Legally, the SCOTUS must declare gay marriage to be legal throughout the United States

The 14th Amendment is really quite clear. No law may be passed which pertains to one group of law-abiding citizens of the United States, which does not apply to others. Here is how "Section 1." of the 14th Amendment reads from the Cornell University Law School:
"Section 1.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

STAINBROOK NEEDS YOUR MONEY TO FUND A LONG SHOT LAWSUIT

Toledo Tea Party gets it right on where the money goes!

Stainbrook just pulled in Rick Perry for his Lincoln Day Dinner. Which pulled all the local Republican politicians in with numbers enough for a possible $22,000 in receipts before expenses, and you know where that money is going?

Not for candidates or funding of the party's operating expenses, but, towards a long shot law suit the party chair has launched against our own Secretary of State Jon Husted.

Europe thinking about making English its official language

Tagged:  

I just returned from an extended business trip to Europe. If you haven't traveled there, you might be surprised to learn that English is the unifying language. Very seldom did I run into a social or business situation where the European with whom I was interacting couldn't communicate in English.

There is a growing trend within European Union nations to make English the official language. How ironic. At a time when U.S. companies are making you "Press 1 for English" and ATMs require choosing from a menu containing Spanish, Mandarin and Arabic, the land of many languages is thinking of making English its multi-country language.

As everyone remembers D Day

Today I've seen a lot of people talking about the landing of D Day.

It is in an important event. One that showed the difficulty in the mission and the sacrifice so many have been willing to make for so many more. However, every year I hear about the landing it reminds me of so much more.

Would this man be justified having shot two officers?

http://www.11alive.com/story/news/local/2015/06/01/man-says-he-was-haras...

This man was open carrying his weapon legally when Police questioned him. After expressing his rights they followed him to his vehicle.

Now according to some Swampbubbles posters following a person is akin to an attack. So would this man not be justified in shooting the police at the airport?

Watch What Happens Now

The actions against the Baltimore officers will play throughout the legal system and they will be found not guilty. They have become sacrificial souls. The thin blue line will dissappear for a period of time. Those who wanted to police themselves will find out what that really means. Good luck to you and keep your head low.

The Ghost of Emmett Till

In the 1950's a fourteen year old teenager (Emmett Till) was viciously murdered.in Mississippi. That event, more than any other atrocity, sparked the Modern Civil Rights Movement. Here we are again on the verge of the social unrest that defined that era. In many ways America has changed for the better. Millions of Americans who couldn't vote can now vote and discrimination in public places and the workplace is against the law. Slowly the rights of these Americans have eroded, highlighted by the Gestapo attitude and tactics against people of color that has resurfaced.

A Balck man is killed by Police in the US Every 28 hours

Police officers, security guards, or self-appointed vigilantes extrajudicially killed at least 313 African-Americans in 2012, according to a recent study. This means a black person was killed by a security officer every 28 hours. The report notes that it's possible that the real number could be much higher.
