Or you can just see Sanders for what she is, a fucking fascist pig, spreading hate.

And certainly God-fearing people of conscience, might find it offensive to dine with a vile hate filled creature in a family restaurant.

 

I don't think she's hate filled, just brainwashed by the pseudo-Christian Borg Collective.   These folks believe they are doing the Lord's work, much like those who caused Thoreau to say "I should flee for my life. " 

You can't deprogram them until you've removed the mechanical arm and the eyeball cam.

Red,  you should tell us what makes Priest's analogy so bad.   Labeling isn't reasoned argument.
I’ll ignore the first of your post for obvious reasons.
As to the analogy, there is none comparable.

A placard quoting the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. — “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend” — sits in the window of the Red Hen, which opened in Lexington in 2008.


Just pretend Sanders is gay. Then her being denied service won't bother you.
Bad analogy.
Really bad.

In other words, four occasions when Trump provably committed a felony while he demands zero tolerance and takes kids away from people who have committed a misdemeanor.

For the GOP, “law and order” is all about punishing the powerless while protecting the powerful.
“ provably”  is not a synonym for “allegedly”.

Trump: Immigrants are Animals.

US:  That’s a horrible thing to say.
Please cite the verbatim 


“They don’t care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our country, like MS-13." Trump tweet.


I see you failed.

Finally some unambiguous good news

http://www.npr.org/2018/06/21/622294777/u-s-population-is-becoming-older-and-less-white-than-ever-before

Not only are whites shrinking as a proportion of the populace and the electorate, they are also declining in absolute numbers. In just a few years a repeat of Trump, or either Bush for that matter, will be electorally impossible.
Wanna bet?

Seventy-five percent of current illegal immigrants are coming from countries in Central America, South America, the Middle East, West Africa, China, India, Pakistan and others far beyond Mexico where multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is common and extremely widespread in children and adults.

And our hospitals are breeding grounds for MRSA, worse than in C. America.  
No, our bodies are breeding grounds for Staph of which MRSA is just a strain. People in intensive care with lowered immune systems are more at risk, but in most cases good hygiene and judicious use of antibiotics is the best medicine for infection. Central America and the US are  almost equal in MRSA cases, developing countries are least safe.

A bit literal there.   Yes I'm aware of how MRSA works.   Please explain for me how Bambi  then concluded that we shouldn't let in anyone from C.  America.   If we are equipped to better handle antibiotic resistant diseases then wouldn't it make sense to fulfill our humanitarian mission and offer medical treatment to refugees?   White doctors who contracted Ebola in Africa,  a far more serious threat,  went to hospitals in Omaha and Houston,  among other places.   Bambu's quote,  from which you edited out his key points,  would suggest that we should have denied them entry.   And perhaps we should,  following his logic,  disallow Lakota from leaving the Rosebud and other reservation lands,  where there are also incidence of tuberculosis.  The only people in the US vulnerable to tuberculosis are those with AIDS  or other severe immune disorders.   That's due to the "good hygiene" you mentioned.  
If you want to argue with Bambu go right ahead.
I only addressed your misinformation.

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich resigns after 'consensual relationship with employee’


Intel Inside! has a new connotation.

Did you read this article about them scotching the Public Transportation bill inNashville?

The Koch Brothers “ scotched” raising taxes for public transportation in Nashville?
ROFL.

You could have just answered "NO" to the original question.
And let a lie live on?

You didn't disprove the "lie" with a response that did not address any of the points made in the article that support it.
Quite the contrary.
The issue went down 66-33 for a number of reasons having nothing to do with  Kochs, some of which I mentioned.

A Koch-backed organization made 42,000 phone calls and knocked on 6,000 doors to lobby against the initiative, using voter data to target that operation provided to them by the Kochs. You didn’t post anything that proves that the effort had “nothing” to do with the result of the vote, nor would you be able to despite your apparent intimate and exhaustive knowledge of Nashville politics.
Which I do, since I live there.
