States Rights Today. States Rights Tommorrow. States Rights Forever.

To my LBGT brothers and sisters,  I'm happy The Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, paving the way for same sex marriage, but I can't join in your celebrations because the Supreme Court resurrected the ghost of George Wallace and overturned the Voting Rights Act ,thereby bringing Jim Crow back with a vengeance.

Yes, bigotry is dying for some,  but it's not dying when it comes to poor, black/brown people having equal rights, and now we are forced to depend on the gop infused, media enabled, TeaPublicans to give us a new Voting Rights Act.

The struggle continues.
