I certainly agree with you on that. It is hard to figure theworst disaster, Tillis, Perdue, or politicos in general.

You would think the governor would be for keeping down health costs. Some people have said that the health plan and aids will be the combination that bankrupts our nation.
Huh.

Hm.

This sounds familiar

Bigotry is the state of mind of a "bigot", a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one who exhibits intolerance or animosity toward members of a group.
Bigotry may be based on real or perceived characteristics, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, nationality, region, language, religious or spiritual belief, political alignment, age, economic status or disability.
Describes the anti-amendment folks on this board to a T, and they all get a pass.
