    Why is it a privilege? Marriage has been around forever and in actuality is nothing more than an invention of religious institutions. So if the government can't regulate mass. Why should they regulate marriage?

    Study: Gay Marriage Good For Economy

    (AP) Same-sex weddings could create hundreds of new jobs and pump hundreds of millions of dollars into California's economy, according to a new study released Monday.

    Gay couples are projected to spend $684 million on flowers, cakes, hotels, photographers and other wedding services over the next three years - so long as voters don't put a halt to the same-sex marriage spree, according to a study by the Williams Institute at University of California, Los Angeles School of Law.

    If the SCOTUS disagrees with me then how can there be a federal law called a (DOMA ) Defense of Marriage Act, signed by "Slick Willie" Clinton and approved by over 80 senators stating marriage is a union between a man and a woman?

    You know, even if I assume that this failure is "the will of the people," I'm really sick and tired of people telling me that "the will of the people" is sacrosanct when "the will of the people" is bigotry.

    There's a reason we live in a representative republic, and have law, and courts.

    People are fickle.

    We elect leaders to make hard choices.

    Our problem isn't that our leaders make those hard choices and get kicked out of office, it's that our leaders keep schmoozing us in order to keep bleeding us in exchange for favors from their masters.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
