it works in reverse and it's the twerp who's making the decisions and doesn't want to give anyone an even break who might be a bit too smart and threaten his own vested interests - I've even suffered that kind of discrimination myself. Next rake positive discrimination. A white man is passed over for a job because there is positive discrimination if favour of a black man with similar qualifications. Obama seems to be fine with that because no one's gay but he shouldn't be because it's unfair. Then take nepotism. Everyone in England is settling down to watch an evening TV programme called 'The One Show' when all of s sudden someone called Dan Snow appears on the set and starts rabbiting on about some rubbish or another leaving the whole nation in dismay. Dan Snow? Who the f!@kc is he? Oh I get it Dan Snow, son of Jon Snow the well-known Channel 4 newscaster. <br><br>We've been through all this before - we've had to put up with David Dimbleby on TV for the last 40 years just because his father Richard Dimbleby happened to be a great broadcasting pioneer, phhhhh... I don't know, maybe you don''t have these problems in America... <br><br>km<br><br>

If not, are you against contraception?<p><hr></blockquote><p>Ah now there I don't really have any strong views about it. Given the problem of overpopulation it might on balance be a good thing when it happens but not all inhibitors of population growth are justifiable by the fact alone. Bestiality for example is a population inhibitor but it can corrupt the human spirit and lead to misery and despair and so should be discouraged. .<br><br>km<br><br>

Maybe next time, Michelle should cook macaroni and cheese ~ you know, comfort food. Nobody doesn't like comfort food. In fact, I've read where it's simply impossible to argue about comfort food unless you're the type to argue just for the sake of argument, but then you'd just be arguing with yourself because everybody else would be enjoying the macaroni and cheese and discussing the value, or lack of value, of conversations that are intentionally driven to hump the shark, or the varying merits and differing annoyance levels of intentional run-on sentences.<br><br>I'm just saying.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:white]xx</font color=white>[color:blue]I always deserve it.

The whole of England and 64 per cent of America is currently opposed and yet some patrons are hell-bent on putting up endless specious arguments in favour instead of bowing to the will of the people. <br><br>km <br><br>
Oh I don't know, Lea. The very idea of cheese seems problematic to me. I mean, eating cheese is like deliberately eating mold. Ever think of that? And then there's the making of the macaroni and the cooking of the mac and cheese . . . all of it quite unnatural. As far as I can see, "food" means only things that can be eaten raw, and everything cooked is just an unnatural concoction ( . . . look at the etymology) that demonstrates just how far removed from nature we've become. Furthermore, the very idea of "comfort food" is a sophistication of the natural purpose of food. Food is not supposed to comfort you; it's supposed to sustain you physically so you can go out and hunt and gather and then have sex (by definition, procreate) so you can produce the next generation. Anything else, like eating to get "comfort," is just plain unnatural.<br><br>So remember . . . eat it raw!<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>
