  • Otter is such a putz! The people of a state can not vote to deprive any of it's citizens their basic rights under the constitution!

    Glad to see you doing a blog on this! I asked that my blog be reopened but never got an answer.

  • Hi Roy

    I've been going to write a blog forever. My old computer died and I have always used Live Writer and my new computer has windows 8 and I guess Live Writer isn't compatible with it, couldn't get it to work right. Then I remembered I have an old laptop I barely use and bingo it has live writer. I am now back in the business of writing blogs.

    Otter can't seem to except change on any thing all he does is appeal appeal appeal. Costing tax payers more money.

  • Great blog! I haven't checked this out but my son says that Otter spent $400,000 of taxpayer money trying to fight a losing battle against marriage equality. He needs to retire.

  • He spent $400,000 trying to uphold the state constitution. Right or wrong, part of his job. Did not say I agree with it but do not disagree either.

  • He also spend money to stop Obamacare and rejected extending Medicaid for the poor people of our state. He was elected for the people by the people however chooses what people he wants to help.

  • Ms.M, I used Livewriter on my 8.1 windows. The upgrade is free if you haven't done it yet. As for Otter wasting money, that is nothing new. Ideology trumps common sense and decency.

  • Roy I have a new computer, windows live writer didn't come with it. I tried downloading it and in order for me to use it i will have to configure it and in order for me to do that I need to know what type of blogging the paper has. Joy kindly gave me some info about how to install it, however I tried and I still can't get it to work properly. I'll keep trying but until I get it figured out my old laptop works fine for now.

    Ok, I'm not saying anything about this except a question. Were is the line drawn now? Can someone marry their truck, dog, have multiple spouses, or other? I'm all for not discriminating and now that the liberals got their wish and redefined marriage are they going to support the people that love their trucks or dogs? Just asking a question to see how tolerant the people fighting so hard for this are....I mean really are or is it all hot air?

  • Trouble, since "marriage" is a legal contract between two consenting adults, your question about trucks and dogs seems a bit absurd. Now onto polygamy. The federal government first stuck it's nose into "marriage" when it forced Utah to ban polygamy in order to join the union. There are a few states that allow adult incest as long as the parties can no longer have children. A truly smaller and less intrusive government has no business getting involved when it comes to consenting adults entering into a legal contract. Churches can make their own rules when it comes to the ceremonies they perform.

    I hope this clears things up.

  • Two consenting human adults, not an adult truck or an adult dog. Ha, ha.

  • Trouble Nice to see you back

    If you want to Marry your Truck,or dog I think you have that choice, however not sure if its legal yet. Maybe you can start a protest! lol!

    As for multiple spouses, i do believe that still is illegal unless you divorce one and then marry another.

    I don't think the decision for them to marry was exclusive to the liberals, there are some conservatives I'm sure who are behind closed doors.

    Roy, as you pointed out things change such as definitions. Marriage used to be between to consenting adults (man and women) now it is just two consenting adults as it has recently been redefined by some. What I'm trying to point out is that the slippery slop has started and the definition of marriage can be redefined again and again. Who is to say were the line is drawn now that the gods in black robes have spoken?

  • Trouble, matrimony will always be defined by various churches. Marriage, since it is a civil contract, will always be defined by the state, that is how things are when you don't live in a theocracy. Since contracts can only be entered into by humans that are legally able to consent and or companies and can't be for the purpose of committing a fraud, then realistically any civil marriage contract should be available.
