Ye Olde Predictions Piece: Circa 2014

The dawn of the new year signals civilization's return to several grand traditions, including the ancient hoary one requiring we professional columnists to trot out the tried but true "Ye Olde Predictions Piece."

Double standard for Robertson and Kluwe?

A reality TV star speaks out about gays and loses his job, albeit temporarily. Meanwhile, a professional football player speaks out about gays and loses his job, apparently permanently. Some conservatives argue that tolerance means what's good for Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson is good for ex-Viking punter Chris Kluwe, even though the former denigrated homosexuals and the latter advocated for their equality.

The waiver, whose announcement was choreographed to give political credit to Democratic Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, was limited to individuals and families whose health plans were canceled by Obamacare.
