Please, no more talk on whether this thread should be moved to the soapbox. It is not going to be moved.

I looked at whether to move the "political" discussion posts into another thread, but the posts just are not worthy of a separate thread.

some brainwashed obamakid came over to us with handouts and tried, without success, to get us to chant along with them. i say brainwashed because you could see on his face that he could not comprehend that we would not chant with him. i only hear those who speak from their heart, not those who chant or chatter mindless.
Ha brainwashed is exactly the right term. He's got quite a cult of personality going on. I think his true believers really must have been shocked you didnt want to join in, he is the messiah , didnt you know?

This is not to say Obama is a bad person or not, I disagree with him politically but it kind of boggled my mind that anyone would think a gay pride parade was a natural fit for his supporters. It's a gay pride parade, not an i heart Obama rally.

Wyoming, it appears that you are getting on the wrong side of some of the forum folks.

Maybe the song "Streets of Bakersfield" by the GREAT Buck Owens and Dwight Yoakum will help to ease some of the hard feelings that are directed your way.

My goodness, you mean your city lets children set off the 4th of July fireworks?!?
Why, distracted by the heteros, the little dears might hurt themselves.
We must save the children!!

yes & no. while generally just another reason to party and not specifically political, rather more a matter of celebrating both individual self-worth and hard-fought inclusion into society-at-large, by the nature of how society works, gay pride parades do acknowledge political gain. how can we not when it was politics (often justified by tax-exempt religion) which has oppressed us. so of course the braver local politicians march in our number. i was surprised to not see the Log Cabin Republicans - Home marching this year. but the obamites could have been expected. even the property appraiser marched with us. as i told one politician handing out candy, if you want our vote, you're going to have to toss more beads.

Gay Pride events around the world: A to Z!

in the world where i grew up, even my own friends would have turned against me had i tried to leave the closet back then. they don't say that now and i've discussed this with some. now they say they would have accepted me even in those times. but when i tell them i understand and that i'm ok that this not true, they fall silent. some of them when we were little kids even used the word "kike" when they'd forget for a moment that i was jewish. while i didn't hear that all that much, i can not count how many times i heard my own friends use the "fag" word.

the world was different then. it is different now. maybe even some of you who would support me & my "agenda" now might even have stoned me 40 years ago. to see the world change within my lifetime, to see so many of you rally against some lowlife homophobe who would try to stuff me back into my closet, well, not even these words can express what it means to me to see such good change in the world.

thanx for marching with me. thank you for taking a stand.

Thanks, Wags. I agree. Tried to apologize, but even the dog tried to bite me.

Maybe this one will help some of those who expouse patience, tolerance and free speech from others, all the while scurriously encouraging censoring of those they don't agree with by promoting selective use of the ignore feature.... :
