You homophobes say "taxpayer" as if gay people don't pay taxes. Gay people are also taxpayers. Speaking of jail house, I'm surprised a song about gay sex was allowed on the radio in the 50's.(Jailhouse Rock)

<quoted text> From a homosexual point of view you make valid points. But as an adult male I also have the right to offer rebuttal to your recruitment campaigns to the youngsters. I also think my point that the insurance for gay partners will break the bank or cause employers to drop insurance for all. I also think homosexuals donít really see past their chosen communityís interests.
LOL. Your posts remind me of this:
"'98 Homosexual-Recruitment Drive Nearing Goal

SAN FRANCISCOóSpokespersons for the National Gay & Lesbian Recruitment Task Force announced Monday that more than 288,000 straights have been converted to homosexuality since Jan. 1, 1998, putting the group well on pace to reach its goal of 350,000 conversions by the end of the year. "

I thought it was it's city hall who were in to robbing the business?

The "McBandit," so named because of the McDonalds paper bag he placed his stolen cash in.

He robbed the Chase Bank inside Ralphs, 655 South Grand Avenue, Glendora, Californai.

I suppose it was too much to hope for that you could learn
Yes he was impeached by the house
that impeachment failed at trial in the senate :)
It died there, and no penalty from the impeachment were applied, a total waste of time money and effort.
Effect... zero ( other than to give you a hard on ) LOL
You are dense as a rock. The impeachment did not fail, the house has the SOLE power of impeachment and it most certainly did not fail, the House very much impeached Clinton.

The fact that the Senate did not convict or remove him from office does not change the fact that he was-is-and will always be- and IMPEACHED President.

The impeachment did not fail, if it had failed the Senate would not have held a trial.

But he was impeached, you finally admit that at least.
Give it up old man! He was impeached.
FUN Stuff!
Oh I know he wasnít, your successful impeachment didnít do a darn thing, but you think it was a total success so I thought I would just humor you along until the men in the white suits come and pick you up. Not one thing listed in the articles of impeachment were actually applied. ZipÖ nadaÖ a total failure.

It failed in the senate that is history, Just like the previous impeachment of Andrew Johnson did.

but you want to believe they were successes and I donít want to strain your already strained mind

Clinton's impeachment didn't "fail in the Senate". It was successfully concluded with his acquittal on Feb 12, 1999.

You are truly a moron!

It certainly didnít succeed as you seem to think it did. The impeachment is tried in the senate, and did not get the votes to pass, you call that a success?

Clinton was not removed from office as stated in the articles of impeachment.

You may have a different idea of success than I do.

How do you feel about what you would call the successful criminal case against OJ Simpson?

LOL

You might as well drop it, you are not capable of understanding what happened.

Was Clinton impeached Big D? Yes Mike he was.

How could his impeachment be a failure then Big D? Because I said it was and I am never wrong Mike.

I have said many dozens of times now that yes he was impeached by the house, is it a memory problem you have? Maybe that is why you donít remember the impeachments failure in the trial in the senate?

Did the penalty described in the articles of impeachment, the removal of the president from office succeed or fail?

why... because the impeachment did not pass the trial in the senate, and that is what you call a success.

pretty funny

The Republican's elected offcials in Washington D.C. haven't got over the butKicking they got in 2012.

Taking it to the limit, GOP, Republican idiots in Washington D.C. have decided to get side tracked and pick on a FEMALE rather than deal with the debt crises.

Just admit it McCain and Graham and your other fools calling themselves Republicans

The impeachment wasn't "TRIED" in the Senate, the ACCUSED was tried in the Senate you moron...

The impeachment proceedings had a;ready concluded, that's why there was a trial in the first place.

Get a clue. How about you simply admit you were wrong and we can all move on to something that actually happened this century?
