The Mormons think it's okay for a man to have 34 wives....wonder if they ever heard of "thou shalt not commit adultery?"
It's not adultery if they're married! And I agree, governments should have nothing to say about who marries who, or how many of which one.

If you've been reading this thread you've probably realized it is between idiots mostly. Don't waste your time trying to explain simple facts Jenji.

Then how would fair arrangements be made when there is a divorce, as far as alimony, child custody, division of property, etc., be made if the government is not involved ?

"Punk" seems a stretch, since his music was never that hard.

But the fact remains your addition was really disconnected. I think you just didn't understand my remark about Johnnie Walker. Best case there is that you weren't paying attention. Worse case is that you're a complete dullard. Certainly your taste in music is pretty average.

Just for your recollection, you had the suspicion, not I.

I like that this witless troll is "agreeing" with something no one else here said.

Wonder if she's an actual mormon whatever they are?

Admirable. I hope you subject your own thought processes to the same scrutiny.

Just to be clear, my original "suspicion" regarding Hawking's diagnosis was more tongue-in-cheek than skeptical. I, for one, would hope we can get past this subject.

There was nothing at the time and there is nothing now indicating any irony on your part.

You could just say, "Oh, must have slipped my mind that I came up with the suspicion which I then projected onto you."

Again, the avoidance of a simple acknowledgment.

You posted it. I reminded you. Those are the facts.

You have a right wing alike penchant for denial. Sad.

Your sexist terminology is noted, as is your inability to deal with the simple fact of what he posted...and then attributed to me.

Something is wrong with your mind, the way you think.
