    Nope, and I didn't say he did. However, if he does, he should be recused.

    The 14th Amendment was made long before the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Try again.

    We may know very different conservatives, Mal. The ones I know (including myself and my husband and most of our friends and family) are in favor of legalizing most drugs, don't give a **** about abortion, don't give a **** about gay marriage (people's bedroom preferences are something I'd rather not know about), and don't want to be policed by anyone.

    So you have no proof that he should have recused himself, you just think that he should because he's gay. No other reason.

    So when a town votes that saying certain things outloud in public they you will support them?
    When a town votes that there can be no guns in public at all you will support them?
    When a town votes you can't smoke in your car you will support them?

    A lot of them have, and I'm sure you could come up with a lot of examples. Others have been supported by conservatives and resisted by liberals.

    Sometimes the conservatives are on the right side, that is the side of personal liberty, and sometimes the liberals are on the right side.

    Now, if more would take a close look at libertarian philosophy.... oh, that's just a pipe dream isn't it?

    Do you believe that the actions of many of the left leaning politicians, including requiring people to buy healthcare insurance and trying to make it difficult to buy cigarettes, sweets & soda, etc. are demonstrating a desire to stay out of your life?

    That's just the thing, if you believe what you say you do, you've not been liberal all your life. Wanting government to leave you alone is not a liberal position. Unless of course you're claiming to be one of selfish liberals that are fine with the government sticking their noses in everyone else's business, as long as YOU are left alone.

    Good thing that is not what is happening. The judge was doing his job.
