What a great idea. We could also stop all irrigation along the river for a time and see how well that works for those heavily invested in their crops.
Apparently, Al, only believes in HIS First Amendment Rights, because he is not about to allow any liberal columnist to use his or hers. Perhaps if the U-B just prints things that he agrees with, he will be happy in his echo chamber. Nobody including, Mr. Pitts blames white for Timothy McVeigh. A good way to end hate speech from all sides, would be to stop blaming entire groups of people for the actions and words of a few. I noted that Al does that does quite a bit of blaming in this letter to the editor, it is a two way street.
Your link is almost funny. GatewayPundit, possibly one of the most slanted websites available to those who live in an echo chamber of misinformation. Actually, it doesn't even qualify as information, it's just right wing babble. Not to mention the list is over 5 years old.
The Indiana law is not the same as the other States or Federal laws. That's the problem, with laws that are written by outsiders and fed to a legislature that doesn't bother to check out the consequences. Words matter, especially in laws. I personally, don't see how people who demand adherence to protection of their rights, can then support discrimination clearly set in law. No law should ever legalize discrimination.
You will have to have something more credible than the dailycaller and WND. I notice that you haven't presented anything beside the usual name calling. You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts. Presenting false information, makes a meaningful conversation impossible. If you want to be specific and bring something to the table besides name calling, then do so.
Factual information is available to everyone. The tendency to believe every blog and 'news' item that comes across the screen is not my fault and I belittle no one who seeks the truth. One question that I have had from the beginning, and goes unanswered, it "why did the Ambassador travel to the Benghazi consulate without his Marine security?" None factual information abounds in our society and it is damaging to any narrative. If no one points it out, for fear of being petty it continues to pervade the conversation. So perhaps instead of calling me petty, and my facts disingenuous, you could give me something besides your opinion.
It is amazing the grasp of national and world events one can attain by sitting in a recliner in Touchet, Wa. Oh, wait, not so much. Most if not all of the information in Mr. Weaver's letter is false. It takes minutes to discover that under the last two Presidents, border security has increased 2-3 fold. The US Embassy in Libya is in Tripoli not Benghazi. There were 13 embassy attacks (60+ deaths) from 2000 to 2009, not one congressional investigation. We've been ignoring racial injustice for over 50 years and it has worked out so well, i.e. Ferguson, Missouri. The President and Attorney General Holder did not create the problem in Ferguson, it has been there since before either of them were born. There has never been a credible source for the threat to Israeli planes. Giuliani is irrelevant and admittedly said his comment was a terrible thing to say. Obviously there is no threat to free speech in this country evidenced by the huge amount of fake, false and totally made up 'facts' expressed by Mr. Weaver and so many others driven by a desire to divide. To quote mlesko73, Despicable.
To the point of this letter, I wonder why the question is ever asked and why anyone would answer. "Do you believe the President is a Christian?" What Scott Walker believes, or anyone else for that matter, it not germane. It is non of your business. Sadly it is just another way to paint our President as possibly foreign, less American, and not like us. In l959, there was an uproar about JFK being a Catholic, which apparently didn't matter to the voting public. I have yet to hear anyone ask the subsequent candidates for President about their religion until now.
Namvet: Your statement if factually incorrect. From 2010 to 2014 the number has increased by 6 million.. 2010 numbers were 40,000,000. The average benefit per person in that time frame has dropped from $133 to $125 per month. The average benefit per household has dropped in that same time frame from $289 to $250 per month. If you have been in a grocery store lately, you must know that these numbers represent a small supplement. 85% of SNAP recipients are disabled, children and the working poor.
Same old false argument, namvet. Here is one from the archives. http://archives.politicususa.com/2011/12/23/cost-obama-christmas-vacation-bush.html
