[quote][b]Pologize[/b] - So now I have provided you with a video of him saying he supports gay marriage. Are we done debating Dick Cheney's position on gay marriage now?[/quote]
But somehow I think his support isn't real. I think keeping his family together is more important. It's called saving face.
And yes, we are.
[quote][b]Pologize[/b] - I hope it involves taking your pills or looking for a job.[/quote]
I don't take pills, nor do I need them. You need some lessons in manners and debate etiquette. Oh by they way, why aren't you doing something productive right now? Oh yeah, winning an argument with me is tantamount to such an activity.posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 11:48
@Pologize: Anyhow, we're done. I have other things to do. Moral of today's story?

You've got to be joking. So he is alienating his other daughter, Liz, whom is married to a man, and has children. I think he is trying not to destabilize his own family.

[quote][b]Pologize[/b] - You want a transcript to prove Cheney's position on gay marriage? I think your mental health has gotten the best of you today. If you are not aware of Dick Cheney's position on gay marriage then you have been locked in a basement for years. [/quote]
Or, there is no link. Your quips about my mental health notwithstanding.
Oh yeah, Liz Cheney isn't gay. Says something about your argument, doesn't it?posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 11:21
[quote][b]Ben Had[/b] - lol. And you're so naive.[/quote]
Sure, tell that to all of your pro-Palestinian friends, Carolyn and co. I crushed all of their anti-semitic arguments in front of a slew of different people. ironically people with such attitudes no longer are members of this website.
You wanna go? I have gigabytes of data on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict dating back to the 1920's. You wouldn't have a leg to stand on.
Naive? Imma shakin' in mah boots. (guffaws)posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 11:18
[quote][b]Pologize[/b] - The question of whether or not there ought to be a federal statute to protect this, I don't support. I do believe that the historically the way marriage has been regulated is at the state level. It has always been a state issue and I think that is the way it ought to be handled, on a state-by-state basis. ... But I don't have any problem with that. People ought to get a shot at that[/quote]
In this excerpt he was referring to the State's rights to define marriage. "People ought to get a shot at that." Oddly enough he did not voice his support a federal amendment defining marriage. If he really supported it, don't think he be more supportive of such a change, and thus his daughter? I smell fish. And it isn't the stuff I get from Captain D's.posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 11:10
[quote][b]Pologize[/b] - I think everyone is well aware of Dick Cheney's support for gay marriage so to question the context of this quote is pretty silly to begin with. He said this when asked about legislation on gay marriage that took place shortly before the interview[/quote]
Without a link transcribing this conversation Cheney was in, that is not verifiable.posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 11:01
[quote][b]Pologize[/b] - But you said, "The intro shows a man and a woman. This leads me to believe this ad is disingenuous. " So what actually makes the ad disingenuous? You've said two different things here. [/quote]
That, and it shows no clips of GAY couples. Wait what? If you were going to make an ad about gay marriage, wouldn't you show two men or two women? Yeah, I stand by what I said, about Bush, and about the montage.
[quote][b]Pologize[/b] - Just face it, the republican party is slowly doing one huge flip flop just like their last presidential candidate on many issues. [/quote]
How many times did Obama flip flop on gay marriage again?posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 10:56
Ahhh struck a chord. All of your pro-Palestine arguments just went up in smoke.posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 10:40
[quote][b]Pologize[/b] - So now that I have shown you a commercial, your saying that it is disingenuous simply because a man and woman are in the intro? That makes no sense at all. [/quote]
What makes it disingenuous is the fact Laura Bush pulled her support from the ad after that interview was aired. Read the link. She was the keystone of the entire ad. Then they pulled a rather obscure quote from Dick Cheney "freedom means freedom for everyone." In what context was that quote made?
[quote][b]Pologize[/b] - Also, many of the young republicans are going to support gay marriage simply because they are not bigots or because they actually read and believe in the constitution. [/quote]
By all definitions, I am still a "young" republican/libertarian. You know exactly where I stand on the issue. I have the Constitution and multiple commentaries stored on my PC. I read it. I still don't support it. You can live with it.posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 10:37
[quote][b]ElevatorLady[/b] - It will make people seriously consider whether they want to own a dog that was bred to attack.[/quote]
That argument will fall flat on its face. Any dog can be "bred" to attack. Domestication is a form of taming the beast. In this sense any dog's first instinct is to be wild and untamed.posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 10:30
The intro shows a man and a woman. This leads me to believe this ad is disingenuous. So, what are they trying to pull? You can easily say "I support gay marriage" and claim to be a Republican. Thing is, you are nothing but a flip flopper.posted @ Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 10:15

[quote][b]NXS[/b] - I can't seem to recall you slamming Romney for being politically cheap and cowardly... though he certainly was![/quote]
Because "cheap" and "cowardly" aren't policies he enacted nor are they reasons that influence my vote. I might add that name calling is not a valid argument for why you voted against him. Unlike most people, I don't vote based off of my emotions.

Summary: Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
