Curious About the Only State That Constantly Argues About Obvious Points of its Constitution? These are my Local Pols...

... Some think that superstitious undereducated morons who can't operate a 4-way stop should get to decide who gets to marry. Look here for the full list.
My feeling is that Bob "I Used Of Been a Teacheh" Correia voted "Yes" because he thought it meant that "Yes, gay people can get married." He's running for mayor of Fall River, where NOBODY gets married anyway. They're old, and it would be disrespectful to the memory of the late husband, anyway. I wasn't sure which towns accept the SouthCoast monicker, so I used the actual coast as my guide and threw in people I knew because they're funny. Many of the surrounding (the Attleboros, Taunton, Brocktree, etc) bedroom'n'mall communities' reps voted Y probably for the same reason Future Mayor Bob did.
HOUSE:
Antonio F. D. Cabral, D-New Bedford - N
Stephen R. Canessa, D-New Bedford - N
Robert Correia, D-Fall River - Y
Patricia A. Haddad, D-Somerset - N
Robert M. Koczera, D-New Bedford - N
John F. Quinn, D-Dartmouth - N
Michael J. Rodrigues, D-Westport - N
William M. Straus, D-Mattapoisett - N
David B. Sullivan, D-Fall River - N
Philip Travis, D-Rehoboth - Y
SENATE
Joan M. Menard, D-Somerset - N
Mark C. Montigny, D-New Bedford - N

------
N no
Y yes
X not voting
...and don't forget these guys, and their much wisdom and experience with marriage:(the signs say "Marriage = Man and Woman" and something about attacks on the family. You do know that priests wear wedding rings to symbolize their "marriage to the Church" and nuns wear wedding rings to symbolize their marriage to Jesus... or the Holy Spirit... or some other kind of marriage that isn't in the Constitution. I wonder if we're going to have to get a ballot question about that?)

We can thank that pig Phil "The Pitchfork" Paleologos and his insane wife Celeste for this attack on the gay community.

Boycott the Shawmut Diner and stop violence against the gay community.

Call up the Shawmut Diner 508-993-3073 and tell them you are boycotting their restaurant because of Phil and Celeste's attacks on civil rights.

Spread the word on the boycott with emails to friends and calls to the talk shows. Stop the hate- hit haters in the wallet.

Let's drive the Shawmut Diner into the history books as an example to all of the fascist haters out there.
