Yeah, thats homophobia for ya.
He's never run a small business let alone a city or a state. Plus he was only in the Senate for a few months before deciding he could take on the job of Pres. Mind you that this was just months after he said he wasn't qualified to do the job.
oh please. thats the most uninformed crap about obama. youre probably one of those who shouted that obama is a terrorist at a mccain rally. obama knew he had to get into politics and indeed become president of the united states when he realized being a community organizer does not change society. read up on the man before you call him names.
He'll need a magic wand to do even half of what he has promised.
Edit: nin, I don't think we have ever had a President as radical as Obama. So it will be very interesting to see what happens over the course of this four year term.
Now he has to do something over the next four years.
Beyond that, getting into the religious aspect of it, is up to the respective churches. eg: if you belong to a church and need their approval to be married, the state should issue the union license.
On the other side of the coin, who cares what other people do with their lives, it doesn't affect you. "I disagree with gays marrying" doesn't cut it, sorry. That's just a more politically correct way of saying "I don't like fags."
Marriage is a contract between two people. It is absurd that the state should not recognise such a contract simply on the basis of both parties being of the same gender.
It doesn't affect me or indeed any other 3rd party in any way, so I don't see how we have any cause to restrict their rights below that of ours.
The Roseville couple had refused to sign the state's new marriage license forms which had replaced the words "bride" and "groom" with "Party A" and "Party B." Because of this, their marriage was not recognized by the state. The two sued.
On Monday, California state officials, saying they had heard from residents all over the state who want to be identified as "bride" and "groom" on their marriage license, said the state forms will be changed. Again.
That's why so many of us have been pushing for Prop 8 - to simply reinstate what we've already decided.
Exactly why, in my mind, we should have legalized unions that afford the same rights and benefits to homosexual couple as to a heterosexual couple
In California where domestic partnership has been available to same-sex couples since 2000, a wholesale revision of the law in 2005 has made it, like the New Jersey civil union law, equivalent to marriage in nearly every respect at the state level, though neither is recognized by the federal government.
Why you gotta be hatin' on other folks' love, man?
Is prop 11 for high-speed rail? God I hope so. I never understood why California doesn't have high-speed rail. Seems so perfect for this big state.
So voting for a party that really doesn't represent you except in name only means you have to stay with them no matter what?
She has more experience running a government than Obama, so I can't get too hung up on that, even if the left ignores that ugly little fact.
Obama represents something long overdue in Washington, and something the vast majority of people on all sides of the spectrum want... real change.
I'm hoping McCain wins
I'm hoping McCain wins but if Obama wins I won't hate. There's been too much hate for the last eight years. I think it's time to end it and come together.
Yup, the republicans are going with the lowest common denominator, she is in for no other reason then she is a woman, absolutly no credentials whatsoever and is proving that every single time she opens her mouth.
Barack Obama contends that he is more experienced in executive matters than Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin because he has managed his presidential campaign for the past 18 months.
Speaking on a cable news channel Monday night, the Democratic presidential nominee said he is better prepared to handle a disaster like Hurricane Gustav because of his pursuit of the White House.
"Well, my understanding is that Governor Palin's town of Wasilla has, I think, 50 employees. We've got 2,500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe $12 million a year. You know, we have a budget of about three times that just for the month. So I think that our ability to manage large systems and to execute I think has been made clear over the last couple of years," Obama said.
John McCain's spokesman called the suggestion "laughable."
"For Barack Obama to argue that he's experienced enough to be president because he's running for president is desperate circular logic and its laughable. It is a testament to Barack Obama's inexperience and failing qualifications that he would stoop to passing off his candidacy as comparable to Governor Sarah Palin's executive experience managing a budget of over $10 billion and more than 24,000 employees," said spokesman Tucker Bounds.
Republican National Committee Victory 2008 Chairwoman Carly Fiorina also blasted the Democratic campaign.
"I am appalled by the Obama campaign's attempts to belittle Governor Sarah Palin’s experience. The facts are that Sarah Palin has made more executive decisions as a mayor and governor than Barack Obama has made in his life," Fiorina said.
That's something I was going to bring up, but forgot: When I went to vote, I didn't have to present any form of ID. I filled out my name, address, and DOB, they looked it up on the computer, and gave me a ballot.
I had my driver's license out, and they never bothered to ask for it...
I early voted last Friday.
overt political leanings, a complete lack of character, a craptastic engine and the absence of acted cutscenes
