Corporations urge Supreme Court to embrace gay marriage
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- More than 200 businesses will urge the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday to strike down a federal law that restricts the definition of marriage to heterosexual unions.
Lawyers representing the businesses said they would file a brief in the case.
Companies including Microsoft Corp, Google Inc, Starbucks Corp and Pfizer Inc are among those that joined the brief. Others included Aetna Inc, Amazon.com , Inc and Citigroup Inc.
Thomson Reuters Corp is another signatory. The Reuters news agency is part of Thomson Reuters.
The companies want the Supreme Court to strike down a key provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
Separately, lawyers representing another group of employers, including some of the same companies, had said already that they planned to file a brief on Thursday in a related case that questions a California law that bans gay marriage.
The two cases are to be argued before the Supreme Court on March 26 and 27.
In the brief filed on Wednesday, attorney Sabin Willett wrote that DOMA "requires that employers treat one employee differently from another, when each is married, and each marriage is equally lawful."
DOMA does not create any uniformity nationwide, Willett said, because 12 states in total either authorize same-sex marriage or recognize marriages that have been performed in other states.
That creates a burden for employers, particularly those who do business nationwide, he added.
Willett also wrote that the law forces companies to discriminate, sometimes in contravention of their own internal policies and local laws, when dealing with healthcare plans and other benefits.
"We must do all of this in states, counties and cities that prohibit workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and demand equal treatment of all married individuals," he added.
In briefs already filed in support of marriage being restricted to heterosexual unions, business interests have not been represented. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has not taken a stand on the issue.
----------
Another major hate issue is about to be taken away from the evangelical nitwits, as gay marriage is accepted in America and the Supremes will strike down right wing DOMA.
Social conservatives lose again!!
Gotta love it!!
Well atleast not everyone in nutsuckers family is queer , his sister likes girls !

When does Obama plan to meet with Republicans?
At the 11th hour, as usual. But raising taxes yet again without any reasonable spending cuts isn't going to happen this time.

I imagine he's in panic mode as we speak.

So how is it possible only 29% agree with republicans who have tried to pass bill after bill of reasonable cuts and reforms while 40% agree with democrats who want to spend more?
How could so many people be this confused?
Can someone please explain this to me?
Public ignorance and mass media manipulation.

The public likes Obama while disagreeing with his policies.

Go figure.

So how is it possible only 29% agree with republicans who have tried to pass several bills of cuts and reforms and 40% still agree with democrats who want to spend more?
Are people really this confused?
It's not Obama and Democrats who concern me the most. It's my fellow countrymen.
Democrats make up only a third of the voting population but when they get elected, they don't represent the majority with their agenda. They shove crap down peoples throats. Obamacare, for example.

Ah look.

I started a war by lies in Iraq so I could suck taxpayer dollars via the military-industrial complex, GOP style.

What? 4,000 dead U.S. servicemen?

http://www.forbes.com/fdc/welcome_mjx.shtml
The sequester mechanism was part of a 2011 law designed to force Congress to reach a deficit reduction deal and Obama's idea.

Bob Woodward said in the Washington Post White House officials, namely Obama's nominee for Treasury Secretary, proposed the sequester.

Woodward, in his book called "The Price of Politics" wrote Obama was "moving the goal posts" by insisting on new tax revenue as part of an alternative to the sequester cuts.

Not moving the goal post - just pretending it's not there.

I swear to God I love to drink Diet Coke while I type. It's so refreshing. Sometimes when I'm just wearing an old T-shirt I'll just pour it all over my chest and let it dry on there. Then, at the end of the day I'll just stand up and rip it off all at once which is so goddamed exciting it makes milk squirt out my nipples.

My father-in-law used to vote Democrat, but every year would complain to me about the taxes going up more than needed. I finally told him he was the one doing it to himself by voting Democrat. Ever since then, he now votes Republican.
