These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For


« on: February 25, 2021, 12:57:10 pm »

Granted last week wasnt the time to do any unnecessary driving, but I noticed a handful of Tulsa businesses with oversized flags flying them at half-mast.  

The controversial Governor of Florida ordered his state to do so, granting an honor normally reserved for the passing of high-ranking state officials, uniformed law enforcement and fire service personnel to a man that spewed hatred.  While our own Trump-lite Governor hasnt followed suit, it looks as if the local right hears the dog whistle.

Who cares? Flags were ordered at half mast for RBG, a controversial and extremely left leaning SCOTUS justice. Why? Because despite the controversy she still spearheaded many movements for women.

Likewise, not everyone agreed with Rush, but he changed talk radio and paved the way for modern day talkshows and podcasts, etc. Especially for conservatives, who are demonized and censored now more than ever.

Reducing Rush to "a guy that spewed hatred" is like reducing RBG to a women who used her power to perpetuate the murder of millions of babies via abortion.

You are comparing a Justice of the Supreme Court to a talk radio shock jock? And her being left to his hate filled speech?

At least they have their graven image.  I can see the late night infomercials now...

Maybe he will order his soon!  But wait, there is more - for a limited time only they will double the offer - just pay an additional fee!

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.
