Question of the day

Tuesday, Mar 31, 2015

* “The Crossroads of America” is Indiana’s official state motto. I’m thinking they may need to amend that motto a bit, or maybe even throw it out and start all over again.

* The Question: Suggestions for a new or revised Indiana state motto?

    Notice that “Crossroads of America” doesn’t really say anything about anyone *stopping.* “A lot of people come through here. Nobody stays, but boy, do they ever pass through!”

    In the Crosshairs of America.

    America’s Heartless Land

    The Who’s your Friend? State

    Making Tolerance Intolerable

    Welcome Home, the 1950’s

    Saying No in the name of religion

    Where Pence makes no sense

    Giving that ole time intolerance, it’s good enough for them

    Wanting diversity only under our terms

    Everyone is equal, unless…

    Because diversity is an old, old, wooden ship from the civil war

    Where lady justice is blind, and so should everyone else

    “Can we ask you a few …questions…”

    Making the Deep South liberal

    Where a fair shake is a slap in the face

    We love everyone whom we deem lovable

    If you meet our criteria, welcome, otherwise, get out. Thanks!

    Your money’s no good here. You know who you are.

    We’re not intolerant to those we want here

    Civil rights? Meh.

    Going backwards. That’s always been our way

    More like a private club than a free society

  115. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Mar 31, 15 @ 2:47 pm:

    Word, I think A guy is just waiting for all of the hoopla about this law to die down. I mean, sure, people are mad about being targets of legal dsicrimination, but after they get used to it, everything will go back to normal.

    That’s the thing about civil rights. Once you give them to someone, everybody else wants them too.

    47, “hoopla” is a heck of a word, ain’t it?

    Seriously, though, what kind of American strives to use the power of government to abuse a class of citizens?

    Guy is a weak, very weak, apologist for bigots. Why, that’s his problem.

    As ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren . . . no, try again.

    Indiana, where we don’t know the Bible as well as we thought we did.


  127. - A guy - Tuesday, Mar 31, 15 @ 3:31 pm:

    Couldn’t be more wrong Sling/47. Bigotry in any form is the ugliest thing on the face of the Earth. Going around calling someone a “bigot” or implying so, carries a hell of a lot more responsibility than the back and forth comments in a blog. If I were a bigot, it would be a very hypocritical circumstance for me. Don’t know either of you well enough (or at all really) to know what you might have done to promote the cause of tolerance or fight discriminatory practices, but I know for sure what I’ve done. I feel safe stacking it up against either of you.

    We have a difference of opinion when it comes to the interpretation of this law. The State, the Governor, the communications folks around it could not have done a lousier job putting any clarity to what this does or doesn’t do. Their effort here flat out stunk.

    That being said, this thread and a few others have done the same in absolute reverse; you’ve condemned an entire state full of people with crass, over the line insults. The intent of this law was different than how it’s been portrayed. I heard 2 constitutional scholars say it’s materially the same as what we have in Illinois and 20 other states. It’s reported that in 20 years there hasn’t been a single case that survived a preliminary hearing making it “okay” to discriminate against gays. Not one.

    And yet, I’m sure it goes on everyday, well outside of any legislation. No matter how hard you try, you can’t legislate decency in behavior. Jerks are going to be jerks. And reading on this blog some of the comments about the folks one state over are no less “jerky” than the behavior you’re supposedly condemning. Go ahead a be proud of that if you want to.

    Call me a bigot and you’re way out of line. I’m the opposite.

    These last few days observing here and participating in some cases have been very disappointing. Very little of it has been intelligent. Ridicule is cutting both ways. It’s equally ugly.

    A Guy, first, I didn’t call you a bigot. Second, you’re wrong about the intent of the law. That’s been demonstrated repeatedly, so you are now willfully misrepresenting this law. Third, on Friday you described the controversey as a bunch of hoopla that would abate. You were wrong then too.

    Look, you’re a partisan blinded by party loyalty. That’s fine. I’m the same sometimes. But you are wrong about this bill and I’ll continue to push back at the misinformation you’re intentionally pushing here.

    Oh, and grow up. This thread was meant to be snarky.
