Re: least we forget

Nothing more fun to watch than wingers trying to deny the total inversion of the parties over the past 150 years.  Now if there was a caucus of Republicans who supported similar policies today, they would receive a lot of support.

 

And FWIW, as has been stated often here, Obama Care is essentially a point by point implementation of plans put forward by the conservative Heritage Foundation and of Romneycare as implemented in Massechuserts.  But whatever...I'm sure this crap is effective with the high info crowd.

Re: least we forget

If these guys didn't have revisionist history they would have no history at all. Oh, and history, at least for their grievances, only started in 2008.

 

A. Lincoln accomplishments are; Emancipation Proclamation, 13th Ammendment, The Homestead Act, The Morrill Act, chartered the Transcontinental Railroad, The National Banking Act, and of course kept the Union intact and believed in a strong central govt. Today's Repubs would have nothing to do with any of what he did. Oh, and probably the biggest, he was a master at compromise, which is now equated to a four letter word and even means if you are one of them, and compromise that you will soon find yourself on the other end of getting " Primaried " by your own.

Now our government uses it powers for things like this.

 

snip-

Mayor de Blasio signed an executive order Monday requiring workers in city-owned buildings to let people use bathrooms based on their gender identity, regardless of their anatomy.

The executive order, which seeks to clarify existing rules issued by the city’s Commission on Human Rights, also mandates training for municipal workers on the policy, which is designed to help 25,000 transgender New Yorkers.

“We think defending the rights of one community is defending the rights of all communities,” de Blasio said right before signing the order, which goes into effect immediately.

He spoke at the Chelsea Recreation Center in Manhattan, surrounded by cheering LGBT activists.

“As someone who at one point would not stay outside for more than four hours for fear of not having access to public accommodations ... I understand the impact of this executive order,” said Sean Coleman, the executive director of the Bronx-based LGBT advocacy group Destination Tomorrow.

 

The order says that no one can be denied access to any men’s or ladies’ room that corresponds with their gender identity, and should not be required to provide any documentation of his or her gender.

It applies to city-owned buildings — including public parks, recreation centers, and agency offices.

The order includes locker room as well as restrooms.

It does not apply to private businesses, but the Commission on Human Rights last year ruled that any public accommodation that denies someone the right to the facilities because of his or her gender identification could be in violation of city anti-discrimination laws.

That's an epic bit of twaddle, even by your standards.

It is the face of the modern day main stream progressive liberal. Number 1 priority is social issues. Social issues that rip the guts from a moral society.

Heck yeah, back in the good old days they just moved the priest to another parish.

I'll also call that for the steamin' load of BS that it is.

 

There's, at minimum, full equivalency for all the RW outrages de jour.

Apparently your handler- who's on the other end of the wire into your brain- didn't see fit to mention the dawn of progressivism under the GOP at the turn of the century.

maybe if you and yours were not like Rebecca Bradley, people would not feel the need to pass such legislation.
