The community has spoken and we have decided that conservatives are homophobes, racists, et al.

Ahh the community of 3 or 4 out of 5461 (at the time of this post) members.  Come on AC, that's not even T-Ball league.

You wanted the community to decide on Avatars.  How is this different?

But in your Avatar Police Poll, there was only a minority as well.  You were ready to implement the "COMMUNITY" standard at that point.

Actually I never got a community consensus. I got the moderators telling us it's their decision not ours.  Well that and a few people claiming I'm some kind of prude trying to force my will upon them.  But only a couple people really gave an actual opinion.

  In other words no census was reached and even if we had reached one, it was rendered invalid by the moderators.
Since this is not a democracy or even a representative republic that is the final word. What I accepted was the rule handed down by the Moderators.  I clearly stated that as soon as they spoke up with the official ruling.

You really are off your game to day.  You OK?

LOL.  Not really.  I'm tired.

But your really trying to compare apples to oranges with the Ann Coulter vs. What was said in here thing.  I know you know this.  It's ok.  You will be coming back in 7 years saying "I THOUGHT I was right back then!"

All joking aside, I really don't see much difference. I really do find both statements equally offensive. I take strong personal offense at being called those names specifically because I pride myself on being none of the above.  I really do strive to keep myself from acting in any manner that is sexist, racist, or homophobic.  I find those traits completely undesirable, yes that includes in the politicians I chose to vote for. I feel anyone displaying those traits as truly beneath contempt. That includes GW. Hell especially GW, he's the President of the United States. He should be held to a higher standard.

I had a dear friend that made racial remarks on a regular basis.  That person is no longer welcome in my life or my home. That person has lost the right to call me friend.

It's not the WHAT of the comments as much as it is the WHO and WHERE those comments were made in my opinion.

AC/KC,
   That picture is so fucking hilarious. I thought that I was going to blow my liver out. Todays the first time since last Tuesday, (when I had a really unpleasant medical thing involving previously mentioned organ, a really big needle, alcohol, and a syringe), that my side doesn't hurt. Then you post that! I think it'll be another week before it stops hurting again ;D


Capt.Carl. (who fully realized that the new pain in his liver is the punishment for having laughed in the 1st place)
The only thing I can do straight is shoot..

Hey, I know it's a full moon.

The illustrative material is rich. Kinda.

Just wonder if any of the main protagonists are in any danger of really listening to each other or just...having a go at it.

I think we are agreeing to disagree.  As far as HOT BUTTON posts I think this one has been relatively civil.  And pretty entertaining.

I can't speak for the rest but for myself I listened and rejected their realities and insert my own.

All conservatives are racist, sexist, and homophobic. I forgot to mention gay or at the very least sexually repressed. From the pulpit to the podium the psycho-sexual problems of the conservative blossom like hot house orchids before our eyes.

So I need to remember that whenever a story like this surfaces it is just a matter of time before another god-fearing, patriotic, family values, spouting conservative is outed. Check out the links to Mr. Sanchez and the movement. Are there any straight conservatives?
