Who is Bob Glodowski?

Do any of you know him? His letters always make me smile. Thanks Bob!

From the paper today:

Tea Party attackers need to examine Dems

Radical, Washington ideologues are, by their own policies, shifting politics back to common-sense, free-market wisdoms except for socialistic numbskulls who label all Tea Partiers shotgun rubes draped in festering provincialism. Even Mike Castle’s non-endorsement and envy of Christine O’Connell didn’t turn out to be the left press corps and Democrats serendipitous relief anticipated.
Many American’s perceived the aura around the Obamas as the second coming of John and Jackie Kennedy and were suckered by Obama’s pre-inaugural centrist campaign facade. Mob-style, socialistic minions and their grand larceny of free-market prosperity and job growth soon followed with a corrupt agenda.
If U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel ethics violator can pull off a primary with party praise while covered in flaunting corruption, then O’Connell should be Christopher Dodd’s and Barney Frank’s foreclosure poster child. Rangel didn’t win wearing a Black Panthers costume outside a polling station; it was simply malfeasant exemption by a bootlicking constituency.

If you’re a Tea Partier or now disapprove of Obama’s whacky policies, you’re racist, but you can actually violate the Voting Rights Act of 1965 as a Black Panther and unbelievably have the backing of the Department of Justice and Eric Holder. House Financial Services Rep. Frank commended Obama’s recent SEC protection by incapacitating FOIA, but Democrats were quick to welcome Wiki-leaks liberal Julian Assanges’s leftwing, information release as if they uncovered a couple of unpaid GOP parking tickets.
Besides Washington’s dirty deals, Obama’s cabinet corruptors includes Kathleen Sebelius who didn’t report accurate contribution figures from murdered abortion doctor George Tiller. Ron Kirk owed $10,000 in back taxes. The EPA’s Lisa Jackson was connected in the New Jersey DEP kickback scheme. It goes on and on.
The November countdown nears, and the donkey incumbents are running aimlessly.

Please read this Ginny. Then read it again.

From the latest advice column by Dan Savage at Savage Love:

I just read about a gay teenager in Indiana—Billy Lucas—who killed himself after being taunted by his classmates. Now his Facebook memorial page is being defaced by people posting homophobic comments. It's just heartbreaking and sickening. What the hell can we do?

Gay Bullying Victim Who Survived

Another gay teenager in another small town has killed himself—hope you're pleased with yourselves, Tony Perkins and all the other "Christians" out there who oppose anti-bullying programs (and give actual Christians a bad name).

Billy Lucas was just 15 when he hanged himself in a barn on his grandmother's property. He reportedly endured intense bullying at the hands of his classmates—classmates who called him a fag and told him to kill himself. His mother found his body.

Nine out of 10 gay teenagers experience bullying and harassment at school, and gay teens are four times likelier to attempt suicide. Many LGBT kids who do kill themselves live in rural areas, exurbs, and suburban areas, places with no gay organizations or services for queer kids.

"My heart breaks for the pain and torment you went through, Billy Lucas," a reader wrote after I posted about Billy Lucas to my blog. "I wish I could have told you that things get better."

I had the same reaction: I wish I could have talked to this kid for five minutes. I wish I could have told Billy that it gets better. I wish I could have told him that, however bad things were, however isolated and alone he was, it gets better.

But gay adults aren't allowed to talk to these kids. Schools and churches don't bring us in to talk to teenagers who are being bullied. Many of these kids have homophobic parents who believe that they can prevent their gay children from growing up to be gay—or from ever coming out—by depriving them of information, resources, and positive role models.

Why are we waiting for permission to talk to these kids? We have the ability to talk directly to them right now. We don't have to wait for permission to let them know that it gets better. We can reach these kids.

So here's what you can do, GBVWS: Make a video. Tell them it gets better.

I've launched a channel on YouTube—www ­—to host these videos. My normally camera-shy husband and I already posted one. We both went to Christian schools and we were both bullied—he had it a lot worse than I did—and we are living proof that it gets better. We don't dwell too much on the past. Instead, we talk mostly about all the meaningful things in our lives now—our families, our friends (gay and straight), the places we've gone and things we've experienced—that we would've missed out on if we'd killed ourselves then.

"You gotta give 'em hope," Harvey Milk said.

Today we have the power to give these kids hope. We have the tools to reach out to them and tell our stories and let them know that it does get better. Online support groups are great, GLSEN does amazing work, the Trevor Project is invaluable. But many LGBT youth can't picture what their lives might be like as openly gay adults. They can't imagine a future for themselves. So let's show them what our lives are like, let's show them what the future may hold in store for them.

The video my husband and I made is up now—all by itself. I'd like to add submissions from other gay and lesbian adults—singles and couples, with kids or without, established in careers or just starting out, urban and rural, of all races and religious backgrounds. (Go to to find instructions for submitting your video.) If you're gay or lesbian or bi or trans and you've ever read about a kid like Billy Lucas and thought, "Fuck, I wish I could've told him that it gets better," this is your chance. We can't help Billy, but there are lots of other Billys out there—other despairing LGBT kids who are being bullied and harassed, kids who don't think they have a future—and we can help them.

They need to know that it gets better. Submit a video. Give them hope.

An open letter to Dan Kleinman

Dear Dan,

What is the status of hackergate?

If you don't bring your guns to Starbucks the terrorists win.

Ugh. Nothing typifies the fear in West Bend more than the idea that you need to carry a gun around for your own personal "protection". I'm not a gun owner, but I have shot guns. Lots of them. Somewhat frequently. The idea however, that ANYPLACE in Wisconsin is so crime-riddled that you must carry your gun on you for fear of little Hannah growing up without a daddy is just fucking nuts. I assume these are the same people who had a well stocked Y2K bunker.

And by the way, if Ginny is really worried about masturbation in public she really oughtta stop this event.

Details here at Boots and Sabers.

We MUST stop all the people masturbating in the library!!

Sorry all - I've been traveling a bit and have tried my best to stay away from the internet and cell reception.

Some of you have seen Ginny's post about the PORN in the library and the problem of guys playing with themselves at the WB library. She actually allowed a few comments - read them here.

Truth be told, I just don't know what to say about this anymore. Why does she invent things to be afraid of?

Ginny is also afraid of Muslims?

1.6 billion Muslims inhabit the planet, but apparently the 19 of them who took part in 9/11 speak for all of them. Good thing not all Christians are tainted because of the actions of a few...
