I don't expect for him to have a heart and do what is right. I was attempting to be sarcastic.
That's so true. When Catholics know better then to vote for a man who has extreme views on abortion, they should be ashamed of themselves and not receive Communion if they voted for Obama. But that usually doesn't happen, such a pity. I'm Catholic, and I could never vote for a man or women who doesn't believe in the sanctity of life. Now we're paying the price with having an extreme leftist in the White House. All we can do right now is pray for this country.
Obama is an insult to nuns and the Catholic Church. Why these nuns aren't exempt from this part of the monstrosity called Obamacare is beyond my feeble comprehension. Obamacare wasn't needed in the first place, but now this is here to stay, ugh, groups that represent the Catholic social services and networks should be exempt from offering contraceptives from their health care insurance plans. Women can purchase their own contraceptives, it's not expensive. The nuns have better things to accomplish rather then to waste time trying to fight this. Come on Obama, have a heart!

Why I Wrote 'Jesus on Trial'

Sounds like an interesting book. He didn't mention what denomination he was, he just mentioned he was a Christian.
This is a just war, we need to fight ISIS with all our might and destroy the power of this terrorist group. As for the mosque that has been linked with some of these terrorists, making pig noises or disrupting their prayers is infantile and accomplishes nothing. Jesus Christ told us to love our neighbor as ourselves. You can show this by having a peaceful protest in front of this mosque; this accomplishes more. Destroying this mosque is against the law and lowers ourselves to the level of these terroists.

The Latest Legislative Pay Raise

I have 2 solutions that will never pass in my lifetime but would solve the problem. Since most people in Congress are rich and many are millionaires, why should they get an a salary for serving in Congress? Give them a minimum salary and only give them money to run their staff. Only those with an income under a certain level would receive the current full salary for Congress. The other half is to have term limits. This would help in two ways. One, you wouldn't have people in Congress serving 30 to 50 years; you would open the doors for other people to serve their country and the turnover will give them fresh ideas not the stale ones all the time. We could find solutions to our problems and we would get rid of pork barrel spending. Two, this would slow down overall spending, because they would be more responsible to the people's voting. There would be no guarantee of them winning election every year for 30 years. They would listen to the people more and not just have a Washington DC mind set. The Founders had no intention of people serving their lives in Congress, but that's what it has become. They wanted people to serve for a while, and then go back home to their occupations. This would be more Democratic. Like I said, this won't happen in my lifetime, but it may happen in my grandkids lifetime.
This was a very funny episode. I think Jodi Miller was on America's Got Talent this year as a comedian, I thought she was funny with her own material.

Why Did We Celebrate Labor Day?

I thought Labor Day had to do with expectant mothers. I really don't, but Labor Day is so irrelevant in today's job market, that I don't think of it as anything but the last holiday in summer, it's original meaning to me is lost.
These so called attacks on women by the left is getting old. Nobody on the right is attacking women, it's just a way for the Democrats to ignore the issues which don't favor them. I think the left is attacking women more then the right. The right is for freedom in your daily life, the freedom to make your own decisions with minimum government interference, the left is for government control of your life from cradle to grave.
I think we need to attack these ISIS militants with all our might. They don't have a conscience and are not intimidated by our strikes. We need to use our military forces and strike hard. These militants came to power by our weak foreign policies in the Middle East. I'm sorry to say this, but America has weakened economically at home and as a world power since Obama's been in office. He has no foreign policy and has no strong economic plan. His fumbling could hurt this country for years to come.
We discourage cigarette use but legalize and almost encourage marijuana use. What has this country come to? Long term marijuana use slows down and impairs your mind. All marijuana use does is give you a temporary high. And people want this? I think both cigarettes and marijuana sales should be illegal, both this won't happen. Marijuana does have some use medically but there is nothing good about cigarette use. It's about the all mighty dollar, the tax dollars from the sale of those items is the only reason why they're legal. At least you can still drive and smoke cigarettes, but you can't do that with marijuana.
