Rapid expansion of gay
rights redefines being ‘out'

Charlotte Observer [NC], by Michael Gordon

Original Article

Posted By:Muncsdad, 8/16/2014 5:24:47 PM

For members of Charlotte’s gay and lesbian community, there has always been out. Now there’s a new out. Rapid legal and cultural change are transforming interactions between the straight and gay worlds. For heterosexuals, that might mean more open – and potentially uncomfortable – conversations at home, church or work. For gays, especially older ones, the pace of change can be startling. While it has opened new pathways into mainstream Charlotte, it has also disrupted intentionally private lives. Finding a balance is not always easy. Sunday, Cathy Fry and Joanne Marinaro will join tens of thousands of other LGBT members

Of course, the conversations will only be "uncomfortable" for heterosexuals. Go pound sand, you moron. Don´t they have anything else to talk about except for being gay?

One other thing, just what is a "gay right"? Super rights based on nothing other than you have sex with a person of the same gender. If someone can prove otherwise, I´d like to hear it.

LGBTQLMNOP´s have always had access to the mainstream. As long as they kept their sexual activities in their bedrooms and to themselves. The "right" they want is the ability to call their perversions normal, to shove them in our faces and to make us accept them.

I never will.

So 1.6% of the population demands majority power?

Less than 2% of the population. And I am supposed to give a rat´s a** what those perverts do, care about or feel. Give me a break. When that miniscule portion of the population starts caring about what I do or feel maybe then I´ll give a damn.

Every time this subject comes up on a lucianne.com you can bet your life the haters will start posting. I consider myself very conservative and I say live and let live. My dear aunt who turned 91 in June is a lesbian. She would come over to our house for visits with her girlfriend. My father and mother never objected or made a scene. My aunt and my mother worked together in a defense plant during the war. She was the one who told my mom that her brother would be coming home on leave and she wanted to introduce them. The rest is history. Ther are many gay people, the majority I expect, that just want to be left alone with their lives. The hatred shown on this forum about this issue disgusts me.

We´re not talking about people who will live and let live. We´re talking about people who shove their bedroom habits in our faces at every opportunity and demand approval. I don´t want to know anyone´s bedroom habits. I was brought up to think that talking about it was trashy.

If that makes me a hater, so be it.

I´ve asked the same question 1,000 times - - and I still haven´t received a sensible answer - - but - - here goes again - - - -

How does the government - - the law - - determine who is a homosexual and who is not? What foolproof, evidential method does it use to determine that?

Oh, please, enuf with the "hater" meme. So what, you´re a conservative, and you´re Aunt´s a 91 year old lesbian. My brother, brother in law, neice and nephew are gay also. Does that mean they deserve special rights because they prefer to sleep with same sex people? They are all successful people in their own right. Gay people should be offended that the government seems to think they need special "rights". If people sound angry, it´s because they are, and rightfully so.

A 3 year old said it all--
I don´t want to go with mommy to see Jane and Debbie grama -- they think they is a mommy and daddy when they is just 2 mommies. They think daddies should go away. I want my daddy to stay not 2 mommies.
So live your choices but first
do not confuse your children they don´t understand and don´t demand cheers of unearned acceptance.

Federal complaint says N.C.
hog farms hurt minorities
Charlotte Observer, by Bruce Henderson    Original Article
Posted By: Muncsdad- 9/4/2014 5:39:23 PM     Post Reply
A federal complaint says North Carolina’s regulation of hog farms discriminates against minorities who, disproportionately, endure strong odors and contaminated water. Three groups filed a complaint Wednesday that asks the Environmental Protection Agency to investigate what they say are violations of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The filing comes nearly 20 years after 25 million gallons of waste burst from an Onslow County hog farm into the New River, focusing public attention on a fast-growing industry. Then and now, manure is washed out of the metal barns where hogs spend their brief lives into open pits called lagoons. Water from the lagoons

Feng Liu had a lunchtime routine that his colleagues and lab partners at the UNC-Chapel Hill school of pharmacy knew well. The 59-year-old Durham resident usually had a bite to eat and left his lab for a brisk 30-minute walk on campus or through nearby Chapel Hill neighborhoods. Typically, he returned cheerful and invigorated by the midday exercise. On Wednesday, the research professor at UNC’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy never came back.

A second Boggs Paving executive pleaded guilty Tuesday morning in connection with charges that the company received more than $87 million in road projects by misrepresenting the role a minority-owned contractor played in the work. Prosecutors say a third high-ranking company official will plead guilty on Wednesday. Kevin Hicks, the chief financial officer for the Monroe-based company, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the U.S. Department of Transportation and conspiracy to launder money. He will be sentenced at a later date. Hicks, 43, of Monroe, faces up to 25 years in prison and a $750,000 fine.

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose.

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty. As Elizabeth McCord, she has all the brains and determination of the original and none

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and

Four teachings from Jesus
that everybody gets wrong

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A.

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

Camp Edwards - Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day. “They didn´t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.” Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined
