I dont know anything about the Bush family financing the third reich?? that seems a bit far fethched and something id hear from within your party, as part of a civil war, in your party.
those were NOt very nice words sarah had for karl at cpac.
now sHE is kinda a nazi.... the new new rethugs.
the Bush family is heavily involved with the saudi royal family because they are both more or less in the same business, energy.
JEb doesnt stand a snowballs chance in the primaries...
or didnt you watch in 12'??
the orthodoxy of your party made the primary season like a clip art web site, for democratic party, general election attack ads on the rethugs.
some of the wacky things that were said!!!! my goodness.
tacking back to the center(to win) from THAT loonacy, would be hard for anyone, even with all the corporate cash in the world.
mitt tried, ill give him that.
but during the primaries, as i recall it was "ANYBODY BUT MITT"
as four candidates from the far reich, made separate runs at the mad Mitt for front runner status....
...including religious zealot rick santorum!! I was impressed and entertained all at once...
santorum came out against college education, condoms and JFK, all in ONE week!
I swear, no one will beat hilly bags if she want the job....
all the political wind in the world is behind her run....
and that includes bush family baggage and how loony your party has become since the last bush left office.
ps; two wars, crashed economy, bad rethuglican, no whitehouse.
OK, try it. Google "Bush Crime Family" What can it hurt to try it? I'm not going to talk any more trash, just try it, ok? Tell me what you think? What can it hurt? I have no party affiliation. Call me "Independent" Not a TEA party guy, not a Dem, nor a Repub.

Rock!!

you are so liberal all of a sudden..

respecively.

you are half right about the civil war, lincoln only used freeing the slaves in 1863... a s away of mustering support for the war.

BUT we were all brought up on "united we stand"

so a separate slave state didnt make that much sense....especially with the worldwide challenges of the 20th century.

you are right about fundamentalists, they travel under all flags and religions..

and background checks as well...

I think responsible gun owners would like to buy a gun that ONLY they can use(palm print recognition)

that is my favorite idea....

and if background check save 2o kids from being shot up with an AR15, then i think I can get behind inconveiencing all these freaks who are buying their 19th gun for afew hours or minutes that it takes to run a check on his or her record...

we dont want felons(who demostrated they can not handle firearms responsibly) to have eASY access to them.

Im with you, it wont save many lives, but a starting with a handful of lives saved, would be helpful.

how do you think straight parents handle gay kids? particularly "christian" parents the espouse the same views as you?
let me tell you about those ramifications as i deal with them regularly as a volunteer in my community....i see the teens that are hurt, emotionally and physically, to the point where they want to commit suicide - at the hands of people that are supposed to love them unconditionally and protect them. sometimes we can intervene in time and successfully save that teen, sometimes not.
and let me speak to the situation you point to - my partner & i are the parents of 3 straight kids - 1 young adult in college, one teen in high school and the youngest in elementary school. we have other friends that have children as well. there is no issue insofar as dealing with "anger"....or wanting to hug the kids, etc. the kids see us as their parents, know us as their parents and treat us as their parents. likewise, we treat them as we should - our kids. we coach them, discipline them, teach them, interact with them, listen to them, lecture them, the same as you do yours. you fail to see the similarities. throw into that mix is us raising them in going to church with us and being active in the church and our community. all 3 kids do well in school, have friends, are active in sports and clubs. nothing different from you'd expect in any other middle class kid growing up in america.
...and another thing you might want to consider - straight parents brought us homosexuals up in this world (if we're adults now) and taught us how to be adults and how to be parents. the successes and failures you see are from our raising from straight parents.
Skip the good guy makes everyone else a bad guy stories.

Your partner and you are not the parents of three kids. ONE of you may be to each one, but not mutually.

Those children are missing a mother or father in your home. That is no small distinction from what God and nature designed. You can never equate to that.

As to Church, here are the words of Jesus;

Matthew 19:4-6 (MSG)
4 He answered, "Haven't you read in your Bible that the Creator originally made man and woman for each other, male and female?
5 And because of this, a man leaves father and mother and is firmly bonded to his wife, becoming one flesh—no longer two bodies but one.
6 Because God created this organic union of the two sexes, no one should desecrate his art by cutting them apart."

You cut apart and desecrate what God has made.

But, KiMare does not lie. KiMare speaks more eloquently than just about any other poster, and put your side to shame. Your side has to resort to lies and insults, witness Chongo and its repeated insults about being aborted, Chongo has nothing else, it is why I enjoy stepping on Chongo, more than any other poster in here. Chongo calls people "b!tch", and other names, brings in peoples children, says shit about their kids getting pearl necklaces and such. Who could respect Chongo? KiMare is one of the best posters in here, and I enjoy watching your side produce evasions to KiMares posts.
Thanks Randy.

I don't need to, the court has already explained it. Again if you people would actually do some actual research instead of simply taking everything you read on a liberal blog and repeating it you might actually learn something.
"Plaintiffs' reliance on Loving v Virginia (388 US 1 [1967]) for the proposition that the US Supreme Court has established a fundamental "right to marry the spouse of one's choice" outside the male/female construct is misplaced."..."In its brief due process analysis, the Supreme Court reiterated that marriage is a right "fundamental to our very existence and survival" (id., citing Skinner, 316 US at 541)—a clear reference to the link between marriage and procreation. It reasoned: "To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes ... is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law" (id.). Although the Court characterized the right to marry as a "choice," it did not articulate the broad "right to marry the spouse of one's choice" suggested by plaintiffs here. Rather, the Court observed that "[t]he Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discriminations" (id.[emphasis added]).[FN2] Needless to say, a statutory scheme that burdens a fundamental right by making conduct criminal based on the race of the individual who engages in it is inimical to the{**7 NY3d at 372} values embodied in the state and federal Due Process clauses. Far from recognizing a right to marry extending beyond the one woman and one man union,[FN3] it is evident from the Loving decision that the Supreme Court viewed marriage as fundamental precisely because of its relationship to human procreation.[FN4][*13]"- Hernandez v Robles
Go AkP....keep it coming. Thanks for the legal lesson.

1.) First off you try to equate the terms "sexual intercourse" and "coitus". They are not the same words.
"Sexual intercourse" takes place between two people of any gender. Do you deny that same-gender couples have sexual intercourse? I don't think you do.
"Coitus" very specifically refers to the "sexual union between a male and a female involving insertion of the penis into the vagina." (from the on line dictionary "Farflex" http://www.thefreedictionary.com/coitus ).
You may think I'm splitting hairs. But it's important for you to understand that there is a very distinct difference.

You can't enter a Mormon Church or temple just because your NOT a PAYING member, sounds very much like a CULT, pay to play.

On the other hand a Mormon in good standing or bad as per the cult Mormon leaders, can and are welcome in other denomination of religion in the United States of America.

Ok, let me pose a hypothetical for you...Suppose, just for the sake of argument, that someone was ex-military, got into trouble for a minute, got a felony, later had it expunged and now owned guns, what would you say to that ? Let him own guns or not?

Polls don't decide anything, most are fixed depending how the question is asked. People show different results when they vote.

America made no decisions, sir, the Electoral College did.
well who is the electoral college anyways?? martians?

I have my doubts about the electoral college as well, but EVERY single attempt to dismantle it has failed.

the president beat Mitt romney by 124 electoral votes and 4 million popular votes??

now WHO won??

it wasnt romney.

ps; any plan to subvert the popular vote BY STATE, would be compleatly unfair...

OMG, you really are stupid. Don't you know that we didn't fight that war to free the slaves? Ever wonder why it was called "The War Of Northern Aggression"? It was because the South was making so much $$ from the trade it had, with other countries, that the North ordered it to sell them raw, unfinished goods and products, at a drastic loss, and then buy back finished goods and products, at rapish profits, that the South said "no". It was then that the North moved on the South, with blockades of all ports that the South used for exportation. THAT was what the Civil War was all about. Lincoln owned slaves. Lincoln said that if he could save the union, without freeing one slave, he would do so. The abolishment of slavery was a strike at the workforce that the South used, to make its profits. You dumb-ass. Don't post when you don't know what you are talking about. Damn.... You're welcome for the history lesson.
Well said. Does he think the racist north would die fighting to free the slaves? It's amazing how the liberals are educated from movies. They should watch the Civil war documentary by Ken Burn's since they don't seem to be able to read.
