"Sodomite Marriage"

Marriage is a state's right issue and since I didn't live in Massachusetts while Romney was Governor and gay marriage became legal, it's none of my business. Even in very liberal California, the opponents put the "yes or no" issue on the state ballot, but Romney's answer was to resurrect a 90-year-old state law, aimed in part at preventing interracial marriage, to keep same-sex couples from flocking to Massachusetts for weddings. 

At least California tried, Romney tried to use a law that was declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1967 in the Loving vs Virginia case by unanimous decision. Will gay marriage be abolished just because Romney says so?

"and a decimated military all in one bill."

Wasn't Romney a Mormon missionary when most young men his age were being drafted and sent to Viet Nam?

"You're a great American."

Nope, I'm just an average American that took the step forward when they called my name. The thing is, I never complained or whined because Bill Clinton didn't serve even though most conservatives labeled him a draft dodger. And I'm not complaining because Romney was handing out Books of Mormon in France either.

BTW, why aren't the same "great American" conservatives calling Romney a draft dodger too? 

It's hypocritical how your same arguments of decimating the military used against Clinton just don't apply to Romney; maybe because there is a "R" behind his name?

You wanna marry a man, go right ahead, Stack, I ain't opposed in the least.

I might even send you a microwave oven as a wedding present.

Cuz after your honeymoon you might want something that won't brown your meat. Wink

    Does that R stand for retard, or reject? Maybe it because Romney is a homophobe, that would rather put gay patriots in jail instead of letting them fight the islamic bogeymen that ridge is also afraid of. 

    I mean gayness is a disease, romney is the cure.  Unless your a pedophile, in which case, mormonism would like to recruit you.

    Wow, I guess we'll just have to keep waiting for that cogent thought, won't we, numbnuts?

    Keep grunting, it'll come to ya.

      Hook, line, and sinker...AKA "Rope-A-Dope!!! In the famous words of Ronald Reagan, "Here we go again."

      Just like Romney continues to do with seemingly no effort, you've put your foot not only in your mouth, but way down your throat. Boneheaded statements huh? Let's see, here. You said, and I quote, "anyone that votes for Obama is an insufferable moron." Wow! Are you assumming that all past and present service members are voting for Romney? What about those who have lost limbs and come back with mental issues needing psychological help? Are they all (R)? How about the retired Vets that voted for Obama in the last election?

      How about Mrs. Gabrielle Gifford who was shot? Oh, yeah, she's (D), too, and her husband who's an astronaut. Morons, huh? What about the people at the convenience stores and grocery stores which bag your purchases...just every day average people trying to earn a living? Are they insufferable morons just because they may have, or, will will vote for Obama? So, it's okay for all those servicemembers to protect us...even giving their lives and limbs, but they have to be (R) or not vote at all in order to not be insufferable morons?

      What about the elderly who are just trying to make it every month on what they get for years and years of service? If they vote for Obama, they are insufferable morons as well? All the teachers and college professors in this world that vote for Obama are insufferable morons? The meter readers for electricity and water...what about them?

      Yep, you and Romney have everything in common. This is exactly the same reasoning regarding the 47% he mentioned in his private meeting...and he meant it just like you meant what you said. No regrets at all. "It's not my responsibility to care about those people" is what he said if my memory serves correctly. This is far from a true conservative. Extremist is more descriptive for both of you.

      Yeah, I threw you a bone with the "back to back" deal. I'm a former serviceman and I know full well who was in office. You took an obvious "give me" just as Romney did. Now, go ahead and gnaw on this while you attempt to reverse this irreversible, and fatal damage you've inflicted yourself with.

      By the way, BIG BIRD halloween costume sales are up by 500%. I suppose, now, Romney will buy out all the factories that make the costumes as well as the stores that are selling them.

       

      L.L.

      LOL, you do a lot of yappin' for somebody who never says nothin' don'tcha princess? You're a joke.

      Serviceman? Where? In the men's room at the greyhound station like your old man? LMAO!

      You're a lyin' phony and a gutless coward just like your father was and your grandfather was, admit it.

      You threw me a bone! Heh,heh,heh... You're not even a good liar.

      I hope you're not mad at me though.

      I hope this doesn't mean you don't want to share your hookers with me anymore.

      Remember when you invited me to come down there and you'd pay for the hookers and I declined?

      What does it cost you to get a woman to throw away her dignity and self-respect to lay down with a loser like you anyway?

        Your so full of it you stink  no, your memory does not serve you correctly, he did not say

        " IT'S NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY TO CARE ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE"

        He said, the 47 percent would probably not vote for him, because obama supporters do not pay income taxes, consider themselves victims, fell entitled to government handouts, and will never be persuaded to take personal responsibilty for their lives.

        AND GUESS WHAT NUMB #UTS...HE'S RIGHT!

        "All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it -- that that's an entitlement." ---- Mitt Romney

        There was no "probably" and he never said "handouts". That quote from Romney is all over the web, why didn't you just show the actual quote instead of changing the meaning?

        That 47% paying zero in Federal taxes includes current members of our military serving overseas and many WWII, Korea, and Vietnam vets collecting Social Security. Most of the Vets 65 and older worked after discharged, paid their fair share in Federal taxes, and paid into SS. Would you rather see our aged veterans pay 14% of their yearly average $14,000 from SS income, the same percentage Romney paid on $21 million?

        Lower the taxes on millionaires by raising the taxes on retired Vets, and increase military spending. That will pay off the Federal deficit.

          Sully, I understand your plight as well, okay. I really, really would prefer NOT to get into it with you over this...please. You've already started off all wrong. Just simply go to Google and type the words "Mitt Romney it's not my..." and it'll come up.

          Oh, you're right. He didn't say "it's not my responsibilty". He said, "It's not my JOB to care about the poor."

          I was under the impression that a job and responsibilities went hand in hand. Sorry I wasn't clear, and down to the "T" with the quote. I guess the name calling thing runs deep. Glad I know how to hold a decent and intelligent conversation without trying to verbally degrade the other person. Seems that's the trend, but I have really thick skin...and I'm proud of it.

            And you go to your wingnut sites if you want to talk about Obama.  Last I checked, this was Lottery Post, not Huffington Post.

            STFU, pansy-man.

            If you ever had an original thought you'd sit up all night wondering what the hell happened.

                Ridge:  It is interesting how study after study shows that republicans give more money to charities and a higher percentage of their income as well.  It has been my life experience that the louder someone screams how liberal and pro women or pro minority they are because they are a democrat, the more bigoted they often are since they hide behind that label (Well I am a Dem!...I cannot be bigoted or unfair!  I am above being questioned!).  Let me work or deal with a conservative Republican any day who will judge me based on my skills in getting the job done.

                I usually ask Dems when they scream about the poor, if they have ever done volunteer work in a homeless shelter (I have); donated their "free" time to charities (I have); or even made the time to take unwanted but usable items to shelters and to the Salvation Army vs selling them on Craigslist for a few dollars (I have).  Yet, these Dems always answer "no."

                You're absolutely right, Artist.

                They talk about it.

                We do it.

                And the best part?

                They actually think that all their yapping about it counts for actually doing something about it.

                But if their yapping doesn't do the trick, they'll just lie and say they did something.

                    Hmmm, let's see. FOOD NOT BOMBS right here in Houston. Myself and (11) others, both (D) and (R) have taken food downtown and participated in such an effort. Strange thing is, we've been TICKETED for trying to help those less fortunate. Any old clothes to give to them directly rather than take them to the Salvation Army and get picked over. Decent clothing I might add...nothing all stained or ripped.

                    Any canned goods and non-perishable items...and lots of times, hot meals purchased locally. You see, reasonable people know how support either party, respect each other, and also get along while finding common grounds. It's really not hard to do at all.

                          "All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it -- that that's an entitlement." ---- Mitt Romney

                          There was no "probably" and he never said "handouts". That quote from Romney is all over the web, why didn't you just show the actual quote instead of changing the meaning?

                          That 47% paying zero in Federal taxes includes current members of our military serving overseas and many WWII, Korea, and Vietnam vets collecting Social Security. Most of the Vets 65 and older worked after discharged, paid their fair share in Federal taxes, and paid into SS. Would you rather see our aged veterans pay 14% of their yearly average $14,000 from SS income, the same percentage Romney paid on $21 million?

                          Lower the taxes on millionaires by raising the taxes on retired Vets, and increase military spending. That will pay off the Federal deficit.

                          Your right Stack, I should not have used the quote from MSN, They clearly have a liberal bias, so it would be them that changed the meaning, but yes, he is correct, many have the entitlement mentality,

                          Romney /Ryan are not raising taxes on SS, THEY are NOT going to stick it to those on SS to pay down the debt, They are not lowering taxes on Millionaires, they will lower taxes on small business and the middleclass, so they can hire more people, thus, creating new tax payers to help pay down the debt.

                          With the middle class having a tax break, they will have more money to spend on goods and services, thus helping the sagging economy.

                          They will open the government land for natural gas, coal, oil, so that our utility bills will be lower, we are currently being gouged by the government to to push the solar agenda, which was an epic failure, the people running those companies became millionaires all the while these companies went bankrupt. Oh and they were obama supporters who channeled some of the tax payer money right back into his campaign fund, wow! what a coincidence.

                          The 14 percent, thats on investment income, not earned income, or didn't you think I knew anything about how investment works?

                          If I sell my stocks at a profit, I pay 14 percent in taxes, I already paid taxes on that money as earned income the first time around.

                          If I sell my stock at a loss, I can only claim up to 3000 in write offs, and thats across the board for everyone.

                          They're plan is to get rid of stupid spending, like turtle tunnels and cement toilets that cost 45k a pop.

                              I'm sorry if you think I outed you.

                              I have no idea what you do nor do I care.

                              It's your life and I couldn't care less what you do in the bedroom or with whom you do it. Not my concern.

                              And please don't elaborate.

                              "I'm sorry if you think I outed you."

                              For posting the Republican Party's anti-internet gambling plank?

                              If anything I outed you for all that crap you posted about the your party's platform on anti-Internet gambling being meaningless. You can't have it both ways; are your party's planks on abortion, the war in Afghanistan, Medicare, and taxes meaningless too?

                              When I pointed out the fact marriage is a state issue whether or not the President supports it, you responded like a play grade school playground bully. Here's another fact Bully, Romney's grandfather didn't support traditional marriage either so he moved his family to Mexico along with his brothers and their multiple wives.

                              Your childish innuendos won't change the fact I've always been in favor of traditional marriage (between one man and one woman)and always thought those vehemently protesting gay marriage must fear the gays because they secretly harbor those same thoughts. Gay marriage has no effect on my legal Kentucky marriage (between one man and one woman). You ought to be ecstatic over the fact neither of the two men getting married in Massachusetts when Romney was Governor will become pregnant and get an abortion.

                              The topic here isn't about same gender marriage or the secret thoughts of the homophobic; it's about the fact the Republican Party went on record saying they want to abolish all forms of Internet gambling because in their own words "Millions of Americans suffer from problem or pathological gambling".

                              News flash Bully, only two states approved online ticket sales and only one state lottery was selling tickets online when that plank was written. Illinois certainly doesn't have "millions of pathological gamblers", millions of players buying tickets online and the Inernet poker sites closed their doors to U.S. players well over a year ago.

                              Who are the millions of pathological gamblers the Republican Party wants to "protect" by banning online gambling?
