zerkalo: Alabama education: first in football, last in every other metric
ur14me: Ah, yes. The call of the Liberal-Minded Douchenugget: "If you don't accept me or my position, you're not exercising your right to an opposing view, you're just an ignorant bigot."/Never gets old//Not saying AL is right///Saying opposing views are what makes this country great
Lsherm: Racism in New Jersey is loud, obnoxious, and very much out in the open.
eraser8: MBrady: Why is gay marriage a "civil rights" issue? It is not, since they are free to marry anyone of the opposite sex.And, before Loving v Virginia. Whites were free to marry anyone white and blacks -- and other non-whites -- were free to marry anyone not white.Wasn't that accommodation enough? Shouldn't that be sufficient for anybody? Does it really matter that you're not allowed to marry the person you love most in the world? After all, you're allowed to marry somebody. Isn't that good enough? Isn't that all the Constitution requires?If I've misunderstood your position, please correct me. Please explain the difference.
utah dude: hero tag for alabama.
Proteios1: Shouldn't be teaching homosexuality to minors anyways. The whole concept is stupid.
Stone Meadow: Lionel Mandrake: Stone Meadow: Lionel Mandrake: But outside the largest "city," where I live (population 7500), it's fkn backwoods Mississippi.Lemme guess...Glenn Co.?Del Norte, top left.Actually moved (back) here after being in Glenn for a couple of years. At least DN has incredible natural beauty, but Glenn, while it has a few beautiful parts, is very, very "meh" in the natural wonder category.Ah, yeah...DN is a beautiful place. I can't handle the weather up there, though...Seattle...south./Bay Area
Rik01: This whole Gay thing is starting to become similar to how it was for the blacks before and during the Civil Rights movement.Alabama was one of the states which would argue stubbornly how blacks were inferior and didn't deserve the rights given to other folks. They held on to many of their segregation laws long after other states had repealed their own.It was a long, hard fight for Civil Rights and, apparently, Gays are going to have to face a similar one, encountering the same excuses that have been brought up for segregation over the decades. They're going to face massive walls of STUPID on all sides no matter what they do.
Via Infinito: I was surprised to see that Orange county is red, but then I remembered that's where Saddleback is.
Stone Meadow: Krymson Tyde: For the first time in my life I am looking for a job outside of the southeast US.I've gotten just that fed up with the ignorance and bigotry here.If you move to Cali be sure to settle in a blue county. The Derp in our red counties takes a back seat to no one.[upload.wikimedia.org image 335x570]Come to think of it, though, the blue counties are the nice ones to live and work in anyway. So there's that.
edmo: People love to carry that Constitution thingy around in their pockets but aren't much on reading it. I'm sure they will continue to try and push their religious views into law forever.
cman: mrshowrules: In addition to it being absolutely disgusting it is also factually wrong.It is doubly factually wrong actually. Not only were sodomy laws struck down in that State it was neither necessarily or exclusively a homosexual act.I wonder if there is a State regulation or law against an official misrepresenting State law.I think this will end up being one of those incidents where the fed gov will send in troops to uphold SCOTUS decisions.
