DOMA is a dead issue, as soon as they read the intent that was written for DOMA in 1996, it was going down.
That is animus, practically a written confession .... DOMA is toast
The question is really now only Prop 8
true. i'm just curious about the findings and writings from SCOTUS in regards to DOMA. it could set a precedent.

but wait??
doesnt that conflict with your normal line about california being a compleat mess? because the democrats are in charge?
I guess that means CA is not a compleat mess, or did you mean complete? The Democrats here make sure they regulate rabbits and it's Indian casino's. They must be complete.

like the fact that we dont want to go back there, like the republicans want to.
Then why do the D's keep repeating history?

yes.. it shares the precedent that prop 8 does, if they defeat it with standing.

But I doubt they will, animus is obvious, it will be easy for them to just strike it down outright.

I suppose it is also true however that animus can be used in quite a number of states.

Itís funny, neither of these rulings will have any effect on me, my family, and very few people that I even happen to know

But I am on the edge of my seat watching this, the advance of freedom, justice and equality.

It has been an interesting few days

Yeah... I guess it's kind of like when folks call it "the birds and the bees." Or when Kimare gets on here and tries to convince us that only straight people should marry because of apple trees and walnut trees.

Oh... Wait... That would be degrading to straight people too.

Seriously, I have no problem having homosexuality pointed out in nature. Heterosexuality exists throughout nature. Even monogamy is seen in nature. Do you have a problem with that?

you have to be more specific....

everybody "repeats history" in some way.

BUT in keeping you fools OUTA the whitehouse, we are trying to prevent another situation like iraq....

pre-emptive corporate wars are not in the publics interest.

esp when said oil cartels want the public to pay for it.

Reichardo...
i wouldnt be grilling you so bad on iraq, if Bush cheney had recanted their deeds...

the reason i brought up republicans in the whitehouse??? is because you mention democrats repeating history...

at least the demoncrats who supported that false invasion have recanted.....

but not Bush/cheney, or any of the crew...

cheney said hed do it ALL over again..

if we keep rethugs OUTA the whitehouse, we might have a chance at NOT repeating an event like that.

it is not like the neo-cons didnt have any precident as to what might happen.

they kNEW what would happen, but proceeded anyways.

Exactly

We have seen what trickle down coupled with deregulation has done. Banks failing, country going to debt faster, oil disasters etc etc etc.
Not going to repeat that history
I am willing to consider a republican candidate, if
He supports equality ( including same sex marriage )
Does not push for deregulation
Does not push for tax breaks while the nation is in deficit
I am actually for reducing spending, but not along with tax breaks as that defeats the entire purpose of reducing spending.
etc
Just consider mind you

i dont know of a rethuglican candidate that supports that agenda...

you just described what the democrats are for..

anything the democrats are for, the new new republican party is VEHEMENTLY against...

the ENTIRE mission of the republican party is a PRO business agenda.

so of course their central tenents are deregulating and privatizing everything they can, while giving HUGE tax breaks to their friends....

....and of course starting wars, so they can dole out HUGE NO BID contracts to themselves...(halliburton)

THOSE HAVE ALWAYS been the central tenantsof the rethuglican party, from US grant onward...
