Saturday Ramblings

We opined the other day that the Confederate battle flag has to go with regard to its display on government properties, and we stand by that. But those who think it a less than compelling issue, well, they have a point and it should be acknowledged. With all the other troubles in the world, an old flag isn't all that important. And considering that many who support its removal are grandstanding in light of a terrible human tragedy should put the right spin on the question too: are they in it on principle or simply looking for easy political points? The Charleston massacre and removing the banner are indeed two separate issues. They ought to be seen that way.

Gay marriage (we will always address it that way) is now the rule in the United States. But don't worry, religious institutions are protected from it. No religious organization will be forced to sanction a homosexual arrangement. It won't happen.

Right. Twenty years ago gay marriage wasn't supposed to happen and see how quickly that changed. Don't think this won't, or can't, change either. Now that acting out on homosexuality is a civil right, let's wait and see how much longer your civil right to freedom of religion will last. Whenever there's a conflict of rights one set of rights will lose. We have a bad feeling over which one will in this instance.

It is interesting that all those liberals who cried foul that George W. Bush was supposedly elected President by the single vote of a Supreme Court justice now find it okay that a single justice could overturn not simply American law but universal justice. Hypocrisy, they name is progressive?

Has anyone in Michigan considered that if we were to have taken the money being poured into a three mile light rail on Woodward Avenue in Detroit into fixing the roads in all of Michigan, many of them could get fixed on that money alone, and in the more general interest? Just wondering.

See y'all next time.
