Posted by Zman Looks like the busy bodies at Million Mom's March think they can tell TV networks what programming they can show The New Norman Million Mom's March Boycotts New NBC sitcom. From the article. "NBC is using public airwaves to continue to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and the sanctity of marriage in attempting to redefine marriage. These things are harmful to our society, and this program is damaging to our culture." Fist off they are a TV network and can show what ever they want with in FCC guidelines. NBC or any other network is not required to support or encourage any type of values. Not sure how they are attempting to redefine marriage simply by showing a sitcom. that argument makes no sense. Don't like it don't watch it. Also how is this program harmful to our culture. If they mean harmful to the culture of hate and bigotry then that is a good thing. Also from the article. "Millions of Americans strongly believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman. NBC's "The New Normal" is attempting to desensitize America and our children. It is the opposite of how families are designed and created. You cannot recreate the biological wheel." Millions of Americans might believe that but that does not make them right and thankfully that attitude is changing. At one time Millions of Americans thought women should not vote and slavery was OK, and later separate but equal bathrooms for black people were acceptable. So to say "millions of Americans" think something is not a valid reason. Another point is to suggest that it is somehow harmful to children is also silly and an argument I think most Americans just don't buy. How is it harmful to teach chldren to respect others and treat them right. Oh wait, that's something Christ might have done and we can't have that now can we. As far as "reinventing the biological wheel, homosexuality is found in some 450 species, so it sounds like biology is on the side of homosexuality. also it is a TV show, they are not trying to reinvent anything. It's about time we show these groups they don't have the right to bully companies and TV networks. contact the Million Mom's March and tell them they need to stop pushing their outdated homophobic ideas on everyone and stop being such busy bodies. Then contact the advertisers of this show and tell them you support them and you hope they will support this show and not vgive in to the small few who think they can bully everyone else. From the article "OMM is prepared to contact any and all sponsors of this program if it is aired. It is proven this strategy works" They might want to check that statement because it clearly does not. The facts show that most people don't pay attention to the silliness of Million Mom's March. Thankfully the attitude about same sex marriage is changing and soon groups like Million Mom's March will be a thing of the past relegated to the history books and laughed about.

Let me introduce you to the dumbest person in America. Republican Horrified to Learn school vouchers cover all religious Schools. Some quotes from the article linked above. "I actually support funding for teaching the fundamentals of America's Founding Fathers' religion, which is Christianity, in public schools or private schools. I liked the idea of giving parents the option of sending their children to a public school or a Christian school." It is pretty sad to think that someone in congress is this dumb. "We need to insure that it does not open the door to fund radical Islam schools. There are a thousand Muslim schools that have sprung up recently. I do not support using public funds for teaching Islam anywhere here in Louisiana." I'd like to know where she got this number from. Hate to break this to her but if your going to have school vouchers for one religious school you have to allow them for all. Also to call all Muslims radical shows just how racist she really is. We need to get people like this out of office. I hope she gets raked over the coals for this.

Received this in an email today and thought I'd pass it along. (finally an email forward that is useful LOL) Here are some things to do to make sure your pets are happy during the 4th of July weekend. • Resist the urge to take your pet to fireworks displays. • Do not leave your pet in the car. With only hot air to breathe inside a car, your pet can suffer serious health effects—even death—in a few short minutes. Partially opened windows do not provide sufficient air, but they do provide an opportunity for your pet to be stolen. • Keep your pets indoors at home in a sheltered, quiet area. Some animals can become destructive when frightened, so be sure that you’ve removed any items that your pet could destroy or that would be harmful to your pet if chewed. Leave a television or radio playing at normal volume to keep him company while you’re attending Fourth of July picnics, parades, and other celebrations. • If you know that your pet is seriously distressed by loud noises like thunder, consult with your veterinarian before July 4th for ways to help alleviate the fear and anxiety he or she will experience during fireworks displays. • Never leave pets outside unattended, even in a fenced yard or on a chain. In their fear, pets who normally wouldn’t leave the yard may escape and become lost, or become entangled in their chain, risking injury or death. • Make sure your pets are wearing CURRENT/UPDATED identification tags so that if they do become lost, they can be returned promptly. Animals found running at-large should be taken to the local animal shelter, where they will have the best chance of being reunited with their owners. • If you plan to go away for the holiday weekend and take you pet, PLEASE make sure to be EXTRA careful. Your canine friend will not know where they are if they escape. Best to leave at home with a responsible dog sitter that understands the above rules or in a reputable boarding facility.
