A Happy Holiday For All


I hope the coming days bring you peace, tolerance and joy.

Let's hope that we continue the progress in 2011.

Thank you, President Obama for providing health care and making it legal and available for all.   Thank you ending the anti-gay policies of the U.S. military.

We love you.

Gays in the military will bring positive reform and eventually peace

In a world that has grown more progressive and free-thinking, the U.S. military is like a dinosaur trapped in long ago place that the world has moved beyond.  President Obama is doing what he can to modernize the U.S. and to make it progressive but there is still much to be done.  Violence is never the answer. War is never the answer. Progressive change will make the military realize this.

The U.S. military is overwhelmingly "straight", poor and few educated members.  There are also many Christians in the U.S. military which makes it out of step with mainstream and progressive views.  This must change.

By allowing gays in the military we uplift the people in the military and hopefully educate them and free their minds.  Instead of a military that invades other lands, the U.S. can have a force for peace.

TRON: No gay relationships here either?

Here we go again


After the uproar created by Avatar when they promoted interspecies heterosexuality you would think that maybe Hollywood would get the message.

Evidently not.

So Quorra has to be a female and attracted to the male. Same old, same old.

Russia says Julian Assange should get the Nobel peace prize!



And we agree!

From the UK Guardian:
Russia has suggested that Julian Assange should be awarded the Nobel peace prize, in an unexpected show of support from Moscow for the jailed WikiLeaks founder.
In what appears to be a calculated dig at the US, the Kremlin urged non-governmental organisations to think seriously about "nominating Assange as a Nobel Prize laureate".
"Public and non-governmental organisations should think of how to help him," the source from inside president Dmitry Medvedev's office told Russian news agencies. Speaking in Brussels, where Medvedev was attending a Russia-EU summit yesterday , the source went on: "Maybe, nominate him as a Nobel Prize laureate."
Russia's reflexively suspicious leadership appears to have come round to WikiLeaks, having decided that the ongoing torrent of disclosures are ultimately far more damaging and disastrous to America's long-term geopolitical interests than they are to Russia's.

Bradley Manning IS a hero. Thank you, Berkeley!

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- The Berkeley City Council will consider a resolution that would declare the Army private suspected of leaking classified information to WikiLeaks a hero and call for his release.

The council plans a vote Tuesday on the resolution in support of Pfc. Bradley Manning, who is being held in a military brig in Virginia. A city commission already has approved it.

Bob Meola, who authored the resolution, tells the San Francisco Chronicle that Manning is a patriot who deserves a medal.

Federal officials have criticized the leaks, saying they could endanger lives.

Leaders of the famously left-leaning city have weighed in on controversial national issues before, including votes to advise that a Marine recruitment office wasn't welcome downtown and to force local compliance with United Nations human rights treaties.
