The Daily Mail is shocked? Shocked?

Heck, I was probably one of the more naive kids of my generation, and even I knew Jim Nabors was gay. (we didn´t call it that back then, what we did call it is left as an exercise for the student).

At least we know now where he came up with his trademark, ´Shazzam!´ Wonder if he ever hit on Barney when he was just trolling the gas pumps?

Way the **** too much information.

Everyone knew this back in the 60´s. No one cared. He let his talent speak for him instead of his sexual orientation.

He and his friend ate at my family´s restaurant on St Thomas one day years ago. They were on a cruise and stopped in for lunch. My mom swooped in and made his acquaintance. He was wonderfully gracious and they would exchange Christmas cards every year. I still have a pic of him there. It was a huge deal for the family. He´s a great guy.

Everyone always knew it, and honestly no one cared. He didn´t rub your face in it, just lived his life. I think the overwhelming majority don´t care if someone is gay or not, they just don´t like having it rubbed in their faces constantly be overthetop activists.

He kept it private, as sexuality should be. The rest is between him and God and therefore none of my business, since he didn´t push our faces into it.

I´m w/ 14 and 15. Nabors is no activist demanding special treatment, or anything else, he´s just living his life, and I respect that. I´m sure the "marriage" was strictly for financial purposes- blame the tax man. BTW, I believe there is no such thing as gay marriage. Marriage is between one man and one woman.

But, #16, if the purpose of such a so-called "marriage" is so that homosexual partners can leave their estates to one another,
it is not true that they needed to force a change in the very meaning of the word "marriage" to accomplish that goal.

In a way this is a perfect example of why the GOP/RNC is losing ground. For the most part the gay marriage issue should be way down on the "To Do" list of conservatives. Its has been, and rightly so shifted to the states. Add to this the fact that it seems many conservatives like me see it for what it is, a needless distraction. The churches are responsible for allowing government to pry its nose into marriage issue in the first place. The proverbial deal with the devil.

These "issues" are allowing our elected officials distract us from the real issues we all face; the size of government, its run away spending, and its intrusion into our lives.

Until these issues are dealt with, nothing else really matters.

Can´t speak to Maurice (Samantha´s father), but Dr. Bombay is not gay. Or if he is, somebody needs to tell the woman he´s been married to since 1961.

Paul Lynde, on the other hand...

Everyone who watched was made aware by the show´s writers that, ´´Gomer,´´ was a little different in his thinking but he was loved for his kind & gentle spirit and the contributions he made to the happiness & unity of the town of, ´´Mayberry.´´ Andy, Barney & the good townspeople, -each of whom certainly had their own, er, ...´uniqueness´, reached out to help & encourage each other. Each one respected the others.

At this late date, 82 year old Nabors now would seem to be using Gomer´s scripted innocent personna to further his own personal political agenda. ...shameless

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.
