Gay Marriage Will Save the Economy...:)

Legalizing gay marriage will bring billions to the economy. We first addressed this issue of how much revenue gay marriage would bring to the economy back in 2007. Now that America is in debt for Trillions, let's revisit this solution.....$$$ We reported in 2007 that an average U.S. couple spends $28,800 for their wedding. This does not include the cost for a honeymoon, wedding rings, bridal consultants, wedding planners or hotels for their families & friends....
Gay marriage would also boost the housing industry as newlyweds would purchase houses & larger apartments. Then there are couples who are married with children in mind....:) This would be another source of pumping up the economy for all the kiddie needs like clothing, toys, strollers, cribs, Etc….:)These are challenging financial times & the world needs to find new resources to climb OUT of this mess. Why not tap the LGBT community?Provide all people marriage equality & watch the economy thrive both financially & spiritually....:) Check-OUT our interview with Rosemary White, President of Strong Financial Group, talk about how to survive in this bumpy economy @ OUTTAKE VOICES™OUTTAKE Archive Story: Gay Marriage & the Ecomony

Obama's Big Day.....

The best thing about the inauguration is Bush is gone. You have to admit seeing Cheney in a wheelchair seemed like a scene from "Dr. Strangelove. " I'm sure Obama's speech reads well for the history books but the actual spoken word was a bit dry...... Watching the endless dances by the First Couple @ all the Balls you couldn't help think, isn't it nice that they have marriage but marriage equality in this country is in the dark ages.....

Martin Luthur King's Legacy....

“Gay & Lesbian people have families & their families should have
legal protections. A constitutional amendment banning gay marriage
is a form of gay bashing & will do nothing at all to protect traditional
marriage.” ---Mrs. Coretta Scott King
Jack O'Dell, former Southern Christian Leadership Conference
activist & aide to Dr. Martin Luther King states "Dr. King would
have fully supported Gay Marriage." Coretta Scott King agreed.

"Milk" & "The Times of Harvey Milk..."

Everyone should go see Gus Van Sant's film "Milk" starring Sean Penn for the New Year. Not just the LGBT community but anyone who believes in Civil Rights.
For news junkies, if you haven't seen Rob Epstein's documentary "The Times of Harvey Milk" this is a perfect opportunity to check it OUT. Both films are a Must-See. However, you can't help feel after watching these flicks how far our LGBT community still needs to go to achieve equality.....
