Next the supreme court will say it is unlawfull for parents to stop their young kids from dating a pedifile. Maybe family members will be legal to marry also, maybe it will be legal to marry farm animals?

God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. That being said we all sin and should allow for repentance and change and love those who defy the laws of nature.

If we build it, can we keep liberals out permenantly, or will you invade again when you see how good we have it, and steal our riches?

As long as you promise to stay in and don't round up people to turn into slaves.

Don't think that'd be needed...plenty of folks want to come here from south of the border to work, instead of mooch off society.

Of course. Just how the GOP loves it. To exploit workers with below minimum wage. All in the name of profit.

It should be whatever the market will bear...if people won't work for a low wage, the wages would increase. However, I didn't say anything about min wage, soooo maybe you're just a little intolerant? I'd be interested to find out if there are any rich, liberal people that pay less than min wage...if only there was an example or ten (there's sarcasm in that remark in case you can't tell)

I meant what I said. There probably is ten examples. Look at the GOP. They hate unions, minimum wage, and OSHA. They have voted to do away with the definition of a work week of 40 hours. This way, companies can get out of paying overtime. I don't see liberals pushing for these. It is the GOP. They want to get rid of all protections for workers. Don't say they don't. We know how much they love regulations.

Kray, your comment is completely stupid and idiotic. Parents are allowed to keep their child from dating a pedophile (which you obviously are unable to spell) if they want; in fact, parents can keep their kids from dating anyone until their child reaches consenting age. As for incestuous marriage, marriage is only recognized between two people who are unrelated to each other, as marriage is the sharing of wealth and assets, and it would be useless to do that in a family, since all the wealth and assets are pretty much already shared. And as for marrying a farm animal, well, that's just impossible, because farm animals are unable to consent to marriage or sign a marriage license. You might not like gay marriage, but that doesn't make bans on gay marriage constitutional.
