Obama Same-Sex Marriage Position: Why He Made His Decision

Obama Same-Sex Marriage Position: Why He Made His Decision

Commented May 10, 2012 at 11:03:02 in Politics

“Any two adults should be able to marry in my opinion. So, while I'm glad that President Obama has taken this stance publicly, it doesn't impress me much. Is he moving to allow gays and lesbians to file joint returns or claim social security spousal benefits? He said he didn't expect the issue to come before him. I guess that means he intends to do nothing about it at the federal level. He's leaving it to the states. Married in one state and not in another. What a mess. Seems to me he's trying to get some political milage without angering his more traditional supporters. There is no reason to think it's anything other but a calculated political move.”

“NEVER SATISFIED! What else do you want!”

Sonya Lowry on May 10, 2012 at 11:34:30

“You are spot on. When it comes down to this whole silly debate, it isn't about whether gay marriage is right or wrong, it is about whether any government should be dictating whether it is right or wrong. It is an individual decision and currently, rights of many of our citizens are being violated by the very governmental organizations we fund. Supporting gay marriage is all and well, but if you want to impress me, make changes across the board that support the freedom to choose your spouse.”

Annals of the Overrated: Lady Gaga and The Tree of Life

Commented May 27, 2011 at 13:17:06 in Entertainment

“Today on GMA Gaga asked students who are not being bullied to nurture those who are bullied or ignored. She has been a social force as well as a pop star. And now I read the esteemed Huffington Post and I find an example of bullying right on these pages, in your piece. Homely you call her? How mean. I merely disagree with your opinion on her music, but I object your attacking her personally based on your perception of her looks (I think she's gorgeous). I add that you display a profound ignorance about her and pop music in general. She has rightfully cited many influences. Madonna is one, the easiest one to point to given their shared ethic and cultural background. All artists have influences, and Madonna has been no exception (Marlene Dietrich for example).”

“In today's ridiculously loud and crowded landscape don't you have to do something to get yourself noticed? I mean I wouldn't dress up in meat, but what is everyone still talking about. She has a beautiful singing voice, and while I am not the biggest fan of the new music she's released I loved the Fame Monster! Someone said that they weren't sure if she was being ironic, she is, but she's not. She is, in that she knows that it's completely ridiculous, but she still wants the fame anyway. I think the fact that she is for disenfranchised makes her so different from so many other artists. At the end of the day the best part about her is that she grew up being different and now that she can be in the spot light, she can make different ok.”

“If originality is the absolute requirement, then art would stop. All artists are inspired and influenced by those who have gone before them. Gaga has credited her many influences, from Madonna to David Bowie and Andy Warhol to Grace Jones to Freddie Mercury. One could look back further and add Louise Brooks and Liberace. And let's not forget Betty Page (Beyonce has borrowed her look). As for Madonna, she too. Many if not most of her iconic looks were recreations of earlier artist poses. Try googling "Madonna the thief" to see these influences. I'm fine with Madonna's history of interpretations. She has put it all together into an incredible package that has influenced generations of artists including Gaga. Let's not lose sight of the entire picture. As for Gaga, she will forever hear this bs no matter what she does.”

“As a born again Christian and libertarian supporter of the Tea Party movement, I wholeheartedly support the repeal of DADT, support the right of gays to marry, and cheer Lady Gaga for her activism. I've heard her say - live - that Jesus loves everyone. There are no exceptions. Neither does our Constitution with the Bill of Rights carve out exceptions. I think her call that those who hate gays should leave the military is right on. I believe we need a strong military in a dangerous world, but let it be one that recognizes the worthiness of everyone and lets all patriots serve their country.”

Katy Perry SLAMS Lady Gaga's 'Blasphemous' New Video

Commented Jun 8, 2010 at 17:51:15 in Entertainment

“I'm a Christian and think it's a great video. The character she portrays in the video is not necessarily the character she wants to be. I don't see why she should be held to a standard that does not applies to other actors. I see the video as a commentary. In recent interviews, she has professed her faith in God and Jesus, while criticizing "religion" and in particular the religion she grew up in - Roman Catholicism. I don't see her video as a blashemy at all. Taking on a human institution is not blashemy. Regarding sex, she has encouraged her fans to get to know each other before having sex. In the video, she explores the region where militarism, sex and religion - with its repressed desires - meet. Not a pretty sight. At the same time, she explores the male form in masculine and feminine aspects, as well as dominant and submissive roles of her female character. I came away with a bad taste for militarism and for institutionalized faith, i.e. man-made religion that perverts faith and people by interposing The Church between God and creation. PS - I can see why Dr. Who wants her on their show!”

“I agree with Sizogee. And I hate seeing the esteemed Huffington Post get caught in the gossip page bs. Gaga is not preaching celibacy. She's too busy to form a relationship while touring and is advising her Little Monsters against hooking up with strangers. She promotes relationships and safe sex. She's giving out free condoms at concerts. As Lt. Frank Drebin might say: "There's nothing to see here." The gossip rags eat controversy and will create it where it doesn't exit.”

What's Next From Lady Gaga, a Snuff Film?

“Not everything has to be written for children. I'd like to see if either of these authors ever views something that is beyond PG-13. Give me a break. You can relax - broadcast tv, and MTV, are not showing it. Concerned parents have a lot more to worry about on the internet than this video. If they want, they can set up a filter on their computers. (Oops, that might keep Dad from seeing porn.) As for Telephone, it's chock full of ideas and very entertaining. It seems that critics agree, as you point out in angst. The diner scene bothered me at first, and then I thought about diners being poisoned by Wonder Bread and Miracle Whip sandwiches, with Gaga and Beyonce then dancing in American flag outfits. LOL Some product placement. Virgin Mobile did get product placement - and they should. They've put millions on the line fronting Gaga's over the top world tour. With production costs and rampant piracy, they have to find ways to make money. Can't blame them. In any case, I'd rather see real products than fake ones (Gaga's team says the Coke cans were not product placements, btw).”

“I felt sad that Gaga didn't get best album. She was sitting there holding her dad's hand and dressed to the nth degree. Her acceptance speech would have been awesome. There's no doubt she would have spoken for gay rights. She deserved the award in my opinion. Let's remember thought that this is the Grammys. How many great artists have never received a Grammy? The Who? Diana Ross? The Four Tops? Buddy Holly? The list is deep. In terms of the performances, I liked Pink's (I always enjoy her aerial shows) but 10 years from now people will be referencing the John/Gaga duet. I hope they collaborate again and again. A duet album of their ballads in a few years would be sweet.”

Five "Real" Dance Artists who Should Have Beat Lady Gaga at the Grammys

“I have to admit, I don't know the artists you mention. I'm a Little Monster, but maybe you're right about the genre you seem to know a lot about. I do know pop, for better or worse, and Gaga has not only had an amazingly successful year, she's also impacting our culture. I love her music, but more than that I love what she is doing with her fame. She's standing up for and marching with gays and their right to marry. (I loved how she called out Obama at the gay rights rally in DC, speaking truth to power.) She's standing up for kids who feel marginalized at school. She's given hundreds of thousands of dollars for Haiti. She exudes love for her fans. I can't think of a single artist or fan who has met her and said anything negative about her. And, while she gets slammed by critics and some artists who don't know her personally, she stays positive. I think she's a great role model for young and old alike. I wish she'd received best album, not just because she deserved it, but because her acceptance speech would have had an impact. I saw her at Purdue last week - she got over 6000 Midwesterners screaming for gay rights. Now that's something.”

showmeyourteeth on Feb 2, 2010 at 16:02:08

“I couldn't agree with you more! It is kind of hard to put her in a specific genre. She's dance/electronic but then you throw in her acoustic performances on the piano. She's a little bit of everything I guess. I was at that concert as well and the crowd was absolutely insane! Gaga is such a wonderful person. I mean, not that we know her personally, but with all the media out there...its not hard to see. Can't wait to see her again in concert!”

Lady Gaga Live: the Queer Pop Ghost in the Machine

“I saw on 1/26 at Purdue, from the second row. She gave a tremendous show and the place was absolutely wild with 6000 screaming, dancing fans. It seemed over soon after it started, but my watch said 2 hours had passed. Thanks for sharing the video, but you had to be there to appreciate the scope of it all. She had a huge trapezoidal stage; all 4 sides were gigantic video screens. The front screen would go up or down depending on the piece. It was a live performance surrounded by a music video. Every sense was engaged. I saw her up close. She's tiny and (to me) sexy and gorgeous, and not pretty according to the usual formula for US female pop stars. What was evident from the second row was that she works incredibly hard. I could see her sweat and could hear her voice. She also gave an endearing talk to the fans, telling them she loved them and appreciated them sticking with her after she'd postponed the 1/14 concert. Of 3000 tickets sold to students (at $36 each), only 1 was returned.”

“Comparing any young artist - even a "rookie of the year" like Gaga - to MJ or Madonna is pretty ridiculous. Gaga has one album (or 1 1/2 if you prefer). She's had immense success over the past year after years of paying her dues. She's still very young - only 23. MJ had a long career that was tragically cut short. (He was a big Gaga fan and said he wanted to collaborate with her.) He started out as a young child and his body of work is immense. You reference "Bad." He was 31 when it came out. Comparisons are not fair to MJ or Gaga. This is art - not competition - in my view. I may love only one baseball team (Go Red Sox!) but I love many artists in different genres.”

An Individual Mandate to Purchase Health Care Insurance <i>Is</i> Constitutional

An Individual Mandate to Purchase Health Care Insurance Is Constitutional

Commented Dec 18, 2009 at 10:45:17 in Politics

“Supporters of the individual mandate like to point to auto insurance as an analogy. There's a major difference. Driving is a privilege - unlike the right of living one's life - and people are required in most states to buy auto insurance to insure others against one's own negligence while driving. I was against the individual mandate under any circumstance, even with the public option. To address the issue of one getting free care by reneging on a health care bill, Congress could exempt health care costs from Chapter 7 bankruptcy (while still allowing a Chapter 13 reorganization of debts). At the same time, uninsured should not be gouged by health care providers, who usually charge them much more than people with insurance. Let's face it - there's a reason why big insurance and big pharma support the bill. They will get guaranteed customers through the individual mandate. The bill is a boon to these industries and will create a terrible burden on those who already can't afford to buy insurance. It will also make tax criminals out of millions of Americans who will not - or can not - comply.”

“This is a created story. I saw local media coverage. Thousands of people showed up and nearly all were happy. She left past 9, and according to the television report she had agreed as part of her contract to not sign autographs after that time. The mall had prevented people from lining up early and there were apparently concerns about security that late at night. Nonetheless, she signed autographs as she headed to the bus. Some were left disappointed, no doubt. In the video, I heard the same few voices booing. I can only imagine that at least some of that booing came from people associated with those making the video and getting it on Huff Post. One guy's voice was right near the camera, that was clear. Why don't you just face it, she has a huge enthusiastic following. Why make up and exaggerate stuff to tear her down? Are you interested in the truth or propaganda?”

What part of "small riot" or "horrible" sounds happy to you? Or was Stacy just "exaggerating"?

Since when is media called upon to be "friendly" to the powers that be? Hey, be adversarial - it's ok, this is America with a free press. This being such a big speech, too bad it wasn't covered more widely. Whitehouse.gov sets the tone for the muted coverage. Since the Administration is so astute about media matters, I wonder if it's part of a marketing strategy.
