In fact, I would not be surprised if your ISP is owned by a company that supports same sex marriage. You may have no choice but to throw you computer into the ground and cancel your internet. It was nice knowing you.
    Interesting, where do you suppose most of your computer's vital parts are made?

    I find it interesting that they ruled it is unconstitutional based on the states constitutional amendment that prohibits discrimination based on sex.

    Too many victory laps too soon. Over three quarters of the states still do not allow gay marriage. But on a good for you note, doesn't Mexico allow gay marriage now?

    Intel, on pending Oregon ballot measure: We support marriage equality | OregonLive.com

    Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) also apparently supports SSM.

    That alone accounts for quite a few processors and graphics cards.

    And that same Prop8 was deemed unconstitutional, iirc. So you're advocating that stupid people, who already know how their Supreme Court will rule, should waste tax payer money trying to change something they can't win. How bizarre that you righties only think liberal government spending is waste.

    As has already been stated, the Supreme Court did not rule Prop 8 was unconstitutional, they ruled that the people defending Prop 8 did not have standing. In other words, they bunted the issue of whether or not same sex marriage is a constitutional right.

    I know I'm hitting this post twice but I had a thought, a snarky one. With so many more males than females in China, do you really believe all those men are not having sex? Have they decided that women can have many partners? Yeah, China ain't going to work for him beyond the surface anyway, I don't think.

    China's biggest problem? Too many men - CNN.com

    Exactly and how would it be different in New Mexico? Basically it's the USSC taking on a spat between bigots and the NMSC? If the bigots didn't have standing then, how is it they'll have standing now?
