Yeah, they were already crying about discrimination the other day. I guess they have never actually looked at discrimination law, stores do not risk discrimination lawsuits as much as the government and things like banks.

That's crazy. You're only supposed to be able to deny business to gays and Muslims, not real Americans!

1. Ad. She's not doing math.

2. Despite the nature of NRA TV, I find it unlikely the hosts set the terms of their contracts.

3. We'll keep working on how to respond to comedy questions.

Yes, it is sort of like how they complain when people hijack their proposed twitter tags. Twitter tags that *anyone* who has ever been on the net can predict what will happen to.

I am still trying to figure out how their usage of it is different than the left (as opposed to centrists). With right vs alt-right there is a pretty clear dividing line, both being in Miriam-Webster even.

In my limited experiene, the only people who I've seen use 'Alt-Left' were the type of moderate that tries so hard to see both sides, to the exclusion of any common sense.
