I know homosexuals aren't a race - again.
A minority is defined as a group differing, especially in race, religion, or ethnic background, from the majority of a population. Homosexuality isn't a race, isn't an ethnicity & isn't a religion. To define people with a different sexual preference than most people as a "minority" is just pandering to their wants.
That is pretty black n white....
How does that definition rule homosexuals out as a minority?

That's true. We are all born credulous. So as I lived my life and became more sophisticated and learned to be skeptical of claims, especially extraordinary claims, I now have an expectation of evidence and proof prior to accepting such claims. So has that damned me to Hell?

Don't you apply skepticism to other religions? Why do you make a special exception for one in particular?

Another show on Jerry wanting to sleep with a woman but was conflicted because he didn't really like her.
In that episode there was even a scene where his penis and his brain were playing a chess game against each other.
Then there was the episode in which his girlfriend was always naked.
Then there were the many episodes about Elaine having sex- and Kramer- and George......
No......on the minority issue......you are the one who keeps indicating you think it is about race.
And referring to the homosexual community as a minority is NOT pandering; you yourself stated they represent about 1% of the total population; therefore, they ARE a minority.
WTF is "homosexual masturbation"?!?

So, to you, a show that shows hetero sex is glorifying hetero sex? You're an odd ball.

And for the umpteenth time, I am not saying homosexuals are a race.

By allowing a 99 week unemployment check to be tolerated IS catering to the lazy. You don't see that? And as a liberal, you support it.
<quoted text>
Nothing to back it up, huh? By extending unemployment to 99 weeks, all you've done is raise the unemployment rate. Really, why work when you can get "free" money?
"a number of estimates suggest that we have paid a price for the extended unemployment benefits adopted by Washington in response to the recession - somewhere between 0.4 and 1.8 percentage points of unemployment. "
"The UI benefit extensions that have occurred between the summer of 2008 and the end of 2010 are estimated to have had a cumulative effect of raising the unemployment rate by .77 to 1.54 percentage points."
http://econlog.econlib.org/archives/2012/09/h...
I am personally not allowing ANYTHING.

YOU have a problem with 99 weeks of unemployment? Then YOU write to government officials- whining to me about it is stupid and all the more as I am not the one allowing it.

Of course, I am also not the one CRUCIFYING those who actually NEED those 99 weeks of unemployment because despite their best efforts to find a job, they can't, but I know that to you the solution would be for them to just starve to death or be homeless.

There's that Christian charitable nature of yours, RR- rearing its very ugly head.

And why look for work if one is collecting unemployment? Because only in a VERY few exceptions does unemployment even come anywhere close to being what a person needs to live on for bare minimum needs.

However, here in Florida, Disney hires more part-time employees than full time in order to not have to offer them health insurance.

Thankfully, the change to that is underway and insurance companies will no longer be able to deny coverage to those who work less than 30 hours a week.

But for now, at 30 hours a week and at $7.50/hour- the going rate for most Disney jobs, that works out to $225 a week whereas the maximum unemployment benefit in Florida is $275 a week.

So let's say someone got laid off who was earning $30,000 a year- not a lot of money and even in Florida not a lot of money.

But with that $30,000 a year, they were able to pay their bills and stay afloat.

But now they lost that job. They are eligible for the maximum unemployment benefit of $275 a week which works out to $14,300 per year- less than half of what they were earning.

So you think they should be thrilled to take a part time job at Disney for even less money and at 30 hours at $7.50/hour works out to a mere $11,700 a year instead of the less than half of their salary they would receive in unemployment benefits?

Are you NUTS, man? Say they DO take that job at Disney- you gonna step up and feed, house and clothe their children?

Even if they work TWO part time jobs at $7.50/hour, they are still making far less than they were when making $30,000 a year plus they have additional expenses to travel to and from two jobs, etc.

RR- you have very little understanding of the human condition or of much that takes place in the real world.

You sit at your job each and every day (other than at lunch time) doing NOTHING other than being on Topix.

Just because YOU got yourself a good "gig" doesn't mean everyone is as fortunate as you are or has the window of opportunity that you did.

No worries- I don't expect much compassion or understanding from someone who does not think health care is or should be a right but who does think that just dropping dead due to lack of the most basic of health care is not only a right but is perfectly acceptable.

You really are very sickening.

Yep, and I'm married to a Brit, so I have a perspective on that culture as well. But back to the French, I don't think it's so much a animosity between the French and Americans as the French and just about everyone else. On the other hand, interestingly, there is a long-standing mutual admiration between the French and the Japanese. Probably stronger on the Japanese side. They really venerate just about anything French. When I think about it, this makes some sense in that both of those cultures think themselves superior to everyone else. The Japanese much more so than the French in fact. They are famous for their xenophobia.

IDIOT. I made the point that the show was about HETEROSEXUALS masturbating- thereby glorifying HETEROSEXUALITY.

I don't think you know the meaning of the word "glorify"- get back to me when (and if) you do.

I KNOW you're not saying homosexuals are a race, but at the same time you are trying to claim they are not a minority when the FACT is that they are- and you provided info yourself to back up that fact since it is YOU who posted that they represent less than 1% of the population.

That makes them a MINORITY- I am NOT the one who said anything about them being a race- YOU are.

BTW, homosexual masturbation is masturbation done by homosexuals. Heterosexual masturbation is masturbation done by heterosexuals.

And yes- ANY show that shows people having sex or talking about sex or using sexual words and expressions is indeed GLORIFYING sex.

What part of "sex sells" do you not get but which most people- including the ADVERTISERS who pay for those shows DO get?

"Are you NUTS, man? Say they DO take that job at Disney- you gonna step up and feed, house and clothe their children?"

Why the hell would I be responsible to house, clothe & feed their kids?!

That is the responsibility of a parent, not a stranger.

If DisneyWorld isn't paying enough, get a second f_cking job! When I was young & my kids were young, I had to have two jobs to make ends meet.

AGAIN- there's that "charitable" Christian nature of yours just shining through, RR.

And I DID mention a Disney worker taking a second job- learn to read, nimrod.

I have NO nanny-state mentality; however, I DO care about those who are down on their luck through no fault of their own- which IS the case with the MAJORITY of people who collect unemployment benefits.

Those using and milking the system like your worthless brother are in the MINORITY.

What is with YOUR lack of concern or compassion for your fellow man?

"A saying from the Bible's story of Cain and Abel. After Cain had murdered his brother Abel, God asked him where his brother was. Cain answered,“I know not; am I my brother's keeper?”

Cain's words have come to symbolize people's unwillingness to accept responsibility for the welfare of their fellows — their “brothers” in the extended sense of the term.

*******The tradition of Judaism and Christianity is that people do have this responsibility.********

A minority is defined as a group differing, especially in race, religion, or ethnic background, from the majority of a population. Homosexuality isn't a race, isn't an ethnicity & isn't a religion. To define people with a different sexual preference than most people as a "minority" is just pandering to their wants.

WRONG.

mi·nor·i·ty
&#8194; &#8194;[mi-nawr-i-tee,-nor ,-mahy-] Show IPA noun, plural mi·nor·i·ties, adjective
noun
1.the smaller part or number; a number, part, or amount forming less than half of the whole.
2.a smaller party or group opposed to a majority, as in voting or other action.
3.a group differing, especially in race, religion, or ethnic background, from the majority of a population: legislation aimed at providing equal rights for minorities.
4.a member of such a group.
5.the state or period of being under the legal age of full responsibility.

How YOU choose to define "minority" is the THIRD definition in the above- one need not be of a particular race, religion or ethnic background to be part of a minority.

If you're going to provide definitions, have at least the little bit of integrity required to post the FULL definitions and the order in which those definitions are listed.

RR used only a snippet of the definition of the word "minority"- he would rather show us how little integrity he has by not having posted the FULL definition rather than admit he is WRONG.

His fragile ego doesn't allow for him to admit when he was wrong but his lack of ethics and integrity does allow for him to be duplicitous as he was by posting only ONE definition of the word in a pathetic attempt to try and prove himself right.

Such is the lot in life of a very little man such as RR truly is.
