See JonRoss, Uncle Fester is the representative from my district, and I have familiarized myself with his hijinks. You have not. During a messy break-up with his ex-wife, DesJarlais allegedly held a gun in his mouth for three hours, "dry fired" a gun outside his wife's locked bedroom door, and was accused of other forms of spousal abuse. But hey, why argue with the facts?
JonRoss, Bennett is not encouraging him to commit suicide. If you knew a little about representative Scott "Uncle Fester" Desjarlais, you would know that he, by his own admission, shoved that gun in his own mouth a couple of times in the past in order to get his way with his estranged wife. That's what the cartoon is about.
Alprova writes, "But she did tarnish the record of an otherwise decent man". You're actually blaming the woman for this? He's a weak-willed little man. He could have simply said NO. I guess this is why men feel the need to control women, because you can't control yourselves. Get your burkas ready women, they're just around the corner.
Hey Tu Quoque~ I would like to invite you to meet me and call me those names to my face.
In response to JonRoss: The woman likes the car because she works 6 days a week AND has to shuttle the kids everywhere. Her "less pay for more work" job is the only source of STABLE income for the family, because her husband is in constuction. By your own admission Jon, he can't seem to keep his company above water, always going bust. Maybe he should seek another profession. Her hands are filthy from cleaning up after the kids, the dog, and her trashy husband, who lays on the couch watching ESPN when he gets home from his rough day at work. So in addition to her full time job, she'll sell Avon or Mary Kay on the side to make sure the mortgage is paid and the children have a roof over their heads. She'll shop on Saturday mornings at yard sales for the kid's school clothes. She'll rub two nickels together and make a quarter. And lastly, she'll make sure she took her birth control pill, because she knows how frisky he gets after a few beers and football.
So, Rolando, you're in his district?
Well, well, well. Andrew shows his true colors. Hypocrite: a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.
After reading all of the morning posts, I have to say that Jack_Dennis is the only one who took a swipe at a woman based on her looks, not her ability. That shows just what kind of person you are, and I will pass over your posts from this day forward. You probably don't see anything wrong with it, do you?
The major problem I have with the article is the misleading title. It should read, "Suing for Catholic faith, restrictions."
Oh Joe, you are just like the rest of your ilk, you pick and choose portions of the truth as it serves you. You left out the first part of that sentence. Let's tell the rest of the story, and correctly I might add. "Growing up the son of a career army officer, he led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1976 from S. R. Butler High School in Huntsville, Alabama."
