<quoted text>Marriage of any type was not mentioned in the Constitution, Loser, and prohibiting felons from owning guns is covered in the Fifth Amendment.

Marriage
In 2004, a lot of controversy began to swirl around the topic of marriage as homosexual marriage entered the news once again. In 1999, the Vermont Supreme Court ordered that the state must make accommodations for gay unions, bringing the issue into the public eye. Vermont created civil unions as a result. In 2004, the Massachusetts Supreme Court went a step further, and ruled that the state must accommodate not just an institution equal to marriage, as civil union was designed to be, but that gay marriage itself must be offered in the state. Subsequently, mayors in New York and California began to offer gay marriage in their towns and cities, citing civil rights concerns. Those opposed to gay marriage began to urge that an amendment to the Constitution be created to define marriage as being between a man and a woman only. Opponents of the amendment pointed to the failed Prohibition Amendment as a reason why such social issues should stay out of the Constitution. In the absence of any such amendment, however, marriage is not mentioned in the Constitution at any point."
The Declaration of Independence has no standing in law Melvin. The Constitution does. Personally I believe the government has no business in marriage. It is none of their business. Like many things the government has no business being involved in. That's federal, state, and local. FairTax would solve a lot of these problems.

Planned Parenthood is just as unsanitary and repulsive as Gosnell's clinic-

"Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, former employee said, "It was just unsafe. I couldn't tell you how ridiculously unsafe it was."

Werbrich alleges conditions inside the facility were unsanitary.

"He didn't wear gloves," said Werbrich.

Another former employee, Joyce Vasikonis told Action News, "They were using instruments on patients that were not sterile."

The former nurses claim that a rush to get patients in and out left operating tables soiled and unclean.

Werbrich said "It's not washed down, it's not even cleaned off. It has bloody drainage on it."

"They could be at risk of getting hepatitis, even AIDS," added Vasikonis.

Both of these nurses said, they quit to protect their own medical licenses, stunned by what they called a meat-market style of assembly-line abortions.

Vasikonis said, "I felt I could be held liable if a patient was harmed."

"Planned Parenthood needs to close its doors, it's needs to be cleaned up, the staff needs to be trained, said Werbrich."

In Delaware, abortion clinics are not subject to routine inspections. The state only steps in when they have a patient complaint. Planned Parenthood is essentially in charge of inspecting itself. "

Since January 4th, five patients allegedly have been rushed from the facility to the emergency room, again placing the clinic in the spotlight.

Perhaps the actual pills aren't but the physicians services are as is T replacement therapy. Same way with birth control pills, someone has to do the exam and write the prescriptions.

10 Anti-Gay Myths Debunked

Ever since born-again singer and orange juice pitchwoman Anita Bryant helped kick off the contemporary anti-gay movement more than 30 years ago, hard-line elements of the religious right have been searching for ways to demonize gay people — or, at a minimum, to find arguments that will prevent their normalization in society. For the former Florida beauty queen and her Save Our Children group, it was the alleged plans of gay men and lesbians to "recruit" in schools that provided the fodder for their crusade.

But in addition to hawking that myth, the legions of anti-gay activists who followed have added a panoply of others, ranging from the extremely doubtful claim that sexual orientation is a choice, to unalloyed lies like the claims that gay men molest children far more than heterosexuals or that hate crime laws will lead to the legalization of bestiality and necrophilia. These fairy tales are important to the anti-gay right because they form the basis of its claim that homosexuality is a social evil that must be suppressed — an opinion rejected by virtually all relevant medical and scientific authorities. They also almost certainly contribute to hate crime violence directed at the LGBT community, which is more targeted for such attacks than any other minority group in America. What follows are 10 key myths propagated by the anti-gay movement, along with the truth behind the propaganda.

MYTH # 8
Gay people are more prone to be mentally ill and to abuse drugs and alcohol.

THE ARGUMENT
Anti-gay groups want not only to depict sexual orientation as something that can be changed but also to show that heterosexuality is the most desirable "choice" — even if religious arguments are set aside. The most frequently used secular argument made by anti-gay groups in that regard is that homosexuality is inherently unhealthy, both mentally and physically. As a result, most anti-gay rights groups reject the 1973 decision by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to remove homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses. Some of these groups, including the particularly hard-line Traditional Values Coalition, claim that "homosexual activists" managed to infiltrate the APA in order to sway its decision.

THE FACTS
All major professional mental health organizations are on record as stating that homosexuality is not a mental disorder.

It is true that LGBT people suffer higher rates of anxiety, depression, and depression-related illnesses and behaviors like alcohol and drug abuse than the general population. But studies done during the past 15 years have determined that it is the stress of being a member of a minority group in an often-hostile society — and not LGBT identity itself — that accounts for the higher levels of mental illness and drug use.

Richard J. Wolitski, an expert on minority status and public health issues at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, put it like this in 2008: "Economic disadvantage, stigma, and discrimination ... increase stress and diminish the ability of individuals [in minority groups] to cope with stress, which in turn contribute to poor physical and mental health."

MYTH # 10
Gay people can choose to leave homosexuality.

THE ARGUMENT
If people are not born gay, as anti-gay activists claim, then it should be possible for individuals to abandon homosexuality. This view is buttressed among religiously motivated anti-gay activists by the idea that homosexual practice is a sin and humans have the free will needed to reject sinful urges.

A number of "ex-gay" religious ministries have sprung up in recent years with the aim of teaching gay people to become heterosexuals, and these have become prime purveyors of the claim that gays and lesbians, with the aid of mental therapy and Christian teachings, can "come out of homosexuality." Exodus International, the largest of these ministries, plainly states, "You don't have to be gay!" Another, the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality, describes itself as "a professional, scientific organization that offers hope to those who struggle with unwanted homosexuality."

THE FACTS
"Reparative" or sexual reorientation therapy — the pseudo-scientific foundation of the ex-gay movement — has been rejected by all the established and reputable American medical, psychological, psychiatric, and professional counseling organizations. In 2009, for instance, the American Psychological Association adopted a resolution, accompanied by a 138-page report, that repudiated ex-gay therapy. The report concluded that compelling evidence suggested that cases of individuals going from gay to straight were "rare" and that "many individuals continued to experience same-sex sexual attractions" after reparative therapy. The APA resolution added that "there is insufficient evidence to support the use of psychological interventions to change sexual orientation" and asked "mental health professionals to avoid misrepresenting the efficacy of sexual orientation change efforts by promoting or promising change in sexual orientation." The resolution also affirmed that same-sex sexual and romantic feelings are normal.

Some of the most striking, if anecdotal, evidence of the ineffectiveness of sexual reorientation therapy has been the numerous failures of some of its most ardent advocates. For example, the founder of Exodus International, Michael Bussee, left the organization in 1979 with a fellow male ex-gay counselor because the two had fallen in love. Alan Chambers, current president of Exodus, said in 2007 that with years of therapy, he's mostly conquered his attraction to men, but then admitted, "By no means would we ever say that change can be sudden or complete."

As for the press, it blows in both directions. Note how Bush and Cheney were given a free pass in the preceding months they hawked their BS War in Iraq to the public. Note how the administation used their assets in the press like Novak and Miller to take out Valerie Plame.
The press also praised the dictatorship of South Vietnam as a "democracy" during much of the Vietnam era. Hardly a liberal point of view.

First, your remark is somewhat irrelevant.
My post was a rebuttal to the claim that Wilson and FDR "got us into world wars", which is true, but you express this in a contemptuous manner inferring that there wasn't a good reason for them doing so.
Then there was EasyEed's statement that Kennedy and LBJ got us involved in Vietnam. This ignores the previous commitments of the Eisenhower administration along with extremely aggressive covert activities of the CIA which were intent on provoking a war.
Did you know that Vietnam was a single, undivided country until 1954? The splitting of the country into northern and southern halves was an agreement reached by the French and Vietminh parties at the Paris Peace Accords of the same year.
The purpose of the division was to allow French and Vietminh forces the opportunity to disengage and pull back to their respective territory. The French agreed to pull out.
There was also a provision within the accords which called for a reunification plebiscite in 1956 in the South, so that it could decide whether or not it wished to reunite with the North.
To make a long story short, the CIA put President Ngo Diem in power through rigged elections in 1954. Then with our blessing, he cancelled the 1956 Plebiscite. But Diem went further. "The Pentagon Papers" points out how Diem's secret police rounded up communists engaged in peaceful political activity and imprisoned them.
But the CIA went further. Before the ink was dry on the 1954 Paris Accords, the CIA set up shop in Vietnam and began running sabotage operations in the North.
The North did not react right away to these provocations. But in 1959, their leadership finally gave the green light to fight back against the Diem regime.
China and North Korea are vile dictatorships. Vietnam is far more benign, although the communists retain a monopoly on political power. Socialists nations like Venezuela and Nicaragua have democratic elections and are not totalitarian.
Of course I knew that, I know about everything there is to know.

Did you know that both world wars were the European imperialist colonialists fighting over their spoils they stole from the rest of the world? India didn't volunteer to be ruled by Britain for 200 years.

The overall thrust of my argument is that there are always 2 sides to any argument, 2 sides to any war we entered. I believe Iraq and Afghanistan were mistakes, along with WWI, WWII and the Civil war, especially for those who gave their lives.

President Oblamer has not ruled out war with Iran, I doubt either of us will support that.
