Sotomayor & reverse racism

What in the world in reverse racism? Technically the word racism should do it. It doesn't matter what race is being derogatory about another, it's just racism. I don't know why we still have the idea that the caucasian race is the best. If a black person was racist against me, it's no less important than the other way around.

AND!! From what I've seen about Sotomayor, she's got a funny sense of humor. If you read the whole quote where she states a Latina woman would come to a better decision than a man, it is in no way racist.

Although, Gordon Liddy was quoted as saying....
"Let’s hope that the key conferences aren’t when she’s menstruating or something, or just before she’s going to menstruate. That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then"

I hope I don't offend anyone with my horrible language right here... But what a douchebag! I mean, really.... I haven't heard a menstruating joke since I was in junior high school.

Notre Dame

I just listened to John King interview a graduate that is Boycotting Commencement because of Barack Obama. But, her reasons aren't (IMO) accurate.

She said that it's not right for Barack Obama to use commencement as a time to talk about abortion rights. She would be open to a town hall style meeting where there could be a back and forth discussion rather than just having to listen to him.

Barack Obama was asked to deliver a commencement speech. Peroid. End of story. EVERYONE else has made this about abortion... so much so that he'll actually likely have to address it in his COMMENCEMENT speech.

It's so crazy. I absolutely agree with their right to be pro-life. That's not even a question. It is after all a Catholic School. But, how do they justify asking Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush when they are pro death penalty? Just seems hypocritical to me.

The Big Tent

In listening to the GOP blitz... one thing really sticks out. People can belong to the "Big Tent" party so long as they ALWAYS support the GOP. Now that Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama, he can no longer belong to the republican party per Dick Cheney. Rush Limbaugh maintains that John McCain should switch to the Democratic Party. McCain is trying to make nice with Rush by saying that the GOP should not moderate at all.... even though he is by all accounts a moderate Republican.

How is this going to entice people into joining the party, if once they waiver against something, they're going to get kicked out?

You can risk your life, but you can't.....

I had to sleep on this before posting it because it made me so angry.
But I have to say that sleeping on it didn't really help.

If any of you watch Rachel Maddow, you know about this. She interviewed a National Guard Platoon Leader named Dan Choi on her show in March. He said "I am gay" on TV and said he could be fired for it because of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

Well sure enough, today he got a letter saying that is going to be discharged because he broke that policy.

Who in the world could have possibly thought that was a good idea? We ask these people to possibly GIVE UP THEIR LIVES to protect us and they can't admit to who they REALLY are? This is shameful and it needs to be remedied RIGHT NOW. I am so truly pissed about this. We owe this to them... They are expected to be honest, truthful, loyal while in the armed services but how can they be, when they can't even admit to who they are.

Let's lose valuable servicemen and women for this??????

I love mustard.

I must be elitist now. In case you haven't seen, Hannity thinks that Obama is elitist for using Mustard on his hamburger.

This is honestly what we are talking about in America?

... and I lost a follower somewhere.

Showing their true colors

Boy, I've never noticed before how clearly you can tell which Senators/Congressman(women) collect funds, etc from which people.

Just saw a note that some Dems are opposing Obama's tax haven plan. And how the Repubs fight against healthcare reform. You can tell where their toasts are buttered.

It's a damn shame, they don't look out for what's best for all of the people in their country... they just seem to be looking out for their own wallets and political asses.

A plea to the good people of the 6th district of Minnesota.

Please for the love of all that's good and common sense.

Elect anybody BUT Michele Bachmann in 2010.
You honestly don't want to be known as the people that elected this crackpot. She gets more and more bizarre each day.
