Re: Albaby! Yes You Can...Apparently

Re: Religious Liberty question

albaby helpfully answers: That's the core distinction. If you're saying that something violates your religious principles because of the nature of the people doing it, rather than the activity itself, you're violating the anti-discrimination [more]

Religious Liberty question

I overheard two Christian coworkers of mine talking, and one of them was rehashing his pastor's sermon last weekend. The pastor was complaining about the situation with the bakery that can't discriminate against gay customers anymore. [more]

Re: NBC decides not to hire racists

SP asks: Will NBC be going after Al Sharpton too, who has done as much to fan race hatred in the United States than pretty much anyone else?

I dunno. Is Al Sharpton running for president? Does NBC have business ties with Al Sharpton? [more]

Re: Car Alarm Weirdness

Figured it out.

First, yes, the vehicle comes with 5-day Take-Back guarantee, plus a 30-day warranty during which they'll fix most stuff. But as I eluded, with my two jobs, it would have been several days before I could get it to Carmax--and [more]

Car Alarm Weirdness

Looking for help with an issue. Last night I bought a 2008 Hyundai Sonata at Carmax. Drove it home with no issues.

Re: not to be outdone...

Do you really think that is funny?

Do the recs mean the reader think it's funny, too?


Well, I for one don't think it's funny!

Re: Clogged downspouts
