The problem is that a GoFundMe shouldn't be necessary. "We" already own the land as the public. We shouldn't have to buy it from ourselves to prevent the city from selling everything to rich developers.

That's not what "fake news" means Jesus Christ. The term "fake news" has been so thorough abused it's amazing. The explanation for not updating is in the very same article you're posting, why would you even accuse this of being fake news? There was a snowstorm yesterday, wasn't there? Or are you telling me the snow I shoveled was fake?

In both of the cases you mention, the perpetrator was a man, dressed like a man. In neither case did the act have anything to do with transgendered people, or with bathrooms, and in both cases the offending person would be charged with a crime.

The illegal acts that happened here were already illegal. Please explain to me how a bill banning trans people from bathrooms would have solved any of these problems?

And don't give me this completely unproveable nonsense about "well the bill is letting people think they can do whatever!" Because neither article quotes the guy using transgender rights as a rationale. And that would also require us to pretend that there have never been peeping toms ever before. You're stretching so much you should join a gymnastic team.

I can tell you haven't been to the theater or food court recently. The quality and look of the food court has been improved significantly, and now I consider the theater one of the best.

I used to avoid the Newport theater because it was dumpy, but now it's really nice. It's my preferred theater thanks to the big seats and the reserved seating.

Yes, among other, much worse things. The Orthodox Jews also took over the local school boards and completely defunded them, and diverted funding to bus their children to private Jewish schools. I can't imagine them taking over JC in the same way, but I wouldn't give them an inch after seeing what they've done to other towns.

Oh my god yes, the crossing guard at Monmouth and 7th does this too. I don't know why all these crossing guards think they need to direct traffic, they just cause a lot more traffic than if they let the stop signs take care of it. I guess just walking in the intersection when kids are crossing is too boring for them. He seems like a nice guy and isn't all that bad, but I'd prefer he just let traffic handle itself naturally.

As for the Detroit thing, it doesn't seem clear what happened there. It's not obvious it was fraud, and could have easily been poll station workers not properly storing ballot papers.


Here's a more recent article on it that pretty clearly explains that it was most likely user error. In any case, this is an issue of the machine tally not matching the paper tally, which isn't a problem that voter ID would solve.

The misinformation you buy into is insane. What Trump did is the same thing that Bush1/2 did, which is to stop funding any organization that even talks about abortions. Federal money does not fund abortion anything, and hasn't for a long time. This is the same crap that Republicans pull with Planned Parenthood. Even though PP does not spend any federal money on abortions, the mere fact that they do abortions in some locations means Republicans want to defund their cancer screenings and parental counseling.

What Trump has done is not to defund foreign abortion counseling. He has defunded any organization that provides any services at all if they so much as even mention abortion, even if they are primarily focused on preventative care.

And strangely enough, a 2011 study at Stanford found that whenever this funding is cut, unplanned pregnancies and abortions in countries where those NGO's were providing services RISE.

And while we all argue with reality-defying nimwits here, Trump is still lying about millions of fraudulent votes costing him the popular vote. I know it's because his fragile ego can't handle that he lost, but I'm worried that Republicans will use this fantasy to push even more voter suppression laws.

We also got a laughable ACA "replacement" plan which is just "states can keep it if they want or not whatever lol guys."

And of course, as his very first executive action he cancelled an FHA loan rate reduction which would have saved a bunch of money for a bunch of people, including me personally.

woo boy that's as authoritarian and fascist as it gets. I'm not surprised though, Republicans called any critics of GWB traitors as well. Those tactics stretch back to Joe McCarthy and beyond.

Maybe a good time to drop a quote by Republican hero Teddy Roosevelt:
Quote:
The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else.


Of course, people were calling him a traitor for criticizing the President during WWI.


Blind obedience to the state and silencing of critics is something used in places like Iran, North Korea, and Russia. It's disturbing to see conservative "freedom-loving" Americans embrace it.

The Trump photos published by CNN and everyone else were taken DURING the speech.

How the hell could it be 6 hours before the inauguration? Sunrise in Washington DC is 7:21AM. The inauguration ceremony started at 11:30AM. You're saying this picture was taken at 5:30AM while it was still dark out? WHAT??



It's such a ridiculous thing for conservatives like you to be arguing against. It's plain as day and you can see it with your own eyes. And so what? The Northeast has a lot more liberals. Obama was a unique candidate and generated tons of hype. Trump has really low approval ratings. Of course he's going to have a smaller inauguration crowd.

It's really disturbing to see so many people ignore facts and so willingly spout complete lies, and slandering everything they don't like as "fake news" despite it being either objectively true or just biased.

This headlong charge into willful ignorance that Monroe and millions of other Trump supporters are doing is frightening. When a large segment of our population looks at objectively true facts and decides to say they're fake. When so many people would rather take the word of a pathological liar than their own two eyes, or scientific researchers, or journalists with sources and documentation. Then what the fuck hope do we have?


I'm not so much worried about Trump as I am about people like Monroe that are gleefully embracing the 2+2=5 philosophy of 1984. It's not just ignorance, but complete misinformation. I hope people wake up and don't fall for the classic gaslighting tactics that Trump's team is using, because if they do our country is going to continue sliding to a Russian political system where there is no objective truth.

This report is a joke
Quote:
On June 11, 2016, Omar Mateen, a US-based radical Muslim, attacked a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing 49 and injuring 53 more. In a call to 911, he clearly laid out his motivation. The attack was driven by his allegiance to ISIS and desire for retribution for attacks on ISIS. Incredibly, after the attack, numerous high profile media outlets blamed the attacks on what they perceive as the antiLGBTQ atmosphere that Christians have created.

In short, Christians in the US are facing constant attacks in the media, where they are portrayed as bigoted, racist, sexist, and closeminded. The characterization in the media may be translating into direct attacks as well. The First Liberty Institute, the largest legal organization in the US dedicated exclusively to protecting religious freedom, documents such actions and reports that attacks on religion doubled between 2012 and 2015.

More importantly, Christians and all religious people are being marginalized through the law. From the case of a Christian football coach suspended for praying at the 50-yard line, to Christian business owners forced to pay a $135,000 fine for declining to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding, the number of troubling cases directed towards Christians has exploded.

In 2011, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship lost their official recognition as a student organization in all of their respective chapters across 23 California public colleges. This occurred because the Christian organization required their respective leaders to uphold a doctrinal statement of Biblical principles, which allegedly conflicted with California State universities’ policies. After four years of embattled negotiations, InterVarsity regained their official recognition in June 2015.

In 2014, Eric Walsh was terminated one week after being hired by the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH). The basis of termination was alleged undisclosed income from prior employment in California. However, the Georgia DPH knew that Walsh was a Christian preacher outside of work and went to great lengths to review and investigate the content of his sermons posted on YouTube. Georgia officials have even requested copies of Walsh’s sermons, despite prior statements that the termination had nothing to do with his religious views or affiliations. Walsh is currently suing the Georgia DPH for wrongful termination and religious discrimination.

The rise of these cases stems partly from a broad cultural shift towards secularism. The Pew Foundation found that those identifying as non-religious in the US rose by seven percent, to 23 percent of the total US adult population within just seven years (2007 to 2014).

Anti-Christian entities have been able to leverage the growing secularization of society and culture to their advantage, utilizing the courts as a preferred venue to gradually marginalize and silence Christians. Using the cudgel of “equality,” secular forces in and out of the courts have worked to create a body of law built from one bad precedent after another. Claims of intolerance and inequality are used to fundamentally distort the clear intent of the First Amendment.

The Founders carefully and deliberately placed religious freedom as the first liberty because it encompasses several fundamental rights including thought, speech, expression, and assembly. The First Amendment explicitly grants freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. The essential aim is to protect the right of citizens to practice religion in the public square.

Decades of accumulated poor judicial decisions and precedents have twisted the First Amendment so that the courts, in defiance of the Founders, are pushing religion out of the public square, and into the small space of private expression. In essence, the courts are deciding that you only have full religious freedom and expression in the church and your home. In the public domain, your religious views and thoughts must be restrained and controlled. This trend is extremely worrying in the country that has long held the ideal of religious liberty.

While there is no comparison between the life of a Christian in the US with persecuted believers overseas, ICC sees these worrying trends as an alarming indication of a decline in religious liberty in the United States.

wah wah wah I don't get to use public funds to promote my religious beliefs, and I don't get to discriminate against people and hide behind my religion. I'm so persecuted!

Coed scouts exist in the US too, run by the BSA actually:

http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/Venturing/About/venturing.aspx

Working to organize a Venture Scout group in the kid's area (and getting the program expanded to younger ages) would probably go a lot further towards helping this child than harassing the BSA into begrudgingly letting the kid in (which isn't going to happen either way). But that would take too much effort, of course.

In about 5 years, this "boy" will have a menstrual cycle and develop breasts. "He" will be too young to have hormones or to have surgery so "he" will have the body of a young woman. I suggest serious counseling for this child.
Oddly, I agree with Yvonne on this (except the counseling thing, which implies being transgender is wrong). A child this young has not even gone through puberty yet, and children this young frequently imagine themselves to be dragons and helicopters and have imaginary friends. Think back to what you were doing when you were 8 years old, and if you would have had the mental capacity to truly understand what it means to say that you are transgender. Think about how many times you've had to scold your child because they won't even eat food, and if that's the kind of person you would trust to make this kind of important decision.

I have a feeling that this is another case of a child expressing some childlike feelings one way or another, and a parent has decided to use their child as a political prop in order to show off how progressive they are and actively encouraged the kid to live a certain lifestyle. Let's see how this kid is feeling after they go through puberty, or if they grow out of this in a year or two.

I am a very liberal guy and supportive of lgbt rights in general (hell, look through my arguments with Yvonne on gay marriage and the NC bathroom bill if you don't believe me), but this is clearly a case of a parent using their child as a tool so they can yell "hey look at me, I'm so caring and understanding!"

If you think this child should be accepted into the Boy Scouts, then why not push them to accept all girls? Which by the way, they do have a program called Venture Scouts which is available to everyone, which this child could easily join, except that the mother clearly wants to stir the pot.

This reminds me a lot of that child prodigy Republican who gave speeches all over the country. The kid just regurgitated speaking points his parents fed him, because he was a child, and is impressionable. When he grew up and got into high school he became very liberal. Children don't know what the hell they're doing. I can guarantee this is the mother just pushing her own agenda on the child.

Yvonne Balcer is a local home-owner, pothole-sitter, council meeting attendee, gay marriage doomsayer, busybody, oppressed Catholic, and parking lot advocate. She sometimes has good points on government misbehavior, but it is overshadowed by things like the time she said Candace Osborne was racist for voting to turn a city parking lot into a building.

She is the go-to person when the local news needs a quote from someone who is concerned about something.

You can also find her making her voice heard at town hall meetings.
