The only spittle flecked rage and rants ,i see on these posts, emanate from you.
Chill, your gonna have a stroke.
Let me see here... right wingers HATE Mexicans because they are all criminals, right? Hate them. The anger and venom that buoys Trump comes from roughly 25% to 45% of all Americans, they hate these criminals pouring over our borders and taking our jobs and some other mumbo jumbo. Raping and drugs and so on and so forth. They are criminals.
Yet, they come to work. They work because they're hired by companies who want cheap labor. It's a crime to employ an illegal. Ronnie Raygun signed that into law when he amnestied several million illegals in the mid-80s.
So... conservatives, where is your spittle-flecked anger at the good conservatives who hire this cheap labor? They are criminals. They are THE CAUSE of these refugees to come here to find work. I'll wait patiently while you throw yourselves into jail.
Screeching about illegals is just trolling to get the low-information, jingoists animated and furious.
Know what Trump's half-baked solution is? Keep 'em here. "They're already working and productive." So. fucking. funny.
You right wingers are hilarious.
You won't send to jail the criminals who pay the illegals. You want a GIANT government project to build a wall to keep them out, and a GIANTER project to round 'em up and send 'em back. Ha... you'd NEED to institute FEMA camps and provide soldiers extra-martial powers to unilaterally abduct and detain citizens and non-citizens alike to sort out later. You WANT this. DEMAND it. You're all so funny. It's hilarious.
Know what you could do to keep them in Mexico, like that is for some reason the most important thing in the world? Help to improve Mexico. Live in a large, interconnected, complex world. Nah... you won't do that.
Endlessly amusing, you guys.
It isn't 'nutso' to view illegal immigrants as refugees instead of denouncing them as outright criminals.
Perhaps if we had a reasonable path to citizenship it wouldn't be such a 'problem.'
Kid Rock's early stuff was good. The stuff before he decided that carrying a Battle Flag and hanging out with Hank Jr and Gretchen Wilson made him a Southerner.
"The fact that you are hung up on categorizing them as criminals because they are crossing an imaginary line out of desperation shows how little regard the GOP has for them. Or anyone really."
That is logic?
Well hell.. why should those close to the "imaginary line" get entry over all the other people on the planet? Every country on the planet has desperate people and poor people.
Why keep any out at all? Why even have a border?
Wow, your showing a complete disregard for all the other desperate people on every continent that want to come here.
How can you be so callous?
Come one.. come all..
Everyone is welcome No questions asked !!
Stupid decision to let the two rallies meet on the same day. Should have been "first come, first served". Too much tension, destruction of private property without sufficient security coverage, and too much potential for a major riot.
Horses sometimes fall, or trip, or lose their footings on slippery pavements. The fact that these incidents happen so infrequently shows they are normally event free. The horse could not get it's footing, so it needed human help. That was done pretty fast for being "down town" and shows the carriage owners are prepared. This is a real treat for visitors, and accidents will happen....even on the farm. So give the operators a break and realize their horses are their best asset.
I cannot imagine what is contained in the ACE's report that has not been hashed out over the past few years. If you need a reminder, get a copy and read to your heart's content....and then realize it is here to stay, so get over it.
They're only "technically" criminals. That's classic, I didn't know Leemajors could get any more nutso but he did! AWESOME.
Since they will probably vote for Political Machine B (Democrats), though, laws don't really matter and we need to make them citizens IMMEDIATELY, right?
Control our borders and make a functioning temporary worker program, like other normal countries do.
The extreme "faith based" community is NEVER going to ever stop trying to debase and shame us. It is their primary mission in life. Not to help people in need, but to try and shame us back into the closet because they view us as vile, sick, disgusting abominations that must be eradicated from the earth. I am so done with anyone who portends to be religious but continues to cast out the judgment that these so-called christians hand out. It is truly God vs. Gay to them - it is us or them with zero ability to coexist - period. With that attitude, there will never be any peace on earth because gay is the worst sin of all. Not homicide. Not rape. Not pedophilia. Not incest. And surely not judgment because it never ends with them. I don't know what the resolution is going to be, but I hope the bloodshed of our gay youth would be something the christians would be trying to stop - not incite!
well well well...
Anyone still wonder why we come to impasses in Washington DC?
What a bizarre and narrow-minded take from a corner of the media that's been kept on life-support for more than a decade by drinking, smoking and classified ads for "massage therapists," not to mention the slimy "sponsored links" at the bottom of your column. Ira Glass is a creative professional who came up with one of the most recognizable radio/media brands of the past two decades. He deserves to profit from his creativity, just as you would from your column if it were ever to be syndicated. Public radio gets almost twice as much funding from individuals as it does from corporations. Part of capitalism is paying for content. Individual contributions are essentially a subscription model rather than an ad-revenue model. The subscription model is twice as lucrative for public radio as corporate sponsorship, which is still a far cry from cable news and print media. That's non-corporate capitalism. You may not like it but it's not what your article claims.
"Let's have a real investigation of the rumors about South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who … has been rumored to be gay for years," Signorile says.
I was under the impression that one is born gay? So, why "gay for years", rather than, "gay at birth"? Not a choice, right?
The real hypocrisy is of the radical left, using its various, marginalizing (to great political effect) rhetoric, to keep the Democrat party, despite its moral and intellectual bankruptcy, as somehow relevant. Sheesh.
"The recurring problem I have with the way the BAR made its decision is the prevailing sentiment that pressure during the public input portion of the hearing somehow affected the eventual outcome."
Why bother having public input if it wouldn't have any effect on an outcome? Isn't that the point?
That said, there were plenty of younger people at these meetings as well. I was one of them.
I loved every moment of reading this article. My hat goes off to you and your continuous determination on standing firm in uniting the community and promoting positivity. Right now that is one of the much needed and main ingredient to whip up this growing movement. My hat goes off to you, as you have my full support my friend. I'll be in contact with you soon aI loved every moment of reading this article.

Right now that is one of the much needed and main ingredient to whip up this growing movement. My hat goes off to you, as you have my full support my friend. I'll be in contact with you as I begin to manifest my projects over here in the UK. Also, I'm going to need a few of those Charleston Sticks Together T-shirts as well. Hopefully a international shipment isn't an issue... #CharlestonSticksTogether
I know that the James Island route is not a moneymaker, but is needed by people with jobs in Charleston. If they extrnded the route to Folly Beach, which is only a 3 mile extention I believe they considerably inccrease their revenue. I know it was tried before for a short period of time, but discontinued because the drivers objected. Since when do they dictate what is good for both Carta and it's riders?
If Republican presidential candidates and their respective voting base could get past their hilariously blatant jingoism, they would realize what businesses already have - illegal immigrants are a workforce wet dream.
They are basically the perfect embodiment of what Republicans are trying to do to the American workforce as a whole: employ people you don't have to pay a living wage, or insure, or provide other benefits like workers' comp or health care or pensions, whom you can require to work for an inhumane amount of hours and whom can be threatened with deportation if they dare speak up about their rights being abused.
"Interesting that you quote Mark Krikorian..."
You can't hold that against him, Ima. artrogue cuts-and-pastes about 85% of his comments, and he probably doesn't read them first.
You can't be opposed to illegal immigration and also support the free market. There is a demand for cheap labor, and there are people willing to supply said demand. If Republicans really wanted to stop illegal immigration, they would target the businesses that profit from the services of illegal immigrants, but we all know that is not going to happen.
Besides, the number of people immigrating illegally and legally has decreased under Obama. http://news.yahoo.com/immigration-u-mexico…
And, the Obama administration has deported way more immigrants than the Bush administration ever did. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/…
But by all means, let's continue with the histrionics and outrage. The GOP knows no other way.
Great job KJ. Home run. I would be interested to hear you expand on your conscious decision to be hopeful and wonder if you would contrast your views with the sense of hopelessness of TaNehisi Coats new book. Is the struggle hopeless or does the very act of struggle indicate hope is alive?
"Moreover, why is the subject of homosexuality the ONLY TOPIC that routinely elicits Dark Age rhetoric from the Christian community?"
Christianity has cemented its legacy as an exercise in passage-picking rather than an practice of common sense or compassion.
Jesus Christ, if he existed as written or taught what is reflected in the Bible, would be disgusted by the fascist assholes that have coopted his message.
He would also be a card-carrying Communist.
