    ...I've seen Sex in the City 2 and I assume that all gay marriage ceremonies and receptions will be like that one.

    Just like a typical DUmmy thinking everything they see on tv is real.

    I doubt that equal marriage rights will make much of an economic difference in New York. However, I think it would be the smartest thing that Florida could do right now. Having a state in the sunbelt with equal marriage rights would be much more likely to have an economic impact. Sure, Florida already has more than its share of gay people, but it also has a lot of slack in the housing market. The combination of equal marriage rights and inexpensive housing in a good climate could cause a mass exodus from the Gay centers in the North and West.

    What a load of crap. How is marriage by two queers going to improve the housing market. Nothing is stopping them from buying a house together and making each-other beneficiary in case of death. You ever heard of the marriage tax. When my ex and I split. I filed single and she filed head of household. We came out thousand of dollars to the good rather than filing married. You do not know what the fuck you are talking about. It is all about social engineering with queers like you.

    all gay marriage in New York means is that now there will be a higher percentage of divorces.

    so yeah...if you count all the money lawyers will make, the economy will improve....in that area.

    Plus, these fruits will be in for a surprise when they file their state income taxes as a married couple. Ha, ha dummies.

    So let me get this straight. Two queers living together or in separate houses moves southward and buy a house. Um, what happened to the houses they left? Did they magically disappear off the housing market? Your logic is rather screwed up. Plus, you just do not pick up and move to an new area unless you have a job. Also, quite a few of those depressed housing markets may have high crime rates and surely sky high unemployment. You see, there is a reason that those houses are cheap.

    But not all of this housing slack are in places people want to live. Some is (like the apartment buildings that sit vacant across from Dadeland mall), but some isn't (Haynes City). . . I don't know if gay people can pull the South Beach treatment on all that empty space in, but the mini gay exodus (har) that you speak of could mean that $7500/month will get you more than a walk in closet with heat in NYC.

    I wasn't actually thinking about Haynes City. Teh Faboo is only so strong. I meant that the exiles could pull the slack out of the coastal markets.

    I myself, would consider living inland, if I could sell this GD house. I'd like a farm. I could grow trade.
