I'm Mad As Hell and I'm Not Going to Take It Anymore!

I am finding more and more support amongst my friends (and here in InternetsLand) for bringing up our collective rage at the sorry state of affairs in this country for LGBTs. I watched President O'Bama do his dog-and-pony for the assembled (unelected) "gay leadership" at the White House, excuse me, OUR White House, on Monday afternoon (early enough in the week to bury it before Friday). The words were comfy and warm however the real support, backed up by actions, was nonexistent. You can go find the video yourselves. The Pink Pussycats (my new term for wimpy "go-along, get-along" Log Cabinish, kiss-ass bloggers and "gay leaders") have the video on all their sites.

David Mixner in his blog today, July 1st, 2009 , said this:

“For me to be a free man doesn't mean I have to make everyone in America like me. In fact the Constitution protects an unpopular minority from the tyranny of a majority.”

This is what he called it: Gay Apartheid

This is what it is: Gay Apartheid

Politicians can mouth off, Religiosos can mouth off, The Powers-That-Be can mouth off, but the net-net is... gay apartheid. Separate, and mostly unequal.


And here's Keith Olbermann interviewing Dan Savage last night on the subject of DADT.

Wait for the payoff at the end. Keith swears up a blue streak and it's absolutely worth the wait.

Hey Ron ... well said. I didn't realize you were doing a blog.

Check mine out one of these days. I don't post on it as often as I would like to, but from time to time I put something up.

I always forget that Blogger (unlike some others) does not automatically make links live.

Mr. Mike!!!!! HI!!

Yeah, I do this blog thingie every once in awhile, too. I used to be better at doing it daily -- until I ran out of daily drama to talk about.

So now I save it up until I get mad enough (or happy enough) to write something.

I'll put a link in my "Reads" list to your site and be sure to check it out every day.

Well you're in luck. I actually got something up today.

Next time you guys will know not to get all goo-goo gah-gah over a politician. Really, when I read the reactions on gay blogs from back in November (stuff like "Yes we did!!") you look like such dopes in retrospect.

Dear Anonymous,

I guess it's fortunate for me, then, that I don't give a rat's ass what I look like. To anybody. Opinions (mine included) are like assholes. Everybody's got one ... and everybody else's stinks. Including yours.

I stand by my assessment from last fall that an African-American Democrat in the White House, even a crappy one, was, is and will remain ten thousand times better than the best Republican.
