Didn't think it could happen, did you?

When Barack Obama sent a brief to the Supreme Court advocating same-sex marriages, it was an earth-shaking moment.  But when George W. Bush sent a letter advocating the same thing... whoa.

Think of that.  Barack Obama and George W. Bush and Joe Biden and Dick Cheney... extraordinarily powerful men with very different viewpoints... come to agreement on same-sex marriage.

It used to be that same-sex marriages were a matter of liberal vs. conservative.  No more.  Now they're a matter of liberal and conservative vs. troglodyte.

Don't let your representative be a troglodyte.  E-mail 'em.

It's time... once more!!!

Earlier this week, I was so excited having a brief meeting at a town hall with my representative John Larson.  I said my bit - but now it's your turn.

I can't tell you adequately how much this will mean to you.  All I can say to you is to give it a try.  If you are prevented by work or distance, send an e-mail.   Even if your representative is initially opposed to what you have to say, one more person - one more voter - may make him or her think twice.

As for me, I'm for freedom.  Freedom to meet.  Freedom to marry.  Freedom to walk the streets unaccosted. Freedom to share a dinner without being kicked out.  Freedom to make love without the police ramming down your door. Freedom to visit your sick partner.  Freedom to say a final farewell.

This is what gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender deserve.

This is what we should demand.

your help is needed...

In case it didn't register with you, I'll say it again:  In Newtown, at Sandy Hook elementary school, twenty seven lives were lost.  Gone. Never, never to return.

Think about that.  Then think about the thousands of lives that are taken around the country.

When morons such as Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and others put their opinions out, one of two things happen:

1)   You e-write your representative and say, "I don't give a flying fart what that idiot thinks, I'm for sensible gun control, and so are my neighbors," ;or...

2)   You say nothing; and your representative assumes that Limbaugh , Beck and the other clowns are forcing their hand, so he reluctantly opposes gun control.

What do you do?

The new Congress is here! Time to bug the hell out of them!

New Congress, old Congress... what's the dif, you say.  Well, watch the news.  John Boehner had the crap scared out of him when Republican lawmakers tore him a new one. Very thankfully, some   tea party crazies were sent home packing.

The fact is this:  Whether you wish to be married, whether you wish to keep the money you earned that your heterosexual neighor  earned, whether you wish to walk home unaccosted... if you don't say anything, IT'S YOUR FAULT. Period.

C'mon, people, you can do it.  Take five to e-write.  I did, and I feel great.
