Tuesday Was Not A Good Day

North Carolina:
Marriage between a man and a woman will now be the only legally recognized domestic union in North Carolina after voters Tuesday overwhelmingly passed Amendment One, a change to the state’s constitution that could take effect as early as next week. North Carolina now becomes the 30th state to adopt a same-sex marriage ban.
With all precincts reporting, 61 percent of voters supported the amendment, while 39 percent were opposed.
61%. Jesus.


An recall that only exists because of the fight for collective bargaining rights, now in the hands of someone to chicken-shit to mention them by name. This will end well.

West Virginia

Keith Judd, who is serving a 17 1/2-year prison sentence for extortion at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas, took 41 percent of the vote in West Virginia’s Democratic primary Tuesday night. He would qualify for convention delegates, if anyone had signed up to be a Judd delegate. 
Gee, I can't imagine why. 41% of the vote.


Daniel Aguirre becomes the seventh Colombian trade unionist killed this year, and the 61st since Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos took office in August 2010.
Colombia (07 May 2012) - The National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) is expressing sadness at the recent murder of Daniel Aguirre Piedrahita, the General Secretary of Colombia’s Nation Union of Sugar Cane Cutters (SINALCORTEROS).  Aguirre was assassinated on April 27 as he accompanied his wife, Helena to make a telephone call in their west-central Colombian neighbourhood.

Hey, Barack, thanks for pretending to do something about those unionist murders! Heckuva job! Now someone else is dead. Blood is on your hands.

Let's end with this:
