The Orwellian, Deadbeat President

From Newsday:

President Barack Obama demanded Monday that lawmakers raise the nation’s $16.4 trillion federal debt limit quickly, warning that “Social Security benefits and veterans’ checks will be delayed” if they don’t and cautioning Republicans not to insist on cuts to government spending in exchange.

“They will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the economy,” he said at the 21st and final news conference of his first term. “The full faith and credit of the United States of America is not a bargaining chip. And they better decide quickly because time is running short.”

“We are not a deadbeat nation,” he declared…

Orwellian language – speaking as though the opposite of the situation is somehow the situation – is a hallmark of the Obama presidency, and the statement reported above is typical. So many things wrong with it, it’s tough to know where to start.

First, who is holding hostages and demanding ransoms? Obama is. (more…)

Statement of the GOProud Board of Directors

(Washington, D.C.) – On Saturday January 12th, the GOProud Board of Directors met in Washington, D.C. At the conclusion of this meeting, the Board of Directors issued the following release:

“This weekend, the GOProud Board of Directors elected new officers for 2013. Lisa De Pasquale was elected to a full-term as the Chair of GOProud’s Board of Directors, Bruce Carroll was elected Vice-Chair and Jessica Lee was elected Secretary.

“The GOProud Board of Directors also voted unanimously to expand the organization’s mission to now include state work. Over the next few months, GOProud will be chartering state affiliates to help carry out the important work of the organization on the state and local level.

“GOProud has seen significant growth in the three and a half years since our founding. The GOProud Board has 100% confidence in the management team – led by Executive Director Jimmy LaSalvia, and we look forward to continuing to work with our conservative and libertarian partners to improve the lives of all Americans – including gays and lesbians.”

I am thrilled to expand my role with GOProud and am looking forward to helping grow our grassroots capabilities all across the United States.

How a headache puts things into perspective

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, I woke with a throbbing headache.  I could not fall back asleep until I had taken a long, warm shower  — and a dose of Advil.

A few hours later, with the sun peeking through cracks in my blinds, my head still ached, but I managed to get out of bed, throw on a few clothes and make some coffee.  And take another Advil.

I lamented the pain, fearing it would prevent me from enjoying a quiet Sunday which I had hoped to devote to reading and writing.  Perhaps due to the Advil, perhaps the coffee, perhaps just the cycle of this particular ailment, the pain began to ease; I was able to enjoy my reading and accomplish the writing goals I had established (and then some).

When I did turn to my reading, I had a rather pleasant sensation which grew even as the headache, though much diminished, still lingered.  Perhaps because I had feared that I would not be able to read today as I had hoped, I appreciated all the more the opportunity I had to read a good book at my desk by an a big window open to a sunny day.

Something to keep in mind when we face unexpected obstacles to our enjoyment — and our obligations.

On Jodie Foster & the privacy of gay* celebrities

I have been a fan of Jodie Foster even before confirming, even before hearing, that she liked the ladies.  She is an incredibly versatile actress who has crafted a number of powerful performances, with my favorite one that earned her only a handful of nominations, and two only wins, but no Oscar, not even a nomination, the 1997 film Contact. And I liked her in Panic Room. And she stood out in The Silence of the Lambs, but she did win an Oscar for that–not to mention numerous other honors.

Last night, as nearly everyone knows by now, she, without using the “L” word, acknowledged (as far as I know) for the first time in a public forum that she once had a romantic relationship with another woman and asked, as per the Yahoo! headline below, that people respect her privacy:

. . . I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the Stone Age, in those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family and co-workers and then gradually, proudly to everyone who knew her, to everyone she actually met. But now I’m told, apparently that every celebrity is expected to honor the details of their private life with a press conference, a fragrance and a prime-time reality show. (more…)
