Text of decision here.
and that would mean they would have to pay more in taxes, right? I’m still single but I’ve always heard of the marriage penalty that slams people.
Isn’t it ironic, they are clammering for bennies that are broke, i.e. SSI, Medicare, Medicade etc etc etc. It is like being the king of wishful thinking. These programs need re-engineering and or privatization or insert buzzword here, but are they getting an empty bowl in the long run?
These programs will empty the bowl for all of us because our income and welfare is measured in the dollars we earn. The same dollars they will print until worthless because they will not prioritize, cap, and budget these welfare programs that are paid out in dollars the government does not possess.
America needs to wake up and understand our fate is interwoven with the dollar and the dollar is interwoven with government debt, spending, and quantitative easing that = welfare for the banks and stock market.
And which state requires consummation for a legal marriage to exist? Because of physical disabilities, not every heterosexual marriage can be consummated. And those marriages are very valid!
As long as you do not proclaim Jesus Christ as your Savior. Christianity it the real target here. Not heterosexuals. We (as heterosexuals) just became collateral damage in the war against Christianity
>>for the sins of my countrymen<<
These are not your countrymen, they are enemies to this country.
I heard the lower court ruling on Prop 8 would stand. WHAT WAS THE LOWER COURT RULING?
I can’t think to save my life today...
Not no jurisdiction - no standing. Decision just came out.
maybe a little of this, before all that.
Boy I hate to sound like a magic elixir salesmen, but Steve Forbes was right with the Flat Tax ( and ergo Flat Tax vs. Fair on the House floor is fine with me ).
My chance run in with the Hawaiian guy and this case from Canada and the inheritance screams for a new tax code, Inheritance taxes were also an issue for the Hawaiian dude if my memory is correct..
Dissent - Thomas, Alito, Kennedy, Sotamayor
Basically tossed the case for lack of standing, I guess the good news is their is no national right to gay marriage as some feared, or even forcing gay marriage on the 9 states with civil unions. Only applies to California.
But Fedgov says it’s OK now ;)
Tea, I guess you’re right. I am kinda attached to the whole hetro thing anyway.
Prop 8 was struck down. To be clear, the lower court ruling stands only with regard to California, not other states that define marriage as one man-one woman.
No, if they can file jointly instead of separately, it would in most cases be a tax savings at the expense of the American people, who seem to know nothing much at all from their poor-quality education.
Yes and you have friends getting “married”, straight people who had no desire to be married, getting “married” to they can cheat on taxes. Kennedy has got to be the dumbest SOB that ever walked the face of the earth. What a joke this country has became.
I guess when Obama said he was “disappointed” about the voting law ruling, that was code to his sycophants on the High Court that their bonuses might be in jeopardy if they didn’t shape up.
Why am I in this basket, and why is it so hot in here?
“Now, how many fake marriages will be done just to avoid INCOME TAXES?.....................”
99%. Like I just said Kennedy is moron.
We don’t deserve forgiveness and shouldn’t expect any.
And as usual they won because the damn GOP refused to stand up for traditional America.
Eventually even the most blinded sycophant has to see it.
