Early indications suggest the Republic of Ireland has voted to legalise same-sex marriage in a historic referendum.
More than 3.2m people were asked whether they wanted to amend the country's constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.
Government ministers have said they believe it will pass, while prominent "no" campaigners have conceded defeat.
Counting started at 09:00 BST on Saturday morning. An "unusually high" turnout has been reported.
A result is expected by mid to late afternoon on Saturday.
If the change is approved, the Republic of Ireland would become the first country to legalise same-sex marriage through a popular vote.
Minister for Equality Aodhan O Riordain said on Twitter: "I'm calling it. Key boxes opened. It's a yes. And a landslide across Dublin. And I'm so proud to be Irish today."
So now the white house is calling for students to 'help' Obama! Does this White House have ANY boundries? This is the lowest of low that a sitting president has stooped too. However in this case remember he also bowed to Islamic slime who is also out to destroy the United States.This attempt to propagandize children and then create a school curriculum under the teacher's directive to turn it in as an assigned piece of school work to be graded on most probably is an insult to parents authority over their children, a move no doubt given the nod of approval by the NEA and Teacher's Unions. Again Joseph Goebbels would be proud of the action to copy the methodology of Nazi Germany. Shame...Shame...Shame on the white house and BHO!!!Talk about humiliation! Wonder what Obama's girls will experience when they go back to school? Will anyone make fun of them because of their father's actions? This is so stupid, to try to enlist the children in his army of believers, to challenge their parents to go along to get along!Obama is exploding right before our eyes. His liberal advisors and socialistic Czars (or worse) are influencing him as much as Rev. Wright did. He should fire them all and settle down to listen to the American public and become the President they thought he would be - doubt if he will do it though!Keep tuned in for the next edition of fiascos in the Obama Administration. He is just feeling his way around trying to rule between vacations.Obama would be more advised to stay on the golf course and not step beyond his abilities to run this country.What a mistake many voters made!We are finally awakening from a nightmare called Obama! When and how will this end?
beckgrady asked:'When and how will this end?'In your case I'd venture to say with a whimper and not a bang.President Obama and the rest of us should do just fine.
He completely lost me when he equated Obama with Hitler... ahem Hitler's top political lieutenant.
So now the white house is calling for students to 'help' Obama! Does this White House have ANY boundries?You've got it wrong, b-grady. It asked to help the president. The President of the United States of America represents all of the people, in case you've forgotten. There is nothing wrong in asking people, children even, to help the president, since it means helping America. You got something against helping America?This is the lowest of low that a sitting president has stooped too.No it isn't b-grady. Ronald Wilson Reagan asked children to listen to him talk about tax cuts and even asked them to ask him prepped questions. George HW Bush spoke to America's children as well.But we don't expect your kind to know facts. You just jump on the emotion and run with it like a drunken clown.This attempt to propagandize children...Propagandize in ONE SPEECH? Do you believe your own crazy talk? Will anyone make fun of them because of their father's actions?Actually, if anyone needs to be mocked it is you and your insane idea that a speech by the President of the United States to American school children is subversive.
shaw, give it up. you can't argue with diningroom furniture.
beckgrady:"What a mistake many voters made!"Actually, if you ask the voters, as polls do, a majority of them still believe in Obama and support him.What you need to ask yourself, if you can take a break from you mass posting of this comment is why is it that you are still representative of a minority?What does everyone else GET that you do not GET?Of course, do you get paid by the hour or by the number of blogs you post your comments on? I hope that we never find out that your employer is NOT taking out payroll taxes from your pay because one thing is for sure, YOU ARE NOT INDEPENDENT, and you are definitely not an INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR...
