What liberals, you nasty little liar??

He was suspended by a Private Company. How do you equate that with liberals??

Are you now saying private companies can't operate based on their own written policies??

You've once again made a complete asshole out of yourself for attempting to blame Gov't on this decision.

It was an employee of a private company hired to provide lifeguards.

Here's the company;

Thank you for waving your liberal sign of intolerance once again.
He was most definitely suspended. Only because of public outcry did these liberals tuck their tails between their legs, apologize and reverse the decision.
But you would have fired that lifeguard for saving a person's life because of a liberal politically correct policy and then gone crawling back to offer him his job back after another public outcry and other lifeguards quitting in protest.
Liberals do the right thing only when doing the wrong thing backfires.
Maybe you can explain that to me. I've never quite understood that mentality.
Pretty sure you would know.

I said things probably went a lot smoother because there were only 13 colonies.
But I understand critical thinking isn't most liberals' forte.
I said forefathers not founding fathers, Carol with her typical spin. And you missed the point as usual.

I never made reference to a specific individual but a group of individuals(our forefathers).

I've yet to see any critical thinking from you, you take everything at face value, although you are good at spinning things to suit your needs.

Frankly both the left wing and the right wing need to go jump off a pier and lets those in the middle of political spectrum have the reins. They certainly couldn't do any worse.
The textbooks come out of Texas.....nitwit!!

So it's the sicko liberals of TX who are trying to indoctrinate our nation's youth.

Gawd, you're stupid!!

Conservative justices stress federal overreach in gay marriage case

""A majority of Supreme Court justices expressed concern about a federal law that excludes same-sex couples from marriage in the court's second gay marriage case in history on Wednesday. The probing questions from both wings of the court suggest the law could be struck down in a victory for the gay rights movement, just a day after it appeared unlikely the court would decide the Proposition 8 California case in a way that affirmed gay marriage.
At the arguments, the court's conservative leaning justices asked pointed questions about whether the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act intrudes into states' traditional right to regulate marriage, while the more liberal justices seemed amenable to the argument that DOMA discriminates against gay people and was passed with the intention of excluding an unpopular group. The law prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages even in the nine states and District of Columbia that allow them.
Key swing vote Anthony Kennedy, who has written two landmark opinions upholding gay rights, seemed unconvinced by the argument advanced by attorney Paul Clement that DOMA defines marriage as only between opposite-sex couples to avoid confusion. Clement said that the federal government has an interest in "uniformity," and passed the law to avoid having to treat same-sex couples differently based on whether they live in states that allow gay marriage or not. But Kennedy pointed out that DOMA excludes gay couples from marriage in more than 1,100 federal statutes and laws, which has a substantial impact on the "day to day life" of gay couples and their children. He said the law does not provide uniformity because it affects "only one aspect of marriage."
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg interjected that excluding married couples from sick leave, tax benefits, Social Security survivor benefits, and hundreds of other federal benefits and obligations relegates same-sex couples to a "skim milk marriage," that is substantially worse than what heterosexual couples have access to.
Kennedy joined with conservative colleagues Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito in asking tough questions about whether the federal government was overreaching with the statute. Kennedy said DOMA did not seem to recognize states's "historical" responsibility for marriage and said he thinks the central question of the case is whether the federal government has the authority to regulate marriage.""

Never occurred to you that most blacks disagree with the radicalism of Malcolm X??

Or is your stupidity that overwhelming??

Macolm X never had the support of black Americans.

Malcolm X was a revolutionary and a Radical Muslim. For you to use him as a prop only shows what a moron you are.

Still seething over Rmoney's loss, I see.

Deal with it, you uneducated fool!!

yeah, yeah. and gay marriage will be legal and no longer an issue. and then liberals will demand that men be able to marry underage boys, and rightwingers will object because they're "hateful" and "discriminate." and then that will go to court and pass and no longer be an issue. and then liberals will demand that the words "bride" and "groom" discriminate, because what if a man wants to marry his dog or his pet gerbil? does it matter what sex the animal is? rightwingers will always be so stuffy and outdated.

it'll just never end.

Critical thinking is not permitted with evangelicals. I'm serious.
It has been banished in Texas public schools. They think it's against the Lord.
