Why should the government have any say whatsoever in a private business owner’s decision to do or not do business with any particular individual? A contract is between willing participants, but now the government is forcing contracts between unwilling participants. That’s just wrong.

Illegals — tell your sob stories to the families of a couple here in Houston who were killed by an illegal who while street racing ran a red light and T-boned their car.

What law states that a school cannot publish a bible verse? I’m only aware of the US constitution prohibiting Congress from interfering with religious freedom, which, by the way, is what these benighted atheists are doing.
The 14th amendment makes the first amendment apply to all levels of government, and government institutions - including schools ..
If the 1st Amendment is limited to congress, then you have no freedom of speech, religion, assembly, ect, as your state and local government could ban all of those things.

Bad choice of words from TheBlaze. Foley was murdered, not executed. Execution implies for some crime. What was Foley’s crime?

The Democrat party has always been the party of racism. That’s why they keep talking about it.

Of course an authoritarian collectivist would try to take away freedom. if there are no good choices we have the right to say “none of the above.”

Greg Abbott, currently Governor of Texas, would add plenty of diversity of thought to the SCOTUS, just not the kind of diversty Sotomayor and her ilk would prefer.

Trump surely shows his “New York values” with his lyin’ about Ted.

Under the constitution we have free markets, meaning a business owner can choose with whom to do business, for any reason whatsoever. NY, and many of our other government entities, have chosen to interfere with free markets by dictating how businesses may be run regarding customers. It’s sickening. After all, a business owner who broadly discriminates against customers is more likely to go out of business through lack of customer support than one who doesn’t. And, customers can usually find alternatives. Let the market decide, not government bureaucrats. Stop bullying via government!

Can’t trust Trump or Cruz, but we should trust a likely felon who let Americans die rather than provide the protection they requested.

Maybe Bernie Sanders isn’t quite as authentic as he seems.
Progressives pitch the agenda as good, and may even originate as good ... but it's not, as long as it is progressed along by the left.

A small addition to the article. Intel was working on what they called the 4004, their first microprocessor, when they got a contract to build components for a calculator. Someone came up with the idea of writing a program for the 4004 to do the calculations rather than making more complicated, and expensive, circuits to do the various functions. They did it, and we’ve all seen the rest of the story. 4004 -> 8008 -> 8086 -> 80286 -> 80386 -> Pentium -> ….

Hate crimes require determining the offender’s state of mind, something that cannot be done. The concept of “hate crime” is one that leads to Soviet-style repression because the crime is defined based on interpretation rather than verifiable fact. Therefore there should be no such “hate crime” laws. I support very harsh penalties for crimes against police. Punish for the act, not the thought.

Yes the economy is rigged. The rigging started with the passage of the “progressive” income tax that led directly to the crony corruption we see today. The progressives disguise the issue by talking about rates rather than amounts and complaining about fairness. What’s “fair” is everyone paying the same rate with no deductions whatsoever, and no business paying any tax whatsoever. Why? because taking ever more from people who take risks to create value reduces their incentive to take risks, hence society gets less value. Businesses simply add the taxes they pay to the prices for their products, thus the consumer gets less for the money.
Face it, the only source of wealth is the productive labor of people, thus those same people pay all the taxes either directly based on what they produce or indirectly on the prices they pay, whether they realize that or not. Politicians love taxes imposed on business because they get two benefits: they get to demonize business for overcharging and they hide the taxes nominally paid by business from those who actually pay them.

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!
