Now that marriage equality is the law of the land, the vitriolic right-wing preachers are calling for punishments we always equate with Islamic law, namely the stoning to death of same sex couples and people who officiate their weddings. Yes, these hate-filled bastards are that much of a cancer on our society. 

Dear Ted Cruz. Stop With The Drama Queen

Since the SCOTUS dealt some major defeats to the rights agenda last week, Ted Cruz has been on the war path.

Jim Obergefell, was the main plaintiff in the case today that legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states. He's also a fellow Cincinnatian, and seeing this picture of the Cincinnati sign outside of our convention center tonight...well it's just truly breath taking. 

SCOTUS has just handed down the much anticipated ruling on the Obamacare case on subsidies. In a 6-3 decision, the court sided with the Obama administration in keeping the subsidies. Scalia, Thomas and Alito dissented. 

Fox News and Sarah Palin are reportedly in the middle of a break-up. According to Politico, Fox News has decided to not renew the contract of the half-term Governor. 

The prosecutors weren't doing anything, so the community took action. This week they used an obscure Ohio law to make a request to a judge to review if the police involved in the shooting death of 12 year old Tamir Rice should face any charges. That was earlier this week and already the judge has found probable cause for charges of "involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide or dereliction of duty". Now we have to wait and see if a prosecutor takes up the case, as the judge does not have the power to start charges or arrest. If not, then hopefully the state Attorney General will bring in a special prosecutor. 

A Very Serious Question About The Hastert Victim's Sister Interview

Today the sister of the alleged victim of Hastert's sexual abuse spoke to ABC news. In it, she said something that really leaves me wondering.

A Way For Bernie To Secure The Tech Vote

There is one issue that candidates seem to ignore, one that costs the tech world an estimated $29 billion per year. Bernie Sanders is the perfect candidate to take on this issue and right a horrible wrong.

The Supreme Court has made two rulings today, in what is to become a couple of weeks of huge decisions. The first one involves a Muslim girl that Abercrombie and Fitch refused to hire because she was wearing a black hijab. The court called the act "discrimination".

In the second case, which involves making threats online, the high court ruled that those are protected speech, unless they are "malevolent or reckless". This kind of leaves it open as lower courts will have to define what exactly is reckless or malevolent, and it's also a blow to some victims of domestic abuse. On the other hand, we are seeing more and more police going after people for posting things like "fuck the police" on their social media accounts, and this will definitely cause trouble for overzealous police and prosecutors. 

When I read the indictment against former Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, yesterday one thing stuck out. The very first line talked about his time as a high school teacher and coach. Now we may know why. Two unnamed federal law enforcement officials say the payoffs relate to sexual misconduct with a male during Hastert's time at the school. This also goes with rumors I heard when Hastert was still in office about him being "in the closet". Those rumors came from a source I trust very much. 

Last week we found out that darling of the right, Josh Duggar, had a serious touching problem with his little sisters when he was a teen. Now we learn about a Tea Party leader and former "family values" candidate that has a kiddie porn problem. Last week, Jospeh Hayon, second President (whatever that is!) of the Brooklyn Tea Party was busted for trading child porn pictures through his email account. The victims were all children from 12 years old, all the way down to 2. Sick doesn't even begin to describe this.
