Health survey gives government
its first large-scale data on gay,
bisexual population

Washington Post, by Sandhya Somashekhar

Posted By:jackson, 7/16/2014 10:13:02 AM

Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation. The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual. The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey. An additional 1.1 percent declined to answer, responded “I don’t know the answer” or said they

Jeepers! I thought it had to be 50%, considering all the attention it brings. Note - this is in the Health section of the WP. There is nothing "healthy" about sodomy.

So does that mean that the illegals are "currently" a larger voting block than LGBTers? HA-HA

So, approximately 3% of the population decides what we get for entertainment and live style? It´s time to re-boot!

How many answers are like the one I used to give when asked my race or national origin: none of the above.

Less than 3% of the people are attempting an overthrow of the culture of our country. Pretty sad that the left is letting them get away with it.

The US, where:
* Less than 3% of the population is sexually abnormal (by definition)
* 12-13% of the population is black
* About 55% of the world´s lawyers "practice" law
* And whose leader hates the country that elected him...

And the sentient among us bemoan the corruption of our culture and the rapid descent of this country into third world (at best) status.

According to a Pew Research poll earlier this month,78.4% of Americans define themselves as Christian.

The Constitution guarantees he freedom of religion.

Yet Christianity has been attacked, and the rights of Christians have been margianilized to an extreme extent.

If 1.6% of the population can cause such an uproar, why can´t we, the 78.4% get really loud and demand our rights and freedoms?!?!?!?!?

Reading the study, it´s 1.6% gay and lesbian. Adding in the bisexuals it´s just over 2%.

"Less than 3%" fixes 3% in the mind, but rounding it´s 2%.

However, it´s probably higher because I think there´s still a resistance to telling the government your business even among people willing to talk.

For journalists, the dog days of August are the worst. Nothing happens because Congress and the rest of you are all on vacation. So now is the time for whatever quirky column has been niggling at the back of one’s mind, waiting for a break in the news cycle. Unfortunately, even if nothing has been niggling, your deadline still beckons. So it’s also the time for thumb-suckers about America in the 21st century, homages to parenthood, wild speculations about what sort of electronic devices our grandchildren will use, or anything else that will fill the requisite inches.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie plans to lead a delegation of officials to Mexico next month, aides said Thursday. But the Republican’s trip has nothing to do with the border crisis on the southern border. The purpose, an aide said, is to “promote increased trade, economic growth, job creation and higher education in both New Jersey and Mexico through enhanced relations.” “Governor Christie will meet with various Mexican business leaders, tour local companies and visit with dignitaries and government officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto,” the Christie aide said.

Obama’s Bold Order on Bias

“Our government of the people, by the people and for the people will become just a little bit fairer,” said President Obama on Monday just before signing an executive order prohibiting federal contractors, which employ 20 percent of the nation’s work force, from discriminating against gay men, lesbians and transgender people in their employment practices. “We’re on the right side of history,” Mr. Obama correctly declared regarding this important measure, which also explicitly protects federal employees against discrimination based on gender identity, a category covering transgender employees (bias based on sexual orientation was already prohibited).

Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died this morning at 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that it was a suicide, they did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.” Williams, who won an Oscar for his supporting role in Good Will Hunting, will reprise his role as Theodore Roosevelt in the third installment of Night at the Museum this December.

The decision by Sen. John Walsh (D-Mont.) not to seek election in November in the wake of a plagiarism scandal is the latest piece of good news for Republicans as they strive to take control of the Senate in less than three months. Walsh’s departure from the race came in the same week that two Republican senators — Pat Roberts in Kansas and Lamar Alexander in Tennessee — defeated tea party challengers in primary fights, ensuring that every GOP senator seeking reelection would be the party’s nominee. These past seven days typified the fates of the two parties this election

The president who spent years touting the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq suddenly has had to distance himself from that action. At the White House on Saturday morning — less than 48 hours after authorizing airstrikes against Islamist militants and humanitarian air drops to save the lives of trapped Iraqi civilians — President Obama blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the absence of American troops in Iraq and rejected the assertion that he could have left a small peacekeeping force in the war-torn nation. He uttered those after three years, and a successful re-election campaign, in which

President Obama must really be teed off. Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid. Obama responded with not one but two rounds of golf. Clinton, in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg published by the Atlantic over the weekend, offered a withering comment on the Obama doctrine, described in shorthand by White House officials as “don’t do stupid [expletive].” Said Clinton: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.” As the criticism became public, Obama was doggedly sticking with

It didn´t take long for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) to embrace amnesty again. As soon as he won his Senate primary election against conservative Joe Carr, Alexander said it was "embarrassing" that Republicans have not yet passed a bill. Never mind that Alexander spent nearly his entire primary campaign trying to convince voters that he was against "amnesty" and would never dare to embrace it before the primary election. “I don’t know how it will affect our politics in the near term," Alexander told Politico of a comprehensive immigration bill. “I think it’s embarrassing for us not to deal with the problem, and

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh argued Tuesday that Robin Williams committed suicide because of his “leftist world view.” “What is the left’s world view in general?” Mr. Limbaugh asked listeners. “If you had to attach, not a philosophy, but an attitude to a leftist world view. It’s one of pessimism, and darkness, sadness. They’re never happy, are they?” (snip) “[Liberals] are animated in large part by the false promises of America, because the promises of America are not for everyone,” he said. “He had it all, but he had nothing.

Hillary Clinton and congressmen alike have called on Obama to arm Syria’s rebels. But the president fumed at lawmakers in a private meeting for suggesting he should’ve done more. President Obama got angry at lawmakers who suggested in a private meeting that he should have armed the Syrian rebels, calling the criticism “horseshit.” The argument that America should have done more in Syria, made for years by foreign policy leaders in both parties and several members of Obama’s senior national security team, was brought back to the fore this past weekend. Obama and Hillary Clinton gave dueling interviews in which they publicly

An Isis commander at a terrorist training camp north of Baghdad accidentally detonated a belt packed with explosives during a demonstration in front of a group militants on Monday, killing himself and 21 nearby trainees. The accident was a source of dark humour for locals, with suicide attacks in public spaces having become an almost daily occurrence in Iraq. A bomber struck a falafel shop near the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad last week, and when told of the bungled training demonstration by the New York Times, Raad Hashim, who works at a liquor store near the site of

President Barack Obama hinted at the possibility of an upcoming vacancy on the Supreme Court Monday during a fundraiser for Senate Democrats. Speaking to a group of donors to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on a break from his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Obama said he needs Democrats to hold a majority this year to fill vacancies to the high court. “What’s preventing us from getting things done right now is you’ve got a faction within the Republican Party that thinks solely in terms of their own ideological purposes and solely in terms of how do they hang on to
