Election is in the bag, but what about gay marriage?

I live in California, and, while others across the country are interested in the ban on gay marriage amendment in California, I have voted on the proposition and have been following it on and off over the last few hours here. I voted against the addition to the CA constitution. I do not feel that allowing two gay men or women to marry infringes on anyone's rights. However, I do think that not allowing gay marriage fosters feelings of invalidation in certain people.

Also, I am probably a little hostile towards a certain portion of Christians, a portion who may find gay marriage extremely aggravating. I love all (to my knowledge) of the Christians who come here and know many extremely pleasant Christians (my grandparents, mother, quite a few acquaintances) and do not intend to direct any anger or hostility towards you.

I am feeling as though this post will lead to the end of the election crap on this site. I have some feelings of good riddance.

Based on the futures, it looks like tomorrow will be a slightly positive day. Though, I would not be surprised if the market exhibited signs of uncertainty. We now have a Democrat as President--and likely what many may consider a sharp turn from the previous administration (personally, I am not sure if we will experience as much "change" as the candidate proposes and the country hopes for). On the other hand, I would not be surprised if the markets already factored into the price a good portion of the election results. I mean, the outcome wasn't a complete mystery.

More, hopefully, tomorrow.

PS: SOL is doing extremeley well (and it should outperform earnings estimates on November 18). If you want some other solar ideas take a look at SolarEarnings.com.

Thanks for the solar link. Its definitely useful. Sol is rocking - i sold all my stocks though I still hold one Apr 12 call. I might buy more if it dips.

I really don't understand what's wrong with letting two people live their life together. There shouldn't be any ban on gay marriages. The good thing about usa is at least now a days gay people can live freely and don't have to live an anonymous life as in many other countries. So, that, at least, is a good sign.
Here is a funny clip for you(seinfeld Season 4 Epside 16 - The shoes) if you got some spare time

Sorry for the slow reply. I can't believe SOL did so well in such a short period of time. I'm loving it.

As for the gay marriage issue, the ban passed by such a small margin, I don't think it would pass in the future should it ever appear on the ballot again.

That Seinfeld clip is hilarious! Sounds like a situation I would find myself in...heh.
