Sally, let's do some fact checking on your claims. The "GOP" freed the slaves, theRead More "GOP" gave woman the right to vote and the "GOP" destroyed the democrats "KKK". Even Martin Luther King was a member of the "GOP". He understood that the democrats new slavery is economic (welfare) and that slavery is slavery. I guess you just forgot that in your post.

Tim, you are a babbling idiot. It's 2014; you might want to catch up a little, pal. If today's GOPRead More freed the slaves, I'd vote for them. They didn't--instead today's GOP try to disenfranchise minority voters and destroy the Voting Rights Act. MLK was never a member of the GOP--I guess you're still reading unsolicited emails, huh, Sparky? It is true that some Southern Democrats were in the KKK decades ago, including--just to get your righties' favorite example out of the way--Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd, who--if he were still alive--would be 96 years old now. Tim, you are an ignorant, ridiculous rube, but don't worry--nobody takes you seriously, anyway.

Tim, since you are still getting your "news" from unsolicited emails, here's a little MLKRead More for you (I happen to know a bit about the Rev. Dr.....): In Chapter 23 of his autobiography, Dr. King writes this about the 1964 Republican National Convention: "The Republican Party geared its appeal and program to racism, reaction, and extremism. All people of goodwill viewed with alarm and concern the frenzied wedding at the Cow Palace of the KKK with the radical right. The “best man” at this ceremony was a senator whose voting record, philosophy, and program were anathema to all the hard-won achievements of the past decade. Senator Goldwater had neither the concern nor the comprehension necessary to grapple with this problem of poverty in the fashion that the historical moment dictated. On the urgent issue of civil rights, Senator Goldwater represented a philosophy that was morally indefensible and socially suicidal. While not himself a racist, Mr. Goldwater articulated a philosophy which gave aid and comfort to the racist. His candidacy and philosophy would serve as an umbrella under which extremists of all stripes would stand. In the light of these facts and because of my love for America, I had no alternative but to urge every Negro and white person of goodwill to vote against Mr. Goldwater and to withdraw support from any Republican candidate that did not publicly disassociate himself from Senator Goldwater and his philosophy." Dr. King barnstormed the country on behalf on Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Dr. King called Johnson’s win a “great victory for the forces of progress and a defeat for the forces of retrogress.” Here is what King had to say about Ronald Reagan, the hero of modern Republicans: "When a Hollywood performer, lacking distinction even as an actor can become a leading war hawk candidate for the Presidency, only the irrationalities induced by a war psychosis can explain such a melancholy turn of events." Finally, in 2008, King’s son Martin Luther King III said “It is disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican. He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican.” Stop opening your unsolicited emails, Tim; they're dumbing you way down, pal.

This is your lead-off story? Feeding the anti-science ignorance peddling hype mill? I have triedRead More often to unsubscribe from your news feed, without success. But this story makes it clear that you are the news equivalent of Cheetos. Fake coloring, flaky, nothing inside.

@ Deborah Lafky Cheetos are as good for you as a lot of these Vaccines. Its not the VaccinesRead More that are bad for you it the rest of the crap they add to the secret sauce. Govt gone wild In the mean time go and suk down some of the tasty FLUORIDE and Chlorine they add to our drinking water. "Chloramines are derivatives of ammonia by substitution of one, two or three hydrogen atoms with chlorine atoms: monochloramine, dichloramine, and nitrogen trichloride"

John Webb, my comment was not intended to be a "gotcha", it was a simple question.

@ Max comment: you see being gay as a "problem." This is YOUR problem. My son being gayRead More is as awesome as my other sons being straight. The problem is not gay people, it is the ignorance of those who do not understand it and thus demonize it in their own hearts. This mentality is quickly going the route of interracial marriage. Because, you know, "Christians" fought against that as well because, well you know, the Bible tells us so.
ChristieD April 22, 2014 at 10:24 pm
@ John Webb: do you really truly embrace ALL that the Bible says? There are lots of things in theRead More bible that were seen as immoral in Biblical times that are not an issue today (eating bacon, playing football - aka touching the skin of a pig, wearing polyester, etc.). There are also things in the Bible that were seen as moral in Biblical times that are considered immoral today (including slavery, stoning people, polygamy, incest, misogyny, etc.) So, which parts exactly are those that are acceptable for us to ignore while pulling out those that fit your own personal biases? Because we could go on a Bible quoting frenzy here on this blog which would be quite pointless. The issue here is that this preacher picks and chooses which issues are "special" to him and preaches against them while ignoring other issues (Jesus never said anything about gay marriage but plenty about divorce). God doesn't have an issue with gay people; heck, he created them! And I am so glad he did!

Thank, Snow...I think. I guess that's why my pizza is always cold before I get it home....

Hey Snow - I think you are giving us a snow job. Don't take that wrong- it's more interestingRead More that way.

When they say to lessen the population in a prison, shoot them instead of allowing this to happen toRead More innocent people.

You're right Rodger
