1. From Federal judge rules Oklahoma’s same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional by Juliet Eilperin; Fate1 (15 likes)
There’s that inconvenient Constitution again messing up the right wing’s push for restricting freedom and equality.
Democrats are working hard to make Obamacare work, which will improve the lives of millions of Americans.
Republicans are working to make Obamacare fail, thus proving there is no point in trying to fix serious problems.
Which, pray tell, is the winning position?
3. From Morning Plum: Obamacare derangement fades among Republicans (a bit) by Greg Sargent; GabsDad (12 likes)
Watch the news. The end of formal opposition will come when the first Republican refers to “Obamacare” as the ACA. It will be something like; “I stand firmly against the ACA and will continue to work towards its repeal.” That is the moment of surrender. It won’t be long now.
To me the hypocrisy of the ACC is that it steals schools from other conferences (Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Louisville) and acts like a jealous scorned pyscho ex-girlfriend if a school tries to leave. Even scheduling the ACC tournament in DC the year after Maryland leaves. I don’t think Maryland will win any lawsuit in a North Carolina court. But I’m rooting for them to pull out a legal victory and not pay any fees.
