Smirk.
Your "reality" isn't worth the imagined paper it's written on.

You could shack up with a woman for 50 years. You could be totally monogamous, been a perfect partner, an excellent father to your offspring, etc. But if you don't have that "paper"--you know the one that you say "reality smashes"--you don't get to call yourself "married". You don't get the protections and benefits of marriage.

I think you've just defiled yourself again.

Stupid you, people have built and used storm shelters since they first settled in the Midwest. If you had a clue, you might understand. And if you realized where the headquarters of the U.S. Strategic Command was located during the cold war. it might further educate you.

This month released “Farm Vote Follies,” a list of the 46 Republican House members who abandoned the interests of taxpayers by voting against at least nine out of 16 reform amendments to the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013, better known as the 2013 Farm Bill.

The legislation, which was defeated by a vote of 195-234 on June 20, failed to provide sufficient reform of the federal government’s labyrinthine, outdated, and wasteful agricultural policies, and several lawmakers offered worthy reform amendments, only to see their efforts shot down.

In many cases, those amendments – which included reforms to the sugar program, which enriches a tiny number of sugar processors at the expense of consumers and sugar-using manufacturers; the Market Access Program, which pays for commodity producers to market their wares overseas and is currently paying for a reality television fashion show in India; and crop insurance, which cost taxpayers a record $14 billion in fiscal year 2012 – were defeated with an assist from Republicans whose putative fiscally conservative values vanished when opportunities to serve special interests arose.

Look around at others that claim people say what they have not said, those are the ones that are admitting defeat by being dishonest.

I've been reading the story about Detroit homes that list for a dollar but aren't sold, and passing through the parts about the decay made me think of Mikey the Stain.

Detroit has its rot, and now Civilization as a whole has too, thanks to SCROTUS and the Common Man.

so what ? It's called "THE FIRST AMENDMENT". Obviously you're a liberal, since you are implacably opposed to The First Amendment.

Wrong.

Many countries have no legal 'paper'.

Government involvement involves only limited 'benefits and protections'. Most benefits and protections are outside government control.

You make the ridiculous assertion that a piece of paper is the primary element of marriage. How romantic...

The bottom line is this;

A mutually sterile, duplicate gendered half of marriage has a piece of paper that claims they are the same as married couples.

LOL
