    Question: What would you pay to have your photo taken with first lady Michelle Obama, she of the ripped arms and healthy diet? If you said 5 grand, well, you’re in the ballpark, because the First Spouse is headed to Boston next month to do a parade of grip-and-grins with local Demmies, Obama-ophiles, fitness freaks, Dougie aficionados and anyone else who can pony up the dough. “I’ve been asked to be on the committee to gather women (men too) to come and hear, see and get a sense of this amazing lady,” wrote Brookline Democratic activist Diane Gallagher in a...

    On a day when White House hopeful Barack Obama launched a website to fight internet rumors, he warned some of his most generous supporters in Chicago the attacks may get worse as the election approaches and he'll continue to need their money. “They're going to try to make me into a scary guy,” Obama told a crowd of about 90 supporters at an elegant private home in Lincoln Park. “They’re even trying to make Michelle into a scary person.” Obama thanked one of his supporters at the event, former advertising executive Rick Fizdale, for spelling out his nametag as “Rick...

    The Politico ^ | April 17, 2008 | Jonathan Martin
    For reasons of financial necessity, personal preference and plain politics, John McCain is gearing up to run one of the least traditional presidential campaigns in recent history. The problem is that even prominent strategists within McCain’s own party wonder if his unorthodox strategy will work. Facing the prospect of competing against a Democrat who is on track to shatter every fundraising record — and confronted by his own inability to rake in large bundles of cash — McCain and his key advisers have largely been forced into devising a three-pronged strategy that they hope can turn their general election weaknesses...

    Platform and positions NAMBLA describes itself as a "support group for intergenerational relationships," and uses the slogan "sexual freedom for all." According to the group's web site, its aim is to "support the rights of youth as well as adults to choose the partners with whom they wish to share and enjoy their bodies." Google Search of NAMBLA's IP http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=216.220.97.17&btnG=Search One of the group's arguments is that age of consent laws can unnecessarily criminalize sexual relationships between adults and minors (particularly boys). http://www.warriorsfortruth.com/nambla.html In 1980 a NAMBLA general meeting passed a resolution, proposed by Tom Reeves, which said: "(1) The...

    TRENTON, N.J. -- New Jersey lurched into a financial crisis Friday as the midnight deadline to adopt a budget neared and a dispute over the governor's plan to increase the sales tax remained unresolved. Gov. Jon S. Corzine was expected Saturday morning to order an unprecedented state government shutdown after an hourlong meeting Friday night between Corzine and top legislative officials ended without agreement and significant differences remaining. "Over the last several days the administration has worked on contingency plans for the orderly shutdown of state government," Corzine spokesman Anthony Coley said. "At this time, it looks like we may...
  • Bill to ban 'mom, dad' from texts advances

    A bill requiring students to learn about the contributions homosexuals have made to society and that would remove sex-specific terms such as "mom" and "dad" from textbooks has passed another hurdle on the way to becoming the law of the land in California. Having already been approved by the state's Senate Judiciary Committee, SB 1437, which would mandate grades 1-12 buy books "accurately" portraying "the sexual diversity of our society," got the nod yesterday of the Senate Education Committee. The bill also requires students hear history lessons on "the contributions of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender to...

    Daily Princetonian ^ | 04/05/2006 | Sherif Girgis and Ryan Anderson
    Last Tuesday, the LGBT Center sponsored a panel discussion, "The Religious Right's Obsession with Gay Sex." We supposed that the pejorative title was meant to draw attention but hoped that the presentations would at least begin with a fair exposition of the views of religious conservatives on homosexual conduct and identity. We expected the sort of free and evenhanded intellectual exchange befitting an event sponsored by an official University administrative office intended for the whole University community. We were spectacularly disappointed. Our criticisms have nothing to do with the panel's topic. It is an important one and that's precisely why...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 21 /U.S. Newswire/ -- LGBT elected and appointed leaders from across the United States and around the world passed an historic resolution in Seattle this weekend at the Gay & Lesbian Leadership Conference calling upon "all nations and governments to adopt a vocal, clear and consistent policy on international human rights abuses against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people that includes a call on other countries to abolish sodomy laws." Attendees, some who traveled from as far away as Sri Lanka and Poland, vowed to continue to bring attention to the horrific record of some countries on this...

    If you think that comparing Evangelical Christians to the Taliban sounds extreme, you might just be a normal American. But if you think that the comparison is valid, you might just be a supporter of North Carolina Senator Julia Boseman. In fact, Boseman’s supporters have just launched a new website making that very comparison. Even worse, they go on to say the following of both Republicans and Christian Fundamentalists: “Hate is their currency. Ignorance is their sacrament. Racism is their communion.” Julia Boseman’s attacks on Evangelical Christians began months ago in one of the most disgraceful episodes of political passive...

    It sounds like one of those Jeff Foxworthy jokes, doesn’t it?  ''If directions to your house include what to do after you turn off the dirt road, you might be a redneck.''  ''If your grandmother wakes you up in the middle of the night and says ‘come look at this before I flush it,’ you might be a redneck.''  ''If you introduce someone to your brother and the father of your child and there’s just one guy standing there, you might be a redneck.'' You know the bit.         But this article isn’t about a redneck.  It’s about Julia Boseman,...
