Gays and Lesbians Starting To Feel Screwed By Obama

You Voted for him, he feels ya, but he is just to busy right now.

Hey folks,

Do you remember way back on March 2 2008, Obama sent an open letter to the Gay and Lesbian community?

Here are some of the highlights.

“In the U.S. Senate, I have co-sponsored bills that would equalize tax treatment for same-sex couples and provide benefits to domestic partners of federal employees,”

“And as president, I will place the weight of my administration behind the enactment of the Matthew Shepard Act to outlaw hate crimes and a fully inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act to outlaw workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.”

The letter goes on to say that if elected president he would use the bully pulpit “to urge states to treat same-sex couples with full equality in their family and adoption laws.”

“I personally believe that civil unions represent the best way to secure that equal treatment.”

“I also believe that the federal government should not stand in the way of states that want to decide on their own how best to pursue equality for gay and lesbian couples — whether that means a domestic partnership, a civil union, or a civil marriage.”

“Unlike Senator Clinton, I support the complete repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) – a position I have held since before arriving in the U.S. Senate.”

“While some say we should repeal only part of the law, I believe we should get rid of that statute altogether. Federal law should not discriminate in any way against gay and lesbian couples, which is precisely what DOMA does.”

Obama also said that he supports the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.


The open letter was released as Obama prepares to run ads in four major LGBT newspapers in Texas and Ohio in advance of Democratic Party primaries.

It worked. The gays came out in support of Obama and threw Clinton under the bus.

But you have to also remember that Obama Said THIS on November 8 in one of his little Town Hall style meetings.

"I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. I'm not in favor of gay marriage."

The People voted on Prop 8, and other ballot measure of the same nature in various states. They all passed, in essence Banning Gay Marriage. We still await the California Supreme Court's Decision, but it is expected that they will uphold the Will of the People. Some are already planning protests. Where is Obama?

What about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell? Well, he seems to just be too busy to worry about that right now. Sorry. According to Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who appeared on "Fox News Sunday," no change is likely in the near future.

Gates says both he and President Barack Obama have "a lot on our plates right now." As Gates puts it, "let's push that one down the road a little bit."

So what happened to Obama being this Super Gay Advocate? Oh yeah, he got the Votes. That's all that really matters. Right?

Gays and Lesbians have no more rights then any one else but for some reason they expect the rest of us to kowtow to their disgusting lifestyle.

Personally, I don’t care one way or the other. Marriage is a religious ceremony, who cares what any government says. The few gays I’ve known and know didn’t concern them selves with it. The whole issue is one of POLICAL BULLSHIT; just more special interest groups getting dummys to vote for them on issues the government has no business getting into, in the first place. If anything needs banning it’s civil marriages. We need to get the governments out of the field of social engineering. Like I need Obama to approve who I’m doinking? Screw him as well as the horse he rode in on. What ever happened to 'It's none of your business'

Hey Irishgodfather,

This is one hundred percent true.

"Gays and Lesbians have no more rights then any one else."

For Heterosexuals, we have sex. We love sex. We have lives. We go to work, school, to the park, whatever. We do what we do. Outside of our relationships, we rarely talk about who we just did, or the manor we did them.

One of the things I think is wrong with the whole militant Gay Activists is they seem to want to define themselves with who they have sex with.

I'm not out there parading around in public naked screaming in people's faces something like

"I'm Straight, make no mistake."

Who cares who I'm doing behind closed doors. That does not define who I am. It should not them either.

But my point to this is that these people REALLY believed, as with most Liberals, that Obama was going to set them free. He was going to do all these things for them. Why not? He said so. But now? Now he is saying the same thing to them as he is saying to the rest of us. "Thanks for the Votes, now piss off."

Hey D. S.

You know I agree with you here. I really have never believed the Government should get involved in the marriage thing anyway. Who is the Government to say who you can or cannot spend the rest of your life with.

My point is that these idiots {Libs} keep voting these Idiots {Hard Left, or the LWL} into power. Yet every time they do, they get even more screwed then they do with the Republicans. This is just one more example.

Obama came out and said he was going to do all this stuff, now he is too busy, or he admits that he really does not believe as they do anyway. {There is not enough of them to matter, when compared to others at the Voting Both.} Yet they keep voting for and praising him

Oh by the way.

"Screw him as well as the horse he rode in on."

That would be Bestiality. As far as I know, that's still illegal. But hey, give them time.

Seriously fags. I only use that word because I am a Romani, the proper word for Gypsy and you just used a super racist word. You know Obama disappointed us too he said insurance companies are gypping us. Like a fourth of one percent of America groaned. I bet Obama or any serious candidate would never say we got Jewed.

Hey Beznik,

Welcome to the OPNTalk Blog. Glad you stopped by.

Thank you for the insight on this. I have never heard that the term was Racist, or hurtful to any "People." I was not aware of it being originally a derogatory term used against the Romani. I'm sure most that use this term has no clue either.

As you can see, I've changed the Headline of this Story and will be discussing this on Sunday 060511.

If I offended you in any way by the use of the word, I apologize and understand that it was never meant as a Racial Term or a Hurtful Slag towards any Person or People. It was intended to be what it is. Screwed, shorted, ripped off, lied to, swindled, cheated, hosed, ETC.

Thank you again for the information.
Peter

Now, not that I'm Gay, I'm clearly not, YOU may want to apologize for YOUR use of the Slag Term "fags."
