Pam Sohn Opines..... And Grundy County — which is nearly all white — has one of Tennessee’s highest poverty rates. Four in 10 children there live in poverty....... I will respond with.....There were 5,562 households out of which 33.40% had children under the age of 18 living with them.......12.00% had a female householder with no husband present, and 27.10% were non-families....... About 22.60% of families and 25.80% of the population were below the poverty line, including 31.50% of those under age 18.....Your sample size of Grundy county is 1133 persons under the age of 18 living in poverty. This in a county with no industry or manufacturing to speak of yet 78% of families live above the poverty line......So 12% are unwed mothers accounting for 667 families in the county and the average family size is 2.54 so that accounts for up to 1027 children which is very close to your sample size of 1133....so after breaking down the numbers can we say that Grundy county tells us it is unwed childberth and a lack of industry that lead to 40% child poverty rate...
Ike said......This is the craziest reason I have seen yet to punish gay adults for their victimless crime of being in same sex relationships......I believe Ken is getting close to the real reasons there is a push against these new unions and it's the money. Or better said it's the tax/social benefits awarded to married couples that are the prize. I can see this because I am single without children. Being this way I get the pleasure of paying a little more so married people can get a write off for procreation. Now as Ken has stated procreation is a value to society and child credits are in order but why should you get a dependent/tax credit simply by being married all the while screaming that others that want to be married can not? With that being said there is now validity to the statement "Gay marriage devalues traditional marriage" because if I can go out and marry my buddy so we can enjoy tax benefits afforded married folks then what is the real value in marrying for love and commitment when I can go out and do it for the money! So in my opinion take away the tax credits and head of household credits and dependent write-offs for spouses and the problem will go away. Let those who want to marry marry just stop asking the rest of us to subsidize it.
Maybe whoever brings the snakes to CONSERVATIVES church will shake em up real good b4 next week's service. Karma has a way of biting back at people who demean others. I hope your children(if you can find someone to impregnate) turn out gay. That would be too funny. Just think you could read them that verse from Romans you and the other guy like so much. I'm heading to buds to get a drink swing by and I'll be happy to let you know how I really feel about you and your tactics. In the mean time grow a set and post your info on here silly person. I bet you are ashamed of your posts when you go back and read the gibberish you spout . Why don't you try Ecclesiastes since you are stuck in the old testament focus on whether it is better to gain knowledge or be a fool.... most on here know the choice you have made!

caddy said,,The reality: Tell me what's loving about sex acts that cause bleeding, choking, disease, and pain.......before my wife left I thought the same way. But 16 years of being single, fornicating and adulterating I met a woman who changed my mind. Pain , choking , using the unnatural reason of and all that has been presented in a whole new light. I recommend chocking her out and using your belt but that's just her..... And since the law allows divorce for irreconcilable differences I was doomed to Hell years ago. But fortunately for me my grandmother taught me the love of Christ and to be good to everyone so I don't waste too much time worrying about the thoughts of any church I just try to treat people with respect and do good works while I am here. God has blessed my life in all things and I thank him each day from the depth of my heart. Let his goodness in people and forget about the dogma..... When you pray say thank you and ask what you can do to better this world. I type this as I wait for my gay friends to join my girlfriend and I for dinner.....
when is a coup not a coup.... when military aid is involved. and Alprova... while I am not a Rubio fan his 8 months will be more than the 2 years the JR senator from Illinois had served come 2016. just sayin
Ironically, in the past year, the No. 1 complaint from readers who called to talk about the paper — on any subject or about any story — is that the Free Press page was not conservative enough. Some readers were turned off by the page’s support of gay marriage and polygamy and legalized prostitution and marijuana...... Socially liberal and physically conservative would describe Mr Johnson's views. He is part of the emerging Libertarian wing of the Republican party. The more socially conservative aspect of the party would be the religious right/silent majority that has held sway of the primaries for far to long. Their power is waning and it is not a pretty sight. Simply put, the republican party needs to get out of the private lives of voters and stick to monetary issues. True physical conservatism will, by its own merits, attract voters. While demonizing the lifestyle choices of others will repel potential voters. If you want a monotheistic party stick with the old guard and go the way of the wigs but if national relevance is the goal ( and winning elections) then a more socially tolerant view will be required. In order to know if you are tolerant of others when confronted with any social issue simply ask yourself : who decided that you get to decide? Are you your brothers keeper? Or can your fellow man live their life as they wish while you live yours the way you wish. When you answer that basic question you too can lean toward Libertarianism.
