“A year later and this is still going on. Wow! I'll say it again, then: Those who define marriage as being between a man and a woman only are chaining their definition of marriage to genitalia first and foremost. That is, you gotta have opposite equipment to marry. Remove references to gender and the definition evolves into one about love, honor and commitment and not one about "plumbing issues". Remove gender from the definition and the meaning of marriage is no longer chained to the groin but is free to move up to the heart--where it has always belonged.”
“I like Michelle Obama. Yeah, she dresses goofy now and then, but who doesn't? Okay, Jennifer Aniston doesn't but everyone else does. The president's a smart guy who should do anything to keep her by his side because she's even smarter.”

“I have made negative posts about the president, but I don't see any thing wrong with what he did. or did not do in this case. Also there has been negative reports about him not tending to the country 24 hours a day. He is not a robot. A break now and then is well deserved. Past presidents did golf, yachting, fishing, sports, and many other leisure activities.”
“It's frightening how a life can be changed in an instant, as Mr. Benvenisti well knows. When I was nineteen a perfectly sober woman ran into me on my motorcycle. I broke many bones and lost my left foot as a result. One or two seconds of inattentiveness on her part and I've suffered ever since, though my injuries (besides the loss of the foot) were nothing like Mr. Benvenisti's.
I wish Mr. Benvenisti all the best. Our country, not to mention the entire world, needs more lawyers like him, more people like him.
By the way, the woman who hit me never apologized. I wonder if the person who hit Mr. Benvenisti apologized to him?”
“Sarah, come on over to MSNBC. Or, as you probably think of it, The Dark Side. Why do something like that? Just to stick it to Fox. I don't really like your politics and it was mean of you to quit the governorship. I mean, think of all the volunteers who probably went door to door telling people about you when they could have been home with their families. You just up and quit on those people. The people who had faith in you. You know what? Just for doing that, you''re not liberal material at all.”

“When my sister married the man she married (good writing) Christine Lahti and her husband Tom let the newlyweds use their vacation house for the honeymoon. My sister knows them somehow. I mention it because whatever Lahti and her husband have that keeps them going strong together must have rubbed off on my sister and her husband. They're still together after almost 30 years.”
“I'm straight but I'll continue to try and remind people that our Constitution protects the civil rights of all of us and does not abridge any of those protections by virtue of whom a citizen beds. And I'll continue to remind people that allowing guys to marry guys and women to marry women does not hurt or infringe on the institution of marriage in general nor does it affect all of our individual marriages. Finally, I'll remind them that it takes incredible conceit for a person to think that they have the right to tell consenting adults who they can or cannot marry. Not to mention that voting against this turns those people against the most basic tenet of their faith, Christian or otherwise (do unto others as you would have done to you). I guess the people who voted for the ban are okay with perfect strangers dictating to them who they can or cannot marry. Should any of these people swagger into church this Sunday, they do so as hollow Christians and nothing more. They can scrunch their faces in prayer all they want, but I think we know how little they respect their own faith.”
“The civil right to marry in this country has nothing to do with procreation. Nothing. The Supreme Court has so ruled. And those who define marriage as being between a man and a woman only are defining it first and foremost by people's private parts. You know, marriage is a plumbing arrangement. Take gender out of the definition and all crude references to people's groins disappear and the definition is free to focus on words like love, honor and commitment.”
“God appeared to me last night (she looks like a female Don Knotts) and said, "Here is everything America needs to know about Rick Perry: Ick, ick, ick." With that she was gone. I'm just passing along the information.”

“I don't know how I did it, but I logged in on an old account I don't use at all. The screen name should be Ken White. I don't like it when people use two screen names and I don't do that. This was an accident.”
“What Williams said doesn't make sense. Why would you get nervous if a person in Muslim garb got on a plane? The next terrorist won't look middle eastern. Instead, he'll look like George Will. Or, if it's a woman terrorist, like that little conservative snit on The View. That's what the next terrorist will look like.”
