Ok. So why doesn't he explain WHY he "chose the gay lifestyle" ?

Who cares if he's gay. So is Barney Frank. I don't know why this is such news, the fact that he's gay has been out for years.

The real question is when Republicans are going to realize his sexuality is no big deal. If they hadn't been making the fuss about gays attacking America, the whole flap would be unremarkable. Oh, but there is that little thing about mostly-naked pix on the internet. Gay or straight, a lot of Americans don't like that.

So, by you're definition, the only reason men are gay is because they were molested. Well, I wasn't molested and I'm as GAY as they come. Guess your moronic reasoning falls apart when it runs up against the truth now doesn't it...

Why in the hell are these Reich-wing bigots such self-loathing hater-mongers

Schadenfreude - Houston's KPRC Hate monger BUSTED

Needless to say,- no debate yesterday!

Conservative Radio Host Accused of Hit and Run at Gay Bar

"Houston police are investigating claims that a conservative radio host fled the scene after hitting a parked car at a popular local gay bar.

Although police initially declined to press charges against Michael Berry, at least two witnesses have come forward and video evidence places him at the club around the time of the accident.

"Videos don't lie," T.C.'s Show Bar bouncer Tuderia Bennett, the victim of the hit and run, told KPRC. "They don't paint pictures that don't exist."

The video shows a man who looks like Berry entering the bar while men in drag performed nearby. He ordered a beer and went to the bathroom on at least two occasions.

After leaving the bar at around 11 p.m. on Jan. 31, Berry allegedly backed his black Chevrolet Tahoe up 70 feet before smashing into Bennett’s Volkswagen Passat.

Bennett told police that he clearly saw Berry behind the wheel, but they refused to file charges.

"I'd say that's the government at work," he said. "I mean that's corruption at its best."

"You know, a hit and run is a criminal, whether or not you're an average individual or somebody who has his political pull that he does," Bennett added in an interview with KHOU.

Berry, a former Republican city councilman, suggested on his radio show on Thursday that he had been framed by his "enemies."

"I've always said when you do what I do, the way I do it, you make enemies," he said. "When you poke your finger in as many people's eye as I do every day, you make enemies," adding that they will "will accuse you of most anything."

"You have to trust that in the end, the system works itself out, that there are checks and balances, there are people who will verify. But you also recognize that there are some people who want you to be crushed. There's some people who hate you. There are some people who privately would benefit from you not being on the air."

But Bennett believes that Berry is behind a cover up.

"If you're going to stand up and say anti-gay things and be conservative and be Mr. Good Guy, and then when something happens that points you out and puts you in a place with the exact business that you aim to shut down, it kind of makes it seem like I need this to go away and I need it to go away quickly," he said.

I remember a famous case a few years ago (some of you here may also), where a male police officer, married to a woman, and with kids, began having a sexual relationship with a young openly gay college student.

After a fight between them, the teenage college student threatened to tell the cop's wife and commanding officer about the affair. Soon after, the teenager was found decapitated on campus.

The married cop with whom he was having a sexual relationship with, was convicted in the decapitation of the gay teenager, and sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole.

Are you out of your mind? I know a lot of gay people and they are NOT gay because anyone molested them. They are gay because that is their orientation.

You couldn't be more ignorant.

Been gay? Don't you mean "being" gay?

The Mexican immigrants lawyer says his visa is NOT expired. Thus he is not an illegal alien. Did you even read the article?

There is no such thing as an "undocumented immigrant", just like there's no such thing as an "undocumented pharmacist". Illegal aliens are illegal aliens, and most are certainly documented -- with false documents. Gee, more crime on their part.

I was born in Brooklyn, and have lived in the U.S. all my life. While I have visited a foreign country a few times, I have never entered a foreign country illegally. I have almost made sure I had the necessery offical legal documents when visiting a foregin country.

Why don't we just toughen the law to make entering the U.S. illegaly a feloney with a minimum penalty 20 years in prison, and a maximum penalty of life in prison or the death penalty ? That would certainly dissuade a lot of people from breaking the law.

What is the POINT of members of congress arguing and arguing over immigration lws, finally reaching a compromise and passing the immigration bills, and then they are ignored with no penalty ?! What's the point ?! It doesn't make sense !

Pass new, tougher immigration laws with maximum penalties of life in prison or death.

I just moved to Arizona 6 weeks ago.

Interestingly enough, just a little while ago I saw this Sheriff on the local news offically announcing to voters for the first time that he is gay, has done nothing wrong, and will continue his campaign for congress.

Thank you rebel, English language is the only issue you are a little ahead of me. On the contrary, it has been established that this person over stayed his visa. Again, feel free to call people without documents whatever you want to tell them, but don't try to teach me how I should refer to them.
