The Circus Known as the NYS Senate

December 2, 2009

The Greatest Show in NYS.

I just got word from NewsChannel 13 in Albany that the “Same-sex marriage bill fails to pass in #NYSenate 24-38.” This is very disappointing. I support same-sex marriage. Why? Because everyone should have equal rights no matter who they are. I also believe in the separation of church and state. So, it doesn’t makes sense to me as to why these 38 clowns in the New York State Senate would vote something like this down especially when the state is one of the most liberal in the nation. I mean the state already recognize marriages from other places. Why not go 100%? People really should put their religion aside and do that right thing.

Many years ago, people of different races couldn’t marry each other. Some people still believe this today. I remember a story a while back where a judge denied an interracial couple the right to marry each other. There was so much hate back then.  History is repeating itself again with these states denying gay couples the right to marry. Why can’t we let people be happy? So many great points were made on the NYS Senate debate floor, but it was as if those words went into one ear and come out the other for those 38 Senators.

If you want more information on today’s session, check out these things from the New York Times. All of the Republicans and eight Democrats voted  against it. Here are your eight; most of them are even from New York City. If you live in the state of New York and support same-sex marriage, talk to your Senator: http://www.nysenate.gov/

P.S. The NYS Senate has always been screwed up. We need to shake things up, my fellow New Yorkers.

  1. You’ll be happy to here then that D.C. made a very important step into having same sex marriage legal. The only thing stopping it would be the courts or the heavily democratic congress. While the NY voting is a setback the small win here and there will ultimately change that.


  2. Can you tell me more about what’s going on in DC?
