President Obama’s Gay Rights In Inaugural Speech

We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths — that all of us are created equal — is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.

That was part of president Obama’s Inaugural speech saying that all people are created equal and that includes lgbt (lesbian gay bisexual and transgender) people. This is a huge step forward for the United States of America. As president Obama said “to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.” What that meant was say was that Martin Luther King Jr was conveying that individual should help others.

My Brother Sam is Dead Article (Warning: Spoilers)

Soldier Sam Meeker Killed By Rebel Forces


Sam meeker
February 17, 1779
Redding, Connecticut

Yesterday Sam Meeker, a member of the rebel forces, was falsely accused of stealing cattle and was shot down by a rebel firing squad.

Meeker was a 20 year old soldier in the rebel army who according to his brother wanted nothing more than liberty. Meeker was survived by his brother Tim and his mother. His father, although he supported the British and didn’t want war, was put in a British prison ship where he died of cholera. Tim wanted to serve in the army like Meeker but didn’t know which side to chose.Tim was motivated by glory and he looked up to his brother but also to his father.

Fellow soldiers unsuccessfully tried to steal cattle from Meeker’s family and then blamed it on Meeker. Meeker  had a trial but there was no evidence against meeker except that the cows tried to follow him. General Putnam was determined to make an example out of somebody of how they can’t steal cattle or they will get shot. 

Meeker was found guilty and sentenced to death by firing squad at the rebel base just outside of redding. Meeker’s brother came to the execution and watched his brother die.  Meeker’s brother was sad and his mother couldn’t bear to come to the shooting or the funeral.

Based on the book My Brother Sam is Dead by James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier.

Google Takes on Tiny Doogle

Doogle vs. Google

The search engine Google is threatening to sue a small South African site called Doogle beacase its name and  logo are similar . Doogle is a tiny job search site created by Andries Maree Van Der Merwe. Van Der Merwe said in response to Google’s threat to “I’m not giving up my name. Doogle is who I am. It’s my business. I registered the company and legally acquired the domain.”

I personally think that what Google is doing is unfair and selfish. If they are trying to protect  Google here is my thought don’t pick on small a business.
