Family Research Council clearly lying about scientific evidence and gay parenting

By: Friday March 8, 2013 7:19 am

“The Family Research Council and other so-called “pro-family” groups can’t use facts against the gay community, so they hope to beat us down through the constant repetition of lies.” I’ve said it once and I will say it again. Once the religious right finds a factoid or meme to use against the lgbt community, they [...]

NOM attacking same-sex families with tacky graphic

By: Thursday February 14, 2013 7:43 am

  Number one on the Top Ten Chart of Tackiness is the above graphic by the National Organization for Marriage. It’s pathetic on so many levels. At least allow me to count off three: 1. It attacks same-sex families 2. It blames same-sex families for the single-parent homes and takes President Obama’s words out of [...]

Right tries to historically revise Stonewall Riot

By: Thursday January 24, 2013 8:50 am

Because of President Obama’s inaugural speech, the famous Stonewall Riot of 1969 has officially taken its place as one of the great moments in American history. However, some people have taken it upon themselves to demonize what exactly happened at that bar in 1969 which helped spark the modern day gay rights movement even to [...]

Obama gives gay equality an inauguration shout out. Now what?

By: Tuesday January 22, 2013 8:00 am

President Obama’s inauguration speech is going to make things interesting in the coming days: President Obama made history  . . . when he mentioned both the Stonewall uprising and gay and lesbian people being treated “like anyone else under the law” during his second inauguration speech. “We, the people, declare today that the most evident [...]

Ballot losses create delicious racial schadenfreude mess for religious right

By: Monday November 19, 2012 7:53 am

Some people just can’t handle losing. The recent ballot losses over marriage equality in Maryland, Maine, Washington state, and Minnesota seems to have caused chaos in the circles of religious right groups and spokespeople. Words have been said that can’t be taken back as some religious right spokespeople have begun to voice their true feelings [...]

Three reasons why Republicans were massacred in last week’s election

By: Monday November 12, 2012 9:38 am

Last week, the Republican Party was dealt probably the largest voter smack down in recent history or at least as far as I can remember it. When they lost both the House and Senate in 2006, it was to be expected because of  a combination of overreaching (i.e. Terri Schiavo), presidential incompetence (i.e. Hurricane Katrina),  [...]

Video of Romney supporters jaw-droppingly sad

By: Friday November 2, 2012 7:17 am

This incredible video from the New Left Media focuses on voters who are Romney supporters.  This video isn’t to generalize all of those who will be voting for Romney, but it does give you a reason as to why President Obama has had a hard time getting some Americans to support him. And it gives [...]

Romney exploiting Hurricane Sandy to smear, score points against Obama

By: Tuesday October 30, 2012 6:37 pm

The bizarre juxtaposition of the 2012 election and Hurricane Sandy should give voters a clear view into the minds of the two men who are aspiring to lead America in the next presidential cycle. While President Obama has allowed his campaign to take a back seat to his duties as president, Mitt Romney seems to [...]

Romney taking credit for auto industry bailout he opposed

By: Monday October 29, 2012 9:31 pm

Just unbelievable. It was hard to believe when I first saw it and now I am still in shock over this video of Romney taking credit for the auto bailout. From Daily Kos: Ohio senator and Mitt Romney campaign co-chair Rob Portman earlier today in Avon Lake, Ohio, making the case that it’s Mitt Romney, [...]

Romney gets hammered by Obama camp and media over misleading auto bailout ad

By: Monday October 29, 2012 6:06 pm

What was Mitt Romney thinking when he gave the okay for this ad: To put it nicely, the ad is false. To put it like it should be put, Romney’s ad is a brazen lie. So brazen, in fact, that he is now facing a backlash over it in the media. According to Talking Points [...]
