Dick Cheney came out as a supporter of gay marriage! Of course, there’s a footnote…only if it’s deemed legal by the state and not fed. I’ve taken family law and I understand the DOMA but I really think it’s beyond time that both the federal and state governments adopt gay marriage. This country has denied full rights to gay citizens for far too long.
Today was a big day for same sex marriage. Both Maine and New Hampshire joined the ranks of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont and Iowa in legalizing same sex marriage. Is Rhode Island next? The rest of the country? I guess we’ll just have to see-one state at a time. Let’s just hope there won’t be a Prop 8 problem in these states. Such good news though!
Maine became the fifth state to legalize same sex marriage today! Gov. John Baldacci signed the bill into law today. He did point out that the decision would ultimately be up to the people of Maine but right now it’s not clear how the people of Maine might go about changing the law. Excellent news and let’s hope that New Hampshire follows suit!
Maine passed a same-sex marriage law today which makes gay marriage legal in the state! Gov. John Baldacci has to sign or veto the bill but has not given any hints as to what he might do. Anyone know what Texas is up to? I’ll have to check that out. Someone said something really cryptic in the comments yesterday. Speaking of…
Beware the comments section. There’s an angry debating going on there…but not as angry as my next post about a new grilled cheese sandwich!
You know you’re on the right (read “correct”) side of an issue when Marion Barry is opposing it! DC’s resident assclown was the lone vote against recognizing out-of-state gay marriages. In an ideal world, DC would allow full marriage rights but recognizing out-of-state gay marriage is a nice first step.
As per usual, Marion Barry is on the wrong side of the issue…why? Because he always is. I learned as a DC voter YEARS ago…before I was even old enough to vote, that if he supported something, I should investigated it heavily and, more likely than not, vote the other way. Guess what? It works! Pretty much ever issue he’s supported has been bad for the city. And NOW he’s against same sex marriage in DC. Why, do you ask? Well OBVIOUSLY it’s because he’s such a MORAL politician. Unless you were living under a rock for the entire of the 80’s and 90’s and even recently, you KNOW that he’s just about as far from a “MORAL” politician as you can get. Not only did he smoke crack with a self-professed ‘crack whore’, but he accepted bribes, gave government contracts to family members, and ran the city into the ground. Also, when did he dodge bullets during the civil rights movement? He stood next to MLK a million years ago and that’s supposed to make the community he’s being been treating like shit forgive him for everything he’s done? I think he’s ‘misremembering’ the bullets…those fly around the city he was mayor of ALL THE TIME. So perhaps he was remembering DC…sans gay marriage…but full of drug wars and quickly climbing to the top of the murder rate. Or maybe he was remembering getting robbed at gunpoint in June 2006. Fortunately, his credit cards were all maxed out so they didn’t get very far on them-oh-that’s right! He’s ALSO one of the millions of MORAL Americans who borrowed way more than they could ever pay back. Also, how many times has he been married? FOUR. FOUR TIMES. HOW can SOMEONE WHO’S BEEN MARRIED FOUR TIMES EVEN OPEN THEIR MOUTH TO TALK ABOUT THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE???
Let’s hope they make some progress up in Albany on Same Sex Marriage!
