And down goes our environment. The White House web page on climate change was removed and replaced with "An America First Energy Plan" to pilfer our federal lands and enrich the fossil fuel industry. Not one single mention of utilizing renewable energy.

My wife did… it was great. Delivery rooms are private. Post delivery rooms are not, but there are around 10 of them and they try not to double up. If it looks like you are going to get a roommate you can pay extra too keep the room private, provided they have the space. In our case we had a private room except for the last few hours of our stay. Because the rooms have 2 beds they let me use the unoccupied bed at no extra cost. That was nice. Dads also get a menu with meals. It felt more like we were staying in a hotel. The staff was really great and we were very happy with the entire experience.

--- Nation’s Oppressed Christians Huddle Underground To Light Single Shriveled Christmas Shrub ---

UNDISCLOSED LOCATION—Persecuted and driven into hiding because of their beliefs, the nation’s oppressed Christians reportedly huddled in a secret underground bunker late Wednesday night to decorate and light a single withered Christmas shrub.

At great personal risk, the Christians were said to have smuggled in a few strings of colored mini lights, tinsel, popcorn garlands, Hallmark Keepsake ornaments, and other contraband in order to trim the shrub inside the subterranean chamber, the last place in America where they were safe to celebrate Christmas.

Thanks for fixing the noun with the verb. However, there are still two sexes in this world. It is the way society grows, with a family tree. I have seen children who heard a story about bears, they believe they are bears because bears like honey, too. They also like the idea of bears being strong. Eventually, they grow out of that dream because adults are not supporting the idea they are bears. Anyone who supports this child that she can be a boy is contributing to her eventual downfall. Stop lying to children. You are doing them no favors. Years ago, I worked at New Jersey Boystown. The one common factor these boys had was a hatred of their families. It comes from lying. I thought they would resent their families from their beatings, but it was the lying that destroyed family trust.


So you are justifying child beating?


When did I say that? I am just stating children like the rest of humanity do not like to be lied to. It is a sign of disrespect. Emotional scars do not heal the same way as physical scars.


People line up every Sunday to get lied to.

Donald Trump is a climate change denier. As the caretakers of this small little ball in the cosmos we must take steps to save our home for the future of our species. Yet this man wants to keep burning coal, drilling oil and killing our home. Next time you get out of the city, look up and see all the billions of suns and think about how alone we all are in this universe and how remarkable our very existence is.

None of this bullshit about "Make America Great Again" matters if we don't have a habitable, tiny, little, blue ball for us all coexist on.

Leon Fuerth...
"I don't think that humanity is guaranteed a pass out of the problems that it is creating for itself. If we fail then it is possible that we can never again, at any price, obtain the kind of future that we may be able to secure for ourselves if we succeed. The technological means are are at hand. The wealth exists. The question always is whether or not the wisdom exists. In any strategic system, time is the most precious resource. It's the one thing that can not be replenished.""

Since same sex marriage was allowed it has not had a negative impact on my marriage one bit.

As far as that silly link you provided… If you work in the healthcare field you have to advise of all options and provide the care the patient chooses, if not quit. This is the most dangerous use of the cake argument. The last thing anyone wants is a doctor or nurse limiting medical options because it gets in the way of their Sky Spirit who ever he or she may be. That is called malpractice.

You Matt, are bringing up two different things. First, I don't buy there is no connection to gays and sex to minors. Last year, there was a program on EWTN, the Catholic network which shown gays who are now doing the Courage program. The program is for gays who choose to live a chaste life. It is not a program to be straight. The men have different reasons for choosing this program one said for him his drug addiction was part of his gaylife style and in order to be clean he had to be chaste. But one thing all the men said, they became involved in the lifestyle as teens either 13 or 14 years old. An older man had sex with them. They all admitted they enjoyed the sex and don't considered it rape then. I wish some psychologist would do a true study on this by this subject and not worry about the political consequences. The next time EWTN reruns this program, I would definitely post something here. On the second subject you brought up serving on serving gays. It was reported through Wikileaks that the gay community wanted to weaken the laws of religion. That means ignore the rights of religion. Do you remember the lie that was told? Same sex marriage will not hurt anyone? Well, that is a lie. The laws on marriage in orthodox churches were there before the supreme court made their ruling but the supreme court has no say in matter of religion. I have rented to gays but that is not the same thing as baking a cake which violates someone's religion.


The SiFi Channel has a series on UFO abductions and none of the people probed complained about being turned into drug addicts with a alien fetish. I think these boys lacked was a loving family who accepted them for who they are without judgement and shaming.

When you get a business license you agree to abide by law not to discriminate. But your argument doesn't make sense. Wouldn't it be a far grater religious violation to provide an apartment to gay people that will be engaging in sexual activity under your roof than baking a cake?

Are you suggesting that because "many gay groups" support the ACLU that they are pro pedophile?


The Catholic Church systematically covered up their own pedophiles. That is not a third party connection. That is direct to the top people of the Church.


I am saying gay men in the priesthood molested those boys just like the hero the late Harvey Milk molested boys too. His friend and biographer Randy Shilts, wrote in his book, "The Mayor of Castro Street," that "Harvey always had a penchant for young waifs with substance abuse problems." He was known to have several man-boy sexual relations. One of his paramours, 16-year-old runaway Jack McKinley, eventually committed suicide. Returning to the subject of the Catholic Church gay men should not apply for the priesthood. Amazingly, Harvey Milk in now on a post stamp as a hero, yet the priests who did the exact same thing are in prison.


You are putting forth your view that equates people of the LGBTQ community with pedophilia and being supporters of such. That is just total BS.

But you do realize that if you got your wish that people could use religion as an excuse to not conduct business with gay people because it is an infringement on their first amendment rights that this would have broad effects for many other people. Anyone could say I refuse to serve "them" because they do not subscribe to "my" belief system. Under equal protection anyone could make up their own religious views and discriminate against anyone they want for any reason. Is that the America you want to live in? Where you have to seek out the business that are willing to serve you.

It's not. I already explained his immigration proposal to you. It's to ban all immigration from countries with a proven history of terrorism. BTW, I'm still waiting for you to point to a section of the Constitution that prohibits this.

And your "point" has already been asked and answered. I'll copy and paste, since you don't seem to be processing what I'm saying:

And I fault the DNC and the family for exploiting their son's death for political purposes. Especially because they presented a highly misleading version of reality. You know, that pesky thing that keeps getting in the way of your emotional arguments.


He said Muslims… did he change is tune again because I can't keep up. If this is really his argument it should ban all immigration from Ireland, England, France, Germany, Israel, etc. Does he have a list?

I just can't connect with you at all on his comments about Army Capt. Humayun S.M. Khan's family. Their son died in combat fighting for our country. For Trump to attack the family is shameful, but he has a history of disrespecting Americans who serve their country. They were not forced to go on stage. They wanted to make their voice heard and they have that right. They had courage, their son had courage. Trump does not.


Trump doesn't need to run for President either. By your standard, he has "courage" every time he takes the stage.

If Trump attacked some innocent family that was sitting around minding their own business, I'd agree with you. But that's not what happened. We have a Muslim family that exploited their son's death for political purposes. Far from "courage," I find it distasteful. But either way, when you directly attack a political candidate in public, you yourself are fair game.


Fair game for you perhaps, but not for someone who is aiming to be the next Commander and Chief.


Oh wait, don't tell me you've "disqualified" him as a result of his comments. I've lost count at the number of times this has happened.


Well it isn't his gigantic hands.

Please point to the section of the Constitution that says a President cannot establish a ban on immigration from countries with a proven history of terrorism. Remember, both Trump and I are talking about banning future immigration, not kicking out those who are already here.

Much like your emotional appeal about Muslims serving in the military, if you actually look for facts, you'll be embarrassed again. But I'll wait.

And I fault the DNC and the family for exploiting their son's death for political purposes. Especially because they presented a highly misleading version of reality. You know, that pesky thing that keeps getting in the way of your emotional arguments.


I said banning Muslims from military service and you said "he wouldn't have to ban that many". How would it be constitutional to ban one religion from volunteering from serving our country. Our immigration law allows US citizens to apply for family members to come to the country and achieve citizen status. How would it be constitutional to allow this for every other US family but not Muslim families.

I admit the there is a problem with radical Islam, but you can't favor one religion over another under our constitution.

Do you think the CNA is a more independent news source? Don't kid yourself.

I'm not even going to google search NAMBLA because I am fairly certain that is a pro pedophile group. To bring that up in a topic about LGBTQ shows where your head is at. That is like me insinuating that the Westboro Baptist Church represents your religious community. But your desire to connect gender identity with sex crime is off target. This pedophile organization has more in common with the Catholic Church.

There is no desire to weaken religious freedom. What we have seen in the last few years is a growing number of State laws and lawsuits designed to use religion as a tool for discrimination against the LGTB community. Yes, you will see pushback from those wanting to live in an America where all people are treated equal by not just the government, but by the licensed business in their community. You started with the cake baking issue, then the gazebo on the shore, followed by bathroom accommodations and now sexual reassignment. You are spinning out of control.

Can anyone confirm that the Historic Dept. has ever forced the historic preservation of an interior characteristic? Answer… NO

I went to the building department first for a water heater permit and they said that since I'm Historic I had to go to the Historic department first for all building permits. I guess the Building Department just needs Historic to sign off on any permits being issued in Historic neighborhoods. But that is not Dan's doing, it's the JC Building Dept.

In my opinion...
Our group of row of houses, most have been renovated in the past 15 years and it was Dan who made sure that they all worked well together with matching facades and historic colors. The result is a group of homes with great curb appeal. I often hear passers by commenting how they love our block and I think Dan had a lot to do with that.
