In my psychiatric practice, we refer to disordered personalities such as Jack Dennis, joneses, etc. as ‘deranged demagogues’ or ‘self-opinionated’. The more you resist or try to counter-act their delusions, the more combative they become.
We too have the right to not patronize a bigoted establishment. Bet Chick-fil-A wishes this month would end. Over the past few weeks, the restaurant chain's deep ties to the anti-gay movement have been exposed and uncovered by a number of activists, most notably Jeremy Hooper at Good As You. Whether it's Focus on the Family, the National Organization for Marriage, the Pennsylvania Family Institute, or Exodus International, Chick-fil-A ties run deep.
Of course, the President of Chick-fil-A wants gay people to share no hard feelings. The restaurant will gladly feed homosexuals gobs of chicken sandwiches, after all. But when it comes to marriage, Chick-fil-A believes strongly that same-sex couples just don't deserve equal rights.
As we wrote about a few weeks ago, Chick-fil-A's charitable arm, the WinShape Foundation, has been particularly active in the fight against marriage equality. They've hosted conferences with some of the leading opponents of gay marriage in this country. A higher up at WinShape has even praised the efforts of anti-gay activist David Blankenhorn for working against marriage equality, and for articulating a solid reason why American culture should reject same-sex couples.
Now comes some email correspondence that Good As You has shared on their blog, where the WinShape Foundation's Retreat Center -- a center run by the charitable arm of Chick-fil-A -- admits that they have a severe distaste for LGBT people.
As for the 'big bang', I liked the cartoon from a few days ago - the flying mccoys theory no. 37: Pull my fimger!
Rickarooeieio - Best one yet! But whar is that thar joez barr?
Riverslime You are so articulate and sensitive. BTW, does yo mama ever let you out of that pig sty basement to feed that idiotic brain cell you claim to have?
A Brief History Lesson:
Lost History, Lost Values: How Remembering Armed Birds and Dancing Horses Will Save America
Posted by Gen. JC Christian, Patriot
A lot of the dislike for Elder Romney and our patriots in Congress is based on an ignorance of our history. People just don't know things like how the Constitution's General Welfare Clause was written to ensure the welfare of generals and not to improve the overall condition of the people.
I aim to change that by digging up our forgotten history and sharing it with you. I hope you'll pass this knowledge along via your chain email networks and help me bring the rest of America back up to speed.
Today, we'll begin with a little early American history.
Letter from a soldier writing from Valley Forge:
We were cold, hungry, exhausted and dispirited, but when Gen. Washington declared, "Your travails are nothing when compared to those who are denied the right to abuse their dogs by tying them atop wagons," we rose to our frostbitten feet as a unit and cheered.
From Samual Adams's journal:
We unanimously adopted Ben Franklin's motion to protest the Stamp Act by hiding our money in the Caymans.
From the transript of the congressional debate over passage of the Second Amendment:
Rep. Baldwin: The phrase, "A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State...," obviously applies to defense against scary, dark, hoody-wearers of Moorish complexion. There is no need to make this measure even more convoluted and confounding than it already is by adding a concept that is already implicitly expressed. It would be nothing less than...there is no English word that expresses such an ignorant exercise in redundancy, so I shall coin one here and call it communist--It would be nothing less than communist to do so.
Letter found on the body of Jebediah Sprinfield who died at the Battle of Yorktown:
..and should I fall, do not mourn my passing for I shall have given my life for our children's god-given right to receive tax deductions for their dancing horses.
Letter from James Madison to his wife, Dolly:
I agree with you, my dearest Dolly. You have my authority to manage the slaves as you wish, but as for your womb, I shall manage it from here until I return. A womb is much too valuable a treasure to be entrusted to a woman's care. It's one of the reasons so many gave their lives to achieve our nation's independence.
From the transcript of the congressional debate over passage of the First Amendment:
Rep. Clymer: "By 'there shall not be a an establishment of religion' we mean an establishment by the Jews, Mohammedans, papists, or any future religion founded by anyone who claims Indians are Jews and Jesus gave him Golden Plates. Do we all agree on that? [consent given by all present] OK then, let's move on to the discussion about how calling someone a bigot violates their free practice of religion.
I can tell by the astute comments made by joneses and toes02800 they know far more about this bill than meets the eye. I wish I was privy to your inside knowledge. I do know this country is #1 in what it spends on health insurance, and #37 in the in the results obtained by that flawed system. But if you want to continue paying the hospital bills of those that don't want to buy it because they truly believe they'll never need it or just plain can't afford it. Go for it.
I'm truly inspired by the repukes on here that are so irritated that now through their insurance premiums they won't be paying for every poor soul that wanders into an emergency room for expensive treatment, paid by for you and me that have insurance. That is truly benevolent. But, if you would put your irrational hatred aside and read what is TRULY in this bill, you would be like 82% of Americans that like all the provisons, now get this, they just don't like the name THEY gave it. As your mother who has maxed out her lifetime coverage on cancer care. Or a child that comes into this world with a god-forbid pre-existing condition that insurance companies, heretofore, could just say no, we don't have to cover you. Get you heads out all the lies about what's in this bill and learn something for ONCE in your lives. Those that cannot afford it will be allowed a 'tax' (ooooooooooohboooogeyboooogey) break. Those that do have the means but want to wait until they wind up in an emergency room on your dime, will pay a trivial 'tax', which by the way is not even ewnforceable.
You can always tell the Faux News and ConservitiveNonNews watchers. They display their ignorance on this board daily. You can scream your lies all you want to shifforbrains, but we don't hear you!!!!!!!!!!
