  • El Paso venue won't allow same-sex marriage ceremonies

    "How tolerant of this “couple”. Tattle to the media about the mean bullies who refuse to be bullied."

    That's exactly how I see it. Boo-hoo, I can't get a wedding cake; and boo-hoo someone else is discriminating against me because of their religion; or boo-hoo I cant' get every f*cking thing I think I deserve because I like to do men in the rear.

    There is going to be major blow-back (pun intended) now they got their USSC decision. I've read that (2) small businesses are shutting down rather than forfeit their beliefs or be sued because of discrimination against the fudge-packers.

    I once accepted what they wanted to do behind close doors. Now that they are pushing their shit on me, I'm gonna tell everyone I meet to just back the f*ck off and get out my face. They want to bring hate charges against me for saying so, I'm prepared.

    Tolerance is one thing; demanding acceptance is another. I almost puked when I saw the White House lit up with their rainbow colors. I'm sick of these queers. Why do they define themselves by their sexual preference? I define myself by my values, honor, and character...and not by who I want to sleep with.

    Their pettiness and the pitiful need for self-esteem and total acceptance is getting old. Watch, there is going to be unintended consequences from their actions and the USSC ruling. Mark my words.

    "Do you really think that Mr. Obama would allow the military to defend the Philippines from China?"

    Of course not. Did I imply such above? Obama will not defend any of our Allies if push came to shove. We can talk about all the reasons he is an appeaser all day, but bottom line, he is a pussy and the World knows it. Obambi has unilaterally reversed the respect and strength of American policy around the World. NO ONE trusts him, but Iran is more than happy to work with that. Pfft!

    That is just damn ass stupid. While I don't agree with the many privileges afforded to criminals in so many penal systems, commonsense says let them have some vice to distract them and occupy their time besides "sticking" each other. This is just idiotic.

    Good. Keep it "impossible". Continue to be the strong people you have been, even back when Japan was killing you.

    That said, with China growing and threatening, bet a lot of you wish we were still stationed in Subic Bay and Clark Air Force Base. Some of the most hard-working sailors in my early years were Filipino, not to mention just being good friends.

    But then, maybe I'm jaded by all the clubs along Magsaysay and the beautiful hostesses there. Sometimes wonder what happened to them when the Philippines kicked us out. Big mistake as they're now learning.

    I would think so if using logic. However, it was obvious to any who reads the Constitution and it's founders INTENT (Federalist, anti-Federalist, publications, debates, diaries, personal letters, et al) didn't foresee the USSC to parse, spin, and judicate from the bench. While I can understand the phrase, "...equal protection of the laws...", marriage has always been a privilege and not a right.

    I knew the Supremes would use the 14th to sanction gay marriage. What I am most dismayed about is how they changed simple wording in SCOBAMACARE, twice. Clearly written language the said "penalty" not tax, and now "establishment of State" that clearly did not mean the Big Brother State regarding subsidies has flushed us further down the ash-heap of history.

    Even a main consultant for the writing of Obamacare, Gruber, said it meant the States with exchanges regarding subsidies. How the vote was 6-3, I can only guess as so many do.

    Here you go:

    Let every man/woman married couple sign a post-nuptial agreement regarding assets and taxes and get a divorce to make the word marriage meaningless. Then the above renew their wedding vows/commitment in front of whoever will witness. Why the States were ever given the power to "license" marriage is questionable to me.

    I married my wife because it was part of her family's old time traditions, values, and expectations. She was surprised when I proposed because we both agree we loved and respected and liked each other enough to spend our lives together without the permission of any government.

    Let the gays now own the term marriage. If my suggestion were to go large scale, bet the gays would find marriage not as sacrosanct and start to wonder why they bothered. Of course, I'm dreaming, but still we need a new term for heterosexual life commitments.

    Co-commitment (CC)
    Hetero-partners (HP)
    Life Partners (LP)
    Ties That Bind (TTB)
    Man And Woman Partner (MAWP)...har!
    Heart Association of Heter-sexuals (HAT)...killing myself here

    C'mon Freepers, give us some short simple wording that works with an abbreviation. Let's show these demanding LBGT's we don't need their "marriage" word - we now have our own.

    Thank you for spelling it out to these no-nothings. However, I believe there is a Christian bike club and some Viet Nam clubs that are allowed to wear the MC, but no bottom rocker. Could be wrong. I'll Google

    ""MC" stands for "Motorcycle Club". You are nuts. First you assert that 1% (okay, some bad boys in that crowd), then the number "13", now "MC", what's next? DILLIGAF? FTW? "69"?"

    You really have no idea what you're talking about.
    1. A 1% patch ALWAYS indicates an outlaw biker. They are ALL "bad boys". What do you think 1% means? One percent of "bad boys"?
    2. Anyone who wears the "MC" on their colors must be sanctioned by one outlaw club or another. Didn't used to, but does now. Do some research on both patches, including bottom "rocker" patches. BTW, you do know what the 1%ers are into nowadays? No, Google is your friend.

    "Too funny. Son; I know more about bikers and club life than you ever will. This isn’t about that. This about what happened that day, why 27 people were shot, and why 177 were arrested with an out of this world bail amount. Unless something changed; Texas is still part of America and is bound by the same Constitution the rest of the country is. The fact that you think it’s ok for cops to wade into a situation knowing nothing about it with guns blazing tells me you are likely a jack booted thug and future enemy of American citizens. You have zero room to criticize any bikers."

    Apparently, you didn't read my posts correctly or maybe they were on another thread. I've been a hill-climber since 15 (1965) and an Indian/Harley street rider since 19 (1969) until I joined the Navy in 1975. After 11 years Navy I started riding again and became a member of the Patriot Guard Riders. I was also a HOG member. I AM NOT CRITICIZING ALL BIKERS. I'm criticizing the 1%ers.

    I also know the origins of the Hells Angels, Galloping Goose, Booze Fighters, Iron Horsemen and such. I was at the 50th anniversary (1997) of the so-called biker take-over in Hollister in 1947. Were you? Do you know who Wet Willy is? No Googling.

    "Jack-booted thug"? Really? My bona fides show I'm the biggest supporter of our Constitution, liberty, and rights (VetsCor founder and Chairman). And yes, I have the experience to criticize 1%er outlaw bikers having associated with the Satan Slaves, Straight Satans, and Gypsy Nomads in my youth in Los Angeles. I learned quickly they weren't for me.

    I've also said that the LEO's were wrong to arrest so many who weren't involved, as the facts are now. You want to defend the 1% criminals, fine. I support the 99% bikers who just want to ride and cause no problems during the many biker events I've enjoyed for years (Sturgis, Lauglin, Run For The Wall, etc.).

    Also, I used to hang at a biker dive called Cook's Corner (historical site) in Orange County. THE only time there was a biker incident was when the Vagos showed up. They beat the living crap out of some poor bicyclist. BTW, what color is their patch? Again, no Googling since you know so much.

    I'm not your (Son), so kiss my 65 year old experienced rear. Was going to change that sentence, but it looks funny.

    A Navy Vet to P-Marlowe
    "The laws for issuing marriage licenses have just been overturned by the Supreme Court. This means that there is no statutory basis for issuing ANY marriage license to anyone. The State Legislature would have to re-write the marriage license laws to conform to this decision. If they don’t they the state has no right to issue a marriage license to anyone. When people complain then they can take their case to the Supreme Court. In essence the SCOTUS has made their decision. Let THEM enforce it!

    I've read posts suggesting the Individual States (for John Roberts clarity) should just nullify the USSC decision. However, you actually bring up a legal issue that is problematic to States' laws and constitutions, providing such stipulate that marriage is between and man and woman. It will be interesting to see how the States handle this.

    "Double lightning bolt".

    It's actually a slanted SS Gestapo logo that many hard-core outlaw bikers wear along with the Iron Cross and Swastika.

    It's getting late and I'm an old guy and getting tired, but still can't believe some are defending the 1%er's (outlaw) right to free expression/assembly. They should all go the way of the Mafia. Many do according to the History Channel. Some still want to ignore those under-cover agents busting the gawd-awful murderous bikers. Guess I should leave them in their mis-placed innocence.

    After all, I'm an anti-1st Amendment person according to their twisted beliefs. Take care and thank you for recognizing who are the bad guys.

    I'm just flabbergasted at you and others who are trying make this a 1st Amendment issue for the protection of criminal organizations. We are ALL talking about murdering thugs here. What part of the word "murder" don't you get? It's been proven time and time and time again how these 1%ers operate and been convicted of such crimes, not to mention extortion, heroin-running, etc. You actually believe the president of the Bandidos? Wow!

    How many times do I have to say I've had close contact with these A-holes through the years? Have you? Tell me so and which club in what years and region. If not, you have no damn clue how bad they are. You'd all be wise to STFU from here out.

    " What oath is forever? May I suggest that you take some time to think about what unrestrained and arbitrary authority might look like? Please consider how the trampling of the Constitution - even to "get at" the vilest is a very dangerous and ominous precedent."

    Let me elaborate further. You're talking apples and oranges. While I didn't mention States' or local rights, you should have known my intent. You extrapolate to the extreme with your "unrestrained and arbitrary authority" regarding 1%er bikers.

    The 9th and 10th Amendments gives authority to the States in all state and local criminal matters. Every State in the Union has their own Constitution and Codes. The outlaw gangs come under State authority unless a Fedgov matter like kidnapping. Not sure that should be federal either. Way to many over-zealous agencies.

    You should do some research on my handle and posts. I've always been a States rights advocate first. Research VetsCor and then tell me I'm "arbitrary" and "trampling" the Constitution. Hell, I Chaired an organization for restoration of our Constitution. You can't be more wrong. Sheesh, send a message to JimRob and ask him about my bona-fides.

    "You FORGOT to include that Bandido/Texas CoCI quote: “We do not break the law as a whole; we do not encourage it,” Graves responded. “You do not have to be a criminal to be a Bandido. We will not take criminals if we know they’re criminals. We don’t want that reputation.”"

    Sad that you would actually believe that statement. After all, an outlaw biker leader wouldn't lie. And Obama said, "You can keep your Doctor". Did you buy that? Do you believe everything said by a leader of an organization? I don't. I watch actions and 1%ers are murderous thugs as proven by numerous convictions via clandestine videos and recordings. Why are you attempting to give them ANY credit?

    "Double lightning bolt"

    Yup, that's one. I thing the "Filthy Few" have another patch depending on organization or chapter. Could be wrong. Guess I should Google.

    I can't believe what I'm reading on this conservative law-and-order forum. YOU are a troll for not giving the benefit of doubt to an outlaw motorcycle club like the notorious Bandidos. I also can't believe they believe what the some leadership of Bandidos say about, "glad the cops were there". What nonsense. Do they also believe everything that Obama and his ilk say?

    Many outlaw clubs have gotten smart and now try to look legitimate, much like the Italian Mafia did in later days. When I read the president or some other leadership of the Bandidos claim the above, I think of John Gotti and his attempt to look legitimate. Guess what happened to him, rightfully so.

    Having the misfortune of associating with 1%ers in my youth, I have forgotten more than most on this forum know, unless they're part of those murderous gangs.

    I won't bother with further experiences as I posted earlier. Plus, I've been accused of not respecting the 1st Amendment in so many words. Other than LEO being secretive about the incident, which could prove wrong-doing by arresting innocents, I still give them the benefit of the doubt over the Bandidos. I know what those f*ckers and other 1%ers are about. Screw their "freedom of association".

So I guess the Italian Mafia should have been free to extort, murder, and other proven crimes against civilized neighborhoods back in their heydays?

    Do you also include the Crips, Bloods, MS-13, 18th Street Gang, Mexican Mafia to freely associate with each other to continue their drive-bys and assassinations that occur almost daily? What the hell is wrong with you people? It's called CRIME, and it's been proven time and again. Sheesh.

All 1%ers are bad guys and can't believe some on this forum are trying to give them the benefit of the doubt in the Waco incident. Just the fact that they promoted/published a "sit-down" with other 1%ers is good enough for me for Law Enforcement agencies to monitor it.

    This is hardly a 1st Amendment issue. That said, I believe that the cops over-stepped their authority by arresting so many who weren't involved.

    Guess you didn't hear of the brawl/shootout in Lauglin some years ago between the HA's and the Mongols. There was plenty of security in the bar that had to intervene. Just friggin watch the Gangland series on outlaw bikers and you'll see the body count over the years from competing 1%ers.

    And no, as much as they try, they are not "professional". That's why they get infiltrated by LEO's so often and have mass arrests for various felonies and RICO. Watch it. You'll be convinced how awful they've become. BTW, some clubs are now pimping. How nice. I give up.

    Granted, the sweep of so many innocents was unjustified, but don't tell me the 1%ers should have the same rights as the average citizen. That patch is the equivalent of the Swastika.

    Sorry guy, you couldn't be more wrong. I just got out of the biker culture and the 1% designation is still true. They even have worse patches for those who have killed and who are "enforcers". I keep trying to tell you and others watch the History Channel Gangland series. Some are about MS-13 or 18th Street hispanic or black gangs. They often do episodes on the 1%er criminal bikers.

    "What is a 1% badge?

    It's a small diamond shaped patch with 1% in the middle that outlaw bikers have worn for decades to show they are the 1% amongst all other peaceful motorcycle riders. It's an identifier for their lawlessness and criminal activities. Stay away from them and don't look them in the eye and especially stay away from their bikes and where they park. Even if you win a fight with a 1%er, the loser will call his entire club to find you. Not good.

    You're right where Sonny came from and became president, but the first official chapter of the HA's was in San Berdoo.

    "I have posted links to a couple of the good ones. Like the Pagan/HA war in Philly."

    I wasn't talking about their wars. I was asking if anyone knows how the Hell's Angels started.

    Basically, they were post WWII veterans who still wanted the adrenaline rush and motorcycle races and hill-climbing satisfied that rush. Unfortunately, as they got more wild with their partying a bad element joined in. It all culminated in 1947 at the Hollister hill-climb competition (Gypsy Tour that sill exists) where they were excluded because of their attitudes. That's when the so-called Hollister riot occurred.

    It was way over-blown by the media because ONE guy rode his bike into a bar and they were drinking on the streets and leaving beer bottles and cans around. Hardly a riot. It was the genesis of the movie, "The Wild Ones". I was there for the 50th anniversary in 1997 and learned a great deal how the whole hard-core biker mystique originated.

    By the early 60's many of the original Vets were gone, but the hard-drinking hard-riding legacy lived and grew and they became so obsessed with partying and absolute freedom in the back country they became outlaws. That's when they took the name Hells Angels from a WWII Army Air Corp Squadron. Even at that time they weren't mean unless you crossed them. Then I guy named Sonny Barger organized the club in San Bernardino, CA and they went rogue. I actually talked to Sonny up in a Reno about his bike shop in Scottsdale, AZ. Not sure it's still there.

    Point is the HA's started out as Veterans looking for thrills but overdid their stay on the Gypsy Tour in Hollister and got pissed. The rest is history.

    There were also some other WWII vet motorcycle clubs back in the day like the Galloping Gooses and Iron Horsemen. I was actually naive enough to consider being a Prospect for the Satan's Slaves or Straight Satans? (a sister club of the Los Angeles HA's).

    I went to one party and watch their depraved antics like pissing on the first person to pass out, "red wings turns", passing around the "mamas", having to wear what was called "originals" (months old Levis with grease and other filth), and expeditions to find blacks to beat up. That was all too much for me - and have never had any interaction with those sick assholes since. However, I've had many great times with your average Harley rider. Just stay away and don't talk to 1%ers.

    "I have posted links to a couple of the good ones. Like the Pagan/HA war in Philly."

    I wasn't talking about their wars. I was asking if anyone knows how the Hell's Angels started.

    Basically, they were post WWII veterans who still wanted the adrenaline rush and motorcycle races and hill-climbing satisfied that rush. Unfortunately, as they got more wild with their partying a bad element joined in. It all culminated in 1947 at the Hollister hill-climb competition (Gypsy Tour that sill exists) where they were excluded because of their attitudes. That's when the so-called Hollister riot occurred.

    "I agree with your post but from what I see there are motorcycle clubs and riding clubs. The motorcycle clubs wear the MC patch and are the bad actors."

    That's a better way of explaining the difference - think Harley Owners Group (HOG) which is benign riding club that is sponsored by Harley-Davidson. They are a charitable organization. Then you have Patriot Guard Riders who are invited to our military/veteran funerals (I'm a memeber) Also, there are a couple of Christian MC's and a few others that have been given permission by the 1%ers to wear patches with rockers and the MC patch.

    Again, those who wear a 1% patch are the worse. They even have small patches for those who have killed. Forgot what it looks like, but I think resembles the SS gestapo insignia. I'm losing track, but check out the History Channel Gangland.

    Here's my 2 cents on this matter:
    Riding Harleys since I was 17, with a break in Navy years, and then again up until a couple years ago when I sold my Wide Glide.

    Two things I've learned about motorcycle clubs.
    1. The vast majority are good fun decent citizens that come from all walks of life and never cause problems, witness yearly Rolling Thunder. They may look imposing, but unless they are wearing a patch, they are mostly good ole boys looking to ride and party.
    2. Anyone who sports a 1% badge should be avoided at all costs. Every time I went to a biker event, if the 1%ers showed up, I left. There is reason they are called 1%ers. They are mean, vicious, cruel, territorial, drug-dealing outlaws. Watch the History Channel Gangland series for conformation which has under-cover LEO infiltrators describing just how bad they can be.

    "Kelly brought up the infamous liberal media outrage about Sarah Palin‘s “crosshairs” graphic for members of Congress to take out. One of them was Gabrielle Giffords, and after she was shot people raised eyebrows at Palin’s graphic.'

    Really? Still an issue? How many times and how many people, including me, know that those were registration marks and not gun sights? I remember as a kid buying flat cardboard toys to build houses or airplanes. In addition to the dotted lines as where to fold, they had the same registration marks to align the fold. Sheesh, have any of these people actually looked through a telescopic gun site? The lines don't go outside of the scope's circle.

    What a shame. People often don't realized how important the music/scores affect the feel of a movie. Horner was a great composer along the lines of John Williams. Without their compositions, many movies would be boring no matter how great the direction, acting, story-line, cinematography. Music can make a mediocre movie better, but also make a good movie mundane.

    Example: Texas Rising on HBO. Their music was right out of old TV westerns like Bonanza and the Big Valley. I stopped watching after the first episode. Even my wife commented, "What's with the old 60's 70's western music?"

    "Seriously, on this one. The US is not the only nation in the world with the ability to project power. Where is England, France, Germany, Italy, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Russia, India, Turkey."

    That's what I asked above. We know what our CinC is about, but where are they? I've always wondered why Russia didn't go all out on the Chechens for killing their children in Beslan. Let the Muslims pull that on American soil and not just some singular "lone wolves" and the "blades of grass" WILL start killing/destroying anything Muslim, including the so-called moderates. At my old age, I'll do what I can.

    "Because it is only Christians that are being raped, beaten and killed by sword to the neck."

    Sorry, but you're forgetting the countless atrocities towards their fellow Muslims of different sects. They all suck and should just be fuel/air bombed into ash. All of them.

    Read my post above about if a Beslan happens in this Country. Ex-military snipers will have a field day, and there's nothing the Fedgov or local SWAT teams will be able to do about it. They'll hit and run without leaving forensic evidence. If the above were to happened, I would also expect many Mosques go down in flames. While I don't want to see or approved of the above, I truly think it's coming. Glad I'm at the end stretch and hope I don't have to see such guerrilla warfare on our soil.

    "Americans are sick of sending their sons and daughters to die for goals that won’t be kept. No one wants to die for bringing a few months of freedom to a corner of the world."

    I agree. Besides the dead, most people don't know how many more thousands of Americans were wounded and maimed for that ME cesspool.

    I now have doubts if we should have invaded Iraq. However, since we did, we should have stayed as we did in Germany and Japan.

    As for ISIS, they could be decimated if the US and other Western nations bombarded them into oblivion (collateral damage be damned - think Dresdan, Hamburg, Hiroshima, etc.) We know where they are and we don't need boots on the ground - death from the skies!

    But of course, our so-called CinC won't do that, but recently sends over some 500 ground troops to be cannon fodder in the name of training Iraqi troops. After all, he needs to protect his Nobel Peace Prize, not to mention his Muzzie brethern.
