    I celebrate the loss of bigotry where I find it. I also mourn the loss of our constitutional government. Throwing out one to achieve the other is a fool's errand.

    That's kinda funny because here in Illinois they jacked the speed limit up to 70, here 55 is the "slow lane."

    You can disagree all you like. This is what makes the United States great.

    But at any rate - the feds can do absolutely NOTHING if you disobey their stupidity..... They're like the UN, and what happens when we go against the UN??? nothing but a bunch of crying and threats...

    In the end all the feds can say to Utah is "well we disagree."

    Utah can do whatever it wants and the feds can go pound sand.

    This isn't Selma, Alabama, despite the fact GLAAD (or however you spell it) wants it to be.

    This is the Roberts GOP court.
    Preceded by the Rehnquist GOP court.
    How do DEM progress--ives get blamed for the courts ?

    No, that will not occur today.

    Because the the failure of the SCOTUS precedes the recent courts. The progressive Living Document crap came decades ago.

    So we're super authoritarian but the fed doesn't actually do anything to prevent your actions. That's... interesting.

    As far as I'm concerned the government shouldn't be involved in the marriage business. Theoretically they're not considering marriage is nothing more than a contract - which is what angers me even more about the gays. There is absolutely nothing stopping them from signing civil contracts... This whole plight by them is nothing more than a plight of "social acceptance" which is goofy considering no one can force another to accept an idea.... I don't care much for peas, yet you can shove peas down my throat all day and that still wont make me like peas, but at the same time I don't give a **** if others like peas or of others grow peas.... To each his own....
