Hmm, Lady Gaga Sings The Star-Spangled Banner at NYC Gay Pride Event … “Land of the Free, and the Home for the Gay”
SHAMEFUL … You know, I do not care what side of the gay marriage debate you are on, I do care that you show respect for the Star Spangled Banner.
Why does the following not surprise me at all? Lady Gaga sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” to kick off New York City’s gay pride celebration Friday night by changing the lyrics to pander to the folks in the crowd that were celebrating the Supreme Court’s two recent gay marriage rulings. The ever-controversial singer sang the following while clenching a “rainbow” gay flag, “Oh say does that star-spangled flag of pride yet wave” and then disrespectfully changed the lyrics to … “O’er the land of the free, and the home for the gay”.
And they wonder why some folks have an issue? You just can’t keep it classy. You claim you want equality, but you take every opportunity to conduct yourselves in an unconventional and provoking manner. You were not pledging your allegiance and proudly singing the anthem to the American flag, you were doing to to the gay flag. Sorry, but I do believe the definition of marriage is that between one man and one woman, as it has been for thousands of years. I think it should be a state’s right to chose. However, that being said, what ever your believe is, is your belief. But do not think that you can force others to believe what they do not. Marriage is more than the common benefits one gets because of being married, that is a perversion of marriage that government has inflicted upon us. No one should get any more or less benefits, entitlements, tax breaks, etc whether they are married or not. However, there is one thing that I do demand and that is that you respect the United States National Anthem and the Star Spangled Banner.
Hmm, Is This Considered Incest … Gay 65 Year Old Man Adopts His 73 Year Old Partner as His Son to Avoid High Pennsylvania Inheritance Tax
Just curious, why isn’t the following considered incest?
Here is one way for Gays to circumvent the law, adopt your partner as your son. A 65 year old man has adopted his 75 year old partner of 44 years as his son in order to avoid the high Pennsylvania inheritance tax. Pennsylvania only recognizes marriage as being between a man and a woman and presently has no provisions for civil unions. So in order to avoid the 15% death tax if either was to pass, the younger John adopted his 75 year old partner as his son. With the adoption, they can now will each other their assets with only a 4% tax. Huh, imagine that, the dad is 10 years younger than his son. The reason why the younger man adopted the older was because the older mans father was still alive. You can’t have two primary fathers, now that would be just wrong, wouldn’t it. (sarcasm intended)
A man in Pennsylvania has adopted his partner of 44 years to circumvent high property taxes that would be imposed on either of the men if the other dies.
John, 65, and his partner Gregory*, 75, made the decision to become father and son to avoid a 15 per cent tax on any property and assets willed to one if the other should die – a much higher tax than married spouses or family members are required to pay.
The state of Pennsylvania, where the men reside, recognizes marriage as being only between a man and a woman and has no provision for civil unions at this time.
Wait a minute, so the gay lovers are now father and son and cohabiting is a sexual relationship? Isn’t that the definition of incest? From how the story reads, the judge who resided over the adoption knew that the two were gay and even asked what was the purpose of the adoption. Thus, the judge knew the soon to be father and son were lovers and cared less. Sorry, but according to the law what these two are now doing breaks the incest law in the Keystone state. Isn’t it just amazing how have a legal system that overlooks the laws on the books for some, but not for others.
§ 4302. Incest.
A person is guilty of incest, a felony of the second degree,
if that person knowingly marries or cohabits or has sexual
intercourse with an ancestor or descendant, a brother or sister
of the whole or half blood or an uncle, aunt, nephew or niece of
the whole blood. The relationships referred to in this section
include blood relationships without regard to legitimacy, and
relationship of parent and child by adoption.
(Nov. 17, 1989, P.L.592, No.64, eff. 60 days; Mar. 31, 1995, 1st
Sp.Sess., P.L.985, No.10, eff. 60 days)
Another question that needs to be asked, how many people get denied adaption who are doing it for noble reason, not to circumvent the law? Doesn’t it seem a bit odd that the courts would allow a fraud to be perpetrated? The intent of adoption is not to circumvent the law. So if gays can’t get married, they just adopt each other? Huh. Although it would appear that this judge had no issue in granting the adoptions as he was told the truth as to why it was occurring.
The couple’s lawyer told the couple that they wouldn’t be required to tell the judge their sexual orientation or the nature of their relationship, but John worried the judge would ask, and he’d have to tell the truth under oath.
The judge, as it happened, did ask. ‘He said, “I am really curious, why are you adopting [Gregory]?”‘
‘I said, “Because it’s our only legal option to protect ourselves from Pennsylvania’s inheritance taxes,” said John. ‘He got it immediately.’
After signing the papers, the judge turned to John and said, ‘Congratulations, it’s a boy.’
How in the did a judge allow an adoption to go forward that would allow incest to occur and basically make a joke out of it? What would happen if a man and a woman did the same thing and were lovers? Would it be looked upon so favorably be the law?
PC Police Have Gone Too Far … New NYC Bill Would Prevent Police from Describing a Suspect or Face Being Sued for Profiling
The “PC” police completely lose their minds … Why don’t we just handcuff the police, it would seem they were just blindfolded.
The police are supposed to protect and serve, Justice is supposed to be blind. In NYC they are looking to pass a bill that would prevent police from accurately describing a suspect by age, gender, color or disability or face being sued for profiling. Unbelievable. So the police are supposed to protect and serve us while being blindfolded. How is this political correctness supposed to help catch a criminal? Are we to understand that a teen, dark complexion Hispanic man with one arm robs a gas station and the police are going to put out a BOLO for all males? Oops, not supposed to reference gender. Or a blonde, white girl in her 40′s abducts a baby and the police are supposed to be looking for all woman? This is beyond absurd. It is already illegal to racially profile; however, how is not properly describing a suspect of a crime a benefit to everyone? Get this, from the morons proposing the bill … “They have said police are free, under the bill, to chase leads that include descriptions but cannot stop and frisk people based solely on those descriptions.” Because why would anyone want to stop, frisk and question a suspect that specifically fits the description of the individual who committed the crime? For the LEFT, it would seem that preventing the police form doing their jobs is more important that protecting the public.
Cops might as well wear blindfolds if the City Council passes a bill that would let them use little more than the color of a suspect’s clothing in descriptions — or risk being sued for profiling, according to this provocative new ad (pictured) from the NYPD captains union.
The ad asks, “How effective is a police officer with a blindfold on?”
And the answer is not very, says the NYPD Captains Endowment Association, which is fighting the measure, claiming it would handcuff cops and send crime rates soaring.
Union President Roy Richter — who is seen in the ad wearing a blindfold in Times Square — told The Post the bill is dangerous because “it will ban cops from identifying a suspect’s age, gender, color or disability.
Haven’t these politicians seen ‘The Fugitive’? It was the one armed man who committed the crime. Has this country lost its mind?
Elon University/Charlotte Observer Poll Has Romney in the Lead over Obama 47% to 43% in North Carolina … 30,000 Names of Dead People Still Registered to Vote in NC
A new poll in North Carolina by the Elon University/Charolotte Observer has GOP candidate Mitt Romney in the lead over President Barack Obama 47% to 43%. Sorry, but even with the Democrat National Convention being held in NC this week, there is no way that Obama is winning the Tar Heel state in 2012. Obama won North Carolina in 2008 by the slimiest of margins. Obama is hard pressed to win NC, especially since he went against their same sex marriage law and especially black churches voiced their outrage.
The new Elon University/Charlotte Observer Poll shows the GOP presidential candidate leading President Barack Obama 47 percent to 43 percent in North Carolina.
The poll, which has a margin of error of 3 percentage points, surveyed likely voters from Aug. 25-30, during the GOP convention in Tampa. Elon did the poll in partnership with the Observer and the News & Observer of Raleigh.
No way that Obama wins North Carolina.With unemployment in NC higher than the national average and the fact that the banking industry is huge in the state. That same banking industry that Barack Obama demonizes. Oh and how comical and hypocritical is it that Obama will be giving his speech in the Bank of America Stadium where the Carolina Panthers play.
Then again, there is always the Democrat constituency of the “Dead” vote. Ever wonder why we need voter ID laws? The following is 30,000 reason why. As the Gateway Pundit opines, you know what they say, 9 out of 10 dead voters vote Democrat.
A Raleigh-based group devoted to reducing the potential for voter fraud presented the N.C. Board of Elections on Friday with a list of nearly 30,000 names of dead people statewide who are still registered to vote.
The Voter Integrity Project compiled the list after obtaining death records from the state Department of Public Health from 2002 to March 31 and comparing them to the voter rolls.
Rick Warren Tweets: @dancathy just called me. #ChickFilA has already set a world record today … As the Left Shows the Hypocrisy of Their Hate
Rick Warren tweeted that Dan Cathy, the CEO of Chick-Fil-A, called him and said that they had already set a world record toda for food sales and there was still 7 hours to go out in the West. Honestly, it does not surprise me at all. The one’s the I frequented today and passed by were a zoo. There were traffic jams at every location and people standing in line as if waiting to go on an amusement park ride at Disney World. At one location I stopped at today, they had served 10,000 customers. A note to the intolerant LEFT, backlash is a bitch. Today, waiting in line for a Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich in support of free speech, in November it will be waiting in line to take our country back.
Mike Huckabee is amazed at the outpouring and a victory for ‘We the People”
Christians are allowed freedom of speech as well and many are tired of the Anti-Christian sentiment
and attempted censorship of commerce because they disagreed with someone’s opinion.
As Hot Air opined, Somewhere, a Burger King ad man’s toying with the idea of having “The King” declare himself “100% pro-life.” We might want to ad a pro-second amendment “Red Haired” little girl with pony tails as well.
Not a word about today’s activities has been whispered on Chick-fil-A’s feed even though CFA has been trending on Twitter off and on all day. As noted in the earlier post, the suspicion is that the company’s lying low about what’s happening in order to extricate itself from the front line of the culture war, but I wonder if today’s outpouring will draw some sort of recognition tomorrow. If Dan Cathy’s willing to tout the numbers to Rick Warren, presumably an official acknowledgment and thank you is on the way.
I would have to say that because of such a tremendous outpouring of support today by “We the People”, CFA is going to have to make some sort of announcement. When they do, the numbers are going to be staggering.
What the Left and the Gay community does not understand is your hypocrisy makes people ill. You are the first to cry hate speech and discrimination, yet it is you who spews vile hate and intolerance. Like this moonbat, hate filled Leftist (VIDEO) calling others hateful when he is a perfect example of what hate is all about.
Chick-Filet-A Appreciation Day a Resounding Success … Supporters Come Out in Force of Free Speach & Traditional Marriage
Eat Mor Chikin … You Betcha!!!
For those gay activists that thought they were going to protest Chick-Filet-A for the restaurant owners free speech comments have awoke a sleeping, silent majority. Today was Chick-Filet-A Appreciation Day and let me just say wow, what a resounding success.
Huge crowd across America came out in support of Chick-Filet-A today as supporters of the restaurant voiced their right of free speech with their wallets and presence. Every Chick-Filet-A had patrons in endless lines waiting to order stretching out the doors and around the building. Cars waited in lines that wound around the restaurant, into streets. It was simply amazing.
It used to be that taking a bite of a chicken sandwich just meant you were hungry. Now it has become a symbol of whether you stand for or against same-sex marriage, or – alternately – the right to express your personal views without fear of retaliation.
At Chick-fil-A locations across the country, people voted with their wallets today, coming out to express support for the fast-food chain after CEO Dan Cathy said in an interview that he is a firm backer of traditional marriage.
“I believe what the Bible says (about marriage),” Chauncy Fields told us after wolfing down a breakfast of chicken and biscuits. “So I came out here to support Chick-fil-A and the movement.”
On a personal note, today I passed by five Chick-Filet-A restaurants during the morning hours, lunch time and this evening. OMG, the cars and people were everywhere waiting patiently in line to order their food and show their support for CEO Dan Cathy, Chick-Fil-A, free speech and traditional marriage. I went out for lunch today to go to Chick-Fil-A to show my support and there were so many cars as far as the eye could see wrapped around the building twice and into the adjacent mall parking lot. Needless to say, I had to pass. However, this evening on the way home I stopped at one closer to home and guess what, at 8 pm the line was still just as long as it was during lunch. Many items were actually sold out. The supporters basically were asking the servers, just give me anything you have left, we are here in support of you. A Chick-Fil-A in West Nashville, TN was reported to have closed early because they literally ran out of all food.
Make no mistake about this Gay America and those misguided politicians who attacked an individual for his free speech and called him and his restaurant bigoted. Do you hear yourself? Do you people ever look in the mirror? It isn’t just Gay individuals, liberals, Muslims and PC folks that have a right of free speech, guess what, so do Christians. You don’t get to threaten people for their opinions. But of course there were the cowards that called in bomb threats in a feeble attempt to stop the outpouring of support. Guess what, you failed! To the corrupt politicians, you certainly do not get to prevent individuals from opening businesses in your cities. You have the nerve to call others bigoted and make accusations of discrimination. What is it exactly that you think you are doing?As for Friday’s “kiss-in”, the Lonely Conservative is correct, the crowds will be much less, but look for the liberal MSM to make it appear larger than reality. Does anyone really think that a “kiss-in” is going to change minds? Seriously, I don’t care to see hetero’s PDA in a restaurant, what makes you special!
Maybe one of the best titles of a post of the day comes from The Other McCain, I Love The Smell Of #ChickFilA At Noon. It Smells Like. . .Liberty. Amen Brother!
