Now… which one is the gay couple?

Too difficult?

OK, here is a simpler one.

I am sure my readers are well aware of my two posts about "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (My Letter, Right To Serve).

Here is a picture of sailors "Manning The Rails."

So, which sailors are the gay ones?

Huh? Tough one there too...

A real thought provoker.

A marriage can be viewed as a contractual agreement between two parties that results in merger, which almost sounds with what takes place when companies merge. With this statement and the observation that Citizens United v. FEC (2010) ruled that corporations are afforded the same legal rights as people when it comes to campaign financing, then does that mean companies have to follow our laws? (cough BP!)

Now Texas has a constitutional amendment banning all marriages same-sex marriage. Since Texas has this stupid moronic dumbass blatantly homophobic Neanderthalic law on the books, does it mean that any company that has merged with another company of the same gender cannot do business as the merged company in this state?
