President Obama once again taking action while Congress abdicates its responsibilities and takes a paycheck

“And this is the real news: Everyone is entitled to it—no matter the size of your workplace, no matter whether you have a full-time or part-time position. As soon as you’ve been an employee for at least six months, this time is yours (and your partner’s) to take. Better yet, the new law ensures that your job will be there when you get back. Until now, only workers who have met certain requirements at companies that employ more than 50 people have been given that protection. Thanks to this bill, that’s one less crisis for new moms and dads to worry about.”

Legalize it, sure, but if we do not address the huge racial disparities at the heart of the matter, the barrier between those who are allowed to open up pot shops and profit 1000% and those who are arrested for using the same drug that their white counterparts freely use, the issue is pretty much moot

a word from tally: facts for everyone who claims to be a liberal progressive

by Tally

GODS F**KING DAMMIT!!!

I am so tired of people supposedly on my side, being as F**KING STUPID as the baggers are.

FACTS FOR EVERYONE WHO CLAIMS THEY’RE A LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE:

– ONLY 6 (SIX) DEMOCRATS VOTED TO FUND THE CLOSING OF GITMO. That means that not only did ALL of the REPUBLICANS in Congress vote against it, but MOST of the DEMOCRATS DID TOO. People who blame President Obama for that are F**KING STUPID.

– THE DEMOCRATS NEVER CONTROLLED CONGRESS. No, not EVER. Stop repeating this lie. You look like an idiot, and you’re not helping. There were NEVER 60 votes – enough for a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. Not even for a microsecond. People who blame President Obama for something that is OUR FAULT (for not sending him a Progressive Army, then staying home in a whiny snit) are F**KING STUPID.

(See The Reid Report – Barack Obama and the myth of the progressive ‘majorities’)
