While Indiana is busy working on new ways to treat LGBT and others as second class citizens, a southeastern Indiana county has seen more than two dozen new HIV cases in an area already plagued by the problem. This brings the total cases to 130 now, All the cases have been tied to a growing rash of intravenous drug use. 

After the anti-gay owners of Memories Pizza in Indiana raised close to a million dollars through crowd funding, a New Jersey deli owner hopes for the same. Jim Boggess, the owner of Jimbo's Deli in Flemington, New Jersey, was forced to close this week after loss of business from his stunt of declaring March "White History Month" in his store. Now Boggess has turned to GoFundMe in hopes that fellow haters will support his backwards thinking. It doesn't appear to be going that well though, as he has only raised $215 in four days.

The "pay for play" deputy sheriff who shot and killed an unarmed Eric Harris in Tulsa County was not properly trained, according to reports. To make matters even worse, actual trained supervisors were transferred by the sheriff for refusing to falsify documents stating Robert Bates was properly trained. In a just society the sheriff would now be charged as an accomplice. 

In Oklahoma a deputy sheriff pulled his gun, thinking it was his taser. What happened next? Well you can imagine - an unarmed black man, Eric Harris, was left dead. The deputy, Robert Bates, is a volunteer. It turns out the 73 year old is actually a insurance executive, who donates money to the sheriff department just so he can play cop. Yes, the rich can no pay to go out and kill average citizens. Don't we realize just how fucked up this really is? 

Now that they are approaching the millionaire club, the owners of Memories Pizza in Indiana have reopened the door, following raising over $800,000 from crowd funding to support them through the tragedy of their hate being exposed in what can only be described as one of the most ridiculous hypotheticals anyone could make up - them getting hired to cater pizza to a gay wedding. Yes, because I'm sure gay couples everywhere would want nothing more than a pizza dinner at their wedding, served by some bigots in piss-ant Indiana. 

John Kasich, our Republican governor here in Ohio, told reporters yesterday that he is keeping all options open in 2016. Kasich could be the sleeper of 2016, plus he would most likely end up getting a lot of Fox News behind him, since they are his former employer and he comes from Roger Ailes home state. He also did something shocking a couple of weeks ago, that pleased the left. He used the line item veto in a state Transportation bill to strike a provision that would have required anyone registering to vote with an out of state ID to obtain a state ID within 30 days or face fines. That provision, put in by the Republicans in the state legislation, was viewed as a poll tax to college students, who typically lean left at the polls.

I'm losing counts on how many ways Rand Paul's campaign rollout has screwed up, but here's a new one. Turns out all those pictures of people "endorsing" Rand. Well they weren't really endorsing Rand, but rather just people who a photographer took a picture of and decided to sell said picture online. In other words, all those people are nothing more than stock photos. So remember that. Rand has people endorsing him, in the land of make believe.
