Thanks for the link.
If she DID have her head screwed on right, LOL, she'd not have enlisted.....
But, if one can't back the plan, back the (wo)man...
But, she does have a good head on those tiny shoulders. 5 ft tall 115 lbs, outdoing about 80% of her fellows.

I have no regrets about my service. It made me a man, gave me a sense of pride, provided real adventure and offered me the GI bill which I used to get an M.S. in geology which resulted in a great career and comfortable retirement.

My grandfather, father, all my uncles and my son all saw combat in various US wars.

But you say polygamy shouldn't be allowed because of religion. Please elaborate. Why do you base your decisions on who deserves marriage equality on religion?

I find it difficult to see the logic of defending monogamous marriage as the historic norm when the laws of many states have already departed from the principle that it is heterosexual, monogamous marriage that is essential to social stability.

Where is the logic in defending monogamous marriage when several states have already abandoned the notion that monogamous heterosexual marriage is essential to social stability?

Fair dodge, but still a dodge. I guess you won't or can't explain why you use religion against marriage equality.

Real love and real truth go hand in hand. They are always united. You keep trying to claim love by denying the truth. You end up with neither.
Reality does not belong to you. It is not yours to create. It simply is.
You confuse your changing ignorance with reality changing.
The reality is, the sky is different because of different conditions. The reality is, you like males because you are homosexual.
A person's knowledge, honesty and wisdom determine how accurately they perceive truth and reality.
The reality of the sky didn't change when you went to Arizona, your understanding did.
You demand that the reality of marriage change. I simply point out that a SCOTUS ruling didn't grow a vagina on one gay partner, nor did it make them capable of mutual procreation, nor did it equate them to the diverse union of genders.
You react to my stating those things, when it is reality that you should be angry at. It is reality rejecting your demands.
<quoted text>
I'm sorry, I refuse to redefine truth, facts and reality. If that is being obtuse, so be it.
However, I would suggest you have taken one of the most idiotic politically correct coined phrases and repeated it without logical discretion.
A person's perceptions determining how well they have addressed their blind spots.
If your view were truth, there would be no half-truths.
But even you don't really believe what you say. That is why you angrily debate me on here.
How hysterical...

So, if I "angrily debate you" because I don't believe what I'm saying, then you must not believe what you say because you angrily debate me.

See how stupid that sounds?

Bottom line, your truth is not universal to everyone. My truth is not universal to everyone either.

Either you get it or you don't.

But I did finish the 6th grade. And the 7,8,9,10,11,12th and college and graduate school. How about yourself?

But that has been your argument against polygamy. You say it shouldn't be allowed because people in some religions practice it.

It's not that your posts are too racy or impolite, it's just that they are too psychotic. You scare the mods.
