    Proverbs says its so – so…
    It MUST be.

    So TheBlaze, FOX, The Wall Street Journal … ALL such media now is but tabloid ‘reporting’ with a narrative – eh Proverbs?
    I suppose we can / should just close-up all Journalism schools then
    Go home kids. Nothing to report here.

    BRILLIANT observation Monk-Man!
    Ed reports that ‘Hillary has work to do in Iowa’ and… Monk reports / echos that.
    Good job Monk. Your insight into cutting edge reporting is incredible.

    Why don’t you go back to telling us how the White House is “blackmailing and [making] threats to silence Menendez”.
    Now THAT’S a good one. Some real investigative reporting required there.
    Sure you have proof to back that one up – right?
    I’m sure you’ll be able to offer reason as to WHY folks should dismiss a 76-count Medicare fraud scheme indictment on the Florida doctor charged in the corruption case with Menendez – right?

    Or could you please expound on the soft spoken Hitler Obama and how he is “teaming up” with terrorists?
    More cutting edge reporting needed there.
    (Hey. I thought Obama was a slave plantation master. What? Now he’s Hitler. Could you please make up your mind so your followers could make up theirs.)

    SpeakSoftlyAndCarry: “We also all know whos’ playing the “dog” in this show.”

    And we now know who that dog is leaving her scatology behind on.
    With stories and comments like this many of you folks look but like the dog’s dumping place.

    Seriously folks?
    This is the level of ‘dirt’ you have to go down to to find / give an attempted negative story about Hillary?

    OF COURSE a meeting like this one is planned out by the Clinton team.
    My goodness. No one is that ignorant to think otherwise – right.
    AND BECAUSE… “We were asked to come to a meeting with Troy, the three of us, at the Village Inn,” he told the Daily Mail. ‘It was supposed to be a strategy meeting…then all of a sudden he says, ‘Hey, we have Secretary Clinton coming in, would you like to go meet her?’” – that shows that FOR THE INVITEES – THEY did NOT know they would be meeting with Hillary and so for THEM the meeting WAS unscripted.

    Just because someone they are described as “three “everyday” Iowans” does not mean thy are not. Just because they were invited – unknowingly meeting Hillary – does NOT exclude them from being “three “everyday” Iowans”.

    WOW!
    You folks who are out to discredit Hillary…
    I sure hope you can do better than this. Because with stories like this… It just shows how little you folks have on here then.

    Good luck Cruz, Paul, Rubio, etc. You folks are REALLY gonna need it if this is the best your base can do.

    What are you talking about?
    I ask you why you won’t comment on the actual content of my post and you respond by STILL NOT talking about the actual content of my post AND… You TRY to accuse me of “NEVER give that exact same courtesy (read and UNDERSTAND) to the rest of us” – when IF you actually read my comments you would see I ALWAYS give others the opportunity to comment.
    I ALWAYS at least TRY to ask WHY someone believes the way they do so that I MIGHT TRY to understand their positions.

    Seems to me on the issue of gay equality… Many on the Right are UNABLE to explain WHY they are intolerant to gays / WHY they seek to deny loving, committed gay couples the right to marry who they wish. About the only response I ever get back is: ‘Because my god beliefs tell me to (be intolerant)’ – or… Marriage is between a man and a woman.
    Sorry but… FOR ME.. Those reasons fail.
    Anyone can say their god beliefs tell them to believe and do something. Look at radical killers using that excuse.
    At the very least… It would be wonderful if someone could actually offer any ‘proof’ that granting gays full equality in our society is detrimental or harmful to them or our society. Because otherwise… I see NO legitimate reason why these American citizens should not share in the same full liberties and freedoms as every other American.

    Why are you so afraid to discuss the actual content of my posts?

    Do you feel better trying top belittle another (because you may disagree with their views)?

    No reall call for the ‘attitude’.
    It doesn’t help the discussion / cause any.
    (And that cause is EQUALITY. At least for me. Others may tell you its some sort of ‘gay agenda’.)

    So what makes you a / the expert on this matter?
    Are you professional trained in biology? Psychology?
    If not… How many homosexuals have you had extensive conversations with (so as to be able to come to this definitive conclusion of yours)?

    I love when folks start out with: “Here’s the deal”
    Such righteousness.
    (Actually. I should be ‘careful. I sometimes present my beliefs / opinion in a similar fashion. Anyway…)

    ‘Let’s take the Spartans for example …’
    So are you an expert on Spartan history / culture too?

    Ahhhhh… A “suitable” wife.
    For some, some things never change – eh?

    Please explain how someone never exposed to ‘the gay lifestyle’ would then be ‘challenged’ by indecision about their own orientation?
    Even in the most repressive / anti-gay societies… Homosexuality exists.

    Tiny bit of success?
    Define “tiny” please.

    I never said they ARE “just as effective”.
    CAN be!
    IDEALLY a loving, caring, competent mother AND father – with all the other ‘good’ characterisitcs in the home / family – is, again… The ideal.
    But we don’t live in an ideal world – do we?
    And so should our govt seek to repress / stop what we PERSONALLY INTERPRET as taking away from the ideal?

    Sorry but I feel you have offered me nothing as to why I should oppose / seek to stop two loving, comiitted people from marrying / raising children.
    I believe they should have every opportunity to make an IDEAL environment – using the love they share (and perhaps love for their children).

    LOTS of people die – DIRECTLY from the choices they make. ALL different kinds of choices.
    So what’s your point?

    Spoken like a truly righteous individual.

    Though PERHAPS still a BRILLIANT observation – though I would change it a bit.
    Only intolerant, dismissive, righteous god/religious zealots refuse to take responsibility for how their choices affect their lives AND the lives of others and how it makes them feel deep down inside – so they try to force society to affirm their beliefs and choices AND force those same choices and beliefs on all others – at any cost to society as a whole!

    If you think about it…
    ‘god’ is either a very flawed creator or… a ‘mean’ one.
    The Supreme Being either is NOT ‘perfect’ and created his ‘top-most’ living being (humans – and actually, all creatures and the environment we live in) with MAJOR flaws – Pick any sin and then a whole bunch of other flaws of ours – and the creatures we live with – AND the environment ‘He’ placed us in… Earthquakes / Tsunamis / Volcanoes / Drought / and so much more – OR…
    The Supreme Being INTENTIONALLY – what being all-knowing / ALL-everything after-all, right? – so… ‘He’ either created terribly flawed humans (and other creatures and the environment) or ‘He’ intentionally made us all with such flaws as some sort of sick ‘test’ or sick ‘joke’ so as to watch us as we torment ourselves and each other with god-induced personal interpretations of what ‘He’ wants.

    As for Satan…
    What ALL-powerful supreme being allows a Satan-type character to exist?
    Just DESTROY Satan – eh god?

    Not really liking how you worded “it comes down to biology and that the hormone imbalance or something in the brain is different and mutated do make a gay person have same sex attraction.”
    Mutated?
    Don’t know if I’d call it mutated.
    Except for death.. I don’t believe there really is anything we ALL EXACTLY ‘share the same’. And that applies to all living creatures.
    To me there is just ‘natural variance’ – due to large number of scale. And just with some things there’s more ‘variance’ – with others… less

    Type of response expected from foo
    Yup

    It is so apparent you are a very frightened individual foo. Afraid of that which you are so unwilling to even TRY and understand.
    Seek help.

    There you go again with your very apparent obsession with male-on-male sex.
    Kind of makes one wonder….

    tltaylor76: “Homosexuality is wrong”
    So says you and some others.

    “if you research, you will learn that there are 7 signs to the destruction and fall of a civilization. The 7th sign before the fall has always been the common acceptance of homosexuality. This isn’t an opinion, nor can it be called a coincidence.”
    Oh yes it IS opinion. But personal interpretation of whatever it is you are interpreting – the bible or whatever.
    Amazing…
    You phrase: Homosexuality – The destruction and fall of a civilization – and coincidence… All together.
    Amazing!

    This matter effects me personally.
    I have a WONDERFUL niece who this summer is marrying her WONDERFUL partner.
    I have a great family friend who’s Eagle Scout son is gay.

    I also see the valuing of human equality as a cornerstone for assessing / valuing people.
    I have very few ‘real’ friends who are intolerant of gays. That that are… I would not consider real friends. Because often – almost always… If they are intolerant of gays… Such is such a solid indicator of how they too often otherwise treat people / an indicator of many of their other values.
    And let me tell you…
    I know of NO ONE personally like the people I converse with here.
    NO ONE I know personally is as ignorant and intolerant as some I have ‘met’ posting here.
    If I did met any of you such folks personally… I can almost guarantee it would be a one-time meeting as I would have no desire to dorm a relationship with you.

    tltaylor76
    I am at GREAT peace with myself. (And most all others)

    “Your negative and spewing approach will win you nothing.”
    MY negative and spewing approach? You are joking – right? You’ve read the intolerance and outright hatred of some of the others who post here – right?
    And “win” what?
    I’m not out to “win” anything.
    And I’m really not out to change anyone – except myself.
    And since NONE of you who spew your intolerance against gays (and others) canb effectively explain WHY you do so… I don’t see myself changing (back) to those intolerant beliefs.

    You are but an utter failure

    So tell me what freedoms and liberties YOU have lost.
    Specifics please.

    You are assuming every gay person / gay couple engages in sex.
    They do not!
    “You can play in the poo …” “poo-poo pokers”
    What is it with some of you people and your childish ‘fetish’ of having to visual ALL gay relationships as male-on-male intercourse? (See my post to foo below)

    “NOBODY is born with a desire to engage in the nastiness that gays engage in.”
    And you know this HOW / WHY?
    Please support such a contention.

    “the unnatural urges that they are feeling”
    If they are (naturally) feeling such then how can they be “unnatural”?!?!?

    Your arguments FAIL totally.

    Some admit it is a choice…
    GREAT!
    Other do not!

    Ask a young adult / child even – who is struggling with understanding / coming to terms with their sexual orientation… Ask those young folks who most certainly believe that they have NO choice in what their orientation is…
    Ask them when they are being ‘attacked’ by their peers, their supposed friends, much of society, even their own family…
    Ask THEM if they believe it is but a choice.

    Just look at the high suicide rate among those so seriously challenged by supposedly CHOOSING their sexual orientation!
    Wouldn’t it be SO MUCH easier if they JUST CHOSE to go along with what is ‘the norm’? SO WHY would they / WHY would such young folks put themselves through such agony – agony to the point of taking your own life is the ‘better’ alternative?!?!?!

    Did YOU choose to be heterosexual???
    Just because you KNOW you can choose to engage in a homosexual relationship IF you wanted… You equate that with an ‘overall’, life-long sexual orientation that you obviously can’t understand / comprehend.

    “doesn’t mean you can go around and marry whomever you desire”
    WHY not?!?!?!

    “the most stable household”
    SO WHAT?!?!?
    Most stable
    And what of the VERY unstable heterosexual households?
    And what of the VERY stable single parent households?
    And what of the VERY stable gay households?

    Your logic is dumbfounding. In fact… It’s not logic.
    You simply seek to pick-n-chose what you want to focus on and ignore the rest.

  • [-8] April 15, 2015 at 10:17am

    foo
    The ignorance of your statement is astounding – even for you.
    So you focus on the AIDS part because… WHY? Cause you think such is a gay-only infliction? Such a focus will make the father look bad?

    You apparently do not realize that most folks would understand in reading this story that…
    The man OBVIOUSLY HAD a sexual relationship with a woman in that such resulted in the birth of Miss Stefanowicz.
    And then the story – right out of the gate actually – offers: “A woman who was raised by a gay father …”

    And here you are… TRYING to ‘discredit’ the man by simply trying to have folks focus on the fact that he died of AIDS. And do so with your childish “muddy track” reference.
    I bet you are one of those kind of fellas who belittle male gays but get off on seeing (‘good-looking’) female gays / BIs ‘do it’.
    Come on now foo. You can admit it.

    And what foo… Heterosexuals can’t / don’t pass (sometimes deadly) sexually transmitted inflictions? And what foo… Some heterosexuals don’t enjoy a little “muddy track” action once in a while.
    Maybe even you have foo – eh?

    You are so pitiful foo
