“There was a long line of advocates claiming responsibility for same-sex marriage’s victory at the Supreme Court on Friday, but a key driver was the support two years ago from 278 mostly multi-national tech companies that included Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Cisco, eBay, Electronic Arts, Intel, Intuit, Oracle, Twitter and Zynga.”
You see these days it’s never about what’s good for America or “We The People” it’s all about what’s good for the multi-nationals and there most certainly is a pay-off because government always lines up with the Corportists. It’s called crony capitalism. Ditto with the extension of the EX-IM Bank, the Fast Track to Free (ha-ha!) Trade. It’s the march to globalism and the One World Order led by the elites. To hell with everyone else.
These mega-corps filed a brief at the Supreme Court in 2013 urging the overturn of DOMA (Defence of Marriage Act) and the pressure has been relentless from then until the Supreme Court ruling this week.
They claimed that the same-sex recognition by most, but not all states “needlessly burdens those companies with extra costs and bureaucratic tangles.” They complained that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) put the companies in the uncomfortable position of being forced “to treat one class of our lawfully married employees differently than another, when our success depends upon the welfare and morale of all employees.”
And don’t expect it to stop there because they won’t be happy to have gay marriage the law of the land, they’ll now go after our 1st Amendment right to free speech and religious freedom. If you disagree you’re a hater and a homophobe. They can never let it go. Businesses and individuals will purposely be targeted until they are ruined. You watch.
