well we tried. it isn't working. i guess we might as well give up now. (concern trolling)

has anyone noticed how that meme pops up around here whenever we get the repubs on the ropes? it goes hand in hand with "we should stop this and take the high road" and "average americans don't care about that, we need to stick to issues."

In Obama We Trust (Advocate's First Presidential Endorsement in Decades)

Never has the substantial progress in equal rights and treatment of LGBT people been more at risk than in this presidential contest. This election presents a choice between starkly opposing futures.

Barack Obama is a leader of undeniable accomplishment, vision, and integrity on LGBT rights. His opponent Mitt Romney betrays equality on numerous issues and aligns himself with a faction of the Republican Party that does not include equality among its declared ideals.

In Pa., Voter ID Law Already Changing The Electoral Landscape

They will do anything to win. This includes disenfranchising poor and minority voters.

Just saw Koch brothers' ad (Americans for Prosperity) attacking ACA as a giant tax increase

It seemed ineffectual and this poll confirms that instinct:


Poll: 56 Percent Want ‘Obamacare’ Opponents To Move On

"According to the latest survey from Kaiser Family Foundation, conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates, 56 percent believe that detractors to the law widely known as “Obamacare” should move on to tackle the nation’s other problems, compared with only 38 percent who believe they should continue their efforts to block the law from being implemented."

The Watch/ how's this for timing? Now with better link

a group of neighbors who form a suburban neighborhood watch group and use it as a front to get away from their families. However, when they accidentally uncover an alien plot that threatens the world, they are forced into action....
...On March 27, 2012, it was reported that 20th Century Fox had the poster and trailer removed from Florida theaters in response to the increasing controversy concerning the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman.
