    So far, at least 3 republican presidential aspirants from the South - Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, and Bobby Gindal) have said they support officials who refuse to obey court orders based on their conscience. Except that they are of a different party, it's just like Alabama's Gov. Wallace, Mississippi's Ross Barnett, and can we remember Lester Maddox? Then it was segregation. Now it's same sex-marriage. By supporting lawlessness, they should lose all credibility. But they won't. Their supporters probably eat it up. Who cares about law? They haven't had a good lynching to watch in a long time.

    That's probably what it all boils down to. They just want a group of people to lynch (or kill in other ways) to satisfy their bloodlust. Once the commotion of marriage equality settles, they'll probably turn their focus to fat people...because Jesus.

    Good question. It's underlined with a red squiggly line, but it should be one word so I spelled it that way and ignored spellcheck.

    My online dictionary and spell checker make it one word. I do not get a red correction line.

    Remember, the right wing, pre and post SCOTUS ruling (spin doctors aka faux news channel) go around using the term "lawlessness" to describe their "judicial tyranny" argument. According to the republicans and their right wing, president Obama is "lawless" for using his executive powers instead of letting the republican controlled congress muck shit up and pass stupid, conservative based laws that set our country back 50 years. Just more of the same hypocrisy and spin we see daily from the right

    The republican term "lawlessness" is verbal diarrhea, if the shit hit the fan, going the other direction, duck and cover icon_rolleyes.gif

    Speaking of being in the 21st century you missed the boat on Huckabee (Arkansas) and Rand (Kentucky). Neither state is considered part of "The South" in The South.

    You're confusing it with The Dixie States of the confederacy and it's sympathizing states during the Civil War.

    If you define "The South" by the Mason Dixon Line don't forget to include Maryland and Ohio. They were considered south of it at the time of the Civil War.

    Well, they are so considered by us northerners.

    Most of them haven't progressed past the Civil War.

    Generally speaking most people who make generalizations like that don't know what the fuck they are talking about. You ought to visit the south and find out how wrong you are.

    Fine by me. It's good to see that being ignorant isn't just a southern thing as it is considered to be by a majority of you northerners.

    Most are still living in the 19th century so maybe circa 2100.
