If Republicans claim they are the party that supports equal pay, they sure do have a confusing way of showing it. The Senate GOP unanimously voted to block, the Paycheck Fairness Act Monday evening..

The measure would have banned salary secrecy and discouraged unequal pay scales to help close the gender wage gap..

This seems an odd move from the party that recently tweeted this message:

This #LaborDay, the White House & Democrats believe paying women less than men is an acceptable practice.

The GOP has voted down several versions of the bill over the last four years..

What the White House & Democrats 'really' believe paying women less than men..

Where We Stand on Equal Pay for Equal Work..

Ninety-four years ago, American women officially won the right to vote when the United States certified the 19th Amendment to the Constitution..The fight to secure that intrinsic right took generations, and nearly 100 years later, women continue to face persistent inequality and discrimination..

In 2014, women are still fighting to make the principle of equal pay for equal work a reality..Though more and more women are becoming the primary breadwinners in their families, they continue to make less than their male counterparts at all income levels -- a gender pay gap that only widens as people get older..

In fact, women who enter the workforce after graduating college are paid less in almost every field of study..

By age 65, the average woman will have lost $431,000 over her working lifetime because of the earnings gap..For women of color, that disparity is even wider..

This persistent wage discrimination is not only an affront to our founding principles of equality, it is a significant drag on our economy..If women received the same pay as their male counterparts, our economy would produce $447.6 billion in additional income..

President Obama has taken action to close this gap, starting with the first bill he signed into law, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act..This legislation gives employees the time necessary to confirm wage discrimination and to challenge continuing pay discrimination without being penalized if they aren’t initially aware of the discrimination..

The President also took executive action to strengthen enforcement of equal pay laws:
• An Executive Order prohibiting federal contractors from retaliating against employees who choose to discuss their compensation, thereby helping workers discover potential violations of equal pay laws and seek appropriate remedies..
• A Presidential Memorandum that establishes new regulations requiring federal contractors to submit data on employee wages that includes data by sex and race..The Department of Labor will use this data to encourage compliance with equal pay laws.

But the President cannot act alone..Congress must help make equal pay a reality by passing the Paycheck Fairness Act, legislation that would ensure that the standards President Obama is putting forward by his executive action apply to all employers across the country.. Unfortunately, Senate Republicans have already blocked action on this legislation four times and Republicans continue to block action in the House..

Women have made significant strides over the past 94 years, becoming leaders in almost every facet of American life..But there is more work to do to ensure that women receive the equal rights, equal treatment, and equal opportunity they deserve to reach their potential.. Because when women succeed, America succeeds..

Senate Republicans voted unanimously last week for elections that are competitions of cash, with candidates who amass the most money empowered to shout down opponents..

The GOP rejected elections that are contests of ideas won by candidates offering the best concepts..Forty-two Republican Senators on Thursday opposed advancing a proposed constitutional amendment called Democracy for All..It would have ended the one percent's control over elections and politicians..It would have reversed the democracy-destroying Citizens United and McCutcheon decisions by permitting Congress and state legislatures to once again limit campaign spending..Republicans said no because they favor the system that indentures politicians to wealthy benefactors..

As it stands now, corporations and billionaires may spend unbounded and unreported billions to buy elections..They're likely to invest $2 billion in this fall's contests..That's thanks to the activist, right-wing, so-called justices on the Supreme Court who upended a century of campaign finance law with rulings like Citizens United in 2010 and McCutcheon this year..

The result is that everyone retains their free speech rights, but the wealthy and corporations, who can afford gigantic amplifiers, can now use their money to buy the loudest voice, one that overwhelms and silences those of tens of millions of working Americans..The right-wingers on the Supreme Court said it was fine for the wealthy and corporations to use their money to drown out the pleas of the non-rich.. And Senate Republicans agreed last week..

This has made the majority of Americans very, very cynical about politicians and elections..The typical voter knows his or her $5 or $25 or $100 contribution to a candidate can't compete with the $10,000 or $100,000 or $1 million gifts from corporations and billionaires..

Americans aren't stupid..They knew what big bucks buy..

They pay for access..The Senator will make time to see the CEO whose corporation donated $250,000..The Senator won't do the same for the worker who gave $25..

Big bucks also buy votes..Americans believe politicians' positions on issues are the ones that the biggest benefactors told them to take..In private meetings, of course..A poll by the Opinion Research Corporation in 2012 found that 68 percent of voters, including 71 percent of Republicans, think that a corporation that spends $100,000 to help elect a Congressman could successfully pressure him to change position on proposed legislation..

While Republican politicians celebrate that outcome, most Americans do not..And that includes Republican voters..A poll in July by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research found 73 percent of voters in the 12 most competitive Senate battleground states want the Citizens United ruling reversed, including significant majorities of Republicans..

In 2012, Montana voters passed a referendum by 74 percent telling the red state's congressional delegation to support a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United..In purple Colorado, voters passed a similar referendum by 73.8 percent..Fourteen other states, the District of Columbia and 600 communities have called for reversal of Citizens United..

Still, Senate Republicans, groomed by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, ignored the sentiments of the majority of citizens and blocked the Democracy for All amendment..McConnell, who once supported a similar constitutional amendment, now praises unlimited, unregulated, undisclosed campaign contributions..He told a group of fat cat GOP donors in June that he just didn't know where he'd be without them..

Well, not in office, that's for sure..He would be in far greener - " as in greenbacks - " pastures, cleaning up with former House GOP Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who lost his primary this year, then quickly resigned so he could grab $1.8 million as vice chairman at a Wall Street investment bank..Wealthy donors and corporations reward their indentured servants even when they lose elections..

Republicans didn't always endorse this corruption..Conservative GOP Sen. Barry Goldwater, the party's nominee for President in 1964, supported campaign finance reform in 1983, saying: "Our nation is facing a crisis of liberty if we do not control campaign expenditures..We must prove that elective office is not for sale..We must convince the public that elected officials are what James Madison intended us to be, agents of the sovereign people, not the hired hands of rich givers.".

Former Sen. Warren Rudman, a Republican from New Hampshire who campaigned for reform, wrote after the Citizens United ruling, which he called rash and immoderate: "Supreme Court opinion notwithstanding, corporations are not defined as people under the Constitution, and free speech can hardly be called free when only the rich are heard.".

Another Republican Presidential nominee, John McCain, whose name graced the bipartisan McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform act of 2002, said after it was struck down by the Citizens United ruling: "What the Supreme Court did is a combination of arrogance, naivet and stupidity the likes of which I have never seen.".

Still, McCain joined all of the other Republicans in the Senate Thursday to obstruct a constitutional amendment to fix that problem..

Sen. Tom Udall, the New Mexico Democrat who proposed the amendment, said he'll continue to press for its passage..He must because that limitless campaign cash is ruining the American democracy..Voters know that money tends to corrupt, and infinite money corrupts infinitely.

Today Is Constitution Day. Here's What That Means:

On September 17, 1787, the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed and adopted the Constitution at Philadelphia's Independence Hall..What exactly does that mean?.

What did the Constitution aim to do?.

As drafted, the Constitution's purpose was to create a government that had enough power to act on a national level, but without so much power that individuals' fundamental rights would be at risk..

The Constitution accomplished this, in part, by separating the government's power into three branches, and then including checks and balances on each of those separate powers to make sure no single branch would gain supremacy..Each branch's powers are spelled out in the Constitution, and the powers not assigned to them are reserved for the states..

This was all no coincidence -- it was based largely on the experience that the Constitutional delegates had previously had with the King of England and his powerful Parliament..

So how did it all happen?.

Once they'd decided on the details and language in the Constitution, the Convention got down to actually putting it on paper. The Constitution was written out by Gouverneur Morris, a delegate from Pennsylvania..This task, as it turned out, gave him control over the actual punctuation of certain clauses in the Constitution..The famous "We the People" preamble is also credited to Morris..

Finally, on September 17, 1787, 39 of the 55 delegates signed the new document -- with many of those who refused to sign objecting to its lack of a bill of rights (which would come along a few years later in the form of the first 10 amendments of the Constitution), and at least one delegate refused to sign because the document, as written, codified and protected slavery and the slave trade..

How did we land on a final version?.

Much of the debate between the delegates was conducted in secret to make sure that those involved spoke their minds..Two plans vied for the form the new legislature would take: the Virginia Plan, supported by most of the larger states, which broke out representation based on each state's population; and the New Jersey Plan, generally preferred by smaller states, which gave each state an equal vote in Congress, regardless of population..

Ultimately, the delegates settled on "the Great Compromise," in which it was decided that the House of Representatives would represent the people according to a given state's population, and the Senate would be apportioned equally to represent the states..The plan also called for an independent judiciary, and decided that the President would be elected by the Electoral College..

Did the people putting it together consider how we'd go about changing it?.

They did indeed -- here's the process the founders established for amending the Constitution (a process made intentionally difficult and involved to prevent arbitrary, one-off changes):

An amendment can be proposed by a two-thirds vote of both Houses of Congress -- or, if two-thirds of the states request an amendment at a convention called for that explicit purpose..Then, the amendment has to be ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures, or three-fourths of the conventions called in each state for ratification..The Constitution says specifically that no amendment can deny a state equal representation in the Senate without that state's consent..Since its ratification, the Constitution has been amended 27 times -- to preserve freedoms of religion, press, and speech; to protect the right to a fair and speedy trial by jury; to abolish slavery; to grant women the right to vote; and more..
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed." — Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration of Independence..

Since the Second Continental Congress declared America's independence from Great Britain on July 4, 1776, the United States government has sought to realize the fundamental principle on which our nation was founded: that all people have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness..

This principle was formalized in 1788 with the ratification of the Constitution..That document — still the supreme law of the United States — became the foundation of a federal government that allowed the several states to act together as one, while protecting the sovereignty of each individual state..

To ensure that no person or group would amass too much power, the founders established a government in which the powers to create, implement, and adjudicate laws were separated..Each branch of government is balanced by powers in the other two coequal branches: The President can veto the laws of the Congress; the Congress confirms or rejects the President's appointments and can remove the President from office in exceptional circumstances; and the justices of the Supreme Court, who can overturn unconstitutional laws, are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate..

In creating this balance, the framers of the Constitution hoped to form what they called "a more perfect union" — a government that would not only serve the people but would also be a long-lived exemplar to other nations around the world..

Nick Jonas is currently on a gay press tour to promote either his new solo album or his chiseled six pack abs — we’re not quite sure, since he’s been teasing a lot of both..

On Sunday, this man whipped out his famously irresistible stomach for the crowd at NYC’s Up & Down Sundays, a gay twink club night that was also coincidentally holding a “hot body contest” that boasted a $100 prize the same night..

Nick unfortunately did not win the $100 prize, but he did leave the Daily Mail with some super awkward photos of his encounter with two underwear-clad go-go boys two nights later at BPM..

And, of course, Nick’s scheduled tweet about his love for gay fans:

There’s a lot of conflicting — and downright confusing — information about HIV these days, and yet the ways to prevent it are deceptively simple, and increasingly so..Then there’s the scary, staggering fact: 50,000 new HIV infections every year in the U.S. alone..

What’s a boy to do?.

Today, there are new weapons in our arsenal to halt new transmissions, whether you are negative, positive, or don’t even know (quick tip: find out)..So let’s get back to some basics — while exploring new strategies that have a real chance of eradicating HIV..You’re welcome to tape this list to your bathroom mirror, guys..

Or to your bedroom ceiling..

But the most important step of all might simply be the most human: Take care of yourself and your sex partners, no matter how many or few of them you may have..

First, the vocabulary lesson..

Let’s not forget that countless gay men are coming out every day, and for them, the HIV landscape is completely new territory..And even for those vets of gay life, there’s plenty of new developments to track..So let’s start by defining terms..

PrEP:

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is the most recent and most debated development..It is a pill (Truvada) that has been used for years as a HIV medication, but is also proven to prevent HIV infection when taken regularly by HIV negative people..

PEP:

Post-Exposure Prophylaxis has been around for years (health care workers taking HIV medications after getting a needle stick by an HIV patient, for instance), but has been terribly under-used by gay men under other circumstances, like when the condom breaks, have been on a bareback binge, or they otherwise are exposed to HIV..Most gay men simply don’t know about the option (it must begin with 72 hours of exposure), and many emergency rooms are not well informed about PEP..

Undetectable Viral Load:

This means that a person with HIV is on successful treatment and the virus is not detectable through a “viral load” test (these tests have become extremely sensitive to locating active virus)..Being undetectable is not the same as HIV negative..It means their viral activity is so low it cannot be measured by the most modern means, and is unlikely to be transmitted during sex..

So now that we’re on the same page of this HIV prevention guide, here are five ways to prevent getting or transmitting HIV..

1. Use a condom every time:

Talk about old school, right?.Except the tricky part of this advice is “every time.”.Using condoms inconsistently is a risky endeavor..Though HIV is actually difficult to transmit, sooner or later the odds might catch up with you..So if condoms are your mode of protection, stay vigilant..And keep plenty stocked in the nightstand, along with latex friendly water-based lube..

2. Know who you’re fucking:

This might be the hardest advice for the sexually adventurous single man..Sex with strangers definitely has its allure to some of us..But until you know him well — and we’re talking more than his first name and favorite underwear brand — the best policy is to assume he’s poz and act accordingly..Condoms, PrEP, or putting off unprotected anal sex can all make you breathe a little easier..

Speaking of strangers, remember that crystal meth abuse isn’t just bad for your health..It’s also a major contributor to HIV infection..If your hookup is using recreational drugs, chances are his commitment to a healthy lifestyle — or his adherence to HIV medications — is much lower than normal..

3. Face the facts: PrEP works:

The verdict is in, men..Truvada as Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is an effective way to prevent becoming infected, with efficacy ranging from 70 percent to 100 percent in various studies when the drug regimen is adhered to carefully, although one recent study found perfect efficacy when taken only four times per week..Yes, there are sometimes side effects and it should only be taken under a doctor’s guidance (which offers further benefits to HIV negative men who might not otherwise be getting regular medical care)..The debate over whether or not it works is over, but the choice is yours..

New versions of PrEP are also on the way, including other medications which might suit your body better, and an injectable version given every three months is under development..

It’s hardly worth mentioning that a large organization, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), continues its confounding battle call questioning PrEP..AHF stands virtually alone in this opinion, dismissing the support for PrEP from most every AIDS agency, the CDC, and even the World Health Organization..You may have seen the organization’s new anti-PrEP ad campaign in which it references worst study outcomes, which were largely due to poor adherence by early study participants who weren’t even sure the drug would work..But AHF does have a point: medications only work when you take them, and adherence to regimen’s is often a problem both for poz guys on meds and neg guys on Truvada..

4. If you dig him, get tested together:

So the two of you have been getting naked on a regular basis and are wondering what the next step might be..Here is the answer: get tested together..As in, right now..Hear the results of your tests together (if he is unwilling or says he just got tested, you’ve got a problem, sweetheart, no matter how adorable he is)..And then respect your new relationship by supporting each other no matter the outcome..He won’t get tested with you if he fears you will abandon him based on the results..

Budding love (or lust) is a wonderful thing, but hear this loud and clear: the biggest threat to seroconversion is from a primary partner (a boyfriend or regular fuck buddy)..There’s plenty of reasons..People think they’re negative when they are not, or they are positive and terrified of rejection, living in denial, or just plain lying..For all the talk about gay marriage (and its inference that gays are dying to become monogamous PTA members), nothing protects us better than getting the facts about your partner and staying honest about the parameters of your sex lives..

5. Stay on your meds:

Another new reality is that those who are undetectable for at least six months (which suggests they are taking their medications regularly) are unlikely to transmit the virus to their negative partners..This development is nothing short of miraculous, and will hopefully help stem the bigoted notion that guys with HIV are dangerous vectors of disease..You can take this fact at face value, or use condoms as an added measure of protection..

Our sexuality as gay men is a gift and, well, a total blast..We have the potential for more and better sex than anyone on earth..But it’s also our responsibility to help wipe out this virus so the future gay generations can be spared the devastation of older generations of gay men..

The good news is that whether you are on PrEP or taking HIV meds, these amazing new tools, when used strategically in combination, have the potential to significantly lower new infections among gay men and eventually eliminate it altogether..When infections decline, it creates a kind of virtuous cycle where fewer infections mean even fewer infections..

But like any new medical breakthrough, it still depends on human beings being well informed and making good decisions about their health.. Have at it, boys..

Jackson posted a photo taken just after the ceremony on his Instagram account with the message “M A R R I E D. Life is beautiful.”.

Entertainer Cheyenne Jackson, 39, has married Jason Landau, his boyfriend of more than a year and who some media outlets are identifying as an entrepreneur (although what kind of entrepreneur is unclear), at an estate in Encino, California Saturday night..The couple exchanged rings and vows in front of a group of friends that included Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jane Lynch and Alicia Silverstone..The two men have been engaged since February..It’s been a controversial relationship..Last summer, Jackson divorced his first husband Monte Lapka after being married for two years and after a total of 13 years together and quickly took up with Landau, who according to a source he met at a 12-step meeting..

“This means a new beginning for us,”Jackson told People magazine..“It was love at first sight and this is just the culmination of that.”.

The Daily Mail reports that Jackson insisted on a woodsy-themed wedding to celebrate his Idaho upbringing..

“There were branches of trees hovering over the tennis court we’re on with over 100 mini chandeliers draping the entire party,” Landau shared..“It was gorgeous.”.Curiously, many of the guests wore ball caps emblazoned with “PYT” at the reception..

An army dad was turned away from his daughter's high school in Rochester, Michigan, because he was wearing his military uniform..

Lieutenant colonel Sherwood Baker, a service member for 24 years, was asked to leave Rochester Adams High School by security staff, according to Fox 2 News Detroit..Baker was at the school to keep an appointment with his daughter's counselor..His daughter was a new student and he was visiting the counselor to help her with the transition..

Baker's wife Rachel Ferhadson told Fox that the security guard stopped him and said, "Sorry, you're not allowed in the school," and added that "men and women in uniform weren't allowed because it may offend another student.".

District superintendent Robert Shaner, who is a veteran himself, sent a letter of apology to Fox 2:

The district has apologized for any perception that individuals in uniform are not welcome in the school..The district does not have a policy excluding individuals in uniform and will be working with administration and the firm that handles our security to make sure district policies are understood and communicated accurately..

Good evening,

I just addressed the nation about what the United States will do with our friends and allies to degrade and destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL.

Let’s be clear: While this group may call itself the "Islamic State," it is not "Islamic." No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim. Nor is it a "state." It is not recognized by any government, nor by the people it subjugates.

This is nothing but a terrorist organization with no vision or goal other than to slaughter all who stand in its way. While we have not yet detected specific plotting against our homeland, these terrorists have threatened America and our allies. And the United States will meet this threat with strength and resolve.

Already, our military has conducted more than 150 successful airstrikes over the past month against ISIL targets in Iraq -- strikes that have protected American personnel and facilities, killed hundreds of ISIL fighters, and helped save the lives of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.

Going forward, our objective is clear: We will degrade, and ultimately destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counterterrorism strategy.

Here is what that strategy looks like.

First, we will conduct a systematic campaign of airstrikes against these terrorists. Working alongside the Iraqi government, we'll expand our efforts beyond protecting our own people to hit ISIL targets as Iraqi forces go on offense. And we will continue to hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, whether in Iraq or Syria. They will learn what leaders of other terrorist organizations have already learned: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.

Second, we will increase our support to the forces fighting these terrorists on the ground. We will send an additional 475 service members to Iraq to support Iraqi and Kurdish security forces. These American forces will not have a combat mission. But they are needed to support Iraqi and Kurdish forces with training, intelligence, and equipment -- and tonight, I again called on Congress to give our military the additional authorities and resources it needs to train and equip the Syrian opposition fighters.

Third, working with our partners, we will continue to draw on our substantial counterterrorism capabilities to prevent ISIL attacks. Working with our partners, we will redouble our efforts to cut off its funding, counter its warped ideology, improve our intelligence, strengthen our defenses, and stem the flow of foreign fighters into and out of the Middle East.

And fourth, we will continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the innocent civilians displaced by this terrorism organization. This includes Sunni and Shia Muslims who have borne the brunt of this terror, as well as tens of thousands of Christians and other religious minorities.

I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL. But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the President and Congress work together. So I welcome congressional action to support this effort in order to show the world that Americans are united in confronting this danger.

This mission will not be like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil. This effort will be a steady and relentless approach to take out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting our partners on the front lines.

This is American leadership at its best: We stand with people who fight for their own freedom. And we rally other nations on behalf of our common security and common humanity.

When American forces helped prevent the massacre of civilians trapped on Mt. Sinjar, here is what one of them said:

"We owe our American friends our lives. Our children will always remember that there was someone who felt our struggle and made a long journey to protect innocent people.”

That is what the United States of America does. That is the difference we make in the world. And moving forward, our own safety and security depends upon our willingness to do what it takes to defend this nation, and uphold the values that we stand for.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama

People say "I love you" so often and too soon..It's meaning has become watered down for both the one speaking and the one hearing them...When I tell someone "I love you," it will never be said casually or without great consideration and thought..When I say those words, you will know I have given my heart to you..

We have had an unusual increase in Tribe users' reporting a number of child exploitative images. We take this very seriously and have dedicated resources to responding to the reports and cooperating with law enforcement.

Tribe's Code of Conduct specifically prohibits the posting of any image or text which associates children with sexuality in any way and the vast majority of Tribe's users conduct themselves in keeping with our CoC. We have, consistent with our CoC, promptly reported illegal images to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and are currently supporting law enforcement in the active prosecution of criminal violations.

This law enforcement process is ongoing, and while we expect the guilty parties to be brought to justice quickly, there is necessarily some delay while evidence is gathered. We appreciate the support of the Tribe community in bringing violations to our attention and want to assure the tribe community that we are working with multiple law enforcement agencies to expediently respond to all reports and to remove the violators from our community.
