The One Child policy is morally and socially repugnant. I'm quite surprised that a firm majority of responders here take a non-chalant attitude toward it. We can love America without hating the world.
When the police in your town takes your guns and then fires rubber bullets into your protest crowd, then, perhaps, we will understand a little better. Police need to be professional and restrained. Perhaps the officer was. We don't know. I'm completely open minded to the truth on this. If the officer is charged, then jurors can give him the benefit of reasonable doubt. If he is not charged, then I would expect the good people of Ferguson to continue to demand a rational explanation for the benefit of the officer involved. Conservatives are right to be skeptical of the increasingly militarized police force. I have no part with conservatives that are only skeptical of white on white police violence.
Can I just disagree? Any time I hear "You are not a true conservative if", I'm immediately skeptical. I guess now I know that at least some conservatives consider AE to be bunk. My question is, would they vote for an Obama that agreed with them, or a Reagan that didn't?
I love Ann Coulter. I love this column. But, I still love soccer.
There are no proposed Common Core Standards for Social Studies. What New York does about Social Studies is up to New York. There are better arguments against Common Core than this.
Just reverse the circumstance. Imagine if Acme Corp fired its CEO for giving $1,000 in opposition to prop 8. Mozilla is still a failed also ran in the browser wars. We don't need to boycott an irrelevant product. Their removal of their CEO could have been for escalating obscurity. Instead they made it an issue of political thought. They deserve the bottom dweller position they've secured.
Does opposition to same sex marriage preclude one from creative services? Is the minister to be defrocked for refusing to perform the wedding? I think the baker and the photographer, wedding planner, etc, ought to have the creative freedom to support the sacred events they believe are consistent with their faith. Common sense can prevail.
"By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God" In this instance faith is beyond reason. Jesus said, "You have seen and believed, Blessed are those that have not seen and believed. The fool's errand is to try to convince someone to faith by reason. If you believe in God who you can't see, then everything else is possible. Christianity is only "reasonable" if God exists. It will never be accepted as reasonable by the naturalist. Our love and respect toward non-believers need not be reciprocated. It's foolish to expect otherwise.

I guess its good to know that Social Libs write for TH. I might heave to vote for another Republican loser that tries to twist policy and morality, but, they will get no money or enthusiasm from me. And I'm the real moderate in our party. At least I will go out and vote for him or her. Millions of others will stay home. They have in the last 2 elections in increasing numbers. I don't see any way to change policy without infringing on the rights of religion and speech. Ask the baker in Washingon. This article fits better on HuffPo or MSNBC. You can ask me a thousand ways to change my mind on this. This was about the weakest effort I've encountered.
The "point" will be when Republicans win enough seats to govern. As long as 10 to 15% of the country expect 40% of the elected government to bow to their will, Republicans will continue to be as ineffective as Jimmy Carter.
