Progress IS Possible !

May Obama prevail over the clouded fears of the manipulated to move the United States ever more out of its self-imposed Dark Ages into the light of thoughtful and compassionate statehood!

Obama extends hospital visitation rights to same-sex partners of gays [The Washington Post, April 16, 2010]

President Obama mandated Thursday that nearly all hospitals extend visitation rights to the partners of gay men and lesbians and respect patients' choices about who may make critical health-care decisions for them, perhaps the most significant step so far in his efforts to expand the rights of gay Americans.

I truly welcome all the enlightened actions of this administration, hope indeed that it can push back the resentments that all too many Americans seem to have made into their new guiding ideology.

-- And a note on deficits, people: Who turned a budget surplus into the BIGGEST deficit ever? The Bushbaby ! And that Paling tea cozy babbling in your ears would like to "reduce" taxes and increase the deficit even more. Have you ever stopped to consider that those who benefit the most from tax cuts are those who have so much money they don't notice the difference, while those with hardly anything might just be able to buy one more loaf of unhealthy squishy white bread per month with the benefits they receive?
Come on, think and stop whining!
