Is it like when I say poly marriage deserves the same respect and consideration as same sex marriage and you retort "you're lying"?
Then I have to argue that I am not a liar (the straw man) and you get off the hook so you don't have to argue against equal rights.(the real argument).
Let me know Miss Thing.
It's like when you lie and say I hate polygamy...
It's like when you lie about not being anti-gay and then use anti-gay epithets...
It's like when you lie about the topic being marriage equality...

Sure we do, arguments about marrying your sister for example as an attack on Same Sex Marriage.
Yes. Or when you use it against polygamy. But I like your "marry your goat" one even better.

Feb. 26, 2013..

The entire city council, planning commission and planning department should be ashamed of themseleves for their lack of professional training and ethics applied to Avalon Bay housing project. Just like a bunch of stinkOrats.

Glendora, California has wasted millions of dollars on lost and hopeless projects and political influence dreams (scams is more like it).

And once again, where in the Constitution does it say equal protection doesn't apply to groups that are small in number?

Please indicate how property disbursement will be allocated in a poly marriage where a man has say 4 wives.
wife # 1 , married 15 years,
wife #2, married 10 years,
wife #3 Married, 5 years,
wife # 4 married 1 year,
The husband wishes to divorce wife #1. Will she get the house, and a bulk of his assets? How will that be fair to the 3 remaining wives.
He wants to divorce all 4, how will the property be split, will it be based on duration of each marriage.
The husband dies, at that point all 4 are widows, tell me who will receive his social security, will each of them receive the same?
As you can see same sex marriages will not affect any standing laws.
Where in the Constitution does it say the difficulty of applying equality is a litmus test for granting it? It doesn't dummy.

That it would be complicated is irrelevant. It wouldn't be that complicated anyway.

Try again. It's hard to argue against equality eh Fruitloops?

So he does it again.

Priceless!

P.S. You hate polygamy
I am not anti-gay
The topic is marriage equality not my veracity.

And I ain't lying!

P.P.S. you are a liar.

He says polygamy doesn't deserve respect because there are not a lot of polygamists.

I say that argument is bogus.

Where's the straw man?

Looks like the Glendora, California political machine buried deep between the legs of those perverted policial wacko's have unleashed their band of crazy poster's attacking a 71 year old senior citizen and voting residnet of Glendora, California.

The real problem are the unethicial people on the Glendora city employement, and how they lost and misplaced $24 Million Glendora residents tax dollars?

Really sad! It all boils down to accounting...you can't take out what you don't put in...So many of the population doesn't understand that. As the numbers of dependents begin outnumbering the numbers supporting, something has to give and the losers will not be happy....Maybe they could co-habitat or move to another and lesser expensive area. There are many people in our community who might benefit from a room renter.....More to come!

The whole problem of Socialism is being fueled by the #1 Socialist/Communist at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. District of Corruption. He has just about completed the transition of The U.S, from a freedom loving productive society, to a useless Socialist, I will give you anything you want freeloaders.

This was wasteful spending even when the RDA was in effect. Time to stop relying on other people (taxpayers) and agencies to pay for your rent.

So Sharon Green is under the impression the city should help her though Gov. Jerry Brown terminated redevelopment agencies? City services should suffer more to make sure they can help pay the rent of her and others? The city should fight this and the arrogance of even thinking she's entitled to the assistance should amaze me but sadly it doesn't. Maybe she should get some help from her two friends that make themselves look like idiots at every council meeting.

Radioactive fish: An article and photo caption in the Feb. 26 Section A about marine animals contaminated by radiation referred to cesium-37 as a known waste product from Japanís Fukushima nuclear disaster. The references should have said cesium-137.

Wrong again Frankie, have you ever been right? even once?

If they didnít care about the people that want same sex marriage do, like I donít care what the Brown family does, they would not be upset at their getting married and try to stop them, as I am not upset with the Brown family and am not trying to stop them.
