If you write an article on "Restaurant Inspection Grades in Glendora" wouldn't it be useful to name those that did poorly?

I'll save everyone the trouble and call out those that rated below 89 which is a B rating.

1) Palms Family Restaurant scored 82, B rating. No surprise here, this place will make you sick just opening their sticky menus!

2) Chili's scored 83, B rating. No excuse a chain restaurant this big should do so poorly. However I'm not surprised.

3) Coco's scored 86, B rating. Another chain restaurant that should know better, though if places were rated on service this place would probably get an F.

4) Sushi Umi scored 88, B rating. I really love Sushi but when it comes to dealing with raw fish, a B rating is a huge red flag for me.

There were 10 places had a score of 90 which is still an A, but barely.

If per say I had a satellite dish, and my service was through that dish, my location could be in any state or it could just say the Untied States. Now I do have a land line, a DSL hookup to the Internet, could it be that the physical location of my ISP is in Madison Wis.? Then again I could use a proxy server, and post could say that I was in Bangkok.
But do continue on being an asshat, after all that's what you do so well.

5) Glendora Country Club was one of them.

To put all of this in perspective, both 7-Eleven's received a 99 and 100 and we all know they let barely warm hot dogs tumble on that roller rack for who-knows how long... so how bad are these other places to not score as well?

Check the local hospitals for more rating comments coming from those that have eaten there and are in the process of being treated.

Procreation is a dead argument, even the Supreme Court joked about it.

Should they deny anyone over 55 a marriage license, how about Vets that lost the use of the lower half of their bodies, should they be denied marriage licenses?

There is no law, anywhere, that will deny a couple a marriage license because they do not intend or cannot have children.

Procreation is a dead argument with respect to same sex marriage.

They hang onto that, because they donít have anything else to cling too, like rats running to the last dry spot on a sinking ship.

I was actually surprised they brought it up in front of the Supreme court.... you donít bring up an argument that you are sure to lose.

Rule #1 for a lawyer is never ask a question you already know the answer too, and they failed that one?

They were stupid for even mentioning it, there has never been a law that would deny a couple the right to marry based on intent or ability to have children. It was lost before they even said it.

Newsflash!
We live in US of A, procreation isn't a requirement for marriage. Ergo the rest of your comment regarding financial benefits for women with children is a bit irrelevant in the matter of the question of validating same sex marriage in the US.
The real motive for most couples in the US, apparently, is a pronouncement of love which is recognised in marriage. The legal ramifications of the contract are icing on the cake.
Goverment could not and should not regulate the love between people - it is unconstitutional, it is private mater between individuals and nobody have right to dictate that relationship. I think we are on the same page here?
The marriage as goverment protected institution is not a registry of people in love, it is goverment enforced contract to protect procreation and set of tax breaks with same intention.
The reason why general public invest in procreation, because the future of the nation depends on it. The today children will pay tax tomorrow and cover the cost of these tax brakes

By the way, check out the report from SSA - we are at the real danger that in 50 years for every working person it would be 4 not working senior and two of them with Alzheimer's. Although US so far has a good chance to avoid it all Europe certainly goes to that future.

Those in power will always seek more of it if left unchecked, out founders warned of this, and we have failed in our duties. We now have a majority willing to bow to their overlords. we are truly ripe for a dictator.
Take same sex marriage for instance. Here are the homosexuals, they look at the heterosexuals and say, "Hmm, look, they get a piece of paper from the government which states they are "married". Then they get to use that piece of paper to get a bunch of "stuff" from the government." -now- rather than state the obvious- "Hey, I have this little thing here called the Constitution (either state or US), and Mr. Government, I can't find anything in here where it says you have the power to control, regulate, define, or otherwise provide benefits in regards to the personal relationships of your citizens! So, how about you get yourself back in line with your enumerated powers and get the hell out of the personal lives of your citizens."
Nope, instead the homosexual community says: "Hey, Mr. Government, could you please regulate my personal life too?"
And you fools claim you will be more FREE if the government "ALLOWS" you to marry. Enjoy your servitude.
<quoted text>
No, I have explained this to you before, perhaps it didn't sink in. The SCOTUS identified the government's power to REGULATE marriage in 14 rulings.
And don't pretend to know what my "beliefs" are, you haven't a clue. Unlike you, I do not argue a position based on my personal wants, desires, or beliefs. I argue them based on the Constitutional principles upon which this Republic was founded.
BTW, I asked you a question that you simply ignored. You have claimed all these mystical powers of the judiciary, and I asked a very simple question. Where are these claimed powers found in Article III of the US Constitution?
OK, then let's take back the Fourteenth Amendment and let people own one another. Let's allow slavery to flourish in the country again. Let's allow segregation of schools. Let's allow discrimination based on race, gender, religion, etc.

Such pesky government interference...

Look, our country EVOLVES. It doesn't stay stagnant. Decisions are made and processes are created in a manner that you may not agree with. But you are powerless to do anything about them.

The LGBT Community is aware of the processes necessary to get the rights and protections of marriage that we feel, as citizens, we deserve.

We will work within those systems, whether you believe they fall in line with the Constitution or not, in order to obtain our goals.

Rightly or wrongly, these are the processes that we have access to at this point in the game.

We like to refer to it as our unalienable right to the pursuit of happiness.
