Colo. gay discrimination alleged over wedding cake

And the Woolworth's lunch counter didn't have to use their talent to recognize, celebrate, support, participate in or celebrate black people, huh? There's no such thing as "Gay marriage." They are just marriages. And a business open to the public does not have the right to discriminate against these couples any more than they have a "right" to put a "whites only" sign on the door.  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #31497)

That darn activist constitution! By the way, I've read the dissent, and it's totally nuts, extremism and trying to use the court to deny basic human rights to people they don't like. I can get that kind of slop on hate radio every day.  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #7398)

House GOP floats debt limit alternatives as deadline looms

First of all, it's not "his" domestic spending, it's OUR domestic spending, our nation, our responsibilities. Secondly, this is about some remarkably irresponsible actions by the congress in this POS bill, like banning alternative fuels and refusing to close bases that we don't need. The right never stops overspending on pentagon pork, and they love painting Dems as "weak on defense" if they don't go along. Were this a priority for them, they'd pass a clean budget THEN try separately crap like blocking the closing of Gitmo...but they won't because they know it won't work. If this does cause harm to our military and its members, the blame lies squarely in the House GOP "leadership " Who'll be weak on defense then?  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #17)

Fiorina: 'Boo hoo, Mrs. Clinton'

Sorry, Senator McCarthy, but there's no liberal bias in the real news. It's a scam so that people choosing ignorance like yourself can pretend there's no global warming in spite of a mountain of proof that it's real. You pretend reality has a liberal bias so you can just create your own.  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #44)

Nobody "admitted " this because they're hateful, bigoted falsehoods. 9/11 WAS NOT a "Muslim attack," there was nothing Muslim about it, it violated the most basic tenets of Islam. Over half a dozen complete investigations have shown there was NOT "ineptitude " by Clinton in Benghazi. Still just terrified of the 2016 election actually being about issues and qualifications, aren't you? If my candidates were Donald Trump or Ben Carson, I would be, too.  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #227)

'Fox News Sunday' to Host Kentucky Senate Debate

Google this (NOTHING this moron says is actually thought up and written by him) and it's word for word from the viciously bigoted Michelle Malkin, and Breitbart, and over 200 other blog posts and message boards like this. Thinking for yourself is just not what they do.  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #232649)

GOP lawmakers threaten to scuttle post-Benghazi security ...

Dear God you're misled. There is no liberal media, Hillary is the victim of an ugly attack machine she doesn't have one, Gowdy is part of that attack machine with "investigatio ns" of something that's already been over-investigated, you clearly have no interest in the truth whatsoever. If you view immigrants as "invaders " one must ask to what tribe do you belong? It's not "against Israel" to reduce the threat of Iran, or to question the war crimes of the extremist government of Israel. Sadly, Hillary hasn't done that because for all your inane bleating about her being so "liberal " Hillary is, in fact, a moderate.  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #4)

Why Not Second-Class Citizenship For Illegal Immigrants?

KKK lies. They are NOT here to "get freebies," they are here to EARN a living by working. They're not "thieves, " they're not stealing one damn thing. "Why can't they enter legally" a huge percentage of them DID, and while paperwork was supposed to be extended it wasn't because of the fact you keep ignoring in the name of bigotry--THE DAMN SYSTEM IS BROKEN. There was universal support for reform, both sides knew it was badly needed, but then the hate groups figured out they could exploit cowardice and ignorance of the nativist crowd and pretend undocumented immigrants ("Turn them into illegal aliens, that's much scarier!") were causing grave harm to "real Americans" (read: white people) Fixing a broken system is what's needed, not hate of people who came here for the same reason all our ancestors came here, so their kids will have a better life than they have. There is exactly zero reason except greed and bigotry to deny them that.  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #71)

Why Not Second-Class Citizenship For Illegal Immigrants?

What the hate groups you're foolishly listening to haven't told you is that undocumented immigrants DO NOT get food stamps or "free whatever" Not only do they NOT get Social Security benefits, they don't get Social Security even though many pay into the system. There are billions of dollars they've paid in that they'll never see. As for "Free education" it's a vile falsehood to claim ANY child doesn't "deserve " education. It's a human right, not something that needs to be "earned. " But put that aside and just be pragmatic--what exactly do you think happens to millions of children who have no education at all as they get older? It's not only cruel, it's stupid, to try to deny educational rights to children who haven't chosen to come here. Education under any circumstance is an investment that saves us money in the long run.  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #70)

Senate set to vote on sanctuary city bill

No person is illegal. And opposing the bigotry and discrimination of the far right has nothing to do with money, it's about it being wrong. What you ignore is that real reform of the immigration system would address the problem, and was supported by both sides until the hate groups stepped in and falsely turned reform into "amnesty.

'Fox News Sunday' to Host Kentucky Senate Debate

And the desperate attempts to not make the 2016 election about issues and qualifications continue, those constantly slinging mud and cheap attacks at Hillary KNOW they lose, and lose badly, if this election is actually about who's a better candidate. They can't understand that the whole world doesn't share their blind, stupid hate of Sec. Clinton and gets information from credible sources, not hate radio and nutjob blogs. They're going to have a very bad year next year.  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #232638)

I'm sure this hateful trash is met with approval at your local Klan meeting, in the real world it's a load of bunk. These marriages are as real as any other. Nothing's being "perverted " by same sex couples marrying, bigots like yourself are perverting the meaning of marriage.  (Oct 22, 2015 | post #7374)
