    No, they must have been drunk or incompetent. They failed to show any Constitutional support, which is what Roberts is pointing out. He is stating what we all know; they don't care what the Constitution says, they made their minds up already, and now are trying to justify it. All as I have been saying. They want to be the deciders. A majority of 9 people in robes, deciding over the will of 320 million people.

    They should have said that there is nothing in the Constitution that gives the Federal government the power to decide this, to force it on the population. It remains with the States, as the Constitutions provides for.

    It seizes for itself a question the Constitution leaves to the people, at a time when the people are engaged in a vibrant debate on that question. And it answers that question based not on neutral principles of constitutional law, but on its own “understanding of what freedom is and must become.”
    It is instead about whether, in our democratic republic, that decision should rest with the people acting through their elected representatives, or with five lawyers who happen to hold commissions authorizing them to resolve legal disputes according to law. The Constitution leaves no doubt about the answer.

    Hey, once they decided that marriage was a civil right, everything they wrote for SSM is supported.

    Not that I agree with that initial decision but once made, they have to abide by it in their decisions. Too bad the conservatives couldnt respect that earlier decision.

    They all have husbands and wives and children and houses and dogs, and, you know, they've all made themselves a part of something and they can talk about what they do. What am I gonna say? "I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How've you been?

    Just noticed this because of someone else replying to it...

    You are aware what the term UNDER 26 means right???

    It means once you are no longer UNDER 26, you are not covered.

    So, therefore, someone 26 years old is not covered under their parent's insurance.



    Just thought I would point that out.

    You should not respect a wrong decision, otherwise we'd still have slavery. Marriage has never been a "civil right".

    Nothing wrong about it. Unless you believe that all Americans shouldnt have due process and equal protection under the law for govt conferred benefits and privileges for the same contract.

    And (reminded), yes, the courts did decide that marriage is a civil right. I already posted that. Hello?
