Politics As Usual...

Pandering To The Conservatives

Washington DC - It looks like business as usual at the White House when it comes to political promises for change as the picture above shows.

The White House web page section "Civil Rights" is a far cry from the former where it went into better details what "exactly" our new president had in mind regarding change for the better. Don't get me wrong, I really love our new President but am a bit disappointed since his strong voice has been "toned down" when it comes to changes in equality and fairness under the laws.

When will DADT become a faded memory? Why is it "cooling off" on the back burner when more troops are needed in Afghanistan?

What about DOMA? With the passage of equality in 4 states, why are there not more calls for its demise? When will the government realize that we should all be treated fairly under the laws especially when it comes to civil liberties/rights.

I urge you to contact - President Obama and let him know that although he is dealing with many issues that affect all Americans, some issues that deny our "minority group" are just as important as we too are Americans and families!

Standing up (ok, sitting down) for our rights!

Keep a smile on your face and love in your heart!
