BS, everything is about Obama. I just introduced him to the thread a little early, that's all. But how long can you beat up on the cop for not wanting to stand watch over a friggen gay pride parade?

Nobody can be this dumb. If he is a cop his job requires he do his work. Not the parts he likes. Where the fu*k do you work?

I havent beat up on the cop but I will. He's a wus. You dont get to pick and choose who to defend as a policeman. why would you even think that is possible? say he was called to serve at a republican national convention and he is a democrat. do you think he should let his politics get in the way of that? ridiculous.

Partially right Dave. But Obama was campaigning against Hillary for awhile too and the voters picked Obama instead of Hillary. Know why? Sure you do, because he was black. Period. The black populaces would vote for anyone, regardless of their qualifications (and regardless of the previous administration's performance), purely on the basis of his being a man of color.

Up until 2 years ago (when I retired) I was CEO of a software company. We wrote software to convert paper checks into electronic transactions and process them through the ACH network. Why, are you looking for a job?

Just for the record (for both you and Mikeyy) I already said he should have done what he was told, and just for the reasons that you both have recited. He's a public servant and if he expects to keep his job he's gonna have to do what he's told.

But I also applaud him standing up for how he feels. Live and let live. What's the big deal anyway? Have another officer work the parade in his place. But no, in this politically correct world we can't possible have an officer that doesn't endorse the gay lifestyle.

Maybe, Do they require you to be there everyday? Does it pay a lot and do I get a hot secretary? Answer the first one first..

He has to defend people.
Nobody is asking him to "defend the rights of ... opinions"
The fact you would even toss that out there shows how absurdly convoluted your thinking is.

There is no right taken away here.


So, 40yearfan, YOU brought up a police officer protecting the KKK.
To use your own analogy, do you think a police officer should be able to refuse to protect KKK members?

Regardless of how you feel about the Richard Simmons crowd, the cop is wrong. He doesn't get to pick and choose what functions he works. He's there to make sure no one gets rowdy and whatever else his department tells him to do.

How bad can working a gay parade be? Sure, listening to the Culture Club all day and seeing people running around half-naked wearing leather chaps and colorful boas can be numbing to the brain, but there's a lot more crappier jobs out there.
