    hrc, and some other organizations, are more important as living pieces of lgbt history, than as current political organizations.

      Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

      Nearly a million dollars in Campaign Donations for Politicians while bigoted Propositions passed in CA, AZ, AR, and FL?

      •  I think you're mistaking DM's point (0+ / 0-)

        By f'ing up so much in the last several years, HRC has rendered itself less than useless.  It was only relevant years ago, hence DM's statement that its relevance is solely historical.  S/he was not giving them a pass on their current uselessness.

        Unless I'm misunderstanding you?

        We are not exempt from history.

          18 million dollar headquarters?  What the hell do they need that for?

          Why were they donating a million bucks to "sort of kind friendly politicians" while these propositions passed?

          Some screwed up financial priorities.

          •  No, I think we're all on the same page here. (0+ / 0-)

            I'm obviously not making my point very effectively.  HRC was respectable long ago, but that ended sometime during the Tim McFeely (corporate to his underpants) period.

            I also wanted to mention Steve Endean as an example of the people who were there when it WAS respectable.

            I'm all for bashing HRC, their fecklessness, their lack of ovaries/balls when it comes to a fight, and their empire-building BS, including their office building.

            Are you guys teasing me?  Cause I'm the sensitive type and I might cry right here and now if anybody thinks I'm defending HRC.  I saw the rot first hand.
