    Yay New Zealand!

    Sad that Obama can inspire another country to do this, but the hateful bigots in this country remain unmoved.

    It's so great to have a president who's leading the way at home and abroad on equal rights for gay men and women.

    Especially when for so many years we've had Repub presidents who pushed to keep gay Americans second class citizens.

    Wha? Did MLK renounce his citizenship? Did Mr. & Mrs. Loving give up and move? Did the suffragettes take their toys and go home?

    When the going gets tough, the tough get going. We need folks to stay and fight not throw in the towel, especially not now.

    I hear ya too Troy, been there done that, didnt work, get frustrated, keep moving, die trying, im tired and just want to live my life without all the shame, shame on you, our country and its divide is full of weak minded sheeple, many of whom have no class or ambition, im not thrilled with greed is good, and bastardized capitalism, leaders who act like children who cant play nice in the sandbox and for some, weak mind agenda driven, im just tired of this whole system, i see it for what it is, im sure will get there one day, not in my lifetime, why do i need to be miserable, now, when life is too short to worry if this country will ever come together for the good of all, i'll never be happy here.

    Great to see our neighbours being proactive - however recent events have proven how conservative it is here much like the USA
