Some ultra-Orthodox Jews oppose displaying photos featuring women, believing it to be immodest? Really?
While this might be a no harm/no foul situation (even tho seeing this particular woman can be a foul situation), “some orthodox Jews” might wanna pull out and read the ENTIRE Bible,…not just the first half or pieces and parts of it. I can imagine them NOT finding the part to truly justify such non-biblical nonsense.
P.S. I also feel that I must add that, when it comes to the salvation of your soul and thus making it to Heaven, to consider oneself “orthodox” or some other similar thing, won’t get you there any quicker.
It's a true mystery as to why Orthodox Jews don't read the full Christian Bible...
"Some ultra-Orthodox Jews oppose displaying photos featuring women, believing it to be immodest? Really?"
In certain contexts, yes really.
And guess what they don't have nearly as many cases of cheating or ruined marriages as others (including many who go to church and call themselves Christians).
While this might be a no harm/no foul situation (even tho seeing this particular woman can be a foul situation), “some orthodox Jews” might wanna pull out and read the ENTIRE Bible"
They do read the ENTIRE Bible, both the Written Torah AND the Oral Torah that G-d gave to Moses along with the written part.
",…not just the first half or pieces and parts of it. I can imagine them NOT finding the part to truly justify such non-biblical nonsense."
The non biblical nonsense is yours.
"P.S. I also feel that I must add that, when it comes to the salvation of your soul and thus making it to Heaven, to consider oneself “orthodox” or some other similar thing, won’t get you there any quicker."
Neither will sinning and thinking it's ok because you are 'saved'.

(Raul Castro)…..the U.S. is now “well-positioned” to have a “strong relationship” with Cuba and help “democratize” it…..
Hey, wait a minute! I thought the left hated what Bush was doing with these so-called “democracy projects.”
From what I’m hearing, this guy is not really a friend of the USA and eyes and ears must be kept on him.

Any destroying that takes place in a society generally starts with focusing on the younger people within it. Hitler did it.
Then when you think about it, is there any real wonder why obama spends more time giving speeches to college students than anyone else?

Charge the guy with 1st degree stupidity, give him 30 lashes and send him to a firearms training course!!
I’m all for OC or CC but one must be capable of safely handling the firearm, naturally, as if it’s second nature. I also have no issue with having to prove it before a permit is given. The only problem with that is, to require proof of proficiency, IMO, can be considered a form of gun control and that is also a HUGE problem. This is why I won’t support such a thing being mandated even though it has merit.

You’re right but it’s forced.
It’s like state-run TV….you’ll watch what we want you to watch and you’ll like it….now sit down.

Well I’ll just be damned. Somebody in D.C. FINALLY had the guts to speak the truth about the 1st amendment!
Rand, you keep this up and me and you just might end up being good friends…even if you don’t know it.
 March 31, 2015 at 8:42am
Yeah, I agree…..pundit is enough.

Oh good grief people! Get a life! If you see 50 Shades of Grey in this shirt, maybe it’s YOU who has YOUR mind on 50 Shades too much.
BTW, if someone wanted it to be what they say it is, they’d make the tie actually mirror the one on the book. This one hangs straighter down but slightly to the left rather than the right (looking at it). And yes, that observation is just as irrelevant as this complaint.

Am I really supposed to give a flying rat’s rear end whether these people took selfies of themselves?
Except for the explosion, it musta been a slow news day for the New York COMPost.
Sure they are. Didn’t say they weren’t. I simply stated where I believe the opposition to jealousy and homosexuality comes from (conservative and/or Christian morals and principles) and that conservatives are generally more likely to adhere to these morals and principles than those on “the left” who hold secular or more secular views.

You, O’Malley, if you should run, can take down Jeb and Hillary while we take YOU down….and then work like heck to get us a conservative elected….as in Cruz or Paul….the former being the preferred.

There is NO doubt that this song is about jealousy and not homosexuality. Still don’t give crap about it since being jealous of someone or what they have is just as bad.
And for all you morons who think not liking this song, whether it because of jealousy or homosexuality or whatever, is what gives conservatives a bad name need to understand that there are principles and morals involved in the decision to not like it. We simply are more likely to stick by these principles and morals than the average secularist/leftist/Democrat….IF these people have any to begin with.
As for me, I gave up most of country music years ago. I got sick of hearing about someone cheating on their partner and then the other whining and crying in their beer about it.
The flag represents this constitutional republic (it’s actually NOT a constitutional republic any longer) and it IS in severe distress! Therefore, while I probably wouldn’t, I see no issue with someone turning their flag upside down.
On top of this guy unnecessarily stressing over this, even though he clearly thought he meant well, he takes it upon himself to destroy the man’s flag pole rope? Now man just needs to go replace the rope and offer his own apology to the store owner.

Unlike in obama’s case, IF what we’ve been told is true about obama, Cruz never gave up his American citizenship and DID give up his Canadian citizenship so you’re grasping for straws and wasting your time.
Here is Article II, Section I, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;
Please tell us where it clearly defines “natural born citizen” ANYWHERE within these words.
Yes, yes, I know what John Locke wrote and that the Founders relied upon his words to create the Constitution and this nation and all that but the U.S. Constitution DOES NOT SPECIFICALLY SAY what John Locke said here.
Since Cruz clearly had one American parent, natural born could easily mean not a naturalized citizen…right? THAT definition is fine with me.

NO MORE PRINCETON! NO MORE PRINCETON! NO MORE PRINCETON!
They should have been chanting "Yemen Under Seige, Our Soldiers on the Run". How's that Yemen model of success gong for you, Obama? Utter failure.

Yes, he is a good guy, no he’s NOT a Canadian and yes, you will still be an idiot.

I should also point out that this is anti-American/anti-2nd amendment NYC where they want NO ONE to even OWN a firearm much less carry it in ANY fashion.
 March 15, 2015 at 11:49am
You make some great points but all I was really doing was responding to the stupid, politically correct BS comment within the article. I guess I should have pointed out, for the ignorant among us, that having their firearm in their purse was an awful idea. But then again, if they carry, they have the responsibility to already know this sorta thing.
When it comes to the which is better, open or concealed carry debate, I frankly don’t care which way one chooses to carry so long AS THEY CARRY. Both have advantages and disadvantages but neither makes someone 100% safe. NO CARRY surely makes one LESS safe or downright puts one in danger.
When it comes to the “imprinting” issue, I really don’t stress over whether my firearm “imprints.” While I prefer to carry concealed, or the way I see it, “covered”, I mainly do it to respect those who feel uneasy around a firearm….or to keep these anti-2A businesses from knowing I am exercising my 2A rights so they don’t act stupid and raise a fuss.

What else would one expect from a crappy place like NYC?
Then there’s this part: “this is just not the message you want to send to young women to just go out and look cute with a gun in their purse. That looks crazy.”
I think actually having the gun in the purse (with NO image ON the purse) not only is much more preferred but makes a woman look a heckuva lot cuter.
As a female, and, a Conceal Carry License holder, the last thing a Conceal Carrier wants to do, is IMPRINT! I rather someone guess does she or doesn't she, and, be really surprised when they guess wrong. As a retired police officer, the preferred method to conceal carry is not in a purse where it can be stolen, or, hard to get at. Personally I like a ankle holster or Belly band. Imprinting will only get you shot in advance of the attack.

Oh, and one other thing, how can she diss Bush while supporting those who, of the elected masses in attendance from D.C., ever had ANY connection whatsoever to the civil rights movement of that era? John Lewis is the only one I can think of that did and he’s LONG SINCE strayed from what he fought for back then. Hell, obama came over there in ’08 talked BS and claimed he was born as a product of this movement when his parents/guardians were either non-citizens from Africa & Indonesia, a black communist mentor or white communists and couldn’t care less about what was going on in the civil rights movement!
