    Uh, no.. I said we would need to become LESS tolerant of right wing hate. So MORE trying to close down the businesses of right wing hatemongers.
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.

    I do know, however, that a lot of the tolerance campaigns towards stigmatized minorities get mocked as "cultural Marxism" or other nonsense.
    Calling yourself a libertarian while babbling in Orwellian double speak? Sad.

    Yes, apparently it happens. In fact, Jeffery Loughner, who shot up the parking lot full of Rep. Gifford supporters has been determined to be capable of understanding his actions and is reported to be ready to plead guilty in return for a life sentence.

If there was security in place it doesn't seem at this point that they recognized the shooter(s).

    Knowing that Sikhs - who have nothing to do with terrorism, and had nothing to do with 9/11 - have experienced a noticeable increase in hatred and personal attacks from white people here in the US, you'd think they would have increased security. While I have been to Hindu temples, I have not been to a Sikh temple, though I have a standing invitation. From what I understand Sikhs welcome all people as they view all people, men and women, all religions as equal. That openness and respect for all people isn't such a good thing when you are trying to secure a place of worship.

    Not true

    Sikhs do have a history of terrorism

    The largest terrorist act vs Canadians was done by Sikhs when they blew an Air India plane

    You do understand these aren't Muslims, right?

    Play stupid? Like thinking they are Muslims? Yeah, because that is not stupid.
