 I say how dare she bring such a sign to the Women’s March. Just think what the political and religious right can do with that sign. She shows to me that she is in bed with them and not the queer / trans community friend or comrade. She is a divider not a person who is interested in forming a united front against the political / religious right, trump, his boys and this dirty rotten system.  She think she is cute. Well she is not. I wish someone had grabbed her sign an ripped it up. She is a pawn for the right. I wish she had been at the same march as us. We would have told her off. Can’t say we would have knocked her cold as that would not be very nice. But you know once this shit from the right really gets rolling there will be no time for silly signs such as this. No time for such people who are in the way of the new day. Off her some would say. We can only say we are glad she doesn’t live near us. Glad she wasn’t near us. There is a war going on and I intend to fight for all of my people. The person in the photo need not apply. She sleeps with the bosses. She sleeps with those who would be delighted if they could get rid of us. No she is not our friend and not our comrade.

I will never forget back at NYC PRIDE in 1973 when folks like her tried to boo our sister Sylvia Rivera off the stage. Some of us tried hard to fight back. All I could think was how dare they. How dare they do this to one of our revolutionary sisters. How dare they do this to one of our liberation warriors. How dare they do this to our trans sister who had always been out front in the fight when some of these white suburban gays and lesbians where just coming out.

In 1999 as a member of the Ct. Stonewall Foundation and Congress I had the privilege of introducing Sylvia at our forum. Nasty letters had been circulating via the G & L rag the Metroline denouncing drag queens, trans folks and the Bi-community. We were honored to bring Sylvia to town who spoke to a crowd. Somewhere out there in You Tube land is a video of me introducing Sylvia and her speech. All in all what I want to say is that for me whenever I hear a knocking from our people I fight like hell to open the door. I stand up against anyone who tries to bring our trans sisters and brothers down. ( I don’t give a rats ass who they are as I can make noise with the best.) You try to tell us shit like the women in the photo. Nah, I don’t sit down for it. I stand up and fight. I thought that someday it would get better. Well it hasn’t.

Simon Dudley, Local Council Leader Windsor

“Clear beggars from streets of Windsor ahead of royal wedding,” says local council leader

 

Beggars have made a life choice and should be cleared from the streets of Windsor ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, the leader of the local council has said.
Comments by Tory councilor Simon Dudley, from the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, were branded “abhorrent” yesterday ahead of the royal wedding there next May.
Cllr Dudley said beggars could present the town in a “sadly unfavorable light”, and tweeted that some rough sleepers had made a “commercial life choice praying on residents and tourists”.

In a letter to police he complained about “aggressive begging and intimidation” and “bags and detritus” on the streets. His comments were criticized by a local homeless charity manager, who described them as “sickening”.

Murphy James, of Windsor Homeless Project, said: “It’s absolutely abhorrent that anybody has got these views in this day and age, especially a lead councilor of the borough.
“If somebody is sleeping out on the street they are not there by choice, they are there because something has gone wrong.” Mr. James described it as “sickening” that Mr. Dudley cited the royal wedding as a reason for his comments.

It came after Mr. Dudley tweeted that there is “an epidemic of rough sleeping and vagrancy” in the town and demanded police “focus on dealing with this before the #RoyalWedding”. He also wrote a letter to Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley Police, Anthony Stansfeld, dated January 2, calling on officers to take action.

He said police should use their powers under the 1824 Vagrancy Act and the Anti-Social Behavior, Crime and Policing Act 2014 to “protect residents and tourists”.
Mr. Stansfeld said he was “somewhat surprised” the letter was released publicly before being “sent directly to me”, and said he would provide Cllr Dudley with a full response in due course.

We have an idea. Since the Queen owns so many homes how about giving one up to the homeless of Windsor. Now that would be a nice tradition and a wonderful wedding gift to the people.

There are so many but Jim Ziegler, Alabama’s State Auditor takes the prize.

Here is the big pig now.

We used a rather small picture as that is what this man is. Why is he the Big Jerk of the year. Well here goes.

‘Mary Was a Teenager.’ Alabama Republican Uses Jesus to Defend Roy Moore

“While some Republicans at the national level spoke out against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday in the wake of allegations that he initiated sexual contact with a 14-year-old when he was in his 30s, Republicans from his own state seemed to have a different view — with one citing Jesus’ parents to defend Moore’s alleged behavior.

“Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus,” Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler told the Washington Examiner on Thursday.
Four women have told the Washington Post that Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was an adult. The women were between the ages of 14 and 18, while Moore was in his 30s at the time, according to the Post.”

For the full story go to MSN HERE.

Hey stupid that bit with Mary and Joseph was up to God. Joseph had nothing to do with it.  Ray Moore is just a nasty pedophile among many other things, is not God nor is he Joseph.

When will we end this nonsense.

You know we hadn’t had a Jerk Of All Times Award up until today when we saw this article:

Republican Blurts Out That Sick People Don’t Deserve Affordable Care

Some one should take this man to the woodshed. We are sure that many among us would think of some better things to do with this jerk but this being a nice respectable family blog we shant say it. Here he is folks, one fucking big asshole jerk for all times.

Republican Reprehensible  Mo Brooks of Alabama

and here is what the big jerk said:

Republicans usually defend their health-care position with an array of buzzwords like choice, patient-centric, or competition. In a CNN interview, Representative Mo Brooks, an Alabama Republican, makes the case for Trumpcare in much starker terms: It will free healthy people from having to pay the cost of the sick. “It will allow insurance companies to require people who have higher health care costs to contribute more to the insurance pool that helps offset all these costs, thereby reducing the cost to those people who lead good lives, they’re healthy, they’ve done the things to keep their bodies healt explained Brooks. “And right now, those are the people who have done things the right way that are seeing their costs skyrocketing.”

It is certainly true that the Republican health-care plan will spur insurance companies to charge more money to people with expensive medical needs, and less to healthier people. (It will also transfer hundreds of billions of dollars from the poor, who will get reduced Medicaid and tax credits to buy insurance, to the rich, who will receive a large tax cut.) The idea that morality dictates healthy people pay less, and sick people more, has been floating around the margins of conservative health-care thought. John Mackey, the libertarian owner of Whole Foods, made this case in a 2009 Wall Street Journal op-ed denouncing Obamacare:

Rather than increase government spending and control, we need to address the root causes of poor health. This begins with the realization that every American adult is responsible for his or her own health.

Unfortunately many of our health-care problems are self-inflicted: two-thirds of Americans are now overweight and one-third are obese. Most of the diseases that kill us and account for about 70% of all health-care spending—heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and obesity—are mostly preventable through proper diet, exercise, not smoking, minimal alcohol consumption and other healthy lifestyle choices.

When Democratic Senator Tom Harkin in 2010 proposed that it was time to stop segregating Americans on the basis of health status, the conservative health-care analyst Jeffrey H. Anderson scoffed, “Having people pay their own way is apparently an injustice akin to segregating them by race or creed.”

Of course, you can’t pay your own way if you’re too poor or sick to afford your own projected medical costs. Indeed, sometimes people who are healthy at the moment find one day they are not, or they have a sick child, or maybe they simply want to have a baby. (The cost of bearing children is another one Republicans want to be borne entirely by those doing it.) The Republican plan expresses one of the core beliefs shared by movement conservatives, and utterly alien to people across the globe, right and left: that people who can’t afford the cost of their own medical care have nobody to blame but themselves.

Notes:

  1. One thing for certain when enough people get sick and tired of folks like Mo Brooks there will be and heaven help them all such a just uprising and the big push them out of the way will happen. Mo Brooks many have your number and many more will we promise you. You know its a sad day when folks can not lend a hand to those who are down and out, to those who are sick and to those who need help. This is greed and if there is a god it is certain that this type of greed is purely wrong and shall be dealt with.
  2. Like other large employers, the government pays a large share of the cost of coverage. On average, the government pays 72 percent of the premiums for its workers, up to a maximum of 75 percent depending on the policy chosen. For example, the popular Blue Cross and Blue Shield standard fee-for-service family plan carries a total premium of $1,327.80 per month, of which the beneficiary pays $430.04. Washington, D.C.-based employees who prefer an HMO option might choose the Kaiser standard family plan. It carries a total premium of $825.15 per month, of which the employee pays only $206.29.
    In addition, members of Congress also qualify for some medical benefits that ordinary federal workers do not. They (but not their families) are eligible to receive limited medical services from the Office of the Attending Physician of the U.S. Capitol, after payment of an annual fee ($491 in 2007). But services don’t include surgery, dental care or eyeglasses, and any prescriptions must be filled at the member’s expense.
    House and Senate members (but not their families) also are eligible to receive care at military hospitals. For outpatient care, there is no charge at the Washington, D.C., area hospitals (Walter Reed Army Medical Center and National Naval Medical Center). Inpatient care is billed at rates set by the Department of Defense…Fact Check.Org. HERE.
  3. The Average Joe of Congress (there are 529 of them) gets paid $174,000 per year. But not everyone is average; the Speaker of the House gets $223,500 a year, while the majority and minority leaders of both the Senate and the House, along with the President Pro Tempore, get paid $193,400 per year…for more on this see HERE.

Remember the Jerk of the Week who sprayed painted anti-trump graffiti but is really a trump supporter. Well here is a bit more on the biggest jerk who we continue to say should have the book thrown at him. This article is taken from the Hartford Courant as written by Mikaela Porter and published on July 5, 2017 on line.

West Hartford Man told police anti-trump graffiti at school was out of anger towards liberals.

The West Hartford man who police said wrote profane and threatening anti-Trump graffiti at Morley Elementary School on June 15 has been ordered to stay off the property.

Hartford Community Court judge Tammy Geathers said Wednesday that Steven Marks, 32, is to stay off the Bretton Road school property and continued his case to Aug. 2.

Prosecutor Tom O’Brien said Marks has a clean record but asked the judge to continue the case so he could reach out to the Town of West Hartford and discuss restitution for the graffiti. He said Marks has arranged to meet with a social worker in West Hartford as well.

West Hartford Police on June 19 released a 28-second surveillance video clip showing a bald, white man wearing a dark blue Boston Red Sox t-shirt with khaki shorts riding a bicycle onto the Morley playground accompanied by a white and brown dog, identifying the man as the suspect. In the video clip, the suspect appears to write something on a sign located on the playground. The video was time stamped at about 10:30 p.m. on June 15.

Marks told police on June 19 he vandalized the property “out of ‘anger towards liberals and they are breaking major laws everyday and being disrespectful towards our government,'” according to the warrant for his arrest. He told police it was his hope that the vandalism would appear to have been done by the “Left.” (more…)
