“Some of these districts are failing because enrollments are dropping, too. When that's the case, there is no reason to keep them in existence.”

“If we can't treat a few million veterans without rationing care, imagine what would happen with hundreds of millions. No, the VA scandal proves that medical care needs to stay in the private sector.”

“Every major trauma center in the country can handle these types of injuries and they can do it without rationing the care.”

“Reform the VA by opening it up to the private sector. Disband, close or and sell the hospitals. Transfer vet care to Medicare. Enough with the government run behemoth and rationed care. We can act to improve this injustice and we should do so immediately.”

“There was plenty of evidence that the commies were commies, but that's another issue. And Hollywood studios were businesses choosing not to associate with commies. They were not government entities. But since you seem to think a business has a legitimate business reason to not align themselves with certain people than you must also agree that the Colorado cake maker and the Oregon photographer are within their perfect right to not associate with gay clients, since it would hurt their relationships with others. See what a slippery slope we get on when we justify discrimination against those we disagree with?”

Faustus68 on May 10, 2014 at 20:41:31

“Where to start? You presented a false equivalency regarding McCarthyism. Here is the definition: Mc·Car·thy·ism noun 1. the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, especially of pro-Communist activity, in many instances unsupported by proof or based on slight, doubtful, or irrelevant evidence.

So, there's that. and as stated above, the Hollywood studios made their own decisions (albeit under extreme duress) whether to continue to work with accused individuals. There was nothing legally actionable about their decisions. Additionally, I think we can agree, communism was not just unpopular, but reviled at this time in history. Cold War? A studio launching a film written/directed/acted or produced by a suspected communist would have been a huge financial risk. Moral? Probably not, but a reasonable business decision. Cake maker and photographer? Another false equivalency. Both businesses avail themselves of the services provided by the tax base in their community. Sidewalks, parking spaces, utilities, police, fire department,etc., all paid for by all taxpayers in the community, including LGBT. That's the world we live in. The cake maker and photographer don't have to advertise their work with the LGBT community, nor do they need to embrace it, but if they want the benefits of the government in that community, they need to service all of it. Do we need to revisit the Civil Rights Movement? Finally, the brothers would have represented HGTV by the mere nature of being on air. HGTV probably didn't want to be defined by hate.”

“People losing their livelihood for their political beliefs or this case, their religious beliefs. These guys were outed by Right Wing Watch, which the new version of McCarythism. I get it though. The Left never lives by its own set of rules.”

perlusa on May 10, 2014 at 22:04:32

“What you are missing is that these are "beliefs" about OTHER PEOPLE that led to losing the contract. Their beliefs about God, whatever they may be, or their spiritual life, whatever that might be, are not what got them in trouble. That's the core difference with McCarthy, who persecuted people for their personal beliefs, which they had no idea what they were so they had to interrogate hundreds of people to get someone to "tattle" about other people. The parallel seems to be in the other direction, in that people feel justified in attacking gays for issues that are private. people they don't even know. It's not liberals who have different rules, it's that intolerant people don't seem to learn what's wrong about intolerance, even from the most egregious cases.”

“So you thought McCarythism was over blown? The Hollywood studios had every right to fire commie screenwriters, wreck their lives and black ball them so that they could never work again? That's just fine and dandy with you? The word for that is Fascism.”

Faustus68 on May 10, 2014 at 19:12:54

“It is fascism when the government is involved, as it was during the era of McCarthyism. In this instance, it is nothing more than a contract issue between HGTV and the brothers. While I appreciate your attempt to find an equivalency here, it is a patently false one. The government is applying no pressure on HGTV to do anything. Additionally, McCarthy had no regard to evidence or facts in his reckless persecution of individuals. Here, there is no dispute as to what the facts are, and HGTV has decided they, as a business, do not want to do business with the brothers. While it is unlikely that HGTV needed to provide a reason for not picking up the show, from a practical standpoint, the network has a lot of relationships with prominent members of the LGBT community. From a business perspective, it is unlikely they would risk their relationship with someone like Ellen Degeneres in favor of two brothers flipping houses, which, frankly you can find anywhere, sans the hate speech.”

“Right, keep blaming the Bush administration. If you want to look at "inaction" leading up to 9/11, look at the Clinton administration. Bush was only in office for 9 months when that happened. Sorry but 15 years after the fact, blaming Bush is not a viable Democratic party strategy anymore. Nobody is buying it. Same with the economy failures.”

mom72 on May 3, 2014 at 09:34:37

“Look the Clinton administration? The warnings started under Clinton and ramped up in August 2011. UNDER BUSH!

Funny how if we blame Bush for things he is ACTUALLY responsible for it's "liberal strategy", but blaming Obama for things he's actually NOT responsible for is the Conservatives favorite past time and completely warranted.

The only economic failures are that of a Republican congress who cares nothing of the American recovery and everything about not respecting the votes of the American people who chose this President twice along with his proposed agenda, one election of which came AFTER Benghazi and AFTER Republicans tried really really hard to somehow blame him for.

Please keep wasting your time on settled issues that just keep making you look even more ridiculous because in the end, Obama will still be President and the Bush administration will still be the cause of the majority of the grief in America along with the Republican congress who's whole agenda seems to be wasting time and tax payer money in order to hopefully distract from that fact.”
