Saving the Republic – That’s where we are.


If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools.
-Plato-

This one happened in Indianapolis, but, it is something that the Obama administration is doing too. This is not good.

It all started out with a business that was requested to make “rainbow cupcakes” for October 2nd, which is National Coming out day. For the gay in our society. The bakery refused saying that they didn’t think that their daughters needed to be exposed to that. Now they are being sued. Give me a break. Like Greg Garrison said this morning. Give me some oxygen….I’ll be right back.

A trans-gendered group, I think from IUPUI, (Indiana University/Purdue University Indianapolis) who wanted to have a big “coming out”party for the students at IUPUI. They went to “Just Cookies” and asked them to bake cupcakes. Rainbow Cupcakes.

Because the Indianapolis officials decided to take action against this bakery for not doing the cupcakes, we made the national news. The place, “Just Cookies” Lilly Stockton, an owner said, “We don’t make cupcakes. We are not set up to do that. We make cookies and don’t want to do it.” And as far as I am concerned, that should have been the end of it. But, it wasn’t.

If this had been the Colts, or the Broncos or the Cowboys, it wouldn’t have gone any farther than that. But this place, “Just Cookies” had the temerity to say “NO” to this gay group, and I don’t say this disparagingly either….because that is what they advertise themselves as, and this got Just Cookies into trouble.

Lilly Stockton spoke first, saying what she did above. The next was Dave Stockton, the other owner, Lilly’s husband…..and the Father of the Stockton family. He had a different reason for not wanting to do it. He explained, “We are a family owned business and we have two impressionable young daughters, and we thought maybe it was best not to do that.”

Enter the city officials. Robert Vane. “The city’s position is, it’s the city’s market. It’s a public place.” I am sorry Robert, but, I agree with Greg Garrison, lawyer and host of the Garrison show on WIBC in the mornings. That is where you went wrong. Mistake number one…….

The ownership of this place may be the cities, but, the lease doesn’t belong to anyone but the tenant, for the purposes of operating it’s business. You can tell people they can’t sell rotten meat because that is a health hazard, but this Human Rights thing that went through, cannot apply to an independant leaseholder. I got this information from Greg Garrison, lawyer. He says: “Legally I just don’t see how it can.”

The cities spokesman says that they are inquiring into the bakery “Just Cookies” because they declined to do this. City’s position is” This is a public place. There is no litmus test for buying services or products at the market. And with this statement, Robert, the Stockton’s win according to Garrison. “Your statement there is game, set, match. If there’s no litmus test, then I might sell to you, or refuse to sell to you as I see fit, in my premises. Period.

“I don’t want to topple anybody at all,” Rebecca Scherpelz told Fox 59. “I just think it’s important we ask ourselves and Just Cookies asks themselves why they made the statement, why they’re making these choices and how it’s ultimately affecting their business and the community as a whole.” First off Rebecca, I think they said why they made the statement. Twice. Once because they make cookies. They are not set up to make cupcakes and didn’t want too. And because they have two impressionable girls, who they didn’t want exposed to this. Can’t you listen? The Fox News article goes on to say: The controversy has prompted an Indianapolis radio station to hold a “Gay Cupcake Party” on Friday. As of early Wednesday, nearly 400 people had indicated that they planned to attend the event.

Vane, meanwhile, said city officials are working to determine whether the order was refused because the bakery couldn’t provide the desired product or because something else was at play.

“It’s the other proprietor stating his personal views, that’s the problem, because that’s not the image of the City Market and the image Mayor Ballard is trying to portray,” Vane told FoxNews.com. “That’s beyond the pale.”

My question here is, how is being a parent, and trying to make the world a place that you want your children to grow up in, a bad thing and beyond the pale?

What happened to the liberal leanings of the establishment, where the children had to be protected, no matter what? I guess parents not wanting their children to be subjected to the gay lifestyle isn’t one of those things ….HUH? The article goes on with the city’s stupidity as they continued:
Stevi Stoesz, a spokeswoman for City Market, a nonprofit organization with a 13-member board of directors, said officials there found the bakery’s alleged conduct inappropriate.

“As a public marketplace, we find it unacceptable, and this is very much an equal accommodations establishment,” Stoesz told FoxNews.com. “We are working with the mayor’s office and city [attorneys] to resolve the issue expediently.”

Rea Carey, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, said the “truly unfortunate” incident should be investigated.

“Rainbow cupcakes are simply a tasty way to celebrate values of diversity and acceptance,” Carey said in a statement to FoxNews.com. “That anyone would object to serving them is truly unfortunate. Acts of possible discrimination should always be taken seriously and investigated.”

It seems that no one listened when the Owners of “Just Cookies” said that they didn’t do cupcakes. They did cookies. Apparently, wanting to protect your children isn’t a good enough reason to do things like this. What a bunch of liberal hogwash. This is where the wrongheadedness turns deceptive, and the officiousness meter gets banged to the pinstop, as Garrison said. “It’s none of your business who they sell their products to. And this crap about the community as a whole just infuriates me. Its the same thing with these officious Pompous folks, with their ceaseless, endless, incessant perpetual attack against smoking outside, and in people’s private businesses.”

Now, I bring this up, mainly because this is the kind of thing that we are seeing all over this nation now. The liberals have been running amok for years now, and under cover for decades, pushing the agendas that they want to force on the rest of us, no matter what we think. That is the reason that this coming election in November is so very important. You either vote for liberals, or for America. You can’t have both. That is where we are now. We are at the point where the Republic needs us to fight for her. If we vote the liberals back in, then we have let the Republic of America die. It is as plain as that. And I know that Conservative Americans want America to survive, even though the liberals don’t. I hope that most Americans feel as I do….that America needs to survive….and vote to save her this November, and in 2012. Don’t let the liberals fool you into thinking that they have changed. Because it isn’t possible.

It comes back to what Plato said. If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools. The evidence is in Washington now.

God Bless America, her troops, her allies and her people
God Bless my readers, my listeners on BTR and my viewers on You Tube….

I am a Reagan Conservative, who is very alarmed at the Liberals who have just lost their majority over our government, but continue to act like it never happened. They have to be stopped. NOW or even sooner.

    Great post, Robert! This is similar to how gays tried to define the Boy Scouts as a “public accomodation” in order to deprive them of their right to set their own leadership requirements. Now it’s “Just Cookies”, a private business, that’s being called a “public place” in order to deprive it of the freedom to make its own business decisions.

    While I understand why some gays were offended by “Just Cookie’s” choice not to bake rainbow cupcakes, that’s the nature of freedom. People can’t be required in either their personal, religious or business lives to support lifestyles they disagree with. What gays should’ve done was simply find a bakery that would’ve been happy to bake the pro-gay cupcakes. That would’ve been a win-win situation for everyone involved. But gays don’t want anyone to be free to disagree with and not support their sexuality. That’s the crux of the matter. That’s why economic, civil, and religious liberty are threatened by the advancement of gay rights. I don’t hate gay people, but if gay rights means the reduction of liberty for others I must, at the very least, think twice about supporting them. I don’t want there to be another “Just Cookies”.
    reply from Robert: The point that is being missed here, is the place, “Just Cookies” was set up to bake, just cookies. They were not set up to make cupcakes. They had the right to refuse….no matter what the reason was. And I think that the reason about the daughters was a good one.
