re: Do you believe that the United States was founded as a Christian Nation? - texashorn
[quote]You realize that: 1 - the Constitution was for the states to reign in/limit the Fed, not the other way around 2 - the states can do whatever they want[/quote] 1 is true originally, 2 is false as of 1947 (in the case of religious establishment). You see, like you say, the Bill of Rig...

re: Army is worried too many white men lead combat units; racial diversity lacking - texashorn
[quote]Do you agree there there are instances where being white has given someone the advantage over a black person?[/quote] I know you weren't addressing me, but I've never seen such a scenario enforced by the government, nope. It is none of their business. Social engineering at the threat of gu...

re: 250,000 to lose health insurance in Virginia due to Obamacare - texashorn
Yes, I would agree, it is politically advantageous for the Republicans to let Virginians eat the shite sandwich Obama et al have served up, now rather than later. But I tend to agree with such in-your-face tactics....

re: 250,000 to lose health insurance in Virginia due to Obamacare - texashorn
[quote]Almost sounds like some people would rather look out for their political party than use an easy solution that many other states already have. Maybe that's just kicking the can down the road, but ACA isn't going anywhere.[/quote] You call a temporary reprieve a "solution"?...

re: Obamacare critic Betsy McCaughey walks out of interview - texashorn
[quote]Why are they afraid to implement the employer mandate, TT9?[/quote] Don't forget the nearly $100 billion in subsidies Obamacare will funnel to insurance companies, which is scheduled to end in 2017. You'd figure liberals would be having a shit-fit over $100 billion in subsidies....

re: Memphis resident catches bus full of Illegals at Social Security Office - texashorn
Wow, I think you're right, that New York Times number is bull shite. Well, how about SSI? That's run by Social Security. Was there a video attached to the OP? I didn't look. Old folks? US gov says illegals can get SSI (OK, let's say "noncitizens"): [link=(http://www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs...

re: Memphis resident catches bus full of Illegals at Social Security Office - texashorn
There were 1.1 million temporary visas issued to Mexicans in 2010, I am guessing most if not all agriculture related. The law authorizing these visas requires the employer to pay their Social Security, worker's comp., prevailing wage, all of that. [link=(http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/07...

I tend to agree with your analysis of the situation, but would like to add this: [quote][b]United States and Mexico Sign Social Security Agreement[/b] The agreement also will improve social security protection for people who work in both countries. At present, some workers who have divided the...

re: Michael Moore slams Obama - texashorn
[quote]No, fat boy is upset because Obama didn't do a lot more of the stupid stuff that Moore would like to have seen him do[/quote] Which goes to show that the policies liberals pine for are unpalatable to the general population, and loses elections. See: immigration and the impending midterm el...

re: is anybody on this board actually against gay marriage? - texashorn
Seems you think that religions want to kill homosexuals? I think you have it twisted, they want to save them from what they think will be eternal damnation, and not at their own hand, either. Then again, I truly can't speak for Muslims, because there are governments who execute homosexuals to thi...

[quote]It's a free country as long as you don't go up there spouting your religious views or vice versa they don't come up to you ridiculing your religion or lifestyle.[/quote] All right.

re: is anybody on this board actually against gay marriage? - texashorn
Because churchgoing people don't want their preacher to get arrested for "hate speech," and for the church to lose its tax exemption that is a natural product of the so-called separation of church and state. Does that seriously not make sense to you?...

[quote] Do what you need to do and how you want to do it but be respectful and at the same time don't assign or force your beliefs on another. If you are at a restaurant and see two gay men on a date don't laugh or stare and snicker but approach them respectfully if they start going overboard sam...

re: Colorado not taking in as much marijuana tax as expected - texashorn
Sorry, but this "killing off the cartels" is horse shite. The Mexicans move a ton of meth and coke through Colorado, to think they've been completely cut out of the weed business just because a bunch of neckbearded liberals can grow their own stash is ludicrous....

re: Let's call amnesty what it is: condoning line cutting - texashorn
[quote]What can you tell me about the line for unskilled labor from Central America?
