I suspect that the people who are most up in arms about basic protections for employees - people WANTING to work - are the most apt to scream about the costs of welfare, food stamps, and other public assistance.

I think it's great that gay people want to get married - it is pretty basic stuff. Yippee for them and more power to you. I do have a problem with a president who thinks this is a top priority while he does nothing about more serious and threatening issues. What we will regret much more than what Obama does is what Obama ignores. It is my greatest hope we don't all get another horrible event on US soil while Obama majors in the minor issues and ignores gathering dangers all around us.
