Really, this is "progress?" How about, the museum does what it wants, and any little thin-skinned people, like the author of this story, can get offended and not support the museum?
I think this is something that needs to be kept in mind by those who believe that ALL military spending is sacred spending. All areas of government waste money, even the few legit things like military. Cuts can be made everywhere.

Indeed. Buchanan constantly ruins otherwise good articles with his promoting of anti-free market tariffs.
"I often ask myself - what was I thinking all those years?" I can guess what happened. Every time election time rolls around we read columns here at Townhall or listen to radio talk show hosts telling us that "no matter how bad the Republican candidate is, he/she is light years closer to our values than the Democrat is." Based on what you ask? Why their campaign rhetoric of course. No one could honestly point to much of anything either Romney or McCain had actually done that was a move to smaller government, but because they had that precious "R" next to their name, that meant that they were by definition closer to the small government view than the Democrat. Maybe this time around enough of us will stop believing that BS and only vote for candidates that actually have values we agree with.
"But in 2012, the balance shifted. Gay marriage was approved by voters in all four states considering the issue." Or maybe after seeing the vote get thrown out by a judge every time, many of those who would have voted against redefining marriage said "screw it, some judge will throw out the vote if it doesn't redefine marriage, why should I waste my time?" What's the point of playing along with a rigged game?
I agree that it is possible that the woman could be the one taking advantage of the man. It's just given how sexuality usually works in the two genders, it's usually the guy taking advantage. Also yes, this is a (somewhat) free society. So if two people want to have a sexual relationship with no romance, they're free to do so. However, others also have the freedom to condemn them for making that choice. Freedom works both ways.
So, what is the point of allowing people to vote on how to define marriage if every time they vote against redefining it, one judge throws it out?
Given that you can get cash back from the cash portion of the EBT card, food stamp recipients could have been doing this already. This just gets rid of the need to withdraw the cash from some other store that accepts EBT.
I think you have a good point there. When someone says "socially liberal" are they using the real meaning of the word liberal? Or what the word has been hijacked to mean by leftists, which is the complete opposite of the word's actual meaning?
"Just what is the national GOP actually doing about same sex marriage or abortion or anything else that social conservatives care about?" Indeed. We had a supposedly pro-life majority for a time under the supposedly pro-life Bush. Was there even a proposal that put ANY kind of limit on abortion during that time? Not that I recall hearing about.
In my very limited personal experience, people who describe themselves as "fiscally conservative but socially liberal" generally are neither. They don't want to end the welfare state that makes being socially liberal impossible. They'll say yes to redefining marriage and yes to abortion, but no to cigarettes and no to a business's right to freedom of association.
