“TYFON FOODS - I LOVE the hypocrisy here. Jesus (remember him? - the namesake of Christianity and your Savior) would never have eaten any pork or any animal not slaughtered in accordance with Jewish law. OOPS!”
“you appear to have no appreciation for the reality of being a young player on a professional sports team. My children never missed any voluntary practice - THAT is what separates the men from the boys. You are great with definitions, but totally lacking in reality. Stick to the books and stay off the field.”
“you have no idea what you are talking about. NONE. The "in state" tuition (who applies to the vast majority of their students) is less than a fifth of that amount. PLEASE don't come in here and waste our time with your ignorance.”
“I just can't subscribe to the notion that the fate of mankind hinges on any particular religious text....mankind did fine before there was ANY organized religion.”

“correction: "first being tormented slaves for the pharaohs, then becoming free and starting to "indulge" themselves by sacrifices, worship of deities, and so on. Hence Moses became a messenger for God...to spread the message, "hey! don't do that, it will not lead to survival of your kind!"
Ok..hope I have showed you religious texts have driven us a long way from the terrible past. We still have problems in the world, but NOT as bad as it could have become with no "laws" set in place.
Like I said, I am a historian, so I look at the timeline of humanity.”

“Oh, and that was BABY daughters in the sand...this was the catalyst for the Quran, just as the Hebrews first being tormented slaves for the pharaohs was the facilitation of the ushering in of the Torah and 10 commandments. Look into history and see the connections.”

“You should look into history. Pagan arab tribes were literally burying their daughters in the sand before the Quran came down...they simply did not know any better.
I feel that God is Law, an universal balancing measurement, not a man, but a conscious universe that when evil reaches a tipping point for mankind, then the messages, signs, messengers, prophets, and books come to experience in the physical world, as a means to set us on back on track.
Because God is LOVE and wishes to create equality, peace, unity, and a fruitful existence for all creations...the only requirement is belief in it to experience this. Kinda like the "secret' or the idea thoughts create reality.”
“Pro and collegiate sports are a different world. No rookie should be skipping voluntary practices. Period.”

“You must not know the meaning of voluntary or that it was written in the CBA that those workouts were voluntary.
Voluntary:done, given, or acting of one's own free will
CBA:Collective Bargaining Agreement: The contractual agreement between an employer and a Labor Union that governs wages, hours, and working conditions for employees and which can be enforced against both the employer and the union for failure to comply with its terms. Such an agreement is ordinarily reached following the process of Collective Bargaining. A high profile example of such bargaining happens in the world of professional Baseball.”
“that and the electorate agreed with the argument that the additional costs of such disclosure might be burdensome.”

“As my post above shows, all food companies make numerous label changes every year and never complain of the cost or the burden of gaining government approval of those labels.
This is your classic red herring meant to distract from the fact that the GMO producers just don't want you to know.”

“Additional cost was a red herring. They already have the cost of labelling, they just don't want people knowing what kind of crap they're eating.”

“the electorate was convinced by misleading advertising through a massive spending campaign that did not provide actual facts but scared them into thinking it would lead to huge additional costs; without discussing the costs that GMO actually puts on all of us in various ways, including potential health and environmental costs that we wind up having to deal with. The opponents outspent those favoring the bill something like 2 to 1 and "money talks" in a major way as we all know.”

“and we agreed with science. Seems the only argument you anti-gmo folk have left is that ...shocker here...those who sell gmos spent some money on the issue...well so did your "organic" friends....most made up their minds based on facts...so eat it..”
“I agree that skipping voluntary practices as a newer player is something that should be addressed, but I would have to say that death threats are not exactly the bet way to bring someone "into the fold". Just bad judgment!”

“Say I'm your boss and I say there is overtime sheet and it's voluntary and you decide that you want the weekend off so I your boss tell one of your co-workers to get you motivated so you want to work OT that well was voluntary. Does that sound right to you?”
“Your statement here about Planned Parenthood is simply incoherent. But I thank god for men like the Coocher as well - as it makes it that much easier for the Democrats and other progressive candidates to win office.”
