"I wonder if you didn't have an idea that she was 'experienced' prior to your marriage. Is it the exact number of partners that bothers you the most? 10, 20 or 25, how were things between you before you heard the magic…"
"Alright there David,
If you led a similar path before to your wife then I doubt it would be an issue for that you couldn't come to terms with.
I made a pact with myself what to me is acceptable in a fiancee' history…"
"David---this topic comes up now and again, and I'm going to tell you what I honestly believe, even though it might not be popular in our current cultural climate. Sex is like fire--contained within its proper boundaries, it's…"
"Yeah, so far as I know, Mexicans are rather Catholic and lean conservative, but I've seen the occasional Mexican hipster girl. If anything redeems the forlorn species of hipsters, that kind of girl will. But I digress. Your kids are going to be…"
"Shane, I opposed conservative to promiscuous, which is clever, if obvious. -- Everyone is a liberal in the picture. But when sex and drama start, liberalism disappears: it is useless. Shame is the word you are looking for when you talk of chastity…"

"So it's come to this... A Health Test.???
To exercise a civil right?
The same government that already claims we don't eat right and need to be told what to stuff in our faces is going to do this, right? They get to decide who or what…"
"Iam not talking about the financial aspect. Getting a driving license requires a test that proves that one isnt a complete moron. Such a thing should be required for guns too.
Some basic training and health test´s wouldnt hurt.
"Is that because motor vehicles kill far more people than guns?
Or for some other, nebulous reason?
(Pssst...in many states, it is harder to get a gun than a driver's license.)
In Maryland, you can be an illegal alien and get a DL. …"
"True. But, the government won't tell you 'no' on the car. You're not really asking their approval, by background check. The ATF has been known to do that (ATF does background checks, right?). You're…"
