  1. It’s almost funny, watching someone pretend to care about human suffering, when they have prosecuted more whistleblowers, deported more immigrants, and brought in more powers for extra-judicial killings than any other in their position before them. Almost funny, but more tragic than anything.

    1. Deporting immigrants? Are you sure about that? Anyway, he is the most LGBT friendly president the world has seen. So, would you rather have George Bush back?

      1. To be fair: I’ve just checked, and he’s not the worst for deportations, yet; he’s on course to be so by the end of the year.
        As for preferring Bush: that’s like asking if you’d rather be shot or stabbed; why do I have to have either? At least when a Republican is in charge, the supposedly liberal members of the population will call out the government on its human rights abuses.

        He has deported more because
        his administration deports people who commit crimes!

    Long overdue law indeed Obama!

    The title should have been changed to “Prevention Of Violence Against People Act” – instead of “Violence Against Women Act”

    The next law Congress must pass is the “Employment And Non-Dicrimination Act” (otherwise known as ENDA)!

    Another law that’s needs passing in Congress is the “Respect For Marriage Act” (otherwise known as RFMA) – this is a proposed law that will finally repeal the 1996 unconstitutional, biased, bigoted and hateful DOMA law!

      The law also applies to men in cases
      of domestic abuse.
