Heil Mittler?

Governor tries to bully Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts. Heil Mittler?
Click on image for a larger version


Dear friends of freedom,

The Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts repeatedly rules that the Massachusetts state constitution guarantees equal civil rights for all -- including the equal right of same-gender couples to marry, just as different-gender couples do.

But now Governor Mitt Romney, a Mormon Republican, tells "his" state supreme court to IGNORE the state constitution, at least until November 2006.

Newspapers often print stories about chief executives bullying judges. But such reports usually come from foreign lands, ruled by dictators.

Shall Massachusetts judges click their heels and respectfully reply, "Heil Mittler" ?

Dear Boston Indymedia friends:

When posting the above story, on behalf of SaveFreedom, I clicked on the button to allow verification of seniornude address.
Yet the article, when posted, said this address is "unverified".

*** Is the button malfunctioning?***

Mitt talks shit!

Why listen to a phoney governor? He's a one term wonder!
Equality will prevail this May!
For all the legislators who voted to put their jobs on the line? Hope they lose next election. They don't understand equality. They don't deserve their job.

I don't know! I've experienced the same thing, sometimes, and I'm an editor on the Boston IMC system. The best that I can say is that it may be a glitch, and I'll forward your problem on to the tech team.

Sorry about that! Thanks for letting us know!
What's Romney up to?
03 Apr 2004
Out in San Francisco, I try to keep track of the Mass. Marry-In. Today (Ap.3) I visited Boston Globe site; found out that the Gov. will stop asking the AG to ask the SJC to delay same-sex marriages. So far, so good.
But I suspect that Romney is still looking around for some way to prevent or delay equal rights.
What's going on???
Meanwhile, same-sex weddings are STILL available in Portland, Oregon (Multnomah County).
