The Wrap-Up: November 21, 2011

If you are against "Too-Big-Too-Fail" institutions, consider joining a credit union.

It appears that the Super Committee is heading for failure. Guess which gets the honor of taking more blame?

Mitt Romney can't help but talk out of both sides of his mouth, especially on equality for gay people.

Spain's "Popular Party" won in yesterday's elections. This is not good for the nation's current status of supporting marriage equality as the PP is anti-gay (although this election was more about the economy).

Christmas is winning in its war on Thanksgiving.

Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL)
Because this has really been on my mind lately, here is a little more on "Christmas Creep." I'm glad we finally have a name for this, but sad that it's necessary.

An anti-corporate personhood amendment has been introduced into Congress by Rep. Ted Deutch.

As the recall effort against Governor Scott Walker ramps up, threats have been reported against recall supporters.

Rick Perry has become the latest GOP candidate to sign the "Family Leader's" pledge which begs the question: what took him so long when we all knew it would happen anyway?

In an effort to show how classy a group they are, NASCAR fans booed Michelle Obama and Jill Biden who were bringing awareness to the need for employment for the nation's veterans (they weren't even talking about gay vets either).

Remember how Marcus Bachmann threatened the man from "Truth Wins Out" over $150 owed for counseling sessions (which never took place)? TWO says "Bring it."

Giving further evidence that being a person of faith does not inherently entail being a homophobe, a North Carolina congregation made a surprising move.


After I finished writing this, it became official that the Super Committee failed to cut $1.2 trillion from the budget.
