    Can't get your mind around the FACT that the anthem and the flag REPRESENT those values Beth? They are the tangible, visible and audible representatives of the intangible values. Why is that so hard to grasp? Oh, because it hinders your "Kill Trump" agenda. I know, I know.


    And the symbols are not all I care about, and they are not "dumbass symbols." I'm actually shocked that you have such callous regard for them. The symbols and the values they represent go hand in hand, along with the constitution. I applaud the liberty that allows people to disrespect the symbols, but I have disdain for those who choose to do so. And if anyone chooses to engage in despicable behavior, they earn the disdain that comes with their poor choices. That's their problem, not mine.


    By the way, the players are employees when on the field, and there's no such thing as First Amendment rights on the job. So you're wrong about that.

    Texas authorities on Sunday discovered the body of a small child while searching for a 3-year-old girl who has been missing for more than two weeks.


    Sherin Mathews of Richardson, Texas, was reported missing on October 7, according to the Richardson Police Department. She was last seen in the backyard of her family's home early that morning by her adoptive father, Wesley Mathews.


    The body was found around 11 a.m. Sunday morning in a culvert beneath a road, Sgt. Kevin Perlich, spokesman for the police department, told reporters Sunday.


    ...Sherin's father told police he left his daughter outside around 3 a.m. on October 7, as punishment "because she wouldn't drink her milk"...


    ...He later told police he knew coyotes had been seen in the alley where he told her to stay...

    For the first time in its 64-year history, Playboy magazine will feature a transgender Playmate, a decision that Cooper Hefner, a top executive at the magazine, said on Thursday was in keeping with its founding mission of embracing changing attitudes about sex.


    ...But the announcement was not without resistance.  ...One of the letters, which was shared with The New York Times on Thursday, read: “At the risk of being labeled bigots, racists, reactionaries and sundry other things currently in vogue, we entreat you to return to your time-tested format of Playmate selection, which is more in line with the thinking of the vast majority of your readers.”



  4. I was watching a movie about a young woman who was walking home in the evening with her daughter after a Fourth Of July celebration, and was accosted by some losers who dragged her into a shed and gang raped her as her daughter ran and hid.  After they finished with her, they beat her and left her for dead.  At their pretrial hearing, Don Johnson played their defense attorney, and gave the most outrageous account of what happened.  You have to see this to get the full flavor of it.



  5. From Fox News 19 October 2017:
    A transgender Wyoming woman was convicted Thursday of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl inside a bathroom. Michelle Martinez, who was known as Miguel Martinez before identifying as female, was found guilty of first-degree and second-degree sexual abuse of a minor and could face up to 70 years in prison.

    Another family member who was in that vehicle corroborated the congresswoman's story and went public with that.  I'll believe the grieving family member.  Regardless, whether intentional or not, Trump's words upset the grieving widow.  To not even bother to call and clarify is reprehensible.  To my knowledge, Trump hasn't called her to clarify the thoughts he intended to convey.


    He probably should not: he just might make matters worse...

    I think a person thinking they were born into the wrong gender because a voice in their head says they should be wearing dresses is a mentally ill person who should not have access to elective mutilation surgery.  I do not approve of anyone treating them with less than the respect that we all deserve.   




    They deserve to have HypnoTherapy treatment just like any other mentally ill person...

    I, then, enquired: "Where did they say they "hate America"?


    And did BeAChooser point out "Where did they say they "hate America""?  Of course not. And why am I not surprised! Just some old bluster and BS. And didn't I just know, somehow, that this is the way this would turn out. So predictable. These BlowHards thrive on making bold and sweeping generalizations, but when called upon the carpet to examine into the ranting, the foundation crumbles, along with veracity; and, we find that the equivocations are just that; just blowing smoke.

    This merely buttresses your earlier points, with which I agree adamantly - that this is a manufactured argument, intended to distract and divide. But we must have the argument, notwithstanding. The desire by the left to codify into law the right of men to use the ladies' rooms (and showers, etc.) will obviously result in men taking advantage for purposes OTHER than intended. An obvious example would be frat boys, acting a dare or complying with the terms of a rush. Another would be creeps and peepers. Then there are rapists, looking for victims of opportunity. Extending their hunting grounds to places where women are the most isolated and vulnerable (literally, with their pants down) is foolhardy - nay, clinical. 


    That is why I am arguing that IF WE ARE GOING TO CODIFY "TRANSGENDER RIGHTS" INTO LAW, then we must define "transgender" as having completed sexual reassignment surgery. To do less would be to deprive millions and millions of women of their privacy rights and their rights to safety.


    It is not uncommon for the rights and interests of citizens to conflict - my right to run a hog farm and your right to run a day care, for example. For such conflicts,we have zoning laws - which is precisely what segregated facilities really are. Zoning laws. The rights of a few thousand men who "feel like a woman" to have access to women's spaces should be subordinate to the rights of millions of women to be safe and private in their sex-segregated facilities. And THAT is liberalism 101: the greatest good for the greatest number, when rights conflict. 


    And the "law" should also read that if a man is pretending to be a woman, and is caught in the ladies room, he will be operated upon right there and then by those nearby and with whatever instrument is handy that will suffice.
