The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
But I will be the first to agree with you. If the SCOTUS says something is law, it's law. Don't mean I gotta like the law. There are a few laws I already don't like. But we are a nation and a people of laws. I respect the law and I find it a virtue to conduct my life obeying the law's of the land.
If it's something that I truly cannot tolerate, I will lobby to change said law, all the while, obeying that law.
All that being said, it really ain't my battle anyways. I just don't care who marry's who. My only interest in the issue in the first place is founded on my belief that "liberty and justice is for all" is supposed to mean, "liberty and justice for all." Perhaps that is because I was raised saying that every morning from the first grade on, and it kinda stuck in my heart. And if I am to error, I choose to error on the side of liberty.
Myself, I married a woman. That's the way I roll. All my babies, watched 'em pop out myself. Never an abortion on my watch. Six years in the Navy serving the best I know how, never got cornered by a queer. (Maybe that's because I'm too damn ugly but I digress.) But I do know some gay folks. And I just love them to pieces. I can't let my southern, engrained, homophobia prevent me from taking any happiness away from them.
I used to be exactly like you chief. I just changed. Can't say exactly when or where, I just did. Maybe when the issue took on a personal face to me and I knew good people directly affected by it. Maybe it was just a slow awakening. I used to tell the very best queer jokes. I just can't bring myself around to it anymore.
But I do respect your opinion you old salt. I just don't look at it like that no mo'.
Other than that, truth be told, I don't even care if monkey's marry giraffes.

moonbeam is not gonna be ag anymore after november
and kamala harris is an extremely troubled candidate, even here in the uber liberal bay area
the progressive ag by the bay is too much seen as personification of sf's soft-on-crime extremism
there have been a number of hi publicity issues with ms kamala, and sf's SANCTUARY status comes into play
particularly, the edwin ramos situation must perforce rip at every mother's heart, african american, hispanic, gay...
ms kamala may win sf but she's gonna have a lot of trouble out here in the east bay
and a dem doubted in walnut creek has little chance state wide
ask john garamendi, ellen tauscher, bill baker, richard pombo, jerry mcnerney, all of whom have been my rep
i'm surprised his honor (ap, too) can't see a move ahead, neglects even to put forth the effort
we're looking at a new gub out here, as well, and that's 50-50 right now
