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.

Anything's better than what's been posted before this one:

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by a vote of 195-234 on June 20, failed to provide sufficient reform of the federal government’s labyrinthine, outdated, and wasteful agricultural policies, and several lawmakers offered worthy reform amendments, only to see their efforts shot down.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

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.
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.

learn to read, I didn't say national recognition liar
I said federal recognition, which they have, every legally preformed same sex marriage is recognized legally on the federal level.
You should learn to be more specific, when you post. Your statement leaves the implication that SSM is legal at all over the country. More propaganda. If you were interested in posting accurate truths, you would have said "at the state level and recognized by the Fed", not a broad, sweeping post like "at the state and federal level". This second one makes it sound like it's a national institution, which it is not. Funny, though, that none of the other posts got a response from you. Just this one......

No, they do not, as the Constitution does not enumerate any mariage rights. It leaves the power to make such laws up to the individual states.
Can't defy what isn't there....

Or are you commenting that your saying they are not really married carries exactly the same weight and validity as if I said that Christian marriages are not actually married.
Zero
My counter is reality, I have already destroyed every procreation argument you brought up, dashed all religious references to dust, and the law stands firmly behind what I am saying. Your arguments are not only countered, they are totally destroyed.
What is countered and destroyed is the sense of normalcy in our society. Our moral compass. Your corporate masters have no care about that.

You lied about what I said, I didn’t say national recognition, I said federal recognition, every same sex couple legally married in a state that allows same sex marriage is also recognized as married on the federal level.
when you have to resort to lying about what other people have said, then you are admitting defeat.
I have also stated that a majority of voters in the US approve of same sex marriage, which is indicated in every major poll, including the polls owned and operated by Fox news.
Not at all. In fact, you omit any polls that disprove your bs...
