    Mr. Santorum would prefer you avoid using the phrase “stream of Santorum” as it evokes an image from which he has been attempting to distance himself.

    Good, don’t vote. I’m a Democrat, so I want to see the Republicans lose. I’m a liberal Democrat who thinks that Barack Obama is too moderate, but I will vote for whoever runs on the Democratic ticket because I understand that the Democratic Party can’t run a candidate who only appeals to guys like me, and I don’t take it personally. If people who think that all the candidaates who might win the Republican nomination aren’t conservative enough refuse to accept that they don’t get to wag the dog, that’s good for the rest of us.

    What I couldn’t understand for a long time is why Beck is so fiercely against it, and then it dawned on me – he is deeply delusional. He really thinks that he is, or someday will be, one of the big boys of the internet, like a YouTube or Netflix, when the truth is that he is and always will be much closer to your crazy uncle Larry who blogs his ravings to a handful of readers and has every reason to be for net neutrality.

    What would make you think he’s going to military prison? Neither he nor the guys he killed were active duty. He’s going to the state pen

    All Jews must die is just an opinion, it doesn’t constitute a credible threat to kill her in the eyes of the law. I didn’t read anything about the passenger asking to be let out of the cab. The original report in the Daily News said that she demanded to be taken back to her hotel and the driver complied. Even if you wanted to make the case that what she claims that he said was an illegal threat, there would still be no arrest because he would be able to beat the rap by employing the following fool-proof legal strategy:
    Grover Standpipe, Attorney at Law: Mr. Mia, did you say those things?
    Cab driver MD N. Mia: No.
    Grover Standpipe, Attorney at Law: The defense rests.

    An objectivist what for? Objectivism was a philosophy propounded by an atheist. I don’t see why an objectivist would be angry about governmental authority not being used to favor the promulgation of Christian teachings over dissenting views.

    Beck already knows that this story will go away, and he knows the real reason it will go away. According to Fox News:
    “Police won’t say who initiated the contact in the sting operation that led to his arrest. A spokesman for the Fairfax County police said the department has a proactive child exploitation unit that makes as many as 100 arrests per year of people allegedly seeking sex with minors.”
    If police won’t say who initiated contact, that means that it was them, and that makes it entrapment, no matter how sleazy the guy they entrapped or the crime they entrapped him into may be.

    It is hate speech, so what? Hate speech is legal and part of the right of free speech. Everyone is entitled to express an opinion, even if their opinions are all evil and stupid.

    I read about the hate, but what’s the crime?

    What are her damages?

    Because when you threaten somebody in writing that is provable, but when you threaten somebody verbally there is no evidence to make a charge stick.

    Not in New York, if you want to keep a license from the Taxi and Limousine Commission, you have to be willing to drive to any location within the city limits any time of the day or night.

    He did have a right to abuse her and terrorize her. It’s called freedom of speech

    I don’t know if it happened or not, and I don’t see any way that we ever will know.

    Hate, yes, crime, no. Without a threat that raises a credible fear that the driver was going to personally kill her right in his own cab, there is no law against shooting his mouth off.

    I’d like to thank all the little people – Billy Barty, Peter Dinklage, Herve Villechaize, Vern Troyer, Warwick Davis, Harry Earles …

    Again, read the story. It says that the child’s arms were covered with welts and bruises. The T-shirt itself said that she got a “good woopin” last night. The mother was not arrested just for putting her kid in an embarrassing shirt.

    Reverend Al is a national treasure. Whatever their reasons for keeping him on the air, I’m glad they do.
