The GOP just got a big boost in its crusade to abolish the marriage tax penalty. Tax revenues are expected to increase as gay couples get hit with the penalty.

I stayed up all night just so I wouldn't miss the ruling as it was announced, and was overjoyed at the decision, though not w/the vote count...these 5-4's are just to close for comfort!
You're right Cal, there are better days ahead! ;-D

I am not for "redefining" marriage (between a man and a woman). I am, however, in favor of equality for all ... just call it what it is; committed relationship, civil union, etc. Marriage it is not.

Great news! DOMA was stupid anyway and based in ignorance and intolerance. Hopefully people will finally come to see that equality for all will bring about the destruction of society or the country as we know it. Progress is beautiful.
Thanks Cal.
