    It's the fact that he's black that makes it a real wow. ​Good for him.

But a State Senator comes out as gay, that is his business and the people he represents back in his state senate district. I do not have a problem with it. More power to him to have the guts to come out and say so.

    Dang, I sure do wish it would have been Reid though.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Isn't it just like a sneaky faggot to infiltrate an organization, spy on the members, and then use words said in confidence against people.

    This is why we can't trust gay people!

    There's as much need to discuss it as when a heterosexual politician talks about their husband or wife, or when legislation impacts a group they are part of. The assumption that one not discuss it forgets or conveniently excuses the absolute frequency at which heterosexual behavior is a public and political pastime.

    Re: NV Senator comes out as gay

    Well again, don't care if he's gay, but what he and the dems are doing here is heinous. The PEOPLE of Nevada directly voted in a an amendment to the state's constitution in 2002 stating marriage is between one man and one woman. Attempting a legislative override of the express will of the people in a last minute rider to a bill is not a good thing no matter how you look at it.

    I know, but as I so often suggest already, what virtue is democracy when it is the rule of the mob?

    FWIW, Nevada has changed radically since 2002. I think its all those CA people who moved here but whatever the reason, it's unrecognizable now.

    When I moved here, the town was still mob run. Then it became Corporate but was still very cowboy for a long time. The housing bubble was at its very worst here and after the shake-out, I can hardly recognize the place. I'm not calling it good or bad - just very, very different.

    And I might add, people also change their views or stances on issues. Just because a state or an individual thought something back ten years ago is not necessarily the same thing the state or an individual does today. I have through the course of my lifetime changed my mind many times.

    Agreed, but this aint that. It was done through a legitimate political process designed to allow the people to directly vote on matters concerning them. Not a mob but a majority of voters.
