Insisting prop 8 doesn't effect polygamy is not logical.

One more law against polygamy has zero effect on polygamy? Try again.

"Marriage is a man and a woman" doesn't have anything to do with polygamy? Does it say "men and women" or does it say "A man and A woman"? Try again.

Clint Eastwood is a great actor, writer and director. Palin is silly.

You canít get to that office without being on a political bandwagon, sad but true.... I wish it was otherwise.

I enjoy Clint's films, very impressed with Million dollar baby, and Gran Torino.

How could it affect polygamy if polygamy was already illegal? Oh, I see..... the ol' double illegal... got it.

From the California Supreme Court's May 15 ruling:


We emphasize that our conclusion that the constitutional right to marry properly must be interpreted to apply to gay individuals and gay couples does not mean that this constitutional right similarly must be understood to extend to polygamous or incestuous relationships.

Well what do you know..... The California Supreme Court said what?????

You've been paying too much attention to that flaming idiot Bill O'Reilly.

Tell that to the California Supreme Court.

Of course, it is SO obvious that they don't know what they're talking about and should ask YOU for legal advice..... yeah, right.

ROFL!!

Actually quite a number of the republican leadership is jumping onto the issue opposed to Prop 8.

A few are starting to realize that party HAS to change if they ever want to win an election to high office ever again.

You cant divide yourself into a majority.

There isnít much talk any more about cleansing out RINOís, and more talk about how they can include more people. That is why the Tea Party is losing influence fast.

He is going to be one sad puppy in June when 8 gets overturned and nothing is mentioned about Polygamy.

But there will likely be a lot of sad puppies, the way things are going, I am starting to think it is going to be a broad ruling, and the end of DOMA

I am a life long conservative democrat. A registered Democrat since 1969. I support marriage for every adult who wants a family and you do not.

Marriage is good for society, even marriages bigots don't approve of.

And besides, seeing a happy family makes me happy, Be they OSM, SSM or poly marriage.

No I donít know it.

I hear you say it, and I watch you attack every supporter of Same Sex marriage. I have watched you go from polygamy to incest the same stupid and childish tactics that the far religious right uses against Same Sex marriage.

I am not about to take you at your word

Insisting "marriage is a man and a woman" doesn't restrict poly as much as it does same sex is stupid and illogical.

What don't you understand about "a man and a woman"? If they didn't have poly also in mind they would have said "men and women".

Duh!

You're the liar here not I. I wouldn't take your word on anything.

You suspect I am lying about supporting SSM. Because you are paranoid and think it is some sort of trick against SSM. You are wrong.

Your only argument against mine is your paranoia. That's on you. Deal with it. Or get a cogent argument against polygamy and incest marriage. The "you're lying" is SO OLD and STUPID, an not an argument at all.
