Yes, you are lying. Post a link to where I complained about the Loving v VA decision, or admit you are lying.
So you are happy with the requirement the SCOTUS put on marriage being a "right"-

Essential to our existence and survival?

No, he said that it wasn't a decision to be left to 9 unelected officials.

He is correct, based on the Constitution. But then again, you don't understand the Constitution.

Biden was arrogant, and offered nothing for solutions to the problems of jobs, economy, debt, foreign policy,- mostly he was on the defensive.

I counted Biden's 55 interruptions while Ryan was talking.

Uncle joe was fighting hard to keep his career politician job he's had since 1973

Forty-eight percent of voters who watched the vice presidential debate think that Rep. Paul Ryan won the showdown, according to a CNN/ORC International nationwide poll conducted right after Thursday night's faceoff. Forty-four percent say that Vice President Joe Biden was victorious. The Republican running mate's four point advantage among a debate audience that was more Republican than the country as a whole is within the survey's sampling error.

woah!! that is what i thought too.
I thought condoms wre long before i became an adult.....
it seems their use is still in question.
the religious right want you to have abortions??/ yet they dont want to prevent them either....
I only conclude that they love the poor and ignorant, their best constituents!!
Biden was just plain disrespectful...He thought he can come out and be aggressive but it backfired...He ended up looking stupid. Biden's rude behavior was a bit baffling and un-presidential. I did not agree with everything he said, but if he wipe the facial expressions off his face he would have been better off. I thought Ryan was much stronger than I anticipated. Behaving in a courteous manner served him well. Vice President Joe Biden claimed that the administration wasn't aware of requests for more security in Libya before the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi during Thursday night's debate, contradicting two State Department officials and the former head of diplomatic security in Libya.

"We weren't told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there," Biden said.

In fact, two security officials who worked for the State Department in Libya at the time testified Thursday that they repeatedly requested more security and two State Department officials admitted they had denied those requests.

Joe lied. It should not be surprising that Biden flat out lied about the requests for more security in Benghazi. It just proves that we need to get Obama and Biden out of office as soon as possible. They either are too incompetent to know what is going on in their intelligence and state departments, or they lie to cover up their inadequacies. Either one is a reason to vote them out.

when asked which he feared more?? a nuclear armed iran, or another war?..... ryan chose another war???
whoa!! that will go over well!(not)
he also told the country that he and romney will fight to make abortion illegal.......
a real turn off if you ask me!!
I can see that gay twirl and Obamanation have the blind leading the blind.

Biden "spent his whole life working for the middle class."

After over 36 years in Washington, the middle class is living the results of his 'work'.

And he's bragging???

The facade of normalcy that prevented proper protection for the embassy in Libya resulted in the careless and needless deaths of four Americans.

That distortion and facade of normalcy permeates every aspect of this Administration. The disrespect and smirk of Biden only exposed the consistent lack of character.

Interesting how you get 'judged' for simply stating obvious facts.

Don't they understand how it exposes their denial and blatant stupidity?

Amazing!

Isn't that what the courts are supposed to do? What they were created to do? And of course they are un-elected - they are supposed to be above petty politics, in the ideal.

If laws are passed to take away basic human and civil rights from any group of Americans, shouldn't they have the ability to address this with the Court? Isn't out Government designed to protect ALL of our rights?

If that is not the purpose of the SC, why were three branches of government created in the first place?

By the way, you're spelling "Derucki" wrong.
What tapes Skippy?

Mike DiRucci. That's right jackass, DiRucci.

Is your argument about the judge's decision is that you think I spell my name wrong? Priceless.

Even the people cannot vote into law something which is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court is there to prevent such a thing from happening.
