Tucker Dorsey Stands Up to the Federal Government




Tucker Dorsey is a minor official in Alabama who refuses to lower the flag for the victims in the Orlando, Florida massacre. Instead of just doing the decent thing and lowering the flag, he wants to send a wink-wink message to the community that he's not about to roll over and let the gays and the lesbians and whoever else get any respect. 

Once again I have to copy this post regarding lowering the flags because another follower of Islam decided to shoot up a bunch of innocents in a place where they didn't have the chance to defend themselves or flee. When are we going to acknowledge the truth? When will we stop the PC and identify the enemy?

I have been asked why the County Commission has not lowered its flags in respect for the victims of both the Paris and San Bernardino terrorist events (and now Orlando). The Chairman of the Baldwin County Commission has the privilege of setting the flags at half-staff, and I, serving as chairman, have deliberately chosen not to lower our flags. Please allow me to share those reasons. 

First and foremost, my soul aches for the families of the innocents killed, and my family prays for them and the world. Evil exists in the world, and it seems to be expanding at a rapid rate. It is evil, not guns, killing innocents, but that is a different essay.

Lowering the flags to half-staff after mass shooting or terrorist event is not a valid circumstance or memorial as specified in the U.S. flag code (usflag.org), Section 175, paragraph (m). I realize that the President and Governor may make the order, but I believe and interpret their order inconsistent with the adopted flag code.

Secondly and principally, our flag code specifies that ‘no other flag shall be above the flag of the United States’, and I characterize that as US citizens holding our head up with courage above all others. When the flag is at half-staff, our country’s head is figuratively held low, and quite frankly, I am not willing to hang my head down because of a terrorist attack against our people and our allies. I am not willing to hang my head down because evil shoots up a church, school, or movie theater. We need more than a gesture as a response. I want us, as Americans, to stand tall, courageously, and fight back against the forces of evil, and let’s fight like we intend to win.

Moving forward, please join me in regular prayer for peace, for our military, law enforcement, and first responders along with their families.

Bullshit. This man wants to assert States Rights, the Tenth Amendment, scream nullification, and bar the door and keep people in their place. An order by the President of the United States of America concerning the display of the American flag is not a "valid circumstance?" Really? How did we invest Tucker Dorsey with that authority?

Really, if Mitt Romney or John McCain were president, you wouldn't hear word one out of these ass clowns. They are making their stand because the president is black and because they hate the idea of doing anything to honor LGBTS citizens. When Hillary Clinton is elected president, these people are going to bring their grievances out of the woodwork and do whatever they can to disrespect her and undermine her authority. They'll use incidents like this to further their agenda of showing key segments of the community that they do not accept the authority of the person sitting in the Oval Office. 

Memo to Donald Trump--see above. That's how you blow that dogwhistle.

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
