"Small Government" Republicans Learn Their Porking Ways Young


Here's NY State Senator Greg Ball, who is copiously advertising the tony Greenwhich, Connecticut, Victory Cup:

The last thing a deploying soldier should have to worry about when they go to war is whether they’ll have a job when they come home,” Chairman Ball said. “This is the least we can do for our brave men and women who put their lives on the line, and on hold, for this country.”

The legislation was created following the layoffs of Army Sergeants Anddy Moreno and Alvin Taylor, who were let get by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) last year while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. The bill says that no public employer in New York shall abolish a position occupied by a person absent on military duty, based solely upon the fact that the positions are filled by individuals engaged in military duty."

Isn't that special. Job rights from American Conservatism.

Meanwhile, this pandering young Senator? Well, he's decided that he can't vote for marriage for committed gay couples. Apparently there is no way Big Government can "protect" his religious constituents enough (which we can infer because the coward won't specify what he wants).

Seriously. This is what passes for conservative "thought" these days, a microcosm of exactly what it is.
