2013 can be an even better year than 2012

People will celebrate President Obama again in 2013

2012 was a very good year.   We saw:

The Affordable Health Act validated by the Supreme Court.

Immigration reform allowing people to have rights in the U.S.

Gay Marriage became the law in several states.  More to come in 2013.

And President Obama won reelection!

In 2013 we can look forward to the rich paying their fair share in taxes, bans on guns and new efforts to combat Climate Change.

Time to make American a GUN FREE ZONE

Time to stop the violence.

Time Person of the Year: President Obama

Definitely deserving, considering how many foes and villains he took down this year.

Is there anyone else who would've been a better candidate?

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

What would Lara do about the 'Fiscal Cliff'? My solution.

First, the most import thing making sure that the rich start paying their fair share in taxes.   Secondly, we have to make sure there is no reduction in tax dollars going towards education, health care, Green Energy, science and mass transit projects such as high speed rail.

We can do this with the following:

Anyone making over $50,000 a year should pay 20% in taxes.

Anyone making over $100,000 a year should pay 25% in taxes.

Anyone making over $150,000 a year should pay 30% in taxes.

Anyone making over $200,000 a year should pay 35% in taxes.

Anyone making over $250,000 a year should pay 40% in taxes.

Anyone making over $500,000 a year should pay 45% in taxes.

Anyone making over $1,000,000 a year should pay 50% in taxes.

Any corporation that has profits that exceed a million dollars a year should pay 50% in taxes and 25% of those profits should automatically be distributed to employees for their health care needs.

We also need reductions in spending, especially with regard to military spending.    Right now, an obscene $700 billion a year is given to the military every year.    Let's get that down to $100 billion or less.   We don't need to be spending money there.

President Obama beats Republicans on Election Day

and he'll beat them again in the Fiscal Cliff battle!

President Obama is too smart for Republicans plus he has the support of the people.   Voters overwhelmingly cast their vote for President Obama and Democrats.  

We want higher taxes for the rich.   Time for them to pay their fair share and contribute to society.

Marco Rubio Refuses To State How Old The Earth Is!

His response: "I'm not a scientist".

Clearly, Rubio is another GOPBagger knuckledragging creationist moronic presidential candidate in the making! old-earth-is

GQ: How old do you think the Earth is?

Marco Rubio: "I'm not a scientist, man. I can tell you what recorded history says, I can tell you what the Bible says, but I think that's a dispute amongst theologians and I think it has nothing to do with the gross domestic product or economic growth of the United States. I think the age of the universe has zero to do with how our economy is going to grow. I'm not a scientist. I don't think I'm qualified to answer a question like that. At the end of the day, I think there are multiple theories out there on how the universe was created and I think this is a country where people should have the opportunity to teach them all. I think parents should be able to teach their kids what their faith says, what science says. Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. It's one of the great mysteries."

Rubio is afraid of offending the far right. It has been proven pretty clearly that it most certainly not is 7 days...

What can we expect during President Obama's second term?

Congratulations America and President Obama! We are 24 hours away from President Obama's 2012 victory over Mitt Romney.

So what can we expect from President Obama's second term?

Given the recent latest example of the growing danger of Climate Change from Hurricane Sandy I think President Obama will double his efforts to transition America to Green Energy. We simply cannot afford any delay in switching from coal, oil and gas. The Earth depends on it.

We'll see the rich pay their fair share in taxes. The Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich will expire in January. President Obama should also continue to seek further tax increases to promote economic fairness and equality.

No more wars. The U.S. military will totally be out of Afghanistan and Iraq by 2014.

Health care for all. The Affordable Health Care Act will be in full effect.

Marriage Equality. I would like to see President Obama sign into law a bill that preserves and protects marriage equality rights for everyone.

Even more jobs and economic growth.   President Obama has done an impressive job in stopping a global economic depression and ending the Bush Recession.    The investments President Obama has made in Green Energy and Education will be mean even more jobs for everyone during the next four years.

The end of the Republican party.   With Mitt Romney's defeat in 2012 and Republicans discredited, expect to see the Republican party fracture and by replaced by several smaller parties such as the Green Party and Constitution Party.

Obama: 'We have your back' vs Romney: 'You're on your own'

Which one "creates a more perfect Union" and which serves us better in times of crisis?

Hurricane Sandy is the latest Bush fiasco

Earth in the balance

Hurricane Sandy got its start back in December 9, 2000.

What is the significance of that date?

That was the day when the NeoCons in the Supreme Court took President Al Gore's victory and gave it to George W. Bush.    As a result of that terrible day, we got two wars, over a million people killed, thousands wounded or tortured, illegal wiretaps, tax cuts for the rich, the Bush Recession and a complete rejection of science and the dismissal of the reality of Climate Change.

Because the United States did not start serious investment into Green Energy under the election of President Obama, we are still dealing with the destructive impact of Climate Change.  Hurricane Sandy is a brutal and painful reminder of the grave mistake and disaster that was Bush and Republican policy.

Has President Al Gore been allowed to serve his two terms in office before President Obama, New York city would not be under water now.

Powerful article! Why a Romney win would be bad for America

Why a Romney win would be bad for America

By Steve Kornacki

There’s a strong case against Mitt Romney’s candidacy that has nothing to do with ideology. Which is probably a good thing, because no one really knows where Romney fits on the ideological spectrum, and if he really has any deeply held policy views at all.

My own sense, as I’ve written before, is that Romney’s party label tells us pretty much all we need to know about how he’d govern. He’s the nominee of a party that has adopted a far-right platform, and if he were to win he’d have little choice but to stick to it. Conservatives have long viewed Romney’s ideological credentials with skepticism; under a Romney presidency, they’d be perpetually on-guard for any hint of betrayal. Failure to govern as the conservative he swore he was during the GOP primaries would open a rift in the party and threaten to destroy his presidency.

But part of Romney’s appeal to swing voters is an assumption that he’s faking it – that he said the words he needed to say to win the Republican nomination, but that as president he’d revert to Massachusetts Mitt, the middle-of-the-road pragmatist who shunned culture war politics and wasn’t averse to working with Democrats. I have a hard time seeing this, but for the sake of argument, let’s say it actually is his intent. Even then – and even if you think this would work out OK for the country from a policy standpoint – there’s still a compelling reason to fear a Romney win on Nov. 6.

The basic problem has to do with the behavior of Romney’s party over the past four years – reflexive opposition and obstruction rooted in electoral strategy, not ideology – and the lesson that politicians from both parties would draw if it results in a one-term Obama presidency.

Essentially, Republicans looked around when Obama was sworn in and saw political opportunity. They had lost the White House and faced steep Democratic majorities in the Senate and House. In a way, this made them weak; they had no power to advance their own agenda. But it also gave them strength; they had considerable power to stall Obama’s agenda, and with economic anxiety rampant, it seemed logical to assume voters would blame the ruling party if things didn’t turn around quickly.

The result is that Republicans devoted themselves not to constructively criticizing Democratic proposals, crafting feasible alternatives, and accepting olive branches from the administration but instead to cranking up the hysteria and treating virtually every Obama initiative as a step toward socialism. They matched this with legislative obstruction, tying up scores of nominations, forcing a record number of filibusters, and forcing Democrats to pass their agenda on party-line votes.

The calculation was that Republican cooperation would signal to the public that progress was being made and that Obama was living up to his promise to change Washington. But if they railed against him and his agenda instead, Republicans would create an air of controversy around every Obama proposal and bring his approval rating down that much faster.

Mostly cut out of this equation has been policy. Congressional Republicans bitterly deride the stimulus, even though it was loaded up with tax cuts and infrastructure spending that Republicans had traditionally supported. But where was their viable alternative? Healthcare is even more egregious. Obama spent months cultivating Republican support and adopted a basic framework – an individual mandate that would strengthen private insurers – that originated on the right. Not only did they unanimously oppose it; they’ve still failed to produce their own plan to replace the Affordable Care Act – despite promising to do so for more than two years. And while they did rally around Paul Ryan’s long-term budget blueprint, Republicans have had nothing to say on the country’s immediate jobs crisis, offering only tired rhetoric about high taxes and wasteful government. And, as Jonathan Bernstein points out, they’ve offered nothing substantive on foreign policy, settling instead for fake scandals and symbolism.

If Romney wins in two weeks, Republicans may well find themselves with complete control of Washington again. And they will have achieved it by doing nothing but opposing, attacking and obstructing Obama. As Norm Ornstein and Tom Mann explain in “It’s Even Worse Than It Looks,” this kind of conduct by an opposition party works in parliamentary democracies like Britain. But our system isn’t designed for it. If Republicans win back power with it, though, there’s no reason to think they won’t behave the same way again the next time Democrats claim power. For that matter, it’s possible Democrats will begin to behave the same way.

This last point is worth considering for a moment. There’s a school of thought that Democrats will always be open to entreaties from a Republican president, for the simple reason that they believe in an active and robust government. So, for instance, George W. Bush found Democratic support – sometimes significant Democratic support – during his first term, even though Democrats were still furious over how he’d won the presidency. But if Republicans succeed in making Obama a one-termer, who’s to say how Democrats will react – and if their party base will even allow any cooperation with President Romney? (Again, this is accepting the idea that Romney would even try to reach out.)

Elections shape the behavior of political parties. Recall that Bill Clinton got more cooperation from Republicans as he beat them (first with the 1995 shutdown, then in the 1996 election), to the point that Republicans ultimately went looking for their own Clinton in 2000, keying in on the affable George W. Bush and his compassionate conservatism. The GOP’s post-2008 behavior has not been healthy for our system of government. It’s troubling to think what might happen if it’s rewarded.

What lies can we expect from Paul Ryan tonight at the debate?

Paul Ryan's hero Ayn Rand praised a child murderer as 'heroic'

Yep, the woman who Paul Ryan says he modeled his entire political philosophy on thought it was heroic for a sick bastard to murder and dismember a twelve year old girl.

Monday, October 8, 2012

Every - single - major - point Romney made has been fact-checked as being a LIE

A few interesting kernels of Romney's blatant flat-out lies:

$90 Billion wasted for alternative energy in a year - factchecked as lie. mney/mitt-romney-says-barack-obama-provided-90-billion/

Obama doubling the deficit - factchecked as lie. mney/mitt-romney-says-barack-obama-has-doubled-deficit/

Romney claims up to 20 million will lose health insurance under Obamacare - factchecked as lie. mney/mitt-romney-says-20-million-will-lose-health-insur/

And this isn't even getting to his massive lies regarding not wanting to cut taxes for high-income earners... Or claiming he wasn't for cutting taxes by a total of $5 trillion over 10 years.... Or his lie regarding the additional $2 trillion in defense spending never requested by the defense department.... Claiming that half of alternative energy companies have failed under Obama... Or claiming that Dodd-Frank is a sweet-heart deal to the banking industry and Wall Street.

Basically if you think about it, the entire debate can be broken down to Romney just smirking non-stop and spouting literally any - random - BS that came to mind. Almost akin to someone here on IMDb, retorting totally off-the-cuff unsubstantiated bullshyt to try to sweeten their argument.

And the kicker... People actually went away from this debate (I'll admit I was fooled for a while as well), under the assumption that somehow Romney at least has a mastery of the details (if not the facts).

The guy literally did not say anything factual at all during the debate... that wasn't peppered through and through with lies. And he looked good doing it too. That's the shocking part ... and somewhat scary as well I'll admit

Mitt Romney is an objectively despicable person

Romney's "victory" last night came at the cost of truth and basic human decency. He has no problem pulling numbers out of thin air and expressing completely opposing arguments from one day to the next. I suppose that's what makes him successful as both a businessman and as a politician. I'm sure his completely inexplicable fanbase will come in here calling me a 'sore loser,' but if Romney wins we really all lose.

Why would a smart independent voter vote Romney?

Anyone have any clue?

-The "repeal Obamacare" front has been silent for a reason by the Romney campaign.The Average conservative voter in ultra-Red states just assumes Romney will do it when he gets into office. Independents are not "the average conservative voter"

-All of Romney's plans for the economy, energy and jobs have all been thoroughly rebuked by reputable analysts across the political spectrum.

-Mitt Romney is out of touch with the average American. His wife drives a few Cadillac's, "Afghanistan is just a word", "47%", "Car elevator"

-Mitt Romney chose a weak VP choice, he did not cover his greatest weakness, foreign policy. Contrast that with Obama's pick of Joe Biden, one of the best VP picks ever in terms of covering what was his major weakness. (Now Obama dominates Romney and Ryan on foreign policy experience)

-The campaign has been dirty from the start, the exact opposite polls showed that Americans wanted. He played right into Obama's hand.

Eight years of Bush policies create violence and death in the Middle East

The events of the past week in Libya and Egypt and throughout the Middle East are painful reminders of the damage caused by the Bush Regime in the pre-Obama Era.

Eight years of war, torture, unilateral policies and a disregard for science have created much bitterness in the world.

President Obama has taken the right steps to defuse the situation.   Current events remind us why it so vital that President Obama wins this November.

Romney's shameful attack on President Obama

Without knowing all the facts, without even knowing the extent and nature of what happened in Libya and Cairo (and even now we still don't), Mitt Romney chose to jump on this tragedy and milk it for whatever political advantage he thought he might get, even before we've been told the identities of all of the four who died. The man is truly beneath contempt.

The Republican Convention: The largest gathering of ignorance and hate in human history?

I have watched as much of the Republican Convention as I can bear and it has not been easy.   The lies.   The hate.   The ignorance.   It is truly sad to see all these people gather around in one location and relish in all this.

It is striking what is never discussed or mentioned at the Republican Convention.   No one there has mentioned the most important civil rights issue of our time:  Marriage Equality.   No one there defends it.

No discussion of the greatest danger our world faces today:  Climate Change.

No discussion of gun violence.

What do Republicans want?

They want tax cuts for the rich.  They want to arm America and start new wars.   They want to take away our health care.

Who are these people?

Republicans in Congress are to blame for the economy

A  country called the "United States"  is actually in rather decent health right now and was not when President Obama became president.  You would be rational enough to realize that 8 years of complete neglect takes more than 4 years (2 of which were spent with a congress that was paralyzed by party politics) to fix.

A president can do nothing unless congress acts. A president cannot fix the economy unilaterally. And for the last 2 years congress has had a House of Representatives intent on opposing every suggestion from anyone based not on the actual idea but purely on the letter after their name.

To blame that on Obama is silly and simply not rational.

Simply put, the president is not a king. He cannot act on his own and cannot control congress. The buck has to stop at the top - but when it comes to laws and allowing the president to act on the economy, the top is currently Boehner.

Paul Ryan used Social Security to Pay for College ul-Ryan-collected-Social-Security-benefits-until-he-was-18 
So Paul Ryan's father unfortunately died when he was a teenager (worse than that, Ryan was the one who found the body. Fortunately for him his family had help getting by from Social Security which gave them survivor's benefits. Ryan apparently squirreled away enough of this money to pay his way through college.

 Seems like Ryan is another "do as I say not as I do" Republican who thinks others shouldn't benefit from the same system that he did.

Too funny: Romney thinks picking a running mate will help him win in November

Why hasn't Romney paid taxes in ten years?

WSJ: "Romney doesn't need to talk about America becoming like Europe. He needs to warn us about America becoming like California." LOL

This is one of the most ridiculous items I have seen published in the print edition of Fox News:

"When Americans go to Europe they see everything but the taxes. The taxes are terrible. But that's Europe's business and they'll have to figure it out. Yes what happens there has implications for us but still, they're there and we're here.

What Americans are worried about, take as a warning sign, and are heavily invested in is California—that mythic place where Sutter struck gold, where the movies were invented, where the geniuses of the Internet age planted their flag, built their campuses, changed our world.

We care about California. We read every day of the bankruptcies, the reduced city services, the businesses fleeing. California is going down. How amazing is it that this is happening in the middle of a presidential campaign and our candidates aren't even talking about it?"

California is going down? California is LEADING THE WAY!

California is rich in cultural, ethnic, racial and sexual diversity.   California is building high-speed rail and has invested in Green Energy.   It has put in place enacted environmental standards to slow the threat of Climate Change.    California is rich in free-thinkers and its a state that consistently votes for Democrats to promote sensible change and growth.

Even corporate America realizes this.   That's why California is home to Apple, Facebook, Yahoo, Google, Current TV, Twitter and many others.

People from all over the world go to California.   They are not going to any red state with high levels of pollution, illiteracy and religious extremism.

Can Conservatives get any more desperate?

Gary Johnson: The rational alternative to Mitt Romney

I believe that there are rational people who don't want to vote for Mitt Romney but for various reasons don't want to vote for President Obama. For those people, I suggest that they consider Gary Johnson.

Gary Johnson opposes the Bush policies of the PATRIOT Act which violate people's rights. He supports ending the so-called "war on drugs" and respecting peoples rights.

Gary Johnson should be in the presidential debates to offer a sane alternative to Mitt Romney.

Defend Marriage Equality and Gay Rights On Friday, August 3rd

As everyone knows, the Christian fast food chain, Chick-fil-A, has publicly come out in favor of discrimination against Marriage Equality and Gay Rights.

On Friday, August 3rd, millions of people will gather at Chick-fil-A locations to defend their rights and to protest against Christian bigotry by expressing the opposite of Christianity: Affection and Love.

Chick Fil A is a very bad, very negative organization. It funds organizations that have been caught
falsifying data about gay adoption, Pray Away Gays and that work against Marriage Equality rights.

Chick-fil-a is clustered in the southeast U.S., basically the old deep south where you will find most bigots and intolerant Christian types.    Let's keep it that way.   We don't them in our cities, certainly not here in California.

German renewables output hits another record high - 1/4 of all energy

Germany produced 67.9 billion kilowatt hours of renewable energy in the first half of 2012, a record high and an increase of 19.5 percent from the same period last year, industry figures showed on Thursday. 

Renewables now account for 25 percent of energy production, up from 21 percent last year, the country's energy industry association (BDEW) said in a statement that reinforced Germany's position as a leader in green technology. 

Wind energy was the largest contributor of green power, accounting for 9.2 percent of all energy output, BDEW said. 

Biomass, or material acquired from living organisms, accounted for 5.7 percent and solar technology for 5.3 percent. 

Solar energy saw the biggest increase, up 47 percent from the previous year. Germany is the world's top market for power converted from solar radiation and its installed capacity accounts for more than a third of the global total. 

Germany aims to derive 35 percent of its total energy needs from renewable sources by 2035.

History made as uniformed military march in San Diego Pride!

I'm sorry I missed this but I'm happy it happened!

History made as uniformed military march in San Diego Pride

BY NATASHA BARSOTTI – It was a historical moment that moved an estimated 200,000-strong crowd to whistle, cheer and applaud as several hundred members of the military marched in San Diego's Pride parade July 21 —  the first time that the US Defense Department allowed personnel to wear their uniforms in a gay parade. 

The Los Angeles Times reports that all branches of the military were represented, led off by Marine Sergeant Bris Holland, who wore her dress blue uniform and carried the US flag. Walking behind Holland, who served two tours in Iraq, was her seven-year-old son, Kannon, and her partner, Jax Jacquez.

"It's been a long time coming," Holland told the Times.

Also in uniform was Navy Petty Officer Erica Tello, who was with her partner, Danielle Pinango, and their three-month-old son. "Being able to wear our uniforms says that we really are equal, at last," Tello said.

Many others observed that military service has changed significantly since the repeal of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy that prevented gay people from serving openly.

There was some uncertainty in the leadup to parade day as to whether military personnel would be able to march in uniform. But a deputy assistant secretary of defense gave members the green light.

"Based on our current knowledge of the event and current policies, we hereby are granting approval for service members in uniform to participate in this year's parade."

Gun Violence In Colorado

How many more must die before we can have true gun control in America?    That is the question so many of us are asking now.

The shocking violence in Aurora, Colorado last night is a tragic reminder of one of the great faults in American society: the acceptance of gun ownership. The fact that any one person in America can obtain objects whose sole purpose is kill people makes no sense to us in the rational world.

If America had effective gun control laws no one would have been killed at the movie theater last night. To my dismay there are people are who actually saying that more gun would have prevented this horrific event. Such people who express such views may very well be beyond any hope of rational thought.

To make matters worse, the presence of the radical neo-con Tea Party remains a threat to ordinary people who wish to move forward in peace with the progress being created by President Obama. It was the hate rhetoric of the Tea Party that inspired the Tucson shooting of Gabrielle Giffords in 2011. Such hate still exists and no little reason not to believe that the current campaign against President Obama is a factor in the Colorado shooting. ABC News has reported that James Holmes is a member of the Tea party.

I hope President Obama will take necessary steps to protect himself and others from the very real danger of Tea Party violence.     A good first step would be a ban on all forms of gun and bomb ownership.

I don't think Scott Walker won in Wisconsin

If Scott Walker won it is only because of the Koch Brothers and the money that donated to Walker by corporations and the Republican party.   I live in California and I've been in Seattle this week and I have yet to meet a SINGLE person who supports Walker and his attacks on the rights of workers.

Saturday, June 2, 2012

Everyone needs to vote out Scott Walker

Don't forget to join the people of Wisconsin and send in your vote against Scott Walker. Walker is a threat to the rights of workers everywhere, not just in Wisconsin. It doesn't matter where you live. If you are in Seattle or California or New York you can mail you vote against Walker to:

Wisconsin Government Accountability Board
P.O. Box 7984
Madison, Wisconsin 53707-7984

You can also email your vote to

You can vote for Tom Barrett on June 5 using the same information. If you can, please donate money to Tom Barrett at

Make your voice heard and make sure your vote counts for the rights of workers and free thinking people everywhere.   We need Tom Barrett to help President Obama this November.  Thank you!

Seattle loves President Obama!

I've been in Seattle for the past few days to help get the vote out against Scott Walker.   Wisconsin will be voting out the anti-worker Republican next week but we need to make sure we do everything we can to make sure Republicans get the message:  Don't take away our rights!

Seattle is a wonderful, progressive city.  There are signs of support for President Obama everywhere including this one I spotted in the Pioneer Square neighborhood.

President Obama's Emancipation Proclamation for the gay community

President Obama takes his place among the great leaders of history

Gay Marriage is the Civil Rights issue of our time. Like slavery and racial segration, the hate and intolerance being directed towards gays is a wrong that must be confronted and deafeated.   This is a struggle between those thos support diversity and equality and those who preach Conservative intolerance and hate based on fundamental Christian bigotry.

President Obama has essentially issued his emancipation proclamation for us in the gay and transgender community and for that, he will always have our love and support.

It is time for all of America to wake up and join the rest of us in the 21st century: embrace and support diversity and come out in support of gay marriage.

People voted for President Obama because we need hope and change. America NEEDS to be changed and the time do it is NOW. For the next five years, President Obama will continue to transform America so it can join and be recognized by the progressive and free thinking nations of the world.

Thank you, President Obama. We love you! Gay is natural and being gay is part of our Evolution. A union between two men as you say, is just as equal, if not more so, than the society imposed straight relationship.

Reproductive health care is a right just as marriage and diversity are our rights.   Soon Gay Marriage will be legal and accepted everywhere.  This cannot be denied.

Visit any college campus. There are many young people learning about Gay Studies, having bisexual and gay relationships. Some become transgender as I am. There are more of us than you think. We vote and we love and support President Obama.

Thank you, President Obama. We always knew that you support and defend our rights of diversity and equality. That is why we support you, this is why we love you. You are our leader, you are our president forever. You have a special place in our hearts because of your intelligence and open mind of tolerance and wisdom. Conservatives understimate you and don't undertand they are like the dinosaurs, about to become irrelevant and extinct.

Thank you for making the world a better place, President Obama. Thank you for making America into a good place. Thank you for the recognition of our sexual validity.

Students should be educated and not paying loans

President Obama is focusing on student rights and the issue of student loans.    Because of the economic destruction created by Bush/Cheney many today still cannot find good-paying jobs.   The economy is improving and growing stronger every day thanks to President Obama but students are still suffering from the effects of the Bush Recession.  They need help and they need it now.

Don't let the Republicans increase the interest rates on student loans.  Students should be allowed to focus on their studies and graduates should not be burdened with debt. 

Help President Obama protect education and student rights by clicking here!

Transgender Beauty

I had not known about transgender beauty queen Jenna Talackova until about a few days ago but I'm happy I know about her now. What a beauty!

I wish her luck in the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant!

If we open our minds we can become the beautiful butterfly we are meant to be.

The Road We've Traveled - A beautiful tribute to our great president

Everytime I watch this I become so speechless and I am filled with awe that we have this wonderful, smart and progressive person as our president.   Can anyone watch this and not want a second term for  President Obama?

Bravo to Sandra Fluke for standing up for our sexual rights

Thank you, Sandra for standing up for us!

The latest hero in our struggle against Republican oppression and intolerance is Sandra Fluke.   Sexuality is a basic human right and reproductive health care is also a right that President Obama is defending against attacks from the RepCons.

It is no secret that Republicans have issues and fears about sexuality.   They fear gay marriage.   They fear gay people.  They fear bi-sexuals.  They fear transgender people such as myself.   They fear anyone who is expresses sexuality or who even admits to having sex such as Sandra Fluke. 

Sex is natural and yes, SEX IS FUN!  But Republicans in fear and intolerance oppose sexual expression.  This is why they oppose Evolution and in many cases, Nature itself.

Evolution is reality, yet Republicans deny it.  They cling to false religious doctrine and try to impose it on others.

Climate Change is reality, yet Republicans deny it.   They think raping and destroying the Earth is just fine.

Sexuality is reality, yet Republicans deny it.  They think people whould be condemned to a "straight" marriage and not have sex with anyone unless to breed.

Health Care is a right, yet Republicans deny it.  They think insurance companies should simply make profits.

Sexual reproductive health care is a basic medical need and yet Republicans wish to deny it to people.   Sandra Fluke correctly pointed out that many people cannot afford basic medical care and that government has a role to play to meet the needs of the people.   Republicans have been trying to impose religious doctrine on people, most recently by using Catholic extremists to deny people their health care right.    With brave people such as Sandra Fluke leading the way, they will lose.

U.S. economy continues to soar under President Obama. Most economic and job growth since the Clinton years

President Obama has already created more jobs than Reagan and Bush combined.

President Obama ended the Bush 2 Recession and prevented the world-wide Bush Recession that was being created starting in 2001. We have already seen more job growth and economic growth in the past three years than anytime since the 1990's under President Clinton when he ended the Bush 1 Reccession in 1993. President Obama has already created more jobs and economic growth than Reagan and Bush ever did.

The deficit is lower today than it was during the Bush error and more Americans have access to health care than ever thanks to President Obama.

Republicans today realize that they are wasting everybody's time by pretending they can campaign to win the White House this year. It's not going to happen. People are not going to support Romeny, Gingrich or Santorum. People want to see the economy continue to grow, the deficit to be continue to be reduced and they want to keep their health care rights.

Republicans will have to abandon their plans for tax cuts for the rich and oil coporations.   They will have to abandon their plans for war with Iran and getting rid of health care.

Thank you, President Obama.    We are looking forward to four more years!

Catholics and Christians cannot deny anyone health care. HEALTH CARE IS A RIGHT

Apparently some Catholics are upset that all hospitals and doctors will have to provide basic reproductive medical care.   

Republicans and their cronies at Fox News and hate radio are hoping this will turn voters against President Obama.   But this is likely to have give him a net gain of votes. Most women prefer to control their own reporoductive options and would not be happy with allowing priests to decide what should be covered by insurance and what should not.

If you think there is any number of people in the USA in 2012 who were perviously in favor of Obama but who will now change their mind about him because of this policy then your are beyond deluded.

America is not a Catholic nation.  It is not a Christian nation.  It is becoming a progressive nation.

Get used to it.

Why are Republicans even bothering to campaign for the White House this year?

Who on Earth thinks these clowns can be president?

The world is laughing at the Republicans.   Everyone knows that President Obama will be re-elected.

McCain/Palin '08 was pure comedy for us and Romney and Gingrich are jokes as well.  Bush was probably the biggest source of ridicule from the rest of the world America ever had. Why wouldn't the next crop of Cons be the same?

As Republicans continue to self-destruct, President Obama's re-election victory gets bigger and bigger

Can President Obama really be this lucky?

Everyone knows that President Obama will win a second term this November.   He has earned, he deserves it and America needs it.

Yet despite this, Republicans are still pretending they can nominate someone who can "defeat" President Obama this year.   No moderate or intelligent voter will take a Rush clone seriously during the national elections. President Obama will really defeat Gingrich easily. Or Mitt Romeny. I don't know what on earth the GOP voters are doing.

Thank you President Obama for reducing the military. It is time for PEACE, NOT WAR

One of the key reasons why people voted for President Obama in 2008 was that they wanted peace.  They were tired and angry about Bush's illegal wars of aggression on Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere.   Instead of investing money in education and green energy and health care, Bush wasted billions on guns, bombs, wars and torture. 

President Obama is keeping is promises.   By removing American military occupation forces from Afghanistan and Iraq, we are replacing war with peace.   Instead spending billions on war, we'll be investing in peace.
