You must mean a PERVERT LIKE LARRY CRAIG... that real good Moralistic Repub...Maybe you should go out and SHOOT yourself some ROADKILL for your lunchbox...After all you "Moralistic" repubs like to have your bible in one hand and a GUN in the other
And at least my IQ is NOT my SHOE SIZE like yours...which means you must wear a shoe size of 0!!!
And as for unions...You Right Wing Dimwits like to keeep all the money for yourselves while you sit on your Lazy Fat Ases and collect all the dividends and bonuses the average worker MAKES for you...You are really a Walking Repub PUTZ!!! And if there HAD been a union where I worked people who had 20, 30 and 40 years wouldn' have been fired from their jobs!!! And one was fired while she was in the Hospital...UNIONS ARE NEEDED FOR THE AVERAGE WORKER...Just not for the CEO PUTZ'S who grab every dime they can get...Just like you!!!!! And you had better get one thing straight...I have been here LONGER and WILL CONTINUE to keep posting the truth about you imbecilic Right Wingers...So you better keep your typing fingers in good shape!!! I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE...THE TRUTH WILL ALWAYS BY POSTED BY ME!!!!! SO STICK THAT IN YOUR CRACK PIPE AND SMOKE THAT!!!

ESPECIALLY FOR MONTY BURNT BUNS.....Makes Barney Frank look like a Choir boy..and maybe he was in the catholic church in Boston..And just maybe he was raped by one of those "Nice Pedophile Priests" and scarred him for life!
Q: How many Republican politicians can you fit in the closet?
A: Evidently, all of them.
It’s gone past ridiculous and straight to the absurd. At this point, it appears your average public restroom has more gay Republicans in it than clean handtowels. The “holier-than-thou” party has spent an awful lot of time on their knees this past year, but they haven’t been doing a lot of praying.
I have no theories why this is the case, other than I think that being gay is the way God made some people and being conservative is a choice, and almost every Republican I’ve met thinks the opposite.
But why question it? The larger point is that if you enjoy seeing politicians destroyed by their own hypocrisy, it’s been a very, very good year. So I give you the top five republican gay sex scandals!!

PART I....
1. Mark Foley
U.S. Representative
(September 28, 2006)
The Crime: Sending sexually laced, gramatically challenged instant messages and e-mails to teenaged boys in the Congressional page program for more than 10 years.
The Hypocrisy: Chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children. One of the foremost opponents of child pornography in the Senate.
The Quote:“get a ruler and measure it for me”
2. Ted Haggard
Leader of the National Association of Evangelicals
(November 2006)
The Crime: Paying male prostitutes for sex and snorting crystal meth.
The Hypocrisy: A powerful force in the evangelical movement, Haggard participated in weekly meetings with President George Bush and top advisors where he gave spiritual advice. He taught that homosexuality was an abomination and actively lobbied against gay rights.
The Quote:“I did not have a homosexual relationship with a man in Denver.”

MONTY BURNT BUNS...PART 2.....

3. Larry Craig
U.S. Senator
Senate Liason for Mitt Romney’s Presidential Campaign
(June 11, 2007)
The Crime: Soliciting sex from an undercover cop in an airport bathroom
The Hypocrisy: Craig twice voted against adding the words “sexual orientation” to the federal hate crimes law. Craig also voted to give states the right to refuse to recognize gay marriage–a right they already had, but the Senator wanted to really, really prove he didn’t like gay people.
The Quote:“I am not gay, I don’t do these kinds of things.”
4. Bob Allen
Member of the Florida House of Representatives
Florida Chairman of John McCain’s Presidential Campaign
(July 11, 2007)
The Crime: Offering an undercover cop $20 to allow Allen to blow him in a men’s room in a public park. After being arrested, Allen tried to explain that he only offered to blow the cop because the cop was a “burly black man” and he “didn’t want to become a statistic.”
The Hypocrisy: Allen was one of 21 Florida legislators to sign Gov. Jeb Bush’s friend-of-the-court brief supporting the state’s ban on gays adopting children, and he co-sponsored an unsuccessful bill that would have enhanced penalties for “offenses involving unnatural and lascivious acts” such as indecent exposure.
The Quote:“I certainly wasn’t there to have sex with anybody and certainly wasn’t there to exchange money for it.”
5. Glenn Murphy Jr.
National Chairman of the Young Republicans
Chairman of the Clark County Republican Party
(July 28, 2007)
The Crime: Murphy got a fellow Young Republican drunk and then spent the night at his house. The other young man woke up in the middle of the night to find Murphy giving him mouth-to-penis resuscitation. After this incident, a 1998 sexual battery report came to light in which Murphy was alleged to have done the exact same thing.
The Hypocrisy: Murphy was a well-paid political consultant for Republican candidates and often advised them to use gay marriage as a wedge issue to paint their opponents as out of touch with traditional values.
The Quote:“I was in the Sound of Music in High School…don’t ask”(from his now-defunct Myspace page

It hurts to have the rugged pulled out from under you at anytime! But, the hardworking managers and staff of each of these store deserved better than they got from any and all of the kb toy's executive and operations people. Constantly being lied to and always overworked and seldom appreciated where experienced by all. The corporate savior Mr. Denny Williams should receive his share of the blame...total arrogant man that he is...led the company to it's shame
