Poll is here about half way down on the right.

Where does it stop?

How about my blood relatives? What about my most special best friend? How about my domestic help? (not that I can afford domestic help)

Homosexuals in Milwaukee County poll ping.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin’, if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)

I’m handling Dynachrome’s FReep a Poll pings until he returns. Errors and omissions during that time are solely my fault and should cease upon his return.

It rarely is, especially when it should be.

Gerbils probably already have zero-deductible plans in San Fransciko.

“No Effing way” wasn’t an option either.

If marriage isn’t defined by THE definition,
it has NO definition.

I believe this is actually the goal.

Homosexuality aside, that is a huge problem with these benefits. They are simply not even handed:

1.) A gay/lesbian can get benefits for his/her live-in boyfriend/girlfriend but a straight, unmarried couple cannot get benefits for their live-in boyfriend/girlfriend.

2.) When a married couple getting benefits splits, one spouse loses half of his/her stuff to the other spouse. When a gay couple splits, they lose nothing.

Maybe these "domestic partnerships" should be open to all as strictly financial arrangements.

You live with your brother?

Fine. Your brother is entitled to benefits.

Your brother moves out?

Fine. Your brother's benefits stop and your brother is entitled to leave with half of your stuff in a U-Haul van.

Same for parents — if you live with your Mom, why can’t you get benefits for her (irrespective of your sex)? Do you need to submit photos of sexual activity to prove “partnership?”

Not that it relevant to the topic, but I saw a poll about Summerfest... I spent a summer in downtown Milwaukee and Summerfest was really the coolest thing ever.

Voted.

Do any of these leftist goons realize that it's against the WI Constitution's marriage amendment, passed by a solid majority of Wisconsinite voters?

Here in Portland Oregon, the city council just voted to pay for sex change operations for city workers - as well as all the medications and follow-up surgeries.
