My meanderings about politics, LGBTQI COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.

If this is not the company you want the United States to be listed with its time that we take a firm step into the 21st century and abolish the death penalty. How many deaths innocent men and women can our society have on its bloody hands? DNA evidence has cleared so many who have been sitting innocent on death row. can you imagine the stress of being confined when one is innocent? That nightmare should be enough to make us say no to the death penalty. It’s cheaper to house someone in jail for the rest of their life then to goes through the machination of a death penalty appeal process and incarceration.
Last week the Supreme Court stayed the execution of a Buddhist on death row but said no to one man whose only request was that he not be given lethal injection as he was allergic to the chemicals and would suffer greatly. He asked for the gas chamber or some other means but the Supreme Court said no.
The more I hear him speak the more I like him. I have made itclear on this blog that I find him an appealing candidate. Look he’s got the chops. Served two tours of duty in Afghanistan, a Rhodes scholar which is a difficult thing to do and was one of Bill Clinton’s achievements, and he’s gay and married to a husband. I’m gay makes me proud to have someone who’s actually being talked about running for president. My friend Fred Kargar ran for president in 2016. He did not get as noticed as mayor Pete is right now.
I’ve donated to this campaign but I’ve also donated to comella Harris his campaign. I think that would make a great ticket. Is America ready for a gay president? was America ready for a black one? And yet he was re-elected twice. I don’t think that’s the issue. He’s young but he runs a city that has a 385 million dollar budget and 1000 employees. How many senators have had that experience over the last 8 years? As a matter of fact does the person that’s currently residing in the White House have this kind of experience, no, and it shows.
Republicans should love him, they are the ones who have been packing the courts for the last 40 years with their activist judges. remember how they used to talk about Democratic activist judges and how they no longer say that word anymore because they’re the ones doing it?
I wish Mayor Pete all of the best luck on his runand look forward to seeing him on the debate stage. If you get a chance go to his sight and donate some money. His site is:
If you’re like me and you watch Rachel maddow house broadcast each night you are more than familiar with this case.
It’s a case that’s been completely shrouded in secrecy. Commentators have had to read tea leaves to figure out what’s going on. What we know is that a foreign corporation has been doing its best to undermine the Mueller probe. we don’t know where this foreign corporation is but we can ascertain that it may be from Russia. It’s unheard of in the history of the Supreme Court for there to be a secret hearing before The Supreme Court and salt I’m not surprised. The Supreme Court sided with the special counsel’s office. But don’t let this decision make you feel comfortable regarding the special council’s ability to continue his probe. We still have Supreme Court Justice cavanaugh on the porch and we know how biased he is and we know that he will not recuse himself because he’s one of those people that just just stubborn and stands his ground. Sounds familiar, he’s cutting the same mold as the man in the White House. For now I am so happy to hear that the Supreme Court did the right thing and I hope they will continue to do so in the future
And here we are. Brett Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court. Clarence Thomas is on the Supreme Court. I cannot imagine what it’s like for the women on the Supreme Court. Having to face these monsters on a daily basis. I don’t care about people saying that they have moved on. These are terrible people and history will judge them poorly. I’m worried that history will judge us poorly.
Clarence Thomas has had a continued abuse of his position on Supreme Court. He refuses to recuse himself in matters that his wife has financial dealings in. It’s corruption, let’s not mince words here.
I shudder at the decisions that these two men in the future. Brett Kavanaugh was on the record saying that the courts should never Grant new rights to people. The cord was always the place where we looked for Justice and now it’s gone for the foreseeable future.
When the asshole who is in the White House was running for president he kept saying how much he loves the gays he said it over and over again. It’s why he is gotten the moniker of Liar in Chief.
He doesn’t want people to get any rights other than the ones who voted for him. He doesn’t care about the 60% of the United States did not vote for him. Look what he’s doing to California. He is a disgrace and I wish the network’s would stop covering every morsel that comes out of that man’s hole in his face. I’m sorry I usually I’m not this angry but this is beyond the pale.
The Israeli military was one of the first to allow gays lesbians and transgender to be in their military. Nobody can say that the Israeli military is weaker for it. As a matter of fact the statistics show that militaries that are inclusive have a better moral and longer stays in the military. Our own pentagon is not in favor of this. The Tangerine nightmare in the White House is playing to his base and stirring up anti-gay sentiments in those 40% that voted for him. Shame on him.
I cannot express in words how much I miss the Obamas in the White House.
As a gay American when we got the right to get married it was one of the happiest days I’ve ever had. It’s bittersweet for me, I’ll be 65 in April and my chances of getting married are very low. People ask me why I never had children, in the years that I would have wanted to adopt a child it was illegal for me to do so. It’s amazing how a government can change your life. I don’t regret anything but I’ve got to be honest to say that it would have been nice to have more of a family around me. I live alone in Los Angeles and my closest relative his in France.
bravo to Michelle Obama for being so open in her book. I ordered you to buy it.
I was a fan of Michael avenatti until he screwed up the Supreme Court confirmation process and broth someone who would not at the end of the day truly be a victim of Brett Kavanaugh. I truly believe that he made professor Ford’s testimony have less weight because of the fact that was a false accuser. Whether or not he’s guilty of this is not for me to decide
I’m old enough to remember when the federal government was protecting our environment. Oh wait, that was two years ago. I guess I know I’m not that old after all. it’s so sad to see these headlines come out of our government one after the other. Not taking into consideration the fact that we want a future for our kids and grandkids. We want a planet that is vibrant and alive. But the Tangerine nightmare in the white house once a gold-plated home for himself and he wants to feel his pockets with emollient money.
the Republican party is bankrupt. Did you not realize that they are going to lose any vestige of support from young people because of their practices and policies. Young people don’t forget. I remember the first time I voted for President in 1972 for George McGovern and I have not forgotten the feeling of losing and I don’t want to feel that again. Young people feel the same and they are not crisis actors they are potential and future voters and I hope they come out on November 6th and vote the bums out.
I must be one of those violent Democrats because I did not watch anything to do with Kavanaugh’s Vote or swearing-in. Hand the hypocrisy of having a second swearing-in just baffles me. But then everything that this White House does baffles me.
I rarely ask that you go to the link that I post regarding the stories. I do urge you to go and watch the video for yourself. It’s rather disturbing.
