I didn't bring the subject up, Eagle and I don't know why you're getting all pissy with me over it. It's none of your business.

Both Quirky and ftp were accusing Rico or spoofing Militia. I brought those posts forward to prove they were lying, and what's it to YOU?

And yes, I have a life other than Topix. Do you have an attitude other than an azzhole and control freak?

You don't like what I post, then ignore it and scroll on by. I don't interfere with what you post, so FO.

Sorry. You're wrong again - as you continue to be these days. When "Steve" (Taletha, Gloria, Monica, The Chandler Poster, Tempe, etc..) starts with the moralizing, it's time to call her/him/it on the boolsheet by reminding him/her/it that he/she ripped of Militia, and I don't care if it was four years ago. Who is he/she/it to criticize ANYBODY after pulling such a nasty scam on a disabled man, and especially take money from him that would affect his wife who was innocent of this crappola and working to support and contribute to her family?

Apples and oranges.

When it comes to marriage equality, we're not talking about federal law, we're talking about constitutional rights.

The law in Colorado legalizing marijuana for recreational use has not been found to be in conflict with any provision of the constitution and the federal government has decided not to challenge it.

Bans on marriage equality have been found to violate the equal protections clause of the constitution.

You don't have a constitutional right to smoke pot. At least no one has found one yet.

If Colorado had said that everyone could smoke pot except Native Americans, or Blacks or any other group you can think of, there would be a conflict with equal protections, but they didn't do that so there isn't.

The voters that count (House) stopped his ass in his tracks.. If you want his agenda to progress then you will honor the voters in their states against SSM.. You just can't have it both ways..
Eagle
DOMA has what?

Most of DOMA has been declared unconstitutional and the last remnant of that law is hanging by a thread just waiting for the right case to make it to court to take it down too.

As far as the rest of your post, are you seriously suggesting that the repubs are holding the government hostage hoping for some kind of surrender on marriage equality?

Good luck with that.

Militia never sent that poster any money to begin with.. I ask in private.. Hell he never knew her real name and was asking me for her info from mulitply.. So you can quit spreading that rumor..

I could go on, but when you have made it clear that you only respect the laws you like isn't it a little hypocritical to complain because you think Obama is doing the same thing?
I've done no such thing.

You seem to have confused Obama with SCOTUS. I don't know how you do that, but you do:
Supreme Court DOMA Decision Rules Federal Same-Sex Marriage Ban Unconstitutional
06/26/2013
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/26/supr...
WASHINGTON -- The Defense of Marriage Act, the law barring the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages legalized by the states, is unconstitutional, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday by a 5-4 vote.
"The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and to injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion. "By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than others, the federal statute is in violation of the Fifth Amendment."
Justice Kennedy delivered the court’s opinion, and was joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito all filed dissenting opinions. Justice Clarence Thomas joined Scalia's dissent in whole and parts of Alito's opinion.
As Kennedy read the majority opinion from the bench, cries were heard in the courtroom when the justice delivered the verdict that DOMA violates the Fifth Amendment. A number of same-sex couples sitting in the audience looked up at the ceiling, while others wiped away tears........
Shortly after DOMA was struck down, President Barack Obama released a statement celebrating the decision. "This was discrimination enshrined in law. It treated loving, committed gay and lesbian couples as a separate and lesser class of people. The Supreme Court has righted that wrong, and our country is better off for it," he said.
You are an inflamed boil on the negro ck of life........

Are you drinking or toking? Here's what you posted:

QUOTE: EAGLE

" You don't like the house disagreeing with obama and his policies but how would you like one judge telling a state their voters mean nothing regarding gay marriage?? Those voters spoke at the polls does their votes not count in your eyes?? Majority rules in your eyes right.. Or are you just going to be a hypocrite??"

Eagle

..........

I responded that your initial criticism of Obama telling states what to do had nothing to do with SCOTUS ruling as they did on DOMA and that you're confused - again.

Any judge can issue a bad ruling, and when that happens as for as a state is concerned, it is usually appealed to a higher court up through whatever Circuit Court of Appeals has jurisdiction and eventually winding it's way to The Supreme Court if a state decides to take it that far (they do from time to time). At any rate, that's the way our laws work.

What part of this have you decided to blame on Obama? I'm afraid I don't follow your "logic" if there is any there.

Utah politician on hunger strike against marriage equality.

----------

Utah Politician Is Fasting To Stop Same-Sex Marriages

Although a Utah court has ruled that same-sex marriages can proceed in the state, one politician there is taking it upon himself to try to stop them.

Trestin Meacham, who once ran for a state senate seat as a member of Utah’s extremist Constitution Party, is now drawing attention to himself by saying he will not eat until Utah’s legislature willingly disobeys the federal government by reinstating its ban on same-sex marriages.

http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2014/01/05/3120...

----------

Anyone else see the irony of a man running on the "Constitution Party" ticket going on a hunger strike until his state willfully defies the Constitution of the United States of America?

You are slow I get that and you missed the point.. NTR continues over 1000 times now the voters decided on obama and don't like the fact the house stops him doing what their voters decided.. But yet she expects them to yield while supporting judges going against the majority of voters in the states..
