Yes, the government schools have done a great job creating uninformed sheep that only know how to put their hand out for a welfare check. I have a relative that used to work at a middle school. When asked what they wanted to do for a living when they grew up, many said they wanted to sign up for welfare. And why wouldn’t they; it is what their parents and grandparents have done. They don’t know any other kind of life. And the government is happy to keep them that way.

CAIR is interested in one thing only, civilization jihad. That is their goal, the subjugation of western countries under Sharia law. Once you come to grips with that, everything they do makes sense.

Talk about “climate change” ….

If they don’t like the terms of employment, go find another job. Or better yet, move back to your country of origin that shares your values. If you don’t like western cultural norms, leave. But of course the dirty little secret is that they moved here to implement civilization jihad, the overthrow of western civilization through infiltration and domination. No accommodation should ever be given. They can pray after working hours just like Christians, Jews, and others have been doing for decades.

That is what happens when you make blanket statements, argyle. They can be used to justify anything. Your second statement was much more clear and I agree with it. I was just making the point that having policies and reasons doesn’t mean there isn’t discrimination.

So you must have been okay with segregation and slavery, after all, “the policies, and the reasons for them, are clear [and] up front”. Want to try explaining that again?
It is a private school. A private Christian school. Attendance is voluntary. If they have a standard of behavior that you don't adhere to, or approve of, then you don't have to be there.
Only a dyed in the wool idiot would have interpreted my statement as supportive of slavery, or segregation.
Yeah. Pretty weak pooka.

Good luck with that in California. The place is swarming with illegals that can now get driver’s licenses and register to vote at the DMV. We are so screwed in California!
I just learned yesterday voter registration here in commifornia just added over two hundred thousand demoncats and lost over four hundred thousand repubs. This state is history. It's all by design one party rule. Welcome to the progtopia.
California sucks. I was born there and go back once in awhile. Its a sad place, the people are very numb to the real world. Its like they anything to survive.

Walt Disney is spinning in his grave over what has happened to his empire. Unfortunately, the minute these companies transition from family run operations to corporations, ethics and morality are tossed. Look at what Walmart has become. I have friends who work for Walmart and they all say it was a better place to work when the founder ran the company. Parents use to be able to trust the Disney brand; those days are long gone. I doubt that Disney will make this character lesbian, but it would not at all surprise me if they eventually create a lesbian princess for another movie. The Disney corporation is a corrupt organization that is only interested in the bottom line, not the children.
Don't watch the Disney channel. Look what Disney did to Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, Lindsay Lohan and many other Disney starlets. Disney has become a corrupt and filthy corporation run by mentally ill sexual deviants.

Agree. Women are absolute pigs in public restrooms. You failed to mention one of my biggest irritants in using women’s restrooms… the counter tops surrounding the sinks are always covered with water. Most of the time the sink area looks like a herd of water buffalo have just finished bathing. You can’t put your purse or anything else down on the counter while you wash your hands. It is even worse in the restrooms that don’t have paper towels; there is no way to dry the counter top.

[ Burrows noted that the Pennsylvania theme park “has and will always strive to accommodate all guests and employees – including members of the LGBT community – to ensure those visiting or working at Hersheypark are comfortable and feel secure.” ]
Sorry, Hershey, I do not feel secure sharing a restroom with a man I don’t know, especially when there is usually only one way in and out of most public restrooms. And the Hershey policy does nothing to make me “comfortable and feel secure”. Quite the opposite. It is a crazy world when policy for the 99% is governed by the “needs” of less than 1%.
I guess you better get used to only using the bathroom at home then, because Trans people have been sharing bathrooms with you since there have been Trans people... And you didn't even know! Lol
I live near the Park, and it really is a nice place. This is a real shame. I will not be taking my grand daughter there, as I had planned to do. We'll settle on Dutch Wonderland, or Knoebles.

[ “It’s been a very wet and cold start to the year in the Northeast, and it’s been reflected in our sales.” ] Yeah, people usually stop eating when the weather turns wet and cold… not! Come on, Target, you can come up with a better excuse than that for your poor performance.
People go out less and shop less. It's really not complicated or outrageous.
"Wet and cold" doesn't stop people in the northeast, that's almost an every day situation. Besides, Target stores are NOT just located in the northeast. If you believe that excuse, you'll believe anything. I guess that explains why you're a liberal troll, you believe all the liberal lies.

This is no surprise. Native Americans have been using the Redskins name for their youth league teams for years. Most are proud of the name and understand that the logo was created by Native Americans, including Walter “Blackie” Wetzel, a Blackfeet Nation political leader. Here is the story as told by his son, Don Wetzel:
Talk about “shiny object syndrome”; that’s what we had in 2008, 2012 with Obama, and now 2016 with Trump. I’m surprised Trump doesn’t have a “follow the bouncing ball” video playing in the background as he speaks; oh, maybe he does.
There is nothing wrong with taking a look at the Constitution Party to see if they are a viable option to the GOP; after all, when Trump gets done using the GOP there won’t be anything left to go back to.
I have been taking downvotes from the perpetually disappointed like Grandmother draws flies.
I absolutely totally agree Mr. yc that there is nothing wrong with taking a look at it...for NEXT time.
I confess that even with all that has gone down in the last several months all this passion for a party nobody has ever heard of has amazed even me.
Whereas you want to take a look which is more than fine...it is the right thing to do if you're interested... we got all the nay men chorus ponying up to vote on the basis of one TB article.... a TB article! It's silly even for those crazies.

Yes, the Constitution Party doesn’t even have ballot access in my state. I would really like to see it get access and grow before the next election cycle. The GOP is now nothing more than a burned out cinder, gone the way of the Whigs. The Constitution Party looks like a good fit for the future.
pooka_yc can we write in the Constitution Party nominee on our ballots you know as a write in vote. even if they are not on the ballot in our state? If enough of us did it might make it easier for them to get on the ballot next time. If enough of us did a write in for the nominee they could win.

I am all for the states having more control. I just don’t know how they can do that now since they no longer have a seat at the table (since the 17th Amendment). The U.S. Congress still has control of the budget (when they actually have a budget). The states could each come up with a different way to pay for their share of the budget, but they are still at the mercy of an out of control fiscal policy in DC. I guess it is a moot point to split hairs over this since DC will never change the tax laws. It is going to take a constitutional amendment using Article 5 to change the tax system. It is up to “we the people” to reign in DC; they aren’t going to voluntarily do it no matter who we elect or what promises they make.

I am so sick of voting against the Democrat wacko candidate by voting for a progressive Republican. I will give this party consideration. It would be nice to vote “for” something for a change.
The platform looks good. The tax proposal is a bit strange, considering the states have no control over the federal budget. The states have been screwed ever since the 17th Amendment was ratified. I would need to know more about the tax proposal.
I’d love it if they had a cross party election/nomination with Libertarians and Constitution Parties. Winner gets top of the ticket, other gets the veep slot. Combined effort between these two parties would be even more impressive this year.
The purpose is not for the states to control the federal budget (though there is a lot of sway, as each state begs the feds for handouts and grants).
The purpose is to get rid of IRS and at the same time each state will get to experiment with different alternatives and the best ideas will win out.

Star struck conservatives? A photo op? Fawning over Zuck? Who would fawn over or be star struck by Zuckerberg, let alone care to have a photo op with him? Have you looked at the guy? He isn’t particularly photogenic. Conservatives are right to meet with him and insist that FB remain a free and open platform for all viewpoints. Whether this meeting affects any change, time will tell.

The destruction of the Judeo-Christian values that are the foundation of this country.
“If the foundations [of a godly society] are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3
You tear up the old foundations and then lay new ones based on Marxism, Communism, and Socialism. That is the end game.

The problem is, no one knows the intentions of these men. They could be going in to try on clothes, they could be going in to take photos with their cell phone camera, or worse. The threat isn’t necessarily from the trans people; it is from the sexual predators posing as a trans person to gain access. Those dressing rooms and bathrooms usually have only one way in or out. A person could easily get cornered by a predator.
