Let’s Be Absurd

None of us like to be told what to do by the government…..but then there are those people that will allow it as long as it does not pertain to their lives….

We are having a debate over where someone pees…..my thought is how will you determine if the person belongs there or not….the only way to do that is by becoming a peeping Tom or the person walks in with genitals a in hand and announces they are there….to me this is a silly debate to be wasting our time on…..

Then there are the people that are pissed about a gay person wanting a cake, among other services,

More than 30 ministers from around the state and nation published an open letter Monday saying the so-called “religious freedom” law goes against Christian teachings to love and respect all people. The group joins major businesses, human rights groups and legal experts in opposing the incoming law, which they say discriminates against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The law lets churches and some private businesses deny services to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people because of religious beliefs. It’s similar to one vetoed by Georgia’s governor in late March. Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant signed the measure into law earlier this month.

Supporters of the law include the American Family Association and the Southern Baptist Convention. They say it protects those who decline services to people whose lifestyles violate religious beliefs that marriage should only be between a man and a woman; that sexual relations should only take place inside such marriages, and that a person’s sex is determined at birth and is unchangeable.

Another Southern state has passed another law……this one centers around therapists but I am sure that it will be expanded……

Mental health therapists and counselors in Tennessee can now turn away gay patients or others whose “goals, outcomes, or behaviors” conflict with their “sincerely held beliefs.” Republican Gov. Bill Haslam signed Bill 1556 into law on Wednesday, saying it doesn’t “address a group, issue, or belief system,” though opponents say it’s a troubling attack on gay rights, CNN reports. The bill was created in response to the American Counseling Association’s 2014 change to its ethics code, which required counselors to avoid imposing their own values on clients, the Tennessean reports.

The ACA says the Tennessee legislation, which is the only such law in the country, is an “unprecedented attack” on the profession, the AP reports. ACA spokesman Art Terrazas says the group is “extremely disappointed” that Haslam has ignored the backlash to similar “religious freedom” bills in states like Georgia “and has elected to sign this dangerous bill into law. Plain and simple, this bill codifies discrimination.” The final version of the bill removed references to religion and added requirements for therapists to treat people who are in immediate danger of harming themselves or others, and to refer rejected clients to other therapists or counselors

All this is just absurd….I mean one goes into business to sell services and make money….but yet some money is different from other money?  And then when people retaliate with a boycott these same people start whining about the loss of business.

We got rid of one form of segregation (sort of) and replaced it with another…..where will this type of pure CRAP end?

Maybe this cartoon will show you…….the path of absurdity.

Oh wait there is even more of this conservative absurdities.

Being a single mom in Springfield, Illinois could get a little more difficult if certain GOP lawmakers get their way.

According to the proposed bill HB6064 filed last week by Reps John D. Cavaletto and Keith Wheeler, if a father is not listed on a newborn child’s birth certificate, the birth certificate will not be issued for the child and any future financial assistance will be denied.

Where do these mental midgets draw the line?

What the Hell will be next for the slugs of the American political system?

  1. Whatever the next absurdity from the “Slugs of The American Political System” might be I am sure it will be far more preferable to some of those dreamed up by the “Slugs of some Third World craphole.” I am sorry but I have had friends and relatives give their lives for the “American” political system and I have worn the uniform to defend it myself …Sorry for the negative tone … I am sure I misunderstood something here….

    1. Was shot twice in Vietnam..lost 3 of my closest friends….I have done more than enough for this American way….yes you did….we have more real problems without the absurdities that the slugs think up to look like they work for a living.

  3. Sorry, but, I must have worn myself out already. That, or this is so absurd (right word, btw) I’m intimidated because it would take days to comment…. Well, maybe one…

    Their (the aforementioned ‘slugs’, and, those idiots who think up this sort of bs in the first place, like the Baptist swarm) absurdity comes naturally, for, after all, they base their entire philosophy of life on the assumption there is some white haired old kindly old god with a beard, who can create the entire Universe with a word, but, is intensely interested in their sex life. Kind of makes it hard to be logical when your entire existence is based on a delusional fantasy.

    gigoid, the dubious

    done for the day

  4. Seeing as racism has been officially declared dead by The Supremes, all those racists need somebody to exercise their pent up bigotry on. Who cares if you can’t tell what crotch equipment a person has or what kind of person they’re attracted to? They can always guess. Ah, it was so easy back in the good ol’ days. All you had to do was look at their skin. Now you have to preform a strip search, a birth certificate check, or play some gay porn in front of them.

    The Spoiler Alert! is the Lunch Counter approach they’re taking. Refusing to serve people…based upon their assumption of who their paying customer is.

    I “love” this fucking bullshit! It’s straight out of a nasty, bygone, era where people posted signs “No blacks, Jews or Irish allowed.” (Growing up in a town full Irish, I could understand that one. But still.) Flash forward to 2016 and the government is passing laws allowing you to do the exact same thing. It will certainly be interesting how long these laws stay on the books, seeing as you just replace the word “blacks” with “gays/trans” and their basically identical.

    Where does it end? Easy answer, when the Supremes finally strike it down. But “denial of service” isn’t just for hackers anymore. (ie the pharmacists refusing to sell birth control devices sold at the pharmacy they work for.) It’s now for bigots who choose to hide behind their religion in order to go after somebody they think sins against their God….instead of DOING THEIR MOTHERFUCKING JOBS!!! You got a problem with serving “these people”? Quit!

    Where does it end? When everybody everywhere only serves the kind of people they are in favour of…blacks, Jews, Republicans, Sons of the Confederacy, blondes, historical battle reenactors, Dukes of Hazzard fans, the left handed …..every single distinguishing feature, belief, or personality type will eventually be up for grabs as we carve out micro-niches based upon our intolerance.

    Buying shit will be sheer hell.

    1. This is why I have warned people for years when they celebrate some civil rights victory that they need to keep the fight or they will be repeating it over and over…
