What is with these people??? There priorities are all mixed up. They enjoy the rights they have but they ignore and disrespect the ones that gave them to them. It’s really an insult to the freedoms of American’s to use such an iconic symbol as the Statue of Liberty to support the suppression of the equality of life and freedoms that we as American’s all enjoy.
There are a lot of men and woman who have fought and died for that symbol of freedom the Statue of Liberty and yes some were gay and lesbian. They fought and died in the defense of this country and the protection of all our rights. I’m just grateful that these people weren’t selective in who they were dying for. In fact, even thou you are still trying to deny them something that is really none of your business at all they are still fighting and dying to protect you and your rights. If I have to show respect with my vote it has to go to them.
To all these people and groups that are trying to deny these people the quality of life that some of them have fought and died for Why don’t you spend your money on something worthwhile like helping the disabled vets of this state or the hungry and the homeless . But be careful some of them may be gay also.
They may own the word but not varaitions of the word that may sound like it. How about calling the games the "Redneck Olimpnic's" after all isn't that the way rednicks would spell it???? No insult intended!
If you think you are being ripped off do something about it. These days of digital pumps make it easy to check if a pump is accurate. Get a one gallon gas container Measure a VERY ACCURATE! gallon of fluid into the can and mark the can. Use a measuring cup if you have to. You can see through the container enough to see the fluid level. Next time you go gas up take the can with you and pump in exactly one gallon and see how it measures up to your line. If your initial fluid measurement and mark on the can are accurate any deviation in the gas level from the mark you made will indicate an an error in the pumps reading. At todays prices even an 1/8th of an inch below that line is a measureable amount of gas perhaps .5-.10 cents worth add that up for evey gallon purchased and you can see how quickly you are loseing money and imagine just how much the stations are making. Keep the can with you. Practice the procedure a few times and it will become very easy. If that first gallon measures out low stop there and get your gas elsewhere!
I know one time I took my motorcycle into the Mobile station on 196 in Lewiston. To my surprise according to their pump I was able to put 2.6 gallons in a tank that only had a 2.2 gallon capacity. My fill up went from from an average of $8 to a whopping $10. My bike never held so much gas and it never will again because I will never go to that station again. That’s when I made my measured gas can for my car and I do use it
