Mixed Couples? / Couple discusses interracial marriage
« Last post by George on April 21, 2011, 11:12:28 PM »
Quoting from the article...

Sexuality, interracial relationships, gender roles and challenges of identity were explored in honor of Pride Week in “The Miscegenations Project,” presented Wednesday night in Heritage Hall.

The idea of miscegenation –– the marriage, cohabitation, or sexual intercourse between a white person and a member of another race –– was a focal point in the presentation by authors Lea Robinson and Elizabeth Whitney.

In a video presentation with accompanying narration, Robinson and Whitney spoke about the challenges they face not only in regards to their same-sex marriage, but as an interracial couple.

Robinson, the assistant director for the Office of Multicultural Affairs and manager of LGBTQ Advising and Programming at Columbia University, said because of glares and comments they endure when using public transportation, a simple commute will often leave the couple feeling judged, exposed and angry.

“It definitely takes courage to move through public spaces together,” she said.

Obama's Hope and Change / Trump: Grandma Says Obama Was Born in Kenya
« Last post by George on April 07, 2011, 09:44:38 PM »
This makes me say WTF?  Quoting from the story...

“The grandmother in Kenya is on record saying he was born in Kenya,” Trump said. “The hospital has, not only no birth certificate — or if they have it they should produce it, maybe there is something on it, who knows — but they have no records that he was there. The family is fighting over which hospital in Hawaii he was born in.

“There is not one record, in any hospital in Hawaii, that Barack Hussein Obama was born there,” he added.

Quoting from the article...

One the leading tea party voices in Congress is suggesting that President Obama might have begun planning a government shutdown last year with “malicious” intent.

“Why was it that a few months ago … when the president had both Houses under the control of his party — why did he opt not to pass a budget for fiscal year 2011?” asked Sen. Mike Lee, who helped found the Senate’s Tea Party Caucus earlier this year, according to The Hill.

“It was either irresponsible on one hand or deliberate and malicious on the other with intention to bring about a sequence of events that would culminate inevitably in a government shutdown,” said Lee, R-Utah.


In my opinion Obama is trying a strategy to make the Republicans look like they are causing the Government shutdown.  He's playing political games instead of doing the right thing.  Read the rest of the story at the link below.

Obama's Hope and Change / Obamacare Paid Out $2 Billion to Corporations
« Last post by George on April 05, 2011, 08:21:07 PM »
What in the world is this BS?!?!?

Quoting from the article...

A little-known provision in the Obamacare legislation has sent $2 billion to corporations, unions and state public employee systems to subsidize health coverage for retirees.

At the current rate, the government could blow through the entire $5 billion budgeted for the program before it is set to end, Byron York of The Washington Examiner reported.

The discovery by investigators for the House Energy and Commerce Committee was made just before a hearing to focus on Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services.

The CCIO oversees the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program, which was set up to subsidize insurance for workers who retired before they were eligible for Medicare, the paper said.

The early retirees often have trouble getting health insurance, an HHS report said, because of age or chronic conditions, and the program was set up to bridge the gap between retirement and the creation of health-care exchanges provided for in Obamacare come into being in 2014.

The biggest chunk of the money paid out so far has gone to the United Auto Workers, which received over $206 million. AT&T collected $140 million, Verizon $91 million, General Electric $36 million, and General Motors $19 million, the paper said.

State governments have also collected large sums with the Public Employees Retirement System of Ohio receiving $70 million and the Teacher Retirement System of Texas $68 million.

Obama's Hope and Change / Gasoline up 100% under Obama
« Last post by George on April 01, 2011, 09:47:17 PM »
Quoting from the Washington Times article...

Feeling pain at the pump? Gas prices have doubled since Mr. Obama took office. According to the GasBuddy gasoline price tracking web site, the price of a gallon of regular gas was around $1.79 when Mr. Obama took office. Today the national average is $3.58. The lowest average price in the continental United States is $3.31 in Tulsa Oklahoma, the highest is $4.14 in Santa Barbara, CA. Four-dollar-a-gallon gas has arrived on average throughout California, and a number of other states are headed in that direction.

Obama's Hope and Change / Obama's approval hits new low of 42%
« Last post by George on April 01, 2011, 07:04:28 AM »
Quoting from the article...

President Barack Obama’s approval rating and prospects for reelection have plunged to all-time lows in a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.

Half of the registered voters surveyed for the poll  think that the president does not deserve a second term in office, while 41 percent say he does. In another Quinnipiac poll released just four weeks ago, 45 percent said the president did not deserve reelection, while 47 percent said he did.

The decline in support for a second Obama term comes as his approval rating has dropped 4 percentage points since early March, landing at 42 percent – a record low – in the poll released Wednesday. His disapproval rating has risen from 46 percent to 48 percent.

I would like to share an article about the importance of parents' support when it comes to their child's mixed relationship.

How many of us fear the moment when we have to announce our parents that we have a foreign boyfriend/girlfriend. How many of us fear even more, if the bfriend or gfriend is of another race?
