I make no bones about the fact that I’m a liberal Democrat. I also make no bones about the fact that Republicans are a big part of what’s wrong with this country right now. I don’t dislike Republicans simply because the are Republicans. I dislike, and disdain them as a political party, because they are wrong on almost ALL of the issues that are important to democracy and equality. Case in point: Senate Republicans yet again blocked a vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act that would help ensure women get the same pay for doing the same job as men.
So I think this will be my last official post on QL about Robin Williams. He’s been put to rest and with everything in me I hope he finds the peace that escaped him here. I missed the Emmys this year but I heard there was this tribute. I watched it and I decided I wanted to post it along with some of my final thoughts…
So here is definitely two of my all-time funny men. David Letterman talked about Robin Williams and paid tribute to the late comedian with a video montage of his 50 appearances on the show.
So I woke up this morning and I realized we hit a milestone here in Queer Landia land. We hit the 3,000 follower mark and it was a real treat to see this morning as I await my first cup of coffee. We are 5 months shy of hitting our 3 year anniversary and garnering 3,000 subscribers isn’t too shabby if I do say so myself.
The streets are closed and Pink Wednesday is under full swing. I’ve been coming to San Francisco Pride for 17 years and I never get tired of the energy and the excitement.
Methodist Pastor, Rev. Frank Schaefer, was given his ordination credentials back today after being stripped of them 6 months ago for performing a wedding for his gay son. After serving a 30 day suspension for performing the ceremony and then refusing to denounce the practice of marrying same-sex couples he was bounced from the denomination and stripped of his ministry rights in the church. That was remedied and made right today.
