Since the Supreme Court threw out Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act in late June, LGBT couples have quietly achieved victory after victory when it comes to visas, taxes and health care.

But perhaps the greatest victory came Friday when the name “Cheney” became delinked from the cause of equal marriage, which has now achieved more in three months than during Newt Gingrich’s, Donald Trump’s or Rush Limbaugh’s last three marriages.

Liz Cheney — daughter of former vice president of the United States and CEO of Halliburton Dick Cheney — declared on Friday, “I am not pro-gay marriage.”

For years, conservatives had fun prodding the left by noting that Dick Cheney was more progressive than President Obama on the issue of same-sex marriage. In 2004, even as George W. Bush was running for re-election under the banner that we needed a Constitutional amendment banning marriage equality — presumably to preserve the sanctity of Gingrich’s, Trump’s and Limbaugh’s latest marriages — the elder Cheney declared that he thought same-sex marriage was a state matter.

And that is now his daughter Liz’s opinion, more than eight years later. Thankfully, the president has leapfrogged (or leap-evolved) over the Cheneys, as evidenced by his second inaugural address, the first to ever mention gay rights, and his administration’s clear policy that marriage is marriage, regardless of what a state says.

Cheney felt obligated to state her “states’ rights” stance because a poll showed Wyoming voters were confused on what her stand was and her only justification for her primary challenge against Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY) is that she’s more conservative than he is. And when it comes to marriage, Enzi shares George W. Bush’s desire to amend the Constitution for the first time to take away a right from a specific group by banning gay marriage.

Updating her stance on marriage would be possibly the only interesting stance Cheney could take in her primary campaign. Her qualification(s) for trying to unseat Enzi include a position at the State Department she got thanks to her last name and years of spitting invective at President Obama on Fox News. If being a beneficiary of nepotism and saying horrible things about Obama were qualifications for the U.S. Senate, the GOP wouldn’t still be desperate for decent Senate candidates in Michigan, Georgia and Virginia, where Liz Cheney actually lives.

Of course, there is one Cheney who is as progressive as the president now is when it comes to equal marriage: Mary Cheney.

On her Facebook page, the other Cheney daughter, who is openly gay, posted the following and asked people to share it:

For the record, I love my sister, but she is dead wrong on the issue of marriage. Freedom means freedom for everyone. That means that all families—regardless of how they look or how they are made—all families are entitled to the same rights, privileges and protections as every other.

LOL. And good for Mary Cheney.

  1. “The younger Paul, Cruz and Cheney represent a new generation of Republicans that believes the end justifies the means, even if it means selling out your own.”

    Hell, that’s what the LAST generation of Republicans had done, too, “selling out your own”, going back to Reagan and elder Bush, as well as the worst, younger Bush. That is, if you consider “your own” to be ordinary Americans, middle class Americans with modest assets (not enough to buy a politician).

    • Come to think of it, former President George W. Bush sold out our souls when he declared Saudi Arabia a Most Favored Nation for trade purposes shortly after 9/11. The fact that q5 of the 18 terrorists that carried out the attack were from Saudi Arabia, that the Al Qaeda financiers, and the mastermind of that tragedy (OBL) were all from Saudi Arabia did not stop or bother our former president. Getting lucrative contracts and enticing the Saudis to continue to buy our Treasure bonds to finance our debt was far more important than bringing justice to the 3,000 people killed on 9/11/01. The next step was to find a culprit to achieve our geo-political and economic goals, and change the image of a pathetic man who ignored all the warnings given to him, to transform himself into a “war president” after our sovereignty was violated and our confidence shattered.
      That’s the GOP record modern day Republicans are desperately trying to erase by talking about Benghazi, the IRS, the Patriot Act, marriage equality, abortion and just about anything they can get their hands on.
      I often refer to them as a party of no ideas. When it comes to 9/11, Judas is their idol and money their only goal.

      • And instead of attacking the country that actually produced terrorists, he attacked Iraq under the influence of Cheney aka Halliburton.

        • Bush’s thinking on that must have went like this. On 911 we were attacked by 19 Saudi Arabian nationals, living in Germany, and trained in Afghanistan. All of which can, of course, mean only one thing. We were attacked by…………..Iraq.

          • I don’t really think the younger Bush was a great thinker. Cheney wanted the elder Bush to take out Saddam Hussein, but the elder Bush would not. The younger Bush was easier manipulated.

          • I think that Colin Powell was instrumental in convincing Bush Sr.
            we had accomplished our mission in Iraq and that Cheney was wrong, which in turn led to Cheney’s enmity thereafter against Powell. But then…Powell’s military record pales into insignificance when compared to Cheney’s, NOT!

        • It must be very hard to live in a world without your favorite tyrannt Sadaam Hussian, just remember the maggots refused to even eat his diseased brain in the coffin.

      • Their focus on money was evident even to the point of them deliberately ignoring 7 desperate warnings from the CIA over a 3 month period that an imminent attack was coming from al Qaeda (bin Laden). The CIA representives briefing Bush and Cheney became so frustrated after a briefing in early July that several of them actually put in for transfers. And Bush and Cheney knew an attack was comming yet refused to allow the CIA to spend the money it needed to focus on trying to prevent the attack.

        It’s clear Bush and Cheney knew it was coming, why else did Bush take the longest vacation of his presidency immediately following the 7th briefing in August – he tied Nixon for the longest consequtive days vacation for any modern president – 30 days from 8/7/2001 to 9/7/2001. I’m sure Bush expected that the al Qaeda attack would come while he was dogging it in Texas for 30 days; but he knew at some point he had to return to Washington. And if he didn’t suspect an al qaeda attack was comming, why had he arranged to be 1,500 miles away from Washington in Sarasota, Fl reading to school kids on 9/11?? less than a week after returning from 30 straight days away from the office??

        Bush and Cheney may not have suspected the severity of the 9/11 attack that ended up killing nearly 3,000 Americans; but they new full well that it was coming and were willing to allow it to happen just to give them one more excuse for starting the Iraq war where they knew the BIG MONEY WAS for their buddies with ties to the defense industry. Big money for their buddies and probably kick backs for them too.
        And GWB probably felt he needed to settle a vendetta he had with Saddam for trying to kill Bush Sr. in Kuwait after the 1st Gulf war – so he got all this big money and settled a vendetta which were paid for by the lives of nearly 3,000 Americans in the homeland and over 4,000 American soldiers in Iraq – along with the lives of countless Iraqis. And these two men are walking around free today after allowing such a tragedy to be perpetrated on America and the world.

          • I am not quite sure what an a$$hole such as yourself makes you think that you are better than any other person or people. Cause it is pretty obvious that you don’t have much going for you.

          • Obama said, the morning call to prayer is the most beautiful sound on earth. He was raised muslim, he is still muslim, and he wants the Islamic flag flying over the WH

          • You really excel at stupidity….my catholic grandfather said the same thing, when I was a Christian they said the same thing. PROVE he is a muslim and that you are not. I know PROVE or FACT are scary words to you because you speak directly from your rectum. And if you are jewish or have Jewish roots, then you share the same father as the muslims, so get over it.

          • Obama admitted he is muslim so you prove he isn’t!! He has chosen MB members to work all through our Government. So when you’re done playing with yourself, take time to look it up, pervert

          • Sure he did, in your tiny little mind; or maybe just a quote from Limbaugh, Hannity, O Reilly, Palin, West. Trump or Bachmann, because if its’ on faux news it must be true. Oooops , forgot Beck, god spoke to him and told him Obama was a Muslim. Now take that fist out of your vagina, it’s affecting your “thinking”.

          • Time to crawl out of the occupy tent and get some fresh air.
            And shouldn’t you be saying “for the love of Darwin?”

          • Haven’t seen you around for a while. you must have been in the psych ward, Draw Anal. We didn’t miss you.

          • If Obama strikes Syria, Iran is threatening mass abductions and murders of Americans worldwide, and raping and murdering one of his daughters. Are you a war monger now like the coward in the WH?? Quit playing with yourself and answer

        • I wonder where the $6.3 billion dollars, in cash, is??? Still can’t seem to find it. Geez, with all our high-tech equipment and NSA reading our emails and listening to our phone calls ya think they could find it.

          • Well, don’t forget that with 2.4 billion phone calls made in America each day and 294 billion emails sent (just within the country) – the NSA has to focus the majority of its time looking for a needle in a haystack – a few hundred terrorist/nefarious phone calls/emails among billions – despite what most Americans would like to think – they probably stand a better chance of winning the lottery than having the NSA monitoring any of their phone calls/emails.

        • Are you another 9/11 truther loon? There’s a job for you at CNN. You can appear on camera with another 9/11 truther (and ex-con and admitted communist) — Van Jone

          • The Law enforcement approach was and remains the most effective approach, but of course what is fact in face of your rhetoric?

          • If you believe that, you are more deluded than I thought possible.
            Tell me, when did Bin Laden run to Pakistan? When indictments were issued or when bombs started falling?

          • I believe facts, or try to, not what I or someone else made up. So yes, I believe that, because it is supported by the facts. You. on the other hand, have simply strongly implied those of us who disagree with your are both traitors and stupid and made a bunch of right-wing, largely baseless accusations.

          • The facts are Bin Laden fled Afghanistan when the bombs started falling, not when the indictments were issued.
            With the military you go on the offensive which puts the enemy on the defensive which makes it hard for them to plan attacks since they have to focus all their attention and energy on survival. Law enforcement is reactive and therefore defensive in nature; you have to be right 100% of the time but the enemy only has to be right once.

        • Journalist Greg Palast agrees that the Iraq war was all about oil, but it was not to get the Iraqis produce more oil to ease shortages and bring prices down, but to make sure that Iraq could not produce oil and that the Saudi monopoly and power would be maintained.

          • You got it!! The major focus for the war was all about ripping off billions of taxpayers’ money!!!

          • Of course the taxpayers didn’t get ripped off when Solyndra went under with more than $500 million in taxpayer funds, did we? (The investors, all major Obama bundlers, will get paid back before we do. Funny how that works, huh?)
            BTW Halliburton has created more “shovel ready” jobs than your savior could ever dream of

          • You’re right THE TAXPAYERS DID NOT GET RIPPED OFF BY THE FAILURE OF SOLYNDRA!! People like you who make those nonsense comments only serve to prove how clueless you are about the truth.

            The Truth:

            1) Solyndra’s application for a government loan was initally approved by the Bush Administration and was on George Bush’s desk to be signed when Obama took office. The Obama administration did not sign Solyndra’s loan app based solely on the Bush administration’s vetting of Solyndra; they did a thorugh vetting of the Solyndra app and also approved it.

            2) Solyndra did not fail because of an internal failure within the Solyndra company operations (or because of any cronyism); it failed because so many American manufacturing jobs had been destroyed and sent to China by anti-American profeteers like Mitt Romney, that the Chinese developed the know how in building solar panels and other solar equipment that Solyndra could not compete with the cheap products that were coming out of China.

            3) Solyndra was only one of a handful of Green Energy companies that were part of Obama’s stimulus package signed in February of 2009; the stimulus energy package was so successful that a book has been written documenting all the successes. That stimulus was the most successful R&D (Research & Development) venture funding ever undertaken by the U.S.; More than 93% of the 29 billion dollars allocated during the stimulus (only 29 out of 90 billion initially set aside was ever awarded) resulted in the development of new energy technologies and thriving GREEN ENERGY CORPORATIONS. If you doubt that, take a trip to Iowa were you find a number of green energy companies in the solar and wind industry that are thriving.

            The 93% success rate of the stimulus’ green energy projects which also brought in over 100 million of private sector investment, is absolutely phenominal for that type of risky investment; delving into technologies that have been untested/untried. Anyone who expected that there would not be failures as part of this investment, only show how clueless they are about reality.

          • Haliburton developing shovel ready jobs is a bunch BS. Haliburton defrauded our government of millions, maybe billions of money during the Iraq war when Cheney granted the company no bid contracts. Haliburton was caught charging our government $100/gallon of gas to fill up jeeps- not to mention the billions they were award to cover maintenance contracts in Iraq which mysteriously never got accomplished.

          • which is a fraction of the national debt as well as the cost of the “Great Society” which hasn’t turned out to be so great

          • You are really reaching ~ “Great Society” ~ Sounds like my in-laws who have been fortunate to have good jobs thru thick and thin! ~ BTW Good for them, but it would be nice if they realize not all of us have been that fortunate and with all the work hours we put in there was no time for vacations! ~ Thank God we had our health and could do it and are now retired and OK, not flush, but OK! ~~~ As for the national debt, you really don’t think that GWB’s great idea of lowering the taxes for the wealthy (by a huge amount) had anything to do with the national debt, let alone the humongous amount spent on two (not one) but two wars he chose to get us into ~ Remember Cheney saying “the oil would pay for it” ~ Yeah, we can believe him ~ You do know how to tell when he is lying don’t you? ~ HE IS TALKING!

          • Obama wants to go to war with Syria to help radical Islamic terrorists take over the country just like he helped them take over Libya and Egypt. When are you ever going to wake up??? This fake in our WH is a muslim terrorist and he sides with muslim terrorists EVERY TIME!!!!!

          • Apparently you don’t pay attention. That’s exactly what he did. He helped radicals take over Libya and Egypt and look what a mess they are in. Now he wants radicals to take over Syria too!!!

          • Where is the “proof” that “he helped radicals take over Libya and Egypt” ~ I would be interested in where your information came from ~~~

          • You must be new to this website if you’re asking Lana where her information came from. If she tells you, you’re in for some interesting reading. Think of Alice going down the rabbit hole into wonderland. That’s where you’re headed countrygirl.

          • Wasn’t that the greatest moment when Joe Wilson yelled YOU LIE to Ohomo and the WHOLE world was watching. We need more America loving Patriots to expose the liar!!!!

          • My information sure wasn’t from the MSM, they won’t tell you shit if it is something that makes Ohomo look bad. They are to blame for letting him become the monster that he is. NEVER holding him accountable for any mess he creates—it’s always someone elses fault and always will be when it comes to him!!!

          • I don’t know lana. MSNBC seems conflicted on Syria. While some lefties like Martin Bashir and others have suddenly turned into the General Ironballs Mcwarguts hour, urging military action against Syria on behalf of Obama, others on that network have criticized Obama over this daily…like Ed Schultz and Chris Hayes. It’s seems roughly 50-50.

            I would contrast that with Fox News who have apparently become the dove releasing, Dalai Lama, peace be upon you, network. Yes, that’s the same network who’ve spent the last 12 years advocating for “if we don’t fight them there we’ll be fighting them here”, and “we have to spread democracy and fight tyrants.”

            I will say though that O’Reilly comes the closest to at least flirting with supporting Obama on this.

          • Not sure I agree with that “all about oil”; it’s my feeling it was “all about money”!! Why else did Cheney hand out no bid contracts to all his defense industry buddies including Haliburton, Blackwater and others? And his buddies proceeded to not only defraud the government of millions, maybe billions via faked bills for work they never did; they also overcharged for all the services they did provide – like Haliburton charging $100/gal for gas to fill up jeeps.

      • Members of the bin Laden family were living in the Boston area in September of 2001, and Bush made secret arrangements to have them flown out of the US to Saudi Arabia on a military flight on September 12. No point in upsetting the Saudi oil sheiks by detaining the bin Ladens for interrogation about Osama, eh?

        • Only total rubbish to a GOP lover who only wants to here lie after lie about what THEY want to here. Dominick didn’t even get into Bush DELIBERATELY letting the 9/11 attack happen in order to give him another excuse to attack Iraq. He probably didn’t realize the attack bin Laden was planning would end up killing 3,000 Americans, but HE DELIBERATELY ALLOWED IT TO HAPPEN by refusing to let the CIA and FBI make a concerted effort to try and stop it. The CIA begged Bush and Cheney 7 times over 3 months to let them focus on trying to stop and imminent attack from al Qaeda (bin Laden) that they had intelligence feedback on – BUT Bush and Cheney said NO!! 7 times!! (Bush and Cheney insisted that the CIA AND FBI continue to focus on trying to find them evidence that Iraq had WMD’s and they wouldn’t let them deviate from that mission even to stop an attack on the homeland.)
          You’re most likely going to claim that’s “rubbish” too but it is the TRUTH!!! Bush & Cheney should both be in prison for dereliction of duty and the manslaughter of more than 7,000 Americans along with being responsible for the deaths of countless Iraqis.

          • Got to love the Progressive who types in capitals as if that makes the argument correct. It’s still RUBBISH no matter what font you use. I don’t think you can handle the TRUTH.

          • I knew you’d be in denial – talk about not being able to handle the truth. Well, here’s the link to one article on the Bush administration ignoring the CIA’s warnings – and there’s more articles you can find if you do a search on interviews with some of the CIA operatives who took part in the briefings:
            (Note that no matter how many times the warning was given, Bush came up with some excuse to not believe the CIA.)


            And here’s an excerpt from the above link:

            And the CIA repeated the warnings in the briefs that followed. One reported on June 29 warned that the planned near-term attacks would have “dramatic consequences,” including major casualties. On July 1, the brief stated that the operation had been delayed, but “will occur soon.” Some of the briefs again reminded Mr. Bush that the attack timing was flexible, and that, despite any perceived delay, the planned assault was on track.

            Yet, the White House failed to take significant action.

            On July 24, President Bush was notified that the attack was still being readied, but that it had been postponed, perhaps by a few months. But the president did not feel the briefings on potential attacks were sufficient, asking instead for a broader analysis on Al Qaeda, its aspirations and its history. In response, the CIA began work on the Aug. 6 brief.

            But even as the that brief was being prepared, Mohamed al-Kahtani, a Saudi believed to have been assigned a role in the 9/11 attacks, was stopped at an airport in Orlando, Fla., by a suspicious customs agent and sent back overseas on Aug. 4. Two weeks later, another co-conspirator, Zacarias Moussaoui, was arrested on immigration charges in Minnesota after arousing suspicions at a flight school. But the pieces of the puzzle were never put together, and Washington failed to react.

            We’ll never know if the Bush Administration could have possibly prevented 9/11, but Eichenwald suggests that it’s not from a lack of advance warning.

          • Save yourself some time. I don’t give a damn about your research. Send it to someone who thinks like you do.

          • Sorry, I totally forgot that GOP lovers don’t know anything about thinking!! All you know how to do is act like a Faux News Sheeple!!! Well then go to it!!

          • Sounds like you don’t like to research things ~ You believe what you choose to believe & that is exactly what is wrong with a lot of voters in this country right now!!!

          • Even the British know Bush and Cheney were derelict in their duty. Here’s the headlines from the British publication The Mail Online:

            Revealed: How George W. Bush was given SEVEN warnings about threat from Bin Laden in months before 9/11

            White House given series of briefings about an Al Qaeda attack between May and August 2001 – but failed to take any significant action

            Lengthy briefs included interviews with Bin Laden aides admitting an attack with multiple casualties was ‘imminent’

            Bush asked for more evidence – frustrating the CIA

            Highlights startling negligence of U.S. government before 9/11

  2. From the Liberalist, and Progressive, to the Conservative Democrat, all believe at the end of the day, it will not be the special interests, the billionaires, or the avalanche of corporate money flowing into the electoral, and legislative processes, that will ultimately determine the course of America. But the collective decision of the People, to determine their own best interests. It is the Democratic Party, that
    is staking it’s future, that at the end of the day, it will be the People that charts a future in the best interests of their children, that will finally win out. The belief that American was not founded for the benefit of the few. But, for the fulfillment of the common man’s dreams, aspirations, and happiness. And not the forfeiture of
    one, to make possible beyond the wildest dreams, of the other. It is asked, “What does it profit a man to gain the world, if he loses his soul in the bargain?” What then does it profit a Nation to conquer the world, if it’s people are shackled by the chains of poverty, and the bondage of hunger? That the concept of freedom, and liberty must include more than the Right to seek a better life. It must also include the opportunities, and possibilities of achieving that life. Without regard to who you are, or where you came from. That for America to be a truly great Country, it must continue to reward hard diligent work, with a fair day’s wage. And both recognize, and reject the exploitation of labor, as the enemy of freedom, and liberty, wherever that exploitation occurs. Be it with immigrants within our borders, or the Asian laboring beneath the boot of Communist oppression, for the profits of U.S. Corporations. Is it not all one and the same? Flowing from the greed of the few, at the expense of everyone else? And isn’t this the central theme of the reconstructed
    not so grand as before, Party? Their emphatic yes, yes, yes, to less worker rights,
    lower taxes for the corporate, and monied elite. And, absolutely, no, no, no, to
    a living wage, available and affordable healthcare, and equal Rights for all Americans. Be they poor, African American, Hispanic/Latino, or Gay.

  3. Throwing the people you love under the bus for political reasons: a fine Republican tradition. I honestly think Liz is as evil as her father.

    • I honestly think Liz is as evil as her father.

      Of course she is. Over at Fox “News” where she is perfectly at home with the rest of the scoundrels, she will be beating the drums of war, because Daddy and his cronies, among the major players in our plutocracy, will lust after perpetual wars for perpetual profits. Their shallow flag waving patriotism will continue as long as others are doing the fighting and dying.

      • “Over at Fox “News” where she is perfectly at home with the rest of the scoundrels”
        As opposed to race pimp and riot king Sharpton (of Tawana Brawley/Crown Heights/Freddie’s Mart fame) getting his own show at MSNBC (they deserve each other)

  4. I agree with everything said by all of you re the Republicans, the Iraqi War, and oil. However where Lynn Cheney’s concerned, I can only hope that they voters reject her as the opportunist she is and for her lack of family loyalty and solidarity.

  5. Imagine a Southern segregationist politician sometime before 1950, who supports laws against mixed race marriage in his state, but has a son who married a black girl in a Northern state, and occasionally visits his home state. One would think that such a man, or perhaps his OTHER children, would use the example of his own son and black daughter-in-law to persuade segregationists to allow such marriages, especially when this mixed-race couple is HELPING him with his campaign.

    But no, this hypothetical politician just “makes an exception” for his own son’s family, and refuses to talk about his support for laws that would punish this couple by jail time unless they stayed out of state and never visited their parents, because the voters (white ones, of course) in his state would VOTE HIM OUT if he supported his own family.

    Now, after Dad has moved on to a higher office in another state, the other son is running for his old seat, and the vocal voters are even MORE strident about the anti-miscegenation laws than they were in Dad’s day. So he HAS TO throw his brother and sister-in-law under the campaign bus, or lose the election. So what does he do? Blood may be thicker than water, but money is thicker than blood.

    The mock Presidential candidate Pat Paulsen, in 1968, gave his position on feminism (then called “women’s lib”) by saying, “I believe in equal rights for all, regardless of the SHAPE of their skin. I have nothing against women, but I wouldn’t want my daughter marrying one.”

  6. The republicans are playing leap frog toward the right. It’s like they are in a bubble since the rest of the country is moving toward equal rights on this issue. They are all so predictable, offering no new ideas on anything. It’s like they are trying to have a primary in 1953 instead of today. Her farther did more damage to this country financially, and it’s reputation in the world than anybody. I’m surprised she would even show her face in politics. Her father was a member of the cheat lie and steal party, oh that’s right I meant republican.

  7. Poor Mary Cheney, born into that crazy family. Her sister just threw her under the bus. So much for the republican mantra of “family values”.

  8. How can Liz Cheney run in an election in Wyoming while her legal resident as I understand is in Virginia? Which state does she vote in, Virginia or Wyoming? Are does she do like another Republican did, Ann Coulter who voted in Florida(has a 2nd home there) and I believe in New York(her legal resident), Coulter is the voter doing the fraud that Republicans keep saying their voting restrictions are going to stop. Liz Cheney is just as underhanded as her father and likes breaking laws just like her father. Bet she is hoping we attack Syria so Halliburton will make lots of money since she is in charge of it now. When you are willing to throw family members under the bus for any reason, don’t be surprised if they don’t show up to help you when you need their help.

  9. Whatever the title of this article says, I suspect a great many of us were never under the illusion that the Cheneys could not get worse.

  10. You hate the Cheney’s because they do not swallow your desire to promote homosexual marriage? There is something wrong with all this “hate” you so eloquently pronounce over the Cheney family. Dick Cheney served this Nation wth dignity and integrity which is far more than I can say for the clowns you seem to support. Amateur hour is putting it kindly. Show me one child that has been produced from the “filth” you promote and I will gladly apologize.

    • Dick swallows it. Or is Lynne now swallowing Dick. I’m not sure. At any rate, Dick Cheney supports gay marriage the last I heard.

  11. I am Pro-Gay Marriage. BUT, what troubles me most about this headline and, the whole thrust of this article, is the bashing of Liz Cheney for exercising 1st Amendment rights stating she isn’t! So what? Why do all the hate mongers and their sheep followers have to show THEIR intolerance while they castigate her for the same offense? Disgusting, hypocritical and ridiculous.

  12. Cheney has no character or integrity. He has played the nation like a piano to enrich himself. A thoroughly disgusting excuse for a human being. On top of that I don’t like him.

  13. Just because you call it gay marriage doesn’t make it marriage. Call it what you want and do what you want. Not everybody is going to agree. So what? The fact is that the federal government should get out of the marriage business altogether and leave it to the states. And there is no such thing as marriage equality, no matter how many times you claim that there should be. What about single equality, divorce equality, widow equality? They sound pretty ridiculous too.

    You did hit the nail on the head about the vocal divorcees – the Kardashians, Trumps, and all the other so-called “celebrity” divorcees have probably impugned the institution of marriage more than any gay people.

  14. It sounds like someone writes an article and then everyone else on the staff gets busy writing the comments. Democrats prescribe to the P.T. Barnham philosophy of “there’s a sucker born every minute.” No matter how you try to educate the masses, there will always be an opportunity to sell Florida swampland. In this day and age they tell us that bad is good and good is evil and I often wonder if they really believe what they are saying or if in their heart of hearts, they know what’s wrong from right, but are determined to do it anyway. Oh well, if it’s any consolation, at least it feels good not to be them.
