obama agenda for gays
Talk about efficiency. WhiteHouse.gov, the official site of the President, was updated to reflect the changeover from President George Bush to President Barack Obama within a few minutes of Obama’s inauguration. Has anyone visited the site yet, and if so, have you seen The Agenda page? I have to say that I am impressed—it lays out Obama’s civil rights agenda, which includes broad support for the LGBT community.
Among Obama’s positions: He supports the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and believes anti-discrimination employment laws should be expanded to include sexual orientation and gender identity; and he supports full civil unions that give same-sex couples legal rights and privileges equal to those of married couples.
Additionally, Obama thinks we should repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, and he opposes a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.
He also wants to repeal the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy; ensure adoption rights for all couples and individuals regardless of their sexual orientation; and develop a comprehensive national AIDS/HIV strategy.
This is all in writing! On the President’s Web site!
What do you think of it, and do you believe he will accomplish all of his LGBT rights goals within his first term?

Montreal comedy duo Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel prank-called Governor Sarah Palin yesterday pretending to be French President Nicolas Sa
Montreal comedy duo Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel prank-called Governor Sarah Palin yesterday pretending to be French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Not only did Palin’s aide hand off the call but Palin stayed on the phone conversing for six minutes before the duo revealed to her that she had been fooled.
When fake Sarkozy told her he hoped she would be president one day, Palin replied: “Haha, maybe in eight years.”
Palin also responded to a compliment on heer hunting abilities: “Oh, very good, we should go hunting together. I think we could have a lot of fun together as we’re getting work done. We could kill two birds with one stone that way.”
While the fake Sarkozy asks her if she’s married to Joe the Plumber and tells her that “We have the equivalent of Joe the Plumber in France. It’s called Marcel, the guy with bread under his armpit,” Palin does not pick up on the joke.
Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs remarked on the call, saying, “I’m glad we check out our calls before we hand the phone to Barack Obama.”

Bush trying to steal the elections in Ohio
This year, there are over 600,000 newly registered Ohio voters, but President Bush has asked Attorney General Mukasey to investigate as many as 200,000 of them. Why? Because Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner has refused to use an “exact match” standard before adding these voters to the rolls.
What is this “exact match” standard? Basically, it works like this: After you fill out your voter registration card, a local or state employee has to type in your information to add you to the voter rolls, and check to see that you really exist, usually by verifying your driver’s license number or Social Security number. And as you can imagine, sometimes there are typos or other disparities when the information gets entered and matched – for example, if your last name is “De la Rosa” and it got entered as “Delarosa”, you would fail to meet the exact match standard, and your registration form would be invalid.
Secretary Brunner has refused to use this standard on the grounds that it would erroneously deprive tens or even hundreds of thousands of Ohioans of their right to vote. The Ohio GOP sued her a month ago to try and get the courts to compel her to use the exact match standard, but the Supreme Court ruled that they had no standing to make that case.
Now, President Bush is trying to run around the Supreme Court by getting the Department of Justice to intervene. On Friday, October 24th, Bush reportedly asked Attorney General Mukasey to investigate whether as many as 200,000 voters need to reconfirm their registrations before November 4th – which would almost certainly result in forcing them to vote provisionally.
I just signed a petition urging Attorney General Mukasey not to act on President Bush’s sickening request. I hope you will, too.
Please have a look and take action.
