I found this part interesting: "Employees who worked the Brown case have described being harassed by colleagues due to the widespread belief that civil rights laws should not be used to protect white voters. The case precipitated deep divisions within the Justice Department. Some employees felt that the voting rights act was passed because historically, it was minorities who had been disenfranchised and that the department should therefore focus on cases filed by minorities, while others felt that it was intended to protect all voters in a race-neutral manner. Some Republican members of congress have been critical of the decision to narrow the scope of the case, including representative Frank Wolf of Virginia and representative Lamar Smith of Texas. Mr. Wolf was quoted by the Washington Times as asking, "If showing a weapon, making threatening statements and wearing paramilitary uniforms in front of polling station doors does not constitute voter intimidation, at what threshold of activity would these laws be enforceable?" Mr. Smith has also expressed skepticism at the Obama administration's stated justification for narrowing it, stating "The administration still has failed to explain why it did not pursue an obvious case of voter intimidation. Refusal to address these concerns only confirms politicization of the issue and does not reflect well on the Justice Department."

I feel safe, all right, but I am going to begin driving around with a .380, that's why I feel safe. When I go into NYC, you betcha...
Who can forget: "Damien “Football” Williams the infamous member of the L.A. Four and the most recognized participant of L.A. riots due to the live news broadcast of his attack on white truck driver Reginald Denny and because of his memorable nickname which was repeated frequently in news media, breaks his silence on the 20th anniversary of the events at the South L.A. intersection of Normandie and Florence. Williams, who was identified as the 18-year-old man who had used a brick on Denny by computer enhancement of the videotape which revealed an identifying tattoo was charged with attempted murder as well as assault and mayhem. A then member of the Eight Trey Gangster Crips, after the riots the Mexican Mafia allegedly had a hit out on Williams, the contract to kill him was picked up by the now infamous known MS-13. In 1993, Williams was convicted of mayhem and misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to 10 years. In 1997, Williams was released for good behavior, but in 2003, he was convicted for the 2000 murder of a drug dealer. He will not be eligible for parole until 2019. On April 29, 1992 Denny loaded his truck with sand and began driving to a plant in Inglewood where he said the sand was due. He left the Santa Monica Freeway and took a shortcut across Florence Avenue to get to his destination. His truck had no radio, so he was unaware he was driving into a riot. At 6:46 p.m., after entering the intersection at Normandie, rioters threw rocks at his windows and he heard people shouting for him to stop. Overhead, a news helicopter with reporter Bob Tur aboard captured the events that followed.
Denny stopped in the middle of the street. Antoine Miller opened the truck door, giving others the chance to pull Denny out. Another man, Henry Keith Watson, then held Denny’s head down with his foot. Denny was kicked in the abdomen by an unidentifed man. Two other unidentified men who had led a liquor store break-in earlier that day hurled a five-pound piece of medical equipment at Denny’s head and hit him three times with a claw hammer. Damian Williams then threw a slab of concrete at Denny’s head and knocked him unconscious. Williams then did a victory dance over Denny. He then flashed gang signs at news helicopters, which were televising the events live, and pointed and laughed at Denny. Anthony Brown then spat on Denny and left with Williams. Several bystanders took pictures of Denny but did not attempt to help him. LAPD officers, despite the fact that they were in the vicinity as the attack took place, could not provide help to Denny. After the beating, various men threw beer bottles at the unconscious Denny. Gary Williams approached Denny and rifled through his pockets. Lance Parker stopped near Denny and attempted to shoot the fuel tank of Denny’s truck but missed. On Thursday, August 19, Lawrence Morrison delivered the opening statement. A week later, the videotape of the beating was shown. The doctors who treated Denny testified, describing his wounds and their efforts to repair them and were followed by witnesses of the beating. The defense was denied direct contact with the witnesses to protect their identities. In late August, Denny’s rescuers testified for the prosecution. The prosecution rested on September 17, 1993.
The defense began pleading on September 20, making a case for unpremeditated assault. Faal began by challenging the video evidence and portrayed Williams as a victim of poverty and racism. She and Broadly tried to humanize their clients.
In the closing arguments the defense attorneys claimed Williams and Watson were being used as scapegoats for the L.A. riots.

There are more slaves now, then at any time in history.
But the real idiotic distortion is imposing a fake, imposter relationship on marriage, and equating that to the battle against slavery.
You are a shameless reprobate.
Hey, dumbass... You're talking about "illegal slavery". I'm obviously talking about a time in history when slavery was still legal.

Haven't I told you not to be misleading? GGGGG!

OMG, You're calling HIM a drama queen? That's laughable...
" Any two people can fall on top of one another and spit out a child. That's been happening since the beginning of time." This is meant to demonize heterosexuals? I fail to see how... However, I will point out that it takes 1 man and 1 woman to conceive a child.
"Spare me the histrionics." precedes "LGBT people were not enslaved, unless they were gay slaves. But neither were women, religious minorities, or the disabled. Yet we extend civil and equal rights to each one of these populations."? Priceless. "Women" are not a minority based upon sexual predilection, nor are "religious minorites" or "the disabled", which are all groups that are defined by qualities that are not based upon sexual predilection, as previously pointed out as per women. their fight is not your fight, you dishonor them all by attempting to cozy up to them and insinuate similarity.
"Stop playing with semantics" followed by " Marriage has always been and will always be a manmade social and legal union between two or more people" which is semantic deception. It has not. It has always been between 1 man and 1 woman, you have not yet been given license to re-writwe history, which is something that you have no respect for, anyway, according to your own posts. "depending on when your lived and where you lived." Untrue, nowhere in the world or history has marriage ever been between 2 of the same gender, see above point as per the revision of history. "The way it has looked has varied widely over the eons." Falsity again, it has always "looked like" 1 man and 1 woman. "Allowing same-sex partners to benefit from the laws that protect married couples in this country is a rendering of marriage." should be what you wrote, if you were actually interested in a true statement. "Denial of marriage between same-sex partners has been based on the false and long held belief that homosexuals are disordered." is another batch of hogwash. If we have had criteria in place by which to judge one another, then "disordered" is what you have been. Until you brought in some psychiatrists to make the majority seem "disordered" for having our tenets. "We no longer hold those beliefs--at least those in the medical, psychiatric, biological, and other scientific communities." is perfect proof of this point. Using the opinions of "professionals" to try and disarm us.
I would continue to dissect your posts, but I am out of room. And, I have debunked you already.
--You straight people think you're the shit because you squeeze out a few babies. All of a sudden you're "Gods"! Maybe if you'd practice a little birth control there wouldn't be 40 million abortions each year. Maybe 1.5 million children wouldn't die from starvation each year. Way to go guys! You seem to REALLY have your shit together!

--You have a problem with our sexual predilections? Got news for you, bub; we're not changing. Besides, homosexuality is considered a "class" of people. Have a look at the Supreme Court's decision in Romer vs. Evans (1996).
And you straight people have some nerve talking about our "sexual predilections". You do every single thing that we do. We don't have the market cornered on anything.

--God you're eat up with stupid tonight. Gays have been allowed to marry at various times and various places in history. And your 1 man/1 woman crap isn't even universally practiced in this day and age. There are plenty of countries that allow polygamy.

--Are you really so paranoid as to believe that mental health, medical, and biological professionals of the first world countries conspired to remove homosexuality from the lists of disorders? Please! Take your lithium!
Think about it. If these professionals could turn a buck off curing gays, they'd be doing left and right. But they determined that we are not in need of treatment.

--Next time bring some back-up. You'll need it.
