Will the Supreme Court End Gay Marriage as an Election Is...

Which doesn't refute at all what I said. They do have a lot of opinion programming from a center-left perspective, and make no bones about it. The "news" programming on Fox has a bias that isn't there with MSNBC or any other mainstream cable channel. Fox pretends to be "fair and balanced" when it's nothing of the sort. I'm fine with opinion when it's not pretending to be news.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #271)

Will the Supreme Court End Gay Marriage as an Election Is...

There's a major difference--MSNBC has moderately progressive views in OPINION programming, and presents news from a completely different department. Fox has an overt and intentional far right bias in it's "news" presentation, not just in the opinion shows. They're not doing the same thing at all.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #267)

Obama's plan: 'Deport felons, not families'

Unless they're causing you harm by being gay, and of course they are not, no. And homophobia isn't Christian, so one wonders what "religious beliefs" you hold that you're referring to.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #471)

Ben Carson: Race Relations Have 'Gotten Worse' Under Obama

That's preposterous McCarthyite bilge. This is all done through FOR-PROFIT PRIVATE insurance companies. It's not single-payer, and even single-payer is done through private doctors. It's nowhere close to Communism. Not even vaguely close.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #467)

Obama: Racism, bias in US will take time to tackle

The racist attempts to call blacks CHOOSING to vote Democratic a "plantation " keep failing. Supporting equality isn't "slavery. " Helping the need and "government giving you things" aren't seen as the evil clowns like you see it as, because you've been enslaved by the wealthy to pretend what's good for them is good for everyone. You're a tool.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #153)

The President has failed us

brad-"LOL If anything,Oblamer is throwing blacks to the wolves in favor of hispanics." Because supporting JUSTICE and EQUALITY isn't possible, you have to choose one or the other. "Almost half of ALL abortions in this country are of black children," In fact, none are. An embryo isn't a child. Abortions are more known about when occurring with a public health facility, rather than a private physician, so yes they are more likely to be listed with poor women. And because of racism, poverty is more likely to mean black family. "and,nearly ALL violent crimes against blacks are at the hands of other blacks." Which, again, is a matter of racism and poverty NOT about black people being "natural criminals" or something. And poverty kills hundreds of thousands of people every year, so the white collar crime and rip-offs from the wealthy...mostly white...are just as much violent crime as any other. "Throw in the incarceration rate and illiteracy and it doesn't add up to all that many slam dunk votes." Black people aren't stupid. All these sleazy attempts to get blacks to vote for Republicans will continue to fail. "Thats why Oblamer courts the illegals,gays and the rest of the lowest common denominator voter base." No human being is illegal, and contrary to the lies you've obviously be fed undocumented immigrants cannot vote, nor has President Obama tried to change that. The bigotry that makes gays "the lowest common denominator" speaks for itself, which is also why gay people aren't going to start voting Republican in any kind of significant numbers.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #338967)

Obama, Pelosi rift opens up over spending bill

The President of the United States isn't a Kenyan, he was born in Hawai'i. The US has to have a spending bill every year, it's the law. It's sick nonsense to claim anything was stolen from anyone, racist trash to claim anyone is "illegal " and NO they are NOT being "taken care of." They don't receive services, contrary to the claims of your extremist nutjob masters.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #9)

Obama, Pelosi rift opens up over spending bill

And this from a guy who gets his "information " from extremist right propaganda. Nobody with a brain wants either. These are phony baloney "scandals " cooked up by those who hate the president blindly and will do anything to subvert the will of Americans as stated in two different presidential elections. Don't like moderate Democrats being president? Win the election. Lose the election? You don't get to have one of your Nazis in the White House. Simple as that. These made up "scandals " (the IRS has investigated more groups on the left than the right) show WHY you're not suited for leadership.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #8)

The uncomfortable truth about racism in America

Cat74--"The ghetto dwellers don't think crime is a problem." You're incredibly out of touch with reality. "Ghetto dwellers" are BY FAR the most likely to BE crime victims, to think they don't see crime as a problem is ludicrous. Of course they see it as a problem. "They believe they are entitled to whatever they want, and take it." Not remotely true, but it's funny how you have no problem with rich white people and corporations ripping them off, but when someone steals a stereo so they can have enough money to keep their car paid for so they can get to work, that's a problem. "They have been given everything else, so why not take it." You're in outer space. Absolutely light years from reality. "They've been given everything else"? Uh, no, they haven't. "The people paying the bills need to step back, and give them 1 year to start a business, get a job, or go to vocational school, then no more freebies." So, you'll murder even more people with poverty, even though this has proven a massive failure. Poverty affects millions of children, THEY should be made to get a job? Why "vocational school" but not a real education? Because you don't care about them making a better life for themselves, just getting off the dole as soon as possible so the rich can have another tax cut. And the fact that the majority of people in poverty DO have a job also seems to fly right over your head. "They have to work like everyone else." No, they have to work a great deal harder. The board members who get paid 7 figures to play golf all day don't work like the guy who cleans their offices or the woman who stocks the store shelves work. "Give them a stipend for getting married, not married when your children are born, you get nothing." Says the people who also want to keep birth control and family planning options away from the poor, let alone abortion services. That's insane, and it truly out and out murder of children. If the parents aren't married, we won't help the kids? The idea of forcing a single mom to work instead of raising her children is lunacy. "Then maybe we could civilize them." Go to hell. They are civilized. Racists like you are not.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #133)

Homosexuality and the Bible

This hateful trash of telling gay people they can never have sex isn't Christian, isn't Godly, and isn't right. And unless a gay couple is having sex in your driveway while you're trying to get the car out of the garage, it's also none of your business.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #28861)

Homosexuality and the Bible

No person is an "abomination, " and the idea that an adult, loving gay couple having sex is in any way against God's law is preposterous nonsense. This bilge of "I have no problem with gay people, but they can never ever express their love for one another physically" is cruel and stupid and certainly not Christian in any way.  (Dec 12, 2014 | post #28860)
