    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.

    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?

    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.

    You cannot blame the GOP for inaction on this. They have been screaming from the rooftops, at least some of them have been, but they are powerless. The President has the sole authority to ban flights, cancel visas, etc. Even if the GOP controlled House could pass a bill requiring these steps – cancellation of visas, flight bans, etc. – it would go nowhere in the Senate, since Harry Reid would never allow it to hit the floor. Passing such a bill would embarrass Obama. And he has already proven that he just ignores laws that he doesn’t agree with. I’m afraid we’re screwed for another two years until the next presidential election cycle. The House could impeach the President at any time it wanted to do so, but there is no way that he would be removed from office by the Senate. Even if the GOP wins a majority in a few weeks, they won’t have the 67 votes necessary in the Senate.

    The incubation period for ebola is apparently up to 21 days, and a person is asymptomatic during that period. So puzzle me this Mr. President. How do we figure out that a person who is asymptomatic has the virus in him or her, and is thus allowed on a plane. I do get the idea that people in affected countries may just go to another and fly from there, which is why we need to ban all persons from coming to this country from the entire continent of Africa, unless they are willing to be voluntarily isolated, at their expense, for a minimum of 21 days. If they test positive for the virus they are sent back home. We clearly cannot safely treat Ebola patients here with our current state of preparedness and training, as the cases in Texas have demonstrated,

    I don’t agree with the subpoenas at all. They are overly broad. I do, however, agree that when a church or other religious tax exempt organization gets into politics, regardless of what their point of view is, they really are crossing the line of separation between church and state. When you boil it down to the basics, you are asking those who are either not religious, or who do not subscribe to a particular church’s point of view or teachings, to subsidize it. That’s simply wrong. Then again, I do not believe that there should even be such an entity as a tax exempt organization of any kind, unless they can prove that they do not use any government provided services or institutions, such as police and fire protection, roads and bridges, etc. When an organization does not pay its fair share of the tax burden to maintain these services, it shifts the responsibility to everyone else. That is also not fair. Now if that was the rule, i.e., that there are no longer any tax exempt organizations, then these subpoenas would be a violation of the First Amendment, but not because it’s churchs involved.

    This LGBT organization is an embarrassment to those of us who simply want to live our lives and have the equal protection of the laws. When you single out an organization, a company, an individual, or other entity, to target in order to get them to deny you a service, you’re inducing that entity to commit a tortious act so that you can sue them. It’s disgusting. This organization, like a lot of other LGBT groups, is not interested in equality under the law. They’re interested in being special. I would hope that this company fights them all the way to the Supreme Court. The problem with actions like this is that the people who initiate them can do so with impunity because it’s easier to settle than fight for right. Time for a change in that attitude.

    Oh, good. So this means we’re not going broke as quickly as we thought. It’s strange that we would call this ‘good news’.

    Many of the comments here concerning the Tenth Amendment, First Amendment, etc., are on point to the issue, except there is another wrinkle to consider. Article IV, Section 1, provides “Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state. And the Congress may by general laws prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof.” For those who argue states retain the right to define marriage, you run into the problem of every state having to recognize a gay marriage performed in a state that allows it. One of the major appeals brought by the proponents of same sex marriage is that they are entitled to have their marriage recognized, and to secure the same rights, privileges and immunities enjoyed by every other married couple. If you want to end the whole thing, all you have to do is have all of the states, and the federal government, get out of the marriage business altogether. It would also require that all of the special rights, privileges, etc., that married couples enjoy need to be eliminated as well. If religious groups insist in conducting marriage ceremonies, let them continue to do so, but without the incentives that go along with them.

    Our President and his Administration are being intellectually dishonest, or want to perpetuate a double standard. Are mainland Americans permitted to move to and build homes in places like Guam, Samoa, Virgin Islands, etc? Are we about to hand back the land we took from Native Americans and Mexico in the wars we fought with them? Would the government tolerate one ethnic or racial group in this country prohibiting another group from building or buying homes in the neighborhood? For the Palestinians and Arab nations to demand that Israel abandon and return back all of the land it conquered in a series of wars the ******** started and lost, is a lot like saying you want your money back when you bet it all in a poker game or a roll of the dice and lose. For our President to side with Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Arab nations who refuse to accept and recognize the legitimate reality of Israel, is a repudiation of an important ally and what we stand for as a people.

    Fact: The overwhelming majority of new AIDS/HIV cases are among straight men and women, particularly in Africa. FACT: It’s only a very small, albeit a very vocal, minority of LGBT people who want to ‘sue the churches into oblivion’ or otherwise use their perceived ‘special protected status’ to take advantage of the situation. FACT: If you eliminated all marriage, there would be no viable claim that LGBT partners are denied the equal protection of the law. FACT: Sociologists and psychologists have testified that there is actually no significant benefit to being raised in a household with opposite sex parents as opposed to same sex parents. FACT: Most gay men and women live their lives quietly, contributing to their communities in very much the same way as straight men and women. FACT: What a person does in the privacy of his or her own home has nothing whatsoever to do with who they are as a person, a father, a citizen, etc. FACT: The first Purple Heart in the Iraq war was awarded to SSgt Eric Alva, USMC, before he felt compelled to reveal that he was gay. Did his being gay somehow lessen the value of his contribution to the effort of the war? Did the blood he shed on behalf of his countrymen somehow become worth less because he was gay?

    I believe the real reason there is a leveling off of support for marriage equality is because of the the in your face gays and lesbians, who threaten all of us, both in the straight and the LGBT community.
