- Offered without comment (although a lot of jokes come to mind):
Although a Utah court has ruled that same-sex marriages can proceed in the state, one politician there is taking it upon himself to try to stop them.
Trestin Meacham, who once ran for a state senate seat as a member of Utah’s extremist Constitution Party, is now drawing attention to himself by saying he will not eat until Utah’s legislature willingly disobeys the federal government by reinstating its ban on same-sex marriages. [...]
Meacham says he has not eaten since December 21st, and has lost 25 pounds. He will only begin eating again, he insists, once the state legislature nullifies federal law and passes another ban on same-sex marriages.
- Not sure how this one flew under the radar, but here's another example of the sucktitude of Politifact:
We’ve heard people give lots of reasons for opposing Obamacare. But until a reader sent us some Internet links recently, we hadn’t realized that one of the fears being spawned by Obamacare was that it could usher in legal beheadings across America.And no, Politifact, giving this a "pants on fire" rating doesn't help.
- Check out this map showing the "140F degree Apparent Temperature difference across the U.S. today."
- Republican Rep. Aaron Schock has been in the news recently:
Is Aaron Schock a victim of bullying?
There’s a rather odd allegation being made, in some circles, that anti-gay Republican congressman Aaron Schock is a victim of “bullying” because many critics, myself included, are openly questioning Schock’s sexual orientation. I did it in a punny way, poking fun at his rather-gay Instagram posts, while others were more direct. [...]
While some call it “outing,” I’d call it “questioning.” I don’t know if Aaron Schock is straight or gay. I do know, however, that he’s virulently anti-gay and sets off my rather-reliable gaydar, repeatedly and often. And that troubles me. It’s bad enough for any member of Congress to be anti-gay. Anti-gay members of Congress not only harm the gay community legislatively, but they also harm us culturally, and physically. Anti-gay members of Congress help to buttress, and feed, a culture of homophobia in this country that harms gay youth (and all of us) in a very real way, including many youth who either consider, try, or succeed in committing suicide.
- Uh oh: What are the Marines not telling the Navy?
A 28-year-old Colorado man was shot to death late last month after a someone in his hunting party mistakenly identified him as a coyote.
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin brought us Jonathan Chait's "After Obamacare Is No Longer Doomed, It Will Become a Scandal," and its reference to the startlingly stupid assertion that the ACA will usher in an era of legalized beheadings. Maggie Mahar's "Anatomy of an Obamacare 'horror story,'" plus a glimpse inside what remains of the Republican mind in "GOP confident Obamacare is a winner in 2014." The exciting conclusion of "When 'Life Hacking' Is Really White Privilege." The emerging story of the late Rep. Bill Young's first family. Murders are down pretty much everywhere. Is it about gun laws? Or some combination of pretty much everything in the world?
