Here's another reason to keep the Republicans out of the White House...they would not light up the White House in the rainbow of colors! Thanks Mr. President! Every single GOP candidate for president blasted the Supreme Court for making gay marriage a right the very same week they blasted them (and filed new lawsuits, no kidding!) for upholding health care for the poor, the very same week they defended the confederate flag. At least the GOP is consistent-- they just hate everyone... except … [Read more...]
