we the people means everybody...

not just those who are accepted into your right wing, socially conservative world... you guys have some ideas about how society should look, the rest of us just dont share those.

the nation shapes itself, as the more enlighten folks among us can see.

you guys just dont get it do you???
what was offensive is comparing a monogamous loving relationship with a managi troi.... sort of like when the bigoted haters compare beastiality with homosexuality........a ridiculous comparison for sure...
confusing a stable lesbian or gay monogamous relationship, with group sex is easy for you reich wingers... because your brains are so limited...
are you saying there are not people that are living in love as 3?

nope....it does happen.

such is the nature of love.

Im saying that actual relationships tend to appeal to pairs..

THERE ARE some REAL three way relationships.....

I wont comment on how strong they may be??

it could be very strong...

but their numbers tell a story....

that cohabitating pairs are much more common.

and "threesomes' are genrally are about recreation.

mislead by who??

dick cheney?

nothing on the public record has shown that Bush even THINKS it was a bad idea...... he still spproves of the idea...... so how can you say he was mislead???

...... when HE doesnt even agree with you.????

those neo-con fools were planning to go into iraq, as soon as they found out iraq had the number 2 oil reserves on the planet.

it had very little to do with daddy!! or WMD, or spreading "freedom" to the middle east.

I just feel sorry for them, because the ENTIRE world is going the other way in SO many ways.

most of them dont realize just how much they owe to this capitalist society and all the socialist type infrastructure paid for, by progressive taxation on the rich(up to 90%)

most of them dont know what socialist, they actaully are!!

in truth?? AS SOON as anyone leaves their property, they are using socialism..

EXCUSE ME
Bush wasn't misled, the Merican public was misled by the Bush Administration on People for a New American Century, Billie Krystal's little group, most of whom ended up in the Bush White House.
From Scooter setting up shop in the Pentagon/Defense Intel Agency to cherry picked raw data, delete caveats and disregard real intelligence analyized by experts.
To Dick Cheney personally speaking to Military Intel Analysts when he didn't like what they had to report
to the administration relying on "Curve-Ball" Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi wo the CIA said was unreliable, and Ahmed Chalabi a convicted fraud/embezzler who is now in Iran and apparently was working for the Iranians....
Wolfowitz, Perle, Rumnuts, Condoliar, Elliot Abrams, Kenneth Adelman, Richard V. Allen, John R. Bolton, Stephen Cambone, Seth Cropsey, Devon Gaffney Cross, Paula Dobriansky, Aaron Friedberg,Francis Fukuyama, Daniel Goure, Fred C. Ikle,

Zalmay Khalilzad (was appointed in December 2002 as the president's "special envoy and ambassador at large for free Iraqis." According to the White House announcement, Khalilzad would "serve as the focal point for contacts and coordination among free Iraqis for the U.S. government and for preparations for a post-Saddam Iraq." Khalilzad's qualifications include not only advocating Saddam's ouster since the 1980s, but also his proven prowess in orchestrating the installation of the Hamid Karzai regime in Afghanistan after being appointed special U.S. envoy to Afghanistan in December 2001.)

Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, John F. Lehman, etc etc etc

they all misled the American public, are responsible for an illegal war, the deaths of hunddreds of thousands, scores more wounded, ethnic cleasning, and the destruction of a nation...

THEY ARE ALL WAR CRIMINALS

judging on how recalcitrant the rethuglicans in congress have been to abolishing farm and oil subsidies??? I think they believe

corporate socialism is good.

socialism for little people .... is bad.

yet we both know which type of socialism gets funneled RIGHT back to the top 1 percent.......both of them...(hahahahaha)

there will always be a vocal minority of "Phobes" here in america.

they are called social conservatives.

and they represent an ever shrinking slice of pure lunacy

(well you know the kind of outlandish stuff they post)

luckily they represent an older demographic and dont have much of a future.(and dont have much to say either)

the elections last fall were a good indication.!!

they lost bad, and still havnt figured out why

while the rest of Us keep telling them OVER AND over again why.

they basically have a war going on against every single group of people in this country, except the wealthy, whom they represent.

that is why we dont vote on minorty rights...
why dont you look it up??
No right was denied. The vote was for definitional constitutional clarification only. it seems some folks forgot marriage was a union of husband and wife. Everyone retained the same right prior to the vote.

I didn't say that, you did, and it is incorrect. Married people live longer, have better health, stability, and finances. It is a fact, it's not up for debate
Studies conducted on married people, of the husband AND wife variety, demonstrate this. That is correct. However that doesn't necessarily mean it would be applicable to married SSCs, male or female.
. Fortunately, the State already knows this, so do try to catch up. Marriage isn't ONLY about procreation.
Perhaps the state should recognize plural marriage relationships, if it already know this. Marriage isn't ONLY about two people.

do you live here??

the people were given their rights, after they were granted by a judge, like they should have been, long ago.

then the bigots voted on it, and that vote tried to TAKE peoples rights away.

BTW; your definiaton of maraige is narrow minded
..........and another tidbit for you...

we dont let the MAJORITy vote on the RIGHTS of the minority.

at least not in this country. this last point is likely to kill "prop hate" next week in court. good ridance.
