    You can’t get started on rewriting history too soon. At least Obama is on top of something.

    Republicans had their chance to be emboldened in 2010 and they blew it. I predict that if the republicans win the senate and keep the house this fall the democrats will win everything in 2016.
    Why?
    The republicans will not role back Obamacare, They’ll “fix” it which is code for expand it which means more government. This will make it worse and also make it the republicans fault.
    The republicans will not expand nor make use of the 2013 rule changes in the senate. The democrats will claim those changes are unconstitutional, unpatriotic, and un-American as soon as their out of power. The republicans will bow down out of fear of being labeled ,as always, further alienating their base.
    The republicans will make issue of all the scandals however they’ll do it while “Rome Burns” and no one(of substance) will go to jail or otherwise be punished. Conservatives(not republicans) will not be impressed with a janitor taking the fall for Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS abuse and the VA scandal. The people want more accountability than that in government.
    To your last point. The republicans gave us Roberts who gave us Obamacare. Enough said.
    For these reasons I believe we will be worse off in 2016 even if republicans win this fall. 2016 will become a reflection of who gets blamed for that misery.
    The only wild card is energy prices. If prices go down(which they could) and republicans can take credit for it then it’s anyones game.

    I believe NYC has the government they voted for. I hope they’re enjoying it.

    Read the article. My point is the republican lacked the intellectual capacity to question it. According to the article the only response the republican had was to tell the man one of his ballots was open. You don’t see that as part of the problem? I wrote this above “If you can’t confront someone so obviously stuffing the ballet box then how can you confront our nations problems.”. So what is your answer. Did you even read my post?

    The problem I see is the state being involved with marriage in the first place. State marriage and Religious marriage should not be treated the same anyway. Preachers should not be performing state marriages in the first place. State marriage has nothing to do with commitment, God, love, or duty. State marriage creates a legal entity that is then bestowed with special rights and privileges much like incorporating a company. Religious marriage is a vow to a partner and a commitment to God and partner. As such it would only have value to religious people. Had the separation of church and state been maintained to begin with this would not be an issue at all. Churches readily accepted the government sanctioning the institution of marriage now like so many they’re discovering you may not get to keep your religion even if you like your religion. If the preacher wasn’t authorized by the government to do the justice of the peace’s job then this wouldn’t be an issue. Churches should simply move to remove themselves from government work. People could still get married before God in a church but if they want the government license and perks they’ll have to go to the justice of the peace. I think the best way to separate church and state is to keep them separate. If preachers do not wish to be controlled by the state then they should refuse to be agents of the state.

    So LaFaro watched him stuff the ballot box and will no doubt later count the votes then be the first to cry foul if republicans lose. LaFaro accuses the man of being lawless but what law was broken? I ask out of ignorance because I’m not familiar with AZ law. I also wonder why LaFaro just watched if the guy was really breaking the law. Would LaFaro just watch a mugging take place in front of him? LaFaro didn’t even question the man. Republicans govern with this same wishy washy mentality and wonder why they lose support. If you can’t confront someone so obviously stuffing the ballet box then how can you confront our nations problems. I find it hard to believe the republicans could show any more backbone against leaders like Putin than Obama does. It’s always easy for the minority party to armchair quarterback the majority (lord knows the democrats enjoyed doing it when Bush was president) but having to walk the walk is always the true test. A test both parties fail miserably at when the time comes. Democrats may be ruining our country but the most republicans will do about it is tell them one of their ballots isn’t sealed.

    All discussions related to K-12 education ignore the big elephant in the room. The elephant would be the real world value( or lack of ) of a high school diploma. I can’t think of a job that requires a high school diploma. Jobs tend to require college education or no education. A high school diploma isn’t even required for college. My brother dropped out of high school and just got his GED when he wanted to go to college. A “good enough diploma” got him just as far as a high school diploma. Parents tend to treat public schools as a babysitting service because that’s where the value of the school begins and ends.

    Schools only want parents to reinforce the schools rules. Disagree with the school or question a policy and see how involved they want you to be. Schools want the parents to be just like the students UNQUESTIONABLY COMPLIANT. Go to a meeting and disagree with or even question the administration and they’ll try to have you arrested. The school uses the same fear and intimidation on parents they do on students. If it’s solely the parents job to teach critical thinking, analysis, communication, the constitution, our history, and basic laws then fine. That is exactly what home schooling is. You’ve just made teachers babysitters by relieving them of all responsibility for teaching anything. Lets not forget parents are the ones who’s children get interrogated daily on “what does mommy and daddy do”. It was the schools that wanted to take over parenting and push the parents out of the process. Parents are also a product of our public school system. I’m not happy with the job public schools have done either.

    I wonder how the government would react if MM card holders started demanding pharmacies carry pot.

    I thought the shotgun in a shotgun wedding was for the groom not the preacher. I guess I should get out more.

    The best way to deter identity theft would be photos on all issued cards. Then when theft occurs all cards being used would have a picture attached to the transaction. This would make it easy to determine who made what transaction and where so the illegal acts can be separated from the legal ones. It would also give law enforcement a photo of identity thieves.

    I’m sure Lois Lerner is anxious to get back to work. I hear someone from the VA has recently been given “new employment opportunities” also. This could be perfect timing.

    Colleges will be happy to take her money even with a “B” on her record. You can skip high school , take your GED and go to college that way too. A high school diploma is the second most worthless document in existence. K thru 12 education is nothing more than glorified day care. If we paid the teachers the 8 bucks an hour their worth as daycare providers they wouldn’t get such swelled heads. We need to value education for what it’s real world value is instead of the dollar amount spent.

    Wayne needs to visit Detroit. Once the takers become the ruling mob in a democracy there is no coming back. The constitution and the republic it stands for died long ago thanks to apathetic Americans. Democracies never end well. Everyone wants the government to use it’s power to force others to do their will. The right the left the religious the atheists the gays the straights, everyone. This is why Americans rejected the republic for democracy(mob rules). You need a mob to steal indiscriminately from others and you can’t have some document saying the government has no right to head the mob. Americas short future is Detroit, after that it’s anyone guess.

    Your right. In my state private title companies handle title work. It’s the title companies responsibility to make sure the transaction is legitimate and all paperwork is properly filed. This fraud wouldn’t work with title companies as they make a point of meeting both buyer and seller.
