She simply doesn't want to be tread upon

She simply doesn't want to be tread upon.
When 23-year-old Megan Geller was fired from her waitperson job at an Outback Steakhouse in Crystal Lake, Ill., in early October, she felt she was being discriminated against for her political leanings. Geller had been wearing a bright yellow bracelet with the words "Don't Tread On Me" inscribed on it "for months,".  
But after a couple that she was waiting on complained about the bad service they said they were receiving, Geller was let go from her job. And Geller says it was because the couple complained about the bracelet's tea party association.

The management at Outback rejected the notion that Geller was fired for any political affiliation.  "Miss Geller was not let go because of her 'tea party' bracelet" Outback's chief legal officer, Joseph Kadow, said. "On the night in question two separate tables complained about her lack of attention."

When Geller was approached about the complaints, she allegedly responded with an outburst, and Outback says that it was that behavior which prompted her dismissal. For its part, Outback reported to the Illinois Department of Employment that Geller was fired for misconduct. However, the chain is not contesting Geller's claim for unemployment benefits which would be considered normal when an employee is fired for misconduct.

 Wwhile the tea party movement has sought to embrace the image at rallies, often through attaching the emblem to the American flag, the Gadsen is in fact as inclusive an American image as they come. Having been used as a symbol of defiance throughout U.S. history, it was originated during the Revolutionary War. As the website Navy Jack, which is devoted to the flag, reports, the "Don't Tread On Me" rattlesnake was originally a symbol of resistance to British rule in America.

One wonders that if you have a DON'T TREAD ON ME flag on the back of your car, would a trouper arrest you if another motorist complained?  

Yes.  We HAVE reached that point.

Theoretically, smallpox has been eradicated, yet some evil scientist (such as in Iran or some other country bent on world domination) could release the germs. And is this another excuse for "Obamacare"?

Scientists are questioning a $433 million government contract for a smallpox drug they say the country doesn't need, amid concerns over the way the project was secured for a firm tied to a Democratic donor. 
The Los Angeles Times reported over the weekend that U.S. officials took unusual steps to award the contract to Siga Technologies. Democratic donor Ronald Perelman has the controlling share of the company. 

The article cited emails showing the Obama administration replaced the lead negotiator on the project following complaints from Siga -- Siga was apparently concerned about the government's objections to how much money Siga would make off the deal. 

Earlier, in December, the government also reportedly blocked other companies from bidding on the contract in a second round. 

Siga ultimately won the contract in May, but some questioned the price of the drug -- approximately $255 per dose -- and the practicality of the project. 

The government already has a smallpox vaccine on reserve. Siga's pill is meant to help people diagnosed too late for the vaccine to be effective, according to the Times. 

But the drug has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and there are limits on how it can be tested. 

One epidemiologist described the plan as a "waste of time and a waste of money." 

But Nicole Lurie, the Department of Health and Human Services official in charge of biodefense, told the Times the contract was granted on merit. And she cited a 2004 study showing a "material threat" that smallpox could be a biological weapon. 

A Perelman representative also told the newspaper that his political donations merely represent "his right" to support candidates.


Janitors in 97 and 98 SAW Jerry Sandusky showering with the boys.  The first janitor now " suffers from dementia" (convenient?)

1992 on the Friday before Spring Break, McQuery was going to drop off the shoes and pick up tapes, he sees Sandusky sodomizing a 10 year old boy.  Both saw him see them.  McQuery walked out of the locker room.  He did tell his own father and the next morning the two McQuerys went to Joe Paterno and clearly told him what he saw but Paterno said that he didn't want to hear 'the dirty details' but that he wanted to talk to the athletic dept. chair and then he said that Sandusky only 'fondled' the boy.  Yet, McQuery states that he was clear what he saw and what he told Paterno.  My question is why didn't the then 28 year old McQuery try to smack down Sandusky physically and stop him instead of abandoning the child alone with his molester in the shower?  What must that child have felt?  Did he internalize that even a higher person did not protect him, then what hope did that child have about the good in humanity?

IT WAS PATERNO WHO MINIMIZED IT AND DELAYED REPORTING WHICH IS A CLEAR VIOLATION OF LAW.  How many MORE kids were abused since that date because Paterno, Curley and the president of Penn State did NOT do their legal duties to report and follow it up?

Tim Curley, the head of athletics is being charged with lying to a grand jury.

Pen State allowed Sandusky to keep an office on campus for his 'charities' which included access to the very showers where he had anal sex with children.

As late as yesterday, the Penn State bookstore carried Sandusky's autobiography "TOUCHED".  Weird?  When he retired Sandusky took a lump payment of $140,000 and he also gets about $60,000 a year.  The president who covered this up will get $27,000 a month of the taxpayers' money.

Three years ago, Sandusky was a volunteer coach in a Harrisburg high school.   mom became alerted when a kid wanted to know why her son asked her how to find a database for 'sexual wierdos'.  She then found out that Sandusky had been taking her son out of his classes without her permission.  When the principal called the student into his office and queried him, the whole sordid thing came out.  And right before this, Sandusky had asked the mother for permission to 'punish' him.  Ever had a person ask for permission to punish your child?

The victims who are now adults will look at the Penn State, county and state officials who DID NOTHING to protect them.  Now they are getting the scope and names of the ones who allowed the abuse to continue.  How many more will now find the courage to speak out?

Will Penn State survive?  Who will want to go there?  Will students transfer out?  It's not an inexpensive school to attend.  Will they be able to afford to pay high salaries to attract good faculty?  Will good faculty 'retire' early?

The student demonstrations that took place when Paterno was fired was another example of the poor quality of education since we've had a federal department of so-called education.  What they have taught is 'feelings' not facts and how to use facts to arrive at a truth in a logical way of thinking.  They only want people to 'react' which is a way to manipulate people to support illogical agendas.

As horrible as these charges are, the story gets worse as it continues to unfold into a larger picture of apparent cover-ups, abuse of power and neglect of basic human responsibility.
This scandal has permeated the various halls and offices of that Pennsylvania institution, and now the reputations and integrity of many of those in power during these alleged molestations are being called into question.

BHO's questionable moral compass

First it was the racist Jerimiah Wright now ....

President Obama’s spiritual adviser is Rev. Jim Wallis, who also heads Sojourners, a leftist religious group that calls for wealth redistribution. Obama received so much flack with his first spiritual adviser, the outspoken Marxist Rev. Jeremiah Wright that he felt compelled to find another Marxist that wasn’t so vocal about his radical views.

When I first looked into the Sojourners a few years back, it was clear to even the most rudimentary reader that this was something of which to be wary.  While the surface objectives, peace and justice, seem non-threatening, their progressive methods are clearly socialist.  Remember that some European political parties are 'Christian Socialists', which have proven to be absolute lies.  Remember to look at what people DO, not what they say.


Sojourners: Christians for Justice and Peace

Perhaps this is why we absolutely need to avoid and established church.... to avoid this sort of thing.

They are even against providing Christmas gifts to poor children on the basis that many of the gifts given are substandard and made by unfair conditions.  They prefer to hold the exchange or giving of gifts hostage to their own agenda, sublimating the basic goodness instincts of humans.

So do the poor kids in Appalachia or the ghettos care or would they prefer to have SOMETHING under the tree?

If they don't like your opinion..... they cancel you.

Who says that 'threats' don't work.  An Anti-Sharia Law conference was cancelled by the hotel when the Southern Anti-Poverty Law Center started a smear campaign.  Is this the America you want?  or is this the new AMERIKA???

the following is from FRONT PORCH POLITICS:

Hotel boots anti-sharia conference

Nashville, TNA terrorism expert and Islam watchdog says a Nashville hotel has caved to Islamic supremacism.

The Tennessee Freedom Coalition describes itself as a group dedicated to keeping sharia law from being established in the United States. It had booked space for November 11 at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville to host a 300-person event called "The Constitution or Sharia: Preserving Freedom Conference" -- and event touted as the first national conference on sharia and the "Islamization of America."

But Fox News has reported that when hotel officials learned that sharia critics Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer were scheduled to speak, they promptly canceled the event and returned the deposit, citing security concerns.

Spencer says there is no excuse for the hotel's decision.

Robert Spencer"The hotel manager in Nashville is actually contradicting himself because he is invoking smear reports on us by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League -- and then claiming that he doesn't have any problem with what we say, [that] it's just about the threats," he describes.

"But in any case, even if it is just about the threats, instead of standing up and not letting terrorism succeed, they are encouraging more of it by giving in," Spencer concludes.

As a result of the Hutton Hotel's action, organizers have moved the event to Cornerstone Church in Nashville.

"We are not going to allow ourselves to become marginalized," Spencer tells OneNewsNow. "We represent the point of view of the majority of Americans regarding Islam and jihad. We are going to not allow the Islamic supremacists to run us out of the public square."

Other schedules speakers include Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, David French of the American Center for Law & Justice, and Andrea Lafferty of Traditional Values Coalition.

The Hutton Hotel is owned by Amerimar Enterprises.

The Amerimar Entertises owns the following... the list is to suggest you do not patronize their properties if you can avoid them and that you let them know why. They own the hotels, apartments,  office buildings and multi-use facilities.Amerimar Enterprises
