You point blank lie.
You gave me three reviews/summaries. You gave me NO methodology.
There is a reason why the specifics are not provided. You remember Paul Harvey's 'The REST of the Story'?
I guess the articles you post all give methodology, right?

If ya don't like what was provide.....then do your own research.....the bottom line is that married people have healthier lives:-)

I didn't ask for 'articles', I asked for studies. The Regenrus study provides it. Only one lesbian study that I just posted does so I have done my research.

The bottom line is gay unions are not the same as marriage. They don't/won't have the same results.

I just figured an open and honest man like the great obama would have nothing to hide? But I agree, we should be more concerned about his fast and furious dealings and why eric holder still has a job, his relations with vallerie jarrett, bill ayers, why he lied about Libya, why he along with carter and soros ushered in the muslim brotherhood. Why he has failed in economics. why he paid 70k for a pakistani ad saying we sorry for free speech. why he is the most divisive president in history. While our country is at a all time high national debt his wife goes on lavish shopping and vacations.

You probably are afraid to check it out, but here is a website that shows Obama's success story...Obama's top 50 Accomplishments

His biggest mistakes were trying to work with Republican obstructionists, who would rather work for themselves than for America.

One could argue that the right to own a gun is merely a substitution of equivalent words for the right to keep and bear arms. After all, The only way to keep the weapon is to own it. Otherwise, the gun shop is going to demand it back...
;)
Under the original intent of the Constitution the 2nd Amendment was only a restriction on the Federal Government. The States were free to restrict or even ban weapons if they so chose.

I am a bit behind is reading all of these posts, so this may have already been said, but you just proved Rose's point...
"those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights."
Of course, the correct language now would be "...condition of their parents...", since mothers have the same rights as the fathers.
Too bad the court has never said that. But nice try.

Liar. The actual phrase comes from Thomas Jefferson, writing to reassure a Baptist church that the government was not going to interfere in their rituals and superstitions.n His exact phrase was "...a wall of separation between church and state...", so it looks like SCOTUS was merely enacting the will of the men who drafted that document rather belatedly.
For that matter, 1961 was most certainly NOT the first time that such separation was required by SCOTUS.
Liar? So there is "Separation of Church and State" in the Constitution?

Show me:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Yup, still not there..

And the letter, which people like you consistently take out of context, was Jefferson telling the Danbury Baptists that there wasn't a damn thing he could do about their grievances, as the Federal Government was PREVENTED from doing so under the 1st Amendment. There was no Constitutional separation of church and state, Congress simply wasn't allowed to pass a law establishing a national religion, the States were free to do whatever they pleased. And they did, until 1961, when the SCOTUS decided it knew better than the very men who drafted the document.

Do any of you actually study history anymore, or is everything you know from a text book?

Hey Fool, how does the Koolaid taste? The stimulus was not a success, the iraq war ended the same time bush laid out for it to end. The healthcare law is now a tax. The banks are doing the same thing they were doing when barney frank, the famous gay screwed up the housing market. We are still sending troops to Afghanistan they still bleed under obama. GM will need another bailout soon, all that did was create jobs where most gm products are made in Mex and Canada. GM is not the most american made car. It was a huge mistake to get rid of Gaddafi. Now look at Libya and Egypt. Now what do we have? The Muslim Brotherhood? Another mistake. "Improved America’s Image Abroad" LOL.....are u kidding...lol....Accomplishmen ts?!?! I had to stop at the end of the first page, I was laughing so hard. It's unfortunate the author didn't actually dig into any of these "accomplishments". Topping the list is the 30% hike (according to the CBO) in our medical care thanks to federal bureaucrats now in between us and our doctors, at the point of a gun, and run by the IRS to the tune of $2.4 trillion dollars (projected by the CBO).

The Regenrus study DOESN'T prove anything except that he did compare what he said he was going to......and he ONLY had 255 participates that even indicated that a parent WAS involved in a Same-Sex relationship......hardly enough to make true comparisons!!!

They won't have NATURAL children between them.....THAT'S THE ONLY DIFFERENCE......and not ALL heterosexual couples have NATURAL children between them either!!!

I have no trouble bringing things into the 20th Century. What I do have a problem with is people like you who wish to circumvent the process by which the founders established for doing so- Article V of the US Constitution.

There is only ONE way to change the meaning of the Constitution from its original intent, and that's it. But we know that's too hard, so why not just let the courts change it with a ruling instead?

No Rose, nothing was taken out of context.
Ahh, the ignorance of Rose on full display.

I don't give a damn about facts, I believe what I want, and because I believe it despite factual evidence to the contrary, it must be true and I will continue to believe it."

Newsflash..

Obama was quite privileged as well.

Stop acting like he is some blue collar worker who feels the pain of the middle class.

I bet Obama hasn't even had dirt under his fingernails.
