Bad spin and wishful thinking by Dana.
I”m getting dizzy...
No, she’s right.
DOMA was signed into law by Bill Clinton.
It makes no sense that conservatives are sorry to see it go.
Personally I like the idea that federal government should NOT be involved in marriage in any way. The conflict that I see is that the court totally disregards the constitution to approve Obamacare by saying the penalty for not buying insurance is really a tax even though prior to that the administration swore that it was NOT a tax. They have said that it is constitutional to require someone to purchase something and charge them a tax if they don’t do it. Logically if the government can do that then they could require someone to marry a monkey and levy a tax if they don’t do it. The Obamacare decision basically eliminated any restriction on federal government power but then they turn around and claim they LACK the power to regulate marriage. It reminds me of someone who qualifies for disability on the basis of injury but then is able to go and fish, hunt, dance, roof his own house or anything else that suits him.
As I see it the supreme court is now utterly useless to the cause of freedom. We may as well give the executive branch a rubber stamp to use to approve whatever they wish.
