I canceled HBO after Larry David thought it was hilarious to splash urine on a picture of Jesus. Vote with your wallet.

Love the guy (black) who points at the guy on the ground and walks away laughing. Some poor acting there.

Geez- one person isn’t responsible for educating another person when conducting a financial transaction. The person selling the object should have done their homework. The person buying the object pays what they think the object is worth. This isn’t hard, people.

“Society deteriorated’ ????? Maybe you’d like a horse and buggy to get around. The ability exists to pay for your purchases on your phone. Period- full stop. The clerk was so clearly out of line it is ridiculous that anyone here is trying to defend her or denigrate Starbucks in the process. The app is convenient. Actual money is filthy dirty. But- importantly- how the customer pays for her purchase is absolutely up to her. That clerk is a rude bully who was rightly fired. The customer stayed calm through the whole thing. It’s called manners, class and decorum- none of which the clerk has.

“Lodging a legitimate complaint” is too high-brow for our little friend there.

It’s an outrageous abuse of power from the little man who would be king.

Happy you countered this article with an accurate analysis. The 3/5ths clause helped ensure that the South could not re-instate slavery. It is almost always misinterpreted and often used to illustrate our inherent racism. It should, rather, be used to show the commitment of the North to preventing the possibility of a return to slavery.
Sorry, PattiR, but I don't know where you got that.
The 3/5ths clause was part of the original Constitution -- which recognized the existence of slavery. The clause could not "ensure that the South could not re-instate slavery" because the South HAD slavery at that time (and for decades subsequent).
What the 3/5ths clause DID do was to place a PENALTY ON SLAVERY upon slave states by diminishing the representation in the House of Representatives that the slave state WOULD have had IF there was no slavery in that state.
I'm reading Patti's statement generously. I'm presuming she knows the timeline and means something along the lines that the "diminished representation" stacked the deck against the South rolling back any incremental progress as "wins" were tallied.
Perhaps not but it's clear that she's generally on the right side of the misconception Chad Kent is under. So I'm willing to read broadly.
For example, a powerful South may have got some traction on weakening or rescinding the anti-slavery possibilities inherent in the Article I Section 9 "importation of such persons" clause.

Your mother loves you- lots. I’ll bet some of the other “thugs” wish their mothers loved them as much.
DO THAT NOW!!!!! STOP THESE DAMN CRIMINALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Daly was also a thug. So what do you expect. Shoot to kill on US soil is UNCIVILIZED and set the country back into stone age. Go to Korea. They will love you.

And how would you expect them to do that?

Relax, Webster. He might have been spelling phonetically. In Texas, “sense” is correctly pronounced “since” as “pen” is “pin.” Get with the program. Maybe find something of merit to comment on. And- “Dr” Detroit- no one is thanking you for being a nitpicking troll.

The difference is that those religions encourage VOLUNTARY compliance. No one is getting stoned for non-compliance. Really- are you THAT blind?

No, it’s “him.”

This is disgusting. No excuse, but the parents seem to be very young. Dad needs serious punishment and anger management. Mom needs to protect her children.

Hey, Kanye- God will not be mocked. Galatians 6:7, fyi.
Oh My, "someone named KW" is going to burn in hell.
Kayne will get his chance to be judge by God. It is not our job to do.
if o had a Bible........
this is why America has been/ will be destroyed
I think we all know where Mr. West is going… But hey, that’s up to God! And I don’t mean this narcissistic clown…
Perhaps you didn't read the article. Kanye has nothing to do with this publication. His lyrics and a quote in which he calls himself God are taken out of context. Rappers boast about themselves. He's not claiming to be GOD, but a god witching the entertainment industry. If the author of this post had done any research he or she would have discovered that Me. West is a man of faith and speaks about it genuinely on numerous of his songs. TheBlaze and their propaganda never ceases to amaze me.

I was thinking the same thing. For Norquist, lying is the same as breathing. He doesn’t think twice before lying because it is perfectly okay in his ideology.

Fun fact: John Kerry’s daughter recently married an Iranian-American whose close relatives are still in Iran. Huh!!! Imagine that.
And, of course we all know that John Brennan (HEAD of CIA) is a Muslim Convert.. he did that when he was working in State Department... makes a nice neat little package, doesn't it?
I didn't know that about Norquist's wife. good grief... there are few more rabid people than the "Palestinians" ( quoted because there is no such place really as PALESTINE ) but to hear any of them... they have been robbed of their birthright; (forgetting that Lebanon, Syria and Jordan took about 10 times the amount of land that UN gave Israel...whatever, they are RABID anti Israel and terribly ambitious.. very ANTI AMERICAN and most are not acquainted with any God ... much less the GOD of ABRAHAM, ISAAC and JOSEPH.
YOU BET IS RELEVANT to the conversation. Turn over any rock today and you will find an ISLAMIC creature, ready to take over world enslave all the rest of us that they don't murder in the most gruesome of fashions... and people say we don't need CRUZ??? are they totally nuts????
