Out Of Touch Once Again...
On Tuesday afternoon, the vote so many North Carolina GOP representatives were desperately seeking has finally been delivered on a silver platter. Could it be a bill for jobs creation? NOPE! Maybe tax cuts for the state's citizens? NOPE! Hurricane Irene Help? NOPE! What about education issues? NOPE! The environment & energy? NOPE! Possibly health care? ABSOLUTELY NOT! The most important & pressing issue for the state's lawmakers is "marriage in-equality" & making sure traditional straight marriage is "protected" by passing a Gay Marriage Amendment ballot.
"Protected," forcing a vote against the civil rights of a minority by the majority...
Out of the ass of Senator Jim Forrester (R): "this wasn't a slap in the face to them, it was just something I thought we needed to do to continue to have a strong family structure here in North Carolina."
Shame on those who are put into positions of power that seek nothing more than to hurt others with their hatred/extreme ideologies.
Well Mr. Obama, anything to say?
Standing up (OK, sitting down) for our rights!
