Nice facebook page. My daughter showed me it. As far as wikipedia goes Mike, you or I can modify wikipedia, so yeah, I do question your sources. Try taking wikipedia into a professional or academic setting and see what happens. Just trying to help you out man. And I agree with you, everyone does not need be experts, but expert do exsist.
And like you are doing mike, because you are not convincing anyone other than other democrats on why your opinion is right and every republican's is wrong. You assert you have supported you opinion with facts. Well duh, I would expect you to do so. Guess what, I supported mine the same way. We just disagree with one another.
Again, we don't have to get along or be friends bud. We don't have to see eye to eye with one another. But as you testified earlier, don't have to like the majority vote on same sex marriage in North Carolina, you just have to deal with it. I will leave the arguements for whether or not it is or is not constitutional up to the attorney's and courts. If they decide, then it is what it is, till then, it is the law of the land.
What source have you shown to prove being gay is not a right?
I see you claim to dispute my source, but you do not identify what you disagree about it. I am fully aware if I were in an academic setting wiki is not to be used, but this is not an academic setting, is it? And I am sure nothing on the post I pasted from wiki is wrong. You have shown none to be wrong. So why are you whining about it? Because you got zip?

BTW I asked questions and you answered none. So much for your slogan. It is about as truthful as Fox news calling themselves fair and balanced.

And stay out of my personal life. It is against topix rules for you to print any personal information about me. Not sure if you noticed, but I do not talk about my personal life.

Probably the most accurate and spot on assessment in history, but do not limit it to just mike. It should of read, democrats.
Thank you for confirming your closed minded attitude. I see it is a trend among republicans. I think that is why they are republicans. They block their minds from reason and good logic. You have certainly put a block on human empathy and tolerance.

I never stated that the budget was the main function of government.
You are correct, its not a "function".
It is the law!
The president is to submit a budget as early as the first Monday in January but no later than the first Monday in February.
Article 1 of the US Constitution requires congress to pass a federal budget.
I don't care who is at blame.... democrats, republicans or if its the janitors fault.
An annual budget should be passed!

What source have you shown that being gay is a right? I stated before that while I am not a holy roller, I do feel that my faith in God and mans translations of His words on why men should never lay with men, is the basis of why being gay is wrong. If you really want to rehash it, we can. I emplore you to not beat the dead horse, again. I can go back and get the 10 additional points I pasted too, so you can refute them, AGAIN. Fact is, you say being gay is ok and it is a natural thing. I am saying it is wrong and is a choice.

You and AZ both alledge it is a civil right, where as, I have more than shown it is not a civil right. The same thing with same sex marriages in North Carolina. I do not care what happens in California, because I don't live there. If the US district court for California found the State of Californias Prop 8 wrong, that is a problem for the state of California and not North Carolina. The vast majority of North Carolinians, including myself, voted through referendum that same sex marriages should not be legal in the state of North Carolina. By your own addmission, you clearly stated that majority rule, deal with it. So deal with it Mike. Don't have to like it or agree with. But fact of life.

As far as your personal life goes, what topix rules or regulations have I violated? I always do my homework on adversaries and or constituents. If you do not want your personal information out there for the free world to know, you shouldn't post it on social media like Facebook, Linkedin or even Topix. I do think it was you in a few post ago that was challenging someone remaining anonymous, so if you don't want reprisal, toughen up. Better yet, don't flatter yourself.

It is one thing to say you do not feel being gay is a right, but you claim it is not a right as if the whole of America says so. You have shown no evidence to support such a claim.

I am not talking about gay marriage being a civil right, I am talking about just being gay. There is no law against it. So it clearly is not against Americas laws to be gay. Thus it must be considered a right.

If you hurt a gay person just because he is gay, you can be punished for a hate crime. This is more evidence it is a right to be gay.

Religious faith is not evidence. There is a reason they call it blind faith. It is because it is void of evidence. My opinion it is void, because it is not true.

The arguments you have given in relation to rights are towards marriage, not just being gay.
You have given none to your claim it is not a right to be gay. None. Zero. Zip.

My main point here is, you are against freedom. I would love for you to justify your stance on being gay as not a right with having freedom in America to be what you wish?
Whether being gay is a choice or not is not the question. Please show why one should not be free to be gay?

This is not in article one of the constitution as you previously claimed. I am not even sure what this is from. Care to tell us?

From what I understand, Obama has given proposals. Congress just did not pass them.

There is nothing in the link that says congress must pass a budget.

Bottom line is the last time a real budget was passed the year was 1997, Clinton signed it and Newt was speaker of the house.

All we get from the current congress is "continuing resolutions" or "minibuses" as their called.

Mike made the comment regarding "if the Republicans will pay the bills".

How does any party pay the bills without a budget?

Wow! How did you draw this conclusion? "It is one thing to say you do not feel being gay is a right, but you claim it is not a right as if the whole of America says so." Where in the United States Constitution does it say, that being gay is a right?? It doesn't because it is a privledge of choice. Show me, in the United States Constitution, where it governs freedom of choice?

You along with AZ tried to substantiate earlier in the thread that same sex marriage is the same as traditional marriage. It is not, from my perspective. Be it religous reasons, reasons of your own insanity, whatever you need to tell yourself but it is not the same as a traditional marriage.

"Hate" crimes were labeled that way to appease the minorities, nothing more. It is a crime to physically harm someone, regardless of sexually orientation, nationality and so on period.

Your examples of where being gay is a right, are merely your opinion. And as usual, Mike, no substance.
