It is not up to me to condemn gays but it is my choice to disagree with their lifestyle and the obvious fact that same sex relationships are totally against God's laws. The people who claim to be Christians and accept a gay pastor are not Christians in the true sense of the word. Remember that Jesus said He did not come to change the law but to fulfill prophesy. He also said that not one jot or tittle of the law would be changed by His coming but what He would do was offer a way for all to come before God and confess their sins without intervention by a priest or a blood sacrifice. With that said, there were some programs on HGTV I watched since construction and design are part of my work and career. However, if HGTV has cancelled the yet to be aired program over their religious beliefs and protestations by gay groups who are acting in the same manner as they accuse others of doing. The total hypocrisy of their actions and the capitulation of HGTV is enough for me to never watch HGTV again and I do intend to let them know of my position.
This article is nothing but racism at its worst. Exposing the fact that the same 40,000 voters are registered in 2 states is nothing more than right wing fiction and another strawman to legitimize voter id requirements by everyone casting a vote. All of us who are Democrats would never stoop to such tactics even though grandma passed 20 years ago, even today, she is still a proud Democrat and votes in every election she can, that is if the cemetery gate isn't locked on election day. But, her friends have volunteered to bring her an absentee ballot since it is difficult to claw her way through 6 feet of dirt. :-)
LEAVE birth control alone, concentrate on fixing Obamacare and the economy. Pound home the idea that sending Udall back will only encourage Obama and his agenda to further disregard the Constitution. Stay away from social issues, gay or same sex marriage is here and is not going away. Don't fall for loaded questions on either issue, it is a favorite tactic of Democrats. REMEMBER MISSOURI IN 2012, MEMORIZE IT, USE IT. CLAIRE MCCASKILL IS IN THE SENATE BECAUSE OF A BONE HEADED COMMENT - DON'T FORGET!!!
It would be something if Republicans could pull it off and gain control of the Senate and hold on to the House but before planning a victory celebration party, think about the entire article and understand ACA is the ONLY issue where independents favor Republicans by a wide margin. ACA is not everything and when one stops to consider the number of government programs a substantial number of voters depend on, when they go inside the voting booth, reality may set in and realizing Democrats do not want to take them away and Republicans have the reputation for wanting to take them away, a surprise may be coming in November. Would you vote for someone who wanted to take something away from you that you depend on to help your family? Think about it. Democrats just may retain the Senate and MIGHT pick up a seat or two.

Barack Obama’s War on Free Speech

When I read Obama's kinda-sorta biography, "Dreams from my Father", what he is doing now does not come as a surprise, if anything, it amazes me that he has taken so long to do everything he can to destroy the Constitution. The same Constitution he truly believes is a hindrance instead of a guide for freedoms in America. If he could, all state rule would be voided and subjugated to the will of the federal government in-toto. States and all local governments at any level would have to adhere to strict guidelines he and his Alinsky compatriots would impose on every citizen of this country. When he talks about freedom, he is not referring to the few freedoms you and I try to enjoy, he is referring to the freedom he wants so he can impose his ideas and will on everyone else. To Obama, we are nothing more than an irritant and standing in the way to the ends he seeks. If Republicans do not stop the infighting and start to form a cohesive, offensive coalition, and retake the senate, the damage Obama can do over the next 3 years cannot be repaired. Obamacare is here, like it or not and the only way it can be fixed is to jack it up and do an overhaul. But, without a Republican victory in 2014 and 2016, there will be no jacks and the lemon will continue to clunk along, wasting billions and billions and still, not everyone will be covered. Wake up conservatives and remember, Democrats never, ever turn on their own.
Try Switzerland. They have introduced and are likely to pass a law that requires payment to everyone over a certain age a guaranteed income for life so that the income inequality will be a thing of the past. The problem is, once it is passed there, you can bet a Democrat will introduce a similar bill here and depending on who is in control of congress, it just may pass. Count on the minimum wage being increased to at least $12.50 per hour since Obama wants $15, he will offer and accept a compromise from the Republican sheep in congress.
One thing we cannot depend on and that is Democrats abandoning Obama and crossing over to vote Republican. They are too deeply rooted in the Democrat message and even with the disaster called Obamacare, they will not depart from party lines. As long as the low information voter is the primary source of votes for the Democrat Party, even the increased costs for them won't matter. Then, the spin that ACA is actually something to free us from the bonds of an employer because of health insurance will have a positive influence on Democrat supporters because that is what they truly believe. Republicans may pick up seat or two in the Senate but after the elections, Democrats will still control the Senate and White House until 2016 - count on it.

The Orphaned Middle Class

An earlier poster made an intelligent observation and comment. The different classes in America are an ever changing landscape, dependent upon the current financial condition of the country and economy. What would be considered middle class in 2006 is now upper middle class due to the financial collapse in 2007 and 2008. What was considered middle class to lower middle class in 2006 now meets the lower income - poverty - class and this class makes up one of the largest voting blocs. This is the bloc along with the upper income class that Obama and Democrats are courting so hard. The true middle class is slowing fading from existence. Once it has disappeared, the face of America will be changed forever and the divide between the haves and have nots will be even greater. The 1%, Democrats and Republicans, will not care one iota and if anything, they will continue to encourage the death of the middle class, hoping it will no be revived. Then, America will return to the historical fact that no matter what type or form of government one lives under, there will ALWAYS be the 1% who will live better, have more, be healthier, and most importantly, be in control. Inevitable.
The cost for drugs, doctor's visits, and insurance premiums have been going up in higher than usual increments since ACA was introduced AFTER Obama secured the cooperation of the pharmaceutical and insurance companies to help pass ACA and foist off on the public one lie after another. The liberals and Democrats actually believed the completely ignorant statement by Pelosi when she said the bill had to be passed so we could find out what was in it. No one will disagree that health care access needed to be improved but not with the draconian rules and regulations contained in the ACA that are just now being brought to everyone's attention. Too bad so many had their heads buried in the sand in 2012 and voted for the teleprompter candidate once again.
Maybe if you spent time out from under the bridge troll you might understand more than talking points given to you by the Obama team. But, trolls generally are not intelligent enough to do anything but swallow, regurgitate, swallow, regurgitate, ad infinitum, ad nauseum what they are instructed to say.
Sorry for the spelling - should be "raison d'etre".
