This is why you weirdos are coming out the woodworks with all the nonsense you spew day in, day out! Reality finally set in, the prehistoric ideology of America is coming to an end. Sorry guns won't save you, neither will centuries old lies. Not even resurrecting Lincoln, Jefferson, & Washington will stop the forward momentum & steady progress of this country. Barack Obama is no more than a symbol of that progress & those in total opposition of his presidency are whispers in the dark. You ignore them long enough & they go away quietly! I must applaud all who voted against the status quo in this past election. White folks who voted opposite their parents & grand parents still stuck in their ways. That took some courage & faith! We're living the dreams of 2 of our forefathers. Men you can call forefathers with pride & dignity JFK & MLK! We can no longer look to the past for answers of the future that's the old way of thinking! Regardless of the things I post in response here on topix, I wish we who identify ourselves as Americans can find common ground & pull ourselves together to better our nation for the better of our future. This ain't no black history speech at all, this is from my heart to yours. I pray it hits the spot!
better keep praying brother.

Frankly, it's ruined already. There are so few pristine, unpeopled retreats left as to be immaterial at this point, so just fuck it. Since you seem to be blind to what you've done I suggest we all just carry on until the inbred stoopidity which you represent finally topples into the sea or kneels down in solemn prayer (fear) as the meteor strikes.

Have to have SOME compassion when dealing with some of this stuff--people can be so flocked up, and when they impose they're flocked upedness onto others..therein starts the "pattern" of flocked up.
Huh, sounds like some words eligible for noteable mention in flacks book of flocked up world:-)


I agree. There has been a pattern of flocked upedness on this thread and the patterns have had an effect in its exposure. The only thing is why you included your last statement "... words eligible for noteable mention in flacks book of flocked up world". Don't misunderstand it could have been any poster I'm only pointing out your hypocrisy. Thought you liked flack. Seeing as you were defending him against others attacking him at one time. Why the snarky insult toward flack now?
Unless I misunderstood your comment.
You do have a strange way of posting.
Perhaps if you lose that speech impediment.

Course you also said you usually lean left.
And that show of pretense, remember when you stood up for lily when new yawk dragged her over hot coals? hahaha.
Yeah that got you a whole lotta love from lily who clearly despises you while it got no play from new yawk. Big fail for you, phat cwayon. lol
There's something shady about you.
You're somebody's sock, no doubt, KINtucky or is it Jamestown, NY.
Sure you want to play this game.

And pubescently petty. And then you pay to play.

I'll take phat cwayons for a thousand Alex and wager it all.

On the same day Portman's change of heart made national headlines, the right wing blog "Government Is Not God" warned the politician that homosexuality "may eventually kill his son from AIDS, other sexually transmitted diseases, or oral cancer."

"Homosexual sex is ultimately just as destructive as cocaine use," the post continued. "Would Portman suddenly call for the legalization of cocaine if his son had announced that he was a cocaine addict? Would that be “loving” and “compassionate”?"

In a statement posted on the Family Research Council (FRC) website, FRC president Tony Perkins wrote that Will's choices, and the choices of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in general "are both harmful to them and society as a whole."

Meanwhile, Bryan Fischer, the controversial mouthpiece of the anti-gay American Family Association, compared being gay to being a bank robber, adding "prayers for the senator, his wife, his son and their entire family are called for at this time."

<quoted text>Nah, the dog walker is pretty much a no brainer__it was the 5 chefs on AF 1 that caught my attention.
Many years ago I met a black guy who had worked in the White House kitchen as a meat man during the Ike and JFK era, he had photo's of himself with the muckity mucks and also of himself at his work station. Well, it wasn't only his, there were a half dozen others in that space__it takes a team to throw down 120 perfectly broiled steaks at the same time. Beyond that there were salad girls, sous chefs, fetchers-grabbers and a whole messa servers, dishwashers etc.
That's a big azz kitchen pal.
Oh__and it hits me that the AF 1 food folks would be Air Force personnel.
Unreal, I suppose they'd love for the Presidents daughters to walk around the streets of DC with the dog. These people are so stupid.

You do love to generalize do you not? How many young men play high school football? A few million? They are all cocky and feel above the rules? All coaches cover up coaches misconduct?
The area I live in 50 mile radius has probably 50 plus high schools have football teams. Several thousand young men participating. Guess what? I can not remember a single case where one of the players was accused of rape or of a single coach who tried to cover it up.
Do high school football players commit rape? Yes. Do high school drop outs commit rape? Yes. Folks of all ilks commit rapes.
The two young men in question got off lightly, their punishment should have been much harsher.
Peace
Aside from your ridiculous post, I agree that they got off lightly; in Florida, the prosecutors want to direct file many juveniles as adults and put them into adult jails and prisons, which I do not agree with.
I hope for everyone involved that these boys learned a lesson that day and let it be a learning experience for all teenagers.
Girls as well as boys.

About as much as you are with a Republican House than can stop most of the moron in the White House's loony plans trying to eliminate a prosperous future for our kids. Any other questions, lowlife?
Yes when are they going to vote out the TEA Party Congress and get some good Democrats in there so President Obama can get some things accomplished during his second term? 2014 elections will devastate the Republicans you imbicile.

"Rape" is forcible sexual intercourse.
The rest of the actions now classified as "rape" are forms of sexual assault.
"Date rape" is the worst, a he-said, she-said dispute that is very difficult to resolve.
Every incident has at least two perspectives.
I agree with this with the exception of the first sentence. In this case, the perpetrators recorded and broadcasted their own crime.

Good evening topix friends and fans alike!! I'm quite tired right now as I've been here all day judging your posts and talking for hours back and forth with myself and all my sockpuppets!!!!!! To say it was exhausting would be an understatement! I was in a quite the frenzy with the judgit competition today so please, take over judging the posts without me while I grab a bite to eat. Don't worry, I will most assuredly be back shortly!!
After I get a clean pair of depends (industrial strength) on(these are pretty shot), eat (mostly cheese), take my med's and have a quick chat with my psychoanalyst I will be ready to roar back to life judging your posts!!!
