SomeLady 1 year, 8 months ago on LETTERS: Trying to come to terms with Chick-fil-A controversy

Check the tag on the shirt you are currently wearing. Now check the tag on your pants. Do the same for your t-shirt and underwear as well. If any item you are wearing contains more than one type of fabric, you are committing an abominiation on par with homosexuality according to the Bible (Leviticus 19:19). The bacon egg and cheese biscuit you had for breakfast at Chick-Fil-A? Abomination. Says so right there in Leviticus 11:7-8 and Deuteronomy 14:8. Your Bible forbids a lot of things. But I'm sure a Godly man like yourself has never worn a blended fabric or eaten pork.

SomeLady 2 years, 2 months ago on JENKINS: The problem with "fairness" is that it isn't always fair

A better analogy would be if you gave a really difficult test, and told the students that those whose parents got A's when they were in school that they do not even have to take the test. They automatically receive an A, because their parents did well. Then tell all the other kids you will not even help them study and learn the material, that they can just flunk.

Or, in a better situation, you could assign those students who know the material well to tutor the students who are struggling with it, so that everyone might have the opportunity earn an A. You could even give the kids who help with tutoring a little extra credit for their efforts.

You might live in Georgia if... your local news website has an argument going on about whether God wants you to have a gun. That's funny, I don't care who ya are.

What? I am agreeing with you! I was being ironic. I posted this comment a few days ago and it appeared, but now it's mysteriously gone so I'll try again!

The Bible only matters when we're condemning gay people, debbiestorm. Jesus was just kidding when he said "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven."

Anyone who says "why aren't they protesting in Washington?" is either being willfully dishonest, or is uninformed of the facts.

Gwinnett's a real tough crowd, Occupiers. Don't get discouraged.

Alright, check this out (hopefully I'm doing this right, I've not posted a link on here before). It should clear up some misunderstandings about the people at Occupy Wall Street:

Thank you, suedehead. I appreciate it!

Jack, that concept is not lost on them, which is why they are asking for reform. The frequent "battle cry" of "Banks got bailed out, we got sold out!" is a complaint against government policy. The two specific changes I see them asking for are to reinstate Glass-Steagal, and to overturn "corporate personhood" so that corporations don't effectively "own" our representatives' votes. The Occupiers are asking for more transparency, and less influence of the wealthy on our lawmakers. Capitalism works great when businesses act ethically, but some have not done so. Some in our government (both sides of the aisle) are guilty as well. There are lots of things that need improvement, which is why the message might get muddled for some. But the core of the movement is promoting accountability and ethical behavior, which I believe we can all agree on.
