    exactly

    not to mention idiot people claiming false suits is NO reason to protect peoples rights.


    Bad cops plant evidence
    Bad judges make faulty rulings
    Women falsely claim rape

    etc etc etc

    that doesn't mean we get rid of all cops, judges and drop rape as a crime.

    The over dramatic appeals to fantasy emotion and panic topped off with illogical strawmen always entertain me.

    There will probably be more lawsuits over this than people going bankrupt over medical bills.
    Yet, for that they disrupted our entire medical system and called it "obamacare".

    Perhaps you should be fired for being heterosexual to see what it's like. Oh wait, this would never happen. Rampant selfishness and doomsday predictions do not impress.

    Quite frankly, I see this as another democrat give-away to the trial lawyers.
    Anybody can come up with a phony lawsuit. Democrat lawyers are not short of cases.

    As far as I can see, this is the only major accomplishment Obama has delivered during his Presidency. Not much else has looked like progress. But it's about time we sorted out this equality thing. These aren't aliens or immigrants. These are your fellow natural born americans and they should not be lesser simply because of a gender attraction choice.
