    How did “traffic violation” get changed to traffic conviction. These are two separate and distinct terms and the way wacko sources like this get traction to obtain eyeballs for their web sites and raise “anti-administration” money. To repeat such an absurd assertion without a lick of research is well…. par for this site.

    Agreed, putting it on facebook is the ultimate patting yourself on the back. However, the real message here is small business owners who seek to make more than a reasonable return on their own effort and investment at the expense of the workers through low wages and absurd staffing levels.

    “To be told they’re going to force me to convey a message other than what I want to convey” Ok could we get past the drama queen nonsense. You bake cakes and sell them, that’s all. What the individual’s who purchase the cake decides to use the cake for is really none of your business. You see your ideology, opinions and beliefs end at the tip of the other persons nose, cause that’s where theirs begin. And I assure you the founding fathers would similarly point that out to you. A fundamental principal of our country is that INDIVIDUAL liberty and freedom supersede those of the majority and certainly any religion or religious group. Read the Federalist Papers and you LEARN that as learned adults they were able to separate governmental policy from their own individual beliefs and the most honorable of them noted at times purposely in contrast to their own.

    Why it is just trying to draw attention away from how much money it wastes on the military and weapons that they pay twice as much as they are worth, many of which don’t work as spec’d and promise either. And yes you can’t fix stupid, but then again how smart can you be to not notice you weigh over 300 lbs.

    Oh ok so your saying the NFL and the team owners are liberal….. hey just because your paranoid doesn’t mean they are not after you. lol. Religious expressions don’t belong in the workplace nor within professional sports. Symbolic gestures like these are made by individuals seeking to bring attention to themselves and their individual faith, not God, Alah, etc. We are talking about school children looking to get the sticker on their paper.

    Well if we are going to reference and be advised regarding domestic terrorism, I yield to the folks in Oklahoma City.

    So why exactly does this site give additional attention to this type of white trash? Stories like this, along with the ads that run here and on GB’s radio show speak volumes of the profile of the audience.

    “The Left and Islam are rabidly anti-Israel.” This has to be one of the stupidest statements I have ever seen here and that is saying something. If in fact, as consistently asserted here that all democrats are liberal, then a great number of American Jews are anti Israel, particularly since they are predominately liberal also. However, they do tend to be intelligent and educated which is not the characteristic of anyone who would assert that a particular group thinks in a global manner. It is possible for intelligent, rational individuals to be conservative on some issues and liberal on others. You know like individuals who are so liberal in terms of their arrogance that they pretend to know who does and who doesn’t agree with specific Israeli policies. Wait can you agree with some things Israel does and not with others. Hmmmm not if you are a conservative from Texas… or is that still to broad a group.

    Interesting to note sharona didn’t feel a need to single out the Ford Foundation although no surprise she didn’t do some research to report on how much funding each group provided the university with and for what reason.

    Right and of course he would reveal himself to the ancient world and only to certain groups and then challenge that group by sending what they would consider a false messiah. If there was a God as described by christianity then why would he not contact individuals today or for that matter the entire world? Yes you look around and clearly discern that there is a higher energy or force in the universe. But the more likely conclusion is that we have no idea what it is or isn’t and probably could not comprehend it if it was revealed to us. What is increasingly clear is that a collection of stories written 1,000 or years ago by followers provide no real information or insight regarding what this higher force or energy is. It is actually the christians who put more restrictions and limitations on God, particularly when they exhibit the height of arrogance by interpreting and applying what they regard as his word. And of course it would be rather revealing to learn how small a percentage of christians have actually read the entire bible.

    what a total absurd post. If they are Islamic immigrants, their current location means absolutely nothing.

    I am reminded of an interaction that happen one day in the mid 1990′s when I was at home and decided to have some fun with the solicitors from the Church of the Latter Day Saints. They presented me with a brochure and asked me if I knew where I was going when I died. I scanned their brochure and noticed it mentioned 144,000 christians ascending druing the rapture. Of course when I asked them how many members the church had, they both proudly indicated over 1.5 million. To which I asked which of the 1.5 million would be in the 144,000 that ascended and how could I be assured I would be one of the 144,000. They of course were dumbfounded and decided it was best to move on to the neighbors house. Don’t take my word for it, look at some of the old literature that came out of this cult. The 144,000 being the number saved was in numerous publications of this “church”

    What bothers me about policies like this is that they are based on manufactured statistics that are essentially lies. For example they expand the definition of sexual assault to include a guy bumping into a woman’s **** at a crowded party and then report that 1 our of 4 women are sexually assaulted and then proceed to reference the term rape as many times as possible to equate bumping into a woman’s **** with rape. Both of my son’s were put through the nonsensical “training” at college as though they were potential rapists for the mere fact they were boys/men. Neither one of them is even remotely capable of committing a real sexual assault, but that is not to say they are not healthy young men. If they are attractive to a young woman and she returns the sentiment they will engage at what ever level the young woman is comfortable with. They will not however give her a breathalyzer test to insure her verbal Yes is real and her hand grabbing her lap is sincere. Young women should not be provided with more opportunities for next day remorse or a cause of action when the young man doesn’t view their relationship as involved as she does. If she wants an involved relationship she should not have put her hand in his lap or said Yes so soon.

    “made a crack about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s weight” And that’s all it was, a crack. It was not sexual harassment anymore than commenting on how plastic Miss American or NFL cheerleaders are. In the mist of the Ray Rice feeding frenzy it would be wise to provide actual research on how definitions and statistics are being manipulated to bring attention to the cause of zealots. For example, one of my favorite that I heard again during my son’s college orientation is that 1 in 4 women are sexually assaulted. Then they quickly make sure to use the rape term as much as possible. Of course when you ask about the definition they use for sexual assault you are either dismissed or told they will send it to you. Of course when you see the definition you understand how zealots quickly loose credibility by showing that they will lie through statistics to further their own agenda rather than base policy on reality and facts.

    @Bearway64 I realize they hide supreme court decisions and opinions in books, but they are rather consistent over time relative to the need to separation of church and state. And much of that position relates exactly to what it appears you understand enough to reference. The language in the constitution refers to the individuals free exercise of religion. I have not seen one of these stories have anything to do with an individual exercising their religious beliefs. But unfortunately like this one they usually have to do with that exercising going beyond their individual rights to one of religious promotion and coordination of religious expression within the context of a school or governmental entity. With a little bit of reading of the Federalist Papers you will come to realize that the founding fathers objection to any relationship to organized religion and the government is crystal clear. They opposed it as they opposed the criminal enterprise that was the church of England and the government. Let’s at least agree that the promotion of religion by organized churches has more to do with their own well being than it does with spreading and following the word of God.

    Enough with the wining already. The pray chain is just as easily and more appropriately developed, maintained and forwarded by a local church. These we want attention for our faith cause is getting obvious and tiring. And they should not be provided with even 5 seconds of coverage or attention.

    You have to wonder about the quality of our military and veterans when the SS, CIA and NSA are supposedly made up of the best and the brightest of them. Doesn’t say much about the average member now does it.
