I am sure that my foreign born friends and former roommates would find your deceitful attempts to paint me as a xenophobe quite entertaining.

Your intellectual dishonestly is on display for all to witness when you attempt to conflate the lawful foreign born individuals with the lawbreakers. 

It is interesting that you consistently side with the lawless and defend the criminal.  It seems that you can relate to the felonious.   It provides some insight in your moral character.


Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves. What is equally true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on. ~ RFK

What you are to your friends, or how you claim you are isn't how you post here. 

I always took you as very xenophobic. 

Why is it that your posting here is that, yet you say your life is not?

Couple of observations from the article below:
1 - when she's not in the news anymore will she still sit in jail?
2 - how many deputy clerks does one need!  :o
her 'son' is the 6th deputy clerk and he refuses ... let him join his Mom in jail.

3 - What is "conservative" about not upholding the constitution?
4 - Why isn't the Legislature acting to impeach an official that won't perform their job?

'Holdout' Kentucky county issues gay marriage licences

County clerk Kim Davis said issuing gay marriage licenses was against her Christian faith
Gay marriage ruling

A county in the US state of Kentucky has started issuing marriage licences to gay couples after the county clerk was jailed for refusing to do so.
Kim Davis, an elected official in Rowan County, has said the Supreme Court's ruling conflicts with her beliefs as a born-again Christian.
Some of her deputies began processing the licences on Friday, providing one to a gay couple previously denied one.
The US Supreme Court declared gay marriage legal in June.
On Thursday, Ms Davis denied herself the opportunity to be released from jail after refusing a judge's request to allow her clerks to issue licences. US District Judge David Bunning said she could remain in prison for up to a week.
Five deputy clerks later told the judge they would comply with the court order and started issuing marriage licences on Friday morning. But Ms Davis's son, who is a sixth deputy clerk, refused.
'Love has won'
The first gay couple to walk out of the Kentucky county office with a marriage licence was William Smith Jr and James Yates - it was their sixth attempt to obtain one.
Dozens of supporters of same-sex marriage chanted "love has won" as they exited the building.

Supporters and opponents of gay marriage turned up for court ruling on Thursday which sent Ms Davis to jail
But there is dispute over whether the licences will be considered valid as they did not bear the elected clerk's signature.
Lawyers for the couples believe they are, but Ms Davis's lawyer said they were "not worth the paper they are written on''.
Support rally planned
Meanwhile, Ms Davis's husband, who was outside the courthouse on Friday, said his wife would not resign and will remain in jail "for as long as it takes".
Joe Davis said his wife was in good spirits after her first night in jail.
She stopped issuing marriage licences to all couples in June rather than comply with the US Supreme Court's ruling legalising gay marriage nationwide, and turned couples away repeatedly.
The US Supreme Court on Monday rejected the argument that her faith prevented her from carrying out her duty.
She can only be removed from her position if the Kentucky legislature impeaches her, because she is an elected official.
Various 2016 Republican presidential candidates, like Mike Huckabee, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Senator Ted Cruz and Senator Marco Rubio, have come out in support of Ms Davis' decision.
Mr Huckabee said on Friday he planned to meet the jailed county clerk and stage a rally in support of her.
Others like Carly Fiorina, Senator Lindsey Graham and Ohio Governor John Kasich have said she must do her job and comply with the law.

My take, good or bad is....  Do the job you were elected or appointed to and thats it.  If not, quit.  Same applies to the Toledo Judge.

Man up or get out.

Whether you agree with something is personal and cannot influence your sworn duty one way or another.

IOW, she needs to go and Huckleberry is a fool for supporting her.

I am very consistent between what I post and how I am with my foreign born friends.

I do not like criminals.   I think the United States has enough crime and there is need to import additional lawbreakers into our neighborhoods.

My foreign born friends are not criminals and they have respect for U.S. laws.   They came here on visas to better their lives.   Some left for home after school and their educational visa expired.  Others applied for work visas to stay and some of these went through the long process to become U.S. citizens.  I have much respect for these individuals.

Your inability to discern that my posts about illegal aliens are directed to those that show disdain for our laws is on you and not me. 

Why did you feel the need to improperly label that which you clearly do not understand?

LOL...it's actually YOU that's apparently very confused. The word is VISA...not vista.

And I enjoyed your omission about importing...which changed what you were trying to convey...I mean your typical hate fest.

Yep...you're xenophobic.

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

You are correct on the spelling error, but you remain intellectually dishonest.

Oh my join the crowd.  You, ff, are "intellectually dishonest" because ... because... because he says you are and we are always wrong and they are never ever wrong, never are insulting... nope

But, it sure is a big broad brush...    But, don't you worry none, it was not an insult... just laugh because they think it is so funny.

Funny stuff.  I find it funnier that the right says nothing when the right plays grammar police.  Why is it you only criticize FF for doing it? 

Oh, wait, I am stupid again... that is what makes it funny to you, that your buddies play grammar police and you ignore it so it is funny when you do. .....

Sadly not-a-professor thinks the error was grammatical.

The error was actually word usage.

He used the same wrong word 3 times.

Which he corrected when it was brought to his attention...but he still didn't correct the omission where he said:

there is need to import additional lawbreakers into our neighborhoods.
