May 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Sunherald.com

She figured she'd never have a legal spouse to help with the backbreaking work. Then Purser, a member of Washington state's Suquamish Tribe who knew she was gay at age 7, decided to act: She led a personal lobbying campaign that ended with her tribal council voting in 2011 to approve same-sex marriage.

A little background for my next post.

Russell Means

activist, actor
Born: November 10, 1939
Died: October 22, 2012
Birthplace: Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Pine
Ridge, South Dakota
Russell Means, an Oglala Lakota, served as the first
national director of the American Indian Movement
(AIM) and became one of the organization's best-known spokespeople. Means was one of the Indian
activists who in 1969 occupied San Francisco's
Alcatraz Island in a landmark AIM-led protest that
lasted 19 months; in 1973, he helped lead the AIM
takeover of Wounded Knee. Both events brought
worldwide attention to the injustices and privation
faced by American Indians past and present. As an
actor, Means has appeared in such films as The
Last of the Mohicans (1992) and Natural Born
Killers (1994) and provided the voice of Powhatan
in 1995's Pocahontas. In 2004, Means ran for
president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, but was
defeated by Cecelia Fire Thunder, the first woman
to be elected to that office.

Exert from

"For America to
Live, Europe Must
Die"

By Russell Means
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/arti...

(You notice I use the term American
Indian rather than Native American or
Native indigenous people or
Amerindian when referring to my
people. There has been some
controversy about such terms, and
frankly, at this point. I find it absurd.
Primarily it seems that American
Indian is being rejected as European in
origin-which is true. But all the above
terms are European in origin; the only
non-European way is to speak of
Lakota-or, more precisely, of Oglala,
Brule, etc.-and of the Dineh, the
Miccousukee, and all the rest of the
several hundred correct tribal names.

(There is also some confusion about
the word Indian, a mistaken belief that
it refers somehow to the country,
India. When Columbus washed up on
the beach in the Caribbean, he was not
looking for a country called India.
Europeans were calling that country
Hindustan in 1492. Look it up on the
old maps. Columbus called the tribal
people he met "Indio," from the Italian
in dio, meaning "in God.")

Dang! You might want to get a check up in case you're becoming a liberal like me.
LMAO
Ha! If anything, you might be the one who should get a check-up because all of that political correctness crap comes from the left. There's hope for you yet :)

Then YOU must be the BIGGEST Queer in town, LIAR, for that's all you do.

(Capital Q for "Queers" from here on in, please, it IS a proper noun, you know, like "Bill" or "Chicago" or "America".)

I agree. It takes three lefties to equal the intelligence of one right winger.
