Real News of Great Interest to all those Holier than now so called lovers of Christ …
Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, will soon offer a full suite of benefits to its employees’ domestic partners, including those of the same sex.
The change will take effect in all 50 states, independent of each state’s definition of what marriage, domestic partnership or civil union entails
The Bentonville, Ark.-based retail giant sent postcards to its staffers on Monday outlining changes to their health insurance policies for 2014, including news that “full-time associates can cover any spouse or domestic partner,” regardless of gender.”
– from Forbes magazine
So, what NOW, Christians? Will you boycott Wal-Mart for it’s stance? I live in Rogers/Bentonville and I would love to see you hypocrites try. Go ahead, try and stone some people, like your ‘good book’ suggests you do. As the earth shifts beneath your feet and your antiquated ideas fail to pass the test in an enlightened world, while progress marches on, will you do us ALL a favor and behave like the Mennonites, Amish, etc and divorce yourselves from society? I’ll be watching and waiting to see how things turn out.
I used to be one of your flock, until my intellect overcame my indulgence in ignorance. Please, PLEASE, post your opinions about this situation. I’m itching for a discussion about your hypocritical beliefs and actions.
Question for all you duck commander loving hypocrites
Was in walmart today returning useless stuff you Christians buy for me and saw a duck commander cardboard cut out of one of the zz top members from duck dimwits. This got me to thinking of how this “family” has been making their money as of late. So riddle me this, how is this family so christian that they sale the majority of their products from companies that are pro lgbt. Walmart and Target being some of those. How do you so called christians lie to yourself as you continue to buy products from companies that have completely different moral views than you. Are you a sale out, a hypocrites , or are you guys and subservient wives just to stupid to get it.
Make sure that if you are going to truly be a fairytale believer that you don’t buy or shop at:
Kraft makers of Oreo s and other fine products
Wal-mart for their extension of marriage benefits to same sex couples.
Betty crocker Levis
ford ( what are you conservatives going to buy now, same sex supporter car or government bailout car)
Cheerios American Apperial Disney Starbucks
Wheaties Tide microsoft home depot
pampers pepsi safeway crest

supervisor to be fired at the Benton Co road dept.
The story is that they fired one of their new supervisors (Rick Austin) because he wasn’t sitting on his ass in his office, and was actually out trying to clear snow off the roads. (Bravo Mr Austin, and thank you for trying to get our roads cleared)
They finally get a supervisor who is willing to get off of his butt and actually do something productive so they fired him. BRILLIANT! In my opinion, as a registered voter in Benton Co he (Austin) deserves a raise rather than to be fired. If anything it’s Terry Nalley (a true Walmart Grinch) who thought it was a good idea to fire him less than 2 weeks before Christmas, and then go on the news to brag about it should be the one who gets fired. And perhaps we should look into getting rid of Judge Clinard (the guy who hired Nalley) while we are at it.
Now I know why it is that any time you drive by a road crew there are always 4 guys standing around keeping a shovel from falling over and 1 guy working. The four guys holding the shovel are supervisors and they are afraid they will get fired for speeding up the process by trying to help.
I will be calling Judge Clinard (head of the road dept) to tell them just how stupid they look for firing this man for pushing snow rather than holding down a chair durring a snow/ice storm, and request that both he and Nalley resign, and I encourage you to do the same. The phone numbers is 479-271-1000 other numbers can be found on the Benton Co website http://www.bentoncountyar.gov
I really hope Mr. Austin hires an attorney and sues the pants off of them for wrongful termination and public slander for going on the news to discuss personnel matters that don’t involve any criminal wrongdoing.
Now this following story should be something unless it’s just a lot of HOT AIR, but this person posting Terrorist threats on Craigs List has finally found and been given attention by the police 3 police agencies in the northwest arkansas area have been notified of your post. They say they have contacted craigslist and will use the information if/when there is a hate crime committed in the area. Have fun with your jail time if you choose to play ball.
Following message was posted as such, no way to reply back as you will see if go to this idiot’s message as noted below.
OP: “I resolve to do something about it in 2014. Rejoice! 2013 will be the last year of homosexuality for one LUCKY queer, because at midnight on Dec. 31, I will CURE one of you. If all goes well, I will CURE daffodils throughout 2014: 1 for New Year – 2 for St. Valentine’s Day – 3 for St. Patrick’s Day. . . and so on till the whole thing culminates in a Christmas extravaganza, commemorating Jesus and the 12 apostles with the CURING of 13 revolting, verminous homos.
Watch out for the little piggy on a motorcycle hoping to make his holiday quota! He’s on Olson hiding behind bushes in the medical buildings on Olson Drive in Rancho Cordova!
BAD COP! NO DONUTS!!!
Ten Signs You’ve Got Brain Damage (End your god delusion
Top Ten Signs You’ve Got Brain Damage
10. You deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.
9. You feel insulted and “dehumanized” when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.
8. You’re outraged by “atrocities” attributed to Allah and by Muslims, but conveniently forget the inquisition and witch hunts and you don’t flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in “Exodus” and ordered the ethnic “cleansing” of groups in “Joshua” including women, children, and trees!
7. You attack the scientifically established age of the earth (a few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen using the “any answer is better than none guess method” to determine that the Earth is a few generations old (4004BC).
6. You believe non-believers will spend eternity in an infinite HELL of suffering along with young children who died before being baptized and yet you consider your religion: caring, loving and tolerant.
5. You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.
4. You ridicule the scientific evidence from modern science; history, geology, biology, and physics–science that you haven’t actually read or studied–but fail to apply reason and logic to question your religious beliefs.
3. You believe in the power of prayer to heal and explain the 99.999999999999% FAILURE rate is simply the will of your god–a god that never heals amputees.
2. You cherry pick teachings from the bible and ignore the violent pornographic sections, such as; Leviticus and Deuteronomy and you believe slavery is wrong, but that all people must surrender their will to your god.
And the number one sign you have brain damage:
1. You actually know a lot less about the Bible, Christianity, and church history than many atheists and agnostics do, but you still call yourself a Christian, while actually practicing a failed form of social Darwinism where the “unfit” should be allowed to die before burdening you.

I throw rotten meat out of my car (EVERYWHERE)
Hi my name is Cecil and Im a local butcher. To avoid state disposal fees and taxes when I have to dispose of spoiled meats, I take a late night drive and throw it out my window all over sacramento. One time I saw an old homeless guy sleeping on a bus stop bench and out the window went 3 spoiled london broils that hit him square on the head, rude awakening! Another time I tossed 15 rotten chickens out the window at night on the freeway right in front of a pack of motorcycles, hilarious, or the time I hurled 20lbs of smelly rotten hamburger in the handicap stalls at walmart. I love to dispose of my rotten meat at your expense and grief, not mine!

I think conservative Republicans are totally complicit in getting conservative journalists to write lies about President Obama and Liberals to corrupt the minds of the Americans. Why are they doing this? I am yet to see an article clearly delineating the TRUE conservative views on the suffering Middle Class. All we get are Right Wing conservative ignoramuses to write Fox News BS and confusing our real issues. Unbelievable!!!
People are not paying any attention to anything , do your research reach out to your community ,at least we are growing our own food and collecting non gmo seeds. what are you doing?
What are they running from?
All you baby producers..Always remember!
It has drifted from its original roots . the Salvation Army is part of Universal Christian Church now known as Universal Alliance as been listed as a cult. Founded in 1952 by George Roux who claimed to be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ. see Universal Alliance at Wikipedia for more info . Know who you are supporting . Don’t drink the kool aid…. Of course just my point of view with back up information as I have dealt with anyone that I speak of that asks for money!
