    "it's coming" if by "it" you mean full equal rights for LGBT people, at least not under the Obama administration. Look, I did my part to get him elected and for many things I'm still quite proud of him and the amazing things he has acomplished so far.......but.......he could IMMEDIATLY stop the purge of homosexual soldiers WITHOUT nullifying DADT. He could, but so far he hasn't, and I dont think he will.

    Sure, I could lie to myself that he's just letting the country, state by state, recognize the legality of marriage equality.....but.....funny thing is, in his "proclimation" regarding June as "Gay Pride Month", if you read that, you see NO WHERE does he mention repealing (the unconstitutional) DOMA. I may be a pot head but I do remember his (amazing) Open Letter to the LGBT Community back during the campaign. The one in which he PROMISED to get (the unconstitutional) DOMA repealed. My goodness, times sure does change a man >.-

    And what about those war criminals, Bush, Cheney, Rice, et al? I want to know, is this a nation of laws or not? Do the laws apply to all, equally, or not? If not, then whats the fucking point? Bush, Cheney, Rice, Yoo, Gonzales, all of them, ALL OF THEM are criminals! OK, ok, innocent until PROVEN guilty, fine, LETS FUCKING get the process STARTED and see if the case can be PROVEN. Perhaps Mr Obama would rather the EU do it instead? Thats just fucking peachy.

    I gave the Obama campaign MY MONEY and MY TIME because I BELIEVED he was going to CHANGE this shit. I bleieved he had a damn backbone. Does anyone here honestly think DOMA or DADT will be fought and defeated after 2010? 2010, when the Rethugs most likely will retake the congress. Shit, Obama is even just fine with MOUNTAIN TOP REMOVAL. For fucks sake. One last thing, anyone who thinks Satamayor would NOT repeal Roe v Wade is delusional.

    Peace thru hemp / hemp for life!
