ceci2006: I'm the one guilty of bringing up Mr. Lott; not the author.
I see nothing on the front page that would indicate that the CCC is racist. As to your list of Lott votes:
1- Voted NO on adding sexual orientation to definition of hate crimes.
2- Voted NO on expanding hate crimes to include sexual orientation.
3- Voted NO on setting aside 10% of highway funds for minorities & women.
4- Voted YES on ending special funding for minority & women-owned business.
5- Voted YES on prohibiting same-sex marriage.
6- Voted NO on prohibiting job discrimination by sexual orientation.
7- Voted YES on Amendment to prohibit flag burning.
8- Voted YES on banning affirmative action hiring with federal funds
9- Supports anti-flag desecration amendment.
REPLY: 1 and 2 are good things, because the entire idea of "hate crimes" is ridiculous and dangerous. Speech comes from thought. "Thought
Crimes".... does "1984" ring a bell?
3- Tax money collected for highway funds shouldn't be used for anything else, which resulted in his vote for 4.
5- Good vote.
6- It should be up to private business as to who they hire.
7- It wasn't a vote to end flag burning; it was a vote to allow the states decide for themselves, a good thing.
8- Good vote, as it is nothing but reverse-dicrimination.
9- Good vote and idea.
Rated 20% by the ACLU...
REPLY: The ACLU was started by, and continue to be a Communist group, and no-one should care what they think.
REPLY: That's a good thing.
"... what was said during Mr. Thurmond's birthday party..."
REPLY: Whet he said about Thurmond was only to make an old guy feel good, who spent many decades in public service. This does not compare to Byrd,
who actually used the "N" word, twice, on national TV.... and got away with it. Why? Because when you're a Dem, it's different.
If you look back 100 years, you'll find it's the Left that has voted most often to kill the idea of civil liberties for Blacks, and they are still
the ones who do everything they can to keep Blacks on the "Government Plantation."
YES, YES......... So off-topic, and I'm guilty.
