SHOCKING!!! Republicans crossing the party line?


The Senate took a crucial step toward protecting same-sex marriage rights, with 12 Republicans joining all Democrats to advance a landmark bill.

as an aside, the Church of Latter-day Saints came out in favor of the bill.

Many conservative types are trying to right themselves for the modern age.

from CNN; why does it need to pass though the house again?

Once the bill passes the Senate, it will need to be passed again through the House before going to President Joe Biden’s desk to be signed into law. Supporters of the bill hope to pass the legislation through the House before the end of the year as Republicans appear on track to take control of the chamber in the next Congress.

As an aside, Clarence Thomas said he wants LGBTQ+, same-sex marriage, and contraception civil rights cases in front of the Court ASAP so that he can say that homosexuals have no civil rights AND Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh, attended an anti-LGBTQ event sponsored by the Federalist Society last week.

Good.

Pretty amazing the change that occurred so quickly among the electorate concerning same-sex marriage. As I recall it was just about 10 years ago when Biden announced support for it (surprising Obama) after saying they didn't support it in a vice-president debate a few years earlier. Pretty fast change for him and then the rest of the country. At the time I thought announcing the change in his thinking was one of Biden't great moments.

Agreed, it really was. Can't agree with everything on all issues, but this one was pretty obviously the correct choice, and Obama was wrong on it for longer than he should have been.

“ Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming “


As a former Wyoming voter I’m shocked!

Cynthia Lummox and I agree on pretty much nothing else.
