After Senate Debacle, House Democrats Are Holding A Sit-In Protest For Gun Control Reform! Look!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikTwitterViral: News

After the Senate rejected four gun control proposals in the wake of the country's worst mass shooting in history, Democrats in the House of Representatives decided to try a different tactic.

They're protesting.

It all started when Representative John Lewis (above, center), a veteran of the Civil Rights movement in the '60s, took to the House floor and said:

"Now is the time for us to find a way to dramatize it, to make it real. We have to occupy the floor of the House until there is action."

Then the House Dems just sat down on the floor. And they're not moving.

Senate Passes Bill That Will Require Women To Register For The Draft! But Will This Historic Policy Reach The White House??

The role of women in the military is about to get a serious makeover!

On Tuesday, the Senate approved an expansive military policy bill that would for the first time require young women to register for the draft when they turn 18.

Though the bill has its vocal opposers of conservative lawmakers, the gender equality shift had a ton of support among Republicans and women in both parties.

Although the U.S. hasn't used the draft since 1973 during the Vietnam War, the impact of the policy change would reflect the positively evolving role of women in the military.

Under the Senate bill, women turning 18 on or after January 1 2018 would be required to register for Selective Service — just like their male peers have always been forced to do — and risk the loss of federal aid by failing to register.

Among the policy's vocal supporters is Republican Senator John McCain, the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, who said:

Caught In The Grindr: Yet Another Gay Scandal Involving A Politician!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

Randy Boehning

Now how does this make sense?!

A 12-year member of North Dakota's state assembly, Republican Randy Boehning, was revealed to have a profile on Grindr, a popular app amongst gay, bi, and curious guys. The Grindr profile in question is that of ‘Top Man!' and has the description:

"Seems I haven't found mister right yet, so need to keep looking for and having fun on the way! Hit me up boys."

That's all fine and well except Boehning is actually known for repeatedly voting against a bill that, if passed, would have included sexual orientation to the state's anti-discrimination law. OH THE HYPOCRISY!

Boehning claims that an employee at the Capitol had mentioned to him that another lawmaker was going to out him if he continued to vote against bills granting equality and protection to gays.

The hard proof came forward when, Dustin Smith, a local 21-year-old claims he was sent an unsolicited picture of Boehning's penis and several other messages and leaked them to The Forum earlier last month due to Boehning's discriminatory voting.

Smith's opinion on Boehning and his voting was perfectly summed up by his statement:
