Nothing New in Mr. Bush’s Address Last Night

Not one new proposal for how to finish what we so foolishly started in Iraq!

Abu Ghraib Won’t Go Away

As a gay man, I’m alarmed that my government used my sexual orientation as a weapon in this ill advised war on Iraq. I wrote in detail about my reaction to the prison abuse scandal on April 30, 2004. Last night, after watching Mr. Bush’s speech I read an article in The Advocate by Patrick Moore titled “Weapons of mass homophobia” in which Mr. Moore details his very similar reaction to the prison abuse scandal. Last night I also watched the military give Mr. Bush a standing ovation at the end of his speech and I thought, “this is our worst nightmare!” We have a military leadership gone mad with power, and, their Commander in Chief, a man who would write a 28th Amendment to our Constitution that will make lesbian and gay Americans second class citizens. The though of such an abuse of the constitution of the United States - a document designed by the forefathers of our nation to provide for our freedom - almost makes me ill.

Mr. Bush has got to go!
