“Ahh news flash for you gals out there

Take it from a guys perspective:
- every male has their own unique perception of what beauty is
- the underlying foundation of this beauty starts with how you choose to live your life.

There are a lot of guys out there, if one of us doesn't find you appealing, there are plenty of others that do.

Do yourself a favor and loose the body image issues.”

Harriett Duke Stanford on Nov 27, 2013 at 15:52:54

“And a lot of men like self confidence too. Try it ladies.”

“Having undergone a very nasty divorce 20 years ago, don't blame that process for his actions. His own out-of-control hatred and sick need to control his ex-wife triggered his actions, and as a doctor, he had to know he needed professional help to address it. Unfortunately, he made this tragic choice leaving the worst possible legacy could have for their children.”

Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.”

“Funny, in about 80% of those cases, you have no proof that the shooter belonged to any political party, let alone the Democrats.

Also funny how you leave out the big elephant in the room: Tim McVeigh - Republican.

And it's also funny how you also leave out the following KNOWN right-wingers:

James Huberty
Buford Farrow
James Atkinson
Keith Luke
Donnie Baker
Richard Popalowski
Charles Polk
George Tiller
Peter Langan
Larry Shoemake
Eric Rudolph

“Unfortunately your translations of your husbands announcement was obviously flawed.

Here’s the real translation:

Over the past 25 years you have taken me for granted, you didn’t love me for me, only what I was able to provide you with. You didn’t listen to my concerns, fears, instead focused on your own selfish desires. Over the past several years it has become apparent that you will only continue to view the world through your own selfish eyes. Oh and you forget that foreplay is a two way street.

Life is too short. See Ya!”

“What these polls do show is that people are coming to their senses that the loony proposals being put forth by the liberal/progressives would not make one bit of difference in reducing the slaughter of innocents.

BTW you forgot to provide the disclaimer that polls collecting data on a web site are not scientific in nature and in no way are representative of the overall perceptions of Americans.

The incidents of the past week in DC and Chicago clearly show that despite harsh and stringent gun control laws they flat out do not work.

DC, Newton, Colorado all show a failure of the Mental Health system in America.

Chicago is nothing but a byproduct of years of Liberal/Progressive social policies which enable the grinding poverty that breeds the crime their citizens are forced to endure.”

“Reasons why come in two flavors, Yours and theirs and are frequently different.

Engaging in any details other than:

We tried very hard to make this work but couldn't.
You are in no way to blame for the failure of our marriage.
We both still love you very much and will continue to work very hard to see that you you grow into a fine successful person.

Are the only acceptable messages kids should receive. Are they 100% accurate? The kids will judge that over time and form their own opinions.”

BookQueen on Sep 10, 2013 at 20:12:14

“Sometimes those things aren't true. I don't think falsehood will help them.

If one partner really didn't try, should you lie for them and confuse the kid?

If one person's love for their child is not shown in how they act, should you lie for them or help your child adjust to reality? (I would draw a line between pointing out the parent's lack of love and not saying we both love you when one parent is deserting their kid, etc.)”

TheZestyOne on Sep 10, 2013 at 12:42:43

“Absolutely agree with you. Rarely is there one "truth" anyways. It will be one person's perception of truth and will naturally taint the view of the child toward the other parent.

Your message is clear, and kind, and neutral. It is best for the children.”

“Nonsense. Be honest. It is amazing how kids blame themselves otherwise. And if it's a matter of infidelity, they need to know - because it can and should affect their future relationships if the correspondent becomes a "step."”

“It’s hardly a perception, it’s a fact, and depending on the state some are better than others.
Let’s start with the lack of accountability on judges parts to fairly interpret the laws. Many are patriarchal and impose their views on divorce proceedings.

Division of property: Again governed by state laws and those with Common Property are highly favorable to women.
Child Custody: Many state still lack the presumption of shared custody.
