The victim stated that no other words were said by either party, either before or after the assault."

    No more “crazy” than a White House which insists on demoralizing the Democratic base and depressing voter turnout on their own side to chase after the 4 or 5 Republican voters who still like Obama.

    Of the president’s clueless minions, Gibbs is probably the most disappointing of them all.

    And that’s from a group that includes Rahm Emmanuel, David Axelrod, Timothy Geithner, and Larry Summers.

    On The Chicago Trib:
    I am for full civil rights for all.
    I am for marriage equality.
    Whats interesting:
    In a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, two out of every three Americans favored providing civil unions for same-sex couples. It also would preserve the right of states to enact same-sex marriage if they choose.

    Cristiano Ronaldo has a body and face which are perfect, but I lost my interest when as a single father of a newborn baby he left his son to his mother (the baby’s grand mother) and traveled to NYC where he spent time with his then girl friend who didn’t send him home to be with his child. How can you adore the body when the guy acts like this? There would have been time to be his girl friend at his home when the baby was sleeping. I am not trying to be moralist. It is just difficult to unite the body and mind – adore the body and well — the mind…

    I moved from the USA to Canada and I seriously don’t understand what’s so bad with “canadian style” healthcare… there are issues here, but there is one big difference, I NEVER have to worry about wether I’m covered or if I’ll lose it and my house if I get sick. I’m sorry, that’s pretty good from where I’m sitting.

  5. says

    The Chicago Tribune obviously doesn’t get it. Reread Judge Walker’s opinion, op-ed writers. Listen to Boies/Olson. They know what they’re talking about!

    There is NO rational or valid reason for gay couples to be excluded from civil marriage. None. The only reason is discrimination, period. Crafting a separate and therefore unequal status for gay couples to semi-satisfy some poll majority doesn’t even come close to being a valid reason.

    The majority can adapt to equality. They’ve done it before. Equality shouldn’t have to adapt to majority whims.

  6. ChrisM says

    As a professional leftie I think someone needs to point out to Robert Gibbs how difficult the next election is going to be without people like me. I’m currently still willing to support the President and give him the benefit of the doubt on some issues. However, I certainly don’t appreciate, or need, Gibbs to remind me of what I consider Obama’s shortcomings and basically tell me that I’m wrong for doing so. Seems that they don’t mind sending me solicitations for donations (daily) – guess my leftie money is good enough for them it’s just my ideas and opinions that they don’t want.

  7. Ingmar says

    So why isn’t Jeffree Starr suing the shit out of the city of Temecula? Doesn’t the state of California have laws against such discrimination… if his claim is to be believed.
