“It is about time the Supreme Court recognises Gay Marriage and be as equal as straight ones. I hope they don't come back and say we will leave it up to the States. I hope they are with the times and not 100 years behind.”

“Why does something different have to be considered the same?”

“Like you I think the SC should say it’s the law of the land now, but I think they are going to come out with its state by state.”
“The Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. A married heterosexual couple's spouse will collect the other's social security check, when one dies. We gay couples can not. When a heterosexual couple depart by death, the living spouse does not have to pay an inheritance tax; unless it is in the millions. We gay couples do.
Does the Supreme Court of The United States of America not see this as unconstitutional? I do not understand their thinking knowledge, so far. And where is President Obama and his administrative support in the Supreme Court?
We gays will lose as always.”

“It makes no sense at all and while it doesn't affect me directly it deeply troubles me that people can be so callous and allow any segment of society to have their rights stripped. All those things you mention help promote stable families. That means one partner can stay home and take care of elders or children or other important matters and still get social security benefits based on the higher wage earner. Having some people free to be caretakers benefits everybody by keeping kids out of trouble, and elders safe and a myriad of other things. It's cutting off our nose to spite our face.”

“The President's interest were indeed in the courtroom today - the Solicitor General of the U.S. was there as a representative of the administration, not appealing the lower court's decision, but asking that the lower court's decision be affirmed by SCOTUS. In fact, he suggested that discrimination against gays in marriage laws is inherently unconstitutional, implying that, should they choose, they could overturn all state laws denying marriage equality to gay people.”

“Buck up, Harper. You only need 5 votes. The 4 votes from the liberal Justices are pretty much a given and it looks like Kennedy will give you the 5th vote.
And Obama sent his Solicitor General Donald Verilli to argue on your behalf.”

“The President filed amicus briefs for both cases stating that Prop 8 and DOMA should both be doomed.”
“2 PEOPLE OF THE SAME GENDER SHOULDN'T ELIMINATE OUR COMMITMENT TO GET MARRIED.
WHY SHOULD IT BE 2 STRAIGHT MARRIED PEOPLE ONLY?
IT'S A MATTER OF EQUAL FEDERAL BENEFITS. IF THE SUPREME COURT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THIS, I'M APPAULED AND ASHAMED. THE SUPREME COURT JUSTICES ASKED SOME ILL INFORMED QUESTIONS TODAY. IT'S SCARY THAT A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE CAN OR CAN NOT CHANGE MILLIONS OF GAY LIVES.”

“1. Marriage equality will not harm heterosexuals.
2. There is no legitimate reason to deny plural marriage.
3. That is our system of government. Please, at least try to know how our Constitutional Republic works.”
“Since the Vice Presidential trip for Vice President Biden, in Paris, France, from the United States included hosting a party, what do people expect? Things are not cheap and especially Paris.
I'm not sure if many people know about the Grove Park in Asheville. Many Presidents go there, eat , dance and dine in a vast aray of restaurants or room service there and its very expensive if you stay on the very secluded and take several elevators to Top Floor. Darn, I has thankful to find the lobby.
It was in the thousands 20 years ago and we didn't host a party and only stayed 2 nights and no party hosting!
With security in Paris, many people, the Paris hotel, food, parking, jets, fuel, limos and HOSTING A PARTY THERE WOULD COSTS A LOT OF MONEY.
I sure hope they had quite a HAPPY HOUR!! Bonjour VP Biden!!”
“It's not a state law, it's a Federal Law. That is going to be struck down in no time. Roe Vs. Wade is a Federal Law back in the 60's. It's not up to the State, but the Person. The Judge must think he is above the Supreme Court.”

“Although you come close to being correct on some points, your post is generally loaded with incorrect "facts"..
If you're going to assert facts, first learn what the actual facts are.”
Nicki Minaj's seat was empty when MILLIONS tuned in live for the first Top 10 hopefuls for the coveted American Idol Winner.
At this point, is anybody surprised at Nicki? They knew when she has hired what they were getting! Mariah and she should make conversation, at least for the sake of the viewers. Nicki won't look to her left, unlike Miriah Carey. WHERE IS/ARE THE PRODUCER(S)???
None of them are tough, although Randy Jackson has been about 3 times.
Nicki, be on time for live television! BTY-There is another way than the 405. Geez.”
