I am so sick of hearing about whether corporations are denying access to birth control. This case has absolutely nothing to do about that. It has to do with whether you can force your employer to provide your birth control at their expense. No one is denying anyone their birth control!
The problem is not us pulling out of Iraq. The problem is that we went there in the first place! That war had nothing to do with the defense of the United States of America.
The Intelligence Community does not need our thanks. They need to stop spying on Americans. Their behavior is more reminiscent of the Gestapo or KGB and and has no place in a free country! Snowden is a hero letting us know what our government is doing to us!
When the numbers quickly went up before the deadline, I predicted that they simply had a bunch of people sign up on the site and pick a plan. They already knew that picking a plan would increase their desired numbers, they might as well do it en masse in order to meet their goals. It will be some time before they have to fess up that many have not paid.

There is a big difference from getting stoned and driving stoned. Just like we have made a distinction between getting drunk and driving drunk. If you want to drink until you are drunk at home, we have no problem with that. If you get drunk and drive, then there are consequences. There was such a huge reduction in crime and corruption with the end of alcohol prohibition. You will see the same thing with ending drug prohibition.

It seems that some of you want the Republican Party to simply be the party of Christians only. If so, lets make an announcement so that they can get started with the third party that will run the Republicans out of town.

True patriots should be aligning with Liberty. Can it be much simpler than that? Let others be gay. You be want you want to be.

I cannot say whether being gay is a person's choice or not. But I do know one thing: it is not YOUR choice whether someone else is gay or not! It is not the governments choice either. If you want society to work, you need to have tolerance to let others be who will they will be. You work on your own lives. I don't recall Jesus going around saying "pass a law", "force people to act to this way". He appealed to individuals.

The suicide in the last election was Romney. This is not an attack him personally. In 2010 we learned the one issue that people cared about and that was Obamacare. People hate Obamacare and realize that it is the biggest takeover of our lives by government in a long time. That was THE issue to push. So what did the Republicans do? They picked the one candidate that could not successfully attack Obamacare because he created a similar system in his state. Constitutionalists know that what is prevented to the federal governemnt is not necessarily prevented to the state governments, but that is a nuance too deep for many people and it certainly wasn't sold in the election. Running the one person that could not run on the right side of the biggest issue in the election was a huge mistake.
