  1. Jomanita says:

    In reference to same sex marriages and President Obama’s statement of backing gay marriage, it is truly an oxymoron that the State of Georgia is one of the 30 states that is against same sex marriages when Georgia has the LARGEST amount of homosexuals and lesbians in the country and possibly the world. It’s about time that the leader of a country that professes so damn much about democracy and freedom in other countries finally steps up and understands that everyone should be treated with respect and same sex couples should have the rights that heterosexual couples. RIGHT ON PRESIDENT OBAMA!

      Jomanita…Georgia isn’t even in the top 20! New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Washington, D.C., Boston, San Diego, Denver, Seattle, and Portland, Oregon, all make the list of the 20 gayest metros. But so do Dallas, Columbus, Ohio, Santa Rosa and Sacramento, Springfield, Massachusetts, Portland, Maine, and college towns like Eugene, Oregon, Ann Arbor, Michigan and Ithaca, New York.

  2. KEEPING IT THOUGHTFULLY HONEST: Ok! Now let’s move-on! Let’s keep our eye on the ball! It’s about JOBS! Remember?

      So.. the civil liberties of ALL Americans- whether gay or straight- isn’t keeping our eye on the ball? It’s equally as important to jobs and the economy.

    Does it surprise anyone that so many in the South are against gay rights! Seems at one time we had a civil war because they also denied someone else their rights! The right to vote, the right to sit in the front of the bus, and to drink water from a drinking fountain! And now some are calling them to arms if Obama is reelected!

  4. We don’t need another President Bush for President.
