    Redress, how are you? I wonder if you were aware that 31 states have constitutional amendments defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman. When and amendment was on the ballot it has never been defeated except in Arizona who also included civil unions. Oh and there will be more states with amendments on their ballots in Nov.

    Overthrowing, hi-jacking, filibustering the will of the people has become modern day politics. It's only cool to do that when it's done for something one approves of. After that, it's activist.

    Navy is right I think. I seem to recall that court is often in hot water and challenged. Moreso than any other court I can recall. i wouldn't start actually counting chickens just yet but it is time to round the chickens up and get them ready to count. The ideological opinion in cross-section America is just about to tip in the favor of SSM and judging by the tolerance trend, it should be happening any day now. Won't be long now.

    I am aware of that. However, the times, they are a changing. It is quite possible that SSM will be legal across the country within 5 years. Are you ready? I am.

    Thanks CA, that is all I am saying....I think the SCOTUS will settle the issue one way or the other.

    That is the big day, which will come within the decade IMO.

    This addresses my comments and question how? Hint: it does not, it is another evasion. You called the judge activist. For that to be true you need to show that his ruling is flawed.

    You're right. How dare we let people decide for themselves what marriage is and who they can marry!!! The majority always knows better.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The court is challenged and overturned more on a numberical basis. It is also the business court in the country. By percentages, it is pretty close to normal.
