My husband just wrote a check to the Dallas County tax office for $10,266.16, which represents the 2011 property taxes assessed for our house.  With those taxes I fell like we should be living in a house like the above photo- a mansion- but we live in our single-story, three bedroom, two and half bathroom house.

Like I post every year on this blog, my husband and I pay property taxes, we pay income taxes, we pay sales taxes to our local, state, and federal taxing authority.  We happily pay taxes, because the U.S.A. is the greatest nation in the world.  We pay equal taxes, but we don't have equal rights.  It's ridiculous.

I want the freedom to marry the person I love, anything less than marriage equality is unacceptable.
