    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    That's too bad.

    I guess now, by the time the couple get around to marriage, they've shared any STDs either may have.

    Are you kidding dude? It was not that long ago that homosexuality was still illegal in some parts of the country. You don't report a crime when you are targeted by police. Cops used to openly raid gay bars. Even in San Francisco they use to beat on em.

    That culture has not all of a sudden disapppeared after ten years of the ruling party basing their entire campaigns on stopping the homos from marrying.

    Guess what, they say things are cool. Its obvious they're doing this because Kids are always thinking that Ice is the greatest thing every known to man and thus saying something is "cool" is comparing it to Ice.

    For a while there kids were saying a good thing is dope. This was obviously because kids were implying that the particular item was similar to heroin and therefore great.

    Contrary to the asinine and ridiculously commericials by that obnoxious unfunny Wanda Sykes, I'd put money that most kids who are saying something is "gay" aren't doing so thinking "Man, that is so obviously bad like the notion of someone being sexually related to someone of the same sex". The vast majority use it for the same reason they might say those fireworks were cool, or a new car their friend got is sweet, or they refer to their significant other as a boo, or they say that a Dunk they just saw was sick, or that their friend is retarded for choosing to study instead of going to a party. Its part of the vernacular and language that is likely thought of and considered in a series manner about as much as any of those other words.

    I'm pretty sure that it doesn't actually prevent anyone from getting married either. It is more of an informative thing.

    Rh is only done in Colorado (if there), and it is most certainly done as an information thing. There is no way that they could justify denying a marriage license to a couple for having different Rh factors. It does provide an opportunity for couples who plan to have children an understanding of what specific complications could arise if the woman has a negative blood type and the man a positive blood type though. I'm not sure if it is/was done, but it would certainly be good if the people who did the testing provided the information to the couple.

    I agree with you...but also CT. MOST of the time the words 'gay' or 'fag' are tossed around almost playfully...even amongst queers. SOME find it as offensive as SOME blacks find the word nigger...repulsive no matter who speaks it.

    BUT...when you get right down to it...there are very few words you can call a guy that will stand as effectively assaulting their 'manhood' as calling them a 'faggot.' Call a prisoner a clown, a fool, an asshole...whatever...it might get tense but you will probably be OK. Call a felon a bitch...well...have back-up. Call a cowboy a goat roper, a sheep ****er...whatever...but call him a faggot and you are fighting. It plays on (most) mens insecurities.
