    More to look forward to if Republicans take congress. Trust me, this kind of thing will be part of the circus.

    Does he mean how stopping legal discrimination against gay people immediately brought down the economies of Canada, the UK, Sweden etc.?

    Yeah......:rolleyes:

    It's crazy! It's just getting worse. These people will tell any lie they can think of.

    Sounds like par for the course in East Texas. If you go to KETK's website, you can hear all sorts of "talk back" segments hosted by this schmuck where he lets callers call in. The callers are saying some nasty things about Muslims, saying that the left is a freakshow for supporting gay rights, and then I had to turn it off because I was getting sickened. These people are disgusting.

    Who do you think Reagan was sticking it to?

    I'll bet it was Haig.

    I think it's more a case of blindly repeating the brainwashing that's been instilled within them to the point that they don't realise what they're saying. It's just like the UK was 30 years ago, before everyone realised that THE HOMOSEXUAL MENACE they'd been taught about is actually just people who want to get on with their lives just like everyone else. It is crazy, but that's what happens when people refuse to look beyond their own borders.

    I'm just constantly reminded of the Clinton years. Last time the gave us DADT and DOMA. I shudder to think what they're going to give us this time.

    No...but if history repeats itself, civil war.

    "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

    Unfortunately, the definition of "we" for some isn't inclusive of all. :mad:

    I envision our whole society collapsing if we let these damn heretics marry.

    This agenda must be stopped. THINK OF THE CHILDREN! Imagine the horror of watching two grown men holding hands and kissing. It will scar them for life.

    Yes, it is. We still have DADT on the books. If the court strikes it down, it just makes me wonder what the Republicans will put in it's place if they get congress. You can't tell me they'll just let it go. They won't. They could make it even worse.

    I can only do what I can do. I am voting, but others have to as well.

    They might be ridiculous, but they do a LOT of damage. This is exactly the kid of crap they pulled while Clinton was in office. They told whatever lie they felt like.

    An argument for doing away with laws that protect the stupid.

    A Democratic minority would be smart to use something like this as a wedge. True small-government libertarians would be hard-pressed to support their rep voting to restrict rights or support the continuation of inequality. But they're going to be feeling a lot of pressure from the social conservatives to find a small-government reason to support bigotry.

    If the Democrats were smart, they would exploit the mistrust and division between the establishment GOP and the teabaggers. But they won't. They're afraid of being called mean names by the likes of David Broder.

    You're right. They were wimps when they had the majority and they'll be wimps in the minority too.

    There are so many other problems in this country that are more likely to endanger the national economy or national security, you'd have to both hate gays AND have a shocking lack of perspective in order to buy into this thrash.

    This is basically an idiot test.
