you keep parroting state courts. meanwhile, federal courts are smacking your arguments down .Thats why I support all my views with court precedent while you and the others offer in response your personal opinions full of emotion and hormones
it really sucks to be a birther
Henry George's theories were based on land ownership and how far a business was from a public resource like a mill or waterway. The man lived and died a decade before the model T was produced much less modern transportation and communication. Not only did Henry George never hear of the Internet, he barely lived long enough to see the electric light. Applying the theories of Henry George to modern nations is about as risky as letting the most brilliant caveman design your next airport.
Society need not recognize every narcissistic want and desire in order to have 'equality' in fact, a society needs to discriminate in certain areas in order to be a healthy society in the first place. Once a society starts to break down the traditional accepted morality it is on the road to destruction.
Energy goes where intention flows.
I will give you this. The anti-gay rights movement certainly has some creative ways of saying "gays are icky, eeewww" without actually having to directly say it, but you're preaching to the choir, because the only people buying those arguments are the people who already think "gays are icky, eeeewwww".

"The whole "us verses them/right verses left" mentality is childish; leave that crap in the sporting arena and understand that political discussions are no place for torrid, angry argument, rather rational dialogue whereby we may deepen and hone our own beliefs. Anyone declaring "liberalism" or "conservatism" as finite terms distinguishing absolute morality is grossly misguided and closed minded. They're just words; and we're just people. Political positions aren't sports teams." - TitoSparks

Me: "When the people who teach our children, protect us from fires and criminals, save our lives when we're injured, and defend us with their very lives make less in a year than a guy who throws a ball for a living makes in an hour, there is something truly (*)(*)(*)(*)ed up with our country."
Silly to reward behavior with tax breaks and governmental entitlements because it causes no harm to society. The idea is to encourage behavior that is beneficial to society. Encouraging fathers and mothers to join together to provide and care for their children, BECAUSE the alternative of one or none of them doing so frequently leads to the need for government assistance to provide and care for that child.
