“I would bet that Ms. Adams is the type of person that would have supported "separate but equal" policies of the previous century. I applaud the Dallas LGBT community for their light-hearted, non-violent response.”
“I would expect HGTV to make the same decision if the hosts espoused any kind of intolerance, whether it was about homosexuality, race, religion, or a number of other lifestyles. Their choice to not air the show appears to be motivated by a desire to not exclude anyone, something I regard as a traditional American value. Christian extremists think that they can immediately paint anyone that opposes them as anti-American, despite ample evidence that many, if not most, of the founding fathers were definitely not Christian.”

“Flip Benham has been a religious extremist for decades. Check out his "Operation Rescue" and their beliefs.”
“you seem to forget that europeans were pretty bloodthirsty and killed each other with alacrity as well. that is, when they weren't busy conducting crusades or conquering north america. human history is rife with warfare in almost all cultures. my issue is that ann is putting herself above all others, free of any blame.”
“she seems to forget that this land went through an initial "whiting" that i am sure was largely unappreciated by the inhabitants of the time. and she has the gall to call democrats elitist.”

“That's the only honest portion of her comment,compared to her everyone is elitist and she should chew on that fact for awhile: ).”

Fanned! For a largely ignored point by these oh-so-pure-whites. Thank you!”

“Don't blame me. I'm already guilty enough about other things I had nothing to do with, like original sin.”

“I guess people forget that the Mexicans and Indians were here way before the European whites got here. How dare the real natives of America try to live on their own original land.”

It's about preventing "browning."
CPAC and all the speakers there are concerned about "browning."”

“From South Pacific
You've got to be carefully taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.
You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.
You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!”

“She is in the business of selling books and giving celebrity GOP speeches. The more inane, bombastic and controversial the better. You can see how much she enjoys being obnoxious, and wears it as a badge of honor.”

“In Ann's small world Indians are a nagging zyt. It's her world and everyone else is just visiting.”
“She was telling the truth! Neither Obama, Holder, Pelosi, Feinstein, Reid, Schumer, Durbin, etc. ever held a real job and think of themselves as the elite!
If they didn't think that way, they wouldn't make themselves, all of Congress, Unions, Big Business, their donors and at least 2500 others able to be exempt from Obamacare and later subsidized by 70% while making what's left of the middle class and small business liable for this so called affordable healthcare plan! None of them hold themselves liable for anything! Those are the actions of people who consider themselves elite!”

They cherish the sound of it, along with Colt, Winchester, Smith and Wesson.”

“And we will never wash the blood off.
Because sadly Manifest Destiny Is
Alive and Well in the modern GOP.
Just replace "America" with "Corporation"
but it's still "God's Will"”
“legalization also takes away the drug trafficking charges, not just possession.”

“A couple of points on that: 1) There are very few people in prison for marijuana-related crimes at all, including trafficking. Most trafficking incarcerations are for harder drugs. 2) Trafficking only goes away if the black market disappears, which it won't. We know this, for example, from tobacco where there's a thriving, multibillion dollar black market despite legal smoking. It's biggest in states with highest cigarette taxes (like NY), proving that it competes on price.”
“the crux of this decision lies near the end of the article: the state presented no evidence to support their claim that photo ID requirements help prevent vote fraud. not surprising, since there is no evidence to present. that tired cry of alarm that continues to be trotted out is the real fraud here.”
“maybe you should look at this as a form of religious civil disobedience; he obviously knows the rules, but believes they are unjust. there is no reason for gays to forced to sit in the back of the methodist bus in his eyes.”
