Brian Brown, President of National Organization for Marriage came on MSNBC this morning to talk about same-sex marriage in New Hampshire being set to be repealed. He is joined by Craig Stowell, co-chair of Stand Up For New Hampshire Families.
Brian is 100% confident about the outcome and says, “I expect we are going to have a majority here. It would be historic to have a state vote and have a majority vote to say ‘this was wrong, we made a tragic mistake 2 years ago and we are gonna right that wrong and I expect to see a victory today.”
But what really happened in the House Of Representatives… we all know now. The Bill was defeated and same-sex marriage remains legal in the Granite State. The Republican dominated house rubbed Brian’s face raw against the granite of the Granite State.
Its been a great day for the LGBT community today. We had two victories in one day and when the victories are against National Organization for Marriage (NOM), it tastes even more sweet.
No. 1 and the most important: BILL HB437 which was introduced in New Hampshire to repeal the Same-Sex Marriage law was killed by the republican lead House of Representatives by a whopping 211-116 votes. This is a huge blow for NOM and an incredible but a shocking victory for us considering the House of Representatives in NH is totally GOP dominated.
The 2nd defeat for National Organization for Marriage was when the Director of corporate Fairness Project for NOM Mr. Jonathan Baker asked the CEO of STARBUCKS Mr. Howard Shultz about their declaration to support Same-Sex Marriage. Mr. Shultz’s response?
“Any decision of this type or magnitude has to be made with great thoughtfulness and I would assure you that a senior team at Starbucks discussed this. To be very candid with you, this was not something that was a difficult decision for us and we did share this with the board as well…. We made that decision, in our view, through the lens of humanity and being the kind of company that embraces diversity.” And the auditorium full of stock holders burst into a deafening applause.
Needless to say… NOM is not happy with this answer and has already started to plan its attack against STARBUCKS by designing a “Boycott Starbucks” website which will be launched soon asking people to pledge to boycott the company.
I am not a fan of STARBUCKS coffee, but I pledge to buy atleast 1 coffee every week from them from now on.
I had forgotten how annoying Michele Bachmann‘s voice was. Everytime I see her, she makes my skin crawl.
But gotta admit, Piers Morgan brings back these assholes and rips them apart. Love him for that.
Finally Crazy Eyes drops out (stops running) of the presidential campaign of 2012. She had the lowest number of votes among the republican candidates in Iowa yesterday.
Frothy Mix, who almost won was beaten by Romney by about 88 votes. They were neck to neck.
Michele Bachmann‘s senseless speech (ramble) is makes you wonder how she is even working in congress. She sounds uneducated, primitive, confused woman who should not be anywhere near politics. She should help her wife bake cookies for their kids. Her speach was littered with “socialism” 4 times and Obama 14 times.
The good thing…she misunderstood what God told her, but atleast she understood correctly what the people of IOWA wanted her to know. “GO AWAY.”
“Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice,” Bachmann said, “so I have decided to stand aside.” Finally some sensible talk from her
Sorry could not embed the video of her declaration of ending her campaign.
Maybe now she would be able to invest more time in trying to turn her husband (Lady Bird) Bachmann straight. That man is so far in the closet, he has reached Narnia.
This is hilarious and alarmingly true. Michele Bachmann has no clue how disastrously ill-informed and idiot she projects herself.
“Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. It is a harmless gas.” Really???? Is she for real???
The scary part is, she is “running” for president.
Enjoy the video and have a good laugh.
Another scoop about ‘Oh so Christian‘ Michele Bachmann who is “running for the presidency of the United States“. How far do you wanna run, lady?
Here is the link from Joe.My.God. blog post. That explains everything. Forward this to as many people and social networks as you possible can. Let the people know.
As she says she is “running”… instead of ‘for’ it should be ‘from’ the Presidency. As far as her rickety legs would carry her away from The White House.
There has been a traitor, opportunist, driven by greed and possibly power and fame in every page of history. Even Jesus had a Judas among his disciples.
So having Chris among us is no surprise. He is a man who is hungry for fame, wealth, power, recognition. Well, there is nothing wrong in that. Every one of us seek all of that and more. But when it comes at the cost of one of our own, that’s when trouble begins.
He reminds me of a line uttered by no other than Voldemort (the dark Lord). “There is no good or evil: only power and those too weak to seek it.” Chris is no weakling. He perfectly knows which bark to scratch to get what he wants. And he is ready to sit with Michele Bachmann just because study says she is leading right now in the Presidency race. He would be even ready to sleep with her if that would confirm his position in the political arena. As for Michele, she should not have a problem sleeping with him given the fact that she has years of experience of sleeping with a gay man.
Below is the video of an interview on CNN where Chris is grilled but he dodges every direct question like a perfect politician, the same way Michele dodged all the questions thrown at her about her nelli husbands gay reparetive therapy organization.
