To repeat mats response to anothers opinion
For Carl Beckman to complain that Tim Goodwin is acting dictatorial is roll-on-the-ground hilarious. Is this the same ex-mayor who committed the city to major contracts without even informing the Council (or the public) that said contracts were primed to be let? (I guess we like to play this kind of hyperbole: If some refer to "King Tim", I can name a great many who knew the ex-mayor as "Emperor Carl I".
Further in the "pot, meet kettle" category, I would suggest that everyone look at a small sample of posts and comments by Mrs. Anderson on Follitics (say, a couple of hundred - only a small percentage is necessary) and then compare her statement quoted here: "I can't stand a bully".
Recommended reading: "A Free People's Suicide-Sustainable Freedom and the American Future".
The Continental Army attained our freedom; the Founding Fathers "ordered" freedom with the Constitution; the people have the assignment to sustain freedom. Can we do it? Don't confuse freedom with choice. It's going to take a sustained commitment to self-restraint to stem the erosion of freedom.
Approximately how big are the discs, brewengineer?
How many discs does one get per order?
Stoked as the next gay about our move dwtwn. Was happy to see a parade poster in a king st bar this wk.
Two days later it was gone. Not going to name the place because I don't have proof for the reasons for said removal.
Hope to see more visible signs of support from merchants and bars.....
Would be interested to know if the City has fielded request from anti gay protestors for permits? Or has local media heard any rumbles from area churches?
Given the new higher visibility parade location a contingent from the hellfire and brimstone crowd would not surprise me.
Tim Goodwin looks (and sounds) like a super-douchey Mike Ditka.

This is reporting or advocacy?
I don't claim to know much about the legal system, but I am having a hard time understanding how a business can be held legally responsible for property it doesn't own. That's kind of like saying I'm responsible for my neighbors parking down the street from my house just because they had a drink on my porch.
Another classic publicity stunt by the veteran fundraisers at the SPLC. Having milked the "hate group" cash cow for decades, the SPLC is now branching out into LGBT issues in search of a new donor base.
Last year the SPLC took on a simple fraud case in New York City involving a company that claimed it could "cure" gay Jewish men. Before that, they took on a simple copyright infringement case where a political action group improperly used a gay New Jersey couple's engagement photograph in anti-gay political literature.
There are no "civil rights" issues in the fraud and copyright infringement cases, any more than there are in this possible malpractice suit. None of the plaintiffs are indigent. Pam Crawford is a psychiatrist and in 2010 the couple flew to India to adopt another child, so the couple is far from needy.
All of the plaintiffs are already represented by some of the best local lawyers in the business. The Crawford's lawyer, Ken Suggs, was voted Lawyer of the Year in 2010. The SPLC isn't licensed to practice law in any of these states, they have to come in as "hac pro vice" advisers.
All the SPLC brings to these cases is publicity and nobody knows how to spin publicity into donor-dollars better than the SPLC.
Why do the Media insist on regurgitating SPLC fundraising propaganda without performing even the most rudimentary fact checks on these claims? In the old days, they used to call such routine, commonsense practices "journalism."
So the fantastic, visionary architect saved the "glamorous copper" from the "grimy old bar" ? Eric, were you still too young to go to the old Johnson's, too hip, or are you just shilling BS for a new bar?

They are. Quite crunchy, too.

"But perversion is a word with a definition. It is not my def or the Christian nutjobs def, it is just a word that means something."
Perversion - a concept describing those types of human behavior that deviate from that which is understood to be orthodox or normal.
Homosexuality is no longer abnormal, as it is estimated there are over 4 million people who are openly GLB in the United States. A much larger portion of the population has practiced sexual acts with the same sex. Sodomy, since it has been practiced by gay and straight people alike, is even less abnormal. Mr. G-Q calling homosexuality a perversion is wrong, even in definition. He was just showing bigotry, as is the norm from christian extremists and "white power" groups.
" But if you are choosing political correctness as your religion you might want to re think your last sentence. Referring to homosexuality as a "choice" is not proper."
I do not claim to be politically correct, or write in a way that displays political correctness. Blowing smoke up yer arse is the job of our politicians. I just tell it like it is, and I accept (without judging) GLB people for what they are. They are just like you and I. Besides, I said I accept peoples' choices in sexuality, not sexual preference. In that case, I was actually talking about the acts they perform in the bedroom, which is a choice.
It is good to have civil conversations on here. Let's hope Ned is taking a permanent vacation from posting.
Take a moment to evaluate the job performance of the nation's President. Affirmative action and a bias toward selection based on race contributed to the mysterious and vague educational and professional background of O'bama. Talk about a liberal policy backfiring, this is a prime example and it is wrong.
Matt... You have a point (of sorts) here. Class does seem to be a better indicator of discrimination than race. And, Roan Garcia-Quintan is perhaps one of the most confused individuals (present company excluded) I have ever run across. But, as usual, you immediately discredit your argument by blaming the "white machine" for its horribly unfair treatment of everyone not white.
Now, I don't want to stray from my divinely inspired calling of pointing out the absurdity of your incessant moaning. However, you make one assertion as to the nature of Hispanic lineage that lacks some context. I know this will shock many of your readers as we have all become accustom to the breadth of your knowledge and perspective. But, please review your history for an event that happens between 711 and 788 ce. The Umayyad conquest of Hispania has some impact of the visual differences between Hispanic descendants and those of the rest of Europe to the east of the Pyrénées.
Oh, and you suck...
I love Folly.
May the alcohol ban burn in hell.
The discs of fried potatoes sound very nice.
