Subtle (very) 'gay moment' in new Disney film generates buzz

I would say the saddle "horn" isn't as subtle, but it is quite a hoot! LOL  (Sunday Mar 5 | post #1)

Two men arrested after reports of a stabbing in Chalk Farm

Yes, confusing. I surmised (perhaps incorrectly) that they stabbed each other.  (Sep 8, 2016 | post #4)

12 years after gay marriage was banned, families reflect ...

From the article: 'The clause urgently inserted into Australian law in August 2004 gently declared: "Marriage means the union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life." ' For life? No divorce in Australia? Indeed there is! 1 in 3 couples get divorced. Average length of marriage: 12 years. http://mccrindle.c om.au/the-mccrindl e-blog/marriages-i n-australia Perhaps the law should be amended to read: "Marriage means the union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, however long or short that marriage may last."  (Aug 12, 2016 | post #1)

Gay marriage victory at Supreme Court triggering backlash

Seems to me that it is not the transgendered folks that "the fearful people" have to worry about in bathrooms. They should be worried about the heterosexual-creep y men who want to peep at women and girls.  (May 29, 2016 | post #5)

Los Angeles father charged with killing son for being gay

I thought you were a dyed-in-the-wool Libertarian; or, so you always claimed. You're changing your affiliation, ay? Why-oh-why would you want to vote for Cruz? Oh...I guess you're a tea-party fan too, right? Brush up on your Dr. Seuss. ;-)  (Apr 3, 2016 | post #12)

Obamaniac Wants 18% Pay Raise for Himself After Leaving O...

Drugs? LOL. Well, I've had a couple of nips of Irish Whiskey to celebrate the Green. Otherise, yes, I agree with you completely about presidential millionairs. My objection to your original post was to point out your implication (in the thread title) that Obama would be the sole beneficiary of the appropriation (Pay Raise from Himself), when this sort of shenanigans has been going on since 1958.  (Mar 18, 2016 | post #5)

Obamaniac Wants 18% Pay Raise for Himself After Leaving O...

To be fair, the appropriation is for ALL living Presidents, including Papa Bush and Baby Bush. But it is fascinating why former Presidents George W. and Bill Clinton need office space that costs $434 ,000 and $429,000 per year respectively. (There are 5 bed/5 bath units in the Upper West Side NYC that cost significantly less than that.)  (Mar 18, 2016 | post #2)

Dems want J. Edgar Hoover's name off FBI headquarters

Actually Mt. Mitchell in N.C. is the highest peak in the eastern U.S., and beats Mt. Washington by about 400 feet.  (Oct 31, 2015 | post #105)
