So, Bigtime, isn’t that just like Gordon Klingenschmitt of “Dr Chaps” fame (anti-gay/ anti-abortion/ anti- Obama crusader) that was a chaplain in the military when he used his military uniform in protest against military policy when this is directly against military conduct rules and that the US military wouldn’t allow so he is now having an appeals hearing in Washington, DC, after he was discharged in this on this matter? Yet it was okay for him to use his military experience to become a State Senator until he lost his re-election bid after his Dr Chaps comments became too outrageous? How does this make Klingenschmitt any less of a veteran? How is this any different than Mikey Weinstein using his legal degree to advance anti-religion agenda with the military? Again, it’s a “do as I say and not as I do” situation with you conservatives.
Update August 25th: In announcing yesterday that they were suspending Hope Solo for 6 months, the US Soccer Federation summed it up quite nicely...
"Taking into consideration the past incidents involving Hope, as well as the private conversations we've had requiring her to conduct herself in a manner befitting a U.S. National Team member, U.S. Soccer determined this is the appropriate disciplinary action."
so now we are on the #1 teabagger list of cities... and will be flooded with more classless, ignorant and cheapass teabaggers around here... greeeeeat.
"freaking teabagger mentality is killing this town"
Actually, we're one of the most desirable cities in America, make "Best of..." lists on a regular basis and people reloctae here in droves because of the climate, cost-of-living, crime rates, recreational opportunities, etc.
The only deficient "mentality" is from self-absorbed, mypopic regressives that need Big Gov to provide their thoughts, words, deeds and cash, so they can remain happily detatched from any "heavy mental" lifting; thanks for demonstrating this yet again.
One thing to remember about Mikey and his crusade against the Air Force Academy. He used the system to obtain a free law degree only. This is not a combat vet, not someone who served our country in it's defense. He simply became an Air Force lawyer using taxpayers money. Now, instead of using that degree to honorably serve the rule of law, he formed this non-profit group (from which he gets paid very well) to avoid having to do any real work defending clients or prosecuting cases which would require real effort on his part. We can certainly understand his reluctance to offer prayer... not many life threatening moments sitting behind a desk in Washington. But hey, it's even easier now, fill out some paperwork and threaten a lawsuit and settle... easy money. Can't say to blame him, that's the system and he takes advantage of it but don't be fooled that this is an honorable Air Force veteran, standing up for comrades in arms. This is a easy money making scheme picking low hanging fruit and riding the system like he's done over his entire career.
U.S. Department of Labor Policy Statement on Harassing Conduct in the Workplace The Department of Labor plays a critical role in contributing to the nation's economic future. As such, we should incorporate the strongest and best workplace practices in order to effectively serve as a model for employers. As Secretary of Labor, I fully support the Department's strict prohibition of harassment. We must maintain a work environment that is free from unlawful harassment and where all employees are treated with dignity and respect. The Department's policy strives to prevent harassing conduct from reoccurring or to eliminate harassment before it becomes severe or pervasive enough to violate the law. The Department defines harassing conduct as any unwelcome conduct, verbal or physical, based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, age, disability, genetic information, parental status, sexual orientation, or political affiliation or belief, that either: can reasonably be considered to adversely affect the work environment, or results in an employment decision affecting the employee and is based upon the employee's acceptance or rejection of such conduct.
Harassing conduct has no place in the Department; therefore, we apply this policy equally to DOL employees, applicants for DOL employment, and contractors. Harassing conduct by managers, supervisors, or employees, including contractors, at any level, will not be tolerated. Any employee who believes that he or she has been subjected to, or has witnessed, any harassing conduct should report the matter promptly to a person in their supervisory chain, their Agency EEO Officer, or, for regional office employees, the Regional Administrator of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management (OASAM) in the region where the conduct took place. Similarly, any applicant who believes that he or she has been subjected to harassing conduct during the process of applying for DOL employment should report the incident to the EEO Manager of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management.
Weinstein is a Christ-hating bigot, no more. No champion of freedom, he's singled out one religion to eradicate it wherever he chooses. Government officials do NOT give up their rights to free expression of religion, just like everyone else...military included. Those rights they enjoy are the same ones we fight and die for when called to do so. If military members choose to have the Quran, the book of Satan, or the Talmud on their desk, no one would care...but, if they did, shouldn't it be Weinstein that's leading the charge to remove it? But, alas, he wouldn't because it's not representative of Christ.
I went to the GOP Fair
A big orange baboon was there
The overgrown chump
Said his name was Trump
And spoke with a flatulent flair
Awesome cheese! We just bought green chili goats cheese from both suppliers at the little grocery store in Aguilar. I think it was called Ringo's. We will be stopping in every time we pass by the exit from now on. I encourage you to do the same. We also bought some green chili Italian sausage, house made. It went into a wonderfully spicy lasagna. Enjoy!
Google Tiffany Huntz' name. She has nudes all over the internet. No credibility!!!!
I went to the fully-accredited for-profit University of Phoenix and I can honestly say I received an exemplary education and it was much better than any education at any not-for-profit state public universities I have attended. I learned amazing skills and consider myself a scholar who is published and notable in his field. The University of Phoenix curriculum was rigorous, meaningful, relevant, and applicable. Not all for-profit schools are "bad" and many schools are changing and adapting to the new rules, for the better! Oh, and let us not start a new form of discrimination where we discriminate against for-profit graduates. These are some of the hardest working Americans I know! And those who complain about not finishing UoPx… they could not handle the rigor. Do not ever undermine anyone’s education. I love the University of Phoenix, enrolling students since 1976, and so do its 1,000,000 Alumni!! Finally, DO NOT forget that the University of Phoenix educated the non-traditional students and I thank the University of Phoenix! The University filled a demand where “traditional” academia would NOT!
I am a progressive pagan and I would be ok having the AHA pay taxes along with all religious organizations, churches, political non-profits and any other organizations that brings in an income.
I do disagree that I want to replace God with Government. To me they are separate entities that have differing functions, and it is completely illogical to an atheist. How can an atheist replace God with Government, to them God does not exist. So, there is nothing to replace.
...and this comment that progressivism is "A religion that tells people it's ok to steal, covert, and murder for the greater good." I don't even know how to make sense out of that, but if the source is Steve Deace, well that explains it, and not even worth debating.
Unless they are involved in Progressive Politics longtooth. Right??? Will the American Humanist Association start paying taxes??? I doubt it cause they carry the water for the Progressive agenda as well. Progressive is not just poltical ideals, its also a Religion. A religion that tells people its ok to steal, covert, and murder for the greater good.
"We need to realize progressivism isn't a political ideology. It is a cult. A heresy that seeks to replace the church with its own religion. Replacing God with government. You can't defeat a heresy with a political party. Especially when the leaders of both parties are adherents to it to varying degrees. Only the church is capable to defeat a heresy. Progressivism is the heresy of this age."-Steve Deace
So at CTU, only 16% graduate and the average student sinks with $35K of debt.
Makes perfect sense. Ain't capitalism great?
Dave Beckwith: While you are correct about conflating the two pieces, Amendment 69 is not the solution. In simple terms, Colorado can't afford it. Health begins with the individual, not the state and not the insurance companies.
Larimore Nicholl: What makes you think she isn't?
Bob Kinsey: Channeling Adam Smith, champion of the free market, to call for the election of the watermelon Greens, who never met a free market they didn't hate, is disingenuous and completely ridiculous. They aren't another choice, unless one wants Hillary and Trump on steroids instead of simple common sense. That's yet another reason why the only sane and rational choice is to vote for your freedom and vote Libertarian.
Sally Alberts: The Hillarbillies are no better. Yes, America has gone mad. And you can blame both Democrats and Republicans for it, because they both are guilty of causing it and continuing it.
So we have a useless Clintonite incumbent in Lee, a Trumpster Diver in Forth, and a Libertarian in Norman Dawson, MBA.
I'll take the MBA Libertarian.
When even the liberals think it's bad, it's bad.
Vote NO on 69.
Or, they could take a different approach and run the PD like the FD and keep them in the station until a call comes in.
