Quick, which is more cowardly and bigoted? Democratic Rowan County Commissioners or Republicans in the Wyoming House of Representatives?
If you thought blue state North Carolina Democrats had one up on Dick Cheney's home state Wyoming red-red-red Republicans, you'd be wrong.
Last night, the Rowan County Commission voted for a meaningless resolution concerning writing discrimination into the state constitution via a so-called marriage amendment.
Reading the link, you'll note that the cowardly Democrats on the county commission voted for this toothless nonsense. You might ask where was the resolution about divorce, or funding for marriage counseling, or myriad other questions.
I'm asking why North Carolina Democratic County Commissioners don't have the same level of sense as Wyoming Republicans.
A few days ago, the Wyoming House of Representatives flatly rejected a so-called marriage amendment. It needed 40 of 60 votes to pass. It got 25. Not even a majority. And Wyoming is an overwhelmingly Republican state with both chambers of their legislature having overwhelming majorities in favor of Republicans.
Shame on you Rowan County Democratic County Commissioners. You don't have the guts Wyoming Republicans do.
Why is this coming up now? NC state Senator and arch-bigot Jim Forrester sent letters to the chairs of every county commission asking for these useless resolutions.
You might want to check your county commission agenda for this exercise in time-wasting. I'd hate for county commissions to be spending time balancing their budgets. Well...maybe passing a resolution asking Senator Forrester to actually focus on the health care crisis (he is a doctor) or the economic storm we're facing would get his attention. Who's up for that kind of resolution?
