TED CRUZ, SOCIOPATH CON ARTIST OR IDIOT?

This man is a graduate of Harvard law school - which for the record has more graduates as public officials behind bars than any other law school in the U.S.

FIRST AN UPDATE:

I finally surrendered to the pain and got up - been tossing and turning since 2:30.  On the surgery I have been assigned a liver organ transplant surgeon to go in and try and complete the removal of my gallbladder.  The operation will be at Doctors Renaissance on the 14th of July.  I expect coloring books, crayons, and Play-Doh.  So long as I hold under 101, I am to use Tylenol for the pain. Eating is a challenge inasmuch everything causes pain.  To say the least I am not putting much research or work into writing, although I am waiting on several AG opinions.  Yesterday I was in bed nearly the entire day trying to sleep.

THE LATEST UPDATE ON MARRIAGE EQUALITY

Be patient I will get to Ted Cruz

It may surprise many, but I am kind of bored with the issue.  For me my boredom climaxed the other night when I listen to an interview by a 23 year old male to female transgender.  At some level it was interesting because she seems to be dismissing the social construct of what a woman is, and finding her own way - this is good - although in some ways she was still buying into some archaic notions which if still fully in play today would have women barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen.

THE INTERVIEW -

The interview starts at about minute 26. Click for Interview

I am concerned I should not post this, but it is on the internet - I am posting it because it is insightful about generational differences.  Parents will get part of it - our young adults sometimes need to be allowed to look upon us as not getting life.  It is actually hard on the parents and close family members.  But it is a totally naturally process.  In the end over time we all move on - it is just part of moving into adulthood.  People should not take it personal.  People sometimes just need their space.

An interesting insight was the observation by the black interviewer to the white female as to why generally LGBT tend to celebrate in spite of the discrimination instead of being down about the discrimination such as blacks.  Well the histories are different.  And the statement was an overstatement.  There are plenty of black families in this country who look to their heritage and celebrate while moving beyond the negatives.  There was a time the greatest universities were in Northern African wherein algebra advanced under the Moors.  Black history is actually a history of great triumphs.  Conversely, I would submit the members of the LGBT community who committed suicide, turned to drug addiction, and prostitution did not exactly turn the battle in to a positive.

In 1983. a group of us in Dallas declared war on the white male supremacist in the Dallas Gay Alliance.  We were deemed outcasts - a label I carry with pride.  We demanded the organization name be changed to Gay and Lesbian Alliance. We were dismissed as trouble makers. 

We demanded a boycott of the clubs until they hired blacks, browns, and women as bar tenders - we were labeled as trouble makers.

We demanded it was time to openly discuss the high rate of gay youth suicide as a way to educate the public and were denounced as trouble makers.

We pushed forward on Parents and Friends and Gays and Lesbians only to be labeled trouble makers - but then to have the self anointed white male leadership come begging to be part of the movement once they realized we were making great strides forward.

I stopped going to the Dallas Pride Parade the day they announced transgender/transsexuals, and men in leather would not be allowed to have floats because it did not fit the image of the white male leaderships image they wanted to project to the community at large.  The fact it was these very groups who took the beatings at Stonewall in New York, meant nothing to the white male leadership.

The battle against the white male supremacist leadership in the gay community continues to dominate the conversation.

What I did not like about this interview I referenced above was, the battle was being painted as something new, and ignored for the last 30 years.   The battle was as real 30 years ago as it is today.

I will never forget when my client and I were on the Today show, and it was suggested that we also film the Phil Donohue show the same day since we were already in the studio.  This was 1993. The Today Show rejected the segment of my black female client in favor of a while male who in the green room was pushing the producers to allow him to speak about men child relationships.  Do you know how insulting that was?  The Donohue show informed us that it was decided he only wanted white male military personnel on his show because that was the image the self anointed gay leadership believed would best promote our cause.

This battle has been long and hard.  Tens of thousands died of AIDs because of ignorance and a U.S. government policy which in the beginning did nothing to educate and stop the spread of HIV.

 
The self anointed white male leadership may not care, but I do - we lost far too many people in this war for equality, and today I think - thank god they had the courage to fight and educate, in spite of the ignorance and oppression the self anointed gay white male leadership tried to impose upon all of us.  While those who came out to fight first were routinely denounced by the self anointed gay white male leadership, without the first fighters we would be nowhere.
 
The Human Rights Campaign and their oppressive way of our way or the highway delayed the victory and in fact was as oppressive against equality  as the actions of the religious right.
 
Oh the press will never allow for this truth - but we know - those who fought the enemy from within know the truth.
 
TED CRUZ
 
I needed to give the background because people need to understand on both sides it has been more about politics and power than true equality.
 
SO TED  CRUZ SAYS COUNTY CLERKS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO ISSUE MARRIAGE LICENSES IF IT VIOLATES THEIR RELIGION
 
Ted Cruz is not stupid - just a sociopath.  Do you know what the defense will be by the County Clerk if they get sued for refusing to issue the marriage license?  Immunity because they are not acting individually, but as the State.  And therein my friends is the con by Ted Cruz.  If they are acting as the state, then they are not acting individually and their religious beliefs are meaningless, because the state has no religious beliefs.  Ted Cruz knows this - but he is pandering to the ignorant in hopes he can become president.  Cruz, Rubio, Jindal and Perry will be some of first to fall out of the presidential race.
 
IN MY VIEW SUBJECTING EQUALITY TO PERSONAL POLITICAL GAIN IS THE ULTIMATE ACT OF TREASON - BUT THEN POLITICS IS WHAT IT IS
 
I wonder how the religious right would react to learn Ted Cruz nominated openly gay Robert Pitman to be a federal judge?  The press has a black out on this truth because it does not work in well with the PC bull-shit journalism.
 
FOR ME THE VICTORY WAS SOMEWHAT OF A DUD BECAUSE THOSE WHO FOUGHT FOR DECADES ON THE FRONT LINES WERE DISMISSED - AND THOSE WHO DIED SEEMED TO HAVE DIED FOR NO REASON
