The state government is at a standstill right now, with the governor and legislature not being able to agree on state spending for the next couple of years. That means we can’t keep things up and running like rest areas or state parks right now, but sure as hell can worry about whether or not gays should be allowed to marry each other. I’m really glad to see your priorities in such a perfect order. Closed are the Minnesota state parks, the state lottery, the tourism office, state licensing boards, the Minnesota Zoo. No more road repairs. A possible loss of funding in the public transportation around here and some state-funded childcare options are going to disappear, which means not only are all of these state employees going to be losing their jobs for the time being, but people that depend on the state to help them could likely lose their jobs, too.
So, thank you, you jackasses. You’ve played these asinine games with my civil rights, but in the meantime, you can’t even keep your state up and running. I hope it was worth it.
