Petey, about that Gay Republican. I think you've been sniffing too much macassar at your hair emporium. Next, you'll tell us you know an honest Democrat.

<quoted text>You may be right Mr/Ms Covina, but here is an interesting oxymoron for you. My partner Jonathan is both gay and a Republican :/
He votes to the right because he says that California's wacky, liberal laws are driving good small businesses out of our state! I see his point entirely, but alas, I have my own hair salon so it matters not to me either way. My tips I receive for my flamboyant creations gets me through any taxes levied my way ;)

Well sir, if my lifelong partner Jonathan were to take ill and I would need to provide the necessary medical care and/or make arrangements for him, I would not be able to under the current laws :/
That is a privileged oversight that many like straight individuals like you do not raise an inkling of a thought about :(
Go UCLA/LGBT Bruins and our progressive changes we demand for our ever-changing world!
Your problem is that you think you have the right to provide medical, at my expense, for your sex partner and our concern should start with and end with you. The terminologies are an illusion of your own choosing and deception. We are all heterogeneous beings, and that means formulated for men and women relationships. If a mother has sex with her adult daughter she is also denied the right to provide medical for her.

You said LGBT so how is as bisexual or straight transsexual suddenly gay? Sorry Bud, the fact that you have left holes in your reasoning does not give you a free pass. Also, a boat is not car if it had an engine, likewise you having gay sex is not suddenly a marriage. Finally, consensus by less than 5% of the world does not create s right, slave owners discovered that, after s longer tenure and thus the world changed back.

Don't we have your kind for that! We straights see the LGBT as X-men mutations, so we have sympathy, not hate.

Oh my Cali Girl, How can you call a bleeding heart with an "alternative" minded lifestyle like me a racist? I am highly offended by that remark :/

We like nicely manicured lawns in West Hollywood and my salon has never looked cleaner at the end of each day. Last time I checked, I could not find anyone other than of Hispanic origin to do a better job :)

I please ask that your retract your "racist" statement! As for your “Go USC”, um, well, yes I can understand that as your football teams have historically clobbered my True Blue and Gold Bruins. But we are finally getting better ;)

Go LGBT/UCLA Bruins! In Westwood, it is progressive tolerance for all!

Gee fella, I'm just simply looking equal status for medical benefits for same-sex partners. BTW, at YOUR expense, you are more likely to have your personal belongs stolen/vandalized from you by straight, male thugs over your lifetime than by gay individuals asking for equal partner rights :/

You seem pretty uptight. I hope you are being satisfied in your heterogeneous relationship and do not have to resort to extra-curricular activity. Careful fella, sometimes these so-called female street walker's boats can have big, long cars under their hood ;)

Go Bruins! UCLA, leading the progressive way against homophobic insecurities!

Well Pepps, I'm not sure how to respond to that :/

So for the record, my significant partner Jonathan is an Elephant, yes I do occasionally overly enjoy the aroma of some of my salon products, and I believe by most of my very revealing Topix posts, you can see that I am one, flamboyant, open and honest Donkey ;)

Is that your defense for lying on your Section 8 application that you are Hispanic?

What of those who have conserved water all along?

Glendora Mayor Judy Nelson sent in a letter saying that Glendora is a leader in water conservation.

But she failed to mention that in my opinion some of Glendora’s citizens and the city have wasted water for decades by overwatering their lawns and plants in order to have a beautiful property, so it’s easy now to cut back 20 percent and still have a green yard.

I have always conserved water for the last 20 years not because I was into saving water but because I wanted a lower water bill.

Since I am now restricted to two days a week, my lawn is going brown.

If I had abused water for the last 20 years and now cut back 20 percent my lawn would still be green. I would just overwater on my days.

It’s a shame that a beautiful city like Glendora would instill fear and intimidation targeting a young couple who is trying to conserve water.

Putting fear and intimidation in people is a gang tactic and should not be used by cities.

Gov. Brown just signed a bill that condemns moves that punish drought-conscious Californians.

Next year both Gov. Brown and Assemblywoman Cheryl Brown will draft a bill that protects all citizens who are drought-conscious Californians like the Kortes.

Mayor Nelson, please join with Gov. Brown, Assemblywoman Brown and other leaders in government in creating bills that protect homeowners from harassing, threatening, intimidating notices and penalizing drought-conscious homeowners like the Kortes in Glendora.

Don't be so sensitive Hon! It's all good and yes Koko is/was amazing :)

So tell me from your observations driving around town, "who" does the best gardening? CASE CLOSED!!! Now if you would ask me about best painter for the price, then the Asians have that market covered as far as I am concerned ;)

And girlfriend, don't tell any of my fellow Bruins, but I think there are a lot of hot looking guys on the USC Water Polo team ;)

Go Bruins! Let's keep that last statement between us sister!
