Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.

Weird! I didnt see in the article who sponsored the parade? It read like the city of New York didnt, which I think is also weird. When I was a park ranger in Central Park, we ALL had to work that parade and so did tons of NYPD...OT and all...that is a huge expenditure that a private org or sponsor would need to pay for.
And of course, the city would not (and apparently did not) exclude gays.
Well I'm glad the beer makers pulled out...and disappointed in general. I'm more curious about who is sponsoring the parade? I guess if the Catholic Church is involved in a big way, they have deep pockets.
I, like many others, thought that StPdP was just a bunch of people marching in honor and fun of St Patrick's day...are learning the reality of this parade.
I think as more people figure out what this "parade" is all about, it will lose favor. If parade organizers keep the same track, StPdP will be just another old ritual old folk do.
Who here goes to a Columbus Day Parade?
Here is the marchers at MLK's day in my area.
