1) Wrong, because legislated recognition is not the same as universal recognition.
2) I though it was YOU who had the tubba-blubba that earned the moniker of "pocchari", as you had the mistaken idea of posting your lardass in here, for all to laugh at...
3) Having some people ignore common sense arguments does not invalidate the truth.
4) Who said that abusive foster care was better ? You, perhaps, have some evidence that I said that, as you are attacking me for it ?
5) This is a proven and time-tested truth, as well, as Chongo like to drone on about morons worrying about children. It is also the opinion of others, not just me.
6) Your idea seems to be that one kind of broken home is better than another type of broken home...interesting. Fallacious, but interesting.
7) Why should they be given a second rate home, at all ? There are many loving heterosexual couples wishing to adopt, not merely foster. Wake up, moron. And the voice of reason and sanity will not be silenced by an idiotic "STFU" from you.
8) You spend a lot of time there, must be a living nightmare for you.
9) Many things make them unequal. Do you, perhaps, have anything to offer to prove that they are not unequal ? My most unshakeable offering is empirical evidence.
10) Thinking will not give me any aneurysm, perhaps your stupid ass should not use words that you cannot spell ?
1) Everyone is allowed an opinion. There are some people who hate chocolate ice cream, doesn't mean we should stop making it.

2) I don't even know what a "pocchari" is Ace.

3) Truth in what? Some people think little green men from UFOs exist idiot. It does not spell out they have a handle on common sense.

4) http://www.webmd.com/mental-health/news/20051...

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php...

5) Prove it.

6) Gay famlies don't automatically constitute a "broken home" moron. That's your opinion and not fact.

7) Afgain it's your opinion gay famlies are "second rate". Find one article which has the same cllaim dumbshit. Add to that thousands of kids are left in foster care and as orphans despite the number of heterosexual and gay couples who adopt so your ignorant "point" is moot.

8)??? Time where?

9) You've provided no evidence to back even one of your claims. Liar. Wear the sign. LOL!

10) Myself I think you react and not think. Like an amoeba. Just a note.

Well, the biggest flaw that i can see is that you are trying to reason, at all. And your silly analogies are not effective, either. Donkeys and zebra have nought to do with the topic at hand.
Now, you typed this: "And if you don't believe heterosexual couples and same sexed couples are "not equal at all" ", and, the fact is that I DO believe that are unequal, as they have neither balance, nor procreational abilities, nor do they have the same recognition that heterosexual couples have. They have no place in society. Not to say that they cannot be couples, just no valid reason to call themselves "married". If gaining rights is the point of SSM marriage, they covet something that they do not rate. If the game is rights of inheritance, they can use power of attorney. There is simply NO REASON for a mismatched set of lovers to lay false claim to an honor that isn't theirs to enjoy. SSM is a fruitless endeavor. Empirical evidence is all that you need, to see that. Any further questions are pointless, as the issue is invalid. We are biologically designed to mate as opposite, I don't care if the genitalia is being misused, it is not the proper format, for marriage to be bestowed.
Now, if you have any questions, or wish to explore common sense any further than this, I suggest that you call 1-800-I-AM-A-DUMBASS...Don't forget to call me names and use an analogy that makes little to no sense. If you think that you are Don Rickles, guess again...
Don't forget genius....this is merely your opinion.

By the way....since you're so much into grammar you need to capatilize "I" when referring to yourself.

"...fact is that I DO believe that are unequal..." - Did you mean 'they' perhaps?

"...just no valid reason to call themselves "married"." - Did you mean to say 'there is just no valid reason to call themselves "married".???

---Next time remember....you suck at grammar as much as anyone in here and your opinion does not designate fact.

Just an FYI friend.

It is even less beneficial, for the majority of us, to waste U.S. Government resources, attempting to re-define the term "marriage", for the benefit of less than 10% of the population. Way to go, chump...
Exactly how are 'US. Government resources' going to be allotted towards allowing gays to marry?

What a load of bullshit.

If anything else it's a waste of time and resources to deny them marriage given you and others spend time and efforts to stop them over nothing given you can find no viable harm in it.

You're a moron buddy.

You should call the court and let them know they got it wrong in Loving V Virginia when they used the precedent set forth in Skinner v Oklahoma that marriage is a "right" when they made their decision.
I am sure they would love to hear from ya Rose.
Stupid, my claim was: Skinner v OK was not a case about marriage. And it wasn't. It was a case about using forced sterilization as a means of punishment. Were any marriage laws changed because of Skinner?

"Your take" is erroneous. You are witnessing the phenomenon of common sense refusing to be buried. You, surely, cannot expect 90% of us to clam up, so as to allow 10% of the population to take control ? How about simply speaking for your end of the spectrum, the "lower than 56 IQ points" crowd, and not attempting to identify with the smart ones of us that have the real grasp of the situation ?
You mean to to say those who don't agree with your opinion.

Sorry bud.....it's not your world and there's a lot of thinking adults out there.

Too bad for you.

Really Rose? Where is the check on the court?
You would know the answer to this if you actually studied the writings of the founder's. But since you haven't you will simply reply with more of your nonsense that has no meaning or relevance to the argument.
You're claiming we don't have checks and balances in our system of government? That was what I said, dummy.

Skinner v Oklahoma did, they just affirmed it. Not once does the court say "Marriage is a Right" outside of the reference to Skinner v Oklahoma Rose.
That's why they cited Skinner v Oklahoma. Stop trying to act as if you understand law because you watch Judge Judy.
Whatever, b1tch.

She ain't skinny but she ain't bad. Actually out of Dan's league. He's a lucky man for such a dopey jackass.

I can't bring myself to make fun of his innocent wife even though he's done it to me.

But I won't hesitate to call Dan a loudmouthed jerk! And a real jackass! And dope.

P.S. I think he stopped responding to me, like Rose_NoHo. Can't take the heat. Pussies.

One THOUSAND, five hundred and fifty nine posts and yet you still cannot identify a viable harm that gay marriage causes.

You're no marksman friend.
