83° Thunderstorm Light Rain and Breezy

We have to have confidence in our elected leaders and know they have the sense to do the right things. Yoder has broken that trust and confidence.
What a dummy... seriously... what a dummy....
But we have had been led by a lot of dummies doing worse things... sometimes in the Sea of Galilee, sometimes in the oval office...
FROM YODER'S STANDPOINT, THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS HE HAS DONE.
I figure the Holy Water Jesus walked on evaporated long ago and has since rained down all over the world. Hell, I've probably flushed a bit of it down the stool and it has since evaporated into the clouds. Think about THAT the next time you walk in the rain.
Where's my umbrella.....
No way are there issues more important than this! Romney should quickly focus his campaign on the right to bathe nude in public waterways!
What is so wrong about this? In the most liberal town in Kansas and all of a sudden skinny dipping when it is almost completely dark has offended people? This a non-issue and thousands of dollars of our money was wasted by the FBI to investigate it when that money could have been served better elsewhere.
And, do you chastise this politician as well as Clinton?
I am not a Republican if that was what you are hoping. I think both sides are crazy. I am an unregistered Libertarian if I had to have a title.
There's a new kid in town...or maybe not.
FBI made a statement that this isn't being investigated. Heard on KCMO radio this morning.
Would this be classified as a periscope down or up incident? Kid Rock might have a new summer hit coming out (the Sea of Galilee remix) titled smoking all summer long.
Give it a break...I just think people need something to b!t(h about. This happened a year ago and as I've seen he's still doing his job. Can't say how well because I don't keep up with him. I don't think skinny dipping is a crime - heck I did it in the Atlantic ocean at Rohobeth years ago and I haven't turned into a craze maniac yet. He's human even if he is a politician. Heck we were all born naked. Naturally if he preached against skinny dipping then did it I would be concerned. I bet he passed gas too, does that disqualify him for the government? This is just so petty. There are more important things going on then making a big deal out of a poltician going for a dip in the buff. Get over it already now.
It is a crime in Israel.
"Swimming in the lake is permitted but public nudity is not allowed, according to Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld. He said no official complaint had been made against Yoder, but it was possible he could still be charged even a year later."
He's not doing his job! I had to contact his office over an issue. I am a vet and, as a civilian, the chain of command for these issues is your Congressman. Contacted them several times and the only thing they have done is add me to their silly mailing list. Fortunately, a congressman in another state was able to help. This guy is worthless!!!
That is another issue. If he hadn't skinny dipped your opinion would not change, he will still suck. Whether he skinny dipped or not, he wasn't helping you at that particular time.
Well, he's not doing a key aspect of his job AND he's an embarrassment to our country. While I served, someone who had done something of this nature in a foreign country (and I've seen a few of these things) would have been punished, in part because you are representing our country and it would be conduct unbecoming. He even admits that.
Teddy Roosevelt would skinny dip in the White House pool.
That's Roosevelt's pool in his country. He has the right to do so. Yoder was in another country. Broke their laws. Offended many people. and showed his hypocrisy once again. He is a disingenuous man.
You appear to be stuck in an irrelevant feedback loop.
Had to vote "no". I think we're quite capable of distracting ourselves from the important issues on our own. If it wasn't this, it would just be something else.
And Kennedy was a choir boy!! Accused of rape & murder. Remember him sitting on Clinton's ethic panel not saying a word.
It's not a huge deal. My circle of friends are making a big deal out of it on Facebook (I am as well) but that's because we all grew up with Kevin and have known him since his Democratic days.
Assuming he didn't do it where kids could see, I don't really care. I can only imagine how badly this sort of thing would have been received if it were a Dem. It'd be Anthony Wiener all over again.
At least he wasn't having gay sex in an airport?
The question is loaded anyway, the wrong question is being asked.
It's the damn hypocrisy, stupid!
Who here hasn't skinny dipped at least once?
A non-issue IMO and I'm not a Yoder fan.
you got that right. My response to this nonissue is Garfields answer---Big Fat Hairy Deal!
Actually, this is the first thing I've heard about Yoder that I liked. Tempest in a teapot. Why should he apologize to anyone for it?
The folks over in Israel are all wondering why this was even being reported in the paper. No big deal at all. My view all along.
A Rueters newsfeed story in the Jerusalem Post, but the comments make it abundantly clear it's less than a yawn:
In spite of the fact that the FBI was called in to investigate GOP drinking and nudity in Israel this entire party is a distraction, an obstacle to new economic grow and against millions of new jobs in America.
