  2. Surrender your rights, humanity, and dignity if you wish, Liz, but I'll be voting to keep mine. Thanks, anyway!

  4. I know that some of the bitter, middle-aged queens who comment often here aren't going to like this, but I have to say, I'm getting a little tired of seeing Zach Wahls popping up into the political conversation every two weeks or so. Yes, he is an admirable person, and I am glad he is our ally, but come on, let some other cute twinkish in a fratboy kind of way dude have a chance to develop a following in the gay community! You're cute, Zach, but you ain't that cute! Just keeping it real, y'all... just keeping it real!

  5. LIZ, I know you are really the misanthropic RATBASTARD in disguise, so please take your pathetic longing for love from straight white Republicans who hate you and defile some other forum... please!

  6. Liz... you know you'll burn in hell for looking at this site right? Turn away.

  7. Liz, plesae explain how voting for Romney, who has pledged to not only stop the momentum of equality for LGBT's, but to actually take away what rights we already have, is in my best interest. I'm all ears.

  9. RHR,
    Again, you are not focusing on the real issues.
    We need to be worried about our nation's economy. What about the deficit? We spend money we don't have...We need to stop giving our taxpayer money away. We need to end the corruption now. The fact is Obama is corrupt!
    And he is inept...Inept in his policy and in his ability to negotiate and work with the Senate and Congress
    Obama is not going to give you equal rights
    Our community will reach equality, but it won't be under Obama's watch.
    Obama did not bring about change.
    He has failed to live up to his promises.
    He's all rhetoric
    It's time to fire Obama and give someone else a chance to make the right decisions and govern wisely
    and it might surprise you...what Romney is capable of
    A decent, moral, and intelligent Man!

  10. Liz is a troll but there are too manies LGBT that vote for people who want to take away their rights and this because they think that few dollar less taxes will change their world.

  11. Really, a lesbian named Liz? Could you be any more obvious a GOP plant.

    You're just copy/pasting off the GOP website.

  14. TANK you are the average bitter gay who gets snippy about cute boys who take away the attention. Get over yourself and your "keeping it real". Whatever the hell that's supposed to mean.

    Posted by: DrJWL | Jul 25, 2012 10:19:36 AM


  15. I agree with you on one point, Liz. We need to stop giving our taxpayer money away. We need to stop giving it to "job creators" in forms of tax breaks. No jobs, just money in their pockets. We need to stop moving taxpayer money into offshore tax havens. Put that money to work here in the US. Romney has pledged to take away rights we already have, yet you still try to sell him as someone we should trust. Since you know all about Romney, Liz, perhaps you can tell us exaclty how many classes he would actually like to divide the people into?

  16. How soon they forget. Who had been President for almost 8 years when the economy tumbled? George W Bush, a Republican. What was a major factor in the malfeasance of the banking industry and Wall Street? Deregulation, which is practically the Republican party's raison d'etre.

    Which political party still promotes a "trickle down" theory of economics despite the fact that it has NEVER worked? The GOP, by tailoring their policies to benefit NOT even the "1%," but the .001%. This while the middle class shrinks each year, their earnings stagnant since the 1980s.

    Which party appointed the Supreme Court Justices who made the "Citizens United" ruling that allows limitless corporate cash in elections, essentially putting democracy for sale to the highest bidder? They were appointed by Republicans.

    Which party, in response to the vast number of people without access to health care, the common experience of seeing financially ruined by even fairly common illnesses, is basically "drop dead"? The GOP. This even though it has become an everyday occurrence to see a news story about a violent attack that ends with "donations to cover health care costs can be made...." Even though it's common to see jars at local stores begging for spare change to cover medical bills.

    Which party has been behind the demonization of LGBT people to benefit themselves politically? Republicans. They oppose even the most basic of rights for gay people, not just marriage but protections in housing and jobs.

    Which party's Presidential candidate is a high-profile member of a religion that has involved itself POLITICALLY across the country including Hawaii to oppose gay rights? The GOP, through their candidate Mitt Romney.

    Who would have to be insane to vote for Mitt Romney? YOU!

  18. Wow! Great rant Caliban. I couldn't have put it half as succinctly.

    Posted by: J. Leo | Jul 25, 2012 11:18:08 AM


  19. Liz, what will you do with all your money and luxuries when you would be stripped off all your basic rights or to say, have no rights in comparison to your straight counterparts whatsoever. Jeez, if only people could trade their money for rights. And even if it's all politics then also we should realise that if we all vote and make Obama win this time with a large margin then it would not only build considerable pressure on them but also on other parties who aspire to win in future or stay in power for that matter to bring a change for good. So guys be responsible citizens and do vote for Obama so that unlike us, our children won't be deprived of the rights that we crave for.

  21. The only politician who ever made me feel hope and tingle with goosebumps is Obama, to hear a sitting president say he supports Gay Marriage is chilling. Pandering or not what does it matter. Obama has done more then any other president has done for us.

  22. For years now, Tank has started his rants off with "you bitter, middle-aged queens". Tank, sweetie, I'm sure you're a bit long in the tooth yourself by now, Hun.

  23. the "forward" letters/GLBT Obama logo at the parade at the end of the clip would make a great tee-shirt. create the art from that angle, and it demonstrates progress.

  24. Romney is just an empty suit who is far too grand to eat cookies from the best bakery in town, perfectly willing to diss the nice ladies who were duped into hosting him and setting out snacks for his worthless ass. In his world, his "little culinary folks" nibble the burned edges off his cookies and array them tastefully on doilies spun from spider silk for his delectation. And that's the way it is.

  25. @ LIZ :

    You are wrong, wrong, wrong.
    You want to turn the Supreme Court over to a majority of conservative right wingers like Alito and Scalia and Thomas....and that's where a vote for Romney will take us.

    @ CALIBAN above is correct.......the Republicans brought destruction of the economy, undermined Magna Carta, approved torture, acted criminally on wire taps without getting warrants, reneged on their committments to the Geneva Conventions, were "on the bridge" for 9/11,and recklessly ignored the warnings, and have given and continue to support tax cuts for the wealthy.

    Obama has got rid of the shame of DADT, supports marriage equality, has brought cases through the Attorney General to declare DOMA unconstitutional and has prevented absolute catastrophy in the economy, which is where Bush and the Republicans took the country.
    Liz, Republicans are essentially social climbers, they will sell their souls/integrity for self advancement, they have no interest in, or commitment to, the concept of a society where social programmes are lauded and seen as the mark of a civilized society.
    Instead the Republicans are the Tea Party of self interests, don't want to pay tax, hide their wealth in foreign accounts and bible thump the bitterness of the Bible to claim the support of the Almighty.
    Republicans are enemies of society......they are the personified selfish instincts of all megalomaniacs.
