Happily Never After?
New York Times, by Maureen Dowd

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 4/3/2013 2:09:56 PM

I’m worried about the Supreme Court. I’m worried about how the justices can properly debate same-sex marriage when some don’t even seem to realize that most Americans use the word “gay” now instead of “homosexual”; when Chief Justice John Roberts thinks gays are merely concerned with marriage as a desirable “label,” and when Justice Samuel Alito compares gay marriage to cellphones. The Nine are back there in their Miss Havisham lairs mulling, disconcertingly disconnected. In his zeal to scare people about the “possible deleterious effect” of gay parents adopting, Justice Antonin Scalia did not seem fully

Comments:
Deep-thinker Maureen references "Will & Grace" then commits life-long unwavering support for Gay marriage. Meanwhile babies in Philadelphia are being scissored on the doctor´s table. How perverse and sick a worldview? And nobody can be THAT drunk while writing.

If it were up to me we would still use the term "Queer." That´s why the debate is being lost. If we can´t use the proper language, then, we can´t debate properly. If we acquiesce in the language, we´ve lost half the battle.

Which is why, #1, we should use the terms ´sodomite´ and ´lesbian´ to refer to homosexuals.

They, for far too long, have tried to ´sanitize´ the behavior by dictating the language employed.

I thought this was a MoDo free site. OK, I once again tried to read this vacuous ´writer´ without success. Her logic, or lack or it, makes following anything close to a 3rd graders reasoning impossible. No wonder the Slime is in decline with this as an example of one of their best. Perhaps, when one is on their deathbed and the Dali Lama himself has granted on total consciousness, can one understand this vacated ´intellect´s´ writings

If marriage, known throughout history as between one man and one woman, is expanded at all, then it has no meaning or boundaries.

Surely, if it is possible to think of the institution as "evolving," the next step in the change, at least in human history terms, would be marriage between one man and more than one woman.

I see no basis, if marriage is transformed, to stopping it at same sex. The argument for opening marriage to include multiple spouses cannot then be denied.

What a mess.

The debate appears to be about access to government benefits rather than marriage. The government allows gays to enter into marriage contracts, even though it treats them as a private rather than a public contract.

Previous posters are right on. The point is one I have made for years. Lose the battle of terminology, lose the war.

If "gay" = homosexual

then I insist that

"normal" = heterosexual.

Neither is more accurate than the other.

Start fighting back and taking propaganda mills masquerading as "news" outlets to task. Make them really really uncomfortable when they use the neutered terms. Especially supposed "conservative" outlets.

Grunt sends.

When I was young, in my neighborhood they were called Fairies. Then Archie Bunker called them Homos. They have various names over the years, but all of them were fighting words if you called a straight person one of those names! It wasn´t anything to be proud of.

Every state law plus DOMA allow a man to marry a woman. The homosexual is not interested. If the state says, we can offer you a legal union equivalent in every way to a marriage but not called marriage, the homosexual is not interested. Only re-defining marriage is acceptable. This is a power issue not a rights issue. They insist on the power to force a re-defining of the term marriage. It would be interesting if the religions of the world then sued to insist that the states ensure that the word civil marriage is used anytime the marriage is not performed consistent with religious teachings so that you would have Marriage, civil marriage, and common law marriage.

I´m actually for gay marriage but I am sick of it being beaten into us that we MUST accept it. Just do it and let´s move on to more important issues, like saving this country from fiscal ruination.

"Gay" is slang, it is a term that is used now to hide the real meaning of the idea. It used to only mean "cheerful".
"Homosexual" is a proper descriptive term that does not shift meaning over time. The court documents are going to be set in time. They can´t use slang terms.
Modo may be going senile.

Thanks, MD. Maureen must be early French for moron or something. The people whose opinion the MSM care about don´t call it ´gay marriage´, either. For one thing, ´gay´ is too male-centric, and women get equal or favored rank among patho-liberal activists (explaining why they changed GL, then GLB, to LGB, then LGBT). To be scrupulously PC, they call it ´same sex´ marriage.

The ´LGBTQ´ mnemonic really isn´t that hard to figure out (though for the life of me I can´t believe I wasted even one neuron to learn it):

L = lesbian (biologically female drawn to other females)
G = gay (biologically male drawn to other males)
B = bisexual (any combination goes)
T = transgender (male or female using self mutilation to fake being the other sex)
Q = queer or ´questioning´ (essentially any orientation not covered by the other categories)

Voting against Bushes is an act of love
Daily Caller, by W. James Antle III    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 4/18/2014 8:23:53 AM     Post Reply
A popular online dictionary offers four definitions for the word “bushed.” The first is “overgrown with bushes.” The second is “exhausted, tired out.” The third is a Canadian colloquialism meaning “mentally unbalanced as a result of prolonged residence in a sparsely inhabited region.” Each of these definitions seems to describe the Republican Party’s feeling about the Bush family. If that’s not true and the GOP nominates Jeb Bush for president — the third Bush since 1988 — then perhaps the fourth definition applies: “unable to find one’s direction; lost; confused.” There’s a case to be made that George H.W. Bush is an underrated president,

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

Barbara Bush was right when she pooh-poohed son Jeb´s interest in running for the White House in 2016.

Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

WASHINGTON -- Inevitably, considering the absence of a clear Republican frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, the name of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush of the family dynasty has been rushed to the fore. On his record in office and his soft-spoken personal appeal, he would seem a natural to go to the head of a list of only moderately impressive wannabes. But the immediate question is: Do American voters, after a double dose of Bushes, want another one? The fact is that memories of the two George Bush presidencies now set few GOP hearts aflutter.The first George, elected to

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
