I just seriously cannot believe this. Sounds like something the cons on here would do. Ol' Randy's working SC pretty hard, isn't he? I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he does make a photo-op stop there. Bet he orders white meat, though.South Carolina Restaurant Denies Service To African-Americans On Orders Of ‘Threatened’ White Customer
Are Southern conservatives taking aim at the Civil Rights Act now? It sure looks that way after a restaurant in South Carolina refused to serve a group of African-Americans who waited for two hours to get a table when a white customer demanded they be turned away.
The Wild Wings Café in Charleston, South Carolina is under fire after flat out refusing to serve a large group of black family members and friends who were in town to say goodbye to a cousin in July. A white customer demanded the restaurant to do so because she felt “threatened.”
Hopefully, this is just a freak incident of stupidity that won’t happen again in the future, but if Southern conservatives ever wanted to challenge the Civil Rights Act, they have an opening. All they have to do is continue to defy the Civil Rights Act by refusing to do business with African-Americans until someone sues them.
Then they can attempt to dismiss the suit by
claiming that the Act is unconstitutional. It’s how Republicans managed to successfully gut the Voting Rights Act. They kept challenging the Justice Department rejection of voter suppression laws in court until the conservative-leaning Supreme Court did racists a favor and struck down a longstanding section of the Voting Right Act. It’s also how conservatives have been chipping away at affirmative action. It’s hypothetical, of course, but worth watching for.
For years, Southern conservatives have been dreaming of dismantling the Civil Rights Era legislation that put an end to Jim Crow. This latest apparent act of racism occurred in South Carolina, the state that has been ground zero for segregation and racist laws since the Civil War. A Confederate flag still flies on the grounds outside the state house. It’s definitely not a stretch to think that conservatives could get a section of the Civil Rights Act struck down, and now that they have control of the Supreme Court, you have to wonder if the landmark legislation is going to be targeted at some point in the future.

So true. I like your avatar Mrs HTBM. Their heads are spinning like Regan's in the Exorcist and they are probably as revolting looking as she is while they do it. They better be ready for her, she is coming..FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT. They will deny, deny, deny like they do President Obama in his SECOND TERM they failed at preventing. MAJORITY RULES.

In Context: Hillary Clinton's 'What difference does it make' comment
Clinton: With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime.

THAT'S your spin.
Feminism is the Radical Notion that Women are People
Being Pro-Choice is simply and understanding that such decisions are none of your business and it is not the governments place to interfere with the patient/doctor relationship.
You might be a republiCON if you believe that a corporation has all the rights that humans have, but women don't.
You might be a republiCON if you believe that the government should stay out of your life! Unless of course, it's at the doctor's office, at the church, in the bedroom, involves a restriction on guns, or a woman's body
You might be a republiCON if you call yourself pro-life, but be in favor of the death penalty.
You might be a republiCON if you call yourself pro-life, and put guns in the hands of school children.
You might be a republiCON if you finally agree with Iran on Women's Rights.
The RepubliCON party has awakened the sleeping giant. WOMEN. We have tolerated your misogyny, we have been polite, reasonable, and tried to help you understand why you can not control our bodies. We have received scorn and shame in return. We are the Women of the United States of America. We outnumber YOU, and we will not be silenced. 2014/2016 is coming.
RepubliCONS voted against:
Equal Pay For Women (passed anyway)
Are against a woman's right to choose. They want to force women to have kids when raped and then give the rapist visitation and custody rights.
With 53% of the votes in 2012, women are currently the largest voting group. In 2014/2016 the women will hit back.
How many RepubliCONS does it take to fix a problem?
No one knows, it has never happened.
There are over 2,225,000 women in Kentucky
Mitch McCONnell voted against the
Violence Against Women Act

He was on the news today in some soup kitchen or something like it helping put lunch bags together, grabbed a baggie with two pieces of chicken in it to put in a bag with a room full of blacks. You should of seen his face. It was PRICELESS.
He has spent his 8 week vacation zipping across the country for photo ops while NOT saying he is running for President. Can't wait until they dig up all that mess old turtleman and Trey Grayson posted in 2010. He isn't fit to be Senator, let alone be President. I doubt KENTUCKY will make that mistake again. Besides it is fun watching the teabaggers vs republiCONS. They eat their own at every given chance. hahaha

Conservative PAC Hits Mitch McConnell From the Right
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is getting some heat today from the right.
A conservative political action committee, The Madison Project, will begin airing a radio ad in Kentucky today going after McConnell, something they call the “first of many attempts to unveil the truth about Mitch McConnell’s failed leadership in Washington.”
Listen to the Radio Ad Here
The Madison Project, led by former GOP Rep. Jim Ryun, was an early endorser of McConnell’s Republican challenger, businessman Matt Bevin.
“Career Washington politician Mitch McConnell claims to be a conservative,” the narrator of the ad says before unleashing a series of assaults on McConnell, including asking if a “conservative” would support issues including immigration reform, citing McConnell’s votes for immigration reform in 1986 and 2006.“No, but Mitch McConnell did,” the narrator repeats throughout the ad.
McConnell voted against the most recent comprehensive immigration bill, which passed the Senate in June.
The one minute ad, titled “Would a Conservative,” has an almost $30,000 buy and also hits McConnell on his 2008 vote for the Troubled Asset Relief Program or TARP, which the narrator describes as McConnell “bail(ing) out his Wall Street friends with over $700 billion of your taxpayer dollars.”
The ad also mentions one of the most recent conservative critiques of McConnell:“And would a self-proclaimed conservative leader be undermining the conservative effort to defund ObamaCare in Washington? Absolutely not. But that is exactly what Mitch McConnell is up to now.”
McConnell has supported repealing the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, but is not backing a move spearheaded by Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, to vote down the next continuing resolution if it funds ACA implementation.
McConnell has co-sponsored a bill with Cruz that would strip funding for the law from the continuing resolution. The current funding measure runs out Sept. 30. Unless Congress passes a new funding measure by that date, the government will shut down.
This is the Madison Project’s first ad hitting McConnell, but the McConnell campaign has been pounding away at Bevin, calling him “Bailout Bevin” and “not a Kentucky conservative” in television ads running in the state.
Daniel Horowitz, policy director of The Madison Project called the ad “just the beginning,” stressing they will be in the fight until the primary in May. According to Horowitz, this particular ad will “run for a few weeks statewide” on conservative talk radio because they want to “begin communicating with conservatives to have a long-form debate on 30 years of McConnell’s attempts to undermine conservatives.”
Horowitz says McConnell has been “talking one way in the state and talking another way in the Senate” and says while McConnell tends to “vote the right way in the end … he won’t talk about it” and “hasn’t taken a firm stance on any contentious issue.”
McConnell and Bevin will face off in May and whoever wins the primary will run against the Democratic candidate, Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.
The McConnell campaign press secretary Allison Moore responded to the radio ad in a statement saying,“All you need to know about this group is that they’re supporting a tax delinquent bailout artist who lies on his resume over the most conservative Republican Leader in modern history.”
“Apparently Matt Bailout Bevin has a small cadre of fringe friends in Washington who have concluded that conservative governance isn’t half as important as making money off his quixotic Senate campaign,” Moore said.
Love it when they eat their own. lol

Hasan's crime stands out because it's so rare: Our view
Homegrown terrorism fails to spread in the USA since 9/11.
Much of the debate during the court-martial of Army Maj. Nidal Hasan was about the government's decision to call the killing of 13 fellow soldiers "workplace violence" rather than terrorism — a semantic argument of little consequence. The term was a legal tactic meant to strip Hasan of a potential defense.
With his conviction last week and the penalty phase set to start Monday, it's more important to ask whether his crimes are an anomaly or whether they signal a broader threat.
OTHER VIEWS: Will this jihadist be a martyr?
Hasan is by any measure a terrorist — a homegrown Islamist fanatic who went on a killing spree at Fort Hood, Texas, in a self-proclaimed jihad against the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Splice his attack with the Boston Marathon bombings, carried out by two immigrant brothers who had been in the U.S. for a decade, and it's easy to sense a rising threat from within. One of the bombers was married and had a baby.
The "friendly and easygoing" younger brother was a student. They had seemed to assimilate. Until, of course, they used an al-Qaeda Internet recipe to build a bomb.
On closer scrutiny, Hasan and the Tsarnaev brothers appear to be an aberration. In the dozen years since 9/11, homegrown terrorists have been few. Their plots have been rare, their successes even more rare.
Numbers alone tell a big part of the story. Since 9/11, about 200 people have been indicted or have identified themselves as terrorists in the USA, according to Brian Jenkins, a RAND Corp. terrorism expert who studies and tracks their cases. They planned a total of 42 plots — fewer than four per year. They've managed to bring just three to fruition, and the death toll after all these years stands at 17 — all but four killed by Hasan in 2009.
That same year, another native U.S. citizen and Muslim convert, Carlos Bledsoe, killed one soldier and wounded another at an Army recruiting station in Arkansas. Despite the carnage in Boston, the Tsarnaev brothers killed just three.
There have been narrow escapes, notably the plot by Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Pakistan, to bomb New York's Times Square. The device failed to detonate.
But for all al-Qaeda's recruiting efforts, there has not been much of a yield, considering that 2.8 million Muslims live in the U.S. There is "no army of sleepers, no vast jihadist underground," Jenkins says. In contrast, in the 1960s and '70s, the nation dealt with a parade of terrorist bombings from groups ranging from the far left Weather Underground to the Ku Klux Klan.
The message is that Hasan and his ilk are deluded, dangerous and despicable. But they are just one small segment of extremely violent criminals, and should be dealt with accordingly.
During his trial, Hasan made no secret of his desire to be sentenced to death, so he can be a martyr. Better to deny him his wish and lock him away for life in a tiny cell in a military prison, where the world will forget him but his jailers will never forget his crime.
Meanwhile, the rest of us should feel reassured that this era of terrorism has inspired loyalty not likely to be undone by a handful of fanatics, foreign or domestic.
American born terrorist are being recruited every day. There are some on here who could be their poster child.

Maryland Lawmaker Aims To Make ‘Political Churches’ Pay Taxes – Dear God, What Was He Thinking?
Talk about a holy war – heaven and hell are about to break open, and for good a cause. Many churches and organizations under the guise of The Lord, are playing dirty, dirty with politics, and much of the public is fed up. It wouldn’t surprise any of us if some of the churches were being ‘bought.’ That is their business. The taxes they should be paying to engage in politics, is our business.
According to the newsgroup, the New Civil Rights Movement, after the Tea Party cried and accused the IRS of targeting them, Rep Chris van Hollen (D-Maryland) filed a lawsuit for the federal courts to clarify the IRS obligation under that law.
Jean Ann Esselink writes:
What is the meaning of “exclusively”?
If the Court decides the agency was wrong when they changed “exclusively” to “primarily”, a whole lot of churches are going to have to get their noses out of politics, or start paying taxes. The Mormons, the Catholics and the Baptists alone would be on the hook for a tidy sum. Perhaps we could use the unexpected windfall to restore the Head Start cuts or to replace the food assistance funding in the Farm Bill the Republicans refused to pass. How is that for irony?
This made my day, my week – possibly my month. For much too long churches have engaged in corrupt manipulation, as they promote political propaganda to their parishioners, in the name of the Lord. Come election time, it’s downright blatant as videos are distributed to church members to remind them of the evil-doing Democrats and Liberals, and the saintly pseudo ‘Christian’ Conservatives. I aspire to Christian liberal beliefs with a dash of Buddhism - meaning I strive to live Christ-like with love (and I often fail). It has driven me crazy to see the blasphemous political shenanigans that take place in the churches around this country. These activities have driven me, and many others, from the church to find other ways to practice our faith. I say this because we are out there - groups like the Christian Left, and we are as stunned as anyone by the religious extremists who call themselves Christians and try to force feed their hateful BS to churches or anyone buying (or receiving). Some, not all, churches are tax-havens for rampant government speech. Why not just turn on a recording of Rush Limbaugh during the service. At least he proudly spews his sermon of lies, misogyny, racism, and lgbt-hating bigotry, for all to hear. He doesn’t hide behind the word of GOD. Rather, he hides behind the word of GOP.
The bottom line – If churches want to jump into the arena and play politics, time to pay taxes like the rest of us. Kudos to Chris Van Hollen. You have much support. Let us help you get this done.
I think they should. When they stopped being in the business to save souls and turned into repukes mouthpieces to get votes, they are no longer non-profit. They have turned worshippers away by the thousands in the last few years. Sic the IRS on them. They deserve it like the teabaggers and their so called non profits.
