YMCA Offers Women-Only Swim Hours For Muslim Women

As a strong supporter of 1st Amendment rights (Happy 4th!) and having read TOS I believe these definitely apply some on this thread -"KPBS expects users to be civil and courteous even when in disagreement. Personal attacks, insults, profanity, hate speech or harassment based on class, disability, ethnicity, gender, national origin, religion, race, sexual orientation or other offensive conduct will not be permitted.Discussion that is off topic or unrelated to the story will be removed.You may not post duplicate and redundant User Materials.
You may not impersonate public figures or other users, or provide any false information about yourself."
I'm sure many would also appreciate moderation on the constant anti-immigrant Nativist spamming on many others

Supreme Court Upholds Obama Health Care Law

Benz says "I do not consider myself to be on the extreme right" and yet posts like
"I don't favor most of O's policies any more than you do. I think most of his goals are more Socialist/Keynesian" on gay marriage" If two is good, wouldn't three be even better? Why are you not advocating for polygamy?" and many hours of Nativist posting says otherwise, I will agree having read many I find the politics completely incoherent
much in the TeaParty realm

Peggy Pico with surprise, reported last night the large amount of comments, seemingly unaware that a particularly nasty troll with multiple accounts had hijacked this thread to promote their extremist hate.It seems KPBS has yet to catch up to how this works, Bring out the Mods!

Benz, you say you do read and support KPBS and yet many of your posts would have already been answered if you had.Why would someone of the obvious extreme right read and support KPBS?unless paid to do so. I have responded to many of your posts and will not be writing existential philosophical theses on subjects, bottom line is the ACA will save you and me and the country lots and lots of cash

Defeated Democrats Find 'Vindication In Spades' In High Court's Health Care Ruling

A new Kaiser Health tracking poll on the Supreme Court’s decision upholding the heart of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) finds a majority of Americans (56 percent) now say they would like to see the law’s detractors stop their efforts to block its implementation and move on to other national problems.
A top Mitt Romney aide has recently said that this is absolutely not a tax
looks like the right do another spectacular belly flop

Most All provisions of the Affordable Care Act is actually wildly popular, even among conservatives, in poll after poll, anybody that says differently is not telling the truth
Again there is no such thing as "Obamacare" this is a term cooked up by the right to obfuscate and smear
