People Call Out Trump’s Hypocrisy On National Emergency With His Own Anti-Obama Tweet
HuffPost

The Twitter blowback over President Donald Trump’s plan to declare a nationalemergency to build his border wall has zeroed in on Trump’s own past tweetbashing then-President Barack Obama for “subverting” the Constitution with anexecutive action because he was “unable to negotiate with Congress.”Trump wrote that post in 2014 after Obama announced executive actions to crackdown on illegal immigration at the border while offering temporary legalstatus to more undocumented migrants already in the ..

KANSAS: Republican Bills Would Ban Same-Sex “Parody Marriage” And Define LGBTQ Rights As A Religion

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Fascism, Harm, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 08:50

Again!  Really!  Do we need to keep going through this.  When in history has it ever been the right thing to deny rights to groups of people?   Why is slavish devotion to myths from the iron age that are applied only to those groups they hate allowed to be enshrined in secular laws?  I am so tired of this crap.   Hugs

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/02/kansas-republican-bills-would-ban-same-sex-parody-marriage-and-define-lgbtq-rights-as-a-religion/

A group of state representatives in Kansas introduced legislation Wednesday that seeks to define same-sex marriage as “parody marriage,” stop the state from recognizing gay marriage and establish an “elevated marriage” option for straight couples who seek “higher standards of commitment.”

“Their marriage probably doesn’t affect me – their union or whatever you want to call it. But in my opinion, they’re trying to force their beliefs on society,” said Rep. Randy Garber, a Sabetha Republican and the bill’s lead sponsor.

Several paragraphs in the bill seek to describe differences between the civil rights movement and the gay rights movement. The bill says “there are no ex-blacks but there are thousands of ex-gays.”

Trump Installs Room-Sized Golf Simulator Game At WH

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/02/trump-installs-room-sized-golf-simulator-game-at-wh/

Trump’s system cost about $50,000, and was put in during the last few weeks in a room in his personal quarters, a White House official said.

President Trump has built his schedules around long blocks of “executive time” — unstructured periods in the day where the president’s schedules show no official meetings. He often spends this time watching TV, tweeting, holding impromptu meetings and making phone calls, aides have said.

President Obama reportedly had a similar but far less sophisticated golf simulator.

Popularity neither determines nor reflects veracity. What this means is that religions are no more inherently “true” than cults.

Missouri Planned Parenthood Set on Fire in Possible Hate Crime

If this was indeed a hate crime, it’s hard to know what the arsonist hoped to accomplish. It’s possible the person was so ignorant that he or she wrongly assumed the facility offered abortions. They don’t. In fact, there’s only one Planned Parenthood in the state that currently offers those services, and it’s in St. Louis.

Which means this criminal just tried torching a building that offers cancer screenings.

Good People Doing Good Things — Ruby Kate Chitsey

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 08:08

Jill again brought tears of joy to my eyes and some happiness to my heart. This grand young person could have been stuck in front of her own phone, tablet, or computer instead of giving one of the most precious gift we have to give, our time. She is making a difference that makes the world around her a better place, and is that not what all of us really want to have done by the time we are done here? Hugs

Filosofa's Word

A young lady, eleven-year-old Ruby Kate Chitsey, has popped up on my radar no less than three times in the past week, and with good reason.  Ruby’s mom, Amanda, is a nurse-practitioner who works in various nursing homes in and around their town of Harrison, Arkansas.  Whenever possible, Ruby accompanies her mom on her rounds several days a week.  I’ll let Ruby tell you in her own words what defining moment inspired her to begin her wondrous project …

“One day as my mom and I were leaving the nursing home, a patient named Pearl was glued to the exit doors staring for a long time at something. I figured whatever it was must be pretty exciting because I hadn’t seen anything exciting all day. So I hurried to catch up to her before whatever this was disappeared. I thought maybe it was a baby bird? A wreck in the…
