Now if we could only do something about the SEIU goons that are employed as health care aides and orderlies in assisted living facilities in Oregon and other states that have Vote by Mail. I have no doubt that these aides are "assisting" mentally disabled patients, dementia patients, and comatose patients in filling out their mail-in and absentee ballots. Probably even filling out and mailing in "absentee" ballots for their deceased patients.
I think they are nit-picking, and they should cut Mr. Ferriero some slack here. It is quite obvious that "following the law" is almost an impossibility under the current administration. Nobody knows what the law is on any given day until Mr. Obama and Mr. Holder decide what the law is on that particular day, and then imparts that bit of knowledge to the bureaucrats and citizens. And of course it is still subject to interpretation and reinterpretation as the day progresses for Barry and Eric, much like hitting a moving target while blindfolded. It is what they say it is. Period. Full stop.
Too late! Obama has already turned it into an ash heap.

Proof that the Cartoon Network is the brains behind the Obama administration.
It's quite apparent that Holder and Obama disagree with the law of the land, the US Constitution, which is why they ignore it at will.
Mr. Robertson is 67 years old, and grew up in a culture where homosexuality was not only considered to be unacceptable behavior, but was also illegal Through the 20th century, the gradual liberalization of American sexual morals led to the elimination of sodomy laws in most states. During this time, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of sodomy laws in Bowers v. Hardwick as recently as 1986. It was only 10 years ago, in 2003, that the Supreme Court reversed the decision with Lawrence v. Texas, invalidating sodomy laws in the remaining 14 states (Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and Virginia). While I have gay friends I deeply respect and admire, I would not presume to be judgmental of someone like Robertson whose traditional personal religious beliefs are sincere, and who do not advocate harm to anyone. Tolerance and diversity should be a two-way street, particularly when dealing with harmless old coots. I just question the idea that something that was universally socially taboo and illegal for thousands of years, and only achieved legal legitimacy less than 10 years ago is expected to immediately gain acceptance by everybody. The discrimination shown towards sincere Christian beliefs also seems hurtful and judgmental in that context of history. Robertson did not seem to be as militant and rigid as some of his detractors, who can veer into rabid pc fascism at times. There is a whole older generation (WWII's rapidly disappearing Greatest Generation) out there that are probably a lot less tolerant than Robertson, so are we saying we should discriminate and be intolerant of older folks?
I'm an old coot, most of my friends qualify as old coots, and probably Phil considers himself to be an old coot. I had no idea that "old coot" was not pc, and hereby apologize to the Thought Police.
For thousands of years in almost every culture, homosexuality was a taboo, and in many places was against the law. Mr. Robertson is 67 years old, and grew up in a culture where homosexuality was not only considered to be wrong, but also illegal Through the 20th century, the gradual liberalization of American sexual morals led to the elimination of sodomy laws in most states.

Obama's first Director of Communications, Anita Dunn, infamously said that the mass murderer Mao Tse Tung was her favorite philosopher. It's a toss-up which one is more sick, twisted, and depraved, Anita or Martin.
Hopefully this depraved degenerate will be deported back to Britain. although his apparent propensity for coprophagia may prevent that, as the Brits are quite sensitive about that condition as it causes mad cow disease, and may consider him to be a health hazard. Not only did Bashir reveal a sick and twisted psyche, he also displayed a pathetic ignorance of history. Where he failed (along with Howard Kurz, who went along with Bashir's premise regarding the use of the word slavery) is in the ludicrous (and somewhat racist) assumption that the word "slavery" is the sole provenance of African-Americans. Slavery has been around a whole lot longer than before African-Americans were brought to North America. Slavery was practiced by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, African tribes, Chinese, and Native Americans long before the Europeans came to America. Slavery was the fate of conquered peoples, probably dating back to cave men. It describes a human condition which encompasses humans "owning" other humans for their labor, as well as similar contexts of humans "enslaved" to drugs or alcohol or even debt. Ms. Palin's context was that If America continues as a debtor nation, with Obamacare greasing the skids on the path to bankruptcy, then the American people will be enslaved to some greater or lesser degree by that debt. And it will be an equal opportunity slavery, shared by all ethnicities. Bashir was just expressing his inner depravity, whereas I think Howard Kurz was being deliberately disingenuous.
