Lets Keep Our Eye on the Ball, Folks: THIS is the REAL Enemy’s Ultimate Goal

From the Houston Chronk:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott celebrated the Lone Star State on June 3, 2017, joining a call to hold a constitutional convention to rewrite the work of the United States’ Founding Fathers. The legislature joined 11 other states in passing a resolution calling for a “Convention of the States.”

The idea of a rumored transgender state registry is something that has some transgender and LGBT people worried.

Among rumored ideas in discussions to rework House Bill 2, is a certification program for people who undergo sex reassignment surgery, requiring them to register with the state to be able to use the public restrooms of their choice, according to State Rep. Chris Sgro, D-Guilford.

There has not been any confirmation of such a registry by leaders in the General Assembly.

Little known fact: The Wannsee Conference didn’t get much advance attention on Facebook.

Memo to Jeb ‘Brother of George W. Bush’ Bush

Sept. 11, 2001 was almost eight full months after Jan. 20, 2001.

If you don’t care about that fact, then you’re unfit to hold public office.

If you don’t understand it, then you’re not sufficiently competent to hold public office.

Juno vs. the Jerk

From Queer Channel Media:

“X-Men” and “Juno” lesbian actress Ellen Page challenged Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on LGBT rights Friday during the Iowa State Fair, grilling him on the issue of anti-LGBT workplace discrimination.

And, of course, the Cuban-Canadian Cruz mansplained to a woman who is (1) honest about being Canadian, (2) makes her living in the private sector, and (3) has not spent a majority of her adult life in the employ of various government entities:

“I’m happy to answer your question but not to have a back-and-forth debate,” Cruz told Page.

Because the next post-Reconstruction Republican who can win an honest debate will be the first.

The Vaseline Incident

…probably would have been a better name for a certain Guns N’ Roses album.

He has attacked, in over-the-top style, Maine’s most vulnerable and stigmatized populations time and time again. He has ignited divisiveness and spread ignorance fueled hatred across our state in the name of blind, backwards policy that helps the wealthy and hurts the poor.

In countless instances since he took office in 2010, LePage has offended us, disgusted us, infuriated us, and mocked us. He has displayed complete incivility and intolerance, and embraced the role of the unabashed, bull-headed, right-wing mouthpiece to the point where he made those traits cornerstones of his re-election bid.

Yet when confronted by an activist from the other side of the aisle who’s found the courage to look him square in the eye and give him a dose of his own medicine, he suddenly found himself speechless, as is the case with most typical bullies.

And its the perfect name for something that was recently served up to Paul LePage, who, among Republican governors, is Chris Christie minus the compassion and morality.
