    “If I bought a Corvette and drove it over 100 mph into a crowd of people, would that be Chevrolet’s fault?”

    It’s more equivalent to stealing a Corvette, after killing the owner, and after driving over 100 mph into a crowd of people, suing Chevrolet, because they built a car that can drive over 10 mph.

    Where is the ACLU in defending this kid’s freedom of religion? Or do they only defend freedom from religion?

    “The school grounds are considered private property…”
    If a public school’s grounds are private property then prayers may be hosted by the school and administrator. If a public school’s grounds are private property then my property taxes are not to be used to support it. If a public school’s grounds are private property then my income taxes should not be used to support it. If a public school’s grounds are private property then the police are not to enforce the school’s dress code (only trespass laws/ordinances).

    Wow, and I thought it would be the fact the tights the guys wear don’t hide anything.

    I live in Colorado Springs, and not only was it cold, but it was snowing on Saturday.

    As for these guys, according to the local news, they had been drinking.

    “…survive an attack by a pack of 14 lions.”

    Shouldn’t that be “…by a PRIDE of 14 lions.”?

    In most cases I have a choice whether or not to enter someone’s private property. However, when the private property is loaned to the government as a polling place, I no longer have the choice. If I’m going to exercise my right and responsibility to vote I have to go to that polling location. I can’t go to any other. For all practical purposes, that property is under government control for the time the polls are open. Therefore, to restrict the legal carry of firearms is an infringement by the government on my right to own and bear arms.

    I happy he’s finally been released. Welcome home, Marine.

    “Obama also urged voters to back Democrats who are seeking to help the middle class with equal pay for women and a higher minimum wage.”

    If you’re earning minimum wage, unless you live with your parents, you’re not middle class. Raising minimum wage hurts the middle class and and those who live in poverty

    The game isn’t over until the time runs out AND the last play is over.

    That’s the way it works with my son’s middle school team, except it’s 42 points ahead. The high school mercy rule here is when one team is 42 points ahead, the clock doesn’t stop for any reason, no time outs.

    The last time I read the Constitution, it didn’t say “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, except when a religion preach or endorse politics and/or religion…” It doesn’t even say church, but it says religion.

    Forcing ministers, or even owners of other businesses, to violate their religious principles, or interpretation of the Bible, to perform a service is prohibiting the free exercise of religion. To force business owners to perform a service against their religious ideas is saying, basically, “you may exercise your religion except if you don’t do something we want you to do.”

    If the IRS tells a church what a church can and cannot say, they are violating both their freedom of speech and not allowing the free exercise of religion.

    I would be worried about someone taking my card and loading it onto this device. What’s to prevent fraudulent use with the device?

    After reading these I’m glad my father was never deployed when I was a kid. (He served in Vietnam before he met my mother,) It was enough when he was sent to the field for a couple of weeks or TDY for a month. I can’t imagine how things it would have been if he had been deployed. I think people forget how hard war and deployments are on both those in the service and their families. May God bless them all.

    When I was a teenager working at McDonald’s, we had the sandwiches sitting under heat lamps ready to be served and the fries were constantly being cooked. Waits over 3 minutes were unacceptable and around 1 minute were normal. Nowadays the sandwiches aren’t made until the order is placed. It creates less waste, but slower service.

    It’s interesting that they are protesting the formation of a committee to review the curriculum. A curriculum that emphasizes the negative in history and ignores the positive and people like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Also, ignored is the teacher’s union being upset over merit pay (a pay that increased all but 2% of the teachers’ pay) and the union being de-certified by the board. Also, the union representatives are encouraging the teacher’s sick out and the students walk out. (I wonder how many of the students really understand the issues at hand.)

    The real issue is who is in control of our public schools. Are the parents and the school boards in charge? Or are the unions and intellectual elites in charge?

    As much as I hate that he scored against my favorite team, he should not have been penalized. It’s not the first time he’s done this on the field either. The ref was wrong and the other refs should have overturned the call. It should not matter what religion they are, the players should be allowed to give a brief thanks according to the dictates of their beliefs.

    “Public schools have a constitutional obligation to remain neutral toward religion…”

    Doesn’t that mean that the school must play all types of music including both secular and religious, in order to remain neutral? If they only play secular music or only play religious it would mean they are not neutral.

    Don’t worry, if you can’t afford a cell phone the government will give you one.

    The judges are wrong. It is a private business. A public business is a business owned by the public or the government. For example, where I live, the local utility company is owned by the city. That is a public company. A private company that provides public accommodation is not a public company. That’s just an excuse that progressives use to tell private companies what they can and can not do. A private company is a company owned by private citizens or by private companies.
