FOF--PHOTOS: Choi Chained Part Two: The Revenge!

My late breaking Feast of Fun post about the White House Protest today.

PHOTOS: Choi Chained Part Two: The Revenge!:
"In case you missed it, Lt. Dan Choi and Capt. Jim Pietrangelo are once again in jail this afternoon. Once again its for chaining themselves up to the White House Fence. However, this time, they had company.

Our GetEqual super-activists were joined at the fence by Petty Officer Larry Whitt, Petty Officer Autumn Sandeen, Cadet Mara Boyd, and Cpl. Evelyn Thomas–all handcuffed. That’s right, Autumn Sandeen, the super trans-activist of Pam’s House Blend fame. They were all removed and arrested, and according to a tweet from GetEqual’s Twitter account, they will be arraigned at 2 p.m. tomorrow.

One of the most shocking aspects of the story is that the mainstream media showed up to cover the protest from Layfayete Park, which faces the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, but the White House ordered the park closed, and the media were asked to leave."

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."


-HEY #p2! (Progressives).

We can't do this alone.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have been fighting for over half a Century to have basic Civil Rights. We have so much to do, and we are such a small group. Without an army of Progressive allies, we can't win. Our rights as American citizens are constantly being compromised, despite life-time service to our nation as good, contributing citizens. We can't wait any longer. We need our Progressive allies to step up and go to bat for us TODAY.

We must demand Progressives have got to make LGBT rights a top priority in 2010, or we will keep being put on the back-burner.

There will ALWAYS be something more important than LGBT equality affecting America--issues like Health Care Reform and the Economy effect LGBT people too! However, when we are discriminated against under the law every single day, we can't give our all to fixing these problems. We are long overdue to be counted as equal citizens. That&#…

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
