Federalize Civil Unions?????

Federalize Civil Unions. I know its sounds blasphemous; but states rushing to Redefine marriage. I propose a federal civil unions  to provide Gays lesbians, Transgenders to a civil union to have the same laws like marriage and it must be national.  The ability to inherit their partner’s estates, insurance, health care and all legal entreaties that we straights have.  And the law must be able to go from one state to another. (not just states but Territories and Commonwealths  of the US.) Other countries most likely to not accept this But I feel that we are possibility in a losing battle especially in states like where I live (California)which the courts could overthrow Prop 8  although the justices could be recalled (remember Chief Justice of California Supreme Court Rose Bird and a couple of others were thrown out by the voters in the Mid Nineties recall program)

This way Churches, Mosques, Synagouges and religious institutions should be exempted based on religious doctrine, rules and laws. Its only right.

My choice to replace Alan Colmes: Uncle Bob Beckel

I know who should replace Alan Colmes on Hannity and Colmes: Bob Beckel. Beckel who has subs for Colmes would be perfect. He and Hannity are friends,  Beckel is a firebrand liberal who can hold his own against Sean. It will be even more lively than it is. His knowledge of politics will be serve the show well.

My vote is for Bob Beckel!

End of an Era: Alan Colmes to leave Hannity and Colmes

On Monday, Radio and TV talk show host Alan Colmes is leaving the co-named Hannity and Colmes after twelve years to the left of sparring with co-host.  The news broke on the Drudge Report via Breitbart.com.

In his decision Colmes said, “I approached Bill Shine (FNC’s Senior Vice President of Programming) earlier this year about wanting to move on after 12 years to develop new and challenging ways to contribute to the growth of the network. Although it’s bittersweet to leave one of the longest marriages on cable news, I’m proud that both Sean (Hannity) and I remained unharmed after sitting side by side, night after night for so many years.”

That leaves Hannity host the program in the interim.  Meanwhile Colmes is developing a show or two for FNC He will also continue hosting his Radio program which is syndicated by Fox News Radio.

I wish Alan all the best he helped to Hannity and Colmes a great show that is its. Thanks Alan!

The war on Gov. Sarah Palin

It has been a week since Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin lost the election to President-Elect Barack Obama and VP Elect-Joe Biden; the long knives are out for Sarah Palin even after the defeat. Last week former McCain campaign operative began attacking her almost immediately , calling a her a dummy saying that she thought Africa was a country not a continent. Complaining about the wardrobe was more expensive that the $150,000 that the GOP was spending including this that she bought her husband silk boxers. (this is nuts she doesn’t need to get the GOP to buy the boxers and they are not poor. ( I used to work in retail in 1980’s and 1990’s and You can get silk boxer anywhere from Wal-Mart to Neiman-Marcus. and anyways we don’t need to know if Todd wears silk boxers or not that’s not the issue and I don’t care) These rumors are without merit and I for one am glad shes fighting back there other things to fight about. These Republican low life’s need to get a life. Bitter A__holes!(By the way, the same can be said of the Democrat knuckleheads who are saying equally stupid sh_t.

Folks just get a life!

Hollywood its time to put up or shut up

Now that Barack Obama is President-Elect and will be president in January, Will Hollywood increase the number minorities staring in major TV networks or will we relegated to the minor networks. For years many African-Americans, Latinos other minorities in Hollywood feel as if they an afterthought mostly in supporting rolls on the big 4 networks: CBS,NBC,ABC,FOX especially in dramas. And we only get the leading roles in comedy on minor networks like the CW and My Network Television. As TV screenwriters polish their scripts to be green lighted and shows prepare to film or tape for the upcoming pilot season will minorities get the leads or will they be overlooked.

In addition, will this apply to above the line production talent as well? Will we see more minorities get to write, direct and produce network dramas in addition minority comedies? The breakthrough has been made in DC; Now it’s Hollywood’s turn. We will see.

HOPE FOR BLACK MEN???????

The recent election of President-Elect Barack Obama should give black men hope on several fronts:

  1. Some black men and teens may want to jump out of gangs ( or better yet never join one) as the President-Elect shows that we can achieve anything.
  2. We can finally allow all blacks to be our selfs whether we act street or proper or a combination of the two without berating each other. And we can accept each other.
  3. Why can we achieve anything. Even if it takes time.(I am speaking to myself too)
  4. Whites don’t need to be afraid of black men in public ( by the way not all whites or other minorities are afraid of us.)
  5. Hopefully we can stop to notion of the concept of DWB driving while black.
  6. Black kids do not have to be ashamed to admit to be a honor student in school and be academic achiever. Even better the kids can be both.
  7. Will see more positive portrayal of black men in movies in roles of doctors, lawyers, journalists, business executives, corporate bigwigs, and titans of industry.

This is a small is list hopes and dreams that will be achieved.

History was Made OBAMA WINS!

Tuesday, November Ililnois Senator Barack Obama won the Presidency.  By 346 to 158 electoral points.  The youth movement represented a major shift to the Democrats. However when it came to issues conservatism ruled the day with Marriage laws enacted in California and other state still show the country is center-right.

On the other hand Democrats, control everything. White House , House of Representatives and Senate.  Which show the country’s political leaders going hard left.

Congratulations to President-Elect Obama a job well done.
