Bad Thoughts, Bad Words, Bad Deeds

The ones who fawn over Trump need to be reflected upon.  If the media didn’t bleep such profanity on television news they would get backlash from offended people. But those same people are not similarly offended that the profane utterances are from Trump himself!  That is the type of people the rest of us need to contend with, and try to not laugh and gag over at the same time.

On racial tension, Walker sees ignorance as bliss

“In other words, acknowledging systemic problems like the documented wave of police killings of unarmed black men, or the racial wealth gap, or disparities in sentencing and incarceration, creates “discord.” During the GOP debate, he similarly dodged a question about the Black Lives Matter movement, which even Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly called “the biggest civil rights issue of our…

Indeterminable

I don’t know how popular that “true gender mix” test is, but it can’t possibly give you an answer to that question. Quite aside from whether there is such a thing as your true gender mix, if you know it’s a true-gender-mix test, your answers will be tainted by whatever it is you want to be. And just from the fine print in that “70% Female” result, you can see that the test is designed to lure males into identifying as female. Female apparently means “kind and understanding.” If you strain to be seen as 100% male — if that’s what you want to be — you’re going to be told in the end that you’re a dick.

Delavan

“Coming from the town of Plainfield, Iowa, with fewer than 500 people, Walker has said he saw Delavan as the “big city” when his family moved there in 1977…. The area’s Latino population has grow[n] exponentially since around that time. Only 7% in 1980, it climbed to 11% in 1990, then 21% in 2000 and…

I headed to the entry way of our home upon hearing the news this morning about the ruling from the Supreme Court about my right to marry the person I love. Days ago my partner James, who is the neighborhood vexillologist, pulled from his collection the colorful gay pride flag and had it neatly folded on a trunk, ready for the day the ruling would come down. I picked it up and walked briskly outside knowing that this ruling, will without a doubt, be the most profound action the court will ever have on my life….

Walker Upset with High Court

Gov. Scott Walker on Friday called the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing gay marriage across the country “a grave mistake.”

Walker issued a lengthy statement on Facebook backing an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow states to define marriage and calling the ruling “judicial activisim.”
