Obama Throws Fidel a Rope

A failed economic system of grossly inefficient centralization with far too many people working in inefficient agriculture, decades behind the western world technology, coupled with a low birth rate and a decreasing life expectancy due to alcoholism put the economy of the Soviet Union in the cross hairs for an arms race that they simply could not sustain. That is what caused the implosion, not the introduction of consumer goods. Russia again struggles because of two factors: the oil price wars going on with OPEC and US increased production crippling the Russian economic dependence upon exporting high priced energy and the sanctions imposed upon them by the west. Castro's police state will collapse as its benefactors are unable to prop up the failed economy.

More 'Tolerance' From Stalinist Universities

The catechism of the Catholic church provides: 2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,140 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."141 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. Marquette University, a faux Catholic university, is no place for homosexual indoctrination. The student was no a homophobe, whatever that buzz word is supposed to mean, he is a Catholic. That is what the homosexual crowd finds offensive - the teachings of Jesus Christ. Let them indoctrinate in Homosexual U, or at a madrassa, not under the flag of Catholicism.

Are There No Media Ethics On Hackers?

The author of the referred article was quite clear that he did not know if copyright protection would prohibit the transmission of non-commercial e-mails. I certainly would not take a case in which my client made an **shole of himself and it was disseminated across the internet because under the fair comment doctrine, the reproduction of the stupid posting would be necessary to demonstrate the purpose of the fair comment. Back when I was in the military, long before the internet, we were taught to be very careful about what we said and to assume that someone was listening in on every conversation (back before Obama and NSA actually were listening in), and my mother taught me that if I had nothing nice to say about someone to say nothing at all.
Screw the courts and the feds. Driver's licenses are a 10th Amendment issue. The court order is unconstitutional and unenforceable. Brewer should disregard the order. People it is time to stop the philosopher kings in black robes who take away our rights.
What the agenda driven liberals do not recognize is that by championing false rape they undermine true victims.

Women Have a Role to Play in Ending Rape

Popular culture is extremely misogynistic. Women have been transformed into sex objects. Unfortunately, far too many women seem to accept the role. The likes of Sandra Fluke are not female role models - it is not now nor has it ever been a desirable objective for any woman to have as much sex with as many men as possible. It simply debases and objectifies women destroying their self respect and self image which in turn fuels the drive to engage in the behavior. Meaningful and lasting relationships are founded upon sex. They are enhanced through intimacy, but founded upon far more significant factors. Sex for sex purposes leads to pregnancy and likely STDs. "Unexpected" pregnancies, as though unlimited sex would not lead to pregnancy, fuels the abortion industry. Abortions lead to further depression and loss of self worth which again fuels the sex for sex purpose behavior. The arduous role for women is to elevate men to their level, not to crawl down into the gutter with them.

Perhaps someone can show me where in Article II of the Constitution the president is empowered to direct state and local law enforcement officers in the performance of their duties?
It will however be persuasive in the pending action by 24 states for a permanent injunction.
Roberts ruled that it was a tax but decided that notwithstanding ipso facto it was ok. The judicial philosopher kings have decreed, so just accept your fate. The law is what the philosopher kings in black robes want it to be.
