Civil Unions - Granite City, IL

I don't understand why the terminology has to matter really. Whether you are "married " or have a "civil union" you are still recognized as a legally bonded couple with all rights granted under this union. Enough is enough already. I am "married " and am straight, however, we did not perform a religious ceremony, have it in a church, or married by a preacher; therefore we had a civil ceremony, not a marriage. BUT, we are still legally married. So I say again, a legal union is clearly good enough. :)  (Aug 4, 2012 | post #2)

Is Williams Township "Government" corrupt?

What do the citizens of Williams Township not know about their "Government " officials? This "Good ol' Boy" system is in effect and it's the people that suffer from it. Anyone have a story to share?  (Jul 26, 2012 | post #1)

Brilliant! This is exactly what these haters need. Preaching about hate and perversion, all the while lacking any intelligence to the matter. If you disagree with gay mariiage this is your righ. However, in order o make a wise decision you ave to be tolerant of the many other views around you or else you have based your decision on mothing that can be merited. It's amazing to me how many ignorant people there are today. Thank you for providing this information as the facts of this research cannot be tuened. Face the acts haters, you lose!  (Jul 26, 2012 | post #34824)

You have still yet to answer any question with an intelligent response. You keep avoiding the very subject you are presenting when someone replies to you. Bashing the people on here will get you no where. It's ok to disagree, you have that right. But at least be intelligent about why you fele that way and the only way to be more wise in your decision making is to be tolerant of others and with an open mind try to understand their point of view as well. You do not follow your own adivice of 'simplistic form of morality'. It's quite ironic. Many straight couples participate in anal sex, allowing gay marriage will not stop this act. Maybe you should petition the porn indistry if this is your true concern. In fact, if you were intelligent in your research of this subject you would know that there are many gay couples that do not partiicpate in anal sex..this is a stereotype. Just because someone is gay does not mean this is how they have to be itimate. Besides, the intimacy of another couple is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. What they do in their own intimacy practice should never be your business. I'd be damned if my private intimate life was any of your business. It's obvious that you have a great personal bias against gays and this is the reason you oppose it. You have not made an intelligent decision nor have the research to back it up. If you did, it would be easier to accept. As I said, it's okay to disagree, but not ok to discriminate. Keep repeating your 'gay twirl' remarks all you want. Nothing you have said is substantial or merits any credit.  (Jul 26, 2012 | post #34823)

Another Tragedy In Granite City

Children should be taught about guns. The more they know the safer they are around them. Guns are not th eproblem, people are. These children should know to never touch a gun first of all, to never point it at anything they are not willing to shoot, etc. My children are versed in gun safety and I know I do not need to worry about them while I have a gun in the house. The gun is also kept in a safe place away from children as well. However, denying my right to bear arms is unconstitutional. It doesn;t matter if guns are banned, the bad guys will still acquire them and then what? Us 'regualr' people are stuck with no protection. Great idea! Teach your children, it's that simple!! May this family be wrapped in the arms of God!  (Jul 23, 2012 | post #8)

Again, all problems that stem from men, so should we just haul them all off to an abandoned island for risk of any and everything that can happen in life?? If risks are relavant then we should not be a part of it at all? I'm pretty sure that introducing women into the military has created more positives than negatives. Our Government has had many leaders that have come out as gay. Does this make them any less of a leader? No. Males and females may not share a bunk bed in service, but they do share barracks and even the same floor and rec rooms. When we do bivouac we are still coed, share the same hole, etc. I have a female soldier in my platoon that I just learned is a lesbian. Did I know before? Nope. Did it matter after? Nope. It changes nothing. She is just as likely as anyone else to "flirt" with another soldier. However, it is the straight men that cause most of the issues so I say again, maybe we should just get rid of all of them? Nothing you have said is substantial to gay marriage at this point and yet you continue to grasp, it's not working.  (Jul 23, 2012 | post #34717)

I'm assuming by your reply that you take the Bible literally at all times and never pick and choose what works for you? You never spit on Sunday right? You think women that don't cover their heads should cut thier hair off? You think women should be silemt in church? Do you think Men have more rights than women? It's amazing that if you actually read the bible you would learn there are a lot of changes that even 'bible bangers' have changed to accomodate the way we live now. Many churches celebrate Easter with an egg hunt for the kids, is this in the Bible? No. It is easy to interpret something to what you want it to say. The Bible is a guide book for Christians...not the law. It was written and rewritten by man. Regualer living breathing sinning man. It is not possible that it was written unbiased. Men thought completely different back then and they wrote it this way. I am a Christain and I believe in gay rights. I don't believe I need to interpret what it says here as my God is of love and loves all beings. He knows your gay before you do! Uh oh!!  (Jul 23, 2012 | post #34716)

How does this apply to gays in the military? Are you saying that because a soldier raped another soldier that introducing gays will increase this? Just because someone is gay does not mean they are a sexual deviant and require sex at all times, taking it when they can't get it. It's absurd to compare the two. Most rapist are men, should we do away with men completely just in case they all decide to rape? You obviously have a personal bias against gays and are grasping at whatever you can to put it down. You seem desperate and it appears most on this site see right through it.  (Jul 23, 2012 | post #34714)

Exactly, thank you. People need to do some research before having diarrhea of the mouth. It's personal bias and not intelligent in response. How do they answer to the proof of gay animals? Do they think animals actually made the conscious choice to want to be with the same sex or is it nature and they were born this way? I don't care if it's a choice or if someone was born that way. It's their life to live, not anyone else's. However, I have met plenty of children who are obviously gay. You think they decided it with no prior knowledge to just be that way? No, they are simply being themselves and not afraid to yet.  (Jul 20, 2012 | post #34650)

You are incorrect. They DO allow coed barracks, I am a soldier and live in one. Coed barracks started around 1997 for the US Army. It takes mores rules and regs and eyes and ears but it works. I also gay soldiers here that cause NO issued. The issues caused are straight soldiers and these are only personal biases. Even if the law changes to allow gay marriage there will always be people that don't agree. There are still people that think we should enslave people, that women shouldn't have as many rights, that women have no place in the military, etc. This is simply another historical stepping stone for America that will one day be history as gay citizens earn thier rights. It is unconstitutional to deny them of rights. Time changes everything. Just read a history book. Gay couples are not asking you to attend thier marriage, come over for dinner, or tape thier sex. Therefore, not your business. Worry about your own life and let them love who they love.  (Jul 20, 2012 | post #34649)

I know plenty of people who do not want children and are not gay. Does this mean they are mentally ill? And how do you know what someone elses love is? Were you there to watch them? OMG you're gay! Ew! Gross! lol  (Jul 6, 2012 | post #34454)

Thank you! So is it that they want their union to be called a marriage? If you called it what it is, a Civil Union, would it be a problem then? What is your definition of unhealthy? I am confused on it causing a dead end. If the entire population were same sex relationships then ok I can see that being a possibility, however, this would never be the case. If anything we have too many people in the world as it is. I can't comment on the religious factor because that's determined on a personal belief and fortunately in AMerica we have separation of church and state. But to say that we would violate historic practice is false. If you research a time in history concerning the Romans you may be shocked to learn a few things. Do you feel that a parentless child will be better off than one who has a loving parent to raise them? Or that a child raised by an adopted parent is worse off than one that has their natural parent? Thanks for the discussion!  (Jul 6, 2012 | post #34453)

4th Grade Teacher at Wilson Elem School busted for Herion?

LOL another person so uneducated they think nurses are CNAs. If you had any clue what kind of training and school these nurses go through you wouldn't question the credibility of their advice, and no I am not a nurse, I am educated. Most nurses do the work of a doctor but without the pay. Most doctors wouldn't have a clue about half the stuff they "handle" if it wasn't for their nurses. Let me guess, you worked hard on your education to further yourself in society right? Riiiiiight! LOL  (Jul 6, 2012 | post #956)
