Walmart, to show how wonderful and anti-racist they are, refused to make a cake for a customer who wanted the Confederate flag with the words “Heritage not Hate” written on it. A quite reasonable and conciliatory message on a cake, one might have thought, but there is a blanket ban on the Confederate flag on anything at Walmart. Toys, clothes, jewellery, – anything.
So the customer returned to the store and asked for a cake with the ISIS battle flag on it.
That was no problem at all. He got his cake as requested.
Sam Walton is spinning in his grave, a company headquartered in Arkansas disassociates itself with the confederate flag yet produces a cake with an ISIS flag on it.
I used to think that debt would destroy this nation but public schools and the ignorance they produce are gaining ground. I'm a libertarian and think both cakes should be made and I'll leave the censorship to the fascist AmeriKan government and the mindless lemmings that follow them unquestioningly.

I also liked him, Wigone.
I think people a being a bit tough on him…

I’ve always thought it was because of the hashish connection also, Argyle. I knew some of that but I’m grateful that Mr Sexton educated me further. It was apparently not uncommon for warlords to use hashish to bolster the courage of warriors in olden times. I believe it was also occasionally used by Indian rebels in the days of the British Raj.
I enjoy learning the etymology of the words. Funny pastime, I know, but I’m delighted to learn that Mr Sexton seems to share the same interest…

I liked him also, Daithi.
He’s the sort of person that I think I would have enjoyed a gentle argument with over a couple of beers.

I’m with you, East.
Based on the photos, I give her an 8.0 for her diving skills; a 7.5 for her cleaning skills; a possible 7.0 for her outfits; and a definite 9.5 for yummy!
You might not be offended.
But I bet if your two small daughters saw this, THEY would be.
See, when people dismiss someone you love more than life itself, it offends.
Totally with you there, kiwi. Must have been an extra slow news day

Mr Soros is also a major contributor to the SPLC…

The SPLC was founded by Morris Dees, Joseph Levin Jr, and was joined by Julian Bond.
Morris Dees is an opportunist driven by money. Most notably he defended a white racist in the early 60s – paid by the Klan. Arrested in 1975 for attempting to suborn perjury (by means of a bribe) in a murder trial, the charges were eventually dropped but the judge refused to re-admit him to the case.
No-one likes him. He has been called “a fraud and a conman”, and the leftist JoAnn Wypijewski wrote “No one has been more assiduous in inflating the profile of [hate] groups than millionaire huckster, Morris Dees…”. Another left-wing journalist, the late Alexander Cockburn called Dees the “arch-salesman of hate-mongering”. http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=1809
Julian Bond, the SPLC’s first president, is a Marxist who has been associated with the Communist Party of the USA throughout his life (and the SPLC seems to promote the communist agenda espoused in their 60s list of goals). Mr Bond is a life-long supporter of the Castro regime. He is chairman of the NAACP and has been associated with the Black Panthers. http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=642
I can’t be bothered looking into Mr Levin.
The SPLC is a communist inspired, American-hating organisation consumed with acquiring money.
And this crowd is attempting to take the high ground in the Charleston atrocity and stir things up.
If your mom spent so much of her life connecting to God that she dies in a prayer meeting, there's a very good chance that you're going to become the stellar individuals that we are seeing in these kids.
They need our prayers - life without a mama is hard for anybody.
The grace of God is amazing!!
It has helped these young people do something that would ordinarily be impossible!

She certainly is a class act, Fo2. Once again Ms Swift sets a shining example to all young people the world over – and to the rest of us, quite frankly…

I agree with you, Jarhead.
The kid was 14 at the time and 14 year old boys can be a little depraved before they get control of their rampant hormones. I’m not condoning the offense but I think that the parents handled the situation sensibly and well. There must be millions of families that would have been less forthright about it.
Jill Dillard, the second daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, told Kelly that she suspected there might be an agenda behind the story. “I mean, I know that the tabloids that released this, even have — you know, they’re used to exploiting women. They have the parent company –”
“Well, Bauer…they’re a major porn provider…” her sister Jessa Seewald interrupted.
“So I don’t know if they are — maybe their mindset, they’re just used to making objects out of women and maybe we just didn’t seem any different,” Seewald continued.
The parent company of the slimy “In Touch” is Bauer, and they are based out of Germany. From an article about them.”Bauer Media Group, based in Hamburg, Germany, publishes 600 magazines, over 400 digital products, and 50 radio and TV stations around the world, including In Touch magazine, the publication that uncovered the story of the abuse in the Duggar home. They also traffic in porn — some of it Nazi-themed. But an investigation by TheWrap has found that there is a darker side to the privately held company, including publication of at least one magazine appealing to neo-Nazis, as well as significant involvement in the distribution of pornography — including Nazi-themed porn movies. These lend perspective to Bauer’s legal woes in the United States, including a $50 million defamation lawsuit by Tom Cruise, filed last October after two U.S.-based publications alleged he’d abandoned his daughter Suri. In fact, Bauer generates dozens of legal complaints worldwide each year about invasion of privacy or libel, according to a lawyer who has frequently opposed them.The Duggar sisters are absolutely correct. In Touch and Bauer Media Group make money, in part, by exploiting women and trafficking in content that sexually objectifies women.They exploited the sexual abuse suffered by the Duggar sisters for money, pure and simple. And they’ve done it with countless other women over the years.
4everhis -- interesting commentary about the Bauer group.
I don't think most 14-year-old boys are "depraved" enough to want to touch prepubescent girls. Especially not girls who are just five years old at the time.
Arkansas law supports this, by only criminalizing sexual contact between minors when there's a significant age difference (four years if the youngest is 12 or older, three if they are 11 or younger). In March of 2002, when the Duggars told the police Josh first confessed to them, Jana was 12 and Jill not yet 11 years old. But his oldest victim was Jill -- he never touched Jana (the only one with whom it would not have automatically been criminal).
I mean, ordinarily I would say that most 14 year old boys aren't "depraved" enough to even want their pubescent sisters, but this *is* Arkansas.... 10 years old is awful young even for Arkansas standards, though. (Yes, I live here too.)
Ya Moriah, no kidding you “live there too”, as you are right on board with all the gossip bottom feeders! Isnt it interesting, that in 2006, this all started with a gossip such as yourself, sending Oprah’s producers of all people, an email. Have you read that email? Its in the Police Report. It is DRIPPING with malice towards the Duggar family, including blatant envy, pretty disgusting. Of course, the COWARD GOSSIP that sent it, hid behind “anonymous”. More disgusting, and scary, is the fact that this “anonymous” person sounds like a member of the Duggars Christian community/Church. Ya, Church gossips, slanderers, envious pathetic evil amongst the Congregation…those that sit in the back of pretending to be “Christians” in the Church and gossip about everyone, including the Pastor….cowards, evil amongst the sheep they are…
Oh, and another thing Moriah, it is NOT uncommon AT ALL for this to happen, yes with sisters, cousins etc..Claiming that you live in Arkansas, and implying the classic "its the South" ignorance, doesnt say much for you. Probably a liberal that moved to that State, arent cha? Just so you GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT, the DOJ states that the majority of offenders like Josh are 12-14 and 85-90% of them go on to never commit sex crimes again...
It's honestly sad the lengths you guys are going to try to defend this molester and his enabling family.
@4EverHis: So, how many other 14-year-old kids do you know who touch their prepubescent siblings? You're misusing statistics. By your logic, I could state that the fact the majority of murderers in the US are white Christians means it's common for white Christians to murder people. Which is obviously not the case.
It is not normal or common for 14-15 year olds to fondle five year old children. While a third of the people who do sexually abuse children are minors themselves at the time, it's no more "normal" for a 14-year-old to fondle prepubescent children than it is for adults to do so, or for white Christians to commit murder.
Moriah - Typical left wing liberal maneuvering of you, and now, lol, you attempt to speculate with what I stated. BTW, you ignored commenting on whether you are a liberal that moved to Arkansas. Thats telling. I didnt say that is was "normal", but rather not uncommon amongst hormone raging impulsive pubescent boys. The levels of the offense are different of course, and Josh's was for "fondling" (with clothes on) and the majority of victims didnt even know he had done anything. But the likes of you, TRY to sensationalize it as if he raped them for years! You ignore the DOJ stats, like you ignore every other fact, as you thrive on this gossip crap. The FACT is, that the DOJ collected stats on this issue, because it exists you idiot. It exists enough for an accumulation , which ruins your sensationalistic crap. Ever talked to a Professional about this? Whoops, I have, but then again, you would never believe even a Professional, doesnt fit your gossipy style. Pubescent boys try to overcome their hormone driven impulsive behavior. As far as stats are concerned, as Professionals have noted, they arent accurate as to the count of occurrences, due to the fact that these situations are kept within families usually because embarrassment, and people like you, and not usually reported. But hey, guess you wouldnt mind the entire world knowing if it happened to your family. For that matter, you could care less about the victims in this, because your need to gossip is your soul purpose

I’m with you on this entirely, Foo.
I can’t understand why this isn’t receiving the public attention that it deserves. It directly contravenes both the 1st and 2nd Amendments in the most egregious manner and yet there is silence.
The price of freedom, it has been said, is eternal vigilance. But everyone seems to be asleep and good men, for the most part, seem to be doing nothing…

That statement is wrong in every respect, cmandd.

Does anybody have a link to this bill? I’ve looked and I can’t find it. It’s pretty hard to make a sensible remark without being able to study it. I expect that it will have some effect on New Zealand, but who knows what that might be.
That's the problem. Purported text of the bill is only available on Wikileaks. US Senators and Representatives are permitted to only read the bill in an isolated office. They cannot take notes, make copies, get reprints or have any advisor in there with them. This is representative government? I think not.
Here's a link: https://search.wikileaks.org/?q=tpp
