Freedom

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

I agree with the message in Jack's link also.

Securing our country's boarders should be a top priority issue. But somehow I doubt John Boehner will get off his a$$ and put a comprehensive immigration reform bill on the table that includes robust boarder security measures. The president has already doubled the number of boarder patrol agents on the southwest boarder during his term, but if he did more, than he would risk being sued by Boehner again for "overreaching his executive authority".

A bill like the one Republcian Senator Marco Rubio floated in the Senate could be brought to the House Floor tomorrow and it would have enough votes to pass. Then we could proceed to secure the boarders like the majority of us want to see done.

It would seem that I'm in your head, TheJackOff. Your wit is as limp as your member.

You're calling for impeachment, yet Boehner's lawsuit is "hollow"? That isn't exactly congruent with the bullsh!t you've previously spouted here. Are your calls for impeachment "hollow" as well?

Still waiting on you to name those African emperors.

June 29, 2014 at 8:50 a.m.

I don't understand what a lawsuit would do. Boehner just says things to give the token appearance of opposition. If he was really concerned about the borders, and the catastrophe that it is, then he would take action and not just talk.

BO, the Dems, and the GOP have enabled this border mess. They all want the same thing, more power and more votes. We need the military on the border. Screw the middle east and their insanity. Our border should be our primary concern. We have a huge border and we use border patrol. Small countries even use the military on their borders, why can't we?

They don't give a damn about US citizens, which should be their primary concern..they serve us.

zableedingfistula,

"Small countries even use the military on their borders, why can't we?"

That's because it's easier to patrol the borders of small countries. Their borders are smaller, moron. And most countries don't have the same problem the US does with the borders. I don't see too many people clamoring to get into Guatemala.

The United States has enough funds to have people for the sole purpose of border patrol. Other countries don't. That's why they have to use the military.

It's ridiculous how dumb you are. Completely insane.

What intolerance, Gassy? Wanting secure borders is intolerance? Is that your point?

June 29, 2014 at 9:59 a.m.

Once again, why don't we use the military? We have a problem because we've neglected it. This is 2014 we have the sophistication and ability to keep this from happening. Pull out of the middle east, stop wasting money and lives there, and focus on here. Problem solved.

Now BO wants $100 billion to help train Syrian rebels. Here we go again.

As a Christian I don't think I'm any better than anyone else. We're all sinners. Nobody is stopping "gays" or anyone else from doing what they want. I don't care what they do in their private lives, it's none of my business. They have the same freedom, same freedom of choice, that I do. But, the constant in-your-face agenda and condemning those who don't consider it to be normal is not ok. Clay repeatedly has "gay" themed cartoons on Sunday, and even one on Easter weekend, in order to anger Christians. At least he thinks so. What you libs don't understand is that the vast of majority of Christians don't care what you do in your own life, they have their own issues. Nobody is prefect.

To many Christians it's a sin, and they're entitled to their opinion.

If you have a beef with a religion that will torture or kill "gays", then turn your attention to Islam.

"But, the constant in-your-face agenda and condemning those who don't consider it to be normal is not ok."

What "in-your-face agenda? Do they not have the right to do what they want? If you don't want to see Michael Sam kiss his boyfriend, turn off the television. If that bothers you, that's YOUR problem. They also have the right to condemn your bigotry.

I don't see any gays making laws against heterosexuals. I don't see any gays keeping heterosexuals from marrying. I don't see any gays holding up signs and protesting against heterosexuals. I don't see any gays condemning others to Hell for their "sins".

Your feigned indignation is laughable. You and your ilk are on the wrong side of history regarding gay marriage, just as you have been on every major social issue.

"Clay repeatedly has "gay" themed cartoons on Sunday, and even one on Easter weekend, in order to anger Christians."

He's a cartoonist. He gets paid to incite emotion.

" At least he thinks so."

There is no "thinking" involved. It's a fact with as many butt-hurt posters that visit here on a daily basis. You can act like a newspaper cartoonist isn't getting the best of you, but he is.

Islamic terrorism is not new. The 9/11 hijackers flew here from their countries on a tourist visa. Why would Islamic terrorist risk getting caught going across the border when they can just fly here?

Again, you think the military is the answer "to securing the borders". Let's just shoot them like they did in the East Germany and the old Soviet Union. No violence is needed to secure the borders, just severely punish the people that are employing illegals. Of course, that would be another regulation on business, and killing people is a better solution then "punishing business".

LOL you libs are laughable. Gauss, you're ridiculous. That's a huge and stupid leap.

A secure border is the solution. Simple as that.

allah, the only religion that will kill gays is Islam. Got it?

inq, did you get that? Believing homosexuality is a sin, and saying so, is a far cry from executing gays, like they do in Islamic countries. I said before, they're free to be who they are, nobody is stopping them in this country. They're free to believe as they want, and I'm free to believe as I want.

People can be severely punished in this country for discriminating against gays or anyone else...except whites, Christians and conservatives, that is.

What you libs are attempting to do is equate a Christian who believes that homosexuality is a sin, and says so, with a violent act, like you would see in the middle east against homosexuals. I believe homosexuality is a sin and abnormal. Yet, I believe strongly that they should live as they choose, and I have no right to interfere with the freedom that they have, which is guaranteed by our Constitution.

Christians believe in free will. I don't approve of their behavior, but it's their life. We all make choices.

June 29, 2014 at 1:33 p.m.

There is very much the potential for terrorists to come across our flimsy border. To deny that is stupid. They won't be flying in as they did before sitting in first class. It's a huge border and there's nothing wrong with using the military to defend it. It's logical and sane to use our military and their technology on our borders rather than using them to nation build in countries that don't even give a crap.

The most important thing is that US citizens are protected. Our welfare is more important, and should be the priority.

There's way, way too much concern for illegal alien/criminals/ invaders than there is for US citizens.

We read rights to terrorists as if they have Constitutional rights. They're not citizens, and neither are illegal aliens. The Constitution should only apply to citizens. The downgrading of US citizens, and what it means to be one, by libs, BO, the media, Dems and GOP is sickening.

If you aren't going to use "military force", then why send the military? Why not send the Salvation Army, the United Way, or the Peace Corps? If illegals see the military is not going to shoot, what would stop them from coming across?

Love your paranoia, Fister. When have terrorists been given "Constitutional rights"? Do you honestly believe that? We have many terrorists in Gitmo that have been in captivity for years. They have yet to be formally charged. How is that "Constitutional"? Seriously, do some thinking for yourself; quit parroting what you hear on Conservative talk programs or what you read on Conservative forums. Those talking points may be good for riling up an audience, but there is little factual evidence to back them up.

zableedofisterix said...

"A secure border is the solution. Simple as that. "

Not true. Half the illegals in the US today did not cross the southwestern boarder. Some came over in ships, or across the Canadian boarder but many of them are just people that overstayed their visas and "disappeared" into society, many of them student visas.

That's why we need a comprehensive solution not just a bunch of armed men on the boarder. The situation with illegal immigration is a complex one and needs a detailed, well thought out, multi-faceted approach.

June 29, 2014 at 1:59 p.m.

I didn't say just the Mexican border. What you're referring to has nothing do with this. This is a mad dash by Dems and the GOP to get as many illegal aliens from south of the border into their camp. I'm talking about the swarm of illegal aliens from Mexico and central America. There's no swarm of Indians from India, or Vietnamese, or Dutch flooding our borders.

Any "comprehensive solutions" that doesn't include enforcing our laws and defending our borders more aggressively isn't worth anything. When US citizens are in danger, then something is severely wrong.

Guass, stop parroting what you hear on MSNBC, CNN and the rest.

The terrorist from the Benghazi mess, was read his rights. Why? He's not a citizen. He's a terrorist/enemy combatant.

Paranoia? No, how can you say that in the age we live in? BO just let go 5 top terrorists.

You Dems, just like the GOP, will do anything to coddle illegal aliens from south of the border to gain more from it, even if it means downplaying some serious potential danger based on recent history.

You moron. 20,000 armed border patrol agents are routinely "ignored". You just said they wouldn't shoot. Once these illegal immigrants found out about this, why wouldn't they ignore them?

Again, what threat do they pose if they aren't going to shoot anyone? Again, how is anyone going to patrol 1,989 miles of Mexican border?

"I know the prospect of limiting illegal entry grates on you. Right?"

Not at all. I know the fact that you can't pass your BS off grates on you, right?

I'm all for a plan that will work, not your half-cocked, passive-aggressive "plan". The only reason you want to limit illegal entry is because Fox News and the other Right-WingNut propagandist told you to. Right-WingNuts, such as yourself, would be the first to knowingly employ an illegal alien.

You're just worried about them becoming citizens and being able to vote because you know they wouldn't vote for your side. If you knew you could funnel those illegal aliens to voting booths every November to cast a vote for the Tea Party, et. al., you would sell your own mother to make it happen. It has nothing to do with terrorists potentially crossing the border or public safety. You and your ilk are just xenophobic, partisan hacks.

Your mother would have to move out first.

GaussianInteger,

I've asked Little Jack a similar question. I'll be surprised if he offers a logical response.

The intimidation factor disappears when there is no threat of force. Little Jack says they won't shoot, so where is the intimidation? 20,000 border patrol agents and most are armed with pistols. I guess that's not intimidation enough. I suppose the idea of the military being at the border is supposed to "intimidate" people running from the highest murder rates in the world, abject poverty, and living in squalor.

June 29, 2014 at 8:53 p.m.

No, Rengerry, the topic of the cartoon has been done to death by Clay.

Every other Sunday he gets in a "gay" related cartoon because he thinks he's sticking it to Christians in the Bible Belt on the day when most of them go to church. What Clay, and many you libs don't understand, or incapable of understanding, is that it's possible to call it a sin, without hating the person.

zableedingfistula,

"What Clay, and many you libs don't understand, or incapable of understanding, is that it's possible to call it a sin, without hating the person."

That's a common myth purported by Christians. There are a lot of sins mentioned in the Bible that you hypocrites don't say a word about. It's the gays that receive the full force of your wrath because they are so easily discernible from you. They commit a "sin" that you don't commit. So you feel obligated to judge them for it. I don't see Christians protesting divorcees or adulterers. Why? Because that hits too close to home. You can say you don't "hate" them, but you're just mincing words. You don't like them and you like to make it known by spouting your hateful, bigoted "opinions".

Also, you're not exactly at liberty to call that actions of others "a sin". You've been admonished by your god NOT to judge. I guess that's just another part of your holy book that you choose to omit in your hypocritical "walk with god".

June 30, 2014 at 9:54 a.m.

Ren, why are they "hateful"? I, like many people, strongly believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. "gays" can do whatever they want, and they will be able to get "married" in the eyes of the law, it's just a matter of time. But, it's something else to me, not marriage. They have free will, and can spend the rest of their lives with whomever they choose, but you can't fit a square peg in a round hole, and you can call an apple an orange all you want, but it will never be an orange.

Steve marrying Bill will never be viewed the same as Steve marrying Jill. It will always be something else, or not quite right, to most people, even if the law says it's a marriage.

inquiringmind...To put it in perspective, I could describe the majority way of having sex for heterosexuals. That is, using the the right parts for the right reasons. Then I could describe the way that gays have sex with the wrong parts for whatever reason.

Which would you say was more romantic?

I won't debate whether or not it is a sin, but I will say that the heterosexual way doesn't make me sick.

People can do whatever, and discrimination is illegal, but people don't have to think it is ok. You liberals can't control thought yet...though you would like to. We don't have to like it and approve of it. You just can't make us.

zable...the problem is they could find an e-mail that said he ordered the IRS to discriminate on conservative groups and he would never be impeached. He would play the race card, blacks would riot, and it would be over.

He is the worst president in history. If the libs had any sense, they would get rid of him before he ruins it for them for the next 3 election cycles. If things continue to get worse, even Hillary playing the gender card won't save her.

It is sad that the libs have to use a gimmick of some kind to get elected. Black, female, etc. Without those gimmicks they couldn't win.

timbo, before long some barbershop will refuse to cut an African-American's hair or engage in some other bigoted behavior such as refusing to give a person a skin-head cut on religious principles, or maybe some grocery or restaurant will refuse to sell food to some gunslinger or gblt couple on religious principles, then the court decision that a corporation has human rights will be changed. Maybe they will smoke dope on Market St as a religious experience, after all we can't infringe on religious liberty.

5 of the SC may want to go back to the 1900's but the country ain't movin' that way.

From my perspective it sounds pretty hypocritical to say it is ok to practice contraception but not one form of it. It sounds like it is your goal to force us to conform to your religious views.

Straighten me out? More double entendres. There is some person misrepresenting truth over at mother robin's named timbo ...on that we agree.

The tide of history and more importantly demographics runs against those who cling to the good ole (white) days.
You can sit on the train track and be flattened or you can climb on board and help decide where we will, all together, go. But you can't stop the direction of the USA to a more diverse country: more diverse in ethnicity, more diverse in sexual identity, more diverse in religious beliefs (or non-beliefs). Anyone who has read American history knows that the judiciary lags behind the pace of change of the executive and legislative branches. So this decision is no surprise to a student of American history. But the judiciary lagging behind didn't change the direction of history just its pace.

Illegal aliens/criminals/invaders are not sacred or unique in their desire to come to this country. They just need to come in the right way.

You libs are transparent. You want the illegal aliens in your camp. Frauds. Religious diversity and freedom is guaranteed in our Constitution.

The three SCOTUS defeats in the last few days have only made him more resolute. He'll try and go around the SCOTUS and Congress as often as he can. What you libs call hate and malice is all part of your race card agenda to smear your dear leader. BO is just a bad president, face it.

Guass, we stand for diversity. Our country is made up of people from all over the world.

Kissing up to the "gay" movement and looking the other way when illegal alien/criminal/invaders flood our borders doesn't mean you stand for diversity, it means you have an agenda. Everyone is welcome here from anywhere, but you have to do it the right way.

We have a president who will do anything to enrich his party. He wants numbers, that's why he makes idiotic statements like "our future rests with dreamers"/illegal aliens. All immigrants that come here have a dream, it's not exclusive to illegal aliens.

"system is so broken that folks don't know what the rules are"

Bull$hit, BO. He's referring to our immigration laws. The laws have nothing to do with our borders being stormed by illegal aliens from south of the border. Apparently BO doesn't know the rules, or the law. He's lawless and not doing his job.

The fact is Dems will lost the Senate in the fall, and will not have the House. BO will become increasingly frustrated and will implode.

fister is flustered. He lost his dictionary and thinks "diversity" means "segregation."

Maybe he would change the plaque on the Statue of Liberty, isn't that where it is, from "Give me your tired, your poor and your hungry" to "Give me your tired, poor and hungry as long as the are not too tired, too poor and too hungry."
