So last week, protesters in colorado who supported the downfall of "civil mariage" said the pledge of aligence on the capital steps -- the sound bite playing on the radio stated that the group got very patriotic with the sound bite "and justice for all." Talk about hypocrites. Go Barak! Thank you for standing up for "and justice for all".

How is Obama following Hitler? Hitler took a whole group of people he didn't like, and used them as scapegoats to gain power? If anyone is following Hitler, it's the people who are attempting to take rights away or bar rights from people in the LGBT community. You Marty, are the one following Hitler, spouting hate speech and being a disgrace to the human race.

Sarah J Chandler you're not an American either Sarah. Your ancestors were not always on this land and btw Obama is the exact example of what America is all about. Prove to me that you are more American than the Native Americans. Let's remember that this is not the original home of people like yourself. And don't tell me you're part Native American or some nonsense because Native American culture thought that gay people were a blessing, possessing the traits of both genders which made them more complete people, they respected them.

Even if you do consider homosexuality a sin, you are to love the sinner and hate the sin! Also, deny homosexuals their rights is discrimination, and discrimination of any form should not be tolerated!

We have all heard about the big noise with "equality of marriage" regarding gays, though gays represent less than 8% of the population. What percentage of the population are fathers? About 50%?

Shouldn't FATHER'S RIGHTS and EQUALITY be a much more paramount and popular issue?

Shouldn't reforming the biased courts, issuing STANDARD 50% custody, and making support laws truly equal such that mothers share the burden of working while the father is no longer enslaved?

If we are ever going to get the level of media coverage as the chick-fil-a / gay marriage then we must get more active. Write your representatives in government demanding the abolishment of Title IVd money and other government incentives to reward the nefarious collection of support. Write letters to the editor in the newspaper telling your story of how a biased court took your children. Talk about these issues with your friends and neighbors and keep the conversation going and in everyone's consciousness. Help the divorcing father in your neighborhood, when he gets thrown out with nothing; give him some furniture so he can make a home for his children and win his rightful half of custody. Share this page with at least 5 of your friends who have or are experiencing the same mistreatment in the courts... and support other pages FIGHTING FOR EQUAL PARENTING RIGHTS (Our title is "Father's" rights but we support mistreated mothers also.)

Truth be told, before that, Americans came across as narcisistic and were not aware the world did not revere them as much as they believed. There is still along way to go before the world is at peace, I think this statement from Obama was peaceful and brave. But then, that is why you voted for him wasn't it. Well, that is why we respect you for your vote anyway. Voting for Obama tells the world that not all Americans are re-neck haters.

I would love to see a giant leap toward the social awareness we need to attain, but it will be frustrating baby-steps for a long time to come. You have a first-hand example right here ... when an American citzen compares the President of the USA ... any president ... to Adolf Hitler, you can see the kind of ignorance we are still struggling against. I am an old woman who lived through Hitler's war, and the comparison between the two men is shameful. Thank you, again for your kind words.

I think any labeling is unfortunate, because labels separate us instead of bringing Americans together, but their definition of REDNECK has me eager to move among you and achieve some level of redneck-dom myself. You are warm, charming, and easygoing, and I can certainly use some of that.

Baby steps Oh, how frustrating are baby steps. I am helping a group of students here protest agains the introduction of the American Lingerie Football League in a few weeks. Why can't women just play clothed? It is really frustrating trying to get the mainstream media to back us, they are backing LFL and calling it "a celebration of women's femininity". We, the kids and I, are dumbfounded that the whole world isn't fighting against this LFL." Baby steps" is what I tell them, "you are ahead of your time" I tell them, I have to tell them something before they are completely disillusioned. "Look at Obama" I tell them. Imagine how brave he is to speak out about something we find so obvious. Peace and love to you Patricia and I will never label someone with Redneck again, thanks for the education. Even the peaceful need a reminder. p.s. America is a reflection of all Western life, it is the new horizon for the west. We are not better here and we are no worse. We have the good and the bad, the word ignorance comes from the phrase 'to ignore' I believe it means to ignore the inner truth. Now that is where the work is.

Sorry Laquetia, I wrote that before I read your comments. It was in reply to the 'Hitler' guy. I read your message and was well put back in my box. Here I am ridiculing the ignorant by labelling them with a word that I don't know the meaning of. It was said in anger and not with an educated spiritual respect for the truth. In Australia the word reneck relates to racism and ignorance. Racism is common here, it is not as obvious as it is in America, it goes on much more silently and most...

Sorry Laquetia, I wrote that before I read your comments. It was in reply to the 'Hitler' guy. I read your message and was well put back in my box. Here I am ridiculing the ignorant by labelling them with a word that I don't know the meaning of. It was said in anger and not with an educated spiritual respect for the truth. In Australia the word reneck relates to racism and ignorance. Racism is common here, it is not as obvious as it is in America, it goes on much more silently and most people are in complete denial of it, it is only the peaceful who acknowledge this problem exists. It is common for people to say "I'm not racist but...." I am a community worker who works for the most vulnerable people in our community. My days are filled with advocacy on their behalf and I am good at what I do. I greatly respect your comments that many Americans are peaceful loving good people. I spent 10 years at home growing with many American women while bringing up my children, watching Oprah. I know about the goodness in America, I have great respect for the leadership role America has in the world. We are all growing, all over the world, together. Some are still trying to catch up, others are waking up as we speak and then there are the rest who are well awake. In Australia, when we refer to a Redneck American we are thinking of the truck driver in "Thelma & Louise" or the KKK. Obviously this is a misinterpretation from your perspective so thank you, and sorry to put you in that category, obviously that is very incorrect. Peace to you and your family. Thanks for being one of the good in the world, and major apologies for the insult.

Lisa Elliott I love "Wake up Australia, Tasmania is floating away." It really hits the mark, especially when we look at where Tasmania is compared to Austalia ... haha. I think most of us understood what you were saying. I've had a few unnerving responses to several of my remarks. Its all good ... that's how we all learn never to repeat those bloopers again. America loves Australia, and that's the truth. Keep speaking. That's what's important.
