Pennsylvania Pride

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

This week, I am quite proud to be from Pennsylvania. To begin with, the county I live in is giving out marriage licenses for gay couples despite a state ban on these marriages. AND, despite being sued by our jackass of a Governor, they have kept on trucking. The brave county employee who is issuing these licenses was asked about it again yesterday:

Which brings us back to Hanes who, untethered by political elections, is doing what he thinks is right. “I made a choice,” Hanes argues. And until he is forced from office for challenging the Pennsylvania constitution, appears he will continue to do so.

Which brings us to a second act of open defiance following One Term Tom’s frivolous lawsuit on the Montgomery County Register of Wills, the mayor of Braddock, in Allegheny County (near Pittsburgh) married one of the couples that Hanes issued a license to.

So, in short… I’m proud to be a Pennsylvanian these days. And I’ll be even prouder when we vote Tommy Boy out of office and take more steps in the direction of equality.
