    The difference between me & you, Deuce, is I pointed out your hypocrisy. As I said (and you apparently missed), you are free to insult them all you want. But be prepared to have it called out that you are insuting their protected Constitutional rights.

    I don't expect you to understand the distinction.

    As for vesper's rights, when he starts supporting my right to skip recurrent training as a commercial pilot due to my religious objections, I might consider his right to not bake a cake.
    I must have missed the part where Vesper was responsible for your training as a commercial pilot. Since it has nothing to do with my posts, I"ll not waste my time commenting on it further.

    Keep insulting him and the others. I assume it's a victory of some sort for you? Whatever makes you feel good, Deuce. I'll keep pointing out their Constitutional right - the one that's spelled out in black & white for all of us to read - and your determination to discount & attack that Constitutional right they have.

    As for denying gay couples business, I would have no problem getting rid of that law. I believe that business owners have a right to discriminate who they sell their property to. There's a whole thread that was made about that very subject of which I was a participant in to show that I'm speaking the truth on that. Let's get that law changed.
    But people are losing their jobs if they refuse to participate in things that violate their moral conscience especially small business owners that the state has made law. By you stating that we should get rid of the law proves you realize this to be a fact.

    I don't like a lot of rulings that have been handed down, from SCOTUS to the circuit courts to local courts. Should I shut up about them, or am I free to have an express an opposing opinion without being insulted.
    If 30+ judges all say the same when they have nothing more in common than their ruling and that they are judges...yes I will shut up about it. And I never said that I would tell them to shut up about it. But I will point out the futility of their idiocy by pointing out that 30 + judges with nothing in common other than their rulings and that they are judges disagree with them.

    You should also note that I didn't scoff at their beliefs until they started bringing it up, and I also didn't use the judge examples on them after they did that. I used history.

    Anyways, gotta get to work. If everything works out I'll be back online after 12am-1am PST though.

    I remember your posts on that thread about that very same subject, and yes, you made your opinion very clear. That's an opinion I share with you. I struggle with the concept of forcing people into commerce with their own property against their will.

    I struggle with most laws that force people into doing anything that involves their personal property against their will, which is why I tend to view the opinion of judges with a skeptical eye. SCOTUS passed a ruling that said my land could be seized from me against my will, all in the name of "Imminent domain", because some judges don't think my property is my property. Judges make mistakes. The judge in this case didn't make a mistake IMO, but many others have, and they don't have the respect for our personal rights the way some people in this thread seem to believe.

    : I have read where savvy lawyers have specifically requested which judges they want to hear their cases, based on, partly, knowing how the judge is likely to rule - because of personal reasons. They have even delayed a hearing if an "antagonistic" judge is appointed. If I were a client, I would probably hire that lawyer, if possible. Why take a chance on losing, since it's going to cost money no matter who you hire. Human nature, I guess.

    I don't believe judges are infallible. And I believe the argument in support of marriage for all would resonate better if it came from people's own beliefs and not those of judges, unless you or anyone else plans to never question the rulings of any judges on anything again. Me, I would never commit to that.

    I'll be asleep later (soon) so have a good night and we'll talk again soon!

    Of course that's the way it rolls Polgara. In the Oregon case, folks were well aware in advance how the judge was going to rule so days prior to his ruling there was an effort to try and block it through a San Francisco panel and it was denied. It is what the left has always done when they can't get something passed at the ballot box. They cherry pick justices to rule in their favor. And it is also a cake walk for them when the elected officials of that state happen to be of the same cloth and refuse to uphold the states constitution in the process.

    And the reality is, almost 1/2 of the country doesn't think as we do. It's going to take some getting there to change that, but being antagonistic isn't the way. JMO.
    Exactly what right of theirs have I violated?
