Too bad Obama isn’t old enough to understand what “separate but equal” really means.
The more time that passes, the more evident it is that Obama is talking out of his back passage. It’s such a pity, many people really believed that there were gonna be big political changes for LGBT Americans and their rights. But given that he said pretty much everything in this speech before and soon after inauguration and still has done nothing about it shows that he’s obviously as all talk and no action as any other politician. And given that he doesn’t even support gay marriage… Hmph. It’s kinda depressing. :/ Personally I couldn’t care less about the military, but apparently openly gay people wanna get themselves killed for no reason, and the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell required to make that happen has been buried in a package of reforms that will allegedly likely be rejected (that is, the package will not be voted through because of legitimate objections to content other than the DADT repeal, which will nonetheless go down with the ship. (That’s as I understand it anyway. My knowledge of the US ‘process’ is admittedly meagre, so feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.)) So not even that is going to happen. There really is nothing new under the sun.
I’ll believe it when I see it.
Lots of words so far, but little action in bringing forward legislation.
get your own house in order first, dumbass.
18 months into his presidency (30 months left, of which 12 will be spent campaigning) and he has hospital visitation right, some SS benefits for federal employees, and ENDA: all good in themselves, but not enough of what was expected from a “fierce” advocate.
