How about this for a compromise?

Sure, Janice, Dave H, David W, Gordy S, Marv and all you other bigots and bigotry defenders, go ahead and be bigots. Knock yourself out.
But could you just shut up about it in public so people don't think your archaic views represent the rest of us in Troy?
Your words and behavior are bad for business, bad for our children, bad for our schools, bad for our property values, bad for just about everything.
Sure you have a right to think whatever you want, but to proudly utter these things or defend them, on TV, in the press, all over social media is bad for our town and bad for your reputation.
So, put a sock in it, would ya?
Thank you.

  1. They all need to get back in their closet or wherever they crawled out of and leave the rest of us alone! We moved here because of the good schools and diversity! That is what Troy is all about.

  2. I've had enough of their hate speech. Troy Tea Party put some muzzles on your mad dogs. Anyone in whose bigoted brain, Thomas Jefferson, Jesus Christ and Ayn Rand co-exist as heroes in some muddled selective mis-interpretation is seriously messed up. And BTW, Rand celebrated the innovative, talented and creative individuals supposedly pitted against the machine in Atlas Shrugged (your guys favorite book and movie); innovative, talented and creative do not come to mind when I see you up on the public comment podium: more like dumb, incoherent and hating. Where's your and your leader, JD's talent, other than complaining and blaming other people for your problems?

  3. "In the fevered state of our country, no good can ever result from any attempt to set one of these fiery zealots to rights, either in fact or principle. They are determined as to the facts they will believe, and the opinions on which they will act. Get by them, therefore, as you would by an angry bull; it is not for a man of sense to dispute the road with such an animal."

    Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) Third president of the United States.
