The rancher who said that Black people were better off when white people could rape them and sell their kids to other white people for profit.
Well then it must be true, a guy who converted his job title to his first name said it. I wonder what my cousin, Bricklayer Johnson, thinks or my sister, Realestateagent Lawson.
There are thousands of ranchers in the country who pay their fees. Bundy is like an Occupier in Zuccotti Park, trespassing and mad because he can't have his way.
If he's a kook on race then maybe he's a kook on property rights, too.
A common argument against amnesty for the undocumented is that it isn't fair to those who follow the law and wait their turn. What then, does this say about Bundy's illegal grazing and the ranchers who pay their fees? If I were an honest rancher who followed the letter of the law, then I would look at this guy like a bum.
The rule of law is that it's Federal land and you can't use it without paying. I can't open a Starbucks at Yellowstone just because I want to.
What John Hawkins is doing with this article is exactly right. If you disagree with a company leaders opinions and decisions strongly enough, boycott them. Then, use any public forum available, from pulpits to social media to tell people why. Then, hope for results due to a groundswell of public outcry. But John, don't get upset when people who disagree with you take the same approach. Because you are complaining about what happened at Mozilla, but what happened to their CEO was a result of boycott, public outcry and a groundswell of support that influenced the board to take action. So you agree with the tactics that got this CEO fired, but not the reason, so you are for some reason outraged. Because you are a whining, self victimizing hypocrite.
Thanks for your interest in my city's safety, but an ounce of research would have told you that the first concealed carry permits were not even issued until March. Aldo, the murder rate has been on the decline for the past almost two years, the first quarter of 2014 is just a continuation of that trend. I am not opposed to concealed carry or gun ownership, I plan to take advantage of our newly relaxed laws myself. But crappy journalism and omission of facts to prove a point should have no place in this debate.
Republicans decry the "food police" when they want to regulate and put warning labels on pop, but want to be the food police when it comes to what people spend SNAP on. They don't want the poor using it to buy unhealthy food, but don't want them buying healthy organic salmon. Just because it comes from tax payer money doesn't mean we get to have a say of what it is spent on. Our tax dollars pay politician's salaries, defense contractors shareholders and oil company subsidies, but we don't have any say on how they spend these benefits. Don't let a small percentage of fraud in food assistance programs influence your compassion for feeding the poor.

The Tea Party Turns Five

It's surprising that the Tea Party is just now turning 5, considering that they've been acting like 5 year olds this whole time.
"Now, the only time Boehner didn’t keep his promise was in 2006" Yes, when he didn't commit suicide after voting to raise the minimum wage.
