Tea Party Not About Racism? Think Again...

 This comment was taken from Facebook, and serves as an example of just how out of control the racism and hatred has gotten in our country towards our President:

Sheila Ingram-Schroeder
It's past time for the arrogant president of the USA to be IMPEACHED!!! He continues to do what he wants, when he wants, and it makes no difference if he is breaking the law or not. He is the worst presient this country has ever had! We ...need to get his black A.. out of office and his aunt and uncles blacks a.... out of this country...he can go along with them. Send them back to Africa where they belong, they cerainly do not belong here. the president MAY be legal, which I doubt, but he does not deserve to even be in this country much less the president! If he prefers Oreo, like the black woman said the other day, or a malato...which ever. He is not black or white, but a mixture of both. So call him what he is, not what he isn't. His arrogance is unbelievable, and that he gets away with breaing the law like sure would not happen for any of US born citizens. IMPEACHMENT IS THE ONLY ANSWER TO THIS VERY MUCH UNQUALIFIED PRESIDENT THAT IS IN OFFICE!!! WHY WAIT UNTIL 2012...GET HIM OUT NOW! HE SEEMS TO LOVE CALING OTHER PEOPLE NAMES, KNOCKING THEM DOWN WITH HIS SPITEFUL WORDS, HOW DOES HE LIKE HAVING IT DONE TO HIM??? I'M EMBARASSED TO EVEN CALL HIM THE PRESIDENT OF THIS GREAT NATION THAT HE IS SO TRYING TO DESTROY......... Keeps Catching GOP Lies

Nine Republican ring wraiths presidential candidates debated for two hours in Orlando, Fla., and they served up more exaggerations and falsehoods — about Obama, each other and even Thomas Jefferson.

  • Perry claimed Romney supports Obama’s Race to the Top education initiative. In fact, while Romney has praised some of the program’s goals, he said those kinds of issues ought to be handled at the state level, not federal.
  • Romney falsely accused Obama of saying “nothing about the Palestinians launching rockets into Israel” during a 2009 speech to the United Nations. In fact, Obama said those who suffer include “the Israeli girl in Sderot who closes her eyes in fear that a rocket will take her life in the middle of the night.”
  • Perry falsely claimed Romney had once written that “Romneycare” is “exactly what the American people needed.” Romney never wrote that. On the contrary, he said after he signed the bill that “certain aspects” of the state’s law might work “better in some states than others.”
  • Bachmann quoted Thomas Jefferson in defense of her previous assertion that separation of church and state is a “myth.” But the 1802 letter she cited is the very one in which Jefferson said the First Amendment erects “a wall of separation between Church & State.”
  • Perry said the U.S.-Mexico border needs more “boots on the ground” to stop illegal immigration, and claimed that “the federal government has not engaged in this at all.” In fact, the number of border security agents has more than doubled over the last decade.
  • Cain said the EPA has “gone wild” and will regulate “dust” as of Jan. 1. But there’s no new dust regulation set to go into effect on that day, and EPA says it has no plans for one.
And we found other factual problems as well. Former New Mexico Gov. Johnson claimed the government is borrowing 43 cents of every dollar spent. It’s really 37 cents. Bachmann denied suggesting the HPV vaccine can cause mental retardation or is “potentially dangerous.” And Cain even resurrected the old “death panel” falsehood about the new health care law, claiming he would be “dead under Obamacare” because “bureaucrats” would somehow have delayed diagnosis and treatment of the cancer he fought in 2006.

Double checking facts is not a waste of time, it is a patriotic responsibility. We need less uninformed voters now more than ever since people have started to count on the fact that the general public can be easily fooled.

Wall Street Protesters Maced By Police

You make the call, but to me it looks like the women who got the worst part of the mace were complying with the police by staying on their side of the barrier.

Tufts University Medical School Representative Proclaims Chaz Bono a Dangerous Example to Children

Taken from the Tufts Daily:

...Keith Ablow, an assistant clinical professor at the Tufts School of Medicine, wrote for Fox News stating that children should not be allowed to watch a television show that cast a transgender individual.
Ablow published a Sept. 2 editorial in's "Opinion" section titled "Don't Let Your Kids Watch Chaz Bono On ‘Dancing With the Stars,'" in which he states that parents should not let their children watch the ABC show "Dancing With the Stars," which premiered last night, because Chaz Bono, the transgendered son of Cher and Sonny Bono, appeared on the program.
Ablow's editorial warns that children — particularly those in the stages of puberty of who are questioning their sexualities — might be encouraged by Bono's appearance on "Stars" to change their own gender through gender reassignment surgery.
"It is a toxic and unnecessary byproduct of the tragic celebration of transgender surgery that millions of young people who do watch ‘Dancing with the Stars' will have to ponder this question: Maybe my problems really stem from the fact that I'm a girl inside a boy's body (or a boy inside a girl's body)," Ablow said.

To clarify, this professor of Medicine and representative of the Tufts School of Medicine went on national television and used his position to qualify his opinions that Transgender people like Chaz Bono and a danger to the public, not because of their law abiding actions, but simply by example, and that we should shield children from being exposed to that example rather than educate them properly in diversity.

This is the same argument made against GLBT rights across the country. It is not our actions, which are lawful, but simply our example people fear will harm children. What happened to free will? What happened to freedom of self expression? Has all of America invested so deeply into the fear industry that they can't even question the fears presented them anymore, like our Constitution and justice system demands?

Here is another fine example of why I fight for the full equality of all freedoms of expression and equal rights for all citizens.

Protesting Exodus "International" in New Hampshire 09.17.2011

September 17, 2011 brought us a crisp but sunny morning, and those of us who live in New Hampshire came dressed to greet the cold temperatures. We also came prepared with a message for Exodus "International"; hate won't be sold to us.

Protesters started gathering prior to 8:00 AM even though the conference wasn't starting until 9:00 AM. As I pulled up to our location I started to smile realizing that our numbers already were healthy, and this protest has succeeded. Each person came with a hand made sign that lovingly invited Exodus conference members to remember that God loves them just the way He made them.

We later gathered at the corner of the half empty parking lot and listened to some speakers give their testimony while Exodus members peered at us from a distance. Two representatives came over and made clear that we were welcome to come in and join them, to which we declined. Here are some of the testimonials heard:

Judging by the head count we did as people rode in there could not have been more than forty or so participants, church regulars included, at this "North Atlantic Regional Conference". Wayne Besen explains why:

We also had a little run in with a church volunteer that stopped to tell us that we were on private property, which we knew to be untrue, and was later confirmed by the police captain who stopped by to let us know everything was OK. Here's a video of the exchange with that volunteer, who would not give his name:

Many thanks to all those who came out, pun intended. Peace and love to one and all!

This is What Homophobia Sounds Like

I'll let this guy speak for himself... wow! During the video this man claims he has four years of college biology education, so I expected him to start explaining what he knew. Instead he turns to a website and reads from it, and has trouble with the bigger words.

Thanks to Jeremy Hooper of Good As You for finding this one and sharing it with us. I've rebutted with this:

Now let's see if there is a response, or if he will simply crawl back under the rock from which he climbed out from. Here's a public service announcement that maybe is still taken for real:
