I don't give you enough credit to assume you understand sarcasm...

since we have actually fodder for the next few days on the actual constitutional issue. I am going to try to ignore you for a few days.

I bet I do better at it than you ever did...

Don't worry, I'll be back to you to point out your angry ignorant bullying...
but for the next few days, your rants are not interesting enough.

Poll: 53% of Americans support same-sex marriage

As the Supreme Court begins to hear oral arguments in cases involving two high-profile laws to do with same-sex marriage - California's Proposition 8 and the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act -53 percent of Americans think it should be legal for same-sex couples to marry, while 39 percent say it should not be legal.

Although public opinion on this topic has been consistent for the last few months, it has reversed markedly from as recently as a year ago. In May 2012, just after President Barack Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage, 51 percent of Americans said it should not be legal for same-sex couples to marry.

The poll suggests the extent to which people's views have changed. Thirty-three percent of Americans who now think same-sex couples should be allowed to legally marry say they once held the opposite view.

Among Republicans, a generational divide on gay marriage

There is a sharp generational divide among Republicans on the issue. Overall, 56 percent of Republicans oppose legal gay marriage.

But I asked the CBS polling team for a breakdown by age, and the result was that among Republicans under 50, a plurality of 49 percent supports legalizing gay marriage, versus only 46 percent who oppose it.

What’s more, the poll also shows that support for gay marriage is even higher among the voter groups that Democrats are increasingly relying on.

For instance, among voters under 30 overall, a stunning 73 percent back marriage equality. And among college educated whites — a key pillar of the Democratic coalition of the future — 68 percent support gay marriage.

The anti-equality crowd is on the wrong side of history here.

And most of them know it.

As bad as bigotry against homosexuals is, at least CASD doesn't have separate proms for white and black kids...

New Video: Wilcox County Students Fight Segregated Prom

Stephanie and Keela are white and Mareshia and Quanesha are black. They're seniors at Wilcox County High School, a school that has never held an integrated prom during its existence.

"There's a white prom and there's an integrated prom," said Keela.

The rule is strictly enforced, any race other than Caucasian wouldn't dare to attend the white prom.

"They would probably have the police come out there and escort them off the premises," said Keela.

That was the case just last year as a biracial student was turned away by police. It's been that way for as long as anyone can remember and it doesn't stop at prom. Homecoming is also segregated. Normally, there would be a court for each race, but for the first time the school decided to elect only one homecoming court, Quanesha won. But there were still two separate dances.

Sweet Baby Jesus! is a chocolate and peanut butter flavored beer made by DuClaw Brewing Company in Maryland. It's quite good, although I personally prefer the chocolate peanut butter beer Big Gruesome by Spring House Brewing in Lancaster.

I was in Good Ta Go earlier in the week, and a guy at the next table was telling me about a chocolate/peanut butter beer he had sampled there earlier. He didn't tell me the name, but he said he really liked it. I'd love to try it, but I'm not sure about sweet beers. I didn't like Roy Pitz's pumpkin beer very much.

Anti-Gay Activist Lisa Biron Found Guilty of Child Pornography After Video Taping Daughter

http://www.opposingviews.com/i/society/anti-g...

Lisa Biron, a New Hampshire lawyer who worked with an anti-gay Christian-right organization, has been found guilty of child pornography after she videotaped her own daughter having sex with two men on several occasions.

According to Salon, Biron, 43, is facing a minimum sentence of 25 years after she was convicted by a jury on Thursday. It took the jury less than an hour to deliberate.

In November, Biron was arrested by the FBI and accused of eight felony counts after she videotaped a 14-year-old girl having sex with men. Later, the girl was identified as Biron's daughter.

Biron also videotaped herself having sex with her daughter.

Macklemore is the big new thing for those of you who are too old to be with "it," since they changed what "it" was, and now what you're "with" isn't "it" and what's "it" seems weird and scary to you...

THIRTY TWO MILLION views and counting on YouTube, these lyrics are the voice of your generation. And if you, Factor viewer, don't think your kids are watching this - and agreeing with it - then you're as far behind as the rest of them.

32,000,000 YouTube views... Macklemore & Ryan Lewis featuring Mary Lambert:

[Verse 1: Macklemore]
When I was in the 3rd grade
I thought that I was gay
Cause I could draw, my uncle was
And I kept my room straight
I told my mom, tears rushing down my face
She's like, Ben you've loved girls since before pre-K
Tripping yeah
I guess she had a point, didn't she
A bunch of stereotypes all in my head
I remember doing the math like
Yeah, I'm good at little league
A pre-conceived idea of what it all meant
For those that like the same sex had the characteristics
The right-wing conservatives think it's a decision
And you can be cured with some treatment and religion
Man-made, rewiring of a pre-disposition
Playing God
Ahh nah, here we go
America the brave
Still fears what we don't know
And God loves all his children it's somehow forgotten
But we paraphrase a book written
3,500 years ago
I don't know

[Hook: Mary Lambert]
And I can't change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can't change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love, my love, my love
She keeps me warm [x4]

[Verse 2: Macklemore]
If I was gay
I would think hip-hop hates me
Have you read the YouTube comments lately
"Man that's gay"
Gets dropped on the daily
We've become so numb to what we're saying
Our culture founded from oppression
Yet we don't have acceptance for 'em
Call each other faggots
Behind the keys of a message board
A word rooted in hate
Yet our genre still ignores it
Gay is synonymous with the lesser
It's the same hate that's caused wars from religion
Gender to skin color
Complexion of your pigment
The same fight that led people to walk-outs and sit-ins
Human rights for everybody
There is no difference
Live on! And be yourself!
When I was in church
They taught me something else
If you preach hate at the service
Those words aren't anointed
And that Holy Water
That you soak in
Is then poisoned
When everyone else
Is more comfortable
Remaining voiceless
Rather than fighting for humans
That have had their rights stolen
I might not be the same
But that's not important
No freedom til we're equal
Damn right I support it

[Trombone]
I don't know

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Macklemore]
We press play
Don't press pause
Progress, march on!
With a veil over our eyes
We turn our back on the cause
'Till the day
That my uncles can be united by law
Kids are walkin' around the hallway
Plagued by pain in their heart
A world so hateful
Some would rather die
Than be who they are
And a certificate on paper
Isn't gonna solve it all
But it's a damn good place to start
No law's gonna change us
We have to change us
Whatever god you believe in
We come from the same one
Strip away the fear
Underneath it's all the same love
About time that we raised up

[Hook]
