“Funny how she mis-understands that the government wasn't involved in any of it. Just A&E and the contract Robertson signed with them.”

“Just because you can legally do something doesnt mean you should, nor does it mean it isnt still suppression of free speech, its just legal suppression of free speech...the hypocrisy of the left using the contract and "it wasnt govt doing it" excuse, then crying like toddlers in a wet diaper when a employer fires someone for a reason they find discriminatory simply because they are in right to work state and legally can. Remember this defense the next time a gay is fired for being gay-in a right to work state a employer has the legal right fire for any, or no reason whatsoever if its contrary to his business ethics or needs. But let me guess...that will be different.”
“Being a cyclist in the Chicago, I have to admit that most of the cyclists who use Milwaukee Ave. (and in general) don't understand the rules of the road and believe themselves to be above it. There isn't much room on Milwaukee and it is a major fairway because it's one of the few angled streets on the north side.”
“Increase the minimum wage, right? Then companies like Walmart would pay living wages to workers and our tax dollars won't have to go towards food stamps and welfare to subsidize low wages. AMIRIGHT?”

“No because most people who are hard workers have never been on welfare.
And those on it now are because Obamacare has caused companies to either stop hiring any new employee's, or have made employee's hours below the threshold that they have to work to meet the Obamacare regulation.
Who could get ahead even if the min wage was raised if you are only getting 29 hrs or less a week?”
“Might as well get rid of those pesky sexual harassment laws in the work place. Those are absolute job killers, with the potential lawsuits and whatnot. #sarcasm”

“If you want to guarantee everyone a fire-proof job, shouldn't we offer job protection to the lazy, and foul mouthed as well?
Obese health trainers?
Convicted felon cops?
Blind commercial pilots?
Pedophile baby sitters?”

“Why stop at only the laws? Get those women out of the workplace altogether! If it's not a sexual harassment claim, they're going on maternity leave and getting paid for free! Or wearing their short skirts, showing their ankles and distracting all the men, reducing their efficiency! Besides, everyone knows a woman only works so she can meet a husband! (also entirely sarcasm).”

“Hell yes. Let's get rid of human rights as well. It cuts into the profits. /S/”
“The free market is a great idea to them, except for the ACA. That's a free market solution. It stinks on all sides and you don't have to be a tea-drinker to not like it. (Though, you have to be a cruel tea-drinker to hate it enough to burn the country down in spite of it).”
“The difference here is that the democrats "philosophy" -- or the ACA -- was passed using actual legal methods thanks to the Constitution of the United States. The law was voted on in congress, passed and signed by the President. It even got the extra step of being verified as constitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States. It went even further and got a gold star from the voters when Obama won the election in 2012, his opponent running on the fact that he would "repeal Obamacare the first day" he takes office and Obama running on accomplishing the ACA. Obama didn't shut down the government and hold us all hostage until the republicans voted for his healthcare bill. It was debated, compromised and voted upon.
In regards to each side's philosophy... that's quite complex, isn't it? I mean, the mere fact that the ACA was crafted from a conservative think tank and endorsed by the Republican party not very long ago. Unless you consider that the only philosophy the republicans have at this point is opposing anything that comes from the President, then you are absolutely right, the GOP has a differing philosophy.”

“There have been many new republicans who did not have a say on that initial vote. Now you expect them to just say "oh ok I was not in office so I should just ignore my belief that this is wrong"... that is not going to happen. And besides that some people were still against it back then and they are going to continue to stand against it now. Just because they did not win the battle at that time does not mean they are not going to keep fighting. Many times that is a great thing, many times it is harmful. But it is their opinions and beliefs that are driving them. So it should not be a surprise to anyone.”
“The "strategy" of the Dems is to not give into capitulation. I whole-heartedly agree.”
Lfwngcons on Oct 3, 2013 at 11:25:49
“And that is great for them and the GOP is not giving in to "government overreach" as they see it. When we talk of philosophy it is impossible to declare either side wrong (other than imparting our own bias to dictate right and wrong). I digress, my previous point is that the GOP is trying to figure out how to make THEIR philophy win while the Dems are doing the same thing. That means this "unique hot mic" is nothing that should surprise ANYONE.”
“Compromising was over 3 years ago. There's no compromise on the law of the land when trying to pay the bills. The GOP is wrong in every possible way. Oddly, the Democrats are right for once and should continue to stand strong on their refusal to bend for the GOP.”

“The prez changed the law as written. Should have gone back to both houses to change modify. So much about following the law as passed”
“"The police groups also make a number of additional controversial claims that marijuana use itself leads to violent behavior, suicidal thoughts and interest in harder drugs."
Total crock. Look at it from a different perspective: people who are inclined to have addiction problems would use marijuana, but not all people who use marijuana are hard drug users or addicts. That's like saying alcohol leads to drug addiction and violence.”
“Hey, I got an idea. Email receipts. Let customers print out coupons they want to use. I never use the coupons, because it's never for things I need and I always toss the receipt in the garbage on my way out the door.”
