    "At this point, what difference does it make?"

     

    Everything will be fine after SCOTUS legalizes gay marriage, which is evidently the most important issue facing the country.

    I do not think that is the most important issue.
    since >80% of the voters that is <30 supports gay marriage it is just a matter of time it will be legal.
    That is why I do not consider it to be that important (unless you are one that will be affected personally)
    People have waited for decades already and even a delay of a few more years is not that critical

    not that critical unless it is your loved-one who ends up in the hospital and you dont have any rights.

    Nothing a power of attorney, a living will and last testament can't remedy. It's spousal benefits that can't be duplicated right now.

    Just give it time, the SCOTUS is working on it. It will be fixed.

    Guess maybe those payroll tax and healthcare premium increases weren't insignificant after all?

    I haven't seen confidence change in my part of the world. My sales are holding tight. As far as moral decay, things are looking up!

    Moral decay like high divorce rates and unplanned pregnancies in the conservative states?

    I wonder why 'Organized Region' has not really stood up and spoken up vehemently against this latest farce of liberal gay-marriage p o s..

     

    Oh well, they are still muffed up hiding behind their tax exempt status and do not want to upset the Apple Cart.

     

    I understand.

    MI, whether I'm sad or not is irrelevant here.

     

    Do as the Bible says. The Bible is always right. The Bible is the Doctrine and the one and only. Deviate from the Bible gets you into deep hot water.

     

    A guy like King James I was smart, brought out the 'Rack'; in a matter of hours he's got the names of all the co-conspirators. Bible James is a screaming buy!

    I remember reading about a couple town being destroyed where such things were common. History repeats. I'm just saying. I guess this doesn't have much to do about Consumer Confidence?

    We need to go back to Old Testament laws where a husband could sell his wife to pay back loans.

    True, good old Slavery was invented from time in Memorial, in the earliest beginning time of documented human history, during the Abraham and Sara era, where Ismail was born out of a slave girl from Egypt.

     

    There you go, we have the Arabs and Islam!

    A dollar run is inevitable as the Euro keeps going from manufactured crisis to manufactured crisis.
