I could give a shit less about a bunch of socialistic or fascist or commie EU countries.
French people are kind of dickish as a whole, but yeah... they made a sovereign decision to not march blindly off to war with us and for some reason we cant forgive them for it.

The gay rights movement is legitimate history. You simply can't argue that issues some right wingers have described as "the most important of our time" aren't history and history in the making.
And absent the stupidity of some comments, the AIDS epidemic is also history, and probably should be included with discussions of tuberculosis, flu, yellow fever, and its treatment would also fall into major medical advances if not for the number of people affected worldwide, but because of the leaps and bounds which have occurred in immunology and anti-virals which benefit everyone.
