To his credit, President Barack Obama added his voice to “It Gets Better” campaign to try to stem the suicide of gay and lesbian teenagers. Civil libertarians and gay rights advocates might be a bit more responsive if the message was not released the day his Administration successfully got a stay to be able to resume the removals of gays from the military and a week after it appealed a major victory in favor of gay marriage.
“When you’re teased or bullied it can seem like somehow you brought it on yourself … With time you’re going to see that your differences are a source of pride, a source of strength.” Unless of course you mention your sexual orientation to anyone while serving the country. Then the President wants to be sure that no court can stop your discharge or allow you to marry (despite his support for both gay service and marriage, of course).
I find this video a bit more credible:

Bdaman- Your wired.com article on WMD’s in Iraq has lots of speculation and very little substance. Nice photo of the Bullets of Mass Destruction however. Or are they tiny artillery rounds?
From Huffington Post (10/24/2010)
New Hampshire’s Largest Newspaper, Union Leader Of Manchester, Won’t Print Gay Marriage Notices
CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire’s largest newspaper is defending its decision to refuse to publish marriage notices for gay couples.
New Hampshire is one of five states to have legalized gay marriage. Two men getting married in Portsmouth on Saturday wanted to publish a marriage notice in the Union Leader of Manchester but were refused.
The newspaper says it has a constitutional right to choose what to print and opposes the new law. Publisher Joe McQuaid says the paper isn’t anti-gay but believes marriage is between a man and a woman.
Bdaman– Among the 400,000 leaked documents on the Iraq War, did they find the location of the “Weapons of Mass Destruction”? You remember…”The smoking gun that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud”
Hen, remember, the old Toyota commercial

Getting Back To God: Obama Uses the Word “Creator” For the Second Time in 2 Days When Quoting the Declaration
They must have been listening to all the chatter on the net.
Lottakatz the point is someone who proclaims to be a Christian would never leave out the most important part. It’s where the rights come from according to the declaration.
Hen he uses the prompter 99.9999999999999 percent of the time.
lottakatz- I give you a secular “Amen”. I love to remind conservatives that Russia, Cuba, and North Korea all salute red, white, and blue flags. The nerve of them Commies- they don’t say “under God” either. We should make them all show us their birth certificates. Damn furriners!
Bdaman: “I know what you mean Lottakatz it’s like the claim he’s a Muslim when everyone knows he’s a Christian but he continues to leave the word creator out when reciting the Declaration of Independence.”
As do I and I have for decades. Similarly, I’ve testified before a grand jury, arbitrators and various investigators for affidavits and refuse to swear (“so help you god”) but choose to affirm. So?
The alteration to the pledge (“under god”) came about as a quisling nod to the anti-red hysteria of the 50’s. The words should stick in the throat of a patriot.
We elected a President, not the nations pastor. The less about or related to religion from a politician the better IMO
I have been there many times…Windsor a lot…pretty much all over Ontario, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Scarborough, St. Thomas, New London….I wonder if Wally World is still there….
Yes, I agree Canada is beautiful….but damn cold…..especially Toronto in January….
AY- It’s a great country. I wish we were more like them. Our ongoing inability to get along with the rest of the world and our aggressive foreign policy have bankrupted us and made us an international pariah. It didn’t have to be that way.
Don’t forget the Movie Industry filming location sites….Vancouver…is a mecca for the industry….
Bdaman– You said “he (Obama) continues to leave the word “creator” out when reciting the Declaration of Independence”. Really? That’s all you’ve got? In the example you provided he gave a short excerpt- he also didn’t mention any of the grievances against King George III. Maybe he wasn’t using his Teleprompter, the other thing you Righties obsess over. Pretty small-time stuff compared to invading a country that had nothing to do with Sept. 11. I’m surprised G.W. Bush didn’t invade Canada. We could have saved billions on shipping costs alone-not to mention the free health care for our uninsured wounded soldiers. The reason he didn’t was that he feared a Canadian occupation of the U.S., which would have resulted in healthier Americans, a 95% reduction in the homicide rate, some great new comedians, and a 95% reduction in military expenditures. Sounds good to me, now that I think aboot it, eh?
And Iowa did its job well…two home games lost….what will the cost to Mack Brown be…his head on a platter…will be the cry of some of the alumni…

Case in point,I just came in from running errand,the above thread showed 77 comments but when logging into post it showed as of now with this post should be 88.
I just sent a message to wordpress. I have a feeling the professor inadvertently changed a setting.
Eniobob will you inform the professor. Maybe he can figure it out and contact wordpress. We all are affected.
I just did a firefox upgrade. Lets see if this makes a difference

Juan Williams Is Right: Political Correctness About Terrorists Must End!
An Open Letter to Juan Williams
Sorry to hear you got fired by National Public Radio for saying on Fox that you get nervous when you see Muslims on a plane with you. It was dumb to say such a thing, but I don’t think saying one dumb thing should be a firing offense. (I DO think an NPR journalist wanting to take money from Fox News to be a regular commentator should be a firing offense, but that’s another story).
It doesn’t explain how if I close the Turley Tab everything goes back to normal operation.
Man that is really strange”In IE it won’t let me put anything in.”
What ever you do,don’t Google your problem,you come away with more questions than answers.
In IE it won’t let me put anything in.
