Boycott Kansas and Arizona?


Most Americans supported President Obama’s boycott of the Olympic games in Sochi. We pointed a finger at the Russians, sending a loud message that as Americans we will not tolerate violations of human rights, affirming once again that “we” are the good guys, you are the bad.

How can America point a finger at any country with states like Kansas and Arizona governing its citizens with the blind morality of the dark ages by unabashedly threatening and violating the rights of gays and lesbians?

America needs President Obama to stand by her and guide her through the night with a Light from above. That Light blesses every human being from the mountains and the prairies to the ocean white foam … I thought this was a land we all love.
