Big D is not quite ready for the Modesto comedy clubs.

I don't know if you've ever been to Modesto but I have had that unfortunate unpleasantness due of course to an evil she-woman. Screw her and her dusty little sh!thole town! Sorry. Got carried away.

Chinese officials described the regime in the North as behaving like a "spoiled child North Korea's Kim Jong Un."

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, for leading his country to disaster and the world close to war.

Kim is derided as "Little Fatty" or "Fatty the Third."

We already have Thor's day ( Thursday ) once a week, that is as much recognition as any other religion and more than most.

You know why I won't stoop to answering the question "Why are there gay people?" It implies that there must be something wrong-a question that need answering--a great mystery to unravel.

The way I see it is if my attraction to me doesn't bother me, then why should it bother you? Why must you understand it?

Why do some guys like blondes? Why do some women like guys with blue eyes? Why do I like cabbage but not kraut? Why do I love the color red, but hate the color navy blue?

Do any of these questions require an answer for them to just be accepted?

I, personally, can't understand why guys are attracted to women. I've never experienced it. I've never even had the slightest crush on a woman. It completely baffles me. I like women. I don't hate them. But I am not attracted to them in the least.

However, I'm able to just accept that you like women and leave it at that.

You need to do the same for homosexuality. Stop asking "why". Just accept that we are the way we are.

This is because most if not all Republican's are filthy wankers.

They got this McConnell recording they told me because of the tackiness and the horrible things that McConnell was discussing.... That is why I think they recorded it.

Why do you bother asking these questions? I wasn’t aware that these other sexual orientations were considered disorders.
I never said they were.
You’re wandering away from the purpose of getting a marriage license.
Quite simple, its to be legally recognized as husband and wife. It also ensures that any children born into the marital relationship, unless there is evidence to the contrary, are presumed to be the husband's, the legally reconized father of the children. Presumption of paternity.
One desires to be married to the partner of their choosing and reaping the benefits of such an arrangement.
According to the state, that "partner of one's choosing" is still dicated by the state, legally that is. The state determines from what categories, one may choose, or not choose. A man may wish his brother to be his "partner of one's choosing", but the state's says "no bennies for you"! If its okay for opposite sex first cousins to marry, but not siblings because of the possibilty of sexual reproduction, why would such a prohibition be appled to same sex siblings who want to marry, or perhaps just get the bennies?

The problem is you wish to use the "partner of one's choosing" line to support SSM, but either are unwilling, or unable to see the possible ramifications from that argument.
I do believe couples who marry are more apt to stay together than couples who simply cohabitate.
It has been shown that men and women who marry tend to stay together longer than those who cohabitate.
Another question you need not ask. The answer should be obvious. Legal contract, yes. Religious, maybe but not necessarily. Nationwide recognition so the legal aspects are uniform across the country.
Each state determines its marriage laws. States do not have to honor licenses granted by other states. For example a license to practice law, or carry a firearm.
Yup, or husband and husband or wife and wife.
Except, at least legally in 32 plus states, and most countries. Of those states that have legal SSM, does the state actually pronounce the SSC, "husband and husband", or "wife and wife"?
He’s gay, that makes it a lie
Makes what a "lie"? So if a self identified gay man marries a woman, or a self identified lesbian marries a man, they're both lying? Even if both parties are aware? I wonder if Mr & Mrs. Josh Weed know?
Which state? Mine, yours, someone else’s?
Here's what I wrote:

A state could grant two same sex adult siblings a license too. The state can grant any license it so chooses.
What matters is that they have the desire to marry. Because they want to make a life long commitment to each other.
Again so what? Why does it matter, to the state/society that two men/women wish to make a commitment to each other? Why does it matter that the state call a personal intimate sexual relationship between two men/women "marriage"? As oppossed to a civil union? Or even recognizing it at all.
Animal behavior. In several species a new male may enter a social group and if he’s big enough and bad enough he kills off the previous dominant male and all of his offspring, making room for his own. Cats are a prime example. At one time in our development it is likely that something similar was rather commonplace. But we’ve advanced continuously to the point we’ve reached today and will continue to advance. Most of us don’t think conquering a village and enslaving the survivors & taking the women as mating partners is okay. I hope.
Did this happen a often in American history? If so when and where? Pre colonial times? Colonial times? Post?

Hence the difference between marriage and ss couples.
