Funny how when he was a Senator in Illinois he told the Windy City Times his viewpoints on Marriage Equality and that was back in like 1996.

He then changed that stance when it became clear he was running for President because he knew that was an unfavorable approach.......now his views are evolving back towards Marriage Equality........which his what he truly believed in the first place.

Oh and if you truly aren't Daniel P of Long Island......your lives are extremely coincidental......even down to the transgendered fiance!!!

There was a *long* quiet spell during the blizzard when we didn't hear from you online
.
I worried the cats weren't getting fed because you were wandering around in the woods; lost in the snow; looking for beer
.
when you finally showed up you were in West Sand Lake 60 miles east
.
so.......
.
it was just alzheimers
As I said, it must be cablevision that has caused the West Sand Lake thing. I have no other explanation. I've never been there. And presnetly I have no car because I sold it 10 days ago and have yet to get a replacement (it was one of the best cars I ever had). And I NEVER get lost, because I NEVER leave my house without at least 2 gps recievers, a celfone, AND a PLB.(I'm into gps.:)) If you want my gps coordinates so you can see my hous eon Google, I'll give them to you. also if you wanan chat or cam on yahoo with me, you can do that too. The cats have plenty of food and are snoozin. I recently adopted a BIG cat. The BIGGEST I have ever had. He makes quite a contrast with the kitten. My cats names are Calley (male), Samantha (female), Jaime (male), and Grayson (male). They were all strays I rescued, the last two in the past 3 months. And I continue to feed 3 other stray cats outside each nite, plus the other assorted wildlife here in the city which is surprisingly diverse.

I was on the Human Sexuality forum yesterday and there was this 16yo kid talking about having his 1st gay sexual experience and there was Daniel giving out his email address trying to get this kid to contact him.

It was f'n disgusting.

He is presnetly appealing a judge's decsion striking down DADT as unconstitutional and ending it IMMEDIATELY. He is also busy appealing a decision striking down DOMA as unconstitutional. Don't you pay attention to the news ?!

i think we need to be more concerned with the DOMA at this point. DADT is the past it's just gonna take some time for all the paper pushers to get their ducks in a row

and we fight on

"This court is soundly convinced that the government's proffered rationales ... are without 'footing in the realities of the subject addressed by [DOMA].' And 'when the proffered rationales for a law are clearly and manifestly implausible, a reviewing court may infer that animus is the only explicable basis.[Because] animus alone cannot constitute a legitimate government interest,' this court finds that DOMA lacks a rational basis to support it."
