    Yes. It's to bring their non-heterosexual married/civil unioned couples up to parity with their heterosexual married couples in terms of the marriage tax penalty for spousal health insurance. I fail to see what the big deal is.
    When they "Nudge. Shove. Shoot.",
    Don't retreat. Just reload.

    I've been seeing this story bubbling up to the surface through various channels and it always amazes me how little thought some people put behind their knee jerking. Or whatever they prefer to jerk while thinking of the rights, privileges, and immunities of marriage being conferred upon non-heterosexuals.

    Alrighty then.....glad to see another post take a nose dive right out of the gate!!!

    I posted this for general information, not as a knee jerk or anything else...I didn't include any personal opinions, any angry emoticons, etc.

    Have a lovely day CIB..... let me know which school district you are teaching in so I can make sure I have no loved ones attending!

  7. Google can do whatever it wants with it's money. Now this would be a different story if federal employees were given this kind of compensation.

    No. That would be a slightly different issue and two weeks ago.

    Homosexual couples will get family leave, federal source says | NOLA.com

    Obama allows more rights for homosexuals

    Among the changes will be that gay partners of federal workers will now receive long-term health insurance,
    Which is what Google is doing now. If anything, Google is a Johnny-come-lately to this federal party.
