Given the current uhmerican attitude of separate but equal american salad bowl (now I understand what the term tossing salad means) where everyone's shit is supposed to smell differently, I see why we have in-fighting:
America's new Gay problem (flavor of the day) domestic priority for a long long time has been ignored. It's really the issue of Justice (and money for it), an issue which is virtually non-existent in donkeyphantican America, and a system which requires your coffers to be adequate from blackmail to accusation for all. Essentially, you have to be able to afford justice or sell yourself to a PR advertising scheme to get it.
As far as the Gay Homosexual problem, perhaps the Republicans should have went something more along the lines of domestic compansionship/civil union route. I don't know what's so difficult about creating a certified roster of who is allowed to visit someone in the emergency room. So many rules of redundancy on the books.
From Homosexual-Americans to Polysexual-Americans, I find that most Americans really don't want to be treated equal through their political ineptitude.
Let's all be Americans. And let's all contribute.
