“Excuse me but since when did a parent smoking cause a child to drop out?? We don't smoke our sons friends did. Neither dropped out but they do smoke against our objections. Friends have more influence than parents in many cases.My mother smoked I don't and graduated from HS and college. I was in 10th grade when the Surgeon Generals Report(1963) came out. We use to put a film of water in the bottom of her ash tray. Didn't work until her vascular surgeon threatened to quit in 1989.
Don't be so quick to judge.”

“It has to do with sleeplessness!! Our medical expenses are going way up with Obamacare. One doctor already has gone to concierge for my husband ($600)because of the cut backs in Medicare because of Obamacare, Our family doctor wlil be costing us almost $3,000 a year more when he goes concierge. There is also the chance that my neurologist will be doing the same because of cut in payments. That's with us having an excellent secondary insurance on the side which has high premiums.
So Yes ObamaCare can cause major sleep problems.”

“Obviously Henry thought he could.

Mary Queen of Scots(14 December 1542 – 24 July 1567) was never married to Edward(12 October 1537 – 6 July 1553). Below are the gentlemen she was married to. She went to France at the age of 5. Edward may have been betrothed to Lady Jane Grey who was of a strong Protestant background and preferred by his regents the Seymours. Unfortunately it's a tad late to get into my research books on that period. but those are the facts. Guess you had different history professors than I did in school.

“Obviously Henry thought he could act as he pleased to get a legitimate heir.
You might want to check your history. Mary Stuart (8 December 1542 – 8 February 1587)was never married to Henry's son Edward(12 October 1537 – 6 July 1553) .Below are the gentlemen she was married to. She was betrothed to Francis ll as an infant and went to France at the age of 5.Those are the actual facts. Unfortunately it's a little late at night to go digging into my Tudor reference books to find who Edward was betrothed to. May have been Lady Jane Grey who he wanted for his heir.

“The second sub-treaty of the Treatt of Greenwich provided for the betrothal of Edward VI to Mary Queen of Scots in an effort to unite the kingdoms and it was signed July 1, 1543. Mary was born on December 8, 1542; so, as stated, she was 7 months old at the time. To be fair, though the treaty underwent full ratification, and was signed, the Scottish Parliament rejected the agreement in December of 1543 leading to the "Rough Wooing". So, no, he was not actually wedded to her, but as usual, you miss my point entirely. The issue here is that your assertion that marriage is a union of heterosexuals for the purpose of bonny procreation, and should therefore not be allowed to be a part of the homosexual idiom, is a farce, as I attest, using your own Royal history against you, rather well I must say, since clearly marriage is, as originally stated, nothing more than a political tool for the advancement of one's family, wealth or power, using sexual congress with females as a bargaining tool in the process, as clearly evidenced by Mary Stuart's rather colorful string of marriages. Again, your point is unsupported by your own facts. Ergo, gay people should enjoy an equal opportunity to engage in the financial and legal union of marriage as they see fit, since clearly there is no absolute sacred framework to the office. Haven't you tired of being wrong yet, dear?”

“Nope you were married the moment you signed the paper. Sorry, but that's the LAW. The church may not have recognized the marrage, but that doesn't matter. The STATE must recognize the marrage for it to be legal. Don't argue with me. THAT is the way it is.”

“Actually Henry was estremely concerned aout having legal male offspring from a women he had congress with. HenryFitzroy was not his only illegitimate child. There was also one with Mary Bolyen. Henry's break with the Church of Rome centered around his search for a legetimate male heir. Which he eventually got with Jane Seymour. That son was not long lived with but did inherit the throne. Tchnically Elizabeth I was not legitmate since Henry was not  legally divorced from Catherin of Aragon  who was still alive at the time of Henry's marrage to Anne Bolyen.Henry had been given the title of Defender of the Faith by the Pope because of Henry's response to Luther.”

scottfxx on Feb 26, 2013 at 22:32:44

“So what's your point? If anything you agree with me on the issue of Henry, though you have missed my point, which was to dispute your use of the British monarchy, especially the monarch who thumbed his nose at the Church and screwed around with whomever he liked, to somehow support your archaic view of marital history. Are you suggesting that if someone really, really wants a child, especially a son, then it is okay to behave however he pleases as long as that goal is achieved, married or not? And his son, the sickly Edward, was crowned at nine and was dead by 15 and never actually ruled because he never reached his majority (at 18), and not that actual fact matters much to you, he was wed to a 7 month old girl, Mary Queen of Scots, so again, what the heck is being defended here? Whatever, I don't think you really have a clue what you are talking about anyway, and regardless, you haven't addressed any of the contradictions I have raised to your erroneous reasoning so try again, or better yet- don't.”
