The prayer also included blessings for gay citizens.

There was very clearly a conscious effort to emphasize LGBT rights and to promote inclusion and acceptance at this inuaguration. I find this fascinating and promising.


So do I. 

It is certainly not acceptable to discriminate against any ethnic group.  So, why is it "okay" to do this towards a person's sexual orientation?

Well, let's see what happens in the race to replace John Kerry now that former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown has announced he will run for Kerry's seat.

Congratulations Senator Markey! (D-MA)

There is no medical condition suffered during childbirth where murdering the child within the womb saves the mother's life.If possible the baby can be delivered and  all effort should be made to save both lives.

President Obama’s remarks on November 21, 2011…

Now, the question right now is whether we can reduce the deficit in a way that helps the economy grow, that operates with a scalpel, not with a hatchet, and if not, whether Congress is willing to stick to the painful deal that we made in August for the automatic cuts.  Already, some in Congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts.  My message to them is simple:  No.  I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending.  There will be no easy off ramps on this one.

BTW, who came up with the idea of sequestration?  (Hint: Obama's nominee for Treasury Secretary)

Oh hey, BGAB is back! And he's trying to make us all forget who is responsible for passing bills again! And trying to pretend that opposing one alternative and supporting another means opposing all alternatives! And hoping we don't actually follow his link and realise that the very line after the one he quoted totally disproves his point!

Aww, it's just like old times! :D

Oh dear.

76% of Americans agree with the President's position on the deficit (Cuts + Revenue) versus 19% agreeing with the GOP position of no revenues ever.

The President's approval rating is more than twice that of the GOP leadership.

71% of Americans support the President's position of raising the minimum wage, including 50% of Republicans.

72% of Americans support a path to citizenship being part of immigration reform in some way.

71% of Americans say passing gun reform legislation should be a priority; 83% support universal background checks.

...And so on and so on. It is quite the conundrum for the GOP when their position manages to attract approximately 30% of the American people on every single issue.

Well you are both off, Both the congress and Obama came up with sequestration. It was a compromise idea, the congress passed it and Obama signed it.
