Ft. Bragg to close?

Raleigh, N.C.- In light of the United States Supreme Court's ruling striking down, as unconstitutional, the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Congresswoman Virginia Foxx, Republican, North Carolina, was asked what she intended to do in regards to the thousands of military personnel stationed in her state, who now have federally recognized marriage equality rights that contrast with the state's recently passed constitutional amendment outlawing same-sex marriage. Congresswoman Foxx replied that she would have to consider moving all federal workers, including the military, out of her state.

When asked if the loss of the eight military bases, and thousands of other federal employees, would significantly and adversely effect the local and state economy of the state, she claimed that there are enough like-minded people across the country who would be willing to move into the state to take up the economic slack, when they see the strong stance North Carolina is taking to uphold "traditional" marriage.

Foxx, who ignited national outrage with comments on the floor of Congress, that called the death of gay teen Mathew Shepard, a "hoax", has been a strong opponent of same-sex marriage rights. When satirical absurdity hits so close to an elected official's persona, it is clearly time for a change.

Could we have a source for this please?

I don't know who BlewNC is

But I've added "snark" and "satire" tags to the post.

I had the same first reaction, which is a sad commentary on the state of our state that something like this could even possibly be considered serious.

Suggest it

I'm sure if someone suggests it to Foxx, she'll probably think it's a great idea.

Hmm....perhaps I should write her a letter...

You might actually get a response!

I've written dozens over the years and can't even get the time of day.

It is too cool.

It doesn't matter if it is true or not, it makes a great story. Just the fact it is believable is enough testimony. If it didn't get published, she may have said it, if she didn't really say it she may have thought it. You tagged it right. Satire.

Well Said

It's believable because she and the other wing nuts probably did think how great it would be if all the gay people moved out of their state...and maybe that's their underlying strategy for their pain infliction on various groups: to get all the women and minorities and poor people and most seniors to move out of their state so that they can establish Glenn Beck's nirvana here.

You only have to read the last line in the post to context the entire post.
