Based on what this man says, I should agree with my 7 year old that I should let him eat candy 24/7/365. What a bunch of gobbligoop.

The story for those who are saved has a happy ending regardless of the current chaos across the world. For those of us anguishing over things ranging from beheadings to immoral cultural trends, keep your faith in God. In the end, it all gets corrected. In the meantime, live your life for others and everyday thank God for his grace for your own sins.

I wonder if the European peasantry interprets all this the way I would If I lived in Europe. Hey Europeans of other countries who aren’t broke and in debt like our country is… you all will work harder and pay more taxes so those of us over here who are broke and already heavily indebted to you can stay in our comfort zone. If you say one word against this you are just trying to humiliate us you haters.

HOLD ON folks! Grundy’s criminal identity theft is NOT her fault. It’s mine. You see I’m a white male living on the west side of this nation and I’m chalk full of racial indifference. Sorry about that. Not her fault. /rollseyes

Our justice system has created this reality by giving every benefit of the doubt to the ‘renter.’ I would love to see the same sort of lax attitude by government when it comes to being late with payments to them. Lose a court case and you owe money for court costs, yeah I’ll get around to paying that 3 to 4 months after it’s due. April 15th and you owe taxes to the IRS? Yeah I’ll get around to that 3 to 4 months after it’s due. As we all know, it doesn’t work like that. It’s ok for YOU to get screwed but as always, the government is do as I say not as I do.

A month doesn’t go by without some news story about 500,000 accounts hacked here and 4 million credit card numbers stolen there. You don’t really need a former CIA director to confirm that cyber terrorism is a real possibility.

Here’s two seconds of googling my ‘imaginary scenerios’
… and there’s so many more examples. The left is very used to ‘their way or the highway’ bubble so I understand the indigence you experience when challenged.

Turn the situation around. A straight person publicly shames a gay person for putting a pro-gay sign on their window. The LGBT community would be up in arms over such a politically incorrect act. Arguments claiming that the gay person has a right to put the sign in the window but has no right to the consequences would NOT be acceptable. But if we’re all supposed to be equal and fair, this needs to go both ways.
The couple should have kept this disagreement between them and the jeweler. They went public with this to purposefully hurt them for having ‘wrong think.’ They know full well this kind of exposure has a high possibility of resulting in a lawsuit.
I do concede that the business took a risk putting such sign in their window. But that there is a risk of putting such a sign in a window is actually part of the problem when we’re all supposedly tolerant to anyone’s particular view.

It’s hard to keep much anything in check that the left says we need to keep in check. There are so many ways that you can be a racist or hater in general. Things like having a different opinion. Or just admitting that 2+2=4. Over the top stuff like that routinely creates internet-rage-fests from the purveyors or tolerance and diversity.

If the lesbian couple kept this issue between them and the jeweler you might have a point. But this story went public and I’m pretty sure it didn’t go public at the hands of the jeweler. They wanted their money back AND to publicly shame this business. That’s the moment they turned into hypocrites. I can have my view but no, you cannot have your view, OR ELSE.

First, HBO has been known to be a bastion of liberal-think for a VERY long time now. Nothing new here if you’ve been around a while. I stopped watching HBO waaaaaaaayyyyy back when they decided to be a network rather than just a premium movie service. This was before the internet, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
“But this time, some of the show’s most loyal viewers awoke from their prolonged moral slumber to discover that, wow, violent sex as entertainment is actually pretty disturbing. Feminists and Vanity Fair writers and senators protested, swearing off the show and declaring the scene “unnecessary,” “cheap,” and “offensive.” ”
I always get a good giggle when the godless become indignant over some notion of ‘morality.’ The rape scene was cheap and offensive. But pro-choice that results in millions of dead babies, that’s just fine. Let’s hold up a wet finger to the wind to see what we can be indignant about today, but perhaps celebrate tomorrow, should the wind change direction.
EXACTLY. You've just described the daily existence of a moral relativist.

What a great story in that it shows that it’s not good enough to be a business person who does NOT discriminate. The lefty thinking requires that you THINK the way they do, OR ELSE. Hypocrites as usual. So much for tolerance and diversity the grand virtues of the left.
Why should this lesbian couple support a business that believes they shouldn't be wed?
'The lefty thinking requires that you THINK the way they do, OR ELSE. '
Know what that sounds like? Hrm.
'Think like us or you will burn in hell!'
But I'm sure it's wrong when "they" do it.

The author seems to say things I would agree with. But it also comes off as rather detached and pedantic. Some peoples’ livelihoods have been destroyed and/or lost over the LGBT community’s bullying tactics. My whole life this community has been asking to be treated equally. Then, at the first sign of a major cultural shift in their favor, they turn into a crazed mob destroying lives and livelihoods simply because they can get a court to agree with them. Disgusting and hypocritical.

Well, looks like this professor has it all figured out then. Maybe he can find a cure for cancer next.

Blah blah blah. The koran teaches that infidels must convert, die, or pay a tax for a time and then die. That’s it. All the trillions of words from crazed islamic extremists about this that and the other – it’s all just a distraction – a red herring.
Too long didn’t read? If you’re not muslim then you need to die. And even if you are muslim, you might still need to die for not being the correct flavor of muslim. islam, the religion of peace and love…

The lefty useful idiots can’t name an accomplishment because the matter has already been settled – it’s time for a U.S. President who has an ‘inny.’ That’s pretty much the extent of the thinking by those who will rush to pull the lever for hillary. In the meantime, these same people will be screaming at the rest of us to keep our gender bias in check.
I admire many of the critical political thinkers out there. But this coming election will see hillary as president solely because she is female. Skeptical about my claim? I politely refer you to the UNaccomplished barak obama who was put into office TWICE by our brilliant electorate. Because we needed a black president. Now the rest of you, keep your racism in check!
>> keep your racism in check
I've tried, but failed miserably

As well as Matt illustrates the horrendous act of aborting millions of children, there is a broader lesson that can be gleaned from this.
The unbelievable hypocrisy of the left is nothing new. And yes, there is hypocrisy on the right as well. But the left takes hypocrisy to stunningly high levels. But this isn’t so much a rant about the left’s hypocrisy as it is to point out how that hypocrisy provides a convenient pass to ignore all opposing ideas.
Pro-choice is all about the woman’s right to choose. But you won’t ever hear pro-choicers mention the child at stake. That side of the debate is totally ignored. That’s why people such as Cecile can utter unbelievable opposite-speak of such great contradiction even an ape scratches its head in wonderment.
I believe that the left is as hypocritical as it is because they have long since lost the ability to fathom ideas beyond their own liberal bubble. And on occasion when they find themselves indignant to the audacity of someone promoting views offensive to their sensibilities, most of the time their best arguments center around personally attacking their offender.
Liberals may not take a conservative such as myself seriously since according to them I’m just a bigot, racist, misogynist, and hater of poor people. But I find that taking liberals seriously is a waste of time because they are utterly tone deaf to opposing ideas. And I’m probably not alone in feeling this way.

This was one of my brainwaves that went errant while traveling cross country. It, among other of my brainwaves, have been responsible for all the looting and rioting in Baltimore and elsewhere since my brainwaves are chalk full of racial indifference.

Nothing wets a liberal progressive more than executing a new way to extract money from the peasantry. The cherry on top is the Berkeley peasantry that seems happy to give it. It’s a win-win in the liberal utopia of rainbows and bunnies.
