    It would be funny if it weren’t so disgusting.

    The State of Kentucky, and the other 49, should be fighting this. Not because of gay marriage, but because the Supreme Court does not have authority to make laws at all. They, themselves, acted above the law to legalize gay marriage in the first place.

    Her objections and legal fight should be based on that – the unconstitutional use of Legislative power by SCOTUS and unconstitutional usurpation of State authority by the Federal government.

    I agree she has no religious basis for refusing to do her job. If she has a religious problem, resign and work to fix the broken law. But the law is illegal, so she should be fighting it on the grounds that it is illegal.

    We don’t know if she was pulled over for some probable cause or in an illegally legal DUI check point. If it was a checkpoint, they can’t give her a DUI without proof she’s drunk. The only thin they can do without a conviction and no probable cause is suspend her license. (It should be nothing, but for some reason we allow the state to penalize us for doing nothing wrong.)

    Socialism is just a new wrapper to the oldest form of government known to man. When Western Culture exploded into Liberty loving, “nobility” restricting self-government , the old lords and tyrants had to find a new way to convince people to be subjected under their thumbs. People weren’t buying the old “God ordained me as better than you” lies the “nobility” had been using for eons to assert their rule anymore, so those who would rule others absolutely had to find a new tune to sing to convince people of their inherent superiority.

    Enter Socialism. As twisted and backwards as any theory of governance ever devised by man, they are actually convincing people to go out and get their tyrants back. What is the greatest evil facing man today? Socialism. At least with the terrorists, we know whom to shoot.

    Football is not all that interesting a thing to report on at all. There’s nothing to really ask or to say during the 10 second interview with a coach heading to the half-time locker room. The only thing of any real journalistic interest would be a straight answer to the first question, which Harbaugh understandably did not want to give an answer to.

    The other fluff they always ask is just a game they play to get paid. Everyone who knows football knows both the questions and the answers before they are asked, yet the fans still eagerly pay a lot of money every week to hear it. Harbaugh didn’t play the game by the rules here, thus is a jerk.

    I agree that it requires significantly less creativity to do what the likes of MST3K does, but that does not invalidate it as a form of legitimate criticism and entertainment in its own right.

    “Creation of a sociopath”

    No. Sociopaths are what we are creating today in our progressive public school system. This kid is learning to be a psychopath.

    I don’t understand recessions at all. I used to think I did, but for the last 10 years we’ve had and recovered from multiple recessions, but my personal finances, buying power, employ-ability, etc has remained virtually unchanged.

    What’s it mean when we can’t tell the difference between “recession” and “normal” economies?

    At the end of it all, Mod, you are saying because some women are raped, all women must be allowed to murder their children. It’s rather like saying, that because some people kill in self-defense, all must be allowed to kill indiscriminately.

    And that’s setting aside the fact that the child is innocent of her father’s crimes.

    You just typed, “they aren’t being forced to participate, they just have to participate.”

  • [47] August 24, 2015 at 2:36pm

    Unlike the very open acts of aggression anyone who even declines to participate in a gay life event receive. We aren’t even allowed to do nothing at all. We must materially support the gay lifestyle or be fined into destitution.

    The answer to China’s, and everyone else’s economic problems, is not government stimulus. China’s economy is proof the government is not the answer. If it were, why are the areas where China deregulated the areas of massive economic growth in China?

    If the government leaves people alone, they will flourish – both economically and personally. There’s no greater evidence of that than China of the last 20 years, but even China doesn’t seem to see it. Well, they see it, they, like all dictators and dictator-wannabees, just don’t want to lose the power and control.

    The government’s only legitimate place in the market is to punish fraud in a way that practicing it is not profitable (thereby preventing it in as many situations as possible). The government should need a compelling reason to say, “No,” not a compelling reason to say, “Yes.”

    If we practiced these principles, we really could eliminate poverty and discrimination as we know them today.

    WhoIs – you don’t seem to understand what secular means. You seem to think secular is atheism. It is not. Secular and Religious are not in opposition with each other. Atheism is a religious point of view and is not secular.

    Secular pertains to the things of Earth. Divine (not religious) pertains to the things of Heaven. Religions, including Atheism (and, as a better description to what you espouse, anti-theism), pertain to both.

    We have a secular government because our (Christian) founders didn’t want the government to define the tenets of any one person’s religion. It was not to keep religion out of public (that is impossible), but merely to prevent government from using its force to establish one religion at the exclusion of all others.

    The only religion I see being excluded form public is Christianity. The only one I see being favored is atheism. I also don’t see this same fervor for anti-theism in Muslim communities in the USA. Why is that?

    And basing climate change on 130 years worth of data is like saying an entire day’s weather can be accurately measured by cataloging any single second of it.

    Planes get struck by lightning all the time. If they couldn’t handle it, we’d have given up on the practice now as way too dangerous.

    He did the exact opposite of what he promised he’d do when elected. Reminds me most of FDR and Wilson.

    Only an attempt by the Greeks to actually live within their means is appropriate. Something they probably were forced to realize when they took power a few months ago.

    So Subway should keep Fogle as their spokesman so long as they stipulate none of the money they give him be used to rape children?

    The park should at least be some-what reflective of the community it serves, but other than that, that is what freedom of religion means. Ain’t Christian-founded individual rights grand?

    Congratulations, you have demonstrated knowledge of the First Amendment greater than that of the Americans for Separation of Church and State.

  • [5] August 20, 2015 at 1:11pm

    “Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a First Amendment watchdog”

    Were that true, should they not first be able to demonstrate even basic knowledge of what the First Amendment protects? They clearly do not understand the establishment clause, so how can they watch over it?

    I’m no economist, but this smells of desperation to me. China must maintain its exports or it will crumble. It’s willing to go to the brink of collapse to avert an all-out collapse.

    China’s economy is in straights more dire than our own. Why doesn’t China exert more authority over us when it owns so much of our debt? Because it can’t. China knows that if we go down, China goes down with us.

    At least the chick earlier had barker skin. This man is as white as any man I have ever seen. How would anyone think otherwise?

    And, on top of that, why does it matter to a bunch of people who are supposed to be devoid of any kind of racism?

    I don’t care, and I’m one of those racist conservatives.
