Sostenemos como evidentes por sí mismas dichas verdades: que todos los hombres son creados iguales; que son dotados por su Creador de ciertos derechos inalienables; que entre estos están la vida, la libertad y la búsqueda de la felicidad. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

 

No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.
IT IS SO ORDERED.

Remember when the white wingers were hating on El Charro del Oro, the Mariachi Kid, Sebastien de la Cruz? No? Nevermind. This kid sings The Star Spangled Banner like a boss. (The old boss, Donald Trump, got fired.)

Senator Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican and GOP nominee wannabe, released this video Wednesday to promote his new autobiography A Time for Truth. Campaign officials describe the video as “musical Cliff Notes — an easy way for him to say what makes Ted Cruz roll that way.”

Here’s one from the vaults! Is it a lost track from INSANE IN THE BRAIN, the unreleased 2007 album that was the subject of speculation, lawsuits and at least two shootings? Those close to Horchata Ice won’t say. And those ties to Biggie and Tupac? Don’t go there. More cool fireworks GIFs like this one […]

Hooray! We found a new video upload from the same white winger who gleefully shared the dancing Raza 1 Racists 0 video. This new upload features the irony-impaired videographer and his know-nothing posse out on the streets waving American flags and ranting about “illegals.” Then two different guys drive by and stop their trucks, get […]

The host of YouTube’s popular True Mexico channel — he’s apparently a Brit (no name) living in Mexico City — goes out for tacos al pastor. The 1960s origin of the vertical rotary grill is a contentious Mediterranean issue with Turkey (doner kabobs), Greece (gyros) and Lebanon (shwarma) all claiming firsties. We don’t care. Nom […]
