I want to propose the Hon Bundy for special envoy to end all rents and forget about the rents and leases too as these are inconvenient and go against the amendments. Must preserve the amendments and so we will not pay the rent. NO RENT. In order for this to work we need an off set; NO TAXES on the landlord/rich, as per a amendments. This will appease them and then we can get away with not paying rent as they will not pay taxes and so the baseline remains the same, like the amendments. This is trickle down economics at full trickle. As for all you folks worrying about the night time bug-lamped goings on at them there portopotty things, GO EARLY, or plan on staying late to read the amendments on all fours. While we are at it we need to get in some amendments saving wars pronto in order to buoy up our national buoy, what needs buoying. BaSICALLY; no RENTS, no TAXES, more WARS. The portopotty stuff is yours to do with as you please under the buzzing bug lites of fleeting fame.
SO, are you for christ or not? Are you for Cheney, or not? What of this ported patty thing? Are you in our Teaparty? I guess so, but you are not on all the talking points...please see the bulletin on the talking points and stay on the talking points as they are the talking points to talk about on them.

Good to hear You speak clearly and make a clear and reasonable request, TeaParty or not - YOU'RE O. K. Some of the posts have been confusing, others have been ongoing conversations between rivals as well as allies. They are rabble-rowsing to stimulate a response - AND WHAT A RESPONSE! I have detected something in the 'numbers' referred to in other posts: a lot of the references to Christian affiliation or 'God's chillun' are associated with - and in response to - accusations of shall we say "sexual immorality"
ALL OF THIS is NOT the beautiful Christianity I've been lucky enough to see.
If you don't know about the porta-potty, you really don't want to.

From The Civic Rights Litigation Clearinghouse
University of Michigan Law School

Case Name Hollingsworth v. Perry PB-CA-0029
Docket / Court 3:09-cv-02292-VRW ( N.D. Cal.)
State/Territory California
Case Type(s) Public Benefits / Government Services
Case Summary

On May 22, 2009, two same-sex couples who had been denied marriage licenses in California filed a lawsuit under 42 U.S.C. 1983 against the State of California in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Francisco Division. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel, asked the court for declaratory and injunctive relief, alleging a Fourteenth Amendment violation. Specifically, the plaintiffs claimed that California, by amending its constitution in 2008 to once again limit marriage to opposite-sex couples, had violated the due process and equal protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment.

On December 7, 2012, the Supreme Court granted certiorari, agreeing to review the case. The court ordered briefing on two questions on review:(1) whether the Equal Protection Clause makes unconstitutional California's definition of marriage as available only to different sex couples, and (2) whether the backers of Proposition 8 have standing to appeal the 9th Circuit decision striking it down.

On June 26, 2013, in an opinion by Chief Justice Roberts (joined by Justices Scalia, Ginsburg, Breyer, and Kagan), the Supreme Court found that nobody with standing to appeal had, in fact, appealed the district court ruling, and accordingly vacated that decision. This left in place the district court's decision striking Prop 8 down -- so same-sex marriage is legal is California.

You may remember the Kings. They were those nasty fellas that KABOOMED the New Jersey Devils two years ago and again the New York Rangers this season. Sorry my friend, at least you still have the Yankees back there to root for ;)
