Once again, for the umpteenth time, I'm not going out and getting signatures, I simply want to fully explore marriage equality. Your attempts to simply dismiss other forms of marriage besides SSM and OSM as unpopular notwithstanding.
Back when SSM was being discussed we heard the same nonsense that you use against polygamy. It's irrelevant.

I am not opposed to Poly

Go ahead... I will vote along with you

I was trying to make you aware of a problem and you freak out and start screaming at the top of your lungs

I am not opposed, I donít think it will happen soon for what to me is a pretty obvious reason, but I donít know that... just an assumption based on the people I know that have talked about it.

Go for it, I am not stopping you and will vote along with you

Some are, arrested and convicted of exactly that, some even pleaded guilty.
That doesnít mean Poly is bad, just that it has a really bad image problem that will need to be overcome before much progress will likely be made.
To borrow a lesson in statistics from the great "Rose_NoHo", more monogamists commit these crimes than polygamists. Many more.

And many more monogamists are convicted of them too. What would you say more than 300 million to one?

Relax, happy marriages have nothing to do with crime. And crime is not an excuse to deny someone marriage.

Can I have the same right that you demand? To deny rights to folks I dont like? I have a list
Thanks for admitting what you are. We all know what is first on that list. Deny what rights? The trophy is for a man and a woman. Otherwise gays have the same rights. You are fighting over a trophy. That's all.

Why not, are you not for marriage equality?

This is the number one thing you bring up on this forum about Prop 8 ( which has nothing to do with Prop 8 ), if it is that near and dear to your heart why are you not out getting signatures?

I thought this was your life ambition, the only aspect of marriage equality that you can think about.

Don't get me started! Just look at the Middle East before and after Obama.

I bet Obama's next step in the Korea crises will be inappropriate and dangerous. It's time to be tough with Baby Kim. At the very least he's cruising for more aid and whipping up his people's patriotism to take their minds off the killing poverty and starvation.

Prop 8 discriminates against poly too. Exactly the same as it does against same sex. You know, EQUALLY.

My life's ambition is certainly not legalizing polygamy. And you know it jackass. It's irrelevant to the discussion but walking again is high on my list.

Stop trying to stifle the free exchange of ideas. What are you afraid of?

We all understand that is what you think Prop 8 is all about. That is why it was passed in California, to block Poly ( which was already illegal ) That is was a sneak measure not to make same sex marriage illegal as advertised, but to make Poly which was already illegal and will still be illegal when prop 8 is overturned even more illegal.

A lot of people believe a lot of things, there are quite a number of people that believe in a magic tree, talking snake and a rib woman. I know people that think G W Bush masterminded the destruction of the world trade center.

I am not one of thoseÖ but there are some around.

You donít understand sarcasm, a conspiracy theory guy would not I suppose, but that post was not directed at you but at someone a tad more intelligent than you.

I donít actually want the power to deny equal rights to others, but there are people that do, and I want to make sure folks understand exactly who those people are.

Prop 8 says marriage is "One man one woman" only.

What don't you understand about that? Is the gender restriction somehow worse than the number number restriction in your mind? Why?

“ WOOF ! ”

If I recall we didnít see a drop, if he invaded for that reason it was a dismal failure

The reason he stated was for weapons of mass destruction as a direct threat to the US, which was also a dismal failure in finding any. I am not sure if this is the first time the US has launched a war over something that was not even true, but it has not happened often.

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.

ROFLMAO!!!

Yeah it felt good, but it was stupid, and accomplished exactly what Bin Laden wanted, that we attack some random Islamic nation, and what did we do... attacked one that was an enemy of Bin Laden, he must have been laughing his ass off.( fortunately no longer )

I was pissed too after 9/11 but not at Iraq.

Now Afghanistan is a different story, personally I donít think we hit that one hard enough and certainly not fast enough.

Remember it was you that keeps saying we need to give our young babies and pregnant mothers the flu shots because the Gov. paid pharma Doctors said it was a good idea. But I guess with your low intellect, it doesn't surprise me.
