Buyers paid all cash for 34.9 percent of the Southern California homes sold January 2013.

Industry observers noted also that the current hot market could cool if the number of homes for sale rises.

True. The French resistance during WWII had female members, Russians employed female fighter pilots, Russian female partisans, etc.
I think it is long past time we break down that barrier

We have women on ships now, on subs, we have women pilots, we have had women on assignments on the front lines, some 139 have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, many with weapons in their hands manning posts. They have been on teams doing door to door searches manning towers with rifles etc etc etc

We are already doing it, it is just that a lot of people donít recognize it yet.

Because this is a perfectly good marriage equality thread, thank you.
Why don't you start a thread on red herrings? Over in the fish threads. Or maybe a straw man thread.
Rosie forgets the key word here is "MARRIAGE", as in same sex marriage, conjugal marriage, and yes the one she loves to deny, plural marriage. In her "marriage equality" world, Kody and his ladies are a bunch of Mormon fundies, Red necks, in breeders, and all sorts of trollette undesirables. They're not worthy of being allowed in the club house. It must make her cringe every time the Browns appear on national TV supporting gay marriage. "Wahhhhhh.....why can't those people leave us alone". Remember, Rosie, your cause is their cause, and their cause is your cause.

Did anyone from the pro gay marriage crowd honestly think this wouldn't happen? That plural marriage practitioners wouldn't jump on the band wagon?

Anyone willing to offer an honest answer?

They can try to jump on the bandwagon ( chuckle )

It wonít help

Until more responsible and civilized advocates of it come forward, it just isnít going anywhere.

It is just talk

It's all marriage equality. Except for the goats, that's PETA.
P.S. Learn the subject you are debating, goats cannot enter into contracts. Neither can little girls. So your bigotry and ignorance regarding poly marriage is unfounded. It's just ignorance. And bigotry. And hypocrisy.
P.S. What happened to your dopey plan to tell all married gay couples that they are no longer married?
What a dope!
again you will need someone more civilized and human to make the case, because that is not what the general public is seeing and has seen.

I am not talking about me you idiot, I am talking about general support which you wont get as long as all they see so far on the subject has been pretty darn negative.

I think gays should be allowed to marry. If I have to put up with a mother-in-law, they should too.

You are personally at war with Mormons. But not Islamists. They've both polygamists (according to your bigotry). Yet you only hate the Mormons. Funny that.

Ever since I began researching the topic of polygamy, I have been bothered by the idea that this practice is justifiably criminalized because it is associated with the ills of child exploitation, abuse of women and children, etc.

But, within the criminal code, we have clear and specific provisions to target these offences, which are clearly harmful, and which any reasonable person considers intolerable and deserving of criminal sanction. So why does the law banning polygamy remain, a provision which, by the way, is almost never invoked and when it has been used, has led to few convictions that carried relatively minimal sentences?

If someone commits a crime, prosecute the hell out of them NO MATTER THE TYPE OF MARRIAGE THEY CHOOSE.
