They should Repeal Sodomy Laws. I mean it means different things in different states and these days it just proves that the old guard conservatives are still in control. I mean take a little responsibility even if you don't apologize for treatment of people different ... go ahead and clear the laws against consensual sex.

And they should clean up the U.C.M.J. in the military too. Sodomy means something different in the military as I understand it. I think it means penetration, anything other than normal intercourse between a man & a woman to include a part of the hand or whatever.

I think everyone will breath a sigh of relief when we get controlling Patriarchs & Matriarchs Out of Politics.

What right do they have to Legislate Morality?

What right does the Conservative, Religious, Right Wing have to legislate Morality? Most Law has to do with Property and Tort. Someone has to be harmed to justify a Law. So their is no justification to say that native Americans can't use Marijuana or Peyote in their house or at parties or at religious ceremonies.

Drugs and Sex are mostly individual choice. There is no such thing as a consensual Crime.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consensual_crime

A consensual crime is a public order crime that involves more than one participant, all of whom give their consent as willing participants in an activity that is unlawful. Legislative bodies and interest groups sometimes rationalize the criminalization of consensual activity because they feel it offends cultural norms, or because one of the parties to the activity is considered a "victim" despite their informed consent.[1]

It's the truth and you know it is, DM.

You should spend your time pretending you have some friends in the world.

OWS needs activists. Not pretenders. You are doing what the 1% do, by manufacturing consent.

You've already been busted for doing it, and you're still doing it, you dickhead.

Sign petition to repeal DOMA

http://www.repealdoma.com/?campaign=DSCC

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (27542) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

This is it.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court is finally hearing arguments on the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). If you think it’s wrong to deny basic rights to LGBT Americans, now’s the time to say it.

Help us get to 100,000 strong calling on the Supreme Court to overturn DOMA: Click here to automatically sign your name >>

Under DOMA, same-sex couples are denied over 1,000 protections and responsibilities automatically guaranteed to married heterosexual couples. It’s just wrong. Every family deserves the benefits of equal protection under the law, and all Americans deserve the right to marry the person they love.

This movement for equality is growing larger every day. If we keep the pressure on, marriage equality could be a reality by this summer.

Let’s make this happen.

Democrats 2014

It's a form of tyranny, but no one thinks of it as such.

They can't seem to understand, how it's the acceptance of all of these little bits of tyranny, that in the final analysis, make it impossible to avoid the bigger bits that they do notice.

Thx. I upvoted you (as always) since you were downvoted immediately.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6441) from Phoenix, AZ 1 year ago

I think the mods should remove the "stinkle" all together if you don't like something keep reading there always something else, if you do give it a twinkle, it would "settle down" the site quite a bit i think they should remove all "stinkle" votes from system going back to beginning:

http://occupywallst.org/forum/i-suggest-the-mods-remove-the-stinkle-and-its-affe/

If post is "anti-OWS" then replace with "report" button and let Mods remove such posts they do that anyway.

[-] 0 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

Good ideas. Anything off thread topic, or personal attack can be flagged or removed.

I would support the "no stinkle" proposal though. I'm constantly downvoted. And I say many anti repubs attacked mercilessly, & constantly.

The numbers are less important than the abusive, obscene, personal attacks, which never results in much mod action.

[-] 3 points by factsrfun (6441) from Phoenix, AZ 1 year ago

current system supports petty conflicts which IMHO is anti-OWS in nature I think the many reasons people downvote makes it less useful as data, to me what is important is the ideals people support that way we could build something, I think anyway.

I also would like to be able to upvote posts as well as comments

[-] 0 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago
