I posted that as a joke of course, but it got me thinking ( never a good thing ) about titles and how we address people, you know our founders disagreed on how the president should be addressed.

"The 1787 Constitution of the United States did not specify the manner of address for the chief executive. When George Washington was sworn in as the first President of the United States in 1789, he initially used the style, "His High Mightiness, the President of the United States and Protector of their Liberties," a title elaborated by the Joint Congressional Committee on titles over the course of a month. Critics charged that it smacked of monarchy. Washington consented to the demands of James Madison and the United States House of Representatives that the title be altered to "Mr. President." The first Vice President of the United States and the second President, John Adams, felt the title showed too little deference and lacked prestige, but he was unsuccessful in replacing it."

Off topic... but interesting anyway

BTW, when did I claim- IKYABWAI was a word?
Stupid, you said,
"I suggest you grab a REAL dictionary and look up the big words you don't understand." This implies you thought "IKYABWAI" was a (big) word.
LOL! You can't twist your way out of this! Damn, you are dumb!

You need to understand 'context'. I was speaking of the PRIMARY EXPRESSION of intimacy as designed by nature. For heteros' it is intercourse. They have the default option of anal sex. It is rarely exercised by hetero's. Gays have only the default option. Inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.
Smirk.
You don't seem to know what "default" means, stupid. And gay people have other options. And, stupid, anal sex isn't inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

How would "consummation" be defined as in the "marriage was consummated"?
Who cares?
IF it really were an issue, the definition could just be that the couple engages in a sexual act.
What is your point?

donít know, I think you may be right.
The big question will be, not which way they rule, that is fairly obvious ( at least to me ), but how broad the ruling will be, affecting only California, or affecting all states.
I personally expect the narrower ruling, but still hold hope for the wider ruling

One half-assed post related to prop 8. All others, ad hominem insults about me. And you whine I don't allow discussion of the topic with my posts about TRUE MARRIAGE EQUALITY.

Perhaps I am not really the problem you make me out to be? Perhaps the real reason you try to censor me is because I bring out your ignorant hypocrisy regarding polyamory? And it makes you uncomfortable? It should bigot.

Child molesters and welfare cheats. Did you know that was the most common reason given back when homosexuals were ostracized and actually illegal? Ignorant people like you thought they were mostly pedophiles and child molesters. They even told us that in public school. They sadi they were mentally ill and to run from them. Is that what you tell your grand kids about polygamy? It's what you told me about polygamy.

Well the lying part is his saying he is in favor of same sex marriage, and then attacks anyone else that is in favor of it and desperately trying to change the subject to poly, which later he says he doesnít actually care about, but only how he can use that topic to attack anyone in favor of same sex marriage.
He twists and turns so often I donít think he knows what he is for or against.
Please prove your false allegations and lies. Especially the one where I said I don't care actually about polygamy, Liar Big D.

Please show me a twist or turn. In other words I call bullsh!t, Liar Big D.

Iím not trying to censor you, Iím just laughing at your desperate and continuously failed attempts at the same tactic over and over and over.

Hope your therapy went well, maybe you should seek the other kind, I know he was kidding but seriously, trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results is an indication of something.

Ad hominem. It's all you've got. You are even more hateful and ignorant regarding poly than that lying bigot "Big D".

"What about the children???!!" Don't lie and say you didn't post that, Miss Thing.

What an ignorant bigoted rant that was, wish I saved the post #. A real classic Would make an old time KKK member proud. You can attempt to deny it but you and I both know it's true and that's all that matters.

haha insane disabled combat vet needs psychotherapy too to think more correctly. so funny.

My therapy went as well as it could. I am religious about it, With it I can almost walk across the room.

When your done with the hateful ad hominem about a disabled combat veteran (ha ha so funny!) get back to Prop 8, so far it's been 6 to 1. Ad hominem to substance.

I'm waiting for that Bigot Dope power post! The one where you change someone's mind! And they embrace same sex marriage (But careful not poly marriage! don't take it too far!).

In a literal sense, there is no such type of fish as a "red herring"; rather it refers to a particularly strong kipper, meaning a fish (typically a herring but not always) that has been strongly cured in brine and/or heavily smoked. This process makes the fish particularly pungent smelling and, with a strong enough brine, turns its flesh reddish.

Rosie....Rosie ...(sigh) Rosie....Frankie has expressed in numerous post his support for gay marriage.
He's obviously flying under false colors. Do you know what that means? Well, it means he's lying, he not really in favor of gay marriage.
Pietro Armando wrote:
He has so expressed his support for other types of marriage such as polygamy under the concept of "marriage equality".
Again, he's just flying under false colors. He's against gay marriage, so he floods the forum with the red herring of polygamy. And yeah, I realize you and Frankie are so stupid you think the term "red herring" means a fish, but it doesn't. Basically a "red herring" is a distraction. Look up the term.

Well you should be religious about your therapy, good.

I donít particularly give a darn about your other obsession, other than to laugh at you about it.

The funny part to me is how obvious he is about it, and no matter how often he is called on it, he tries ( unsuccessfully ) to stick to his story, which makes no sense as he constantly attacks anyone that is for SSM

Its ridiculous

But it is fun to watch
