On the one hand, I'm glad he didn't die because that would be horrible for any office to live with. On the other hand, now the taxpayers have to waste more money on this person.
Jerk.
What a really shitty thing to do to a cop.

Exactly, if you can wait for a cop to shoot you, you can jump off a bridge and wait for the ground to hit you.

Their argument is that the First Amendment states that Congress shall make no laws respecting an establishment of religion. The Constitution also says that things not specifically covered under the Constitution are left up to the States. Since the State is looking to make this law, not Congress, the lawmakers don't see it as being contrary to the Constitution.
I hate (yes, I used that word) people who try to argue the letter of the law and intentionally circumvent the spirit of the law.
I am late to the conversation but I think there is a supremacy clause that says in sme areas the US Constitution trumps all, thing like freedom of speech,due process of law and no establishment of a state religion.

Dog's point that the Feds should stay out of gay marriage may well be short for the reason the CA case will find the statute legal. That's called States Rights, which we fought a small war about around 150 years ago. Some things are reserved to the states and the Feds won' interfere. Family issues , things like inheritance are high on that list. Slavery used to be until it was abolished by the 13th amendment.(Gad this feels like high school civics)

Perfect! Then the Supreme Court has no business ruling that gay marriage should be recognized by the federal government and instead should leave that up to individual states.
Unless... people want to pick and choose which parts of the constitution they want to abide by...
People have been picking and choosing which parts they want to abide by since 1789. Its no different now.

Good morning, people. It's a good hair day. I even shaved my legs this morning (they were getting so bad, they were bothering even me!). So now I can go to the gym tomorrow. ;)

For years we have had phone-internet-cable with Comcast w/all premium channels...approx $230 monthly....decided to lose premium channels, so were told it would be $169 plus tax and to call back on 3-22.....When called on 3-22, the lady spoke to her superior...then came back at $168 plus tax, including same premium channels as before......bewildering?.....

In the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich (Katherine Hegl apparently butchered the character in "One for the Money")*everyone* says "those f*ckers" whenever the cable company is mentioned.

I laugh every time I read it because it is so true.
