“And nothing ever will be perfectly solved; however, there is a faction in our society who has declared it their job to decide whose cause to champion and I'm not championing the cause of gay marriage. It sounds ridiculous to me.”

“Then why didn't you just say the "SC". You are so full of yourself. And I'm not certain that you have the standing to question my comprehension on any subject.”

“Tell me all you know about the farmers in Southern California. If you can't in the next five minutes, then you have publicly declared your ignorance.”

“I grew up on a ranch in northern California. If you are talking about water, rights and the Dracula canal, what I know would take more than five minutes.

Plus, I didn't say that I agreed with everything Nancy Pelosi has ever done; I said she was, and is, good at her job. She is.”

“Protection is the key word. Depends on your interpretation of protection. My beliefs and desires are never brought up before the Supreme Court. Insults to me are never addressed by the federal government. And are you really trying to tell me that this is still not a man's world? Address that. But let's bend over backwards for someone's sexual preference so they can pay fewer taxes. That's the whole thing.”

Robert Lohman on Jun 26, 2013 at 19:24:34

“Are men given certain benefits in American society? I think it would be foolish to deny that those benefits exist. However our Constitution does not allow these to be part of the law. Addressing problems in equal protection under the law for one group does not mean they should not be addressed for others or that everything is perfect. I'm pretty certain I did not indicate that everything was perfectly solved.”

“We were discussing an article on a ruling of the SC. Basic government taught me that the SC is one of three branches of the federal government. I'm not certain you have the standing to question my comprehension on this subject.”

“I would never agree with Nancy Pelosi. The fact that anyone does is frightening. Her response is indicative of her beliefs on governing. If our elected officials 'don't care', who does?”

EducatedWoman on Jun 27, 2013 at 16:58:18

“Her response, "Who cares?" clearly meant, "Who cares what Michele Bachmann thinks" about federalism, equal protection, due process, and the constitutional requirement of standing and actual case or controversy as the basis of a federal court's jurisdiction.”

joeyfoto on Jun 26, 2013 at 15:48:28

“I'll bet you know virtually nothing of Nancy Pelosi's career. She is a great representative for her district and was one of the most effective speakers in House history.

If you don't like what she stands for, that's your business, but the only way you can say she's not good at her job is to publically declare your ignorance.”

“If the federal government can't define marriage then why should they have the power to deny or uphold legislation on it. Without comprehension on what a true conservative is you don't have the understanding to comment on what they do or don't find important.”

Robert Lohman on Jun 26, 2013 at 15:50:25

“When you question my comprehesion I am left asking if you understand how the Supreme Court works. It does not make law. It simply rules on the constitutionality of the laws that are created and the cases presented before it. The entire basis of the Supreme Court is to hold the power to deny or uphold legislation presented before it as constitutional or not. It is exactly what it is there for.”

Robert Lohman on Jun 26, 2013 at 15:39:24

“Because the 14th Amendment gives the power to the federal government to assure that all citizens are given equal protection under the law. Thus a law may not be enacted that denies rights to one group of citizens while allowing that same right to another. We may define marriage as between two people but because our Constitution disallows bias based on sex we cannot limit that right based on the sex of the participants any more than we could based on the ethnic background of those involved.”

“Figured out yet that neither side is very respectful? I'm weary of liberals not taking responsibility for the party they back and the same goes for conservatives. We need to be Americans, not party supporters. What tomk1212 wrote could be said of the right. When there's a scandal in either party, the first thing that party does is try to change the subject. Liberals have it easier due to a liberal media. If you don't recognize the truth in what I've written then you have your head in the sand.”

“There is no "liberal media"; that's the theme that's been pounded into your head by the right wing.

There are just as many conservative newspapers, radio stations, and TV stations that lean right as lean left.”

“A voice of reason. Thank you so much for your comment and for stating some facts. Heard in the media the other day that the manufacture of fertilizer is primarily for use in agricultural and for making bombs. Really? That's like saying the manufacture of spray paint is primarily for use in painting small areas and huffing. If you are from that area or have ties to those who live there, I am so sorry for any loss you have incurred. Our area has been sending supplies that way. Hope they will be of some help.”

“Listen to yourself. Perverts are just plain perverts whether they use the Catholic church, any other church, the public school system, the private school system, child care businesses, foster homes, parental homes, family members, the movie industry and the list goes on and on, in order to violate children. As a matter of fact, Bill Maher's language is perverted. Get this straight, if you or a child of yours or even someone you know has been abused then I am sorry for that atrocity. Bill's comments are not rectifying those horrific acts perpetrated on children by using the language he does and using their pain as a vehicle to spread propaganda.”

“I love children and am amazed at some of the comments they make. Certainly not all of the time but most of the time, they are parroting their parents or another adult figure. If a child loves their parent, then they would defend them; desire what makes them happy. I applaud this child for that. Sweet child. Still.....a child. As adults, we appreciate the love and support shown to us by our parents but understand that our parents, being human, made mistakes or were not always right. At the time of our raising, their opinions and lifestyle were what we knew. I had the best parents you could hope for but as an adult, I haven't always agreed with them and my grown children don't always agree with me. Unfortunately, we have a liberal government and a liberal media that would use a child to promote their agenda. You make think I am being judgemental but, truthfully, I would protect my 12 yo child or grandchild from that type of exposure and scrutiny.”
