All conservatives I know are tolerant of fellow conservatives' personal and private beliefs.
Galt is the only one who broke rank - that I know at least - and became a closet liberal. You should welcome him to your herd of intolerance.
Because, frankly, I don't know him anymore.
Lois I agree, I think Galt has brought in to the Liberal hype ‘Republicans can’t win talking about Social Issues,’ I disagree, so I guess his approach to winning’ let’s not Offend Liberals!!

You were wrong.
These companies are actively advertising to get people to buy individual policies with nothing to do with the exchanges.

You said "Bus" "Abandoned" Afghanistan.

I've been watching your "TV" and haven't seen any advertising.

You also neglect to admit to your socialist Obama con that puts Democrats in bed with the HMO's and greedy insurance by forcing 50 year old women to buy maternity coverage.

You are so full-o-chit, BS'er.

But, hey, on a much happier note, I bought a motorcycle helmet last night when hubby bought his.
He gets his license to drive a motorcycle next week, and we're good to go.
Vroom...vroom...vroom...born to be wild...senior easy rider...that's me...hitting the open road...well, not literally I hope.
I'll have a car for transportation 24/7 for my part-time job and treasure hunting in thrift shops.
Just couldn't be happier....and thought I'd share it.
He's either having a senior moment or a delayed shot at second childhood.

Unless he's been a motorcycle rider for many years, it's really stupid to start riding a motorcycle at advanced age.

You're just looking for trouble, combining old person's reflexes, etc. with riding motorcycles in a world where people have no respect for those on bikes.

Yes, I know it from personal experience, having been in a few altercations on my bike with soccer Mom's in minivans.

Old people should not be on motorcycles unless they started riding as young people.

When you said hubby was just getting his motorcycle license, I thought of road kill.

If I were you, I wouldn't ride on his bike until he has at least a year of experience. Putting your load on the back of the bike is a recipe for disaster.

Then we'll talk about my sheltered life and whether or not conservatives are tolerant of others' personal beliefs.
Because, in large part, that's why you're not a conservative.
Glad to see you and Galt are such good buds now though. He must be thrilled.

He drove motorcycles in his younger days - actually, so did I at one time on occasion.

But he's not as old as me - I robbed the cradle. And I would never attempt to drive it now.

He's taking classes and has to pass an exam - both written and riding - before taking the test at the DMV. It's a law in Florida.

I'm giving him plenty of time to get comfortable on it before hopping on.

Forgot to mention buying a used motorcycle was the cheapest way for us to go for me to have transportation to get to my part-time job. It was out necessity. Daughter has to have the car that's paid for. We gave it to her.

But thanks for your concern. We'll be extra careful as doddering old fools - that you seem to think we are.

Did you read my post to flack - about how cool I look in my helmet and sunglasses? Who knew, right?

Realtime has never liked me for some reason. From the very beginning, and we go way back, he started off being condescending. Might have had something to do with me being a woman who had opinions about politics. Not sure though.

But he used to annoy the fool out of me. He doesn't like me even more now, but I've kinda gotten used to it.

Because I know you grew up on a dairy farm, I now better understand where your bitterness is coming from.

I'd have to do the research but, just from vague memory, I recall the government having put the screws to farmers a while back which forced them to survive any way they could.

Could be wrong. You'd know more about that than me.

But as for the book you suggested, I'd love to learn more about it first. Can you provide a link? Amazon would do.

But enough about me...

MSN - A lack of legal or practical options means the latest political problem engulfing Obama's health care overhaul may not be resolved quickly, cleanly or completely.

Some are saying the cancellations have just begun.

It's going to get pretty depressing in the WH over the upcoming months.

Sorry I missed your post before. It can't be avoided - talking about social issues. The liberals salivate waiting for elections just to put that as their #1 focus because it's all they got.

The trick is for conservatives to take a strong stand using very few words. I've pointed out several times Reagan's response. "I'm for life." Nothing else needs to be said.

How can liberals make an issue out of someone being for life?

But to deny one's convictions to win an election makes a conservative candidate no different than liberals.

It's just how they must go about it. Galt and I actually agreed on that.

Especially when the majority are against abortion and the black community is possibly undergoing changes just because the Democratic Party doesn't represent their beliefs on these same issues.

Sure, your location can't show Waxturd's closet now, can it?? At least you can be smart enough to pick an AZ proxy if you're going to pretend you're in AZ!!

And you're stupid enough to believe that 'hidden' is the same thing as 'invisible'. ROFLMAO

The Waxturd clan is a testamony to the horrors of inbreeding.

Ours is a Yamaha - not sure the exact type.

But it serves a purpose and actually looks great and runs great. The savings on gas is definitely a plus.
