Organizations like FIFA and the country of Qatar take away from the true spirit of the sport through their discrimination. Discriminating over one's sexual preference is uncalled for in any and all circumstances. It's common sense that homosexuals are no better or worse than anyone else, and should be left alone to live life on their own terms.
In the bizarro election of 2014, where the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage backed pro-gay Democratic candidates to show the GOP that they will help defeat any Republican candidate who veers from the evangelical right's agenda, pro-gay hedge-fund billionaire Paul Singer helped the anti-gay GOP take control of the U.S. Senate.
The Valerie Jarrett I have come to know and work with has had vision, skill, patience, and passion -- and has been a key engine of this administration's getting important, life-changing, legacy-shaping things done.

Didn't think you were ever going to see the words "exciting" and "Secretary of State" or "State Controller" in the same sentence? Well, then you haven't really lived.
If you have watched any of Rick Snyder's election ads you will see that the governor fancies himself a leader, however, since being a leader isn't a title one can just bestow upon one's self the question should be what does the governor's record tell us about his leadership skills.

The National Organization for Marriage has committed $117,000 to support the election of Thom Tillis, a key architect of North Carolina's gay marriage ban, to the U.S. Senate. But even if he wins, the organization loses: It's too late for anyone to stop marriage equality in North Carolina.
