    I couldn't agree more, just owning a gun, smoking, not wearing a helmet, not wearing a seatbelt, which health insurance one buys, or doesn't buy, what kind of car one drives, the list goes on.

    But, you demand a big goddamn intrusive government machine, you have to take the good with the bad.

    Did you read Justice Kennedy's opinion in the DOMA case or Scalia's dissent? The fact of the matter is, Kennedy said while states are free to fashion their own laws they must do so in a way that does not discriminate or violate the USSC. This is what prompted Scalia's vitriolic "the writing is on the wall" dissent.

    The reason the Supreme Court didn't take it up is because almost every single circuit court has ruled that llimitations to marriage violate the Constitution. More continue to fall every day. Which goes back to what I was saying....you either have to be incredibly naive or extremely optimistic to believe that things are going to change course. This ship has sailed. Sorry Charlie.

    The SCOTUS didn't rule? I didn't think so. Hey, you wanted hate crime legislation and would love to make racism a crime, well this come along with that much government power.

    Sorry....but I have no problem with people owning a gun. If they want to smoke, let them. Not wearing a helmet or a seatbelt....stupidity...but I don't think we need laws mandating it. I would mandate laws requiring parents to seatbelt their children though, because I DO believe that government should have a role in protecting children from their parents ignorance and stupidity.

    Health insurance? I don't like the Heritage Foundation/Republican plan of the insurance mandate that ended up in the ACA. I support a single payer system because I believe a for-profit healthcare system teeters on lunacy. Just the idea is illogical if you step back and actually think about it.

    Wow....you think you know so much about me. I have never said that "racism should be a crime". I do, however, support hate crime legislation when it is drafted properly....most people, other than prosecutors, judges, defense lawyers, really understand what hate crime legislation really is. I suspect that you don't really understand it yourself.

    God doesn't have a social security number so he's not entitled to an opinion on the matter.
