Whoa folks, wait a minute here. I rarely log on to Topix anymore (too tedious), but I DID read a few pages of this forum.
I am a Topix old timer, having been a posting veteran since 2007. "WAXMAN"/"OLD GOOBER", aka WAXBALLS/TURDS, and "JEB" are a bi-racial gay COUPLE that live together in CT. "JEB" is anglo (but pathetically tries really hard to sound urban & tough), while WAXTURDS(the SOCIOPATHIC-PSYCHO -RACIST) is black.
They have been notorious trolls on the gay sites for a long time, and it was in the earlier days of Topix (when they had actual profiles w/pics) that they outed themselves. They usually get on Topix at the same time sharing their ignorance at the same time.
Given as they look like a cross between barnyard hogs and Ooompa Loompas from Willie Wonka, they were usually laughed out of the forum (or just ignored).
I am really finding it hard to believe some are legitimately debating with these intellectual lightweight, ID CHANGING, ID STEALING KNUCKLE DRAGGING, CROSS DRESSING TOPIX TROLL CLOSET CASES.
Good morning freak. Looks like you have made more friends on this thread. I see you have plenty of peanuts and it's not me doing it.

ROFLMAO!!!!

That's the prickly side of all these licenses, laws, and regulations, you can have no expectation of privacy when you submit information to a government of the people, for the people, and by the people.
We have become a voyeuristic society that thinks we have the right to know everything; neighbors spying on neighbors, looking up info on everyone they meet; the latest news here: a $100 bonus to report an impaired driver. Soon there will be a law against texting and driving; another reason for the police to pull people over. It's sickening.
Regarding the gun owners info being published; who does that serve?
It's like a roadmap for the gun thieves.

I don't think these people are upset about the presidents reelection as much as how he was reelected. It was their children (young white kids 18 to 25) that actually was the driving force to push the president over the top. These folks thought his victory in"08 was a fluke. Now reality has hit & hit hard, we begin to hear all their bullshit excuses. Oh he's hiding something because he won't show his college transcript. Americans died in benghazi & he lied, blah, blah, blah. As I stated before", a bunch of bullshit"! Their little hearts are broken because their children didn't grow up to be the racist they are & their parents were. Get over it, the man won fair & square & for next 4yrs, the President of The United States of America!
a treasonous bastard is a treasonous bastard no matter what color his skin is and obama is a treasonous bastard.the problem is libs have redefined the term racist to include everyone that disagrees with them, then consider all who dare disagree to be racist and hate them all regaurdless of color. Is there a word or term that defines your type of hate?

The Sudanese government has resisted UN intervention. However, I personally feel that peace-keeping nations should have intervened in Darfur a long time ago...like four presidents ago.
Political prisoners are imprisoned across the globe and sometimes in the worst of human conditions. But Putin, as far as I know, hasn't killed his own people with chemical weapons or buried them in mass graves.
My question to you is why hasn't the UN been more involved in these atrocities and intervening with the force of world leaders behind their efforts? What exactly is their purpose?
When I was watching the movie "Hotel Rwanda" years ago, my heart broke when people were begging for Clinton to intervene and nothing was done.
There are many things I don't understand in this world.

do you consider the blacks that disagree with your views as racist as well, or is there another word you use to show your hate for them?

Just to follow up on that statement, I also believe this country has done more good in the world than bad to make it a better place.

But I'm also glad this old world isn't my home. Too much strife and suffering. Who really would want to live here forever?

I saw a documentary last night called "Happy" about how people live all over the world and what really makes all of us happy.

It was amazing to see how much we have in common with even the poorest among us when it comes to the most important things.

If anyone gets a chance to see it, it's worth watching.

Pardon?

The subject was disgustingly and shamefully invasive rabid dog media, looking for what ever scraps their ignorant vulture claws could grasp in desperation at, publishing (half the time- not even truth) stuff that is essentially-NONE of ANYONE else's business, and worse-not even relevent!! Talk about dark age, UNenlightened, pitchfork baring IGNORANCE of herd pack MENTALity in action.

Loathesome behavior-absolutely deplorable. I hope they get every bit of the ignorance DRAINED from them, via Justified LAWSUITS...dime for dime-right out of their grubby vulture claws.

Endangering OTHER peoples lives like that. They all ought to be thrown in maxiumum security jails for a week, with the REAL criminals, that innocent people try and protect themselves from.

The headlines I posted specifically in reference to the "fiscal cliff" were ABC, NBC and CBS.
CBS has become more like the water boy, but NBC and ABC are definitely still the captains of the Team Obama squad.
As for knowing if the Iraq War was a huge waste of time, lives and money, we won't know that for many years to come.
The longer we ignore atrocities, however, the closer it gets to our own backyard.
I believe that very strongly.
However, we comitted a few ourselves in Germany at the end of WWII dropping fire bombs on innocent people, our treatment of Native Americans and, of course, our complacency and inaction to end slavery for 100 years.
It's because of that, I still hold the conviction we could very well be reaping what we have sown.
Only the retards on the right and their neocon handlers haven't figured out what a colossal disaster Iraq was/is but of course, y'all haven't paid for it yet so its not real to you yet.

That's why people like Christie-they see some REAL integrity in leadership again in him-FOR the People, OF the People and By the People.

I for one, would LOVE to see him run for POTUS in 2016. He has just what this nation needs A LOT more of again-some actual INTEGRITY and backbone to go with it!!!(wouldn't blame him if he didn't either though, who wants to babysit rampant masses of stupid all the time lol)

I think vehicle licensing should be done by the insurers, maybe gun ownership should be treated similarly. I know that in my industry insurers are a far stricter regulator than the NRC. I'm just thinking out loud here and I'd be interested in other's thoughts.

Get a clue!! Your Beloved Democrats voted WITH GWB to use force IN BOTH WARS! Where did Democrats get their info?? Why it was the same Intel that GWB got his but we hear nothing from you clowns!! Why is that? No WMD's? What the hell do you call nerve agents Saddam used on Iranians and his OWN people as hundreds of thousands died from it? Kool- aid?? IT'S KNOWN FACT THAT HE HAD WMD'S!! What is so hard to understand that?? What did Saddam do with them? Archeologists many years from now will probably find them buried thousands of feet underground or he simply had them shipped off to Syria prior to the war! Take your pick! Regardless!!! Saddam had violated U.N. Resolutions from the First Gulf War and that gave us every right to go back in!

Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general. This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished
anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership. He hadn't even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or
commanded a military platoon. So he is made the "Beloved Leader" of North Korea. Terrific.!

I'm sorry. I just remembered that we did the same thing. We took an arrogant community organizer, who had never worn a uniform,
and made him Commander-in-Chief. A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration,
and we made him President of the United States ---- TWICE.!!

Think it was Eugene Cernan (Gemini/Apollo 10 and 17 Astronaut) that made a statement similar to "if all mankind could "look back and see the Earth" as those who have traveled to it's outer limits have, the world would be a better place"...

I think that would be true...for the ones with any real humanity and an actual honest working brain cell to them anyway :-).
