It makes me sad that we're still only "almost half" in the year 2013, but at least we're getting closer! Take the small victories where you can--go Hawaii!

My nephew just arrived in Hawaii (to live there) last week. He must have tipped the scales.

Ysy!

I'm glad to see some equality coming into America. Over 48% is a start. I have no doubt it will be 80% of the states very soon.

You're right. Dunno what I was dividing earlier. Proves I should stay away from math I guess. Still that's almost &#8531;.

I crunched the numbers and came up with 32.5% as the number of states allowing gay marriage. I went with the 50 (fifty) figure as the total number of states with an margin of error of zero. I hope that clears that up.

Can't remember if I posted this here or on FB. I am not an official member of this organization, but they most closely align to my positions within the Republican Party. I love knowing that there are other non-crazies in the Party :)

math is not your strong suit. Didn't edogg already jump on you once for misreporting that %?

15 out of 50 is 30%

That's twice now she's made that mistake. I think Mimi just doesn't know how many states there are.

Ok guys…..I suck at math. Got it! Sheesh…. ;-)

Also, it was late, not sure what numbers I was calculating, I'd had a 15 hour day. Dudes…

Interestingly enough this is a really easy equation. I mean really simple: smaller number/larger number = percentage. Voila. I almost always get it right. IDK why I get it wrong HERE.
