Thank you Obama, you will make Bush proud I am sure. The last forever war will go on forever it seems. Instead of ending in 2014, we now find out that we will have troops there till at least 2416 and beyond….thanks to an agreement Richard Engel got his hands on yesterday. To quote from the article linked above from MSNBC: While many Americans have been led to believe the war in Afghanistan will soon be over, a draft of [continue reading]
MA allowed gays to marry. Since then, 15 other states have followed their lead. Lets raise a glass to MA shall we? Because gay rights ARE civil rights. They are the civil rights of this generation. Not only are they civil rights, they are human rights. Those who are homophobic now are the same folks that lead the fight against inter-racial marriages. They are bigots and sickos.
This Veterans Day remember, on average, at least 22 Vets commit suicide daily. America doesn’t do enough for our returning Vets and it’s not getting better. That is wrong on every level.

Marc Short runs it for them under the name of Freedom Partners.

And yet, even though anonymous donors have become a commonplace part of national elections, it came as a shock last week when a little-known group with strong ties to the Koch brothers stepped forward and acknowledged [continue reading]
And tell the NRA to fuck the hell off? I am so tired of all this shit being controlled by them and the rightwing nutters I could puke. That that they could recall two senators in Colorado because they voted to control who gets handguns and the size of magizines is so wrong I want to take a bat to Wayne LaPierre’s head. Everyone knows the gun manufacturers control the NRA and if they don’t know, they aren’t paying attention, [continue reading]
