What is happening to Wikileaks media star Assange is NOTHING compared to what is happening to Bradley Manning, the person who actually allegedly leaked the documents and has been held as a political prisoner is the U.S. for what, two years now? Pull your head out of your ass.

jefferyk commented on the blog post Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt: Why You Shouldn’t Boycott North Carolina
Sorry — I’m keeping my gay dollars out of North Carolina. These politicians want our money while discriminating against us at the same time. It’s like, in order to get elected, they go on and on about how horrible we are, and then their ideas are written in to law, and they then turn around and tell us that they didn’t mean it, please don’t boycott us??? C’mon — how stupid are we? Arguing that certain parts of North Carolina are worse than others is hair splitting — because I am gay, I am second class no matter where I am in North Carolina. And I am staying far, far away. P.S. Where exactly were our supposed allies in North Carolina? They couldn’t even bother to vote.

And in fact, my health insurance premium is going up 109% come January 1. It is more than doubling. So, what health care reform?
