View Full Version : Gay Marriage

Texas is voting on a "gay marriage ban" constitutional amendment today.

It's been said that most people who are against gay marriage are against the "marriage" part because "marriage" implies some religious meaning. (But what about the folks who are married via a judge rather than a clergyman? Isn't that still a marriage?) HOWEVER, the wording on the Texas ballot, if passed, would outlaw gay civil unions, not just gay marriage:

"The constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state consists only of the union of one man and one woman and prohibiting this state or a political subdivision of this state from creating or recognizing any legal status identical or similar to marriage."

My sister and her boyfriend have written up what looks like hundreds of pages of legal crap that allows this one to act for that one, etc. - paperwork that isn't needed if you're married so I don't know why they don't just get married - so does all of that become unrecognized by the state if this passes?

If it fails by one vote, you can blame me. I went north to vote this morning at the volunteer fire department which was the last place I voted, and they weren't voting there, so I went west to the main voting place, and after waiting in line, they said I had to go to a different place 10 miles to the east. I really had to get to work, so I couldn't take the extra who knows how long to drive back to find a place I've never been with iffy directions at best after already taking the extra 25 minutes or so going to the wrong place and waiting in line at the other wrong place... What is this, Florida?

Real men don't ask for directions. We either know where we're going, find ourselves or we don't go (or buy a GPS). The reason Flarda's wacky is cause it's fulla Uhaul Yankees! /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Chopstick this Northern Yankee wishes when the UHaulers go South they sign up for Florida's Medicade,Medicare and get off ours. If they couldn't use ours you would see them leaving in Droves. Wagon Train North.####

<font color="blue">Dick,

If you want 'em back, just get some legislation going to get them off your medicare and we'll help ship them back.

We'd hate to lose them but, what the heck, we all have to make sacrifices. </font color>

Being from Canada I'm kinda curious. What are U-Haulers? Some sort of weird cult that live in trucks?

U-haulers are tyically people who load their possessions in a U-Haul brand rental truck and invade another area. Some might consider them latter day carpertbaggers (a name given to northerners who came to the south during reconstruction to take advantage of everyone).

There is an old saying in the South (that I am much too politically correct to ascribe to) that says, "The only thing a Southerner fears is a __________with a knife, a ________with a gun and a Yankee with a U-Haul."

only fears a woman with a gun or a Hillary in the White House......

They're a migratory group, like the old gypsies. They follow the sun, and end up in warm states like Alabama, for the winter. everything they own, including the K-Mart Steve Mizerak cue, can be packed into a Uhaul, trailor

I think mounting geese is something you should ask one of those Uhaulers you were talking about. If you really want to know that is. I don't. /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

LOL, I expect that by the time we get the idiot out of the White House, the U-hauler population will have grown considerable, that is if they can get gas. As for carpetbaggers, that's a pretty good description of Halliburton these days.

Gayle in Md....I think it was mostly heterosexual men who had intercourse with sheep....Hmmmmmm /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

The population of Flarda is 12% native population, a zillion guys frod LonGiland, A smattering of Porda Recans which are not from Puerto Rico, they are from New Jersey. I've never have been able ro figure that one out cause Puerto Rico is closer. Now the Flarda New Jersey Porda Ricans are a species all to them selves. They talk fast and loud and they're all nuts. Every last one of them. They're fun to party with though.

There is also a bunch of Vietnamize here. If you want to see em just take a magic marker, write karaoke on it and tape it to the door on any bar and the place will be full of em in an hour. They go nuts for it. I wish catchin fish was that easy.

And last are two Tennessee rednecks from South Memphis. We don't really care what these other folks do. We just want to be able to get to our favorite fishin hole without too much trouble.

Gayle, it is strange that we are on the same wave length, this must be what they mean by Intelligent Design. It saves me posting because you have already posted my thoughts.####

Wait a minute Deeman, your previous posts would lead me to believe you're out in the middle of the boonies where you're lucky to see people leave alone having a snowbird problem. What do you care if they come or go? /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Ain't it the truth honey!!! We have got to get together before one of us dies!!! Whenever I give my verbal list of things I must do before I die, "Gotta meet Dick Leonard" is on the top of my list.

Your posts save me too, LOL.
