Yep. We’re here everyday checking the tags, reading your asks & hoping you feel better when you aren’t feeling very well - we hope you do.

Our reply to your second ask is coming up. Click here for part 2 of 2.

Marriage inequality isn’t just a social injustice?— it’s a financial one, too.

Just ask 67-year-old Arlene Goldberg. The South Florida resident was kicked out of her home after her wife of 47 years died because she wasn’t entitled to her wife’s Social Security benefits. Without that extra money, she couldn’t afford to pay the mortgage.

“I’m trying to figure out how I am going to get through this time,” she told NBC News. “I really can’t even pay my bills.”

Student expertly photobombs anti-gay rally with accurate sign

Now this is how you photobomb. 

Twenty-two-year-old Justin Anderson, a straight, Mormon student at the LDS Business College in Salt Lake City, recently attended a “traditional marriage” rally at Utah’s state capitol building in protest of marriage equality, reports BuzzFeed. Currently, Utah’s same-sex marriage ban is pending before a federal appeals court, with federal precedent indicating that the ban will be overturned.

The Mormon-led community that congregated in the capitol’s rotunda on Sept. 18 demanded that the ban remain in place in order to save and protect children, and held placards reading “Marriage means a mother and a father for every child,” “A states’ rights issue” and “Traditional marriage blesses children.” Anderson, who attended the rally because he wants to be “on the right side of history,” was not exactly embraced by the other protesters.

Since 9/11, homegrown anti-government terrorists have killed more people in the U.S. than Islamic extremists.

But you won’t hear about that on Fox:

On the night of September 16, 31-year-old marksman Eric Frein was allegedly laying in wait outside the Blooming Grove police barracks in northeastern Pennsylvania, preparing to assassinate state troopers. Shortly before 11 p.m., Bryon Dickson was shot and killed as he walked towards his patrol car. Moments later, as he approached the barracks to begin his overnight shift, trooper Alex Douglass was shot and seriously wounded by a bullet fired from a .308-caliber rifle.

Described as a  “survivalist,” Frein disappeared into the Poconos Mountains woods where he’s been hiding ever since, eluding law enforcement and its massive manhunt, which includes hundreds of law enforcement officers with assistance from the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Considered “extremely dangerous” and possibly armed with an AK-47, officials were forced to close local schools in fear Frein might attack again. Lots of businesses in the area were ordered to stay dark, and some U.S. mail deliveries were suspended out of fear postmen might be exposed as possible targets for the shooter.

And what was the possible motivation for the killing spree?

"He made statements about wanting to kill law enforcement officers and to commit mass acts of murder," state police commissioner Frank Noonan warned the public at the time. Another official noted the shooter has a “longstanding grudge against law enforcement and government in general” dating back to at least 2006.

A friend was even more explicit.  “He was obviously a big critic of the federal government,” a friend name Jacktold CNN. (The friend did not give his last name.) “No indications of really any malice towards law enforcement in particular. Most of his aggression was (toward) the federal government.”

Sounds like homegrown, anti-government terrorism, right?

…But turn on Fox News and you don’t hear much about Eric Frein from the channel’s high-profile hosts. You don’t hear much about the anti-government zealot who murdered a cop, while trying to assassinate two. And you don’t hear evening hosts diving into Frein’s background trying to figure out what sparked his murderous streak.

There’s simply no interest.

In two weeks since the shooting, the Fox [has] mentioned Frein’s name in just six reports, and most of those were simply news updates that consisted of one or two sentences. Only one segment, which aired on On The Record With Greta Van Susteren, featured an extended conversation about the killing and the subsequent manhunt. In none of the six Fox reports however, were Frein’s vocal anti-government leanings mentioned, nor was there any suggestion Frein was a domestic terrorist…

In other words, on Fox News a Muslim who killed a co-worker in Oklahoma and who remains in police custody represents a much bigger story than a suspected anti-government assassin who killed a cop and remains on the run, eluding hundreds of law enforcement officials while terrorizing a Pennsylvania community.

Do you ever just get sad for no particular reason and then get frustrated about it and annoyed at yourself because there are people with genuine problems and I’m just being selfish for being sad because my problems are minor compared to they people and yeah anyone
