Financial Analysis: Barronelle Stutzman, The Washington Florist.

The Daily Signal has 21 questions for the Washington Florist who is being sued for refusing to provide service for a same sex marriage.   You won’t see this view in the mainstream media, which is why she received mountains of hate mail.

This Lady exhibits a great deal of kindness and courage, along with her (enviable) natural social skills.

From one with fewer social skills comes some financial analysis:

Mrs. Stutzman is being sued as a business owner, as well as personally.  This means that ALL of her assets are up for grabs.

Who is footing the bill for this decision to punish a person for her religious beliefs, for an act which does no real harm, and does not even limit services to the affected couple? THE TAX PAYER!   The costs of these kinds of frivolous litigations are borne in large part by the public, since public facilities are used and tied up by the proceedings, and since the public safety net covers those made broke by paying the damages.  Most of it is mediated by government funded bureaucrats.

In addition, after all of the accumulated wealth of the Stutzman’s is transferred to lawyers, and to the gay couple, the couple will become eligible for all sorts of federal and state services, and of course, YOU, the taxpayer will be paying.

Basically YOUR money is being  transferred to a gay couple, lawyers, and a bloated legal system,  because ONE florist, among many,  could not do their wedding on account of her religious beliefs.  It is important to know that these legal proceedings were initiated by the State Attorney General, in an assault on cultural diversity.

Please think about this, and determine if you want it to continue.

Celestial Discharge: Phyllis Schlafly

God’s blessings are requested for the  first lady of American Conservatism,  her family, and countless right wingers who will miss her presence.

The honorable head of the Eagle Forum, Phyllis Schlafly, has passed to the next life, at age 92.   It would behoove the more curious readers of this blog to enjoy Ms. Schlafly’s very last article published at World Net Daily, noting a similarity between Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump in the unapologetic forcefulness of  their respective desires to defend the U.S.A..  The rest of us should pray to remain as active and lucid as this intellectual giant, so near to the very end of our time on this planet.

The leader of the Eagle Forum, and the natural force of conservatism might be best known for her opposition to the “Equal Rights Amendment”.  Ms. Schlafly noted that the U.S. Constitution really was written as gender neutral, as she opposed the idea that women should try to adopt the physiology of men and try to function in the exact same way.  Supposed legal experts sneered as she correctly pointed out that passage of the ERA would subject women to the draft.  After Ms. Schlafly took on the ERA five more states approved it, but five other states reversed their approval, leaving the ERA with a net zero further progress, and final defeat.

Many, but certainly not all feminists held bitter opinions of Phyllis Schlafly as she earned her law degree, wrote 27 books, raised six children and led the Eagle Forum these many years.  She was the force of nature and superwoman that they perhaps wished they could be.

Celestial Discharge: Justice Antonin Scalia

Normally this would be time to recognize the contributions of Supreme Court Justice Scalia and his efforts to forestall  the slide of the U.S. into the scrap heap of civilization.   However, the circumstances and timing of his demise leave many questions, and a sense of foreboding for our future.  Most pro-life people are mourning this loss of a significant supporter of the human right to life.

Prayers for Antonin Scalia and those he leaves behind.

Leftist Persecution of Christians: The Barronelle Stutzman Story

Barronelle Stutzman, Washington florist, being persecuted for her religious beliefs

Barronelle Stutzman, Washington florist, being persecuted for her religious beliefs

The Attorney General of Washington State wants to destroy the Floral business of Barronelle Stutzman, as well as take her home and personal assets because she does not believe in same sex marriage. Though she provided many other floral services for customers of the homosexual persuasion, she drew the line at doing same sex weddings because she believes that marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman.

Click HERE to see a video of her story. She’s being represented by the Alliance Defending Freedom, a public interest law organization which defends the constitutional rights of individuals.

So far, a state judge is ruling against Barronelle Stutzman, but her lawyers are appealing.   This case could eventually move to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Perhaps the Washington State  Persecutor of Christians,  Attorney General, Bob Ferguson will eventually  be  held liable for all legal fees and any damages to Mrs. Stutzman in this case, when it eventually comes to a conclusion.

Highest respect and prayers for Barronelle Stutzman for her steadfastness in adhering to the dictates of her conscience.

CA Law Banning Gay Conversion Therapy Put on Hold Pending Appeal to Supreme Court

CA Law Banning Gay Conversion Therapy Put on Hold Pending Appeal to Supreme Court

Both California and New Jersey have passed laws which ban therapy for the purpose of converting a person to straight lifestyle.

Giacomo, at Godfather Politics notes that Chris Christie signed that New Jersey law.   Most notably, there are no laws against therapists who convert sexually confused people to the gay lifestyle.   This inconsistency is an immediate basis for declaring the ban on converting people to straightness to be unconstitutional.

Wonder of wonders, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has put the California ban on hold until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on the appeal brought by Liberty Counsel.

Fort Hood Massacre: Either it was Terror, Or Obama Should be in Jail

TheBlaze Investigation: How Obama and the Army Betrayed the Victims of Fort Hood | TheBlaze.com.

Glenn Beck is covering the issue of Fort Hood military personnel who were injured or killed by Major Nidal Hasan.  He’s been clamoring for the incident to be recognized as a terror attack, and for the victims to be honored and/or supported  as is befitting members of the military who are killed or injured in an enemy attack.

At issue is the relationship of Hasan to Anwar Al Awlaki, a U.S. citizen who became a radicalized Muslim cleric, and the inspiration of this attack.

Obama chose to Drone Al Awlaki and his 16 year old son.  Yes, they were both killed without the  due process that is normally accorded to criminals who are American Citizens.

Either the Ft. Hood massacre should be classified as a terrorist attack, or Obama and his associates who participated in the drone attacks should be in jail for murder.

Viral TSA Blogger Unmasks (Capitalist System at Work)

The man behind the Taking Sense Away, TSA blog on WordPress decided to reveal himself to the world, publishing yesterday in the Politico.

Jason Edward Harrington is working on a novel based upon his experiences as a TSA employee (paid to grope passengers at airports).  Hopefully the remaining, capitalist vestige of the economic system will reward his efforts.  Up to this time he’s been exposing the antics and inside stories of the TSA anonymously, first as an employee, working through college, then from the outside while in graduate school.

A portion of what news stories have carried about the workings of the TSA has come from Harrington’s blog.  Be sure to take a look, if you haven’t seen it already.  The January 30 entry will lead you to his piece at the Politico, entitled: Dear America, I Saw You Naked, and yes we were laughing.  Confessions of an ex-TSA agent.

Convention of States to Amend the Constitution

It’s heating up.  A procedure which Mark Levin cites in his book, Liberty Amendments, is allowed by the Article 5 of the Constitution.  It specifies that state legislatures can send representatives to a convention to vote on amendments to the Constitution.   A three fourths majority of the representatives at the convention  is required to pass an amendment.

It’s a way for the states to address the utter bilge and corruption in Washington D.C.

97 legislators from 32 states  met in Mt. Vernon on 12/7  to discuss calling a Convention of the States to amend the Constitution.   A two thirds  majority of the state legislatures have to give the OK for such a convention to be called, and it appears that the effort is NOW underway.

Write your state legislators if you think that this is a good idea.  Overall, the red states could make some serious headway against the constant flushing of sewage from D.C.

Happy Thanksgiving

When Pharmer’s youngest son shot his first wild turkey, we discovered that it tastes a lot different than those Butterballs we buy at the grocery store.  It’s meatier, almost like pork roast.  Wild turkeys actually fly a bit, and can really bend a branch when they land. It’s actual working muscle that gets converted to dinner.  Turkey is much too tasty to be a national bird.  The hunting seasons here are short, and hunters are permitted to take only one. Tom was spring food this year.

The family is divided into two on this day.  Pharmer goes to work for those people who are stuck in the hospital on Thanksgiving and day 1 of Hanukkah.  The rest are heading to celebrate Thanksgiving  with the in-laws.  Accompanying  them is the daughter’s college room-mate, from mainland China, who will be experiencing her first such American observance.

Wishing you a Blessed Thanksgiving.  Celebrate what’s left of American freedom, drive safe …… keep yourself out of Pharmer’s hospital.

don't waste the pretty part

a little like pork roast
