   Fireball27  Just saw the new Nabisco Honey Graham crackers commercial. Another ad trying to push gayness into the mainstream. I still don't think it is normal.

   Safetydude  Well, another brilliant comment was bounced by the word police. The word I used was qu**r. Please tell me, gentle readers, why a word as common as qu**r is no longer allowed in a polite and civilized conversation.

We are forced by the PC crowd to refer to abnormal behavior as 'gay'.

To me 'gay' is the New Years Eve ball in the Grand Vienna Hotel, with the women in beautiful gowns and the men in Tuxedos all gaily dancing to Strauss waltzes.
Gay is also how a family feels on Christmas morning opening present around the tree.
Gay used to be a happy word, now it's a negative.

This is what drives it.

   FlatCityGirl  It seems to me that there are any number of "mainstream" words that don't get through the filter here, and yet, there are new posters at the site who are getting away with really vile things. Variations of the "Eff word" and words referring to a certain part of the female anatomy being the two I've noticed most recently.

No one seems to care, and yet, I've seen the staff come on and jump on people for things that aren't nearly as bad.

It seems that some of the new ones haven't gotten the message that Lucianne is a Salon, not a Saloon, and the staff is asleep at the switch.

   Iacta alea est  Yes! Good call on the remembering Phooey. Let us toast Joshua's memory and all the good things he gave us via 'The Connection" an aside, months ago I flew on the same plane as Josh's brother Jonah. A fun fellow, and much taller than I had thought him to be.

   John C  Just unbelievable- From the massresistance website POSTED: May 5, 2015

Across Massachusetts – and across America – thousands of schoolchildren are given sexually graphic, psychologically intrusive surveys by the public schools without parents’ knowledge.

These surveys ask youth to reveal their criminal activity, personal family matters (guns, drug use ), and other intimate issues.

Every two years the Mass. DOE creates a new statewide version of the CDC national Youth Risk Behavior Survey and makes it available to each school district. The school districts can further modify the surveys if they wish and are given wide discretion as to how they notify parents, whether they allow the parents to see the surveys, how the surveys are administered to the students, etc. When questioned the department didn't have time to answer.

   Bettijo  Some folk in this country have been saying FMD was Obama's father for a long time, but where did the "stepfather" id come from?

"According to a Kenyan news outlet, the president’s family has now entirely disowned him. One of his more vocal critics, his half-brother, Malik Obama (son of Barack Obama Sr ), maintains that Obama is not actually the son of Barack Obama Sr. Malik’s evidence: Barack looks and behaves nothing like Obama Sr. Most likely, Malik claims, the president was born of an affair between his mother Ann Dunham and communist poet Frank Marshal Davis—a conspiracy theory that has circled around for years.

“Obama resembles his step father, Frank, in many ways and is just a liar and mean like him. It is possible his mother messed around to give birth to him because his definitely not the son of my father, Barrack Obama senior—they have nothing in common,” said Malik."

   MeiDei  Have often wondered if she became pregnant while in HS in Washington State, where her mother was a bank VP & thus the sudden move to Hawaii. She was accepted & enrolled at college there. It's more than possible his daddy is a citizen & BHO, Sr. needed a reason to stay in the States. She & the baby left HI 2 weeks after his birth to attend college in Washington State. Not so odd that Malik is now speaking out against him, since 0 reportedly gave him big bucks for Malik's charity but Malik now claims he did not, nor did he contribute to have his aunt's body returned to Kenya, as detailed in a recent HuffPost article & an A.I.M. report.

   Belwhatter  Apparently young Stanley Ann was a devotee of Malcolm X who wa in Seattle at the same time she was attending Mercer Island HS. There is not the remotest resemblance to Obama Senior when comparing skull bone structure to Malcolm or even FMD, both of whom are much more compatible.I think Granny knew the truth but she wasn't allowed to survive because of that. Interesting how Malik is now speaking up.

   Gerty  Many of us must be watching Fox News as it covers the social atrocity now taking place in the city of Baltimore.

What is going on with those people at FNC?

Hauling out the ubiquitous Geraldo--aging buffoon that he is--is, at best, annoying.
Masked faces and contorted voices do not make the information highway a comfortable ride!

Come on, Fox News, you're better than that!

   Bettijo  I agree with you, Gerty. Fox News was totally disgusting last night. I could not watch it. Even Megan Kelly was awful. That mechanized (or whatever ) voice was grating on my nerves. I turned it off. Disguised guests are as bad as "anonymous sources," not authentic, not necessarily to be believed.

   Mildred  Geraldo is the only one who wants to do this stuff and it's not in anyone else's contract. Geraldo will go anywhere at any time in order to be on TV. Bettijo, you are absolutely right about Megyn Kelly. Haven't watched in quite awhile. The aging 'lady of the night' in teeny-bopper clothes and funny hair routine is getting old--no pun intended. It happens to all the TV personalities when they begin to believe all the p.r. Too bad. She is intelligent and could be better.

Note the last one on Harry Truman
"Dream as if you will live forever, live as if you will die tomorrow".

It's one you want your Children and Grandchildren to read. They won't believe this happened, but it DID. Harry & Bess

Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He probably made as many, or more important decisions regarding our nation's history as any of the other 32 Presidents preceding him. However, a measure of his greatness may rest on what he did after he left the White House. The only asset he had when he died was the house he lived in, which was in Independence, Missouri. His wife had inherited the house from her mother and father and other than their years in the White House, they lived their entire lives there.

When he retired from office in 1952 his income was a U.S. Army pension reported to have been $13,507.72 a year. Congress, noting that he was paying for his stamps and personally licking them, granted him an 'allowance' and later, a retroactive pension of $25,000 per year.

After President Eisenhower was inaugurated, Harry and Bess drove home to Missouri by themselves. There was no Secret Service following them.

When offered corporate positions at large salaries, he declined, stating, "You don't want me. You want the office of the President, and that doesn't belong to me.. It belongs to the American people and it's not for sale."

Even later, on May 6, 1971, when Congress was preparing to award him the Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday, he refused to accept it, writing, "I don't consider that I have done anything which should be the reason for any award, Congressional or otherwise." As president he paid for all of his own travel expenses and food. Modern politicians have found a new level of success in cashing in on the Presidency, resulting in untold wealth.

Today, too many in Congress also have found a way to become quite wealthy while enjoying the fruits of their offices. Political offices are now for sale Good old Harry Truman was correct when he observed, "My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there's hardly any difference! We ought to have cloned him for telling it like it is and being frugal with our tax dollars!
