You are a twisted fake Riizzoto boi. I've seen what this thread thinks about you ... lol you have no room to talk you short little fat bo, and this "works" just fine for me no matter what you say. Now go away, I'm going to enjoy my day as a Vet.
You're pickin' trade up on the street like that. That's nowhere. I mean, you gotta get yourself some kind of management. You need my friend O'Daniel. He operates the biggest stable in town, in fact, in the whole god-damned Metropolitan area. It's stupid a stud like you paying. You don't want to be stupid.

The 14th Amendment was created to address issues related to slavery--primarily making them citizens, NOT racial issues. It has been used for racial issues most recently and has been used by corporations, especially now that they have been given many of the same rights as people.
And you just need to remember that gay people aren't easy targets. I don't sweat people like you. I've had to watch my back all of my life. I've faced down many people in my time. I don't scare easily. So save your bluster for someone else.
The 14th amendment address citizen's rights, especially "fundamental rights." Since blacks have been defined as citizens racial issues involving equal protection of the laws are indeed part of the 14th amendment.

When I "attempted to show force"? I made a simple little verbal taunt, and you blew your cookies. You have force confused with verbal jousting... Don't let's make this about me. You're the who got all red-faced.

Did you know that Memorial Day is the only holiday that begins with the flag at half-staff in honor of the fallen and then raises it to full-mast at noon to inspire and pay tribute to those that serve on in their stead?

There needs to a bounty put on their heads, payable in cash and tax free with in 24hrs of their arrest and booking.

Another crooked COP, oops I mean more crooked cops.

A South Lake Tahoe, California police officer pleaded guilty May 22, 2013 Wednesday to multiple counts of witness tampering and obstruction of an official proceeding.

A three-year, multi-agency investigation involving the FBI led to 44-year-old John Gerald Polandís arrest in January 2013 on five counts of witness tampering.

Baby, I'd LOVE to see you come over here and put my 6'5", 250# ass anywhere! You may need to get pumped up on some steroids or bring a few of your friends, because not only am I a BIG faggot, I'm a mean and angry faggot!
Do you think gay people get to the age of 47 without having to deal with morons like you? I DON'T back down!
And if YOU don't like the way the system works, then YOU need to haul your ass to some third-world, back-water country where unelected leaders dictate to the masses. That ain't how it works around here.
Who cares why the 14th Amendment was written? IF the 14th Amendment is applicable to the cases before the Supreme Court, then that will help our cause. If the justices decide that the 14th Amendment is not applicable, then it's back to the drawing board for us.
We WILL get what we want.
I think that what gets under your skin more than anything is that you know this. You know that you are powerless to stop same-sex marriage from becoming legal in the US. And that's why you guys get on here and throw little hissy fits about how gays are going to destroy traditional marriage and family.
And that's another thing you brought up--not being able to shield your kids from indecency... Please! You've GOT to be kidding!! If you have kids, they probably have access to the Internet, cable TV, violent video games, etc.
I guarantee you that your kids have been exposed to much more indecent things that gay people.
So, anytime you want to haul your ass over to Knoxville and "put me" anywhere, bring it... I ain't going anywhere!
Nothing worse than a fat, 6'5", 250 lb queer. I feel sorry for the underage teen boys you troll for at your local mall.

I had a blast in the Navy and Vietnam, wouldn't trade it for anything. And the G.I. Bill allowed me to get an education and become a scientist, my dream. So it was my pleasure. A few scary moments but that makes you more ALIVE!
Mostly it was sex drugs and rock and roll! WOO-HOOO! And memory is selective these many years later. Remember the good stuff, forget the bad. It's automatic, the brain is kind.
The only blasts you had in the Navy were the ones left on your face by other sailors when you were on shore-leave. You were the best at Cunni-Lee's bar and gloree-hole in Da Nang.

Thanks for the history lesson, I had that one mixed up with Loving V Virginia, it was late...
Easy targets or not, You lost your cookies at a simple taunt. It was beautiful. You seem to sweat a lot. It was all you, baby.
:-D
Thanks for the laugh...
Anyway, you should give some consideration to supporting the polygamists, before you use the same arguments against them, that you despise being used against your lot, it makes you look biased and hypocritical, in addition to easily provoked...
See, that's the thing with you and some of the others on here. You think that this is some kind of a joke.

"Hey! Let's go over to TOPIX and fuck with the gay people! We don't actually give a rat's ass about same-sex marriage, but maybe we can REALLY piss them off!" And then I figure you burp, fart, and scratch your insignificant testicles.

This issue is serious to us. It's about our lives.

It's pretty easy to diminish our feelings about the issue when YOU already have the access to the rights and protections of marriage.

Regarding polygamy: they have the same access to the court systems, political process, educating the masses, etc. that we do. If they want to seek rights for legal marriage, there's nothing stopping them.

As I've said many times, they do not threaten me. I am not afraid of polygamy being legalized. It would not impact my life in any way.

You guys, on the other hand, fear something about same-sex marriage. It's either that or you're just fucking around with us--poking fun at the queers. Making our lives just a little bit more difficult because you can.

I won't apologize for being passionate about this issue. I've gotten in the face of MANY people over this issue. When the Proposition 8 was announced I RAN down to San Francisco's City Hall, where I knew there would be OUTRAGED people like me.

I was confronted with some rube, who was wagging his Bible in my face--telling me about Leviticus. I grabbed the Bible out of his hands and went straight to the passages in Leviticus that outlawed shellfish. I then screamed at him, "WHY DON'T YOU GO DOWN TO RED LOBSTER AND PROTEST THEM?!?" He walked away and disappeared into the crowd.

I have put many hours into fighting for this cause. And when I am confronted with ignorance such as yours, I will address it every time.
