Am I the only one that thinks things like these have been pushed to the forefront of our attention as a distraction from some of the more pressing issues with our country (USA). Why the hell does it matter if the president supports abortion or not, he is not going to be able to change Roe vs. Wade. Why is gayness even being discussed, I thought this was a secular country (seperation between church and state) and religious issues like this should not be even in the front of our debates, yet the media always seems to be pushing it and crap.
I just think that alot of these little issues come up and distract us from some of the real problems, like us spending enough money to feed the whole world maybe 6 times over on a war we shouldn't be in. Maybe issues like how the bleep your going to stop or slow down the fall of our currency. Or how about issues like why 1/3 of American adults don't have health care and it is being run like a business for profit. Maybe a debate on how the money for war could be put into more education programs so maybe we can move up a few spots on the education ladder (Compared to the world, our children are retarded).
/Rant, anyway whats your opinions on this.
