Federal officers make drug arrests in Douglas, Johnson counties; eight suspects are from Lawrence

Drove right by it around 9:10. It was a tall and large white male wearing a white tee shirt. A cop had one arm, a swat team member had his other arm. They were walking him to the cop car when I drove by. There were probably 10 or more swat team members there.

Obama announces support for gay marriage

The issues you mentioned are OBVIOUSLY issues. I never once said they weren't. This issue relates to MANY you listed above. Health Care problems.. imagine you are denied the right to visit your wife on her death bed because you aren't acknowledged a spouse by law. Imagine you can't cover that same spouse on your insurance for the same reason. You mentioned homeless/starving youth.. did you know that 20-40 percent of homeless youth identify as gay/lesbian? Do you know why that is? Because of intolerant/homophobic parents who kick them out when the find out or suspect their child is gay. Do you know how many of those kids commit suicide? Some do so before ever trying to come out because they "know" they'd be rejected in this world so they refrain to killing themselves. I call that pretty damn tragic, too. You mention dead hero soldiers in Iraq and Afganistan. Then there are the soldiers lucky enough to return home and greet their spouses in front of everyone and embrace them. Not the gay/lesbian soldiers. They weren't allowed because they'd get kicked out of the services.(But thanks to Obama and the DADT repeal this is no longer an issue). I don't find this thread a crying shame at all.. I find it a sign of hope that people care. Plus, a large percentage of this thread consists of my fellow sane folk defending the idea of civil rights for all. It is an effort to not repeat history. If we ignore bigotry and homophobia.. it gets bigger and out of hand. Remember separate bathrooms and restaurants etc for African American people? How absurd does that look to us now? (or I HOPE it does to you). Separate isn't equal. So, I won't go "do what I do and shut the hell up already." I never will. You keep ignoring this fight.... and being "tired of hearing about it." That's fine. You have that right. Word of advice to follow through with ignoring it.. don't click on an article that has the word "gay" in it because, God forbid, you'll meet me again. :)

Thx Jafs. I don't deal with even HALF of what many do. But those without a voice need one. Teenagers who are so terrified to come out because they don't want to get kicked out of their house.. or those that think suicide is the only peace they'll get.. that's who I speak for. People like RC1997 only fuel the fire of a homophobic world. Luckily, the times they are a changin' and his kind will be the minority. SOON.

I laugh at humor when I see it. Nothing you spew is anything but ignorant. You know what is funny? The hypocrisy that lies within the right wing. When you point a finger you have four more pointing right back at you. Put me in an "angry bitter liberal" box all you want if that buzz phrase helps you sleep at night.

Your "Pink smoke is rising from the White House chimney" line above tells me all I need to know about your thoughts. Keep regurgitating Rush Limbaugh while the rest of the world moves out of the cave days.

Do you remember the problems during the previous administration? Homelessness.. health care..an economy in struggle because of a dragging war.. etc. The issue of EQUALITY for EVERYONE wasn't talked about then because that administration didn't give a crap. (Republicans: We love you in the womb, but once you are born- screw you!) Now we have an administration who DOES give a crap. And, frankly, that is exciting. Let me guess... you are a white male? The beauty of this country is when we give the MINORITY a voice for once. I am gay and a woman and that is two strikes against me (not in my eyes, though). And by the way- how's the "weather"? Liked your "coments" and "could care less" suggests that you care. So, good! Apparently you were a victim of that "piss poor education". I love that I am "shoving my lifestyle down your throat" by wanting the same rights as everyone else. If that is the case.. guess what? I will not quit "shoving" until I wed my girlfriend.

LIKE! :) You wanna cling to the bible? Then cling to EVERY passage and quit picking and choosing. Better get ready to stone women to death if they have premarital sex and reintroduce slavery.
