The p1ssing and moaning on this comment section has grown loud this election cycle. (trust me, I’ve been here and active since Beck launched this site just like many others have and this is by far the worst it’s been) I’m not happy Trump is going to be the nominee either but good grief folks… do you really want Hillary in there? Because that is what you are going to get with all these little temper tantrums you are throwing.
Hey guess what? We ceased being a Constitutional Republic long before Barrack Obama or George W. Bush was a common name muttered around the dinner table. The country our founders left us died long ago.
If you were all so worried about things like the constitution and our liberties and rights so much then why didn’t you fight harder for candidates like Rand Paul in the beginning? Instead I saw a lot of people tearing him down on these comment sections here. Oh there were a few supporters standing with Rand but overall people shut him down before he even had a chance. After he was out I was surprised Ted lasted as long as he did…
All in all though… we’re stuck with Trump whether you like it or not. It’s him or Hillary. Pick a side. Or get out of the way.

Hey Never Trumpers guess what… we’re between a rock and hard place now. We KNOW what Hillary is going to do. You can sit there and pout all day long and say “well Trump might do the same thing”. MIGHT. He MIGHT do the same thing. He’s an opportunist. A businessman. He MIGHT not. I don’t like Trump either but you know what? I’ll take my chances because it’s better than Hillary at this point.
If you don’t get out and vote then you have NO RIGHT to complain in my opinion. Down vote me if you want to. My guy was Rand Paul but we couldn’t get him in there thanks to the neocons and the establishment folks. Now I’ll go with whoever beats Hillary.
Trump will probably be worse the Hillary deadlock.
:) Oh, no worries, I’m betting we’ll all vote… It’s just gonna be for neither of the two progressives. I gotta thank trump for two things:
1) exposing faux conservatism and who exactly they are
2) making the electorate so polarized that the third party ranks will be swollen this year.
We have every right being that's part of our constitution and bill of rights! Free speech... Right? Oh wait your a trump supporter and you don't believe in that. Well unless it's you and trump's supporters.
Well get over it! We will bitch cause you guys forced us to do this. By the way you all want to say that the American people picked trump, hate to tell you this but no not every single American did.
The American people voted and some voted for Cruz and other voted for trump. I'm not sure what you all think but that sounds like the American people picked they're chosen candidates. Meaning Cruz is also America's pick and that's why I will write his name in come November and still bitch about what Hilary does. It's my right to do so since we live in the land of the free.
"we’re between a rock and hard place now"
We're between a rock and a hard place because of the Trump supporters that put us between Trump and Hillary.
mastice: Thank you for your rational, common sense thinking. Trump wasn’t my first choice either, there were at least 2 other candidates (Cruz wasn’t one of them) I liked better than Trump, but when it became obvious that Trump was going to be the presumptive nominee, even though he wasn’t my first choice, I knew I would still support the Republican Party. I AGREE with you wholeheartedly that ANYONE is better than Hillary, and not voting for the Republican candidate, is the SAME as voting a democratic ticket. The truth is, none of us knows what kind of president Trump would be, but that is true for every prospective president – NOBODY KNOWS until that person becomes the president, EXACTLY what kind of leader they will be. Having said that, Hillary is an ESTABLISHMENT politician with a track record, and we KNOW EXACTLY what kind of leader she would be, which is why it’s so important to keep her out of the White House. We can’t undo the GOP Primary results – they are what they are, and Trump is the nominee, and any real republican, more than anything, should WANT TO stop another democratic presidency because we KNOW it would be disastrous. I’m open to seeing what kind of president Trump would be – much more than watching Hillary be the president we know she’d be. Thanks again for your comment. Beat Hillary!!!

This actually hits home in some small sense. I run a small business from home as I’m sure some of you here do as well. Most people who know me look at me and all they see is how well I am doing today. They think my success was a straight line from point “A” to point “B”. But what they fail to realize is that I’m really at about point “Y” right now… I’ve been all the way through the alphabet and failed that many times to reach the point I am at today. I think that is why a lot of people fail too. They fail once and give up. They don’t realize they have to keep trying and never give up.
I hope you come back and read my comment. First of all, congratulations on your success! That's terrific. But, many years ago I attempted to realize my dream of self employment. Unfortunately for me, it failed (long story), I went broke, and was petrified to go back and try again. My dream burned all my savings, as the type of business it was, required a good amount of cash infusion. But, I'm glad some people never give up!

A 20oz bottle of pop around here runs anywhere from $1.50-1.80 depending. A tax like that would raise a single bottle of pop up to $2.50-2.80. I don’t smoke anymore but when I first started smoking, back in the early 90s, cigarettes cost less than that for an entire pack.
A soda tax is ridiculously stupid if you ask me.

He was an Apostle before attaining sainthood too… isn’t it funny how many people fail to realize their names are descended from religious context? (even funnier when it’s an atheist a-hole)

So is my right to breathe the air in this country without having to pay a penalty, or tax, to simply to exist here… hence the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act.

How about this solution? Get a group of citizens together, set up a non-profit, have the city sell the land to a this private, non-profit, organization with an attached provision that it remain a public space for 100 years (or however many insane number of years) with the statue in place. Let them hold annual fundraisers or events to raise money to keep it beautiful.
…and then post a sign that says all are welcome except the Freedom From Religion Foundation and affiliated parties.
it is an idea mastice that is a very interesting idea.

Ultrasecularlib you really need to brush up on your history and pull your head out of your rear end. Your statement is so full of fail that I don’t even know where to begin. I guess the main point that I could make is that being raised one thing does not make you such a thing. Hitler was raised in a Christian family setting but he openly shared his detest for Christianity later in life. This is documented fact.

I understand the need for open dialogue on most, if not all, issues. But as a Catholic… I’m ashamed of Georgetown University for inviting this woman to speak. She represents an organization which is 100% at odds with the Right To Life movement and just her stepping foot on their grounds is a slap in the face if you ask me.
mastice: Heinrich Himmler and his cast of “Death’s Heads” are blamed for killing millions of innocent victims but who is counting the millions of American Black babies aborted and their body parts scavenged for doctors in biomedical research? Wasn’t that the work of Dr. Josef Mengele (The Angel of Death) at Auschwitz? You know they also had women S.S. working inside the concentration camps. Ironically, they were all blonds. Just like the current American PP leader.

Reminds me of the old saying: “I’m not saying let’s go kill all the stupid people… I’m just saying we remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.”
How many laws are on the books, that protect Stupid people from themselves and forces the Smart people, that's the rest of us, to Pay for their mistake and sets up safety nets so they live long enough to breed more Stupid people.
Let's face it, genetics will tell, Idiots don't raise genius's.
I'll buy that.

Chuck Norris and Superman once fought each other on a bet. The loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants.
I don't care who you are, that's funny right there!
The closest he's ever gotten to a bison was from the backside...
Prolly got kicked in his "free-mans"
Ha ha ha awesome.
It's too bad we can't directly post photos on here. But here's my simple contribution to the thread.
Chuck Norris once upper-cutted a horse. Now we call it a garaffe.

Awe, what precious little snowflakes. Quick, we must protect them all before they melt… /sarc
$20 says they never forget this particular lesson in school for the rest of their lives. It will forever be engraved on their memories simply because one student had the guts to stand up in front of the class wearing a hooded sheet to add dramatic flare and context to his project.

I hate to say it, but I think you might be onto something there.

vires_interius; I couldn’t do what you do, especially if kids were involved. You have my respect. I mean that in all sincerity.

For a man who demonizes those who use tax loopholes and the tax code to their own personal advantage he sure did a pretty fine job of it. 18.7% tax rate on a $436,000 income? According to the Tax Foundation he should have been closer to 30% at that level of income. Guess being the president comes with having a good accountant now too.
Except we saw in Virginia, mysterious huge voters in line for Romney suddenly not counted.....other states as you know, more voters than those registered. Who knows???
As joe stalin said (more or less) "it's not who votes, it's who counts the votes.
I think some cheating was involved with that. If not the attacks with no reaction from Romney really sunk in.
I knew Romney lost the minute after the 3rd debate, where he laid down. Everyone saw what I had witnessed, yeah, there was some cheating, some dead voters, some magical voters, and even some lost ballots, but that 3rd debate, was the proverbial straw!

I told you so… first they will outlaw the guns, then they will outlaw the blades… I guess the two I have hanging in the back of my garage I use to chop down weeds in the grove out back when they get out of control could land me in jail one day if my state ever does the same. Ridiculous.

Here Freespeechtest, I’ll help you out since you’re obviously challenged on the issue.
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.” Article 3, Section 3.
Cut, clear, and dried. Simple to understand. That is the ONLY form of constitutionally defined treason in the US.
 April 14, 2016 at 3:55pm
Oh please Freespeechtest, treason? Go read the constitution. It clearly defines treason and this doesn’t even come close.
