OK, answer me this: What if your Dad, or Son, or Mom or Sister came to you, and told you that after five or ten years or longer of hiding who they are, that they now have to tell you that they are "GA Y". Or your best friend. Or a work mate that you have known for years. These are folks you have known for years. You went to Church together, grew up together. Family. And if they one day walk up to you and confide in you and tell you that they feel that ever since they can remember, that they have an irresistible attraction to the opposite se x.
Simple question: WOULD YOU LOVE THEM ANY LESS?
Are they not still the same person that you have known and loved and trusted throughout they years?

Mr. Nimrod Coy, go take a trip down to Texas. Yes, I know you hate that word, Texas. TEXAS! But they have an unbelievable cranking kicking economy, it's jamming. Best in the Nation. And they did it all mostly without stinking unions, they love their State and they love life down there. They have the "Right To Work". Simply look at their example. Open your eyes. In spite of the illegal aliens, somehow they are extremely prosperous. Stick that in your Missouri corn-cob pipe and smoke it, Mr. Coy. If you want to see a great UNION city, look at all the Democrat-run Union-run cities,...hummmmm, OK, Detroit comes to mind,...(Thanks to the UAW and IBEW and Teamsters,...etc...) for the war zone loser town of Detroit. Wake up. Your Union Democrat mentality is what has helped to kill our once great Country.5 months ago
The problem is simple: There are a lot of really stupid (uninformed) people that vote. And they outnumber the rest of us. Sorry, but that's the country we now live in. It's not the same country that I grew up in. Nowadays some folks think that being "successful" means that you are a bad person, and you should not be able to keep all that money. It's not your money, you need to spread your money around to help everyone. That's pretty much the union mentality, and there are a lot of people who belong to unions who vote as the union tells them. It's not un-American, but it's anti-America. It's against everything that made this country great. We are going to continue to be mediocre at best. Thanks to public schools and unions and welfare mothers etc. 5 months ago
really? are you kidding me? I respectfully disagree sir, there is not a "considerable" amount of episodes occurring everyday of drivers not yielding to the right of way there. Quite the contrary I would say. I always feel safe at that intersection. I welcome the flashing lights. It beats having to sit mindlessly waiting for nobody until the stupid light changes. It keeps traffic flowing in a good way. I also LOVE the round-about near the high school, fantastic! Again, no stupid time-wasting red light! I feel that most people in this area are very adept with their driving skills. Most people are courteous and yield quite nicely. We need more of the round-abouts. I have never seen a wreck at the Hwy A and Independence Rd you speak of, nope, I've also never even came close to a fender bender there, it seems very safe to me, and I go by there a bunch of times, all the time, so I do not understand why you would have a problem there. I also have not heard of any wrecks or problems at the high school round-about neither. So, I simply disagree with anyone who thinks those intersections are a problem. Seems like common sense to me.6 months ago
I do not have a problem with a cross. So what. I do though have a problem with bigots. People who say they are atheists and cannot stand certain religious folks. And certain "Christian" folks who feel that it's OK to kill queers. It seems to me that we choose within ourselves whether or not to truly accept our fellow humans, whether they be black, atheists, catholic, baptist, gay, muslim, latino, asian, white, pentacostal, homeless, mentally ill, handicap, etcetera, etc....... Why is it so freakin' hard for us as humans to simply choose within ourselves to not be so messed-up that we have to have such disdain towards so many other humans that are so different? Did not Jesus Himself teach that we should accept others and see their worth and potential? You can disagree with someone, but do you as a "Christian" wish that person harm or death? Because they are a murderer? Or gay? Or an atheist? Does not every soul have the potential to come to Christ? Are we not all imperfect and twisted and sinners? 8 months ago
I think it's wonderful. It's so easy. Just keep going to your right. Beats the dang heck out of a stupid red light there. We need more of these. Cuts your time out. How many times have you sat at that light like an idiot waiting for it to turn green? No more. But will someone tell that lady that I saw today who stopped (when there was no traffic coming) that you do not half to stop! Just go! Duh! I always hated that intersection, but now I love it! 9 months ago
Thank you Delores. I have recently spoken with an elderly man who "escaped" Romania back in the day, escaped the communist police state, whole families in the middle of the night, snuck out to be free from the communist oppression. Just the clothes on their back. They made it to America to be Free. Now, he is shocked and saddened, as he explains how Obama and the democrats really want to turn this country into something similar to what he escaped decades ago. Sad. Here is a link to an article about a Russian guy who explains a little of what he sees Obama and the democrats are trying to do here in America: http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/14278 We may be too far gone to stop it, but I still have hope. Interesting how people who have escaped communism see this guy for who he really is. 10 months ago
Hi, wash-mo guy, first of all I'm not sure what you mean by "trolling". I will admit though that republicans have failed horribly. There are way too many milquetoast republicans, republicans who love their power and love big government. Republicans in name only. We need to vote them out. We need republicans who strongly believe in less government control and spending and less federal invasion into our lives. Democrats like obama and the far-left marxists and socialists and communists that the democrat party has turned into are the ones who really REALLY want to limit your internet and snoop on you and tell you what to eat and what car to drive and micro-control your mind, body and spirit. To say about republicans that "The only thing they want to do is limit the internet and tell me how and who I can have sexual intercourse with!" is extremely juvenile in intellect. Wake up America, Romney ain't the best, but he's worlds apart from the America-hating "progressive" communists socialists control-power hungry anti-God anti-personal freedom and anti-personal responsibility democrats running this country into the dirt.10 months ago
Ms. Shaw is right about todays democrat "progressives" being nothing like the JFK party of old. These are far-left zealots who want to "fundamentally transform" this country (obama's own words). Wake up America, we must stop these democrats leftists from destroying our country. I am not a republican,, but I will vote for them come November in order to save our Country. 10 months ago
Sure, you can be a Christian and still vote for democrats. A horribly misguided, uninformed, ignorant of the truth Christian, a Christian that needs to understand that the democrat party has been taken over by far-left "progressives" that want to micro-control your life and make choices for you, and who want to replace your God with the State. Far-left progressive communists and marxists and socialists who hate religion and want you to look to them for everything you need. There are more and more stories of folks who left communists countries, I've personally heard two stories of local people who "escaped" communist (eastern European) countries to immigrate (legally) to America, and they see this obama and these leftists democrat "progressives" slowly working to turn this country into the miserable evil nightmare of a country that they fled. They see the signs and it's sad that so many Americans are so blind. 10 months ago
