    I'm with those supporting more freedom and not those seeking to limit freedom.

    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.

    Just to catch up, they would need 54 percent of the estimated 1 million remaining ballots statewide, and more than a third of those are expected to come from King County.

    King county is supporting this, with 391,165 or 65.66% of the vote.

    Way 2 go Washington. You're leading the way.

    I don't think you understood my point, you said gay marriage would devalue straight marriage somehow, so my question is, isn't it already devalued by the mere fact that gay people around the country and around the world are getting married?

    A word of caution.... wave that red cape in front of the bull long enough you might just get the horns.
    What are you talking about?

    I'm already an outcast. That happened at the moment of my birth due to physical issues and has simply continued with philosophical, emotional, and psychological ones as well. It's nothing new, and in fact something that I relish to a certain degree. I'll take my principles to my grave, even if they're what sends me there.
    ok

    Sorry, but you cannot FORCE me to accept ANYTHING. You can make it very unpleasant for me not to, but you cannot FORCE it upon me. Ask the two banks I no longer do business with because they do not have any MALE tellers on their staff.
    I love the smell of homophobia and misogyny in the morning.

    I understood it quite well. What I was attempting to explain is that so far as I'm concerned the rest of the world doesn't exist, so what they do in Germany, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Canada, etc... has no bearing (positive or negative) on the issue for me.

    Good. Glad you got that bit. Some of us don't mind being the outcasts and pariahs. We see a different benefit for ourselves personally than personal relationships and the like.

    Then you should be very pleased.

    Life isn't about joy or happiness? Crap, I've been living my life all wrong then!

    I seem to recall the words "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness"
