TBP--The good side of Gay Inc

Love it or hate it--just make sure you comment on it! My latest at the Bilerico Project!

The good side of Gay Inc:
"Say what you will about Gay Inc, I still send my dollars down to DC every year without fail. Should I be happy with the return on investment that I get out of my pet causes? Certainly not. logos.jpg

With the exception of Lambda Legal which has made some tremendous gains in the court system, the organizations I give most often to--HRC, The Task Force and Victory Fund--have struggled to bring about solid gains on the Federal Level. Besides the passage and signing of the Federal Hate Crimes bill, we've yet to see a sweeping piece of legislation that will improve the lives of LGBTQ folks around the nation--not just in the cosmopolitan super-leftie coastal states, but in the middle of Bumblehopsburgh Alabama.

Let me be clear that we should be vocal in demanding more action from our national organizations. Even if it is the way of things, never be content and complacent about the slow rate of progress. The only thing slowing progress is the conflicting agendas of people, and that can always be overcome.

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."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
