A medical power of attorney solves that issue, married or not I would think.

It should and usually does, but (just like wills) they can be fought by a family member and if you don't have it in hand in an emergency, some docs/hospitals will not take your word for it.  If a "real" family member is around, they will get to make the decisions.
I had a copy of my medical power of attorney in my medical file with all my doctors and any hospital that I ever went to for some much as a test, just to ensure that it be on file for Sid if he ever needed it.  Marriage does it make more "sure", as I've never heard of anyone being asked to produce a marriage certificate in an emergency.

So True . The case in Alabama that is going to federal court is about two guys married in Boston Mass. … they had power of attorneys and marriage license and living will but when one of them was dieting in the hospital it was not enough to convince the staff and the guys didn’t get the farewell or dignity they deserved . Nothing short of equality will stop things like this from happening .

My dowry has gone up and down, over the last decade.  It is back up, with a lot of growth.  I think you'll be very pleased, when you deposit it.  I hope it all fits into your account, without you having to report it as in-come. 

Ok, I was really stretching it-- no pun intended.

I just read this reply to a right wing christian on a message board and it was so full of win I had to share it ...


The typical line from the religious side of the same sex marriage issue goes something like this: “stop shoving your gay agenda down our throats”. In the same breath, they go on to say, “You don’t see us shoving our religion down your throat”.

Well then…

Have you ever had a homosexual knock on your door (usually around dinner time) asking if you have found Elton John?

Have homosexuals ever passed laws that make the government print “In Homosexuality We Trust” on your money?

When was the last time homosexuals passed a law that rewrote the Pledge of Allegiance to say, “One Homosexual Nation”?

Have homosexuals erected a monument with Marc Jacobs’ top 10 fashion commandments at your local courthouse?

Have any homosexual groups spent millions trying to pass laws to outlaw marriage between a woman and a man?

Have homosexual activists worked to pass laws limiting birth control, abortion, etc?

Did a homosexual ever prevent you from buying liquor or a car on Sunday?

Is there a book promoting homosexuality in almost every hotel room in the country?

Have homosexuals pushed for laws to make the missionary position illegal?

Have homosexuals tried to pass a law allowing them to legally refuse service to Christians?

When was the last time you saw a group of homosexuals protest at a Marine’s funeral carrying signs that say God hates Christians?

This is what they call keeping their religion to themselves? Sheesh…

In Alabama, in response to some courthouse employees refusing to perform marriage ceremonies for anyone now. From what I gather, the parking lot of the courthouse hosted others like her willing to perform ceremonies for one and all.


Reality is frequently inaccurate.

Does Roy Moore allow Alabama residents to say "cock"?  Surely your constitution says you will burn in hell for thinking such things.....

Unfortunately the constitution of Alabama is chock full of embarrassing things still. I think it still states that segregated schools are A-OK.

This article from The Atlantic does a good job of explaining away Alabama. 

Of course my inner voice dismisses it all as simple backwoods bigotry.

What a fucking embarrassment regardless of the subject matter. Only Alabama and Mississippi would try stunts like this -- even South Carolina buckled appropriately.

The chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court insisted Thursday he will continue to resist efforts to implement same-sex marriage in his state, even if the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage later this year.

Chief Justice Roy Moore likened an eventual U.S. Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage to the Dred Scott ruling and Plessy v. Ferguson, two 19th century Supreme Court rulings that upheld slavery and segregation, respectively.

"If it's an unlawful mandate you can refuse to mandate it. You can dissent to the United States Supreme Court," Moore said in a testy interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day." "I will follow the law as I interpret it."

Its Alabama and Miss., would you expect anything different LOL .

For those who do not remember Judge Roy Moore was already thrown out of office for refusing to obey the federal courts and I expect he may be thrown out again… and then reelected .

I live in this god awful state and will be the first to admit that Alabama deserves every bit of crap it gets … it seems to work hard to earn it, thats for sure . I want to stay in this state to help care for my Ma who has Alzheimer’s but the sad part is I may not have it in me to move away again the way my health is going these days.

Roy Moore should not only be impeached, but he should also be disbarred.  He is showing such a transparent disregard to the rule of law, that his standing as on officer of the court is gone. 
If he gets disbarred, one must assume that, EVEN in Alabama, he would be ineligible to run for any judgeship.
Not to mention, I am sure that Moore would have gladly enforced both Dred Scott and Plessy vs. Fergusson.  So an "unlawful mandate" is only seen from his POV........  ::)  Virginia is not, by any stretch, the most progressive state -- but at least it ain't Alabamy

My favorite part of that was …
Proverbs says "put a knife to your throat if you are given to appetite." Been to the Golden Corral lately?

It goes on to say "be not among drunkards or among gluttonous eaters of meat."

But Alabama is the second fattest state in a fat America.

Justice Ginsberg admitted some wine with dinner is what caused her to nod off during the State of the Union.  She had dinner with Justice Kennedy and he brought wine. She said Justice Souter use to give her a pinch, when she began to fall asleep.  Of course, some in comment sections are now questioning her ability to rule on cases.

I love her honesty.  Best story I read this week.
