Rice went on TV Sunday the 16th, and spoke directly from CIA talking points. While sending Rice to "all" the Sunday shows was a huge mistake on someones part, she didn't lie.
King is one of the lyingest, loudmouthed, partisan priks in congress!

If you had any balls you would start with Capitol Hill, but, being a sexless automaton, that excuses you from participation. How convenient for you that your every breath is predetermined.

Freedom of religion does not include imposing the tenets of said religion on those who do not accept them.
Customers of any business don't give a damn about the employee wages or benefits. They care only about price, quality, and service.

I wish they could just realize that they have every right to NOT use birth control themselves, and that if they have a problem selling it, they should take the 'PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY' to work for a pharmacy which doesn't offer it for sale.
Should a Jewish check-out person at the grocery store be allowed to refuse to sell pork products and shellfish?
Same exact thing.
Maybe we should ask the Muslim taxi drivers who won't pick up people who have been drinking or even have alcohol on them. Who won't pick up people with dogs.

Don't expect to hear more about an Obamacare surcharge from Denny's franchisee John Metz.

Denny's chief executive John Miller privately reached out to Metz to express his "disappointment" with the Florida franchisee's controversial statements about Obamacare, which sparked a wave of backlash for the national restaurant chain over the past few days. Metz released a statement Monday night expressing "regret" over his statements.

"We recognize his right to speak on issues, but registered our disappointment that his comments have been interpreted as the company’s position," Miller said in an email to The Huffington Post.
Some Denny's franchisees have since dealt with angry customers, calls for a boycott and declining sales. A spokeswoman for Metz said he will not conduct more interviews.

Power to the People!!

A Republican had an accident and needed a brain transplant, The doctor told his family brains are very expensive and you will have to pay for the costs yourselves. How much does a brain cost, asked the family?
For a Republican brain $500,000 dollars.
For a Democrat brain $200,000 dollars.
All the Republicans in the family nodded because they thought they understood.
But the one democrat family member was unsatisfied and asked, Why the difference between Republican and Democrat brains?
Standard pricing practice said the doctor. The Democrat brains have to be marked down because they've actually been used.

If Homer were an executive at Hostess, there wouldn't be any bankruptcy process. Most likely company run by short-sighted middle-aged pasty white Republicans, the reason we have seen many big companies go belly up. They were probably more concerned with getting their bonuses and making as much money as possible to set themselves up and to hell with the company, they'll walk away just fine.
