Everything should be up to the people.

    I took out the insult from my previous message, because it would just apply to you, not everyone else.

      You can want anything you want, but I give people more credit than you do.  You're one of those people who think you know better than everyone else in the "red" states.  What do the elitists call it?  "Flyover country."  Well, you and I are on polar opposites: I have faith in people, and you have faith in a bunch of elitists.

      You're the kind of person who doesn't agree in tax breaks, because you think the government knows how to spend our money better than we do.  Or maybe you want to say "tax breaks for the wealthy" or some other BS like that.

          No, those things wouldn't be OK, but I would agree to send you to the moon without a helmet.

              Why don't they just put an education "tax" on the coilition against gambling, for the money to be allocated to education from mega millions. Then let the good folks from California vote on that..! Let the coi;ition against gambling pay for education, then see what kind of a tune they would sing.

                Nah, they might have a "mini" tea party ( west coast style ) if that ever happened. these people have lost their common sense....!

                  I don't know much about gay marriages, except as they pertain to Californios getting to play Mega Millions.  I'm actually not particularly concerned whether Californios get to play MM, or not....Now I think about it, I find I don't care whether they allow them all to marry people of their same sex, also.

                  If it's a matter of choice, so long as nobody tries to force me to play Mega Millions or marry anyone, most particularly a male, Californios can do just about whatever they please without me being able to generate an opinion.

                  But I do agree we humans, including voters, are stupid.  And I wouldn't mind going off to a moon colony if they won't make me marry someone of my own sex.

                  Otherwise, I'm indifferent.

                  Further deponent sayeth not.

                    Groups like this get money from the Indian casino's so saying they are against gambling is a fraud. They are just more sleazy lawyers in search of a quick buck, nothing new here.

                      It seems that lovericobra is a stalinist not a socialist, Todd. (he,she,it) is strongly against having people have their opinion heard and having opinions against gay marriage or other issues should result in the death penalty similar to the methods employed by stalinist russia.

                        Uncle Joe Stalin, believe it or not, was accused of being a socialist a time or two in his life.  In fact, the country blessed with his benevolent rule was actually named The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

                        But if Joe Stalin was opposed to gay marriages it was probably out of concern for what manner of creatures the offspring would be.  Until I began reading through this thread I'd never paused to consider the matter.

                        Once again an LP thread with a deadly case of thread-drift has resulted in a sea-change realization or two.  Maybe this deserves a thread of its own down in the gaming forum.

                            You gotta admit, anyone capable of taking money from Indian casinos who doesn't have a Southern European surname is probably worth eyeing with a certain level of trepidation. 

                            As is anyone capable of usurping the meaning of a perfectly usable, working class word in the English language, Gay Paree, gay blade, etc, and curling it around on itself until it retroactively accuses Parisians and all the gay blades of history and tradition of sleeping around with themselves also needs watching.  (I'm alluding to the other tributory channel of thread-drift here.... ie., Joe Stalin's alleged attempt to place them in a colony on the moon to keep them out of the bedrooms of jealous voters.)

                              I dunno, Todd.  I'm not sure my blog cuts a wide enough swath to handle this.  I think I just about ran out my string with the tick migration.
