They complain that the two boys were “protesting” LGBT principles. That would have been true if they had said something during the program, or if the shirts said “F the LGBTs' or something. As is, they merely did not show support for LGBT. But ‘not supporting’ and ‘protesting against’ are two very different things.
It seems it's not enough for those who see themselves as victims of inequality or predjudice regardless of who they are, that they are guaranteed fair and equal treatment under the law.
What they are really demanding, is that EVERYONE, not only accept their lifestyle, but embrace and approve of it.
I'm sorry to say, no matter who you are.....no matter race, gender, orientation, or religion.....we don't come to this world being guaranteed that no one will ever disapprove of us, or we will never be insulted or the brunt of jokes. These days people seem to operate under the delusion that they have the right to sue someone who offends them personally or who offends their beliefs.
It may not be nice, it may be unkind, or it may be both or neither, but not approving of someone's lifestyle for whatever reason, is definitely NOT illegal. People need to stop demanding others agree with them, or else. As far as I'm concerned, that amounts to bullying and makes them just as bad as those who they believe "victimize" them, while reinforcing their role as victim.
These days, if you aren't a white hetero male, you're a victim. Growing up in a WASP community as an Irish/Italian, I heard every guinea/wop joke in existence. So what! People need to grow a thicker skin and get over it. You are your own worst enemy.

I don’t know about Mx, but in this day and age with people able to pick and choose their gender, sexual identity, etc., I’ve decided to now consider myself a straight male lesbian.
I figure it’ll double my chances of getting a date. If I can’t find a date as a straight man, then I’ll get one as a lesbian. A win win, for me…
He doesn't even know the difference between prayer and reflection.

Anyone else get the impression that our government is actively working toward the demise of the US as we know it? That they are (almost) all driving us down the same road? That they are almost all NOT plugging the holes that they’re shooting through the hull of the boat?
Silly questions, I know, but I had to let my fingers verbalize ‘em.
They all want a Global government and they can't have it if the United States has a healthy vibrant government. Make no mistake folks, they've booked us for a long ride on the "Pain Train" so things will get so bad that it will appear to the masses that we have no choice but to be "fundamentally transformed".
Look up CLOWARD PIVEN STRATEGY --- you will see what OUR OWN GOVERNMENT is doing to us ----
This Administration has been trying for 6+ years to implode America. Wait until this fall and that western states army maneuver. Can anyone say "up yours" in one of the many middle eastern languages in case I have to answer the door?
Richalu, it's not an impression, it's the truth. But, those who know and are in a position to act are too cowardly. Therefore, we must call them out ourselves. There - I've said it; that makes two of us. Anyone else?
When the Demonrats and the RINOs get done, fundamental transformation will look good.

He got 90% of his legislative package passed in the “most Democratic state in America”.
What that tells me is that 90% of his legislative package gave the Dems everything that they wanted. And if, as a Republican, he gives Dems everything they want, he’s not the one I want to see in the big brown chair.

Sometimes I like to at least imagine a silver lining…

Giant blade? I expected a claymore. It’s a machete. Hardly giant. I wonder if the perps even saw it before running.
When he saw the perp stick his leg through the window he should have used that machete to collect a large DNA sample instead of just yelling at him. That would have helped the police solve the case and could prevent the bad guy from victimizing others. When you have the clear opportunity to stop crime and stop a criminal a citizen is obligated to do so.
I have two claymores. Bur I prefer my trusty 45.

And I, along with countless other Americans, will stand for your right to talk that trash. Now… Go to the Middle East and talk the same trash about their sky living wizard. See where it gets you.

No, no, no… Obama and his enviro buddies say trains are so much safer. Warren Buffet says so too.

And Obama’s drone program comes into my comment, or this article, how?
As far as that program though. Obama’s killed some bad guys, sure. He’s also killed many chances of gaining more intel about other bad guys.

I was struck by the banner on the Blaze homepage.
“We Strongly Condemn The Blasphemous Event…”
Of course they’ll hit the streets to condemn this event, But I’ve yet to see them hit the streets to ‘condemn’ ANY actual ‘event’ against innocent civilians by Islamic terrorists.
Are you joking? Obama has been more aggressive than bush ever was when it comes to actually killing bad guys. Obama has expanded the drone program, which is by far the most "productive" ongoing operation. I hate Obama for 99% of his policies, but people who say he hasn't taken action are idiots.

islamics are required to lie to those smart enough to not follow islamic perversion. There is no such thing as "moderate" islamics. They all follow the same rules. If they tell you they are sorry, and you are not an islamic, then they are lying.

What’s that again about ‘separation of church and state’? But the state injecting itself into every aspect of the church, well… that’s just fine, right? (NOT)
Separation of church and state is a very misunderstood concept.

I’ve a feeling this won’t work. Those in Congress today know that the majority of Americans approve of term limits. If they pass this, with limits being imposed after they are defeated in an election, it’s reasonable they would assume, considering Americans views on the subject, they would see that defeat, just so the limits could be quickly imposed.
They won’t pass a bill that they believe would be their downfall with an election defeat. Perhaps sooner than later.
Beyond that, it’s a good idea. I’d like to see a vote on this proposal, just to see what happens.
You give the voting public far more credit than they deserve on this idea.

Thanks for the link, brad.
So, 44 women are already members of the NYFD. 2 other women passed the test in Wax’s class. That proves women CAN and DO pass the test as it stands.
Why does this ONE woman get a pass?? What makes her special? Is she just the latest squeaky wheel in need of grease?

It’ll be interesting how they’ll word the headlines next year, once several people die in fires that these less than physically able firefighters can’t save.

First, I too pray the kids are ok.
A good theory, DZ. I hypothesize though that it was the roots that snapped. The tree itself seemed to remain intact, while the roots ripped at the base. Could have been cut while those meandering ornamental walkways were being laid.
I looked several times. It seems it may be windy. The tree seems to rock back and forth a couple times before losing grip.

Rigghhtttt. Because Islamic leaders are soooo full of common sense.
Rich: And, please, do not forget to mention their tolerance !

Rosey dear. The thing is, you’ve once again failed to comprehend the full phrase, ‘accept OR DENY’. YOUR CHOICE. But as I’m coming to understand, you have a tendency to cherry pick which quote, and how much of that quote, to use.
The Salem Witch Trials. Really? I’d like it if you could go back and ask the town of Salem if they burned those girls because they were non-Christian witches? Or was it because they were (alleged) witches, period.
A US government civil servant. So you’re a member of THAT entitlement class. Explains a lot.
