First, I find this new law troubling because it goes against nature & fosters aberrant behavior. But, it was troubling to learn that a government office normally closed on Sundays opened up to give special treatment to the 2 lawyers who brought national resources to Delaware to push this law through our state. And then, the 24-hour waiting period was waived to allow the civil service to take place ahead of anyone else's. First we have to deal with a bad law & then we get to see how the priviledged few can get special treatment. I guess this is what it is like to be part of that 1% I keep hearing about?

No, not the 1%, the progressive liberal crap that defines their way or the highway mentality. Try and have something like that waived for the general public, or yourself, good luck. They are special people.

PC19808, after reviewing your ramblings, it was very hard to figure what your points are. Did my posting say anything about divorce being okay? No. And what does a political party have anything to do with abnormal behaviors or messed up laws? Nothing. My points were that this new law is wrong & bending the access to public services & the law as was done for the people mentioned in the article was wrong.

Your point is dead on about bending access to public services, and correct. Why bend the law for a few, are they a "special" class now?

As far as being socially acceptable or anything like that, I personally don't care who someone shares their life with or how, if they are happy leave them be it's their life. They do not however deserve, nor should they get receive special treatment or accommodations by the state.

Trueblue & Exit, right, I could care less about who is with who or why, I do have a problem with the civil union not being an option for straight couples who do not want a religious marriage. I understand they can be married by a JP but a civil union carries more weight and why not have it for everyone? Also, giving special access to any one group over the other is just wrong. No two ways about it. TrueBlue, I doubt it has anything to do with the 1% you are hearing about, but more likely the idea of letting PC thinking run amok and the misbegotten notion that these two women should be rewarded for what they brought about.

I commend you for the first half of your post. You have the courage of your convictions and are not a hypocrite. However, what special treatment or accommodations are you referring to?

PC19808, your ramblings are full of assumptions, misspellings, missing words, flight of ideas, etc. Most of your comments are long-winded, hard to follow, & make little sense. I think you write just so you can read your own postings. Therefore, responding to your rants is a waste of time.

I love a wedding;don't you? So much promise ,hope , and love when young people share their devotion to each other. Way to go, Delaware! And all the best to this wonderful couple and their children. I've never understood the argument that we must deny equal protection and recognition to committed same-sex couples in order to protect the sanctity of heterosexual marriage. With travesties like the Kardashian Caper, straight people are making a mockery of marriage all by themselves. Gay couples are the strongest lovers of the good old fashioned family values, raising up the children in solid ,two parent households, and gentle moral upbringing. It reminds me of my favorite movie, Dalton Trumbo's wonderful "Our Vines Have Tender Grapes" It was just shown on TCM tonight.

Yo Ray, Suffering a little burnout or is it just a major hangover? You are 100% correct that I am an honest person but you forgot to mention intelligent and good looking. OK, so I exaggerated, what do you expect from a radical right wing etc, etc and so on? I doubt if any ex poster on the Delaware online site has been called more names or threatened as many times as I have been. I wonder why the editorial kiddies at the Journal are warning us about "tracking" on social sites when they force those who use their site to use Facebook? BTW, digital Goddess Kim Kommando has several programs listed on her site that help with that situation, I am using a free one now that seems to be doing a fine job.
One other thing, where is the "love" that liberal progressives are known for? You seem like Mister Meanie today. Try to be more like me...
Hi Chief,
Please stop calling me Ray, it does make you look foolish.
I am surpised and disappointed. From what I have seen you post on here, you were always honest and direct. Why have you evaded my question? DO you and PNGreen have some sort of treaty????? You totally went off the subject and didn't answer my question. Why?
This is what I posted. Do you think this behavior is acceptable??
Do you agree or disagree it is true? PLEASE answer directly.

Chief, Please,
I know you have better sense than that. I think I know to whom you are referring and that is just plain wrong and absurd. But please comment on:
PNGreen and ALL of these fake screen names:
BobbyJo,Blufton,SC, Golden Horseshoe, PNGreen, PinkandGreen, Get Serious, StayRight(Banned), Centaurus,and latest Balleybunion,
This was on here and on Delaware Online.
She also did the following on Delaware online:

Like I explained before, I read some message correspondence between her and 'greensstinks(war beagle) on the old delawareonline forums about 'making up numerous identity -profile names to harass posters on different issues. She denies it only because she had forgotten that one time delawareonline had allowed open-messages (they were posted as part of your profile

I would never do anything this sneaky and deceitful. NEVER. Chief, I think you are an honest man, although politically we are worlds apart. I will await your comment on what your opinion of what PNGreen has done, and if you regard such behavior acceptable? Here is the proof.

@Chiefbuck, "Tea Party is a "flash in the pan", just a blip on the radar." The Tea Party ,based on tax revolt and decentralized government, blew all chance of making a difference in the 2012 elections when they went toe-to-toe with President Obama on the payroll tax cut for ordinary Americans and lost. The huge Tea Party blunder helped President Obama come out the winner as a tax-cutting, fiscal conservative progressive liberal ! Who would've thunk it! The Tea Party is 'toast'!

A SOCKPUPPET is an online identity used for purposes of deception. The term—a reference to the manipulation of a simple hand puppet made from a sock—originally referred to a false identity assumed by a member of an internet community who spoke to, or about himself while pretending to be another person.[1] The term now includes other uses of misleading online identities, such as those created to praise, defend or support a third party or organization.[2] A significant difference between the use of a pseudonym[3] and the creation of a sockpuppet is that the sockpuppet poses as an independent third-party unaffiliated with the puppeteer.

The term "sockpuppet" was used as early as July 9, 1993[4] but did not become common in USENET groups until 1996. The first Oxford English Dictionary example of the term, defined as "a person whose actions are controlled by another; a minion," is taken from U.S. News and World Report, March 27, 2000.[5]

From PC19808: "I have heard some rather distrubing behavior happened by he and his wife after the death of their baby. I would never question someone's right to grief, but think that perhaps he has some sort of mental issues."
So full of contradictions & talking out of both sides of one's mouth! A young family facing the imminent death of a child are now labeled as having some sort of mental issues because of the way they needed to deal with their child's death. I hope you have never had to nor never will ever have to face the possible or actual loss of one of your children.

TrueBlue, Alan Coombs had to appologize for his remarks about this. You are right, a family morned the death of their child, they did NOT PLAY with it, they PRAYED with him, morned the loss of their CHILD, held him and gave him an identity. Only a heartless person, one who thinks a childs life is not of great importance and the death of a very young child is just ho hum, would ever mock the way a family deals with the death of a child. I find it very touching that they recognized that this little one existed, if only for a short time, gave him the love they had, gave him the respect and recognition of his life, however how short. And gave their family the chance to say goodbye. Heartless may not fit remarks of this kind.

The Sockpuppet wrote AGAIN,

"True or not? So WHO is the sock puppet? Take a look in the mirror.
Also shouldn't you lay off the booze when posting on here? You make an ass of yourself. Come back for some more anytime, you masochist."

Reported, over and over again, lies, slander, spam, vulgar name calling and this animal continues to get on and post lies over and over again. STALKERS never give up, not ever. It is a sickness, a mental illness and only professional help will end the stalking. I and my friends will continue to report the harrassment, the vulgar attacks, the slander and lies put forth by this stalker. Cyber bullies are the lowest of harassers. If one is a masochist one SEEKS THE ABUSE, I do not, have done all I can to avoid it to get rid of the abuser and to report each and every violation. YOU are a STALKER and a BULLY. Find some other victim. You are NOT hurting me at all, you are making yourself look stupid and ignorant and abuive, someone the no one wants to associate with, other than your sockpuppet alter. So stop or keep it up, your choice and I will continue to report the abuse and vulgar attacks each and every time. Oh and BTW - IT AIN'T ME GIVING YOU THE BAD ICONS! I have better things to do with my time, I have to report 99% of your posts and have no interest or time to play games with icons. Just like on DOL you and your ilk have made them meaningless.

@Ballybunion," If one is a masochist one SEEKS THE ABUSE, I do not, have done all I can to avoid it to get rid of the abuser and to report each and every violation. " You haven't 'done everything to avoid it". You continue to reply to the poster ,using your own brand of spurious insults, name-calling, and use of multiple-names. I e-mailed you in reply to your request for help in this matter . Do you recall what I suggested? I said, call a truce, apologize for helping escalate the situation, agree to drop it, and go on to discussion of other issues and try to restrain your behavior to be more civil and polite to other posters views no matter how much you dislike them . Peace, baby, we're all Americans.

@Chiefbuck, Why don't you stop with the insults and name calling? Your abuse only weakens your 'conservative' argument . I doubt that you even have a coherent ,'conservative' philosophy since you'd rather display an ill temper, profane ,vulgar speech, and irrelevant gossip.
