No point fighting them because the vast majority of human beings don't think beyond right now. They just do what is easy. Saving for something a little more expensive and of better quality, thus longer lasting isn't a priority for the impatient. We live in a disposable society. Just enjoy the landfill.
Yeah but if you can get the exact same product at Walmart for half of what the Mom and Pop sells it...

Not everybody is made of money! It's either buy it at Walmart or do without it for many people.

What would you do?

You have something against nice teeth and long hair? I've been told I look like several celebrities. They've changed as I aged and cut my hair, Robert Plant & Roger Daltry were first (the hair was sunbleached blonde in my youth and very very long), Kenny Loggins (hair grew back darker after cutting it for grad school interview process). A few years and a hair cut later (for a job) I became Chuck Norris. And Jesus (that was one that stuck with me from teenage years to present each time my hair was long). That was hilarious. I told people to be careful as I might kick their arse instead of saving it. This was after I opened my own business and didn't have to answer to anyone about appearances. I wear it in a ponytail and cut off about a foot every three years to give to Locks of Love.
The Chuck Norris one was probably the most accurate for up close. I had a gaggle of kids follow me around a store one time giggling and hiding behind displays to get a peak at me. When I walked out they were waiting and sent the youngest one over to ask if I was Chuck Norris. Only he was a little confused and asked if I was Bruce Lee (absolutely no resemblance whatsoever). I nearly fell over with laughter. Kids can be really cruel at times, but they can be very cute and entertaining too.
Oh, I have been propositioned by gay men on a few occasions. Politely declined.

Again what's the topic? Something about gay marriage right??
Actually the topic at its root is about marriage equality.

Unfortunately your limited brain capacity doesn't afford you the opportunity to critically analyze complex topics.

I'm sure I'm not the first (I'm not interested in reading the first 163,906 posts) but it seems to me as slightly inane, that the government has ANYTHING to do with marriage.
Perhaps in the pre-1960s, before "the pill", but now it seems more and more ludicrous. With the realization anyone could partner with anyone without lasting societical "shame" or govermental approval our society changed.
Without the "they'll have babies and improve our society" rational, there's no longer a valid political reason for government influence and control.
I'd suggest the government back away from the "partner approval" process and allow marriage, between whoever, be handled by religous groups. Let the government confine themselves to the roll of servants (ever hear of "public servants?") and process paperwork (passports and such), and not make decisions about our lives.
Associated with this would be the repeal of the absurd tax breaks given to married people in the hope they'll have kids...we don't need more kids now..we need an answer to overpopulation. And this tax income should help our country out of the fiscal hole we sit in now.
Sorry if I'm just repeating what thousands may have already suggested.
What do you have to come here for with all that common sense and spoil it!

Nobody cares about a man with a bunch of wives in polygamous relationships, but what about a woman with a bunch of husbands?

IT'S NOT ABOUT THE SEX!!!!!!!!!!
YES IT IS!!!!!! Other wise why would it matter who married who. C'mon Jared, think about it. Marriage, not individual ones, but the institution is about the sexes, what they do, have sex, and what that sex creates, little Jareds. That's why blood relatives, other than first cousins, are barred from marrying
It's about the rights and benefits that we are denied when we are in the same type of relationship as straight married couples.
You were married, had all those bennies, just like any other OPPOSITE SEX married couples. Let's not for get the mixed orientation OSCs.
. Medical benefits and rights of spouses, tax benefits, inheritance etc. 1,138 rights and benefits we are denied.
So u want a gov't Benny pkg with your same sex partner?

So what? If all participants are up for it, more power to 'em. Think of the benefits the kids will have, two moms and a dad or two dads and a mom. More is better right? So long as they're loved and not abused.
A duplicated redumbant half is better that a mom and dad? Do you have ANY common sense?

Which of your parents would you eliminate?

Idiot.

What about her? Imagine her pay per view sports events, beer and pizza bills.
