Of course you look at it that way. Your on the inside looking out.
"They're here, they're queer and they're here to stay. We get it."
No, I don't think you do get it.
"Is it possible that we can go one week without being forced to think about, see on tv, read about, or listen to fudge packers whining about how oppressed they are?"
I would have to question your entertainment choices, if you find yourself "forced" to "think" about it.
"It's not a human rights struggle."
It isn't for you, that's for sure. But you're not alone in this world, are you?
""Gays" "queers" and the like have been around since the beginning. They're going to get as much as respect as they'll ever get in this country."
No one is asking for YOUR respect. YOU'RE never going to offer it.
But you are going to have to learn to tolerate and accept certain realities if you are to be considered a peaceful member of society.
I'm guessing you have never known someone who is gay, and if you did, any association you may have had with them, ended the minute you became aware of it. I pray, if you have any children, that they don't come to you one day and announce that they are gay.
"What do they want, to replace the Washington Monument with a giant sculpture of a penis? Or, maybe they want the Grand Canyon to be renamed the Le Grand Con, which means The Grand anus in french."
Now you're being ridiculous. You know that no such a thing has been proposed.
Fairmon, it's really not hard to understand why there are tax rate differentials for couples or those with children. You choose to ignore those reasons.
Your quest to equalize tax rates for singles is going to be a long quest, and I'm sure you know that.
Apparently, the financial inequalities don't bother you as much as you claim they do, or you would get hitched and join the vast majority of the nation and enjoy lower tax bills.
Fairmon wrote: "It is not a moral issue but a financial issue wherein gays want to discriminate, along with other marrieds, against singles."
You write this every time the issue comes up, but I seriously doubt that their FIRST concern is tax savings. Most want marriage rights to be recognized for other reasons.
"Gay's are just as selfish and self serving as the married majority."
"The most recent welfare and transfer of wealth program (affordable healthcare act) provides an even greater incentive for gay's to seek the privilege of participating in the blatant discrimination against those preferring to remain single."
But Sir, that is a preference, as you state. Everyone knows that there are savings AND expenses that decrease or increase as a result of marriage.
"Most people, including me, could care less if someone has some queer ideas about sex but don't want to financially subsidize it."
Wouldn't that make you selfish by definition because you prefer to remain single?
"SB-13 and HB-25 (fair tax proposals or consumption tax) are starting to get more attention and support. However neither of my elected elite (republicans all) are among the supporters. My vote will go to anyone pledging to support it if it ever gets to the floor for a vote."
I think you and I both know that we are years away from the Fair Tax being a reality.
"It is the only fair tax proposed by anyone in either party. unfortunately congress could screw it up just as they do most things."
As long as Congress can use the tax system for a game of political football, the Fair Tax will remain on the shelf. It's just reality.
"Houses? You wanna talk about pix of the manor? Really?"
Yeah I do. Google has always had my address matched to the wrong house, and that sh1tbox that you can pivot to was never mine. My place was a half mile down the road. But that's neither here nor there because I no longer live on Manor Lane and haven't for quite sometime.
You're not worth it.
You're a big man behind what you once thought was your little anonymous nickname and now you know you're not anonymous at all.
I will not be drawn into your pathetic world for one more minute.
Keep up the good work on Twitter. You're soon going to bust 10,000 tweets in a matter of six months.
What a milestone that will be.

You're like a child. You post like you're mentality hasn't evolved past the age of 15.
So you know what? I'm going to be the adult here.
I don't think anyone is interested in watching the two of us trade insults any longer, even if it is what you seek. You're nothing but a imbecilic troll.
I've got enough to stroll right up to your front door and speak to you face to face at your home on Clearfield Road SW. You know it and I know it. You know where to find me.
The ball is in your court.
Still want to play?

How's it feel to know that your entire life is spent online, 16 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, because you are utterly alone and have nothing else to do?
It's extremely hard for me to believe that you were once an educator.

Sir, it was not a Seville, it was a Sedan Deville and it's parked underneath your carport of your dilapidated hovel that needed paint a decade ago.
I didn't hire an investigator. I see you tweaked your Facebook page settings overnight. A little too late though.
You really need to do a little tweaking elsewhere on the web, because I can post a picture of your shack for everyone to see, because you are so careless.
Let's see just how far you want to go with this.
I'm definitely game.

I never said there was any such "amendment," but if we were a truly free society, there would be no impediments to gay marriage.
"On a totally unrelated note,I've been away for a while and it looks like you beat that check kiting rap. Good for you."
Whomever you are, and I have my suspicion, I have never bounced a check in my life, thank you very much. My wife did circa 1983 or so.
Astropig wrote: "Gays have the same rights that everybody else has.They seem to want some special ones because they are gay."
Are you truly being serious with that statement?
The right to marry the person of their choice, along with spousal privileges is denied to most gay people, especially here in the South.
What is so special about that? Of course some people find it abnormal, but in a free society, one would think it would be permissible for two people who want to commit their lives to each other, without question or resistance, but we're not there as a society yet, are we?
It will change, even here in the Bible belt. In time religious zealots will no longer be allowed to legislate their chosen moralities on others.
