Oh, this is beautiful.
And here’s the ultimate point: You’re either open to business from the public, or you’re not. End of story. The author of the status and the marvelous reply is a Christian himself — only he takes that whole love thy neighbor thing seriously.
The Christian right-wing is having a freaky meltdown over Jan Brewer’s veto, and it’s quite the sight to behold. Check out Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes on Twitter or Bryan Fischer.
Or don’t. Because it’s just more of the same.
Good news! Gov. Jan Brewer did the right thing.
But we’re not done, y’all. These bills are popping up all over the country and amount to state-sanctioned bigotry that already exists in communities all across the globe.
It’s sad to see how those who abuse the system to get welfare, food stamps, disability, etc. undermine the needs of those who really need it
So instead of just being sad about it, did you report those who are abusing said resources?
Here’s the link to report: http://www.fns.usda.gov/fraud/how-can-i-report-snap-fraud
If you’re speaking generally about those welfare kings and queens that supposedly exist, here’s the facts:
This guy randomly came into the bar tonight, planted an American flag, and led the entire place in an acapella rendition of the Olympic’s theme music and a “USA USA!” chant. Then he started to sing the Star Spangled Banner but forgot the words. So he began doing shots.
If this isn’t a metaphor for American history, I don’t know what is.
A GOP state senator in Colorado says it was “a good thing” that Aurora killer James Holmes had 100-round magazine. Bernie Herpin, a state senator elected in the wake of gun control laws that spurred the recall of several Democratic senators, made the comments in support of his bill to overturn Colorado’s ban on extended magazines and drums like the one James Holmes used to kill and maim over 70 people.
But it’s apparently a “good thing” he had it.
What a disgusting, heinous person.
But don’t forget, kids — he’s a self-described ally of the transgender community. Just leave him alone and be grateful he even CLAIMS to support you, you bigots! /sarcasm
But seriously — if people from a marginalized community call you out on your shit and this “poor me” whining is your reaction, you aren’t an ally, you’re a problem on two legs.
It is cisphobic to call out sexism and transphobia, according to Piers Morgan. Got it.
For fuck’s sake… It just gets worse with this guy. He really pulled the “cisphobia” shit.

And, according to this anti-choice charmer, everyone has the right to get hit by a truck.
These comments are from CBS’ story on the recent case of a pregnant, brain-dead Texas woman’s family being allowed to remove life support. She was kept alive against her wishes, and those of her family, because the hospital applied a Texas law stating life support may not be withdrawn from a pregnant person if the fetus is viable.
The judge did not interpret the constitutionality of the law, only ruling that because the fetus was severely abnormal, life support could be withdrawn — meaning a situation like this could happen again.
These comments were one of hundreds calling for the execution of her husband. This sums up why I use “anti-choice” versus “pro-life.” They are anti-people-having-a-choice. All they cared about was the possibility that the fetus be born. Nothing about this woman’s wishes, or the potential suffering of that child should it be born alive. Not one of them voiced concern for the suffering of her family, as they watched a woman they all loved be used as an incubator by the state.
If you want to talk about “playing God,” well, then this woman and her unborn child died last year in November. She was kept “alive” by man, by machines that created an illusion of life. Basically, this woman sums up the hypocrisy of the “pro-life” movement nicely: “Everyone has the right to be born, but if you do shit I don’t like after you’re born, I don’t care if you get hit by a truck!”
"Pro-life" ‘til the birth canal ends.
I’m tired of the idea that people on different types of government assistance are shiftless layabouts who are thrilled to receive it.
I don’t want to be poor enough to qualify, but guess what? I’m thrilled to receive it, not because it’s OMG FREE MONEY, but because it allows me to exist without fear of hunger and as a healthy, functioning human being who contributes to society, and would love to make enough income to pay taxes to help others do the same. Never mind those who aren’t able-bodied, children, and the elderly — who actually make up the bulk of recipients and are the most vulnerable to any sorts of cuts or reductions. We all deserve basic sustenance and health care as a human right.
So stop acting like everyone’s just SO STOKED to get welfare. Yeah, maybe they are, but it’s because those few hundred dollars mean maybe, possibly, barely surviving, you judgmental fucks.
From anti-gay slurs to threatening journalists, here’s the 10 of the biggest GOP rebranding roadblocks.
This might have been my favorite moment last night. And the one retweet of his comment is me. I lol’d.
