Wild Roses and a Rant of sorts

Behind the house, on the alley, I have a large, unruly wild rose but a beautiful yellow.


And now, the 'rant'....

Got an email today from Daines, R/MT, regarding the importance of our protecting our 'constitutional rights of conscience'. He was of course referring to various business being able to refuse service to people they find 'objectional'.  My reply:
Staffer
When your boss wrote (or whoever writes this stuff) used the phrase 'Protecting our Constitutional rights of conscience', there are a few issues. One is there is no 'constitutional right of conscience', written or implied, unless one does a hell of a stretch. It's my 'constitutional right of conscience' to stand and yell Fire! in a crowded theater, implied by the first amendment, and struck down by the Supreme Court.
Second, what they really mean to say is there is a constitutional right to discriminate against anyone we want, claiming 'conscience'....it's a right to refuse service to blacks, because it goes against your 'conscience'.
 What a bunch of weasels your boss's club is, and he's a member in good standing.
Remember, there are a whole bunch of Montanans who are not in even remote agreement with most of his views.
I addressed this to 'staffers', because I don't think he get's within a thousand yards of posts that don't praise him. Sort of like his boss, eh?
Sincerely,
Mike Mulligan
P.S. As always, this is going on my blog also. Let me know if you're interested in reading me occasionally trash your boss.

  3. People have the right to have idiotic beliefs and when they express those beliefs they are subject to the public humiliation of being known as idiots. Their particular idiocy should not be codified.

    Yes, the yellow roses are glorious.
