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.

I've spent time on Yerba Buena Island with it's spectacular SF city views but as a government geologist, not a squid.
Although I did pass through the T.I. brig for a few intense days in 1969! F**^%!@# Jarheads! "maggot this and maggot that". What jackasses!
I am trying to remember I think it was in either 78 or 79 an air force or Navy pilot ejected into SF bay, he had aimed his plane over into the ocean and punched out.

I didnít see the even and I was not on the boat, but I was on the dock when they brought him in, he was astounded that we had boats in the water near him before he hit the water.

Funniest evening I ever spent on Yerba Buena was after that sailboat incident, I was guarding the armory with an M16 and inside were over 300 bales of marijuana ( the Oakland police were not prepared to receive it yet and asked us to keep it under guard until they sent trucks to collect it )

There was marijuana that had spilled out over the corridors, while they were bringing them in, we didnít have any problems finding a few that wanted to help clean it up LOL!

Since no state had previously legalized marijuana possession, Washington must invent a production system from the ground up.

I agree, why vote if it doesn't count. How does one person get to make a decision for the rest of us.

Well now the lesbians will be walking around putting chapstick on their chapped carpet burned looking noses. And the pole smokers will be walking around craming things in their neck to desensitize their gag reflex. This is where I want my kids raised. It blows me away that a teacher now can teach such behavior is acceptable. I mean if you want to eat clam tacos or bologna ponies thats cool. If you like those things in your neck or face, cool. But thats not enough. You think all of society should have it in their neck and face also. Marriage never was about where to put what in or on each other. It was made ugly by sects of people who couldnt come up with a name for the unity of their little sickies.

WE.ARE FASTLY BECOMING A GENDER MUTE NATION. IT TROUBLES ME WHEN BOYS ARE GIRLS AND GIRLS ARE BOYS AND SOCIETY AS A WHOLE IS GOOD WITH IT.
