Don’t get me wrong. As the son of a single mom, who gave everything she had to raise me with the help of my grandparents, I turned out okay. But at the same time, I wish I’d have had a father who was around and involved.
President Obama • Speaking to a predominantly black high school audience at Hyde Park Academy in the South Side of Chicago today, with a slightly different angle on the pro-gun control rhetoric he’s been voicing of late — urging that positive examples in poverty-stricken communities, in family life as well as community life, are also necessary to reduce violence: “…it can feel like the future only extends to the next street corner or the outskirts of town… There are entire neighborhoods where they don’t see an example of somebody succeeding.” source

We knew it was too good to be true. Why didn’t Tancredo realize when he made the bet, or when he agreed to uphold it several days ago, that smoking weed would set a bad example for his grandchildren? source

There was a unanimous decision in the drafting committee to include it in the platform…everybody was for it.
Retiring Rep. Barney Frank • On the inclusion of gay marriage as part of the official Democratic Party platform. The 15-member Democratic Party platform draft committee unanimously approved language supporting marriage equality, and according to Frank, a member of the committee, the vote wasn’t even close. The draft still has to be approved by the full platform committee, which meets in two weeks; then, delegates at the Democratic National Convention will have to vote in favor of it it. Huffington Post, which talked to two sources on the matter, claims that “the deal is more or less final.” Reacting to the news, the president of the National Organization for Marriage said that Democrats “can kiss the presidential election, the House and now the Senate goodbye.” What do you think—will this help or hurt Democrats in November?  source (viafollow)

[It is my] understanding the public security authorities are investigating Ai Weiwei according to law on suspicion of economic crimes… This has nothing to do with human rights or freedom of expression.
Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hong Lei • Seeking to dismiss claims that his government arrested famed artist and dissident Ai Weiwei for political reasons, at a news conference. Weiwei’s family (in addition, frankly, to most everyone else) isn’t buying it. Chinese law states that officials must notify the family of an arrested citizen within 24 hours of the detention, and Ai’s wife has heard nothing: “As of 8 A.M. today, it has been 96 hours since Ai Weiwei was taken away from Beijing airport, and I haven’t heard a single word about him.” source (viafollow)
