Saddam Hussein was the weapon of destruction. Mission Accomplished!
Soon as I heard we were going to Iraq I thought why? I still do. We shouldn't have.
But I won't lie and tell you it didn't feel good! Kick some random troublemaker's ass once in a while, keeps the rest of them in line.
The reason we invaded was to defeat the single oil provider (Iraq)irritant to Opec and to reduce the Iraqi output of oil. Mission accomplished alright; now Iraq produces a fraction of what it did pre-war and the price per barrel post-war has stayed at or above $100, where it was at $30 pre-war. The Bush Cheney oilmen do not want to produce more oil; they want to get more for what they sell. They are in business to profit not make anything. Destroy a country & kill a million for such reasons? Sure!

I've been up on scaffolding instrumenting (seismic) many skyscrapers. And bridges. Creepy, I've got a more than a touch of acrophobia due to lifelong Meniere's disease. Milder and undiagnosed in my youth. The Navy put me in helicopters, my career put me on tall buildings and bridges often. Also inside creepy places like dams.
My brother works for Spider Staging, a company that installs scaffolding on tall structures. I have been "up" many times with him. He's fearless. He moves the same way up there as he does on the ground. He was stuck on a broken scaffold all night in NY winter before being rescued.
Pile on the off topic icons! You won't get them but I will.
LOL I could care less about off topic icons, nothing will happen with SSM before June ( estimate )

One of my staff has Meniere's disease, so I am somewhat familiar with it.

I had the usual fear of heights until I took a ride in a balloon, my second ride was in my own balloon with an instructor... I loved it that much.

but it isn’t the same, in a building or scaffolding you are connected to the ground, in a balloon you feel... separated... you are moving with the wind so it is as if you are still and the world is slowly ( hopefully ) moving under you. I am not sure I could do what your brother does easily, but I can fly, and skim the treetops while my customers gasp, and take it up to 12,000 feet and down again with no fear at all.

Still though, not the same as a building or scaffolding or even a helicopter, it has been a LOOOOOONG time since I was in a copter, not since the south pole in 76

If you ever get the chance to ride in a balloon ... try it, it is a one of a kind experience, there is no flying quite like it.

We're discussing same sex marriage laws and Jar wrote: "Incest laws come from not wanting children with a third eye or some other defect. Gays and lesbians can't reproduce as a couple so nothing to worry about there." It seems to me, this argues procreation and marriage are related.

Now, we get another story where marriage has nothing to do with procretion.

I'd contend, the reason people support same sex marriage are emotional, not rational.

No, in no law in any state is ability or intent to have children any kind of requirement for a marriage license.

I don’t know how many times you will need to have this pointed out to you, but I can continue as long as you can.

Most people don't know I'm a lesbian trapped in a straight man until I tell them.
Kind of messes up your gay twirl, doesn't it.

Most people know that is a tired old juvenile joke. Funny if you're a teenager, yawn provoking if you're mature.
Kind of messes up your validity, doesn't it?

I don't think he ever said that procreation is a requirement for marriage, only that procreation is closely related to marriage. And of course it is.

He is by implication, why is it even being brought up here? If we all agree that ability or intent of procreation is not and has never been any kind of requirement for a couple to be married in the US whatsoever, then it has no place in a discussion about same sex marriage.... period.

As I've pointed out not all who oppose SSM are straight, some are gay, and have publicly stated such.
That's why you will note that in the opening line of my comment I specifically said, "Every single solitary straight..."

The point of my comment is that when a straight person comes out strongly against same-sex marriage, they tend to (at the same time) condemn homosexuality.

It's through their condemnation of homosexuality that they explicitly announce their own orientation and its superiority.

My post was in response to someone who claimed that homosexual people do not need to "come out of the closet". This person also insinuated that straight people do not come out of the closet--do not announce their orientation. And I don't agree...

Has anyone ever said that "marriage has nothing to do with procreation"?

NO!

That would be ridiculous.

All that we have tried to communicate is that procreation IS NOT A REQUIREMENT of marriage.

Surely you can see the difference between the two statements...
