He was impeached by the house, I never said otherwise, and then that impeachment failed in the senate.
like any criminal charge that goes to a trial, the prosecutors decide to press charges ( the impeachment ) it goes to trial ( the senate ) and there the outcome is decided, succeed or fail.
The Senate does not vote on impeachment.

Hey all you wrinkly, middle-aged has-beens: Are you ready to move over and let the next generation have your spot on the planet? After all, youíve lived a good life. And your aging body is going to cost taxpayers a lot more than the salt you think you are worth. In other words, your return-on-investment isnít looking so good to the United Nations.
In case you havenít heard, our brains are being conditioned to look upon you as the burden you are. And itís time you see yourself that way too:
Thatís right. The UN is promoting we EUTHANIZE our aging parents. If that ad didnít send chills up your spine,

LOL! Hey, they managed to work the word "Socialism" into this. Can you tell me what socialism is, and why you think it's a bad thing?

UNTRUE.
Cinton's act of adultery was NOT a crime. His lying underoath to a grand jury, which he admitted to, and was disbarred for, WAS a crime.
Patreus's adultery IS a SPECIFIED CRIME under the UCMJ. The maximum penalty is fordeiture of his pension (a considerable $200,000 a year for life, reduction in rank, forfeiture of all military benefits, and imprisonment for up to one year).
Now if we CANNOT expect one of the highest generals to obey teh laws, rules, and regulations specified in teh UCMJ, HOW can we expect anyone of lesser rank to do so also ?!
The President is the Commander in Cheif;

Adultery in the military is actually prosecuted under Article 134, which is also known as the "General Article." Article 134 simply prohibits conduct which is of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces, or conduct which is prejudicial to good order and discipline.

The UCMJ allows the President of the United States to administer the UCMJ by writing an Executive Order, known as the Manual for Court Martial (MCM). The MCM includes the UCMJ, and also supplements the UCMJ by establishing "Elements of Proof," (exactly what the government must *prove* to prosecute an offense), an explanation of offenses, and maximum permissible punishments for each offense (among other things). While the MCM is an Executive Order, enacted by the President, in reality much of the contents are a result of military and federal appeals court decisions.

One of the things that the MCM does is to expand article 134 into various "sub-articles." One of these "sub-articles" covers the offense of adultery (Article 134, paragraph 62).

Adultery, as a military offense, is difficult to prosecute (legally) for several reasons.

There are three "Elements of Proof" for the offense of Adultery in the Military:

(1) That the accused wrongfully had sexual intercourse with a certain person;

(2) That, at the time, the accused or the other person was married to someone else; and

(3) That, under the circumstances, the conduct of the accused was to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces or was of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces.

No the Senate tries an Impeachment.

If the impeachment does not pass the trial in the Senate, then there are no consequences as the impeachment has failed.

Anything not on Rose_NoHo's agenda is a "non issue". Four Americans dead in Libya? It's a "non issue". Marriage equality for polygamists? That's a "non issue".

The bottom line is that Rose_NoHo is a non issue.

It's over Republicans. With more and more Latino voters your anti-gay views are going to be unelectable.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/13/lati...

Nearly six-in-ten Latino voters (59%) said their state should legally recognize same-sex marriage while 32% said their state should not. But among all voters, about half (48%) favored legalization of gay marriage while nearly the same share said they would oppose it (47%).

Non-Hispanic whites were the most opposed to states legally sanctioning same-sex marriage (47% favored but 50% were opposed).

The "story" mentioned the UN, so I'm betting it's a fundie organization, one of those "end times" groups. They fixate on the UN because they think it's existence fulfills the prophesy of a one world government, or some such.

NO,only the retard black gay people who are just as subhuman as gays. In other words, we are talking about you. You don't believe in Jesus, so his death was not for you. Homosexuality is a mental disorder, so the devil lives for you.

I pass gas that is better educated than you are.
And I didn't say that the UN is a fundie organization. I said:
