A Fire Chief, Social Media and Gender Identity Last week Statter911.com reported that Charlotte, North Carolina, deputy fire chief Jeff Dulin was in the hot seat for a posting from his personal Facebook page. The image appears to show the famed athlete Bruce Jenner on the iconic cereal box as Olympic champion and then again […]

Some Power Play? Philly.com reports that, “A Philadelphia paramedic has alleged that about a dozen fellow Fire Department employees pressured her into sex – including a supervisor and two Fire Academy instructors – over a four-year period, according to a source with knowledge of the woman’s account.” Indeed, one of the assignations is said to […]

According to media, Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran, a former US Fire Administrator, has been terminated for lack of judgment in publishing and disseminating a book which compares homosexuality to bestiality and pederasty and for giving it to employees, some of whom complained. Cochran and others, including the Georgia Baptist Convention, charge that his religious […]

You’re On Mikvah Camera The religious world, or at least a segment of it, was shaken recently by the news of Washington Rabbi Barry Freundel’s arrest on charges of voyeurism. The Rabbi is alleged to have videotaped female congregants and others as they disrobed and used a ritual bath known as a “mikvah.” Freundel, in addition […]

Providence: A HoMo Horror

Entry Img

The Ideology of Queerness? In 2001, Providence, R.I., firefighters drove a rig in a Gay Pride parade. Thirteen years later, that drive is the subject of a R.I. State Supreme Court case. Firefighters allege that their rights of free speech and religion were violated by then Mayor Vincent A. Cianci Jr.’s edict to participate. The Providence Journal […]

Smile For the Camera Does our collective heart go out to soon-to-be former Navy War College professor John Schindler whose penis was apparently tweeted, so to speak? Perhaps not. The tweet was of a text message which  included a different sort of  member ID. Included in the press coverage is an email purportedly written by Mr. Schindler. […]

Texas VP Curtis Dunn: Queers OK

Fire Fighters Vice President Supports Same Sex Stuff I wrote yesterday about General President Schaitberger’s betrayal of Darren Bates’s fundamental union rights. In reply, Texas Association’s Curtis Dunn commented: “In all due respect Eric, are you dating Darren Bates, that seems to be the focal point of most of your post…..and hey there is nothing […]

What’s Next for Virginia’s Firefighters?

Terry and the Cooch Only a Ken Cuccinelli could pave the way for a Terry McAuliffe to emerge as victor of the gubernatorial race in Virginia. McAuliffe’s improbability as a successful candidate is matched only by Cuccinelli's fatal and self-inflicted fascist social rhetoric. McAuliffe has no elected governing experience and his chief accomplishment is his […]

  A “Butch” Too Far Just when you thought it was safe to bite into that coconut macaroon, out pops radio evangelist Kevin Swanson. Swanson blames it on the Girl Scouts and “it” is big: ”lesbianism”, abortion and perhaps worst of all, financial skills. We would be hard-pressed to say which is worse. And, Swanson […]

  Real Housewives Move Over We forget that Anthony was a “dick” to his staff when he was in congress. This from an episode where he thought his staff forgot to give him some information: “His scheduler, John J. Graff, who was in the next room, suddenly heard the congressman yelling at him through the […]

Maybe when the Democratic Party gets back to being the party of the working man and woman and stops taking on every other cause and affliction that grabs a headline, the firefighters of the IAFF will not wear yellow shirts in public and then "go red" in the voting booth. The height of hypocrisy. Feel…

Sounds like a great adventure Eric. That part of Mexico is much different than a Texas border town.

Eric I am shocked that someone as intelligent as you would go for the simple race card. That is just way too easy my friend. I thought you could do better at finding some real issues with Ted other than labeling him as a racist right from the get go. I really don't like what…

The left's heads are exploding early.....all the snow this winter has caused a lot of pent up anxiety. Hopefully you don't subscribe to MSNBC's Jamilah Lemieux, who thinks that those who listen to country music are evil racists.....just because Rafael said he likes a little country music....SMH
