“Sweetie, they run a cake shop not a philosophy department or a divinity school. If they don't like the buying American public or the states non-discrimination laws they can move to a de facto theocracy like Afghanistan.”

“Or their rights not to be coerced into morally problematic commerce could be acknowledged. Would you cater for the Westboro Baptist Church? Like I said, your material cooperation in their loathsome activities would be remote, if that, but I think it would still weigh on your conscience to be involved in their activities to any degree. So it is in this case.”
“She has not come out as gay, as this article states. She's previously been exclusively in heterosexual relationships and now she's in one with a woman. That would suggest she's bisexual. It's for her to decide, not the headline writer. Either way, I support her.”
“Loudly announced kindness isn't really kindness.”

“How is it not? The waitress still got 200.00. It matters more what the receipient got out of the deal then what the giver got out of the deal.”

“Nonsense. Donors get their name plastered all over PBS, give a large enough amount to a school, and a building will be named after you. Give $200 to a waitress and get lots of clicks on your YouTube channel. It's all good, and it may inspire some more generosity in others.”

“Yet I fell anything that brings joy and happiness is a kindness, no matter the intent.”
“Republicans are TERRIFIED we'll like Obamacare, the way we do Medicare. Once we see what the ACA actually is, when people understand that Obamacare is first and foremost about getting health insurance, they are going to like it. This nut is speeding that day with his blatant scaremongering and blaming the victim.”
“GOP to Nation: Give us everything we want or we'll destroy the country.
I hope they realize they're looking at a Democratic controlled House in the next cycle. The GOP couldn't be trusted to organize a drinks session in a brewery now.”

“IMO the USA is better served by not having both houses and the executive office controlled by the same party. . . HOWEVER, if the GOP does not get back to its better half, it is likely this will happen.
The Tea Party mantra has driven millions of former GOP supporters [like myself ]to the other side and this will continue until something changes. . .
So the GOP has a choice, follow the same rhetoric of the past 10 years and we'll have what you predict OR the GOP will get a dose of common sense. . . who knows???”

“They are bound together by their racism. Bottom line is, they know that once the ACA is fully implemented and realized by their base, they will be seen as traitors by their own followers. If this bill is so bad, they should be wishing for its implementation to prove that they are right. What a sham of a party! Those poor rednecks who fall for their BS will be the first to take advantage of the benefits of the ACA. They call it Obama-care just to remind them that their racism should be the measure that counts as they ignore the benefits of the act. When they claim that the majority of Americans don't want the ACA, they fail to remind their followers that Obama won his second term by 6 million votes because he supported the ACA. Those republibaggers who are already benefiting from the ACA have slowly begun to voice their delight. Boehner and the Canadian/Cuban are going to sink their ship without life boats. That's fine as far as I am concerned...”
“Yes, if you think medical care for all citizens is "socialism" -- you funny old-fashioned thing, you. But every capitalist country in the world has universal health care for all citizens. Except one. Guess which one?”

“Will he want to have a 'conversation' with the KKK about the use of the n-word? What a transparent a-hat. Dislike. Rap's sexual politics and field of reference is so mid-20th century. He'd fit right in on Mad Men.”
“That's weapon's grade homophobia dressed up like mommy-talk. She's an aloof childless lesbian. That's Maureen's message. Oddly enough it's what she's been called herself on many occasions. She should know better than to cast aspersions.”
“This ruling is harming America, not protecting it. It underlines the poor and the marginalized are prosecuted and the rich and the politically connected are not.
The torturers and murderers at Abu Ghraib walked free, no charges; the bankers that almost destroyed American capitalism where never charged. But this clearly troubled and naive young man is hounded, mistreated, isolated and prosecuted for revelations that did not lead to the death of anyone and who contributed to the end of the wars.”

“And that's why America doesn't deserve Bradley Manning. It's not good enough for him, and his treatment makes me want to expatriate.”
