Happy Pride Month from President Obama!

Happy Pride Month from President Obama!

June is LGBT Pride Month. In another show of solidarity with the LGBT community, President Obama released a recent video commemorating the history of LGBT activism in the United States. He also calls on his fellow Americans to honor openly gay servicemen and women, and applaud the courage of teachers and students who stand up against anti-gay bullying.

“Change happens because ordinary people, countless unsung heroes of our American story, stand up and demand it,” the President says. “The story of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans is no different.”

“Perfecting our union isn’t something we can do in just one month,” he adds. “But we can remember those who came before us, we can summon the courage to build on their legacy, and we can renew our commitment, day in and day out, to be the kind of people who make change happen.”

the elections are fed by and made up for the american public. If you don't like that you should protest about it and come up with other stuff. I personally find it a waist of time and money, especially now that US for the first time since my lifetime had an exceptional normal human being for president, accepted in more countries than ever instead of most faceless muppets before: they left him the rubbish that had to be cleaned up. Now give the man some space to proceed in progress. Looking at the choices left, you'd be sorry when he's out of the picture.
Life isn't about money but about relations that make any trade possible.

@ Kath N --- "...'' normal '' human beings ..."

If you are an example of a 'normal' human being, then the planet is in very deep bear scat! It is the socially and intellectually challenged individuals like yourself that create so much hatred, racism and bigotry in this world. The world would be a much better place without the drivel and tripe that you, and people like you, espouse.

President Obama has risked his election by supporting GLBT rights. I thank him very much for doing this. This is an act of courage in the face of bigotry and hate.

AB A it must be nice, sitting on the pedistal, judging the poor. Sure, there are some who abuse the system, I know people who do, but that doesn't mean that people should strave, go without health insurance, meaning they ignore health problems until they cant, or live in the streets. The poor is not why we are going broke as a country. It is morons like you, who are too blind and stupid to see that cutting taxes for the rich who send our jobs overseas is the problem. Until you are in us poor people's shoes, you need to shut up, Futhermore, what the hell does your little rant have to do with the article?

“This is preposterous! An emergency room physician told me that a woman in her late 20's came to the ER today with her 8th pregnancy.

She told the first doctor she saw: "My Mama told me that I am the breadwinner for the family." She said that she can make babies and babies get money from the State for the family. It goes like this:”

Oh please, that bullshit story is as real as the bullshit story the warmongers passed around about the little boy and the neighbors invading their property before the illegal bombing, invasion, occupation of Iraq.
hey AB A. An emergency room physician told me that you have a boil on your ass that whistles Dixie.

“No wonder our country is broke! Worse, the Muslims have been paying attention, and by mandating that each Muslim family have eleven children,”

You’re confusing Muslims’ with Catholics, and Mormons.
