The desperate, outnumbered neo-Confederacy continues its fantasy of rising again - Shadowproof

The desperate, outnumbered neo-Confederacy continues its fantasy of rising again - Shadowproof

CommunityPam's House BlendThere is an interesting piece up at Salon by Andrew O’Hehir, “Welcome to the new Civil War,” where he discusses the neo-Confederacy elements in our culture that are trying to turn back the clock on women, gays, God and guns, drawing parallels to the Lincoln administration (through the eyes of the film “Lincoln”).We’ve just emerged from a presidential campaign that exposed how hardened our political and cultural divide has become, and how poorly the two sides understand each other. Part of the Republican problem, in an election that party thought it would win...

‘One Million Moms’ Abandoning Failed Ellen DeGeneres Protest - Shadowproof

‘One Million Moms’ Abandoning Failed Ellen DeGeneres Protest - Shadowproof

CommunityFDL Main BlogThe religious right group One Million Moms is obviously not a glutton for embarrassment. Unlike so many other religious right groups, after it makes a public fool of itself, it knows that it’s time to pull back:The conservative group One Million Moms says it is “moving on” from its recent protest of Ellen DeGeneres and J.C. Penney.One Million Moms (OMM), a media watchdog group founded by anti-gay, conservative Christian group American Family Association, spoke with The Christian Post about its ongoing protest of “strong gay activist” DeGeneres as a J.C. Penney...

CommunityPam's House BlendOn June 29, 1964, the FBI began distributing these pictures of civil rights workers, from left, Michael Schwerner, 24, of New York, James Chaney, 21, from Mississippi, and Andrew Goodman, 20, of New York, who disappeared near Philadelphia, Miss., June 21, 1964.

More work going on around the house - Shadowproof

More work going on around the house - Shadowproof

CommunityPam's House BlendThe guys are back, putting in the hardwoods. What an ordeal this is. Kate and I are dead tired, because we’ve been up all night painting. Another long story, but since we had the delay on Friday, the house is torn up. We decided to paint, since all the furniture is out of the office and bedroom. It took forever. Anyway, I’m going to get some breakfast and read some news. I haven’t had the TV on since Friday; I don’t know what the hell is going on in the world!UPDATE (12;45): OK. The home improvement store had to deliver the correct wood late Friday, but the f*ckers...

Log Cabin Republicans defend McCain on anti-gay robocalls - Shadowproof

Log Cabin Republicans defend McCain on anti-gay robocalls - Shadowproof

CommunityPam's House BlendOh my. There’s a really poorly-thought-out post on the Log Cabinette blog defending John McCain’s use of an anti-gay robocall in Florida chastising Mitt Romney for wavering on social issues. First, let’s take a look at that call again, which was first reported on The Politico, hardly a lefty site.“I’m calling with an urgent Mitt Romeny [unintelligible]”“We care deeply about traditional values and protecting families. And we need someone who will not waver in the White House: Ending abortion, preserving the sanctity of marriage, stopping the trash on the airwaves...

DC: countdown to marriage equality on March 3 - Shadowproof

CommunityPam's House BlendCarpetbagging fundie Bishop Harry Jackson and the forces of the National Organization for Marriage tried to stop it, but it looks like all paths are clear for couples to apply for marriage licenses this Wednesday. DCist.com has a primer on the straightforward process.Here’s how it’ll work:Also, there is a gender-neutral application available from the court. Couples will need to bring ID (you have to be 18 or older or 16 with consent from parents) in the form of a driver’s license, birth certificates or a passport.

VA-01: Krystal Ball takes to the media and wants to break The Next Glass Ceiling - Shadowproof

VA-01: Krystal Ball takes to the media and wants to break The Next Glass Ceiling - Shadowproof

CommunityPam's House BlendMany pols I’ve encountered are pretty self-absorbed characters with outsized egos. I don’t think it’s a requirement of course, but you probably have a healthy ego to ask people for money.I have to say that a few pols stand out in my mind as quite genuine in that they simply want to serve the people, and have a backbone in the wake of political adversity. Krystal Ball, who is running for Congress in the 1st district of Virginia and is a strong LGBT ally, is one of those people. I met her a couple of years ago at Netroots Nation as she was kicking off her run, and...

Haggard beans-spiller Grant Haas on Mike Signorile Show - Shadowproof

Haggard beans-spiller Grant Haas on Mike Signorile Show - Shadowproof

CommunityPam's House BlendAll I can tell you is that you won’t want to miss this (I will post audio once it’s available). Grant Haas, the man paid hush money by New Life Church who decided to came forward to disclose more sordid tales about Ted Haggard’s extramarital man-on-man sexual activities, will be on The Michelangelo Signorile Show today at 3PM.Grant Haas went public last week to a Colorado Springs TV news station with new accusations against Ted Haggard and New Life Church. But they only told a fraction of his story, which is quite stunning and scandalous.Trust me, it’s way more...

Update on the depraved adoptive (and heterosexual) parents, John and Linda Dollar - Shadowproof

Update on the depraved adoptive (and heterosexual) parents, John and Linda Dollar - Shadowproof

The Dollars in court. These people managed to adopt five kids and perpetrate heinous crimes against them.I can’t imagine what the defense is going to be in this case. Insanity? The kids did it to themselves? This happened in Florida — Jeb’s state — which has ruled that gay people are ineligible to adopt. The state, however, did nothing to ensure that this sick heterosexual couple was qualified to adopt FIVE kids to live in their house of horrors? ():Five children who say they were abused by their adoptive parents told investigators they were denied food for up to three days and hung by...

A first step: anti-gay singer Buju Banton meets with LGBT activists in San Francisco - Shadowproof

A first step: anti-gay singer Buju Banton meets with LGBT activists in San Francisco - Shadowproof

CommunityPam's House BlendKudos for this action, even if it didn’t bear fruit. Opening a dialogue about homo-hate music woven into Jamaican culture has to begin with some of the musicians who popularized it. Activists met with Buju Banton, who has had many of his concerts canceled due to actions by LGBTs to pressure the venues to cancel the event.As Michael Petrelis reports, he and other members of San Francisco’s gay community sat down with the singer. It’s the first time he’s met with gay activists, so this is at least breaking the ice.The meeting was very civil and productive, even...
