    Why would you pick a picture that shows an excited man to symbolize a neutral gender bathroom?

    Affirmative action is policies that provide equal access to education for those groups that have been historically excluded or underrepresented. I don’t see how this is even comparable. If affirmative action was used during this race, you would have seen just as many white, black, Hispanic, Asian, male, female and transgender 1st place winners. How is this “celebrating mediocrity”? Is 1st, 2nd and 3rd superior and worthy of celebration, while 4th or below is just “mediocrity” and should in no way be recognized in a positive manner? Are we that heartless today? In the Olympics, we should shun and ridicule the 4th place runner, because he/she finished .01 second behind 3rd place? Is it victimhood to give someone a “participation” ribbon for having “participated” in a race? Did she “participate”? Did she win? Did she get a ribbon for winning, when she didn’t win? Being the daughter of a highly competitive football player, don’t you think she knows the difference between a 1st place ribbon and a “participation” ribbon? I know that this rhetoric (2nd is just the first loser,celebrating mediocrity…) is used to make us feel good about our self as a parent, “look at me, I’m raising tough kids in a soft world. They need to cry. They need to know that they suck once in a while. It makes them better in the long run.”

    lockandload: I can’t understand where your “by that logic” even relates to your “there shouldn’t be grades in school”. If you follow the logic of getting a paycheck for your job performance, that is exactly why there are grades in school. It’s not an A for the best student in the school and the rest don’t get a grade. You get graded on your effort and how you perform. Just like your job, just like the race. This girl participated and was graded accordingly. Did she get an A? No. If she had not attend school, should she get a grade? No. This is not a liberal way of thinking, this is how the world works. I’m still trying to figure out how getting paid based on your job performance is even comparable to your claim that no one in school should get a grade (that is liberal thinking). This is going to keep me up tonight trying to figure out how anyone can draw that conclusion. hmm, baffling.

    See, you just want to know how much he really makes. This is for self gratification, not anything to do with being qualified to be president. There are plenty of places to look and see if he is a great business man, as he claims. His taxes are not one of them. I can be the best business man in the world and a recession could make my taxes look like a loser, because my taxes are based on money earned, deductions and tax rate. They have nothing to do with how I work with a team, how I delegate responsibility, how I hire or fire employees, how I budget… A tax form is just a stupid political tool to get the poor to support the “least wealthy” politician.

    Don’t you think the IRS would recommend prosecution if there was any fraud or illegal stuff on his returns? The only reason people want to see them is to see how much he has earned (so they can bash him form being a 1%er, which does not disqualify him from being president), how much he has or has not given to charity (something that does not disqualify him from being president), where his income has come from (which doesn’t always mean that’s where the money came from, ie Clinton Global Initiative, Speaking fees…). Nothing on his tax return would disqualify him from being president, unless fraud was found and he was convicted of a crime. That is for the IRS to figure out, not the American people. Finally, where in the Constitution when giving the guidelines for who is qualified to be President, does it state that tax returns must be released for public scrutiny? Neither does it require medical records to be released. Birth certificate is another story, because it is how you prove you were born a US citizen and that you meet the age criteria.

    Does anyone really care about these tax returns? If they were doing something illegal that showed up in their tax return, the IRS should be all over it. When they get indicted for tax fraud, then there is something to look at. You know that the IRS is in the Democrats back pocket and if they had any dirt from the tax returns, they would be exposing it. Get over it, Grow up, move on.

    Sovereignsoul: If you were trying to be sarcastic in your initial response as well as your second response, maybe you should do more reading on Johnathan Swift, because you didn’t do it very well.

    makingout: Did this girl do NOTHING? NO, she ran in an event, she PARTICIPATED. I agree that those at the VA that just stay out of trouble, should not be getting bonuses (ie 1st place ribbons), but should we withhold their paycheck entirely? NO, they did do something, even if it was just show up every day and answer the phone, or file paperwork, or clean the floors, or make food for the cafeteria. Because they did not excel above and beyond, they get their PARTICIPATION pay. If they had gone above and beyond and made a difference, then you are justified to give them a bonus (ie 1st place ribbon). Would you go back to work if your boss said, “if you work harder than everyone else I will pay you $1million this year, but if you come in 2nd or below, you get nothing. Would you work there? HECK NO!!! See, you are getting a participation ribbon every day you work, that is why you keep going back to work. Some day, you might get a bonus, then you may really step up your game. EBT cards are not even a participation ribbon, because they have done nothing to earn it. There is the problem, getting something for nothing. This girl ran, she did something. She did not sit on the sideline and then ask to be rewarded for doing nothing, she did something. It’s just unfortunate that you are like her dad and are trying to shoot her down for having done something, but not to your expectations, therefore, she is a loser and should not be acknowledged in any way.

    “awesome dad”?

    An awesome dad would have recognized that his little girl was showing him something that she was proud of. An awesome dad would have asked one simple question to that little girl, “Why did you get that?” Why are we all assuming that this little girl did not do anything to deserve this recognition. What if her answer was, “Dad I ran as hard as I could. I wanted to give up, because I wasn’t going to win, but I didn’t quit. I stuck with it. See, I got this because I stuck with it.”

    No, this awesome dad had an ego that said, if it aint #1, you don’t deserve it.

    My regards to this little girl.

    Armyof7- Of course he would not turn down the Bronze medal if he was awarded it, but he sure sounds like a macho man and builds up his ego by saying he would.

    Simple questions:

    Did this girl “participate” in the event?
    Did she win 1st, 2nd or 3rd?
    Did the ribbon she was awarded agree with where she finished in the event?
    What is the problem?

    Answers:
    Yes
    No
    Yes
    People’s egos

    amendii- Did this girl sit and watch the others run to EARN her ribbon? Or did she go out there and run in a competition to EARN that ribbon? She DID EARN it. In your job, do you get paid the most? If not, why do you even collect a paycheck? If you don’t earn the most, you shouldn’t get anything, that will teach you to work harder.

    You say, “It is up to the friends of the child to tell that they tried their hardest”. Are you serious, this is not the role of a parent too? I feel for your children. “Sorry son, as a parent I have to tell you that you suck and I am disappointed in your dismal performance. If you want any encouragement, go talk to your friends, that’s their job.” Classy!!!

  • [-14] May 13, 2016 at 11:25am

    No, everyone needs a dad that would have taken that participation ribbon and said, “girl, I am proud of you for trying your hardest, this ribbon shows that you tried. I want you to keep trying. Because when we keep trying you get better and better. Eventually you can be the best. So keep trying harder and harder each time. You rock, girl”.

    Not, “Girl, you suck, this ribbon is garbage. If it doesn’t have a 1 on it, just give it back. Sorry, you suck. See that girl with the 1 on her ribbon? She is awesome. You should be like her.”

    “Winning isn’t everything but wanting to win is.” – Vince Lombardi
    Participation ribbons, 3rd place, 2nd place may not be a “winner”, but the recognition will at least give them the want to continue trying to get #1.
    All these people saying it’s 1st or nothing, are just trying to portray a “holier than thou” attitude to boost their egos that have failed in some way. What is wrong with giving praise and encouragement to those who don’t come in 1st? Are you afraid it will take away from your glory? By all means, celebrate the winner, but don’t kick the rest to the curb in doing so. Put your ego away. Grow up!!!

    What is the problem with a participation ribbon? Honestly! I would have an issue if every kid, including 1st, 2nd and 3rd place only got a participation ribbon. But 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons were given out. If your kid thinks a participation ribbon is as good as a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place ribbon, maybe you have failed as a parent to teach your kid. We all accept participation ribbons at some point in our lives. When Chick-Fil-A gives you a free chicken sandwich for dressing up like a cow, everyone gets the same size sandwich, no matter who has the better costume. When you go to the fair and spin the wheel at the booth, everyone wins, even if it is only a tootsie roll. Every person that has posted here has happily and willfully accepted a participation ribbon at some point in their life. So get over it. Once again, we have an issue as soon as every space on the spinner says “tootsie roll”, why spin. But as long as there is the possibility of hitting the grand prize, a little token for your effort is always accepted.

    This is the problem with the world, they think the answer to all their problems is to just give in to their desires and “feelings”. NO, you have to face your problems head on, even if they hurt your feelings. Be God fearing and learn WWJD (What Would Jesus Do). God is the answer to solving your problems, not the desires of man. If you were born with male parts, you are a male, no matter how you “feel”. God would have made you a female if you were supposed to be a female. God does not make mistakes. Your job is to figure out why you feel the way you do and ask God to help you fix it or come to grips with it. Satan is the one that wants you to act on your “feelings”. Have you noticed that we no longer have genders of male or female, now it depends on how you “feel” that day. Funny how we can allow a man to enter a female bathroom based on how he “feels”, yet a Christian worker cannot choose to sign or not sign a marriage license based on their “feelings”. Satan is the King of Hypocrisy!!!!

    Would it be interesting to see his taxes? Of course. Is it necessary? NO. Is it disqualifying if he does not? Well, I’m still looking thru the Constitution that sets the guidelines for who can be president, but still can’t find anything about releasing your tax records.

    See Rapture, this is were you fail to understand the full Mormon doctrine and only preach YOUR partial truth. By failing to preach the full truth you have become a deceiver. And whether you think Lucifer is Christ’s brother or not, we know who is the deceiver out of those two. Let me ask you this, you say we believe Christ is a created being, yet the scriptures say He is eternal. Did Christ exist with a body of flesh and blood before He emerged from the womb of Mary? Do Mormons believe that life (not earthly/physical life) existed before we were born on this earth? Do they believe this LIFE existed for 2 years, 10 years, 1000 years, 10,000 years prior to birth, or our physical creations? You fail to understand that you can have something that has existed from the beginning, yet may be added upon. I have heard you explain this yourself on your YouTube channel. God is like the sun outside, Christ is the ray of sun that has come thru the window, but wrapped in flesh. Christ has always existed in the essence of God, yet God took some of that essence and created a spirit, which then was placed into a physically created body of flesh and blood. See He always existed, but was created from what has always existed. Just as you have always existed and will continue to exist after this life. Will you exist then as you do now? No, changes will occur, but that does not take away from you having existed prior. The Mormons be live in the Great I AM of the scriptures.

    Rapture: I totally agree with you! I will see the resurrection. As for me being deceived, that is merely YOUR OPINION, not based on any fact that you can substantiate. And thank you for your prayers, it is always nice to know you are loved.

  • May 6, 2016 at 3:00pm

    Rapture: Maybe I have to explain this again, it is YOUR INTERPRETATION of Jesus Christ that is different. The Jesus Christ I believe in as a Mormon is exactly the same as the one described in the scriptures. I can’t be more clear. Just because YOU THINK the Jesus Christ I believe in is different than the one in the scriptures, does no make it true. I don’t listen to the interpretations of man, I listen to the Holy Ghost that God has provided to confirm what I have learned as true or not. Right now, the Holy Ghost has confirmed that your interpretation is wrong. Sorry :(
