Charlie Wilson dead at 76, we're going to miss him.

Talk about a figure who was larger than life, Charlie Wilson died February 10 2010 and he will be missed, I first heard of the Texas congressman in December 2007 when I went to see the movie with a girl I used to date and fell in love with the story. I read the book a few months later.

While most of America hears that Ronald Reagan won the Cold War, Charlie Wilson's War sheds light on how the armed resistance in Afghanistan was funded by a Democratic House of Representatives that brought the Red Army to it's knees.

We'll miss you Charlie, and you won't be forgotten.

Outlaw homosexuality so says Focus on the Family.

Okay people, it's the year 2010, this nonsense has got to stop. I know the impoverished and ignorant in this country have nothing better to do than hate on gays while secretly hating themselves for having homosexual desires but seriously, if your religious convictions teach you homosexuality is wrong that's fine. But stop trying to rob other people of their privacy and human rights.

In the video below the representative from Focus on the Family blatantly says we should outlaw homosexuality in the United States of America.

We can have freedom and human rights in this country or we can have a theologically influenced government that wrongly focuses on human sexuality influenced by a person's genes while ignoring the real issues, human poverty and suffering.

Grow up, focus on the things that matter, or at least MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!
