Mom Marries Daughter, Son — An Oklahoma woman is getting two years for marrying her daughter. Earlier she had married her son.
Hmmm. Aren’t her rights being violated or something?
When the gay marriage movement started we wondered why exactly shouldn’t a parent be allowed to use the civil marriage laws as a tax and benefit dodge for a child they loved. Isn’t that the only thing marriage is about? Love?
Broward Sheriff Wants Participation Trophy — Broward County, FL Sheriff Scott Israel, yesterday (Feb. 24) on CNN’s “State of the Union” responded to criticism about his department’s feckless response to the Parkland school massacre that saw 17 students and teachers murdered in cold blood with 14 others wounded.
Gay Extremist Gift Gets Wagner Grief — A $5,000 contribution by a gay extremist in 2015 to a political action committee headed by Scott Wagner is getting the GOP gubernatorial hopeful quite a bit of grief.
The money was given by Tim Gill to Reform PA PAC, which Wagner chairs. Wagner won an historic write-in special election in March 2014 to represent the York County-centered 28th District. He campaigned as a Tea Party candidate against corruption, cronyism and indifference by the Republican establishment.
He won a full term that fall.
While Wagner has been outspokenly good on certain issues such as the state’s scandalous pension system, he seems to have managed to get himself most identified with a bizarre crusade to prohibit businesses and institutions from making distinctions based on biological sex.
He has co-sponsored a series of “bathroom bills“, a term with which Wagner wrongly takes issue as there is no doubt that these bills would grant by-right access for males calling themselves female to women’s restrooms and girls’ school sports.
Wagner has said that ending privacy for women (and girls) was not his intent and that he merely wants to stop LGBQWHATEVER people from being discriminated by business.
That’s almost as bad, Scott. The elimination of the concept of “protected groups” should be the goal of decent, thinking people, not their expansion.
Being a member of a “protected group” is not helpful. Business owners — as we’d expect you to understand — base the vast majority of hiring decisions on whether the employee will make life easier. Protected group membership is something that makes business owners walk on eggshells and that is, by far, the main reason protected group members face — understandable — discrimination.
Gays, who are not yet a protected group, certainly aren’t facing economic hardship in this country and that gets us to Tim Gill.
Gill is the mega-rich gay extremist who wants to “punish” those who question his lifestyle choices. This always means stifling debate about legitimate concerns and usually means personal destruction. He is a bad, corrupting man.
Morning Joe Feminist Anthem — In what may be the most nauseating occurrence of the new year, MSNBC host and Elvis (Costello) wannabe Morning Joe Scarborough has released an anthem for today’s anti-Republican “Women’s” March.
Wonder what wives 1 and 2, think about the hipster’s new-found feminism.
Scottevest Mocks Customers Or Idiocracy In Action — ScotteVest advertises heavily on Fox News and seems like a good idea. It’s a lot more practical, after all, to carry a smart phone in a vest pocket than one’s pants or purse, and this is equally true of things like wallets and keys.
So it was getting a lot of sales. It was by his own admission making founder and CEO Scott Jordan rich.
“I love meeting new people that recognize me and my company from all of our television commercials. I am on the ski lift and the following exchange just happened and happens often. I ask “what network they saw me?” Invariable people say FOXNews. I laugh to myself, and tell that that we primarily advertise on Fox because we find their viewership to be extremely gullible and much easier to sell than other networks. The look on their face at that time is priceless. I am not kidding you. I get to tell them they are f*cking idiots while getting rich off them.”
Beam me up Scotte. Real slick move there.
The rest of the corporation quickly went into damage control mode saying “In 2017, Mr. Jordan stepped down from the management of SCOTTeVEST and he is not involved in our daily operations. We are extremely sorry for his unacceptable comments. Mr. Jordan’s post was impulsive and inappropriate for too many reasons to list, and rightfully offended so many people.”
Just the same when the founder thinks only idiots would buy his product it does make one go hmmm.
Conservatives are far more likely to choose substance over style and, as noted, pocketed vests are practical so it makes sense for a vest maker to target conservatives. On the other hand it is equally true that ScotteVests are ugly as all. There is no reason one can’t have looks and practicality. Pick up a old suit vest at a thrift store. Make your own fashion statement. Go for the Mississippi gambler look. Yancy Derringer had taste. Eventually, someone in the clothing industry will get it right.
ScotteVest doesn’t deserve your business and Scott Jordan doesn’t deserve to be rich.
Season Reason Bugs HOA — A homeowners association in Gettysburg ordered Mark and Lynn Wivell to remove the word “Jesus” from a Christmas display.
HOAs are notorious for their enforcement of conformity and lack of respect for the wishes of the residents to personalize their abodes, still this association allowed for Christmas decorations.
A resident, though, apparently offended by the reason for the season, complained and the timid mice who run things danced to the complainer’s tune rather than let matters run their inevitable course namely the word’s removal in mid-January.
The Wivells say the plan on keeping the word as part of their display until the schedule time to take it down on Jan. 15.
Good for the Wivells. How about just following the principle that if someone is not hurting you just let them be?
Liberal Women Weak And Meek –For those who have long believed that liberal “progressive” Democrat-voting women were not “strong and independent” but weak, stupid, and easily cowed hypocrites, well, it looks your instincts were right.
Kathleen Wynne is the premier of Ontario. She is a lesbian, ultra-liberal and an outspoken feminist. After a mass shooting at a Quebec City mosque on Jan. 29 that left six dead and 19 injured — how did that happen anyway, don’t they have gun control in Canada?? — she decided to show solidarity by visiting a mosque in Toronto.
Josh Shapiro Opposes Vetting Plan — Pennsylvania’s Josh Shapiro is among the 16 state attorney generals who have have filed amici curiaebriefs in Washington’s and Minnesota’s federal lawsuits against the Trump Administration’s sensible and necessary executive order temporarily restricting those from seven terrorist-sponsoring nations.
CIA Hoaxed Reportedly And This is Scary — A denizen of the notorious internet chatboard 4chan figured he’d have some fun and cooked up a bizarre tale about Donald Trump doing something bizarrely obscene in a Russian hotel room once shared by President and Mrs. Obama.
He says he sent it off to NeverTrump Republican pundit Rick Wilson who not merely believed it but sent it to the CIA.
And they put it in an official classified intelligence report on Russian involvement in the election.
An internet joke. The CIA may have treated an internet joke as real intelligence.
If they told us a particular country had WMDs, should we trust them enough to invade?
President Trump is going to have some serious house cleaning to do with regard to our national “intelligence” services.
