1 - They accuse the poster of using a different name
2 - They blame Bush

There's no cure for GOP stupidity which is ruthlessly self-imposed.

<quoted text> Already! 8:00am & you already posting nonsense!. First off your talking about what marriage wasthousands oof years ago. The point is, we're not talking about what marriage used to be to the ancients. What has marriage or how has it been defined since America was formed because it wasn't founded as folks always say, but how was it defined? 2nd the implication that children are as well off with gays as they are with straights is total bullshit! The truth is, a child raised in a gay household is more likely to be gay, & a child raised in a straight household is more likely to be straight. All those people doing tests are doing them with a bias to push their gay agenda &, with limited time spans for limited studies. We have life as far as ones mind can travel backwards to prove my point. Question, if bring gay is normal, why don't straight kids pray to be gay & commit suicide when they realize they're not?
You wouldn't know the truth if it bit you in the ass. Marriage is not the same as it was when this country was founded. Under the rule of coverture legally, upon marriage, the husband and wife were treated as one entity. In essence, the wife's separate legal existence disappeared as far as property rights were concerned. This has largely disappeared and wives have equal rights to buy and sell property and to enter into contracts independent of their spouses.
Children raised in gay and lesbian households are not more likely to turn out homosexual; it's how you were born, not how you were raised.

These are recognized medical and psychiatric groups who are not furthering any agenda but examine the data with an unbiased eye unlike right wing groups like the FRC.
Both heterosexuality and homosexuality are normal according to the American Psychological Association. Gay youth commit suicide in larger numbers because of bullying by kids who've been raised by ignorant bigots like you.

<quoted text> You have all the same rights whether you're gay or not &, gays even have a few more out of the guise of equality, but let me get this correct. Your plans are to rewrite the law, the Bible, & the definition of marriage, all to satisfy gay folks yearning to feel normal. Let me guess, you're Christian also!
Wrong again stupid! I have friends who are in same sex relationships and legally married in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and if one of them were to pass away the surviving spouse would not be entitled to survivor benefits under current law and any property passed on under their wills would be taxed at a higher rate than if they were in a heterosexual marriage.
The Bible is irrelevant, the Constitution is the ruling document in this country and it says that all citizens enjoy equal rights and protections under the law. Pushing for marriage equality isn't changing the law cretin, it's pushing for enforcing it to cover all citizens, not just the ones that morons like you approve of.
Just what special rights do gays and lesbians have you goddamned liar?

That's the problem with gay marriage. Once the definition is changed to "include" gays, it would "exclude" someone else.
My guess is pleuralists would be next demanding multiple wives under the new definition.
Who's to say their alternate lifestyle shouldn't be included too?
The only one's practicing plural marriage are fundamentalists Mormons for whom women are property to be doled out to the more favored males in the group. No one else is advocating for this.

And those advocating gay marriage did not start their crusade until 1993. Still does not address the original posters point, but you already knew that .. oh ignorant one.

So to further look into your statement, you believe that gays deserve equal treatment but Mormons do not. Interesting how your thirst for equality only extends to your group of choice.

I bet you still believe in Santa claus & the Easter bunny! I thought the first rule of being liberal was believe none of what you hear & some of what you see! Maybe not. I might be mistaking that phrase with my own logic. Again, why don't straight kids commit suicide because they've prayed to be gay, but God didn't answer? This is a common story amongst gays, so answer that. Why is gay taboo in almost everywhere in the world? You wouldn't be stupid enuff to believe that the world is wrong & you & the few are right would you? The Bible has nothing to do with it when it doesn't cater to your agenda. You were just on here a week ago arguing that this country was founded on Christian values now the Bible has nothing to do with it. You're talking about rights under marriage laws stupid, not the meaning of what marriage meant, because you know like I know it meant the same damn thing, or was your coveted forefathers marriages just legal contacts to ensure if the husband died , his spouses father got the inheritance? You keep believing think tanks & govt alphabet soup. They all lie to push their agenda. That's what the PR department is for idiot!

You are a Bozo. Your "gay friends" (you sure are an odd duck too) are seeking to change the definition of marriage under the guise of equal rights. You start your argument with a false premise. The founders had no intent of making special provisions for you sick mental, disgusting people.

You far left extremists always coin things dishonestly. For example, you used to say Republicans wanted to cut Social Security when in reality it was simply a smaller "increase". A lie.

As far as special rights, those that do not honor making a circus of marriage feel that you could just marry your brother to obtain government benefits. The government created these benefits to help families with the financial burden of bringing up children.

As far as wills go, you can leave whatever you want to whomever you want. Gays and people like you should not be getting married in the first place, so your argument is bogus.

You far left extremists always lie and to stretch the truth.

You called NJ Raider a liar, but I don't see a lie in his posting.

Only a low life person like you calls a person a liar so easily.

Back up your claim, lowlife. Point out the part where NJ Raider lies and prove the lie with some hard evidence (link) of law.

Otherwise, get lost and quit wasting our time with your moronic morning posts, little Hitler boy.

As for what rights do gays have that single couples don't have. First they can put their gays lovers ontheir insurance while single couples can not. Second, they have extra laws that carry stiffer penalties if a gay claim that a straight person with whom they've got into a confrontation with was fighting because they were gay. They also have the right to make life or death decisions inthe case their lover is on life support. That just 3, but I'm quite sure there's plenty more. Gay + gay = more gay, simple arithmetic! Evidence, since this gay shit took the forefront, we have preteens claiming to be gay. Barely old enuff to cross the street by themselves, but your type continue to try & empower them to make decisions on their sexual preference. Now who's logic sounds delusional!

Hopefully, things will get just bad enough? Nice, Carol admits to wanting the nation to tank just because she hates the black man in the White House.

Meanwhile every segment of the economy is improving and we're not bogged down in any new wars. By the end of Obama's second term perhaps the economy will be back to where it was when W took office. Amazing that the bad decisions of BushCo set the nation back so far.

Both the number of unemployed persons, at 11.7 million, and the unemployment rate, at
7.6 percent, were little changed in March.(See table A-1.)

Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (6.9 percent),
adult women (7.0 percent), teenagers (24.2 percent), whites (6.7 percent), blacks
(13.3 percent), and Hispanics (9.2 percent) showed little or no change in March. The
jobless rate for Asians was 5.0 percent (not seasonally adjusted), little changed from
a year earlier.(See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)

In March, the number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was
little changed at 4.6 million. These individuals accounted for 39.6 percent of the
unemployed.(See table A-12.)

The civilian labor force declined by 496,000 over the month, and the labor force
participation rate decreased by 0.2 percentage point to 63.3 percent. The employment-
population ratio, at 58.5 percent, changed little.(See table A-1.)
