Mr. Meade's GOP today...

A question from a gay soldier was met with boos during Thursday night’s Fox News Republican presidential debate.

“In 2010 when I was deployed to Iraq, I had to lie about who I was because I’m a gay soldier and I didn’t want to lose my job,” Stephen Hill, a U.S. soldier serving Iraq, told the candidates. “Under one of your presidencies, do you intend to circumvent the progress that have been made for gay and lesbian soldiers in the military?”
Mississippi Conservative Calls For Putting Gay People To Death http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/05/19/mississippi-2/
“To be clear, I want the world to know that I do not, cannot, and will not apologize for the inspired truth of God’s Word. It is one thing that will never “change.”


“If you’re involved in the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it’s bondage. It is personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement.” ~ Michele Bachmann

“If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything.”

"...the right to privacy doesn't exist in my opinion in the United States Constitution", ~ Rick Santorum.

Georgia Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss' office has confirmed the "all faggots must die" comment left on a gay rights blog originated from his office.

Arkansas Republicans tried to distance themselves Saturday from a Republican state representative’s assertion that slavery was a “blessing in disguise” and a Republican state House candidate who advocates deporting all Muslims.

Fuqua said Saturday that he hadn’t realized he’d become a target within his own party, which he said surprised him.

“I think my views are fairly well-accepted by most people,” Fuqua said before hanging up, saying he was busy knocking on voters’ doors.

The Texas Republican Party platform 2012: Homosexuality

We affirm that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society and contributes to the breakdown of the family unit. Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God, recognized by our country’s founders, and shared by the majority of Texans. Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable “alternative” lifestyle, in public policy, nor should “family” be redefined to include homosexual “couples.” We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin. Additionally, we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality

This list could be nearly endless, Mr. Meade.

OK I missed that Akin thing, and I think it HAS to be a joke. Right?

"Lesbians can be cured by drinking something else," Akin replied "I'll leave that one to your imagination."

Edit: of course it is. Do you read the shit you post, Jonny?

No need to commit a "Boehner" so early in the thread, Ned.

jonnygothispen-
Please edit your original post to eliminate the satirical piece about Akin which you suggested was news.
Then, please edit your thread title. Why would you give him the very attention he seeks? Can't you just ignore him?

I don't mind helping people who live off of state money, like the stately Meade does. But I see what you mean: At some point he's going to have to learn to be personally responsible for his own actions.

You'll fit right in with Meade's GOP...

Republican candidate for the Arkansas legislature, Charlie Fuqua, and former member of the Arkansas legislature - supported by the Arkansas Republican Party and two sitting members of Congress, says in his 2012 book, “God’s Law: The Only Political Solution“
The maintenance of civil order in society rests on the foundation of family discipline. Therefore, a child who disrespects his parents must be permanently removed from society in a way that gives an example to all other children of the importance of respect for parents. The death penalty for rebellious children is not something to be taken lightly. The guidelines for administering the death penalty to rebellious children are given in Deut 21:18-21:

The Baby Jesus was God's apology for all the nonsense in the Old Testament. "Oops! Sorry! We goofed up for thousands of years! Forget everything I said! Let's start over again!" With Love, GOD

So you'd rather take your shots than work to make sure your posts are factual? I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

I'm not going to participate in the lies, but I'm not going to get too excited about Democrats who spread them. This is the bread and butter of the Republican Party. Have you ever seen the ridiculous emails that go out to the true believers? Sheesh, Obama was arrested for molesting children before his buddies at city hall buried the story! As a rule of thumb, if it says something bad about your political opponent, it must be true. No other considerations required.

No, it's definitely my mistake that I didn't take the time to check that one out. But the overall Republican attitude is beyond belief.

Nor am I surprised that you'd rather dismiss the more substantive point by trying to make my one mistake over rule that.

So what are you actually trying to say beyond the peering down your nose at me? That you can't defend today's GOP?
