you speak about 'shutting' something, yet fail to point out what that something is.
seems counter-intuitive, as well as counter-productive.
intelligence can't work without focus or aim.
You're the king of rambling nonsense and you wish to lecture others on focus and aim?

<quoted text>so, when are you going to start working on that focus or aim?
i don't know what 'that' you are speaking of.
i also don't know if 'what' is literal or missing math characters.
i don't know if you are talking about focus & aim of my own, or comprised of the diversity stemming from nothing & complete lack of information to embody a statement other than response & reaction to repeated petty hate crimes observed here on the forum.

simply because i want something or am with a goal in sight, that doesn't mean the other half of the equation supports.
it also doesn't mean i've got peers to support my goals.

simply because the industry or hobby exists, it does not imply said industry or hobby is maintained with intellectual hobbyists or management with solutions and|or key insight to help others progress as well as succeed.

somewhat like the housing industry,
simply because you need a place to live doesn't necessitate affordability.
i see a lot of houses (condos apartments too) with a monthly rent larger than what most people bring home in a month.

it appears to me like greed has the overwhelming fame to insight all three aspects of money, power, and fame.

what less than a paragraph response is considered a lecture by anyone other than the lazy?

what fears me most is the fact of intellectual greed trying to obtain something.
my view, my consciousness, my outlook, as well as my character as a whole is mine .. what or how do you think you will embody such things while fighting, whining, protesting?

AMEN!!!

I am a senior citizen having worked with "Gays", and became VERY close friends with a number of them, and THEY too deserve "Rights". They ARE NOT! a threat to others. "This GOD" created sexual orientation is present in animals also. If you think not, PLEASE Really educate yourself and leave religion out of it!!! No one on this forum has the right to "Judge". Remember "JUDGE NOT! LEST YE BE JUDGED"

Join the blacks, they blame other people for their dissatisfaction in life as well. "Everyone just wants things to be fair." Well, reality check, life isn't fair. Also, think about it like this. How will civilization continue to exist with there becoming more and more gays? Last time I checked, a dude can't get another dude pregnant. Don't gay people, men in particular, have a drastically increased risk of aids? Yes they do. Isn't that expensive to treat? Yes it is. Don't most people with aids not have health care? Well, yes. Who pays for their treatments then? The taxpayer. Oh, well its seems to me the american taxpayer should be up in arms because in a round about way, this will only cost them more. It's also un-natural for a child to be reared by gay's. That is already putting them behind the 8 ball to start their life. Kids are cruel, so why would you want to subject a kid to anymore cruelty? The list goes on and on as to why this is a bad idea. Just my opinion.

anybody with some history as to how many problems started that at first seemed harmless?

otherwise I could use the 'playing with fire in dry grass' example.. but in the end, dry grass always has a rim that brings the blaze to an end, therefore not the best example.

anyways..
ya'll are talking about marriage again and again.
the topic is civil union, and even I am guilty of that one.
but at least I expressed on topic.
I come back here to see if anybody else is furthering the conversation, not to be 'had' by being labeled as 'so' to sad.

It's about time. Half who preach against gays have gay sex secretly and don't get tested. Be happy some want a real relationship. Quit taking gay folks' tax money if you don't like them. They say it takes at least three people to support a family now tax-wise. If it weren't for gays, many of you couldn't keep cranking out kids and living as well as you do, politicians stealing aside. You couldn't do it on your own. Couldn't...
No one has said anything about not liking them, it is just wrong and unnatural. Life was never intended to be this way....

So Ron why don't you tell us how life was intended to be? Maybe we are suppose to be stuck in a loveless marriage with a bully we can't stand? Would we all be better people if we pretended to be happy in a loveless heterosexual relationship or would we be hypocrites who hurt innocent people? Please enlighten us O' holy one? I will never forget a heterosexual relationship were the jack axx stomped my heart into a million pieces to build his own pathetic ego! I am cool though, what didn't kill me made me stronger.

I have never been with someone I can't stand. However I have heard many men complain about their wives and girlfriends as if they can not stand the women. All the complaining just goes to prove that all heterosexual relationships and unions are not perfect. Yet, heterosexuals are the first to bash someone who has the guts to stand up for what they actually want. People should take care of their own problems before they go bashing other people for their choices.

I am not being rude. I am just wondering what would motivate you to come into this topic if you aren't a supporter of gay rights? Did someone, maybe a girl or a lady leave you for a same sex relationship. Can't you just live and let live?

Because I am stating that it is wrong. You made some comment about a fat lady leaving me or something to that effect. That is being rude. If you must know I've been with the same woman for 25yrs.

what is seen here is a person expressing their desire to learn in the wrong way.
begging with retort is more than a taunt, it is assault & oppression as well as negligence of the speaker.

simply because you create a cavity does not imply somebody will come along and fill it full of health.
it is even worse when the person creating the cavity isn't managing said cavity.
yet even worse is a person managing their cavity, only to lose their grip with a large pile of work needing to be organized, or at the least fulfilled.
creating a cavity in the first place isn't necessarily obnoxious, because it is a preposterous defense tactic .. however, being stuck in a casted mold after creating such a cavity because there isn't anything to move forward with certainly doesn't help .. but it isn't impossible & it isn't irrational .. it simply shows a lack of sanity & sensibility of the people around you whom you looked out to for the next forward step that was missing.

but don't forget, everything has an opposite.
where there are cavities, the opposite would be a bubble of gay.. the real gay, where it is the emotional numb that has nothing at all to do with physical sex.

people shove those bubbles in people's faces as if flame retardant.. and people also stand by other people with their cavity hoping their body will express itself.

either one is typically the problem where a source created something, and instead of being able to organize the problem and find fulfillment moving forward .. the lack of forward caused a stall, and the stall creates a situation where the person has nothing else better to do other than think about the source repeatedly.
since it was organized (or even if it wasn't) the sanity & sensibility kicks in and says time is up because too much time & energy focusing on one thing is quite opposite to the belief of life giving many things to offer.

the real work is getting to know if the organizational effort was completed, or if it was left behind by a lazy person.. because the thought of life & the belief of all life has to give is kinda like the excitement of running fresh into a carnival at the beginning of the day without any idea what you are going to ride first because your open-mindedness simply doesn't care to make a decision.
it has nothing to do with how fast or how long the thoughts were pondered, because some people can do it in less than 60 seconds .. sometimes those same people need 60 months.

some people tend to cavities because they know they can sit down to a conversation that will surf the waters until the source is found, to help the person once again view the problem .. but the truth is, that person might not be there for you to use as forward progress because maybe you two are total strangers without the time or reason to continue speaking.
that is when people get to the source of the problem and really come to a list of available options.
they might help you organize some more from the period of the source upwards to whenever you quit communicating.
or
maybe they look to the future of the present and give some advice or insight to the economy.

that is what they call food for thought, it is what fills hobbies to exist in the first place.

people won't be your friend if you've got nothing to give.
and even if you do, those people might not be true friends as leeches do exist.

there's room to say 'value your time'
