President Obama ENDS abstinence-only funding. Urgent action needed!

Earlier today, President Obama released the first budget of his presidency - which included some tremendously exciting news! The proposed FY10 federal budget eliminates all funding for abstinence-only-until-marriage programs.

Study after study has shown that these programs are ineffective at best - a total waste of the $1.5 billion the U.S. government has spent to date on these failed programs. Even worse, abstinence-only programs often contain false or misleading information about condoms and contraception!

Write to your representatives in Congress today! Ask them to stand with President Obama and support the elimination of abstinence-only-until-marriage programs.

With this budget, President Obama fulfilled his campaign promises to return to science-based policies and to cut programs that simply don't work.

Now the ball is clearly in the court of the Democrats in Congress - most notably Speaker Pelosi and House Appropriations Chairman Obey (D-WI). The President has made it clear that he wants no more congressional funding for failed abstinence-only programs.

Will Congress have the courage to follow through on this vision? Tell your representatives it's time to end funding for abstinence-only programs and start funding comprehensive sex education!

As the budget process moves forward, we all have a role to play - working to ensure that there is no "back door" route for these programs to receive funding, and to build support for comprehensive sex education that takes a holistic approach to the many issues facing young people's sexual health.

We are standing on the brink of an enormous victory for young people in America. Together, we can turn this long-awaited vision into reality.

PS - Take a stand with President Obama! Tell Congress it's time to finally eliminate abstinence-only-until-marriage programs and fund comprehensive sex education.

12:19 pm - Banks not content with screwing us once

Ganked from Shakesville.

From an article in the Wall Street Journal, which I strongly recommend reading in full (it's not behind the subscriber wall) about how the administration's approach to Wall Street has reportedly changed (emphasis mine):

    Meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and his colleagues worked the phones to try to line up support on Wall Street for the plan announced Monday. ... Some bankers say they turned the conversations into complaints about the antibonus crusade consuming Capitol Hill. Some have begun "slow-walking" the information previously sought by Treasury for stress-testing financial institutions, three bankers say, and considered seeking capital from hedge funds and private-equity funds so they could return federal bailout money, thereby escaping federal restrictions.

    ...Bankers were shell-shocked, especially when Congress moved to heavily tax bonuses. When administration officials began calling them to talk about the next phase of the bailout, the bankers turned the tables. They used the calls to lobby against the antibonus legislation, Wall Street executives say. Several big firms called Treasury and White House officials to urge a more reasonable approach, both sides say. The banks' message: If you want our help to get credit flowing again to consumers and businesses, stop the rush to penalize our bonuses.
Did you get that? The bank execs are so worried about their fucking bonuses that they're holding the entire country hostage.

02:13 pm - Rock on, Obama!

Obama nominates pro-p*rn, pro-abortion lawyer for the number 2 position in the office of the Attorney General

Phone calls need now!

February 4, 2009

Dear Stephanie,

Your phone calls are urgently needed now! President Obama has nominated David Ogden to be the second person in command in the U.S. office of the Attorney General! Ogden must be confirmed by the Senate.

Call your two senators and tell them to vote against the Ogden nomination. Ogden is no friend of the family.

• As an attorney in private practice, David W. Ogden has filed briefs pushing for gays in the military.
• He has litigated numerous obscenity and pornography cases on behalf of clients like Playboy, Penthouse, the ACLU and the largest distributor of hardcore pornographic movies.

In various cases, he has filed briefs opposing:
• parental notification before a minor’s abortion
• spousal notification before an abortion
• the military’s policy against public homosexuals serving in uniform
• the Children’s Internet Protection Act and the Child Protection and Obscenity Enforcement Act.


Take Action!

Make your phone call today! Get others to call. Tell your senators to vote against the nomination of David Ogden to the second position at the attorney general’s office. You can reach both of your senators at this number: 202-224-3121.


Thank you for caring enough to get involved. If you feel our efforts are worthy of support, would you consider making a small tax-deductible contribution to help us continue?

Sincerely,

Don

Donald E. Wildmon,
Founder and Chairman
American Family Association

You already know what I want you to do, folks... call your senators and tell them to vote FOR David Ogden.  Hurray for gays in the military and pr0n!
