Alaska . . .
No Civil Unions are recognized by the state . . . . whether they be between same sex partners or opposite sex partners . . .
Now, strangely enough, the Alaska Supreme Court just rules that the same benefits given to married hetero couples must be given to gay couples. WTF? I mean, I'm okay with the ruling, but it's rather moot - if they don't recognize them (either of them) as couples in the first place, does this make any sense?
What is bizarre - and will certainly wind up in court - is that a hetero unmarried couple isn't qualified for shit. Now how's that for bizarre.
Some private companies here pay the benefits regardless, but in the eyes of the State, it doesn't matter.
Rather disappointed in the State in this regard . . .
FOR THOSE THAT FOUGHT FOR IT, FREEDOM HAS A FLAVOR THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW OR UNDERSTAND
