Now our system has to play things out. It was hard to not notice this. Today we depend on massive infusions of currency to do the same thing. That currency needs to continue or things break down. Local areas are extracting more and more from the state to compensate for the loss of revenue needed to keep things going. In many states they are getting tired of it. As the increases of aid never stops. Just saying. And we hav enot gotten to the federal level yet.
You write this because you can't help but to post drivel.

America's first settlers from England came here in major part due to religious intolerance. Now the intolerance to religion is domestic.

We must break up into several entities given each person a choice to live in the one he/she desires. This will quell the growing hate.

Always remember: If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.

The new world order has gotten around that. We will not act together and we are taxed to high and collect to many benefits. Government is huge. The totalitarian state will be huge and it is here to a degree. All of those things you wrote needs to be rewritten for a diverse, politically correct, quota laden culture. We are funding our own demise now. And have been. Now how do we throw away the totalitarian state apparatus while keeping the programs we love. The answer is we won't. So the all encompassing state will come to power and somebody or more will pay. Just saying it will not end it. And there are not enough people interested in freedom as opposed to collecting. Tell me different.

It wasn't funny. Just lame.

The old Saul Alinsky BS is about as factual as someone quoting Rush Limbaugh or Pat Robertson for proof of their claims that all conservatives echo their views.

Saul is one person who wrote a pretty good book a few decades ago.

Much has changed since then excerpt the blinders many anti gay conservatives still insist on wearing. Your ship is sinking and you are trying to tell everyone it's just a little leaky.

sodomy would also include getting a hummer from one's wife or girlfriend...guess you'll never have to worry about that...

You're wrong you twerp! What you refer to is not sodomy. Dealing with the intellectually bereft is tedious. Go fill your a** with a carrot or a cucumber and pretend you are sodomizing yourself.

I have to agree with you that "Dealing with the intellectually bereft is tedious."

Which is why I responded to you. I don't mind helping the slower learners.

You claim to be from England and want to argue the law that SCOTUS ruled unconstitutional BECAUSE it was ONLY BEING ENFORCED against male on male activity, when it also banned the same acts between heterosexuals, even married ones?

too precious

I make no claim to being from England. Your education has failed you. I am from the UK but I am not, nor have I ever claimed to be from England, nor in fact am I from England. It is foolish to engage your ignorance when you are out of your intellectual league.

I have enough pity for you too. Sodomy is buggery. Buggery is anal sex. Anal sex is repugnant. Oral sex is not sodomy, it is just oral sex. Buggery is sodomy and sodomy is buggery. It's as simple as that. I know my pity will never cure you, but I am such a decent chap that I pity you anyway.

As a minority group your sort is always forced to operate as a pressure group. Then you get carried away with yourselves. Check all posts by queers. You are all spouting bile. You can't become normal by until you find approval and you will never find approval until you lose 'the attitude'.

again, you could have just looked up the definition of sodomy...

in fact, you did not even need to do that as someone posted for you.

sad how your prejudice and bigotry prevents you from seeing the facts in front of your face. they usually do that to people....

Your ISP says UK. That was what I was going by. Nothing foolish about that with the exception that I even bother responding to your posts.

I have to laugh at the people who voted "Nuts, clueless and spam" on posts that suggest looking up the meaning of Sodomy. From those votes it's clear that a lot of so called "straight posters" think an awful lot about anal sex, despite their protestations that they consider it 'buggery' and disgusting.

I'm pretty sure this post will be spammed as well with silly icons.

In the USA, Sodomy laws applied to any sex act that was not penile penetration of the vagina for the purposes of reproduction.

If you're too lazy to look it up then there is no reason for anyone to take what you write seriously.

well, you've seen what happens when mciver and Serfs up try to use words and their own thoughts to express and idea...perhaps it is best if they just poke buttons with icons behind them. they look less foolish that way.
