Life is decent. I have a pretty big project I'm working on so I don't get much time free these days except to surf the net. Health is sub-par, but meh.

Reality alert. Several states voted in the last election to give legal recognition to same-sex marriage.
Reality alert. Courts matter, too. Several state courts have thrown out laws against legal recognition of same-sex marriage.
Reality alert. The U.S. Supreme Court matters a great deal. Ask any interracial couple who wanted their marriages recognized in all 50 states in 1967.

An opinion backed by no evidence. And therefore, worthless.
Hmmm... 2 percent of the population or so, a general contradiction of biology, let alone the improvised mechanics of gratification and you don't think deviant applies?

Oh, well. The proof is in peoples willingness to try it. Go ahead and get some testimonials from the citizens of Maine and Maryland.

Oh, yes! That "several" was actually TWO states, right? Just about the two smallest in the country? I've already observed, the demographics tell the real story. I'm a bit surprised that Maryland voted for it. It's a large minority state and they don't tend to like anyone co-opting Affirmative Action for their lifestyle choices....and yes, everyone knows it's about Affirmative Action and special hate-crime legal protection.

I've already observed that demographics matter. Do you suppose that the whole country is going to fall like dominoes now that Colorado and Washington have legalized marijuana? Funny how that same rhetoric is just "an opinion backed by no evidence" when it's not part of your AGENDA. Opinion? Common Sense? People don't vote based on scientific evidence. Your vigilante judges do more to keep Republicans in charge than anything else in government.

You're boring me with your pep rally. Parse it some more! DOMINATE!! You MUST be the DOMINANT monkey or you won't be a WINNER!! Drive on!!

I want a replacement for the Democratic party. I'm counting on people like you to make the Dems downfall written in stone. You WILL USE it! You WILL obey your MASTER!

Yes I do. Most of people just brush such things off as imagination or coincidence....I think in reality they don't want to acknowledge that such things are real.

I don't know, but after it's all gone and there's nothing left, some scientists say you have the potential of a Universe.

That's still the Democrooks.

In order for a break from the status quo, we need to keep every candidate running for office on a leash with a deadman trigger. The neo-democrats might want it to be compulsory to never endorse a candidate who does not observe a party term limit for cumulative elected positions. Career politicians are the problem.

If the career criminals jump ship, the neo-dems should even consider being spoilers and get the Republican elected. It has to be understood. There are no aristocrats in the new order.

I'd do the same with the Republican party but they're too far gone. They had their day with Lincoln. Not a pretty moral to that story either if you were Abe, eh?

Same sex sexual behavior is not a contradiction of biology. That you would write such a thing speaks to how little you understand biology.

- almost all primate species have been observed engaging in same sex sexual behavior
- it's prevalent among most mammals
- all human cultures include it

How could you possibly call that "a general contradiction of biology"???

Rather, it is something we can explain via evolution - like all other biological phenomena.
