    Obama Won't Push Equal Rights Law in the Right Direction





    [QUOTE]When the political climate demands, the Executive is often willing to push the edges of legal behavior in order to achieve a political end.

    But when it comes to gay rights, Obama doesn't want to breathe on the boundaries of the law, let alone give them the shove they need.

    Would it not be easier, and simpler to just move to Canada, I mean it's just over the Border, than expect an entire Nation to change to suit your wants? Other people live there to, and the majority rules.

    But it's to late to complain about Obama, certainly if you voted for him, because there you got what you wanted.

    Well if Universal heath care comes in, America will go bankrupt, then you can declare yourself a third world Country, and the UN can come in as administrators and run you. It's another option.

    Sorry dude - if you want Canada, which is in and of itself a beautiful country, then move there. America might not be perfect, but it is a place I am very proud of each and every day of my life.

    Our country is not the government (thank God). The pride in this country and the greatness of it is the people who work hard every day to make it a better place. No, we're not perfect - we never have been and we never will be, nor should we aspire to be. We have a hell of a lot more to be proud of and thankful for than we do to bitch and moan about.

    A lot easier, but who wants that climate? We want our cake and eat it, too.

    For the OP call the USA barbaric is just nasty. It's hardly fair to make such a sweeping generalization about a nation and its people. Canada has its problems and if you lived there you'd find that the grass isn't necessarily greener.

    This can be said for a lot of Western countries, hell even some Eastern.

    Being proud to be an American is great but don't be ignorant.

    I will thank God if I so choose - you thank who or whatever you will.

    I am not from any other country than the United States and am far from ignorant. I realize other countries have the very same things to be proud of as we do. I am not a resident of those countries, I am of the United States. I was merely pointing out why I am proud and thankful to be an American.

    Do not expect me, in the name of inclusiveness and political correctness to mute my pride in this country by recognizing others for the same thing.

    The truth be told - it's because of others who come here from everywhere on Earth that we have what we do. Thankfully we have such a place that they want to come and that they are free to contribute. Dreams come true every day in the United States thanks to the vision and sacrifice of such people who choose to be Americans.

    Uhhhhh nah I love America the way it is. It's faaaaaar from perfect but it's def not Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Gaza, Libya, Somalia... When I look down from my star spangled tower at all these messed up countries it really helps put in perspective how fuckn awesome it is here in America. Seriously if you think America is barbaric how do you feel about countries who are governed by Sharia. I'll keep my barbaric: Iphone, Starbucks, Peopleofwalmart.com, and Wendy Williams. Homie, if you try to take them from me I'll liberate your equal rights junk with my barbaric size 14 Nike made in China. Ciao gringo!

    The price for this universal health care does come at a high cost and everyone who does not have any heatlh care is going to be forced to buy into it whether they want it or not and whether they can afford it or not. No one is going to be allowed to opt out of it if they have no health insurance coverage. And those who do have health insurance coverage are going to be taxed on the benefit. So everyone's take home pay is going to be smaller. And this is reform? icon_sad.gif

    what happened to the decision/move several months ago to extend same-sex partners equal benefits in at least the State Department (as I recall - can't find the link or reference right this moment)? That would violate DOMA too, on the surface at least....Th State Deparment is also part of the Administration/Executive Branch, and would seemingly be bound/limited by the same DOMA restrictions applying to other federal government agencies at this time. Maybe that was only for foreign service assignments? (Does DOMA apply only to the United States states/territories/possession?).

    America, in spite of all of it's problem, is still a great country to live in. You don't see anyone wanting to leave, do you? But, there are all kinds of people who are praying and hoping to be granted their citizenship here because where they are is like hell.

    You said it very well. No one has the right to forbid anyone to thank God, if we choose to do so. And I , too, am proud to be a citizen of the United States. If there's anyone who does not want to be a citizen of the United States, there is no one chaining you here and you are free to leave..
