    Yep. But marriage is recognized by the government. If you recognize heterosexuals in thus way, you need to recognize homosexuals in this way.

    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.

    Except it's not. Marriage is a (1) : the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law. Now who is redefining words?

    Yeah guess what? I don't speak Mexican either.
    Well, there's no language called "Mexican" so there's that. Nice, big, fat fail on your part.

    I'm done with this thread...

    If there was a good legal argument for gay marriage then gay marriage would have been amended into the constitution.

    The issue is NOT a matter of opinion but rather a matter of law and how our government passes legislation.

    It's really that simple...

    The word eugenics is about cleaning up the gene pool.

    Assholes perverted it to their racist ends.

    What is wrong with offering those who carry genetic monsters compensation for being sterilized?

    As long as nobody is forcing them.

    And we don't know the origin of homosexuality, nor can it be clearly defined as a "defect".

    It only harms quality of life to the extent other people persecute them for it.

    You're defining words - just like I said I couldn't speak "Mexican" (apparently that went over your head).

This company was TOLD they had to hire minorities - not the BEST MAN FOR THE JOB BUT MINORITIES IN GENERAL...

    How is that not blatant discrimination?

    How about these ****ing progressives that are so filled with hate that they will ATTEMPT to attack me when I'm out rallying in support of the Tea Party?

    Don't tell me about discrimination because I get it every ****ing day from people who know my position on issues and know who I am...
    First off, I'm a libertarian.

    Secondly. Grow the hell up. You're a white dude with a roof over your head, the ability to provide in-demand skilled work and live in a society where the majority of people think, act and talk like you. Blatant discrimination is when you can't even get a job. Do you know what the greatest thing about your situation is? Despite the best efforts of whatever government was trying to provide a Hispanic person a job (Hispanic unemployment is 9.6%, white unemployment is 6.8%), the company STILL hired a white guy. They STILL hired you. The Mexican did not get the job, YOU did.

    I am defining words, not re-defining words to suit my purpose. And perhaps you were making a joke, but I somehow doubt it. I'm thinking you backed out.

    So I can't get married by a justice of the peace, with no religious ceremony at all?
