Kudos to Gingrich for taking on the media bias!

Newt spoke well. He may not have made headway for his own nomination but made headway for the Catholic GOP vote in 2012. Obama is the loser.
How valid are the claims that Romney played an active role in bringing in “gay marriage”?

I am sick to death of all the bleating from approx 3% of our country population.
1. Going to a hospital? I have been in a hospital a few times. I am single. No family nearby. I have been able to designate ANYONE I wanted to see me. No restrictions. IMO, this is a totally bogus argument on the part of the LGBT group.
2. Wish to make sure that whatever you have accumulated in your life goes to whomever you wish when you die? WRITE A WILL !!!!!! Again—I am single. No spouse—no living children. I can give whatver I want to whomever I want. A clause in my will says that anyone who challenges my will cannot inherit a thing—even if they were already named for something. Writing a will in 2012 is not a big deal. I think I paid about $50 for the first one I wrote in 1966 when I bought my first property.
I typed that entire will into my computer & have changed whatever I needed to change as the years have passed. I am currently updating it again. More details about certain family heirlooms, etc. Then I make sure to have 3 witnesses see me sign the newest will, none of which have any inheritance from my estate.
I then send copies of my newest will to EACH & EVERY person named in the will. I want to make sure that they know they are inheriting SOMETHING & I want to make sure my wishes are followed.
I do NOT have a family member as executor. I have a trusted CPA I worked with for years as such. He has ‘no skin in the game’ & will follow my wishes.
Since I have large animals, I have a list of ‘Emergency” numbers on the refrigerator so they will be properly taken care of. Since I live rural, neighbors watch each other out here & if something doesn’t look right, I will be checked on. I can count on that.
The constant whining by the LGBT followers is beyond disgusting. They can do the same legal acions the rest of us can make. They are allowed to buy property with both people qualifying—that is no different than a man & wife, both of whom are working & both of which incomes are needed to do so. They can have ‘Civil Unions’ in many states.
Having a life style which leads to AIDS and other cost oppressive problems in the future doesn’t mean that you can REQUIRE an employer to cover your ‘partner’ for health care.
IMO, THIS is the major target of the LGBT community. They want free health insurance for their life style choices, many of which are disasterous.
If I were an employer & was ordered to provide such health insurance, I would either drop all health insurance for ALL my employees or I would re-organize my company with only family members as employees. A poor choice in life style will not be a bankrupting status for me. They can KMA.
(I don't think so)
My...how that weather vane helps Mitt determine what kind of reaction to give...
Newt did a great job reiterating that traditional marriage has been around for 3000 years- but he should have gone a step further and proclaimed the reason WHY it has been around for 3000 years- so that a civilization has an institution for the healthy cultivation of future citizens. And that includes having a MOTHER and a FATHER to raise children.
We got into trouble when we let the govt. get involved in funding Christian social services. You can’t serve both God and Mammon. Since normal lifelong heterosexual marriage was once a sacramental function of the church, perhaps it should again become only that. People who want to shack up with their own sex, or with animals or whatever, can have some shyster write up a contract specifying the “rights” of the cohabitors. Leave both the govt. and church out. Lawyers are whores anyway; they’ll do anything if the price is right.

So here's a thought: If the candidates could talk about issues that matter to the vast majority of the country, the topic of gay marriage wouldn't come up in these debates. And then, surprise surprise, there wouldn't be a hit piece to be written! But since the liberal media is always moderating these debates, and since the liberal media is always bringing up their pet issues, the candidates have to keep responding to these silly questions.
It's all a setup. Liberal media asks any question that the Democrats are in favor of. GOP candidate says they are against it. Liberal media writes a hit piece because GOP candidate said he's against it. Whatever “it” is.
Lather, rinse, repeat. Over and over again.
Only Newt stops them in their tracks and challenges the question in the first place. He's not doing it as much as he used to though. I wish he would go back to doing that in the debates!
