Department of Labor hosts same sex marriage.

I sit here shaking my head. The left isn't happy unless they rub our noses in their affairs. They claim it cost the citizens nothing. How could it not?!



In the latest sign of just how far the administration has embraced same-sex marriage and the expansion of federal benefits to married gay couples, the Department of Labor headquarters building hosted a rooftop wedding between a worker and his partner Wednesday night.

Officials confirmed Thursday the wedding between a regional solicitor and his longtime mate. A reception in a conference room followed. No names were offered.

An official called it a “low-key” ceremony during which no federal funds were used. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez did not attend.

It is believed to be the first-ever same-sex marriage in a Cabinet-level headquarters building.

The wedding marked the latest demonstration by the administration and prominent Washingtonians to endorse and support same sex marriage. Before the wedding at the Frances Perkins Building at the base of Capitol Hill, Perez ordered that legally married same-sex couples be offered the same federal rights as other married couples when it comes to pensions, 401(k)s, health plans and other employee benefits, even if they live in states that don't recognize their union.

No to weddings on New Hampshire farm.

HENNIKER, N.H. —A Christmas tree farmer in Henniker has sued the town over a zoning board's vote to deny him the right to host weddings and other events on his farm.

State law allows "agritourism" to attract visitors to farms for "enjoyment of the farm environment" in addition to educational activities, eating at a farm and staying overnight.

The Concord Monitor reported that the Henniker zoning board voted in February against allowing Stephen Forster to host weddings and events on the farm. He sued to appeal the decision in Merrimack County Superior Court earlier this month.

The town said agritourism doesn't allow such gatherings, although Agriculture Commissioner Lorraine Merrill wrote a letter last year that indicated that on-site weddings could be included in the definition of "enjoyment of the farm environment."

Forster said he uses the event business at his 98-acre farm to supplement his income beyond the revenue from his Christmas trees.

"They gave us an overwhelming amount of latitude by that one paragraph (about agritourism) on how to produce an income because they don't want the farms to go by the wayside," said Forster, who has been living on the property for more than three decades.

How many heterosexual couples have been married there? And since when do reception rooms come free. Last I heard, you have to rent them. What a big joke that whole thing is!

And that Christmas tree farm is another ridiculous thing. Why can't he have weddings there? Who is it going to bother. If local governments keep on spending and therefore raising taxes, people have to do something to pay their property taxes.

The left thinks this is the correct way to run our country!
