The New Jersey veto.

Today’s Link
After a brief moment of happiness when the NJ politicians voted for marriage equality, that happiness has now ended with the promised veto by Governor Christie actually happening. Christie vetoed the legislation yesterday stating that this is not an issue that should be decided by the legislature but by the electorate. Whether or not this is part of a rumored vice-president option for Christie is conjecture as you will see in the link. But it should be remembered that Christie also stated that civil rights in the 1950s/1960s should have been decided by electoral vote instead of legislation.

Christie said that Black people would have preferred that to demonstrating and rioting. This time he hasn’t said whether he thinks that gay people would prefer to have their rights put up for a vote.

Just in case you want to know, Governor, I don’t want my rights to be put up for a vote. I’m also pretty sure that black people wouldn’t have wanted that either….despite what you would like to think.

Big love,

DMx
