I hope this was just sarc, because Jeb Bush has “earned” about as much respect in conservative circles as Lindsay Graham or Charley Crist. Jeb’s (and Charley’s for that matter) political careers seem to me more an indicator of the general naivete of the “conservative” voters in Florida than anything that either of them have brought to their state. Florida continues to make sad headlines as Progressives have invaded all walks of life there (Florida public schools are just scary). What is UP with Floridian conservatives that they have been duped by more than one RINO for the Governorship of that state. Really, guys?

There, fixed it for you ;-)

“Cohen’s congressional district has a significant black population, and Cohen is known for defending civil rights and talking about race-related issues on the House floor.”
All while knowing nothing about black history, eh?
Here’s a little sompin’ sompin’ from ol’ Fredrick Douglass:
‘…the three-fifths clause is a downright disability laid upon the slave-holding states, it deprives them of two-fifths of their natural basis of representation…’
Hmm. Almost like Mr. Cohen is just a sophist politician with no basis in fact for his opinions? Almost.

Another willfully ignorant God-hater masquerading as an “atheist”.
He is better versed in your bible than you, research his history. His opinions come from great study over a lifetime, an honorable person would respect them.
Don't ask the question if you can't handle an honest answer.

Yes, and the Tesla is limited to 135MPH the gap closes rapidly on the top end. Electrics make max torque at 0 RPM, so they’re great out of the hole but rapidly lose that torque as RPMs build.

Neither Jalopnik nor Jon Street seem to know much about cars or drag racing. Sheesh! There are WAY better racing stories out there right now…
January 21, 2015 at 1:15am
The Tesla is AWD. The Model S P85D “D” stands for dual motors as in one per axle. and the torque split is designed to launch nearly as fast as a sportbike. Any vehicle under 6000 lbs with nearly 700lb/ft of torque is going to be a bear to launch (visa vis the Hellcat)… UNLESS it has all wheel drive. Not really a fair race. Not to mention the the Tesla Model S P85D is $93K compared to $60K fro the Dodge. They have similar power specs but the comparison ends there.

I disagree with Zappa’s opinions but think Zappa is correct, the Civil Rights Bill guarantees the rights he outlines. HOWEVER, this law violated its own tenets when it provided remedy in this particular case. So this part of bill is rubbish, an unjust law, it never should have been written in. Hopefully this issue will make it to the Supremes and be struck down.
 January 13, 2015 at 11:06am
The problem is now that this law has pitted the rights of one man’s religion against the sexual orientation of another couple. This is an unjust law because it attempts to legislate morality and therefore cannot produce real justice when tested under scrutiny and should be changed or abolished. There should be no law that takes away the right of a private business owner to refuse service to anyone he chooses for any reason (to benefit or detriment of his enterprise).

Ms. Rice IS a fascist with those remarks and the damage she has caused Mr. Phillips for simply offending a LBGT couple. You have no right NOT to be offended America!

Exactly. This whole corridor is benefiting from the shale revolution. We have just seen the first pillar knocked out from under that edifice with crude prices deep-sixed by OPEC. So, the few bright spots in the nation are about to get a smackdown, where will that leave us?

2nd Commandment “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the YHVH (not jesus) your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
The idea that Jesus IS God is a fabrication that can’t be found until the 2nd century along with the “gospel” of John and the book of Acts.
The most pervasive sin that nation of Israel had was idolatry, it persisted almost 1000 years before they were forcibly removed from the land. Are we to believe that this penchant for idolatry in God’s people disappeared in 33CE? Gimme’ a break. The idolatry is right in front of our faces and on our lips every time we kneel at a cross or sing praise songs to anyone but YHVH, our Father, the Creator of the Universe. He alone is worthy of praise, (check out Isaiah 42 sometime).
I'm gonna guess you're either Jewish or the weirdest Christian I've ever seen. In the case of the former I'll say very politely that this is celebrating something unique to Christianity, that it's utterly harmless, and Merry Christmas and a belated Happy Hanukkah. In the case of you being a very very strange Christian, you're missing the ENTIRE POINT of the New Testament.
I don't agree with either of you...
Of course Jesus is God in the flesh...
The Lamb of God if you will...
And what harm does mixing our Saviour with a bunch of paganism....
ie christmas and this worship of mary....
And I believe hurtful to God....
Merry Christmas, twin speed !
Merry Christmas, twinspeedr !

Santa Claus has nothing to do with God. He is a distant remnant of the pagan worship of the Canaanite diety Molech (from the Bible), a bronze statue heated by fire to cherry-red temperatures and used to sacrifice the first born in the pursuit of good fortune. Idolatry and falsehood follows him wherever he goes.
It looks like Via Dolorosa and christos have called you in along with 1God as the "help?"

Consent actually needs to be 3 ways in the case of marriage. God CREATED marriage for HIS purposes, and it was NOT simply for a mankind’s base sexual gratification. God’s word says that a man will leave his parents and cleave to his wife and the two will become one flesh. This is for the purpose that they will be fruitful and multiply. God also speaks about all other relations as abominations in his eyes. For these reasons I’m certain that any of these other relations do NOT have God’s blessing. Therefore homosexual couples can do anything they like because they have freedom of choice, (and should not be discriminated against in civil or tax manners), however, what they have is NOT marriage because God defined it as between a man and a woman long ago. So, you can bet that God does NOT give HIS consent to gay couples, and in my opinion his opinion is the most important one.

Oh an BTW John 8 where the woman was caught in adultery? Yeah Dharius, I don’t know which divinity school ordained you, but that story is universally acknowledged by scholars as a fabrication added hundreds of years after the NT was canonized. It was not a real Gospel story. In fact it is such a slam dunk forgery there are translations of the Bible that leave out John 7:53-8:11 altogether an replace it with a footnote. So, you probably don’t want to hang a lot of your ideas on that one.

The man is right in that Christians don’t understand who Jesus is. However, the verse to look at is from the Gospel of Mathew Chapter 5 verses 17-19. See, Jesus was actually given the name Yeshua (means “Yehovah Saves”) by his mother and he was a rabbinic Jew. Christians seem to think that he advocated a new religion; he did did not. He advocated a return to faith in God, his Law and to repent of their sins. The Christianity we know today is 99% the unique ideas of a man named Paul of Tarsus. Paul was a one man, private revelation from God guy, sounds similar to Mohammed, no? Anyway, the facts are that 65% of the New Testament writings are from Paul as well as 90% of the Christian faith; but most of what he teaches was never taught by Jesus! How is it then that so-called Christians would NEVER follow the faith OF a man they supposedly admire but instead follow a new religion ABOUT the man in question? The answer?: the power and influence of Rome. Yep, Christianity is the world longest running government program, yay! I hope you all enjoy your ancient-style Constantine-Care; “folks, if you like your diety, you can keep your diety, this is why we have Christmas and Easter for all you die hard pagans” Ol’ Constantine and your beloved “church fathers” fully fabricated a new religion to try to stitch a dying empire back together.
It’s time for the faithful to return to the one true God, the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. His name is Yehovah (not The LORD) he alone is God.

Locke as a “precursor” to unsavory philosophies does not indict him as a co-conspirator with those who would twist his thoughts and ideas. This is how mankind works; those with the inspiration inevitably have their work made into an abomination, by those evil men who would place themselves over their fellow man. For example, today we see pervasive neo-Darwinist thought, injected by soul-less peopl who have taken a simple THEORY and turned it into a de-facto law that works to explain almost every system in our civilization. When the reality is that Darwin himself stated in the preface of his “Origin of Species” something to the extent of: ‘if the cell is found to be anything more than a simple bag of protoplasm, my theory must be considered false’. So, don’t try to lump Locke in with the dolts that would use his revolutionary ideas thought to their own ends. Locke’s ideas without God’s authority and law, ends in badly. This is more along the lines of what I would assert in this case.

Given Hamas’ storied history of concocting evidence against Israel, the same thought crossed my mind. However, we mustn’t point fingers until actual evidence is is found. Otherwise we are no better than the lying Hamas thugs.

Armed and Grumpy are correct. The rest of you are not. Potatoes are tasty, but are little more than some carbs/starch and tiny amounts of Vitamin C unless you eat the skins to get double or more of protein, unsaturated fats, potassium, fiber and iron. Same with apples and plums. DON’T PEEL your fruits and vegetables, wash them well and eat them !!!
