  1. Re: Jeb Bush: Constitution doesn't grant a"right" to gay marriage

    This has been a great thread in that it has forced me to think more thoroughly through the issue and its broader implications.

    I think I hit on the logic that works, at least for me.

    The...
  2. Re: Jeb Bush: Constitution doesn't grant a"right" to gay marriage

    Equal to what?

    If equal to the others, left to my own devices, I would have interpreted it strictly in 1954. But we're a bit past that now.
    (Note: read my post below. I've re-thought that...
  3. Re: Jeb Bush: Constitution doesn't grant a"right" to gay marriage

    I think we do have two separate sets of legalities for hetero vs. homo-sexual relationships.

    Your question about polygamous marriage is an interesting one. Why don't all 350,000,000 of us marry...
  4. Re: Jeb Bush: Constitution doesn't grant a"right" to gay marriage

    TW, I understand your argument that the 14th should be interpreted narrowly, and why.

    I just don't see two things:

    First, allowing differing levels of enforceability on different amendments...
  5. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    You're being charitable, MC. They raised enough to run the marginal out of pocket costs of maintaining the program for a limited period of time, What they raised doesn't cover:
    -- Tuition, room,...
  6. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    I still want to know how many UAB tickets were bought from the UAB Athletic Department, at face, by the end user.

    I live and work in Birmingham, and would be shocked if it were greater than 5,000....
  7. Re: Jeb Bush: Constitution doesn't grant a"right" to gay marriage

    I was really thinking more about rights to SSI survivor benefits, pension survivor benefits, life insurance annuities and 401k survivor benefits. All those are available to married couples, but...
  8. Re: Jeb Bush: Constitution doesn't grant a"right" to gay marriage

    Personally, I think it's an equal protection issue. We grant a lot of rights to married couples, particularly in regard to inheritance, and I think it's hard to deny those rights because the spouses...
  9. Re: What is the average cost of an Alabama football ticket?

    Depends on how you calculate the cost and the number of games.

    For cost, you could use just face value of tickets. But to get season tickets, you have to go through Tide Pride.

    You could use...
  10. Re: Study concludes shuttered football program at UAB made money

    Ask five accountants what 5 - 3 is. Don't hire the ones that say, "Two."

    Hire the one that says, "Gee. I don't know. What do you want it to be?"

    This is exactly what CSS did.
  11. Re: Interesting Outcome in UK. Implications for USA?

    I think my original question could have been phrased better. I wasn't meaning to ask if the UK elections would affect ours, but rather if there were parallels that could teach us something about our...
  12. Re: Season ticket wait list (getting closer...)

    I don't know how long it will take if you simply sit back and let time pass. I do know that you can accelerate the process if you start making donations.

    Hard to say how much money will move you...
  13. Interesting Outcome in UK. Implications for USA?

    In the UK elections, Conservatives voted a lot better than they polled. Their Prime Monister is expected to veer right in policy.

    Do you think this has any relevance for the 2016 US elections? ...
  14. Re: Love Her Or Hate Her, Hillary Has A Major Problem -- And So Do Lots Of Others

    I agree that Clinton was the exception. Disagree on the reason. Bush I wins in a runaway if Perot doesn't insist on tilting at windmills. Perot cost Bush a lot; Clinton almost nothing.

    Even...
  15. Re: Love Her Or Hate Her, Hillary Has A Major Problem -- And So Do Lots Of Others

    That is a problem, because the Republicans haven't really focused their attention on her yet. It's been mainly the press (I can't believe I just wrote those words).

    Thing is, the Republicans...
