Arizona Governor Vetoes Anti-Gay Bill! Hooray!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikTwitterNews

arizona governor jan brewer vetoes anti gay bill senate bill 1062

Finally! Some good news out of Arizona!!

The state's Republican lawmakers recently pissed off, well, everyone when they passed Senate Bill 1062, a measure which sought to legally condone many types of discrimination under the guise of protecting religious freedom.

Thankfully, mercifully, Governor Jan Brewer has come to her senses — just moments ago she VETOED that horrible, hateful bill instead of signing it into law!

Did Arizona's Republican governor veto it because the angels on her shoulder begged her to do the right thing? Or did she succumb to the pressure of all the pundits, politicians, and private companies who were calling her state out for passing such a preposterously mean-spirited bill in the first place?

We don't know, but she did tweet this:

GROSS!! Arizona Passes A DISGUSTING Bill That Gives People A "Right To Discriminate" And Is Now One Step Away From Being A Law!

Filed under: PolitikSad SadZooey DeschanelGIFsNews

arizona discrimination bill is close to passing

This is such a fail, Arizona.

We can't even believe something like would even be proposed, let alone PASSED in 2014.

Arizona has passed a bill basically giving people the "right to discriminate" against others based on their religious beliefs.

Ughhhhhhh, don't we have separation of church and state for a reason?!

Basically, the bill allows people, companies, and religious bodies the right to use their religious beliefs as a legitimate defense in a lawsuit for discrimination.

Aka if someone refused to hire an employee based on the fact that they were, say, gay or even a single mother, the company could defend themselves by saying it was against their religious beliefs to hire said person.

Gross, gross, groooooosssssss.

Republican representative Steve Montenegro defended the law by saying:

Did Lea Michele's Letter Push NY's Governor To Crack Down On Puppy Mills??

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has got the right idea!

The governor signed a bill that will allow local municipalities to enact and enforce their own laws regarding commercial dog breeding facilities, aka puppy mills.

The law not only allows them to regulate themselves, but also makes it easier to crack down harder on breeders than ever before in New York, which now means that pet dealers will be able to oversee how the pups are raised as far as health and safety conditions are concerned.

Local governments can even require that pet shops only sell dogs raised in a healthy, safe environment, basically denying puppy mills the ability to sell dogs.

The bill was supported not only by the Humane Society of the United States but also Lea Michele!!

Lea had literally written NY's governor a letter only a few days before he signed the new bill, writing:

Boston Airport Apologizes For Holding A Fire Drill Involving Burning Plane On 9/11 Anniversary!

Filed under: Oops!

drill3(1)

Ugh. We…can't…even…

Officials at Boston's Logan Airport issued an apology after goofing big time!

Massachusetts Port Authority decided to hold a full scale fire drill at the airport in question, with smoke and flames and literally a mock plane on fire, on the 12th anniversary of 9/11.

We'll let those of you who were drinking while reading that last sentence continue your spit-taking for the next 3-5 minutes.

In their defense, Logan Airport tweeted that the smoke and fire were part of a drill, but not in their defense, who follows airports on Twitter?!

Meanwhile, Logan Airport's Facebook page received dozens of complaints, including one from an upset person who had this to say on the faux-pas:

"That is ridiculous. Have some respect. People died 12 years ago on flights originating out of your airport. How dare you."

Yeah, the last thing any traveler wants to see on 9/11 is smoke and fire on any airfield! What the shizz were they thinking?!

By noon today, Massachusetts Port Authority wised up and issued this apology:
