Ally? Really?!?!

While debates rarely impact the outcome, here comes Gov Christi on Meet the Press to announce that post debate on domestic affairs, the conversation will change next day and Mitt will be higher in all polls. That is just hyperbole of the lamest kind. He even suggested the shear stupidity of the American People for just now starting to focus. Like any good liberal would miss the Democratic Convention or any GOP persons would miss theirs. It should be fun television I suspect, but Obama already has my vote in the mail in Iowa. He will win here.

Good LAW

As a gay man living in Iowa, and over the age of 40, this is good news. I take care of a variety of people and kids just do NOT need any further stigma attached to their already tumultuous adolescent years. My Father, may he rest in peace, was supportive of my stress when I came out to him. After assuring me that he still loved me, he did offer me some 1-800 number to call for a cure to my gayness. In 1987, at age 23, I never made the call ( mostly just because instincts told me that it would be ridiculous). I served in the Navy and was out to everyone--my language skills in Arabic likely helped not get thrown out. I did my job and demanded the same respect I gave to others. I love being gay and all the advantages it accords on lifestyle. One can make a tremendous difference in lives through foundations, monetarily help with youth who often have little or no support once they come out. Friendships are true and long-lasting as well in the gay world owing to the safety in numbers idea.
