President of Uganda Lies On CNN - Why Am I Not Surprised?

I usually reserve the term "lying sack of poop" for those special folks who can be so blatant in their lies that I have to wonder how they keep a straight face doing it.  Apparently in Uganda it is a way of life.  President Yoweri Museveni demonstrates just how big a sack of poop he is and does it on CNN.

Watch and be amazed!

Tony Perkins Wants Ban on Day of Silence

So the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins wants a ban on the Day of Silence protest, a day when students in many schools remain silent to draw attention to anti-gay bias and bullying.  Considering Perkins and his organization are recognized hate groups it is amazing they still get the press they do.

What if the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan made a similar statement about the observation of Black History Month.  Would the press even bother to mention it?  No they wouldn't and I can say that because the delightful folks at the KKK have made similar protests in the past and only get coverage if they show up in their lovely white outfits.

It's time the press stopped using its double standard of reporting every word groups against LGBT causes say, but ignoring other hate groups.  Let's press the press to start ignoring these yokels and get back to reporting real news.

Saudi Arabia Cracks Down on Gays and "Tom Boys"

The unenlightened kingdom of Saudi Arabia, whom our country considers a strong ally had enlisted the aid of its "Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice" to make the lives of LGBT people there more miserable.

In the words of the new service Sharq Arabic, "“Instructions have been issued to all public schools and universities to ban the entry of gays and tom boys and to intensify their efforts to fight this phenomenon, which has been promoted by some websites."

This is  the kind of pronouncement that signals open season on gay bashing in Saudi Arabia.  Of course that is not a far stretch since it is something that occurs regularly there, but this kind of official condemnation sanctions that abuse. 

It's time we told our "oil pusher" that we are kicking the habit.  We need clean energy independence not just for the good of the planet and our country, but to cut off the cash flow we pour into this barbaric country, propping up their monarchy and abusing their people.
