    Or, perhaps the left is now saying that there is no such thing as a ‘mother’.

    Ummm, I quit getting the Dallas Morning News over ten years ago because I already was tired of being told how to think by every headline. Who ever wrote the headline to this article is simply listening to the wrong people.

    This quote makes me laugh… sadly… inside, “…at odds with nearly every GOP ideal this newspaper holds dear…” I call this the missing straw man argument. They don’t even have the decency to use a real straw man. To bring this quote into reality you would have to add “if we had any GOP ideals to hold dear…”

    libertarians are ‘self marginalizing’.

    See, you’re illustrating a difference between left and right thinking. The left believes that it should compel others to think as the left believes. So, the left naturally thinks the right is doing the same thing; compelling others to think as the right believes. In this case, for instance, you think people on the right have this ‘rule’ about homosexuality and that it’s willing to compel others to believe in the rule too.

    You have missed an important point about the right; it’s not interested in answering your question. Why would I find you a scripture that you could find for yourself? Your paragraph after that is a straw man. See all the Christians wagging their fingers and entering your bedrooms. That’s not Christian teaching. Perhaps I should ask you, “show me a scripture where Jesus tells his followers to wag fingers and enter bedrooms”

    Ummm, Ok. Not sure if serious…

    Wait, wait, wait; You have to “Challenge” Christians to love their neighbor? Who would have thought?

    So, you’re suggesting that if an evil person agrees with you then there’s something wrong with you? I think you’re a little too focused on how things look. Let me point out that is a leftist strategy for manipulating people in to thinking like they want.I don’t think you’re comments will cause anyone to be rethinking what they’re going to do or who they support.

    So, then, there isn’t any difference between the two candidates personally. Leaving the difference to be one will make you feel bad and the other will take a way your feelings…

    Actually, the twist is that while CNN and the MSM are trying to make it look like Hillary is going to win, Glenn and the establishment is trying to make it look like Trump is going to lose. Somehow favoring the idea that it’s better to say I told you so rather than win and then use your influence to press for your ideas.

    We’ve been doing it your way and it gave us 8 years of Bush and two, swallow your pride and just vote, failures. I think if Trump does only one thing it should be to obliterate the establishment.

    On OAN they were showing the documents and writings where Khan supports Shariah. He writes for a publication in Saudi Arabia and has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Ted is done. I voted for him in the special election that got him nominated as the republican candidate for the senate seat he holds. Then I voted for him in the general. Then I voted for him in the primary for president. I’m looking for someone else to vote for next time.

    I stopped my subscription to the local newspaper because I was tired of the subtle and not so subtle manipulative headlines that fill the front pages. “Ice pack lowest in years, hints at environmental disaster” stuff like that on every social and political issue. It has a certain presumptive arrogance that what they’re saying is right and that everyone should think like they do.

    Like the headline of this article, meant for one thing, manipulate peoples thinking. This is not news, this is distraction. Every poll within the party shows that the number of people who want to stop Trump is small. But here’s an article designed to make it appear that Trump supporters are somehow so evil that you cannot possible support him.

    For anyone who has read “The forth turning” you know that we’re in the period of time where the worst crisis’ catalyze (If you haven’t read it ask yourself why there’s a crisis that is so terrible that we may or may not come out of it about every 80 years). As soon as enough good people realize that ‘these guys really are going to mess this up’ then those good people will start to act. Could the thing that makes us realize this be Trump having the nomination taken away from him? It will be for many.

    The left says conservatives are dangerous because they can, the right says leftists are dangerous because they are.

    I call the Libertarian party the self marginalizing party. See article for exhibit A. duh.

    The principle involved here is that when when a society rejects morality it goes crazy. I know, you were expecting me to say ‘becomes immoral’ but that doesn’t really express it. There isn’t really a moral issue with the fact that those who have rejected Gods morality can’t even figure out where to go to the bathroom.

    Not sure I’m getting what’s going on here. Trump says this guy is a nasty guy, guy shows he’s nasty by quoting scripture that imply’s Trump is Jezebel, then all these comments say, “see, trump is against Christians”. What am I missing…

    I know there are too many voices and it’s easy to only hear the ones we want to hear but the explanation for the ‘rigged’ commentary is that the rules were changed in 3 states and a major way after Trump entered the race. He entered in June and the rules were changed in August/September in Florida, Wyoming and Colorado (they couldn’t have known that all the establishment candidates would be gone by now). Wyoming and Colorado was seemingly designed to help establishment candidates by reducing the effect of the voters desire and increasing the affect of the parties desire. In Florida, the rules were changed to allow a 50 percent winner to get all the delegates. Is it that far out to see this was designed to help Jeb Bush?

    So, to me the ‘rigged’ part is true, the rules can be changed for specific candidates benefit after the race has begun.

    So, the whole “I’m not going to ruin a mans life” thing was just for show! Who would have thought.

    I liked this comment, “None of the animals was forced to take part, she said.” At least they were concerned with the feelings of the animals. The lawyers might want them to add a statement on their brochures, “No animals were harmed in the making of these paintings”

    I don’t mind calling these ‘paintings by animals’ but to call it an “Artshow” is a little much. Nothing about what an animal does to a canvass is art. Art is “the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.”

    This is the influence of the left ruining what it touches. If you want something ruined then just get the left to become interested in it. If you ask a leftist they’ll say these paintings are appealing and they are beautiful and significant. But my question would be, what aesthetic principles are at work?

    These paintings are not beautiful, they are not expression or quality and there are no aesthetic principles involved in their making. It’s not art. However, it is interesting and I might buy one if I thought that the charity was legitimate. But it’s not going to be displayed with any of my real art.
