    The following is an open letter to United States President Barack Obama from various Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and transgender (LGBT) groups in the US, first published online on April 3.

    President Barack Obama,

    1600 Pennsylvania Ave, N.W.

    Washington, DC 20500

    Dear President Obama:

    The undersigned United States organisations work in various capacities to address violence and discrimination against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community around the world and are part of a global movement working for equality and human rights. We are writing to ask that you underscore your long-standing commitment to the rights of LGBT people by raising concerns regarding the violation of the human rights of the LGBT community when you travel to Jamaica for meetings with Caribbean Community (CARICOM) leaders. In your discussions with leaders from Jamaica and from across the Caribbean, you should highlight the importance of supporting and recognising the meaningful contributions from members of civil society in combating this and other human-rights challenges. During your stay in Jamaica, we also urge you to meet with members of civil society, including representatives of the LGBT community.

    God, you're such an old right-wing fart. I hope he does and wouldn't be surprised if he did, but he's done so much for us in the last six years that even if he for his own reasons does not carry our flag in Jamaica, I'll give him a pass. All you Repukes do is try to pass laws to strike and hurt us. Your false arguments of any equivalence is repulsive. No one buys it but you and your fellow FOX zombies.

    Lie much?

    All I did was make an informed statement about the chances of a US president criticizing anything about a nation that is about to play host to him in a visit.

    And your psychotic ass had to over react and start throwing up all sorts of shit, most of which has no basis in reality.

    You never will own your smear sarcasm. It's where you live. Your point was just more of your reflexive nastiness. Both Obama and Hillary routinely bring up both the gay and women issues in countries that have repressive policies. All your party does is export repression of gays if not women.

    Now you are really showing how Ducking Fumb you are. I'm not in a political party, do not support any fucking political party and sneer at fumb duckers like yourself who walk around with a brown nose from sticking your nose up a political party's ass rather than thinking for yourself.

    As far as smearing anyone... you better watch out with your accusations of that and liberal practice of it if you want to keep on living within your delusion of not being a hypocrite.

    Oh, please. What bullshit. You're to the right of Ted Cruz. This crazy denial is just more of the Repuke tactic of claiming victim anytime they're called out on their unprecedented ugliness towards Obama, gays, immigrants, Hispanics, Hillary, the poor, on and on. I'm sick of the lack of any sense of decorum. Sure, you're a victim. Like the religious crazies are victims because they don't get to discriminate.

    There you go again showing what a Fumb Ducker you are... You do realize there's no trophy for 1st place in this don't you?

    You said: "You're to the right of Ted Cruz. "
    You don't a clue what I am to the left or right of. All you know is how to make accusations.

    You said: "I'm sick of the lack of any sense of decorum."
    Funny you'd even mention "decorum"... after the shit bucket of baseless attacks you started throwing at me for an innocuous comment.

    I don't know what your problem is but you might need to get your menopausal whoremoan replacement therapy drugs tweeked to get you back on balance.

    lol You jump in with typical Right Wing crazy YOU LIE! disrespect in very thread. Your arguments are always the same. Obama or Hillary or whoever is the FOX evil-doer of the day has done some terrible thing because some Repuke has "alleged" it. Or maybe you just make some nasty comment about Obama or Hillary unrelated to the topic just to be ugly. SouthBeach is just as bad but at least he's getting paid to place the crazy under misleading headlines. I'm surprised you haven't resorted to your usual large font and red letters. Crazy right wing fart.

    Okay Fumb Ducker Go find where I have said anything against your beloved Hillary or Barry based on something some "Repuke" has alleged.

    Get your lame lying Fumb Ducker ass busy finding examples of me making some nasty comment about Obama or Hillary unrelated to the topic just to be ugly.

    You are incapable of doing anything but imitating the nasty fat as lying queen of RJ whose become famous for her regal incapacity to attach her bullshit to facts. Are you trying to unseat her with your imitation? Boy that sure will piss off the nasty fat ass lying queen.

    Here comes the big font. Next... RED LETTERS!!! Oh no! lol. Listen, old right wing fart, you can play silly stupid with others but I'm not playing your victim game with you. Everyone on this site except maybe your other goofballs like SD whatever knows that your rants are just more TEA BAGGER bullshit. I'm just sick and tired of you interjecting your ugly into every thread. How about starting with this one. No reason for your ugly comment to the OP other than that is just who you are and like all you other right winger crazies, you feel the need to puke it up all over everything and everyone. You could have said "I'll sign" or "I hope it works" or anything but instead, you take a swipe at Obama. Go back to your precious bubble world where you people think you make sense. You're nuts. And ugly.

    I'm sooooo hurt. I only live for the approval of arrogants Fumb Duckers who can't back up anything they say.... People like you know nothing other than making up shit about people trying to smear them... Only trouble is everyone is either wise to you and the others like you.. or they just don't care what you say anymore.

    Get your lazy lying Fumb Ducker butt busy trying to find anything I have ever said that would give you the impression I support the Tea Party in any way, shape or form.

    What can you expect from a gay closeted man like Destinharbor who USED a woman to cover up his homosexuality living a FAKE heterosexual life andnow that he is an OLD FART ASS dumping his crazy bipolar ex wife for a young asian man advocates for gay and women rights. Art_Deco ia not the only HYPOCRITE liberal democrat here
    And it gets worse because apparently good ol Destinharbor is now a blind sycophant of the hapless Hillary ho. Anyone who wants to vote for that self aggrandizement seeking, power hungry whore for president definitely needs to be locked up in a psychiatric ward for all of 2016 and not released until January 31, 2017 after a thorough psychiatric evaluation.

    Crazy..... Ya know, I'm starting to find it curious how excited so many of you crazies get about Hillary. Ok. Middle class Girl gets into Ivy college, marries a Rhoads Scholar, supports him in his political career, designs a really interesting private sector universal healthcare plan, endures unending scumbag investigations by the Repukes who can't find anything but a blowjob, wins NY Senate seat and gets rave reviews for bipartisanship, accepts Sec of State, listens to Repukes accuse her of killing a friend, chooses to not comment when cleared, and runs to be the first woman President.

    The level of crazy blasted at her by you bubble uglies is off the charts. I've got some issues with her but basically respect her. You are insane.

    Oh, and as to my ex-wife, she and her new husband and I and my guy will be sharing a B&B for the upcoming wedding of our oldest son, a Wharton MBA who is marrying a great girl heading to vet school next year (she's a Democrat).

    I'm fine with my life. Sorry yours turned out so badly that you'd be so deranged and ugly. And I know your attack on my family exposes you as the truly disgusting, miserable, alone, unloved person that you are. I about laughed out loud when I read your profile. You're one of those "no fats, no fems" no this no that rude, stupid, bitter old farts unable to understand why no one can stand to be around you.

    Want to hear about my partner you slandered? He was valedictorian of his school, got a prestigious scholarship to a very good school that not only covered all expenses but paid for him to travel the world every summer. Then he got his Masters (where we met, 15 years after my divorce), and now is a successful film maker doing international film work. You, however, live in Buffalo and ride your bike alone. How pathetic.

    As you may have read above, a psychotic liberal jumped all over me for being skeptical that his beloved Obama would address the treatment of gays while in Jamaica.

    So far all he's planned to talk about is energy and "good will" That's political code for "bullshit." Please stay tuned to for updates on Obama in Jamaica.

    PaulDee, my good friend, look what happened, and the rest of you, here:

    http://www.hrc.org/blog/entry/hrc-commends-president-obama-for-meeting-with-caribbean-lgbt-advocates

    "Earlier today, President Obama met with LGBT advocates in Jamaica, a country that still criminalizes same-sex relationships. Following the meeting, US National Security Advisor Susan Rice tweeted, “Anti-LGBT discrimination and violence is unacceptable everywhere. This is US policy globally, as we discussed here in Jamaica today.”

    ...and before the usual people start clanging their trash can lids that Obama is visiting/doing deals with countries that do terrible things to gays, he can only influence by opinion, and his weight of office. Diplomatic chess.

    I was hoping for the same thing. I'm glad that major LGBT organizations expressed their concern.

    You can't possibly be this stupid. ...mind you I could be wrong. Stop and think; perhaps those meninlove guys have relatives in the US. Maybe they have friends they care about very much in the US.

    ..is there any more thinking you require me to do for you?

    I'm really sorry Pablo, but you're getting from me a much milder version of the shit you dump on people, us included. One second you're all over us nice, the next you're jabbing at us with your nasty little tongue. Kindly make up your mind.

    There's more Destinharbour! This like a Valentine's Day gift to Paul Dee, and some of my relatives there.

    'Obama during his speech noted that Jackson founded Quality of Citizenship Jamaica after she and a friend were kidnapped, held at gunpoint and sexually assaulted.

    “As a woman and as a lesbian, justice and society weren’t always on her side,” said the president. “But instead of remaining silent she chose to speak out and started her own organization to advocate for women like her, get them treatment and get them justice and push back against stereotypes and give them some sense of their own power. And she became a global activist.”

    “More than anything she cares about her Jamaica and making it a place where everybody, no matter their color or their class or their sexual orientation can live in equality and opportunity,” added Obama as members of the audience that included Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt and Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All-Sexuals and Gays Executive Director Dane Lewis applauded.

    “That’s the power of one person and what they can do.” Obama made another reference to gay rights to the audience that primarily consisted of young people before introducing Jackson. “You’re more eager for progress that comes not by holding down any segment of society, but by holding up the rights of every human being, regardless of what we look like or how we pray or who we love,” he said. - See more at: http://www.washingtonblade.com/2015/04/10/obama-applauds-lgbt-advocate-during-jamaica-speech/#sthash.J97NSLeV.dpuf
