Let Them Advertise

Colbert King, and the established gay activists in DC, get it right on allowing offensive anti-same-sex-marriage ads on Metrobuses in DC. Free speech doesn’t extend only to speech we agree with.

Right Wing Fraud

Orchestrated “grass-roots” intimidation of Congressmembers regarding health care reform.

A shame this can’t/won’t get prosecuted.

Fixing Compensation

A slate.com article with good ideas about fixing executive compensation. For too long the men and women who serve at the top of American corporation have had too many ethical conflicts of interest, which has lead to some of the current financial mess. This presents a good way out of it, without otherwise unduly inserting the government into the process.

Not To Be Silenced

Bishop Robinson’s prayer at the beginning of Sunday’s concert welcoming the President-elect. While HBO did not deign to show it, and many there in person did not hear it because of sound issues, it was recorded and it should be heard.

War on Science

From an excellent article by Christopher Hitchens over on Slate:

This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placed within reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud, boastful ignoramus. Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated and the cultured. And those who prate of spiritual warfare and demons are not just “people of faith” but theocratic bullies. On Nov. 4, anyone who cares for the Constitution has a clear duty to repudiate this wickedness and stupidity.

Hear, hear.
