“Someone stole my name back in 2005 and got a credit card for $1500. In 2007, the debt collector filed suit and sent the summons to an address I never had. I had moved from that state in 2003! They got a judgment against me that I didn't find out about until 2012. I got it discharged but it's still on my credit report and I'm still working to get it removed. Check your credit report annually.”
“If some GunNutz come into a business I'm patronizing, I would cancel the rest of my order, pay for what I've consumed and leave in a hurry. I'd also let them know loudly why. I can shop elsewhere. You GunNutz have a lot to learn about the Second Amendment.”

“I do wonder about, sorry to say it, but men (not women) who like to work around boys or even girls, but to a lesser extent; who are not blood related to them, it just seems odd.”

“Just stay away from church altogether. That is what Jesus purportedly said.”

“Once again, an anemic response to a society-wide problem. Your animosity toward religion is not co-equal with the conviction you ought to feel about addressing this problem. "Keep kids away from" this or that environment is not really possible. Predators do not confine themselves to churches. You are playing into their hands, not outsmarting them.”
“It's only a matter of time before an armed GunNut walks into a store that's been desensitized to armed customers and opens fire before their targets can respond. It will prove the "good guy with a gun" idea totally wrong. The only way to minimize or prevent that is to call 911 anytime the GunNutz enter.”

“They reported this on Salon.Com last week. They have these open carry groups in Texas and they don't sound too friendly. You have these Open Carry Texas protesting outside big shopping malls with their guns. When someone decided to call 911 and complain this is where the problem starts. They were talking about people getting harassed with angry phone calls and texts just because they decided to Call 911. So these people are doing what some from Anonymous would do.These people start looking for your personal information such as your address and phone number. Then they start using these things to harass you. These people don't sound like very friendly people.
You had that separate incident in Dallas where some people showed up to a Taco Bell with their guns. You could tell those employee were intimidated by those people with those guns. Rather than being respectful of others these gun owners carry their guns around like we shouldn't be bothered by them. We should respect their wishes and let them carry that gun into that restaurant. When these stories are published you have some that really think they could save people from being robbed. If you are eating somewhere and there ends up being a robbery you would be wishing that I had been in that restaurant with my gun. I guess we should expect you to know how to properly use that gun? You don't think that you are going risk those other customers lives with that gun?”

“Would that be better or worse than if someone walked into a store armed and opens fire on unarmed customers?”
“I really hate sexism and racism. I want it to go away. It can't as long as the very people that say they disagree with it are actively defending and guilty of it. Voting on someone because they are a specific sex or race as well as not voting on someone because of their specific sex or race is wrong. A person who voted on Obama because they wanted to see a black president is no different than a person who voted against Obama because they didn't want a black president. It works both ways.”
“Are you intentionally "hyperbolizing" my statement?”

“He just wants to argue. His arguments are ridiculous. Of COURSE women are going to go vote for both men AND women...but not for a man who thinks wanting birth control makes a woman "loose."”

“Not at all. You are stating that 50% of the population is only represented by less than 20% of the legislature which insinuates that men cannot represent women. Further, you advocate that women "get out in vote" in order to elect "women", because they are women, rather than the best candidate.
Both your statement that you are somehow underrepresented if your elected official isn't the same sex as you and your idea that women should "woman up" and go elect women are sexist and advocate for sexist behavior.”
“50 percent of the population represented by less than 20 percent of the legislature. Time to get out and vote, ladies! Woman Up!”

“Are you Kidding? we hear many GOP candidates and congressmen already stating women shouldnt have the right to \vote and yesterday another GOP candidate stated only people to vote should be property owners people who own property could and should vote everyone else is excluded. make sense?”

“But, you have to get women to run. If between the general and primary elections, all of the candidates are men, there isn't a whole lot you can do.
By the same token, if a district slants heavily to one party, chances are women aren't about to vote for a woman from the other party, just for the sake of electing a woman.”

“Not just ANY woman. McCain tried that one and it didn't work, Thank God.
I don't know any sane woman that voted for that nut he selected.”

“Are you advocating that women (or anyone) should vote on someone (or not vote on someone) specifically because of their sex or race?
If women decided to only vote on women how would that be any different then white men only voting on white men? Voting on someone because of their race or sex rather than their alignment with your views on issues is wrong and I'm surprised you'd advocate for it. It is also very sexist to say that somehow the elected officials these ladies voted for won't represent them or their interest when you are basing that opinion on nothing but their sex.”
