    jpBITCHva saidI read this earlier. Bitch.

    Who knew Troy even had a government? Next thing we'll be hearing about the "mayor" of Clawson. And Pleasant Ridge. And Huntington Woods. We all know these aren't actual places anyway.



    Huntington Woods actually passed a an anti-discrimination ordinance a few years ago that was upheld by voters when anti-gay groups brought to a vote to try and have it overturned.

    I see that there is an effort on Facebook to boycott Troy until she resigns. How will A+F, Club Monaco, Crate & Barrel, Armani Exchange, or Pottery Barn survive without their gays? I guess they will always have Michaels.

    I think the technical term for the Mayor of Troy is the acronym "BC". The two word phrase for which it stands rhymes with "witch runt".

    She's a supporter of the Tea Party movement. This is what the Tea Party stands for: hate.

    Here is the real estate office where she is employed. Please contact them to know they have someone at their staff that does not support everyone in their community she has to deal with on a daily basis.

    she can go fuck herself...........what comes around also goes around,she'll probably end up in some scandal or another and be humiliated...[money missing from city funds..or something of that nature]...the thing with hate is,that usually people doing the hate are doing things that ends up getting them hated............

    Ok so I'm confused...I've seen and heard many gay guys refer to themself as queer. Is that not acceptable (anymore)?


    EDIT
    ...ok I just read the word within context.

    yeah...that's a problem.

    As a resident of that idiot mayor's city, I am thoroughly embarrassed to be living here. What a cunt. She makes me so sick.


    The First Amendment does not protect against a hate speech. What she said was a hate speech. I hope she gets recalled.

    The mayor says she will not apologize.

    Troy — The city's newly elected mayor on Friday said she won't apologize for a Facebook status update she wrote five months ago referring to gay people as "queers," saying she was speaking for herself when she wrote it and she has a First Amendment right to use the language she wants.

    Troy mayor speaks with protesters outside city hall.

    Janice Daniels addressed about 15 protesters in front of City Hall on Monday regarding the controversy surrounding a Facebook post, insisting that she said "one word" that people found offensive.

    The protesters included a group of students from the Troy High School Gay-Straight Alliance, and Daniels spoke specifically with Zach Gilford, the senior who organized Monday's protest in conjunction with the Troy High GSA.

    "I'm not a bully," Daniels said to the crowd. "I'm a nice person."

    In answer to questions about her future as mayor, Daniels said: "I'm not going to resign – of course not. I love my new role as mayor."

    Daniels also said Century 21, her employer, has asked Daniels to put her "license in escrow"– meaning she has "suffered consequences, too."

    Not much of an apology on her part, but the one thing I kind of find reassuring about this story is to learn this suburban Michigan high school actually has a Gay-Straight Alliance.

    Well, nice people do not have to tell everyone they are nice! Nice people don't make derogatory comments about other people!

    Troy's new mayor, Janice Daniels -- a longtime activist in Michigan's tea party movement -- went on the defensive Friday, less than three weeks after being sworn into office, when Internet users found what many called a gay slur on her Facebook page.

    Opinions are great, but when you reach a level where you make the rules or enforce the rules, you need to watch your mouth. 1st amendment is all good but it should be super-ceded by a common sense clause.
    Yes you do have the right to say what you want, but someone has the right to take offense. Why can't these officials be more...grown up?

    Tonight was a protest against her at city hall! I went to the city council meeting and watched her get laid into by the public.

    It was fantastic!
