are you seriously attempting to say that there was not domestic violence before? we're now just bringing it out in the open to confront it and prosecute it.
your claims about womens' abilities are pure bullshit. making shit up and calling it fact seems to be all you have.
perhaps if physical, manual labor is all you've ever done for work men may have an advantage instrenght only...

The demise of the hetero nuclear family costs us several times more and what is worse, the relationships between men and women is worse now because of extreme feminism. Those are the facts. Gloom and doom scenarios are made up names that we all buy into. Children are morons compared to decades ago and even worse then before that. What they are, is street wise.
Wow.... things must be really bad in your trailer park. "Massive taxes?" Really? in Florida?

Florida in reality is a mid level tax state. But we are charged in many ways in America. I am certain that if you ever looked up the real tax, fees, fines and everything else hidden structure you would know the truth. Don't live in one, but not against it.

when the 14th amendment is changed to remove the word "all" then you might be right. until then, POOKIE dear, we 'all' are guaranteed the same rights under the law and protections of the constitution.

Queer, I'll answer that for you since you couldn't. IT DOESN'T.
you haven't read any of the judge's rulings with regards to any of the cases have you? like the cases regardign DOMA, Prop 8 and the one out of NY where the surviving woman who lost her partner after being together for 40 yrs the IRS extracted a $300k+ payment from her in inheretance taxes.....you might try reading a bit on the rulings and findings and writings on the cases that have been lost from your side so far. every judge that's heard those cases, including appellate judges, found for the parties bringing the suits. now they're all going to SCOTUS....and most likely, SCOTUS will agree with the judge's findings in the prior trials.

but then, their words are probably beyond your ability to understand. that's ok though. it really doesn't matter what your feelings are about the laws or homosexuality. because, they aren't about you. that may hurt your ego. but, bluntly, that's what it is. your feelings don't matter with regards to public secular laws and how other people lead their lives.

good luck. you'll be needing it. i suspect you're going to get pretty angry over the coming months as the decisions are published. you may want to check with your doctor about some blood pressure meds. they might help you later.

<quoted text> You are the one making that assertion. Its a progressive thing. Evidently the government has to keep making laws about domestic abuse because people are just lovey dovey under the progressive utopia. Like that is going to stop it. The fact is, many women are now more violent also. Most women have drone like careers like most men now. There are not statues built for proletariat work. I can't speak for you, but in most of the jobs I have worked, in all around aspects of the work required, women were not as good. Got paid the same at least. Was required to do things they could not. Not to say that some parts of work required they were excellent. Felt like a 2nd class citizen and sucker. You really should study a lot of employment duties and the realities that exist. I also do not believe women should be 2nd class citizens in ways of living. Equality is not a straight line. We all have roles according to abilities. And we made requirements for employment a much wider and watered down standard to play the game of hiring as percentage of groups over the best qualified. The result, a nation in decline in real terms and a police state of tyranny our future.
are you really this clueless or are you just trying to pull our legs with this nonsensical claptrap you post? seriously? women aren't as good as men?

you've obviously not been raised by women that have asserted themselves or have been living under their men's thumbs.

a free society is best when all members are free to persue their skills and interests. that's what makes the economy churn. that's what brings forward the best in humanity. when everyone is treated equally - just like our constitution assures us when it guarantees "all" the same liberties, safeguards and treatment under the laws and constitution.

i'm sure condoleeza rice would have a serious bone to pick with you. or perhaps Irene Rosenfeld, Indra Nooyi, Patricia Woertz, Ellen Kullman, Angela Braly, Andrea Jung, Ginni Rometty, Ursula Burns, Meg Whitman, Sherilyn McCoy. try googling any of those names to see who they are and what they've accomplished as examples. or better yet, look around you without those shades on your eyes and see the woman down the street working 2 jobs and is a single mom raising her kids. or the woman that's worked her way through college and is working her first job trying to prove to her bosses how effective she is. or take a look at that middle aged female engineer at your local plant making the decisions about products and making things work....there's hundreds of examples in your own town, bud. just open your eyes to see how equal they are and that they deserve to be treated equally and fairly, if for no other reason than our constution guarantees 'all' citizens of the USA the same thingss.

You are saying that. I am saying there are roles for us all. We each are better at some things then others as individuals and genders. But we group everyone the same. Costs a lot of money to do this. Look, it is not going to change no mater what you interpret that I write or what I believe. So leave it at that.

You also did not have over 350 million people living in the U.S. then.

You also did not have 50 states back then either.

Auto and semi automatic weapons were not made then either.

Background checks are for the public safety moron - you want a felon with a long rap sheet in possesion of a firearm?

STFU you moron!

Guess what stupid - that's not in the 2nd amendment either you fool - but it makes perfect sense.

She's clearly just a teabagger idiot (redundant, I know) that's obviously surrounded by more idiots that make grand statements like, "ANY regulation of firearms is a CLEAR violation of the 2nd amendment!! SO THERE!!! HA!!!" Then, they all congratulate each other on being such awesome patriots that they know all that stuff.

But, truly, it says right in the amendment, "A WELL-REGULATED militia..." How the hell do you *regulate* something without regulating it???

Yep. That's how stupid the people are that we're forced to share the country with. Stupid, stupid, and again, stupid.

TSA allows knives on planes, flight attendants union calls decision 'dangerous'

The Transportation Security Administration announced Tuesday that U.S. airline passengers will soon be allowed to carry small knives in their carry-on bags, a move that prompted swift condemnation from a flight attendants union.

Will TSA insist on background checks on those bringing knives aboard planes……

..Remember box cutters killed over three thousand Americans not 26.
