All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.



Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

Minor Edit

Kim Davis has raised a considerable stir with not granting SSM licenses.  I don't think her not issuing the license is as much of a problem as her reason for not issuing them.  Her reasoning is summed up in a statement she issued through her lawyers.
I never imagined a day like this would come, where I would be asked to violate a central teaching of Scripture and of Jesus Himself regarding marriage. To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience. It is not a light issue for me. It is a Heaven or Hell decision. For me it is a decision of obedience. I have no animosity toward anyone and harbor no ill will. To me this has never been a gay or lesbian issue. It is about marriage and God’s Word. It is a matter of religious liberty, which is protected under the First Amendment, the Kentucky Constitution, and in the Kentucky Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
That statement explains her reasoning very clearly.  It also is what has the LBG crowd's panties and strapons in a bunch.  I have an editing suggestion that helps out both Ms. Davis and the rest of America.  I believe this will get Kim off the hook and allow the SJW herd to stifle themselves.

I never imagined a day like this would come, where I would be asked to violate a central teaching of The Koran and of Mohamad Himself regarding marriage. To issue a marriage license which conflicts with Allah’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience. It is not a light issue for me. It is a Heaven or Hell decision. For me it is a decision of obedience. I have no animosity toward anyone and harbor no ill will. To me this has never been a gay or lesbian issue. We should be beheading them for their sins.  It is about marriage and Allah's Word. It is a matter of religious liberty, which is protected under the First Amendment, the Kentucky Constitution, and in the Kentucky Religious Freedom Restoration Act. 
See  how nicely that works out?  Kim doesn't have to issue the licenses and the SJW's can't find anything to complain about.

SJW's dumb but not that stupid.

Tuesday at Work

It's Tuesday.  Millions of Americans are going into work today.  In a couple of hours Kim Davis will go into work too.  Depending on what time of day it is when you are reading this; Kim may or may not be under arrest and in a jail cell or dead by cop.

Today Kim Davis will go into work.  If she stays the course she has committed to, she will defy the United States Supreme Court and take what ever comes.

What is so important that Mrs. Davis, a pudgy middle aged women with two failed marriages and a job as a low level elected county bureaucrat in a backassward state like Kentucky willing to risk arrest for?

She is unwilling to:
Call darkness, light;
Call bitter, sweet;
Call evil, good. 

Kim Davis holds elected office as a county clerk.  Her job traditionally involves, among other things, issuing marriage licenses. 

Earlier this year SCOTUS decided they would follow their activist predilections and call same sex cohabitation marriage.  For the record, at least 2 of the so called  justices were performing SSM (Same Sex Marriages) prior to ruling on the case where they created the right to SSM.  Why they are allowed to keep their bar licensees and haven t been impeached for ethics violations is another story. 

In response, Kim decided that she would not issue any marriage licenses to anyone, straight or gay.  She isn't discriminating against anyone.  Nobody can get a marriage license from her office. 

Hundreds of homosexuals have decided that they absolutely must have a marriage license issued to them in Rowan County Kentucky.   Many, if not most of the applicants, don't actually live in Rowan County, or even Kentucky.  No matter, they are having their civil rights violated because Kim Davis won't condone their lifestyle choices.

It doesn't matter that the applicants she refused drove by other county courthouses that they could have received a marriage license from.  It doesn't matter that they could have gotten a license in their home town or state even.  The only marriage license that will properly solemnize gay love, celebrate and sanctify same sex marriage is one that Kim Davis is unwilling to issue.  She has magic marriage licenses.

The collective butt hurt is unimaginable.  These people know about butt hurt.  Mostly they like it.  What they don't like is someone who isn't willing to go along with their version rainbows and unicorns. 

This is why they are willing to drive all the way from Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio and other places in and outside of Kentucky, so they can have their civil rights violated by someone they never knew or cared existed.

Tuesday September 1, 2015, Kim Davis went into work and ....

May God bless Kim Davis, keep her strong and fight this battle on her behalf.

May America realize:
Conformity isn't diversity,
Political correctness isn't a substitute for personal virtue,
Violating one person's conscience diminishes everyone s liberty.

If Kim Davis is in the wrong, the solution is to vote her out of office, not force her to compromise her conscience.



UPDATE

Kim Davis staying the course.

GFF--Sundry

This one is a continuation of last week's.

 
Doug Perrill has a cool job.  He gets to fly a corporate jet around and deliver VIP's to their destinations.  Doug heard about the three young men who saved the folks on that train in France and how their mothers wouldn't be able to go to Paris to see their boys get their award.
 
So he called his boss and asked for a favor.  I'm not sure how that phone call went down but it ended up with him taking the company jet to Paris and making sure three American moms got to see their boys be honored as heroes.
 
Good on ya Doug and good on your boss Tim Boyle for picking up the tab.
 
 
First as disclaimer, I'm not a fan of tattoos.  It's not my thing.  I think that right around 90% of the time they look stupid.  Call me prejudiced.  I recognize that it takes skill and is a type of art.  I'm glad Aaron Guillemette has developed and practiced his art and honed his skills.
A tattoo artist in Fall River, Massachusetts helped a little girl feel proud to wear leg braces by outfitting them with a set of spectacular Disney designs.
Good on ya Aaron
"I'm glad to be in a position where I can help the community in any way," Aaron Guillemette told Today. "When I was first approached about designing Hope's braces, I thought it would be an awesome idea -- especially when I heard what the subject matter would be. Hope wanted Disney villains on her braces, not princesses."
Disney villains?  At least its not a tramp stamp.  Using the skill you have to do good is praise worthy.

GFF-Update

I noticed that Waterboy has been silent these last few days.  He probably laughed himself to death when he saw the Marines credited with bravery that turned out to be earned by the Air Force, National Guard and a civilian. 

I have been searching to see if I could discover the source of the mistake.  As far as I can tell the author of the original Daily Mail post made the mistake and several other news outlets copied it.  Beyond that I don't have an explanation.

The three young Americans involved in the story deserve our heartfelt praise, respect and admiration.  Men are supposed to fight.  We were made that way for a reason.  Part of our job as men is to stand against those that would hurt the weak and innocent.  We do that by fighting.

Sometimes in a fight you get hit, cut or shot.  All of those things happened on the train in France.  Our boys kept fighting despite their injuries.  They pressed the battle until they were victorious.
