The Wrap-Up: February 14, 2012


Yesterday saw Washington state have marriage equality signed into law and the New Jersey state Senate pass a marriage equality bill of its own.

Yesterday also saw President Obama unveil his budget for fiscal year 2013.

Where Are They Now: Tea Party Edition.

Canada calls the U.S. on its problem with the gays.

"Women in the military should expect to be raped" (paraphrased...barely) is exactly the kind of punditry we have come to expect from Fox and its contributors.

An open letter was pinned for the LGBT students in the Anoka-Hennipin school district (the one in Minnesota that has seen a rash of suicides linked to anti-LGBT bullying).

The GOP blinked on extending the tax cuts...luckily.

Some Wisconsin legislators are making a move to undo Citizens United and end corporate personhood.

Some clergy members are lobby MSNBC to stop having Tony Perkins on-air. I wonder why since it's not like he's the leader of a hate group. Oh wait...

And lastly, the good news is that more mayors are on board with Freedom To Marry. The bad news, being a Hokie fan, I can't hate on Charlottesville nearly as much.
