every time the news mentions that his "sexting name" was Carlos Danger all I can hear in my head is this:

I can't wait to hear how they caught him. I'll bet it was a really stupid little mistake.

Imagine if he's elected Mayor of NYC, could you imagine being his IT Chief?

two FFRF officials said they have no objections to a Holocaust memorial at the statehouse, but claimed that the cut-out version of the six-pointed Star of David would be a violation of the separation of church and state as provided for in the Constitution


wtf does the holocaust have to do with our constitution?

That's cray cray obnoxious.

Atheists like that give atheists like me a bad name. And I'm perfectly capable of giving myself a bad name all on my own.

I'd say that proposal is a good 20 years overdue. There certainly is a call for special response teams and SWAT in many jurisdictions, but they've proliferated like rabbits since the 70s.

Anyone else see the irony in Obama's personal speech about his experiences regarding racial profiling while apparently favoring Stop-n-Frisk Kelly for head of DHS?

Oh trust me, I'm not one to have my head so far up the wazoo that I don't know the difference. Be and let be. Neither should be pushing any agenda on anybody, and nobody's beliefs should be encroaching on another person's rights. It goes both ways.

We disagree here but probably only because the definition of "pushing an agenda" on someone is different for different people.

I like it. Of course I'd also like to see the others persecuted included, but to say the government should have no involvement in it simply because of the star is silly IMO. The fact is, Jewish people were persecuted and killed in the Holocaust, practicing the religion or a different religion or none at all. But the one thing that they all had in common was a similar heritage, represented simply by the Star of David. Nazis viewed them as a race more than a religion.

For me it simply means my religious belief system should not affect how someone lives their life and the choices they are able to make, and vice versa.

Right, but I think the star is more of a symbol of the religious point of it. Whites, blacks, Asians, etc, don't have a symbol for their race.
