Way to go Anti-vaxxers, another preventable death on your records.
Fans of Jim Carrey, his ex Jenny McCarthy, and any other anti-vaxxer out there will be pleased to learn that their efforts to keep children safe has paid off. While these fearless warriors were out there protesting California’s mandatory vaccination law, a woman quietly died of measles. But you know, it was probably due to vaccinations in the first place.

Well hurray for this.  Gov. Brown has signed a bill that removes the right to deny vaccines. Hurray.

#vaccine #vaccination  
Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday ended months of speculation by signing off on contentious legislation -- Senate Bill 277 -- that requires almost all California schoolchildren to by fully vaccinated in order to attend public or private school, regardless of their parents' personal or religious beliefs.

One more way President Obama is trying to push America forward:  by saying that the Confederate flag that flies in Charleston should be replaced.  Not forgotten but replaced. Wow.  Obamacare, gay marriage and the memorial service in South Carolina for a slain preacher.  A lot happening in the last few days :)

This really says it all from the decision:
 
The limitation of marriage to opposite-sex couples may long have seemed natural and just, but its inconsistency with the central meaning of the fundamental right to marry is now manifest. With that knowledge must come the recognition that laws excluding same-sex couples from the marriage right impose stigma and injury of the kind prohibited by our basic charter.

8 things you need to know about Bill C-51, the new "securty" bill that the Conservatives are trying to push through.  And likely will due to the majority government.


1.Bill C-51 drastically expands the definition of ‘security.’

2. It gives the government too much discretion to pick and choose which individuals and groups to target for further scrutiny.

3. It criminalizes speech acts that have no connection to acts of violence.

4. It will severely chill freedom of expression.

5. Canada’s no-fly list would become a secret list compiled with secret evidence, only reviewable through court proceedings that may also be secret.

6. It will allow government institutions like Health Canada and the Canada Revenue Agency to share information about you with the RCMP.

7. Canada already has a troubling regime of preventative arrest and detention; Bill C-51 proposes to make it even worse

8. It would give CSIS the power to act like a police force, while still allowing it to operate as secretly as an intelligence gathering service.

Bill C-51 would radically redefine the role of CSIS to include the ability to act on – rather than merely to collect – security intelligence. This ignores the lessons of history. The 1960s and 1970s saw serious rights abuses undertaken by the RCMP under its ‘security intelligence’ mandate. CSIS was created in the 1980s for the express purpose of separating Canada’s intelligence agency from its police force. As an intelligence agency, CSIS is permitted to conduct much of its work in secret, and the details of most of its activities are never revealed publically. But that’s precisely why CSIS should not be permitted to also operate as a police force: this secrecy means that rights violations by CSIS are more difficult to detect – and once detected, more difficult to remedy – than if they were the result of actions undertaken by law enforcement agencies.


Speak up, or lose more civil liberties.

Don't leave kids or pets in a hot car!!  This sheriff's deputy put himself through 25 minutes in one for learning purposes.

#preventabledeaths #hot  
Deputy Robin Regan's heart rate rose drastically and he began to suffer from heat stroke after less than 30 minutes. He said the effects would be even worse for a child or a pet.

I was on the server Proudmoore on an alt when the news broke (WoW for those of you going huh?).  Not surprising  "PROUDmoore" is very heavily populated with gays/lesbians.  So I'm just doing my regular chores in garrison and suddenly see in trade chat.  LOVE WINS!!! SCOTUS says we're all legal to marry who we choose!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.

And a happy feeling came over me, just seeing the floods of "Wow finally we're legal".  "About time". " Way to go Supreme Court" and on and on.  Anyhow very happy for people today, both those I know and those I don't know.
The Supreme Court of the United States of America has ruled that same-sex partners have a right to marry anywhere in the nation. The verdict strikes down remaining prohibitions on same-sex marriage...

Congrats to the 5 justices of the SC that saw fit to make gay marriage legal in all 50 US states. About time, guys/gals.  About time.  Congrats to all those who can now live in happily married bliss.  It's really not a religious thing at all, and the State shouldn't have say about your bedroom and private lives.  Live and let live in peace.  Happy for my friends today :)

Over double the attacks on US soil are carried out by home-grown terrorists than Jihadists.

I'm not going to use brakes, omg they CAUSE accidents, maybe, sort of, well in one case they did.  Never mind all the evidence against not using your brakes.  ONE case sealed the deal for me.

AKA people will see what they want to see in articles and ignore the facts.
 
Nice spin on the anti-vaxxer nonsense. #antivaxxer   #parody  
Guys, I wanted to let you know about a personal decision I recently made. I don’t really feel like discussing it, but I want to put my position out there. Please be respectful. This is a really long...
