El Charro de Oro Sebastien de La Cruz sings The Star Spangled Banner at the NBA finals in 2013. This stunning performance wowed the fans and pissed off the haters. Screw the haters.

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.)


Maybe you didn’t see the San Antonio Spurs smoke the Miami Heat 104-87 for the NBA crown Sunday night, or maybe you want to relive the glory. Those wacky Taiwanese animators at TomoNews are here to help.

Meanwhile in San Antonio (NSFW video):

After the second tirade against a US-born Latino singing patriotic anthems, it’s time to say this: Racist Americans, you are officially cut off. Hand over the keys. Drink some coffee and sober up. Call a cab. Take a hike. I don’t care. Just get off the road. In the meantime, here’s a lesson on what […]
