The LuLac Edition #2929, June 7th, 2015

I was watching ABC’s “This Week” today to see the interviews as usual. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker made the big splash by saying that as President he would back a Constitutional amendment by the states to keep marriage between a man and a woman.
The Supreme Court is expected to issue a decision later this month that could grant, for once and for all, same-sex couples the right to wed across the country. But Walker said emphatically today that he would support amending the constitution to protect states that still want to ban same-sex marriage.
Walker told ABC “`I personally believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. If the court decides that, the only next approach is for those who are supporters of marriage being defined as between one man and one woman is ultimately to consider pursuing a constitutional amendment."
Not stopping there Walker also said he would leave individual states to make their own decisions.
Walker may get a surprise since gay marriage has become a more personal issue for a larger younger demographic. As for older voters, while some may not buy gay marriage as an option for themselves or their peers, they know at least one person in a younger generation who is gay and in that type of relationship.
Leaving all religious and philosophical opinions aside, from a politically strategic standpoint this will play into the fact that the GOP wants to control what goes on in the nation’s bedrooms than caring about hourly wages for those families in the workplace.
Walker is the front runner in Iowa…..the others not ahead and wanting to catch up will also say “me too”. Voters notice stuff like that. 

From Facebook..........The Jobs Report in May 

A friend of mine responded to this saying the economy is in the toilet and there are 95 million people without jobs. If that were the case there would be an economic collapse. The problem is below average wages.
