Homosexuality Is A Lifestyle Choice and Has Nothing to Do with Civil Rights
By Jack Ryan
"I may have the genetic coding that I am inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at
the homosexuality issue the same way." - Texas Governor Rick Perry

I couldn't agree more with Governor Perry. I don't believe homosexuality is anymore of a civil; rights issue than is alcoholism.
I further do not agree with any of this nonsense about giving homosexuals the right to enter into same sex marriages or
adopting kids. First of all, Marriage always has been  and always will be between a Man and a Woman, period. Secondly,
homosexuality is not normal no matter how those who have chosen this lifestyle try to convince us it is, and innocent children
should not be subjected to this lifestyle choice.

Of course, the progressives are trying to shove this nonsense in society's face. They tell us how what difference does it
make if homosexuals love each other? Who is society to tell who a person can love? So I guess that these same knuckle
heads feel that a person who loves their pet should be able to marry it? Do they also feel it is okay for a woman who loves
her dog should be able, as a couple, to adopt a child?

Just take a look at what is going on in our society. There is actually a school in New York City, just for kids who identify
themselves as lesbian, gay and trans gender. This seems like nothing more than indoctrinating these kids into this abnormal
lifestyle. Lets try to give our kids a good foundation to enter our society and not play into this deviation. If they decide to  
practice this deviate lifestyle when they adults, then that is their choice. It should not be supported at the cost to the
taxpayer. If their parents want their children to be educated in this lifestyle, then it should be handled in the same manner as
those parents who want their children to receive religious education then they should pay for it themselves.

NYC Police Officers being PERSECUTED for attempting to arrest a rotund career criminal
who died while resisting.
By Jack Ryan
By now, just about everyone has seen the video of  the arrest of Eric Garner, who died while
resisting arrest,  for allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes in NYC. Let me first say that my heart
goes out to his family for their loss. From what I have read about Mr. Garner, his friends and
neighbors say he was a nice guy and a dedicated dad. It's always a tragedy when someone dies,
especially when it could have been avoided.

Yes, I did say that Mr. Garner's death was completely avoidable. Had Eric Garner done the right
thing, he would probably be alive today! The police did not kill Eric Garner, Eric Garner  is
responsible for Eric Garner's death, Nobody Else!
Once again, I see the usual suspects coming out of the woodwork to make excuses for the anti-social behavior of the
alleged perpetrator and relieving this person of taking responsibility for their actions. Now, I am not saying that anyone
deserves to be killed for allegedly selling "untaxed cigarettes". Nor does anyone deserve to have their life for resisting
arrest. According to some of the race baiter's and the ignorant out there, this is exactly what happened. If you have more
than oatmeal for brains and you actually saw video you will know that is NOT what happened. What I saw in the video is Eric
Garner refusing to cooperate with the police and resisting arrest. As we have since learned, Mr. Garner died as a result of a
heart attack, not of police brutality or racial discrimination, yet the ignorant race baiter's are trying to say something
different. They are blaming the police officer, an 8 year veteran of the NYPD with numerous arrests made, because he
allegedly put the suspect in a "choke hold" in order to bring him to the ground. We've already been informed that the hold
did no damage to the suspect's throat or airway. The suspect died of a heart attack! Someone please explain to me how the
police officer gave Mr. Garner a heart attack.

As I said, Mr. Garner was the one who was responsible for all that happened and the result of this incident. How, you might
ask. Let's look at the facts:
  1. The police observed Mr. Garner allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes.
  2. When the police confronted Mr. Garner and determined that there was enough evidence to arrest him, Mr. Garner,
    who had an extensive arrest record, decided to resist arrest. This was not his first rodeo with the police.
  3. Mr. Garner, unfortunately, died of Natural Causes while fighting with the police.
How is this Police Brutality or racially motivated? It has Nothing to do with Black and White  but instead Criminal and Police.

As I said, had Mr. Garner done the right thing, or things, he would still be alive today and not put his family through all of this
grief nor would an innocent police officer's future, as well as his family's financial security, be put in jeopardy. But, instead
his irresponsible and anti-social behavior has caused all of this while the ignorant race baiter's and....

Customer service is out the window and what were once kids' jobs have since become
adult careers! Take the Poughkeepsie Journal News Paper for instance....
By Jack Ryan
 As some people may have guessed by now, sometimes small things just piss me off. But, here's
the thing, small things to some of us are just that; small things. To a disabled person, what we
consider small things are sometimes insurmountable. I have a friend who's health has been on
a downward slide for the last several years and who's latest medical debacle is that his leg had
to be amputated above the knee and has left him confined to a wheelchair for the time being.
For the most part, thew extent of his going out consists of doctor's visits several time a week.
So as to protect his identity, I will call my friend JX. He decided to get the local paper, The
Poughkeepsie Journal delivered to his home. When he placed the order, he explained his
dilemma and asked that instead of delivering the newspaper to his driveway could it be left on
the front porch. The person on the phone, eager to make a sale, of course promised the paper would be left at the front door.
After taking his credit card, the person once again told him that the paper would be at the door.

 For the first week, the paper was thrown in the driveway. He called the customer service department and the apologized
profusely and promised to rectify the problem. For the next two weeks, it was hit and miss; some days on the front porch,
others in the driveway at curbside. JX's wide called for him and explained that the man is handicapped and cannot get up and
down the driveway to retrieve the paper. The moron on the phone says to her "Are you disabled too? Why can't you go get
the paper from the driveway for him?" His wide demanded to speak with a supervisor but was told she would have to wait 24 to
48 hours for one to call back. At that point JX told his wife to just cancel the service. Low and behold, someone call back
immediately and tries to convince them not to cancel. This person goes on to suggest that their front porch may be too dark
and says that the front lights have to be left on. Reluctantly, JX agrees and begins to leave on the driveway light. Now this
newspaper was costing him even more to be delivered.

  This worked for a week or so then he went two days with no delivery at all. This was not the first time then paper was not
delivered but it was the straw that broke the camel's back. JX called customer service and told them he wanted to stop the
delivery. They, in turn, turned his call over to a retention specialist, we assume, named Ray. Of course, at first, this guy was
so sweet on the phone that a diabetic would need a shot of insulin just to talk to him. When Ray saw that JX was done and no
longer wanted the paper delivered, his entire attitude changed. First he wanted to know who lived with JX and if they too were
disabled and why didn't they go get the paper from the driveway for him. When JX explained the arrangement he made when
placing his order, this Ray informed him that these are motor routes cub side only. JX stopped the paper.

 Now, I have some words pf wisdom for this Ray guy....Just who in the hell do you think you are there spunky? How would you
like it if somebody spoke to a disabled relative of your the way you spoke to my friend? What in the hell gives you the right
Obama discussed the Rioting and Looting in Ferguson, MO, today, at a Press
Conference...Oh Boy!!!

By Jack Ryan
   President Obama held a press conference to discuss the mayhem going on in
Ferguson, MO? Why is the President of the United States of America  involved
in a riot that is happening as a result of a shooting? Why isn't the President of
the United States calling for the arrest, conviction and prosecution, to the
fullest extent of the law, of these rioters who are looting, burning businesses to
the ground and attacking the innocent public? Why is the President of the
United States sending The Attorney General to Ferguson? Why isn't the
President Showing support for the Police Department instead of a Pot smoker
accused of robbing a convenience store and assaulting a Police Officer, rioters
and looters? Oh, that's right! The accused shooter, a police officer, is white and
the pot smoker, rioters and looters are black.

  Of course, the regular circus is in Ferguson, Sharpton, Jackson and the new black panthers, fanning the flames of racism.
They are crying in the streets that this is all due to racism. They say Michael Brown was shot because he was black.
How about waiting for an investigation to be done? You know why? It's because if an
investigation is done, "people" like sharpton, jackson and the new black panthers would have no way to get their foolish
faces and names in the news.

  The president even mentioned the high amount of black and latino boys incarcerated. This upsets him and some in the
black and latino communities? Hey, if you'd like to cut down the number of your boys being locked up, teach them how to
obey the law, respect authority, and respect other people. Teach them that they have to work for what they want and need.
Lead your children by example. Loose the entitlement mentality. Don't accept drug use. Make your children attend school
and respect their teachers. This isn't just directed at the black and latino communities, it goes for all, black, brown, white or

  Making excuses for anti social behavior by the parents of these thugs is not acceptable, never mind by the President of
the United States. Criminals are Criminals and should be prosecuted, not excused.
