Protip: you don't want to be George Wallace in this scenario if you want history to view you favorably.

Kim Davis either needs to resign or be removed from office. The dignified thing to do would be to resign but she wants the spectacle and martyrdom.
The Rowan County clerk, Kim Davis, lost her Supreme Court appeal this week, but still would not to issues the licenses on Tuesday.

The money our Government spends alone on all these wars could fix our infrastructure and get rid of our national debt!  If we can stress one thing this election people it is too get out of all these wars!

Imagine how we would deal with it differently if it were called "prohibition-related violence" instead. We've been through this before with alcohol but we didn't learn the lesson. The cycle of more and more extreme violence will end when there's no longer a need to use violence to protect your illegal business.
If we end the War on Drugs, we can reduce crime committed by drug users and end crime committed by drug dealers

A horrible idea from a horrible person, not to mention horribly dehumanizing. How could we use "FedEx" technology without people being tattooed with bar codes or chipped like animals? Papers could always be forged.

FedEx is able to track packages through regular and repeated scans and updates to their database. How would we do this with immigrants without a massive surveillance state, even larger and more intrusive than what we have now?
 
Chris Christie doubles down on immigrant tracking plan: ‘If FedEx can do it, why can’t we?’
Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie responded to critics of his immigration p

Look at it this way: if someone was drafted into the army and that person held a deep religious belief against violence and the taking of another life (a Quaker, for example), that person would be recognized as a conscientious objector and assigned to a non-combat role, typically a medic.

That's what Kim Davis is: a conscientious objector with respect to gay marriage. She should either resign or ask to be assigned to a different job within county government. You wouldn't assign a conscientious objector to a combat role and then allow him to refuse to do it and be protected by a "religious freedom" act. You don't allow a pacifist to refuse to fuel a bomber because it violates his conscience. You don't allow one member of an artillery crew to do everything but anything involving the loading, firing, targeting, transportation, or maintenance of artillery while still remaining on said crew.
Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis denied several licenses "under God’s authority" on Tuesday.

She needs to quit the job ... If she truly had a conscience. She wouldnt accept that gay people pay her salary via taxes if this were about morality.

The DNC needs to stop trying to triangulate everything and take a solid stand on something. Why are people showing up to Bernie Sanders events by the thousands? Because he has real positions and policies, not some focus-grouped-to-death pablum.
The response from the progressive grassroots to the maneuver by the DNC chair has been furious.

Fuck Wasserman-Schultz. She is another Israel first representative who is being propped up by the rich, retired Jewish community within Boca Raton (who are not in her district) and Weston, Fl. She needs to go and stay gone. America first, always.

If this is suicide, it's sure taking a long time and taking lots of other candidates with it.
 
Here’s why GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is committing ‘political suicide’
Billionaire Donald Trump has soared in opinion polls for the Republican presidential primary, but inflammatory anti-immigrant rhetoric could cost him the crucial Latino vote in the 2016 White House race. "What Trump is doing is political suicide,"

You know that racism must have been pretty bad at the time if Superman had to be enlisted to help end it AND he had to play the un-American card.

and now?
we actually have these alleged humans who are running for president that
are openly and candid in expressing other views. not only that; they have a following.
(in case l was too subtle; those against people who are immigrants and even those who do not have family lineage dating back far enough on us soil.)

Walker literally doubles down on Trump's stupidity and proposes a 5525 mile wall between the US and Canada. That includes the 1538 mile border between Alaska and Canada — no more pesky Palins slipping across the border to get health care!

How about fixing 5525 miles worth of roads and bridges before our infrastructure collapses instead? I know that's not as sexy as stopping poutine smuggling, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said in an interview that aired Sunday that building a wall along the U.S.'s northern border with Canada is a legitimate issue that merits further review.

How about we build a wall around the capitol and white house in DC, and lock it closed with all these idiots inside.  It would be much cheaper and far more effective.

Story
Tagline
One man web development army
Introduction
I have been doing web development since 1995. It was mostly a steam-powered, punch-card-controlled affair back then.
Bragging rights
Learned one dead language, an archaic form of another and bits of pieces of two modern ones. Forgot them all, then taught myself Perl, HTML, JavaScript & CSS and now Selenium & jQuery. Co-inventor of Tellurium (http://te52.com) and the PBehave testing language. Nothing I post should be considered to be the views or opinions of anyone else or even myself because sometimes I post stuff just for the lulz.
Education
  • Boston University
    Classical Languages and Literature, 1991 - 1995
Great centrally-located coffee shop. Wide variety of coffees available and the house blend actually tastes like coffee should, unlike the weak or burnt varieties featured at the national chains. Nice window seats to people watch, too.
