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

The estimated 750,000 voters who do not have state-issued IDs in Pennsylvania surpasses President Obama’s margin of victory in 2008. Many of the voters without ID are in poor and minority communities — typically blocs that vote Democratic. Democrats’ worst fears appeared to be confirmed when the Republican leader of the state House, who helped shepherd the legislation onto the books, recently boasted that it will “allow” Mitt Romney win the Keystone State.

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. The trailer featured Hill, imitating a gun with his hand to pretend to shoot at teenagers, while the poster featured a bullet-ridden, alien-themed neighborhood watch sign.

rare glimpse at alternate reality

Political discussions, debates and arguments are always full of the "well if this had happened ..." Everyone does it. I do it you do it we all do it. Well with CNN's little pooch screwing on the health care decision we got a chance to see how the msm would have played this had it gone the other way.

"This was a body blow to the president." John King. And that is but one example

bien hecho!!!!!! y bien dicho!!!!!!

"It makes no sense to expel talented young people who are for all intents and purposes, Americans," Obama said.

"The notion that in some ways we would treat them as expendable makes no sense. If there is a young person here who has grown up here and wants to contribute to this society, wants to maybe start a business that will create jobs for other folks who are looking for work, that's the right thing to do," he said.

Chicago’s fishy NATO arrests

Perhaps the most interesting tidbit of information fueling the rumor mill is whether the three suspects have been targeted because of a candid video they shot and released the previous week, showing CPD officers searching their car and intimidating them as they entered Chicago. The video, which gleaned considerable online attention, showed one officer recommending that protesters receive “a billy club to the fucking skull.”

The two reportedly stated that they possessed explosives that they intended to detonate, but no such devices were recovered when one of the arrestee’s homes was searched, and the police did not perform a search on the home of the other. Nonetheless, he was arrested for discussing the ingredients for making a pipe bomb (presumably with a police informant, but this remains unclear).

Perlstein’s Rolling Stone article last week is reminder enough that accusing authorities of entrapment is unlikely to work in the defendants’ favor, even if evidence is on their side. “Not a single ‘terrorism’ indictment has been thrown out for entrapment since 9/11,” he noted.
