What happens if the cap limit is not raised? and how can the American people simply ignore this waste?

Watch them decide to allow even more money for this, even as the country is suffering economic woes. They don't care about the spending of huge amounts of money that didn't come from their pockets.

There are more than enough decent patriotic American citizens willing to earmark their own private funds back to Congress for this effort, enabling the panel to continue its vital work protecting American families and their kids from the radical extremism of the homosexual agenda.

Radical extremism?

hahahahahahah
ahahahahahahah
ahahahahahha

Since when is equal protection under the law "radical extremism?" If you want to pay for the DOMA defense, go ahead. I don't want another dime of my tax dollars going down that blackhole of stupidity. SCOTUS is going to overturn it anyway.

Of course it is.
Democrats do it, Republicans do it.
An outright cash bribe is more out of the Democrat politicians' playbook.
NOMsters use more sophisticated methods to reward friends and punish others.
The legal ones.

Really? You're saying private citizens can send a check to congress with instructions on how to spend it? Do you just put it in the notes section of the check or do you attach a post-it-note? Fascinating!

Anyone "willing to earmark their own private funds back to Congress for this effort" certainly wouldn't qualify as a "decent patriotic American citizen." The rest of your moronic and homophobic comment doesn't deserve a response.

You do know this is a thread about MARRIAGE, right. Your obsessions with males having anal sex really isn't on topic.

And what does it have to do with MY marriage, or yours?

Are you really suggesting that the government apply an "anal sex test" for obtaining a marriage license?

I gather this would apply equally to every American, right?

How will you create the new laws and government offices needed to handle the tests and the resulting lawsuits from this intrusion into private lives?

But that's where the male G-spot is located. Right where your god put it, which she must have done for a reason. Afterall, she cannot make a mistake.

Ask your doctor, he'll go feeling around for it.

Yes marriage. My marriage. You wish to skip all the gross defects and details of ss physical contact. I'll provide it for you sweety. This has everything to do with brainwashing children. You bastards aren't fooling me.

Republicans will cut funds which help the elderly and disabled if it means more money for their dangerous Christian crusades.

A crusade which has resurfaced in force since the arrival of the Tea party.

It blows my mimd how a political party which wins elections by lying and doesn't care about non Christians nor the average working person is still winning elections.

Why is that right-wingers have such a problem with sarcasm... and empathy... and logic.

So you believe your god made a mistake? You must not be a very good christian right-wing zealot. I thought your god was infallible. What else did you god make that was a mistake?
