What was that they were chanting? “Only our hate in our state?”

Whenever we elevate non-rights to the status of actual rights, freedom suffers. When one group of people can declare they have a right to the labor of another, we are not advancing freedom, but oppression.
The state issues licenses based on a set of criteria. If the criteria is not met, you do not get the license. That it would be your right to have such a license violates the premise of what a license is. If everyone has a right to the license, then there is no need for the license. It’s like giving a trophy for just showing up. It’s meaningless.
No one should be able to stop someone from claiming “marriage” to anyone (or thing) one desires. That is the right of free association. If a man loves his lawnmower, let him have a ceremony and declare himself married to it. I don’t care. The state, however, is not required to recognize it with a license. The same goes for any kind of marriage you can think of.

And their rights are not. They are seeking a state-issued license.
Can you name any other state-issued license that any person has a right to possess?

Now, come on. Being shot down is very traumatic. I should know, it happened to me last Tuesday. No wait, maybe that was just someone cutting me off on the freeway. It’s hard to remember which.

Every once and a while, the cause of Liberty still wins here. It’s nice to see. Too bad it’s the exception and not the rule.
Yeah...you pay for faster service while Com ass slows down my speed. Blaze is a busy site and can't tell you how many times it has been disconnected or simply slows down.There's got to be a better solution.
"Looks like we’ve peaked in internet speed."
Not really. I'd like to see 100Mbps connections for internet being standard and cheap.
Unfortunately, to go faster than that, home users will need completely Gigabit network connections.

“Why are we even involved with these people? Both sides are crazy. Lets just reinforce Israel and let the rest sort themselves out.”
Because when they do sort it out, we get 9/11.

It’s all circular reasoning. They get raunchier because the competition got raunchier, who got raunchier because of the competition. No one’s even really trying to do anything different.
The networks claimed they need to push the envelope to keep up with cable, but some of the best performing shows on cable are old network broadcasts from well before this incessant need to continually shock us and remove any shred of empathy.

Last I checked, all of them together weren’t the number one place to buy office supplies (Walmart), so I’m not sure how it would be a monopoly.
"The definition of “oppressive government” is one that forces people to live against their principles when living by them harms no one."
EXACTLY! It's about time American's religious realized that and stopped being so nasty to gay people.
Carlmarksmith Troll, exactly! Now go over to a Muslim country and tell them to stop throwing homoseuals off of tall buildings. Oh right sorry. Your liberal disease riddled mind simply cannot tell the difference between hurt feelings and physical harm. How nasty of me to point the glaringly obvious discrepancy!
'live by our own consciences'
Sure you can, not that discrimination shows you have a conscience mind you. You are not being oppressed when you are being told to obey the same rules as everyone else.
No in-depth psycho-babble analysis of carlmarksmith?
You fail your professional training with but a limited, childish "Your liberal disease riddled mind simply cannot tell the difference ..." attack comment like that.
Come on now Bytheppl4theppl.
I KNOW you can 'play' far better than that.

The most bizarre thing is someone had to listen to Combs to know what jesse said.

If I were him, I’d do what she needed me to do.
If I were her, I’d do what she is doing.

Proof that idiots can be billionaires. It is possibly a requirement.
Yes, AI will destroy us, guns kill people, hammers build houses, and cars drive us around.
Pathetic. There’s no charity or government in the world that doesn’t ask its constituency for money to continue doing what it does.
Government is the worst of these. At least charities are voluntary.

We can stump for the 0 government. There are anarchists out there.
Conservatives want government. No government is not a viable solution. The function of government is the protection of rights. We want to cede only so much of our rights so the government has the authority required to prevent/punish those who would take even more of our rights away.
So, mule, where is your limit? If the government isn’t there to protect the basic right to simply be alive, what rights are more important that the government should protect?

He was the assistant to Federally prosecuted and convicted felon, Congressman Jim Trafficant, who still managed to win over 30% of the vote in his district after being convicted. He’s from the union/mob stronghold of Youngstown, Ohio,
That’s his pedigree.
So it’s no shock to me he takes political expediency over his “faith” or that his views evolved from the sanctity of life to the entitlement of some at the expense of the rights of others.

If anyone knows lying and propaganda, it’s Jesse Ventura.

It was a reward for being a good citizen. The old guy was naughty for disappearing. He didn’t deserve a muffin.
