    Haven't you seen the t-shirts with Uncle Sam taking a bite out of the globe with the slogan, "Try and stop us!"?

    Kinda self-explanatory.

    You, my friend, are a glutton for punishment.

    No, this is how the threads usually go: Someone has a topic he wants to talk about, Panzer makes a comment and the rest of the time the discussion is about Panzer's quote. That is annoying

    I don't know, but the Roman Way was a pub in Kilburn, if that helps?

    An honest question by one individual - with the typicial anti-american comments coming from the peanut gallery.

    However [b]Ser's[b] reference does a short concise explantion of what the concept is.

    Close, but let me correct that for you:

    The American Way:

    "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, unless you are gay, in which case you should be ashamed of your filthy, abnormal self and stay in the closet where you belong if you don't have the decency to suppress your sexual identity and marry and have kids while making both you and your spouse miserable because of your burning repressed sexuality."

    Oh, wait.. I got mixed up.

    That's the Republican Way.

    My bad...

    Ah should I call you anti-american for that comment Goofball. And actually American's who are gay have the exact same rights that I have as an American Citizen. To include the ability to have consensual sex with any adult partner that they chose - except of course in public - where the laws of the United States would prosecute both the homosexual couple the same as the hetrosexual couple.

    So yep you are being very bad.

    They can, just not to anybody that they have even the remotest sexual attraction to. Actually, I hear many conservative marriages are pretty much that way, so maybe it's not discrimination.



    Man, I got a million of 'em today! The hits just keep on coming!

    Its really rather simple - marriage is a contract with legal obligations and is licensed by the state.

    A right does not require a license or a contract.

    Not sure of the exact date, if I had to guess probably after 1997 or so. And it's not exactly official either. Some writers use the old truth justice and american way other use truth justice and freedom for all. I know that Grant Morrisson always used and freedom for all in JLA.
