OK, Mike DiRucci now troll.

Whatever you choose to call yourself, that's entirely up to you.

I'm not sure why you'd pick the name "Mike DiRucci now troll". Shall we refer to you as "Frank Rizzo then troll"? Since you seem to feel the need to include some sort of time stamp.

What is your point? That the Federal government extended the practice of voting to women?

That in and of itself shows that it is not a "right", it is a privilege.

But if it makes us feel better to call it a "right" so be it, doesn't change reality.

I have to say that I "respect" them more when they stop hiding behind "Fiscal conservatism" "Obama is an illegal" and countless other BS and they just show what they are about.
The tea party made no secret what they were about when they first marched in Broward, Florida right after Obama was elected but over time the pros have taken over and polished it up.

Yeah, Thomas Jefferson was a real idiot:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--"
Nope, don't see him say we were " endowed by our Constitution..."
We don't have a creator.

Not once have I used religion as a point in this debate, so again:
This has nothing to do with religion, so come up with a rational argument.
"endowed by their Creator".
That's religion.

The good men who wrote the Ammendment call it a "right". Had it been a right by birth, there would have been no question. Since the Constitution extended that right to women, it was a Constitutionally given right.

Not my term, theirs.

<quoted text>Typical lame thought process. If one does it once it must be a normal act. Like I have said many times before, every one in @ 10,000 toads have two heads, that DOES NOT make it normal.
Liam R said the fact that same sex sex happens in nature shows that it's natural.
commonpeeps wrote:
Like moho says, even heterosexuals engage in anal sex (yes, at times, not all times), so that is supposed to make homo sex 'normal'?
People like you try to demonize gays by bringing up anal sex, when the fact is most people who have anal sex are straight.
And "normal" just means what most people do/are. BFD.

I once laughed at one of moho's dumb remarks so hard I nearly squirted in my jeans, does that make it normal.

You will also notice the complete ABSENCE of the term "RIGHT TO VOTE" in the original text of the Constitution, it was never considered a "right." The first use of "right to vote" came in the 15th Amendment in 1870.

But, again you are attempting to have a "gotcha" moment with nonsense, much the same way Frisbee tries.

Taken in the context as it is written in the Amendment:

"The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."

"Right" in this context means- ABILITY. It is hardly the same as what the founders considered RIGHTS- life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

Along the way, in our bastardization of the language, we have started ot interchange the terms- Right and Privilege.

But hey, whatever makes you sleep better at night.

Really? Prove it. I have never used the term "creator", "God", or any other religious argument as a reason against same sex marriage.
