  • He's baaaack!: Romney destroys all other potential Republicans in N.H. presidential primary poll

    I just called target at (612) 696-3400 option #4 and told them that I will not be able to shop there until this policy is reversed. They documented my comments and assured me that they would pass them up to management. There was no wait to speak with someone so they don't appear to be getting much feedback on this yet.

  • Court rejects challenge to law banning gay therapy

    06/30/2014 4:59:56 PM PDT · 44 of 49
    Ronaldus Magnus to AmericanVictory
      The group's litigation counsel, Daniel Schmid, said Monday that the Supreme Court's refusal to consider a challenge to California's law, as opposed to issuing a ruling on the merits, has no bearing on Liberty Counsel's case in New Jersey, which is scheduled to be heard by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on July 9.

      "We hope to get a good ruling out of the 3rd, which will hopefully get us back up to the Supremes," he said.

    It sounds as though that by refusing to rule on the merits of the case the Justices have NOT established a precedent on this topic for other states and laws. They might just be pausing for further research to be published before considering another future case such as the one coming out of New Jersey. This future ruling would the have precedent over all laws like this, including the California law at issue in this case, so there is still hope that these bans will eventually be ruled unconstitutional.

    The only analogy I can think of to these laws would be have the Tavern League and Adult Beverage lobby get a law passed which banned drug and alcohol therapy. Chris Christie should be laughed out of the Republican Presidential Primary for signing a law like this one.

  • “After America Comes North America,” Gen. Petraeus Boasts

    Ronaldus Magnus to robowombat
    Speaking at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty last week in London, the ex-commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq essentially celebrated the end of U.S. independence — and by extension, the demise of the Constitution... “After America comes North America,” Petraeus said confidently in answering the question about what comes after the United States, the theme of the panel discussion.

    The larger question is why did the "Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty" choose to have a conference about "what comes after the United States" and why would Gen. Petraeus want to speak there. The world has turned upside down.

    Ronaldus Magnus to don-o
    The problem with the "Once saved, always saved" view is that it leaves no room for grace. The author is clearly experiencing a "Dark Night of the Soul". However, because he lacks the theological understanding of charity as a higher virtue than faith, he has almost no choice but to view his present spiritual dryness as a complete Atheistic loss of faith. We should all pray for his true conversion and return to trusting in God's constant but not always sensory love.

    I don’t believe it is hyperbole to think that it may now be too late to stop this conflict from growing into a regional war across the whole middle east. Syria and Iraq are now in chaos. Iran will soon jump in which could bring in most of the Arabian peninsula. After that central Asia and North Africa could follow depending on how the war goes. All of this is the consequence of the Obama State Department’s Arab Spring policy. During his first trip over there as president in 2009 he did his best to foment revolution. Now we have it.

  • This Kentucky Restaurant’s New ‘No Tipping’ Policy is Genius

    06/09/2014 7:18:11 PM PDT · 151 of 189
    Ronaldus Magnus to Responsibility2nd
    Here’s how it works: severs are paid $10 an hour OR 20% of their individual food sales during their shifts–whichever amount is higher.

    So in other words, this is a mandatory 20% tip levied on all customers regardless of the level of service with the owner of the restaurant getting out of paying even a nominal base wage. Just like how taxpayers tend to get a poorer return on their money when governments take it and spend it, mandatory tipping policies like this invariably result in poorer service and a higher net cost for the customer. Consumers do better when they get to spend their money voluntarily, and that includes tips.

  • Humanae Vitae: what if? (Context: JP2's "Theology of the Body")

    05/08/2014 1:20:27 PM PDT · 7 of 27
    Ronaldus Magnus to Mrs. Don-o
    But had the Cracovian report provided the framework for Humanae Vitae, the Church would have been better positioned to respond to that uproar.

    This is a rare instance of Weigel getting it wrong. Humanae Vitae laid down the (moral) law in a clear and unambiguous way. Only then after the howling of the liberals and secularists had died down could it be explained in a softer, slower, more gentile way.

    Had Humanae Vitae been rolled out using the "less formalistic, even abstract, view of the human person and human sexuality" Weigel describes the Cracovian approach as having, the teaching would have been muddled and willfully misinterpreted by those who opposed it. The debate would have raged louder and louder in a unceasing crescendo to the point of schism or apostasy.

    By clearly and definitively ending the discussion about a vital moral issue without the all the flowery language and poetic gobbledygook, Humanae Vitae saved the Church from a rapidly disintegrating culture. As Pope Paul VI wisely predicted, even though people at the time might not accept it, future generations would thank him and bless him for it. Thank you Pope Paul!

  • Zoloft & Prozac Linked to Child Suicides & Mass Shootings

    Ronaldus Magnus to Hawthorn
    I don’t see any discussion in the article of the number of people who are HELPED by these medications. None at all.

    "With regards to the cohort in discussion, children and young adults, the article is clear that the drugs double the risk of suicidal behavior"

      Indeed, this study showed that “suicidal behavior is twice as likely when children and young adults are randomized to antidepressants compared with when they are randomized to placebo.”

    So, for all I know, the people helped may outnumber the people harmed by ten to one, maybe as much as one hundred to one.

    I don't know what your definition of "help" could possibly be, but any drug that makes depressed children and young adults twice as likely to kill themselves certainly isn't helping!

    Indeed, this study showed that “suicidal behavior is twice as likely when children and young adults are randomized to antidepressants compared with when they are randomized to placebo.”

    So this is saying that these antidepressants at these levels do far more harm than good? If this is so, these pharmaceutical companies and the FDA should be criminally libel for the incredible damage the use of these products have caused.

    There is an “opt out” when you sign up in very small print at the bottom of the page.

    That's funny, I don't recall ever "opting out" of anything. All of the e-mail messages I have received to the unique address I gave to the NRA have all been clearly labeled as being from the NRA.

    I missed it, my fault. Nevertheless, I do not feel that a paying member should need to “opt out”.

    So you claim to take responsibility but still blame the NRA for letting you screw up? The internet must be a brutal place for someone with your level of computer competency. It sounds like you couldn't possibly have any idea where your spam originates from.

    NRA even specifies (again in very small print ) in their privacy policy that they will indeed give your info to organizations they they think will interest you(read: support the NRA or pay for the info).

    Again, all of the e-mail messages I have received to the unique e-mail address I gave to the NRA have all been clearly labeled as being from the NRA.

    FR has not given our info out, neither have any of the other forums or websites that I have joined that do not charge for membership.

    Your fallacious non-sequitur argument aside, did you also read in the "very small print" that the NRA lets you opt out retroactively with just one click?

    NRA does with “implied” permission.

    You just admitted above to giving them explicit permission!

    It’s a crappy, underhanded way to raise money off of people who are already paying.

    From the whiny tone of what you have written here, I highly doubt you have given any money to the NRA in a very long time if ever.

    I will continue to let everyone know about it.

    Whiners are going to whine. You sound like an anti-gun troll with an axe to grind against the NRA. In my experience, gun-rights supporters who are unhappy with the NRA's practices or statements tend to tout their support for other pro-gun organizations such as Gun Owners of America or the Second Amendment Foundation. You haven't done that. The fact that you have done nothing but whine about the NRA when 1) you admit that it was your own fault and 2) you admit to reading the "very small print" where it tells you how to easily fix your own mistake tells everyone on this thread exactly what you really are.

    I was an NRA member but didn’t renew when they supported the re-election of Harry Reid. Now, though, I can see how I was wrong. Reid was certainly a more powerful potential ally than Sharron Angle for their important single issue of second amendment rights.

    Although I am a social conservative and NRA member who bitterly detests Harry Reid and almost everything he stands for, I have to agree that the NRA is a single issue organization and needs to stay true to that. I remind my shooting buddies that not a single gun control law was passed during those cold years from 2009 to 2011 when the Democrats had filibusterer proof majorities in all three branches of the federal government. Even though there were likely many reasons for this, the wisdom of the NRA's non-partisan approach clearly was primarily responsible.

    The NRA will give your email address to hundreds of spamming companies and those companies will send you unsolicited and unwanted products accompanied by a bill with the NRA proudly endorsing the unwanted and unrequested product.

    I do not believe this is true. I have been an NRA member for almost 20 years and have signed up for every NRA based e-mail alert and offer they have presented me with. However, I have always signed up using a unique e-mail alias that I created for use only with the NRA. I have never received a single e-mail message to that address from any organization other than the NRA. If the NRA had sold my e-mail address, I would expect to have received spam from other sources. Since I haven't, I conclude that the people who whine about the NRA giving their e-mail address away are completely mistaken and defaming the NRA unjustly.

    Ronaldus Magnus to Gay State Conservative
    I just had my diesel clog up on BP "winter mix" diesel that was obviously not mixed properly. The heavier fuel clouded when the temperature dropped as the higher molecular weights fell out of solution and clogged the fuel filter with paraffin type waxes. At this point heating the fuel in the system wouldn't fix the problem on its own.

    Not wanting to disassemble the fuel system, I tried to use a diesel additive called "Diesel 9-1-1" to unclog it but this didn't work completely. I then called about a half dozen truck stops and could not find straight #1 type diesel anywhere. After all else had failed, I then read the owner's manual and found that I could run a mix of diesel #2 and kerosine. After buying a 5 gallon blue fuel tank, I was able to get enough in it and that cleared everything up almost immediately.

    I would recommend consulting your owner's manual and find the right fuel mix for your conditions. My guess is that it will be nearly straight diesel #1 or kerosine.

  • RUSH LIMBAUGH SCORCHES POPE FRANCIS

    11/27/2013 9:14:33 PM PST · 167 of 358
    Ronaldus Magnus to SeekAndFind
    Radio giant Rush Limbaugh is scorching the leader of the Roman Catholic Church for criticizing unfettered capitalism, saying, “This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the pope.”

    I am a big fan of Rush but he errs here in three ways:

      1) Rush fallaciously assumes that Pope Francis's condemnation of one extreme on the economic continuum (unfettered capitalism) is an endorsement of the opposite extreme (pure Marxism). This conclusion isn't logically consistent.

      2) The word capitalism, like most of the other "ism's", has multiple meanings. Making matters worse is that rather than being based on a person like Marxism, Mohammedism, or even Reaganism where the historic record provides a standard, the root of the word capitalism is simply the common noun capital. The use of the word capitalism could therefore mean anything from the mere use of production resources all the way over to the worship of material goods. Translation between Spanish to Italian to Latin to English only compounds this ambiguity. As such, Pope Francis and Rush could be talking about two completely different things and disagreeing about nothing.

      3) Perhaps the most serious mistake Rush made is taking anything that the left-wing media says about the Catholic Church at face value. Time and time again, the initial Associated Press translation of any statement coming out of the Vatican is proven to be 180 degrees from the truth. This latest kerfuffle was most likely fabricated by the left to provide cover to the Obama State Department's vindictive closing the US embassy to the Vatican.

    I don’t see your observation of a roll back due to Muslim intervention or any other “zealotry”. What you describe is a marginal phenomenon except perhaps lately in Russia.

    Not at all. The Muslims are also attacking homosexuals and others throughout western Europe who offend their religious views. Entire neighborhoods in almost every major city are now considered off-limits to anyone considered non-traditional.

    The so called “gay liberation” movement is emphatically NOT losing momentum in North America or Europe but continue to make inroads into mass media and education. As an FR reader you should know this from the many articles and threads on the subject, this one being not exceptional.

    They have made some political headway, but the long-term demographics are completely against them.

    The “sad pun” was unintended. I don’t spend a lot of time trying to make my posts into literary masterpieces.

    This topic warrants care in the choice of one's words. Much of your writing here is very difficult to follow.

    Clear your head and understand that modern technological society with massive lateral communication is the freest humans have ever been in all history, period. This freedom is what societies are coping with in an attempt to reset positive social behavior against a background of varying social conservatisms by definition.

    Any human advance cuts both ways. The sweeping technological changes you speak of are irrelevant in the long-term to people who do not have children beyond replacement rate. Muslims don't teach "Timmy has Two Mommies" in the madrassas.

    That what “society” is, a means of conserving positive normative behavior patterns, which have evolved through intense periods of zealotry and oppression.

    You have a novel definition of society.

    The root cause of Muslim intraction is precisely the effect of modernization upon a feudal tribalist cultural ethos.

    That sounds like something taught in a large liberal-arts colleges.

    Yes, but not to the degree you assume. And you’ll have to convince me that these commies are not the ones responsible for the sexual conservatism found presently in Russia, China and North Korea.

    In my travels I haven't seen any of the conservatism you refer to.

    The corrupting of ethics and morals in the West, which you correctly observe, is not the sole domain of Marxist influence. You will find it in Las Vegas, Wall St., New Orleans, Spring Break anywhere, porn markets anywhere with much of it an outgrowth of advertising. In case you haven’t noticed, “sex sells”.

    That advertising maxim may or may not be true. The question here is the type and orientation. Homosexuality tends to be generally unpopular as most people recoil from it.

    The “Republican base” is a chimera manipulated by Wall St. and oligarch power brokers to rubber stamp their invisible hand strategies. It’s entertaining to me to see Freepers coming into line with lefty observations about police brutality, Wall St. chicanery, intel community shennanigans, America as global policeman, big pharma, the benefits of natural foods/alternative medicine and the pathology of bullying.

    Not following you there, but the Republican base was and remains socially conservative.

    Your Republican base is on the verge of a Tea Part vs. Rino schism that could torpedo the US doing what Australia and Norway just did. We need to get smarter faster, that’s all there is to it.

    I have no idea what you are talking about here. You and I seem to have some beliefs in common, but I do not share your pessimism and eagerness to appease, surrender, and attempt to assimilate the homosexual movement. Although the pendulum may have swung in their favor in recent decades, all future indicators are against them. Demographics is destiny, and the homosexual movement has no heirs.

    It has been very difficult to understand your typing and the nature of the argument you are attempting to make. Proof reading your posts is a common courtesy. So, I'll leave it here and give you the last word.

    Lookit, chil’ren, there isn’t going to be a rollback on gay rights, period.

    There most assuredly will be a roll back of the homosexual movement. Already in many parts of Europe homosexuals are afraid to display themselves as homosexuals in public. The Muslim immigrants who have become so prevalent there tend to take a dim view of such theatrics. Now that Muslims are established there, it won't be long until they have a plurality. The future belongs exclusively to those who have children and the Muslims do that particularly well. Given enough time the demographics will also change here in a similar way but perhaps with a different form of religious zealotry.

    Get used to the integration of the poofter demographic into our daily affairs and try to make the cognitive leap to where we can communicate with them to the degree that we can influence them away from the more egregious expressions of their sexual orientation-i.e. pederasty, sado-masochism and blatant recruitment.

    They cannot abandon their core ideals and it is folly to think that there is anything we could compromise enough to get them to do so.

    This is a tough one to swallow, to be sure, but that’s the way the cookie is crumbling in a technological society with more freedom than humans have ever experienced on the planet before.

    The sad pun in your mixed metaphor aside, authentic freedom is not at issue here for them. The homosexual movement is attacking real religious freedom by attempting to destroy the family.

    Pray that it’s a phase, a reaction to the heavy handed suppression of homosexuality historically, not to mention a the undeniable quantity of “vigiliante” gay bashing that was carried out in the US, most likely not by men who voted Democrat, and that, with integration and a lessening of threat to gays, it will subside from being a live issue.

    This isn't a backlash, it's a highly coordinated subversive movement that has long been aligned with the Communist Party and the Democrat Party.

    There is a surprisingly large number of gay conservatives out there. Why not at least try to increase their numbers via diplomatic means?

    Even the Democrats know that attempting to win the votes of active homosexuals is a fool's errand for Republicans. All that will be gained by compromising the conservative position is the loss of the Republican base. The homosexuals are no more likely to vote against the homosexual party as black people are likely to vote against a black president.

    No problem, your overall point is still valid and it is a great idea!
