Where is common sense?

  • Follow Letters

California’s legislature recently passed a bill saying a young person in school can declare that he or she is “transgender” and can choose to use either sex’s bathrooms in school. How wonderful the thought that your daughter has to allow a male into her bathroom, shower, etc., with her. Have we lost all common sense and logic?

Same-sex marriages are allowed in many states and even our military, to receive the same recognition, rights and benefits as our “one man, one woman” marriages now have. Have we lost all common sense and logic?

I had occasion to ask a young “lady” who was adorned in tattoos: “Why would you mutilate your body like that?” She quickly replied, “Why not?” Well, this is America, land of the free, and you have the right to choose your lifestyle. You have the right to mutilate your body with tattoos, body piercings, etc.

You have the right to be stupid, you have the right to vote into office liberal left-wingers who possess the same mentality as you – but have we lost all common sense and logic?

You are free to be stupid

Yes we are free to be stupid but we can't stop the law of sowing and reaping. That is why the liberal voters have a higher crime and death rate than conservative voters. Their vote is a seed they plant and they continue to vote for those who promote the spirit of death through abortion and the gay movement. Both sins stop life. You vote death and you reap death. Way too easy to figure out.

Same sex

"Same-sex marriages are allowed in many states and even our military, to receive the same recognition, rights and benefits as our “one man, one woman” marriages now have. Have we lost all common sense and logic"

I agree with same sex marriages. WE ARE NOT going to ever get rid of heterosexuals, bi-sexuals, nor homosexuals!! It is time we accept each other and take our causes to fix REAL problems in this world!!

With all due respect, I am a liberal Democrat. The different political party voters ACT AS A checks and balences system to run OUR country!!

We are never going to get rid of pedophiles either, but by that logic, I guess we better accept them.

"You have the right to be stupid, you have the right to vote into office liberal left-wingers who possess the same mentality as you – but have we lost all common sense and logic?"

You may have a valid concern about the transgender issue that you raise, but you diminish that position by calling voters with whom you disagree stupid. Then you further assert diminished capacity for their choices in elected office.

When the GOP conducted it's autopsy to determine what to do to build it's base and to attract the demographics it lost in the last two national elections, they forgot to tell the base not to stereotype those groups every single day by calling them stupid and a whole lot of other things that I won't list here. If I were a member of one of those demographic groups, I would be more offended by comments made by people in this local paper than the insults hurled by GOP bureaucrats in DC.

One sometimes expect more civility from one's "neighbors."

"For crying out loud"

I wish you were NOT SO repulsed by me! What you think of me is one thing, BUT I am being very honest in my vehement request to write YOUR LTE about abortion!! You have tons to say and instead of saying your thoughts to the very, very few commenters, "TAKE IT TO THE tens of thousands of readers!! PLEASE, do this something positive to fight abortion!!"

Show me where in the animal

Show me where in the animal kingdom that homosexuality exists and is practiced. Only humans seem to stoop to the lower forms of aberrant behavior and then expect that it be accepted as the norm. Even the design of the human body precludes this act, yet humans do their best to conduct themselves in a manner that defies God and nature in order to satisfy an urge.
Just one a many things man tends to mess up but in this instance many want it to be preceived as not what it is, but what they want it to be, normal. Hell, we can't keep traditional man/woman marriages together for very long. The average in the U.S. is 8 years these days. Now we are told that same-sex marriage should be and is, by some state laws, a normal thing. I wonder what is next, perhaps beastiality. Say is isn't so for now, but just wait.

Attack the issue, not the person.

I think at one time or another, we may all find ourselves baited into a disrespectful exchange. The struggle is to not allow ourselves to react to it by becoming like the other person.

Animal kingdom - I swear my male mallards are gay - when the females leave to sit on their eggs the males go at it with each other - it's quite embarrassing to try to explain it to the little kids that witness it! I don't understand it either!

If a woman,

who considers herself to be a man, walks in a public restroom as I'm performing a bodily function, will find it's self called out to management and everyone in the public venue. If that doesn't handle the situation, then we'll handle it like men--bare knuckles!

Show me where in the animal

Show me where in the animal kingdom that homosexuality exists and is practiced. Only humans seem to stoop to the lower forms of aberrant behavior and then expect that it be accepted as the norm."? Didn't study a lot of biology did you? A very funny letter considering the GOP is the party that makes up history, denies sciences, and believes Fox, Limbaugh, Hannity, and Beck. A La. poll showed 29% of GOP respondents blamed Obama over Bush for the slow response during hurricane Katrina and 44% were unsure. You got GOP Reps claiming branches of science are, "lies from the pit of hell", and quite a few who need a refresher on basic human anatomy and physiology. You shouldn't have cast that first stone William. Back to animal behavior. Homosexuality has been observed in over 1,500 animals. Also, some animals are hermaphrodites and can mate with either sex and some are sequential hermaphrodites and can change sex. The clownfish is an example of this. Isn't science interesting? Why the GOP relies on myths and legends instead I'll never know. Then they have the audacity to call people stupid. If you did that in comment it would get pulled. Why's it ok for old Willie Z. to do it?

How many blamed Bush for all the things Obama has done or failed to so?

Commenters get their comments pulled when they call other commenters stupid. Your comment will usually stand if you call a public figure stupid.

Also, most commenters are anonymous, and Willie Z. used his name. So that's why it is okay.
