    Mary Fallin blocks same-sex benefits

    States with constitutional amendment banning gay marriage......We shall see if the SCOTUS takes up the appeal that is sure to come......I don't believe the Court will touch it with a 10 foot.........Its called states rights.

    Why do you hate our troops? I wonder how you would react if some one made it harder for you to get your military benefits just to score political points with a few people...

    The law is these service members are entitled to benefits. Do you approve of making it harder for service members to get their benefits?

    State law cannot deny federal benefits, nor is she trying to. She is simply making it harder for them to get their benefits. Applying for the benefits you are entitled to is not against the law, nor is any one claiming it is, except you since apparently you have not actually read about what you ate talking about.

    SSM is not universal. In fact there are only 13 blue states that allow it. As much as you want to redress you can't pick and choose the laws you want to obey......as I said the SCOTUS does not like to interfere in state issues.....You have all the blue states your going to get. Live with it.

    You might want to read your source article. All she blocked is guardsman applying for federal benefits they are entitled to at state guard bases. All she is accomplishing is making it harder for our service people. These people are legally married according to federal law and applying for federal benefits. Again, read your source article.

    Did you even read the post you quoted? Because you didn't address it in the least.

    They're entitled to those benefits because they are Federal benefits. It doesn't matter what your state says.

    If we strip the CONvoluted right wing spin out of this My Governor has not blocked same sex marriage benefits in the NATIONAL Guard. She simply bars STATE offices from processing same sex benefits requests. A grand total of TWO(2) were processed prior to the ban.

    OKNG soldiers can still go to Tinker, Altus, or Vance AFBs, or to Ft.Sill Army Post for IDs and paperwork processing. The way it worked in my day the NG had to go to Ft.Sill in SW OK to get IDs, medical and paperwork done anyways.

    Same Sex Marriage NG soldiers will receive their FEDERAL Benefits no matter what my governor says.

    How did the 'state right' to have slavery turn out? Since then our government doesn't put state over national- yes it will be interesting to see what the future holds...
