Absolutely TRUE, Monk and… very, very good for Carly Fiorina for actually saying it! She’s right – we don’t need to change anything because we are not a series of special interest groups no do we buy into the prescribed mantra that we should be.
People ascend or descend on INDIVIDUAL effort – period!
Not race, color, creed, or gender and sexual orientation, for that matter, should not even be included!
Not to mention the expense. In the overall scheme of things it's not much but it's an example of wasting tax dollars.

Okay – I’ll play…
I think when a person or child goes wayward politically like this – say boycotting law enforcement or another social no no then we require disclosure of school and parents employ so that we can then boycott HIS sources of indoctrination… this should effectively diffuse typical low information voter, socialist progressive stupidity.
Funny you should use the word "indoctrination" when you're so obviously indoctrinated. Funnier that you name yourself "americanfirst" when you obviously are a statist who puts the corrupt state first. So far this year ( http://killedbypolice.net/ ) cops have killed at least 846 people (the list may not be complete). Civil asset forfeiture is a multi-billion dollar industry, and the vast majority of victims are never charged with a crime, nor do they get their money back. Every cop in the country wakes up knowing that the majority of his job that day will be to ticket and/or arrest people who are just minding their own business and not bothering anybody. If a person is charged with a crime and pleads 'not guilty' prosecutors routinely pile on more charges. Police commit perjury so much that they have a name for it: testilying. Judges and prosecutors know this and routinely ignore perjury by cops. Anybody who is not 100% against all of the above is not an American.
BTW, "socialist progressive"s gave us Social Security, Medicare, drug laws, and military interventionism. Are you against all of these things?

But workers there refused to serve them, they said, with one employee telling them, “We don’t serve police.”
Sounds plural to me!!

Is Donald Trump a Conservative…. no.
Is he serving the conservative cause? He is right now, and comparitively well.
Is Mitch McConnel a Republican Leader. Yes.
Is he serving the Conservative cause… not at all, nor has he for quite some time.
Ted Cruz gets that, as well as any other REAL conservative.
It’s not about the brand of politics today – it’s about what YOU DO and wether or not you have sold out your representation.
Right now, today – Trump is more conservative than McConnell ever has been!!
He cannot be accused of selling out. He may disagree on some policy points but… he doesn’t claim to be one thing and do another. THAT, my friends, is the state of the current Republican Leadership (and the perpetual Democratic party).
Nah, lame. The real white elephant question in the room is why these folks get arrested for getting money from politicians, but the folks who stole trillions from the American public and crashed the economy, don't get arrested. Guess the difference is Wall Street and the banks GIVE money to politicians.

The US says ”Biden should just shut up and crawl back under his rock!”
 May 27, 2015 at 3:12pm
well in that case… shut it down. Not good enough for our men and women in uniform – not good enough for the parasites that enjoy the blanket of freedom THEY provide.
Shut it down.

Okay, okay…. so…. how many poles does it take to start a fire with just your bike? … one really stupid one.
How many poles does it take to put the fire out?… the rest of them!!

Make you wonder WHO they got the information from….. MY MONEY SAYS THE WHITE HOUSE!

CLEARLY… this makes a case for imposing massive fines or counter suits for those CLEARLY abusing the system.
I say…if she’s willing to lie to get paid OUT of the public treasury that people pay taxes towards they should pay restitution by percentages to what they asked IF they are clearly abusing the system and have it go back to the treasury or the citizens. That’s me!
That should massively cut down on lawsuit abuses by those looking to wrongfully help themselves.

CLEARLY another moronic communist from CNN. Pansy-ass…

IF Hate Speech is NOT protected then… I find MSNBC, CNN, and ALL other liberal mainstream media networks, along with the Democratic Party UNCONSTITUTIONAL since they spew hate speech continuously against Christians, Pro-lifers, Pro-traditional family citizens, Pro-Constitution.
Jon Stewart, Bill Mahr, Al Sharpton, Chris Matthews, Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and the list goes on ….
You cannot have it both ways, socialists. You have ZERO credibility with real Americans!!
WITHOUT TRUTHFUL RESPONSIBLE MEDIA SUPPORT, AMERICANS HANDS ARE TIED.
We MUST totally stop the trilateral commission, one of the most progressive groups in our nation. Now is our only chance to put the brakes on the 0bummer regimes insane destruction of our lives and our nation.
WE the PEOPLE -- MUST-- strike back at liberalism with ANY LEGAL means possible.
DONT wait for "someone else" to do it or will never happen.
YOUR FUTURE now depends on your involvement All politics is local. The people who plot against you are scared of you.
The ONLY way to control comrade 0buma is to control the propagnda medias agenda.
Without the lying, butt covering, marxist media 0bumma is NOTHING. The corrupt regime cannot withstand a frontal assault.
We the people MUST change the status quo. NO longer can WE tolerate the lies and propaganda.
Do YOUR part! SPEAK OUT! BEFORE that becomes ILLEGAL under 0buma doctrine. Remember, ALL politics IS LOCAL, each of us can matter. Dont forget to do a frontal assault on the SCOTUS, make them see.
comrade 0buma is the parrot head of the trilateral led totalitarian regime that is enslaving the nation.
The ONLY way America will gain back its independence is when we do a slash and burn campaign against the communist progressive news media and destroy it once and for all time.
When the thugs and ghouls in the whitehouse and the DOJ abolish the 2nd amendment , YOU will lose YOUR freedoms, your right to self defense and will become a slave to comrade 0buma
The fundamental problem with entrusting leadership with disbursal of treasury… they don’t make the connection that someone else gave up life (time) for compensation that pays those taxes.
So they don’t grasp the concept that while THEY spend we have to earn to supply what THEY indiscriminately spend.
We need to write legislature against this.

a) she is talking to the only audience that will listen – conservatives. So, as much as she’s appreciate she’s for all intents and purposes preaching to the choir and
b) IF what she says is true (and it is) then… it cannot only be applicable to “bad behavior but has to be applicable everywhere in society. Say goodbye to food stamps and welfare. Say goodbye to equal opportunity. Say goodbye to affirmative action. Say goodbye to lowering educational standards and deliberate dumbing down of America to ensure “no kid is left behind”. Say goodbye to racial or ethnic quotas and going back to best man gets the job and the most qualified student actually gets accepted and… all the ideological social justice BS spewed to indoctrinate the vulnerables?? … yeuh that goes away too!! Until then we’re still racist… to non-black people, of course!

Bottom line – irrespective of what secularists say…
Our Founders wanted a gov’t and society where people could be free to exercise their belief in the (Christian God) and they believed that God should, like then, permeate all aspects of our life.
The did not want to build a theology to get there but they where in no way building a secular government.
They expected God to be in all the details of their lives including and especially in representation – they where faithful men.
Note also that all our educational institutions of the time where ALL founded as theological institutions.
Bottom line – OUR government, the government of the US of A is NOT a secular government by any stretch,, in fact, it’s the compete opposite.
Redefinition of history notwithstanding!
You've bought into a narrative about the founding fathers that is incorrect and widely debunked. Yes, they did want to protect religious liberty; but wanted to construct a secular government that would not promote a specific ideology. Several founding fathers were Freemasons (and, as such, were Deists but strongly opposed the promotion of a faith-based ideology in their "grand experiment" that was America).
In 1789, George Washington said that "every man ought to be protected in worshipping the Deity according to the dictates of his own conscience". Deism? Yes...promotion of a Christian ideology, specifically? No.
John Adams (our 2nd President) said “I almost shudder at the thought of alluding to the most fatal example of the abuses of grief which the history of mankind has preserved — the Cross. Consider what calamities that engine of grief has produced!”
And now James Madison: “What influence, in fact, have ecclesiastical establishments had on society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the civil authority; on many instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny; in no instance have they been the guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who wish to subvert the public liberty may have found an established clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate it, needs them not.”
Want me to go on? Happy to, AmericanFirst.
The United States has a secular government, just like our Founders intended.
False Claim: Our Founders wanted a gov’t and society where people could be free to exercise their belief in the (Christian God).
Where is you evidence for this claim? Freedom of religion doesn't only apply to YOUR religion.
