Mighty Dumb Builder thinks bashing gays should be legal.
Mighty DumbBuilder does get that a hate crime would also be valid if a bunch of gays attacked him because he was straight.
If by "bashing" you mean something verbal rather than physical, well, we still have the First Amendment (for the time being).

"Hate crimes" are BS. The crime is no different, better or worse, because of the motivation of the criminal.

Besides, Holder has already ruled that black-on-white crime is not "hate crime" in any circumstance.

The youngest son of Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose Driven Life," has committed suicide, the evangelical pastor said in a letter to members of his church on Saturday.
Matthew Warren was found dead of what appeared to be suicide by gunshot in his home in Mission Viejo, Calif., said Supervising Deputy Dan Aikin of the Orange County Sheriff-Coroner’s Department. The estimated time of death was 10 a.m. on Friday morning.
In spite of America’s best doctors, meds, counselors, and prayers for healing, the torture of mental illness never subsided,” Warren wrote to church members.“Today, after a fun evening together with Kay and me, in a momentary wave of despair at his home, he took his life.”

Ok, years of suffering with mental illness and had a gun. Here we go.
Mental illness, something that a background check would never reveal. Something that Obama ignores in his zeal to disarm America, for whatever purpose he has in mind.

<quoted text>Are you really going to sit here and try to debate Obama taxes compared with anyone?
During most of Obama's first term, personal income taxes remained unchanged. More recently, the Bush tax cuts were rolled back only on the top 1%.

Get a clue, clueless.
Here is a clue, yungun, when Americans are boring, they are spending, more jobs are created, more taxes are generated. More people working equals more taxes paid and a lower tax rate required.
Ah, I see. So boredom equates to a higher consumption rate? I seem to have missed that in the three economics courses I took.

As for your "lower taxes equates to more government revenue" that's another GOP myth. Didn't exactly work under Chimpy, did it?
Unemployed people do not just not pay taxes, they consume and leach off of taxes that are paid.
Hatred of the poor is such an ugly GOP trait.

Two Florida Republicans are prompting the Obama administration to open an investigation into Beyonce and Jay-Z’s recent trip to Cuba, arguing that the couple may have violated sanctions against the communist country.
Former House Foreign Affairs Committee chairwoman Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and her colleague Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart sent a letter to the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control on Friday, calling for an investigation into whether any laws were broken during the celebrities’ trip:

Warren said his son spent a fun day with the family and then committed suicide. Sad to hear of young people giving up hope. This is just more proof that the majority of gun deaths are a result of suicide; most of them young white males.
He said his son suffered from a lifetime of mental illness; how did he get a gun?
Suicide is a personal choice, just like abortion, and no more or less morally offensive. A life is a life.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Saturday asserted that a Phoenix program to hire more black and Latino lifeguards at public pools was the “same rationale that propped up Jim Crow for 80 years.”

NPR last month reported that the city of Phoenix had set out to hire more minorities because more than 90 percent of the swimmers at some pools were black or Latino, but a majority of lifeguards were white.

So, are you and NJ the same person or did you just go to school together? Gay friendly means accepting of gays.
The continued reference to pedophilia and bestiality when speaking about gays is dehumanizing to them. Did you like being equated with apes? Gays are not pedophiles not are zoophiles; it's possible, but not probable.
For how many years did whites categorize blacks as wild untamed beasts?
Everyone knows people who are against same sex marriage, there are enough of you ignoramouses around. Most educated and enlightened people do not have prejudices against others who are different than them.
Aids is not only a disease affecting gays. Actually it is pretty prevalent in Hispanic and Black communities among straight people.

Sorry, homosexuality is not a "suspect class" and therefore that behavior is not a minority grouping and so they can only have similar rights with similar groups. That would mean pedophiles, zoophiliacs, incest couples, polygamist and if you must illegal aliens.

The first and only qualification for lifeguards should be swimming and lifesaving ability. If the white applicant is a better swimmer than the black applicant, then he should be hired even if there are no black lifeguards.

But not much else.

The repeal of Glass Stengal was the direct result of Republican efforts. Just like NAFTA, you freakin right whiners never accept blame for the sh*t your own party does.

The Graham, Bailey Leach Act repealed it. All three were Republicans. Clinton signed the bill as a compromise. Republicans got their repeal.

The debt was 10,8 trillion when Obama took office.

Now, I don't know where (if?) you went top school, but the debt today is not 21.6 trillion so how the f*ck did Obama add more than all Presidents combined.

You are just another dumbass right whiner who doesn't know shj*t but the lies put out by your heroes Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck & Fox news.

Repugnants controlled both House and Senate. Nice try. Clinton signed off after the GOP majority forced it. That these banks are currently being fined enormous sums is proof they were guilty of predatory lending of a voluntary nature, not forced lending because of Barney Frank or Chris Dodd.
Bill Clinton having a balanced budget had nothing to do with the financial economic train wreck that he started.
Wrong, no economic train wreck under Clinton. There was no bank crisis, no doubling of the federal debt or 500,000 jobs being lost each month during his last months in office. No credit-default scams.

The balanced budget after years in the red by Reagan and GHW Bush was a major accomplishment.

Nice try.
If banks are loaning money, milking Wall Street investors that creates short term taxes to enable the balancing of the budget.
As I said before, get the grease clogs out of your brain before making a fool of yourself with GOP hot air gobble-de-gook.

Well, that's mighty big of you to admit. If you can't see the threat this poses to our economy over the long run, and I doubt you have the education grasp it, you are truly hopeless.
Also, Obamacare is simply Hilarycare and that was the payoff for her support.
Says you. I should further point out, health insurance is still private. There is no government version.
