Barack Obama, our next President

During the struggles of the Civil Rights Movement (Negro Revolution), Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. proclaimed:“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky) recently took a stand on the Senate Floor and delivered an historic 13-hour long filibuster challenging the Obama Administration for its policy to use military drone strikes against American citizens on U.S. soil without due process, which would be in conflict with the U.S. Constitution.

The Obama Administration caused this upheaval when, in a letter from U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to Sen. Paul, Mr. Holder declared the Administration technically could use military force to kill an American citizen on U.S. soil in an “extraordinary circumstance,” but,“it has “no intention of doing so.”

Thomas Jefferson left behind this responsible advice:“Every generation needs a new revolution.”

Mark Twain noted:“The past does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.” Correspondingly, there’s a paralleling stand with Dr. King’s peaceful Negro Revolution more than a half-century ago.

Our stand is against the prejudice and corruptness of the U.S. government

Sen. Rob Portman (R) of Ohio, a steadfast conservative, announced his support for gay marriage Friday, reversing his previous opposition to it.

“I have come to believe that if two people are prepared to make a lifetime commitment to love and care for each other in good times and in bad, the government shouldn’t deny them the opportunity to get married,” he wrote in an editorial for The Columbus Dispatch.

The Republican senator’s “change of heart” came about after his son Will told his family in February 2011 that he is gay. He is making the announcement now because the US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on two gay marriage cases in the last week of March, he told CNN and four Ohio newspapers in an exclusive meeting Thursday.

Good for him. Of course he'll now feel the wrath of the ignorant rightwingers.

You try dealing with these ignorant rightwingers. The fact that there are this many dummies roaming around is bound to make any normal person bitter and depressed. We need spending cuts and tax increases, we're broke remember.

Gay rights activists say Portman will not be the last Republican senator to endorse gay marriage.

“We are moved by the love and support ... Portman and his wife are showing their son,” Ian James, FreedomOhio co-founder, told the Cincinnati Enquirer.“We appreciate the fact that the Senator wants his son to be able to marry and form a family to find the same happiness and security as his parents. Each day you can feel the momentum building toward ending marriage discrimination in Ohio.”

John Galt moved as well?

Homer is half right, as usual.

The Romney campaign learned about Portman's son when vetting Portman for the VP slot. Portman would have made a far better choice than Paul Ryan and was probably passed over because, because, because. At this point Portman has nothing to lose__he'll continue along as a senator and his kid won't hate him.

Galt is focused on cutting spending and keeping taxes down.

Homer can focus on the important stuff like birth control, homosexual marriage, and gun control.

Jeesh, you are here every day chasing after your fictitious Waxman. Are you on welfare with nothing to do? What a sorry existence you have. If I had as much time as you to do nothing, I certainly wouldn't be on a lame Topix thread every minute of my life. Why don't you for for a walk, looks like you could use it, as long as you don't scare people.

I do every paycheck, although I guess that is not voluntary, but I am happy enough to do it.
