We remain forever optimistic that the world will wake up one day soon and realize all couples in love deserve the right to marry!
Sadly, that day wasn't today!
The Supreme Court heard arguments this morning on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage and California's super icky Proposition 8 law, which aims to suppress the rights of gay couples.
As thrilled as we are that the government is taking the discussion of equal rights seriously, there wasn't exactly any consensus on what to do between the Justices.
According to some experts, it looks like the courts may strike down Prop 8, but do so in a way which would NOT broadly affect any other states and not really further the cause of allowing ALL couples to marry regardless of sexual orientation.
But we still wish they could have abolished ALL of these ridiculously RACIST and unjust policies!
The U.S. Supreme Court finally ruled today MOSTLY in favor of the federal government in regards to the controversial SB1070, a policy in Arizona immigration that has caused quite a bit of controversy regarding its support of blatant racial profiling. Although the 5-3 vote was largely a success, the judges upheld the arguably most CONTROVERSIAL provision, which allows police to check the immigration status of individuals while enforcing other laws!
Ch-ch-check out a news report on the semi-victory!
After the debate, the GOP nominee explained that he didn't mention the sex scandal for Chelsea Clinton's sake, telling reporters:
"I'm very happy that I was able to hold back on the indiscretions with respect to Bill Clinton. Because I have a lot of respect for Chelsea Clinton and I just didn't want to say what I was going to say."
