This blog does not give one pigs bottom that the president said the words, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and those words out of his mouth does not cause me to jump up and say, What a great speech. He loves us, he loves us, meanwhile it is misery from many many people, cops still kill young black women and men, the drones still fly, and this country still wages war, benefits have been cut to millions of people, our trans sisters are murdered all over the place. When are you going to free our class war prisoners, Mumi Abu-Jamal, Leonard Peltier, The Move Family, Albert Woodfox, Oscar Lopez Rivera, Jaan Laaman, Thomas Manning, Ed Poindexter, Wopashitwe Mondo Eyen we Langa, Hugo Pinell and others? When is this government going to stop the murder of religious minorities where the U.S wages war?  Yes we could go on and on and if anyone thinks all is well in this la la land created by those who rule then you must be as the article says, hypnotized. Now it is going to take more than mere words much more. This blog will never except the idea that it is okay now that we get ours and fuck everyone else.
