    Undoes DOMA too basically, so it's something, about all you're going to get done for now.

    I'd laugh at Vegas making a killing by becoming the go-to destination for the LGBTQ+ community from Jesus****istan. Alabama won't recognize you? Come to Vegas, have your ceremeony, get a room, celebrate, throw some Craps and play some slots, and enjoy your new life event =)

    The Respect for Marriage Act would not force states to issue same-sex marriage licenses, but does require them to recognize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere. It also recognizes these marriages under federal law for the consideration of benefits like Medicare and Social Security.

    Why are Republicans so deep in bed with Russia?
    1. Because they are brethren right wing authoritarians.

    2. Because they just want to sabotage the country to retake power. They do not have any other priorities except (1) personal enrichment, and (2) power.

    Because they're ****ing Nazis. They don't count anymore; they aren't Americans. Take their citizenship and then use ICE to round them up and deport them. 246 years of this bullsh-t is too long. The Right has no place in a free society; they are a cancer.

    The far-right and the far-left are always more concerned with domestic affairs in their initial stages. They wonder why should we pay to fight imperialist proxy wars abroad when the economy either already has or is threatening to tank and we will need that money here at home? It's an argument that finds sympathy in many quarters. The fascists would rather spend it on border control, law enforcement, and die Verteidigung des Vaterlandes. The Marxists think they could use it to feed, house, and care for everyone regardless of employment status and turn the country into a magnet socialist paradise.

    No it likely wasn't. But again...why the hell do you even draft that letter? It is stupid stuff like that which is what puts Progressives behind. Stuff like this makes them look out of touch and not ready for prime time which annoys me since I give them my money.

    It is fine to discuss that stuff behind closed doors amongst peers. Never trust that if you write it down it won't get out and embarrass you. Jesus the Trump cronies are showing that every friggin day as emails get released.

    Hard to believe that wasn't a leak to try to weaken the progressives. And let's just say it wouldn't be a progressive who would do that. Ahem.

    Someone with an IQ over 12 I would guess. What a monumentally stupid thing to even put to paper.
