In yet another of the endless line of lame, no chance in hell last ditch efforts by anti-gay groups and individuals to try to stop same-sex marriage in California. The California Supreme Court has once again, and rightfully so shot down the latest lawsuit brought forth that would have halted county clerks from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
SCOTUSblog has the news:
For the second time in the past eight days, the California Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to order county clerks across the state to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. In a brief order, without a noted dissent, the state court turned down a plea by the clerk of San Diego County to halt all such licensing until the legal status of the “Proposition 8″ ban is further clarified.
The state court is still considering two pleas to keep “Proposition 8″ intact throughout most if not all of California, on the theory that it remains binding in the state despite a federal judge’s 2010 decision striking it down in the case of two same-sex couples. One of those challenges is by the sponsors of the ballot measure, the other by the San Diego County clerk. State officials and the clerks of 20 other California counties are resisting those requests.
It’s time that these losers stop beating this dead horse. It’s glue. It’s over. And its time that they give up.
“Tina! BRING ME THE AX!’
The United States Senate today voted 56-43, NOT TO APPROVE a motion to invoke cloture and move to consideration of the National Defense Authorization Act, containing both the DREAM Act and the DADT repeal amendments.Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid voted “no” on the motion to invoke cloture, reportedly a procedural move so he can bring the bill back to the floor at some point for another vote. If Reid had voted “yes”, that would not be possible.
All Republicans voted “no.” (FUCK YOU ALL!) And aside from Reid as noted above, the only two Democrats who voted “no” were Sen. Blache (Lame Duck) Lincoln and Sen. Mark Pryor, both of Arkansas.
The probability that a DADT Repeal will now bw passed over the next few years if the Republicans take the Seante in November are almost ZERO.
This is not unexpected, but still beyond fucking disgusting. And as for the COMPLETELY FUCKING USELESS Democrats and our “fierce advocate” they have but a few days to seize the moral high ground here and issue an immediate executive order stopping all DADT dismissals but most probably the next kick to the balls will be Obama and the DOJ appealing the court ruling that found DADT unconstitutional.
Only in the US Senate can a vote of 56-43 be a loss. Sheer madness..
And speaking of Madness. The Democrtaic Senate Press Conference will not have actual groups were involved in the repeal effort standing there but none other Joe Solmonese, President, Human Rights Campaign!
God, I need a drink. And a VISA.
