Awww ... well that's just awful for them. Here they are, trying to defend the Constitutionally indefensible Defense of Marriage Act, and they're running short of cash. Hold it ... I think I feel a tear gathering in the corner of my eye. Naw, it was just a bit of grit.

The thing is, a lot of these same sex marriage foes are the same ones who are screaming and carrying on about government waste and runaway spending. Do you think it bothered them that the House Republicans just appropriated $3,000,000 to defend DOMA in court? If it did, they were certainly very quiet about it.

People with enough money to donate are realizing it's a criminal waste (in a bankrupt world) aiding senseless causes when there are so many more worthy and in need of attention ones..

This is a BS story leaked to the press to lower our expectations and make us complacent.

There are six (count 'em 6) important races coming up, and 3 important ballot measures, including a possible State Constitutional Amendment against us in Indiana. They want us to take a financial nap.

Keep those cards and letters (and donations) coming, boiz 'n gyrlz!

Seriously!

No. Gay marriage foes suffer from a FUNDAMENTALLY sound, rational argument to support their position.

Their basic argument is that gay marriage is UN-traditional.

TRADITION is often the WORST reason to continue a practice.

For hundreds of years in the U.S., it was TRADITIONAL to keep black AMERICANS in chains, both literally and figuratively.

For hundreds of years in the U.S., it was TRADITIONAL to keep women from voting.

For hundreds of years in the U.S., it was TRADITIONAL to force at gunpoint Native AMERICANS from THEIR OWN LAND.

For hundreds of years in the U.S., it was TRADITIONAL to allow the IRISH into the U.S.(WHAT ON EARTH WERE TEHY THINKING ???!!!)

The list goes on and on......

The reason your side is LOSING this battle is because you couldn't be more wrong. A "twinkie" is a food item, not a boy. You won't win this through slander.

That is actually very highly possible. The easiest way to lose equality is by becoming complacent.

Nobody seems to have noticed that the Cooper team billed 4.5 million dollars, while the Boies team billed only 1.5 million. Even with equal fund raising, that alone explains the shortfall.

The fact is that the equality opponents are eating more at the trough, and they would like a bigger trough. But a bigger trough will not help a losing case.

Ever notice how many false names and false country "homelands" one little serial liar uses?

Pick ONE name, register and stop lying you coward. Too afraid to own your internal hate? Figures, coward.

Gee, I once heard of a guy who used multiple names like Barry, Barack, Barry Soetoro, Barry Hussein, Barack Obama, and others and at times variously claimed he was from Chicago, Hawaii, Indonesia, and Kenya. Why can't this guy just pick ONE name and stop being a lying coward ?!

Thanks, Cal. Or is it Calvin? Or Callahan? Calhoun? Perhaps you're lying to us all! Or maybe a COWARD!! Gasps!!!

Are you kidding? "Barry" is an obvious shortening of "Barack", just as "Cal" is certainly short for something. This is pretty weak as conspiracy theories go. And does use of a middle name (like Hussein) REALLY count as "multiple" names? I have a middle name, too. And Soetoro is nothing but his stepfather's last name, Obama didn't use it.

Do you need the locations explained, too? He was Senator in Chicago, born in Hawaii, his stepfather was from Indonesia and his father was from Kenya. It isn't all that confusing, unless you WANT it to be, just so it sounds "sinister" or something.
