I look just like Melissa and even sing just like her. Just ask my spider plant silvia, she's my biggest fan! Seriously folks! I am going to put a link to this my friend. I will have alot of comments but you know what? I respect you my friend. I am making a statement, our friendship and respect allow for the exchange of ideas. This is a very helpfull idea in times of stress!
So Rock on Melissa!!

Thank you Kelli. You know I understand the pain of the Trans community with regards to HRC and the whole ENDA debacle. It is a tough situation, it sucks that HRC hasn't been more Trans-friendly but at the same token we need HRC in our overall battle for equality. I figure I will continue to post HRC stuff and anti-HRC demo's and let readers decide for themselves what to do.

What are we going to win? A flip flop man, a shape shifter a person who could do us in quicker than one can say Bill Clinton. Remember him? I do and I remember when GLBTers were all a ga, ga over him and his promises. Obama has shown his ability to do the same to us and our world. Members of Queers Without Borders will be in Denver but out in the street to protest one of the evil twins the Demonrats. Careful in playing kissy kissy with them or with HRC. Getting burned is not much fun. Just my thoughts on this discussion of demonrats, shape shifters, and HRC. (I wouldn't trust what HRC says is good for anything.) So rock on dear friends but remember "Rome" is burning.

Hey, while I am at it I love this blog Queers United and of course Kelli's also. Hi Kelli!

Richard you make a very good point. Sadly Queers ultimately win a flip-flopper and shape shifter who will say or do anything and pander to the radical right and compromise on our rights.

I hope someone (the Etheridge group as marketing strategy?) is filming a documentary of this. This could seriously be cool.
