If California, San Franciso based, cannot pass Prop 8 on full legal rights to gays, et. al, Hawai'i won't come close, either.

A lot of us have a suggestion for you. Why don't you get the hell out of Hawaii(or any state where human beings reside). Just do us a favor and don't leave a forwarding address.

That is untrue. Obama isn't trying to imitate George W. Bush, easily the worst President in U.S. history. And if you don't believe that you're a bigger fool than he is.

Your right Jimmy Carter was the worst, but Obama still has time to surpass him.

Would someone give me a factual answer about why same sex unions shouldn't be allowed and how it effects them? All I have ever heard is the Biblical version, but since the world is made up of more than just "Christians", other views need to be respected. Facts please, not personal emotions, on how same sex unions/marriages negatively effects you.

Because;

1) Marriage is between a man and a woman. Period.

2) The Citizens of Hawaii have already voted on this and we said 'No'. What part of that is hard for the gays to understand?

3) You are asking for society to sanction and recognize a behavorial aboration... gayness is not the norm and
next you'll want NMBLA and sex with minors, animals, etc... as long as they are consenting right?

4) Why is the government even in the marriage business? Go see your rabbi, rev. or priest and if they will do it... fine.

5) IF homosexuals and lesbians want to incur the marriage penalty tax AND abide by all the laws relating to property and divorce...
OK. But it will be 'civil unions' not 'marriage'. SOME things must remain sacrosant and untouchable as bedrocks of our soceity,

I would love to have McKinley high school renamed. He was a member of the KKK. It would be most befitting that the name of the school and the present statue of him be replaced by a black man. Priceless!

Since "marriage" is a "Christian" belief, what about the rest of the people. I said, factual and without emotion and how will it neagtivley effect you? You failed.

Absolutely right Canard, the damage done by Bush and his Fascist handlers cannot be undone. The whole world knows Bush was the worst president in history and America will never recover. If the GOP puppets of the rich continue to obstruct Obamas' efforts to fix this country, the Fascists will have their failed country to continue to plunder and masses to oppress. Do we want to follow Nazi Germany into Fascism and failure? If we ever have another GOP administration the country will not survive as we knew it. The GOP is bought and paid for by special interest fascists and will never do the right thing for the American People.The corruption has undermined our democracy and can not be allowed to continue.

"Leave McKinley High's name as is
William H. McKinley High School is the oldest public high school in Hawaii. It was established in 1865 and was named after President William McKinley, who helped to bring about the annexation of the Hawaiian Islands to the United States."

And is that something WE ALL should be proud of?!!!
Guess they taught you WELL of the OCCUPIER'S HISTORY.
Yeah, it should be renamed...TOKYO HIGH!

There was a great picture on AP this morning, Nancy Pelosi stnding next to Ron Gettlefinger head of the UAW and the American Auto Show....talk about being OWNED by a special interest group that picture summed up what the DNC actually stands for...total support of anything union and to heck with everyone else.

With stating she is a lesbian, does that make her less of a person?

marriage is a bedrock of society?!? that's laughable, especially when you see a 55% national divorce rate and drive-through wedding chapels all over vegas.

since you think marriage is the glue that is holding our society together, perhaps you should also support a no divorce clause with every marriage and a severe monetary fine for each instance of infidelity.

please, heterosexual marriage is a joke to many these days, look at the high divorce rate you want to protect marriage, ban divorce. and I am normal, I love another human being. it is you that has the fear of indifference, why should gays and lesbians suffer because so many are weak in their own sexualities that they fear gays and lesbians. becareful you might catch it...
