Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson wants to eliminate the deportation policies that are currently in place.

Do you realize that when they arrest someone and run their fingerprints, if there is a match, ICE can ask local police to detain them so they can decide whether or not to deport them?

Johnson -- who was handpicked by Obama not to enforce immigration laws -- wants to change this so these people can't be deported, because they haven't been convicted of the crime they've just been charged with.

Even if they've committed other crimes in the past, they can be let out onto the streets instead of being deported.

Radicals from Mexico are holding hunger strikes, lobbying to flood our streets with rapists and murderers.

If you're a liberal, don't you understand that this could affect you, because you could be raped or robbed?

How stupid can you be?

You are insane.

However, what about Grover Norquist.
His wife is Muslim and he consults for the Muslim Brotherhood.
Puts that no tax pledge in a different light as a way of the government being able to help American citizens and make them poorer.
Less taxes.
More money for the 1%(lots of oil-rich 1% Muslims).
Anti American, certainly.
Keep the government from helping American Citizens.
Turn them into poor slaves
So does Obama.

<quoted text>Prop 8 NEVER worked and certainly NOT fine.......it was designed to strip the right to marry from a minority group all because folks disapproved of who they are and who they were getting married to........all it EVER did was deny a right to Same-Sex couples, it NEVER had ANY affect on the legal 18,000 married Same-Sex couples who married before the passing of Prop 8 and it is good that it is FINALLY gone!!!

Actually more folks are weary of idiots like you who keep insisting we call it something else....in reality it is "JUST" a Civil Marriage regardless of whether the couple is opposite-sex or Same-Sex.......the marriage license is the Same for both here in California!!!
Yawn, still can't change the definition.

The Defense of Marriage Act was passed through the legislative process by democratically elected representatives with the sweeping support of a majority of Americans. It has now been tossed aside by five lifetime judicial appointees. Go ahead and celebrate this blatant undermining of the democratic process because it suits your agenda now. Key word: Now. But please understand what you’re cheering. The Supreme Court, regardless of how you feel about the issue, has no business deciding something like this. This is NOT a matter of constitutional interpretation, which means it is NOT a matter that falls under their jurisdiction.
It's precisely a matter of Constitutional interpretation, involving things like the 5th and 14th Amendments. How isn't it?

Marriage is a relationship, not an individual.

A SS couple is inferior to the marriage relationship at every level of comparison.

Yeah because sodomy is such an intelligent way to have sex. You are disgusting. Rear ends weren't made to have things shoved up them.
You are an idiot.

#1 not all gay men have sex that way.

#2 at least one third of straight people said they had anal sex in a CDC government study (google it.)

#3 it's none of your freaking business.

It's your bigotry that is disgusting. Piss off. You don't matter. The laws are changing and you can't do dick about it but pout.

Who laughed anything off? You are a conspiracy theory idiot.

I may have come off as being a little harsh on the gays, I don't wish you gays any ill will. Marriage is between a man and a woman though, so on this issue we wont see eye to eye. I almost see it as if the gays are trying to harm the family structure or make a mockery of marriage. I wouldn't be surprised if the ones who started this whole thing did it over a 1 dollar bet, or for bragging rights.
Well whether you intend it or not, your opinion = ill will.

Threatening my marriage is pretty freaking serious ill will. How do you not see that?

And then you make it worse by accusing us of "trying to harm the family structure" or "make a mockery of marriage" - WTF is wrong with you?

My wedding day was the most important day of my life.

Do you honestly think I would waste the time of our entire two families, the expense of a traditional wedding, and all the work involved "to make a mockery of marriage?" You're an ahole.
