The state of marijuana legalization.
So I guess neither of the bills being considered in Maryland passed…
Second row, far right (Mikulski), and third row, fourth from left (Cardin) are Maryland’s senators.
Right. So. We need this. Go here to sign.
This petition is great and all, but Congress already passed a Re-authorization of VAWA including protections for Lesbians, Transwomen, and Native American women, and President Obama signed it into law on March 7, 2013 (note the date of the petition above)… http://www.cnn.com/2013/03/07/politics/obama-violence-against-women-act/
I mean, I still signed it, but it’s a moot point now, no?
I’m like, reeeaaaalll late on this, but cutting federal funding for PBS saves the US 12¢ for every $1000 we spend. At work the managers round up or down the amount we drivers owe at the end of our shift. On a Friday, after working all day, I might owe the restaurant around $300, but let’s say exactly $299.88. Or some other scenario where 12¢ gets round up to the nearest dollar. That’s inconsequential to me. That’s inconsequential to me if it’s 12¢ rounded to $20. But out of a thousand dollars? That’s just a joke. Cut spending? Sure. From a thing we give 0.012% of our budget to? Ridic.
They’d rather see America fail than Obama get reelected.
“I don’t know whether Barack Obama was born in the United States of America. But I do know this, that in his heart, he’s not an American. He’s just not an American.”–
Seriously, why don’t these guys just buy one of our mugs?
Because giving birth in Kenya and putting birth announcements in Hawaiian newspapers just in case he grows up to want to be president makes so much sense.

“Gay people are born into and belong to every society in the world. They are all ages, all races, all faiths. They are doctors and teachers, farmers and bankers, soldiers and athletes. And whether we know it, or whether we acknowledge it, they are our family, our friends, and our neighbors. Being gay is not a western invention. It is a human reality.”–
