“Equating homosexuality with sin is simply ignorant. And if one of Kirk Cousin's teammates "came out" as Buddhist, Muslim, Wiccan, or Athiest, can we assume he would be open to being shown what it means to follow THEIR religion?”
Senate Passes Increase Of The Nation's Debt Limit

Senate Passes Increase Of The Nation's Debt Limit

Commented Feb 12, 2014 at 15:49:02 in Politics

“Rising the debt ceiling is NOT an increase in spending or raising the "credit limit" of the government. Raising the debt ceiling simply authorizes the Treasury to make payments for debt ALREADY incurred. It is the same as paying your credit card bill, not increasing the money available to spend. Incidentally, Congress authorizes the spending that contributes to the debt, not the President.”

Obama's $10.10 Minimum Wage Would Fundamentally Change America

Commented Nov 8, 2013 at 23:04:08 in Business

“The minimum wage in San Francisco has been above $10 an hour for two years now, and fast food prices there are comparable to other large cities across the country. And it isn't just "kids" working for minimum wage. Many heads of households work in low wage jobs (Wal-Mart and McDonald's). Raising the minimum wage would allow them to get off government programs like SNAP because right now their jobs don't pay them enough to FEED THEIR FAMILIES.”

“As a recovering alcoholic with 5 years of sobriety, I have learned that two of the symptoms of advanced alcoholism are delusions of grandeur and an altered sense of reality. I believe most members of the Republican House of Representatives are suffering from both.

Cesar Chavez Honored With Google Doodle On Easter, Sparking Religious Backlash

Commented Apr 1, 2013 at 06:51:46 in Latino Voices

“Google honored Cesar Chavez, who helped poor working folks. Bing honored eggs, which make a nice breakfast. Why the outrage over Chavez? I didn't realize eggs were a representation of Christ.”

Mikhel2 on Apr 1, 2013 at 07:24:53

“Easter eggs represent both fertility (mainly for pagans but christians view it as a fertile beginning, that's why the date varies to coincide with the early days of spring, the most fertile season in the north hemisphere) and resurrection for christians. It is during easter when it is said that Christ resurrected, hence its name outside of the anglo speakers: resurrection sunday, three days after he was crucified.”

Commented Feb 17, 2013 at 10:53:26 in Politics

“The GOP keeps lying that this is the President's sequester. The REPUBLICAN HOUSE passed the sequester with the assumption that President Obama would lose the election, and they could do whatever they wanted with it. Now it's blown up in their faces, and they're all running around like chickens with their heads cut off.”

“John Boehner and many other Republican members of Congress own stock in companies that would benefit financially from the Keystone XL pipeline project. Why are they not being investigated or required to divest?”

“they are not the one's who will be reviewing it as she would be”

dragon7380 on Dec 3, 2012 at 08:37:37

“exactly. And Boehner did not invest in the company until AFTER he learned about the Pipeline deal before it became public knowledge. THAT is insider trading. Boehner has a clear cut conflict of interest because of his actions of trying to attach the Pipeline to every single bill he had come out of the House, and he would financially benefit from those actions. Susan Rice has NO supervisor authority over any actions having to do with this Pipeline. Even as Sect of State, their part of this is over. The agreement is in place and ONLY needs the approval of the US Congress. So even as Sect of State she would not have any type of oversight on this issue.”

Drake Mallard on Dec 3, 2012 at 08:27:24

“Oil companies are in the business for profit. Drilling for or refining more crude domestically won't do anything on the cost of gasoline.The fishy issue is why did TransCanada purchase, order and stockpile $1.9 billion in pipe on the hope that the pipeline would be built.NO company invest $1.9 billion in inventory without a firm deal in hand.”
