Burger King diner defeats would-be robber by shooting him
A father who was trying to eat with his family at Burger King was able to defeat an armed robber by pulling his own weapon and shooting at him, Miami police said.
It was at the height of lunch time, about 1 p.m., when a would-be robber walked into a Burger King, flashed his gun at one of the family diners, and demanded the diner fork over money and valuables, police said in a CBS report. The robber was exiting when the father, who feared for his and his family’s life, CBS said, took out his own gun and shot the suspect in the leg.

If we had more of this from our citizens, criminals would not find it so easily to rob and kill.

The prisons need to be overhaul and America needs to resort back to when there were no computers, no legal library, no televisions, no lawsuits and appeals for prisoners who are disatisfied with their peanut butter, no sports arena for recreation and no payment for working for their room and board. Instead, give them the punishment they thrived and worked to obtain. Put them on a chain gang. Basic meals of bean soup and bread.

Them maybe, the prisons won't be so appealing and enticing, encouraging the feloners to commit crime in order to be incarcerated and put in their spas and condos.

This is harshly put but this is what is needed today in order to bring law and justice not tax payers paying for lawyers and their criminal clients.

GOP rep’s son: CNN and MSNBC canceled my interviews when I refused to bash my dad

An amazing catch from BuzzFeed. Remember Matt Salmon? Republican, congressman, strong social conservative, opponent of gay marriage — and father of a gay son. I wrote about him last week as a counterpoint to Rob Portman, to show how opponents of SSM with gay family members deal with this issue differently. Salmon hasn’t flipped like Portman did but he does have warm words about his son. Turns out the son has warm words for his father too.

That's right DP, close your eyes, bury your head in your hands and chant "not there, not there".
I'm legally married to a man (have the marriage certificate to prove it) and federal recognition is just around the corner.
Not a dam* thing you can do about it either.
For such a "smart guy" you say some really dumb things.
How many men abandon their wives and children under the guise of "I just discovered I was gay"? What were they when they were making those children? They were tired of working their backs off only to give their whole paychecks away to a woman and her children only to be nagged to death all the time so they started hanging out with their buddies and decided that it's much easier not having a family and all those responsibilities so they claim to be "gay" so that society doesn't call them out for being the disgusting dead beats that they are. Then they have the nerve to want to claim their buddy as a spouse for the tax advantages and federal benefits? Not in my world! Not in my world!

Christians Demonized as Extremists

Published on Apr 8, 2013

Are evangelical Christians rapidly becoming one of the most hated minorities in America? Once upon a time such a notion would have been unthinkable, but these days things are changing dramatically. All over the United States, evangelical Christians are being called "extremists" and evangelical Christian organizations are being labeled as "hate groups". In fact, as I will detail later on in this article, a U.S. Army Reserve training presentation recently specifically identified evangelical Christians as "religious extremists". This should be extremely chilling for all evangelical Christians out there, because as history has shown us over and over again, when you want to persecute a particular group of people the first step is always to demonize them. And that is exactly what is being done to evangelical Christians today. Just look at how evangelical Christians are being portrayed on television and in the movies. Just look at how much hate is being spewed at Christians on the Internet. The Southern Poverty Law Center and the ACLU, both of which are considered to be among the most prominent "civil rights" organizations in the United States, are seemingly obsessed with attacking evangelical Christians. It has become trendy to bash Christians, and that is a very frightening thing. After they have finished demonizing evangelical Christians, what will the next step be?

"Not in my world! Not in my world!"

I hate to be the one to break this to ya DP, but it's not your world and just between the two of us, you're starting to sound a little hysterical.

As far as your ridiculous scenario...

There are a lot of gay men that have been raised in families, communities and religious traditions that make it very difficult to reach the point where they can first admit, then accept and later be at peace with the fact that they are gay.

The pressure to "be what you are supposed to be" can be tremendous and many men have ended up getting married and trying to force themselves to "be straight", but it never works.

It's a real tragedy when a family breaks up, but it can happen for all kinds of reason and this is just one of them, but to honest I don't know of a single instance when a man has decided he just didn't want to be married, pretended he was gay and married a man.

Being gay doesn't protect you from paying child support or any of the other financial responsibilities that any other man that gets divorced would face. The fact that you think it does reveals a whole new level of ignorance I hadn't even imagined existed and (as a general rule) STRAIGHT MEN DON'T MARRY OTHER MEN...they get married to another woman and start the whole cycle of misery all over again.

Imagine how much better things would be if every young gay person grew up in a situation where they knew it was okay to just be who they are. If they didn't feel they had to hate themselves for being "different", they didn't have to fear losing their families, their friends, being rejected by their community or being physically and verbally attacked by people like you just because they are gay.

Imagine how much better it would be for everyone involved.

That's the world I've spent most of my adult life working toward DP.

That's my world and frankly I don't care if you're part of it or not.

I can be just as sure as YOU are, but I've known and know gay people. And everyone of them is quite happy and content with who they are, and they don't try to deal with as best they can like you suggested.

You know NOTHING about me, except what you've concocted in your own small, hateful mind. Stay on topic. It's NOT me.

OMG! Funny, I've known men who were married to women and children, then came out and they were very good fathers and provided for their ex-wife and children without hesitation or complaint.

You seem to have some very hateful and biased opinions about gay men. Now you're trying to stereotype those that were married as "dead beats?"

Like I've said before, it's personal with you and it's getting more apparent. Your anger is a dead giveaway.

GOP rep’s son: CNN and MSNBC canceled my interviews when I refused to bash my dad
APRIL 8, 2013

An amazing catch from BuzzFeed. Remember Matt Salmon? Republican, congressman, strong social conservative, opponent of gay marriage — and father of a gay son. I wrote about him last week as a counterpoint to Rob Portman, to show how opponents of SSM with gay family members deal with this issue differently. Salmon hasn’t flipped like Portman did but he does have warm words about his son. Turns out the son has warm words for his father too.
....
>>>-->> “He doesn't see it as not allowing his son to be with the person he loves because he knows that regardless of where marriage is, I’m going to be with the person that I love,” the son told The Washington Blade.“Whether I can legally marry in Arizona or not, it’s not going to change that fact and my father knows that and he accepts my desire to be with the man that I love.

To him, marriage is defined as between a man and a woman.

It has nothing to do with the way he views a person’s relationship, and that’s the thing that I think is hard for people to understand.”<<---< <<
