Affirmative action = socialism. In communist Poland affirmative action applied to farmers and other people who were in the less educated classes. Same concept, same result of too many people exceeding their level of incompetence. But that’s big government for you.

If the funding for PP “will never happen” with a Republican controlled Congress, why did it happen with the current Congress?
John Kasich, just a tad too progressive….

Of course, when there’s no substance appeal to feelings, That will get the best person for the job every time. We’ve seen that for 7+ years now.

The difference today is that Trump will have to “make great deals” with America-hating radicals. Tip O’Neill was a progressive, but didn’t hate America. Good luck with that, Donald.

Rather than appealing to the “economically downtrodden” I believe Trump appeals more to people who know they have been repeatedly lied to by the government. He says what they believe to be true and says he will fix it. That’s what many of us want. The big issue is, will he use constitutional principles to fix it, or his phone and pen?
"Constitutional principles" because, Unlike the current POTUS, President Trump will know how and do the job right. Congress will be embarrassed by how Trump goes over their head to the people like Reagan did. Only this time it will be more fun. We will be watching Congress learn and dance the "Cotton Eyed Trump" to his every wish. Just wait!

“What she must have meant…” I wonder who came up with that bit of pro-Clinton bias. An objective reporter would simply report what she said, not put words in her mouth. Did that reporter read her mind?
ALL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS WERE VETTED BEFOREHAND. You know that. The same with Obama. Why else would they fumble so badly when asked an off-the-book question. Remember Obama fumbling when his pictureboard, errr sorry, answerboard, sorry again, TELEPROMPTER broke down??????????? SOMEONE ELSE IS RUNNING THEIR SHOW/AGENDA.

Bernie has great plans for other people’s money.

Let’s see, the government takes money I earned by force. That seems to fit the definition of “theft” if I would not have voluntarily given that money for purposes for which the government exists (see “The Constitution of the United States of America”). Then the government gives that money to other people. Since government is not a charity, that’s improper use of taxes. It also seems that someone who takes money from the government could be called a “taker,” the definition fits. That’s especially true if the person getting the money is fully capable of earning his or her own money rather than taking our taxes.

Our constitution is actually a libertarian document. Ted Cruz is a libertarian in many ways — listen, really listen, to what he says.
He's not Libertarian in any social ways, so that leaves him economically "libertarian", and socially statist. So a Republican.
Ted's a Constitutionalist, which is kind of like the kissing cousin of a Libertarian....

And who at Twitter will decide what constitutes “hate speech” and how can they know? If someone calls someone else “racist” or “Islamophobe,” both of which terms I regard as hate speech, will Twitter block such twits?

Of course they demand. Islam says it is superior to everyone not Muslim and sharia says no Muslim may ever be offended. Too bad for them this is not a Muslim country under sharia, although that’s their goal.

So it’s OK for the atheists to be offended but not the governor? Seems there’s a bit of atheistic hypocrisy going on.
atheists dont try to remove displays out of offense. they do it because the current interpretation of the first amendment is essentially that either everyone gets to put up displays, or no one does.
so the governor can feel free to leave the FFRF display up, and leave up a traditional nativity, or he can take both down. offense has nothing to do with it.

So Malala, do you have a way for us to tell terrorist Muslims from peaceful Muslims? If so, please let us know, because then we wouldn’t have to say maybe all Muslims should be prevented from coming here. Taking steps to protect ourselves is an expression of common sense, not hatred.

The human spirit glows from that small inner light of doubt whether we are right, while those who believe with complete certainty that they possess the right are dark inside and darken the world outside with cruelty, pain, and injustice. – Saul Alinsky
He did not say that. He said that apart from God, there is no foundation for good or evil. There is only preference.
It is entirely possible for a non believer to live a moral life. This is because we were made in God's image, as moral beings.

Boycott the racist playwright.

“Terrorism has no religion?” Perhaps, but a religion has terrorism. The Koran speaks of striking terror into the hearts of Islam’s enemies. Islamists have implemented that quite effectively. But remember, sharia defines “terrorism” as “killing a Muslim without right.” Thus ISIS do not regard themselves as terrorists because those they kill they do not regard as Muslims.

Islam gives many Muslims a mindset completely alien to ours. The Koran calls Jews “apes” and “pigs” and essentially considers them the root of all evil. Fundamentalist Muslims who believe the Koran is the word of God laying down the laws by which we all must live will act accordingly.
