Sorry this episode was late. I was a busy person this past week, but things should be slower come next week.
I am done with school for a couple of weeks, and I am looking forward to the break.
The job is going great, and I am enjoying doing what I am doing.
The Federal Marriage Amendment was defeated in the US Senate this past week, only getting 50 votes out of the required 67 to send it to the House.
What's more, two Sentors, Arlen Specter (R-PA) and Judd Gregg (R-NH) changed from a "yes" to a "no" since the last time this worthless amendment came up for a vote.
Many thanks to both of my Senators, Carl Levin (D-MI) and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), who also voted "no" on this worthless amendment!
This amendment vote is nothing but a political strategy to get a checklist of who voted which way so that the Religious Right can target the "no" voters with negative campaigning and publicity.
The House of Representatives is supposed to vote on a similar amendment soon, and it is not expected to pass, but we must make sure.
Contact your representative and tell him/her you don't want discrimination written into the Supreme Law of the Land.
G'day to any Aussies who might be listening in, as the podcast was added to a directory in the land of Oz.
