11-11-11

First of all, sincere gratitude to all the men and women who have selflessly served our Country and sacrificed to protect our freedoms on this Veteran's Day.


Secondly, one can't help but think that it just may be a fitting tribute to those who fight for the "land of the free and home of the brave" for the Senate to have made the move yesterday to repeal DOMA -- which denies a significant population of America's citizens over 1100 rights and privileges. 

“Because of DOMA, thousands of American families are now being treated unfairly by the federal government,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.). “This unfairness must end.”
Obviously, The Respect for Marriage Act would still need to pass the Republican controlled House (which many say is doubtful), but every step is one step closer to freedom for all Americans.
