Never heard that one before.

Hmmmmmm ... Did you read it in a Biography or Historical Record?

Lincoln was Homosexual.

Perhaps that "supposition" depends on WHO wrote it, contingent upon ONE'S intentions toward Lincoln's reputation (?).

<quoted text>
You've gotten so you almost make more sense when you're being Methmouth Tourettes..."
When children are not happy about being the sex they are

A few children feel deeply unhappy about being a boy or being a girl.

This can be a problem when a child continues to believe he or she is, or wishes he or she was, the other sex. Because it is not usually possible for people to change their sex (at least until they are grown up and then it is very difficult) it is very important that they can be happy with themselves as they are.
This kind of problem can start from birth or before, or at a very early age.
Usually if the child really wishes to be the other sex you will notice:
persistent cross dressing especially into the primary school years
always playing with other sex's toys (for example a boy always wanting to play with toys that are usually thought of as girls' toys)
usually drawing the other sex (for example boys usually drawing pictures of girls and women)
the child persistently saying that she belongs to the other sex or wishes she was
the child persistently saying that when she grows up she will be the other sex.
Sometimes parents worry that children who go on dressing in the clothes of the other sex over a long period of time will be homosexual.
Even though homosexuality is accepted as a normal expression of sexuality for some people, parents may worry that their children will be unhappy or may feel uncomfortable about it themselves.
Many children do not grow up to be transgendered or homosexual, however some do."

The loudest voices against gay marriage are conservative Repubicans. Probably most of it coming from the Southern Bible Belt.
Carol is like a starving rat willing to gnaw on any piece of stale cheese she can sink her teeth into. Who really cares about gay marriage with so many other major issues out there?
Apparently in California, blacks and Hispanics were the loudest voices, and mostly democrats.

Since 1998, the issue of gay marriage was brought to the ballot 32 times and voters have gone to the polls and voted against it. Gay marriage is prohibited in 38 states even “blue” states like California, Oregon and Delaware.

People on both sides of the aisle don't like redefining the cornerstone of society - marriage and family - which was once considered a sacred institution.

When people deny God, they need to fill the void with some other type of compassion. Liberals fill the void with a self defined compassion that gives the illusion of real love. They, lacking any internal conviction of charity, urine an external agent, the government, as an artificial machine-like entity, to Olmert artificial actions of love. That is why they "pretend" to care about nature, the body, children, women, minority, etc. Their is a reaction to an internal emptiness they know, but they need to fill even if in an artificial manner.

Their ideas are feeling based even if the consequences are destructive and accomplish the opposite of what they want.

For example, they will rather feed a hungry man than teach him to fish. Feeding a hungry man gives them a quick satisfaction that they can brag about it to convince others and themselves of a compassion they really do not have.

Conservatives on the other have will postpone the instant gratification of feeding the hungry man and will involve on the tedious difficult and error prone task of teaching the man to fish.

Conservatives know the task of teaching a man to fish is full of potential setbacks, frustrations and lack of guarantees, but they also know the final result will be worth it even if it takes a long time to achieve. While in the process of teaching the hungry man is fed. Not to create dependency but to continue the task of learning so he or she can stand on its own.

That explains why Newt Gingrich offer to teach kids to work in school was rabidly resisted by the Liberals. Teaching a kid to work is not feeding a hungry man. However, feeding kids breakfast, lunch and dinner with other people's money does creates the appearance of caring so much for them that they are willing to steal money from working tax payer for it.

Teaching kids the habit of work, especially in school, is full of risks and "dangers". The danger that most of those learning the good habits of work might end up being black and that will be perceived as racism.

And "racism" breaks the Liberal fantasy that they are the only ones who care to feed the black hungry kids.

Obama has been rated as the 4th best president ever.
A study group recently released its findings as to the best presidents of the United States of America. Here are the figures:
* Reagan and 9 others tied for first
* 15 presidents tied for second
* 18 tied for third
* Obama came in fourth tied with Jimmy Carter
So, my trusty calculator says that with the ties for first, second and third and because there have only been 44 presidents including the present one, Obama and Jimmy come in dead last.

Could you post the source for that list? I'm just interested.

Detroit is the perfect example of unabated liberal policies.

Why had California not being there yet?

Because there was some Capitalism ideas still honored. That kept California from becoming Detroit. But Liberals seeing the results of Capitalism and wrongly believing them to be the result of Liberalism had continue unabated implementing them in California to the tune of 225 thousand people leaving California every year!

225,000 every year!

History 101: Democrats were ALWAYS the racist ones!

Democrats created the KKK. Democrats evade taxes. Democrats rounds up illegals. Democrats expose themselves on the internet. Democrats harass interns. Democrats sell cocaine to gays in Chicago streets. Democrats pay hookers with tax payers money. Etc.

But the most obvious one:

Democrats legalized abortion to kill black kids. And they even admitted it in front of the supreme court!

G.W. Bush & Nixon both created economical messes that had a lasting affect on the US Economy which is why I cant blame Carter for Nixons failed economical policies even Herb Stein who was a member of the Council of Economic Advisors at time under Nixon admitted and made it clear that Nixon and the Others, including himself in the Nixon Adminstration didnt really have a clue as to what they were doing with economical policy and when Nixon took the US off the Gold Standard with nothing to back the US dollars it shook the markets.

Correction:

They, lacking any internal conviction of charity, use an external agent, the government, as an artificial machine-like entity, to implement artificial actions of love. That is why they "pretend" to care about nature, the body, children, women, minority, etc. Theirs is a reaction to an internal emptiness they know, but they need to fill even if in an artificial manner.
