defining marriage

I was accidentally watching the Bill O'Reilly show and the topic was gay marriage. He said something that made me think. he said something to the effect that gay marriage could not be legalized because then people would be able to marry animals and ducks and claim equal protection if they were not allowed. that is a paraphrase not an exact quote.

I realized that O'Reilly is wrong because marriage has been defined, not just here but in mostly all countries in the world. A law saying marriage is between two consenting adults would quell all people scared of the odd marriage: man and duck, man and computer, woman and Dennis Rodman.

throughout the history of the USA marriage has been regulated with laws, there are still miscegenation laws on the books someplace forbidding interracial marriages . You can't marry a person unless they are of legal age. You can't be married to more than one wife at a time and you can't have more than one wife at a time.

so define marriage as a union between two consenting adults and all will be well.

Carrie Prejean Miss California won.... right?

It seems in all the commotion over Carrie Prejean's statements about gay marriage we seemed to have forgotten who won Miss USA 2009. Not that I care about beauty pageants they started to lose their luster a long time ago, that is why they started letting black women win to drum up interest. But Carrie has received more attention for the controversy than the real winner Kristen Jeannine Dalton from North Carolina has. here is the question and answer so you can judge for yourself.

pageant judge Perez Hilton asked whether she believed every U.S. state should legalize same-sex marriage

She responded, "Well I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one way or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. You know what, in my country, in my family, I do believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, no offense to anybody out there. But that’s how I was raised and I believe that it should be between a man and a woman

Ratchet and Clank Toys

It has been a long time coming, a really long time coming but the wait is almost over. Years after debuting on the PlayStation 2 the Ratchet&Clank franchise are finally getting toys. DC Direct will be making them.

Some time in 2010 you will be able to own your own Lombax or Clank or even Captain Qwark. They would make a good gift for fans of the series.
