“Please, one of you ‘Constitutional’ scholars, show me the line in the Constitution that guarantees that I can keep my job when I say hateful things about a group of people.”

“The Constitution does not protect you from your own stupidity. Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson learned there are consequences to shooting your mouth off on prime time television. He could learn something from the Koch brothers, who pay politicians and others big bucks to shoot off their mouth while you remain anonymous. Phil Robertson just thought he could play the religious loophole card and get away with it, but got trumped by the sponsors playing the political correctness card.”

“If people can’t understand that Phil Robertson is an employee of A&E, that as an employee he is subject to disciplinary action, and as an employer A&E has a perfect right to take actions they seem appropriate, why were the right-wingers craving blood over Martin Bashir’s comments? Double standards, plain and simple!”

“Democratic Senator, Joe Fitzgibbon, from Washington State, called Arizona a ‘desert racist wasteland’ on Sunday after the Cardinals defeated the Seahawks. Obviously Mr. Fitzgibbon is a bad sport and has never visited our beautiful State. Anyone who thinks that Arizona residents are racist and intolerant is uneducated and only believes what they read in the news. They obviously do not know about all of the problems created by the influx of ‘illegal aliens’ who have broken the law by sneaking across the border into Arizona for years.”
