An exert from a great article on this subject.

"First off, what is marriage? To traditionalists, marriage is the joining of a man and a woman, as ordained by God. To secularists, and as a practical matter, marriage is a civil contract between two people. Marriage provides for such things as the transfer of wealth between spouses, visitation and other rights when a spouse is ill or dying, the sharing of common assets, and the distribution of those assets in the event of divorce.

The practical aspects of marriage are things all people should be free to do without the government’s blessing. People have the natural right to assemble and associate as they will, and that includes contracts for the sharing of assets. They have the right to handle their bodies as they will, including assigning those rights in the event of their incapacitation. They have the right to transfer their wealth to whomever they want without penalty. The government is not giving such rights to married couples; it is denying those natural rights to everyone else.

There are more unmarried straight people who need to exercise these natural rights than there are gay couples, but for some reason the Old Time Media only focuses on gay-rights. Rather than campaign for the lifting of the government restrictions on all people, the gay-rights movement just sought to get under the marriage umbrella.

Speaking frankly, I thought willyt's initial post was funnier than hell...guess I don't have a horse in that race.

But, I gotta disagree with aquaman. If you are going to exercise your right to put your opinion out in public, you gotta let others exercise their rights to comment on them. If you're too much of a p---y to have someone disagree with you, then climb back under your rock.

I firmly agree with your statements here Frank. Everyone can exercise their Freedom of Speech and allow replies. However, most of the controversy and why this all happened was because of the government officials in certain cities that flat out said; based on your beliefs, don't ever plan to build in my town because I will block it. That's the real issue related to this situation. IMO..

Just further proof of the lefts hypocrisy. If anyone disagrees with their agenda they are accused of being a “homophobe” a “bigot” or “hateful”. People calmly went to Chik Fil A and stood in line for hours just to so show their support. Then the leftist go out and vandalize a store, harass the employees, and stage a “kiss-in”. Since when are people not allowed to have a difference of opinion?? If you are gay, I DON’T CARE!!!

Well…..I did have a guy show up to ski one day wearing a speed-o. I kindly asked him not to wear that thing again.:rolleyes:

I wonder why he assumed that all of Chck Fil-A employees have the same opinion. Statistically, it would be improbable that all of them see Cathey's comment in the same way or agree with it.

There's far too much mis-placed anger and it's going to get ugly pretty soon because people are just not able to control themselves.

CP - you are so right.... But it was a chance some "free" politicking... Funny in Saudi you get killed for being homosexual - but that is not being politicized for the same reason...hmmmm. It's too bad that running the country does not mean 80% logic and 20% politics....unfortunately the inverse is true.

On a side note...

Somebody who can doctor up the "Toonces the driving cat" video, should put their favorite politician's face in this video and put it on their facebook or backup on you tube... and also modify the car to represent our country and economy.

For now we'll have to settle for "Toonces the Driving Cat" going over a cliff.

It could be argued that the financial condition of a country is directly related to the value of life of its citizens. Look at Greece and what happened there, we are much worse off....exponentially worse off. If we don't make drastic changes soon, the question isn't if the bus goes off the cliff, but when and how many months away. Fundamental life values will take a back seat to getting by if things don't change.

If the apple rots from the inside, I guess I'm way on the outside and the whole apple will have been thrown away before my portion will have become rotten.

What about the college students and recent grads who are absolutely certain of who we should vote for? Most have never supported themselves, yet they think they have it all figured out.

I think the voting age should be raised to 30, so they can find out how it really is before they shoot off their mouths, telling us what we should think, just because their professors have brainwashed them.:firejump:

Subject: Great letter

To All My Valued Employees,

There have been some rumblings around the office about the future of this company, and more specifically, your job. As you know, the economy has changed for the worse and presents many challenges. However, the good news is this: The economy doesn't pose a threat to your job.

What does threaten your job however, is the changing political landscape in this country. Of course, as your employer, I am forbidden to tell you whom to vote for - it is against the law to discriminate based on political affiliation, race, creed, religion, etc.

Please vote for who you think will serve your interests the best. However, let me tell you some little tidbits of fact which might help you decide what is in your best interest. First, while it is easy to spew rhetoric that casts employers against employees, you have to understand that for every business owner there is a back story.

This back story is often neglected and overshadowed by what you see and hear. Sure, you see me park my Mercedes outside. You saw my big home at last year’s Christmas party. I'm sure all these flashy icons of luxury conjure up some idealized thoughts about my life. However, what you don't see is the back story.

I started this company 12 years ago. At that time, I lived in a 300 square foot studio apartment for 3 years. My entire living space was converted into an office so I could put forth 100% effort into building a company, which by the way, would eventually employ you.

My diet consisted of Ramen Pride noodles because every dollar I spent went back into this company. I drove a rusty Toyota Corolla with a defective transmission. I didn't have time to date. Often times, I stayed home on weekends, while my friends went out drinking and partying. In fact, I was married to my business -- hard work, discipline, and sacrifice.

Meanwhile, my friends got jobs. They worked 40 hours a week and made a modest $50K a year and spent every dime they earned. They drove flashy cars and lived in expensive homes and wore fancy designer clothes. Instead of hitting Nordstrom's for the latest hot fashion item, I was trolling through the Goodwill store extracting any clothing item that didn't look like it was birthed in the 70's.

My friends refinanced their mortgages and lived a life of luxury. I, however, did not. I put my time, my money, and my life into a business --- with a vision that eventually, some day, I too, will be able to afford these luxuries my friends supposedly had.

So, while you physically arrive at the office at 9 am, mentally check in at about noon, and then leave at 5 pm, I don't. There is no "off" button for me. When you leave the office, you are done and you have a weekend all to yourself. I unfortunately do not have the freedom. I eat, ****, and breathe this company every minute of the day. There is no rest. There is no weekend. There is no happy hour. Every day this business is attached to me like a 1 day old baby.

You, of course, only see the fruits of that garden -- the nice house, the Mercedes, the vacations... You never realize the back story and the sacrifices I've made. Now, the economy is falling apart and I, the guy that made all the right decisions and saved his money, have to bail out all the people who didn't.

The people that overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed a decade of my life for. Yes, business ownership has its benefits but the price I've paid is steep and not without wounds. Unfortunately, the cost of running this business, and employing you, is starting to eclipse the threshold of marginal benefit and let me tell you why:

I am being taxed to death and the government thinks I don't pay enough. I have state taxes. Federal taxes. Property taxes. Sales and use taxes. Payroll taxes. Workers compensation taxes. Unemployment taxes. Taxes on taxes. I have to hire a tax man to manage all these taxes and then guess what? I have to pay taxes for employing him. Government mandates and regulations and all the accounting that goes with it, now occupy most of my time. On Oct 15th, I wrote a check to the US Treasury for $288,000 for quarterly taxes. You know what my "stimulus" check was? Zero. Nada. Zilch.

The question I have is this: Who is stimulating the economy? Me, the guy who has provided 14 people good paying jobs and serves over 2,200,000 people per year with a flourishing business? Or, the single mother sitting at home pregnant with her fourth child waiting for her next welfare check?

Obviously, government feels the latter is the economic stimulus of this country. The fact is, if I deducted (Read: Stole) 50% of your paycheck you'd quit and you wouldn't work here. I mean, why should you? That's nuts. Who wants to get rewarded only 50% of their hard work? Well, I agree which is why your job is in jeopardy. Here is what many of you don't understand .. to stimulate the economy you need to stimulate what runs the economy. Had suddenly government mandated to me that I didn't need to pay taxes, guess what? Instead of depositing that $288,000 into the Washington black-hole, I would have spent it, hired more employees, and generated substantial economic growth. My employees would have enjoyed the wealth of that tax cut in the form of promotions and better salaries. But you can forget it now.

When you have a comatose man on the verge of death, you don't defibrillate and shock his thumb thinking that will bring him back to life, do you? Or, do you defibrillate his heart? Business is at the heart of America and always has been. To restart it, you must stimulate it, not kill it. Suddenly, the power brokers in Washington believe the mud of America are the essential drivers of the American economic engine.

Nothing could be further from the truth and this is the type of change you can keep. So where am I going with all this? It's quite simple. If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, my reaction will be swift and simple. I fire you. I fire your co-workers. You can then plead with the government to pay for your mortgage, your SUV, and your child's future. Frankly, it isn't my problem anymore. Then, I will close this company down, move to another country, and retire.

You see, I'm done. I'm done with a country that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, will be my citizenship.

While tax cuts to 95% of America sounds great on paper, don't forget the back story: If there is no job, there is no income to tax. A tax cut on zero dollars is zero. So, when you make decision to vote, ask yourself, who understands the economics of business ownership and who doesn't? Whose policies will endanger your job? Answer those questions and you should know who might be the one capable of saving your job. While the media wants to tell you "It's the economy Stupid" I'm telling you it isn't.

If you lose your job, it won't be at the hands of the economy; it will be at the hands of a political hurricane that swept through this country, steamrolled the Constitution, and will have changed its landscape forever. If that happens, you can find me in the South Caribbean sitting on a beach, retired, and with no employees to worry about.

"He didn't do that, someone else did it for him".

As a one-person business owner, I'd like to know who did this for me. I thought I was the one learned enough to know what I'm doing, who came up with the business plan, figured out what I would need to do what I do, paid for it, bought the cargo van last year to replace the truck that I had bought previously, gained the trust of the potential customers so I could get the jobs in the first place and then have them refer others to me, do all of the admin, go to training, buy/replenish parts, supplies, tools and equipment, etc.

Thank you, whoever you are.
