If you want to believe in the great fairy in the sky, that’s your business. Please, don’t expect me to view anything about it. Have your manger on your lawn at Xmas, I really don’t give a care. But if you expect to put one up on any public property, there is going to be an issue. I don’t want any hint of the nonsense that is religion in the public domaine…! Capiche?
Capiche, but wear your Depends before you step in my way or you may embarrass yourself.

I would guarantee that he’ll see it again. I have more respect for just about anyone in the world than I do for the perpetually whining Xtian Fundies…!

The dog is NOT a happy critter. Only a total ass would allow a child to stand on a dog’s back. And only a moron would make a connection between this animal abuse and LEGAL abortion. (Don’t want an abortion? Don’t get one. But keep your damned nose OUT of MY business…!)
Good point. This is why I refuse to go horseback riding? I am putting on a little weight after the Christmas holidays. Now if the horse would give me permission to ride, then that would would be a different story.
Hey, maybe the dog gave him permission to stand on his back. Did you you ever consider that a possibility? Did you ask the dog or did you just assume he never gave his OK? These are the real questions.

As long as the church has hold over children there will always be religion. If children were not brought to a Church, Temple or Mosque soon after birth for a pagan ceremony, then to Sunday school for fairy tales time and then when old enough, initiated into the adult church, Religion would die on the vine. It is the brainwashing by the religions that perpetuate the religions and in the case of Catholicism, Protestantism and the spinoffs of each keeps the money coming in. It’s ALL about money and control of other people…!
Ah, apparently, you gobble up the **** served up by ******** and the fact that it’s packed between your ears means you can’t taste it in your mouth now.
No. Much worse. And tainted by liberalism.

My reaction to the “rare” comment was the same as yours. I too have lived up and down the California coast and I’m well aware of all the shark attacks. I now live in Santa Cruz, where we had an attack on a surfer not too long ago. Anybody who had been swimming in the Pacific Ocean probably has been within a hundred yards of a great white shark.
It’s good that you left California when you did. If you’re happy in Idaho, so much the better. I can’t stand Californians who whine about the state. There is no place I’d rather live and in my working days I traveled all over the country. So, to anyone who has left California and complains about the state, I say good riddance…we don’t need you here…!

I’m a similar glutton for punishment. Sometimes I listen to Rush. Then I realize I am listening to one of the most ignorant people in America, with his legions of similarly ignorant “ditto-heads”.

Cops are mostly pigs these days. They don’t give a damn about anyone that is outside of their porcine family.
some teenagers were talking about cops and saying they are far more dangerous than any-criminal criminals might rob you beat you but-then they leave
they say if i a cop dislikes you its a promise to go to prison no matter if innocent or not
The Koolaid you're drinking has turned rancid.
Would you be brave enough to put on a police officer's uniform & walk the streets of NYC with the climate the mayor, Sharpton, Obama, & Holder have created?
I'd enjoy your comment better if you were at the funeral spouting that nonsense.
You are a computer warrior with no guts.

A lot of farms in California are in places where they ought not to be. One example is the West side of San Joaquin Valley. All they grow there are crops like some of the worst quality cotton in the world (but it makes low-quality cottonseed oil very cheap), melons, almonds and pistachios. It takes a lot of water to grow these crops and yes, the environment is more important than some hayseed farmer who decided to plant in lousy soil and has to import water…!

Most cops are PIGS! This has been the case since the mid-’60′s and seems to have gotten significantly worse. I’m certainly no advocate of cop killing but I also have trouble finding much sympathy beyond condolences to the families. The guy who killed the two cops in New York was a wack job, plain and simple. He wasn’t even bright enough to go after the white cops…

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
Step out of line, the men come and take you away
Time to haul off the sick Sarge…

i had the ignominious experience of selling wine in Memphis, over a dozen years ago. What I remember from the experience was the fact that Memphis had the largest volume of magnum (1.5 liters = 2 standard 750 ml. bottles) sales in the country. I was told that a large percentage of these sales were to the “ethnic” population…

Nonsense! In May 2008, I paid $4.999 (I call that five bucks) per gallon in Sacramento at an Arco station. It was the cheapest gas in the area. Hell, it was $1.619 when I gave my son a car for college. First hit a buck in 1979…

Out of curiosity, where did that 8% number come from? Ted Cruz has a better chance being elected to king of the world than POTUS.

Nonsense. It would be no more proper to put up a Chanukah menorah. Religion has no business in the public square.
Religion as as much business in the public square as anything else does.
Why is that?
I feel so sorry for you. It would appear that your life is filled with the miserable task of fighting anyone who would want to enjoy Christmas. Yes, everyone knows that the dates may or may not have been pirated from pagans, and Christ was likely born in late September which would really make Christmas a celebration of His conception! More realistic is the fact that the early church had March 25th as Annunciation Day and nine months later.... December 25th! If you are employed, I would assume that you don't take Christmas off as a holiday and if you work it, you do so for straight pay not holiday pay? Otherwise that would make you a hypocrite. Merry Christmas, even if you don't believe in it.
How about some cheese to go with that "whine" of yours? Get a life!
and secularism has destroyed more families thru divorce and abortion--you are doing the work of satan
Once again, your understanding of our Constitution is lacking.
It would be EXACTLY as proper to put up a Chanukah menorah. If that's what the people chose to do.
Why? Is it not freedom of speech to put up a menorah? Or does that only apply to protesters and works of art that might be considered offensive?
Its shocking to me that something like a clothesline hanging a bunch of clay penises will be legally protected as art and freedom of expression in a public library, but a menorah in the corner is viciously attacked as “having no place in public!”
This statement “Religion has no business in the public square” is shocking to me considering how often religion is referenced in our history. The declaration of independence itself mentions the importance of God in the very ideals for which this nation was founded. But, heck I guess that was a typo right?
Perhaps we shouldn’t shoot off fireworks on the 4th of July, because that could be offensive to people who don’t like this country. Or maybe we shouldn’t hold thanksgiving day parades because someone might not like what the pilgrims did. You know what, lets just stop teaching history because its full of things that have “no business in the public square.” Lets live in ignorance of what a holiday (from the roots Holy and Day) was established for because someone believes differently and thus we must avoid why its there.
This is sounding more and more like Fahrenheit 451. Censor everything so no one has to see that which they may choose to be offended by.
Something you need to understand is WE, myself, you and all others ARE THE PUBLIC SQUARE. It has every right and business to be where we say it does! If it offends you, look away. I see much in the public that offends me, but I look the other way (turn my cheek). Islam offends me in their Sharia Law.
Who says? You? Then can you explain why Congress opens with a prayer every time they meet? Or that the 10 Commandments are in the Supreme Court Chambers?

TOUGH! You don’t get to push ANY religion on public property. Just because you have the right to worship any deity you wish, you have NO right to foist that nonsense on non-believers. A nativity scene on public property is not guaranteed by the Constitution.
How is setting up a peaceful Nativity "foisting" anything on you? It's simply sitting there to be enjoyed or ignored. Take your pick.
“A nativity scene on public property is not guaranteed by the Constitution.”
You are absolutely correct. However, at the same time, PREVENTING a nativity scene on public property is also not guaranteed by the Constitution.
The first amendment states that Congress shall make NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof. So any LAW (not vague action by not-congress but something to do with government) promoting or preventing a nativity would be unconstitutional.
However the tenth amendment states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”
So technically since the power to DECIDE on a nativity (whether or not to promote or prevent) is STRICTLY forbidden the federal government, it is left, in plain text, in the hands of the states and people to do if they so choose.
The constitution doesn’t HAVE to guarantee any right specifically. The tenth amendment was put in place saying that anything the government isn’t told it can or cannot do is left to the people or state to decide whether to do or not do.
But, given your interpretation that the constitution must guarantee a right in order for people to exercise it… The constitution doesn’t guarantee the rights to life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness (that’s in the non-legal document “the declaration of independence”) so I guess we don’t have the right to breath, or live, or try to be happy. Oh wait.
when the minority changes centuries old American Traditions in a country with 85% christian beliefs and believe Christ is a real person thats called tyranny it's the atheist that are the minority it's the atheist who are the fascist and it's the atheist that are the ones doing the pushing. when a handful of people can have this type of impact to get courts to undermine a nativity scene you should take notice and you should be worried that our courts are for sale to the highest bidder.
You are a sad case. And so wrong
VERY recent Final Ruling of the Supreme Court
Town of Greece vs. Galloway
The town’s practice of opening its town board meetings with a prayer offered by members of the clergy does not violate the Establishment Clause when the practice is consistent with the tradition long followed by Congress and state legislatures, the town does not discriminate against minority faiths in determining who may offer a prayer, and the prayer does not coerce participation with non-adherents.
Thousands of years ago, scriptures were written to describe who speaks "nonsense," and it clearly describes you.
