“News flash. Maybe that aren't as good of a worker, maybe they are not as smart, maybe they take more time off, maybe they spend more time gossiping, maybe they have to take more time off for babies or children, maybe they cry when things get tough, maybe they are a lot more moody once a month, maybe quit more often to start families.
Now, men have their share of problems too, but the point is they are not the same, never will be the same, so quit trying to act as if they are, and that everything should be equal.
It's absolute nonsense.”

“What is all the fuss about?? Are these chapters being funded by government or college subsidies? If not, then it is no one's business who they choose to allow into their membership. If they want to be racist , that's fine.
Remember this: When you exclude someone simply because their skin color is different from yours, you are most likely the one who is going to lose out. That person might have been the best friend you ever had and you pushed them away for no good reason. Your loss.
So, let them do what they want. It's their loss.”

“And unless the same rules apply to all the black sororities and fraternities then its pretty hypocritical as well...............not that double standard hypocrisy has ever stopped a lefty.”
“I support the bakery's position, however, everything turned out just like it should. The gays won by doing what they do best, boycotting, bullying. That's just how it goes, and that is fine.
However, the hypocrisy of the gay community is simply astounding. You plead for tolerance and acceptance, yet you run rough shod over anyone who dares to disagree with you.
Lastly, let me point out one small detail this group fails to recognize: The fact that I may think what you are doing is wrong according to my faith does NOT mean I hate you. And, just because I choose not to be part of it, condone or accept it does not mean I am judging you for it.”
“Why was this made to be such a big deal by the right wing?? So what if they choose not to meet Obama. Do you really think he cares about them. After all folks they are all three white guys, who most likely have ties to slavery, so you know Obama has no respect for them either. Its a Mexican (oops my bad) standoff.
Bottom line is I agree with them. It is their choice. Frankly, I would not walk across the street to meet Obama because I detest him and everything he stands for. He is doing his best to ruin what once was a great country.”

“Due to some "unfortunate accident," he probably would not live to be kicked out of the country.”
“I would have the same response to that (if asked) as I would to the gay issue. I think it is a sin and we should not condone it. Doesn't mean you have to pay attention to what anyone says, but if you ask the question, don't be offended by the answer.”
“Judgement is not the same thing as knowing something is sinful and not condoning it. I can tell you I don't agree with your lifestyle, and that it is sinful, but that does not mean I am judging you. In fact I have my own sins - that are different than yours-, and I work toward getting that sin out of my life because I know it offends God. Your sin is no no greater or lesser than mine, and therefore I have no right to judge you, but I do have the right to point out your sin, just as you have the right to point out mine when you see it.
People mistake conviction for judgement. They are totally different.”

No you don't have the right to point out anyone's sins. Take care of yours and don't concern yourself with what others do.
BTW...I really don't care if you think homosexuality is a sin. I don't believe it is. But why are you so concerned about something that does not effect you in anyway?”

“I agree for the most part, although as to telling people of one another's sins, Matthew 7:3-5 goes the extra length of saying that we are hypocrites who would point out others' sins rather than focusing on our own.”

“It seems abundantly clear to me that the jury believed GZ to be innocent, and believed his account of the facts, as did the police. As such, while you may be correct that we do not know the specific details of what really happened, we do know that GZ was getting the crap kicked out of him, and that most likely he feared for his life, and had the right to defend his life.
END OF DISCUSSION.”
femtosh on Jul 19, 2013 at 19:08:33
“Not really: three of the jurors (according to J37, who spoke to Anderson
Cooper) wanted to find GZ guilty of either 2nd degree murder or manslaughter. But the "Stand your ground" law left them few alternatives. Even those who wanted to acquit (according to the juror) thought that the law tied their hands. While the jurors testimony, which was generous to Zimmerman, was being aired, four of the remaining jurors issued a statement that they did not agree with her position, and that their own feelings were more complicated. So, far more complicated than you represent here.”

“Yes, you're right: many people have been saying the same thing. It is depressing, and impossible to correct all of the misinformation. But there is absolutely not a shred of evidence to indicate who attacked whom. Not one--well, beyond what Zimmerman says. WHAT WE KNOW is that Zimmerman followed a kid who was sufficiently frightened of him to run. We know this because Zimmerman told the dispatcher that the boy was running. And we know that he pursued him. We know that he forced this confrontation. That Trayvon "attacked" Zimmerman is a figment of your imagination. It might have happened. Zimmerman might have attacked Trayvon. We just don't know.
Another thing that we know is that you are easily inclined to believe that a black kid would be violent.”

A&F survives by attracting customers -- they haven't done so well the past quarter. If A&F has a right to be rude and snide, the people here have a right call them on it. Isn't that how the "freedom" works?”

The people of Oklahoma should demand that their esteemed Senators pay all the disaster relief out of their own pockets and pull themselves up by their own bootstraps if they keep sending people like Coburn & Inhofe to Washington to represent them.”
