Why does a political party and those who favor its ideology make ridiculous choices that reinforce its lousy image of the mean-spirited party of NO!?
“Catch An Illegal Immigrant” Game Planned For University Of Texas
Lorenzo Garcia, chairman of the Young Conservatives of Texas, announced the game will involve students tracking down other students tagged as “illegal immigrants” in exchange for $25 gift cards.
The Young Conservatives of Texas, led by Lorenzo Garcia who once interned with, guess who? Ted Cruz, canceled this hideous idea after attracting so much negativity and scorn. But the question is what inspired this lamebrain idea in the first place? Was it a plan to attract approval and praise from Uncle Ted?
On to Oklahoma and another Republican politician who believes in making people's lives miserable as a solution to laws she doesn't like:
"Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) announced earlier this month that state-owned National Guard facilities will no longer allow any married couples to apply for spousal benefits, regardless of whether they are same-sex or opposite-sex.
The Supreme Court’s decision overturning the Defense of Marriage Act means that servicemembers with same-sex spouses are now eligible for federal benefits. Fallin’s unusual tactic is designed to avoid having to recognize those couples, which she asserts would violate Oklahoma’s constitutional amendment limiting marriage to one man and one woman:
FALLIN: Oklahoma law is clear. The state of Oklahoma does not recognize same-sex marriages, nor does it confer marriage benefits to same-sex couples. The decision reached today allows the National Guard to obey Oklahoma law without violating federal rules or policies. It protects the integrity of our state constitution and sends a message to the federal government that they cannot simply ignore our laws or the will of the people.
This decision directly contradicts an order from Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordering states to provide same-sex couples with the federal benefits they deserve under the law."
Hey Gov. Fallin, how is this nasty piece of deception protecting the rights of the minorities in your state? In order to impose Oklahoma's majority's dislike of marriage equality, you will now use that anti-gay sentiment to punish ALL deserving National Guard families? That way, the not-gay families can blame not receiving their benefits on the same-spouse couples? Is that how you're working this?
PS. This is another wretched move on the part of a political party that seems to relish hurting people, even those who serve their country.
Oklahoma again? Oy!
And let's not forget this:
And the Tea Party extremists continue their treasonous blather.
This time unhindered on social media:
We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him. His willful violations and alienation of our Constitution, constant disregard for our peaceful protests and corruption of all the three branches of government, (i.e., rogue and illegitiimate government), reveal the dictator that he is. Obama and his co-conspirators disrespect our Constitution (constitutional rule of law) and abuse the Americ...
