Apr 2, 2015 Oshtur Vishanti commented on Indiana to Amend Anti-LGBT "Religious Freedom" Law.
Don't start clapping yet this is all a Trojan horse. It's real purpose is to expand the hobby lobby ruling that a tightly held corporation can have religious rights to any corporation can have religious rights. This law if left to stand will be used as precedents for any kind of organization to maybe able to make a claim of religious rights.

The No side lost me when they used these talking heads trying to make it seem odd that federally regulated foods aren't covered by this proposed state statute.

Of course eggs, meat and dairy aren't covered by a state statute!!

Clumsy propoganda like this makes me vote against the propogandist's interest absent other factors.
Sep 14, 2013 Oshtur Vishanti commented on Why Did Star Trek Into Darkness Suck?.
Not going to ever see it again. Has lost everything the original series had going for it. Abrams admitted as such on The Daily Show that he didn't get Star Trek as a kid, and he has just shown he doesn't get it now.

Rather look for new good sci-fi than horrible remakes of classics.
Jun 8, 2013 Oshtur Vishanti commented on Sacred Sanctity of Marriage Watch.
What Siddha doesn't register is that is that we already allow citizens to register with husbands and wives. All marriage equality is is allowing all citizens to do what some citizens could already do - simple equality.

This is very different from allowing ANY citizen to do what NO ciizn is allows to do, i.e. legally register with 'children' or dogs.

When the Vulcans arrive we can revisit interspecies dating, the same when we return to the Biblical age of consent of 12 for girls and 13 for boys. Until then it has nothing to do with treating all citizens the same - you can register with a wife so can everyone else, ditto a husband.
May 20, 2013 Oshtur Vishanti commented on The Catholic Argument Against That Bigot Florist.
Religious discrimination by a business owner is neither Christian, American, Washingtonian or legal. She can't refuse service to someone because they have and legally act on religious beliefs that differ from her own.

She sells flowers or she doesn't, she can't pick and choose because of the customer's religious beliefs and practices.
May 19, 2013 Oshtur Vishanti commented on Bigot Florist Files Countersuit.
She can no more refuse to do business because their beliefs differ from her own than she could refuse to provide flowers for a Catholic wedding, bar mitzvah, or Mormon baptism. Religious discrimination by a business is federally illegal.
Jan 3, 2013 Oshtur Vishanti commented on Think Obama Got Played on the Fiscal Cliff Negotiations?.
Cutting the military would be foolish at this time since the military has historically been the biggest stimulus package the government has. Cuts need to go to stop having multinationals do the jobs the military members used to do and let them start doing them again. Bring home that cash by giving it to military members who spend every dime of it. No more $100k mercenaries with off shore accounts. Then we can slowly shrink the size of the military and prevent the horrible effects of a radical cut.

Talk about Romney not thanking his staff, they had their campaign credit cards voided before they could even take their taxi rides home!
Oct 18, 2012 Oshtur Vishanti commented on Anti-Gay Marriage Group Puts on Another Underwhelming Rally.
I was told that signs were torn down with one female interviewed moronically saying "if they have the right to put them up I have the right to take them down"
Oct 18, 2012 Oshtur Vishanti commented on Anti-Gay Marriage Group Puts on Another Underwhelming Rally.
my partner just got home and said he'd heard on the radio that the 'counter protesters' behaved badly, tearing down signs and just being jerks.

Why is it that just before a vote the idiot 'supporters' of our side start doing incredibly stupid things? Protesting them makes them important, attacking them makes them martyrs.
