I can picture you as a malcontent kid. Sour face. Angry. Not believing in Santa! And then you grew up. And became a sour faced angry adult. And a jackass!

You have never been right once, why expect to be now. I had a very classic childhood, almost leave it to beaver era kind of childhood.

I did stop believing in Santa, and Jesus, and the tooth fairy earlier than some others around me but my parents cautioned me that although I knew better, not to disturb the fun others were having.

I still donít have a problem with children believing in stuff like that, but when they grow up ( or donít grow up as the case may be ) and want to taker their little beliefs and apply rules to others based on those beliefs, I stop going along

Silence is consent, and I do not consent to their fantasy controlling my life or the lives of others not of their little beliefs.

Right. Like I said. A sour faced angry adult.

All that paranoia about someone controlling you is silly. But how you're not going to go along with it makes me real proud of you Fruitloops!

What are you going to whine about after prop 8 is gone? Me, I'm gonna party but you will still be an angry malcontent.
Remember, shooting down prop 8 is a victory for polygamists too!
It is? Wow! I've read Prop 8 and the trial transcripts several times. Polygamy is nowhere to be found in there, but I'm sure you know what you're talking about. Polygamy will be legal in California when Prop 8 goes down, eh? Wonders never cease. Alert the media... they've been keeping it a secret, too.

Atheists don't believe in Santa, eh? I'm sure they also find it hard to believe that someone as stupid as you exists.

"lets get it right this time."

The brief is the truth that there are no WMDs in Iraq.

The democracy also fails, as none of the Iraqi groups want a puppet Iraqi president who is controlled by the US government.

Bush busts a move, and falls apart.

I understand English may not be your primary language, I will try to use small words.

I am not paranoid, I see people, right here in this forum, trying to control what other people not of their belief system can and cannot do based on their belief systems.

You are the pitiful little squealer, you cannot make a post without Jr High school level name calling, I do pity you, but as you have no control or influence on anyone, you arenít really a danger, just a laughing stock.

Nope not legal yet silly, but one step closer.

We got rid of that pesky "man/woman" part of "One Man One Woman" now all we gotta do is get you bigots to give up the "one" part.

Why is gender righteous and number "illegal"? Please tell us miss thing. We won't wait.

Prop 8 said marriage is for one man one woman. Prop 8 restricted marriage to only that. Prop 8 is about to be gone. It removes an impediment to both prohibitions, gender and number. We won't be dropping the gender part but keeping the number part of prop 8 that restricts number now will we miss thing? No we're righeously tossing the whole thing.

I know you hate poly. Tough sh!t toots! It's on it's way. But meanwhile please entertain us and tell us why you hate it! I love a good bigot trying to explain himself.

What a dope!

Despite anyone's personal beliefs or opinions, the issue of equality is at stake with same-sex marriage. Proposition 8 and any measure aimed at eliminating or restricting rights of any American citizen is discriminatory, period.
The intent of the US Constitution was to provide equality to all along with freedoms and rights. Prop 8 was illegal to begin with because it put to vote the possiblity of eliminating rights. The Constitution protects rights and guarantees the same rights to all. Selective rights is discriminatory.
You don't have to like it, but don't be so unAmerican as to discriminate and separate any group of people because of your own personal beliefs.

The "delay" is a violation of city codes which prohibit the council from "impeding governmental responsiveness or efficiency."

Regardless of the results, he plans to file a report with the public integrity division of the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office.

Gee.... I don't know... why is number "illegal?" Could it be because there's a law against it? Nah.... that's too obvious for you. It must be illegal because same sex marriage is illegal.... nah.... that's OBVIOUSLY not true. Gee whiz? What is stopping anyone from marrying everyone else? Let's all get married and make the USA one family. Think of the savings.... there would only be a need for ONE tax return.

Sorry, I'm not buying that load. The Constitution grants equal protection of the law, not equal rights.
