Politics Nothing goes with politics quite like crying and complaining, and we're a perfect example of that.

HB, you know and I know that the above is nothing but a double-speak excuse.

A check from the Smithsonian pays for the water, power, and upkeep. A check from the Smithsonian pays these freaks to display their "art", even against the will of the majority (sounds like the Smithsonian is run by democrats).

It's the same 'ol same 'ol blatent hypocracy. If a Christian group were to sponsor a Nativity scene on federal property, although there's not one penny of taxpayer money spent on the scene itself, do you think that would make it all hunky-dory to the aclu?

It's along the lines of using the kkk to represent Christians. Not anywhere near as ridiculous and dishonest, but along the same lines.

Absolutely! Federal funds contribute to these displays, Because without that money, the Smithsonian would be out of business and there would be no displays.

Some of us, my wife and I for instance, don't want to pay for 65% of the funding to display this kind of garbage.

I'm going to back out now. I've just realized that I've broken our rule about double-teaming on a thread. Stephanie practiced with her muzzleloader yesterday and is now cleaning it with soap and water and making some soup. I hope she doesn't mix up the two.

If you have a color TV but don't have cable, are you still not a bigot?

look people...i dont wanna pay for it either, but the fact is, that private party's paid for this display...no 2 ways about it. the post is stating your tax dollars paid for the display its self..lets be real!!!!!!!!! your tax dollars are paying for other things in history that truely were important...and we want them to be here fer our great great great great grandkids to look at, enjoy and learn.
