Curious that we spend more time congratulating people who have succeeded than encouraging people who have not.

I'm surprised they didn't change the name to Corporations are People Committee.

While the subcommittee made no formal announcement of the title change, civil rights organizations noticed. Nancy Zirkin, who serves as executive vice president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, called the decision “discouraging.”

“Names matter. This, after all, is a subcommittee with jurisdiction over the implementation and enforcement of many of our most important civil rights laws,” she said in a statement on Friday. “Changing the name of this subcommittee is a poor start, but the proof of the panel’s seriousness about addressing these issues will become apparent in its actual work. We only hope that this troubling name change doesn’t foretell a heedless retreat on civil and human rights.”

Oh you can bet it will. A leopard doesn't change its spots.

Wow, I never realized caucasians didn't have any civil rights.

Or that heterosexuals didn't have human rights.

More leftist idiocy from a spamming troll.

The constitution covers all those rights. Violating any of the other "titles" is a violation of the constitution.

So, Glory Hole, you support the rethuglican endeavor to strip certain people of their constitutionally protected civil rights and liberties. I'd ask you why, but you're already proven to be a no-mind jackboot that always says and does whatever your ideological masters demand of you without question. You don't know why.
In fact, you're clueless about every topic you post about.

Hey Rebel, does a baby have to wait until the doctor snips the umbilical cord before enjoying any civil rights?

No no, you've got it all wrong.

This is the republican plan to cut the deficit. $8.63 will be shaved off the budget from the savings in ink by not printing those 5 words. Our fiscal house is now in order!

If you're a con, that would depend upon the baby's gender, ethnic heritage, and sexual orientation.

Non answer.

In your quote above, the one you refuse to explain, are you saying that the "fetus" has no civil, constitutional, or Human rights until the umbilical cord is cut?

Remember, you said it is still a fetus until the umbilical cord is cut. And you side with those who claim a fetus is not a human life,

Non answer ****.

Apparently Mr Human rights here does not believe a baby has Human Rights until the umbilical cord is cut. Maybe the Consitution Committee should look into that.

You know quite well what this action signals. Don't whistle past the graveyard as if it weren't there. You're fooling no one.
The essence of the Confederate worldview is that the democratic process cannot legitimately change the established social order, and so all forms of legal and illegal resistance are justified when it tries.

I happen to agree with it. Although it is not anywhere the most important issue we face today I am not going to lose any sleep over it. The Consitution covers all of those titles.

If you want to get bent out of shape over, go for it.

Oh, and Sally, you have not fooled any one in years.

“We changed the name because the Constitution covers our most basic rights, including civil and human rights,” said Cornyn spokeswoman Megan Mitchell. “We will focus on these rights, along with other issues that fall under the broader umbrella of the Constitution.”




Good enough for me.

While we're at it, why don't we just revert back to the days when "We the People" referred to white adult male landowners?

Jesus Christ, you moron! You can't even do a decent cut-n-paste job! But, that's pretty typical for a right wingnut minion such as yourself.
