We’re not allowed to question judges. They’re educated men, and know everything there is to know.

See, in the judges eye it is the outcome not how you get to it. Based in law, naw, just reach into my dilusional memory banks and pick up some phrase I recall hearing in the past and if I cannot find one in our documents, there is probably something out there in some other country which will suffice.

This entire government needs to be replaced IMO. Start over. Artivle V anyone?

I just want to thank all my fellow Virginian Republicans(?) that opted to stay home because they didn’t like the haircuts of the R candidates or ‘wasted’ their vote on a Libertarian— that the ‘National Libertarians were saying WTF?’— and it turns out ‘backed’ by a Texas Liberal...

We lost the main seat by less than the ‘wasted’ votes and the AG by a handful (before the recount???)

Some saw McAwful may be HRC’s choice for VP (he was their ‘darling’ when wee willie was prez)but I believe us ‘R/Conservatives’ are going to pay dearly in the next couple of years....

For one thing, Herring shouldn’t be AG. Obenshain threw in the towel as do all Republicans. Two, this state voted “one man, one woman” by over 60%. Not that any of that matters.

How did all these faggot judges get on the bench anyway? Why aren’t the republicans in the senate blocking these immoral bastards?

Rulings such as this one should be counted as impeachable offenses and these judges should be removed.

Good God! I had the privilege of working for a federal judge. This opinion is written like a 5th grader’s book review. It’s really troubling.

It occurs to me that if elected officials can arbitrarily ignore the will of the people and refuse to enforce bans on pervert “marriage,” then the people are free to reject the declarations of those elected officials and can legitimately refuse to recognize homo “marriage.”

Thus begins the breakdown of the Rule of Law and the dissolution of the social contract.

I get sick to my stomach every time I pick up the Richmond Times-Dispatch. I hope McDonnell realizes what a mess he made. I can’t believe he was so broke he had to sell out the state for a few dollars.

The fact that the judge doesn't know the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence is sad, troublesome even.

But the REAL problem is with this: While ever-vigilant for the wisdom that can come from the voices of our voting public ...

In saying that the judge nullifies the democratic and representative process. The courts' job as she sees it is just to be 'vigilant' for the "wisdom that can come" from THE PEOPLE.

Basically, from her perspective, little things like VOTING aren't so much directive decisions as "suggestions" that the courts can discard at their whim. Should they deem them of insufficient "wisdom."

Instead of the R AG opposing this Herring loves it. They cant get any legislation through so they know only things decided by the courts will be what they get. Im pretty sure Herring did lose and the election was stolen. But it shouldnt have been that close.

Regardless, the equality point is not valid.
If you base the ruling on equality then a pedophile has an equal right to marry a child, one man an three women have an equal right to marry. A Father has an equal right to marry his daughter or his son and on an on. This is NOT about equal rights.

A friend today directed me to this post on youtube. It is kinda cool:

“Under article IV, section 1 of the US constitution, each state must give ‘full faith and credit’ to acts writs, warrants and judicial proceedings of every other state. If a couple is legally married in NY or NJ, they don’t have to get a license or re-marry upon moving to VA, NC or TX.

“The lefties like to cite that clause as protecting gay marriage, but I would like to counter that my concealed-carry permit (also a judicial proceeding via a circuit court judge) from VA should also be honored in NY, NJ, MA or MD. What is good for the goose...”

Why not thank Bill Bolling, who refused to endorse Ken and worked hard to disparage him. Or the Rep Mayor Virginia Beach who endorsed McAwful. Or Boyd Marcus, longtime Rep consultant including to George Allan, who endorsed McAwful and got a political plum job.

The real problem in VA is that we are trending blue. Immigration and domestic migration to VA by Northeast liberals have changed the state, especially NoVA. I have serious doubts the Rep will ever win a statewide election again.

That thought occurred to me many years ago.


Here is another one: We are not discriminating against “them”. Our laws are not designed for groups or even for married couples. They are designed for the individual citizen. And “they” have the exact same marriage rights you and I have. There is no discrimination here. The problem is that they want to do something that is not only not allowed, but it attempts to dramatically alter the meaning of plain english words.

Marriage is between a man and a woman. It always has been and always will be. Just as “gay” means happy. Only lunatics think “gay” refers to a man who enjoys pushing his penis into another man’s anus, or being the receiver of said penis.

And only lunatics call two men committing to doing that to each other until death “married”.

The law is very fair, whether you are straight or homosexual you can get married only under these circumstances:

1. Neither party is already married.
2. The parties are not blood relatives, e.g. brother and sister or mother and son.
3. The two parties are of opposite sexes.

And number three is the reason the institution exists in the first place. If mankind did not procreate via sex, there would be no such thing as marriage. Calling the joining of two humans that don’t meet the third condition “marriage” is ludicrous on the face of it. You might as well say a guy is married to his harley.

Which brings us to why this is so important to “them”: This is an attempt from the great deceiver himself to dilute a gift of God - and proof we really are in the end times as described in prophetic, biblical scripture.

The statement in the Declaration of Independence starts....”We hold these truths self-evident, that all men are created equal”.....so it first declares.... There are self-evident truths......and heterosexual sex is a biological requirement of life for mankind to continue. ....homosexual is not ...is a self-evident truth.....so all men are equal..any can couple/marry with a women to continue, to reproduce there line, and continue mankind..that is just natural law we are not in a position to change.....if a man or woman choose not marry that their business but same sex is not “marriage”

I didn’t want to start ‘naming names’ as I may have to include some R’s on this list who won’t (or say they won’t) vote for an R unless he is 100% with absolutely no wiggle room. <: <: <:
I believe the beginning of the end for us was Allen and the macacca(sp) BS, O North, yes the split this year between Bolling and Cucc, the ‘crime’ McDonald committed - yes, I believe he is guilty of poor judgement and gross stupidity for taking gifts like that “Legal or not”, just gives ‘them’ ammo to throw at you.

That lame RNC clown came on Chris Plante(?) just before the election and he said the RNC was backing Cucc to the hilt and Plante(I think it was his show)said you are giving money to NJ but not VA and that SOB virtually accused Plante(?) of lying and got ‘mad’ when he persisted. Think he finally ended up saying Christie needed it more than VA....

Of course when us ‘Conservatives’ started telling the R’s we would financially support individuals NOT the hand picked puppets the GOPe designated for us, kind of sunk the Conservative and TEA Party members...

A point I make periodically is that there is no “right” to marriage.

Marriage has historically been an obligation undertaken by two people prior to engaging in activities that might reasonably be expected to lead to children; and if not before, then shortly thereafter.

The purpose being to maximize the likelihood that said children mature to become self-sufficient human beings.

Since no homosexual activity can produce children, the concept of homosexual “marriage” is moot.

And, as you mentioned, there are lots of limitations on heterosexual marriage. Only one is that it be heterosexual.

Their side claims that “Any two people who love each other should be allowed to marry”. I love my mother, she loves me. Should we be allowed to marry? If not, why not. About there, their heads start to explode.

Let me see, when the people vote for the something the court disagrees with, it is the courts responsibility to protect the voters from themselves.

When the voters vote in officials who overide the will of the people, it is not the responsibility of the court to save them from themselves.

So elections have consequences only when the courts approve of the consequences. Got it.

VA is a purple state trending blue primarily due to changing demographics. NoVA now has more than enough votes to put the Dems on top in any statewide election. When Kerry won Fairfax County in 2004, the first time a Dem did that since 1964, the game was over. In 1990 15% of Fairfax County was foreign-born; today it is 30%. In 1990 whites were 81% and now they are 63%. The Dems have the numbers. If they get the same kind of turnout as the GOP, they win every time.
