    Come on, NP. Face it... it's passed. I was thinking about you, last night, when I heard. Just accept it.

    I think that if a trained psychiatric doctor were to say something like that his opinion would carry more weight than someone who says something that has no basis on fact and has no training in the area. its why those who wish to give expert opinions in court are required to meet a "Daubert test" and those who cannot are prevented from giving opinions

    So how does it feel to know that the tide has turned and more and more gays are going to be getting married? Just think, it could be 2013 when SCOTUS rules DOMA illegal. You could live to see a gay wave in this country!
    To be honest with you I don't care about DOMA.......Those 32 states that have consitutional amendments defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman is more important.

    I would agree but these are mainstream civil rights that apply to everyone. NOw I support gay marriage, SSM marriage and I think gays ought to serve in the military, but this is a minor issue to most americans.

    How is your marriage harmed if Dave wants to Marry Steve or if Valerie wants to call Mary her wife?
    How are you hurt if Bruce goes into a diabetic coma and Bill has the same rights to make medical decisions due to a legal document they signed that I have for my wife?

    Your opinion of what the New Deal did differs greatly from mine. I saw it as giving penicillin to someone with pneumonia.

    I realize those who see social freedom-abortion, the repeal of anti sodomy laws, and gay marriage-as extremely important may vote for a candidate that supports these things EVEN if they understand that his economic policies and judicial picks hasten the destruction. What is silly are those who vote dem on abortion or gay rights pretend that the stuff they don't care about is important to their choices
    I don't see any candidate with any awesome plan to dramatically fix the economy. Minor changes 'tis all I see. I certainly didn't see either candidate as one who's economic policies or judicial picks destroying anything. The economy is not going to fall apart. This is catastrophizing hooey. There will be valleys and hills. There always are. No one is going to do something so dramatic as to destroy the ecosystem. Those that believe Obama will don't know what they are talking about. Might things get worse? Maybe. Might they get better? Maybe. Will they be destroyed? Nah.

    Many Americans may consider it a minor issue but I dont think they should. We should all care about equal treatment under the law for every citizen. Thats all im trying to say.
