And there are parties that would want nothing more than to privatize it completely to further the myth of governmental Ineffectiveness in all fields while privatizing the profit.

Only in America can you be pro-death penalty, pro-war, pro-unmanned drone bombs, pro-nuclear weapons, pro-guns, pro-torture, pro-land mines, and still call yourself ‘pro-life.’

Stewart nails it again #TDS

This right here is what is bringing down the country, not welfare, not food stamps, not civil & voting rights, and not equal rights for LGBT folks. It’s the selling of our future to the highest bidder.
GREED, my friends, is what will bring down this great country of ours. Plain and simple.

Mississippi Governor Signs Anti-LGBT ‘License To Discriminate’ Bill Into Law

bspolitics:

I can’t believe someone actually went through with it. This is absolutely disgusting.

I’m sure this is going to end up in a higher court …

Let’s hear it for state sanctioned religion.

Better vote, kids. There’s a whole lot at stake. Local politics is just as important as, if not more than, the national.

The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family.  That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.

The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.

President Barack Obama has done more to advance LGBTQ rights and marriage equality than all previous U.S. presidents combined.

Period.

And yet so much could have been done.

You expect me to give him kudos for doing almost nothing for LGBTQ rights simply because everyone before him did actually nothing? Yeah, naw.

How. typical.

People just can’t seem to admit that PBO ended DADT, successfully fought against & ended DOMA during a hotly contested election, made assaults against LGBTQ people a federal hate crime, is fighting for ENDA, was and still is a vocal advocate for marriage equality, spoke out against the discrimination of the Boyscouts of America, has tried to put the most number of *openly* lgbtq people into positions of political power…but somehow none of that counts because…? Why exactly?

Hmpf. I wonder

And claiming that the presidents before PBO have “done nothing” is highly disingenuous…because many of them actively fought AGAINST marriage equality and other LGBTQ rights

FWIW, HERE’S what Obama doing “almost nothing” looks like

Here’s the deal: PBO is not a king. There is a House of Representatives, a U.S. Senate and a Supreme Court of the United States who also get some say in the matter —unfortunately even when that means unprecedented obstruction

Just to recap: we now have one of the most partisan Republican congresses in recent American history, and the previous 43 presidents have either dragged their feet or outright fought against lgbtq rights…so no, I do not even remotely agree that we should somehow just go on about how it’s Barack Obama, and Obama alone, who “hasn’t done anything” or it’s only he who could have “done so much more”

"Here’s the deal: PBO is not a king.”

Preach!

Joycelyn Elders was the first African American and second woman appointed as Surgeon General of the United States. She was removed from her position because she was an outspoken advocate for contraception and sex ed and believed that masturbation should be promoted as an alternative to sex.

Petition to elect her queen of everything.

How rediculous is it that, during the height of the AIDS epidemic when people were literally dropping like flies from the disease, Dr Elders was removed from office for reccomending masturbation as a viable form of safe sex?
