    Blink, I think homophobia ( along with “islamophobia”) is a misnomer and an oversimplification of what some Christians feel about homosexuality. They believe it is a sin. So is sex out of marriage, lying, disrespecting you parents,etc. No one sin is greater than another, and we are ALL sinners. While there are some who are haters, I think the vast majority just want to be left alone.
    You are correct about the haters coming out the minute a homosexual dares utter something other than the liberal party line…my son is gay and a conservative, and he gets an insane amount of flak for it. The left does the same thing to women. Somehow, you are not allowed to be a woman with conservative views. NOW and similar orgs are only there to defend LIBERAL women….

    The immigration system sucks. My cousin married a Korean national while stationed overseas and it took TWO YEARS to get his wife and child here. Insanity. We are supposed to just let all the fence-jumpers cut in line over people following the rules? We had a line-cutter at Disneyland once… About started a riot. For the most part, the American people have a sense of fair play. We just need to frame the argument better and stop letting DEMS frame it as racism.

    I was thinking, ” Dumb and Dumber.”

    “Which freed three to four million slaves with the signing of a pen…” Yeah, and a long, excessively bloody war in which neighbor fought neighbor, brother fought brother, father fought son. Except this time, the president is the one wanting to keep people in chains. The American people, in the economic and socialist chains of a progressive agenda.

    When will this guy GO AWAY, already? We can’t let them get away withthis stupid voting rights argument! It works with the lo-fos and the no-fos… And the more they say it, the more idiots believe it. Perception is reality. It doesn’t matter that it’s actually progressives who are racist, bigoted, anti-republic, anti-freedom. With their lackeys in the media reporting the BS, the oft told lie becomes truth. How can we combat this crap?

    Meanwhile, there are people on this very site saying that you never fought for freedom, that no modern soldier has. It’s very easy to sit behind your keyboard and criticize those willing to serve; while I don’t always agree with the politics behind our military decisions, the men and women serving have proven themselves repeatedly to be courageous, selfless, compassionate, and worthy. May God bless the American veteran.

    Fantastic reference. Being a citizen should be a privilege, not a right. When something is handed to you, you don’t appreciate it. Take it for granted. Explains all the low info types willing to sell their vote for a sandwich and $5.

    RNM, as you point out, those grocery prices are only a snapshot, however, they have consistently been rising over the past several years. NOT at the false 1% inflation the government tells us is happening, but closer to 10% annually. Please remember that 2007-2008 oil prices were a snapshot, also, and the term is much more accurately applied to that particular event, which is widely referred to as the “Shock” of 2007-8. This was due to a confluence of many factors, mostly issues of production and increased demand occurring simultaneously, but those high oil prices were not indicative of normality. They were a SHOCK, which quickly normalized to previous levels once production and demand had been stabilized. The high gas prices we have had since shortly after Obama took office have remained high, and have only recently dropped in response to the Saudis artificially lowering prices in an effort to price the newly strengthening US out of the market. Don’t expect the prices to last, unless and until the energy markets in the US are truly unchained and allowed to flourish at their potential. BTW, I haven’t read many of your posts, but on these ones, at least, I appreciate the honest discussion without the name calling that so many who disagree resort to. Have a good day!

    It’s not that I fear death. I am hoping to be able to ease the suffering of my family, friends, and neighbors by being prepared for any eventuality.

    Judging from what we’ve seen with temporary “disaster” situations? I’d say within hours in the cities, within days in your nice, friendly, fairly rural towns.

    Except look at Russia and China making deals to go off of petrodollars, and the ME would love to do the same thing. Since we are no longer on a gold standard,and we no longer are a manufacturing powerhouse, an argument could be made that oil is what is propping up the dollar. Just a thought. Hope we have a miracle recovery, but doesn’t seem likely. G’day.

    My friend has five kids, shops exclusively at Walmart, and spends $950 a month on groceries. I have three kids, and spend closer to $550, but we eat exclusively wild game so that includes no meat.

    What these progressive synchophants don’t seem to grasp, so deeply convicted are they of whatever HuffPo tells them, is that there is NOTHING holding up the stock market. It is the very definition of a bubble. There is no long term growth or profits sustaining it. Also, wages down and prices up is not a good thing! That U6 unemployment rate is going to catch up with us, and they won’t be able to crank out food stamps fast enough. They have staved this off with artificial stimuli like raising food stamps by 30% (both in amounts and distribution) but there is nothing holding it up. We’ve basically been paying off one credit card with another, and soon the bill is coming due.

    What? On Halloween clearance? I am one of those crazy coupon shoppers and pay very close attention to prices. A bag of snickers fun size (the small one (11.8 Oz)) is a minimum of $3.99. The very big ones are easily $9-10. Again, exclusive of politics. Just grocery store reality.

    WTH are you talking about? Gas in 2009 was $1.70ish a gallon. The only groceries that I see not going up drastically are the crap nothing-but-sugar-and-wheat cereals and what not. All of the staples are more expensive. Especially meat and milk, eggs and butter. Five or so years ago, a pound of ground beef was $1.99, and I could get it on sale for less. Now it’s $3.89. Milk was $1.99, and now it is $4.05. At the same time, our real income has actually decreased. These are REAL numbers, exclusive of politics.

    Anyone else notice Islam doesn’t have their own Holy Sites? They just plagiarized the Jews and Christians, basically. Mohammed must not have had any imagination at all, or else Satan DID come to him at those locations in an attempt to desecrate them and create discord. He likes to do that.

    Typical lib…. Whenever conservatives disagree with policy, it’s because we want people to die, or we hate minorities, or are homophobic, or misogynist, etc. 8 million people have insurance that didn’t used to? First of all, I don’t believe those numbers. Secondly, how many people who USEd to have insurance now DON’T? Also, how many people are spending a larger percentage of their income on healthcare because they have no choice? What are they giving up because of the ACA mandate? Vacations? Buying a home? College education? Retirement? With the average family income down since O took office, how can ANYONE living outside the Beltway bubble argue that we are better off? How many people do YOU know that are either out of work or working at a less secure, lower paying job? I’m surrounded by them. Thanks, progressives. Thanks, apathetic, lofo voters.

    Hey why don’t you work on making it easier for Americans to come work your oil fields? Lol… Boy, is THAT a pain to try to get into!

    U6-”real” unemployment is at Great Depression era levels; record numbers of Americans on food stamps; Avg household income down since 2009; 17 trillion in debt; avg healthcare cost up; price of gasoline nearly twice what it was Jan ’09; energy production is up DESPITE Obama’s policies, not because of them; stock market is up (most analysts say it is another bubble) due to the artificial boosting by quantitative easing but velocity of $ is almost stagnant, meaning those selfsame banks that we bailed out are not lending $ but sitting on it and collecting risk free interest on $ that they should be lending; groceries are up 20-30% (contrary to what our government says about inflation) as any mom at the grocery store could tell you; there is more violence and unrest in the world as our “leader” waffles and “leads from behind”. All of that AND the NSA spying on individual citizens, the IRS being weaponized against political opponents (at a level Nixon only had wet dreams about!) and Russia and China emerging as allies against the west and the dollar. Yeah, he’s been GREAT.
