    Ok Donald. You keep saying you can / would ‘fix it’ – at least TRY doing so by building a wall – SOoooooo Donald… Care to tell us the details of your plan? You said you’d have Mexico pay for it. Can you at least tell us the details of that? And then identify if /how y I u will get Mexico to pay the Millions each year it will cost to ‘manage’ a border fence.

    And then when you’re all done giving us the details of the border fence… You can identify the details of stopping ISIS – which you said you also could / would do.

    Thanks Donald.
    I bet if you present those details – that would go a LONG way to earning some votes.

    So when did the pursuit of happiness become an excuse for harmful discrimination of (a very select) few others?

    No one is forced to own a business. (Which then must operate within the boundaries / rules and regulations of doing business in the public marketplace.
    And in this case – this state… One of the rules of operating a business in the public marketplace is that you can NOT discriminate against customers / potential customers on the grounds of sexual orientation.

    And so any conservative Republican politician or govt official who has ANY ‘association’ with say…. The Family Reseach Council… Shall we say they are in cahoots with them and then biased and bigoted in all their decision-making and actions???

    And since when have acts of discrimination in the public marketplace become forms of free speech or religious freedom?

    So what are the limits of ‘religious freedom’ in the public marketplace?
    Can a Muslim extremist business owner claim it is their religious freedom right to kill any apparent Christian infidel customer – rarher than be forced to sell anything / participate in anything the Christian infidel may desire?

    Folks will claim that is but an extreme example but… Where does this ‘logic’ end? How is there ‘middle ground’ when talking about the limitless forms of ‘expression’ religiosity freedom can take?

    The tolerant Left…
    So I suppose for every Tea Party protest or ANY ‘disent’ ever offered by the Right… We can start be describing such as being done by… The tolerant Right – ???

    And this is great… Between fols like Trump and Coulter representing the Right / Republicans… There is zero chance of a Republican gaining the presidency in our country – where Latinos are becoming a much larger percentage of the population.
    That a-way folks… Keep insulting your way out of political power.

    So you are placing yourself / your ‘value’ to Glenn ‘above’ the Dalai Lama?

  • [-1] July 2, 2015 at 4:34pm

    Not sure who / what you are referring to. You referring to Beck? Obama?
    “repub” is who?

    No. Not necessarily.
    I think what is perhaps most important – or at least most ‘concerning’ to me – is if some think just holding differing positions or enacting policy they disagree with is done so to be INTENTIONALLY divisive.

    For those that disagree with Obama’s policies and the like… He MAY be considered divisive to SOME, even many of them.
    I disagreed with most all that the previous president (Bush) did / said yet… I do not think he was being intentionally divisive. No more so than I believe Obama is intentionally divisive.

    Just because one disagrees with another’s positions or policies or actions does not mean one ‘needs’ to believe the other is being intentionally divisive.

    I think many who post here do believe Obama is intentionally divisive.
    I think they are wrong.
    The Left and the Right – Democrats and Republicans often believe in different ways for moving our country forward. Yes. To some amount those differences will cause some degree of divisiveness. That really can’t be helped. We disagree on how to do things / What causes things / etc. However…
    I do think most all Americans want to see a ‘better’ America. (Though we may even disagree on what is a ‘better’ America but…)

    One of the reasons I dislike Glenn Beck is because I believe he IS INTENTIONALLY divisive – AND is so so as to generate income. I think that is terrible. (like Limbaugh)
    Though, of late, I think Beck may be trying to be less divisive so…
    That’s positive.

    Since many, probably most of you did not read all of what Takei wrote…
    Takei: “To say that the government does not bestow or grant dignity does not mean it cannot succeed in stripping it away through the imposition of unequal laws and deprivation of due process. At the very least, the government must treat all its subjects with equal human dignity. To deny a group the rights and privileges of others, based solely on an immutable characteristic such as race – or as in Obergefell, sexual orientation – is to strip them of human dignity and of the liberty to live as others live.”

    The Dalai Lama is a wonderful human being and speaks great wisdom.
    I respect him for his willingness to meet with someone like Beck who is so divisive. Knowing that I too can often be divisive… It gives me hope to know that there are those around who genuinely seek to ‘bridge the gap’ and work with those elements we can (almost) all agree on – so as to make the world we share a better place.
