UsernameOpti... : (12 July 2014 - 08:22 PM) Why does the media continue to mistakenly identify anti-TGBL haters as, "pundits?"  Doesn't calling a blithering bigot a "pundit," qualify as oxymoronic?

First, I'm extremely leery of ANY government intervention . I have seen too many times in the past a , "One size fitzall approach " when government tries it's hand at any social agendias . By the way, I'm due to work and attend an Equality  Virginia Dinner Saturday . I'll probably have some VERY interesting observations next week too ! See, they're mostly a very Liberal politicicly active organazation .
