    No not really. I just don't think there is any significant movement for plural marriage. So your slippery slope contention is to say the least absurd.

    Cool. Same book that has a definition for "d'oh"

    D'oh - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary


    So you're saying dictionaries never change their definitions?

    I'm waiting for marriage between close relations. Should pretty much close the loop on estate taxes.

    Thank you, Verthaine. Are you saying that you are the original "they" in "they say"?

    Just like you don't see anything to the contrary, either. It comes down to "change", doesn't it, liberal? How much will America change over the next four years? Do you see full blown Socialism for us within the next four years?

    Well, I've got a hot cousin, too, but I never really considered it, myself.

    Did I say that? I thought I was just quoting a definition from a credible source. All you've done so far, is blow hot air.

    Not much change, slight improvement in the economic scene, lowered crime rates and not a chance in the lowest regions of Hell that America will experience "full blown Socialism" - ooops, there are way too many "independents" with their own definitions of multiple words for me to say there won't be "Full blown Socialism" in the US. I'm fairly sure they will be able to fit some actions by the President and Congress that will fit into the fantasy that they call "full blown Socialism" but none of the remainder of the world's population will agree with them. This disagreement will of course be seen as validation for their fantasy.

    I never claimed to be able to predict the future.
    Every moment is different from the one preceding it.
    All I can say is that if I am still alive,I hope my bank account continues to go upward,like its been doing since Reagan.

    We both should because it's contrary to the definition of marriage and there's no real purpose behind it.... other than for selfish reasons, of course.

    oh...look who's getting snippy.

    Please try to follow along.

    You are the one who brought up definition and "change".

    You are the one who will have to learn to deal with equal rights for all regardless of sexual orientation.

    Have fun with that.

    Re: Gay marriage is approved by popular vote in Maine, Maryland

    Historic marriage definitions:

    One man and his property (any number of women)
    One man and his property (one woman)
    One man and one woman (any age)
    One man and one woman (same race, adults only)
    One man and one woman (mixed race ok)
    One person and one person (any gender. look, SSM is already legal in some places. society did not collapse)
