Barack Obama, our next President

Abortion mentioned in the Constitution?
Homosexual marriage mentioned in the Constitution?
Okay Galt here's the opinion of Harry Blackmun on Roe v Wade;
State criminal abortion laws that except from criminality only life-saving procedures on the motherís behalf, and that do not take into consideration the stage of pregnancy and other interests, are unconstitutional for violating the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
The Due Process Clause protects the right to privacy, including a womanís right to terminate her pregnancy, against state action.
So there's your constitutional justification.
As for same sex marriage the crux of the matter is the 14th Amendment that guarantees all citizens enjoy equal rights and protections under the law. Since marriage is by its very nature a civil legal contract that gives both legal obligations and advantages then to deny it to working, taxpaying citizens because of their sexual orientation is unconstitutional.
As for either abortion or marriage being specifically mentioned in the Constitution, they're covered under the 9th Amendment;
Amendment IX
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Liar.
The prosecution's star witness who was on the phone at the time of the confrontation said she believed Trayvon threw the first punch.

So, no, I'm not making up anything. You're just still in denial.
Like you were about a fellow libertarian making a comparison of the fall of Rome with where we're headed.

You sure you're a libertarian?

If you think that Fenny/Eed/shinnin's, etc., vulgarities are more acceptable than talk of toe kissing because they're about rape and the degradation of women fantasies with Drano, Ariel Castro's abortion procedures, and puerile insults, you're as psychotically warped as they are.
Retardicans hate sex talk, makes them queazy. They're more comfy with shinningerections homoerotic fantasies about squeezing his pinhead into a condom, wishing John Kerry's wife to die of cancer, disrespecting the President of the United States...

Walmart is inevitable and IMO a good thing. The whole retail/service landscape is changing. I'd be willing to bet there are more small businesses in the US now than at any other time in our history. The internet has brought entrepreneurship to the masses. Brick and mortar businesses will be swallowed by the big guys. Maybe as Americans we can finally give up shopping as a national pastime.
Don't tell them that. I happened to mention the other day that people in the near future won't go shopping. That the house will automaticly reorder stuff as you use it. That all shopping will be home delivered. The libtards on here jumped on me like a pork chop bone at a pig pickin'.

<quoted text>Now tell us about the little druggie Trayvon that was kicked out of his mothers house, as well as school for having drugs and burglary tools in his locker you idiot and the More than 2,000 photos from Trayvon's phone were not shown to defense attorneys?
Evidence hidden from Zimmerman attorneys by the prosecution, grounds for a mistrial had Zimmerman lost, including pictures of underage naked girls pedophilia, images showing piles of jewelry on Martin's bed and photos of Martin blowing smoke??
AND.. what about other items taken from the child's phone including text-message discussions of drugs and pictures of a gun and marijuana plants you idiot??
Hell you idiots still lost the Not Guilty decision. hiding evidence from the prosecution you idiot..
It's the culture...
Of course, the tragedy is he could have gotten his life turned around.

But this post should resolve any confusion on the left about Trayvon' sainthood.

I don't quite follow with the fifteen-year-old comment, but then I have a little trouble following your broken English fairly often. Glad you admit that it's all about "libtards" versus flackdom and has regressed to the rants of junior high bullies...just as long as topix has the final SAT, we'll all be SATisfied, I'm sure.

Well, there's a shortage of women in China; where will those Chinese men mate? Do you think they'll all become gay out of necessity? Perhaps they'll have to go check out svetlana.com like the Americans do.

Gold teeth, tattoos, and facial jewelry are tickets to unemployment.

The truth, whether you like it or not.
Appearances count.
You don't do much shopping do you? These days, you would be hard pressed to find a waitress or young store clerk without a tattoo or facial jewelry. Granted, I haven't seen anyone with gold teeth but, it seems to me, people are not judged on their outward appearances any longer.

Personally, I think it was a mistake for Trayvon's parents to sign a consent form for him to have a tattoo, let alone two but that is not Trayvon's fault. He was seventeen!!! Seventeen year olds do not always act rationally. Who knows, perhaps Trayvon would have joined the military at eighteen and matured. Despite the fact that I believe his actions contributed to his death, it makes it no less a tragedy. He had his whole life ahead of him.

Would you agree with someone who killed your daughter because he thought she looked like she may be smoking pot?

Do all the black young men in the cities deserve to be murdered by each other?
The disintegration of the family among blacks and fatherless young boys has created a generation of angry young black men.
Unless black leaders start speaking out about the problems in their own backyard, it's never going to end.
Obama tried years ago. But Jesse Jackson didn't cover his microphone and was heard saying to someone sitting beside him Obama needed to be neutered.
Therein lies the problem.
Black seems a recurring idea in your ramblings
President Obama is Black
Trayvon Martin was Black
seems an issue on which you have problems?

If you follow the thread racism seems to dominate right wing posts.
They feel entitled to the presidency and now seem lost.
