U.S. Federal Judge Puts End to Military's Don't Ask Don't Tell Policy - for Now

Article first published as A Federal Judge Orders Halt to Expulsion of Gays on Technorati.

In a blow to supporters of "Don't ask, don't tell," the federal policy that mandates the expulsion of homosexual soldiers serving in the United States military, a federal judge has ordered an injunction against the policy. In a September ruling, a U.S. District Judge found that the policy was unconstitutional.

Judge Virginia Phillips rejected a request by the Obama administration to delay her injunction ending the controversial policy. And ordered a permanent end to "Don't ask, don't tell."

GOP anti-gay views expressed by Carl Paladino

The resent spate of Anti-Gay violence would reason enough for some people to tone down the hateful rhetoric. But as we get closer to the 2010 mid-term elections, it is clear that somethings in politics never change. One party preaches and practices tolerance of those who are different (Dems) while the other continue to split our country apart with HATE. Some in the republican party talk that God Talk - but clearly, the fruits that they bare within is dark and indeed stark!

Obama is not the answer that liberals and blacks hoped for

From 1992 to 2000, America was blessed with a president who will surely go down as the peoples president. A man much maligned by the opposition for both his political mastery and his moral short comings. Say what you will about Bill "Bubba" Clinton, but he was and is the first Black president of the United States. Trust me - were we to follow the "One-Drop" rule, surely we would find at-least two drops in that soul of his.

But beside the trumpet playing and his ability to connect with Blacks, particularly at their churches, his policies helped to expand the black middle class like no other leader before or after him. You say but we have a black president. True - but so what? This is the true disappointment that liberals and many blacks feel with respect to President Obama. It is the Clearance Thomas effect in action. A "brother" in the most powerful of positions who appears uncomfortable in his own skin.

I have grown tired of watching president Obama 'shucking-n-jiving' like a little sambo in order to please the loud conservative bigots. The reality is that no matter how many terrorists he kills or gays he kicks out of the military they will never accept him. Instead of delivering on the promise, including advancing policies that favor blacks and other minorities, president Obama spends time on issues like cap and trade, energy, and global warming. A foreign language that starving and struggling people can't comprehend.

Will there ever be a better opportunity for Blacks and other minorities to have a president who can justify a tilt in their favor? If not you then who? Hillary 2012!!!

Christine O'Donnell ad: She is a Witch!

I cannot believe that the Republican candidate for the United States Senate from Delaware, in her first major advertisement, starts off with the immortal words "I AM NOT A WITCH." What??? Can you imagine her meeting with the Saudis? The legislature of Russia, Germany, France, or dare I say ... an African Dignitary? According to Palin, during the elections of 2008, Obama was not qualified to be President after only 2 years in the U.S. Senate, but she now believes that this "REFORMED" WITCH is fit for the United States Senate? The most respected deliberative governmental chamber on this great earth? Now friends, just check out the video below and tell me -- she is a WITCH!!!

President Ronald Reagan on immigration: I Believe in Amnesty!

With all the anti-immigration rhetoric coming from conservatives and the Tea Party, perhaps Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and Rush Limbaugh can take some advice from their hero Ronald "The Gipper" Reagan. President Reagan in all his wisdom, knew that immigration reform must be comprehensive. That means Amnesty for those here, border security, and enforcement of laws against employers who hire undocumented workers. Listen to that "Liberal" icon of the conservative movement as he breaks it down!

Meg Whitman did not vote for 28 years -- now wants to be Governor

There is one truth about the Republican candidate for Governor of California -- that is that she does not know the TRUTH. Meg Whitman is a pathological liar. She ducks the facts, them plays blame and contrition, then turns to political talking points -- like a preacher -- "we should all vote" or telling the rest of that those who hire illegal workers should be held accountable -- except her! Listen to her and see how long it takes before you start pulling out your hair out of frustration with the would-be Gov!

Tea Party movement taking over the GOP

Mid-term elections that just weeks ago, were supposed to be dominated by the Republicans, have suddenly been tossed into a heated competition. Now that President Barrack Obama and Democrats have shown a willingness to do battle, the fact that the GOP voters has sprung on the general electorate, extremists, the party now faces the potential of embarrassing defeats. It's like handing Harry Reid and his party -- congressional seats on a platter -- YUM!

Liberals, Progressives rally at National Mall for Democrats

Taking a page from the recent Tea Party rally, progressive groups like unions and abortion rights activists came together in huge numbers to push for a their agenda and to send a message to the GOP and the Tea Party movement that there is two sides to the vision for this country. It is refreshing to have a real contest coming up this November!

CNN Anchor Rick Sanchez Ousted Over Bigot Comments

I liked Rick Sanchez, but he should know better than paint an entire group of people with the same brush. Jewish people have suffered tremendously in this world -- just like blacks and Latinos. We all need to learn to respect others - who are not like us!

Joy Behar: Christine O'Donnell Is Ignorant

The Republican candidate for United States Senator is ridiculed by the view ladies -- why should we take the GOP seriously when to put up these flakes when America is at a crucial time in her storied history. Let's get serious people!!!
