Name-calling |


All of those people who support the rights of our gay and lesbian friends to enter into marriage, and thus gain equal rights to non-gays, have been dismissed as “a group of leftists” in a memorandum sent out by Representative John T. Doolittle at taxpayer expense. Is this how we want our taxes used?

He goes on to state that the “Liberal Left’s” efforts have been empowered by a handful of “Runaway courts across the country.”

Perhaps the courts recognize constitutional right when they see them. Shouldn’t an elected official do better than resorting to name-calling especially at taxpayer expense?
