You and Dick Cheney agree. You may now kill yourself.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

So then problem is just a word then. I get it! It's pretend time again ! This time we can pretend if we call an apple something other than an apple, it won't be an apple anymore! It will be a big yellow talking bird! My my. look at what our apple is doing!

I'm sure card carrying members of the Anal Cock Licker's Union will see to it that gay marriage is legal in all 50 states.

I'd like to direct everyone's attention to how far ahead of the game I was in 2006.

I'll dumb this down for you.

For 5k years the definition of marriage has meant one man and one woman. The gay lifestyle community cannot pervert it or change it in any manner. It does not belong to them and it does not exclude them. They have every right to enter into a marriage contract if they abide by the rules that have been in effect for 5k years.

Go invent your own. It's not yours, you can't have it, go away.

Still have a closed mind?
