Of course I meant no, you didn't hurt my feelings. But it's interesting that you think it's demeaning being a bottom. Tell us about it! Someone's gotta do it. If there were no bottoms there would be no tops, Cupcake!

Who's the gay basher, Cupcake? Shame on you!

What a jerk.

I guess this means you have no evidence of my alleged gay bashing eh, Cupcake? Why do you lie? It's not nice to falsely accuse people. It's stupid.
Why do you even assume I'm not gay?
What a dope!
Awfully whiny aren't you?

My hope for humanity is that you are completely asexual sweetie. That way it really doesn't matter if you put theory into practice.

Since the other two replies were pretty much the same spittle, I've decided that you're done for now.

TTFN, cupcake.

And there in lies the issue with our two party system.
The politicians have convinced the people that one party is for them and one is against- insert which ever party you like into either side, it doesn't matter.
The fact is, the DNC and the GOP both get what they like in back room deals, then they play off each other in the public eye acting as if they care about this that and the other. Think WWE- it's all staged, and it all results in us getting screwed.
Look at the debates, how many people where on the ticket in November- 4 or 5? Yet we only got the hear from TWO!! Why?!?! Because the public has been convinced that only 1 of 2 parties could possibly garner the votes to make a real run at it. To ensure that remains so, the two parties and the media do everything in their power to silence the opposition.
There isn't a dimes worth of difference between the two parties. They both spend like drunken sailors, they just argue about which bar to drink at. Neither is interested in taking their hands off your wallet. Neither really cares about gay rights one way or another, the DNC will toss out a bone in the form of lip service once in a while- take the ending of DADT for instance, sure they can join, but they can't get benefits.. Same thing goes for the GOP, they say they are for Business, but it was Obama and the DNC that gave out the free money??
The funny thing is, people usually argue over whether this is a Conservative (GOP) or Liberal (DNC) country, when the reality is, if it was truly explained to people on a very basic level we would find that a VAST majority of the country is Libertarian.
Ya know what I find funny about your post? It got three spams, three peanuts, and three dim bulbs. All for being a fairly accurate description of what is wrong with our political machine. Go figure.

I've been away for several days, you guys have sure left a trail of posts. Anything new, or just the same old same old?

I drove through middle and east TN to see family. I learned something on the way back. Somewhere along the way, visible on the east bound side of I-40 some schmuck loser paid good hard earned money to put up a huge sign:

"Obama or America - you can't have both"

In 4+ years we'll still be here, just as we were after 8 years of W.

I was also amused to see a big "Jesus Saves" sign chucked up on the wall of a gun shop, right beside a big image of a semi auto weapon. Turn the other cheek and open fire, eh? Before anyone says a thing, I don't care what kind of gun you own, just use your brain while handling it.

Could there be another melt down in the works for two and a half men?

Time for ROSE to make another attack on a character of this series?

Nineteen-year-old Angus T. Jones, who plays Jake, says in a videotaped testimonial for the "religious group Forerunner Chronicles."

That he doesn't want to be on it, and that he considers the risque CBS sitcom to be "filthy.

"Only people who have sexual insecurities or irrational beliefs find homosexuality objectionable."
You made that up. It doesn't count.
Didn't make it up. Determined it through observation.
R Hudson wrote:
"And gay people don't like advances from members of the opposite sex. So what?"
Well, then, don't. As my statement was being used to illustrate non-acceptance of gays, it is irrelevant.
Well, stupid, does a gay person not liking advances from a member of the opposite sex illustrate non-acceptance of straights?
R Hudson wrote:
"Such as? Shooting people in the back for striking? The government telling us which sex acts we can engage in with fellow consenting adults?"
We are talking about legislated morality, not dealing with strikers.
The Founding Fathers intended "that there be no slavery, that Natives not be used for target practice, that women could vote..."
Really? Why couldn't women vote until 1920?
R Hudson wrote:
Which is why they framed in Amendments to allow for those things. They made no mention of allowing poofs to marry.
"Why do you lie and claim to be Wiccan?"
Why do you persist in this ? Really, you are an amusing little pinhead, aren't you ? Zippy the Chongo.
Because you go against the primary teaching of Wicca. If someone claiming to be a Christian kept on saying Jesus was nobody special, I wouldn't believe they were Christian.

The horrifying ordeal endured by the African American family in Yorba Linda, California that was forced to move to safety because of the abuse heaped on them by unknown assilants brought back painful memories.

Curently there is a SkinHead style person living in Glendora, California on Swain, who has a issue with minorities, he Glendora Police Department has been made aware of this person for a few years now and sill they let his lose to cause racists havoic in the neighborhood too.

ooks like it's time for the F.B.I. to step in and take control of this racist stuff, since the local PD's can't get their signals straight.

It's a Federal Crime.

When the U.S. Supreme Court convenes behind closed doors November 30, 2012 Friday, the justices will weigh whether to jump headlong into the historic same-sex marriage debate or splash the legal waters around a bit longer.

So, what is your rational argument? And something as ugly as you are shouldn't be calling anybody "it".
