Big D says he has nothing to hide so he doesn't care that Obama snoops on him. It's OK with him.
I bet he has curtains on his windows. But the fact is, privacy matters, even if you say you have nothing to hide.

If you really "have nothing to hide," then you should take the curtains out of your bedroom, and put in a camera that goes straight to a HAL 9000 computer for the world to see.

As Daniel Day Soloff wrote in the Chronicle of Higher Education, "I don't have anything to hide, but I also don't have anything I feel like showing you."

It's about things not being anyone else's damn business.

Soloff added that Joseph Stalin would've loved to have the power Obama has over the citizenry.

The question is where will Obama go with this power?

Dumb and dumber.

I rarely address the religious basis for marriage.

I kind of enjoy the hissy fit when I point out the social science basis;

At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.

No violation of freedom, no religion. Just a clear distinction between the two relationships.

Now, watch the pink brigade show up.

Smile.

I tried to tell Big D whether or not you have something to hide is not the point. He had no response, just pulled his disappearing act like he always does when stressed.

It's not hard to disprove your assertions because it is so amazingly infantile.

Does the state allow infertile heterosexual couples to legally marry?

Is procreation possible outside the legal protections of marriage?

If so your entire argument is down the drain.

'I' made no assertions. I simply stated the scientific basis for the social constraint of marriage.

You noted a minor exception the law allows for numerous reasons.

You then note a mating behavior consequence with detrimental results that the constraint of marriage is meant to protect from.

Care to try again?

Exactly, infants.....you're catching on.

As long as the couple, OPPOSITE SEX regardless of self identified sexual orientation, is willing to accept each other as HUSBAND AND WIFE, the state will allow them to marry.
Is procreation possible outside the legal protections of marriage?
So is love, sex, and cohabitation. Your point is? Society benefits when sex, and procreation take place within the marital relationship between husband and wife.
If so your entire argument is down the drain.
Crazy, I know but marriage is a union of both sexes. The state can declare a veggie patty burger, but that doesn't make it a hamburger.

Of course Judge Luis A. Lavin said the public interest would not suffer if the plant were to operate in the meantime?

Has this judge lost all the brain cells in his head?

This of course is America and we are still talking about California?

So you deduced I got my evolutionary proof from the Bible?

AND, there is money there? Damn, I'll split it with you if you help me find it!

What other conspiracy theories do you follow???

Where exactly did I assign blame to the Bush or Cheney? I simply said Cheney approved of the monitoring. I'd think that would make those who supported the last administration like Obama.
