A study determining that African-Americans think Obama’s doing a good job?
The organization releasing the videos put out the short version for the average person and also release the raw stock footage it’s made from. They aren’t hiding or distorting anything. If you feel the short version “distorts” the information…well, when you cut anything down in time to make it fit, you’re losing some context. There’s a difference between cutting something out that completely changes the narrative and cutting something out that leaves out minor details you don’t have time to include.
Most every respected media outlet does it WITHOUT gutting the essence of the story they are telling, but yeah, you lose some details in the editing process.

Do people still use Facebook?
I made a fake profile for my name so anyone data mining gets a bunch of really odd junk.

This is just as pathetic as the “ribbon campaigns.” They did the red one for AIDS and then everyone else had to do one.
If only we could get liberals to make jumping into a bottomless pit vogue….

No, Think_Twice2, you are wrong.
Not one state created same-sex marriage by the will of the people. Most every one of them did it by judicial fiat. A couple had a HANDFUL of legislators push it through. Without exception, every single time the issue was put to public referendum, it was voted against.
And please don’t play “legalese” to justify your position. You know full well that it was not legal until courts started creating it out of thin air a few years ago (and faced IMMEDIATE legal challenge). There is no comparison to the history of interracial marriage.

Interracial marriage was a reality before Loving v. Virginia. Same-sex marriage WAS NOT a reality until SCOTUS created it out of thin air.

Yeah, it’s not like the gay couple wanted a wedding cake….oh, wait a sec….

Well, educators have “feminized” education where boys are not allowed to be boys and are forced (often by medication) to act more like girls.
Only a question of when men are going to be expected to walk and sit like women.

And since the “age of majority” is an arbitrary number set by the state that has no scientific bearing on a person’s ability to make a knowing, consensual decision, it’s only a question of when you can hook up with someone under 18 because they are “mature enough” to choose.
Its not like Christians have any principals to stand for or be martyrs for .. Obviously its a concept they don't understand ..

1. Sorry for your loss.
2. You’re a moron.
How would anyone selling a gun KNOW if someone is CRAZY or INSANE? If a seller has reason to question, they can refuse to sell a firearm to someone, but they are not qualified to diagnose the customer. So, if the buyer hasn’t already been diagnosed as being a danger to himself or others, there would be no improvement over the existing law.

Wow. A Progressive not letting a crisis go to waste. Who would have thought it possible?

As a Christian, I can say this.
America is not a THEOCRACY. As such, no one faith can be institutionalized. We are founded on Judaeo-Christian principles, but the law isn’t required to adhere to them.
Maybe the Founding Fathers never contemplated a time such as this, and as such, they made no provision in the Constitution for it. As a REPUBLIC, all views and rights are to be respected.
As we’ve embraced “tolerance” and the “church” has grown ever weaker in America, the wickedness and perversions of false ideologies have gained ever increasing prominence. The law does not allow Christians to take back the nation by act of Congress. This is a spiritual battle, not a carnal one.
The problem with freedom is that it can only work in a virtuous society. Case in point: (this is my opinion of what will come) soon we will have massive federal regulation of flying drones, as either sport or hobby, or even profession. Why do we need tyrannical laws? Because of the widespread abuse that happens when freedom is abused, such as spying on neighbors, interfering with transportation creating safety issues, perhaps even harassing people in various ways using drones that could drop caustic material, or slice someone up in a kamikaze attack. And the list can be added to.

I think the basis for saying it’s NOT doable is that just getting to the MOON deals with health risks, and the MOON is within our magnetosphere.
Mars is outside all of that and no comparable magnetosphere. The radiation exposure to the people who go will result in who knows what damage and shortened lives. Long-term viability would be suspect at best. I know some would say we could add shielding, but that adds weight and fuel (unless you go for an orbital launch), and it’s all the more material you need to send ahead to make shelters with adequate protection.

I’d give him the benefit of the doubt EXCEPT where it comes to e-mail.
If someone steals your identity, they typically WILL NOT use your e-mail account because it’s a sure way to get caught (unless they are logging in to mess with your existing account). They’ll use a new e-mail address and the rest of your stolen info to make an account only they know about. Before e-mail, identity thieves would open an account, steal your mail (for whatever got initially mailed to you) then immediately change the mailing address on the account so you’d not get future mailings.
Agreed, but AM does not verify email addresses used to register, anyone can use any email (whether it's theirs or not) to sign up. The bank account information is suspicious and it's not impossible that it was stolen elsewhere and used to make him look bad, but considering the amount of users of AM (based on the leaked data) I think it's more likely to be true.
However I think the fact that he's an Islamic speaker is the main reason this is considered a news story, considering there are literally tens of thousands of other users, -some of them verified government employees or military service members- I'm sure you could find a somewhat well-known individual who is Christian (since ~70% of Americans identify as Christian) but that wouldn't be as newsworthy for the Blaze.

Is it just me or does anyone else see a metaphor about US race relations in this article. [wink]

I find it ironic that it’s destruction of a BUILDING that qualifies as a war crime to the UN.
The UN actually has limits when it comes to these animals?

A syndicated columnist (Mr. Leonard Pitts) one again spewed his “pro black” garbage in my local paper’s opinion page.
Guess what? He finds “all lives matter” to be offensive.
I’m sick of this nonsense. Of all the “injustices” the BLM is “championing,” how many were later proven to be justified? They have knee-jerk reactions to any act of “WHITE ON BLACK” violence regardless of the facts behind the incident.
If we judge the BLM movement by it’s actions (or lack thereof) they should be called the “Black Lives DON’T Matter” movement.
There is a modern day holocaust against BLACK unborn babies by an organization founded by a WHITE EUGENIST. Other than perhaps black pastors in the pulpit, who in the black community is crusading against this atrocity? Where is the BLM movement on this?
Every day there is a genocide in America’s inner cities where black THUGS are MURDERING innocent BLACK women and BLACK children every day in numbers vastly outpaces all “white on black” crime. Where is the BLM movement on this?
I’m sorry. It’s either “All Lives Matter” or it’s “No Lives Matter.” To crusade the rare (by comparison) legitimate wrong of white on black crime but turn a blind eye to the daily slaughter done against your own brothers and sisters is the definition of hypocrisy.

Well, certainly there would be a need to RETHINK how we address time off. Many places I know don’t give ANY paid leave (except as required by law) even for the FULL TIME workers. So those on the lower income side can’t afford to take time off from work. Most don’t even want to let the staff take UNPAID time off.
Heck there are places that give you paid time off, but good luck trying to use it without it causing problems.
If you want to work 365 days a year, that’s your choice, but HUMANS need down time for t themselves and family. If, as a culture, we shifted our priorities to be more human-centric, it would work out.
Right now, we’re on a race to the bottom (thanks to globalism), and it’s destructive in ways that go beyond simple economics.
