I remember when Reagan attempted to close the DoE. The hue and cry from politicians was deafening. I ask people, where is the Constitutional authority for a federal department of education? There is none, but they will do backflips to find one.
I worked in the hotel business for many years. We never closed (I still wonder about the locks on the front door). You worked when you were scheduled. What about the police, firemen, EMTs, 911 operators, etc? A lot of people work these *and other) holidays. We take this as a matter of fact. What we DON'T need are politicians making these decisions for us.
Y'all just don't understand. If you do not allow someone else to pay for an abortion, then youare not allowing millions of unborn to be aborted. Therse people cannot afford one dollar for a condom, or ten dollars for birth control pills. How do you expect them to come up with the huindreds or thousands the abortion costs (I have no idea what they cost)? You are so MEAN. (end sarcasm)
Diversity, when it happens all on its own, is a wonderful thing. But when you start (or attempt) to FORCE diversity, itnever ends well. Wheres the diversity in the NBA (or other major sports)? Seems to me that in most sports, the best athletes are black (except the NHL). I dont hear the screams about diversity there. Why not? Because owners and coaches do not CARE about "doversity". They want the best player. And so do the fans. Hollywood voted for the best moies, directors, etc, and NOT for the most melanin. And for the record, the Oscars (and Emmys, et al) are just a bunch of people patting themselves on the back. A bunch of self serving, self important, wankers.

An "almost no go zone" would be Dearborn, MI.

I'll tell you how to handle these "no go zones". Wall them off. Nothing goes in,nothing comes out. See how quickly they either die, or change their ways.
If Muslims really want their own enclaves in cities (like Dearbore, MI) then I say,fine. We build a wall around those ares. Nothing goes in, nothing comes out. Then, when they are starving, and dying from lack of medical care, and they want out, we ask, "Are you ready to assimilate into American society?" If they say yes, down come the walls, and in go the police, and they assimilate or LEAVE THE COUNTRY.
"If you have nothing to hide,you should allow a search" is a line used by police to get PEOPLE to give up Constitutional rights. I detest when "the man" uses this argument. However, when it is "the man" (or in this case the Federal Reserve) has it shoved in his face, there is a big difference. The Constitution is there to control and restrict the government. When our representatives DEAMND to audit the Fed, the Fed MUST comply, whether they have something to hide or not.
I saw this article and thought of the movie "A Stranger Aming Us" starring Melanie Griffith. It (sort of) explains Orthodox Jews to the average nonJewish person. It did for me, and I was raised in a reformed Jewish home.

You want to have some fun? Get an audio recording of a tennis match. Put that on while watching the SOTU muted. It looks like Obama is watching the tennis match.
