Think anyway you want. Just don't ridicule anyone who doesn't agree with you. People are entitled to their opinions whether you like them or not.

If it is a mute point then no one would have heard of it. However if you meant moot... where have you seen pro life, whatever that means, bashing in Detroit?

how about our past leader getting his D sucked?
------------------------------ ------------------

I was thinking the other day what a great contribution Bill's hummer made to modern society. His claim that, "He did not have sex with that women", has been embraced by the generation that grew up when he was President. Teens are participating in oral sex at a much younger age, and they also don't consider it sex. It's pretty much a standard procedure for young ladies to now use oral sex as a means of putting off other sexual activity, thus saving themselves for marriage.

...and before you ask, yes I am. :-)

Michigan, especially the Detroit-metro shouldn't be concerned with anything more than our economy at this point. Issues like blow jobs, abortions, and gay rights don't really seem that important when you don't have the job and the bank wants the house back.

gmich- they are important issues to be considered. Have you ever read "the rise of the creative class" by Richard Florida? IF you want to attract business and I am talking about middle class professionals you need to have the three T's
1)Talent
2) Tolerance
3) Technology

IF you want to attract talent which generates higher income jobs they will want to move to an area that is tolerant. The creatice classes wnat to thrive in ares like Frisco, Chicago, NYC...they will give up money and livability lifestyle (ie a house versus aprt) for a life that is exciting and mentally challenging. Those areas attract diversity thus a high tolerance level.

No, have not read the book, but I am inclined to agree with the three points made. I read an article a while back saying what detroit was missing that other vibrant metropolitan areas had was a large gay population. Perhaps someone here is familiar with the article and will be able to provide a link.

Detroit needs about 50,000 more gays. We tend to make things pretty! Once we fix it up the families typically come back. Fifteen years ago Boystown in Chicago was fairly bleak - now it is thriving and you are more likely to see lots of str8 couples with strollers there these days.

So many people are scared of diversity - why? I live in Detroit on one of the most diverse streets in the city. My next neighbors are str8 partnered couple 10 years together (asian/white couple), on the other side a single black woman raising a child on her own, next to them a mixed race couple (black/white) who are a little crazy but fun, across the street a cellist with the symphony and next to her is a union worker at GM, we have a Lebanese family, a couple white familys and several black families with kids, another mixed race couple wiht kids (black/white)a Chinese couple, and three GAY households and one kind of weird grumpy old lady. It is a cool street with fun and diverse people. When we have our summer BBQs we all love the Lebanese food. It is a nice place to live and I would never trade it for all of the same of anything.

Bong, I don't know if you were serious, but believe me, that is not the reason there was a lot of sex going around when I was in High school.

I really doubt most high school kids could give two shits what the president says, much less have it affect their sex lives.

Nah...It's Friday, and sometimes I like to bait people. Plus, I think that whole episode was almost as goofy as the "pubic hair on the coke can".
