Media Makes Obama First President of Everything
This humorous story looks at how the mainstream media has dubbed Barack Obama the first female, Jewish, Asian, and now gay president in the way it has lauded hosannas upon the first true social reconstructionist to ever call the White House his home.
Double Down: Obama Urges Repeal of DOMA
Sinking in the polls and dividing his own base over the issue of so-called homosexual marriage, President Obama has determined to double-down for 5% of the population asking for something not even the most depraved and pagan cultures in human history have ever done. He’s effectively been steadily repealing as it is because his administration won’t defend it, but now President Obama is openly calling for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act signed into law by President Clinton, which passed the House 342-67 and the Senate 85-14.
Colorado Says No to Civil Unions
The month of May continues to be a bad for those pushing the homosexual agenda. A last-ditch effort by Colorado’s governor to give homosexuals rights similar to married couples in the state has failed. Republicans on Monday rejected civil unions legislation during a special session that Gov. John Hickenlooper called to tackle the issue and others killed last week by a GOP filibuster. Civil unions would let partners make medical decisions for each other and enhance their parental and inheritance rights. The bill had enough support to clear the House during the regular session and get to the Democratic governor’s desk. But Republicans refused to bring it up for a vote before a key deadline.
