If all 50 states had gay marriage, the wedding industry would be booming
My voter’s ballot came in the mail yesterday:
California has what is called a “permanent mail voter.” I’m one of them! It’s much more fun to vote at home, in the hot tub, drinking a margarita, eating jalapeño nachos, watching Star Trek: Voyager…….. Any number of things are far better than standing in a long line at an elementary school on election day!
Long-time readers probably know who I voted for. But if you don’t:
I’m wondering why Roseanne Barr was not included in the presidential debates. Maybe it’s because of how she tortured the National Anthem on July 26, 1990?
The booing was justified, in my humble opinion.
I had two main reasons why I voted for President Obama:
First, I went without health insurance from 2003 to July 2012. After having minor surgery on Halloween Day in 2003, my insurance company paid the bill and then dropped me. Since I now had a pre-existing condition, no insurance company would insure me. They wouldn’t even give me a quote. I told several of them, “Quote me what you would consider an outrageous, astronomical premium. I might pay it!” Nope. Summary dismissal.
Then, when some of the Affordable Care Act provisions went into effect in January 2012, insurance companies were calling, emailing, mailing, texting, sexting….. They were stumbling all over themselves to get me into their insured pool.
I now have affordable (defined as $280 a month) health insurance, and it does not have a lifetime cap like previous insurance did. I have been told that the lifetime cap elimination is one thing that went into effect in January 2012.
Second, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are vehemently opposed to people like me (i.e., gay people) getting married, even though the sky has not fallen in states — such as Massachusetts, where Romney was Governor — and countries that have so-called “gay marriage” — Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Mexico City, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont (and California if they got married between May and November 2008). I also have not heard of a single straight marriage that has fallen apart because a couple of gay people got married.
President Obama came out earlier this year in support of equal marriage rights. To my way of thinking, if all 50 states had gay marriage, the wedding industry would be booming. And if the wedding industry is booming, so, too, would be the tourism industry. After all, newlyweds have to go on honeymoons! ☺☺☺☺☺
Zoey the Cool Cat had her preferences, too, which pretty much coincided with mine. She loved the fact that the President has a pet, even though it’s a DD (dastardly dog). She will never forgive Romney for tying his dog to the top of the car and driving down the road. “Some people should not have pets,” she said.
Although Zoey the Cool Cat claimed she was watching me to make sure I filled out my ballot correctly, the following picture tells a different story. I guess she finds politics boring……..
