All the gay news

Or at least some of the latest updates:

  • Bigots suffered a set back recently when it was ruled they had to disclose the names of their fellow bigots who contributed to bigotry in Maine last year. Now a federal judge has issued a block.
  • Bigots are being challenged in Massachusetts. It is being argued by non-bigots that DOMA is a violation of state rights. I find this argument interesting the same people arguing against this are the ones who argue for the expansion of state rights in regards to brown people in Arizona. But the difference is obvious: marriage is to be regulated by the states; immigration is federal. Of course, none of that matters to those who just hate brown and/or gay people.
  • Gay closet Republican #743,029 Roy Ashburn has compiled a stringent pro-bigot voting record in his political career. He claims he was doing it out of concern for his constituents. But now that everyone knows he likes penis (eww!!!! amirite?), he’s begun to change his stances. Crazy how that works.
  • One man in D.C. has wed 44 same-sex couples. He tried to save his eternal soul from hell by marrying a heterosexual couple, but I think God is on to him. His transgressions against the arbitrary whim of the malevolent Yahweh are definitely going to land him in hell for eternity. I mean. That’s fair.

  1. The bigots have always been around, but now they seem to have more exposure.

  2. Your right immigration is federal, but they are not putting the money they need into it. Blame republicans, democrats, tea parties, or anyone else that comes to mind but the fact is the feds are doing a piss poor job of it.

    Anyone crossing the border illegally is breaking the law and are thereafter criminals. You can say its for a better life or anything else you want but people that shoplift to feed their families don’t get off because of hungry kids at home. Breaking a law is breaking a law.

    Arizona decided in the absence of the feds doing the job they were going to enforce federal law. Our own Maine warden service enforces federal fish and game law as well as all state laws, how is this any different?

    Having read the Arizona law I don’t see there being much more risk than any other law for racial profiling to happen.

  3. Our own Maine warden service enforces federal fish and game law as well as all state laws, how is this any different?

    Immigration is solely federal. Fish and game policy operates on a different level; it must given all the different ecosystems, sometimes even between Maine rivers for the same species of fish.*

    *At least that’s the position of supporters of local adaptation. There is good evidence in favor of mixing the same species from different rivers, at least insofar as Atlantic salmon are concerned.

  4. The issue is they do not have enough personnel at the federal level up here, and so have our wardens helping. That’s why I call it the same. The problem is a lack of enforcement presence the solution is letting state and local enforcement help out.

    Consider this, If the federal government stopped providing for federal highways what would we do? Would the states let the highways fall into disrepair and disuse? Most likely they would try and maintain them.

    The federal gov’t is and has been doing a piss poor job down there.

    Why? Because republicans see Illegals as cheap labor for business and democrats see illegals as easy votes. Both are for the most part right.

    I expect it to be upheld if it goes to court.

  5. Because republicans see Illegals as cheap labor for business and democrats see illegals as easy votes. Both are for the most part right.

    You got that exactly correct. Neither actually care about the people themselves. The problem has been around for the last 50 years and no one in congress wants to deal with it.

  6. As far as “having to have papers” you have to “have papers” to get any job legally.
