Lol.....I didn't mean USA is one family,
I meant my kids and relatives...
Missed the point here...
You would have done well to think of Americans as one big family. You gave shown the EXACT mentality that is desired by the powers-that-be.. You don't embrace the idea that we Americans ARE a family, albeit a divided one.

I got some news for you, hon.. When you call me a homophobe, you ARE being the baiter. I respect your right to have any opinion you wish. Pity that you fail to see your own actions for what they are... In your self-righteous cloak, you fail to see that you are attempting to silence others who disagree with you. Baiters do this.

If, Cali, you actually understood more, you'd realize that your name calling IS the offering of the bait. Capisce? Chongo is an expert at this... Totally ignores reality and just calls names.

Here, Cali, is an example of the subtler form of baiting...

"So you like to say. Most likely, you're just fishing for more attention. Could be you're just gay, and trying very hard to create a back-story (pun intended) that explains away your attraction to men and overall sexual confusion. I mean, really, no sane straight guy spends as much time demanding attention from gay people he doesn't know, and thinking about sex acts they claim to hate."

This post attempts to place anyone who voices an opinion (that differs from the posters) into the class of the insane. Not very sophisticated, but there it is. We must be insane to argue against it, right? We can't have any real reason to object to it, right? We're not allowed to have a difference of opinion, without there being something wrong with US, forget the fact that SSM isn't supposed to be a valid option. It's a road to extinction. Nature does not reward homosexual couplings with offspring. You need the government to get that payoff. Neatly forgotten, in the flurry of baiting....

The super wealthy and their Republican puppets are dismantling our lifestyles, our country, and our very existence. Yet there’s no revolution, and only an occasional demonstration here and there.

What other society ever caved in so easily? How incredibly stupid is the population of America? We’re being raped, pillaged and plundered every day. But rather than fighting back, we sit around watching “reality” TV shows, or baseball games, or old movies, and do everything possible to ignore our impending servitude and eventual doom.

Our labor is no longer needed. It can be performed almost anyplace else in the world. Our spending is no longer needed. The Robber Barons can gather their loot in Euros, Yens, Pesos, or just plain old gold. Our only remaining use is to sit still and keep quiet while the vultures take what little we have left.

Any questions?

The Western world (in which I live) got lazy, and starving people worked to pull themselves towards prosperity, be it India, China, Africa or Southeast Asia. Americans got immensely fat, dumb and happy. Mr. and Mrs. America were going to football practice with the kiddies a few nights a week and concentrating on music, and art lessons, because they're fun, unlike academic homework. Meanwhile, the kids weren't getting a good grounding in reading, science and math; and no, it wasn't an education funding issue - American schools get more $$$ now they they ever have before. Workers got comfortably used to yearly raises without merit. People like Big D and Bruno. The things we count as "productivity" in this country, like shuffling paper and filling out Excel spreadsheets and creating endless powerpoint charts really aren't productive. When it comes to manufacturing, parents pushed the kids into careers like business, hospitality, paralegal studies, and theater. There were fewer and fewer college level engineers being turned out, and high school students without the practical skills to go into manufacturing. But thank God we had more ambulance chasers to sue everyone, because going into Law was a great career! There were more fast food jobs, and fewer apprenticeship jobs in trades, because everyone thought they deserved a college degree, come hell or high water. Because kids were busy playing with their iPods and Playstations, and getting their yumyums, instead of studying in high school, when they entered the workforce, they were ill prepared, but they continued to demand wages far too high for what they did, which is shuffle paper or serve burgers and fries. Plus, there were 40 year mortgages being pushed with no money down, not like 20 years ago when you were required to put 20% down and have, as one of Obama's sayings "Skin in the game". To demand anyone actually have to put 20% down for home ownership? No, no, too harsh and unfair, and besides, "wages can only go up forever, right?" Mom and Dad were so busy leasing a new car every three years, and hanging a plasma tv on every wall in the new $750,000 house, that they didn't even bother to read the mortgage paperwork at closing. Everyone had to have everything NOW. No reason to work and save for things. "I want them NOW" (or yesterday). And how crazy to actually demand that most people actually pay a little something on their income as a tax! No, we have to have 51% of earners not paying anything and demand "other people pay...but just not me". I said income tax, not FICA. Meanwhile, people on the other side of the world were waking up. They started churning out products in factories, strengthening their currency, sending their kids to western schools for degrees in engineering, manufacturing, IT and physics and SAVING instead of spending every dime they had. And they started to look at America with greed. What did we expect would happen? It's what happens when you get comfortable and have everything. It's what happens when people feel entitled to everything without working for it. No politician is going to save us. They are furiously milking the dying cow. Stop relying on them. It's just the laws of economics and it's now a global economy, like it or not. And subversion at the head of the agenda..

Oh, I got it... This: "How sweet..Love it when Homophobic bigots bond.....So American". We'll start here. An attack that is being labelled as "I don't attack anyone!"? Cute. A lie, but cute. Now, let's add this to the mix: "none of my business, unless they disrespect me, or call me Frankie's puppet!". KiMare and I greeting each other violated this? LOL And, I think a garnish will complete this plate of bullshyte. "I don't know anyone here from a hole in the ground, and that's the way I like it!!", yet you feel free enough to call me a name?

See? There you go again, thinking locally. You're starting to seem rather self-centered to me... I was writing about the family, "America". In fact, "Mr. and Mrs. America" should have pointed that out, to you. Reaching? Hardly.
