The Associated Press reported the other day that Donald Trump floated the idea of boycotting Starbucks because of frustration among some social conservatives that the coffee chain’s holiday-themed cups lack snowflakes and overt Christmas-themed images.
What the heck have we become? Some of these social conservative organizations want to just as controlling as the Taliban, only without the violence.
And for a presidential candidate to reinforce the lunacy of wanting a Christian symbol on a coffee cup is another reason “The Donald” should not be president.
If Trump isn’t bad enough, how about this report from the Washington Post.
“Chris Christie used his veto power to block a string of bills passed by the overwhelmingly Democratic legislature, offending the NAACP, the ACLU and the casino industry all in the same day:
• He vetoed a gun-control bill, which Gabby Giffords lobbied for, designed to prevent convicted domestic abusers from possessing firearms. (Star-Ledger)
• He vetoed a bill allowing early voting and automatically registering people to vote when applying for a driver’s license (“motor voter”) or other forms of state ID. (Philadelphia Inquirer)
• He rejected an Atlantic City aid package, which would have allowed casinos to suspend $210 million in property taxes. (WSJ)”
And one more controlling pronouncement just to round out my rant. Ted Cruz said, “Any president who doesn’t begin every day on his knees isn’t fit to be commander-in-chief of this country.”
