    Look where homosexuality and the acceptance and celebration of it got the greeks and romans. I would hardly call that the 'best of what everyone has to offer'. Should've tossed that one out with the chaffe...

    Copying a bunch of societies that eventually failed doesn't seem like an awesome idea to me...perhaps just a tad counterproductive.

    Google pederasty in Greece and Rome...They were pretty big on that in ancient times. They even thought it boosted troop morale and believed it was good for their military. Is that what is next for America? Are we going to follow them into that as well?

    This has gone beyond the absurd.

    Our system of gov't is patterned after Greek and Roman systems of governance. That doesn't mean you need to bag the page-boys....somebody forgot to tell the republcian senators that. Our justice system is patterned largely afte old English law. Nothing wrong with that. We took a good idea and made it better.

    One might think (and hope) so, but I hear they are slathering grease on the proverbial slope right about now...

    History repeats itself, remember? If it was thought to be good for the Greek military, some left wing nutjob might think it isn't such a bad thing to try out in the good ol' US.

    Maybe these guys would be all for it...

    Whaaaaaaaat?

    This has definately won the gold medal for absurdity!

    I comment on America's melting-pot strength, multicultural assets...and you go yelling gay pride from the mountaintop???

    I'm outta this one. You know what I meant, but you and gibson are hell-bent on twisting everything into the absurd.

    Have a good one!

    (and please don't interpret that in any other way than to have a good day....no muslim extreme days, no yelling f@ggot from the mountain top......just have a good GD effing DAY!!!!)

    Don't Worry,
    I guarantee none of this will matter come spring time when the snow melts and the Mississippi crests.
    I am sure everyone will welcome the Army National Guard and itís protective dykes.
