From my vantage point, the recent Supreme Court decisions will lead to more litigation, more years of suspense and many people scratching their heads on the intentions.
I applaud the decision to force Congress to stop rubber Stamping the Voter's Rights Act and prove there's a necessity. As is, it's unconstitutional. Any changes will require hard data, and I don't think many will like the locations where discrimination is apparent.
As far as the ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act, that's been left to the states, which is where it should be at the worst. At best, no government agency should have anything to do with marriage; that's a personal oath only. If states want to offer contracts to individuals that wish to share assets, that's acceptable....just don't call it marriage.

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
