While the homosexual and bisexual communities have been successful in their attempts to obtain normalization within certain aspects of American society, one hurdle they have not been able to overcome is the stigma surrounding gay blood donations due to fears that HIV would taint the blood supply.

According to an audio clip from Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council, the CDC reports that gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men comprise about 2% of the U.S. population. Even with such low population numbers, in 2010, gay and bisexual men accounted for 63% of estimated new HIV infections in the U.S. and 78% of infections among all newly infected men. In spite of this, the Federal Health and Human Services Advisory Committee on Blood and Tissue Safety is considering relaxing the ban on blood donations for some gay men. This is only if they have not had sex with another man in the past year.

Before any changes to the current FDA policy can take place, the new recommendation would need to be adopted by the Blood Products Advisory Committee. Their job would then involve making recommendations to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services where the secretary can decide to adopt, amend or reject the recommendations.

As Vic presented his information, the committee was involved in discussions regarding this topic in Silver Springs, Maryland, with no public input. The discussions will continue through tomorrow and listeners were encouraged to present their views on this topic to the officials listed below.

Michelle Lentz is the state coordinator for the Minnesota Child Protection League Action.

The Minnesota State High School League governs extra-curricular activities at the high school level and are a 501c3 non-profit organization. The Minnesota legislature has authorized schools to hand over the governing of high school athletics to this board so they set the policies and coordinate activities such as running the tournaments. They have decided to push forward a transgender policy that will allow children to choose to participate on the sports team opposite their birth gender. It's called: Gender Identity Participation in MSHSL Activities.

Minnesota Child Protection League Action took out a full-page ad in their largest newspaper when it appeared that the transgender policy would be passed without public input. As a result of the ad, the high school league received 10,000 e-mails, numerous phone calls and over 150 people showed up at the board meeting. The subject was tabled on October 3rd and it was decided to revisit the topic again at their December 4th meeting.

While there have been revisions, Michelle noted that the same essential problems that existed with the first draft also exist with the latest version.

While Michelle doesn't know where the real 'push' is coming from for this effort, there are no state or federal laws that require this or any other transgender policy.

This policy, if passed, may have ramifications outside the realm of public schools in Minnesota and may impact schools in other states as well.

Cheryl Chumley is an award-winning veteran journalist with the Washington Times and also writes about politics and government for various newspapers and Internet news sites. She is noted for her aggressive use of Freedom of Information Act laws to hold officials accountable. She was a year long Robert Novak journalism fellow where she spent extensive time researching and writing about private property rights. She is the author of the newly released, 'Police State U.S.A.: How Orwell's Nightmare is Becoming our Reality'.

Cheryl noted that the phrase, 'police state' is a reference to the state that we're living in within America today where the government infiltrates, encroaches and intrudes on nearly every aspect of our lives.

Her book documents case after case where readers can see how the government is taking over our God-given rights and civil liberties. For example, a man in Henderson, Nevada, was called by police who wanted to use his home as a surveillance point to track a nearby domestic violence situation. After refusing, 5 men showed up demanding entry. After refusing a second time they broke his door down, pepper sprayed him, shot his dog, ordered him around and ultimately arrested him for obstruction.

On this Crosstalk you'll learn...

--What 'fusion centers' are.
--The kind of information the government may be gathering on you.
--How store mannequins are being used to gather information.
--Why is the government involved in domestic militarization?
--The EPA's involvement in the 'police state' movement.
--How political correctness is killing us.

...and much more.

Last evening a grand jury came to the conclusion that Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed teenager Michael Brown, will not face criminal charges.

Vic noted that during the initial unrest, 75% of the the arrests indicated that a majority of the people who came to protest were from outside the Ferguson area. Last evening, however, the majority of the arrests were people from the Ferguson area.

Vic then went on to show how the media has irritated the situation by including key words in their headlines. He specifically read one headline that had inflammatory words related to race and a lack of firearms possession.

Other elements to this story that were mentioned include the response to the decision from Brown's parents, comments from President Obama and action taken by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon.

Other news items presented included:

--White House quietly releases plans for a massive regulatory agenda ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

--EPA regulations predicted to increase the average energy bill by $680 per year.

--Atlanta fire chief suspended over a book he wrote describing homosexuality as a perversion.

--On Sunday the United Arab Emirates officially released its news list containing the names of what it considers dangerous Muslim terrorist groups. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is on this list.

--CAIR is targeting one of the nations largest taxpayer funded institutions of higher learning-the University of Central Florida. A tenured communications professor is being targeted by CAIR for allegedly teaching anti-Muslim bigotry.

--Jihad bomber murders 45 people at volleyball game.

--Islam sneaks into Tennessee textbooks.
