Following the orders of their Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, both Susan Collins (R-ME) and George Voinovich (R-OH) announced they will join the GOP filibuster led by John McCain (R-AZ) of the Defense Authorization bill, making today’s initial steps to repeal of Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell very precarious.

The fate of almost a million lives could be decided in the next six hours. As a voter, as a millenial, as a migrant, as a Guatemalan, I’m writing to say that I will be watching along with the vast majority of those who will determine the future of the United States of America.
If you already haven’t heard already, Harry Reid is going to offer the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act up as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act. The Senate is scheduled to vote on taking up the Act tomorrow at 2:15 p.m. If you haven’t called you’re Senator yet in the support of the DREAM Act please do so now by calling:
It is imperative that you focus on these Senators. If you’ve called already, call again. If you’ve called again, ask five friends to do the same. If you’ve done all that, here are some more actions you can take.

Amelec is an undocumented LGBTQ activist in Arizona, where local and federal government work hand in hand to target immigrants in the most severe anti-immigrant climate in the country. Last week, Amelec, who has lived in the U.S. since age 2, met with Lady Gaga before her Phoenix concert and told her about how his brother was recently deported even though he would have been eligible for legal status under the DREAM Act now pending in Congress. This is an interview with Amelec.

Not only are every one of her growing legion of pubescent twitter and facebook little monsters taking to typepad and blogspot to deconstruct her latest video, but a growing legion of pundits, pop critics and philosophers are laboring to see both the forest and the trees and connect Gaga to this historical moment.

I didn’t believe Brown would beat Coakley for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat in Massachusetts until two days before the election, when this story popped out of the internet noise.
