That wasn't an answer. I'll rephrase for the deliberately obtuse.
If you think gay marriage should be left to the states, why or why not apply the same standard to interracial marriage?
Please try to stick as much as possible to law and facts as opposed to your personal biases.
The law gave equal rights to everyone despite race a century ago.

You are claiming something -interracial-marriage would be lawful under the above decision?

No, the right answer is, because he was Republican. Evidenced by your backing of Bush on Iraq. He even admitted there were no WMDs yet, you still remain ignorant. I guess 2 wrongs does make a right-wingnut!

Sure was. Still have it. Maybe I'll bring it back just for you!!! Actually it was a full scale and complete model of a 20 week old baby. Drove you libtards nuts!!! Yes I believe abortion is murder but not dumb enough to get in the way. If you libtards want to kill your future be my guest. Way I look at it is less people I will have to support. One day future generation will look back on this time of the Great Genocide of the Unborn. 54 million plus in this country alone. Hitler, Stalin, and Mao would be so proud.

Why am I not surprised??
I might remind you that interracial marriage was illegal in many states not so long ago?? Like 1967?? Certainly in your lifetime.
Gay marriage is the same thing. A Civil Rights issue a few decades on.
----------
"Anti-miscegenation laws or miscegenation laws were laws that enforced racial segregation at the level of marriage and intimate relationships by criminalizing interracial marriage and sometimes also sex between members of different races. Such laws were first introduced in North America from the late seventeenth century onwards by several of the Thirteen Colonies, and subsequently by many US states and US territories and remained in force in many US states until 1967."

Thanks again for proving what a nitwit you are!!
Yes, moron , and why did SCOTUS strike them down? On what basis?

Maybe if the Election was 9/18/12, you could try to peddle your BS.

But really, 2 months before the election?

My God you right whiners are dumber than sh*t.

Obama has an excellent record fighting Al Qaeda.

Why not jump up & down & scream "terrorist attack" & then say his efforts must continue. You know. like Bush wanted to do in 2004.

Second IRS employee pleads the 5th at Oversight hearing:$500 million in contracts questioned

Gregory Roseman, who worked as a deputy director of acquisitions at the IRS, exercised his constitutional rights when Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) started interrogating him about panel findings that he helped a friend procure potentially $500 million worth of IRS contracts.

In his dissent in the Defense of Marriage Act case today, Justice Scalia wrote:“We have no power to decide this case. And even if we did, we have no power under the Constitution to invalidate this democratically adopted legislation.”

Justice Roberts wrote in his concurrence:“I agree with Justice Scalia that this Court lacks jurisdiction to review the decisions of the courts below… I also agree with Justice Scalia that Congress acted constitutionally in passing the Defense of Marriage Act.”

Yet that reasoning didn’t stop Justices Roberts and Scalia from striking down the centerpiece of the Voting Rights Act yesterday, a hugely important civil rights law that has been passed by Congress five times with overwhelming bipartisan approval. Why didn’t the court defer to Congress on the VRA, which has a far more robust Congressional history/mandate than DOMA? And how did Roberts and Scalia reach such contradictory conclusions in the different cases?

It doesn’t seem like the Chief Justice has a very sound grasp of the Constitution when it comes to the VRA. Richard Posner, an esteemed conservative legal theorist at the University of Chicago and a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, wrote in Slate that Roberts struck down Section 4 of the VRA for violating the “fundamental principle of equal sovereignty,” which, as Posner writes “is a principle of constitutional law of which I had never heard—for the excellent reason that…there is no such principle…The opinion rests on air.” The extensive record developed by Congress, most recently in 2006, Posner writes,“should have been the end of this case.”

Sure. Bush's idea of security led to the attacks on the WTC,(2600 dead) and the Pentagon (125 dead).

You call Obama a failure for the loss of four lives in a foreign nation.

Bush was a far greater failure, as he failed to prevent devastating attacks on the homeland.

It would appear that failure to protect America is a far more serious sin than a small attack in a foreign nation - not even at our embassy.

The real question, which you nitwits miss completely, is why was our Ambassador in Benghazi without his typical security team??

The answer to that is Top Secret, so you nitwits can flap your gums all you want.

Antonin Scalia Is Angry. Again.

His prediction from ten years ago has come true, and now he charges that the Court's liberals are just as hypocritical as he is.

.... this is a guy who, in a decision delivered just yesterday, helped gut the Voting Rights Act, one of the most important pieces of legislation ever passed by Congress and one that was reauthorized in 2006 by votes of 390-33 in the House and 98-0 in the Senate, yet spends two-thirds of this very dissent arguing that the Supreme Court is a bunch of black-robed tyrants when they invalidate a law passed by Congress. In other words, despite his carefully cultivated reputation as a principled "originalist," the only principle that guides Antonin Scalia is "what he can get away with." For him, it's the outcome that matters. The justification comes after. Is that true of the Court's liberals as well? Maybe. But it's a little rich to make that charge when your own hypocrisy is on such obvious display.

Please share it with us. There is no official Repugnant Health Care Plan in existence, to my knowledge.
