Yes, Steve King, representative for Iowa’s 4th district, the SC ruling on marriage is definitely comparable to the Dredd Scott decision. The comparison between a decision not restricting marriage on the basis of orientation and a decision calling a group of people not human beings and giving them the legal rights of objects is a comparison between two things that share properties and have a non-zero resemblance to one another??
Marco Rubio: Yes, let’s exclusively ask the one Latino candidate opening questions about illegal immigration. We’re all totally blind to race & ethnicity here.

Mega-church advertisements are pretty funny – I didn’t realize it was such a competitive industry.
Moderator to Ben Carson: “I want to ask this in the most careful and respectful way. It’s relatively easy for many of the people in this room to call themselves conservatives. But if you look around – there aren’t many people of color. So – why are you here? I ask this in the most respectful, even spiritual way. Why are you here, and not at Cedar Rapids [where there was a democratic event]”
“You called them black pastors, not African-American pastors. Why did you use the word “black” and not “African-American” Yes moderator, just ask the one black candidate coded questions about race, and don’t let him speak about any other subject. We are all blind to race & ethnicity here.

“While we had Baltimore, and Cleveland, and Ferguson, we also had Charleston. While in those places they had offense, in Charleston they had forgiveness, and that was so powerful
We don’t have a skin problem in America. We have a sin problem in America. ”
– M. Huckabee.
“He can’t bless our nation as he would love to, if we do not repent .. Maybe that’s not very politically correct” – Gary Bauer, who is a rascist, violent asshole
