The states LOST/gave up their right to be a part or have a say in the Central Federal Government when they agreed to the 17th Amendment - making Senators who were supposed to be representing their states in the congress - merely another house of peoples, or rather party, representatives. Until the states can repeal that amendment - which will be never - their only recourse is to nullify laws and go to the Supreme Court - which is stacked more and more against States rights. And then - there ain't enough governors or states that have the balls to take on the central government - they are shackled with chains of $$$
And then he screws it up by running his mouth. When will people ever learn - no one cares what your private feelings and belief's are until you spout them off or act them out.
Mohammad did marry a 6 year old and consummated the marriage when she was 9. and many of our grand parents or great grand parents married when they were 13 and had children - now they don't get married they just pop them out while going to school. While you worry about what is "correct" in other countries and even other times - your own country is going to hell in a hand basket murdering unborn children. I heard a mother say that she expected her son to be having sex by the time he was 12. The largest part of the population using the dreadful "N" word - are dark complected.
This country doesn't like ANY government for more than 8 years - and almost always switches sides - but it's just a spiral climb down - not up. I found a book, "The Worlds Great Religions" © 1957 by TIME, Inc. and expanded series that was published by LIFE - Christianity is in the back third of the book - and it's worth seeing where America was in 1956/7 and where it is today. And you can truthfully thank the "baby boomers" and their hedonistic lifestyles for the America we live in today.
You can keep telling yourself that for two more years - and then when another socialist democrat is elected - what will you say then?

Why Are The Poor, Poor?

It doesn't matter how you try to transfer wealth to those that have not - they won't keep it - they'll go through it and "need" more of that "free" stuff. It's been shown that subsidized housing - where "poor people" live is soon run down - they have no responsibility for it - because they don't own it and have no skin in the game - just give them more. The "Good Book" says "the poor you have with you always". My take - poor people don't know how to not be poor. To very many - it's ingrained in their life - from generations back they've lived in poverty and it's a way of life - and they continue to make choices that keep them there. If you gave every man woman and child in the US a million dollars - within six months - those that have money now would have money - and those who were poor would be poor again. Look at the results of many of those lottery multimillionaire winners.
So, how long do you think you'll be able to keep your union "cadillac" plan - before the company dumps you and / or forces you into buying your own insurance from the unions friend Obama.??.
The other "tool" left because she saw the writing on the wall - called Lois Lerner - who may yet face criminal charges. What do you call "malfeasance" in office? and will Eric Holder and perhaps even Obama suffer the same?
Trade one woman loser for another - O is doing great - don't you think?

It's been a while - several years - since Americans have been able to choose their own leaders - money chooses our leaders - that and the two party political system we live under.

I'm hoping and praying - and I can't wait for the day - when Jesus comes and EVERY knee - even those that purport to be "Christians" have to bend the knee. Show me one christian today that even believes in theocracy. They think Jesus is going to be their buddy - and put up with their hypocrisy - it was Jesus who said - "Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law" - the law - the Ten Commandments. We could start with #1 - but let's just start with four for fun: “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy." Still got any of those Christians that believe the Bible and the words that Jesus spoke?
