So what you’re saying is that it’s more important for you to win an election than to follow the existing laws and do the right thing. The people who made the mistake of electing you thought you represented them, not the GOP, the Chamber of Commerce, or anyone else with the clout – money – to rent your loyalty and vote. Sorry Senator, but you need to retire. You’ll never be President, and I sincerely hope the good folks in the Palmetto State will see the light and send someone else to represent them in the United States Senate.

Now wouldn’t it be nice if we gave her a raise to $15 an hour instead of firing her? I mean clearly, this whole episode could ahve been avoided if we’d just mandate that ignorant employees get paid double what they’re worth or, in this case, about 100 times what this waste of good carbon molecules was earning.
you wouldn't happen to own a gun shop and firing range in Delaware would you?

What was wong with the headline? It’s not like they said there were slopes of gooks in their physical and digital armor. Why are their chins on their chest over this, getting their panties in a wad? Had to happen I guess. Seems like everybody’s on the lookout to make them feel slighted for some reason.

Well GOP, let’s see if you have the intestinal fortitude to go through with your promises to your base and those other taxpaying citizens who voted for you. Call the President’s bluff, and then take your case to the American public. We are paying attention to what you and POTUS are doing. Passing bills that POTUS threatens to veto simply sets out your priorities for the next election cycle. You’ve already screwed the pooch on amnesty by not doing what you promised – de-funding it. Time to pull your big boy pants up and get on with the people’s business.

Oh, good. Now we’ll have GM and the NSA spying on us!

It’s all over but the selection of new drapes and office furniture for the Chamber of Commerce. They have the House and Senate in their pocket, and ordinary Americans are about to get screwed again, big time.
Here are the recipients of their largess
Ever wonder how trade laws wind up costing jobs?
January 6, 2015 at 3:33pm
Way to waste money Governor. You have about two chances of being elected POTUS, slim and none. If you’re supporting amnesty and Common Core, you’ve already alienated a large, a very large, portion of the electorate. Besides, given the GOP’s funding of Obama’s amnesty, the party will be lucky to hold on to the House in 2016. The Senate will definitely turn back to Democrat control, and the White House will be in Democrat hands once again. The Establishment GOP just doesn’t get it. You are supposed to represent ordinary, tax paying, citizens, not the Chamber of Commerce, and not big business, or anyone who can rent your votes.

So it’s okay to bar blood donations from an entire group of persons, but not from another group of high risk individuals that account for the other 38% of new HIV infections. Shouldn’t we find a way to make certain that people who want to donate blood have never been with a prostitute, had sex with someone who ever used IV drugs, or is an IV drug user themselves? Just how should we go about doing that? To be 100% safe, you could just bar all blood donations, and go back to the dark ages of medicine. No matter how you slice and dice it, barring one group from donating blood, but not another group with high risk factors, is plain dumb. Here’s a possible scenario to consider. Suppose a straight man, who likes to do the nasty with his favorite IV drug using girlfriend or prostitute, gets loaded and forgets to use a condom. He gets HIV, but doesn’t know it. He goes to donate blood – he’s a regular at the blood bank – and can honestly say he’s never engaged in homosexual acts, never been an IV drug user, etc. He gives blood and infects somebody who is the recipient of his donation because they could not detect the virus at that stage. How good were your guidelines in preventing that tragedy?
sex in exchange for money or drugs makes a blood donor ineligible for 5 years.
Dude you are so far away from the guidelines it's embarrassing. Go back to huff-po.

These people should have been deported. The GOP is about to sell out the American worker and those who pay the bills. How dare these so called dreamers, who at some point in their young lives knew that they were unlawfully present in the country and consciously decided to continue to violate our laws, demand anything other than a ticket back to where their parents and they came from? My wish for the Christmas Season is that all Americans will demand that this Congress defund the DHS, and include a rider on every appropriation bill that none of the funds may be used, directly or indirectly to fund the illegal amnesty this traitor of a President has issued. They need to go a step further and make it a criminal offense for any government employee to issue social security cards or other ID documents to these people, and prohibit any state from using federal funds to provide any benefits to them.
These people should have been deported.............These people MUST be deported!

A judge in DC has already ruled against the Obama Administration’s move to allow more high tech workers stay utilizing some cockamamie excuse. The court rules that a group of high tech workers were adversely impacted by the foreign workers who did not have to be paid prevailing wages because it was supposedly some sort of training. The judge said that having to compete with foreign workers who had no legal right to be in the country, other than the President’s Executive Action, was sufficient standing for the plaintiffs to prevail. This bodes well for other groups of workers who want to sue the government on the same grounds, i.e., that an influx of foreign workers who have no legal right to be here has the effect of suppressing the wages or citizens and legal immigrants.

Could we send him to Canada now? This guy apparently has no clue what he’s talking about. Yes, the unemployment rate has gone down, but that was a function of so many people giving up looking for jobs. Add in the number of people with part time work who want full time, and the unemployment number is over 14%. Gas prices are lower, but still a heck of a lot higher than they were when he took office. Many seniors are moving in with their kids because Obama’s and the Federal Reserve’s policies have ruined their retirement funds. Still more seniors are taking jobs at fast food places to supplement their incomes. And, yes, Obama did bring the troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan, but look what his foreign policy has left behind. Libya is in chaos. Egypt no longer trusts us after we got ourselves into their internal affairs. The rise of ISIS, Benghazi, and countless other debacles demonstrate that Obama is way out of his league in foreign policy as well as domestic. So please, take him off our hands, along with Michelle so that our kids can finally eat a decent lunch at school again!

I have no problem with churches, synagogues, mosques, etc., advocating for particular politicians or a particular party or laws, PROVIDED they pay taxes. The separation of church and state is not a one way street. Now I personally believe that the First Amendment merely prohibits the establishment of a state religion, and guarantees the right to practice one’s chosen religion. That being said, the Supreme Court has interpreted the Amendment to mean that neither side can get into the other’s business. On another note, I find it particularly troubling that churches, schools, charities, etc., are permitted to sell goods, collect donations, and engage in all manner of business dealings and not have to pay taxes on the income they are receiving from these activities. Their tax exemption just shifts the burden to other groups or individuals who have to make up the shortfall in tax revenue. Now if these organizations do not use any government services, like roads, bridges, medical and police services, then certainly they can have a tax exempt status. But so long as they are drawing on tax provided services, they need to pay their fair share. Perhaps these pastors need to remember the line “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, and to God that which is God’s.”

Makes you wonder why the President – and I use that title only out respect for the Office of the President, and not as if the guy occupying the WH actually deserves to be there – didn’t exert as much pressure to gain the release of this wrongly imprisoned patriot, but was willing to trade terrorists for a deserter and a whiner like Bergdahl. I also wonder why Americans never took to the streets and demanded that Obama do something to gain his release. I mean, if the illegal aliens can take to the streets in front of the White House and demand what they are not entitled to have, why the hell aren’t American citizens taking some direct action. I think it’s called participatory democracy. If the people of Hong King can do it, why can’t we? You don;t always get the government you want, but you will always get the one that you deserve. If we allow Congress to represent only special interest groups, like the illegal aliens or the Chamber of Commerce and big business, instead of representing the interests of the people who elected them, then we deserve what DC does to us. If we let this President walk all over the Constitution and laws without demanding Congress impeach and remove him, we deserve all that he does to us. Sgt. Tahmooressi’s situation should be a wake up call for us all!
If they are going to go to these places and have contact with Ebola patients, they need to be quarantined for the 21 days. Just because this nurse did a good deed, it does not mean that she should be able to come back to this country as if she couldn’t possibly be a medical risk and threat to her community and family. This so called enhanced screening at the airport is pure bull squirt. Until a person is displaying symptoms – fever, vomiting, or what have you – they are presumed to not have the virus. If they are allowed to enter the country before the symptoms hit, we then have to rely on them to report their sickness. In the meantime, from the moment the first symptoms hit, they can be infecting anyone around them. We need to close the borders now, void all visas from all of Africa, and tell all the airlines that if they try to land here with a passenger who has come from Africa, they will be denied the right to land except to refuel and then get out. The way to stop this disease is to first isolate it and then control it.

My computer crashed should be the go to response from everyone who is subpoenaed by government. If it’s good enough for the IRS, the EPA, and God only knows what other agency of this totalitarian regime, then it should be a complete defense for anyone to use against them.

I wish someone would explain how two people of the same sex, being married by a Justice of the Peace or other functionary of the state, diminishes the marriage of two opposite sex persons being married in a church, synagogue, mosque, etc. I just don’t get it. How can two gay men, let’s just say they’re atheists, violate the principles of a religion they do not subscribe to, or a God they do not believe exists? The real problem is one of equality. Once the state has provided special status to a group of people, in this case to heterosexual couples, and allows them certain tax advantages and benefits, they cannot deny those same privileges and rights to same sex couples. The argument that marriage is all about procreation really is nonsense, since the state allows abortion, permits people who cannot have, or those who do not want, children to marry, and the marriage of an elderly couple is not dissolved once they fail to produce children, or become unable to do so. The arguments against same sex marriage just do not measure up logically. They are, for the most part, based on religious beliefs and taboos, or on faulty science – like the canard that two men or two women cannot raise a healthy child. The easiest solution to this matter is to take away the advantages of marriage from everyone. No special tax credits or incentives, no special rights, etc. How many people would get married if that were the case?
But this article doesn't really talk about Gay marriage. It talks about within the christian realm at a christian church the topic of homosexuality. Now with respect to voting, what do you think a christian is going to do if Jesus is truly their reality and life, they are going to vote according to Jesus and what God had written in the word of God.
my argument only comes from the Christian perspective and therefore I oppose homosexual marriage. I also oppose churches that pretend to be christian and marry homosexuals.
You have asked why does it matter about who marries who. Well, for one, since the push to let gays marry, Christians have been under attack and by that I mean, a businessman can not so no to a gay person who wants their service. Even if it goes against their belief. Now pastors are being told that it's against the law to say no to performing gay marriages. Christians and their faith means nothing when it comes to the gay agenda. Less then 5% of the US is homosexual but their rights are more important then a Christians rights. Now in Texas, Christian pastors are being bullied into giving up their rights to preach what they believe is in God's Word. Can you not see where this is taking us, as a nation? It's a slippery slop that we are going down. Now it's transgender rights, and parents don't want to cal their child a boy or girl, they want them to decide what they want to be when they are older.

Shouldn’t this story line be that Obama had his spine operated on? I mean, Valerie Jarrett is the spine of Barack Obama, not to mention is brain.

There’s no such thing as widespread voter fraud anywhere in America. It’s only the GOP that tries to keep honest Americans from voting early and often. From the days when Lyndon Johnson won his first election in Texas, and Richard Daley asked Joseph P. Kennedy how many votes John F. Kennedy needed out of Cook County, it’s been a long and proud Democratic tradition to stuff ballot boxes with absentee votes from the local cemetery and nursing homes. This guy in Arizona is just carrying on the tradition.

My understanding is that it is illegal for the teachers to strike, either formally or informally through a kind of sick out. Do what Reagan did with the air traffic controllers. Fire all of the striking/protesting teachers and hire new ones. If the kids refuse to return to class, expel them. Mob rule cannot be allowed to stand. Maybe they’ll be happier if the city goes bankrupt like Detroit, just so a small segment of the population can have what it demands and screw everyone else.
