Equality? Tell It To Stacie


Here is a laugh for ya. It’s the part about equality, Democrats label as “Constitutional Freedoms,” in the NH Democrat Party Platform (two laughs in one):

Democrats believe in working whenever possible with Independents, Libertarians, and Republicans – our neighbors and friends – to move New Hampshire forward.  When we disagree we do so with respect.  Democrats do not divide the State along lines of race, religion, disability, immigration status, national origin, age, or sexual orientation.  We will fight for the rights of women in all aspects of society, including equal pay at work and the right to privacy in making medical decisions.

Ah, but Stacie Marie Laughton won a hard fought campaign for a NH House seat in Nashua – and news reports she was part of claim Democrat Party Chair, Ray Buckley, explained to her how she should resign before taking office.

How about that equality!

And all that talk about how outside the mainstream Republicans were.

Democrats just seem to use people and not really care.

All that has NOTHING to do with Stacie being transgender. You know it. Have you sunk so low in having something about which to write, or are you so anti-everyone that you make things up? Not cool, at all. Kind of sad, really.

So tell me, why does a woman who has run for office countless times win in a Democrat mudslide and then change her mind?

I seem to be confused as to how much you GLTTB activists really CARE about what you preach endlessly, repeatedly, and hautilly to anyone stuck within earshot.

But it always comes back to MY motives, doesn't it?

"Democrats do not divide the State along lines of race, religion, disability, immigration status, national origin, age, or sexual orientation."

But they have no problem what so ever resorting to class warfare pitting the middle class against the rich.
December 5, 2012 | Registered CommenterRick Barnes
Absolutely wrong, Rick. Democrats just want everyone to have a shot at being rich. Right now, the deck is stacked -- and too many right-wingers and greedsters who have made it up the ladder want to pull that ladder up and not let anyone else get up.

Some corporations attack Obamacare -- that's a good word -- because they would have to provide insurance for their own employees. They'd rather follow the Walmart model -- underpay, give short hourly schedules so that they come under government regulations for providing certain benefits, and avoid giving employee health care so that their own employees don't have health care and need food stamps.

And the Right-To-Work (for less) lobby wants to put all the powers in the hands of the CEOs of the corporations, and destroy unions. That way, employees truly become peeons, with no workplace protections.

Minimum wage laws, OSHA regulations, and unions make sense at trying to get the pay levels up -- so that people can afford to buy the products they and others make. That makes everyone a little richer -- including the rich. So Democrats are in favor if helping the rich, as well as middle income and lower income, because we ARE in this adventure of life together. And we need to share in our responsibilities based on our ability to pay.

Please provide evidence of your claim that Stacie Laughton anywhere stated that Ray Buckley told her to resign. She never said that.

It is an absolute positive learning experience for NHInsider readers.

The limited homosexual activist list of talking points - when caught abandoning the one single example of their transwhatever minority the claim to represent.

Resent is more like it.

All the equality blather is a smokescreen by activists who seem to only care about power.

This will be remembered in 2014.

You still miss the point, Ed -- and probably always will. The "gay activist" list of talking points, as you refer to it -- the "gay agenda" -- is just slightly more than yours. We just add "equality" to the list. We want the opportunity to serve. To participate. To be part. And not have to hide in a closet to hold a job.

In most of this nation, one can still be fired just or denied housing just for being gay. In 1996 New Hampshire became just the 11th state in the country to put "sexual orientation" in its civil rights statutes to prohibit discrimination. I hope you supported that.

I voted for straights (I didn't ask, and didn't care) in this past election, and gays (I didn't care about that either). I voted for women and men. I voted for liberals, and some who aren't. I wanted people who would watch the finances, but also care for our poor. That was my own list of talking points.

It's not "about power," per your assumption, Ed. It's about inclusion. And not to be bullied physically or verbally by anyone, including you. I fight back when someone bullies me or others -- that's why I don't let you get away with some of your demeaning words on this site.

I might not have much more time on this planet, but I know there's nothing more important on Earth than the way we treat one another and when someone beats up on someone whether with their fists or their words, they need to be confronted.

And that will always be remembered -- not just this year, or 2013, or 2014, but forever. Because after me, there will be others to take you and yours on.

By the way -- I still like you, and I think you can be redeemed. It just will take a while.

So Jim:

Can you "redeem" Stacie enough so she can fill out her two year term?

Nice job of standing up for one of the GLTB team.

Typical answer to date from a Homosexual activist - my question as to how the Homosexual activists treat their own is always answered as though it was about me.

Not cool.

I don't understand this post at all. This representative was held accountable for her own actions as an individual. She was judged based on her conduct, not her membership in any group, and held to the same standards as anyone else. She did wrong and suffered the consequences.

How is this wrong? If the Dems had circled around this person and made excuses or tried to elevate identity politics over individual responsibility, then you might have reason to criticize. But as it is, I really don't understand what you are banging on about. I wonder how much thought you put into these posts.

Talk about hypocrisy. Raybo was caught in a voter participation video with his fly down and all his cohort rallied around him. Why... because he had in with big buck homosexual donors for Flynch. Stacie did not.
December 8, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterdave

Good point and one I will be writing about until 2014.

The Democrats stood by their hero, openly homosexual Raybo, through all the scandel he has been through, accusations of kiddie porn; that didn't bother them one bit, embarrassing video on youtube of him with his hair down playing with his zipper and wishing some country had been bombed by Nazis; that didn't bother Democrats, the investigatioin into what young man was assulated in the Dem office; that didn't bother Dems, what appeared to be trolling with Democrat credentials on some Facebook page for young people; that didn't bother Dems.

But let one transvestite Democrat candiate WIN a seat in the NH House and they are worried about their image?

Sucks to be a non-elite transgendered chick from Nashua.
