Wow, how ignorant a statement is that? As a Mormon I pity your ignorance. I hope you find within yourself to allow Christ truly into your heart.

Wow . . . what a poor, un-Christian-like response to this article. The Christ you must believe in must be a vindictive, angry, forceful Christ that attacks other religions even if they they do good in the world. I choose your so-called “other Jesus” espoused by Mormons who they believe is a kind and loving Savior and Redeemer. Shameful for you to claim to be a Christian and act oppositely.

As a 50 year old man who was an Eagle Scout at 14 and has been a Scout leader for most of my life, I plead that the Boy Scouts of America holds to its convictons. I have never seen the BSA condone the bullying of anyone gay or lesbian, but that doesn’t mean the BSA needs to suspend the scout belief system and bow to their pressure. Who is being the bully now? Isn’t bullying exactly trying to force someone to do something they don’t want to do? In America, the gays and lesbians have every right to start up their own scouting organization, but they don’t have any right to change the BSA. Period.
As a Pack Master and Den Leader, I will tell you that the pressure is on.
Does anyone truly believe that when the Scouts change their stance, that they're going to thrive?
It will mean the end of the Scouts. At this moment, roughly 70% of all Scout charters are through churches. Care to take a shot at how many churches are going to drop the Scouts? Having talked to several churches in the area, its going to hurt the Scouts.
You said it Eaglescout!

KEATON: What good was Obama’s degrees as a constitutional professor? The Supreme Court found his recess appointments onconstitutional with almost every thing he has done up for judicial scrutiny. What good was his short stint as a Senator? All we know is that he railed against the very things he is doing now and voted present most of the time and did not have the guts to vote “yea” or “nea”. What good has he been as president? Massive debt, dependence on government, massive regulatory burden, massive taxes on all just not the rich, destroying capitalism, introducing socialism and extreme partisanship up the wazzoo! While not high crimes and misdemeanors, definitely should include “incompetence” as an impeachable offense.
February 26, 2013 at 8:37am
Talk has been about the low information voters who put Obama back into office. Here is an example of a low information elected official that accepts the talking points as truth even when they make no sense at all. It is so sad to see such ignorance on display in Washington!
February 22, 2013 at 9:21am
Jeesh, you can find racism anywhere if you are looking be offended. Just quit looking to be offended!!

Those gun companies that are being squeezed by their own states need to move their operations to states that appreciate the fact that guns don’t kill people, people kill people. No amount of gun control laws will stop that fact and will kill with whatever is handy.

Confused and mentally unstable seems now to be the norm. Where is this world going to?
January 30, 2013 at 4:34pm
I am a polar opposite to everything Obama says or stands for, but even I respect the office of the president enough to find this joke beyond bad taste and poor judgement. I bet the jokester gets a visit from the Secret Service!
January 23, 2013 at 4:19pm
The Clintons invented the Washington two-step, but Obama refined and patented it.
Senator Rand hit hard and she deflected it using Bill’s own teflon coating.

You invite a rapper to perform and expect them not to say something controversial? I thought that was the point of rap . . . push the envelope . . . describe the current status of things . . . tell the urban story!
Maybe rappers are starting to see through the Obama experience since he sure has not helped the black community over the past 4 years in office.
January 11, 2013 at 8:56am
One good turn . . . . wait a minute!

Okay, if Obama (executive branch) can unilaterally destroy the constitutional right to own guns by taking this right awa, then the Supreme Court (judicial branch) can unilaterally strike it down, and Congress (legislative branch) should pass bills to correct it. Unfortunately, Congress is busy being ineffective.
If Obama acts, then the Supreme Court must find it unconstitutional since this is a legislative matter, not one left to be decided by a self-appointed king.

“Wow, look at the dead, headless fish that is floating in the ocean. . . let’s eat it!!”
Being an avid fisherman who likes to eat the catch . . . this does not sound appetizing or smart!
The first thing I would have thought of was donate it to science, "road-kill" is not my idea of good eating.
"Road Kill"? Send it to Honey Boo-Boo's family.

Why do we continue to allow any racist air time? I don’t care if you are black, white, yellow, pink or burgundy, color should be cast out from being used as a tool to divide us. MLK’s dream continues to be outside of some people’s reach or intelligence.
Thank heavens ESPN made the right call. We should never condone racism in any form especially when it is on the public airwaves!
What I have seen of Griffin, is that he is a leader of men, a strong character, and brave. It is a sorry society where the focus is on he does not fit a Left-wing subservient definition of what the Left thinks a Black man should be. The focus should be on his great strengths, and character. Griffin has all of the strong qualities that Parker is lacking. Hopefully, this will be an example to reporters everywhere to open their eyes, and look at what is good, and right rather than try to demean what they are lacking in their own charachter.
ESPN didn't make the right call. The right call would have been to call out Parker open and very publicly on his racist comments...terminating his contract with a stern warning that ESPN will not tolerate racism from any of it's employees.
THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE RIGHT CALL.
Not a behind the scene very quite severing of ties.
What about the sexism? There is no mention of the cornball sister.
oh i guess its ok as long as they agree with you... Racists can be racists. Are you trying to brain wash them ? Now we must like certain people because you say so. We have to accept everything and anything including as sorts of perversions. Besides what you might consider racism some might consider the truth. It is a biological fact that blacks have a lower iq. Does that make me a racist ?
This is bigotry not racism.
Your trolling skills are lacking. You need more practice.
Finally a network that does the right thing and refuses to put up with this behavior. If only they would all follow suit, maybe some of this racism and sexism would, if not stop, at least wouldn't be an every damn day occurrence. I for one, am sick of it!
I will work on my trolling skills. I hope to offend as many losers and idiots as I can. Perhaps you just don't like what I have to say. Perhaps you need me to be a little more sensitive... Do you want Vaseline? Why don't you tell me sweetheart.
You see ! I really do care.
Yes party with Barry. Ill spit and you can go first.
whether you are a liberal trying to soil these pages, or consider yourself a Conservative, your comments are an illustration or you own diminished IQ, and not acceptable in a civilized society. Try civility, and Integrity, it really will enhance your existence, and the lives of those around you.
No i am not a leftist plant.. I am an extreme right winger period. You probably call yourself a conservative but I have a suspicion that you are a little softy that puts up with everything. Including being under the skirt of your wife or girlfreind and that my friend is what has this country in trouble. As for my iq... I have owned and sold 7 businesses and I am a futures trader.. I will gladly provide you with today's statement. I guaranteed you that i have made 20 to 50 to maybe 100 times what you have made today. I have taken into account you being a plastic surgeon or attorney. Small wager ? Put your money where your mouth is... Respond here if you want to take me up on that and we can arrange to contact each other.. Feathers get easily ruffled babe. Get some intestinal fortitude John Wayne style. I bet your favorite actor George Clooney.
Oh yes since i feel like ranting. One more thing or two.. I use to have respect for Americans but you guys have become a bunch of gutless whiners. The government has enslaved you with high taxes regulations and laws and you all happily get up every morning and go to work to sustain all these leaches that deserve to die.. You take from the mouth of your own children to support the low lives.. I did not want to leave my country but I am here and this is the last stand. I have four sons all born here and I am sorry to say they have a bunch sorry ass spineless countrymen. You are destroying your country. You cater to everyone including a bunch of worn infested immigrants that cant even speak proper Spanish themselves telling you to learn their language. Seriously you have lost it.
I would have prefered it if ESPN had made an unequivacal statement against racism and FIRED him versus a wishy washy "let his contract lapse".

No story here . . . she is pretty . . . he is a QB . . . .commentators comment . . . game over!

They here is that the Congress can cut expenses big time and still pay the interest on the national debt. That is all that is required by this provision in the Constitution . . .pay the interest on the national debt. That is the only default we should worry about since there is oodles of federal tax income coming in to do that.
Republicans should hold true to the Constitution and not give in to the lies from the left. No more taxes . . . period . . . you don’t give an alcoholic more booze . . . and begin cutting the budget deficit by fiscal conservativism. This is the only way to survive!

I honor our vets and all they have done for our country, but should our own government be spending $247,000 in tax dollars so that only those who watch a parade will see it? Our tax dollars need to be protected just as much as our borders.
As a veteran I would be more honored if we used that money to feed some hungry kids somewhere in the world.
read post below for answer
Eugene! Spending the $247,000 to honor our war vets wouldn't be so bad, if it weren't for the fact that we had to borrow $114,000 to pull it off!

Okay, this article only gave you a bent view of the TAG program. Notice that it was a guest opinion that originally posted on cnbc.com (and you trust info coming from CNBC?).
As a banker of almost 30 years, I can tell you TAG was NOT a subsidy for big banks or any banks. They had to pay to participate and they received zero dollars in return. The only pay out comes if a bank fails and a depositor (consumer or business) is caught with more than the FDIC allowed amount and could lose funds. The customer would then get their entire deposit account back if it was in a non-interest bearing account.
The benefit to small banks was that their larger clients did not bail on them and go to the bigger banks that were “too big to fail”. By not renewing this, we will see more deposit dollars migrate to these big banks and hurt the small community banks. Now does it make sense why credit unions would want TAG stopped? Credit Unions primarily compete against the small banks so this gives them an edge.
Isn’t it funny that credit unions don’t pay federal or state income taxes (subsidized by the American taxpayer), but want to compete against fully taxed banking institutions who pay millions in taxes? This inequity must be addressed and fixed. The question is could credit unions compete with banks if they weren’t subsidized and paid the same tax? In the words of the President, how about credit unions paying their “fair share”?
I was thinking the same thing. Another step towards Corporatism. As it is Dodd-Franks is consolidating the small banks at an alarming rate that are the mas and pops that make loans big banks won't make to keep their neighbors solvent.
When the Dems talk about somebody "paying their fair share."It means:payMORE.

Wait a minute, was this beat down of a Dem Sen on CNBC? Maria will lose her job since she didn’t tow the network leftist, elitist bias!
