The ignorance, it hurts.

Some Americans are actually convinced that God will rain fire and brimstone down upon the United States.

Really? Maybe they had better join the 20th century, if not the 21st.

I get that everybody is all about love, but there is something creepy in the overreach with the Supreme Court, as well as their overreach on obamacare. It is depressing to see the destruction of state rights and a forced mandatory insurance buy all in the same week. People now have to pay for a product they might not want, and buy a license they may not need. Ka-Ching!

It is a little unsettling for those of us who are paying attention.

Market ticker (denninger) has a few good articles on the subject.

Let's not be so blinded that we cannot see.

A really cute GIF, for what it is worth.

That's hilarious, Chevy. This is a quote from something I wrote yesterday. lol

Yeah, but a LARGE chunk who don't approve can't just have a live and let live attitude.

They have to declare how they are the reason fire and brimstone will soon be cast upon the planet any time now. They paint them out to be the most disgusting creatures on the face of the planet. Unnatural beings who don't deserve to breath. Going against "god's" word, blah, blah, ****ing, blah.

You okay with that?

Didn't see that, Mags. We must have been looking at some of the same things. Still, credit where credit is due for first noticing--to you. Good catch!

No, no, Chevy. No credit. There are WAY too many people who actually believe this is going to happen.

I like to cruise the P&OC forum. This kind of verbal diarrhea is rampant in there.

In a year it will almost all but forgotten. They will be on to their next battle. However people should never take anything for granted and must be diligent.

I'm happy for the US. We as Canadians know that having a group of people getting equal rights doesn't take away anything from others.

Well our current Prime Minister didn't say much better when we expanded equal rights back in the 2000s .

Just like here, I agree it will be a right that it taken for granted soon enough - glad to see progress.

Why is it on the Canada forum? Shouldn't you post on the American forum?

Oh, wait, we don't have enough posts talking about America here!
