We're bailing out WAL-MART

Did you know we are technically bailing out WAL-MART while it continues to make billions upon billions of dollars to the actual tune of $25,000 PER MINUTE???

Tell me what YOU think  

Ron Paul wins!!!

There might be hope for the Republican Party yet.

Ron Paul won the Conservative Political Action Committee's presidential straw poll, getting 31% of the vote. Either the Republicans have finally gotten their heads out of their asses or the CPAC has been taken over by Ron Paul supporters. Either way, Ron Paul winning this kind of thing is great!

Sarah Palin responds on Fox

It appears this has been vote botted by people who either agree with McFarlane or EXTREMISTS who just disagree with Sarah Palin 100% of the time.

Will you be out of a job this year?

It is day twelve of the Obama administration. Guantanamo is closing down as a detention center, and water-boarding is officially torture under this administration. However, the following have not been accomplished:

1. Gay marriages and or civil unions recognized nationally

2. Expansion of hate crimes to include crimes committed against the LGBT community.

3. Removal of "Don't ask, don't tell" and the full acceptance of gays in the military.

4. Adoption rights of the LGBT community.

5. Expansion of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act to include the LGBT community.


From Forbes Magazine comes a picture of doom and gloom. Many national brand names are set to close down more stores and put more people on the unemployment rolls. Needless to say, the worst is yet to come in terms of sales. Consumers are thrifty now, and with that, several items will be shunned.

Who are already dead? Well, the list right now is Circuit City, Linens 'N Things, Mervyn's, and Sharper Image. Now Sharper Image is planning on selling their high end merchandise through other retailers, so it will stay alive in that respect.

Forbes also says Sears is in danger of closing several stores or even going completely dead. One analyst named Britt Beemer says they might not even make it through the year. Many higher end eating places (even Applebees) will see some of their doors close also. In this economy, it's el cheapo or bust.

So who is in danger this year? Without a complete rehash of the article, here is the list:

1. Charming Shoppes (Lane Bryant, Fashion Bug, Catherines). They are in huge debt.

2. Eddie Bauer. Their stocks are trading at fifty cents right now and that is certainly a death-knell for the company.

3. Timberland. This one has the vaguest forecast from Forbes, as the sponsor of the Sundance Film Festival will most likely have some more stores close down.

4. Ann Taylor. Their stores are a little better off than others, but they have announced fifty-seven store closings over the next two years. Certainly not a good thing.

5. Zales/Piercing Pagoda. They have shut down twelve percent of their stores so far and are "in freefall" according to Forbes.

6. Pep Boys. They've closed six percent of their stores so far and are in as bad a shape as the auto industry.

7. Sprint/Nextel. So far, Sprint has closed nine percent of their stores and have such a narrow line in this area that the new thrifty consumers just aren't going for them.

8. Starbucks. Starbucks is just too expensive in this age of the thrifty consumer and many are now abandoning Starbucks for McDonald's McCafè.

9. Pacific Sunwear (Pac Sun). This one has closed sixteen percent of their stores in 2008. This one is the most unlikely candidate to go away, though.

10. Gap. Downgraded shares and hundreds of future store closings just aren't good.

It seems like economic hope is little more than a silly thing for this year.

The alternate address

This is day one of the Barack Obama presidency and the following have not been accomplished:

1. Gay marriages and or civil unions recognized nationally

2. Expansion of hate crimes to include crimes committed against the LGBT community.

3. Removal of "Don't ask, don't tell" and the full acceptance of gays in the military.

4. Adoption rights of the LGBT community.

5. Expansion of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act to include the LGBT community.

Five things Obama was in support of during the election cycle and these five things will be what I will hold Barack Obama and the Democratic Party accountable for.

To answer Obama's rhetorical question, "The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works — whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified," the LGBT answer is an astounding no. Our family isn't even recognized, if we're outed we stand a chance of getting fired just for who we are, and retirement is not dignified if the person we have spent our lives with has died. It's exactly the opposite.

Just like other rights issues (the right to vote, the right to equality, and many others), it is not a path for the faint-hearted and it is still a journey that continues today. We have fought with the rest of the country for freedom. We fought with the rest of this country to end slavery. We have fought with the rest of this country to allow others to have the same rights that have eluded us. During that time, we have patiently waited. This community has said time and time again, "Soon it will be our turn. One day, we'll be equal." That day has still not come.

The challenges of the LGBT community are not new. They have been in existence for a lot of recorded history. They've been in existence for many difference groups. Yet when we see other people getting exactly the equality that can be given to us, we are left wondering why we're even here. Why are we here in a country that is based on being endowed with "unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness"? How is the current system "...deny(ing) not to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws"?

We continue to brave our icy waters toward equality, and we continue to endure our storms. We continue to be tested, and the future will realize that we didn't give up. The future will know that we never stayed down, but we got right back up and continued our long journey toward equality--an equality for all people for all generations.

Happy One Day Before Obama's Inauguration Day

Wait, it's Martin Luther King Day? With all the media attention on Barack Obama, I didn't figure it out (sarcasm).

Personally, I'm already sick and tired of Obama and the man isn't even in office yet! It's not Obama's fault, but it's the media's fault. They have done nothing but gush over him since he threw his hat into the race. The media hand-picked him to be the Democratic nominee from the moment he stepped into the race. Obama got nothing but positive press from the media (even with some of the skeletons in his closet) to the point where McCain (who got a lot more negative press than Obama, go figure!) never really stood a chance.

Now one week before the inauguration, the media is STILL gushing over him, drawing comparisons to FDR and JFK. This is just getting ridiculous! I can see the McCain/Hitler comparisons now if he actually did win the presidential race.

I wish Obama all the luck in the world while in office, but right now the man could slaughter 15 people and the media would still be gushing all over him.

How Obama really won the election

A huge way that Obama won the election was the media's summer of love. Here are some facts from a Zogby poll of 512 Obama voters:

512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points

97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)

71.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet.....

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her "house," even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we "gave" one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)

And the media isn't liberal? Well, just for the funny, watch some of their actual, honest responses to the survey and how Obama got a huge slide from the media while McCain and Palin (as always from the media) were demonized:
