Ballot initiatives provide a wake up call to the LGBT community about race

I didn’t think this would happen in my lifetime. We did it – we jettisoned the right-wing and its failed policies out into deep space and made history in the process. We did it with a diverse coalition of citizens – people who look like the America of the future,…

My friends, an ass-whupping

It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance,…

Your Morning Fact

Barack Obama has received more votes than any presidential candidate in U.S. history.…

Joe The Speeder

Joey was pulled over for speeding. Joey did 50 in a 35. Joey got a warning because it would look bad for the Toledo Police Department if he got a ticket. If Barack Obama wants to repeatedly talk about me in his victory speech tonight, I’ve always wanted to really…

What Today Means

A question from a reader: You are a snarker par excellence, but we seldom get to hear how you really feel about the (probably) first African American president, how you feel about Obama as a person, about his policies, about the POTUS race this year. No snark, just some cold,…

How Much Do You Love This Mess?

Granted, today will be nerve-racking for everyone, but today’s still my favorite day of the year. There’s something uniquely wholesome about the practice of Election Day, over a hundred million people headed to similar places to do a similar – and meaningful – thing.

She grew up through the Depression, through the vestiges of Jim Crow, through separate but equal, through Martin and…

This Is The Gamechanger

In-depth genealogical research into the mysterious past of Barack Hussein Obama has turned up a BOMBSHELL that will change the nature and scope of this campaign forever. In 1979, Barack Hussein Obama graduated from the elite liberal Punahou High School and needed to go to college. Surely driven by the…

The Oddity Of This Campaign

This week, Barack Obama ran a half hour ad right before Game 5, Part II of the World Series of American Heterosexual Baseball. The going whisper campaign was that Obama pushed back the start of the third of a game to air his presumptuous ad, and that Real Americans would…

Making the obvious visible

There’s a wonderful blog, KansasPrairie.net, where Peg Britton blogs about many topics, but I was drawn to her blogging about Barack Obama’s maternal family (the white relatives). There is a great post that features a photo of his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham and her parents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham. Some…
