    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I know this for a fact and it drives me nuts - especially knowing that nothing is for free..... Of course you can corporations that defy the government and the unions and they're treated like garbage, however they're more successful than the government and union puppet corporations, yet are consistently attacked by both entities, because they're not willing to play ball with the EPA and progressives in general. Then of course the government sicks the IRS on these corporations who tell the government to go **** off.

    This is the United States man - government should mind their own business..... Taxation is not good enough for these corporations - government and unions want way more influence than that...

    Hell, I'd love to open a business - a retail business - however it's just not worth it given the fact of government influence.
    This case has nothing to do with the government.

    As long as they are the views of the liberals / progressives, there's no trouble. Stray from the liberal / progressive positions, and they'll cause you trouble.
    May even make such a faux outrage to make you resign form the company you founded.

    Sure it is. There's no logical reason for it not to be.

    It's hardly worth it anymore. The IRS has become dangerous to everyone's freedoms and they can ruin anyone's business or career.. IRS must be held responsible for leaking National Organization for Marriage donor list | Fox News

    Freedom of speech is available, in theory, as long as you don't exercise it.

    Tell that to the Family Research Council. They often boycott or threaten to boycott pro-gay businesses.

    Tell that to Townhall writer John Hawkins.

    http://townhall.com/columnists/johnh...tives-n1672317

    Tell that to Breitbart's Ben Shapiro.

    Oh, that's right. Only "the left" puts pressure on companies to divorce themselves from politically contentious people or organizations.

    I should mention here that my brother is gay, and was married to a woman (who knew he was gay - they'd dated for nearly 10 years, loved each other, they thought he'd change, they could work it out, etc.). Didn't work. And there's a serious point to it. Lots of gay men DO marry women, and it's cowardly, and unfair to the wife, and any kids that follow, and it's especially unfair and cowardly if he wife enters into it unaware. It's what he finally had to confront and so they divorced, and it was the only honorable thing to do.

    I laughed above, but it's really NOT funny.

    Leftists, and that's always been the case. They'll shut down anyone who dares disagrees with their views and history demonstrates this repeatedly.

    It may not be "marriage" for religious purposes, but from the point of view of the state, which is all anyone is arguing about, marriage is what the state says it is. It's a contract, rights, responsibilities, benefits, involving healthcare, inheritance, taxes, debt, assets, etc.

    Yeah, right, because a constitutional amendment to, for example, ban gay marriage is DEFINITELY NOT anyone deciding which views are more equal than others. Good point!
