LGBTQ Sen. Kyrsten Sinema - From Obstructionist To Shero?

There are exactly two United States Senators who publicly identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer. Senators Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) are the dynamic and capable LGBTQ duo in the upper chamber of Congress. 

With only two LGBTQ Senators, I worry about their images and how they are portrayed in the media because it reflects on our community.

Senator Joni Ernst, Republican of Iowa, Wants Your Pussy!

Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) wants your pussy and no one is talking about it!

It's unfathomable to me that men and women will vote for a political party that is ANTI-WOMEN. Why do they do it? This is a transcription of a real conversation I had with a friend about the Republican Party's continuing War On Women.

ROY: Dustin, If I told you there’s a bill in Congress introduced to protect federal funding for women’s healthcare, called the “Protect Funding for Women’s Health Care Act”, would you believe me?

Racism: Marjorie Taylor Greene's Anglo-Saxon Obsession

Racism: Marjorie Taylor Greene's Anglo-Saxon Obsession

By Roy Steele

This is crazy. The embattled Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (Q-GA) is fighting hard for attention and relevance in the halls of Congress, among the media, and in the Republican party. She’s a political rookie who dove headfirst into the deep end. She wants to be useful and productive but is in water way over her head. She seemingly has nothing to do except stir up trouble.

Trump and the GOP Battle To Preserve White Privilege

DUMB DUMB Donald Trump looks into a mirror being held by an aide at CPAC 2021 in Orlando, Florida.

Did you catch this? Some people will never learn. There he was in his stock uniform. He had on that awful looking wrinkled navy blue ill-fitting suit. The ‘Just For Men’ dyed blonde hair under his wig was a bit wild and needed a trim, while the poorly applied orange makeup and under-eye concealer wasn't blended in.

The legendary penny-pincher hasn't learned to avoid off-the-rack ninety nine dollar suits purchased in the Big and Tall department. His signature red necktie had visible food stains. Barely held together by a paper clip and scotch tape, it was slightly askew and too long. Makes you wonder who gives him the once over when he leaves the house.

Oops! I forgot. HE gives himself the once over. He's an image expert, a television reality show host, a wannabe politician, and a bankrupt businessman rolled into one, and he's somehow smarter than every general in our military. He has the best education, the best words, and claims to know EVERYTHING - and I can only assume that's how people who know everything roll!

When coronavirus restrictions threatened the White Party, an annual gay circuit party held in Palm Springs, California, the organizer, Jeffrey Sanker, decided to move the festivities to Jalisco, Mexico.
