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:
No, this isn't about some weird law about not wearing pants like how women are allowed to go topless in NYC.
A staple for hungover hipsters everywhere is the bottomless mimosa brunch, which is a magical thing.
Who doesn't want 8 glasses of champagne and orange juice (with a splash of pineapple if you really know how to live) with their greasy eggs and french toast meal with a side of extra crispy bacon?
The problem is the State Liquor Authority has a law (not some new law, but an old one already on the books) that says bars and restaurants are breaking the law if they're:
GROSS!! Arizona Passes A DISGUSTING Bill That Gives People A "Right To Discriminate" And Is Now One Step Away From Being A Law!
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:
Kansas Lawmaker Proposes Bill To Allow Spanking Children! Even With Bruising!! WTF! What Year Is This???
We're shocked that there's still a law that allows teachers and caregivers to legally spank children.
And we're even MORE shocked that a Kansas House member wants to make it so adults can hit these kids harder!
And Kansas House member Gail Finney, D-Wichita says the bill is designed to bring back parent rights!
The bill would allow up to 10 strikes
Belgium Lawmakers Pass A Law To Give Kids The Right To DIE! Find Out Why Other Countries Might Want To Consider Doing The Same!
This is such a hard topic.
If a terminally ill child is in severe and intolerable pain, suffering to extremes, do they have the right to die? To choose their own death?
Belgium says yes, yes they do.
In a new bill adopted by the lower house of Belgian Parliament, the euthanasia rights that adults have have been extended to
Justin Bieber might end up having to pack his bags and go back home after all!
But Team #DeportBieber might get their wish granted after all!
If he’s charged AND convicted of vandalizing his neighbor with a carton of eggs, officials believe that may just be enough to order the pop star out of the U.S.
Bieber is a Canadian citizen and is ONLY allowed to live in America because of his work visa.
But if he’s convicted of a “moral turpitude” crime, immigration can deport him due to his “inadmissible” work status!
What is moral turpitude you ask?
The law states that it’s a crime involving
