The Long Beach Playhouse has been hijacked to serve as a political pulpit for gay special interests.

This is nothing new.

Neil Simon made short work for gay male "directors" with a psychotic passion for turning classics into gay political pieces.

Rent out "The Goodbye Girl." Simon makes it safe to point and laugh at gay whack cases hijacking classic plays, creating unintended comedic results.

In the meantime, I won't be attending any more plays at the Long Beach Playhouse until the creative director is gone. There's no excuse for trashing classic plays just because you think you can.

Yes. Debauchery reigns supreme. As much as we love our Homosexual friends and the cute little lesbians, it now becoming clear why - in more enlightened times - why engaging in Homosexual behavior was prohibited by law.

Do you really; really need to have a law to prevent you from engaging in Homosexual behavior; sugar?

If you don't like the plays, don't go. It's very simple really. Those paying to produce the plays get to decide what the play is. If nobody attends, they will do something else. Stop whining and get a life.

You do realize, that back in them good old days you are harkening back to, those same behaviors among heterosexual were prohibited as well? California's law was in theory anyways, an equal opportunity offensive intrusion into peoples privacy. Should that part of the law come back too? How's that for enlightenment?

Yes. Perverting classical literature by putting a Homosexual spin to it is merely an ancillary problem. The greater problem is that of the Homosexual and "Liberal" non-Homosexual legislature using hard earned taxpayer money to teach Homosexuality to little non-Homosexual children in expensive taxpayer funded Government schools.

They've been teaching about haterosexuals for eons
.
Now that they are teaching about us too; that's called equality
.
So here's your first lesson:
.
1. Gays pay taxes too; so your taxpayer money argument is moot

True. Even though our Homosexual friends and the cute little lesbians are only a tiny segment of the entire overtaxed California electorate, some of them partake in the simple worker *("middle")* class pleasure of enjoying an occasional tobacco product. While they do pay their fair share of confiscatory tobacco taxes, though, we should weigh those taxes against the vast majority of Californians who are non-Homosexuals, and whom are heavily taxed every-time they enjoy drinking Stolichnaya or other fine Russian vodka products.

I'd think conservatives would be more respectful to minorities (such as homosexuals), as their numbers themselves are starting to dwindle due to a rejection of their antiquated ideas.

As long as conservatives have most of the money (and they do), I don't think they'll be high-stepping to your absurdist fantasies anytime soon, miss trailer trash.

We've taught about gays since at least the early fifties. Many short films for junior high students were made warning them not to get into cars with men they don't know, so stop making things up, Curly Sue.

All of that right wing money really helped the conservatives in the presidential election didn't it? HAHAHAHA. I wonder how much $$$ they are going to waste in the next one, which anyone with half a brain knows is going to be won by the dems.

If you're in the chosen party, why are you such losers?
In case you missed it, in every single important matter, Obama does what he's told. Drone Air Strikes rock, don't they? Can't get enough of Gitmo. "Diversity" helps get my lawn mowed, house cleaned, and fast food at a cheap price, so I don't have to look at YOUR fat face when I'm ordering takeout.

And one more thing... wake up, creepy. You lost the house, and you're gonna lost the senate. Obama fatigue is in play, and he's going to get a republican into the White House, just like Carter did.

Once again, game, set match.

Now go suck your mom's tiddy before it dries out on you.

I don't care what you say. I love white people. Especially republican white people. LOVE THEM!!!! Nothing can beat 'em!! White people are AWESOME!!!
Without white people, life is not worth living. Ask anyone who's dependent on them.

I'm not a democrat, but republicans are so amazingly stupid these days I'll take the dems as the lesser of two evils. Lose the house and senate? You know even conservative texas is projected to go democratic blue-state sooner or later right? It's going to be intensely amusing.

Like I said, democrats attract losers. I think being a democrat is a genetic trait that can be passed on from one generation to another. You know. Like an Obama Phone.

You see, it's still happening for you, Jessica. The only phrases that reflexively piqued your interest is "Democrat," and "Obama Phone."

Think of it, again, like a golden retriever. A golden retriever feels genetically compelled to fetch a ball, while many other breeds might occasionally, some never. So you see, the same genetic preprogrammed response that triggers the retriever to yelp and jump about in anticipation when a ball goes sailing by him, is about the same response as when you read in the newspaper that people are demonstrating in front of McDonald's for a lump $5 an hour wage increase.

For you, Jessica, free will is an illusion. The very notion of it makes your brain close down. You call it "resting."

It happens about every time you have to make an important decision, and there's no paternal figure to tell you what to do. It's also a big hint as to why democrats are so in love with slavery. They just can't give it up. To be slaves. To "own" slaves. To move slaves around like chess pieces. Even to hold demonstrations for slaves rights to remain slaves.

You're a sick fuq, Jessica. There's nothing you can do about it. But that's an unpleasant descriptive in polite company┬ľso we just call you "democrat."
