It's strange. I mean I wouldn't find it strange if you called another man "sugar nipples", because you're gay. But he's not, so it's strange, don't you think?

Well, when someone decides to insult a personal friend of mine......I tend to get involved......folks who know me have done it for me.....and I'm simply returning the favor!!!

Besides, was I responding to you? or are you just sticking your nose somewhere it doesn't belong?

You know Bill? I don't. Tell us about him. All I know is the dumb bigoted nonsense he posts here. Like accusing people of being gay as if that's a bad thing.
Tell us about the Bill you know! Is he really not a homophobe? Is he just faking it in his posts?
Oh, like folks don't make those comments about him and other straight men, right? You get what you dish out.....frankly, he's a helluva a lot smarter than you think he is!!!

Bill's a dopey loudmouthed buffoon and insults me all the time.
He says I have Alzheimer's and need a 55 gallon drum of thorazine administered anally and that I need to shut my pie hole! I have a right to insult the big jackass back.
Butt out. Pardon the pun.
He's insults you all of the time, but you just registered....so,that means you must be the troll who has nothing better to but be a troll!!!

Welcome to the new recession:

In fact, the folks at the Economic Cycle Research Institute, who have made some remarkably prescient calls on the business cycle over the last few decades, believe we are already in a recession that started in July, 2012.

Bet you have a big wide one! Have to put a wide load sign on it when you go down the hall.

Your friend Bill's a jackass! If you see him tell him to shut his pie hole. And tell him he needs thorazine. A 55 gallon drum, administered anally. The nurse is ready with his anal purge!

That's the kind of silly sh!t Bill says. I like it. It's real funny. And maybe Bill likes my silly insults too. So BUTT out toots! Pun intended.

P.S. Bill swabbing the poop deck is funny! Loosen up squid.

P.P.S. Wanna buy some exclamation points cheap? I notice you use a lot.

P.P.P.S. Shit your pie hole!

Wanna bet? Have you even read the trial transcripts? Do you think SCOTUS will use one of your inane arguments? They are REAL lawyers, not fakers like you.

Exactly... they has squat, and as this is an appeal, no new evidence can be presented other than evidence that has already been presented.

There is no real question how this will come out, there is only the matter of degree, overturn in California only, or a broader ruling that will affect all 50 states

This is why your opinion doesn't amount to a hill of beans.
If the court wanted to keep this decision solely effecting California they wouldn't have taken the case, there was no need to as that is exactly what the 9th Circuit did.
There are only two possible outcomes. The SCOTUS overturns the 9th and ultimately Walkers decision or they make this a national issue. The real question is are they really ready for another Roe v Wade?
And, will the court contradict itself? Let's not forget they are also hearing the DOMA decision, which clearly states that the Federal Government has NO say in marriage laws, that it is an issue left to the States. In order to uphold the Prop 8 and the DOMA ruling they truly create a contradiction. On one hand you have the Federal Government regulating marriage through the federal court system, on the other you have them saying the federal government lack the power to regulate it?
Interesting situation the court has put itself in.
Roe V Wade was one of the better decisions the court has made, I expect they would like another as profound as that one was.

You donít understand, this is an appeal of a decision, there will be no new arguments, there will be no new evidence, there will be no new arguments. It will die by the arguments already presented in the lower courts.

The SCOUTS has contradicted itself numerous times through our history.

The only real questions is will it be the narrow decision ( the one I expect ) pertaining only to California, or the broader one ( the one I would like to see but donít expect ) pertaining to all 50 states.

It is an equal rights issue, the Federal government does have a say in equal rights and has exercised that authority many times.
