It's amazing to find some good news ever now and then in the most unexpected places.The good news? The comment section of a HuffPo article about how John Yoo has been immunized from prosecution for his part in the torture crimes seems almost unanimously against torture, and find Yoo disgraceful. Note, I didn't press my luck by reading beyond the first page of comments.
Clever title!The cartoon is cool too.
OT: Let's see if it stays up.
BRILLIANT!!!!!Obama is no hero because he has finally evolved on marriage equality.Now all the single-issue voter LGBTs will be more prone to ignoring Obama’s attack on civil liberties, the war, the drug war, the immigrant war, his attack on the environment, his expansion of government secrecy, his attack on protestor rights, his signing the NDAA (indefinite detention of US Citizens without trial), the killing of US citizens without trail, and on and on. I refuse the false dilemma of picking either of the corporately controlled 2party tyrants. I empathize with Romney fears. Yeah, he’s evil. I know. Obama is evil too and he’s just more discrete and savvy about it. Obama & his needless wars = literal war on woman though drone attacksObama & the Democrat war on medical marijuana = war on breast caner fighters and HIV+ peopleObama & the Democrat war on protestors rights = war on LGBTsObama & the Democrat war on immigrants = war on people of all walks of life Obama & the anti-choice Democrat war on women = half-assed health care billObama & 2party system war on the environment = appointing people from Monsanto to the FDA, pipeline, and rearranging nuclear standards after the Japanese nuclear crisis (enjoy your radiation America). Obama & 2party system war on Americans = NDAA and killing of citizens without trial If we can go from a country where woman and racial minorities could not vote then we can elect an alternative party candidate that is pro-equality, pro-civil liberties, and pro-peace. If we went from thinking we’d never elect openly-gay politicians and a black President then we can elect an alternative party candidate. Occupy, woman’s groups, immigrant groups, and labor groups are out marching yet all of their grievances are collectively caused by the 2party system (remember the Democrats sell out on health care?). Just as MLK stood up to LBJ on Vietnam, we still need to stand up to Obama for all the wrongs he’s done. If a single issue is more important than the rights of those killed by Obama’s needless wars, Obama’s attack on LGBTs with HIV who need medical marijuana, the attack on LGBT and other protestor’s rights, the attack on woman though poverty and war, and the attack on ALL Americans with NDAA (oh and the pending attack on the internet) then go ahead and vote for Obama and justify his evils. Otherwise un-occupy the 2party system of poverty and war. Not voting for an alternative party because of the greater of evils fears is equivalent to the nonsense of the fearful people who bitched when Gavin Newsome took on marriage in 2004. Just like the fearful people who bitched when Ted Olson & David Boise took on Prop 8. Just like the liberals who ignored 100% pro-equality Democrats Al Sharpton in 2004 and then Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel in 2008.Being stubborn about leaving the 2party system is like being against equality and being too set in your ways to learn about why people deserve equality. Dr. Jill Stein, Gary Johnson, Rocky Anderson, Roseanne Barr, or Stephen Durham are better than Obama. Being afraid to vote for alternative party is as worthless of fearful gays afraid of brave gays insisting on marriage equality, or woman and racial minorities afraid to fight for ht right to vote. There are always oppressed people ok with the back of the bus for their futile fear-based reasons. Idealism and the rejection of fear gave us the civil rights movement, the right for woman to vote, the LGBT rights movement, and Occupy. Idealism and the rejection of fear was MLK standing up to LGBT on the Vietnam war. Idealism can also emancipate us from the abuser/victim cycle between voters and the corporately-controlled 2party tyranny of war and poverty.
