Well... Even though it's not tied to a current national/international event, I think it's newsworthy for those of us here in the CU.

I've never interacted with Ross Dmochowski (thank God!), but I know a few of you have and aware of the tactics he's utilized against other conservatives here on Google+. As a result of a bomb threat he made against Fox News, Dmochowski found himself out of a job.

A disclaimer: the writer of this article, seems to have phoned in his research and fact checking. He's probably politically aligned with Ross as well. You'll note the writer claims he found nothing more than him using a homophobic slur on Google+ in heated discussions with conservatives. Those of you familiar with his activities know it's not that simple.

And for the record, I'm sure Dmochowski is completely responsible for the bomb threat post. Edit: Even if he did copy it from elsewhere and paste it, it's still on him.

One last thing -- check +Shawn Holster's awesome memes of #CrybabyRoss and get it to trend!

This is fine if the country is able to generate all of their income through means other than income tax. Alaska does not have a state income tax and issues a check to all of its citizens from the profit it makes on oil leases. 

But if they are taking money away from people in income tax and giving it to other people then this is a terrible idea but one that people are likely to vote for.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Michigan voters choose to ban not recognize same-sex marriage in 2004?

See, my issue here isn't whether or not same-sex marriage is morally correct -- it's that Judge Friedman thumbed his nose at the voters' decision in 2004 and seemingly decided the government knows better than the people. Personally, I think Schuette is doing the right thing, so the Free Press can go screw themselves.

If people want same-sex marriage to be legal and recognized in Michigan, then put it back on the ballot and let voters decide. Liberals have long used the courts to force the acceptance of their agenda on the people -- and I resent it.

The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment as a question of constitutional law, is not quite that easy, and is often misinterpreted. For starters, the Supreme Court has made it clear that the guarantee of equal treatment within the equal protection clause does not mean that governments cannot ever treat different people differently. States need not permit children to drive cars, for example, nor must they allow senior citizens to enroll in grammar school. As a basic rule, the Court has said that it is reasonable for states to build categories or classifications into the laws that they pass, and in fact, the "rational basis test" is one of the standards used by the courts to determine whether these classifications are fair. Also known as the Lindsley test, this standard says that if the reasons for treating people differently are reasonable and logically related to the law's purpose, then they are constitutional. Opponents of gay marriage insist that there is a rational basis (usually, they argue, rooted in cultural or religious tradition) for restricting marriage to a relationship between a man and a woman.

But the Court has also held that certain types of laws need to pass a tougher standard than the Lindsley test; certain types of classifications within the law are more suspicious and require closer scrutiny. In particular, the Court has said that America's history of racial oppression requires that all laws employing racial classifications must be more rigorously examined by the courts. Consequently, it is far less likely that these sorts of laws will survive judicial scrutiny. On occasion, the Court has also applied this heightened level of scrutiny to state laws using classifications based not only on race but also on citizenship. And in recent decades, the Court has developed an intermediate standard for evaluating laws employing gender classifications. Statutes that treat men and women differently must be more than merely reasonable, they "must serve important governmental objectives," and the differing treatments of men and women "must be substantially related to achievement of those objectives."

In terms of gay marriage, the critical issue thus becomes the level of scrutiny that laws affecting gays and lesbians should receive. Are gays, like racial minorities, considered a "suspect" class in terms of constitutional law? Does the court rigorously scrutinize laws impacting them? Or do laws that create classifications based on sexual orientation receive a lesser degree of vigilance, like those based on age? Should the courts then apply the lowest level of scrutiny, the rational basis test? Or do they impose an intermediate standard like the one used to examine laws incorporating gender classifications?

The short answer is that, thus far, gays and lesbians have not been considered a suspect class by the Supreme Court; laws impacting them are today subject only to the lowest level of scrutiny. But since the Court has addressed these questions only very recently, it is hard to predict whether this approach will persist too much farther into the future.

MUCH better than the location in Southfield. Regarding the Southfield location, I went there one day for lunch because I love Kerby's chicken kabob, pita bread, and rice for lunch -- and I was having a bad day so I needed comfort food. It also happens I invited a friend by text to join me (more on that in a moment*). I was seated, brought a soft drink.... and then nothing. The waitstaff stood around, and no one came to take my order for ten minutes. And they can't say I was forgotten about, because there were only about six other tables with guests. Anyway, I left not in the greatest of moods but I really wanted a chicken kebob. I went to the Warren location, and without being rude or hostile, I explained to the waitress of my lousy experience at the Southfield location. She apologized and assured me she'd take very good care of me. Moments later, the manager came over and asked me to explain what happened at Southfield. I told him, he too apologized and then called their manager. I didn't get a free meal or a discount -- but that wasn't exactly what I wanted. I wanted someone to make up for the earlier lousy experience, and they did. As for the food, I already wrote about the chicken kebob, but when I'm feeling indulgent, I'll get a bacon double cheeseburger, fries, and a Sander's ice cream puff for dessert. As for American cuisine and comfort food, it doesn't get much better! *As for the asking my friend to meet me at the Southfield location, he got my message too late and couldn't make it, but here's our text exchange: Me: Hey - don't know what you're up to, but I'm at Kerby's on Telegraph having lunch... Just pulled up. 11:13 AM Him: Oh. Sorry. Long day. Next time 1:35 PM Me: Don't sweat it -- I left because no one waited on me... Has an awful job interview experience in Southfield this morning, and went there to make myself feel better. 1:36 PM Him: But I'm sure it didn't 1:38 PM Me: The fact that no one waited on me means it obviously didn't work... That Kerby's sucks. 1:38 PM Him: Lol. Yes it does 1:39 PM So apparently I'm not the only who has that opinion of Kerby's Southfield....

The fact that we live less than five minutes here is a nice touch. Also, the food is very nice and comforting without being pretentious. Have eaten inside once, and the decor is quite nice and welcoming for this area.

If it were on food only, the rating would be higher than one star -- but the service here is SO BAD, Gordon Ramsay would end up buying a gun if this place was on an episode of "Kitchen Nightmares". I gave a good review to their Warren location because they made up for a lousy experience with this location, which I went into detail about. Here's the excerpts from that review pertaining to Kerby's Southfield:.... "I went there for lunch on February 9, 2012 because I love Kerby's chicken kabob, pita bread, and rice for lunch -- and I was having a bad day so I needed comfort food.
