Press misrepresented Pres. announcement as "Ban Gay Marriage"
X! The proposed legislation does not "ban" anything.
You can call a cat a "horse", but it still won't eat oats.
One state can change the meaning of a word,
but that shouldn't force another state to accept its slang.
Should be unnecc. States are generally free to make their own decisions.
But, the problem comes from deliberate attempts to distort a Const. clause

If UT says polygamy is marriage, TN shouldn't be forced to recog it.
If CT issues a so-called "marriage license" and "drivers license"

AZ can still ban chimps from driving, filing joint tax returns,
or applying for welfare benefits
-- regardless of what the CT & Federal courts say!

but also in less-well-know but even more widespread career paths,
such as receptionists, airline stewardesses,
sales and advertising,
and even in corporate boardrooms (... and bedrooms).
These historic grievances cannot be redressed
by reparations alone,
nor merely by the courts.
Therefore, to redress these historic grievances,
the Affirmative Action movement should embrace and promote
the following remedies and incentives:

New federal and state programs are needed
