Re: “Liberty Park Drum Circle

^You aren't celebrating the negativity in your life.
Drum circle is meant, in my opinion, to bring people together to create new and beautiful vibes together. It's a chance to escape the toxicity of this world and create something amazing or even bring people together to begin a beautiful friendship.
I'm sorry for all of the things you have gone through, everyone goes through things that change our perspective in life, but drum circle may be able to help you forget about it even for a few hours.

Re: “The (Mormon) Sex Girls Explain It All

Thanks for the open honest article. I see so much repression in the responses and in so many LDS women, through the eyes of their unhappy husbands. Sex is THE reason marriage exists. Deny that at your own peril. You can say anything you want, but it boils down to that. I don't really think anyone cares what exactly you do within those bounds, shy of abuse or force. Yes, I believe that includes God too. Honestly, that's irrelevant to me, as the real issue I see is that far too many couples aren't having sex OF ANY KIND - which leads to feelings of betrayal and loneliness that only lead to depression and unhappiness. Divorce or abject misery follows. Neither of those is good, in case you didn't notice.

Re: “Utah Guitarist Jamie Glaser

I am inspired by your story and I am going to go out and purchase a copy of your book, Hear The Silence, as soon as my car warms up and I get my boots on. The silence has been deafeningly loud throughout my life, and perhaps you can shed some insight on tuning in correctly so I'm on the same Electromatic wavelength that will bring my life into a harmonic place. Thanks Jamie I've enjoyed being your friend on Facebook and hopefully someday I'll get to shake your hand.

Re: “Firemass Metal Co., a local fabricating company

Love this! Melissa and Brandon are two of the most genuine, honest, good people I have met in my life. Melissa is brilliant at what she does and how she holds herself when it comes to the way she conducts her business with integrity. And Brandon is a pure artistic genius. I didn't just become one of their clients, I became their friend. You guys deserve every bit of recognition you so gracefully receive! So happy for you two. Keep it up, not many businesses are out there that hold their heads high anymore like you guys do!

Re: “Ty Markham of the Mormon Environmental Stewardship Alliance

Good article. We appreciate Ty's efforts to help creation. The Good Lord know's creation needs all the help it can get from we humans who are doing so much to harm it. It's high time we stopped polluting and harming creation, greatly reducing our consumption and begin recycling everything.

Re: “The (Mormon) Sex Girls Explain It All

You probably should have just taken up the offer of the 3 way. Likely you would have stopped feeling excluded or not a part of her life. While finding the whole idea not at all to your liking unfortunately, it is the only solution if you wished to remain with her while wlsi not feeling betrayed. It is a choice between two undesirables and which one you can live with. Either divorce, and end the hurt and feelings of betrayal, or find a compromise where her ex marital dalliances don't hurt so much due to feelings of her leading a double life and betrayal. It is entirely possible that she would have been very happy for you to be there. At the very least by being part of it, even if you remain faithful, she at no longer feel the need to hide it or to sneak around. That is the biggest and most painful betrayal of all when a partner is excluding you from parts of there life. When you are given only a portion of there lives. The physical cheating certainly hurts but it's the emotional neglect that hurts the soul. It sounds as though all this is somewhat recent. I'll be the first to admit I have a difficult time understanding bi sexual orientation but it sounds as though there is a physical and sexual need beyond what a male husband can provide not matter how much love you all share. I could be wrong but it sounds as though the struggle and dysfunction is over the repeated flings with women. Do you feel as though she treat do you as a wife should in other regards? Do you feel she loved you and wanted to be with you? I guess I am hoping to provide a perspective that could turn things around for you. I sincerely feel like it is not a lost cause. I'm sure you are frustrated and deeply hurt over all of this but your post also comes across somewhat in self aware when you portray the situation so black and white. Simply, how much of the post is positioning yourself as the obedient servant of God who did everything as close to right as he could and gave everything he had to only be spit in the face. Being married for 5 years must mean something but the way you make it sound it wasn't too long after last arrival in the United States that you stopped feeling the same way towards her. You condemn and act like you care more about the fact she didn't behave or do everything you wanted instead of feeling like you've lost someone you care about. You describe your motivations and feelings from the incident with the cell phone at gold gym on and suddenly instead of trying to make it work or separate, if beyond repair, your motivations and justifications are intirely self serving. You stayed in the marriage for all the wrong reasons and did a huge dis service to yourself and to your wife on par with any of her actions. The other thing that stands out is your repeated use of demand. You "demanded" she stay in with her mom for the remainder of the year it would take for the visa and not to ever see those friends again. Then you "forbade" her from having any friends outside the church. Honestly, can you seriously feel no responsibility in her continuing to behave that way. She is now in an environment where her husband doesn't care about her a way a husband should and is being told you she can associate with. I started this post as a advocate for you and largely did not sympathize at all with her but was hoping to suggest that it didn't have to be over if you truly didn't want it to be. I thought that maybe if you really wanted to be with her work could be done and an effort to understand why she gets involved with women and a solution, if not ideal, stil better then losing her. I am confident that the trust issues, lies, and betrayals would stop if you made an effort to be a part of her life in that regard as well. You felt pain and anger because she was actively keeping a part of herself and life away from you. It is easy to see why she would hide it. You made no effort to work through it or acknowledge that part of her. Instead you demanded and expected that she immediately cut that part of her life off intirely. You chose to ignore that part of her identity and life and didn't care enough about who she was. Truthfully you never really knew her and as a result you couldn't understand or acknowledge it. You expected her to obey your demands believing her to radically alter herself without you ever bothering to understand why, how to prevent further issues, strengthen the relationship, and most importantly create an atmosphere of open dialogue to promote trust. What is written in the post gives the impression that since You did all these monetary gestures and provided a living that in exchange you deserve what you want. You know it's honestly sad that you were far too concerned with how you could benefit from the marriage and how if only she did what she was supposed to, you brought her here after all, then you might have actually realized that she made a gesture in hopes of saving the marriage. She was offering a way to meet halfway. The 3 way was not her attempt at a get out of jail free card. She didn't suggest it thinking if she let you get with her hot friend then the past would be erased. No, she built up the courage to open a dialog about part of her that has been ignored and never truly discussed as something that would stop. After only incidents of anger and demands to change she knows she disgust you so she has to hide it. She likes girls and it's foolish to think that would suddenly stop especially when her husband doesn't love her the same. All the pain and hurt that stemmed from the double life and hiding things is what caused you to feel that way. You hated that betrayal and if it was going to continue and she probably knew she wouldn't stop then the only way to stay together but also no longer hide things and no longer leave you out of her life she invited you to be a part of it. I am betting she wanted and hopped for that all along. She stayed with you. It was physical with the women. If you could except that part of her then no need to hide it. If she no longer breaks your trust or leaves you out then it does not hurt as much. She loves you and you love her another girl in the bed doesn't change that. It certainly doesn't sound like the perfect marriage but by comparison why is divorce any better or being alone when cheating seemed to be were conflict and hurt grew. You both were very selfish in the relationship and if you both can acknowledge that and come to terms, and find a solution then isn't that better then the alternative. Why is 2 divorces any better in Gods eyes then a threesome? Is it adultery if your wife offered?

Re: “Rocky Anderson vs. NSA & FBI

It's about time somebody put a end to abusive and illegal domestic spying by the NSA. The Fourth Amendment reads: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
In 1973 the Supreme Court ruled that warrants are required for domestic surveillance. In 1978 FISA laws were put in place to protect Americans from domestic spying. In 2001 George Bush signed onto a secret domestic spying program the details of which even senior national security officials weren't informed. The national security state is out of control.
Thank you, Rocky.
