<quoted text>Read up, Gramps. If I had anything to do with your asinine posts being deleted, I would happily post my success. I have no power, don't know any Topix Mods, and maybe you really need to look at your own stupidity for what is happening. You will probably learn to change locations, like your little Topix troll...R1...straight shooter....Blonde Douche..Big Kotex. But then again, you probably have more of a life than that idiot loser. Now, am I amused at your stupid situation? Very!! But I find it sad that a day that should be honoring your service to our country, has been wasted with your obsession on a messaging board, that should have nothing to do with any aspect of your life. I do hope you find a place in the world that completes you. As of now, this place just makes you a delusional ass! But then again, maybe that gives you attention. You succeeded! Congrats!
I am not responsible for R1 you paranoid idiot. Who is he, the boogeyman? Get a grip.

I have no control or alliances to the poster you obsess over. You chose to pick a battle. You have aligned yourself with idiot from the Cafe, and there are those of us that find your constant blathering annoying. I find you more intelligent than the Topix troll, but you chose to be an insufferable POS. The Gay forums entertain you, and seems to be your constant source of interaction with people. Enjoy.

Deal with me honestly is all I ask. You are more a troll than I. Don't be a little sneak cheering on Jizzy's bad behavior just because you can't deal with me intellectually or honestly

My brother got an instant lobotomy in Vietnam in 1968. He lives at the VA hospital. They let me spring him occasionally and I of course did so today and took him to dinner with other veterans. He doesn't talk but he understands kindness and I lavish it on him. What a difference from you dishonest sneaky lying jackasses. I need a shower after reading your posts. Get your boy Jizzy in check.
I promote true marriage equality and joke around, you and Jizzy are trolls.
I believe not one word you post. Your stories grow as your loneliness festers. Oh, and your brother....think of him when you laugh and poke fun of a former poster , "Golem". I will never forgive or let that idiocy go. Now go drink yourself appreciated.

You have never debated that topic, thats the problem. You just post crap and hope it sticks to the wall.
Butt salve?

What a crock of sh!t! First you whine I talk about marriage equality for poly all the time then you whine I never talk about marriage equality! You're insane. Get a grip.

You delete my posts that intellectually challenge your arguments. That's not fair.

Sure, you don't like me. But I have the same right as you and Jizzy to be here.

I have never poked fun at Golem who is a fictional person who didn't really die anyway dippy. I have never been mean. You are though. Sneaky too.

Maybe Blankie can create the "polygamy flag" and head the first polygamous parade? it would give him something else to do, rather than keep getting his nonsense deleted.
http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/26/living/relation...

(CNN)-- Revelers in the rainbow-washed crowd smiled and cheered this month as the little blond girl in the parade float pageant-waved to the B-52's "Love Shack."
Next to the float, the girl's father, Billy Holder, handed out fliers to the Atlanta Pride Parade crowd. His wife, Melissa, carried a banner along with Jeremy Mullins, the couple's partner.
"Polyamory: Having simultaneous close emotional relationships with two or more other individuals," read their purple-lettered banner, embellished with an infinity heart.
The "awws" and waves from the crowd gave way to some puzzled looks and snickers.
"What's poly?" a woman asked, looking toward a handwritten sign on the float that read "Atlanta Poly Paradise."
"Multiple partners?" the man next to her guessed.
Sort of. As the concept of open relationships rises in pop culture and political debates, some polyamorous families like the Holders and Mullins see an opportunity to go public and fight stereotypes that polyamory is just swinging, cheating or kinky sex.
It's not just a fling or a phase for them. It's an identity. They want to show that polyamory can be a viable alternative to monogamy, even for middle-class, suburban families with children, jobs and house notes.
"We're not trying to say that monogamy is bad," said Billy Holder, a 36-year-old carpenter who works at a university in Atlanta. "We're trying to promote the fact that everyone has a right to develop a relationship structure that works for them."

Jeremy Mullins passes out fliers at the 2012 Atlanta Pride Parade.
For the Holder-Mullins triad, polyamory is three adults living in the same home about 20 miles south of Atlanta. They share bills, housework and childcare for their 9-year-old daughter. They work at the same place, sharing carpooling duties so someone can see their daughter off to school each day.
Surrounded at the parade by drag queens from El Gato Negro nightclub, singers from a gospel choir and supporters of the Libertarian Party of Georgia, Billy Holder didn't stand out in his jeans, T-shirt and wide-brimmed, sun-shielding hat. That's sort of the point, he said: to demonstrate that polyamorists, or polys, are just like anybody else.
But, he's quick to add, "It takes a lot of work and it's not for everybody."
It's a common refrain from long-practicing polys. Jealousy among partners is one thing, but they also face or fear disapproval from neighbors, relatives and coworkers. The Holders and Mullins dealt with rejection from parents and one of Melissa Holder's sons when they revealed their relationship. They've also been the subject of a child welfare probe that ended in no charges being laid.
"We've been through it all," said 35-year-old Jeremy Mullins, a computer programmer.

That's why they're coming out, he said -- to change the status quo. And yet, their willingness to speak with CNN over the past 18 months came with conditions, such as the request to not name their employers.
Marching in the parade for the fourth year is just one way they're trying to promote public acceptance of polyamory. Someday, they want to challenge laws that criminalize adultery and cohabitation, Mullins said.
"We want to promote the idea that any relationship is valid as long as it is a choice made by consenting adults," he said. "In this regard, and as in most things, promoting public acceptance is the first step."
It's an uphill battle. Many traditional marriage counselors and relationship therapists discourage non-monogamy,

Good luck and be prepared to be bashed. And censored.

Marriage. There is no one right way.

Polygamy deserves the same respect as SSM and OSM.
