"In a fast-changing culture," asks the Washington Post, "can the GOP get in step with modern America?" Short answer: sure, just as the 76ers can make the NBA playoffs next season. But more likely Republicans will pretend to embrace societal changes in order to get power, and then once in power, do all they can do to roll them back. Hey, it worked for them in 2000. (Oh, and the first sentence of paragraph 15 should read "would be a profound shift," not "is a profound shift." "Liberal" media think we can't read.)
Despite the Supreme Court's ruling, five states plan to dig in their heels and oppose the new gay marriage reality in some way -- including preventing states from issuing marriage licenses at all! Which would never survive a Supreme Court challenge now, but in the meantime, dig how right-wing morons now all think they're Rosa Parks! Of course, Rosa Parks was personally oppressed by laws forcing her to the back of the bus, whereas no law compels heterosexuals to marry someone of their own gender.
Ho hum, CNN reports spotting an ISIS flag at a gay rights rally in London that turns out to be a flag depicting icons of sex toys. I'd be inclined to assign at least some of the blame for such confusion to the flag-maker, but not this time -- you see what you want to see, and I'd actually prefer to think someone totally trolled CNN, which should tell you my opinion of CNN.
ProPublica describes state/corporate efforts to kill community broadband efforts. If your tolerance for corporate whining is already low, don't read this article, lest plaints like "taxpayer money should not fund potential competitors to private companies" blow your blood pressure. (Seriously: big corporations won't build out to rural/poor urban areas in the heartland, but shouldn't have any competition? Bunch of diaper-loaded brats.)
Pennsylvania pharmaceutical corporation Mylan "inverts" into a Dutch corporation to avoid American taxes -- then wants FTC protection from a hostile takeover because they're still basically an American corporation! I've never rooted for a hostile takeover before, but I'm rooting for this one. By the way, excellent job messaging on the part of CTJ -- the post's full title is "Mylan to U.S. Government: We Want Everything for Free," as if they're the real welfare queens or something.
Finally, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says Republicans should take the anti-gay marriage plank out of their platform. But he adds that they should fight for the "religious liberty" to go on discriminating against people -- and the "religious liberty" "fight" will extend to the "conscience" of county clerks who give out marriage licenses -- so his promise is really a null one. Also, see first paragraph above.
