Re: “Rep. Marsha Blackburn Against D.C.'s Same-Sex Marriage Law

After receiving 33 letters from the FEC regarding possible reporting errors since Blackburn first ran for Congress in 2002, the campaign committee undertook its own internal audit, handled by Don McGahn, who has been nominated to become an FEC Commissioner. The review showed that the campaign had failed to file correct FEC reports since Rep. Blackburn first ran for office in 2002. The committee had received over $100,000 in unreported contributions, including a $1,000 contribution from former Rep. Duke Cunningham's campaign committee and had failed to report $286,000 in expenditures, including nearly $19,000 paid to Blackburn's own daughter. Blackburn was forced to file amendments to all 32 previously filed FEC reports.

Marsha Blackburn really shouldn't be worried about what other people are doing in their private lives. I think she has enough to worry about in her own.

Re: “The Rant

MrKite Where exactly have you used any reason and logic? I have yet to see ONE reasonable or logical argument against same sex marriage.

Re: “The Rant

Am I the only one around here who actually paid attention in my high school government class? The marriage of two homosexuals in California affects us, even if we never meet them. Article IV, Section I of the Constitution, more commonly known as the full faith and credit clause, states that one state must recognize the unions given to couples by other states. So, if those two people, whom we have never met, get married in California then all of a sudden one of them accepts a better job in Memphis, Tennessee must recognize their union, even if we have a law that bans it. That’s why this issue matters. It is not a moral issue, at least not to all people. The issue is a fundamental states’ rights issue. If our citizen’s do not want to recognize the union of two homosexuals, they should not have to. That’s why it is our business. Well that is exactly what your state said about mixed race marriage for many years until the Federal Government said YOU COULDN'T do that. If your only concern is that your state has a right to bigotry, then you're wrong.

Re: “The Rant

MickeyWhite seems a bit confused about several things. First all why do you worry so much about a same sex couple getting marriage a "tax break" that they would both get if they married opposite sex partners? What has the gender of the person they marry got to do with it? Same sex couples who are NOT allowed to marry are paying YOUR way now. As far as families go, gender is not the issue. A strong family can be a mother and father, an aunt and her two nieces, two grandparents and their grandchildren. The mere fact of a 51% divorce rate proves that male and female are not necessarily the answer. The fact is everyone is "forced" to accept your marriage choice so why are you so much better than someone who wants a same sex partner. Last I heard, America was for ALL of its citizens. I agree with the rant, stay out of other people's business!
