I'm fine with this, so long as the complete ban on Yooper marriage remains intact.

flondrix: hubiestubert: Don't like it? Don't eat it. But never mind what anyone else has on their plates...

Bad analogy.  For most people, that conjures up memories of a time when you didn't have a choice about what was on your plate, or whether you would eat it.

And even afterwards there are "food evangelists" who refuse to believe that you really don't like zucchinni/broccoli/raw fish/tripe/whatever and once you've had it the way they prepare it you'll just love it.

I don't know if it is such a bad analogy. There is this guy at work who keeps telling me "try it, you will like it this time." It's been 37 times now and I still don't like blowing him. I am starting to wonder if I ever will.

Good. I miss my homeland. It's about time they did something right that doesn't include hoppy beer.

Tyranny of the majority.

I'll take "Things people reference when they realize their opinions are not held by the majority of society" for $1,000, Alex.

What is women's suffrage?
What is inter-racial marriage?

What is freedom of the press to print unpopular opinions?

thecpt: It always looked like a hand grabbing a weird penis. Now I can imagine a ring around traverse city.

Um... I think that says more about you than the state.

ok, national parks aren't essential government business but forced gay turtle marriage is?!  What the hell kind of slimdown is this anyhow, republicans?

Well, given that civilizatio has already collapsed in half the state and transformed it into a post-apocalyptic hellscape, exactly what further harm could legalizing gay marriage do?

slayer199: The Evil Home Brewer: LOL.... Wierd? Try living here. We can't decide if we are rednecks or hillbillies. All we do know is we own guns, we love pasties, we like Obama, and we are suspicious of Tea Partiers .... and Ted Nugent lives here.

Pretty scary mix overall.... But still not worthy of a FARK Michigan tag

I do live in Michigan...which is why I said it was weird.  We have Detroit, and then we have the downriver rednecks next door to Detroit.  We have the one of the largest Arabic populations in the country, yet no terrorist attacks (of course, what would you attack?  Detroit looks like it's already been bombed).  It's an odd state politically...solidly Blue for Presidential and Senate elections....solidly red within the state House and Senate.  It's strange.

Ted Nugent no longer lives in Michigan...he moved to Texas some years ago (but I think his hunting store in Jackson is still around).

Yes..... Detroit is a shell of its former greatness. Mayor Coleman Young may have been corrupt.... But he kept Detroit running. The Arabic community? Great people overall... Never had any issues with any of them.... nor were there issues within the community at all.

Ted no longer lives here? Nice..... I missed that memo. If Bo Schembeckler could own a pizza place in Columbus, OH while he was alive, Ted can own a hunting store in Jackson..... as long as he stays in Texas
