Wow, over 40,000 supporters signed our petition to Taco John’s in the first few days. Let’s keep the momentum going and build pressure for Taco John’s to do the right thing.

Let’s send a clear message to Taco John’s that there is no free pass for discrimination or bullying in the workplace – and call on them to apologize for requiring Tyler to wear a name tag labeled “GAYTARD” while at work.

The best way to stop a bully is to stand up to them. Will you join us and stand up for Tyler?

Taco John’s is listening – mere hours after the launch of our campaign, the company posted a response on their Facebook page.

They said they were “deeply concerned about the reported incident in Yankton” but they sidestepped their own responsibility stating that they “do not control day to day operations of [their] franchisees, or their personnel decisions.”

In its last term, the Supreme Court handed down a number of historically damaging decisions, including its 5-4 rulings in McCutcheon v FEC, which empowered the wealthiest Americans to exercise even more control over our elections, and in Burwell v Hobby Lobby, which held that for-profit corporations have religious rights, just like people.

This year, the Supreme Court will be hearing pivotal cases regarding employment discrimination, voting rights, and free speech, and may also take up the issue of marriage equality and cases on the Affordable Care Act. The next year will no doubt be a consequential one in the Supreme Court -- join us on Thursday for a preview of what the Court may deliver in the year to come!

A Mexican federal judge sent Andrew Tahmooressi back to prison after the U.S. Marine sergeant made his first official courtroom appearance since being locked up more than three months ago for accidentally crossing the border with guns in his pickup truck.
The 26-year-old veteran of two tours in Afghanistan was finally able to tell his story to a judge, after his case had been delayed by both Mexico's unpredictable legal system and his own trouble settling on a lawyer. It was not immediately clear what Tahmooressi said at the evidentiary hearing, which was closed to the public. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for August 4.
Despite the judge's ruling, Tahmooressi's attorney, Fernando Benitez, told reporters that he was confident that the Marine's case was on the right track. Benitez said that his client's statement to the judge was "sound and made perfect sense," and claimed that irregularities with Tahmooressi's detention were grounds for dismissal of the case. The attorney said that his client was not provided with consular services for nearly eight hours after he was detained, nor did he have access to an adequate translator.

Tahmooressi has been held since March 31, when he accidentally drove into Mexico at the San Ysidro, Calif., Port of Entry late March 31, after becoming disoriented from poorly lit street signs and being in a position on the road unable to make a last ditch U-turn. His family believes his post-traumatic stress disorder also may have contributed to his confusion. He was charged with violating Mexico's strict gun laws because he had three registered guns, along with all his worldly possessions, in his vehicle.

Bringing weapons into Mexico is a violation of the country's federal law. Complicating Tahmooressi's plight at the time of his arrest was that he had military-grade weapons and ammunition, as defined by Mexican statute.
He was in the San Diego area for treatment of combat-related PTSD, having recently moved from Florida, and had all of his possessions, including the legally-purchased weapons, in his vehicle when he was stopped at the border.

"The letters will be used by the lawyers to show the deep support for Andrew and that quick resolution is important in the interest of the broader U.S.-Mexico relationship," Kasper said.
The delays in his case were precipitated by multiple changes in his defense team. Since April 28, Tahmooressi has had three defense attorneys, including Benitez.
"We're confident we finally have the right attorney for Andrew's case," Jill Tahmooressi said.
Despite the apparent sincerity of Tahmooressi's mistake, there is a likelihood the case will run its course, according to Benitez.
"This is a federal court and as in any democratic nation you will not find an executive calling up a judge and ordering the release of a suspect," Benitez told FoxNews.com after his hiring. "It makes no difference if it is a mayor, governor, or the president, there's not a phone call in the world that will change this."

A spokesman for the Mexican Embassy in Washington said that Tahmooressi was neither in a Marine uniform nor on official duty when he crossed into Mexico.
"In Mexico, as in the United States, ignorance of the law, error, or failure to understand the consequences of violating the law do not exempt individuals from responsibility, regardless of intention," said a factsheet on Tahmooressi's case provided by Ariel Moutsatsos Morales Basilio.
He said in Mexico, unlike in the United States, there is no prosecutorial discretion, and that once a prosecutor has enough evidence to suggest that a crime was committed, he or she is obligated by law to prosecute.

Mexicans and Muslims love to take the heads off of people. Soviets and Nazis didn't even do that. They were more civil. Maybe we should of let Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler have their way. There would be no Muslims, and there would be no Mexico.

If you dumb something down far enough, anyone can qualify for anything. How meaningful will that end up being?

I am pointing out that ss couples are inferior to marriage in numerous and significant ways. There will always be a sense of 'not equal' inherent in such a fallacious equating.

True equality requires that all aspects be on the table and considered. You want to eliminate all the real and living aspects of marriage, and frame it solely as a legal document. How lifeless and heartless. The very essence of marriage crushed so homosexuals can pretend and everyone else resentfully acquiesces to legal manipulations.

Why would anyone want to do this?
