One of the dumbest things I saw yesterday was Newt Gingrich on Faux News expressing his views on the sanctity of his style of marriage. Seems being divorced/re-married numerous times makes him some sort of "good example"!

How about passing a law that says you can only marry twice in your lifetime? They swear before "God" to join for life but they don't mean it.

Regarding Superstorm Sandy, although the storm is long past, they recently discoverd the body of a man who died in the storm all these months later !

How sad that he died like this and nobody missed him for so long.:(

And this in a city of more than 8 million people.

Maggie, you dear thing, "50% of replacement" is called population control, and we just wish that it was a lot more of the stupids who were doing it.

We can't just keeping gobbling up every available resource the way we have.

But then ... you've never been able to grasp that principle, have you.

What happened to this thread? Europa: What the hell are you taking about that for?

And Snyper: Huh???

And Troy: Well, nothing can be said about people like him that hasn't been said many, many times before. What a maroon.

For some reason, the G & L Forum looks different now on Topix than other forums, and the "reply function" does not work for me in this forum, so...

In reply to: Sir Andrew: I mentioned that poor man who died in Superstorm Sandy, because I just read the article about it TODAY on nbc.com , AND....... if you bothered to read the article here about the "The 10 Dumbest Things Ever Said About Same-Sex Marriage", that article SPECIFICALLY MENTIONS SUPERSTORM SANDY. So my mentioning of this article about the discovery of this poor man's skeletonized body, apparently he went unmissed :( was NOT IRRELEVANT.

(And the top part of the page here is still upside down).

Marriage should be between a man and 3 women, who are all named Mrs Gingrich.

Actually the dumbest comment I have heard about SSM was, I'm ashamed to say, by a right-wing Aussie politician named Cory Bernardi.

"What is the next step?
"The next step, quite frankly, is having three people or four people that love each other being able to enter into a permanent union endorsed by society or any other type of relationship."
Senator Bernardi went on to say accepting gay marriage could lead to accepting bestiality.
"There are even some creepy people out there and I say 'creepy' deliberately who are unfortunately afforded a great deal more respect than I believe they deserve," he said.
"These creepy people say it is okay to have consensual sexual relations between humans and animals. Will that be a future step?
"In the future will we say,'These two creatures love each other and maybe they should be able to be joined in a union'."

I would like to see the school grade reports on these politicians.

Imagine using the Slippery Slope Fallacy in a public address.

Someone should slap his teachers, then him ... hard.

Well, of course they become politicians because they can't get a real job. We all know that.
