Clint Eastwood Signs Brief
Supporting Same-Sex Marriage

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Mike Flynn

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/28/2013 11:19:47 AM

Breitbart News has learned exclusively that Clint Eastwood has signed an amicus brief to the Supreme Court, supporting the right of same-sex couples to marry. The brief, which will be released later this evening, has signatures from more than 100 Republican and conservative activists. It involves the case before the Supreme Court, seeking to overturn CA´s Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state. A well-placed GOP source provided Breitbart News with an early glimpse of the brief. Whether same-sex couples should have access to civil marriage divides thoughtful, concerned citizens.

Comments:
I guess this means we have to accept the inevitable. s/o

I believe it´s time for the government to get out of the Marriage Business altogether. State governments should start issuing "civil union" licenses... then the recipients could take it to their church, wedding chapel, whatever, for further nuptials if they so desire.

Not even Clint Eastwood can make me change my mind that marriage is a man/woman thing.

What difference does it make?

Seriouisly, the lie-erals running things in Cubafornia are going to get exctly what they want -- the wishes of the people be damned!!! Either they will keep using the courts to their advantage, or they will find some other way to drag this out until they finally get the results they want.

These are truly the end times...

Yes, thank you, Mr. Eastwood for clarifying that the concept of "marriage" means absolutely nothing at all. Anyone can get married to whomever (or whomevers) they choose with no concern at all for the consequences. Why, first cousins, siblings, adults and children, just any combination at all should be allowed. Marriage is just such a nothing burger. And besides, who gives a baby rat´s bottom about the kids?

#5-The thought of same sex sex or same sex marriage is sickening! If you see nothing wrong with two men having sex in the manner queer men usually do,then you probably have homo leanings!!

I like Clint´s acting but why would I take his advice on morals? He was a cheat....cheated on his wife, cheated on his girlfriend...And same sex marriage is a moral issue.

Thank you Mr. Eastwood for being another idiot, wealthy Republican who is falling for the "look over here" moment of gay marriage while all Americans (that´s the gay ones too, sir) are struggling with a sinking economy, unprotected borders, loss of Constitutional rights (that are actually in the Constitution) and looming health care cuts.
Thanks for really drilling down and getting to the root of our country´s problems.
Thanks for nothing.

What percentage of the population is gay? Out of that percentages, what percentage will actually get married? The number is really very small.

I understand that lots of people have moral and religious objections and if that´s your view I understand that you have to fight it all the way.

Beyond that though, we are talking about a tiny, tiny portion of the population and it´s always frustrating to see the energy spent on this by both sides given the other issues we have to address.

Clint has cheated on his many wives and girlfriends. Abused a few as well. His opinion on marriage between 2 weird people means nothing.

Next up will be his friend Morgan Freeman saying it is ok with having sex with 12 year old step children - which he did.

#3: I´ve been saying the same thing for years. Why do clergy have to act as agents of the government when they officiate at weddings? Why does someone who´s been asked to officiate at a friend´s wedding (I´ve been to several of these and they´re lovely) have to go online and get some phony ordination to legally do so? It makes no sense and it goes against the notion of separation of church and state.

Civil unions for there business transaction of the union (and everyone would have to get this) and the ceremony of marriage can be as individual and personal as one likes. Between their church and them.

´´Marriage,´´ already has its definition, both by God and in America´s legal system. The shifting whims of WHATEVER is the Political Correctness de jeur in order to, ´´change,´
´ the definition of, ´´Marriage,´´ is like mixing apples & oranges with legislative gymnastics. Marriage is what it is.

Instead of attempting to tamper with & irresponsibly change the definition of marriage, the legislators need to address the particular legal issues of sincere concern, individually and by some other name... ´´Civil unions,´´ is an option which has already been suggested, but even that doesn´t cover every potential legal situation.

Society has a special interest in supporting marriage between a man and a woman. It takes a male and female to reproduce and replenish society´s citizens, and children need a nurturing environment to grow up into good citizens. Without this reproduction cycle society would die out, so the society has found it convenient to encourage marriage and children by making special provisions like tax exemptions for raising the new citizens.
Homosexuals can sign partnership agreements that give them survivor preferences or power of attorney in case of illness, etc.But giving their relationship the title of ´marriage´ does not really make sense unless it is to stroke their egos . Society does not benefit by their action since they do not reproduce.

#7 sounds like a 12-year old.

I am certainly not for gay marriage and think civil union makes more sense. But I also believe it´s a losing issue for Republicans. The usual parties will protest that the social conservative issues are what is harming the party, but that can´t be taken seriously.

I´ll pass over the unhelpful claims that anyone expressing opinions on this issue is secretly harboring homosexual philias or phobias. Marriage is a social institution that serves a social function. Society defines what marriage is and orders itself accordingly. Definitions, by their nature, decide what something is, and what it is not. For me, the three decisions are: 1. Will a compelling social interest be served by redefining marriage to afford heterosexual and homosexual relationships the same marital status? 2. What unintended social consequences might arise from this decision? 3. Specifically, how will the next petition to redefine marriage be dealt with? However much one hopes for happiness of individuals, and wishes them well, if man can marry man, marriage has changed. At some point it may change to point where everyone can have it, and no one values it. And a society where marriage has no value, has no future.

HHS outlines policy

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/14/2014 8:50:21 PM     Post Reply
Federal health officials dropped regulations late Friday outlining how they plan to help insurance companies stuck with unanticipated costs due to ObamaCare´s botched rollout. In a 279-page document, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) detailed adjustments to the healthcare law´s "risk corridors" program, a means for shifting money from insurers who fare better under the new system to those who fare worse. Risk corridors have been decried by conservatives as a bailout that could leave taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars. The administration said Friday that it will implement the program in a budget

The U.S. government on Friday announced it is taking steps to relinquish control over the back end of the Internet. The Department of Commerce announced it is beginning a process to transfer control over the technical system that operates the Internet’s domain name system, which ensures that Internet users can get to the websites they’re looking for. Currently, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration — an agency with Commerce — oversees that technical system, named the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). Historically, it has contracted the operation of IANA out to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number (ICANN) on a biennial

Nicolle Wallace, former adviser to the McCain-Palin 2008 presidential campaign who worked with Steve Schmidt, appeared on The View on Thursday and gushed over Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, and even Bill Clinton. Predictably, however, she trashed Sarah Palin. Wallace has tried to blame Palin for the incompetence she and the McCain team displayed during the 2008 campaign against then-Senator Barack Obama. The program played a clip from Game Change, which has been called out for numerous lies and inaccuracies, that allowed Wallace to whack Palin as someone who had a "gap in her knowledge" about issues.

Everyone in politics knows that big GOP donors, many of whom are wealthy businessmen, are, broadly speaking, one of the key constituencies for a major amnesty bill. But aside from the money trail, their interactions with lawmakers, which often occur at intimate closed-door fundraisers, can be hard to track. Enter Michael Simmonds, a restaurant entrepreneur in Omaha and a lifelong donor to Republican candidates in Nebraska. Simmonds has launched a behind-the-scenes crusade to push the candidates he´s supporting to back what he describes as “complete amnesty.” “I am applying a litmus test even it keeps me from supporting any

Republican Rep.

The letter to Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., top Democrat on that committee, was obtained by Fox News. In it, Issa countered, point by point, a series of claims that Cummings and two legal experts made earlier this week about whether former IRS official Lois Lerner could be held in contempt for refusing to testify.

WASHINGTON — A deep-pocketed group of Republican donors and former GOP lawmakers is joining a gay rights coalition to push the U.S. House to vote on a bill banning workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. "America is a place where the freedom to be who you are shouldn´t be a barrier to your ability to get a job and provide for your family," said Paul Singer, a billionaire hedge fund founder and big Republican donor.

The only reason to think President Obama would work with a Republican congressional majority is that he genuinely believes a policy is a good idea or thinks public opinion requires a compromise necessary to protect his legacy and keep the White House in Democratic hands. In other words, Republicans have reason to hope, but they shouldn’t expect too much change—at least not until 2017. McConnell’s assessment of what Republicans can accomplish the next two years will strike his fans as Madisonian realism, but it will come across as establishmentarian weakness to his detractors who are now waging a bitter primary

Staffers in the Diversity and Equity Center sent an invitation to all 300 employees of the taxpayer-funded school concerning a happy hour intended to “build support and community” for “people of color.” The invitation stated in no uncertain terms that white people could not attend. It instructed recipients with the right skin colors to reply seeking the

President Obama met with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in the Oval Office last night to discuss how to move forward on immigration reform, with one caucus member saying afterward that their pleas for executive action were heard. The meeting came after Obama threatened to veto two bills that passed in the House – the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014, which puts in place a procedure that would expedite the ability of Congress to sue the executive branch for failure to faithfully execute the laws, and the Faithful Execution of the Law Act of 2014, which expands the number

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges.
