Don't you know Cliff Clavin's buffalo theory?
“Well you see, Norm, it’s like this ... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the heard is hunted, it is the lowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.
In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.”
Never do a thing almost, lad! Either you drink or you don't. Myself, I drink.
The thing is, I'm drunk and you're whiny. Tomorrow (if you catch me early) I'll be sober. But you'll still be whining. Ah good times! Shots and beers! That's the way Frankie rolls.
Excuse me for assuming you took a night off once in a great while from getting drunk off your ass. I stand corrected.

Ask Flunkie about drunk in public laws.

According to California Penal Code Section 647(f), it is illegal to be in any public place under the influence of alcohol or drugs in such a condition that you are unable to exercise care for your own safety or the safety of others, or to interfere with, obstruct or prevent the free use of any street, sidewalk, or other public way.- See more at: http://www.nocuffs.com/california-drunk-in-pu...

As I recall you said that when you where in the Navy, your job was to rescue downed pilots. Yet in the post , you claim to be a geologist in the Navy.
No no, you messed it all up dummy. Pay attention this time!

Two tours in Vietnam, six in the Navy. SAR off an aircraft carrier but I wasn't aboard the helo to rescue people. I was there to rescue high tech stuff while the SAR boys rescued people. Very exciting!

Then the GI Bill for a MS geology, then 33 years as a geologist, now retired. Ah good times!
You could have done similar but you chose to smoke pot and flip burgers and whine. Also you're a dope.

I usually don't leave my boat. But hell no I don't push it, I drive my wheelchair drunk. So sue me.

One time I was taking it to the liquor store and I was drinking a beer and cruising down the street when a cop car drove by. I tossed my half full beer at him and hit him square on his back window, beer foaming all over it was a beautiful shot! He screeches to a stop, backs up and starts yelling at me says WTF???!!! I said back off, I'm a veteran. He said yeah well don't throw beers at cars, next time I'll arrest you.

Ah good times! Lighten up fruitloops, I'm a veteran.

One time I was thrown out of a bar. Now when I say I was thrown out, I don't mean they asked me to leave. I mean they picked me up and physically threw me out on the street where a cop arrested me for drunk in public. I said officer I don't want to be drunk in public, I was drunk in a bar with no intention of being drunk in public but they threw me out into public it was beyond my control!(Courtesy of Ron White)(sorry if i mangled it Ron).

Look,if blacks are going tho whine about injustices that occurred 100 years ago, they might want to start by not KILLING EACH OTHER IN THE STREETS IN 2014.

Black men kill more black men in Chicago than the KKK ever lynched.....

Let me make this even easier for Jeff to understand:
Let's say 500 homo's a year were murdering each other in San Fran. You'd probably consider this some kind of crisis, wouldn't you? But to the esteemed Reverends Al and Jesse, well it''s just good business!

<quoted text>Excuse me, Nancy. Which constitution calls marriage a right?
I see princess. You're initial post was decimated, and you are unable to refute how stupid you came across, so rather than simply putting your tail between your legs and crawling away, you're decided to obfuscate by changing the subject. Got it.

Did I state somewhere that the Constitution calls marriage a right? Nope, I sure didn't. But since you're brought it up, I can tell you that the Supreme Court of the United States has called marriage a fundamental right in 14 separate rulings. If you need them listed out, just let me know.
Liberals R Defective wrote:
<quoted text>
Marriage is defined as one man and one woman.
No princess, it isn't. If it were, then Congress wouldn't have had to rush to enact the unconstitutional DOMA into law. DOMA proves that marriage is not defined as one man and one woman. Actually dear, marriage is defined as an "institution", a "commitment" and a "ceremony". Those definitions aren't changed in any way when the gender make up of the participants is altered.

nother tidbit , man's laws can be changed.
Yes princess, I'm well aware. It changes a lot. Especially when the majority seem to think they can enact unconstitutional laws. Our history is rife with these changes. Just like how unconstitutional laws banning gays from marrying have been struck down in the last few weeks in Texas, Virginia, Utah, Kentucky and Oklahoma. Laws that violate the constitution are struck down all the time dear. This isn't news.

You seem to be indicating that marriage has something to do with nature. It doesn't princess. Marriage is a man made institution, it has nothing to do with nature. Do they hold a lot of rabbit marriages in your trailer park?

It's a God thing. You wouldn't understand.
No deary, it's a state thing. Marriage is a civil institution. It has nothing to do with your imaginary friend. Just ask any of the millions of atheists that are currently married in this country.

Is there any other bit of nonsense that you'd like to try and trot out princess? Let us know.

Poor Barry. You must be so upset. In the last few weeks Georgia, Arizona, Tennessee, Kansas, Idaho, Missouri, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Utah all tried to pass legislation allowing bigot Christians to deny services to gays. Every single one of them never made it anywhere. Know why? Because our Constitution and our government will never allow Christians to have special rights to discriminate. Poor Barry, this must have been a horrible couple weeks for you.

<quoted text>and once again you fail to show that services that are not preformed in a place of public accommodation are covered. her place of business might be covered by the law but the event of their "wedding" is not.
This has been addressed ad nauseum. You are wrong, and you are being intentionally deceitful.

1) ALL services that are provided as a result of her place of business are covered. ALL services. That includes any off site flower placements. ALL the services are the result of her place of public accommodation. The law says so. The very same law that you denied for months that even qualified her as a place of public accommodation. The same law that you desperately and deceitfully try and reinterpret.

2) She was never asked to place the flowers at the event sight. This is something you continue to simply make up out of thin air, because you're so very desperate to find any way possible to excuse her discrimination.
