    For you to have thought of, yes...



    But on to the topic.

    What is that, again?

    Oh yeah.

    Well, I'm waiting on more rulings in this matter, dependent on what the repubs who now control the house do when they are seated next year.

    If they somehow totally repeal the bill, it would be moot.

    Watching the Dems implode on election day, then the Bush tax rates get extended, and now Obamacare getting challenged on consitutionality right before it gets defunded anyway.........

    What a fantastic few weeks this has been. Perhaps a nation-saving few weeks at that.

    Yep, you are correct, there at one time were horrible things like slavery in this country. Then it was abolished, not by a decree, or a regulative body, or even by popular vote, but rather through the amendment process. That is your solution. Not the courts, and not through the appointment of Czar's and ever increasing bureaucracy. You want Gay marriage, propose an amendment.

    Predictable, typical, and thoroughly brained-washed response.

    Not exactly. There was a war, to start with, and then the courts actually did interfer in civil rights and it was not done by popular vote. The courts acted because the LAW enabled them to act. The law is clear concerning discrimination. And we don't vote on matters of the individual. To deny anyone rights, you have to have a just cause. I had a lawyer once try to explain that to folks on WS once. The majority is not free to impose their beliefs on others without just cause to do so.

    So, you see judges like representatives, not obligated to law, but whores for public opinion polls? Is that your ideal?
