I sometimes wonder, if those birds were all red or yellow, would people still hate them?
Yellow as in Japan and red as in Indian?

This is totally awesome. My husband is from Cali. It would be so wonderful if Arkansas would be the 6 state to recognize same sex marriage. My partner of 16 years have been contemplating moving back to Cali just to get married. We love and have mutual respect for each other. Why cant we have the same rights as others? Love is Love. Animals are more "civilized" than people. Did you know Turtle Doves mate for life?

CNN)-- A federal judge in California on Wednesday struck down the state's ban on same-sex marriage, ruling that voter-approved Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution -- handing supporters of gay rights a major victory in a case that both sides say is sure to wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court.
The 136-page opinion, issued by Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker in San Francisco, is an initial step in what will likely be a lengthy fight over California's Proposition 8, which defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
At stake in the trial was whether California's ban on same-sex marriage violates gay couples' rights to equal protection and due process, as protected by the U.S. Constitution.
The high-profile case is being watched closely by both supporters and opponents of same-sex marriage, as many say it is destined to make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court. If it does, the case could result in a landmark decision on whether people in the United States are allowed to marry people of the same sex.

Same-sex marriage is currently legal in five U.S. states and in the District of Columbia, while civil unions are permitted in New Jersey. The five states are Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, Iowa and New Hampshire.

You DO have the same rights as others. Unfortunately, many of ours have been taken away as well.

Enjoy! Too bad you have to waste them on football games. They'd taste much better on a bird hike up in the mountains, grilled next to a pristine New Mexico lake after hours of intense hiking and birding.

There is no such thing as a "nice" football game.

Except according to the commie socialists in the government. They LOVE the fact that people can be preoccupied with sports while they plan and scheme different ways of screwing the people out of more of their money and their freedoms. And people are oblivious to it.

Why do you think Obama signed the NDAA on New Years Day- even after he promised he would never sign it? Hint: Sheeple preoccupation with holidays, hang-overs and sports.

Football is a seasonal sport, mostly watched one day a week for 4 months. Your bird watching according to you seems to be done almost 24/7. I contend that it is bird watchers who run around with their head up their ass and really don't what is going on in this country or the problems we currently face. Hence they support Paul!

"Football is a seasonal sport, mostly watched one day a week for 4 months."
Then there's the other sports that take its place the rest of the year, as well as sports magazines, the sports section in the paper, the sports report on the nightly news, the sports talk in the bars, etc....

Granted, birding CAN also be a year-round endeavor. That doesn't mean someone who does it isn't up on politics.I can assure you, I know more about what's going on in the world than what you know. It is proven by your lack of knowledge of what Ron Paul stands for, and by your denial of the direction your republican party has gone in the past decades.

Also, why do you stereotype ALL bird watchers as Paul supporters?
Because you know of ONE who is? And you have the nerve to call the libs "hypocrites?"
You, Warrior, are about as liberal and hypocritical as they come here on Topix.
At least the self-professed libs do not lie about it.

There you go again like a good typical lib jumping to conclusions before gathering any facts. "denial of the direction your republican party has gone in the past decades...." Name me one post or point to anything I have written to back up that statement! I have traveled all over the world on behalf of the United States Government, I am definitely more informed about the politics of this world than some lonely bird watcher house wife!
