That's the problem..It wasn't the 'truth'. When a person gets appointed to a public office, that's what you do..represent ALL of the people, not just some of them because you're bigoted against the rest. It was good they kicked his ass to the curb. That's the problems with republican'ts, they only want to serve a select few that can add to their bank accounts, cry free speech while trying to silence everyone else! Typical hypocrisy.

One looks for impartiality in a potential Appeals Board member.

That is the worst case of Stockholm Syndrome I've ever heard pout of Hawaii.

These people are going to learn, just like the racists before them, that this kind of speech is not appropriate in public and will not be tolerated by the public.

"Freedom of speech" means you can't get arrested for it. It doesn't mean society can't shun you for it.

Welcome to liberal queer loving America. Our economy is in the toilet but who cares as long as we're nice to queers.

We don't care if degenerates like you are nice or not. It's about basic equality. Got a problem with that? Try Iran.

Under a democratic, liberal, sissy government, those who speak the truth are silenced.

It's not the truth, of course. That's the point. And spreading evil and lies about taxpayers in your state is a good way to get yourself in hot water.

As it should be.

Are you saying that all Republicans don't know the difference between lies and the truth?

Most of those that I know, do.

I guess you don't.

Shouldn't we "be nice" to all law-abiding, taxpaying, productive citizens?

What he said was right on the money but Oblahblah and the Demoncrats have turned this country upside down to where right is wrong and speaking the truth doesn't matter anymore.

The 14th amendment was created for blacks and slavery it has absolutely nothing to do with Homosexuality. Everyone has equal protection under the Constitution, homos want special protection, special rights, special laws to accommodate their CHOSEN lifestyle.

MY party will fight to strengthen and maintain the traditional family which is the foundation of our country.

Says who? He's also supposed to tell the truth...but then you liberals don't care about the truth, do you?

We'd rather have someone who tells the truth instead of a lying POS like the one you put in our WH.

I think Americans want leaders who tell the truth like Okino not one who lies just to muster some votes and maintain power like the lying fraud in our WH.
