    Well then it just goes to show you that it's not about breast cancer for those people. It's about something else.

    It also goes to show you that there was no need for Komen to be giving the money in the first place. Clearly, Planned Abortionhood can secure the funds they "need" through other sources without sullying a good organization who is out there actually trying to save lives.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    Why are you such an activist. It is clearly more than just another topic for you.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Posting on a message board makes me an activist? That's a pretty low threshhold for activism. It interests me as the ultimate "beating a dead horse" topic that people persist in hashing over and over and over when it has been long since resolved - and there's always a point at which someone who's "pro life" expresses the wish that someone on the other side had been aborted, which is intrinsically amusing.

    Not to mention signifying a lasting commitment to your girlfriend.

    Now that Komen is out of the abortion business, I'm thinking about volunteering for one of their walks. There's one coming up in the DC area, and I just have to work it around my schedule.

    I was all set to do the three day walk one year, but they wanted me to camp out with everyone - wouldn't let me go home and sleep in my own comfortable bed at night. So I wrote a check, but wouldn't do the walk. I wouldn't "camp out" if it meant an immediate cure to ALL cancer.

    Civilians...

    I was looking at that three day walk. It's 20 miles per day, which is a pretty good pace (Roman legions averaged 25 on the march, with all of their gear). Our basic training graduation ruck march was 18 miles in one night, with full winter gear and packs. We were carrying about 3/4 of our body weight in additional crap, and it hurt. The camping is no big deal. I have a small tent and I can set myself up quite comfortably, but I'll have to see what we're expected to carry on our backs, vs. what we can have transported. If I have to carry everything, it's going to be too much for these old bones.

    At the Komen walk, I don't think you have to carry much of anything. And yes, as a civilian, I don't HAVE to sleep on the ground. :p

    From what they say on the website, they have their own sleeping tents, which apparently include cots, and for those who want to incur the expense, they have approved hotels that you can stay at, but I don't see you roughing it at a three-star facility. :D
