“When it comes to Sin & Salvation, I always saw God acting as a mafia boss. Here's the analogy: Say you own a store, and a guy with a shotgun walks into your store, and says "nice place you got here!....... be a shame if something happened to it. But if you give me $50 a week, I'll make sure nothing bad happens".”

“The only difference he gives it to you for free all you have to do is ask. Would you let a group of people come into your home not follow your rules and do as they please? God won't allow it his home. But rest assured there will be people thrown into a Lake just with fire instead of water!”
“I live in the New Jersey Suburbs. There's a bus that will take me into New York City in one hour and 5 minutes about 200 feet from my doorstep. However, I prefer to take the train (NJ Transit) into the city, but the train station is 15 minutes away by car. Both get me to the city and the airports. I never have to worry about the ridiculous parking fees, or driving in Manhattan traffic.”
“Florida politicians worry more about what they think gays might do than actual things like kids accidentally killing grandpa with an AK-47 semi-auto rifle at a family picnic like what happened recently.
Massachusetts & New York may have marriage equality, however the only bad thing that happens here is excessive taxes.”
“The percentage of those who seek GRS is so small that even some health insurance companies are willing to offer it, mainly because the cost to them is so marginal compared to other medical conditions.
I am transgender, and yet I have no interest in surgeries. I'm happy being me.”
“The problem with your statement is that it implies a "they" , meaning the government. ....and which government is that? This is a local police department that is harrassing people, not an Orwellian government based in DC.”

“Actually it applies at the federal and state level. Patriot Act. NDAA, judicial system at both levels have been watering away probable cause, the fifth amendment, etc.”
“I agree about your first statement. We are a century or two behind Europe. I've been on the ICE in Germany once, and a bunch of trains around London. However, I've also ridden the Acela quite a few times because I live in New Jersey. It's good, but it still needs infrastructure improvement. I rode the Amtrak Cardinal from Indianapolis to DC, sleeper car and all, and I enjoyed the scenery.”
“I always wondered what goes on up there.
Say, how was the train ride? I love trains.”

“well according to a friend of mine who lives up there it's much like the wild west.”

“Actually not bad -- I love trains too....but the US of A train strategy is 21st technology leading us right into the 1930s...why we never invested in high speed train travel I'll never understand. Amtrack stands at the mercy of BSNF -- who owns the tracks and now with all the oil shipments out of ND -- the Empire Builder is mostly delayed.”
“GTFO!....are you serious?
If so, that's awesome!”

In his opinion striking down Pennsylvania’s gay marriage ban, U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III may have just taken the cake. Jones, a Republican endorsed by Rick Santorum, walks us lucidly through the granular legal details of equal protection and due process. It’s an impressive analysis, thorough and thoughtful—but the real gut-punch comes in Jones’ peroration, as the judge places his ruling in the broader historical context of civil rights in America:”
