I don't really understand how gays getting married affects us straight people. John 8:7 And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them,“Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”. I know I'm a big time sinner. If they wanna have a state wedding. I am cool with that. So is our constitution "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."
In addition...."Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." To each his own, as long as they don't infringe on another persons rights, IMO.

Here are two pieces of news that may seem unrelated, but aren’t. President Obama’s job approval rating has hit a four year high of 60% at the same time as Fox News’ ratings plummet to a 12 year low.
In January, Fox News has its worst prime time month in the key age 25-54 demographic since August 2001. Greta Van Susteren had her worst month ever on the network, and her show registered the lowest prime time ratings for 10 PM on Fox since July of 2008. While MSNBC’s ratings were up 9% in total viewers , Fox News registered their single worst day with viewers age 25-54 July of 2008
Now who would have seen that coming?
Being elected by over 50% have somthing to do with that,you think?
There is no doubt in my mind, it has everything to do with their appalling treatment of Ron Paul during his run for the presidency.

President Reagan agreed to immigration reform in the 80's after assurances from Democrats that there would be steps to stop further illegal immigration. Since then, the illegal alien population has doubled. History is about to repeat itself.
You would think people would learn, but we just keep letting ourselves get lied to. We keep falling for the same rhetoric time after time on issue after issue and letting our country die a slow and painful death.

When you get older you are going to think about your posts and be thankful that you posted them anonymously, that is assuming that in your case wisdom will come with age.
you don't know me bud and it's you and your republican buddies on here that need to grow up. You cannot support a simple thesis with any type of factual evidence and everytime i post the facts all you and your buddies do is whine and cry and degrade me. Thats ok though i left that stuff in high school.

Delving into the Founding Father's own papers indicates something altogether different. Some of the Founding Fathers leaned right, but the majority were anti-monarchists, Freemasons and atheists who held what modern historical language would term a secularist and globalist view. In some cases -- like George Washington's -- this included a strongly gay-friendly attitude.
Among the Founding Fathers there were definitive class biases. Most of these men, like Washington (1732-99) and Thomas Jefferson, were wealthy land- and slave-owners who led aristocratic lifestyles and were elitist toward the "lower" classes.(Washington noted in a letter, for example, that those not of the upper classes were to be "treated civilly" but to be kept "at a proper distance, for they will grow upon familiarity, in proportion as you sink in authority.") Socialists these men were not. Yet some of their personal ethics and standards would reveal that they were more open to what would be considered a "modern," 21st-century perspective on life, love and sexuality than might be presumed in the stodgy, post-Puritan 18th-century colonies.

COMMUNIST RULES FOR REVOLUTION (Captured at Dusseldorf in May 1919 by Allied Forces)

1. Corrupt the young; get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial; destroy their ruggedness.

2. By specious argument cause the breakdown of old moral virtues; honesty, sobriety, continence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness.

3. Encourage civil disorders and foster a lenient and soft attitude on the part of government toward such disorders.

4. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.(Racial differences?)

5. Get people's minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books, plays, and other trivialities.

6. Get control of all means of publicity.(Media)

7. Destroy the people's faith in their natural leaders by holding the latter up to contempt, ridicule and obloquy (disgrace).

8. Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext, with a view to confiscation and leaving the population helpless.

I think #7 comes into play here.

After a lifetime of serving my country, I think I know a little about it. Maybe I do, maybe I don't, but I know one thing for sure: You are full of shit and know nothing about everything.
It is not what I know it is what I post. I posted a link to a credible news source that says you and all your republican thinking was wrong. Serving in the military does not make you an expert on the pay in the military. The facts are there and noone cares what you think or know it is all in the facts comming straight from the sources. Believe it or not, but you will be there wwaiting for Mitt Romney to win with the rest of your republican buddies when you know otherwise.

<quoted text>I was just stating fact. Somebody like you, who gets on here and acts like they know everything really knows nothing. You make yourself look dumber than everyone else. And the one real problem i have with homosexuals is they demanding their rights and they don't give a crap how it affects us straight people just so long as they get their way. Your president you defend, since he so for all the homosexuals, i said he's gay himself. I get tired of you people saying you were born that way. That's like saying God made a mistake. He gives you freewill, you chose to be that way. Your dad didn't make you that way, YOU chose to be that way. And yes it's in the old testament, homosexuality was an abomination(leviticus 18:22)and you were to be put to death over it. Sodom and Gomorrah(genesis chapter 19)pretty much told us how God felt about homosexuality. Thank god he has mercy in the new testament but you are still forbidden to do it now. You cannot rip a page out of the bible because you disagree with it. It's there in black and white. So if you have a problem with what i told you take it up with god. And don't try to force your ways on us straight people. The biggest majority of people in the U S are straight. Why should your rights trump over our rights. So get over yourself and have some respect.
The problem for you and the other simple minded republicans on here is that you see I am right and instead of acknowledging the fact, you instead resort to name calling and deroggatory comments to make yourselves feel better about yourselves. Then if that does not work you in turn make up a fake poster name and post even further simple minded rehtoric and lies and get all your buddies to believe that it is actually me when in fact it has a different location of origin. If it is not planned then that really makes you look even more ignorant than you already are. Incase you did not get that message. I am NOT gay. The poster that posted that message was just trying not to get out of the circle jerk ring of republican buddies that are on here. If you bought that ignorance he wrote then you'll believe anything. He had a totally different city of origin. However, I do support gays r ights and the rights of all men as we are ALL created equal not just some rich pompus welfare sucking republicans who get on here to spill their sorrows of how EEEVVVILL Obama really is.

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.
Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
Words that soak into your ears are whispered¦....not yelled.
Meanness don't just happen overnight.
Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.
Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.
You cannot unsay a cruel word.
Every path has a few puddles.
When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.
The best sermons are lived, not preached.
Most of the stuff people worry about, ain't never gonna happen anyway.
Don't judge folks by their relatives.
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
Live a good and honorable life, then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.
Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.
Timin' has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.
Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.
The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'.
Always drink upstream from the herd.
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.
If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.
Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly,
Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.
