Rants

SEVENTY-FIVE thousand dollars to find out where the Chattanooga gangs are. Just ask the police department!

OBAMA IS AN economic genius. I should take the risk of investing in the stock market to have dividends taxed at 40 percent? No way!

ONE SURE WAY to improve education is to let teachers teach instead of making them jump through silly hoops!

WITH GOVERNMENT'S role in our lives increasing daily, we are approaching the attitude of medieval Russian peasants -- make us your slaves, but feed us!

ONE AND A half million dollars for a roundabout at Jenkins and Shallowford Roads that will back up traffic four ways. The light worked.

WHAT BENEFITS package my employer offers me is none of the government's business. It's not about contraception.

HIGHER TAXES or less benefits, which is it? Because you're going to have to pick one.

SKILLERN'S VULGAR tirade is inexcusable. He acts like "Boss Hog" and wants to be a Chicago Richard Daly and control the entire county.

SOCIAL SECURITY is underfunded because of irresponsible mismanagement. The government solution is more mismanagement by lowering funding. Brilliant thinking!

IT IS REALLY not that hard. Kids go to school where they live, not across town. If parents don't like it, move.

HOW DO YOU like Reagan's middle class? Less government, fewer labor unions, and lower wages. Sucker!

Russian peasants demanded to be fed? Hardly, they were doing the work of food production.

Or do you think the Boyars were doing the farm work?

Not hardly.

"Pennsylvania muslim judge rules in favor of Sharia law"

That's right....Google it if you don't believe it.

Islamic Sharia Law trumps the US Constitution in Pennsylvania USA and were worried about crap like this???? You better wake up America before the beheadings begin!

Too bad all the stories come from blog posts and conservative rant pages.

here, check this link out:

HAHAHAHA. You sure your not "Happywithdimbulbs"??? You're proving one website wrong with another WEBSITE? LOL...yer an idiot dimbulbs.... What makes YOUR blog post/website better than all the rest? Because it's a liberial bleeding heart site? hahaha. Thank you for the laugh this evening. I've been very bored. Several of us are here reading your retorte. You are a HOOT...a HOOT I SAY!!!

Well, if you want to say they're BOTH invalid, fine with me.

But if you noticed, the site which printed the rebuttal originally was the Volokh Conspiracy.

You're calling them a liberal bleeding heart site?

Now that's something you should send to them, they'd enjoy the laughter it would give them.

But hey, if you care that much, you can go look up the judge yourself, and contact him if you want his side of things from him directly.

Get your friends to chip in for gas money.

Happy, looney tune sage1 just regurgitates the first thing he can pull up online to support his cause. Can't count on letting facts and the truth get in the way. I read the story about this judge last week or before. There's nothing in his ruling about Sharia Law. In fact, we can all suspect sage is just regurgitating some he has heard, and in fact knows nothing about Sharia Law or even American law for that matter.

excerpt from judge:

Before you start mocking someone else’s religion you may want to find out a little bit more about it. That makes you look like a doofus…

Here in our society, we have a constitution that gives us many rights, specifically, First Amendment rights. It’s unfortunate that some people use the First Amendment to deliberately provoke others. I don’t think that’s what our forefathers really intended. I think our forefathers intended that we use the First Amendment so that we can speak our mind, not to piss off other people and other cultures, which is what you did.

It's about respect, sage1. Freedom of speech; freedom to express yourself doesn't give anyone the right to act a damN fool; disrespecting others.

Remember how those Christians went beserk in that town when it was time for a black guy to play the role of Jesus in an Easter play? Or when those other Christians went beserk when that artist used elephant dung on a portrait of the Virgin Mary? In his country elephant dung is a sign of honor. American Christians, however, didn't see it that way. They saw it as an offense to their religious beliefs.

LOL...are you always so easy to spin up jjmez? You're just like DimBulbs.....Freedom of speech is either what it says, or it isn't. The man was assaulted and choked from behind and you say he deserved it, so no crime of assault occured, and the athiest was guilty? LOL...you are really joking, right? Stupid or not (a matter of opinion really) he did not break any AMERICAN laws.

Then you say freedom of speech gives no one the right to disrespect others? Again I call BS. you're so laughable.

If this is true, then why are you belittling the Christians in your last paragraph? According to your logic, if their beliefs were disrespected, they had every right to have attacked those mean people and beat/choked them and the artists/actors should have been found guilty of disrespect just like the zombie guy....RIGHT?

What about flag burning? Now theres some disrespect for you. These acts disrespect everything America is and all who have fought for our rights. If anybody needs their butts kicked it's people that burn the flag but it's a protected act. Heck, even Obama said Terry Jones (preacher in Florida) had the right to burn the Koran under the freedom of speech laws, just not the smartest thing to do and that's because of the worlds fear of the radical Islamists. I suppose you support the ones killing our soldiers in Afghanistan over the Korans that were burned too, huh? Me oh My...aint' you a nice one? hahaha.

You're all wet jjmez. Go change your diaper.

Man if that was the only amount they spent in Los Angeles to combat the same problem it would be a nightmare.
