true. i'm just curious about the findings and writings from SCOTUS in regards to DOMA. it could set a precedent.
Itís funny, neither of these rulings will have any effect on me, my family, and very few people that I even happen to know

But I am on the edge of my seat watching this, the advance of freedom, justice and equality.

It has been an interesting few days

Yeah... I guess it's kind of like when folks call it "the birds and the bees." Or when Kimare gets on here and tries to convince us that only straight people should marry because of apple trees and walnut trees.

Oh... Wait... That would be degrading to straight people too.

Seriously, I have no problem having homosexuality pointed out in nature. Heterosexuality exists throughout nature. Even monogamy is seen in nature. Do you have a problem with that?

you have to be more specific....

everybody "repeats history" in some way.

BUT in keeping you fools OUTA the whitehouse, we are trying to prevent another situation like iraq....

pre-emptive corporate wars are not in the publics interest.

esp when said oil cartels want the public to pay for it.

Reichardo...
i wouldnt be grilling you so bad on iraq, if Bush cheney had recanted their deeds...

the reason i brought up republicans in the whitehouse??? is because you mention democrats repeating history...

at least the demoncrats who supported that false invasion have recanted.....

but not Bush/cheney, or any of the crew...

cheney said hed do it ALL over again..

if we keep rethugs OUTA the whitehouse, we might have a chance at NOT repeating an event like that.

it is not like the neo-cons didnt have any precident as to what might happen.

they kNEW what would happen, but proceeded anyways.

Exactly

We have seen what trickle down coupled with deregulation has done. Banks failing, country going to debt faster, oil disasters etc etc etc.
Not going to repeat that history
I am willing to consider a republican candidate, if
He supports equality ( including same sex marriage )
Does not push for deregulation
Does not push for tax breaks while the nation is in deficit
I am actually for reducing spending, but not along with tax breaks as that defeats the entire purpose of reducing spending.
etc
Just consider mind you

Why has number 7 plastic come up?

Because if you are using it to consume food or beverage it's sloughing off poisons to your body.

i dont know of a rethuglican candidate that supports that agenda...

you just described what the democrats are for..

anything the democrats are for, the new new republican party is VEHEMENTLY against...

the ENTIRE mission of the republican party is a PRO business agenda.

so of course their central tenents are deregulating and privatizing everything they can, while giving HUGE tax breaks to their friends....

....and of course starting wars, so they can dole out HUGE NO BID contracts to themselves...(halliburton)

THOSE HAVE ALWAYS been the central tenantsof the rethuglican party, from US grant onward...

I guess all my railing against democratic forign policy didnt register with your brain at all??

even when i was directly adressing YOUR comments(over the past year)

my claim that you do not read people posts is a valid one.

and your reading comprehension sux too.

I have doled out my share of pain to the democrats on these threads, esp when it comes to forign policy, and most of the time i dont agree with it.

I agree with how obama is handing our friends.....but he needs to stop killing innocent civilians with drones!!

if the governemnt is going to convict and sentence (to death) terrorists in OTHER coutries??

they damn well better know they have the right guy..

I enjoyed senetor pauls fillibuster...

considering all the fillibusters that the rethugs have enacted WITHOUT actaully fillibustering??

it was refreshing....

Well they HAVE to change if they are ever going to win a national election again, that is what I am saying.

The Iraq war, was started over something that wasnít even true, and democrats are responsible for that too, never again should congress give up its right to declare a war, that is their job, not the President.

The Republican party HAS to change, or continue to dwindle.

I am not really a democrat, there are a lot of things I disagree with democrats with, but they are the only ones presenting viable candidates, I want the republicans to give me an actual alternative, but they have been unable to do so for a long time now.
