You're willing to venture into them if you could find a woman who'd do them with you! If you do, I want a notarized statement.

I think you're a victim. Anyone as anti social and obviously as lonely as you ass is a victim of something. Poor upbringing or maybe bullying given you're intelligence probably makes deciding what shoe to put on your right foot might take 18 minutes of your time each day.
LOL!!!!
I have little use for shoes. If I tried to put them on, it probably would take 18 minutes. Be happy you need shoes and can put them on easily tough guy.

If all laws against polygamy went away except prop 8, poly will be still illegal in CA, and the only thing keeping it illegal would be prop 8.

Spin that jackass.

I fully support marriage EQUALITY. And you don't.
What don't you understand about that?
That isnít the issue

the issue is youíre not comprehending that polygamy was illegal ( regardless if that is good or bad ) before prop 8, that Prop 8 had no effect on polygamy laws at all

What was true before, was still true after.

Not so with same sex marriage which was legal before prop 8 and illegal after prop 8.

Prop 8 had no effect on polygamy laws at all, prop 8 being overturned will also not change polygamy laws.

Oh come on, what about line marriages?

It is a marriage that potentially never ends.

( I had no knowledge of line marriages until I read a Heinlein book, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, great read.)

You don't get it. Prop eight bans polygamy EQUALLY to banning same sex marriage.

It's a simple concept really. What don't you understand about restricting marriage to "A" man and "A" woman? Does that mean 2 men can marry another man? Think real hard.

No you donít get it, polygamy was illegal before Prop 8, was still illegal after Prop 8, and will still be illegal when Prop 8 is overturned.

Polygamy was already banned before, and will continue to be banned after.

Prop 8 did not change polygamy laws in any way whatsoever, and will continue to have zero effect when it is overturned.

Doesn't seem THAT difficult to me. Frankie must be easily confused, or else he really believes in the "double illegal" theory. shaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Polygamy was banned BEFORE Prop 8. Do you have a problem with linear time?

Oh come on..... 2 wives would have twice as many chores for you to do. You would keep busier.

And when it was time to watch a movie, you would be outvoted, you would get to see ALL the chick flicks.

This is an opportunity for you ;)

Look Frank I will try one more time. A few years ago, in the state of California, Same sex marriage was legal. Prop 8 was put on the ballot to ban, same sex marriage. Given that it ( same sex marriage) was legal, the voter initiative was overturned by a federal judge, due to its unconstitutionality. The ruling was crafted to apply only to California. Whilst polygamy is still illegal, and has been for a very long time. Your Polygamy stance would go a lot farther in say, North Carolina. There the law is a general ban, that does not change an existing law. Lets say that Iowa, next week votes to ban same sex marriage, a law that is on the books. I would venture to say, it would be struck down. You cant remove an existing law, for a select group of people based on sexuality. In the state of Illinois, EVERYONE, must wear seat belts when operating, or ridding in a motor vehicle, with the exception of buses and motor driven cycles. It does not narrow the law to only apply to people with blue eyes.

Exactly my point, that and they no doubt would have timed periods. The Midol expense could be more than I could handle.
