I support gun owners 100%. However, just like the Hobby Lobby issue, I also support the choice of a company to make their own policies. If they say you can’t carry a gun, then you can’t carry a gun. It is their right to run THEIR business the way they wish. Period!
Yes, me too. We have two issues here, gun control and private enterprise. If a private school, business, home, etc. says "No guns allowed", then I have to respect that. I wish guns were allowed everywhere, but I'm not going to infringe on a private entity's right to make that choice....otherwise how are we better than the liberals? Ultimately, the bottom-line issue for any true conservative/liberatarian is LIBERTY. Target is making the wrong choice here, but let the individual parties decide where they spend their money.
So does that include hiring criteria?

I don’t know. It seems ridiculous walking into a restaurant with a big gun strapped to your back. Really? This is the gun you would normally carry? It seems to me that they are looking for negative reactions. I’m 100% behind the 2nd amendment. However, If I saw a guy walk into a store with a large gun (I’m a gun idiot, can’t give names) I would be very wary. However, if I saw a guy with a holstered pistol, I wouldn’t think anything of it. They just want publicity and I’m not sure if they are doing the 2nd amendment any favors.
Because of illogical Texas law, they did not have the option to legally open carry a sidearm instead of a longarm.

6 years old and he already knows he wants to b e a girl! Seriously? these parents should be looked at. Clearly this is their issue. A boy playing with girl things at 6 is no big deal. I think it’s the parents that decided who he was and pushed him into this. this poor child will have a very confusing and troubling teenage years. Shame on them!

Boy + testosterone + sports = Shoving, pushing, fighting, backtalk
No real shocking moment here. Parents remained in there seats where they belonged and the coaches handled the situation perfectly. Kid should apologize to his opponent, both coaches and his team. A good parent knows this and would demand it of him anyway.

I’m finding it hard to feel sorry for the woman who lost her life. Sounds cold and I usually don’t think this way. Am I the only one? She chose to end a viable life and in return it ended her life too. seems fitting. Worse, she was a teacher. Not someone I would want teaching my kids. Her baby was 33 weeks. she felt that child kicking her for a little while. Why not just wait 7 more weeks and give it up for adoption? I feel no remorse for her.
I can never understand why she couldn't wait a bit longer and give her baby up. At 33 weeks that baby was viable and definitely murdered. Feeling her baby move and she still killed it willingly? Wow, makes me sick to my stomach. Whatever she and her husband were thinking, they paid a much bigger price than they expected. Like you, I feel no sorrow for her, and I wish her husband, partner, whatever, could never have another child.
Although I share some of your sentiment, I believe that the woman who died during the abortion was most likely misled, misinformed and generally ignorant about the ramifications of what she was doing, thanks to the incessant brainwashing from the left. Abortion is seen as a sacrament to these people, so revealing the potential side effects (death included) would make those seeking one think more than twice. I for one would love to see the "informed consent" form women have to sign in order to get an abortion - I bet a dollar that it is less explicit than the one I had to sign in order to get a root canal.
there is no "mis-informed"
She is an adult. An adult that has seen real life babies, she knew what it means to abort it. They all do, not matter that they try and call it a fetus, Zygot or other such term to try and hide the fact it is a baby.

You guys are too funny! This wasn’t fake. I will give it to the kid. He continued with the show despite being knocked around. Takes guts!

I love Facebook. I check it constantly. I love sharing my life with people and learning about theirs. It’s something you either like or you don’t. What I don’t understand is when people get onto the site then complain about lack of privacy. My page will be bombarded with posts telling me how to protect my privacy. I’m good. If I wanted to protect it, I’d cancel my account. I just don’t get it. First off, this is a social site. It’s something meant to be shared. That is the whole point. Second, if you don’t like it, don’t use it. It is that simple.

In my opinion, the letter content doesn’t matter. What matters is the fact that he would post this for everyone to see. This is an issue between dad and son. Not dad, son and the world. Although I think the father will regret disowning his son, I think posting this letter online is despicable! Shame on him for doing this. he is no better than the father he wishes to humiliate!
Incorrect, because of the rampant homosexual bigotry in the USA such action on the part of the gay son is needed in order to wake up this country to the true extent of the bigotry.
As you will notice, the majority of the posters can only say (basically) - homosexuality is a sin and a choice. The are incorrect on both counts. Just like so many religious people believe that they are the "Moral, Majority", when in fact, they are neither 'Moral' nor are they in the "Majority".

I knew it! That is the number 1 reason why I won’t use reusable bags. Nice to see it confirmed. But honestly though, it’s just common sense.

I’m confused? Wasn’t this supposed to be an anti-bullying program? Wasn’t that the topic? I guess not since he decided to perform his own act of bullying. you know, it’s bad enough when kids bully each other, but when an adult bullies kids it’s even worse. He is a despicable human being!

In my lifetime I have know a handful of people who consider themselves atheist. They are mild manner people who don’t give a darn whether or not you yourself believe or not. They just go about their lives and only bring it up when asked.
This group are a bunch of “look at me!” idiots who don’t deserve a moment of our time!

I find it rather odd that he wanted to take a newborn baby out to get fresh air. There is something wrong with that. Did the mother know he was doing this? Probably not or he’d have his head smacked for it.
I’ve been using Dogpile since it came out. It is a way better search engine than Google. They were the first to come up with the “are you looking for?” section that narrows down your search. Dogpile ison my toolbar. Google is nowhere in sight!

What irks me is he was listing what she had and saying that she seemed to have met the guideline. GUIDELINE!!! The government has no right setting a guideline of how we feed our children. This is government control at it’s best and they talked about a “guideline”. That makes me mad!!! If I want to send my child to school with a peanut butter and fluff sandwich, chips, cookies and soda, that is my choice!

I don’t get the offense. It depicts Indians as strong warriors. What’s wrong with that? Seems to me that they are looking for any reason to be mad. It’s sad actually.
It's amazing isn't it!??! We've become so politically correct that we can't depict someone in a favorable light, because it's demeaning??? Good grief.
let's see-they have FSU Seminoles, the Illini of Illinois, Iowa State Hawkeyes, etc...and if we want to get crazy how about the Cowboys, the Indians, Redskins, the Fighting Irish, the Braves, the Ragin' Cajuns,....
STOP THE INSANITY!
Political correctness ruins EVERYTHING!
It always was curious to me why it was a insult towards Indians to use their name.
Why wasn't it an honor?
Remember the Stanford "Indians"?
They (progressives/liberals) were instituting their agenda, and to do that, they had to define the conversation.
You don't get the offense? Come on! I'm of Scandinavian extraction and I certainly wouldn't let anyone call a team the "Vikings"
*** end sarcasm ***
Don't forget the Celtics, the Chiefs, the Blackhawks, the Patriots, the 76ers, the 49ers, the Dodgers, etc, etc, etc.
I mean, we're talking about ALL groups of people right? Not just Indians.
The Illini were actually forced to lose their mascot and logo. They didn't have to change their name because the Illini isn't a real tribe, but now the team name just makes it sound like people in Illinois like to fight. So idiotic. They caved to the pressure a lot easier, probably because they had a lot more at stake with being a power conference team that has a lot of their teams in post season play every year.
Lois Amsterdam, University Ombudsperson, presented the petition to President Lyman in February of 1972, she added her own understanding of the issue. "Stanford's continued use of the Indian symbol in the 1970's brings up to visibility a painful lack of sensitivity and awareness on the part of the University. All of us have in some way, by action or inaction, accepted and supported the use of the Indian symbol on campus. We did not do so with malice, or with intent to defile a racial group. Rather, it was a reflection of our society's retarded understanding, dulled perception and clouded vision. Sensitivity and awareness do not come easily when childish misrepresentations in games, history books and motion pictures make up a large part of our experience."

It takes a lot of guts to do what goalies do! As I say to people, you have to be 50% aggressive and 50% crazy! Who else would wrap his body around a ball just before the shooter takes his shot? Or take a dive hands fully out to block a ball and land completely on his side without using his hands? Also, goalies are very protective of their goal. Kind of like German Shepherd to his home. Don’t mess with them!

I haven’t seen the video, but, don’t mess with a goalie. My only question is where was the defense? They are supposed to protect the goalie, even against angry fans! Not a fan of european soccer, but am a total fan of soccer itself. My son himself is a pretty darn good goalie. I hope he wouldn’t have kicked this guy, but he certainly wouldn’t have allowed the idiot to attack him. He’s learned a takedown or two in his taekwondo days!
I was a keeper. My son is a keeper. Try it on us and see what happens. We wouldn't have just kicked him. The idea of an appropriate level of violence is just dumb. If you are attacked, hurt the attacker so badly that they never want to try it again. Do you really want the keeper to have to peek out the locker room door after every game wondering who is going to attack him next? I say let the attackers be ware. In the future, you know you are going to get red carded....get your money's worth!

There is nothing more silly than seeing a grown man driving one of these cars. I imagine the only girlfriend they can get are the kind that don’t shave their legs.

Is it just me? I didn’t see the ignored hand go out. I saw him walk by and touch his arm. That’s all.
