Just how far is too far?

Segregation

The number of times we hear the more extreme amongst them [with little or no  internal reprimands that they believe that the private sector has the right to:

1] Select their customers based on race, gender, sexuality and creed.

2] What they pay their employees based on race, gender, sexuality and creed.

Seeing that they believe that all government does is interfere one would conclude they regard this lack of rights a norm.

Race.

Avoiding the "N" word has been tough, but foreign has been a go to method, not born here, must be a Muslim and if all else fails socialists. Casting a fellow citizen as a foreigner is just a sneaky way of using a racial slur. When Republicans were asked at the start of the Birther movement, the best of them merely avoided the question entirely.

Gender

By concentrating on what makes us different, and can hence be legislated against, they can avoid straightforward charges of sexism. It all for the baby rather than against the woman. Only the morally depraved would require that service. Well if you used common sense you wouldn't dress like that, and so on.

Sexuality.

Here is an easier subject for them to deal with, they seem to all agree they really don't have to try that hard not to appear homophobic. It will ruin the army, promote bestiality, allow polygamy/polyandry and put our children in danger. They can say this with barely a murmur of dissent.

Creed

Continually going on about god, and we all know which god that happens to be, and how this is god's country sort of speaks for itself. If he is not one of us he must be a Muslim and he is a Muslim because he isn't white. We all know liberals cant be Christians don't we?

We all know this stuff is a figment of our imagination.

Ya really.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    That is what is frightening about them. They are trying to regain power by appealing to the very worst instincts of their base and I don't think they much care who gets hurt in the process. The money/power faction of the party only cares about more money and more power and the evangelical faction doesn't care if the middle east is literally set ablaze, in fact they welcome it and encourage it because in their delusional religious psychosis they believe that the middle east (and Israel) must be destroyed in order to bring on the Rapture.

    I just want to send a special shout out to St. Ronnie for bringing these lunatics (evangelicals) arm and arm into our government and our political process.
