    I am a progressive and I don’t see a thing wrong with this. They were talking about investigating groups that might have broken the law. Any group that would be investigated would have already been approved for their tax free status. It never mentions only looking at conservative groups.

    All of you are assuming the investigation wouldn’t look at liberal groups too. I can’t believe you guys keep falling for this click bait.

    I love how this article only talked about the Republican Party history up through the passage of the Civil Right Act. They don’t mention anything about their terrible record on race since.

    Democrats don’t hide their bigoted past. They learned from it and changed the course of the party. Republicans have done nothing be devolve on this issue.

    If the Religious Right wouldn’t have pushed their ‘faith based’ agenda, then none of this would have ever happened. Did you really think Atheists were just going to sit quite and let religion be shoved down their throats? It’s time to take a good long look in the mirror and realize that your actions radicalized them.

    I think Mr. Root is confused about what “smoking gun” means. His three examples are just accusations with no proof behind them. I can’t believe people read this garbage and take is seriously.

    You’re thinking of 50 cent.

    Monk-
    The fiscal year starts in Oct. So, the 2009 budget was set by Bush in Oct 2008. Even before President Obama won the election. The 2009 deficit was Bush’s.

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances”

    Phil– not a violation because he is still allowed to say it, the governemnt didn’t stop him. The 1st amendment never says there aren’t consequence for your words. Persecution from private citizens is not a violation of this constitutional rights.

    Nativity scenes on Public (government) land– by allowing the nativity scene they are making “an establishment of religion”. They are not allowed to do that.

    I know those two facts don’t fit your narative or world view but they are not up for debate. It is the law.

    i replied before i read your second post… but in response to your 2nd post.

    Please explain to me how is 1st amendment right was violated. I expained why it wasn’t. but then you just came right back and said it was. Please explain how the government shut his speach down. Was he arrested? Is he in jail? Is there a pending investigation into what he said? Does he have the ability/right to go on TV or do an interview and say the same thing?

    I don’t really get how this is a reply to the point I made. But… those nativity scenes are the a violation of the seperation chruch and states because they are on public (ie: goverment owned) land. This is not may opinion, this is the opinion of the courts that have heard those cases.

    And that artist didn’t get put in jail either. So if somebody “screamed” about the 1st amendment issues then… they were wrong too.

  • December 20, 2013 at 12:13pm

    This has nothing to do with the first amendment. The first amendemnt only deals with the government making laws against free speach. Is Phil in Jail? Has any state for federal government punished Phil at all? No. This is about the right of A&E, a private company, to chose who they want to represent them and who they pay millions of dollars to.

    I would have thought you guys would have understood this. See as how you are all constitutional experts.

    That is wrong. It is the hardline Republicans that voted for those new sanctions knowing that it would kill the deal. Obama did not want the new sanctions. Your hatred for Obama does not allow you to see the situation for what it is.

    I say seceed. It is a well documented fact that blue states pay more in taxes to the federal gov then they get back. We are too busy subsidizing red states. If you red would just do it already, it would save us blue states a lot of money.

    Isn’t it already shut down?

    @PoleSitter
    Thanks for the though out response. It made me think, and I would sincerely like you list a couple of those books you mentioned. But i think there is a hole to your logic. You are assuming all recessions are the same. They are not. This current recession was made more difficult by the great job loss and the never before seen drop in home prices… These things could have been help to recover much fast with a jobs bill (which the Republicans rejected), a larger or second situlus (which the Republicans rejected) or increase infastructure spending to get people back to work (which the Republicans rejected). There only idea was more tax cuts for the wealthy. This recession was going to long road to hoe no matter who was in office but they could have done a great number of things to help, but at every turn all ideas where blocked for no other reason than politics.

    @pragmaticpatriot
    That last comment hardly seem pragmatic.

    What this chart shows me is: Bush tanked the economy worse than any President since WWII and it has taken Obama a long time to get us out the mess, while having to fight against unprecedented Republican obstructionism.

    What do you see?

  • February 27, 2013 at 3:30pm

    I guess you budget cutters are starting to see the real life consequences of your jihad against government.

    @AvengerK
    Wow… the Family Research Institute? Thirty more seconds of reading tells us that they are widely discredited and designated as a “Hate Group”.

    I haven’t read your CDC stats yet… but thanks for finding that for me.

    @tolerence
    Thanks so much for the fact based post about how terrible and dirty “the gays” are. I would love to read where you got all your numbers. Could you post a link to your research. I’m not trying to be lazy, I tried looking for where you got your facts but I couldn’t find it.

    Here’s a statistic that found while I was looking for your research… 40% of statistics are made up.

  • February 25, 2013 at 6:15pm

    Wrong… all the rights I talked about are in the constitution. The SCOTUS has ruled on all of those topics… they only rule based on the constitution. Which means every limit to rights I listed are based on constitutional law. The Bill of Rights is the first ten amendments of the constitution. (I didn’t know if you knew that, so I threw that in for good measure). But if you must… what about speech. That is the 1st amendment… there are many limits to speech. In the interest of brevity I will not name them all. You can google if you are interested.
