    Obamacare is a perfect example.
    And a law found to be unconstitutional is unconstitutional even while being challenged. Which means those marriages that happened before the stay are still valid.

    NOPE...... That is NOT how the legal system works...

    I know progressives know absolutely NOTHING about that but... It takes the SCOTUS to stop a law or a district judge to issue a cease/halt order which would be overturned in 2 seconds.

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....
    So if you don't care if other people eat peas, why do you care if other people, when they get married, happen to marry someone of the same gender?

    This came up in California. Marriages performed before Prop 8 passed were still valid after Prop 8 passed. The marriages performed before the stay are still valid, regardless what the governor claims.

    They don't need farm subsidies - if you want to look at "farm subsidies" take a look at the assholes in Chicago who get them because the just happen to have a garden on their front lawn.

    Don't even make me get into that bull****..... Paying people to waste perfectly good product......
