You have expressed my feelings exactly. This is not about the same sex marrying. It is about the courts over turning laws that the majority of the people have voted for. We are not talking about hundreds of people, we are talking about hundreds of thousands of people. The voice of The People is being taken away.

Ok, I don't really care if same sex people get married or are together in any capacity. I am for equal rights BUT.......... I am very annoyed that peoples votes don't mean anything anymore. What happened to a majority vote rules? What happened to the peoples voice?
My stance on this has nothing to do with same sex couples. This is just the latest thing a court has overturned or blocked that THE PEOPLE voted for. Look at AZ., look back at prop. 187 which would have saved is billions in illegal immigrant funding. The people of the USA are trying to make changes to better our country and the few judges are effectively disenfranchising us.
Again this is not directed at same sex couples it is major frustration over the majority loosing there voice.
WHY VOTE????

Well, "ta-tas" is a common slang term for breasts. There is even a "save the ta-tas site". "Boobs" is also a common slang term for breasts. "Boob" is a common slang term for a total idiot, like you. Now, "tata" would be singular for "ta-tas" and "boob" singular for "boobs". So, I asked if you used the nick name "tata" because you are a boob.
(Can't believe I had to explain that one...)

Ok I guess I have heard it, but mostly by women and queers like you, but me being a man use other terms. Now the term Tata is a word/term used by Croations that refers to grandpa, can you understand this now? probably not because you are too stupid.

If you hadn't slept through civics class, you would know that the majority cannot vote away the rights of the minority. The Court was doing its job.

Even so called SMART people who do dumb things aren't worth a pile of spit.

The chief diversity officer at Gallaudet University was put on administrative leave October 10, 2012 after the school learned she had signed a petition supporting efforts to reverse Marylandís same-sex marriage law.

I'm not a liar Rose. You are the one who complained about the decision because it included- Essential to our existence and survival- in its description of marriage.
You seem confused, but what's new?
Yes, you are lying. Post a link to where I complained about the Loving v VA decision, or admit you are lying.

Get over yourself. "The people" shouldn't be allowed to deny people basic, equal rights. Why do you think we have a Constitution and just don't vote on everything?

Post a link to where you claim I made death threats or admit you are lying........

I mean the threats you said were death threats and then changed your mind and said they are not really death threats but still kind of a death threat and then you changed your story again and said they were death threats but I was not arrested and are still posting because they were not real death threats because you claim I said I was going to kill you with my mind power..........LOL

There is no link, and you know it. That's why you keep asking me to post one. You sent the threats to me. Private messages. Notice you never ask me to post the actual threats you sent me.
Why is that?
