say what again.
either he is unaware of what the bill he is backing actually is or is out of touch with reality. Senator Melvin did not do himself any justice by denying the fact that 1. this bill promotes discrimination (not religious freedoms as he insists repeatedly) and 2. that Arizona doesn’t have a shred of legislation that protects the discrimination by sexual orientation.
Meaning, unlike some states where gay and lesbian couples DO have protection under the law against discrimination and CAN sue for being discriminated against for being gay or lesbian, in Arizona they do not, therefor cannot sue for being discriminated against because they are homosexual. this is the point Anderson Cooper is trying to make. They’re suing in those states because they can.
Granted, Senator Melvin mentions this is a preemptive measure so that in the future, those who do not want to provide services for those who are homosexual, cannot sue for discrimination (which they can’t anyways since they’re not protected under anti-discrimination law. well they could try but they don’t have the weight of the law behind them).
hell, even Mitt Romney is telling Governor Jan Brewer to veto the law.
"im against all discrimination and i want maximum religious freedom" - Senator Al Melvin.
A few of my favorite photos I snapped at Lafayette cemetery.
In both versions of the tale, it is very clear who is number one in Grandpa Joe’s mind. He decides he must accompany Charlie to the chocolate factory. In the movie, he actually speaks of the ticket as though he, not Charlie, was the winner. “I’ve got a golden ticket.”
He considers eating everything a viable option. He doesn’t pause to consider that others might be hungry. He puts his immediate desire for fizzy lifting drinks ahead of Charlie’s lifetime supply of chocolate, and convinces Charlie to break the rules and drink the fizzy lifting drink!
In the very beginning, Grandpa Joe lays comfortably in a bed with his wife and elders of the family instead of helping the family financially or domestically at home. He sees his daughter working long hours in a run down laundry house, and poor Charlie delivering newspapers to help his mother make ends meet. The only motivation for the jackass to get out of bed is to go to a chocolate factory. As far as he is concerned a loaf of bread is a banquet and he has every right to smoke tobacco from his pipe while the family starves…
Finally the final point that demonstrates what a evil man this senior citizen really is, is this: When Willy Wonka yells at Charlie and tells him that he gets nothing, due to the fact that he stole fizzy lifting drinks, Grandpa Joe’s immediate reaction is to avoid an apology, and try to convince Charlie to sell the everlasting gobbstopper to Mr. Sluggworth. Good thing that Charlie did not listen to his irresponsible grandfather and decides to return the gobbstopper instead. This is an awful man people. And everyone should be made aware of his evil deeds!!!
feeling down, watch these…
