Stupid Things that People Believe and POST!

It's time for outrageous things that people say and post. This one should get your blood boiling and make you happy you don't live in South Carolina:
 It's from Todd Kincannon  , the Former Executive Director of South Carolina GOP (from 2004 to 2010) - this ignorance, bigotry and hatred is sadly no surprise.  - We're posting his actual tweet from his page, so you can see it here. 
   He also said "Transgender People Should Be 'Put in a Camp'"
  and   It hasn't been this dark in the Superdome since all those poors occupied it after Hurricane Katrina.

   So, why would a party allow someone so full of hatred and intolerance for other races, sexualities and religions in a position to LEAD their political party? 
  We find this outrageous and disgusting, and we're glad we don't live in South Carolina, where apparently bigotry and intolerance are prevalent (which doesn't mean everyone in the state, just the people who support that party).

Look at this from North Carolina on Feb. 3: 
GOP senator: Let restaurants ‘opt out’ of handwashing after toilet to ‘reduce regulatory burden’

Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) argued this week that restaurants should be able to “opt out” of health department regulations that require employees to wash their hands after using the bathroom.
On Monday, the freshman senator ended his talk at the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) with a story to illustrate his philosophy on government regulations.
“I was having this discussion with someone, and we were at a Starbucks in my district, and we were talking about certain regulations where I felt like maybe you should allow businesses to opt out,” Tillis recalled. “Let an industry or business opt out as long as they indicate through proper disclosure, through advertising, through employment, literature, whatever else. There’s this level of regulations that maybe they’re on the books, but maybe you can make a market-based decision as to whether or not they should apply to you.”  STORY:

 How about this one from Feb. 3?
 U.S. Congressman Chris Smith earlier this week announced gay rights are not human rights. "I am a strong believer in traditional marriage and I do not construe homosexual rights as human rights," Smith said.  SOURCE: www.thenewcivilrightsmovement

    When are people going to wake up and realize everyone is in this country together and need to all respect each other?  When are people going to stop putting hateful, divisive, bigots in power?  


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
