I wasn’t looking for another reason to vote for Cruz, but thanks.

And you just proved why you would be impossible to reason with. You either didn’t read what you originally wrote, didn’t mean what you wrote, or are completely backtracking. You are a typical flip-flopping liberal.
To remind you, you said: “It’s not quite the same thing, is it?” This was in reply to someone who was pointing out the irony of the president ignoring the targeted killing of Jews by Muslims and then assuming that a recent murder, which he has no info on other than news reports, was motivated by religious bigotry.
So, you are completely wrong in questioning whether the killing of Jews by Muslims is any different than an atheist killing a Muslim if both are motivated by the faith, or lack there-of, of the victim(s).
Of course, I am granting you the premise that this murder was motivated by religion at all. Since I have no access to the evidence and only know what the MSM has reported, I will refrain from making any erroneous assumptions. A novel idea, I know.

To say that you kill others for what they believe is the same as saying that you kill others because they don’t believe what you believe.
If you don’t understand that line of reasoning, then you don’t understand basic logic and it would simply be impossible to have a thoughtful discussion with you about pretty much anything of consequence.

It would be a gigantic waste of time to try and “repeal” ObamaCare with Obama in office. Instead, what each and every Republican should be saying right now is “We are not going to fund ObamaCare, and we are going to cut taxes and we are going to decrease spending and we are going to put tariffs on Chinese imports and we are going to force the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline and we are going to secure the border and we are going to start acting American again in spite of the clown in the Oval Office. All these things are plausible – repealing OBAMACare while OBAMA is in office is not one of those plausible things.” De-fund it today, and we can repeal it altogether once an American regains the office.

And how’s that election victory working out for you?
Meanwhile, back in the present, the Democrats are losing the Senate and Obama sucks at everything.

This is the pinnacle of Progressivism: to take a stance completely contrary to logic and reason, and then blindly attack all who oppose your stance. This world view will eat itself over time since it is prone to group-think and lacks new ideas and innovation. Just stay out of its way until it’s done feeding on itself.
Bill, you helped create the Ultra-Progressives, now they’ve turned on you: you reap what you sow.
The gods of the copybook headings are bringing their “terror and slaughter” as we speak.

Rabid, in most instances you’d be right, but this cannibalization of their own kind is a result of the positive feedback loop which began in the 60′s and has reached its zenith today. I like to call it “Ultra-Progressivism” in which the attacks are blind and doled out to all, but are based in the opposite of normal logic and reason. Doublespeak at its finest.

True, but in this case, it’s more like idealistic stupidity induced by left of Stalin professors.
You don't apply to Berkeley unless your starting point is already left-wing secular progressive and the only thing you're trying to accomplish is meeting like minded people to be part of the networked radical left-wing cabal. These are not the young adults that get brainwashed. These are the ones that go in with their eyes wide-open and want to learn how to brainwash everyone else.

At the time I voted on the question at the end of the article, 71% of the people who read it don’t stand by their principles and fear retaliation (i.e., they answered “Maybe”).
And this is why our government walks all over us: we are too scared to speak up and express our values. Instead, we have become mindless lemmings who fall in line and trudge toward our eventual demise. We see it coming, we know it’s coming, but we move toward it anyway – because we wouldn’t want to cause ourselves suffering.

“The results are indicative that emissions from established fossil fuel harvesting techniques are greater than inventoried,” Kort said. “There’s been so much attention on high-volume hydraulic fracturing, but we need to consider the industry as a whole.”
I think you’re all missing the point of this article. The conclusion that these “scientists” are drawing is that the methane emissions are anthropogenic in nature – not naturally occurring seeps.
“I mean, the proposal was this big! You guys can’t expect me to read all that! You didn’t take the time to read the legislation, so why should I read the bid for the website?”

“Wait, so you’re not arresting me today? You guys are dumber than I thought.”

“Ms. Sebelius, if you were to estimate the size of this piece of crap legislation and the subsequent website, how big would you say it is?”
“It’s at least this big around. I saw it walking down the hall of the White House yesterday….wait, what was that? Oh, my! That was the First Lady? Ooops.”

“And so after our initial project kick-off meeting to get this thing rolled out, I turned to everyone and said, ‘F@#k it, let’s go get some burritos!’”

Must be a private school because that kind of material is verboten by the Kool-Aid drinkers. Tends to sour the Kool-Aid for the uninitiated.

Or maybe he could just man up and act like a parent. Not today’s kind of parent, but what would be referred to by today’s wussifiers as a “hard@$$”.
