Same-sex marriage can resume in California

Jun 26, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KMBC-TV

The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal over same-sex marriage on jurisdictional grounds, ruling Wednesday private parties do not have "standing" to defend California's voter-approved ballot measure barring gay and lesbian couples from state-sanctioned wedlock.

Exactly. Like the financial collapse that is upon us.

The Trigger Has Been Pulled And The Slaughter Of The Bonds Has Begun
http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/t...

What does it look like when a 30 year bull market ends abruptly? What happens when bond yields start doing things that they haven't done in 50 years? If your answer to those questions involves the word "slaughter", you are probably on the right track. Right now, bonds are being absolutely slaughtered, and this is only just the beginning. Over the last several years, reckless bond buying by the Federal Reserve has forced yields down to absolutely ridiculous levels. For example, it simply is not rational to lend the U.S. government money at less than 3 percent when the real rate of inflation is somewhere up around 8 to 10 percent. But when he originally announced the quantitative easing program, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said that he intended to force interest rates to go down, and lots of bond investors made a lot of money riding the bubble that Bernanke created. But now that Bernanke has indicated that the bond buying will be coming to an end, investors are going into panic mode and the bond bubble is starting to burst. One hedge fund executive told CNBC that the "feeling you are getting out there is that people are selling first and asking questions later". And the yield on 10 year U.S. Treasuries just keeps going up. Today it closed at 2.59 percent, and many believe that it is going to go much higher unless the Fed intervenes. If the Fed does not intervene and allows the bubble that it has created to burst, we are going to see unprecedented carnage.

Markets tend to fall faster than they rise. And now that Bernanke has triggered a sell-off in bonds, things are moving much faster than just about anyone anticipated...

This is exciting and game changing. On the CA Prop 8 decision the Court stated that "any Governor who disagrees with thh politics of any law passed by the majority can KILL the law simply by failing to represent the States voting majority in the Courts.

Most Dems and Reps think we may need to drug test SCOTUS periodically during the next term.

They just gave State Governors descretionary dicatatorial powers.

State governors have ALWAYS had that power, which is why the SCOTUS denied standing to the anti-gays.
