For those of you who think ignoring the news will keep you safe, or worry free, or whatever, here's a reminder that just running your business based on your Constitutional rights can get you destroyed by the government.

A judge for the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) recommended a lesbian couple should receive $135,000 in damages for their emotional suffering after Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused to make them a wedding cake.
As a result - Aaron and Melissa Klein could lose everything they own — including their home.

Emotional suffering. When was the last time you saw a lesbian who was enduring emotional suffering over a cake?
Liberals, progressives, feminists, etc, - that whole batch of freedom haters - will attack and try to destroy anyone who disagrees with their opinions and beliefs. Their vitriol and hatred for anyone who marches to a different drummer is legendary in America.
However, people who agree with Sweet Cakes by Melissa have donated $250,000 in support of that action, so Aaron and Melissa get to keep their home, although their business was destroyed by the real haters of this nation.
The other side is starting to stand up and tell these people who just can't mind their own business when somebody says or does something they don't like - even if it is Constitutionally protected - to get lost.
These aforementioned liberals, progressives, feminists, etc, just can't seem to grasp the reality that the Constitution protects this freedom of choice, for the very reason that there will always be people around who get all insulted over what something somebody else says - or does - and will want the law changed to suit their particular world view. It drives them to distraction that the Constitution is still the law of the land and indeed does protect those who have the gall to disagree with their attitudes and opinions.
That's why Obama is their hero and savior, he is utterly destroying the Constitution and the personal protections it provides.. By the time these geniuses realize the error of their ways - that they are also losing those protections - it will be too late to prevent the tyranny of the coming dictatorship, one that will make the world of "1984" childlike by comparison. Stalin called people like them "useful idiots".
Of course, the reality that Sweet Cakes by Melissa was hauled into court and fined $135,000 for making a Constitutionally protected choice demonstrates that this new reality is now at hand,
The consequence is that all these people who who thrive on getting insulted by the actions of others and then attack them endlessly are going to have to live in the world they are creating. And like they have always said, "payback is a bitch".
And the selling of aborted baby parts? I'm not going there but the backlash to that is going to get HUGE
