“You do realize that sharks live in every ocean, right ? Only a few species are considered dangerous. Be glad you don't live in Australia.”

Shanon Brown on May 22, 2013 at 03:57:09

“Yes, Tom. Everyday I am thankful I live far, far away from Australia. Far away.”

“Exactly, that appeared to be a harmless-to-humans sand shark....ocean bathers swim in & around them unknowingly. Only a few sharks are dangerous and yeah, Australia is jacked-up with 'em, the men in gray suits they call 'em.”

“I am a Virginian and I am an Independent and I really despise many of these Republicans in my state. Their attitudes toward gays is reprehensible. They seem more concerned with overturning the legal right of abortion instead of actually fixing our problems.”

“How's this for a fact ?There is NOTHING according to science that is wrong with being homosexual, yet these bigots want to persecute people they don't agree with based on religious superstitions, ancient hatreds and mythologies. They are against marriage - gay marriage. They are against adoption - gay adoption. They only thing they are trying to protect is their own hatred of gays and that must stop.”

“Well, Mr Grassley, maybe you are so old that you remember 1939 but I am sure I do not.

I do agree with you about The 'History" Channel. With such informative shows as Swamp People, Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy, Ax Men, Counting Cars, Pawn Stars, Top Shot etc, filling up so much of the schedule, I just don't understand why more people don't know that Abraham Lincoln slept with other men in his bed.”

“please, rep. grassley can't remember what he had for breakfast. he just makes stuff up and releases it at the most inoportune times.

and i agree - history channel needs more cowboy music to round out the mix and be true to history.”

“I am sick of the History Channel. It used to be good. I think it is cheaper to run videos already made about REAL HISTORY instead of showing such things as Swamp People which costs to be made.”

“But Mark Rasch, a former federal cybercrime prosecutor, said the Anonymous attack on PayPal should be considered a serious crime. He compared it to chaining a lock to the entrance of a store to prevent customers from entering. "If you do something illegal, the essence of civil disobedience is you run the risk of arrest and prosecution," he said.

Civil disobedience or civil protesting ? They are treating non-violent people worse than violent people. This system is truly tyrannical.”

“It's a good thing to fear showing affection to your loved one because you might receive taunting or worse ? Those gay parades are just like rextrek said - Mardi Gra. There are a number of gay people who do not flaunt themselves in such a way. I have known Marines who were LGBT and they would never take part in a parade like that but they are still afraid to hold hands with their loved one in public. In fact, they could not even admit they were gay because they would lose their job and benefits (DADT was in force at the time). A buddy of mine who is gay went to Iraq, twice, comes home but was still treated like a second-class citizen. He put his life in danger to serve our country and how was he respected for that ? He can't even marry his partner of 8 years in our state. They are not allowed to adopt because they are a gay couple. Our state and the federal government (because of the bigoted DOMA law) do not recognize their relationship as being equal with heterosexuals. Is that fair ?”

Why are we not pushing for NON-LETHAL ways to protect ourselves ?

We can still protect ourselves from attacks, we are still technically armed, so why is it such a stretch to want to remove these LETHAL weapons from our modern society and replace them with non-lethal means of defense that we can't blow our our heads off with ?”
