    Nothing on this or the manufacturing initiative. Instead, the msm is pushing buttons on the gay rights issue!

    Chip, it is important we have a coordinated money bomb next week!

    The GOP is going all out to divide us…

      I just showed my husband the photos of Obama at Carnegie Mellon and said how important I thought his speech was there, that the President is doing everything possible to spike the economy. And he said, “I didn’t see anything about that on the news.” I didn’t either, and therein lies the problem. It is aggravating to the max. A tragedy, really. Our news media refuses to do their jobs, to fulfill their essential role in a democracy.

        Well….. the US Mediaโ„ข is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the GOP/KochBrosยฎ and they’re doing their best to destroy Obama, which is, apparently, their job now.

        I just wish everyone would realize this, and stop wondering why they never hear about Obama “doing anything…”

        We could also write their advertisers, etc etc etc….. not that they give a shit…..

    The LGBT community needs to chill with their rhetoric, they are turning people off. i am a advocate for their rights, but they are making things harder, people are barely surviving, Their push to make this his number 1 issue is unfair, especially when he is reversing a lot for their benefit. To ,me they are coming off as ungrateful.

We have been fighting for our rights for decades by winning over 1 heart and mind at a time. It makes me so mad and sad because it causes a backlash among good folks like anniebella below.

    • June 24, 2011 at 11:09 am

      I feel the same way Tulips. I am all for everybody being treated right, but the gay community and all their complaining, I’m fed up with them. I’m just fed up with them. I’m fed up with the attacks on this President. This President have done alot for them and to attack him the way they have, it has me at the point were I don’t want to hear a dam thing they have to say. If they think the Republicans will treat them better then go ahead vote for them. And see where gays rights will get. The Republicans are still trying to do away with women’s right to have an abortion.

      • June 24, 2011 at 11:16 am

        So feel free gays, vote for the Republicans, or don’t vote. And get ready to go back in the closet. With all the darn complaining I wish you would go back in the closet. I’m fed up with you.

        • June 24, 2011 at 11:50 am

          I don’t mean to sound hateful, but I’m just tired of it. I’m tired of seeing them popping up on tv every five minutes attacking the President. Not even acknowledging all the good things the President have done, but they say he haven’t done enough. I’m fed up with these people.

Gay leaders are the ones that must address this, slamming Obama for not endorsing gay marriage is short sighted. The tide is turning. Does anyone believe the gay issue would of even been a priority if the repugs were in charge?

    Mrs Obama had this to say when she met with reporters in Africa (especially for Henry Healy if he is reading today):

    KINSHIP

    Obama seemed somewhat less eager to emphasize her own background.

    Does she feel a kinship with Africa?

    “Absolutely, yeah,” she said in the interview, before comparing that to the feeling she had in Moneygall, Ireland, where the president met a distant cousin in May.

    “I absolutely feel that connection here. And I wasn’t surprised by it. I absolutely felt that connection in Moneygall (and was) a little more surprised by it.”

    Thousands of people lined the main street of tiny Moneygall last month, welcoming the Obamas as if they were long lost relatives. The president’s mother, who was white, had Irish ancestry. His father was Kenyan.

    “The love, the warmth, the connection, the excitement. That was family, too. And that’s what I want my kids to understand — that your family is Granny in Kisumu, but it’s also your cousin in Moneygall. That is your history. That is really the American history.”

    Very good article here:

        The msm are fawning over the so called pile of cash that Mitt Romney is raking in b/c he isn’t dipping in to his personal funds unlike 2008 when he put $45 million of his own money and still lost. When the President reveals his war chest, it will blow the repubs out of the water. Since the msm made up this mythical story that President Obama is unfairly raising $1 billion; I pray and hope that he raises more than $1 billion so that he can crush them in ads, tv spots and any other arena and when he wins boy oh boy are the msm gonna be crying for mummy. Bwahahahahahahaha (evil laugh) ๐Ÿ˜†

            I’m on a Mac – not sure how to do it on a PC, but on a Mac you go up to your toolbar at the top of the screen, next to the clock, there should be a small little square thing with some dots and an asterisk * in it. Click on that, and you get a small menu. Click on SHOW CHARACTER VIEWER… once that is open, you can just do a search for HEART – there are a ton of them…. the one above is HEAVY BLACK HEART (I like it because it’s wide and full – OF LOVE) ๐Ÿ˜€

            You can also look it up under By Catagory/Symbols/Miscellaneous Symbols.

            Once you find them, you can insert them, and you can also mark them as FAVORITES – so you can have your own “short list.”

            If you’re on a PC, then I fail…. it’s been too long since I’ve touched one of those, I have no idea anymore…. wingdings? Maybe cut/paste them from WORD?

Some are Congress people, and all have a “bully pulpit”. I always shout back—Don’t you have a voice, what’s preventing you from stepping up and why aren’t you doing this and why aren’t you doing that and why aren’t you doing something constructive instead of spending every possible moment criticizing the Democratic President? etc. etc. It is the most maddening and aggravating thing in the world. They’re all sitting back arm chair quarterbacking and not lifting a finger, waiting for President Obama to wave his magic wand, expecting him to do it all—and by himself.

      This reminds me of a story I once heard someone tell:

      There once was a preacher and he got caught in a flood. So the water is up to his knees and a boat comes by and in it were some of his congregation, they said: “pastor, pastor, get in the boat!” The pastor said: “Don’t worry about me, the lord will look out for me, you go on.” So they leave. Some time later, another boat comes along and stops by the preacher. This time, the water is up past his waist and they say: “pastor, pastor, get on the boat, you’re gonna drown.” The pastor said: “Don’t worry my children, my God loves me and he will save me, please, go along and save yourselves.” So they go. Another boat comes along an hour later and this time, the water is up to the preacher’s neck. The boat stops by the preacher and the people say: “Pastor, pastor, come on. You’re gonna drown! Here take my hand and get in!” The preacher says: “it’s alright my son. God is my savior and he will see me through. Please save yourselves, go.” So they go. 10 minutes later the pastor drowns and he wakes up in heaven. He’s shocked and very angry, so he goes to see God. He says to God: “God, I loved everyone, I lived my life well, I gave to the poor, ministered to the sick. I loved unconditionally, but you didn’t help me when I was drowning!” God cocked his head, glared and said: ” You dumb mofo! What did you think those three boats were for?!”

      Moral of the story: God helps those who help themselves, so does PBO. I wish these dumb Democrats would shit or get off the box. They need to earn the nice salaries they make per year. It’s like they are babies or something! Always waiting for PBO to feed and burp them ๐Ÿ™„

        Great story Lisa. My dad told me this story once, a long time ago when I was all mopey and walking around with an “Oh woe is me” mentality. That phrase has forever stuck with me “God helps those who help themselves.” Truer proverbs have never been said and written. Dems are not helpless and should stop acting like they don’t have a voice or means to get their message across. President Obama is one man and cannot do the job of millions when said millions have eyes, ears, mouths, hands, legs and brains. Dems: Get the fuck up and fight. Get the fuck up and spread your message. Get the fuck up and stop blaming the wrong person. Get the fuck up and beat the republicans at their game. Get the fuck up and stop acting like whiny titty ass babies. Get the fuck up, stop complaining and back words with action. Get the fuck up and grow a spine. And as Lisa so eloquently said “shit or get off the box.” Enough is enough.

    We called them the DKGays, meaning NOT representative of the community as a whole. I think of them in terms of percentages (tiny) and who will they persuade to vote R? Will they themselves? Will more sensible gays? Will the rest of us? Choi and the rest, for ME, do the most damage in that I have to remember to never generalize…hence the DKGays differentiating name. I actually lost friends on DK over this. I would not “stand” with them in denouncing POTUS. I was unceremoniously dumped from their group. I will not crtocize them to a significant degree. If I walked in their shoes, I might be in blinding pain. But I will never support them. In fact I was turned off by them, I had to take time away from their mindset, in order to work myself back to being any kind of activist ally. I work for an AIDS group in CT, but they are fighting for their lives, not against Obama.

    Ugh. Clinton’s advisor on Gay issues was on Lawry tonight have a lovefest orgasm over Andy Cuomo. He was like: ‘oh, he did this at the beginning of his term when his popularity was high (dig at PBO), he got bipartisan support. He didn’t try to have it both ways like the president is. I hope the president will follow his example’. So Lawry said basically: ‘why is this president who has done so much for LGBTQ and is infact undoing what Clinton did, getting so much pressure when Clinton didn’t.’ The Clinton advisor on gay issues said: ‘That was years ago, things are different’. —-what? Gays only discovered in the past 20 years that they want to be treated equally with equal rights under the law including the right to love and marry whomever they so choose? Really, head of Equality Now Guy? Really? Hm. Lawry was like: ‘well, I’d really like to have you back to discuss this.’
    ps- Nothing against Andy, I think what he’s done is awesome and the right thing to do. But now it looks like he’s going to be the new LGBTQ Hero. I’m sure if they could, they’d push him to primary PBO (never gonna happen). You could see how inlove the Equality Now Guy was as he waxed poetic about Andy ๐Ÿ™„

      I was watching also Lisa. These gay rights Clintonites never understand that Clinton signed DADT and DOMA into law and Barack Obama repealed DADT and ordered his DOJ to stop defending DOMA due to the unconstitutionality of Section 3. Clinton was a good President, no doubt about it, but he also put some harmful policies in place even though he thought he was shielding gays from more abuse. President Obama has been the most progressive President in US history on gay rights issues. He has granted them the same federal benefits that heterosexual govt employees recieve. He has directed that all hospitals receiving medicare and medicaid funding cannot bar a gay person from visitng his/her partner in the hospital. He has accomplished all this despite the roadblocks tossed in his path. So that Clinton advisor should shut his yap and thank President Obama for his continued efforts in support of the LGBT community.

      As for him praising Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York in his fight for marriage equality for all New Yorkers LGBT and otherwise, that’s all fine and well. Yes Cuomo is trying to do it through bi-partisan support, but so did the President. A couple of House and Senate Republicans voted to repeal DADT and though it might not have been an overwhelming majority, the overarching point is they did, and DADT got repealed. Besides Cuomo is a Governor of one State and President Obama is President of the United States with 50 states, about 310 million people with differing views and 535 congressmen/women who have to adhere to those views while having their own agendas. So sorry Clinton advisor on gay rights; Cuomo is dealing with small fish while President Obama is dealing with blood thirsty sharks who are never satisfied with anything he’s accomplished.

        Co-signed on everything! This is really ridiculous. I’m totally turned off and sick of being pissed off. I’m all for gay rights and I support the LGBTQ communities that love and support PBO. As for the others, whatever. 8| I don’t have any anger left, I’m beginning to feel indifferent towards them.

        I was about to say that comparing our President to Andrew Cuomo / Mayor Bloomberg / Kirsten Gillibrand on issues like same-sex marriage is unfair. These officials are only governing one state /city- which happens to be one of the “bluest” in the country. There is no political sacrifice on their part for them to come out in favor of same-sex marriage.

        As we saw a couple weeks back, both Gillibrand and Schumer voted in favor of legislation that benefits Wall Street (as opposed to Main Street), and they WERE EXCUSED FOR DOING SO by the PL because it was understood that Wall Street is part of their constituency. Why can’t the President (who presides over ALL of the US) be granted the same understanding by the PL? Epecially given that a significant proporation of moderate Independents voted for him in 2008?

          So true, Hope, so true. I think Lawry tried to draw that to the attention of the Equality Now Guy he was like: “yeah Cuomo got bipartisanship but nothing like that can happen on that scale in Washington.” But the ENG was like: “wah, wa-wa-wah wa.” Whatever ๐Ÿ™„

      GGail, I enjoyed the video too. Let me say thanks to Chipsticks also. I felt the energy from the auidence, and if I was there I would have been showing my support too. It was almost like a campaign speech, the President was getting in the campaign mood. I love the joke about sending Malia and Sasha to a convent. I also love it when he talks of walking in central park and he see an elderly couple walking hand in hand, that would be him and Michelle one day.
