Hey christardate, the "separation" you are suggesting is not agreed to. That was the entire point of the Civil War. We have dealt with the issue of states leaving the US. A century and a half ago, Cletus.

Hey sick freeek, when people go out of their way to post homophobic diatribes at length on a subject they say is a waste of time to address we know some heavy mental and psychological issues are in play with those posters. In addition to the outright lying of the evident contradiction.

Let's stop there shall we? I doubt you are as self sufficient as anyone else.

Your attack is based on political views and assumptions about me. And they are way off.

Self sufficiency? Do you spin your own cloth? Grow your own food? I'd love to have you show just how "self sufficient you are. Did you pay for your school being built all by yourself? Did the teacher salaries come from your pocket alone? Did you build your own house and road to it?

Gays are grossly immature and emotionally damaged beyond repair. Why does any normal person take them seriously? Their arguments are a waste of time. They are already quite vicious to each other and will destroy themselves. I don't see why some heterosexuals waste so much time and energy denouncing the gays. Leave them alone and just ignore them and they will do their creepy behavior to themselves. Their lives don't really affect anyone else's lives.
More than two dozen amicus briefs were filed Monday in Michigan's gay marriage case, now in front of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after a federal judge struck down the state ban in March. In one of the briefs, 14 former Michigan Republican legislators and others in the party affirmed that conservative "values are advanced by recognizing civil marriage rights for same-sex couples," rather than harmed.

"Marriage is strengthened and its benefits, importance to society, and the social stability of the family unit are promoted by providing access to civil marriage for same-sex couples," they argue. "Providing access to civil marriage for same-sex couples poses no credible threat to religious freedom or to the institution of religious marriage."

The brief's undersigned, who include former speaker of the Michigan House Rick Johnson, former majority floor leader of the state House Christopher Ward and former U.S. Rep. John Schwarz, argued point by point that there are no legal or social justifications for continuing bans on same-sex marriage. They said that same-sex marriage will enhance rather than damage the institution of marriage and will have particular benefits for children of same-sex couples rather than jeopardize them.

"The choice here is between allowing same-sex couples to marry, thereby conferring on their children the benefits of marriage, and depriving those children of married parents altogether," they wrote.

They also made the point that marriage is not just about having children, but about the mutual rights and obligations conferred on partners, invoking George Washington.

"Whatever the merits of speculation that marriage was originally fashioned only to channel the procreative impulse, it has been centuries since marriage was so limited (if it ever was). Our Nation’s first President and his wife had no children together, but their marriage provided a protective family structure for raising Martha Washington’s children by her first marriage as well as her grandchildren."

Can you even begin to imagine what it must be like actually living self-sufficient? Have kids...Grand kids? Would you like to sit them down and explain to them that are in debt because some else spent their money before they even earned it? The Tea Party is not a political party. The Tea Party is a movement and is only going to get stronger. Better get used to it because we're not going anywhere.

Isn't it silly for you to accuse ME of not being self sufficient when you support a group of people too lazy to form an independent political party but instead use the Republican party to pay their way?

Love the Tea Bagger logic you just displayed.

I'm not judging whether The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is correct or not in it's decision.
My only point is that MANY NFL teams have changed the name of their teams over the years, so it's not such an earth-shattering thing if the Redskins change their name too. It's not that big a deal.
They could change it back to the "Braves" which was their former name.
Or, since they're in Washington, they could change it to the "Congressmen" !:)
They're being forced to change the name "Redskins" because that name is deemed politically incorrect by the progressive mafia that infects Washington D.C. It's that simple. And soon, they'll be attacking more schools with Indian names. This is just the tip of a collectivist iceberg that's got its sight set on the ship called America.

I'm not talking about the Civil War dummy! Why do you keep on referring to it? What I'm suggesting is a new approach to make everyone happy. If we continue on the way we are then we will be looking at Civil War 2. If you think that can't happen well then I'm here to tell you it can. This country is far too divided to ever come back. That, of course, is my opinion of the situation as I see it now and in the future. It seems to me the last time we Americans were together on anything was after the attacks on September 11. Maybe we need a terrorist to detonate a nuclear bomb in D.C. or New York to bring the people back together again. What do ya think?

You just mentioned the things where government money needs to be spent. Now, why don't you list all of the places where government not only wastes money but actually steals it. I'd like to see that list from you and I want to see it NOW!

Do your own research. Slavery isn't here yet, though you seem to be advocating we carve a section of the country out for it.

Like I said your tea bag theory of having people vote with their feet ignores reality.

You are not advocating for a United America or the Constitution.

What you advocate is pampering those with entitlement issues.

Oh and one last thing.

Chess is about strategy not logic.

Slavery? Really? Show me where I advocated that. Oh, I see, we're back to the Civil War again aren't we? As for people leaving with their feet (a Reagan quote), it's happening right now. America is not united and you know that but the Constitution DOES apply to us all. Of course, the progressive snake doesn't seem to agree. You are so off-base with you recant that you may as well sit down and gulp a box of cheap wine and watch reruns of Friends. By the way, in Chess, strategy IS logic. If you were of above average intelligence you would know this. One of my gifts is being able to (look through) the words written by leftists designed to augment a conversation by pretending to represent that which is not. I feel pretty comfortable that you fit that bill. And you further give yourself away as nothing more than a leftists loon by making the repeated mistake of Tea Party smears. In the end, your side will lose and America will be restored....one way or another.

You f ing moron, because not everyone agrees with your inane idea about splitting some states off into a new country. That's why mention of the Civil War is appropriate.

Which is exactly what happened with the Civil War. Only _some_ people had that idea. Others objected to that idea. It became a civil war, you idi ot.

You tee baggrz, racist, homophobic trash - get a fifth grade education so you can start making some little bit of sense for once in your retrograde life.

Yeah, like your Salon dot com, Huffington Post, MSNBC (soon to be defunct) and Slate. Why don't you just pick up some fiction novels. It's the same thing!
