Proof that there are still conservatives that are D's:

The Most Political Obituary EVER

"Well, on Monday, Philadelphia native Elaine Fydrych‘s obituary was published by the South Jersey Times. After going through her hobbies and love of theater, she gave her mourners one last laugh with some important instructions.

“In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary Clinton.”

Fydrych’s widowed husband Joseph spoke to Fox about her last words, where he said that she was becoming increasingly distrustful of Clinton the more she heard about her.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JY0RCoRwP5s

Of course she was old and on her deathbed when she said that...which lends credence to my observation in another thread on how the word retired seems to have become synonymous with retarded.

Yep...the drip drip drip attacks from the right has had an effect on the gullible.


The gullible are the folks that believe Cenk Uygur.

Fydrych’s husband, Joseph, said in an interview that she followed the Benghazi hearings, and that began to turn her against Hillary.

When I watched the Benghazi hearings, they were only available on CSPAN.

Well as your quote of me indicates...no mention of Fox news.

There are conservative democrats as well as conservative republicans.

The old and feeble-minded are more likely to be conservative...and gullible as well.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Must be Michigan's economic recovery has been so great that we don't need these employees any longer...

maybe they could transfer them over to MDOT and they could work their magic on the roads ;) ;) ;)

I am not a fan of this woman, but U.S. Federal Laws do demand that an employer made reasonable accommodations:

The law requires an employer or other covered entity to reasonably accommodate an employee's religious beliefs or practices, unless doing so would cause more than a minimal burden on the operations of the employer's business. This means an employer may be required to make reasonable adjustments to the work environment that will allow an employee to practice his or her religion.

http://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/religion.cfm


I know that is the law as far as private sectors go and so it most likely carries over to same or similar for employees in a government agency too.  However, in this case she was 'elected' to the job and is the head of that particular 'agency'. 

I understand that suddenly the rules have changed so she should make a decision to either uphold the 'new' rules (issue the licenses) or resign from the job.

I'm somewhat familiar with that area and her skillset from working all those years for her Mom in the clerk's office probably qualifies her for the midnight shift at the local Circle K...   considerably short of the $80K plus benefits she's making now.

I see our neighbors to the south are likely to default on 1.3 million they owe to the regional jail. 

Wonder how many will end up in the Igloo if they are forced to close?

And if Toledo can't pay what they previously agreed to pay to their own regional jail what makes you think they'll suddenly magically be able to pay Monroe County?

I thought Monroe County was already having jail overcrowding issues of our own ??? ??? ???

This Republican debate started off pretty entertaining, but is quickly becoming boring. I hope Trump sticks around in the race for quite awhile.

The plane inside of a building reminds me of the last time we had a Republican president.

Only watching in and out, but my view of Carly is much different. We'll wait for the talking heads to tell us what we should think of the three-hour extravaganza.
