BS. Telling people they don't deserve basic, equal human rights is more insulting than any simple name calling, b!tch.

Bigfoot, I'm not doing either. I'm just saying that based on what you say, I figure you are lying about being a Wiccan. It's like your claiming to be a Muslim, then saying in every other post that Muhammad was just another dude.

For the last two decades the powerful "rich" have passed laws that reduced their tax burden. Because they (Republicans) are a bunch of lazy slobs, and or crooks.

Different epi-marks protect different sex-specific traits from being masculinized or feminized -- some affect the genitals, others sexual identity, and yet others affect sexual partner preference. However, when these epi-marks are transmitted across generations from fathers to daughters or mothers to sons, they may cause reversed effects, such as the feminization of some traits in sons, such as sexual preference, and similarly a partial masculinization of daughters.

The study solves the evolutionary riddle of homosexuality, finding that "sexually antagonistic" epi-marks, which normally protect parents from natural variation in sex hormone levels during fetal development, sometimes carryover across generations and cause homosexuality in opposite-sex offspring.

Judge overturns California's ban on same-sex marriage.

And now SCOTUS will hear the case. How can they come to any other conclusion than Prop8 is discriminatory?

I donít think they can, the supporters of the prop did not have a leg to stand on In court

I think the real question is, will they came back with the narrow division that will overturn it in California, or the broad decision that will have consequences nation wide

I give it 60/40 with a 60% Chance for the narrow result, and 40% for the broader one.

I would prefer the broader decision but will not be disappointed for the narrow.

I was a brown shoe.(From envy, often modified by non-aviation types with the adjective "f*cking").

Snipes used to get nose bleeds from the altitude the rare times they came up to the flight deck. All pasty white, they'd catch a sun burn in 10 minutes.

My son was a snipe.

Ahh, Our snipes got along with the Airedales,( in the Coast Guard they were Airedales ) as we had a lot in common, we had Major ship parties in the Hilo Hanger, usually one big party per trip, Hump day party, although the captain authorized a second party on one extended mission on Deep Freeze 76, homecoming party.

I am pretty sure it was not legal but a pallet of beer would show up at each party, rule was there was not to be a single beer left when the party was over, you drink your allotted 2 beers or in the trash it would go. No one ever would say a word when we got back to port about it though, we knew if anyone taled about it, it would stop.

I would never have stood on both poles if not for the Airedales, they always found a reason to have a few of us Snipes with them when they went.

Brown shoes are called airedales in the Navy too. Don't wear brown shoes anymore though.

I flew SAR missions off two different aircraft carriers (two tours) on Yankee Station from 1968 to 1971. I was a high tech type and I would salvage top secret electronics from our downed aircraft before the NVA or VC could. They sent me cause I knew what to destroy or take away and how to get it out fast.

Took a little side trip to North Korea when they shot down one of our planes. So got the medal, tee shirt and hat for the Korean War too.

Signed up for The Navy so I wouldn't be drafted into the meat grinder of the Army infantry etc. Worked out good for me. Used the GI Bill when I got out to get a MS in geology. Was a geologist for the USGS for 33 years. I owe it all to the Navy slapping my young dumbass into shape and squaring me the f*ck away!
