I think Piers is a tool, and enjoying this spotlight, but all these fools who want to deport him should realize that in the Bill of Rights, right above the Second Amendment they keep screeching about is the First Amendment.

That's problematic for them in this instance, but they wouldn't appreciate subtleties like that.

The whole thing is just a bunch of grandstanding anyway, by everyone in this sorry little Piers drama.

Liberals love legalizing what is meant to be illegal. Whats next? Are you going to legalize murder?

It won't be in all 50. It is only in the states with democratic senators, which is few.

HAR!HAR!HAR! "Sherlock "Marram" Holmes has it all figured out! You and I are the same person. We're busted!

It's a sign of mental illness and paranoia, thinking different people are one person.

You'll now be asked to explain how union contracts, which involve unions, are of any concern to me, who is neither in a union, nor working for a union company ?
Please, go ahead and try to make sense of this ? Explain it, if you can...
Its an ad hominem attack, something liberals do because they can't back up their claims.

I understand that a simple minded alcoholic would draw that conclusion.

P. Morgoon and the idiot from W. UK..

A foreign national acting as a subversive who seeks to undermine the sovereignty of our Constitution and our unalienable right to keep and bear arms for the defense of our nation should either be deported or thrown in a federal prison for insurrection and espionage.

We have our rights too!

Republicans are and have always been FAILURES.

The president of United States of America, has once again chided House Republicans as the clock continues to run out on a potential agreement before the December 31, 2012 dead line.

No Rose, it's nothing like Jim Crow Laws. Homosexuals are allowed to do everything a heterosexual can do. They can eat at the same tables, drink from the same fountains, they can even partake and marriage following the same laws as everyone else.
Dodge. You claim that marriage laws treat people equally because everybody can marry someone of the opposite sex. THAT'S like claiming Jim Crow Laws treated everyone equally because everyone could sit in the section assigned to their race.

I don't make my argument for gay marriage based on sexual orientation. I make it based on gender. A woman has the right to marry a man, a man should have that same right. A man has the right to marry a woman, a woman should have that same right.

The only one being laughed at here is you Rose. You are ignorant as a rock.
Since you can't counter my argument, you dodge, then make a lame jab at me.
That's why I laugh at you.

Stupid, I was just talking to your butt buddy Brian about marriage being a "states' rights" issue. VA...Virginia, state...(well, Commonwealth, Mr. TTAG)
Again, you can't counter my argument, so you just make a lame jab at me!

Nobody has the right to marry the same sex. Everybody has one right only, and that is the right to marry the opposite sex.
