as an aside, I once let a guy in a parachute jump out of a balloon I was piloting at the time, he said the experience was one in a lifetime jumping into still air like that.
I was pretty young and a rather rookie pilot at the time, I told him it was a once in a lifetime event for me too, loosing that much weight out of the balloon at 10,000 feet all of a sudden, an experience I had not had yet.
I was frantically dumping air out of the envelope, I have been in a terminal decent in a balloon for my license, but never what you would call a terminal accent ( chuckle )

:-D At least you didn't get to take something permanent out of your experience....

"If the federal government recognizes polygamy it will be much easier to repeal the state laws against it. In CA, one of these state laws is PROPOSITION EIGHT."
HUH? Prop 8 has nothing to do with polygamy you moron. 2 1/2 years latter and you still are clueless as to the very topic of this thread.
STFU with the name-calling until you type without making any errors, you moron.

What posts? That's what I'm saying, you never mentioned it. I can't provide evidence to something that doesn't exist.
Which is exactly why I'm saying, it doesn't exist. You've never mentioned hermaphrodites and if you're so high and mighty on this thing and all "nobody-should-dare-get-o ff-topic-with-me" then you'll stay on topic and enlighten us about what you think about hermaphrodites marrying.
Otherwise you're just as dabbled in double standards as you and those who agree with you accuse our side of being.
You claim that hermaphrodites are neither man nor woman. Wrong, they are both. They have twice the entitlement to marry the same sex that any others do.

Enough with your hypotheticals about poly marriage, it's clear enough you don't support it.
"Proposition 8 (ballot title: Eliminates Rights of Same-Sex Couples to Marry. Initiative Constitutional Amendment; originally titled the "California Marriage Protection Act")[21][22] was a California ballot proposition that changed the California Constitution to add a new section 7.5 to Article I, which reads: "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.""
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Propo...
The ballot title of Proposition 8 did not in any way mention polygamy or polygamous relationships or marriages. It only mentioned the restrictions of the marriage rights of gay couples.
Now: I am going to go back through every single one of your comments posted on this forum and mark all of them "off-topic". Why?
This topic has nothing to do with the right to polygamy. If you're interested in advocating for the legal recognition of it in California, you can find a forum about it and comment all you like. If none exists, you can attempt to create one. But don't whine about it here. It has no place and your petty attempts to make Prop 8 out as anti-poly don't work now, nor did they ever.
Ta ta!
You, sir, do not have any authority to moderate anything about this forum. Enjoy marking all those posts as "off-topic". You have just joined the "obsessed" crowd to which JizzyTurd and Chongo are fully-fledged members.
Cheerio. See ya in 3 weeks, or so ...

I was scared and pumped on adrenaline. I jumped too soon. I misjudged how high we were. Maybe 12 feet. It hurt for a while and a little ever since but nothing debilitating until recently. Now I cannot walk and the docs aren't giving me a good prognosis. I had another surgery yesterday. Laposcopic surgery. Modern medicine is a blessing.
My age and the old injury combined, and here I am.
You're a real jerk and a creep, but I wouldn't wish it on you or anyone, Well maybe my ex wife...naaah. No one. Not even you or her.
Not being able to stand or walk is a life changing challenge. I'm up for it. I follow docs orders religiously.
Why are you even gracing that little turd with an answer ?

You should look up the definition of CHANGE. You just said nothing changing but.... which means it changed.
And I am not that quick at calling people idiots, I have been here quite some time as have the others, I guess the fact that you just arrived to the party has confused you.
BTW, none of the items I mentioned that require changes in the law are "rights".
Frigging FNG's ...LOL Noobs rock....except in here ...

It should make no difference to you, I'm FINE! Enjoying my life maybe even a bit more than I did before. And I have always enjoyed it. It's another challenge. I'm good at challenges.
Don't want or need any sympathy. Fire away, I can't walk but I still have my wits about me. And a sense of humor.
As far as the war, glad I went, glad I came back after two tours. I went there a boy and came back a man with goals. I used the GI bill to earn a masters in geology, and spent 30 years as a research geologist.
And I got lots of HOT SEX with the little brown ladies "take two, they're small"! In between the hard times. And GOOD DRUGS and cheap alcohol! No taxes!
Amen. And, S.M.I.B.

Is it "gay sex" if lots of straight people do it, and most gay people don't? I believe it's called anal sex.
If you want the government to directly intervene and prevent all anal sex, then wouldn't that apply to straight folks as well? What kind of testing and regulation would you require the government to engage in to deny marriage license to any anal sex practitioners? Who would run it?
Who would pay for it?
And most importantly, who else but you would support it?
It is not a valid reason to grant a title of legitimacy. To a defunct, and clearly perilous, coupling.

Of course, that's patently absurd, since of COURSE gay men and lesbian women are disproportional disadvantages and burdened by such bans.
This reasoning counted only exist if there were no such thing as people who can only be attracted to the same gender.
Try proving that one.
That's why this type of reasoning has fallen out of favor legally.
Deal with it.
Did you mean "disproportionately disadvantaged and burdened by such" disqualifications to lay claim to a title of legitimacy ?

You mean like there was no discrimination in preventing interracial marriages, since all black and white people could already marry someone of the same race?
Did you read my post? The court explained the difference, and why Loving v Virgina as well as the race argument is not the same.

I am sorry that you have comprehension problems.
