What a dopey fantasy. Go finish grammar school then maybe we'll talk as it is now I can barely understand your writing.
The bottom line is you mocked victims of terror just because the act was embarrassing to your great Obama and I called you on it.
I have equal sympathy for those killed on any other presidents watch. Of course you don't believe me because you completely know my views now, right? Wrong.
still nothing new on the policy front huh??

peace.

My gosh!!! Four blondes in a row!
Please explain the specific similarity between denying blacks the right to serve and my reasoning for not mixing orientation attraction in a military setting.
So far, all you did was a partial quote with an ad homoan attack. I'll be real interested to see my hallucinations and non-rationality exposed Marsha.
You, just like the racists way back in history, are making cause and effect claims that have no rational basis. This is just the sort of steaming pile of BS that seems to occur with an alarming degree of frequency from the dogma kennel. Blacks will revolt if we let them in the military. The society will be turned on its head if we give women the vote. Blacks will be raping your white daughters if we recognize them as human beings. Gays will be converting your sons if we allow them out of the closet. That is the similarity. Why I need to point that out for you defies all logic.

Living paranoid? Why not just roll yourself up in bubble wrap & pull a blanket over your head? Tinfoil hats for everyone! You might not think 9/11 wuz an inside job. You may not be of the mind that Obama, the Muslim terrust, ain't no US citizen. But you're suckin' on the same teats.

Take all your bullshit rants which reek of insecurity to a political forum please. The thread deals with gay marriage or are you as stupid to ask for the biggest T-bone they had for an upcoming barbeque at a vegan grocery store as well?
you can just say you disagree?? and add something interesting..

but im gonna pull the 1st on ya!! because it is so close to election time as well..

but by all means carry on....

how does this election(in your humble opinion) effect the march towards parity for the LGBT community, in regards to civil rights??

in my opinion?? electing romney would be a step BACK for the gay community.

i think I have alot of agreement on that WITHIN the lgbt community.

thannx

From my sympathy for victims of terror, you think you know everything about me. You're stupid.
Ya know, the doctors made a mistake. They should have discarded you and kept the placenta instead. Your mother and all of us would be better off today if they had.

In my opinion, there is no need for separate berthing just because someone is Gay or Lesbian......that would be the same thing as when we separated troops based solely on skin color.
Gay men and straight men should be grown-up enough to handle the situation, besides.....it's not like Gay men are attracted or will hit on straight men and if straight men think they will, well, they shouldn't flatter themselves!!!
It would not be the same thing as separating based on skin color- not even close. I am so sick of that nonsense! It would be exactly the same thing as segregation based on sex.

And as far as your nonsense about growing up, I guess the same should be said if we decided to place males and females together, huh?

You are out of touch with reality, you are so blinded by your "cause" you can't even apply critical thinking.

its ok mike, ive run into people who are scared to debate, from the right...
it is actually quite common...
everyone knows that liberals win all arguements on merit....
but the philosophy of self interest is still appealing to those children of a lesser brain.
have you ever noticed that all our college proffesors are mostly left Or center left.
BTW: I dont think you can post anything I wrote that would prove I mocked anyone but you.
I appreciate that you are spreading sympathy about the event.
but I doubt your sincerity since we are 4 weeks from the presidential election??
and all I have do is turn of faux news??.....to hear a parrot of what you and riccaro keep repeating...
bengazi is just one little hot spot.....
you guys keep ignoring the rest of them??
it is like romney/ryan and all of you(on the right) think that just harping on one incident of violence is going to bring down Obama on foriegn policy....
how many terrorists has Romney killed lately??
dont ignore the other places ive mentioned, for your own sake, try defining MITT a little on these issues....
what I said is true, people are interested in ROmney now, and they want to hear what he has to offer in replacement of Obama's policies on the middle east. that is all, no biggy!
Because I called you on your mockery of terror victims means I'll be voting for Romney and that I am a "right winger"?

I have no interest in defining "MITT". I won't be voting for him.
But don't let that spoil your stupid mistaken assumptions about me. You know best!

What a dope, you assume you know all about me from my one sentence objecting to your trivializing of terror.

wow you finally hit the nail on the head!!
since we havnt heard of any instances of problems from gay soldiers bunking with straight soldiers??
you can pretty much chalk it up to a "nontroversy"....(li ke the nyc mosque)...
if I had a dollar for every thing that rightwing thought was gonna end up being a huge issue(but wasnt) id be ready to retire.
You really need to learn some grammar.

But anyway- you completely avoided critical thinking. Like I said, is it a non-issue because there is no issue, or is it a non-issue because homosexuals have implemented their own DADT policy?

Or is it something a bit more sinister and the issues simply haven't been made public in a vain attempt to prevent it from becoming an issue?

And BTW, this isn't a "right wing" vs "left wing" issue, life is far more complicated than that, thought the politicians in Washington and the media like to keep it dumb down that way for simple minded people such as yourself.

Yup, here come the ad hominen.

So far you've called me a "chimp" and suggested I should have been killed at birth. Nice. Proves nothing of course except that you lost.

AK, NorCal Native sums up my feelings quite nicely, but if I may elaborate.
The comparison to skin color is valid as there was a time when whites didn't want to serve along side blacks and this was SOP. It wasn't rational (sadly it is a feeling that persists in some/many individuals). Likewise there are those in the military that don't want to serve with homosexuals. These feelings are based upon irrational thoughts. One of the yammering idiots in here brings up rape. I can just see that one in an open barrack. I wouldn't think that the percentages would change in the service as compared to the general population. That means, depending upon what you believe, 2 to 10% of the military is gay. This ought to be a fairly constant rate all the way down to a single barrack. Soooo, 2% are going to launch an assault on 98% in an open barrack. I seriously have my doubts about any sort of assault going in that direction. OTOH, it isn't unreasonable to think that a gay man might get the shxt beat out of him under those same numbers.
All that said, it is a hurdle that needs jumping. Eventually we'll get there, but it'll probably involve a few bloody noses.
I simply don't agree with the comparison of homosexuals to blacks.

Part of the reason why DADT was repealed was due to a survey conducted in the military where it was found that a vast majority didn't give a damn about it.

While simply banning or segregating based on sexual orientation does walk a fine line, I do not find it irrational for a heterosexual or homosexuals to be uncomfortable with being housed together anymore than I find it irrational for that same feeling to be present among men and woman under the same conditions.

This issue is far more complex than simply screaming "bigot" or "homophobe."

Take note of the poster's locations. They're different. It is a common tactic for spackers to use someone's name to post insults and/or self deprecating comments. Mildly annoying and mildly amusing at the same time. I have been a popular target from time to time.

Yup it was. If you're going to resort to ad hominen, at least make them funny. But of course using ad hominen is stupid in itself, it means you have nothing left.

You assume someone is a woman based upon a name that they adopt for a topix forum? Some folks actually put a little thought into their handles when they choose them. I'm surprised you haven't got a grasp of the guy's forum name as of yet. I'll give you a hint. Google is your friend and the search terms you want are Ayn Rand and Paul Ryan. The irony in Ryan's affections for Rand's philosophy is hilarious. He's had a turn of thought recently. I suppose it took him a while to get a grasp of Rand's religious belief.
So, instead of using your noggin in order to figure out why he'd use the name he chose you made an assumption. That's dumb.
So assuming someone with a girl's name is a girl is dumb, but assuming you know everything about a person's political views based on just their sympathy for terror victims is not dumb. Priceless!
