I think it's a testament to how uptight and scared of human sexuality we are, as a culture, despite the commercialization of sex in this country.

EVerything Americans need is getting lost in the Senate.

Time to end the filibuster.

And the next time we have the opportunity ... VOTE OUT THE GOP.

"Obama’s historic commitment — featured prominently in his State of the Union speech last month — helped soothe his frayed relationship with the politically powerful gay and lesbian community."

Politically powerful gay and lesbian community?

Give me a break.

That's why recognition of our partnerships have been banned in repeated spiritual attacks on our dignity in 30 states, and that's why we're STILL fighting to get DODT repealed.

If we were so powerful, we would not be living today, like every other day, in second-class shoes. We would already have our civil equality.

Significant? Absolutely. Yes. Powerful? No.

Year after year, collectively, we have donated significant amounts of personal money to the Democrats to not only promote the principles of equality and liberty but to advance progressive ideals, overall, only to find most Democrats complicit in the state-sanctioned discrimination against us.

Our money.

That is our "power."

Peter;

Great post, as are many of yours I've read. Meant to fan you before, but better late than not at all. Keep up the good work. Remember, it's not just the GLBT community who stand to gain from a positive resolution to full equality for all of our nation's citizens, and some of us actually are aware of it.

Oops, my bad. In the above post I meant "public option, not "single payer". Obama jettisioned that at the very begining.

So pass it already. When are the American citizens going to wake up to the fact, what they want doesn't mean squat. This whole hula baloo reminds me of the Heath care fiasco, even with no single payer, legal mandates for everyone to buy insurance from the crooks that are ripping us off, several polls showing of the "single payer" option we've still got nada.

Of course it will stall in the Senate, and it will be used like a battering ram in the fall elections.

If DADT doesn't pass, the Dems can kiss their majorities goodbye.

Don't Ask, Don't Donate until we have equal rights before the law

When you say things like that, you just give the Rushpublicans more reason to obstruct.

And when you say things like that, you remind me of how sick I am of hearing you make excuses for not doing anything. You had a sixty seat majority, and you dragged your 4$$ on GLBT civil rights. You blew it, because you are incompetent.

If they do not overturn this ridiculous policy, each and every gay lesbian and TG in the armed forces should come out on the same day....try running your military without them.....fools in charge.
