Right now in California, Gov. Gray Davis has on his desk AB-25 which changes the definition of marriage in the state of California.
Here is the low-down on what scum bag politicians did in Sacramento. I just visited the ca.gov website and downloaded the bill history. I will reproduce it below. First, take a look at the analysis of what this bill does (provided by the trustworthy defender of Family Privacy (CRI).
From CRI's website at http://www.capitolresource.org/hot_bills.html Domestic Partners. Reintroduces a variety of expanded benefits for domestic partners. It undermines the will of California voters who passed last year's Prop. 22. In Migdens letter soliciting co-authors for her bill she wrote, In 1999, I authored Californias first statewide domestic partners statute This new law finally recognized the needs of same sex couples and families. However, these families are still denied many of the legal protections other California families take for granted. She then explained that her new bill corrects this injustice.
AMENDMENT: The bill was amended on July 18. The word "spouse" was dropped from the bill, however, AB 25 still says, "A person related by blood or marriage means...a person's spouse or domestic partner." If this bill passes, it will equate domestic partners with husbands and wives in certain areas of California law. According to gay activists, AB 25 is the "first step" to gaining gay marriage status in California.
Now, here is the low-down on the bill's passage. Please note that the bill was passed by final concurrance only 24 hours after the bombing at the World Trade Center.

Sept. 14 (Corrected September 14. ), passed to Gov. Davis as a bill ready to be signed (only 72 hours after the attack on America.
I think what makes me so disturbed is how they played a game with the California voters (trying to use the news cycle to cover up their antics). Well, they got found out!
UNLESS someone (conservative political groups) bring pressure to bear on "moderate Democrats" and bring it to voters attention. All hope is not lost, we're 5 months away from a primary election.
It's time to start the fist fight!
(i lived there for 48 years and moved out in '99. i refused to live under a socialist boot)
Let's look at Gov. Gray-out's achievements of the past year:
(1) No electricity
(2) No health care- 3 billion drained from California from 1999-2001
(3) No civil defense plans viable for our people
like it or not, they're gonna do it,
BUT, when the mexicans takeover; are THEY gonna put up with it? don't think so...
