Response to Leah Libresco re: relationships.

Bachmann: we’re in the end times.

Boehner is not the best liar…

It’s obvious that the GOP is willing to hold a gun to Lady Liberty’s head in order to subvert the democratic process, but there was at least some question as to whether or not they’d actually be able to pull the trigger.  Now there is no doubt.  The GOP is willing to tank our economy [Read More...]

Russia attempting to keep gays from adopting children.

When Russia passed its law against educating young people about LGBT issues, the reasoning was: “I think this is kind of an invented problem,” he said. “We don’t have a law banning non-traditional sexual relations, we have a different law. “It is the informational protection of the young generation.
