    Not sure who you are directing your comments to.
    (But if directed to me… I NEVER said I want or would support hate speech laws.)

    Interesting signs you seem to be seeing. Do you drive some dark desolate roads?

    “you guys are all dead, either by starvation or violence”
    Really now?
    You don’t say.
    Apparently you do but…
    Apparently your grasp of reality isn’t that strong.

    So AS / AFTER the economy collapse(s) and ‘us guys’ (just who specifically are “you guys”?) are all dead due to either starvation or violence… SOME in “Rural America” will be enjoying “another deer steak on the barbie” having “a nice hot meal”.
    GREAT
    Interesting outlook you have there pa_native.
    VERY interesting.

    And oh. Just to note.
    We live on 5+ acres. Have access to FAR more land directly around us – all full of lots of deer, turkeys, coyotes, and much more game. Relatives directly nearby raise chickens. We have well water and back-up power.
    I think we’re pretty well prepared for any ‘basic emergency’.

    But I won’t go so far as to suggest we would fair to well should the economy truly, wholly – collapse.
    NO ONE will be prepared enough for that.
    (But you go ahead and pretend you are with your deer stakes on the barbie. It seems to calm you so… That’s what really counts at this time.)

    I don’t know Zippy.
    Perhaps you can regurgitate it like a bird and feed it to me.
    But since I’m not getting anywhere near that fowl mouth of yours…
    (Get it? Fowl. Not foul.)

    Try again next time Zippy

    Really Slappy?
    Can’t even defend YOUR OWN WORDS?
    Won’t even try. How sad.

    I point out the blatant double-standard hypocrisy of your post – using your very own words (and the quoted words of others) and all you can do to TRY and squirm out of such is post: “Was there a point to that? Just words.”

    Yes Slap. There was a point. Let me repeat it for you.
    You are a two-faced hypocrite – and I proved it with your own words.

    Dismissed

    Oh that’s right Zippy. ONLY Democrats (and Liberals, and Progressives, and anyone you disagree with) ‘use’ porn, do drugs, commit crimes.

    Your incredible powers of observing ALL that is TRUE makes you invaluable.
    To yourself.

    I just viewed some of your facebook page and apparently you ARE pro-death penalty.
    Sounds like you squirm a bit about it: “To be honest, I’ve struggled with this issue quite a bit. ” – but in the end you offer convoluted reasons for why you still support it.

    You sir, and I use that term loosely, are as great a two-faced hypocrite as they come.

    “The pro-life position has to be one that allows no exceptions, otherwise it makes no sense.”
    That’s what you wrote above. Yet there you are on your facebook page TRYING to give justification for the death penalty.

    You see Mr. Walsh. I don’t PRETEND to be pro-life like you. I don’t put some pro-life ‘crown’ on my own head and profess: “If you’re pro-life, then you need to be pro-life without exception. Period.” But then go and support the taking of life via the death penalty.

    I AM pro-choice in that I believe such decisions are to be made by the woman, the male involved in the situation, and when applicable, the woman’s doctor.
    I most certainly believe EVERY attempt should be made to bring the conceived life into this world – but will not pretend to know or understand all the possible reason why such can not or should not be done.
    I also am anti-death penalty.
    Why?
    Because I do not accept the killing of another in the name of supposed justice – via flawed justice systems. I do not accept that our govt (any govt) will take life.via a legal system that can not assure guilt 100% of the time.

    Hey! Guess what Slappy. I belong to a gun club too. (Well actually its called a “Sportsman’s Club”) Unfortunately it doesn’t have that diverse of a membership but… I’ll chalk that up to the demographics of the area we live.

    “People are judged on character, not appearances.”
    Really now?
    Shall I dig up LOTS of examples from this site that will PROVE OTHERWISE?

    “People are judged on character, not appearances.”
    Like that young black boy carrying a ‘toy’ gun – shot dead in the park seconds after the police arrived?
    Like that young black fellow carrying a toy gun in the WalMart – shot dead?

    Are THOSE the type of judgments of character – not appearances – you are talking about???

  • [-8] January 23, 2015 at 8:51am

    See Slappy… Don’t you feel better when its made all about you?
    (Apparently you do.)

    “every story you post on, you continually insert what you feel is someone that you think people have immediate fear over.”
    Geeeee. I wonder where I get that impression.
    Shall I dig up the hundreds – no, literally thousands – of posts made here at TheBlaze that offer, in THEIR OWN WORDS – the ‘fear’ people have of those others or organizations or govts they disagree with – or have no real understanding of?

    Hmmmm
    Does this sound familiar Slappy?
    “He’s lucky he didn’t get shot. These are the people we carry to protect ourselves from.”

    Or maybe: “a govt that takes away peoples rights.”
    Or: “How about we start by firing every union member that works for the VA?”
    “They kick the sht out of Muslims every time they take the gloves off. And God is on their side.”
    “If it hurt your feelings, good.”
    “I think the term white privilege breeds hate. Who do I go cry to?”
    “Planned parenthood is a bunch of pigs.”

    OK enough about you.
    How about we try someone else?
    “People like this mental case … should not be allowed within 10 miles of a Gun”
    “Someone should beat the crap outta these 2 POS wannabe’s.”
    “I hope these released terrorists attack democrat news stations or people”
    “Black lives Don’t Matter”
    ” democrats HATE Veterans and The Troops.”

    There are TONS of material available right here at this site so… Shall I go on Slappy? You want MORE examples of people that have immediate fear over others?

  • [-6] January 23, 2015 at 7:47am

    Oh come on now Slappy
    I care what YOU wonder about.
    Really I do.

    I really want to hear what you wonder would happen if it was a Middle Eastern-looking fellow who walked into a store like this and some ‘Great American’ saw him “wearing a holstered handgun under his coat”
    Do share with us.

    And please. Don’t get all emotional about me.
    This is all really about YOU.

    I thought you lived in Tampa Monk-Man.
    There’s no king there.
    Oh. Well there is Shaun King who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Is that who you mean?)

    Curious Monk-Man. What do YOU do when you go to pay last respects to someone (and stand before them in their casket)?

    And if Obama does go to give last respects…
    And if Obama were to bow before the casket..
    Or if Obama were not to go to Saudi Arabia for the funeral…
    What then?

    All seriousness aside…
    Could you please give us your assessment now (before it does or doesn’t happen) as to if… Obama does go to give last respects…
    As to if Obama were to bow before the casket..
    As to if Obama were not to go to Saudi Arabia for the funeral…

    I’m sure if you shared with us those views some of your followers would greatly appreciate such because then they too would know how to think about such matters if they do or don’t happen.
    So many are counting on you to guide them in the way of the Monk-Man.

    Crony Capitalism: “a term describing an economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials.”

    Curious Glenn. What is your assessment on the grand relationship between our military complex and business and politicians?
    What are your recommendations for making / allowing that situation to operate under ‘true’ capitalism?

    Curious Glenn. Is the Mormon faith founded on principles of true capitalism? Does it operate on such principles today?
    If you can’t (don’t) apply the core ‘operating principles’ of your own faith to all other areas of your life then…

    And while your at ‘enlightening’ the pope about capitalism Glenn…
    Maybe you can see about converting him to Mormonism.
    Maybe tell him all about John Smith and his many wives – some in their early teens. That will impress him.
    And oh. Be sure to remind the pope of how Jesus visited the Americas. Is there maybe a ‘Jesus slept here’ site here in America you can take him to visit? Now THAT would surely impress the pope.
    You’ll have him becoming a venture capitalist Mormon in no time!

    Vote Ted and Ted in 2016!!!

    Ted Cruz and Ted Nugent

    Oh the joy that would bring to so many.

    I think you have a fabulous idea there Monk-Man.
    Really now.
    Please do try to convince this Ted to run for (high) office. The response would be WONDERFUL to see.

    (And you and your buddies please also do continue to try and make sure ole Ted ‘the cruise missile’ Cruz runs for president in 2016. As he said… ONLY with someone like him running will Republicans be able to take back the office of the presidency.)

    vendingdude
    The truthiness of your statement is just another example of the brilliant, spot-on analysis available here at TheBlaze
    BRILLIANT!

    Has dealing in reality always been this difficult for you?

  • [-13] January 23, 2015 at 12:23am

    I wonder the response if a Middle Eastern-looking fellow walked into a store like this and some ‘Great American’ saw him “wearing a holstered handgun under his coat”… If the reaction wouldn’t be something just like this.

    My guess is nine times out of ten… The Middle Eastern fellow would be lucky IF he was just ‘jumped’ and not… Shot first. Asked for permit later.

    Let’s just work to have more guns everywhere.
    THAT will lesson the chance of having more situations like this. Right?
    Lesson the chance of a situation like this turning deadly.
    Right???

    I posted this above but in case you missed…

    The more I think about this particular case the more I understand why one of my first ‘impressions’ and questions to ask was.. Do we have any ‘Hate Speech’ laws?
    I actually do believe THIS particular case IS much more of a ‘free speech’ type issue than a gay discrimination / refusal of service to gays issue.
    WHY?
    Because in this case it is but the words and images on the cake that are at issue. In this case – and perhaps the other cake cases… The baker offered to sell the customer a cake – just not a cake with what they wanted written and displayed on it.

    Now compare that to some other business where discrimination / a refusal of product or service (because one is gay) could result in physical (or financial or other) harm…
    Say a privately owned ambulance service…
    Or use any business where there could be real physical harm done if service / product is withheld.
    Let’s say in a particular area all the hospitals were owned by religiously ‘conscientious’ folks who refused to service gays?
    Might some real physical harm result from that?
    (YES!)

    Whereas in this particular cake case… It is but the withholding of certain words and images on a cake that is the issue.

    The REAL ISSUE is NOT about cakes or wedding halls but instead on how discrimination against gays / refusing to ‘sell’ them product or service could indeed result in ‘real’ physical or other harm.

    And for some reason I am now using a privately owned ambulance service in my examples but…
    Use any business where there could be real physical harm done if service / product is withheld.

    An ambulance service or… (I also already used this one but) Let’s say in a particular area all the hospitals were owned by religiously ‘conscientious’ folks who refused to service gays?
    Might some real physical harm result from that?
    (YES!)

    Whereas in this particular cake case… It is but the withholding of certain words and images on a cake that is the issue.

    ‘We’ need to stop arguing about cakes and wedding halls and instead focus on how discrimination against gays could result in ‘real’ physical or other harm.

  • [-3] January 22, 2015 at 11:47pm

    ichbin
    The cake is but the ‘product’ or service being withheld in this case.
    What happens when the religiously ‘conscientious’ business owner withholds the service of say… Emergency medical care?!?!?
    In my area the many of the ambulance services are privately owned – not owned and operated by the public / the community or town.
    So lets say the religiously ‘conscientious’ business owner of an ambulance service decides he/she will no longer provide their service to gay people.
    Everyone else will be serviced by this ambulance company but just not gays!
    What might the result of that be?

    Even in America’s (supposed) free marketplace… Business can not discriminate on the grounds of race, color, religion …
    And we have now added – I believe properly.. based on sexual orientation.

    Don’t want to operate under those ‘regulations’ of operating a business in the public marketplace then… Don’t own a business.

    And to note… I was NOT equating yelling fire with a cake.
    The ‘comparison’ was simply to offer that, like with Free Speech – which is NOT absolute… Freedom of Religion is also NOT absolute.
    When others are harmed… That is when the limits of the freedom have been reached.

    You are correct. Being refused a cake is not really harmful.
    Lying dead on the side of the road because some religiously ‘conscientious’ ambulance owner decided his god beliefs would be offended if he serviced a gay IS much more ‘harmful’!
