    I’ll bet there’s not a single non-fiction book published that doesn’t contain these kinds of errors.

    The GOP is going to have to “play games” to get some things done. This is the one thing I fault the tea party for, it sometimes doesn’t understand how things work. If we don’t get some Democrats on board, we will not be able to do much. This necessitates “playing the game”. I know the game is stupid, but until the tea party carries more weight, it must work within the system. With ACA, the excessive regulation, the stupid diplomacy and the multitude of scandals, we need to work with the Democrats to resolve these issues. In the mean time, we need to defeat the moderates in the primaries. That is where the tea party needs to fight.

    Because the democrats moving there haven’t ruined it yet. Oregon was republican until 1984.

  • [4] January 6, 2015 at 4:11pm

    The problem is, a lot of these people moving are democrats. They move out of the states they helped ruin and then help ruin the state they are moving to. Its a vicious cycle.

    “the false and dangerous idea that gay people can and should choose to be straight in order to be part of their faith communities” What is “false” and “dangerous” about someone choosing to live a straight lifestyle when they have a gay attraction? Do we realize what this person is saying? He wants to FORCE people to live the gay lifestyle if they exhibit any gay attraction. This is not a gay issue, its a freedom issue.

    “participation in the parade as public servants carrying out a legitimate work assignment” WRONG! If the issue was putting out a fire in a gay person’s house (which no Christian would have objected to), then yes this applies, BUT NOT DRIVING IN A PARADE! Driving in a parade is not a legitimate work assignment. These judges are just trying to force their religious views on the firefighters. They are violating the constitution by establishing a religion (humanism).

    McCain has supported the Democrats one too many times for my comfort. His support for the ANWR drilling ban was the worst thing he did. I hope he loses this battle and ends up retired.

    “…I’ve never really faced inequality.” She is revealing the problem feminists and civil rights activists are having these days, a lack of inequality to protest about. So, if there is no inequality, then they just have to make something up! Which is the problem, because when they come forward with some of the issues they are protesting about, we just scratch our heads and wonder how they could be upset. Most of these issues are totally contrived with mock “outrage”. The worst thing that could ever happen to a feminist or a civil rights advocate is to get equality, because then they lose their power!

    Politicians should pay a political price for pandering to people who obviously jumped to conclusions before all the facts are out. None of the recent examples show that the cops did anything wrong other than being too rough with the guy in Stanton Island. The mayor should be an adult, and be siding with the cops, because these incidents do not justify any action against the police. I hope NYC recalls DiBlasio for his foolish pandering.

  • December 29, 2014 at 11:28am

    Stop buying the spin. There is no evidence that any cop has done something wrong recently, In fact, they have shown remarkable restraint. The problem is, that people like you don’t know the facts of the Ferguson and Stanton Island incidents, yet show no restraint on commenting on them. In both cases, the cops were legitimately arresting someone who was engaged in criminal activity and were killed because of their own actions, instead of the cops actions. It is incredibly stupid for people to be still raising their hands in support of Michael Brown, even though the there is more evidence that he never raised his hands. If people think there is a problem with cops, they need to pick better examples than these. The real issue is people STUPIDLY jumping to conclusions without knowing all the facts. Its sad that adults today are acting like stupid teenagers, and don’t seem to ever grow up.

    You are employing a logical falicy, called the “straw man”, where you are accusing me of disrespecting ALL truckers because of me calling this PARTICULAR trucker a lane hog. Not fair! This trucker along with many “4 wheelers” have gotten into a bad habit of of being in the left lane when they don’t need to be. This accident would not have happened if the trucker had just let those 2 cars pass before pulling into the left lane to exit. Even with the weak brakes these guys have, he still had plenty of time to let those guys pass before he caught up to the other truck. The two car drivers were obviously frustrated with the lane hogging trucker. Not letting people pass causes huge clumps of vehicles where they are all driving close to one another, vastly increasing the likelihood of an accident. A professional driver should know better.

    I don’t think you correctly judged this situation, and should not be calling anyone stupid. The guy is right, the trucker was hogging the lane, AND the car he hit was foolishly trying to pass without enough room. Had the trucker been in the right lane letting people pass, this would not have happened.

  • December 26, 2014 at 10:55am

    Sorry, but I hate the statement “You can’t fix stupid”. This is just insulting and is completely incorrect. The problem here is the trucker being selfish, not letting others pass, and the car he hit foolishly trying to pass when there wasn’t enough room. I hope the car driver will learn her lesson and not try to squeeze in front of a truck again. This isn’t a stupidity issue, its a selfishness and no common sense issue.

    Agree. The trucker was in the left lane when he didn’t need to be. The exit was 1.5 miles away and he was no where near the other truck yet. This lane hogging is a constant source of irritation to me. I have a long commute, made longer by selfish people dilly-dallying in the left lane.

  • December 26, 2014 at 10:30am

    Watched the video, and it is clear to me that the Trucker was hogging the left lane. This is a huge problem on roads today, because this hogging causes traffic jams. There was no need for him to be in the left lane that far away from the exit, even at 1.5 miles away. The car he hit was pushing the envelope though by trying to pass on the right without enough room. The red car slowed down, making the situation worse. I drive about 35K miles a year in heavy traffic, and this lane hogging is a major problem. It is the stimulus for a lot of other bad driving, like squeezing between cars, driving too fast (to exploit a hole) and rapidly switching lanes. I know trucks need a lot of room to stop, but they should know better than to hog the left lane.

    Common Core could eventually present a problem for home schoolers, because curriculum has to “comply” to their standards. Right now, it isn’t a requirement, but I think eventually it will. We home schoolers need to stand against common core too.

  • [1] August 27, 2014 at 1:00pm

    I don’t think the Suit is going to work because he already took the money. I like Bobby, but he is just making a statement. Until Common Core is outlawed, he has to support it.

  • [1] August 27, 2014 at 12:45pm

    Just like Speaker Bohener’s suit, this one probably won’t work. He took the money, so its his own fault.

  • [2] August 27, 2014 at 12:35pm

    The worst part of common core is that when it doesn’t work, they will just change the tests so that it will look like it works. In the end, just more government control.

    I am so tired of hearing people who think they know what the bible says running their mouths when it is obvious to me that they never studied the bible. Jesus is not a Marxist, or a Communist. He wants people in the Church to “remember the poor”, and never advocated the government to take care of the poor. He is a Monarchist, with Him as the Monarch. People think He is a Communist because of the early believers pooling their resources described in the book of Acts. They did this because of persecution, not because they were advocating communism. In this case, the government was impoverishing them, not helping them.
