    And you’d think the feminist and gay factions of that side would raise a stink about that…

    I just went there, and the headline just says WTF, GOP?

    You’d probably get complaints that the candidates would have to go through all the states in a shorter time, or the usual whinybutt crap from IA/NH about “I always get to go first!!!” or some other excuse.
    I was more in favor of 4-10 weeks of primary elections, with 5-12 states grouped together and the groups rotated every pres. election. So every once in a while, Ohio WOULD be able to vote first.

    So maybe he’s not really afraid of Megyn, but that’s how the media’s gonna spin it.

    As much as I would like to think “Trump’s done for NOW!”, the number of times people have claimed this already since he announced his candidacy is probably in the triple digits at this point.

    Do we really need to tolerate these guys any longer? We’re no longer dependent on them for oil, and they’re just as bad as Iran in denouncing us as well as Israel. Maybe we can embargo their oil for a change… and if oil prices go up enough to keep domestic production viable (though not too much, I’m happy with $2.50/gallon gas myself), double win for us.

    Is the Law Of Nations the law of the land? Nope. Neither are any of the Federalist Papers. Only the Constitution of the United States, which does give Congress the power to define immigration and naturalization. And the Naturalization Act of 1790, passed by Congress, says Cruz qualifies.

    If Cruz wins almost every state and a vast majority of the delegates, and at the convention, suddenly the delegations switch to nominating Jeb or Kasich against the will of the people, how could there NOT be a riot? I’m sure GOP conventioneers are more well-behaved, but I’m wondering if there might be a repeat of Chicago ’68…

    “I have reached the point where I will vote for ANYONE, even an establishment candidate (I can’t believe I’m saying this) if it means denying Trump the nomination.”

    And that is precisely what Team Jeb! hopes will happen on a larger scale.

    Although I would prefer Rand, I think Cruz has a better chance to win… now if we could only get the “Anyone But Trump” voters to agree.

    Um… because impeachment proceedings have to start in the House?

    Hoppy: Then the public would have to deal with that fact when casting a vote for Jim Bob Assad. Wouldn’t we be as skeptical towards someone who was an illegitimate son of Timothy McVeigh or some other American-born lunatic?

    When my kids are old enough, I will hammer this sentence into their brains and hope they will repeat it if – heaven forbid – they ever get in trouble with the law.
    “I plead the fifth and I will not answer any questions without my attorney present.”
    And no matter how much they want to get out of jail and back home, NEVER EVER confess to something they did not do.
    There is no worse fear I have than the fear of losing my freedom because I got framed or swindled by the authorities… especially those authorities whose re-election hinges on how “tough on crime” they appear to their constituents.

    Cheaper to just abandon it, I guess. Same thing with that Six Flags park.

    Or find a smaller town about an hour away that’s showing the film. I happened to be in College Station on opening weekend, and the ticket prices at their theaters were pretty much half of what I usually find in DFW. I only paid $7 for a 3-D showing.

    I liked the movie despite the obvious rehashing of plot points. I’m hoping the next film doesn’t mimic Empire Strikes Back in a similar fashion. I also hope Poe Dameron gets some more character development, too… he seemed more like a second-tier character than part of the supposed group.

    Where’ve YOU been the past few years? These days, big film franchises don’t even wait for results before making the sequels… sometimes the sequel starts filming right after the first one is wrapped up.

    “The Biblical scene of the newly born Jesus Christ lying in a manger in Bethlehem lies at the very heart of the Christian faith.”
    Um, aren’t we focusing on the wrong thing here? Jesus Himself, and His love, and His great commandments, are indeed the heart of Christianity. Take away baby Jesus and that thing is just a feeding trough. And those things were still quite common in the late 1700′s.
    If there was some obscene imagery in that display then I would agree it would be in violation. But this is an act of bullying on the Governor’s part. Either showcase a diversity of religions (even the practice of atheism) or put up nothing at all.
    I’ve a feeling that nothing will be done at the judicial level before Christmas, though. Gotta love that one-party rule!

    Just playing devil’s advocate here… wouldn’t that praying aloud at lunch go against Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:5-6?

    I do agree you shouldn’t have permission to pray, though. Those leftists love tightening that noose.

    I don’t fault places that are expected to have an atmosphere of quiet (i.e. movie theaters, libraries, bookstores) having policies to remove noisy children. But that shouldn’t be expected on an airplane. Some people (and families) do need to be at a certain place within a certain amount of time, and driving just won’t cut it. And getting airfare refunded is a near-impossible and aggravating task in itself.

    Believe me, I’ve been there, having to sit near a young kid having a meltdown, and while it can be irritating, I don’t get annoyed at the parents that have tried every option to quiet their kid. What I DO get annoyed at are those parents that’ll just shrug their shoulders and go “what can you do?” or that are one of those “that’s how she’s expressing herself and I shouldn’t interfere with that” types.

    I do have two kids of my own, and I am infinitely grateful and lucky that I’ve only had to take care of just a handful of noisy tantrum incidents in public.

    The way I see it…

    If you’re taking the hormone pills, undergoing therapy, and are planning to do or have done the reassignment surgery, then you can call yourself transgender.

    Otherwise, if you’re just dressing like the opposite sex and that’s how you “identify yourself”, you’re not transgender, just a transvestite. And you have no business being in the opposite sex’s restrooms.

    I predict it’s only going to take one incident of a rape in the ladies’ room, by a guy who claimed to identify as female, for the support for this cause to drop like a brick.
