    If it stays as it is, it won't make it that far.

    You're going to say the rest of us don't matter?

    This is not about feelings. It's about taking a stand for what's right. The American Way, remember that old thing?

    Why would this even make gays happy? It only makes vindictive activists happy in my view. The rules are simple. Don't show any public affection that can violate their laws.

    You are incorrect. Integration, women voting, the end of slavery. Get used to it.

    If what stays as it is? Are you predicting a World War? The mighty Creator knows we've given enough NUKES to the rest of the world, like classic enemies India and Pakistan, my top pick.

    You said that the athletes could be under another flag and the State flag would be another flag and would actually represent the USofA. It wouldn't really represent that State. You and Obama would get your much needed protest and the athletes would be able to participate in the games a win/win scenario.

    No one will be happy. This isn't a happy thing.

    The flag has to be a country. For that they are on their own.
