No. I just find you to be creepy and quite frankly, it is disturbing that you use this dead woman to further your agenda of attacking NTR. I wanted to let you know you aren't fooling me by wearing another name.
I respectfully say this....you are nuts.

Not one word in my post about NTR and the deceased woman. How desecrating to this dead woman you are to use her as a basis to blame others for not idolizing NTR. You are obsessed with this woman, an internal sickness and now it is spreading into a mental illness.

Okay, be my guest and prove what other poster name I utilize, go ahead do it.

My husband was reading the newspaper the other day when he noticed the Obits listed a man he went to school with. The man still was a young man when he died and I made the terrible mistake of saying;
"I wonder what he died from!"

My husband immediately said; "You just want to know because you can denigrate NTR."

There is no such thing as truth in journalism anymore by the major media outlets, IMAO. Our culture has become such that agenda driven lies and disinformation just meant to entertain sells better than truth in precise unspun genuine info presented in a readable fashion and specifically designed to ferret out the truth of major issues.
A direct result of the dumbing down of the American people that has occurred since the late 60s.

I believe it would be safe to say that Topix has a wider coverage than any major media anywhere with just the readers alone minus those that actually post on it. There are 26 people just reading this forum alone on this (for lack of another word) node.

At least the Aryan Brotherhood go to prison when they murder someone.

Obama gets a pass because he is black or partly black when he murders.

Murder is murder, no matter what rock you hide under.

Obama and Hillary---murders of Americans...lovers of Muslim terrorist.

America doesn't need enemies---the White House is full of them.
Using your theory means Bush Jr should be in prison too for the American deaths that resulted from his false accusations about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

How the Republican Party could go extinct

The party has a golden chance to make inroads with Latinos and gays with one immigration move. And it's blowing it

BY KERRY ELEVELD

From a pure political perspective, supporting inclusion of same-sex couples in the immigration reform bill should be a slam dunk for both Democrats and Republicans. Scuttling the package over this provision would alienate the growing Latino constituency by blocking a pathway to citizenship — and denying rights to LGBT Americans would be ignoring the direction of the country on civil rights.

And yet, according to a flurry of news stories from the past couple of weeks, the die is apparently cast on the matter: Allowing some 30,000 same-sex couples the same access to green cards that opposite-sex couples enjoy will halt the bill for 11 million immigrants. Even before the provision has been debated or a vote count begun, Republicans are holding firm to a position that’s literally killing their party. Meanwhile, Democrats run scared, to the detriment of the overall bill.

In plain English: The Republicans need this bill because their party doesn’t have a future if they can’t appeal to Latino voters. On the flip side, Democrats shouldn’t be sacrificing any progressive priorities before the horse-trading even begins because the more they start with, the more they will be able to keep in the end.

Now it may not seem like news that the GOP’s most reliable antigay senator, Lindsey Graham, is threatening to kill the 844-page bill he helped craft over the issue, but it is mind boggling that his three Republican counterparts in the gang of eight (Sens. Flake, McCain, and Rubio) have doubled down on the position that the LGBT provision will sink the bill. Think of it this way, the GOP – the party that has lost the popular vote in five out of the last six presidential elections – has the chance at this very moment to begin transitioning from the party of yesteryear to the party of tomorrow. From the party of declining margins to the party of expansion. And instead of opting for life, they are angling for extinction by threatening to walk away from the bill.

Must we really revisit the fact that the ever-growing tidal wave of Latino voters chose President Obama over Mitt Romney by a margin of 71 to 27 percentage points? Meanwhile, white Evangelicals – the voting bloc that sustained the GOP for almost 20 years – accounted for 26 percent of 2012 voters (a very solid turnout that exceeded their 2004 showing by 3 percent) yet they still didn’t have the juice to push Romney over the top. Simply put, Republicans need the new lifeline that Latino voters represent and, therefore, they need the bill worse than the Democrats. And if the GOP really thinks it can walk away from this bill and justify it to Latinos by saying the gays killed the bill, think again. That rationale may play on the Hill — where most lawmakers live in an insular world of their own making — but it isn’t going to work at the polls. The next election won’t be a referendum on LGBT people, it will be a referendum on lawmakers. Plus, in a bilingual poll that was commissioned by the LGBT immigration group for which I consult, 64% of Latino voters said they support including same-sex couples in immigration reform....(cont.)

I think it depend on whether you're on the national page or your local page. The national page reads 211 viewing at the moment, but I think that includes locals. Topix states they are the largest news outlet on the internet. I dont know about that, but I've been on others and they suck. I've been wanting to check out this comic's site, Adam, something or another. I'll get it and let you know.

I see you didn't get the earlier memo. No one cares what a troll like you thinks, and they don't take you "seriously."

However, if I don't matter, then stop posting to me, dummy. LOL!
