A wise decision, but….this bill has only until January 19 to get passed and signed off on. I don’t see it happening. A republican (conservative) governor takes over on that date and even if the bill passes the legislature, he will veto it. Civil unrest, disobedience may be the only solution to put the democrats on notice that they can no longer take the gay vote and contributions for granted any longer. Either put up or shut up.
The GLBTQ community is going to get slapped in the face AGAIN. I agree on the put up or shut up, Robert. For too long the Democrats have taken us for granted and it shows. Obama could give less of a damn about the promises he made to the US GLBTQ community. He got elected–now we can go to hell.
I was reading on HuffPost about where many US GLBTQ activists are becoming impatient and some poster posted that we needed to quit being “whiny bitches and STFU, sit down and wait” for him to get to us. I believe the GLBTQ community has waited long enough. Any victories on the marriage equality front have been won not because of him but in spite of him. I didn’t vote for him but my spouse did and she is becoming disgusted with him. He has had a number of chances to show his committment to us–he has come through exactly ONCE–by signing the Matthew Shepherd Act. He could be a major force for the repeal of DOMA and DADT but he chooses to do nothing. Yes, I would think it is past time for the GLBTQ people to raise a little hell–that seems to be the only way that the African-American Community finally got the attention of the President and Congress.
Bishop Ioan, I totally concur. We were conned as was our money for the campaign. No more, we have long memories.
Sadly the USA has a 2 party state , only one worse then communism! Forget about the Democrats and start voting for alternatives. Unless people do that , all you are doing is reinforcing the existing system of conservatism and ‘your votes and donations are bieng totally abused’!!!!!!
