Barack Obama, our next President

they might not know anyway. i think the Obama administration has been injecting his name into every history book and rewriting events as if he was there and not born in Kenya.

Conservative justices stress federal overreach in gay marriage case
""A majority of Supreme Court justices expressed concern about a federal law that excludes same-sex couples from marriage in the court's second gay marriage case in history on Wednesday. The probing questions from both wings of the court suggest the law could be struck down in a victory for the gay rights movement, just a day after it appeared unlikely the court would decide the Proposition 8 California case in a way that affirmed gay marriage.
At the arguments, the court's conservative leaning justices asked pointed questions about whether the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act intrudes into states' traditional right to regulate marriage, while the more liberal justices seemed amenable to the argument that DOMA discriminates against gay people and was passed with the intention of excluding an unpopular group. The law prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages even in the nine states and District of Columbia that allow them.
Key swing vote Anthony Kennedy, who has written two landmark opinions upholding gay rights, seemed unconvinced by the argument advanced by attorney Paul Clement that DOMA defines marriage as only between opposite-sex couples to avoid confusion. Clement said that the federal government has an interest in "uniformity," and passed the law to avoid having to treat same-sex couples differently based on whether they live in states that allow gay marriage or not. But Kennedy pointed out that DOMA excludes gay couples from marriage in more than 1,100 federal statutes and laws, which has a substantial impact on the "day to day life" of gay couples and their children. He said the law does not provide uniformity because it affects "only one aspect of marriage."
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg interjected that excluding married couples from sick leave, tax benefits, Social Security survivor benefits, and hundreds of other federal benefits and obligations relegates same-sex couples to a "skim milk marriage," that is substantially worse than what heterosexual couples have access to.
Kennedy joined with conservative colleagues Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito in asking tough questions about whether the federal government was overreaching with the statute. Kennedy said DOMA did not seem to recognize states's "historical" responsibility for marriage and said he thinks the central question of the case is whether the federal government has the authority to regulate marriage.""

You nitwits are on the verge of losing another of your social hatred issues!!~
I'm lovin' it!!
Seems like they are saying it's a state's right problem. HAHAHAHA!!! Now if they uphold prop 8 it will be returned to the states. Let me be clear. The government has no business in the marriage business.(federal,state, or local) Let me also be clear. You can marry your dog as far as I'm concerned.

How does the GOP somehow inherits the demokkkRats extremely racist history you moron?
Well the bstart of the switch occurred when Lincoln was president during the Civil War. The inflicting policies of the north & the south swayed alot of who was against the war to the republican side. It later continued in the 1960s during the civil rights movement where the change took full swing. Basically again the contrast of the north & the south led to a full party shift with the southern republicans turning democrats & ago forth & so on... You ain't saying nothing slick to a can of oil! Now you answer a question. What was the white flight movement?

What a good little dittohead:

LIMBAUGH: She was talking about contracts, folks, just so you understand. And we all are equal in the ability to make contracts. Everybody can contract with a member of the opposite sex to marry them. But her point was that if same-sex fits the bill of the contract, then everything fits the bill. And at some point who's to say that you cannot have sex with a child...some point.

A majority of the Supreme Court justices delivered a beating to the Defense of Marriage Act during oral arguments Wednesday, signaling a positive outcome for marriage equality.

The four liberal-leaning justices and Justice Anthony Kennedy appeared deeply skeptical that the federal government has legal justification for treating gay and straight couples unequally. They seemed inclined to overturn Section 3 of the 1996 law, which prohibits federal recognition of same-sex marriage and thereby denies benefits to gay and lesbian couples even if they are legally wed in their states.

In his line of questioning, Kennedy, who has a track record in favor of gay rights, repeatedly contended that the federal government had exceeded its constitutional authority.

Costs to defend the Defense of Marriage Act have spiraled out of control over the past two years, as the case wound its way to the Supreme Court.

The Republican-controlled House of Representatives is paying the legal bills, which have accumulated to six times as much as originally anticipated.

$3 million has been authorised for the defense, compared to the initial $500,000.
