That gay couple are regular customers of that shop , they have always been openly gay and have never been refused service prior to this… The reason they were refused a wedding cake is because that involves the shop in endorsing a marriage that their religious beliefs say is illegitimate. If they had asked for the cake as just a cake and supplied their own pair of female dolls for the topping they would have gotten their cake.

The fine cannot be paid… pay for legal defense , set up an untouchable trust for their children and fund THAT trust… keep the money away from the state and make it impossible for the plaintiff to collect.

In Oregon you could ,,, you could easily order the book your customer wants from the very same wholesalers you already do business with and yet you refuse? But I wouldn’t worry about that Catholic customer ,, the pagan who wants you to order the bestiality book will sue you ,, he’s an ACLU lawyer…

“Magnetically Erased” is an attempt at making degaussing sound like a normal procedure… I was a data security and data-management pro for a defense contractor ,, it is absolutely not normal to degausse backup tapes , it is quite easy to identify what is on each tape dataset and to preserve data by simply not expiring the volumes… The IRS took abnormal steps to ensure that the tapes could not be recovered. I have responded to numerous recovery requests less difficult than recovering a simple e:mail servers contents or a particular persons mail,,, I blame the GOP for allowing the climate of corruption to continue unabated.
neidermeyer, J Edgar Hoover had a folder on EVERY member on The Hill. They knew it and passed every one of his budgets. Maybe the Ds have such folders so the Rs don't doth protest too much?
it takes time to get the noose tighter.
The dims have broken every court order and lied under oath to stall while both you and I knew about backup tapes.
Scooter Libby was condemned for much less and faulty evidence. Nothing happening here.
Those who degaussed these tapes need to be identified and offered immunity for reporting who ordered them to do it. Then the entire IRS needs a good delousing.
I also work IT with data storage and to make this more unbelievable, the backup environment is guaranteed be setup to backup multiple servers simultaneously so that means her data is scattered on hundreds if not thousands of tapes- physical or software. On top of that, being the IRS, i would think they would have some form of backup\archive so that if you argue with the IRS 5 years ago, they would have all documentation to nail u with.
Yes, email was sent, somebody got\still has the orignial email, Im sure it can be traced who she sent mail to and retrive copies that way but from my working IT, there are multiple levels of data retention to be not working before one must resort to that.
It is another one of those justice dept saying "we dont see any bias in our department" in the IRS department to not lift a finger.

Smoke much crack today?

It’s just a game played to sell beer and cigarettes on TV.
FIFA banned tobacco ads and sponsorship, at all events under its jurisdiction, 20 years ago.
Yes, they've reached the target audience of beer guzzlers and chain smokers with women's soccer fans.

VIDEO BLOCKED… Japan was the better team …

I block ads and still get unresponsive scripts freezing me up… TRAIN WRECK!
P.S. Mr. Beck ,, In Europe most people do not travel the distances we do here … AM radio with it’s greater straight line range will remain relevant here for quite a while as FM is too limited with only a 30 mile or so range…. at least until cars become equipped with cellular 4g receivers for internet content… and that is already happening.
The answer is more government funding ,,, it’s always the answer…
Seriously ,, I can save the researchers a lot of time and trouble… Women live longer therefore they have more time to develop the disease ,, also women tend to not think as much as men as they aren’t challenged to solve problems like we are ,, quite simply mens brains are better exercised and can suffer more loss before a disease state becomes apparent ,, for women their lives and later years are repetitive and boring ,, my own mother hasn’t had an original thought for 40 years and most of her friends are the same..
Can I have 10% of the grant money they requested now please?
Your research project is a failure. You do not pass go nor do you collect grant money.
Really? “also women tend to not think as much as men as they aren’t challenged to solve problems like we are” Did it ever occur to you, our minds melted listening to your perpetual bragging or stupid “watch me” stories? Or we are too busy,cleaning up your ********** messes while you sit in your easy chairs, or taking care of your whiny cry baby asses every time you catch a stupid cold?
“my own mother hasn’t had an original thought for 40 years and most of her friends are the same..” Must all be married to the same type of men. Men that steam roll every word that comes out of their mouths or tells them they have stupid ideas, because theirs are WAY more important.
Got news for ya. It is the fault of men like you, that women like that, are the way they are.
I watched my grandfather constantly cut my grandmother off every single time she opened her mouth. She was smart, however when people that say they love you, and talk like that, you shut up.. I watched her die for 6 years from ALZ, when she did, grandpa cried to me and said he never even knew who she was. I told him because he would not shut up long enough to listen.
BTW- I Co-Own 2 companies that run 24/7 with 60 employees. My husband tells our friends, he married me for my business, lawn, home and auto maintenance skills, and in a fight I have his back. PLEASE Stop spewing crap that women do not have problem solving skills.

Are you implying that she should have put her life on hold to fight this case? At this point she is obviously fighting for the public good ,, to end discrimination against white and Asian people that currently have much higher barriers to admission.

White Entertainment Television is what we had prior to dumbing everything down to a 5th grade (or lower) level … Columbo , Rockford Files , Barney Miller…

Watch a few “Dead Files” episodes ,, Amy is amazing ,, goes into a place with no knowledge and almost always uncovers past events and persons… The other shows are hokey.. This is the real deal.

I don’t care about Combs/Did-he or whatever he calls himself ,, I don’t even care about “BET” being a racist entity ,, they can have it ,, as long as it keeps these worthless “entertainers” off of the channels I watch…
You summed it up pretty well - worthless “entertainers”

Time to ban the Democrat party ,, the party that lead the south in their support of slavery, the anti-Lincoln party. Those hateful mouth breathers must be eliminated.
 June 26, 2015 at 6:56pm
Buy some ad space on that rag and place an editorial against the SCOTUS decision there ,, when they refuse to run it ,, even if they refund your money or tell you up front they will not allow it to run then you sue them into dust.
 June 26, 2015 at 6:47pm
You ignorant fool … try speaking on the corner about something the gay mafia opposes and see how far your “political” speech gets you… you will be arrested for hate speech and inciting hateful actions… if you are a psychiatrist attempting to help a gay person throw off unwanted urges you will be sued and made destitute by groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center that act as todays version of the KKK ,,, shock troops for the Democrat party and their supporters.
Have a nice day and I’ll be seeing you in re-education camp IL-945 barracks D.

it would simply be an acknowledgement that the cause for which they fought, the cause of slavery, was wrong,” Obama said.
That cause would be SLAVERY supported by the DEMOCRAT southern states that opposed the abolitionist Republicans. Maybe we should ban the Democrat party. The 1924 Democrat convention was widely called a “Klanbake” because of their well known support of their Klan terror group they operated to suppress the black vote… JUST THINKING OUT LOUD …
You're correct Neidermeyer, a major block of the Democratic Party did suppress the black vote and they were horrible racists. Woodrow Wilson was a horrible racist and a terrible president. However eventually the non-southern Democrats embraced the civil rights movement and the southern wing defected from the the party and Southern Democrats suddenly began voting for Republican candidates. That doesn't negate the fact that Confederate Battle Flag is symbol of those who fought to preserve slavery and during the 50s and 60s it became the rallying flag for those who wanted to keep segregation and keep blacks from doing silly thinks like voting and being able to marry whoever they wanted.
I'm sure there are plenty of white southerns who see the flag and remember war stories of long dead relatives much like how many of us enjoy the war stories of our grand fathers in World War 2. Except the men who fought under the Confederate Battle flag were fighting to keep the right to subjugate their fellow humans beings like cattle and horses where as our grandfathers who fought under the American flag during WW2 fought to stop Nazi genocide and Japanese chemical and biological warfare on the Chinese. There's a huge difference in the intent of the men fighting under those flags and by extension what people think of those flags.
I had ancestors who fought under George Washington.
I had ancestors who fought under Andrew Jackson.
I had ancestors who fought in California and Mexico, during the Mexican-American War.
I had ancestors on both sides of the War Between the States and not a single one of them ever owned a single slave.
And I've had ancestors and family members in every war since.
If the Confederacy was something to be scorned or ashamed of, I would have known of it long before I earned a degree in United States Military History, as well as two other History Degrees.
I've burned my eyes out on more original documents than you can imagine. I've read so many old letters, journals, unit diaries, reports, orders and newspaper articles that I couldn't possibly keep it straight without lists and "cheat sheets".
And I tell you now, Sir, that the War Between the States was NOT primarily about slavery, but States' Rights.
"My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that."
— Abraham Lincoln, 22 August 1862, in a letter to Horace Greeley, editor of the New York Tribune
