Support Love!

Support Gay Marriage, uphold EQUALITY. Takes less than a minute!

In addition to the likely court ruling on same-sex marriage, the issue may be headed back to the ballot: Opponents of gay marriage have been collecting signatures to qualify measures for the June 2006 vote that would ban same-sex marriage.

1. Call the Governor: 916-445-2841

ThisLoveHasAlwaysExisted
(originally written for the black community, from an African-american queer)

Once was a dude named Saul, in the Bible look him up under Paul. Raised Jew, he made it his business to pursue Christians right after Christ died and left for the sky, he even …

From The National Enquirer, for those enquiring minds

BRAD PITT dropped a bomb on Warner Bros., informing them that ex-wife JENNIFER ANISTON is phasing out of their jointly owned Plan B
production company — so he secretly took it to Paramount Pictures and
signed a three-year deal! Fast-moving Warner honchos instantly inked
Jennifer, who'll star in and/or exec-produce 20 flicks in a five-year
mega-deal that'll make her one of Hollywood's most powerful women.
(Holy GEE, Ho'lie!)

FEMA CHIEF, IDIOT

The same day Brown wrote Chertoff, Brown also urged local fire and rescue departments outside Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi not to send trucks or emergency workers into disaster areas without an explicit request for help from state or local governments. Brown said it was vital to coordinate fire and rescue efforts.

Kanye West Rips Bush During NBC Concert

Kanye West Rips Bush During NBC Concert
By FRAZIER MOORE, AP Television Writer 7 minutes ago

It began, fittingly enough, with jazz from New Orleans natives Harry Connick Jr. and Wynton Marsalis. But "A Concert for Hurricane Relief," a heartfelt and dignified benefit aired on NBC and other networks Friday night, took an unexpected turn thanks to the outspoken rapper Kanye West.

Appearing two-thirds through the program, he claimed "George Bush doesn't care about black people" and said America is set up "to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible."

Here's to hoping that people take his words as TRUTH and not as JUST "emotions running high". Would it surprise YOU if Bush/his advisors made a decision to let GOD DO AS HE WISHED...cleansing a city of sin? A city that's also lost its value to Repbulicans by electing Democrats, a city 70 percent black, MANY poor...but perhaps it's best to keep it simple…

WHERE THE HELL IS DAVE CHAPPELLE? (Katrina)

[2007 edit: This was a live blog I did while watching Katrina unfold, staring in horror in front of the tv; thinking about quitting my job and hitching a ride - - thinking people must be going there, but they weren't and I haven't been back. Yet.]

Went on to say:
"With unplanned contingineces, the forces have to be larger, plan for the unexpected, this is a great example of that

Did New Orleans Catastrophe Have to Happen? 'Times-Picayune' Had Repeatedly Raised Federal Spending Issues
...Yet after 2003, the flow of federal dollars toward SELA dropped to a trickle. The Corps never tried to hide the fact that the spending pressures of the war in Iraq, as well as homeland security -- coming at the same time as federal tax cuts -- was the reason for the strain. At least nine articles in the Times-Picayune from 2004 and 2005 specifically cite the cost of Iraq as a reason for the lack of hurricane- and flood-control dollars.

Newhouse News Service, in an article posted late Tuesday night at The Times-Picayune Web site, reported: "No one can say they didn't see it coming. ... Now in the wake of one of the worst storms ever, serious questions are being asked about the lack of preparation."

In early 2004, as the cost of the conflict in Iraq soared, President Bush proposed spending less than 20 percent of wh…
