Original Birthplace of Abraham Lincoln
According to the Lincoln Center-Bostic website, "There is substantial evidence that Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, was born not in Kentucky, but on Puzzle Creek near Bostic, North Carolina, in Rutherford County. Abraham Lincoln's mother, Nancy Hanks was 'bound out' into the care of the Abraham Enlow family, who lived in Rutherford County before moving to Oconaluftee near Cherokee, North Carolina.

Beech Mountain, North Carolina: Land of Oz

The park was very nicely decorated and the characters were all fun; loved watching the children enjoy themselves, I talked to a pretty "witch" in the line with me and her little girl, who was dressed as Dorothy -- they were first-time attenders and they seemed to be having a great time.

America, The Beautiful Lyrics
by Katharine Lee Bates - 1913

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
Whose stern impassion'd stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine!

O Beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

There is an estimate welfare/food stamp and disable (a large percentage not even disable--fraud claims), etc. 90 million people in America.
This is almost 1/3 of the Americans, count another 1/3 as children and teens which equals to 1/3 of our citizens who are working to pay for the 2/3 who are not.
My niece just loss her welfare because her youngest is 18 y/o, she went and applied for disability, nothing wrong and her. Her diagnosis is "Fatigue Syndrome." She is active, always on the go, even travels with boy friend, swims, hikes, etc. She didn't even need a lawyer, they approved her disability saying one of her blood levels was a little elevated.
So, she has gone from 20 years on welfare with her oldest being 20 y/o to collecting disability and always having a man in the house...she goes thru boyfriends real fast.
This is the scam from what she was saying, when the welfare is almost over with due to kids are now grown, women will go and apply for disability---no problem.
Disability isn't all that easy to get. It can take up to three years and even then be turned down. One has to have a doctor that says that you are unable to work because of some health issue. Doctors aren't so inclined to do that. I know we have abuse in our social systems net but that doesn't mean that the majority are some of those people. If you feel your neice is milking the system that's fraud and you should report her. That would at least get rid of one. Just because no one else can get a job she and her family should be starving on the street with the rest of them...right?

Maybe you should spend less time figuring out "who I am" and more time on cultivating an decent argument for your ridiculous views.

"denying to the point of ignorance"?

really, Jax, you are using the actions of a deadbeat bill payer to bolster your case?
really?
must be why millions on govt bennies DON'T get married when they have a legal right to do so.
one would also assume from your example of A COST SAVINGS FOR NOT BEING MARRIED, that IF you were there at the time of ADMISSION, you would NOT agree to accept financial responsiblity/co-resp FOR YOUR LOVED ONE?
some commitment, huh?
still waiting for your example, as previously discussed....
higgans, having a discussion with you is impossible.

I simply gave a real world example of one of the many legal obligations that would be placed on same-sex couples if our marriages were recognized at the federal level.

The point being that we are not out for financial gain (as you and others have suggested). We are simply asking for equality and we are more than willing to accept the responsibilities that come with that.

I can't make it any simpler than that for you so if you still don't get it have someone else explain it to you.

As far as the previous discussion, both DP and I have tried to explain to you that you just don't seem to understand how estate taxes (among others) work.

If you haven't noticed, Don't Panic and I haven't exactly agreed on much in this discussion, but the one thing we do agree on is that you just don't get it.

Without full legal recognition, even with both names on the deed (in the example of real estate) and the right of survivorship secured, if one person in a same-sex marriage dies the other is still liable for taxes on what the government considers the deceased partners estate.

I gave you a link that explains this. You have either ignored it or you just don't understand, but either way, you're wrong.

Once again, if you simply can't comprehend what you've been told have someone you trust explain it to you because you are a waste of my time.

Immigration bill would import 1 million workers per year
12:46 AM 04/05/2013

The Senate’s draft immigration bill will increase the inflow of foreign workers to 1 million people per year, according to government data and news reports.

The 1 million inflow would provide almost one foreign worker for every four Americans who turn 18.

The rate would be high enough to fill up all the extra non-farm jobs created during the last six months.

The 1 million inflow would include at least 350,000 people capable of competing for middle-class skilled jobs sought by the 1.8 million Americans who graduate from university each year. Only about 10 percent of the workers would be farm workers.

“I believe in a free-market, but this [inflow] will aggravate the problems for [American] graduates,” Richard Vedder, director of the libertarian Center for College Affordability and Productivity, told The Daily Caller.

The increased inflow numbers suggest “we’re substituting foreign workers for domestic workers, and maybe that makes a certain about of sense” for cost-conscious businesses, he said.

America the Third-World Nation in Just 4 Easy Steps
Saturday, 10 November 2012 11:53 By Thom Hartmann and Sam Sacks, The Daily Take | Op-Ed

New reports that Taiwanese transnational manufacturing corporation Foxconn may be opening up some plants in the United States indicate that our nation has now entered the terminal fourth stage of "third-worldization" or what may be better referred to simply as "recolonization."

In case you don't know, Foxconn is China's largest private employer and is responsible for making many of those parts that go into your Apple iPhones, iPads, and iPods.

While Steve Jobs may have been a visionary when it came to technological design, he wasn't a fan of labor unions - or American workers in general - so he outsourced most of his corporation's manufacturing to Foxconn, which was notorious for its low-wage labor.

Foxconn workers live in over-crowded dorms that are located on the factory grounds. They work 12-hour shifts, and are routinely exposed to dangerous working conditions. Recently, 137 Foxconn workers fell ill after they were forced to use toxic chemicals to clean iPads. And in the last five years, 17 Foxconn workers have committed suicide on the job. Nets have since been installed around the factory to catch workers jumping out of windows.

So why the heck would Foxconn look beyond their Libertarian paradise of no labor laws to come to the United States and employ a bunch of Americans?

To know the answer to that question, we have to understand the four steps the United States is currently racing through to become a third-world nation.
