What was the first concert you went to?
Mine was Debbie Gibson.
They were talking about this on the radio this morning and it made me laugh listening to the various bands/singers that people saw.
What say you?
Green Day FTW
Living Colour, the Center Stage, Atlanta. Fall, 1990.
Guns ‘N Roses/Metallica/Faith No More, Three Rivers Stadium, July 1992
That’s not justice. If this country wants to move in that direction, then perhaps progressives nationally should reorganize into a “religion.” Sounds like a pretty cool perk: organize politically without the pesky IRS, and enshrine a bunch of political beliefs into a discriminatory legal code. But somehow I don’t think the Supreme Court would go for that. “Religious freedom” only goes in one direction: whatever misogynistic conservative men want."
— Abortion rights are the law of the land. Hobby Lobby’s rejection of abortion rights as against their religious principles is no more valid a reason to deny an employee compensation than any other form of religious discrimination. The Constitution grants the owners of Hobby Lobby to exercise their own religion as they see fit. It doesn’t grant them the right to pay their employees unequally on the basis of their religious beliefs if we’ve passed a law stating that employees have a right to equal compensation (which is what the ACA essentially does.)
