Ted, > You've got to love an intelligent, competent, accomplished, attractive FLOTUS.........major improvement over that mouse that was GW's wife.

I too like Michelle Obama, but your criticism of Laura Bush is beyond stupid.

You really need to give up politics. It's making you insane.

" In other words, she is a homosexual, so she is going to exploit her position of power to stick it to anyone who isn’t,"


she's just flipping the status quo in Texas to make this point:


" In other words, he's is a heterosexual, so he is going to exploit his position of power to stick it to anyone who isn’t,"

The law doesn't matter to liberals. Just the power to act out retribution fantasies.

US troops now in 4 African countries to fight LRA

By JASON STRAZIUSO
Associated Press


NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) -- U.S. troops helping in the fight against a brutal rebel group called the Lord's Resistance Army are now deployed in four Central African countries, the top U.S. special operations commander for Africa said Wednesday.

The U.S. announced in October it was sending about 100 U.S. troops - mostly special operations forces - to Central Africa to advise in the fight against the LRA and its leader Joseph Kony, a bush fighter wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.

Rear Adm. Brian L. Losey, the top U.S. special operations commander for Africa, said the U.S. troops are now stationed in bases in Uganda, Congo, South Sudan and Central African Republic.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Re-elect me and I’ll put a windmill in every backyard and a union-made electric car in every driveway. I’ll have anybody smoking a cigarette in the vicinity of a child arrested. I’ll guarantee 13 year-old girls 24-hour access to free abortions up till the moment of birth without parental consent. Under my administration we’ll have the first transgender space station and unless you’re a criminal, I’ll make sure it’s impossible to own a gun.

Don't ya wish he would say that?

California Asks Judges: Gay or Straight?

10:36 AM, Feb 24, 2012 • By DANIEL HALPER

In order to make sure gays and lesbians are adequately represented on the judicial bench, the state of California is requiring all judges and justices to reveal their sexual orientation. The announcement was made in an internal memo sent to all California judges and justices.


“[The Administrative Office of the Courts] is contacting all judges and justices to gather data on race/ethnicity, gender identification, and sexual orientation,” reads an email sent by Romunda Price of the Administrative Office of the Courts. A copy of Price’s memo was obtained by THE WEEKLY STANDARD.

“Providing complete and accurate aggregate demographic data is crucial to garnering continuing legislative support for securing critically needed judgeships,” Price writes.

The process of self-revealing one’s sexual orientation is an element of a now yearly process. “To ensure that the AOC reports accurate data and to avoid the need to ask all judges to provide this information on an annual basis, the questionnaire asks that names be provided. The AOC, however, will release only aggregate statistical information, by jurisdiction, as required by the Government Code and will not identify any specific justice or judge.”

Philip R. Carrizosa of the executive office of communications at the Judicial Council of California, the Administrative Office of the Courts, confirmed the authenticity of Price’s email regarding gender identification and sexual orientation to THE WEEKLY STANDARD.


“Yes, the e-mail is authentic and accurate,” Carrizosa confirmed in an email. “The original bill, which simply provided for 50 new judgeships, was amended in the Assembly in August 2006, to address concerns that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was not appointing enough women and minorities to the bench. In 2011, Senator Ellen Corbett expanded the reporting requirement to include gender identification and sexual orientation.”

California state senator Corbett, the Democratic majority leader from the San Francisco suburb San Leandro, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Price’s email also reveals that the Administration Office of the Courts (AOC) is asking for this personal information because of the new law. “For the past five years, the AOC has been required to collect and release aggregate demographic data relative to the ethnicity, race, and gender of justices and judges, by specific jurisdiction, on or before March 1 of each year. This requirement is associated with efforts to obtain new judgeships.”

But as a result of Corbett’s 2011 California bill, the office has “expanded the collection and release of aggregate demographic data to include gender identification and sexual orientation.” Therefore, Price explains, judges and justices must reveal their “sexual orientation,” in addition “to their race/ethnicity [and] gender identification.” Price parenthetically adds, “The AOC has gender data for all judges and justices.”

[ Note that they distinguish between sexual orientation and gender identification. Gender identification is not necessarily the same as actual gender. ]

The AOC asked all recipients of the email to “please complete an online questionnaire by Friday, February 17, 2012.” Price made herself available if justices or judges preferred to provide the required information over the phone.
