No, I meant seeing it more often, not to a greater degree.
I just wanted to know if what I had read was true, that straight males in europe have more physical contact with each other IE holding hands, arm around shoulders etc (all in a chummy, pal kinda way, not PDA).

Because I cant afford to go to europe and find out for myself.
If it is true, then I am curious to understand how it went from being "Normal" to "Abnormal". Like when did being "Gay" go from being happy to being homosexual?

Just part of people watching I guess.

Just asking Wikipedia -- you don't have to go to Europe:

"The term was originally used to refer to feelings of being "carefree", "happy", or "bright and showy". The term's use as a reference to homosexuality may date as early as the late 19th century, but its use gradually increased in the 20th century.[1] In modern English, "gay" has come to be used as an adjective, and as a noun, referring to the people, especially to males, and the practices and cultures associated with homosexuality."

Just another term the gays have hijacked and ruined. Like the term "ph@ gg" or the symbol of rainbows and the equal sign.

I fully expect to receive an incoherent reply back from him on that post that he will end the post that it's all Obama's fault.
Only a liberal would think the Boston Marathon is the most revered sport in the history of the world, and that a liberal city such as Boston is the most revered city on the planet because it has become a liberal paradise like the state of California and the city of Shitcago and the liberal paradise country that is Greece. It's all part of Obama's plan to destroy America one city at a time.

Interesting article in Slate as to why the Russian bomber should be read his Miranda rights sooner rather than later.

Except NO ONE here said the marathon is "The most revered sport" or that "Boston is the most revered city on the planet."

And he's doing a great job. How's those unemployment numbers looking for you? How about the stock market? New business growth? Oh, and now the new tax on internet sales. At least he's fitting the part. Tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend. And the coming Obamacare that will put thousands of small businesses out of business.

From what I read, he was read his rights. The judge read them to him when he was at the hospital and unsealed the charges against him.

Or for you...apparently.

"ONE OF the most ..." is not the same as "THE most..." You see you missed the qualifying words "one" and "of" there. Easy to do. Especially when it's deliberate.

Give it a rest, Dog.

The stock market is at an absolute all time high.
The unemployment numbers have steadily fallen since January 2008.
The tax on internet sales is state, not Federal, sales tax and the current controversy is how the states can collect it.

If he is spending, how do you explain the Sequester? And, given some of teh publicized effect of teh Sequester, perhap the spending is needed to run the country, fly the planes, open the national parks, process the tax returns, etc.

My crystal ball does not permit me to say whether Obamacare will put small businesses out,although on a pure anecdotal basis, I know small business owners who are cutting hours to stay under a threshold.

If you are going to rant ( and knowing you, you will) at least spend some time and find a solid factual base to rant from
You currently have some time on your hands. Do some homework then come back and grouch.

Running out of unemployment benefits does not mean you got a job, it just means that you are now no longer counted as unemployed.

Statistics can put a positive spin on anything.
