And that's called hitting the nail on the head my friend! LoL,Thanks for all you put up with and keeping the thread on track! AK is famous for babbling on about nothing that has to do with the topic,like many others on here like Dandy Randy the douche and Mike who is even worse and is usually off topic with every meaningless post he writes! Mike claims to be for equality but it's funny as the only one's he's ever supported are the bigots and the one's who are against equality! To bad as they've driven off most of the good souls who used to post here!
Aw shuddup Bill you big jackass! Go polish your bronze star.

Why you mad bro?

Too Funny!

AK is a game player. He'll eventually just start lying as some means of saving face and it will be about then I'll stop responding to his nonsense.
This posting is nothing other than an excercize in having fun. It might be an insight to some of those opposed to gay marriage but little else.
I have more than a few Tea Party friends that are close an dear to me and one thing I've noticed is they don't play games like Mike and AK do. They merely determine a stance in their mind either on religion or something else and will staunchly refuse to effectively argue the subject of same sex marriage based on an opinion and set of reasoning they lodged there like a grape seed jammed in between two teeth.
If our leaders listened to rationale rather than emotional response gays would have been able to be married nationwide back in 2004.
It will happen eventually anyway.
I get tired of dealing with Mike and AK and others myself and will be gone for awhile but this TOPIX is like a bad habit.
I'm beat...gotta sleep given I'll be at work in 6 hours.
Sorry for the wordy posts. And have a good week...myself I'm jazzed we're slapping eight million Christmas lights on the SUV again this year only to drive around and blind people while tempting cops to ticket us.
LOL!!!
Dan and Bill! Now that's a comedy team! Woo Hoo!

FUN!

I was "in country" before you were born. I understand English very well and some Vietnamese too. You're welcome for my service you ungrateful coward.

I suggest you don't attempt to insult other people's intelligence with your limited resources and sissy-ass background.

What a jerk!

Perhaps it's too deep for you to understand but that is a fact.
I'm working on a Dan impression. Let me know how this is, it's rough but it's a start:

Our government was formatted on a full set of liberties that causes no viable inherent harm amongst them. It is aspects dealing with the republic democratic institution by it's makeup they clamor for.

As far as freedoms which groups and some individuals clamor for they are reviewed on the basis of viable inherent harm and formatted on democratic priorities and a Democratic Republic dumbass.

Get lost punk. Geezus! LOL!!

Muskets, cannons, cavalries, brother killing brother over ideology, the decimation of the South, etc. was all related to the Civil War.
Are we discussing gay marriage or are we discussing the Civil War DUMBFUCK.
The inclusiuon of the 13th Amendment was used as an illustration to your dumb as a rock ass in explaining why the Amendments exist.
Now if you're so fucking lost in this topic of same sexed marriages that you want to discuss the fashions women wore in 1862 I suggest you find another thread moron.
Is it your opinion that- Lincoln, slavery, the southern states, and the 13th Amendment are NOT related to the Civil War?

Like I said Dan, you are like Rose, you try an post in cryptic noncommittal terms in an attempt to make it impossible for someone to call you out on your nonsense. The only problem- neither you or rose are smart enough to do so.

Really????
WOW. What an IDIOT your momma must have raised.
We are a Republic Dan, not a Democracy. You should learn the difference.

Poor Dan, has such a had time admitting he is wrong. Look, he is arguing with the founders now..
"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself."- John Adams
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!"
Benjamin Franklin
"We are a Republican Government, Real liberty is never found in despotism or in the extremes of democracy...it has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity."- Alexander Hamilton
"A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51% of the people may take away the rights of the other 49%." Thomas Jefferson
"Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death."- James Madison
"We may define a republic to be - a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior. It is essential to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion or a favored class of it: otherwise a handful of tyrannical nobles, exercising their oppressions by a delegation of their powers, might aspire to the rank of republicans and claim for their government the honorable title of republic."- James Madison
"Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos."- John Marshall
You were saying Dan??

Yes, if you look up Democratic Republic in Websters Dictionary you will not find it, i doesn't exits. The only reference in the Democratic Republic of Yemen.

If you look it up on Wiki- you will find some nonsense about it being a hybrid of a republic and a democracy but all sources cited, which are only 2 are from 1997 and 2011. It is a made up term, and has nothing to do with the founding. You will find NOTHING in the writings of the founders referring to the US as anything other than a REPUBLIC. Not a Democracy, and not a Democratic Republic.
