What political views did the Chik-fil-A worker express?

None I know of. She was treated badly for no reason. Not as badly as Fluke was but still it wasn't fair.

Quite frankly, it's on par with Romney not caring about the very poor...

Context is everything.
Our tax system HAS ALWAYS been progressive. A fact that right-wingers (who often pretend to be interested in continuing tradition) don't seem to appreciate.

I note the absence of any response to Joe the Plumber LYING about who he was, and how that completely failed to satisfy the rhetoric image that the right was trying to place him in...

I recommend you supply that quote to somebody who actually uses that phrase.

Paying taxes => "punish success".
You say that sort of crap like it means something to anybody other than right-wingers.
I swear. The right often doesn't recognize how the moderates react to their propaganda sometimes.
Paying more taxes because you earn more IS NOT intelligently construed as "punishing success".

The difference is that the right will champion denigrating Sandra Fluke, repeating the attacks.
The left will acknowledge that what happened to the Chick-fil-a worker was inexcusably wrong.

It's just as simple as that.

What is silly is a lot of people on the right thought Rush was out of line.

[QUOTE=Mikeyy;463731]You aren't a real mod are ya?[/QUOTE

I was thinking exactly the same thing when the "slut-like" comment went up on the board. No different from Rush Limbaugh whatsoever. A moderator is supposed to maintain order and decorum on the board, not instigate nasty name calling when political views differ from other poster's. You and I would have got the "Moderator Mode" post if we put up a comment like that......

Here's the girl that Obama operative/PR firm manager/Mao fan Anita Dunn (intentionally), and Rush Limbaugh (unintentionally) made.



Here's the panel at Red Eye discussing the left's ludicrous attempt to compare her to working class hero, Rachel.

How is that any more or less true for Sandra Fluke, as compared to any health insurance purchaser?


Or how about straight marriages taking tax money from gay couples (who are forbidden from marrying)?
It's MORE true for them...
