different = bad
same = good

I mean, what designer wouldn't make just one mold and stamp out cookie-cutter clones?

As with about 25 percent of your posts, I have no idea what you are talking about. Why don't you state what you want to say clearly.

A friend reminds me that a similar ballot measure in CA passed by 61-39 in 2000. This year, the margin was 52-48. In other words, even when it comes to institutionalized discrimination against homosexuals, the tide is turning pretty rapidly against the cultural conservatives.

One more data point that shows how irrelevant cultural conservatives are becoming.
