Unfortunately, it seems like it will take a very long time for true full reform."

  2. Yes it is cheap. May be they know they can't win, they don't put too much money on it. Still a waste of money.

  4. if hiring ambrosino is ezra klein's idea of establishing "ideological diversity" at vox, he might as well hire a klansman too.

  6. It is incredible that Jared Leto has actually gone to Kiev, Ukraine for a personal visit. I know of no other major film star who would do the same. Round of applause for the guy.

    I don't know why they are limiting the rainbow crosswalks to just the Castro area. We could use them all over town. Before Castro the Polk Street area held the largest gay community and those crosswalks should be painted in the rainbow colors.

    Love seeing Rickey in his boxers. Thank you.

    The White House Petition to stop the anti-gay policies is not doing that well. With a required 100,000 signatures it is barely alive with just 1,365. So much for the gay community's support of their own people. As long as it doesn't touch their lives directly they don't give a sh*t. If you do, you can sign it here: http://wh.gov/lPvmY BTW, I am not the author of this petition but have spent many hours promoting it on various websites from HuffPro to Joe My God. Again, people just don't seem to give a dam*.

  7. Norway... typical of Europe. Peoples' lives and well-being counts for nothing when it comes to crime. Murder is routinely punished by a few weekends in jail and nothing more. It's the same in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, the UK, etc. Europe does not value the lives of its citizens... pure and simple. Violent crime is barely punished there. The theory is that once the person is dead, you can't bring him back and Oh well... let's hope the murderer doesn't do it again.
    Disgusting.
