"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments." McDonald's Hamburgers USA (yes, the Golden Arches people) labels people who oppose same sex marriage as "haters."  Note paragraph 4:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/07/03/AR2008070303769.html

We are so short of refinery capacity that we import refined gasoline.  BP wants to expand its refinery in Indiana.  An environmental group, Natural Resources Defense Council, has filed a lawsuit that challenges air permits Indiana granted to BP's refinery:   http://www.cnsnews.com/public/content/article.aspx?RsrcID=32183

..... and worse.  In Britain the largely government funded National Children’s Bureau has now issued guidelines to nursery teachers, instructing them to be alert for “racist” incidents. If a child as young as 3, reacts with “yuk” to spicy food, this is to be regarded as racism:  http://www.brusselsjournal.com/node/3401

The integrity (NOT) of Democrat electioneering.  This is a fund raising record from several years ago of a campaign in a district south of Houston, Texas.  Note particularly the donations from Democrat campaigns in other states, and from tax supported groups.  Why would Democrats campaigns in California, Washington state, Illinois, New York, and other states donate to a Democrat campaign in SE Texas?  The answer is because they were directed to by the Democrat National HQ.  It is how Democrats subvert the campaign fund raising laws and make their candidates responsive to the DNC instead of local voters:  http://www.congress.org/congressorg/bio/fec/?id=562&cycle=2005-2006
