Right.
Yet another internet tough guy.
Been to Wooster, Ohio by the way. A shithole during the 9 months of winter that hits there where the skies are constantly gray, cold and forbidding and the first shovel of snow you pushed off your driveway in late October is still there during spring thaw. Humidity so thick that immigrants from Singapore want to go home and full of nothing but pasty, obese white people driving 23 year old Mopars while working at the factory dreaming of the moment they can leave their dead end jobs to get back to the doublewide covered in burned out Christmas lights from 6 seasons ago.
LOL!!!
But go on. Please tell me how you intend to 'backhand' me Brutus.
Sounds like Sacramento but with no snow, just bad air and oppressive heat and morons. Too funny! Meth labs and cow sh!t. Ah!

Another win today

The federal government as far as taxes are concerned are going to recognize same sex couples that were legally married, even if they are living in a state that does not recognize them as married.

That means we now have federal recognition in all 50 states

Is 'spece cake' now an insult??
How about 'salt shaker'. Might that be worse??
No American should have to ask nor demand rights already given to them by our Constitution and how our country was set up in which citizens are afforded a full set of liberties and freedoms providing those liberties do not produce harm.
Shaddup already....LOL!!!

Puh-lease.
DOMA is a failed concept. Had it not have been it would have been held in force.
Listen cupcake...you don't have to like gays. You don't have to agree in them marrying. Unfortunately for you you don't have the power nor right to impede on the basic liberties afforded other Americans unless those said liberties produce viable harm.
Now go and fetch dog. Go find some viable harm that gay marriage causes or please....STFU already.
LOL!!! GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD damn buddy. Give it a rest.
"...those said liberties produce viable harm." Where'd you read that you big dope? The Dopey Dan pretend Constitution? "viable harm". "afforded". Too funny!

Kinda like claiming the local government is made up of aliens from Saturn whose intent is to take over and steal all the mozerella cheese within a 185 mile radius....we just want to see proof of bullshit claims before taking them seriously.
No need. You and I both know you did. You're getting angry again right now Ace.

<quoted text>You caught that. I know a lot of gays are posers who pretend they are straight supporters.
I am waiting for one to explain why they do not support same sex adult blood marriages. Sounds like discrimination, hate and bigotry to me.
That's what it is. The "marriage equality stops right after I get it" attitude, otherwise known as hypocrisy.

<quoted text>So, you are in favor of same sex adult incest marriages.
You asked for a case where a sibling wanted to marry and was denied, but now you say no American should have to ask nor demand rights already given to them by our Constitution and how our country was set up in which citizens are afforded a full set of liberties and freedoms providing those liberties do not produce harm.
Then you get angry.
It's "...produce viable harm". Dan likes the word "viable" he heard someone intelligent use it.

You should have finished high school. It's still not too late. It would improve your credibility. You spout off dumb stuff like "afforded viable harm" trying to appear literate. It's cringe worthy.

Hey dumbfuck...
...there's a difference between believing that a male should marry a female and the allowance of a 45 year old father marrying his 12 year old daughter which would parallel the difference of a 34 year old male banker marrying his 30 year old male supermarket owner versus a 29 year old man marrying a 12 year old brother.
Hope that helps you sad little bastard.
Temper temper!

No one is advocating children marrying moron. If I used that argument against SSM, you'd scream bloody murder. Why is it OK to use it against two consenting adult brothers marrying, dummy?

Frankie I don't care if you think I am gay, I don't consider it an insult, I don't happen to be, but I honestly don't care.

We as a country now have federal recognition of same sex marriage in all 50 states, I don't think it has sunk in yet, not even with the gay community.

Today's news is huge.

Consider this, the couple that brought their case to the supreme court to have DOMA overturned, would not have that problem now if they had married in New York, but moved to Alabama, their federal taxes would be as married.

They just won some 80% of the battle today, do they even realize it yet?
