Not shocking. Kennedy is a libertarian, and DOMA infringes on states’ rights in his view. I’m just glad it wasn’t legalized nationwide, THAT would’ve been messy.

Ergo the Federal Govt cannot deny "equal protection" 2nd Amendment Rights of gun owners regardless of where your reside or what type of gun you own.

Excellent!

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?

BTW, I had a chance meeting w/ one of the Hawaiian Pro-Gay Marriage top advocates in the late 1990's and I was convinced then it was all about the bennies....

disgustingly funny.

I remember when we only feared losing all our jobs overseas; and when we laughed at the idea that queers would want to "marry" (they began conditioning us to that in the 9th grade in Massachusetts).

DOMA was enacted to prevent the State of Hawaii from forcing Same Sex marriage on the whole country through the 4th article of the Constitution.

DOMA forced same sex marriage advocates to go state by state, which is far more appropriate, especially if passed through the legislature instead of through the courts, as it was in MA and IA.

And language in their decision points to a non-decision in the Prop 8 case.

Not a big surprise really.

Personally I would ditch the federal definition of marriage (leave it up to the church) and cut the marriage related federal benefits down to a handful from some 1500.

Remove the tax incentives with the FairTax, get the government out of paying for health care, end retirement Ponzi schemes, close government schools and there really isn’t much left to fight about.

Make that PART of DOMA. An important part, granted, but theoretically, states can still refuse to recognize this fake contrivance.

Natural consequence to redefining marriage.

Now society must do what was done thousands of years ago: define a category to facilitate procreation.

I would argue that there are no legally married same sex couples, since such a union can’t be consummated due to the biology required.

It appears that they punted on prop 8 (ruled the group bringing the case didn’t have standing). So no nationwide gay marriage that the liberals were hoping for. So if your state bans gay marriage, nothing will change.

I'm ready to do that now, I haven't gotten any in... well, a long time. It's not fair! Pass a law to equalize sex for everyone. Make it a lottery so every once in a while you draw a supermodel.

What a degenerate cesspool America has become. Throughout the years, I always took the stand that I would have given my life fighting for my country. Not this faggotized sewer of Homo-America. It’s not worth lifting a finger to preserve.
