    Thanks for the post

    I work with young individuals with Autism, Mental Retardation and many other conditions (most have attention deficit and are on RX)

    It boils down to this, most regular kids have a hard time in school. Its not because they can’t pay attention, it’s because they have NO DESIRE to pay attention in public schools.

    Getting your child excited about education, is the parents responsibility. As a parent you have access to the internet, you have access to all the knowledge you could possibly imagine. More knowledge than any other generation that’s ever existed in the History of human civilization – Take full advantage of it.

    If you allow the system (public school) to do your job, they will turn out nothing more than another collectivist brick in the wall

    However it is also my belief that others choosing to live their lives in a different fashion don’t necessarily degradate a society.

    Most of the gay individuals I know lead normal lives, and detest STRONGLY the idiots marching around in pride parades. Parading nothing more than explicit contempt for society. Most of the gay individuals I know have about as much love for those idiots as Christians do for Westboro idiots that picket soldiers funerals. And of course it’s always the loudest jerks that get the most attention, especially from a sensationalist left leaning media.

    I find traditional Christian values to be very respectable, but I also feel there is room for everyone to profess their own values for their own lives. The values a person professes truly is for their own lives. I think everyone can get along just fine, but I HATE to see the party hurt because we’re so stuck in what we feel is right for everyone else, we divide ourselves.

    When we as republicans roll our eyes or condescend other thoughts or points of view, all we really do is cut ourselves off from growing the party. We don’t all have to agree on ALL of the views, the views that are damaging our everyday lives should take priority. I just feel that gays marrying isn’t a priority for me, Its not destroying my life right now like inflation, government intrusion, a stagnant economy, Unaffordable education without mortgaging ones life, or owning a home without mortgaging ones life-Are all Much mor

    My Apologies for the mis-understanding, I was talking Specifically to the point of marriage and nothing more.

    The collectivist statement wasn’t meant as an insult at all, especially not a personal one. I just see too much of in politics (mostly from the left, they are the biggest bunch of hypocrites on the planet. It’s why I’m a conservative) of heavy handedness in peoples views, and the hypocrisy associated with being so dug into one position. (not you in particular I might add, but just in general)

    My only argument with the view that American marriage is that of traditional Christian Marriage (I come from a Christian household) is that it’s just not true. While it may be modeled heavily in that traditional since, the application is not the way the laws are written.

    For instance I believe in Christian marriage It’s adultery to re-marry and there for a second marriage isn’t valid. We know that you can legally re-marry in the U.S. multiple times. While a fundamentalist church or person may not see that second marriage as legitimate, in the eyes of the law it is.

    I advocate for people to do whats best for themselves. I believe that the traditional Christian lifestyle is a model lifestyle. If people can hold themselves to that standard of living (very few can, even those who profess to. Lets face it, God says no one can because we are all imperfect) That standard of living fosters a healthy society. It commands humility and a two parent healthy household. How

    Once Again – Your perception of what is socially acceptable (aka morality) is not what matters. You don’t get to decide whats socially acceptable. Just because the people you surround yourself with believe what you do, that does nothing to invalidate the points of view from other Americans Just like you and all your friends, who believe America has a Differing set of standards of social acceptability.

    Your collectivist B.S. is just that – I live my life of me and for me, I am a sovereign individual and Neither your perception of morality nor anybody else’s perceptions have Any bearing Whatsoever on my life or my decision making. That’s because I have inalienable rights bestowed on me as an American citizen. The collectives “social norms” don’t really exist – because the collective is actually nothing more than a bunch of individuals with far differing opinions from one another. Those individuals get no say in how I exercise these rights, whether they themselves find them socially acceptable or not.

    As for abortion – Anyone getting an abortion after 20 weeks is a psychopath. There are grounds to come together on this issue if people weren’t absurdly stubborn on this issue. If you get it done, get it done VERY EARLY. I don’t care if a fetus can cognize pain or not, it can still feel it – which is cruel and barbaric. This is 2013 – we should be long past barbaric by now

    And please, enough with the petty personal insults

  • July 4, 2013 at 2:53pm

    “That’s exactly the kind of morality that comes from people determining for themselves what is right or wrong”

    Like it or not, that IS morality. You don’t have the luxury of projecting your visions of morality on other people. You live your life how you see fit, you don’t get to live mine for me.

    I know you think the worlds going to come crashing down if people believe they are the arbiters of their own lives, but it’s the foundation this country was built upon. Your life won’t change one little bit if someone you’ve never met marries who they want.

  • July 4, 2013 at 2:42pm

    So what your saying is it’s hypocritical for conservatives to advocate for a small federal government to stay out of our lives. But at the same time grant them the legal power to break our doors down, shove rifles in the faces of our children, kill our pets and steal our property and money – because they “think” there “might” be some kind of plant in the house?

    Interesting…

  • July 4, 2013 at 2:32pm

    @ You are entitled

    You don’t know a thing about me if you think I’m some Maoist or communist. My little red book analogy corralates with the republican power structure that has used the same emotional brainwashing tactics that communists use to keep the “regulars” in our party constantly p*ssed and arguing about irrelevant things.

    We are so far stuck in our own past that we can’t even put out a positive message, all I hear from republicans is whining about how bad things are for them (us)

    could it be that some Billionair bought and paid for candidate for the republicans has NO CLUE whats on the minds of the young generation???

    Give me ONE good reason that a young person should have voted for Romney? What was his message to us (other than to condescend us)

    So long as young liberty leaning conservatives are spit on and dismissed, no republican will ever hold presidential office. These “kids” aren’t Kids, they are Adults, with VOTES. They can smell hypocrisy and B.S. from ten country miles away. The Republican establishment laughed them off, so we didn’t vote for your candidate.

    Don”t like that??? Tough.

    Perhaps next election cycle the youth that will be carrying this party into the future will get a little more respect. If you can’t so much as respect our ideas, why should we even respect you at all let alone vote for your farce of a candidate who never even WANTED to run for president??

    Hopefully the lesson was learned

    Copper Tops non the less. The Lending “business” makes millions of Americans ACTUAL Indentured Servants in our own country.

    Before I get some negative flack ( I hope I get some feed back from this post, lets talk about this crap guys and gals) I realize that the aid is Military aid.

    Last time I Checked my pay check PAYS FOR THOSE DAMNED TANKS AND JETS – and I don’t Expect my Money to be GIVEN AWAY to those who want us destroyed on a fundamental level.

    This is why the Military needs to be scaled back to a quick strike, agile force with overwhelming conventional (and Non) war fighting capabilities. If that Country wants and envy’s the Tanks who’s creation helped come from the sweat off my back, THEY CAN BUY THEM!

    American Military Doctrine should maintain a defensive posture, with the implicit guarantee that any direct attack on Americans or their institutions will result in a reciprocal attack involving a magnitude of destruction at least 1000 times greater than that of the attack initiated against U.S. Interest’s.

    Other than that we are NOT putting our boots on the ground in some sandbox, we are NOT re-building your infrastructure. We are NOT going to engage in Dollar diplomacy, paying other countries for their support or to keep them from doing things we don’t care for (like forcing presidential planes to not fly over allied air space, we are not ******* Thugs)

    Never again should we allow OUR Government to rob Peter (us) to pay Paul (the world off)

  • July 4, 2013 at 1:59pm

    ” because under U.S. law, the government is not permitted to provide financial aid to a country where the military has overthrown a democratically-elected government”

    Tell that to South Vietnam (if It still existed)

    Here’s a question – If the Mighty US Government has over 1 billion dollars to throw around at other countries (thats 1,000,000,000 or 1,000 million) and we only have 300 sum million citizens in the united states – WHY does poverty exist???

    WHY are we being held down to the level of a peasant??

    Off hand math suggests that if that 1.3 Billion with a capital B SENT TO EGYPT ALONE- Were spread equally to American Individual Citizens – It would equal out well over two million dollars U.S. Per Person (Over three to be more accurate)

    Perhaps the 700 billion dollar tarp program would be more accurate in making this point

    I am NOT advocating for communism or socialism, But I DAMN well advocate we take better care of our citizens than we do some psychopathic regime full of Muslim fundamentalists.

    That 600 dollar check you cut us a few years back Barack as “stimulus” doesn’t cut it. There is something SERIOUSLY wrong with the fabric of America and the way it’s been presented to us common people for God knows how long.
    WHAT IF – Americans hard workers all suddenly had 2 million bucks in their savings accounts. Would that dissuade them from DOING the HARD work that RUNS the Country??? We are slaves, well taken care of slaves, but a bunch of co

    “Putting you and your’s into a proper perspective… that would be my game as always.”

    Your “game” seems to be nothing more than incoherent b**ching like some butt hurt child “I’m taking my ball and going home!!”

    You keep doing nothing but putting your closed minded ignorance on display, but you don’t think so of course because you think you can use big words.

    No one needs any perspective to see that ” you and your’s ” have nothing to say but hatefilled, regurgitated 1990′s era Republican Talking points.

    Your just another card carrying republican with no integrity, I bet you’ve got your little red book of talking points in your front shirt pocket.

    Clinging to hate and fingerpointing – are you tried and true in blaming everyone for the GOP losses except where the blame lies the most?

    Are you washed in the blood of republican hypocrisy? It’s all in the light for everyone to see

    Same thing in a different time by a different name.

    We pay off dictators to be our puppet masters and control their people – to be our “allies”

    Dollar Diplomacy

    They STEAL the SWEAT from our WORKING CLASS BACK’S to pay off tyrants all over the world, in the namesake of stability.

    I hope the world continues to spit in our face, until we are FORCED to elect officials who will cut off their precious aid

  • June 30, 2013 at 3:13pm

    So Arabs didn’t dedicate America for attack for the first 200 plus years of existence, they just conveniently, out of the blue…… Just because they can……. began attacking us for no reason?

    Yeah, that stands up to some seriously insightful logic there. How many brainwashing seminars did it take to convince the people this non-sense

    I mean my God, did Tsarneav not EXPLICITLY STATE they hatched the plot because of the number of Iraqi’s killed in that conflict??? Iraqi’s that our own US government projects to be (in leaked classified estimates) as over 109,032 deaths including 66,081 civilian deaths.

    Guess what, TWO THIRDS OF THOSE KILLED BY OUR OWN ESTIMATE WERE CIVILIANS

    Keep standing in your own ignorance of why people hate us. It was all so Rumsfeld could get his pentagon pals in the military contracting business LOTS OF CASH$$$$

    Randomousity made the point, the Valid point.

    The Equal Protection Clause, part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, provides that “no state shall … deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    While Random spoke of equal protection for couples, the true concept is for the individual. If an individual has the right to marry another individual, the State CANNOT discriminate against them in any fashion.

    If your argument is traditional couples should only get federal benefits, and gay couples should not. Its flawed and unconstitutional, plain and simple

    Now if you want to petition the government that NO couples should get benefits. Thats perfectly fine as well.

    As a conservative libertarian it’s my personal view that the government never should have had it’s nose in Marriage in the first place. Conservatives want small, unobtrusive government. Yet the Conservatives INSISTED on keeping the government in Marriage. The GOP is getting a taste of some Very strong medicine right now, and deservedly so.

    If you believe in small government, then we as republicans should have stood on principal and kept the government out of marriage. Marriage is between two people, God and their Church – NO ONE else.

    Instead we stood on greed, and placed unconstitutional laws into place. We could have looked like the good guys on this issue, if only we had stood on the most basic of Republican principals – smaller go

    “It is what it is. If they’re not guilty, they’re not guilty. If they’re guilty, they’ve got to face the consequences,”
    No no no – HERE’S what it is

    If they’re guilty they face the consequences, if they are Not guilty YOU FACE THE CONSEQUENCES for being absurdly overly physically intrusive on a MISDEMEANOR CHARGE.

    Your telling me with all our technology, Theres NO WAY we could strap someone to a bed like that, put a plastic breathing mask over their face, and get a reading of the alcohol content in their blood??? You do that option first anyway when someone says yes they will do it.

    You could find a better way, because this is gestapo ********

  • June 28, 2013 at 10:31pm

    So I guess as a republican you only wan’t smaller government intrusion when it doesn’t inconvenience you?

    Guess what – these kinds of abuses can happen to you no matter how rational you may attempt to sound to a cop. When you give them this power, it gets abused.

    You also won’t be sounding so rational when you blow your top because your being railroaded

    Government officials and Employers have NO RIGHT to a person’s bodily fluid – Period. What kind of a sick **** thinks its “ok” for your boss to fondle your piss or blood??? What America DO we live in, because it sure isn’t the America anyone fleeing an oppressive, tyrannical government would have advocated for.

  • June 28, 2013 at 10:05pm

    So long as Republicans sit around in a big circle, talking about the Mexican problem. About how we are going to do away with 11 million people who ARE here, have BEEN here for decades, and AREN”T going Anywhere!

    Any Illegal in this country wont be able to vote for at the VERY MINIMUM FIFTEEN YEARS from now. And Anyone who goes through that long and arduous of process DESERVES to be able to vote. Hell, If you can’t pass an immigration exam YOU shouldn’t be able to vote (Not really, but the point being those exams are DAMN difficult. Anyone who passes a citizenship exam is better versed in American History than 9 tenths of American population)

    The Changes that have happened in America since Reagen’s “Amnesty” have had NOTHING to do with the illegals that have moved here since. They have had NO SAY, they will continue to have NO SAY for fifteen years, lest they can maneuver their way through this long and drawn out process in the bill. My bet is the vast majority won’t, and the ones that DO. Those are the people you WANT as your friends and neighbors.

    Secure the funding for the fence, Secure the border. Sign the Bill and Move the Hell On. We look like FOOLS standing around acting as though Tough Rhetoric can uproot 11 million people (most of whom are deeply woven into the family’s of True Blue Born here Americans)
