    In my city in Colorado, the sidewalk in front of your house belong to you, are your responsibility, and are a public easement to remain open to the public. You are required to remove snow from them within 24 hours.

    Great game! Both teams deserved to win, of course, only one could come out on top in the end. The majority of the players played they way we teach our kids: play your best until the final whistle. The game could have gone either way. I look forward to watching both teams next season. Until then, there’s the baseball season that starts in only a couple of months. Go Red Sox!

    Great game. (Even better that my Patriots won.) It was the way all Superbowl games should be, contested all the way to the final minute.

    God cares about us. We care about football. Therefore, God cares about football, at least on how it affects us and our relationships with Him and with one another.

    I’ve a crazy idea. Why don’t we let Alaskans decide how Alaska lands should be managed?

    If the Colorado Civil Rights Commission is consistent, this bakery will lose. I disagreed with the Commission’s decision about the other bakery and I disagree that this bakery should be forced to make a cake that violates their conscience.

    The problem is the government believes it runs the business. A private business is a business owned by a private individual or by private individuals. When one does business with a business, one contracts with the business for a product and/or services. The government should not be involved unless there is a violation with that contract. There’s no violation if one party or the other refuses to enter into that contract. If there’s discrimination that one feels is unjust, they are free to inform everyone about that discrimination. If most people agree it’s unjust, they’ll not do business with that company and the company will go out of business. For the government to force a business to serve anyone is to dictate who people may or may not do business with. It’s the same as telling people they may not do business with Jews, but must do business with the government sponsored business. Should we force catering business owned by a homosexual couple to cater a West Boro Baptist anti-gay dinner?

    They seem to be more suggestions than commandments:
    1. Change according to the way whatever you accept as evidence changes.
    2. Try to learn the truth.
    3. Science as we know it is god.
    4. You can do whatever you want with your body.
    5. Reject God.
    6. Try to take responsibility and remember actions have consequences.
    7. Try to treat others how you think they should be treated.
    8. Try to think about others.
    9. Live however you think is right.
    10.Leave the world a better place than you found it.

    “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.

    “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.
