California is unique in that rights were already granted and then taken away.
True, and I have said that many times. But again, if that was the issue than the SCOTUS had no reason to revisit it as the ruling would stand and prop 8 would be tossed.

I am very interested to see what kind of BS the court comes up with on this issue. I won't even pretend to know what they are going to do after the ruling on ObamaCare, where they actually wrote law to make it "Constitutional". I guess if the POTUS can legislate, why not the SCOTUS? Perhaps our 3 branch system is as out-dated as the Constitution? LOL

This type of illegal activity the USPS was convicted of in Court would be the samething Glendora, California is and has done to Senior citizens and other resdients.

In addition to ordering the USPS to reimburse the soldier for nearly 13 years in back postal wages, the board also told USPS to immediately begin paying Erickson his postal salary ó even if the USPS opts to appeal, a move that could extend the case another two years. Erickson said he doesnít recall his hourly wage rate in 2000.

Cumon Bill, can I get a 'SHUT YOUR PIE HOLE'?
I saw Bill's posts on another thread.

No "shut your piehole!" or thorazine drip stories, but he was accusing other posters of being gay.

Well being called Gay isnít an insult, I would just politely tell him he is incorrect and point the way to a gay bar somewhere where he might troll for companionship more easily

Bill says he's not gay. But he says he supports gay rights. The way he does it is to accuse everyone who doesn't of being gay. That's stupid.
Bill's a real funny guy. He doesn't think things through.
I donít happen to be Gay, I fully support Gay rights, but I donít "accuse" people of being gay as I donít see that as any kind of insult. It is like accusing someone of having blue eyes.

A story biline might look like this:

GPD officer on patrol saw Douglas & Gene run a red light while driving eastbound at Route 66 at Compromise Line Road.

Officers attempted to pull the driver and passanger over, but they refused. The driver drove at freeway speeds then slowed down to a crawl. The driver played cat and mouse with the following officrs in their cars.

The driver circled streets surrounding Glendora High School, favoring to Lone Hill Avenue, Route 66 and Palopinto Avenue.

GPD officers immediately identified the subjects, knowing there might be issues with mental problems.

The pursuit was terminated, because GPD had identified them, an knew where they lived and had past contact with them.

The whole chase lasted less than 10 minutes.

That's what I'm saying. It's stupid to use gay as an insult. Especially by someone who claims to support gay rights.

I agree there, and I question the idea that they are for equality when they consider it an insult to be one.

Some guys I talked to down at the Livermore VFW who were on the ship with Bill said he was the Captain's favorite and he gave Bill extra privileges. The Captain said that was because he was always swabbing the poop deck and polishing the brass knobs and balls and such real good.
Then Bill came in and told them to "Shut your pieholes!"

You know Bill? I don't. Tell us about him. All I know is the dumb bigoted nonsense he posts here. Like accusing people of being gay as if that's a bad thing.

Tell us about the Bill you know! Is he really not a homophobe? Is he just faking it in his posts?

Don't you understand you cant vote on unconstitutional issues. That is the whole point. Look into the issue.
That is the problem, and it is a very California problem.

I can create a petition to deny blue eyed people the vote, get enough signitures on it, and put it on the ballot, and have it passed by the majority of brown eyed people.

It would of course be challenged as unconstitutional, and rightly so.

The problem is that you can put unconstitutional measures on the California ballot, like Prop 8, that is what we need to fix.
