Under Scott Walker, Wisconsin Is Now Officially Hostile To Gay Couples
Walker moves to bar gay couples from enjoying hospital visitation privileges extended to heterosexual couples.
Set aside for a moment Walker's one-dimensional, "Open For Business" mantra that also closes off Wisconsin to new industries - - wind power, rail upgrades, and other alternative energy or conservation-based tourism: there is an ugly, punitive side to Walker's thinking (sic) and actions that defy common sense and besmirch the state's progressive, tolerant reputation.
This anti-gay stance by Walker - - ask yourself how many times you have been in a hospital situation with a loved one, and what it would like to have that contact barred to you - - is designed to win support on the far, homophobic and ideological right-wing.
Think about how it contradicts the right's so-called belief in "choice." OK for schools. OK for de-regulation. OK for health care. OK for 401-K's, and so on.
Not OK for human beings who happen to be gay.
Walker's action is mean-spirited, with no redeeming value to anyone, anywhere in Wisconsin.
I hope we bring this shameful chapter in Wisconsin politics to a halt with successful recall elections against Walker's Senate allies, and finally next year with a successful recall and defeat of Walker himself.
Walker is a political sociopath with no moral compass.
Just one more reason (my list is now up to about 50) for recalling Snotty in January 2012.
