April 03, 2013 Wednesday meeting, live.

The Council Sierra Madre, Ca. Chamber's are poorly lit, must be that Vampire's don't like too much light, didn't see any mirror's hanging on the wall either.

Looks like the writing is on the walls, dump the SMPD and hire the L.A. County Sheriffs Department, more cars and uniforms on the street at half the cost.

Sierra Madre owes $2.4 million dollars.

It's the 1,138 rights that straight couples have that gay couples don't. It's not the word we are fighting for.
Those aren't "right's" they are "privileges."

There is a difference, and one should no interchange the terms in a whimsical manner just to suit their argument.

Since Mike Touhey sold off the land and made his special deals then skipped town with his money.

We believe that citizens do not want this and they must be allowed to vote on whether they want our city land sold.

It's about our land and once it's built, the trees are never returned.

It's forever.

We don't need to commercialize our Civic Center.

You attempt to grasp at this "marriage is a right" but only in the case of homosexual and heterosexual two person unrelated unions.

What of poly-marriage and incestuous marriage? Are they any less in love? Should they be denied their happiness?

Sorry if I don't buy into your holier than though "I am fighting for equal right's" nonsense when you are really only interested in your own personal gain.

Me personally, my position is get government out of the marriage business, remove the benefits which in and of themselves do not treat people equally, and let people Unite in relationships as they choose.

I'm sorry that you are so upset that my position is far more one of "EQUALITY" and "INCLUSION for ALL" than your position.
I'm not stoping anyone from getting married but others are trying to stop me. How am I denying anyone anything??

How is it a privilege to be able to visit your spouse in a hospital if they are unconscious? I think that is a right? That's just one example. Get a clue what you are talking about before you spout off.

You should stew on my post a bit longer, it might take you some time to absorb it.

The government does not grant right's, by it's very nature the passage of a law granting something unto you is a privilege.

And I suggest you take your own advice, you too emotion to present a rational argument, you should take a step back before you "spout off."

BTW, I haven't "denied" you anything, I have TWICE voted NAY to a Constitutional Amendment to restrict or otherwise define marriage.

As you say, you should have a "clue before you spout off."

BTW, your information is a bit dated:

-In 2010, the federal Department of Health and Human Services issued rules that require hospitals participating in Medicaid, the government health program for the poor, and Medicare, the health program for seniors, to allow patients to choose who can visit and how often.

A 2010 DHHS news release said all visitors chosen by a patient or their representative -- including same-sex domestic partners -- are to be given "full and equal" access to patients. The hospitals are required to have written policies on visitation rights.

Those rules went into effect in January 2011. Hospitals that don't conform could be terminated from participating in Medicare and Medicaid, according to the Human Rights Campaign, a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender interest group that advocated for the rules.- http://www.pressherald.com/news/truth-test-mi...

It doesn't matter if you're gay, straight, jew or gentile, Catholic or Protestant, Hindu, Sikh or Muslim, Buddhist Taoist Atheist or agnostic. Rock n' roll, R&B, funk, dance, electronica, jazz, country or western. Black, white Hispanic or Asian. This marriage proposal might make you cry.

And anyone who even SNIFFLES watching this can't deny they don't understand SAME SEX MARRIAGE isn't any different than what they see here in this AWESOME proposal I love how he just kneels and waits for her answer, never says a word. Dude stole my script!!(It's the same fantasy ending I had in every one of my marriage proposal dreams and two realities.)

It ain't the equipment any of us (gay or straight) want to commit to. It's the person INSIDE the body.



Sort of sad if we think about it.

All these trolls thinking of their own mother's marriage as nothing more than a contact to be a bitch at a puppy farm.

Now watch what "marriage" means to most of us and enjoy!

<quoted text> Bragging and sharing stories with one's close circle of friends is entirely different than being a celebrity and using the media to announce your sexual orientation. Don't you agree? Besides, I've not heard of any heterosexual celebrities getting the waves and claiming "I'm straight", have you? It is a tactic dedicated solely to the public announcement of homosexuality. Nothing happened to make me any less reasonable that you thought me to be yesterday, Jared brought up the subject and I thought I'd comment on it. What is wrong with that? I haven't tried to use any media to announce my orientation, have you?
Every single solitary straight person who has publically announced their opposition to same-sex marriage is in essence "outing" themselves as proud heterosexuals.

You guys get on television and go on and on about the evils of homosexuality, which is an explicit endorsement of the notion that heterosexuality is THE ONLY acceptable orientation in their eyes.

Your very protest against gays and same-sex marriage is a flagrant example of how you proclaim your heterosexuality.

And Randy, you do use media to announce your orientation. You're here talking about it right now.

Bottom line, LGBT people are going to continue to "come out" until such a time that it is no longer necessary.

You might as well get used to it.

What will the great Obama do? Will his background as a street agitator prepare him for this? What will China do? China continued moving tanks and armored vehicles and flying flights near North Korea this week as part of a military buildup in the northeastern part of the country that U.S. officials say is related to the crisis with North Korea.

Have no problem with love or commitment or even contracts.

But none of that changes the distinction of marriage from all other friendships.

Inside or out, ss couples are ever only a duplicated half of marriage.

I thought I was just pointing out how idiotic it is to equate an ever only duplicated sterile half to the gender diversity of marriage.

Most people don't know I'm a lesbian trapped in a straight man until I tell them.

Kind of messes up your gay twirl, doesn't it.
