A teacher at Skutt Catholic High School in my town of Omaha Nebraska is getting fired because of his sexual orientation. 

Mr. Matthew Eledge has been an English teacher and speech coach at Skutt Catholic since 2010. In December of 2014, Matt Eledge  and his partner, Elliot Dougherty, made the decision to get engaged. He went to the administration to let them know, and they told him he would not be invited to teach next year. Furthermore, if he told students, he would be fired immediately. After months of contemplation, Mr. Eledge discussed the idea of postponing the wedding so he could come back to Skutt Catholic. He was then informed that he must end his relationship with Elliot. 

Obviously this is not okay and it is something that should not be happening in 2015. Unfortunately, Nebraska is a very conservative state and it is still COMPLETELY legal to fire someone solely because they are a member of the lgbtq community. If you disagree with this and think that Matthew Eledge is being discriminated against and should be able to keep his job PLEASE show your support and sign this petition. Every signature helps and is greatly appreciated!

Will Forte on filming the road trip scenes for Nebraska:

“The very end, after we completed all the dialogue stuff from the movie we actually went to Billings, Mont., and made the trip all the way to northern Nebraska and Alexander Payne followed us in this big RV. He actually had bought the RV that Jack Nicholson drives around in About Schmidt so he had had this RV and they mounted a camera to the front of it and would just drive behind us and pull up to the side of us and get all these amazing shots of that drive. But the whole time, Bruce [Dern] and I are in this car just for days and days, just talking about life and I could listen to his stories forever. He’s a fascinating, wonderful man.”

Nebraska Farmer Makes Room Full Of Fracking Supporters Go Silent With Just A Glass Of Water (VIDEO)

Sometimes all the talk in the world can’t prepare you for cold, hard reality. At a Nebraska Oil & Gas Conservation committee hearing, a room full of fracking supporters were left in utter silence when a farmer brought in three cups of fracking water and offered each of them to take a sip.

It’s a brilliant visual reminder that what’s at stake when we talk about the dangers of fracking…
