This thread is living proof of the following assessment.
"Conservatives are regularly exposed to the liberal viewpoint whether they want to be or not. That's not necessarily so for liberals. Imagine the average day for liberals. They get up and read their local newspaper. It has a liberal viewpoint. They take their kids to school, where the teachers are liberal. Then they go to work, listen to NPR which has a liberal viewpoint on the way home, and then turn on the nightly news which also skews leftward. From there, they turn on TV and watch shows created by liberals that lean to the left, if they have any political viewpoint at all. Unless liberals actively seek out conservative viewpoints, which is unlikely, the only conservative arguments they're probably going to hear are going to be through the heavily distorted, poorly translated, deeply skeptical lens of other liberals.

As sanity is in the minority today, I comfort myself with Edmund Burke's thought that "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

I'm only an army of one but I refuse to surrender to the lies and stupidity of Liberalism.

Bill de Blasio On Horse-Drawn Carriage Industry: "It's Over"
BY Erin Durkin
Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio vowed to act quickly to abolish horse-drawn carriages in the city.
"We are going to get rid of the horse carriages. Period,” de Blasio said in response to a question at his press conference announcing his schools chancellor pick Monday.
“It’s over,” he said.
De Blasio said he would work with existing drivers to set them up with alternative vehicles to ferry tourists around Central Park.
De Blasio and advocacy groups who support him say it’s inhumane to make the horses work the dangerous city streets, but drivers insist their horses are well cared for and there’s no reason to end the industry.
Some tourists are flocking to Central Park to take a last ride in one of the horse-drawn carriages while they still can, the Daily News reported Sunday.
De Blasio is going to make Bloomberg look like William F. Buckley.

Black Racism is out of the closet - completely.
It's OK to be a white, honky-hating black racist now because the Magic Negro has legitimized it and Oprah approves of it.
It just shows the incompetence of them as a whole. obama and his friends should have done more to disarm those non-black, ok to victimize people by the honky hating negroes, First.

LOL it's almost like the Gov't Wants to incite a race riot.

Civil unrest so it can better control the majority of lawful Americans who will take to the streets when 17 trillion dollar debt collapses from fraud and greed and It Will when decent people realize what they had in life, their children will not because of it. Those people will react and IS the biggest threat the Government has. The loss of control. Corrupt sons of bitches.

It's not the illegals who think their doing good, living off an anchor baby's welfare or
blacks who end up there because they fail and drop out or jail and the lazy shit white people who live off it.

It's us that won't take a gov't handout to watch out for

They really don't get it. Children don't make a "choice" to be raised in a dysfunctional family. Children don't make a "choice" to be attend third rate schools. Those are circumstances beyond their control.

The only way to end the cycle of poverty is to give disadvantaged children a hand up from preschool through college. By supplementing the wages of the poor and providing early education opportunities, we are narrowing the gap between the haves and the have-nots which, in turn, helps the development of the self-esteem needed to break the cycle of poverty.

Obamacare's good news:

"Since 2010, when the act was passed, real health spending per capita — that is, total spending adjusted for overall inflation and population growth — has risen less than a third as rapidly as its long-term average. Real spending per Medicare recipient hasn’t risen at all; real spending per Medicaid beneficiary has actually fallen slightly.....

The news on health costs is, in short, remarkably good. You won’t hear much about this good news until and unless the Obamacare website gets fixed. But under the surface, health reform is starting to look like a bigger success than even its most ardent advocates expected."

Can't believe you quoted Bill O'Reilly. But glad you're watching Fox.
We can tolerate homosexuality without glorifying it or using gay marriage as a political tool. Gays have been accepted as part of society for a long time. Didn't use to be so.
O'Reilly, like myself, believes gay marriage will dissolve the family unit even more than it already is in this country and around the world. Homosexuality being included in the traditional definition of marriage (one man/one woman) is opening another of Pandora's boxes. Marriage was sanctioned as the foundation of any society - the family unit.
Once we start tampering with that definition, there will be no foundation. Other definitions will soon crop up without a moral compass in society to draw the line somewhere.
You and Bill O'Reilly can believe what you want Carol, but there's not even a scintilla of evidence to back up your assertions that marriage equality somehow damages the fabric of society. It's just a damned excuse to deny citizens of equal rights and protections under the law based on religious bias.
Marriage is a legal contract between two individuals that imposes obligations and provides benefits. Since Federal law grants various benefits to married persons it's wrong to deny them to a certain class of citizens who like everybody else work and pay taxes. That's not glorifying homosexuality Carol, it's extending constitutional rights to those for whom it was formerly denied.

There are gay couples who make great parents. But their children know they're different from other families and it's easy for other children to ridicule them. They also have to grow up telling everyone their parents are either both men or women and hope it will be accepted.
Most all statistics say children are developmentally better off with a father and a mother in the home. Not one man pretending to be a mother or one woman pretending to be a father.
Homosexuality has been around forever and has always been considered by society as outside the norm of a natural sexual relationship.
Everyone now accepts their sexual orientation. But they keep pushing the envelope rather than accepting how far they can push it.
California rejected gay marriage. Can't get more liberal than that state.
Well Carol you're wrong on this too.
Most research studies show that children with two moms or two dads fare just as well as children with heterosexual parents. In fact, one comprehensive study of children raised by lesbian mothers or gay fathers concluded that children raised by same-sex parents did not differ from other children in terms of emotional functioning, sexual orientation, stigmatization, gender role behavior, behavioral adjustment, gender identity, learning and grade point averages. Where research differences have been found, they have sometimes favored same-sex parents. For example, adolescents with same-sex parents reported feeling more connected at school. Another study reported that children in gay and lesbian households are more likely to talk about emotionally difficult topics, and they are often more resilient, compassionate and tolerant. The same concerns that face many heterosexual parents when they are deciding to have children also face same-sex parents including time, money, and responsibilities of parenthood. Likewise, many of the parenting tasks faced by same-sex parents are similar to those faced by heterosexual parents, such as providing appropriate structure for children, while also being warm and accepting, setting limits, teaching open and honest communication, healthy conflict resolution, and monitoring of child’s peer network and extracurricular activities. Some differences may include adapting to different types of family forms, the impact of social stigma on the family, and dealing with extended family members who may not be supportive of same-sex parenting.
There was a study by sociologist Mark Regnerus of the University of Texas at Austin and touted by the religious right Family Research Council that disputes this but it has been widely discredited by the mainstream scientific and medical communities as deeply flawed.

You retards cannot see the shambles the majority of the urban communities are in because of things like fatherless children, promoting the demise of the family killing common sense, a loss of traditional family values, a welfare state that holds the poor in mediocrity, allegiance to the demokRatic party that promulgates the welfare state yet which, 50 years ago, was for segregation and FDR Jim Crow.

No, the deaf, dumb, and blind can't see these things, and apparently you can't either retard.

You fail - miserably, I might add - to recognize many people living in "poverty" are better off than many lower middle class families working their tails off to get by.
There will always be a safety net. No one will ever be denied medical care in this country.
Why can't liberals such as yourself see the obvious rather than cling to a pie-in-the-sky ideology that continues to mislead you?
You can't help people who ignore education as being the pathway out of poverty and choose a lifestyle of drugs and crime instead.
Big government kills jobs and opportunities and encourages dependency and welfare states. Only for political power.
You're full of crap as usual Carol. A great many if not most of those living in poverty are working their butts off at low paying jobs thanks to people like the Walton heirs who maintain their wealth and opulent lifestyles by paying their employees crap wages. They're the ones who people like you pretend not to notice like those that clean up after people at the local mall food court or the overnight office cleaners.
You're assertion that poverty is caused by drug dependence is totally bogus. During the past year, the state of Utah has spent over $30,000 giving drug tests to welfare recipients. In that time period, only 2.6 percent of those tested were found to have used illegal substances — well below the national use rate of 8.9 percent.
So go ahead you faux Christian keep blaming the poor for their plight. Jesus would be proud.
