OBTW, scroll down to the last paragraph about John Burton's final press conference.
Yet shoeless crackheads get free reign to bug the crap out of us wherever we go downtown...
Now, that's stupid. Let the kids sing, for Pete's sake!
Of course, if they were ten years older, wearing dog collars and wife beaters, singing "Its Raining Men," they would be celebrated for bringing "diversity" to San Francisco.
>>If a kid falls on the step, they're going to automatically sue Rec and Park and me.<<
Then bring a paper that the rep of the group signs for no liability and let them sing.
Mean people suck....
This encapsulates why I can never be a Democrat.
"And there is a whole liability issue. If a kid falls on the step, they're going to automatically sue Rec and Park and me."
So I take it that children are banned in TOTAL from the park, to prevent lawsuits?
After all, it matters not if they are a large group or an individual.
Sadly, California's major city governments do NOT reflect the opinions of most Californians. How these people continue to be elected for positions of management and
down-right common sense remains a mystery.
I don't see how my Aunt and Uncle live there.
He probably resented them calling it a Christmas Tree.
And that, as a justification, is just pure unadulterated BS
No that would ony happen if the opportunist were an atheistic Democrat with an ambulance-chasing trial lawyer in tow.
Had it been a group of fags in the park having a orgy, they probably would have allowed them to stay.
That's why I left.
Hey, there's a bunch of kids out in Chippewa Square singing right now.
This puts the people that organized the outing and the kids' parents in a difficult position. Do you tell the kids the truth, that some adults are just stupid and mean? Or do you make up an excuse so that the kids' respect for adults in general isn't diminished?
Moral Absolutes Ping.
A representative article about the hateful persecution of Christmas and those who want to celebrate it.
Let me know if anyone wants on/off this pinglist.
Note: For those of you who don't live on the west coast and may not be familiar with San Francisco, let me assure you that it is a filthy, vile place, and the sidewalks are crawling with incredibly stinky, repellent drug addicts, perverts of every description, offensive and aggresive beggars, thugs, and street musicians. Some of this human debris leave their excrement and urine wherever they please, as well as needles and other trash.
So the idea that clean, well behaved children are prevented from singing Christmas carols is nothing but nasty leftist hate and discrimination.
Are we in America? This makes me so angry. Wonder what is going thru the children's minds.
Everyones getting worked up over nothing. Most cities have policies that allow people to organize and conduct activities on government property if the group is small, say under 25 individuals. Over that, you have to get a permit, show liability insurance, add the city as an additional insured, etc.
The fact this happened to a bunch of young carolers is sad, but the adult organizers should not be laying the blame off on others when it was their fault for not checking with the city prior to the event.
On the other hand, PETA and anti-war goons get a free pass courtesy of the gay marriage counselor/mayor of SF.
