Why can't I marry my sister? You refuse to say.
Your "marry my goat" argument was a real doozy!
Ok you want a serious answer?

Start a petition to put it on a ballot, it will be like taking a survey and you will get a LOT of answers.:)

Have your sister there with you when you do it too, that will make it a LOT funnier, please take video, get Google-glass because we will want to see the feed direct.

Make sure you tell people about the slippery slope and that you are asking because of Same Sex Marriage

My opinion doesnít matter, get a general public opinion.

I argue there is a slippery slope. You scream and whine there isn't and offer nothing to support that. Except the off topic card. It's not off topic and you know it.
I didn't make up the rules in Logic. It's Logic 101.
The slippery slope argument is what it is.

The Slippery Slope is a fallacy in which a person asserts that some event must inevitably follow from another without any argument for the inevitability of the event in question. In most cases, there are a series of steps or gradations between one event and the one in question and no reason is given as to why the intervening steps or gradations will simply be bypassed.

let's try this ploy:

He has been denying the whole "slippery slope" as the reason for his bringing up poly ( and his sister ) thing from the beginning, and now he embraces it.

Maybe we can finally set aside his dishonesty if he is going to start being honest about his position on SSM now.

Slipery slope

----------

The heart of the slippery slope fallacy lies in abusing the intuitively appreciable transitivity of implication, claiming that A leads to B, B leads to C, C leads to D and so on, until one finally claims that A leads to Z. While this is formally valid when the premises are taken as a given, each of those contingencies needs to be factually established before the relevant conclusion can be drawn. Slippery slope fallacies occur when this is not doneóan argument that supports the relevant premises is not fallacious and thus isn't a slippery slope fallacy.

Often proponents of a "slippery slope" contention propose a long series of intermediate events as the mechanism of connection leading from A to B. The "camel's nose" provides one example of this: once a camel has managed to place its nose within a tent, the rest of the camel will inevitably follow. In this sense the slippery slope resembles the genetic fallacy, but in reverse.

----------

Hence my waiting for the goat argument, as SSM so obviously leads to people marrying goats.

He has already gone from Poly to Sister, Goats have to be next on the list

An article in the SGVExaminer.com newspaper, page B3 February 14 - 20, 2013

Penned by Robert Sundance.

Helps explain how and why small time police chiefs of small towns are and have become boot-lickers to the political connected and city council member's.

Why is it the blind eye is turned towards a illegal act by one of the politically connected and or J-walkers are roughted up and charged with felonies etc.

Allowing homosexual couples to marry and receive the same financial benefits that straight married couples have is the right thing to do.
If that should somehow result in allowing polygamous marriages, women should be allowed to have more than one husband as well as allowing men to marry more than one woman. This would not cause any more children to be born and would eleminate prostitution.
Time marches on: For the good of Planet Earth humans should stop overpopulating and using up the natual resourses which causes other species to go extinct.

Excellent post. I fully agree.
I don't! The only thing that will eliminate prostitution is extinction of humans.

No effect whatsoever so far

We have 10 states that legally recognize and preform same sex marriages

We have the District of Columbia that recognizes and preforms same sex marriages

We have one state that does not yet preform them in that state but does recognize all same sex marriages performed in other states

and a state in temporary limbo that did recognize same sex marriages and will likely again soon come June

and we have how many states so far that recognize poly marriages?

oh that is right.... none

they appear totally unrelated

and I am not going to talk about A leads to C ( sister ) before you can establish A leads to B (Poly )

so far... you got zip

Yes, and even if it does become legal, one would have to establish that it was specifically due to Same Sex marriage that it happened, a leap I for one will not automatically take.

then we can move on to his ( or your ) desire to marry your sister, goat or what have you.

Good, so... get to work, get out there and make it happen, get signatures for a ballot measure, or lawyers in line and I will be happy to watch from the sidelines.

I will even vote in your favor if it comes up.

but as least you can see.... so far... no connection, just opinions.

In the meantime, more and more states will be accepting and preforming Same Sex marriages, its time has come. Last I saw in the news there were even some Republican leadership getting on the bandwagon.

No, that's not it. It's because of an archaic law based on a old theory that it causes medical problems in the offspring. This has been proven mostly false.

You make fun of the goat argument against SSM then you use it yourself 3 hours later against other forms of marriage.

And then you call me a hypocrite.

The first step, which they have done, is to avoid prosecution. It's a long road, but if you're young and healthy enough you'll get so see the end of it!

No comprehension again Frankie?

The Goat argument is one we are waiting for YOU to make after you get past wanting to marry your sister, the next step in your slippery slope argument.

I am not making any slippery slope arguments at all, nor any argument against poly marriage, just pointing out that it isnít likely to happen soon.

Same old bullsh!t and diversion, dopey ad hominem and a good dose of nasty meanness against marriage for people you don't like. Nice!

I remember in the early days of same sex marriage there were people exactly like you. With the same dumb jokes.

You think it's funny and crack mean spirited jokes about people being denied equal protection. There are names for people like you. Hypocrite comes to mind.
