Oh, the columns look wierd because I started going to the mobile site on my pc instead of the full site. It loads faster and does not have all the ads. So the links I posted were for the mobile site. You can still go to the full site and see all the same posts.

The thought has crossed my mind to try to set her up with someone.

Hmmmmm...

A Roman Catholic hospital in Colorado is arguing in a malpractice suit that fetuses aren't people.

News Item: "The Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project will hold a protest outside the...."
For those who doubt there is any subject imaginable for which an organization does not exist.

News Headline: "Armed man's capitol intrusion unnerves Idaho lawmakers."
News Headline: "For sixth time in a week, man shot at a gun show."
OK. We've been trying it the National Rifle Association's way.
How long would it take to manufacture 315 million assault rifles?
Then we can all just have it out.

A 93-year-old man in Kansas City, Mo., said he killed his wife of 70 years because he "couldn't take it anymore."

I guarantee that the vast majority of the people offended are not even Taco Bell customers. So basically, they’ve pulled a funny ad, that speaks to their core customer base, because people who contribute nothing to their bottom line got their feelings hurt.

It is a known fact that child molesters put themselves in positions that surround them with children.

I don't think allowing gay scout leaders is a good idea. Should we put our children at risk for the sake of "progress?"

I commend the boy scouts for changing, but I think that author is an obnoxious as$. He isn't a student of history that is for sure. Racism was also a problem up north, perhaps not as ingrained, but it was present as well.

Also, who is he to decide who isn't and is an American. Dumb f' will say these people aren't Americans, but his bleeding heart is probably loving the fact that they are talking about granting Amnesty to 12-20 million illegal foreign nations, who will then receive obamacare, food stamps, section 8 housing, earned income tax credits. He'll call that being an American. I call that treasonous.

I feel the big problem is that some people believe child molesters are gay. Child molesters are pedophiles and they are gay, straight and bi.

You really should know that by now.

The vast majority of male child molesters identify as straight. They often are married and have children of their own.

As a mostly vegetarian who's had taco bell maybe 2-3 times in 20 years, anyone who would be offended by that ad needs to be bitchsmacked.

Interesting story about the catholic church/hospital and the fetuses. THe mom came into the ER throwing up and had a heart attack before they could even get her into a room. She died, then the babies inside her died. Husband sued. It's now been seven years.

I need to read more because I can't determine whether I side with the hospital (as in, they aren't guilty of malpractice) or with the dad.

But too many parents sue for wrongful death of their children out of grief, rather than just accepting that sometimes, horrible things happen and that's just life.
