As Seen On The Bathroom Wall

The best ideas come while sitting on the pot.

So take away their marriages.

as long as you give them back their money, too.

Supporters of Proposition 8 are pushing for the more than 18k marriages to be dissolved/nullified, which is quite hypocritical when you think of it. Supporters of MARRIAGE want annulments for over 36k people.

Well, that's fine. Of course, in return, the state and counties need to refund all of these couples their marriage license fees, the tax dollars accrued for the event costs, etc... Seems pretty reasonable and fair, right?

What does that amount to again? From my understanding, over $18 million dollars were earned from the state from taxes and fees alone. That doesn't include what the businesses themselves made. That has to go back, too, I'm afraid. Refund it all.

If anyone has a problem with that, you can take it up with your local Prop8 supporter. Marriage may mean a governmental union between one man and one woman now in the State of California, but it wasn't when these individuals got married. If you want to say they couldn't do it at all, retroactively, then they need to be reimbursed.

I hope you enjoy paying up and out. Just think of this as a lesson in fiscal responsibility. Don't want to pay? Don't try and deny people the very same rights you would demand for yourself.
