Florida Keys Judge Overturns Same Sex Marriage Ban!

florida keys judge overturns same sex marriage ban

Whoo! America's wang is one step closer to getting the gay loving it needs!

Thanks to a judge in the Key West, Florida's same sex ban has been overturned!

Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia ruled on Thursday that a gay couple must be allowed to wed, and will be issued licenses on Tuesday!

Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones, who have been together for over eleven years, sued for their right to a marriage license.

Judge Garcia's ruling flies in the face of Florida's 2008 Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, but unfortunately it only affects Monroe County- in other words, the Florida Keys.

Well, we all know how "just the tip" ends! Get ready for the future, Florida!

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Blames The Historical Error On Rolling Stone's Cover On, Who Else, Veep's Mike!

Filed under: TV NewsTwitterSkin

julialouisdreyfusrollingstone

We founding father the historical mistake in Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Rolling Stone cover earlier? Can you spot it?!

Okay, so for all you who don't get excited reading the Federalist papers, or know your Bill of Rights from 1 to 10, the John Hancock tramp stamp on Julia's lower back is from the Declaration of Independence, whereas the text scrawled all over Julia's upper back is from the Constitution!

No, thank you, Schoolhouse Rock!

As you probably could've guessed, Julia responded to the error in the most Vice Presidential way possible…blaming someone else on Twitter:

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersBusted!

2 chainz crew tried to defend against search with constitution

Well, at least they tried?

We already told you 2 Chainz and his entourage were arrested after being involved in a nine-hour standoff with cops over their tour bus being searched when it was suspected marijuana was being used on board.

And if you thought the cray cray ended there, guess again!

While 2 Chainz's crew was not up for the bus being searched, it seems they turned to

Conservatives In DC Already Talking About Restoring DOMA?

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitik

doma

What a bunch of spoilsports…

On the heels of the Supreme Court overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, there's already talk that conservative representatives in Washington will try to restore DOMA! We'll wait until you finish yelling "whaaaa?" at your computer screen.

Representative Tim Huelskamp of Kansas said the following in response to today's verdict:

“My response to this will be later this week to file a federal marriage amendment."

Yeah, good luck with that, Tim! Oh, and just FYI, amendments to the Constitution began as a way to prevent the federal government from infringing on citizens' liberties, not as a way to get rid of hard earned freedoms. Meanwhile, thousands of Americans, of all sexual orientations, are celebrating this monumental victory at rallies across the country! Tim, we think you'll have better luck trying to file a noise complaint than a constitutional amendment.

Bruce Willis A Die Hard Gun Rights Advocate?!

Filed under: Bruce WillisLegal MattersPolitikViolence

bruce willis gun controlBruce Willis took a break from shooting bad guys to shoot his mouth off about gun control recently.

The A Good Day To Die Hard star said:

"I think that you can't start to pick apart anything out of the Bill of Rights without thinking that it's all going to become undone. If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn't they take all your rights away from you?"

Yippee-kay-yeah, oh…. We hope you tied a firehose around your handsome self before falling down that slippery slope!

By that logic, wouldn't we have to allow people to own nuclear weapons, or else the whole system will crumble!? We already tailor the laws to within reason! The argument is just about where the line should be drawn.

So what does Bruce believe will help end America's problem with gun violence? He says:

Ann Coulter, A Month After Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre: Gun Crime In America Is Not A Problem For "White Populations"

Honestly, we can't even tell you what's more hurtful and sickening here:

That this woman honestly, truly believes all of the hateful, racist nonsense that she shamefully spouts out or that there are people all over this country who support those beliefs.

Although we hate to add to Ann Coulter's already delusional, engorged ego by allowing ourselves to get worked up over her latest hate-spewed tirade against common sense and logic, the right-wing political commentator has truly outdone herself this time while appearing on last night's Hannity to give her latest opinion on the current gun violence debate in the United States.

Make sure you haven't just eaten, because you'll most definitely lose your lunch when you watch (above)!

Yeah.

All we have to say here is that even if that what-sounds-to-be-a-BS statistic about the rates of gun violence in "white communities" compared to "other demographics" is even true in some deliberately limited fashion, how DARE she blatantly ignore the social constructs and institutionalized racism that bleed through our country's politics, legislation, and economy that keep individuals living in poverty, stuck with life-long stigmas preventing them from access to real opportunity, and desperate to do what they have to just to live with a FRACTION of the comfort her lifestyle allows.

Of course, that's also ignoring the fact
