Take a closer look at your utility bills, and any other public service bill or fees (tax), these are state wide. Although these extra costs are above and beyond your actual utility usage, they off set the cost to finance meds to the Aids/HIV patients for one example, there are others however. Most company health insurance will not pay for a pre-existing illness such as and AIDS/HIV patient. The state very carefully blends these hidden costs in you monthly bills, clever huh ??? It's obvious that SSM is taking advantage of this thinking that by marring they can get double coverage. It sounds complicating because it is most people don't look at the real reasont for tax/fee increases they just pay them.
What are you talking about, heterosexuals get HIV the same as homosexuals, last time I looked more HIV victims were heterosexual in the world than homosexual.

You need to become a tad more educated before you post garbage.

I am in favor of research into the cures of a lot of diseases including HIV, but then I am actually a compassionate person, not a member of the current day Spanish Inquisition

No, the Big Bang theory and evolution do not, in and of themselves, "prove" that there is no creator (science can not do that!), but they work quite well to explain existence without invoking supernatural actions.
Interesting to note, the one of the greatest early advocates of the "Big Bang" was a religious individual and saw it as a positive for creationism.

However that is not what they are told to say from the pulput today so it has sort of gone by the wayside.

Yes Jefferson, Madison and the other writers knew who they were writing for, and worded it in such a way as to apply to any religion, or none at all.
Master stroke that was.
It is easy to think of them as geniuses, but to be honest all of history and all the nations of Europe had already shown beyond all doubt that a nation founded upon a region, any religion was doomed to failure and strife.
Their choice to not found this nation upon any religion, was a no-brainer from their standpoint.
Exactly. The Founding Fathers knew enough history to remember the more than a century and a half of religious wars, where Christian killed Christian over trivial matters of doctrine.

Yep, hidden medical costs in our utility bills.......are you paranoid? or just simply an azz Bruno?
He's paranoid. Everyone knows medical costs are 'hidden' in sales taxes - on things like tobacco, alcohol, and firearms.

Look it up.

Bravo!!

You bring a level of intelligence to these threads which I find exceptionally refreshing.

Thank-you, and good morning.

Sure there is, there are politicians out there that want to get into our daughters panties and tell them what they are allowed to do and not allowed to do with their own reproductive system.

There are those out there ( some in this forum ) that would like sexual behavior and orientation governed by REALLY BIG government that gets right down into the very fabric of our lives.

There are those out there that want a specific religion mandated by the government., with freedoms for some religions, but not others.( notice that people that want religion in schools are not particularly in favor of Hinduism or Islam in our schools, let alone FSM )

They are still here, it is just that they have a much harder road to travel as every American patriot is opposed to them.

Yes I noticed that yesterday

It is as I have been telling my gay friends for a while now, it will just take some time.

Right is accelerating however, it took decades for the emancipation of slaves, and decades for the equality of women ( still in progress by some accounts ) this is coming very quickly.

It may seem like it is taking a long time... but it is not, this is really fast from a historical perspective.

As old prejudices fall away from our maturing society, as there is less reliance on belief and more assurance in science, the right thing to do is becoming more obvious, and easier to champion.

We are finally starting to grow up, belief in Santa Claus ( chuckle ) is waning, and it is about time.

Gee, I don't know about you Mikey, but I find intelligent conversation one of the most fun things to do, regardless of the venue. This particular venue is burdened with a plethora of un-fun conversation, to which you regularly contribute, as you have done here.

(Strictly MY opinion, of course.)

Step up to the plate, why don'tcha?

"WV". West Virginia? You're bigoted against West Virginians? Booker T Washington? Pearl Buck? Don Knotts? Chuck Yeager?

You have to stop this matchmaking you big dopey yenta. As I've told you over and over I'm very happy with my partner and not shopping.

I can edit your posts for comedy too, but I would do it much funnier and less spiteful. You mad or something?

"Buttercup"? You said you were straight. Are you fibbing to me fruitcake?

I seem to elicit dumb responses from you with every post so my troll works fine tough guy!

P.S. Hinting that I a may be gay is not funny, you homophobe. Get some new less hateful and bigoted schtick.
