    I think it is silly that people actually think marriage is a sacred union only available for men and woman. Sure a Church marriage can be considered "Sacred" but what is the big deal about Homosexuals receiving a marriage license?
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Re: California gay marriage ban overturned: report

    You know, there is something I do not understand - That would be why some people want to ban gay marriage, don't want gays in the military, and basically want to deny gays the same rights that everybody else has, when the fact is, that America, all the way back to the Revolution, is based on "gayness". In order to prove my point, I now lay out a chapter from my new book (that does not now, nor ever will exist).

    From DanaRhea's Fractured American History........

    That the United States has always been a gay nation cannot be argued. In fact, America itself was founded upon "gayness". Archeologists, stumbling upon an old battle hymn used by the early American military, have finally decoded it's meaning.

    From "Yankee Doodle", which was originally created by the British, in order to poke fun at the American upstarts:

    "Yankee Doodle went to town
    Riding on a pony"

    Yes, that's right. A pony. A real man would have ridden a horse. But why a pony? That is explained in detail in the next passage:

    "Stuck a feather in his cap
    And called it macaroni"

    This is key. The term "macaroni" refers to The Macaroni Club in England, from which arose one of the greatest homosexual scandals in the history of that nation. The "macaronis" were a group of very wealthy and effeminate men, who loved to wear makeup, huge powdered wigs, dresses, and even panties, while discussing political events of the day, all the while sipping tea and eating crumpets. And, of course, they thoroughly enjoyed sodomizing each other.

    So, according to the song, what we have is a very poor hick, who is very gay, and who does not have the wealth of the macaronis, but tries hard to emulate their "queerness".

    "Yankee Doodle keep it up
    Yankee Doodle Dandy
    Mind the music and the step"

    Minding the music and the step is something that gays are very good at. Just ask Baryshnikov.

    "And with the girls be handy"

    Pure sarcasm.

    And what song did the very first American military instruct their drum and fife corps to play, as they went into battle? Why it was Yankee Doodle, of course.

    But, you say, they just did it to rub it in England's face. To that argument, I reply "Precisely, that is exactly what they did". To the British, the American military yelled triumphantly "We're queer, and we're here!!

    Class dismissed.

    The will of the people is immaterial in matters of law. Something is either illegal or it is not.

    This is true. As I've said time and time again, the anti-GM lobby has no real rational basis for denying GM. You often hear, "They do have equal protection: they can marry someone of the opposite sex just like straight people can." It is the most flimsy of arguments and I'm glad that this judge had the logic to deny it.

    The battle isn't over but the anti-GM movement will have a tough time proving that letting gay people marry has nothing to do with equal protection.

    Have fun with that

    Re: California gay marriage ban overturned: report

    whenever it's been tried, gay marriage has failed before the votership, 31 for 31

    congrats on your transient legal victory

    the consequences will be electoral, nation wide

    once again, the elites know best, voters be damned

    happy day!

    seeya in november---in michigan, pennsylvania, missouri, delaware, arkansas...

    america's watching
