    Today I am personally ashamed to call myself a San Franciscan and more importantly am ashamed of some of the aspects of being an American.

    When a public official is allowed to openly flaunt laws and the will of the people what is the difference between us and Stalinist Russia besides degree of severity?

    I hope that the courts stop issuing and then void all the permits that City Hall has issued and that the people who have falsely been given hope then turn around and lynch the dictator in the Mayor's office.

    We are seeing the continual downspiral of America right before our very eyes.

    what was the percentage of san fransiscans that were in favor of issuing the licenses and the percentage of those that weren't?

    perhaps the mayor was following the will of the people if the majority were in favor?

    This is specifically about the tragedy in San Francisco.

    I could be wrong, but I believe I just heard on the news that the same judge who threw out all of the objections has asked the attorneys to re-submit them again on Tuesday for further review.

    The belief seems to be that he will probably overturn the civil union judgement, making null and void those that have and will already taken place.

    Hold onto your drawers, OCA, your nightmare may be over next week.

    Well I don't have any specific numbers but even as ridiculously left as San Francisco is the majority are, and I feel safe in saying this, against gay marriages although the margins would be much more closer there. The feeling has always been live and let live and by and large it has worked as the gay population mostly sticks to the Castro-Polk district and does its own thing there. But this had to have been planned all along as this guy didn't campaign on this at all.

    There is nothing worse than having a taste of what you long for and then having it taken away....this could galvanize the activist...not a good thought..

    Yeah thats what I heard also but this is California, more specifically S.F. we're talking about here so its wait and see. In the meantime this bastard of a Mayor has the J.O.P. open tommorrow in order to get in as many as possible. Hell gays my friends are telling me are coming in from all over the state. They said S.F. INT. Airport is like a freaking gay pride parade.
