Laugh of the day.
From Its Just Politics:
"Finally, just to make all of this a little more high school: both sides say Governor Rick Snyder told them he's on their side. But the Governor's spokeswoman responded that that's not quite true; says he likes transparency, but he also supports free speech."Because speech is not free when its transparent?
Oh, and as for Ruth in 2014? They ask the question:
"Will Ruth Johnson pay a political price for her stance on disclosure? To seek reelection, she has to be nominated next year at a Republican convention. How will GOP delegates respond to this sort of renegade behavior?"If ANY Republican elites even suggested such a move, She would be well served to take her momentum that much more forward and shoot for Guv, where Mr 36% is extremely vulnerable.
It would be a far better state for it.

If anyone wishes to know how even using 'truthful' statements, an agenda through media can be moved forward, it is shown today in Traverse City's paper of record. I fully expect an upcoming editorial decrying such intolerance by elected officials,and perhaps even further, a call for a countywide ordinance not unlike the Traverse City ordinance recently passed.

Titled Commissioner: Pedophilia linked to Homosexuality - Comments made during official business visit, the article relates my calling "homosexuality a perversion" during a visit to the health department orientation. The visit was in the offices of Fred Keeslar, the health department director. The visit which had in attendance myself, Fred, and one other employee. A visit in which a number of things were discussed, including services we provide, the possibility of growth, and some data that demonstrated where we are (as a county) year to year in communicable diseases.
One of those diseases discussed was HIV.

There are indeed similarities between the way a pageant winner is treated, and the way our citizens are treated when they don't capitulate. However, it goes further, and can paint quite a picture when looking at the characters who use such things to move their agendas forward, and is especially telling within the political community.
The winner of the Miss California pageant was subjected to a litmus test of the "ruling elite" during the Miss USA event, when questioned in a way that was designed to corner her into assisting the normalization of the homosexual agenda. Her answer not only surprised the judge asking it, but infuriated gays who seek a confirmation that their lifestyles are acceptable. She spoke her convictions, and was punished with a loss ("punishment" a possibility) and a campaign against her reputation, including anything that could be dug up as "proof" she was some kind of hypocrite. (the campaign a reality)
