What next male waiters at Hooters?

As a kid I remember having our GHC Club. That was the “Girls have Cooties” Club, if you were wondering. Only boys, and more specifically, only local shoe shine boys, were members.

That was the early 1970s. I lived in the city streets of Boston, before it was cool to live in a city like that, by the waterfront, before there were such things as condos. I joined the Cub Scouts probably because my mom (a single mom) thought it would be good for me to get into the woods see what real trees and grass looked like, and so I would have strong male role models.

When we moved to live close to my cousins, my new Cub Scout den leader also happened to be my aunt. Eww! A girl was leading the boys. How could that be?

It was very different. I was a little boy who needed guidance, and I needed a man to teach me how to be a man. A plumber can’t teach you how to be a jeweler any more than a woman can teach a boy to be a man or a man can teach a little girl to be a woman.

The Boy Scouts of America recently decided, after years of pressure, to allow gays to be Scout leaders. The decision was based largely on corporate pressure applied by pro-gay companies that threatened to pull funding (which they have every right to do). As a result, the Boy Scouts are “re-thinking” their rules.

The BSA decided not to force local chapters to accept gays (which they also have every right to do). Good for them, for now. It’s only a matter of time.

Religious groups that have always supported the Boy Scouts in a big way are now re-thinking their involvement with the group as a result of this change.

President Obama recently said he thinks the Boy Scouts should allow gays at every level in the organization. Once again, the president thinks, then speaks, and the damage begins.

Is anything sacred? Is any group allowed to have its own set of rules and way of doing things?

Now, don’t get radical on me, I’m not talking the KKK; the last I heard, the Boy Scouts aren’t burning crosses on lawns.

Maybe we should disband the Girl Scouts, Boys Scouts, Eagle Scouts, Brownies, Cubs Scouts, Weebelos and just make one big “Gender Neutral Scouts” or just “Scouts.” Do you see how ridiculous this gets?

Leave the Boy Scouts alone. Leave the Girl Scouts alone. If you want to show strength and diversity the American way, start the LGBT Scouts or any other kind of “Scouting” you want. Because they are different – as different as boys are different from girls, and as men are different from women.

We should continue to have the freedom to allow clubs, groups and churches the ability to serve specific subsets of people with common interests and beliefs without government intervention.

Just because the president thinks the Boy Scouts should allow gays at all levels, that doesn’t mean it’s the way things should be. This is a private organization. The government should be concerned with jobs and the economy, not interfering with the mission and goals of an organization it “feels” is not being fair to all human beings.

What’s next? Do Asian-American clubs now have to grant membership to those with Italian, Greek or whatever heritage? Will Hooters be forced to have male waitresses? I could fill up one of those T-shirts, but there wouldn’t be any people at my tables.

The government has no business getting involved in every aspect of our lives, every club, every organization or business. And the president doesn’t have all of the answers. Otherwise, we wouldn’t continue to be sinking deeper into the mess we’re in as a nation.

George LeMieux Takes Disgusting to a Whole New Level in Campaign E-Mail Bashing Connie Mack, Tea Party and Hooters

Soon to be ex- U. S.  Senator George LeMieux recently sent out a campaign email letter that shows everyone just why Mr. LeMieux will not stand a snowball’s chance in you-know-where of winning the Florida U.S. Senate seat in the 2012 elections.

He not only disgustingly piles on unwarranted personal attacks on Rep. Connie Mack in this nasty campaign letter, but also trashes Hooters restaurants and  grassroots Tea Party voters at the same time – whose support he will undoubtedly need to win the election.

First, let’s put the email out here for all to see, so Floridians can see for themselves just what a low-life Charlie Crist appointed, power-hungry piece of misguided elitist trash Mr. LeMieux turns out to be… in his own words. Of course, while these types of low life personal attack dogs are usually found in the fake democratic party of today, Mr. LeMieux shows he is not above taking pages out of the Democratic Attack Machine’s political playbook. He even uses a Liberal attack dog’s written words instead of his own to somehow try to hide behind the political activist at The Miami Herald, Frank Cerabino, who is  posing as a journalist. From the Elect George  LeMieux homepage:

Cerabino: Underachiever Connie Mack IV perfect for Senate seat. (emphasis mine)

To: U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV

From: Cerabino Image Makeover ­Specialists Inc.

Subject: Tidying up your résumé

First of all, congratulations, Mr. Mack. You haven’t even officially declared yet to run for a Florida seat in the U.S. Senate and you’re already the front-runner in the polls. This is great news.

We here at CIMS can’t wait for the big announcement, because we feel that you embody everything that Floridians have come to expect as our representative in the highest legislative body in the land.

This is why we have volunteered our services to help you address some questions that might arise when nosy nellies start poking into your background.

It’s best to figure out good answers in advance.

So we have taken the liberty of fashioning responses that ought to appeal to the Republican base you have already dazzled.

Issue No. 1: Work experience.

Problem: Before trading on the name of your father (a U.S. senator) to begin your current career as a full-time servant of the people in 2001, the most meaningful employment you had was as a “special events coordinator” for a bunch of Hooters restaurants. Boiled down to its essence: You were the go-to guy for folks who wanted to have scantily clad waitresses appear at their events.

Solution: You will be effective in a Democratic-controlled Senate, because you already know what it’s like being surrounded by a bunch of boobs.

Issue No. 2: Education.

Problem: Despite being a legislator with a stated passion for education, you needed 6½ years to get an undergraduate degree in advertising, which you accomplished three months shy of your 26th birthday.

Solution: You’re not one of those educational “elites.” This will give you significant inroads with the tea party voters, who believe Ivy League educations and law-review honors are flaws.

Issue No. 3: Lawsuit trouble.

Problem: You once sued Ron Gant, an outfielder for the Atlanta Braves, for beating you up in a barroom fight.

Solution: It was not a frivolous lawsuit. The jury awarded you monetary damages.

So let’s try to set Mr. LeMieux’s intended message straight here shall we?

 Issue 1 –LeMieux and Cerbino trash Florida’s Hooters restaurant chain, because Rep.Connie Mack once worked for Hooters restaurants . Hooters restaurants are world famous for chicken wings, tailgate parties and a general all around place for friends to get together for good times and great food. HOA Restaurant Group, LLC is the Atlanta-based operator and franchiser of over 455 Hooters locations in 44 states in the US, Argentina, Aruba, Austria, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Columbia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, England, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Korea, Mexico, Paraguay, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan and the Virgin Islands. The privately held corporation owns 160 units.

And in case Mr. LeMieux and his Liberal attack dog Mr. Cerabino are unaware of the facts about Florida’s much beloved Hooters restaurants, the very first Hooters restaurant was founded in Clearwater, Florida. And yes they have beautiful girls working there, as is the case of probably 99% of American restaurants in business today. So Rep. Connie Mack worked for Hooters over 20 years ago. Why is Hooters being trashed in an attack-ad posing as an op-ed in a Florida newspaper, by a U.S. Senator who is currently begging to remain in that appointed seat that was given to him by the biggest flake Florida has ever had the disgrace to call it’s Governor, Republican, turned Democrat turned Independent, Charlie Crist? Let’s hope every Floridian reading this takes the time to tell Mr. LeMieux and Mr. Cerbino just what they think of their bashing Florida’s very own Hooters restaurants.

 

 

Issue 2- Education- LeMieux and Cerabino tell us Rep. Mack took (gasp!) 6 ½ years to finish college! Then they use that statement to refer to Tea Party voters across America as some kind of uneducated neanderthals: “ You’re not one of those educational “elites.” This will give you significant inroads with the tea party voters, who believe Ivy League educations and law-review honors are flaws.”     Well considering the blatant ignorance concerning the rule of law that is being shown by Harvard law professor extraordinaire Barack Obama today, I suppose many people just might view a Harvard law degree as an award of ignorance instead of a degree in higher learning. When Harvard and other elitist Ivy league schools start actually start putting out real lawyers instead of Liberal politicians posing as law professors, we just might start taking a Harvard law degree seriously. Until then, it will remain nothing more than the joke of a law professor named Barack Hussein Obama. Clear enough? Tea Partiers do believe in higher education, one that actually translates into a career in the private sector workforce, not one that creates nothing more than fake liberal lawyers to be injected into our political system under the guise of being “scholarly.”

Issue 3 – Lawsuit (gasp!) trouble: Rep. Connie Mack got into a bar fight decades ago in which he was awarded damages. (so says Mr. Cerabino and Senator LeMieux)) An article from augusta.com reveals that, after eight hours of deliberations over two days, the jury found that Gant, who still lives in the Atlanta area, started the fight but was not responsible for injuries to Mack. And this tidbit of fact: - “A Cobb County State Court jury on Friday decided not to award any damages in a civil suit involving former Atlanta Braves outfielder Ron Gant.

The jury ruled that each side would have to pay its own attorneys’ fees.  Retract your lies Mr. Cerabino, and Mr. LeMieux owes Rep. Mack a public apology immediately.

Rep. Connie Mack jumped into the lead in all major polls before he even formally announced that he would be running for the Republican primary to take on the big Liberal debt-spender and current U.S. Senator Bill Nelson for his U. S. Senate seat in 2012. And then we see this nasty piece of slander put out by George LeMieux while hiding behind the journalistic skirt of the libelous liberal Mr. Cerabino, he of the far left rag known today as the Miami Herald. Shame on both of you!

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!
