Politics Unusual: Is DOMA Done?

Oct 25, 2012 Full story: EDGE 31

For the past several weeks, political chatter has centered on the debates. From Obama's sleepy performance in the first debate, to "Uncle Joe" Biden's scoffing and calling out of GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan, to the president calling Mitt Romney "offensive" for his comments on the assassination of the US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

"However, the real news to the gay community from the debates is not really news at all... they forgot about us. Not a single mention; not a word on the Employment Non Discrimination Act (President Obama supports the law, while Mitt Romney has said he doesn’t see the need for it.), no comments on their stances on gay marriage, and nothing on the fight to repeal DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act), a fight that was bolstered last week by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York, which ruled that the law is unconstitutional."

Of course The Obamaniac and Romney are not going to mention issues important to us !. Everyone knows that people who identify as LGBT vote Democratic 90+% of the time, and neither one is going to change that.

The people who are going to decide this POTUS election are the "swing voters" in OHIO [emphasis added].

Whomever wins the most votes in OHIO, wins the POTUS election. PERIOD.

btw, someone the other day on another thread, I don't remember whish one, kept areguing that all electors MUST vote for the candidate who wins a majority of teh vote in their state. I asserted taht this was NOT TRUE, and that some states allow their electors to vote for ANYBODY THEY CHOOSE.

This is why in nearly every recent POTUS election, there has been at least one "faithless elector".

I have know researched which states allow their electors to vote for ANYONE, and which states do not allow that.

The reult is here:

"There is no federal law that requires electors to vote as they have pledged, but 29 states and the District of Columbia have legal control over how their electors vote in the Electoral College. This means their electors are bound by state law and/or by state or party pledge to cast their vote for the candidate that wins the statewide popular vote. At the same time, this also means that there are 21 states in the union that have no requirements of, or legal control over, their electors. Therefore, despite the outcome of a state’s popular vote, the state’s electors are ultimately free to vote in whatever manner they please, including an abstention, with no legal repercussions. The states with legal control over their electors are the following 29 and D.C.:

Alabama (Code of Ala.§17-19-2)
Alaska (Alaska Stat.§15.30.090)
California (Election Code §6906)
Colorado (CRS §1-4-304)
Connecticut (Conn. Gen. Stat.§9-176)
Delaware (15 Del C §4303)
District of Columbia (§1-1312(g))
Florida (Fla. Stat.§103.021(1))
Hawaii (HRS §14-28)
Maine (21-A MRS §805)
Maryland (Md Ann Code art 33,§8-505)
Massachusetts (MGL, ch. 53,§8)
Michigan (MCL §168.47)
Mississippi (Miss Code Ann §23-15-785)
Montana (MCA §13-25-104)
Nebraska (§32-714)
Nevada (NRS §298.050)
New Mexico (NM Stat Ann §1-15-9)
North Carolina (NC Gen Stat §163-212)
Ohio (ORC Ann §3505.40)
Oklahoma (26 Okl St §10-102)
Oregon (ORS §248.355)
South Carolina (SC Code Ann §7-19-80)
Tennessee (Tenn Code Ann §2-15-104(c))
Utah (Utah Code Ann §20A-13-304)
Vermont (17 VSA §2732)
Virginia (§24.2-203)
Washington (RCW §29.71.020)
Wisconsin (Wis Stat §7.75)
Wyoming (Wyo Stat §22-19-108)"

Bain operatives already fixed the voting machines in OHIO. If I were to bet right now, Romney wins Ohio. We don't have free elections and we are on the verge of becoming a police state.

FEMA coffins are the right wing nutter's idea of the End Times. The fact is those are just another stupid boondoggle. What good are they? They cannot be lifted by individuals because they are too heavy and have no handles. They cannot be lifted by forklifts because the forks will split them open. What's wrong with good old body bags? You are an idiot.

If their intent had ever been to "defend marriage", they would have started by making divorce illegal.

You can't "defend marriage" against people who can't even get married in the first place.

Good point. How can marriage be defended by denying people the right to marry?

No. A parent is not allowed to have heterosexual sex with their children, and the law also prohibits sex between many other closely related family members.

I was referring to adults fool! Isn't it amazing however that over a month ago under your avatar FaFoxy you and I had a heated exchange one evening and you were RATIONALIZING about NY laws and how it was 'ok' to have sex with first cousins and that you, like David Traversa also had NO PROBLEM lowering the age of consent for sex? I believe I just caught you in the most hypocritical remark FaFoxy in all my days on topix and you know what that means don't ya? You are an absolute waste of my time.
Seriously FaFoxy, you are. From this day forward, stay the hell away from my posts cus I am no longer interested in yours. You are a liar, a fraud, and a hypocrite. I may change names sometimes, but my assertions and beliefs never do.

Oh gee moron then why do I see just about every poofter on here take a swipe at her each day including you. You're all a bunch a liars anyways. Your whole physical and degenerative relationship is just that too. I caught her in a blatant and outright lie. Another blogger earlier in the day called me a liar when I asserted that many gays wish to see the age of consent lowered and low and behold FaFoxy reminded me of another blogger and his exact assertion about lowering the age.
Thanks Fafoxy.
Chuckle.
I took a swipe at you too.

Nice rant though.

The famous line from another GREAT Clint Eastwood film is better: "Business is business. Maybe the guy's a Republican."
