SCOTUS, Thank You!

The decisions out of the Supreme Court the past week have been very frustrating, which didn't bode well for DOMA and Prop 8, in my opinion. Then, last night, I read an article that quoted Justice Antonin Scalia that implied that he was *not happy* with the decisions handed down on these two basic rights cases.

The fact that the court ruled to overturn DOMA and upheld the lower court decision to overturn Prop 8 just reaffirms what Thomas Jefferson stated in our Declaration of Independence "“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." We can say that every man and woman in our nation can pursue happiness with the person they love by their side. This makes me happy.

This makes ME happy.
