"Hillary Clinton only declared her support for marriage equality in 2013. Before that, she opposed it. "
http://dish.andrewsullivan.com/2014/04/04/bra...
In 2009, she extended the State Department benefits to include parters of gay employees.

Since the 90's, she has supported the concept of civil unions that would extend legal rights to same sex couples.(i.e. marriage without the word marriage).

Since marriage & civil unions provided the same legal status, it was really just about terminology.

I don't think Clinton every voted against nor financially supported anti-gay marriage efforts.

In the business world, stockholders certainly don't want their management to openly be against any social issue that would cost them customers.

The Republicans never met a dictator they didn't like; the Bush cartel was fast friends with Saddam Hussein before. As they were with Manuel Noriega; who is still in prison. Be careful of friendships with Bushes; it'll land you in your grave or prison. They use them and them double cross them. The Bush cartel is brutal.
Who is Obammy friends with that he is giving away the Internet?

Since the Internet now permeates our lives in every possible way, it is disturbing that Obama has relinquished U.S. control over its underlying structure. Control will be turned over to a global panel, which will include totalitarian countries that do not value our First Amendment protection of free speech.

Since 1998, through a contract with the U.S. government, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a nonprofit corporation, has administered the IP numbering network and domain name system (DNS) worldwide, controlling .com,.gov, etc. ICANN has done a fairly respectable job administering the rules and standards. Its board is composed of an incredibly diverse selection of foreign citizens. The vice chair is Australian. The current makeup of ICANN’s Governmental Advisory Committee includes 109 nations, plus the European Union and the Vatican.

To claim that ICANN is under U.S. control is really in name only, since the U.S. members of the organization have worked together successfully to forge consensus with foreign members. In spite of this,international interests have been pressuring the U.S. since 1998 to relinquish all control from ICANN to an “international organization.” The Department of Commerce under President Clinton indicated it intended to eventually cede control.

While on the surface this may seem like a simple administrative decision that gives more control over this key Internet function to more stakeholders, it could actually have far reaching negative implications for the freedom and security of the Internet.”

Surprisingly, even former president Bill Clinton has changed his mind over the years about relinquishing authority. He said during a speech at Arizona State University last month,“I understand in theory why we would like to have a multi-stakeholder process. I favor that. I just know that a lot of these so-called multi-stakeholders are really governments that want to gag people and restrict access to the Internet.”

There could be sweeping decisions related to .com, such as blocking certain viewpoints or countries from owning or even accessing .com domains. Put the wrong people in charge, and all sorts of groups - such as conservatives, Christians and Jews who are targeted in today’s politically correct era - could find themselves cut out from much of the Internet.

Obammy Gives Away the Internet
and the Media under reports it

Since the Internet pervades everything we do today in our lives, this would have a chilling effect on the communication and free speech rights of such groups.

Giving countries like Russia and China control will lead to censorship. To believe otherwise is NAIVE, considering their past behavior - including recently - of stamping out dissidents.

Every week, there is another story in the news about an authoritarian country attempting to censor the Internet. One only has to look at the U.N. and the sinister treaties that have come out of it, instigated by oppressive governments, to see what happens when the U.S. is not permitted a primary role protecting freedom and liberty. The officials who say with a straight face there is nothing to worry about the transfer most likely have sinister motives themselves, such as a kickback from the transfer.

There wasn’t much media coverage of Obama’s decision to transfer control. The decision was announced on March 14, 2014, a Friday afternoon, by the Department of Commerce. When the government makes announcements on Friday afternoons, it usually means someone is trying to bury the news, since news outlets are less likely to make them a big story over the weekend, and people are less likely to read the news then.

Obama is hoping the American people will buy the administration’s platitude that it is merely a small administrative move, nothing substantive. After all of Obama’s lies at this point, no one should believe him. George Washington once said,“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” Even Bill Clinton now understands this. Obama doesn’t.

no i am not. would it matter? i know you cannot deal with facts, but that IS what you should be concerned with here...(i know, you don't understand them...so why are you even here?)
Did someone mention facts?

The fact is, there was never any evidence of any "spontaneous demonstration" that either the White House or the State Department had. So, we have to know the answer to these questions:

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
Why did Hillary Clinton lie to Congress, lie to the entire country, and lie to Ty Woods' father standing right in front of Ty Woods' casket?

and...

How did CNN know exactly what the Obama lie would be so they could abruptly change their story line to match it while they had Nick Roberts covering the demonstrations all day in the hours immediately preceeding the attack in Benghazi?
That is the most interesting question. It means the Obama lie was prepared before the attack began. How about you give us your ideas about how that could have happened.

And that explains all the other IDs you use to post here. I have to say my favorite was when you pretended to be a female illegal alien. We're dying to see Mexican Blackbird again.
