treat all people equally and legislate and lobby against all forms of discrimination.
What Gives Me Hope
organizations such as this one, the 60s generation that still hasn't forgotten Southern discrimination and Vietnam.
Political Activism today. GLBT getting onto the ballot in states where "gay" is still a word from a '40s" musical.
The ongoing fight to take the congress away from the Republicans and conservatism and hope that a strong Democrat will emerge who endorses stem-cell research, health insurance parity for all, immediate withdrawal from Iraq, Gay marriage, and the recognition of orphan diseases and just as important as solving the mysteries of more commond illnesses.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
open a legalized red light district...puts some of scum out of business, and let's the rightist scum eat crow!
What/who changed my life and why
To Kill A Mockingbird..., we don't presume guilt in this nation. WE are innocent until proven guilty! Isn't that what our forefathers dictated?
I hear it was charged against me that I sought to destroy institutions,
But really I am neither for nor against institutions,
(What indeed have I in common with them? or what with the destruction of them?)
Only I will establish in the Manahatta and in every city of these States inland and seaboard,
And in the fields and woods, and above every keel little or large that dents the water,
Without edifices or rules or trustees or any arguments,
The institution of the dear love of comrades.--Walt Whitman
