Also, regarding defamation claims (slander & libel): truthfulness of the statement at issue IS a defense, but it is an “affirmative defense.” That means that the defendant in a defamation case has the burden of proof that his statement was, in fact, truthful.

OK, lance — I just signed the pledge.

Re: At the time of publication, the American Family Association’s “Boycott Target” petition had garnered more than one million signatures.
Some who have not signed the petition are also boycotting — my family included.
Haven't been to a Target in years with my own money. And didn't want to go with anyone else money either...
Disturbed - The Sound Of Silence
Sorry...I can't boycott them...I have not bought anything from a Target in 20 years.
Target has the ability to make foolish choices. The decent people of the world have the ability to respond to those foolish, unwise decisions accordingly. Ain't it great?
I wonder when Target will open their arms and include accommodations for your average low life child molester? When Target? When can we expect "inclusivity" for all mankind?
Target can take their PROGRESSIVE policies and shove it! The decent Americans of the world have had ENOUGH of it. They are tired of businesses trying to force the crap sandwich of "inclusivity" down our throats. Wisdom teaches the most basic decision making skills. Target has proven to society that they have neither. It's good to see they are reaping the rewards of those unwise decisions.
It's about time the decent American citizens start to make TARGET eat their own "crap sandwich"!
Chuck, make sure you still sign the boycott pledge, it only takes about five seconds. Here’s the link:
Stock has a lot of downward potential. If the boycott really pans out, it will really show in July at the end of Q2 when the earnings reports come out. I see far less cars in the lot at the local Target.
I hope that there will be a noticeable drop in sales that cannot otherwise be explained except for the boycott.
Target Stock Drops After Store Announces Controversial ‘Inclusivity’ Policy
Actually, I think it’s more appropriate to say “Target Stock Plunges." If Christians would just realize how much power we have, this country could literally be turned around in a few months. When a few thousand homofascists threaten boycotts, companies roll over like frightened possums. When one atheist screams like a stuck pig about being offended by football players praying on school grounds, constitutionally illiterate superintendents try to silence those prayers. Think what would happen if even 1/10 of the 264,000,000 professing Christians would just get off their couches and show as much interest in restoring our freedoms as fascists show in destroying them. Do the math people (and not the common core kind where 66,000 > 26,400,000).

I suspect that the Pence endorsement for Cruz will be a positive for Cruz.
Interesting, though, how so very many “attacks” are effectively “endorsements” (e.g., the Pope slamming Trump before Super Tuesday).

Hmm . . . “wild-eyed conspiracy theories”
Oh, and what WAS the reason that the Obama administration gave for ending the practice of selling the military’s brass shell casings to reloaders?
Just wondering why they would forgo that revenue.
Also, what about the “reduce, reuse, recycle” mantra?
Doesn’t “reload” fit as a form of “reuse”?
How does Obama’s past recommendations fit in to these recent ones?
June 13, 2008: He [Obama] warned that the general election campaign could get ugly. “They’re going to try to scare people. They’re going to try to say that ‘that Obama is a scary guy,’ ” he said. A donor yelled out a deep accented “Don’t give in!”
“I won’t but that sounded pretty scary. You’re a tough guy,” Obama said.
“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”
Philly, home of the new black panther's voter intimidation strategy.
And it isn't that the products aren't already safe: they are!
To this administration, "safe" guns means unusable guns.
We just keep sliding down the slippery slope.
A corollary to the maxim that it's not paranoia if they really are out to get you, It's NOT a conspiracy if they are openly trying to limit a Constitutional Right.

Here is the Chuck Stein solution if SCOTUS prohibits requiring ID to vote:
ad hoc “Provisional ID” is provided at the polling place.
Poor Juan Valdez just could not go out and get ID and that burden is going to stop him from voting?
Nope: Juan can get an ID right then and there. He gets his picture taken, gives a thumb print and signs a statement regarding the penalties for voter fraud in the state.
The DA could have a nicely packaged voter fraud case in that case.

So, Simple, you are sore about Cruz stopping the Gang of Eight amnesty?

A good plaintiff’s attorney would tell Elliott Hirshman about his civil claim: false imprisonment is a tort. Each of those small-minded tortfeasors is jointly and severally liable for damages. Hmmm . . . what if Mr. Hirshman is so shook up by this that he can no longer serve as university president? Could be BIG bucks there. Also, liability for damages related to one’s intentional tort is NOT a liability that can be discharged in bankruptcy — it is a liability that must be satisfied OR stays on the financial record of the debtor. So . . . this could get really fun.

Nothing like using terrorist tactics to show that you are NOT terrorists!
Aztecs kept slaves and made ritual sacrifices. Pro-Hamass peeps know how to parallel history at times. PallyWood is here.
Terrorists using terrorism to prove they aren't terrorists? Who'dathunkit?
But I'm guessing none of those little terrorists-in-training was arrested for false imprisonment or any other charge.
These Trump rallies are getting stranger and stranger.
This is why you need to do a better job selecting students in the first place. That they are willing to go into debt for the rest of their life for a useless degree in a non-growth field...is just not enough.
Who said something like " by their fruits ye shall know them '... I heard it before...
Amen, these students are to ignorant to grasp what they doing. Maybe it is what is being taught in California schools and in the classrooms at California colleges and universities that is making these Demoncrat students so ignorant and fascists.
The inmates are running the asylum. Time to start expelling the troublemakers.
It is simple, you expel them! no refund because they broke campus rules.
If there is not evidence to support the flier, then it is Slander/Libel. So since no one is screaming about such a thing, there must be evidence of such. Truth is always a defense against such a claimed tort. So.. they just don't want the truth being exposed and are willing to terrorize to do it.
Yes, it's a beautiful irony, and funny that they don't see the irony. Just like they talk about freedom of speech while shouting down anyone with a different opinion, talk about protecting life (criminals attacking police) at all costs while supporting abortion and infanticide, talk about freedom of religion while attacking Christianity, talk about freedom of conscience while forcing others to celebrate gay "weddings", talk about freedom from fear while threatening others.
Right on these and any other law breakers should be prosecuted for their actions doesn't matter who or what their aligned with
Another reason why NOT to live in CaliPornia
some of them are terrorists, some will become terrorists but ALL Of them are terrorist supporters and funders and apologists for islam. 100% of them are jewhater lefties & mooslims who know USA can be moved by MOB riots and dissemination of lies. These are not individuals acting alone, often supported by foreign interests sent to UNDERMINE or society

Hey, Blaze editors,
Re: “er-misogynist” candidate
It is “ur” not “er”. It is a German prefix that denotes “original” or “at the beginning”
Example: the word “zeit” is German for “time” and “urzeit” is German for “ancient”
Now Now Chuck, Haven't you heard? you can't even be a grammer natsi
Your a Racist!, Err, I mean 'You're a Racist!'
Lol, JK, ....I thought about as much, about this story, I do like knowing
what flavor of the week MSNBC is serving up as government propaganda
now and then, it's all such crap anymore, as all network news pretty much is.

actually, BRO, the reason is that Americans are humans like everyone else on the planet and, to quote Calvin Coolidge (from memory, so I might not have it precisely): “Communism will fail because it is against human nature.”
 April 28, 2016 at 5:04pm
Yeah, “socialism never ends well” — but that is the ONE topic where Obama et al believe in “American Execptionalism”
Just because it has failed everywhere else, why can’t it succeed here?
Because the concept of being taxed for something to help our fellow citizens that they haven't 'earned' is some commie garbage

Nations that required capitalism to protect them for the communists. Fulda Gap and all.
Hey Letmego. I lived in Germany for five years have you? I have also been to Sweden, Austria, Poland, Russia, France, Czech Republic, Norway and Denmark. And they are all in economic decline. And this concept of free college and free healthcare, let me break your little world with celerity. Gas was about 4-5 euros for a liter which is roughly a third of a gallon and transmuted to US dollars about 8 to 10 dollars. So that's about 24-30 bucks for a gallon of gas. I will mot get into the tax amount on everyday item that no doubt you and every other liberal zombie would moan and complain about it after getting your way and finally realizing that have to pay for things to be free. In America it has always been the blood of our brothers and sisters, mother and fathers, everywhere else the consideration was nothing but money. So think on that until you have a revelation because this world is going to swallow you unprepared entitled infants to your knees.

Thanks, Sean, a solid-Left Supreme Court a year from now in exchange for you getting a ratings boost in early 2016.
What’s NOT to love about that trade-off?

Newsflash: primaries are different from the general election. The dems that vote in the PRIMARIES for Trump are doing that to give Clinton an easy win in November. Not all, of course, but the vast majority.
Sorry, but reality has to be addressed (though your enunciated delusions are quite entertaining, I’ll admit!).

Re: Chapter 11 filings are always a good move.
In Trump’s 2009 bankruptcy case, unsecured creditors — low-level investors, contractors, small-time vendors — got less than a penny on the dollar for their claims against Trump Entertainment Resorts. Tell THOSE people how “good” it was that they got less than a penny on the dollar for money that Trump owed them.
Also, SOME people who declare bankruptcy (either personally or through the use of the corporate veil) have been know to pay those whom they stiffed through bankruptcy. Not Trump, of course. That “honor” thing is so overrated, right? That brings to mind Draft Dodger Donald, but no need to go into that . . .

Re: “democrats can an will vote in large numbers for Trump.”
