I don't care who queers sleep with, so long as "gay marriage" is never recognized.

Is support "oversold"? ROFL

"Mein Fuhrer, there's no more point in calling me a 'defeatist' for telling you like it is. The Red Army is rolling into Berlin, and you have only one good bullet left, with your tonsils' name on it. I hate to break this to you, but the press controlled by Dr Goebbels has been lying about our victories all this time."

Prepare to be surprised. Gay marriage has been legal in Massachusetts for NINE YEARS, and it's coming to your State very soon.
How are those Federal benefits working out for you? That marriage is not recognized in most other states.

it won't be. it will be another marriage certificate just like any other. it will not say gay marriage on it, it will not be pink. it will be just as legal as any other marriage certificate.

Is gay marriage paying down our debt, reducing the cost of gas,making the US more friendly to business and the fossil fuel industry, lowering energy prices, creating jobs, paying bills, making our tax code user friendly? NO, IT IS A DISTRACTION THAT YOU BOUGHT INTO!

If it lists two men or two women it won't be legal outside the state that caved in and legalized it. It will never be legal on the Fed level. Therefore, no benefits for surviving queer.

Actually if SCOTUS tosses Section 3 of DOMA in June......yes, a legal marriage from one of the states that allow Gays and Lesbians to legally marry will have federal recognition in all 50 states, will receive the same rights, benefits and privileges of any other legal marriage, which would include Federal taxes, VA benefits, Social Security Benefits and even survivor benefits!!!

States aren't caving in......but they do understand that a right can not be denied simply because you don't like who the person is or who they love!!!

No, it's a distraction because REPUBLICANS can't do their jobs and therefore want idiots like yourself to be forced to think about something that is irrelevant instead of holding them responsible for not doing their job!!!

the poeple that told you to parrot those words were just distracting you..

We have DEMOCRAT SENATE AND WH, the House Republicans have been passing bills but Reid HAS NOT taken them to the floor to vote. Now you tell me who hasn't been doing their job?

See, then in reality you are unhappy with politicians in general!!!

Sorry, but you do know that Reid is the Majority Leader in the Senate, right?

Are you aware that the House Speaker John Boehner is using taxpayers money WITHOUT the approval of the full house, I might add to fund an UNCONSTITUTIONAL defense against DOMA? Where's your anger over that?

we're not losing jobs at historic rates...in fact, we were back to the same number of jobs after four years after historic job losses...that is better.

our financial and banking systems aren't on the brink of collapse any more.

we don't stop gay people from serving openly in the military, we are working to be a more moral nation in treating gay people equally.

yeah, thngs are better.
