    Very good discussion going on right now on Larry King. It will probably be rebroadcast later in the early morning for guys missing it now on the east coast. He says that if a gay man wanted to serve the country, he would walk up to him and shake his hand and say thank you. He continues to say:

    "We are the United States of America, not the Heterosexual States of America"

    Bravo!

    He also shoots down Palin big time. Paraphrasing: "She is a quitter cashing in on her notoriety."

    He also wants to legalize MJ.

    Exactly. I don't know about legalizing MJ either. I am more afraid about more people driving around me under the influence of it than cartels.

    But here is a good example of someone in the media that many young men, many homophobic, look up to. Him saying that gays should be treated like everyone else DOES have an impact on these men. They idolize him because of wrestling. Every bit helps.

    Jesse is awesome. I can't say I always agree with him. He gets a little kooky, but I always love the way he says things.

    It's Jesse, dammit. He's gonna pound it to ya whether you like it or not. No cloak and daggers. No smoke and mirrors. Just straight up "This what I'm thinking. This is what I know. This is how I feel. All fact and no fluff." You just gotta respect that.

    You want an answer? Well he's got one for you but there's no guarantee that you'll like it. That's what you get when you're dealing with a man who's gonna keep it real and tell you the deal.

    I wish more politicians (current and former) would speak their minds and tell the truth. Not just what is politically advantageous to say.

    Yaaay Jesse!

    Jesse is a former Navy Seal, very famous WWF Wrestler, and the former governor of The State of Minnesota, who has also written several fast selling books.

    I especially had to giggle about his remarks on Palin.

    He was on Howard Stern today, loved whats he also said today on gay topics, he once again did say this is not the hetero states on america but also joked that he'd have appreciated more gays in Vietnam, as it would've meant less competition for the whores in Saigon.

    LMAO

    I am not a fan of the conspiracy theories, but I sure would like to have him lock that wrestling body around me. icon_wink.gif

    Actually that is true, he's a big time conspiracy freak, on that stuff I disagree with him. Especially on his 9/11 conspiracy.

    Excellent evaluation of him as a person. Not that I'd expect anything else...


    Oh no doubt, he is a pretty shitty person for real. I know a few people who know him. The guy is a dickhead, and always angry very off-putting lol.

    I like him. I completely disagree with much of what he says but he speaks his mind with no weasel words. I wish all politicians would do so.

    If we could legalize gay marriage and mj on the federal level...he could be as much of an asshole as he wanted. He'd still be my number one hero for life.
