Re: “Christmas Is Defeated In Williamson County

Interesting how the militant Christians among us have transformed "Merry Christmas" into "F*** you."

Is *anything* safe from their constant sense of outrage?

It ain't just rural hospitals, though it's bad enough there. Vanderbilt Medical Center privately estimates that they've lost $70 million because Tennessee didn't expand Medicaid.

Have the folks who call themselves "pro-life" weighed in on Medicaid expansion?

Re: “The Daily Links: Bill Cosby, Malice at the Palace, and Google

As a Senator,
"President Barack Obama once declared that an influx of illegal immigrants will harm '“the wages of blue-collar Americans”' and '“put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”'
That's what I've been saying.
And,
"In the passage, Obama also reveals that he personally feels '“patriotic resentment”' when he sees Mexican flags at immigration rallies."

Why do people have to get so nasty, especially those who claim to be so loving and "progressive"?

Re: “Christmas Is Defeated In Williamson County

@PW: " How is a Christian harmed by my having no interest in Christmas?"
None at all. But other atheists and civil liberty types have turned CHRISTmas into Winter Break because of the threat of lawsuits. You might want to look up what Jesus said about righteous anger and I do feel righteous anger about the situation. Merry Christmas!

David: You can bet it would. I would be quite up in arms if a school designated days off as in honor of Ramadan. Why in the world would that be more okay?

Re: “Christmas Is Defeated In Williamson County

For that matter, I kind of miss the nativity scene at the Parthenon. If that were to come back I wouldn't personally have any problem with it at all.

Re: “Christmas Is Defeated In Williamson County

Yoyo: How is a Christian harmed by my having no interest in Christmas? And do you think a kid really gives a damn what the winter/Christmas vacation is called? The kid will call it whatever he wants to and no matter what he calls it he will be out of school for the same amount of time.

I wish people Merry Christmas too, unless I know something about them that would make that clearly rude. I'm sure lots of atheists do. Put that in your Santa pipe and smoke it.

Re: “In Hating on Obamacare, Tennessee Libertarians Abandon Logic

And to prove my point, Mr. shortfellow gives us a video of short clips to try to show everything about the ACA was a lie. I'm quite certain the Supreme Court called the individual mandate a tax in it's opinion. Why are some Republicans just now realizing this?

Re: “In Hating on Obamacare, Tennessee Libertarians Abandon Logic

This country is doomed if large corporations and the most wealth continue to give money to "non profit non partisan think tanks" that put out what appears to be scientific evidence for the extreme right wing to use. Any second year economics student who is capable of thinking can see that this report is completely exaggerated to come to the conclusion they want. Hopefully, one day this country will actually educate its students to think and realize they are being fed a bunch of BS by idealogues.

You can bet this wouldn't be an issue for liberals if it was a celebration of Ramadan.

Re: “In Hating on Obamacare, Tennessee Libertarians Abandon Logic

The ACA was created on a basis of lies and misinformation from the start.

That's how Democrats roll. Here is the proof, from their own mouths...
