Obama Backtracks on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell
Just a few weeks ago, current White House press secretary Robert Gibbs promised ‘a one word answer’ when it came to repealing the ban on gays openly serving in the military. Apparently the one word is ‘overpromising’ — which seems to be fast becoming the watchword of the new administration: The Obama administration is telling the Pentagon and gay-rights advocates that it will have to | Read More »
The Time to Re-Group is Over—Let’s Roll!

The Gay Reich Movement Strikes Again
You know, there is nothing wrong with a protest. There is nothing wrong with a boycott. But hounding people out of work, harassing people who refuse to go along with the boycott, etc. crosses a line that should not be crossed. In the latest escapade of the gay reich movement, the Los Angeles Times chronicles the fall of El Coyote. The Times notes Margie Christoffersen | Read More »
It’s a Pre-Gay-Day Open Thread
You too can call in work tomorrow on the grounds that you are reeeeaaaalllllllyyyyyyy happy! So come on, get happy. And look on the bright side: maybe Barney Frank will take one day away from destroying the markets.
Jon Meacham’s Profound Cowardice and Jackassery
I should leave the Newsweek hit job as I left it, but I think more needs to be said about Jon Meacham’s column. Meacham is the Editor of Newsweek and his column shows a profound disrespect for people of faith and a great amount of cowardice. Let’s deal with it. Meacham writes No matter what one thinks about gay rights—for, against or somewhere in between | Read More »
Newsweek Joins the Gay Reich Movement. Declares War on the Bible
Geez, now I’m embarrassed to have ever been profiled in the magazine. If you thought they were maintaining a notion of fair, independent journalism when they turned into an opinion rag advocating global warming, get a load of their new issue. It tries to use the Bible as justification for gay marriage. And in doing so, Newsweek’s editor opens with this wonderfully humorous editorial note: | Read More »
The Gay Reich Movement
It used to be about rights, but now it is about the Reich. Those who disagree are hounded from their jobs. We don’t call this totalitarianism. It’s just a boycott. Get a good flavor of it at my personal site. Read this thread.
Jim Martin’s Fundraiser
For those of you who think we should just let the Democrats have sixty seats and let them run the place, this is an important story. It’s an important story about how much damage the Democrats could do and how some groups, besides unions, are desperately seeking sixty Democrat senators. Down in Georgia, the Stonewall Democrats are throwing a fundraiser for Jim Martin. The Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgendered | Read More »
Annnnnnd there goes ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
Yes, I know that they said the end of 2009, maybe 2010: that’s Beltway-speak for “we figure that you’ll have forgotten about it by then.” Instapundit’s doing a roundup of reactions; please note that, happy or unhappy, nobody’s really surprised. Nobody should be, honestly. Moe Lane PS: Me? The military’s against it, and I’m for it. At the moment, the military’s ahead on points.
As a Woman, Does N.O.W. Speak for You?
On June 30, 1966, the National Organization for Women (N.O.W.) was founded with this statement of purpose, “To take action to bring women into full participation in the mainstream of American society now, exercising all the privileges and responsibilities thereof in truly equal partnership with men.” All women in America owe N.O.W. a debt of gratitude for the work they did for women’s rights.
