Oh, I get it, Tony. And I get that your pleased.
Pleased that my country is one step closer to the ideal by which it was created? Why, yes I am.

As you will recall, first the homos only wanted to be left alone to live their lives in peace.

Not exactly. They said "Live their lives as they see fit."
Americans complied.
Somewhat, and with the judicial help of overturning sodomy laws... But it was hardly voluntary.
Then, the homes invited Uncle Sam into their bedrooms and demanded that he hold their same-sex relationships to be the equivalent of marriage. Americans were forced to agree.
Not agree, tolerate. Nobody needs your agreement.
All the while, the homos insisted that their campaign would now end, and that they would never seek to force same-sex marriage upon children in the schools -- "No, no...everyone knows that sex education is optional." Americans have discovered otherwise.
Your school board members... your legislators...
The next discovery will involve the fact that no U.S. citizen will be able to be denied any form of marriage based on "equality under the law."
You're right, and your acknowledgement of the inevitable is a welcome sign.
And again, that's something the homos said would never happen. Americans know better.

Homosexuals aren't responsible for someone else's use of the same principles to gain their rights. The principles have been there since this country's founding... It's just taken this long to realize their breadth.

But you have the gall to call those opposed to same-sex and other relationships "bullies" and "control freaks."
BS.
They are not trying to require you to marry a same-sex partner if you want to marry. You ARE trying to require them to marry an opposite-sex partner if they want to marry. The former is not force, the latter is.

The administration does not have the power to decide what legislation it will defend based on whatever views of the Constitution it deems popular.

They may not like the political or popular fallout by selectively enforcing laws, but they can, and do, do it.

There had been no decision by SCOTUS -- nor was SCOTUS' eventual decision a given in this matter. Therefore, Obama breached his constitutional duty to defend a legitimately passed Act of Congress.
There's no mechanism in place to force a president to enforce a law he doesn't want to enforce. The recent obamacare decision is an example. They can express displeasure, they can try to impeach, but they cannot force him.

To repeat, you are wrong.
Up until the Supreme Court's decision, Obama had no case law upon which to base his non-defense of DOMA; nor did Obama know with a certainty the forthcoming decision of the Court.
But it was ENFORCED until it was struck down. Now hundreds of thousands of married couples will refile their federal tax returns for the past three years, and several people whose legal spouses died with substantial estates since DOMA was enacted are going to get refunds of federal inheritance taxes.

The selective prosecution of all federal anti-discrimination laws has always been the master plan of victim cult mavens.

US DOJ has never supported a reverse discrimination prosecution or lawsuit.

They accomplish this feat because the majority of voters are victim cult people, and the lawyering profession is dominated by victim cult people.

Somehow Tip seemed to overlook this post.
I believe it has to do with the lack of integrity of the sources she seeks out. That and the fact that she apparently believes that digesting blogs like Brietbart transform her into a Constitutional Law scholar. Imagine that.

Not by a longshot, ace.

"...I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs, say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman."

-- Barack Obama, self-proclaimed champion of civil rights, 2004

During the first two years of Obama's presidential term, his administration defended DOMA, an Act of Congress passed by majorities of 342 House members and 85 Senators, and signed into law 9/26/96 by President Bill Clinton.

Suddenly in 2011, pandering to the demands of pro-Obama LGBTQIABCDEF activists, and based solely on constitutional theory crafted by Holder's DOJ, Obama's position on marriage inexplicably "evolves" and he declares that his administration will no longer defend DOMA.

As president, Obama is tasked with defending the law. His decision to abandon his duty came prior to the question being settled by the only actual authority.

Obama's arbitrary action does not convey trust in our nation's laws and in a president's duty to uphold them. It conveys inconsistency and the ability of an administration to cherry-pick which legislation it will follow and which it will ignore.

Karma's a bitch.
Can't wait until it bites back.
