I guess I'd declare the declaration of "kicking butt" as accurate. I guess you can declare it a "half-truth" if anything short of a shut-out is your standard. I'd classify the newspaper's verdict of "half-truth" as an untruth.

OK, based on voting patterns, lets assume 50% of your potential customer base is offended by your tactics. Now let's assume some portion of the Sam's Club GOP also sides with the wait staff. I just hope the 1% eats out a lot or this could be a really stupisdecision on the part of the Oasis owners. Of course, that couldn't be because small business owners are a half rung higher than God to the GOP.

Someone actually thinks Ziggy's going to think twice about a slight case of indigection vs. a $600 million dollar gift. Yeah, I'm sure he's really bothered.

....the Question is whether you would follow or violate existing law.

Posted on 08/05/14 at 12:25 pm in response to Vikings Stadium: It’s a question of priorities

So Arne, what social problems must be completely solved before we can build a stadium, or install a bike trail, or subsidize a concert hall? I get sooo tired of this false set of choices...that we have to choose between a stadium or homelessness. It's actually possible we could do both.

I understand the Bachmann-Kahn comparison and I find them both "wacky".

Of course, I also get a kick out an old white conservative lecturing the Left on diversity, but I digress.

I guess I'm not going to take the opinions of the Audubon Society, an advocacy group. I've seen some of the numbers they've thrown around and,frankly, they're just not believable. There are tons of glass buildings downtown and it's not exactly strewn with bird carcasses. I need to know there really is a problem before I get hopped up to fix it.

....simply don't collect $$ from the widow. You have the verdict and the deletion from the book to support your position. That should prove whether Jesse was in it for the Truth or a new bank account.

Posted on 07/31/14 at 08:39 am in response to David Cobb on how corporations are stealing our self-governing rights

Dennis, I couldn't disagree more. Corporations are "reflections of persons"? Nonsense. If that's true, what's Exxon's view on gay marriage? What's Walmarts view on defense spending? Heck, what's Best Buy's favorite color?

And you seriously believe corporations are scared to pour money into controversy? I can give you a hundred examples off the top of my head, but let me give you just a couple of examples. Ever heard of a corporation called Hobby Lobby? Or, better yet, how about...

Let's set aside what happened to Mr. Flowers. I still want him to explain why he demanded to see a warrant when (a) he has a daughter with a criminal past; (b) she's currently under criminal court supervision; and (c) at the time the police arrived, she was in violation of the terms of that supervision. It seems Flowers behavior was confrontational at best. Maybe this is a factor in police/minority relations? What example does this set for a child who already has trouble with the rule of law...
