Sarcasm doesn’t come across very well on a medium such as this one. If indeed your politically incorrect comment was meant as such.

Can you imagine how supercilious, how inane, how utterly crass and insulting an
article and comments - and the attitudes to match—would strike any halfway
intelligent person living in dire poverty and stress anywhere else in the world but
the spoiled, self-centered United States?

With gays and lesbians being about 3 percent of the population, how does he get a good measure of how many in what cities?  He should disclose his research criteria better.

I respect Malcolm X’s viewpoint however when we take into account the human condition and what drives a person we find that whatever system is in we’ll get abuse, torture, war, famine, poverty.
It\s our nature to be despots.
A leader might be doing fine for awhile but then corruption sets in.
We are prone to it. Free will dictates it.
UNLESS we brainwash every human to make them robots.

SarcastiCanuck’s comment isn’t as politically incorrect as it is simply stupid. And revealing.

Ha—SLC. I hate that boring-ass city, but I believe it. One time, while looking for a bar, I ended up sipping 3% beer with a friend and then we happened to look around in the dimly lit place and we were surrounded by a bunch of guys gazing into each other’s eyes.

I say way to go, gays! Fight against that repressive hateful Mormon culture.

Keep swinging Robert Scheer.

1) ‘‘Now make me do what I promised in the campaign.’‘
Don’t you just despise a political system that says this?

2) Why is Obama a trickle down capitalist?
El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) said there are two kinds
of slaves: the house slave, who does the master’s bidding,
and the field slave who causes trouble for the master.

3) I am confident that when our predatory capitalist system
devours itself—another Great Depression (not just
a Great Recession), then and only then will there
be real change (no pain, no gain). Keep the faith.

How about a survey on the 15 cities with the most rich,single,heterosexual women with big busts.Now thats a demographic that interests me.

Am I the only person bothered by such a label. Do we compile lists of the most heterosexual cities, or the whitest cities? Nitpicking, perhaps? Perhaps not.

At any rate I didn’t open the link.
