But that means a man can do something a woman can't, marry a woman. So that's not equal.

Just like we straight people do. Think liquor stores only end up selling to gay people? What about Starbucks?

Anyone who choose to be gay has to be drugged. WOOOOOHOOOOOOOO, 40 normal marriage states and soon the Supreme Court will strike them all down and Ogayma won't be able to stop it. We also still have the states to ratify the constitution and ban sad sack marriages on a national level.
The party's over. It's clear that gay marriage will be legal in all 50. There just isn't a good argument against it.

Congrats CO and OR, you legalized pot!

<quoted text>Retarded,isn't that the replacement word for gay, since homosexuals are far from happy. Any gay who would have anal sex without a condom is "retarded", don't you agree?
Why are you homophobes so fixated on the details of male/male anal sex?

Thanks Winston. You're a smart and honest man. Would you tell Mona Lott yet again? He's wearing me out! But of course that is his tactic, "win" by attrition.
I guess you and Winnie are going to go to the Holiday Inn again tonight. Probably the same room for you too also... next to the noisy elevator shaft. This way you can play and romp and howl without bothering the straight guests.

Doesn't matter if you are gay or straight, or bi, or asexual.

You are confusing a guilty verdict by trial with a finding of guilt by vote during an impeachment, not I. He was found guilty of perjury and obstruction of justice on Dec 19,1998.
You are confused, not I.
Exhausting!
Guilt by vote??? Are you ready for it?

hahahahahaha

Wow dude. You're willing to make up laughable excuses instead of just admitting you were wrong?

Guilt by vote???????? ahhahahaah
ahhaahahahah

The "vote" was for impeachment, you dolt. Does this ring a bell: innocent until proven guilty? The house votes on articles of impeachment and the TRIAL is in the Senate.... where Clinton was ACQUITTED.

Guilt by vote!!!!!!!!

Either Mike DiDouche is such a pervert that even his friends at NAMBLA didn't bother to tell him their club disbanded or maybe it's your friends lying because your predilections are so bizarre that even your NAMBLA pals want to distance themselves from you?
And how about that election? Mitt Romney back to shipping jobs to China. No SSM Ban in Minnesota. SSM voted in in Maryland, Maine and Washington. Yep, it makes me proud to be an American.
I'm not as happy with the results as you seem to be. At least it wasn't a total loss, nor a blowout like the dopey dems suffered 2 years ago.

Yes, he was impeached. That's what the House does: votes on articles of impeachment. It passed, so Clinton was impeached. The trial takes place before the Senate... Clinton was acquitted. Impeached only means indicted, nothing else, regardless of what this looney toon Mike says.

Impeachment in the United States is an expressed power of the legislature that allows for formal charges against a civil officer of government for crimes committed in office. The actual trial on those charges, and subsequent removal of an official on conviction on those charges, is separate from the act of impeachment itself.
Impeachment is analogous to indictment in regular court proceedings, while trial by the other house is analogous to the trial before judge and jury in regular courts. Typically, the lower house of the legislature will impeach the official and the upper house will conduct the trial.

Really? Who is arguing against gay marriage?
I have not argued against gay marriage rose, I have argued against using the court's to force it on the will of the people when the Constitution clearly is silent on the issue thus leaving it to the States and the People respectively to decide for themselves. Remember how the court tossed DOMA? They said exactly that, and they were right.

What you see happening in Maine, Minnesota, Washington, and Maryland is exactly how it is suppose to work, and if anti- same-sex marriage advocates go to court in an attempt to overturn the will of the people I will speak out against them too.

See Rose, you really do not understand my position at all, you just like to spew your talking points and nonsense.

Oh yeah! That's it! I've been waiting for two days! I like the all "a" one. An extra psycho touch! Fine job. Thanks.

Clinton was found guilty of perjury and obstruction of justice and impeached by the House on Dec. 19, 1998. If he hadn't been, the case would have stopped dead. But he was so it went on to the Senate where he was acquitted. The end.

Exhausting! Like the V.C.

What a psycho!

Like Winston Smith said to you. "You are arguing semantics, and poorly. DiRucci is correct." And he ain't my biggest fan! But he's an honest man. Impressive.

You lie just to get the upper hand on a silly topix thread. Despicable. And insane.
