WTF Friday: Love & Happiness Edition
SFL called me out last week for being such a Debbie Downer on a Friday, so there'll be no more of that. I wont mention this, this, this, or this. Neither will I lament over the fact that the British Parliament seems far more responsive to the will of their people than the pork gobblers we've got.
This week it's all about Love & Happiness! And really the news from yesterday makes that a little easier. Ever since the gay marriage ruling back in the dark ages of June I was left with a lot of unanswered questions. What did this ruling mean for people like myself who are married in a gay marriage state but live in a backwards penal colony like Florida? Well we've finally got some answers and they answers that I like! Yesterday the Treasury Department announced nationwide tax equality for everyone legally married, regardless of the laws of the state they live in. Not only that, but we can now file amended returns back to 2010! I've only done the rough math for my unconventional family, and it's an onomatopoeia that goes something like this ~ Cha-Ching!
But the good news doesn't end there. Gay hippies won yet another victory in the form of acquiescence from the Justice Department to Washington and Colorado's smoking new marijuana legalization laws! Is this the beginning of the end for the war on drugs? We can only hope.
And hope is a good thing. Hope springs eternal. You must remember this. A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh. The fundamental things apply as we go bi.
So here we go on our lovely three day weekend and surprise, I've got 3 years of amended tax returns to joyfully file! There is love and happiness!
