The Confederate flag came down and the gay pride flag went up. THANK GOD!
That SCOTUS got it right on Obamacare was also a great win for the American people. It's interesting that when ALL of the people against Obama Care are asked about specific characteristics of Obamacare, such as you cannot be kicked off or denied health insurance for a pre-existing condition, they are for it. When Mitt Romney's advisor was asked about Obamacare:
"In an interview with Capital, a New York-based online magazine, a key Mitt Romney adviser who helped craft the presidential contender’s controversial Massachusetts healthcare reform law called out his former boss for attempting to put distance between his own law and Obamacare — saying there was “zero difference” between the two.
“They’re the same f@cking bill,” Jonathan Gruber told Capital. “He just can’t have his cake and eat it too. Basically, you know, it’s the same bill. He can try to draw distinctions and stuff, but he’s just lying.
“The only big difference is he didn’t have to pay for his [in Massachusetts]. Because the federal government paid for it. Where at the federal level, we have to pay for it, so we have to raise taxes.”
When I hear Republicans complain about gay folks having the right to marry they are the wrong side of history. Period. Hard Stop. When I read that the Texas AG will allow the discrimination to continue:
"County clerks in Texas will be able to turn away gay couples seeking marriage licenses, the state's attorney general Ken Paxton (R) announced on Sunday.
Clerks can refuse based on religious objections, Paxton told the Austin American-Statesman, and because the clerks will probably be sued, "numerous lawyers stand ready to assist clerks defending their religious beliefs," he said."IF this happens in Texas, I hope the US Attorney General throws all of these morons in jail INCLUDING Ken Paxton!
I used to be a Independent/Republican and I did not leave the Republican party, the Republican Party left me and millions of others. Change or die Republicans. You can't be the party of old white men that are AGAINST immigrants, healthcare for millions who could not get it, LGBT, non-Christians, scientists, ....
I have LOTS of friends who I greatly respect and like who happen to be Republicans, I just don't get why they can stay in party that is so incredibly backwards...
