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!
For those who missed the amazing performance, the singer destroyed snippets of We Fell In Love, Only Girl, Where Have You Been, and other bangin' singles. The crowd absolutely loved every minute of it!
To make matters even better, the gorgeous gal is NOT done for the evening. Apparently the 28-year-old will perform THREE more times tonight -- #blessed, y'all!
