Kind of an interesting take on the "religious liberty" executive order:

Trump’s Religious Liberty Executive Order Is a Triumph of Fake News


The Christian Right invented a non-existent problem, persecution by the government, and the president obliged them.

[Daily Beast]

The order does not allow greater discrimination against LGBT people by those with a religious excuse. That absence speaks volumes, and may well portend a significant transformation in LGBT equality.


But what the order does do is solves two problems that simply do not exist.

Nobody should feel so isolated

Oh, I forgot to mention, Mr. Yeong-jin from the video below wrote a book/memoir entitled A Mark of Red Honor.  Apparently it's in the process of being translated to English at this time.  I can't find any information about publishing or a release date, but it's definitely something to look for.

It's hard to even imagine the severity of information suppression which occurs in North Korea, as mentioned in this video.

The thing is, Melania blew it with that comment she made about Obama's birth certificate.  She could have stayed away from that and been semi-okay, at least.  But NOOOOOOO!  She had to be a big shot, didn't she? / She had to open up her mouth!

Love that, Bertold!  It's interesting that when Republicans are on the short end of the stick they lash out with boorish behavior and cheating tactics to get back what they've lost.  But when Progressives are behind the eight-ball they organize, rally, and come to the rescue of those who are being hurt.  It really says a lot about the difference of mindset between those who have no shred of empathy and those who do.

Dan Savage Raises $100,000 With ‘Impeach The Mother F*cker Already’ Swag
And he isn’t planning to stop there.


By Curtis M. Wong

[Huffpost]

Dan Savage is using his disdain for President Donald Trump for great causes.

The LGBTQ rights activist and author announced April 18 that he’d raised $100,000 for three organizations that are in direct opposition to Trump policies through the sale of ITMFA, or “Impeach The Mother F*cker Already,” merchandise.

Carl, thanks for posting that interesting discussion.  I think most people usually assume that there is are baseline sexual mores that we loosened up in recent memory, rather than the idea that sexual puritanism was imposed later.  The same is true for hyper christianity.  The USA was not always the superchristian place that we imagine.

Thanks for that interview Carl.

Chicago Scholar Tackles ‘Sex and the Constitution’

Here's an interesting interview with author Geoffrey Stone, professor of law at the University of Chicago, about the fascinating history of sex, abortion, obscenity, and sexual attitudes from Greece, through the founding of the United States, to our current environment.  

(Of course the moral of the story is:  religion has always managed to fuck up everything.)
