"THAT'S what I'M talkin' about" ! is a catchy little phrase and useful for those who can't come up with a way to express themselves. However it needs a reference, a focal point. I just hope they drove out, or had to buy extra seats on the airlines.

Texans are actually known for their acute judgment in leadership. How many times has Rick Perry been elected? Oh yeah: Every election since their prior governor won the Presidency in 2000.

Let's see. Texas has a money surplus. Texas has companies and jobs moving here. Texas ias no income tax. Oh yea, Texas is so provincial. Move to California where everyone is hip, slick, and cool and the known unfunded state debt is at least $154 billion, but probably much higher. California, where the people are so educated they vote for every 30-year, interest only balloon payment bond proposition, because their taxes won't go up.

Texas has a low wage workforce, lots of pollution, and crummy secondary education, with only a few passable higher ed institutions, and a reprobate populace overall.

It just got lucky in terms of carbon resources and fossil fuel industries.

Not only that, but if you move to a blue state like California, your federal taxes help pay for food stamps, earned income credit, AFDC, and other subsidies to all those low-wage workers in Texas. Why would anyone want to live in a thriving economy like California's when you can toil away for low wages in Texas and suck at the federal teat besides?

I don't care where you are in 10-years. Homosexuals already lead the league in suicides, alcoholism, drug addiction, and a few other unhealthy categories, so I imagine in 10-years with the added stresses of make believe marriages, they will be less of you.

Pretty amazing that such a small percentage of the population leads in so many categories. And before you comment about how "two obese women" look may I suggest you look in the mirror.

The whole point of advancing glbt right is so that young people don't have to experience that damaging defamation and discrimination.

With luck, we'll have the fundies and racists getting all this societal disapproval...and be able to genuinely see the fundies' outcomes worsen and their mortality rates increase.

I was with you until your last phrase.

I thought Christians treated others as they themselves would wish to be treated.

It seems completely in keeping with this rule to similarly go ahead and defame and disfranchise the quite purposefully evil fundie homophobes.

By the way a tiny bit of thought about human history clearly shows that is not what happens.

And by their own tenets I am just advocating giving the fundies what they themselves have asked for.

Wishing or calling for another's death is never an enlightened activity, and is decidedly primitive.

As usual you failed even for a moment to consider how your little fortune cookie quote has had nothing to do with history. That's for starters.

As for "mortality rates," being disfranchised and defamed comes with very real social consequences. It's a bit different from directly wishing or calling from another cohort's demise...particularly when that cohort says it treats others as it would wish to be treated.

Although for the record I will be pleased when people like Brian Brown and Pat Robertson and Bryan Fischer, etc., start keeling over. But you're so very noble that you felt sad when gutter trash Helms and Thurmond died.
