This is only a portion of what is on the post.  Please go to the link to read more of what he thinks, I have already posted a bunch on this guy and think it is better to not let him get under my skin.  However I do think it is important to know what kind of person he is, what he thinks as he was a police officer and his attitude and his demeanor and his opinions do matter and influence how he behaves toward others.   Hugs

St. Louis Cop Retires On Full Pension Following Vile Homophobic Rant – VIDEO| Gay News | Towleroad.

Dan page

Dan Page, a St. Louis police officer who was last month suspended after a homophobic, racist, misogynist and Islamophobic video came to light, has retired on his full pension and benefits, reports New York.

Discussing what he sees as the persecution and prosecution of Christians in the U.S. today, Page said:

“There are three phases that a society goes through. One is persecution. That means your faith is being challenged, everybody mocks you, everybody ridicules you. They stand for nothing. If you stand against sodomy and abortion – you are a terrorist ladies and gentlemen. The next phase is prosecution. There’s a couple out there in New Mexico that are being prosecuted and put out of business and were arrested because they refused to take pictures of sodomites. What about my freedom of religion from that? And the military right now – you have open sodomy. People holding hands, swapping spit together. It’s sick. It’s pitiful.”

labor unions

"Strong, responsible unions are essential to industrial fair play.  Without them the labor bargain is wholly one-sided.  The parties to the labor contract must be nearly equal in strength if justice is to be worked out, and this means that the workers must be organized and that their organizations must be recognized by employers as a condition precedent to industrial peace." .. (Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis)

"History is a great teacher. Now everyone knows that the labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths, but history remembers them." .. (Martin Luther King Jr.)

I refuse to give this guy space on my blog for this guy to rant.  So I have posted a few excerpts and I have included a link.  Go to the link and watch and read his filth.    I am amazed that in our time of 2014 we still have his kind of backward thinking.  Plus the outright lying gets to me.  Hugs

Jody Hice on Religious Liberty – YouTube….the guy is a liar and speaks falsehoods.

Filed under: Bigotry, My Life and Rants, News, Political, Religion — Scottie @ 11:33

This guy and people like him are really scary to me.   he doesn’t understand the history of this country nor of the world.  He has no understanding the havoc that government dominated by religions do, but he should , look at ISIS and other conflicts all over the world due to religions running government.   He totally misrepresents, misstates and even lies about what our founding fathers and the people who came here wanted the country to be.  Lets be very clear, this was not a country founded to be a Christian country.  It was founded to get away from the forced religions or majority religions of the place the people came from.  They ran here to be free from others religions and they were not willing to entrench a religion in our constitution.  

This guy wants a theocracy ,not a democracy.    He insists on tolerance and complete acceptance of his faith, his church, his religion, however he vows to take away the freedom to not have faith or be religious.   If you do not want religion in your face, in your life, he has no tolerance for you.  I also notice while he passingly mentions we are a diverse country he has only included his religion as the protected one, there is not one mention of others.   Just judo-christian.  So if you don’t think like him, the laws of the country will be made against you.  He vows it.  

Last the pledge of allegiance.  I am simply stunned at the huge number of people who know nothing of this pledge and how it came about, how many versions there were.   There was even a special on it on the history channel.   The pledge was not something started the day we became a country.   The pledge we use now was rather recently introduced.  There have been other pledges, one even had the Nazi salute and was a pledge to the father land…yes scary.   The interesting thing is about that under god stuff…it was not in the original versions used for years.  In the 1950’s congress added it.   so it is not holy nor is it some country long tradition.   

The people who founded, fought for and wanted to make this country of ours, were people like us.  They wanted freedom to live their lives as best they could and be happy.   They wanted to do what made them happy with out too much government interference.   They understood the umbrella of needed government, but they wanted people to be free of dictators, kings, and religions.    Please watch the video and do what you can to correct the misconceptions and lies he uses.   Hugs

Anti-Gay Pastor And Likely GOP Congressman Quotes Gay Icon, Pretends Thomas Jefferson Said It – The New Civil Rights Movement

I read the whole thing, the page it is one, and I can tell you it is scary the way these people think.    They claim to have the moral high road, the holy way, yet they break every commandment, they lye , they cheat, and if need be to win they steal.  Please go read what this politician is about.   Hugs

Anti-Gay Pastor And Likely GOP Congressman Quotes Gay Icon, Pretends Thomas Jefferson Said It

Pastor Jody Hice, one of the most right-wing virulently anti-gay, anti-women, “religious” Republicans seeking a seat in Congress, just can’t get his quotes straight.

Jody Hice (image, right), who recently won his Republican primary, likely won’t have a hard time winning the open Congressional seat in November. The seat is in Georgia.

Hice first came to national attention when it was discovered he believes gay people have a secret plot to seduce and sodomize America’s sons and thinks same-sex marriage is akin to bestiality and incest. Hice has even compared abortion to the genocide waged by Adolph Hitler.

Clearly, facts are challenging for the Bible-thumping Tea Party pastor whose own 501(c)(3) non-profit airs his daily radio program, a troubling likely conflict of IRS regulations. But Hice couldn’t care less — he’s a founding member of the Pulpit Freedom movement that refuses to honor IRS rules that state tax-exempt organizations like churches cannot become overly political.

Meanwhile, Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski yesterday noticed yet another challenge Hice has with facts…………………………………………………….

people charged fees they should not be paying or required to pay

Filed under: News, Political — Scottie @ 10:35

I did not know this.  This is horrible and wrong.  We would say other countries doing this were punishing the people inappropriately.   I think it turns our system upside down and inside out.   I mean we are forcing people to pay money they don’t have and can’t make to stay in a place we put them and make them stay, wont let them out.    We give them no ability to reform or help them self and then we pile on requirements they have no say over and still take their money for, regardless that what we have done to them, labeled them make it hard for them to even work and make money.  Many conditions were not in place when they were sentenced, just added on because they are the ones few will champion.  We I will not be quiet while people are unfairly treated, as we all are flawed and all have problems.   They deserve the chance to over come theirs and have a second chance at a real, good life.  I am so glad someone reported this and I hope others will share any information they know about this.  Hugs

Recall All Republicans (As N.P.R. reported in May, services that “were…).

“As N.P.R. reported in May, services that “were once free, including those that are constitutionally required,” are now frequently billed to offenders: the cost of a public defender, room and board when jailed, probation and parole supervision, electronic monitoring devices, arrest warrants, drug and alcohol testing, and D.N.A. sampling. This can go to extraordinary lengths: in Washington state, N.P.R. found, offenders even “get charged a fee for a jury trial — with a 12-person jury costing $250, twice the fee for a six-person jury.””
