    “that there is no official ”religious corporation” status outside of the nonprofit realm, per se, and that his clients had merely changed their status from an S-corporation to a Limited Liability Corporation.” Typical lawyer double speak and of course he knows that the operating agreement established for the LLC may very well have language relating to being formed for religious purposes. How’s about billy get a copy of their LLC operating agreement. And I doubt the ACLU is terrified and running scared. Tell you what I’ll believe the individuals here who stand fast for constitutional rights when some business owner discriminates against a christian customer based upon their jewish, muslim or budist beliefs. As any citizen who practices those faiths, according to you have the same right to discriminate against a customer based on religious beliefs.

    Always like to see the responsible media folks jump on the pile and tie relatively insignificant things to heighten the drama. You don’t think the DOD doesn’t waste twice this amount of money every month is unnecessary, expired or faulty supplies? It is beyond well documented that no government agency has wasted more money, over longer periods of time than the military. Particularly on outsourced contractors and pet congressional projects.

    Wow Megan figured out he acted irresponsibly all on her own. How insightful.

    Ok who exactly are the idiots who actually believe any self serving surveys, studies or statistics put out by any special interest group, whether it be the NOQ, NRA, Religous Groups, etc. Access to information is the best thing about the Web and the worst thing about the web. More people are subjected to and buy into nonscenical propaganda than ever occurred in the worst government regimes. But of course there are no bigger fools than those who agree with something merely because it is consistent with their unfounded ideology and beliefs. I have yet to see any survey or statistic referenced on this site that could pass even a minimal scientific validity review. But then again you still have individuals who want to believe the universe and earth were both created 6,000 – 8,000 years ago despite light that is visible from the earth that is more than 10 billion light years away. For example there are those who would state that “liberals” whatever that term might mean at the time can’t understand reason. As though Sarah Palin, Sharon Angle, Christine O’donnell and M. Bachmann are not perfect examples that rational thought and understanding reason have nothing to do with being conservative or liberal, republican or democrat. Hence, the growth in independent voters who actually vote based on proven facts and the candidates ability to actually do something purposeful.

    “To a significant level, patriotism, party affiliation, and national interests have shaped evangelical Christian thinking to the degree that it nullifies and trumps our identity as ambassadors and agents” And what’s worse most intelligent individuals notice that the actions of this group within the areas of patriotism, party affiliation and national interests are also predominately symbolic, as they like most people are driven by self interest. Their vigorous defense of THEIR ideology and beliefs has more to do with self promotion than it does rational thought, logical extension and/or true beliefs.

    “Everyone I know is having some sort of [health] problem,” Beck said. “And the last thing we look at is at our food.” But of course when Health Officials and the Schools try an put healthier choices for kids, people here make it sound like a socialistic plot. How’s about you ask Glenn now what should be offered at school lunches? And yes if kids would rather eat the cookie than the apple, you make the cookie hard to find.

    Exactly, let’s hope the interns made a better case in terms of the quality of their work.

    Good to know the cops are focusing on the really big crimes that plaque LA.

    Dana couldn’t find class if it promised her more of the undeserved media attention she already receives.

    Dana, how sad it must be to be an Ann Coulter wannabe. As though Ann Coulter has ever written anything unique or requiring of talent either.

    Great example of the stupidity of having 8 year old kids in equipment playing a game that obviously one of the teams is incapable of playing at a reasonable level. The kids would do much better if you worked on skill development for the first 3 or 4 years and had them play touch or flag football. And this would apply to all sports. Ever witness how ridiculous it is to watch 8 year olds or younger run around on a soccer field with little if no skills and no real sense of the game. And of course it is absurd to put equipment on 8 year olds for any number of reasons. As far as this fine and suspension it merely reinforces the absurdity of the activity. We recognize that some teams will be so bad they will be beat by 33 points or more so we are going to take action against good teams who hurt someone’s feelings. If your worried about kids feelings being hurt they should not be involved in equipment, full contact football.

    If 3 or 4 officers cannot subdue an unarmed suspect without punching them or kicking them, then they all should be removed from duty for being physically unable to perform the job duties. Just because your are a cop does not give you get to elevate the level of violence in the situation.

    “It’s no secret that Democratic candidates up for re-election this year have been running from being associated with President Obama amid his anemic approval numbers.” FACTS – PRESIDENT APPROVAL rating 41.5% CONGRESS APPROVAL rating 14%. So its no secret that Republicans and Tea People don’t want to talk about the loud mouth no shows in Congress who all deserve to be shown the door.

    “But a spokesman for Hunter’s re-election campaign told TheBlaze a question of “stolen valor” cuts deep, especially in military community.” Ah so Hunter praises for his service and let’s his spokesman call him out on. Trying to cover both sides of the issue seems rather cowardly to me. And of course Hunter has never done anything in his life that he regrets.

    And exactly where is the proof there is anything in these emails related to Fast & Furious other than a statement from Judicial Watch President, an organization which is fueled by coming up with controversial government actions ? So no reason to believe they might not exaggerate a bit to get more eyeballs to their site. The fact that there was a subpoena for Holder’s emails from a particular time period does not mean these have anything to do with the program. Not surprising that an purposely inaccurate and inflammatory post would be referenced and repeated here.

    “Interventions for reducing lead exposure in firing ranges include using lead-free bullets, improving ventilation and using wet mopping or high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuuming to clean,” So the only thing standing between making ranges as safe as possible from lead contamination is greed, ignorance or a combination of both. Or is lead poisoning also part of the Second Amendment right?

    “Despite a high percentage of violations, the Susan Recce with the National Rifle Association told the Times “the issue of lead problems for indoor ranges is extremely rare.” Always can depend on an industry spokesperson who works for the gun manufacturers by way of the NRA…. check their funding sources and percentages and you’ll understand the reference.

    And by the way for the history revisionists here, there has been healthy eating resources and instruction in schools since the 1950′s so why do you fall for this complete BS that it is somehow obma socialism that drives a concern for kids well being.

    @Vision Harry…. yep no doubt we should just outsource school cafeterias to McDonalds. Why would anyone want to encourage their kids to eat a healthy balanced diet. Geez people used to praise Grandma when she instructed her daughter that her grandchildren would begin eating healthier foods if they became hungry enough. But similar to many inner city kids who suffer from a void in terms of a parental guidance and influence, kids are allowed to eat so much crap in the form of cheap calories that they have become the most well feed, nutritionally starving generation. But hey just give them another hot dog and can of coke.

    So essentially the Dept. of Agriculture is providing young kids who’s parents are clueless and eat the typical unhealthy american diet a version of the app that intelligent college students and intelligent young, middle aged and older adults download to their phones to manage what they eat along with their routine exercise. Good thing that pete unearthed this insidious conspiracy. What next, the Dept. of Education might fund programs that educate kids about the misuse of alcohol and other recreational drugs.
