That is why I supported Obama over clinton in 08'
it is pathetic!! every election I voted in from 88' to 04, had either a bush or a clinton on the ticket......
that was another reason why barack edge clinton out, our party didnt want a modern dynasty....like yours had.
lets just say that didnt turn out to well for the republican party!
like where was poppy and dubya come convention time.?
it is a huge advantage that the democrats have now.....
bill clinton.
on Iraq??? it was a needless fabricated war that left 100000 dead.
I dont think al gore would have gone in....
you see where all that patriotic bluster went!!
80% of americans now want afghnaistan to end.
quick mission to kill wanted terrorists..... good!!
long protracted quagmire to get oil feilds???...... bad.
ryan chose war last week.
ill stick with the party and candidate that is willing to negociate.
with regards to war and foriegn policy??
I felt like the adults took back over on 1/20/09.
it used to be republicans would rescue democratic presidents from unwanted wars???
now it appears to be the opposite!!
the republicans started two wars that the democrats are now ending!!
good!!
it is about time!
ps: mabey you can explain further some of romneys positions on afghanistan and IRan......all Ive been hearing about is Libya??
But all you do is blame bush, my point was it wasn't just bush and now look at the position Hillary is in, she is a war monger. Obama's Senate voting record on Iraq is quite similar to that of Hillary Clinton. Both senators waited until May 2007 before they finally voted to cut off funds for the war, on the grounds that the administration had not agreed to a firm timetable for withdrawal. They both voted against a June 2006 amendment proposed by John Kerry (D-Mass.) for the redeployment of U.S. troops. Once the war started Obama voted to cut military.

No one is obligated to explain Romney's positions on a thread about marriage you dopey jackass. And no one cares about your simplistic opinions. There are plenty of threads for that. Or maybe you were laughed out of them?

Learn to spell, learn grammar, punctuation and how to construct a sentence. It won't make your stupid opinions any smarter but at least your posts will be legible and coherent.

Where have I assumed anything about your political orientation or who you support? What is clear is you're not one to think things through. Otherwise you wouldn't make assumptions. The topic, or subtopic as it applied to the dialogue about another persons board name was the origination of the name. You assumed, foolishly, it was because he was a woman. If you just excercised a few brain cells and looked into it you wouldn't have looked so dumb.

Having sympathy for torture victims doesn't impart any knowledge about one's political belief (apart from that of the torturer himself).

Benghazi will never get old to the people who lost loved ones. Their pain will last a very long time. Maybe someday you'll understand that the hard way. Hope not for your sake. But if it happens you'll get angry when someone trivializes it just to get elected won't you?

You're quite funny toots. I was simply trying to show you the light by pointing out what you should have done instead of making an idiotic assumption. I don't speak for anyone but myself.

Why don't you use your favorite insult Winston? Imply that I'm gay. Or are you saving that for last?

Id ask you to elaborate about the situation?? but details arnt your stong point.

They actually do and can behave........and I was HARDLY sanitizing anything......as for your comment about Gays in authority violating their position......that has been happening by males in authority towards women for over 40 years......so, please don't make it sound as one is worse than the other.....both are equally wrong!!!
You have some proof to back up this story that was told, right?
Have you served? or are you just talking BS out of your azz?
Please, tell me you are not really serious. You know the next argument is that heterosexuals might cause pregnancy, right? The only thing 'strictly' is your stupidity!

Next you claim they 'can and DO' behave, but proceed to protest my supposed discrimination about misbehavior by heteros (which I brought up).

You top it off with this logic; if one is wrong, adding another wrong to it, makes it okay.

I bet you are not just a NorCal Native, but a NorCal Blonde Native, right?

In fact it can be argued that the crime wave that everybody expected to hit in the late 80's and early 90's??(my generation) didnt happen because of Row vs wade, proliferation of birth control and thus less unwanted kids.....more intelligent readers can figure it out from their...

the rest of you???

dont really have a chance.

ok.....mabey riccardo, when he is 55 or so.

There is no such thing as gay 'marriage'.
It is a simple denial of reality,
A foolish attempt to impose an imposter relationship on the single and only birthplace of every single other type of relationship.
Attitudes change for right and wrong reasons and there will always be idiots.

by being together I dont think they are "imposing" anything on you.

yes there will always be idiots...
those who cant roll with the changes (because of phony religious values) are the first to come to mind.
and from another lame post of yours??
people in power abusing their power??
ive never heard of that happening before(sarc)
I cant believe a gay guy was the first to abuse his power(sarc)
you sound a little sheltered.
My gosh, what is it with the blondes today???

I've seen gay guys together AND straight guys. So?

Words describe reality. Marriage is the culmination of MILLIONS of years of evolutionary refinement. The reunion of male and female back to the very roots of life; a simple genderless life form.

How stupid does it take to think that redumbant couples who are not only evolutionary dead-ends, but rootless aberrations of the present are not the same???

If you call the tail on a dog a leg, what is it?

Just a heads up blondie, I am a redeemed cynic who remains barbarian. I don't argue faith (by it's very term unprovable) with faithless idiots. I know since you can't argue from logic, you'd like to go back to religion, but sorry, no.

Another heads up (fearing it only means redumbant blondes), I brought up heteros abusing power as a warning that homos are susceptible too.

You sound really stupid.
