“thats a straw man argument. no one suggests its against the law. its just despicable racist speech. and the nba does not want these kids of lowlifes in the public eye. it makes the nba look bad. bad for business. period. just think if you had a business, sir, and your employees could be heard making all kinds of racist comments that offended your customers who now go elsewhere to spend their money. you want your employee to tell you about p.c., bill of rights and free speech???? if sterling does not like how the nba operates, he has no business getting involved in the nba. the nba has rules and he knew it when he bought the team. if sterling wants to make racist comments in the privacy of his own home, no one is stopping him. i hate p.c. too, but this is not pc and has nothing to do with the constitution. this is business.”
“you gotta love the new Yorker. bunch of typical northeastern elitists. the majority of the country disapproves of obamacare, and rightly so, and the roll-out has been beset by delays, incompetence and cancellations of the rules by unconstitutional executive order...yet the new Yorker knows best. but yea- its a great cover. very clever.”

“I love how you conservatives try to get away with including the 15% of the voters who don't approve of Obamacare because it doesn't go far enough in your poll totals as if they agree with you.”
“my mistake. sorry! but god is all over the place in declaration independence, and the writings and speeches of our founding fathers. congress was blessed every day by a minister. none of this, obviously, violates establishment of religion, so no need, in my opinion, to strike god out of pledge. if you do, you mjst delete it from declaration of ind, too, no?”
“thanks for the insult- very intellectual.
check this out, genius, from declaration of independence: the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them...
see? syas god! how about that.
the founding fathers invoked god all the time in their speeches, writings etc. try reading them. a minister blessed the congress every day. did you know that, genius?
what stupid, is you. too bad you cant have an intellectual debate, but resort to insults. you like it?”

“Yeah..nature's God..it's a deist term. It's not specifically referring to the Christian one is it.
And they were deists. Go learn deists actually are.
Oh and by the way..those same founding fathers said "The government of the United State is not, in any sense, based on Christianity." Oopsie, you still lose. Law beats personal opinion.”
“we have "god " all over our currency, declaration of independence etc. obviously, the founding fathers did not consider it "establishment of religion to invoke god in this way". same thing with "under god". this kid of lawsuit is stupid.”

“The Declaration, while a good explantion of why we were rebelling, is not the basis of our government. The constitution is. And usually when God is invoked the Nature's God is used. And the term refers to what can be determined about God through reason not revelation.”

“You mean the term that was place on the currency and into the pledge in th 1950s? I'm amazed how many people are ignorant of their own history.”

“God was added to our currency the same time it was added to the pledge - only 60 years ago or so.”
James Kessler on Sep 8, 2013 at 19:17:09
“God does not appear in the Declaration of Independence. The term "Creator" does but as most of the Founding Fathers were deists, its a deist term.
And the phrase "Under God" was not in the pledge of allegiance for its first 60+ years of its existance.
So what's stupid is your argument.”

“"Under Gawd" was not put on the currency by the Founding Fathers!”
“excuse me, sir. they have full rights. if some ultra-orthodox harrass them, those people are arrested and prosecuted. these are fringe zealots, and these despicable acts are uncommon--thats why its newsworthy. if it happened all the time, it wouldnt be in the news. their behavior has been deplored all over israel. according to your logic, women dont have full rights here in america, since they are yelled at when they go to the abortion clinic.”
“excuse me. i am talking abut the law of the land. they have full rights. if ultra-orthodox harrass women in their communities, they are arested and prosecuted. these are isolted incidents by zealots. you think it happens every day? it's news, precisely because its so rare. if it happened every day, you wouldnt read about it. the vast majority of israelis condemn these stone-throwers. dont comdemn a society based on what a handful of zealots do. otherwise, lets condemn the u.s., too, for all the crazy zealots you read about every day.”
“well, the plane is not hermetically sealed, so as to provide air circulation. the bible itself discuses how things in sealed jars do not get contaminated when in a house of a dead person. so the idea of using plastic hermeticaly sealed to avoid contamination makes perfect sense. it all boils down to whether you believe the bible is the word of god or man. if of god, then applying the idea of a sealed jar to a sealed person is not so far-fetched! well, maybe a little!”
“women in israel have full rights, just like in the u.s. serve in all govt sections- parliament, supreme court, army. ultra-orthodox men and women BOTH have strict modesty codes and dress and interact in ways that bring it to a bare minimum. ultra-orthodox women now work more than ever to support their non-working spouses--(which is a separate problem). i dont understand your beef with the way ultra-orthodox men and women behave among temselves. i agree they have no right to argue or impose on the non-orthodox--maybe thats your beef, and i agree.”
Michael Hausmann on Apr 15, 2013 at 23:28:46
“They do NOT have full rights because their communities (not any government) prevent them from exercising their legal rights. Women are not only yelled out by Ultra-Orthodox Jews. They are also attacked and sometimes stones or shot at. Tell me, are outwards view on these people due to ignorance, dishonesty, or delusions?”

“"i agree they have no right to argue or impose on the non-orthodox--maybe thats your beef "
Pretty much yes, that's my point.”
“ugh. politically correct people never realize how foolishly politically correct they are. im guessing you find chris rock, dave chapelle, lenny bruce, howard stern andrew dice clay etc also all inappropriate and offensive, right? you get all offended at how they make fun of gays, blacks, women, jews etc.”

“yeesh. hard to argue with someone who can only laugh at bill cosby and jonathan winters, (though i admit they are good), but cant stand the others i mention since they offend. never occurs to you, does it, that in comedy, its "no holds barred", and thats what makes it funny? that we can ridicule mercilessly and say things that we dont say in polite company? you really dont get it. oh well. too bad for you. but can you at least shut your hole when others do it and enjoy this comedy? we dont need your idiotic politically correct harangues. by the way, its no secret that those who enjoy the most comedy have the highest iq's. ever hear howard stern on the radio? the guy is smart as hell.”

“that's your response to this idiotic, politically correct nonsense?? you really think this apology is so offensive that mcdonalds has to publish an apology? then you are part of the politically correct problem.”

“No, that is my response to an idiotic post. And I never made any statement about what McDonalds' reaction should be. Recognizing that chronic depression is widespread and deserves better understanding is 'way more than just a "politically correct" action.”
“yeesh. you are so politically correct. imagine if instead of teen pregnancy, it was drug use. you think you'd be crying how these teen drug users are "being shamed?". teen pregnancy, like drug use, is a CHOICE. a CHOICE. a horrible, reckless, idiotic choice that raises the odds of poverty and crime many many times. why shouldnt they be shamed? whats the difference between drug use and teen pregnancy? zero. both despicable choices that need to be condemned.”
“she's totally wrong. its 100% true that if one finishes hs and delays children til getting married, the odds of being poor are in the single digits. this is a classic case of someone who doesnt want to get confused with the facts, and wants to keep barking her agenda. fool”

“Did you even view the video?? She very clearly stated exactly what you posted. Delaying having children & getting an education decrease the odds of living in poverty. "Thou dost protest too much..." Try to step away from your own ideology for a second & listen for a change... Why would anyone think it's a good idea to shame vulnerable young girls?? Could it be the arrogance of the powerful over the powerless??”
“exactly. its pathetic. none of obama's budgets--NONE-have any chance of reducing the deficit, since they do not reform the entitlements. at least ryan and the gop, after ignoring the issue just as badly as the dems, finally had the balls to put true reform on the table. we are headed to california, illinois and ny--all of them heading to bankruptcy due to lack of real reform. and mind you--those states are high tax states, so unlike what the dems say, the answer is not higher taxes.”

“that is their only answer always, the entitlement crowd doesn't pay taxes so they are not alienating their voter base!”
“you're welcome, sir!. the anti-israel bias among the left is bizarre, as israel is a mostly left-of-center country, the supreme court and media very much on the left. most israeli ngo's there are firmly in the left and critical of israel. big human rights organizations in israel, too. israel is also a very green country. the rights granted to minorities, gays, women etc is unprecedented in middle east. so, my suspicion is that the left favors the arabs over the israelis out of anri-semitism, or the typical post-modern hypercritical, moral equivalence claptrap that so many liberals embrace.”
“yeesh. start with wikipedia, then pick up some basic textbooks on jewish history and palestine history. you really dont know the basics, so when you post comments, you sound ignorant. read about when jews first settled palestine. read about josephus' account of the jews and the maccabees. read about jewish life during jesus time. then read when the jews were exiled and what the remaining Jewish community was like. read about the ottoman empire and the british mandate. read about the masacres of hebron by the arabs on early jewish settlers. read mark twain'a account of palestine. read, read, read. you know nothing. and your know-nothingness makes you sound like a dope and an anti-semite. you just ape all the agitprop you read from the likes of the bbc and al jazeera”
“oof. 1) the bbc is one of the most biased anti-israel networks around. i wouldnt believe a word they say.
2) i just googled it. looked at wikipedia too. zero mention of work for israel. zero. jesus- you really are smoking crack! i mean, dont you think that this kind of fact would be publicized if israel killed him? somehow only you know it.”

“Either you are totally incompetent on how to search or you really don't care. This is an excerpt from Haartz:
"Ahmed Jabari was a subcontractor, in charge of maintaining Israel's security in Gaza. This title will no doubt sound absurd to anyone who in the past several hours has heard Jabari described as "an arch-terrorist," "the terror chief of staff" or "our Bin Laden."
But that was the reality for the past five and a half years. Israel demanded of Hamas that it observe the truce in the south and enforce it on the multiplicity of armed organizations in the Gaza Strip. The man responsible for carrying out this policy was Ahmed Jabari. "”
“yipes. you are ignorant. jews returned to palestine, mostly after wwii, and had every right to live there as the arabs. no more. no less. they took no one's land. the u.n. divided the land between the arabs and jews. arabs rejected the plan.
palestine was a wasteland- read mark twain's account of his trip there. jews came worked like dogs to make the land bloom. there were no arabs living in these swamps and wasteland. arab refugees occured during the 1948 war, not prior- they chose to leave their homes. 500,000 jews fled arab lands during the war- you dont see them in refugee camps demanding to go back.
please read some more- you are clueless.”
