Holy Crap
March 5, 2015

Republican State Representative Rick Miller is a man well-known to me. He is a neighbor of mine.

I had occasion to watch him and a few of his thugs “wreck” a local Democratic press conference. He stood by while air horns were blown into children’s ears and a 72 year old woman was pushed to the ground because somebody dared to run against Miller’s idol, Tom DeLay. Miller, who claims to be a veteran, stood by, smiled, and did nothing.

He was linked to an anonymous hate mail piece about a Republican Muslim candidate running for school board. He can deny it all he wants but everybody in town knows he did it.And he does all this because he is a Super DeLuxe Brand Christian.

Yesterday he gored the bull. He introduced legislation to undo LGBT protections enacted by cities. That’s right, the man who bellows “local control” wants big state government to overrule local folks.

As a result, state Rep. Rick Miller’s House Bill 1556 would undo LGBT protections passed by numerous cities, including Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston and Plano. Altogether more than 7.5 million Texas are covered by such ordinances.

But, it gets far worse.

Miller’s 41-year-old son, Beau, who is a respected lawyer in Houston, is a proud openly gay man.

Holy crap. I mean, think about that.

Beau Miller said he was “extremely disappointed” to hear about his father’s bill.

Boy, ain’t that an understatement? I cannot imagine how it feels to have your own father do this. It’s one thing if Miller had simply and quietly vote for the bill, but he wrote and introduced the damn thing.

Which brings us to: what kind of father doesn’t want to protect his son?

Hell, even God told Abraham not to kill Issac. You’d think a Super DeLuxe Brand Christian would know that.Miller says his motivations were economic.

“Competing and inconsistent local ordinances interfere with economic liberty and discourage business expansion. By promoting instead of restricting business growth, this bill is about job creation and an improved state economy, both of which have a direct, positive impact on Texas citizens.”

Dammit! Even the Mafia kept family out of business.

And you know that statement is hogwash because that would also mean that “inconsistent and competing” state laws should be overruled by the federal government. Right, Rick?

Even Darth Vader couldn’t bring himself to kill his son.

Jerk. There’s no job creation about this. This is just mean. To your own damn child. And that, my friends, is breathtakingly sad.

I just don’t understand that much hate.

Can you help us out?
