Ask yourself why is it that most of the Crimean people appear perfectly happy to join up with Russian Federation? Could it be that Russia is a wealthy country with more Job opportunities, and Ukraine a financial basket case? State pensions, free health care and social benefits are far higher in Russia than in the bankrupted Ukraine's creaking system. "Ukraine don't have a pot to piss in" slang for a state with no money. The Crimean people are still partying days after the referendum, Putin knew he would get the popular vote so organized the referendum to make it legal. It seems to me that the West has created the problem between Ukraine and Russia by trying to entice the Ukraine into the EU, and therefore, NATO. Crimea is and always will be of strategic importance to Russia. It is obvious that Russia could not allow its Black Sea fleet base to be incorporated into NATO and jeopardize its fleet's access to the Mediterranean Sea. It would be like Plymouth, home of the British Navy being part of the Eastern Block or Warsaw Pact as it was previously known. It is ironic that an organization set up to prevent war, EU, could be the catalyst to start one. The other twist to everything is the two faced hypocrisy of the West when you compare the US & UK have invaded scores of countries: Iraq, Afghanistan to name a few, and always, always posited as a righteous invasion. When was the last time Russia invaded a country? I'd say Afghanistan in the 1980s, the West supported the equivalent of the Taliban against Russia then; when the US % GB invaded Afghanistan a some years ago they asked Russian for assistance to fight the very same people they condemned in the 80s ...the Russians.

Chanelle Originally Answered: To those that oppose gay marriage what do you think about this?
This is for the previous posters. I'm not straight, but I couldn't help but say something to them because nobody else is. Sure marriage is supposedly supposed to be between a man and a woman. But lest we forget that our government is supposed to have a separation of church and state. Oh and we can't forget the freedom and freedom of religion our founding fathers fought for, If marriage is supposed to be a religious term then it has no business in law. In that case, everyone should have a civil union and the term "marriage" should be left to the churches who treasure it so much. Also it's easy to vote against something that won't even effect you. Do you think you're being a good follower of Jesus just because you are voting against gay marriage? Didn't God say "thou shalt not judge"? and also Love thy neighbor... I mean the quote list I can bring up goes on and on... Just because the asker's sister had sex before marriage doesn't make her a liberal. Sarah Palin's daughter had pre-marital sex, and didn't even marry the baby's father. Generalizations such as the one made about liberals is what perpetuates the stereotype of Republican/conservatives being bigots and not informed. (oh and don't assume that I'm liberal just because I gave you a slap on the wrist. I'm an independent and consider myself centralist) And now to my favorite part. How the hell do you make the jump from human to the rest of the animal kingdom? I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that there are few people who are actually "attracted" to other species. From an evolutionary standpoint that would mean the death of our species. In regards to straight marriages being so perfect. Considering how high the divorce rate is, I think not. Sanctity of marriage my ***!!! Um,Is Las Vegas not famous for it's shotgun weddings? Love is Love. Why do you think you have the right to say who can marry who? I don't tell you what you can or can't do.

" The risk of anal cancer soars for those engaging in anal intercourse. According to one report, it rises by an astounding 4000%, and doubles again for those who are HIV positive. Can anyone refute that anal intercourse tears the rectal lining of the receptive partner, regardless of whether a condom is worn, and the subsequent contact with fecal matter leads to a host of diseases?" A) If I get HIV it's my own choice. B) It's my anus, I'll do what I want with it. C) You don't know the number of times I've heard this 'but don't you know what they *do*? They have sex... with other men's bums! Ew!" defense so many many times; and usually by straight men that would have no problem having anal sex with a girl, would brag about it in fact. So can some doctor please tell me what's so different between men's anuses and women's? Do men's bums secrete some sort of neurotoxin, or is it that women's bums squirt a blast of 'Calvin Klein's 'Obsession'' periodically? Having not bee near a woman's anus in years I've forgotten how they work. PS "mainstream is for suckers": I can't actually think of anything more mainstream than holding an outdated political opinion with the weight of nothing more than tradition which marginalises an entire group of people who have had enough to put up with. Why should you have a say in their lives? mainstream wannabe. Iscole488: "The alternate life style will be accepted and taught in public schools,"...yes, just the other day I passed by a class of chldren learning how to be gay! They were singing, dancing (mostly Liza); making sequinned dresses, it was faaaabulous!... (lifestyle taught in school? Why, do they teach kids how to be hetero as well? Thought not. What a ridiculous suggestion) If you could really teach sexuality in schools, I'd have been straight the amount I got it beaten into me. But I'm not, because THAT'S RIDICULOUS. "churches will be forced to accept the lifestyle they recognize as an abomination and sin," I for one would be happy if churches didn't want to marry gays; why would I want to marry in an institution that secretly hates me? Giev me a beach in Thailand for my wedding any day. Churches smell. "health insurance companies will be forced to accept coverage for the high risk lifestyle" Ah yes, I forgot, married people don't have affairs, don't catch HIV, or gonhorrea, or chlamydia, or syphilis; married people don't experiment with their sexuality (when they finally hit 40 and realise all the c0ck they never ate), and when they do, they do it in the most repsonsible way possible, because they haven't been repressed into denying it for years and so they always know how to have sex safely; married people also don't ever ever EVER use drugs. Being high-risk and irresponsible isn't specific to sexuality; it's called the human condition.

What are you talking about Independence's ? The Russian's have NO independents in their language, its their TOTAL rule or nothing. For the most part, this whole staged scam is all via Moscow, as for a referendum, its all for show.

Youkahainen Originally Answered: Are those who 'oppose' evolution all from the USA?
Not so- a rising "star" in the creationist world is Adnan Oktar, a Turkish Muslim who goes by the pen name of Harun Yahya (after the prophets Aaron and John.) Oktar/Yahya has been flooding American universities with his well-constructed books about creationism. Too bad the writing is utter nonsense, for the illustrations are breathtaking. As a consequence, Turkey has a higher rate of creationists than the USA. The movement in my country is led by The Discovery Institute, which has largely gone into hiding after the Dover Trial of 2005, and the recent decision by the state of Florida to require evolutionary biology as part of the curricula. The DI issued a tepid response to Florida's actions. As an American, I'm hoping the tsunami of irrationalism inspired by Reagan and nurtured by both Bushes and ignored by Clinton is on the decline. In the UK, I urge citizens to be wary of the creationist Peter Vardy and his "faith schools." Addendum- the misleading anti-evolution statement by scientists is again put forth by a sucker for the Discovery Institute. Few of these scientists work in biology or physics. Most are engineers who do not concern themselves beyond their field (unlike my father, an engineer who became a physicist and always accepted evolution.) The National Center For Science Education, with great mirth, began "Project Steve" (in honor of Steven J. Gould) and invited any scientist supporting evolutionary biology to sign on: the only requirement was that their first name be Steven or Stephanie or any form of the name Steven. They have far more signatories than the Discovery Institute, with a strict rule in place.
