At the end of the day …. “I’m so excited”!!


~~January 1, 2015~~

The title of the song says it all.

A friend commented on one of my Facebook posts: “Only 5 more days!”

Come to think of it, she’s right … in only 5 days, if all goes according to plan, it will happen!!

~~I’m So Excited~~

The Pointer Sisters

~~Uploaded on Mar 12, 2011~~

Tonight`s the night we`re gonna make it happen,
Tonight we`ll put all other things aside.
Give in this time and show me some affection,
We`re going for those pleasures in the night.

I want to love you, feel you,
Wrap myself around you.
I want to squeeze you, please you,
I just can`t get enough,
And if you move real slow,
I`ll let it go.
I`m so excited,
And I just can`t hide it,
I`m about to lose control
And I think I like it.
I`m so excited,
And I just can`t hide it,
And I know, I know, I know, I know
I know I want you, want you.

We shouldn`t even think about tomorrow,
Sweet memories will last a long long time.
We`ll have a good time baby don`t you worry,
And if we`re still playing around boy that`s just fine.

Let`s get excited,
And we just can`t hide it,
I`m about to lose control and I think I like it.
I`m so excited,
And I just can`t hide it,
And I know, I know, I know, I know
I know I want you, want you.

#BreakingNews … Marriage Equality in Florida: Update!!


BreakNews

~~January 1, 2015~~

Will they or won’t they? Now they have to!

I can not believe that this is going to happen. I had resigned myself to the fact that it wouldn’t be a reality in my lifetime. Still with this ever-changing information flowing, it’s hard to believe. The feeling that there is still a possibility that this won’t happen is still there. 

Many do not agree with marriage equality … and have place innumerable obstacles trying to stop it. 

Let’s see where this leads.

I do know that I’m getting ready. I’m heading to the County Clerks Office the morning of January 6, 2015. 

What happens after that …. you will soon know!!

All of Florida’s 67 counties can comply with a federal judge’s ruling and issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples starting next week.

U.S. Judge Robert Hinkle issued a ruling Thursday that clarifies (January 1, 2015) his ruling on the issue

Gavel

Hinkle originally overturned Florida’s same-sex marriage ban, but there were questions as to whether it affected only Washington County, or all counties.

A stay on the ruling was set to end at midnight Jan. 5, and Hinkle said he would not extend the stay. That means on Jan. 6 counties can begin issuing marriage licences to same-sex couples.

U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle ruled New Years Day that all Florida clerks are bound by the U.S. Constitution not to enforce Florida’s gay marriage ban and that any couple seeking a license on Tuesday, January 6, should receive one.

“The preliminary injunction now in effect thus does not require the Clerk to issue licenses to other applicants,” Hinkle wrote in an order released Thursday afternoon. “But as set out in the order that announced issuance of the preliminary injunction, the Constitution requires the Clerk to issue such licenses.”

~Judge Hinkle said this in his ruling~

“History records no shortage of instances when state officials defied federal court orders on issues of federal constitutional law. Happily, there are many more
instances when responsible officials followed the law, like it or not. Reasonable people can debate whether the ruling in this case was correct and who it binds.

“There should be no debate, however, on the question whether a clerk of court may follow the ruling, even for marriage-license applicants who are not parties to this
case.  And a clerk who chooses not to follow the ruling should take note: the governing statutes and rules of procedure allow individuals to intervene as
plaintiffs in pending actions, allow certification of plaintiff and defendant classes, allow issuance of successive preliminary injunctions, and allow successful
plaintiffs to recover costs and attorney’s fees.”

ACLU

Howard Simon, executive director of the ACLU of Florida said : “This is a New Years Day present from federal Judge Robert Hinkle — he has given Florida the road map to an orderly transition to being a state that treats all its people equally.”

“We are thankful that Judge Hinkle agreed with us that the Constitution does not tolerate discrimination and that, beginning Tuesday Jan. 6, all clerks in Florida have an obligation to issue marriage licenses to couples requesting them.”

Simon said Hinkle’s “injunction has statewide impact because he found the law unconstitutional and therefore as we have been saying, no public official should be acting in accordance with an unconstitutional provision.”

“As it appears in … “

Marriage Equality in Florida …. Update!!


~~December 20, 2014~~ 

I’m not holding my breath. It’s been a roller coaster … yes, no, yes, no, yes. It’s been one obstacle after another. This can make your emotions quite raw. The feeling is one of “the powers that be” playing the game of cat and mouse. 

Plans are made, preparations in place …. then they have to be undone.

It’s not fair at all. Still waiting on the final word from the Clerks of the Courts.

We have waiting a long time to post this graphic as a community haven’t we?

Our day has arrived!! It’s okay to have tears as long as they are tears of joy! What a relief to be seen as equals in the eyes of the law and by the state we love.

Pam Bondi released a statement Friday, December 19, that read, “Tonight, the United States Supreme Court denied the State’s request for a stay in the case before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Regardless of the ruling it has always been our goal to have uniformity throughout Florida until the final resolution of the numerous challenges to the voter-approved constitutional amendment on marriage. Nonetheless, the Supreme Court has now spoken, and the stay will end on January 5.”

~~THE STAY WILL END JANUARY 5, 2015~~

Pam Bondi … Florida’s Attorney General at it again!


~~December 17, 2014~~ 

We outlasted Anita Bryant, and we will outlast Pam Bondi.

*Breaking: Supreme Court Accepts Florida Marriage Petition, Calls For Response*

Did you hear the news? Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is at it again.

Last night, December 16, the State of Florida sent a request to the U.S. Supreme Court asking them to delay marriages for loving same-sex couples in Florida.

With marriages set to begin on January 6, the decision by the Supreme Court will have a major impact on the day we’ve all been waiting for in the Sunshine State –

the day we get to marry the person we love in the state we call home.

BlackFLow

Attorney General Pam Bondi has petitioned the Supreme Court to keep the stay in place here in the State of Florida. Justice Thomas has given the couples who filed the original suit until tomorrow to respond to why the stay should be lifted.

CL4

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has accepted Pam Bondi’s petition asking to extend the stay on a ruling striking down Florida’s same-sex marriage ruling.

DECEMBER 16, 2014

Florida attorney general Pam Bondi is making one last-ditch attempt to extend the hold on marriage equality in Florida past January 5.

Federal district judge Robert Hinkle ruled the statewide ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional in August but allowed time for the state to appeal to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals until January 5. Bondi is now petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to extend the stay after the 11th Circuit denied a request for extension earlier this month.
