Awwww..that's so clever, "reich winger", did you think of that all by yourself, or did the rest of the rainbow clubhouse help you out?
As the "....being granted their civil rights...", that ignores the fact that gays all ready have the same civil right as any other American, they simply don't like the way its exercised. A solution here would be to recognize different situations, different solutions.

Im sorry the symbolism of the rainbow is lost on you??

I only stated that i have permission from the state to smoke that much...
that would BE alot to smoke....
so at least now we can establish that riccardo fire of northern california finally admits canabis is "MEDICAL"
what a huge sea change in your politics...
i can see just how liberal you are compared to all the other posters here...
like for instance, wed both be pissed if the jehovahs witnesses bothered us at home.
On the pot topic, you admitted to smoking that much, when did I ever say there was no medical use for pot? Pot should be legal for everyone. Hemp oil is healthier then smoking a bong. What does the JW's have to do with this? Your mind is everywhere, put away the bong for a minute.

Nope, untrue. My WIFE and I are a very happily-MARRIED lesbian FAMILY. We will celebrate our fifth WEDDING ANNIVERSARY the end of June.
Deal with it, and grow UP. Mommy wants her pots and pans back, now.
At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

How does a duplicated half, mutually desolate of mating behavior equate to marriage, or a child missing at least one parent and always one gender make a natural family?

Father's day has to be a bitch (pun intended)!

You are only fooling yourselves at the expense of children.

Sad.

there is nothing like winning when you didnt expect to...
that said, it feels good to win, when YOU KNOW you are right, and it is simply a matter of the court backing US up and telling the bigots to finally....SIT DOWN.!!!!!
I had that same feeling last fall, when Obama trounced thurston howell the third, and his car elevator!!
all the racist bigots were ready for a big racist hurrah!!
unfortunately for them?? they were watching faux news, and were badly mislead into thinking they would win.!!
when they were trounced firmly....
many of them act as theough the election never happed, and amercia DIDNT shoot their agenda down.
The funny part is you bought those lies...lol....He's promised to overhaul immigration law, to set a course in law against global warming, stop Iran from gaining the ability to make nuclear weapons, slash America's use of foreign oil, restrain college costs, and take a big bite out of the national debt even while protecting the heart of the big entitlement programs.

He's promised to make health insurance not only universally accessible, but "affordable," through a 2010 health care law that is finally entering prime time and will soon be tested.

Obama made a pact with voters, not historians, and he's got IOUs outstanding.

His lies on ObamaCare that you celebrated that have been broken:

1) If you like your current insurance you can keep it.
) If you like your doctor you can keep him or her.

3) The ten-year cost of Obama Care will be less than $1 trillion.

4) Obama Care will not add one dime to the deficit.

All four of these promises have been broken according to the administrationís own experts

He lied and itís going to be more expensive with less coverage? Who saw that coming? If you voted for this idiot I hope you get what you deserve!!!!!

Tomorrow is the big day in court. It's the beginning of the end of the gay marriage bans not just in California but Pennsylvania, Texas, Mississippi, Oregon, and all of the states that deny LGBT couples equal rights under the law. Time is up bigots. June 2013. Remember that date.

your hysteria is just silly now.

"to set a course agianst global warming"??

hint: that would be easier if you guys stopped denying that it exists in the first place...

and with the stock market now well over 14000??

the wealthy have little to whine about....

other than the fact that their MAN isnt in the whitehouse

meanwhile your party just keeps digging their own grave, by being against things like gay marraige, legal immigration, access to womens health care and voting equality....

you can just kepp digging as far as im concerned.

Just another reason ss couples are not marriage.

for now... if DOMA falls, any challenge to the states that ban them will be easily overturned on constitutional grounds
You are on the wrong side of right and wrong, and certainly on the wrong side of history
You are so confused.

DOMA has already failed in court, and the basis for that decision was the the RIGHT to REGULATE and DEFINE marriage rested with the STATE!!! The SCOTUS upholding that decision would AFFIRM that the STATES have the power to REGULATE and DEFINE marriage. It would do NOTHING to help your argument.

You really should stop pretending that you understand the legal system.

It is a matter of degree, the far left of the democratic party is a small minority and has no real voice in the party.
Not so with the far right for the Republican party, who are currently vetting every nominee. Rush speaks to them every day, they will only watch Faux news.
3rd party is likely to happen in the next 20 years, the republicans will spin off the Tea Party
But like other 3rd parties I donít expect it will survive.
If you buy this nonsense you really need to get your head checked.

If the "far right" had the clout you claim Romney would have never made it to NH in the Primary.

How sad is it that there are generally 6-8 people who have no life, and spend their lonely days trolling the thread to post judge-it's not based on the content of the post, but based on the name attached to the post?

How much sadder would it be if there was only 1 person?

Seriously, look at the judge-its. With near 100% accuracy you will see page after page, 6-8 judge-it's.

So sad.
