  1. Well, this is kind of a problem for me as it presumes the battle for equality for the lgbt community has been won. It has not. At best, we are at halftime.

    However, looking ahead, I suppose they are right that this will be the next front on the culture war. I think my side needs Indy to lead the charge. Nothing like a warrior who had been there, done that.

    I wonder if I can be as tolerant of them as I demand they are tolerant of me and mine. It would be very, very hard for me to do.

    • If women’s rights is an example, even when you might hope more strongly the battle has been won, don’t let your guard down for even an instant! There are those who won’t stop fighting to control others so they can keep the superiority they feel is theirs, and therefore the battle is never won! They’ll bring out Bible verses and try to convince you their battle is in the name of their gawd. What wisdom is there in being judgmental of others, or in trying to play gawd and deliver what they’ve chosen as his judgement, instead of trying to improve yourself?

      I am pleased the LGBT battle is in the open and there seems to be a large number of people who don’t fall among those who battle to keep controlling others!

      Do you think it’s possible that these people who wish to control and treat others as lessors have such total lack of respect for themselves they don’t have a clue how to respect another?

  2. If the evangelinuts aren’t enough to make you hang your head in sadness and shame at what some will do to avoid simply treating all people with the same level of humanity, we have the wealthy who do it their way.

    (from the link): Just when you thought you’d heard it all, something like this makes you realize just how low some people will stoop to show the rest of us that they are entitled and the rest of us are not.

    The New York Post reports that wealthy Manhattan mothers have discovered a great way to cut to the front of the line at Florida’s Disney World. They hire a disabled person, pass that person off as a family member and take advantage of the theme park’s accommodation of handicapped people and their families. Disney allows guests who are wheelchair bound or need a motorized scooter to bring up to six people with them to “a more convenient entrance.”

    Disney Tours offers VIP passes that will accomplish the same thing at a rate of $310 to $380 an hour. But these Manhattan moms, although wealthy, see an opportunity to save some money by instead using the services of Dream Tours Florida. That rate is $130 per hour or $1040 for an eight-hour day.

    One proud mama had this to say:

    “My daughter waited one minute to get on ‘It’s a Small World’ — the other kids had to wait 2 ½ hours. You can’t go to Disney without a tour concierge. This is how the 1 percent does Disney.”

    Today’s post sums-up a great deal of history’s truth; especially about the U.S. Empire.

    lordrapter1 if I am ignorant of the time frame then you and I both need to return to school for current events and history. A long with the actual procedure and law of the concerning Presidential terms of office. Bush could not have a third term as it stands the way it is. So it was President Obama whom gave the order. But by all means continue to buy those lottery tickets since eventually everyone else will have won and it will be your turn. As to Obama care, granted that it is a very large and cumbersome endeavor as is any changes in the status quo. And to take into account that as it was with the past system which was money driven and healing people is a money losing operation.
    We could I guess could adopt the Marie Antoinette philosophy of “let them eat cake” or perhaps the object of let the poor and disheveled die and make room for others!
