wow The Onion is dropping a lot of truth for a work of satire
The onion isn’t satire. The onion is pure progressive rage with a thin satire coating.
So you’re saying it has layers?
“Male student, your unwanted advances and creepy staring are distracting the female students. Go home until you can get yourself together and have some self-control.”― said no one, ever (via foxy-voxy)
"Someday there may be a real panic," said Shepard Smith. "Someday, something may start spreading that they can’t control. And then, do you know what we’re gonna have to do? We’re gonna have to relax and listen to leaders. We’re not gonna panic when we’re supposed to and we’re certainly not gonna panic now. We have to stop it." Watch his full speech on Ebola here.

The State of Marriage Equality In America (UPDATED 10/17/2014): Currently, 31 states (and the District of Columbia) have marriage equality.
Here’s the full state breakdown, courtesy of Freedom to Marry.
States with Marriage Equality
For a full breakdown of where state laws stand, click here. For a full breakdown of marriage rulings since Windsor, click here. For all pending marriage litigation, click here.
In 31 states - AK, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DE, HI, ID, IA, IL, IN, ME, MD, MA, MN, NC, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OK, OR, PA, RI, UT, VA, VT, WA, WV and WI, plus Washington, D.C. - same-sex couples have the freedom to marry.
In an additional four states - KS, MT, SC, and WY - federal appellate rulings have set a binding precedent in favor of the freedom to marry, meaning the path is cleared for the freedom to marry there.
In an additional 8 states, judges have issued rulings in favor of the freedom to marry, with many of these rulings now stayed as they proceed to appellate courts: In AR, FL, KY, MI, and TX, judges have struck down marriage bans, and in LA, OH and TN, judges have issued more limited pro-marriage rulings.
In MO, the marriages of same-sex couples legally performed in other states are respected.
With these advances, a record number of Americans live in states that recognize relationships between same-sex couples:
- Over 64% of the U.S. population will soon live in a state with the freedom to marry for same-sex couples.
- Nearly 59% of the U.S. population lives in a state currently issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples state-wide.
US Native American Tribes With Marriage Equality
In the United States, federally recognized Native American tribes have the legal right to form their own marriage laws. There are ten tribal jurisdictions that legally recognize same-sex marriage: the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, the Coquille Tribe, the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians, the Puyallup tribe, the Santa Ysabel Tribe, the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, and the Suquamish tribe. The legality of same-sex marriage is currently on hold in the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians due to Michigan’s same-sex marriage ban being challenged.
States With Marriage Equality Rulings Stayed Upon Further Appeal
** In addition, in 11 states, federal District Courts or state courts have legalized SSM but those decisions are stayed pending appeals to a higher court:
- In 5 states — Arkansas, Idaho, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas— state or federal courts have legalized same-sex marriage, but their rulings have been stayed, pending appeals to higher courts.
- In two states — Kentucky and Tennessee — District Court rulings have required their state to recognize same-sex marriages made in other states.
- In two states:
- In Ohio, a District Court ruled that a person who married a spouse of the same sex in an out-of-state marriage can have their married state acknowledged, but only on her or his Ohio death certificate.
- In Indiana a District Court released a temporary restraining order requiring the state to recognize the marriage of a single specified couple who were married out of state. This was issued on compassionate grounds because one spouse is terminally ill.
We believe that these two states are the only place in the world where the act of dying causes one’s marriage to be recognized.
*** In five states, Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin, three-judge panels from the 4th, 7th and 10th U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal had upheld District Court rulings in favor of same-sex marriage. All four lawsuits were appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. On 2014-OCT-06, the Supreme Court refused to accept the appeals. That means that same-sex marriage has become legal in all five states. Marriage equality was also be attained in six additional states over which the three Circuit Courts have jurisdiction. This is expected to occur immediately or in the near future. These are: Colorado, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Wyoming, This bring the total number of states where same-sex couples can freely marry to 30!
**** In one state — Nevada — a District Court ruled against same-sex marriage!
