    I hate that SCOTUS has become partisan. It kinda defeats the purpose.

    It is covered. Marriage is not covered by anything in the constitution.

    I guess you missed the post where I said that a solid majority of New Yorkers are in favor of legal recognition for same-sex marriage. We are, after all, a fairly blue state.

    Historically the Supreme Court has regarded marriage issues as the domain of the individual states -- as in, a matter of state's rights, a concept phony conservatives like you forget all about when it suits your purposes.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Did I say it has the words "Air Force"? No. What I said was "its is covered". Now why don't you go off and laugh at your own stupidity.

    Why is it cons think the states should handle healthcare and have no problems with state immigrant laws but this bothers them? You tea party patriots aren't for ole Barry telling you how to live your life are you? You sure you want the US government should intervene? I do to but actually let's make this law work for about 41 more states.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
