@120 of it's appeal. I meant "of it's repeal"

SB We elect represnatives to vote for us. This is a represnative democracy not a direct democracy. NY has no referendum procedures, we elect our leaders so they may vote in our stead. When a vote like this comes up however, we call their offices and let them know how we want them to vote.

IF my beloved state wants this law overturned it would be simple. Next election cycle, remove from office those representatives who supported this amazing piece of legislation, and elect those in favor of it's appeal. This should sound familiar to you, as the right tried to remove from office (through the power of the ballot box) those who supported health care reform.

But don't get your hopes up SB, we New Yorkers overwhelmingly support marriage equality. THAT is the will of the people. NEW YORK has spoken, MARRIAGE IS FOR EVERYONE!

@49 Slippery Slope argument.

First they'll take a small portion of your money for universal health care, then they'll take ALL your money for reasons.

The UK has been taking money from it's citizens for the NHS for half a century, that program isn't going away, it isn't degenerating and the UK isn't becoming authoritarian. Their Democracy is going strong in case you haven't noticed.

"In the UK life expectancy has been rising and infant mortality has been falling since the NHS was established. Both figures compare favourably with other nations. Surveys also show that patients are generally satisfied with the care they receive from the NHS. Importantly, people who have had recent direct experience of the NHS tend to report being more satisfied than people who have not."

Meanwhile our Infant Mortality rate is worse than Cuba's and our Life Expectancy is pathetic compared to those countries with universal health care. But it's the poor's fault for being poor and then choosing to get sick. Those immoral bastards.

And no one chooses to be poor, but then again you think people choose to be gay, so brick wall, thy name is Seattleblues.

@40 And extreme right politics leads to fascism ala Nazi Germany, Imperialist Japan, and Italy under Mussolini. Comparing Universal Health Care and gay marriage to the USSR is laughable.

The UK has had universal health care for over half a century, are they somehow a communist super power in disguise? What about Canada!? Secure the border from those evil commies. *eye roll*

Oh and the poor are poor because they're too lazy to become rich. You sir are a very good troll.

"He will never legally be married in this country."

Except in Mass., Iowa, the District of Columbia, Conn., New Hampshire, Vermont, or in the Coquille Tribe. New York is likely to follow suit as a majority of the citizens here support SSM.

His marriage will be recognized in Maryland and NY as well.

@13 So whenever a straight couple adopt a kid and don't have any contact with the mother they were snatching a child?

Also how is it "snatching a child" if the mother gives them the child of her own free will? They aren't going into the hospital maternity ward and just grabbing a baby in case you were wondering.

Don't forget McCarthyism and the Red Scare. Oh and the lovely threat of world war III.

Good times?

@17 I think they keep LC around because it makes things more interesting this way. Only LC can make such utterly stupid posts.

PS Won't someone please think of those poor commuters? Ignore those people who have/might lose their jobs for being gay, those commuters are the real victims.
