The Lady in the Wheel Chair

There are 2 comments on the story from Sep 4, 2009, titled The Lady in the Wheel Chair. In it, reports that:

I was born and raised in South Africa (from 1956 to 1985) and practiced law there during the apartheid era and when I immigrated to the USA, around the time of sanctions, I truly believed that there was no discrimination of any kind in the United States of America...My fellow activists would probably shoot me down for saying this, but if it is not possible to rid us of DOMA, quickly or per se, there must, at the very least be legislation that seeks to remedy its impact. Immigration is the one area where this cannot happen quickly enough; our ‘de facto (existence) is begging for its de jure (validation.) Of the 1,138 federal rights and benefits that the LGBT community is denied, the worst (I am biased having suffered this particular form of discrimination) is the one that denies us two fundamental prerequisites to our basic freedoms and happiness: 1. The right to fall in love and live with whomever we choose from wherever we choose; without impacting - 2. Our right to remain in our homes and Country.

and people just don't believe me when i tell them.... the united states of america hates it's gay u.s. citizens (DOMA, DADT, Mini State DOMA's, Anti-Gay Adoption Laws, Denial of Immigration Benefits for a Gay U.S. Citizen Married to a Foreign National, Married Gay U.S. Citizens filing joint married in resident state (if their marriage is recongized), but are forced to file as single on their Federal Tax Forms, Tax-Free Religous cults pushing their 'Pray them queers Straight' mind control agenda's, their next door neighbors, their co-workers, their communities, even some of their relatives, ect., ect., ect.)

but few gay u.s. citizens listen to reason. america doesn't hate us, only a select few do (your State's, your Federal Gov't, your Military, your IRS, your christian cockroach religion, your next door neighbors, your co-workers, your communities, even some of your relatives). yep, only a select few hate you.

gay u.s. citizens, buy a gun. protect your family and yourself.

cockroach = christian = terrorist
terrorist = christian = cockroach
