    It appears that Tennessee is getting to be just as bad as both Texas and Russia.icon_mad.gif

    More evidence that Republicans really love gays, it's the Democrats who actually hate us, we should never trust or vote for them. Or so the RJ conservaposse is always telling us.

    And before some Right Winger here starts whining about making "generalizations" I'll note that it's ALWAYS Republican lawmakers who are proposing these legislative outrages in the US. They pop up in the news with these things almost weekly. And Right Wing nutjubs get some of these things passed, with the votes of... other Republicans.

    But no, sorry, guess I'm generalizing. I shouldn't pay attention to the consistent & obvious pattern that everyone else here recognizes, except for... RJ Republicans. icon_rolleyes.gif

    You have to remember that it is the FLAKY FUNDAMENTALISTS that are pushing for these offensive, idiotic, anti-gay laws. It is primarily southern Republicans that push for this stupid bullshit because the southern states are mostly FLAKY FUNDAMENTALIST country.

    Well they're killing the party.

    And at the moment it's those flakes who control the national Republican Party, and most of the State parties.

    No, not FLAKY FUNDAMENTALISTS - bat-shit crazy fundamentalists. There's a difference!

    In other news, does this Kelsey person maybe also favor not having to serve Jews, Blacks, people from other religions, lefties, etc? There are a LOT of people out there to fear, after all! Intelligent people are pretty scarey, too!

    It doesn't matter what part of the country is primarily pushing this, or which part of their base. Their leaders are still aiming to keep our relationships unequal, unofficial and off-the-books, permanently.

    QFT

    But if you tell RJ Republicans that, they'll say you're "generalizing" Republicans unfairly. Or turning every subject political.

    Well, gay civil rights ARE political, by their very nature. What else would you call them? Academic debating points? Republicans have certainly made them political, and use them against us to energize their voting base, most shamefully during the 2004 US Presidential election.

    And as you illustrate, US Republicans from top to bottom, but especially their leadership and their official Party Platforms, at both national and state level, are gay hostile. Why do RJ Republicans try to disguise and deny that?

    "You're generalizing and turning everything political" they whine. Damn right I'm turning gay rights political, just like they have. About time they got a taste of their own medicine. It's a truism that bullies can dish it out but they can't take it themselves. They prove it here every day. icon_razz.gif

    After over 10,000 posts bashing conservatives on here. I think we've seen plenty out of you, but strangely, you manage to get in the middle of almost every food fight on RJ. Why?

    "And without your buddy southbeach here to feed you lines, at least openly for a while, I suggest you keep your little noggin down in the interim, and out of the line of fire."

    Cute edit

    SB is still here. Btw, you making threats?

    Yeah, SB's socks are known, still active, and I myself said I thought he hadn't been banned, but rather in voluntary Hidden mode, lurking. Following some attorney-speak in a thread by others that made it sound like he might be in some serious legal trouble for online stalking.

    But aren't YOU the informed one? How could you confirm SB is still here if you aren't in private contact with him? Thanks for confirming what I had assumed.

    As for threats, I never make them. My suggestion to keep your little noggin (head) down was rhetorical, and most friendly. Meaning without your wingman southbeach you can't stand on your own feet in verbal confrontations on this site. Now hurry up and email him so you know what to reply to me next. icon_wink.gif

    But of course I'm in private contact with him and many others. Why?

    And sorry sweetheart, I stand on my own three feet (yeah, that long). I don't need SB or anyone else to tell me what to say. I don't seem to have any trouble figuring that out all by my lil old self.

    And speaking on confrontations, why are you in almost every single one on RJ?

    Thank you for confirming you're a southbeach private friend, FIF, coordinating with him in private email as I assumed. It shows.

    And no, that's your distortion that I'm in "almost every" RJ confrontation. And your motivation for creating that myth is rather transparent.

    But I'm certainly involved with many of the POLITICAL confrontations that are most important to you. Yeah, I'm pro gay rights, whereas you, an admitted straight man (or is it asexual/bisexual, you keep changing the story), are not. Yeah, I'm a pro-gay Democrat, while you are an anti-gay Republican.

    How many times have we heard you say you wish the second George Bush was back in the White House? The most anti-gay President in my lifetime, and that goes back to Truman.

    No, my dear, your pedigree is well established here. And until your buddy southbeach returns, which I have no doubt will be shortly, you are working at a disadvantage. His private advice to you isn't the same as the 2 of you singing in concert here.

    So I say again, you might wanna keep your head down in the forums until your Big Brother returns. You're not up to it yourself.

    I exchange email with a bunch of people I have never met as do you. That makes him or anyone else a "private friend"?

    And no, that's your distortion that I'm in "almost every" RJ confrontation. And your motivation for creating that myth is rather transparent.

    "myth"? Hardly

    Pizza hut ... political? "set foot versus step foot ... political? Shaving .... Political? The 56 PIMPerial thread .... political? And how many hundred other fights have you been in? And what was that last night with that flyguy57(sp?) that you started?

    "whereas you, an admitted straight man"

    Proof? YN2K taught you Google Advanced Search. use it.

    How many times have we heard you say you wish the second George Bush was back in the White House? The most anti-gay President in my lifetime, and that goes back to Truman.

    No hun. John Ellis Bush for 2016

    No, my dear, your pedigree is well established here. And until your buddy southbeach returns, which I have no doubt will be shortly, you are working at a disadvantage. His private advice to you isn't the same as the 2 of you singing in concert here.

    One email exchanged today ... laughing at you of course. So you gonna leave TBA out? ... He be hurt you know

    So I say again, you might wanna keep your head down in the forums until your Big Brother returns. You're not up to it yourself.


    True, some are better than me at the insult wars. Especially this one who sums it up so nicely about you

    Yep, hard to compete with a gem like this

    "Do you know how many times I have censored myself when it comes to you, you sanctimonious old blowhard? Do you know how difficult it has been to stay civil as you bore everyone in a radius of 3000 miles with your thread-derailing, irrelevant, tedious stories? You are positively radioactive, that's what you are. You 're like the Medusa, turning everyone into stone by boring them to death,. That is when you're not pulling rank on everyone as though you're still in the army.

    You fucking trainwreck"

    You pasted that very well. Proving my point about you & SB.

    You are a straight man (alternately bisexual, "unisexual", some kind of sexual) on a gay site.

    Yah know, do you really think this is the correct place for you? I did like discussions about your rusty old Pontiacs, because I love old cars, and that's my era. Nothing much I can do about it but embrace it, I was born in 1949. That ain't gonna change, and your old wrecks are nostalgic to me. I rode around in those stupid things.

    But when you start attacking gay civil rights TODAY, that's very much a different matter. This is a GAY site. And if you have a problem with gays, and admittedly aren't gay yourself, then WTF are you here for?

    That's the question I think a lot of us would like to hear answered, along with your buddy southbeach.

    "You are a straight man "

    "admittedly aren't gay yourself"

    Proof? You've tried similar shit with me many times. Remember the shit with the "libtards", a term I never use? The proof doesn't quite flow your way, does it?

    "Yah know, do you really think this is the correct place for you?"

    Not like you haven't said this a few hundred times, but really none of your business really. You don't own this site. You're simply trying to silence any opposition n

    And frankly I came out in 1970 at age 16 and fought your battles when the going was really tough. Where the hell were you? We could have used a loud mouth like you back then. Thanks for the help.

    "rusty old Pontiacs"

    So more insults?

    you mean these

    Well, yeah, silence your hostile opposition to a gay site. And you HAVE said numerous times here that you aren't gay. Are you retracting that?

    I mean, I'd like for you to be gay. Is that what you are? Then just come out and tell us. I'd welcome you myself, gladly, JOYOUSLY.

    What I DON'T like is this game playing. And that's what you do. So again you have the opportunity, in a friendly place. What are you?

    Very different from you claiming that I said I was straight. Are you retracting that?

    "What I DON'T like is this game playing"

    Within your power to stop anytime.

    I'm gonna be very patient. Try to extend a hand of gay friendship if you will accept it. But first you've gotta be honest with yourself and with us. You haven't been in the past. What are you? And why are you here?
