    I dont believe anyone can drive a car 200 MPH on public roads and be safe about it. Although your point is made. What I should have said is people should consider it a major issue when a person or group of people is denied a right or a privilege for no logical reason.

    See how that works?
    I will see how this works in the next four years if the United States doesn't become another Greece.

    Wrong again NP.....just like always. You will soon be enjoying gay marriage in the great state of Washington...and the chips are beginning to fall. Your ONLY hope was to have Romney stack the court with right-wing activists....but now that won't happen. Gay marriage is going to come before the Supreme Court and it will soon be the law of the land across all of this great nation. I've never been so proud of my country....which is finally living up to its promise of freedom and justice for ALL, not just some.

    I told NP a year ago that even HE would live to see the day that gay marriage became recognized under the law. These states are just the beginning. Bigoted attitudes are changing exponentially. It will soon be available all across this great nation.

    Times change, people change. That's why we get old and die. Stop your worrying.
