People would have a "civil union" aspect & a "marriage" aspect (if they so desire) to their weddings.

Just wondering if science might end homosexuality, unless it is a lifestyle choice and not genetic?
Listen Mr, this world does not need anymore vile, self serving, power hungry dictators like that Hitler freak, and his genetic mutations of ego-maniacal, deranged and depraved mad scientific type adulterations and abominations to humanity.

Maybe one day someone will find a way to shrink the technology even further.

Those micro UAV's aren't what's being discussed by the likes of Curly Paul__he's talking about hunter killer drones with advanced guidance weapons systems such as the Reaper. Those weapons won't be made available to law enforcement agencies.

It helps prevent another near financial collapse. A near collapse that sent the Dow plunging.
If another bail out would be needed, it wouldn't come from the individual taxpayers.
How does this legislation help prevent a financial collapse?

Far from preventing future bailouts, the legislation institutionalizes "too big to fail."

If another bailout is needed, who the hell do you think would pay?

PS: The "plunging Dow" presented a great investment opportunity. We could use another (and may get it).

Marriage should be a private contract between individuals. They can call it whatever they choose.

"Marriage" should have no bearing on tax law. Why should anyone pay higher or lower taxes based on their marital situation, including the "marriage penalty."

Get the government out of our bedrooms by getting the government out of the marriage business.

I love Liberals/Democrats how they attempt to erase their Racist Past!!
Here’s a Short Quiz: whose party attacked civil right marches with Fire Hoses and K 9 Dogs, the party that blocked access to Blacks Students from entering an Alabama University, the party that Wire Tape Martin Luther King’s office?

Don't be so sure. Police departments around the country are already armed to the gills with military weapons and vehicles that have no sane use against civilians.

I for one, do not believe that all instances of are genetic, but rather just another form of leverage being used as rebuttal. for those who choose alternative lifetyles outside the realms of what is perceived as the "norm", in defending the chosen lifestyle of.

Selective genetics via scientific alterations, is warped.

Tough for a GOP divided between

Depends on the potential parents. And that's where Science would have a problem IF it wants to continue the Born Gay DNA Argument and Research.

The "Born Gay" theory/hypothesis was put forth by a Homosexual Scientist. Not exactly unbiased. And certainly not hard Science or Scientific Fact, at present.

If Science did isolate the "homosexual gene", potential parents wouldn't necessarily have to pass on reproducing or opt for gene therapy to eliminate homosexuality.

They could just terminate the pregnancy through abortion.

PS Ever see the movie "Gattaca" ?( 1997 ~ With Ethan Hawke, Jude Law, Uma Thurman ).

The 'problem' could be solved by getting government completely out of the marriage business. Because it is none of their business. Just like how much I make or my wealth. It's none of their business. FairTax.org
