The Redemption of George Wallace

"The GOP is as white as ever. " I'm sure Adam West, Marco Rubio, Starr Parker, Michelle Malkin, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz and thousands of black, Hispanic and Asian voters (including me) would disagree with that statement. I don't hate the LGBT community; I just don't want them to force me to say I agree with them 100%; I will support their right to participate in sexual practices that God calls an abomination. I don't hate immigration; however, there is a difference between legal and illegal. Don't come across the border unless you have the proper documentation and are prepared to become a productive citizen and not someone sucking off the government tit. And I don't hate the poor. I hate what the government has done to make them uneducated and dependent instead of educated, independent, productive citizens who would rather work for what they have.
Jeff, your rules are similar to what our were. Here are a couple additions: 1. Ask first. It is not easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission." 2. Give me time to think about it. If you push for an immediate answer, it will be "No." I told my children that I wanted them to be kids that other parents loved to have come over, not the kids that adults would say "Oh, no, it's those kids." Our kids are grown and gone. One is a firefighter, the other spent 8 years in the USMC and lives halfway across the country. They are raising their children with similar rules.

Obama's Border Crisis Lies

I cringed every time I heard the clip where the President talked about "the best and brightest." No one can say that these children are the best and brightest that Cental America has to offer. They are either too young, have no education or are criminals.
Comparing contraception prevention for women to ED medication for men is comparing apples to oranges. Women can have sex with or without contraception. Men who are on ED medication cannot have sex without the medication. Women do not NEED contraception, they WANT it. The most effective method of contraception costs nothing. It's called abstinence. Other than that, if a woman wants to have sex that badly, she should be able to pay $9-$12 a month for a pack of BC pills or even less for a box of condoms. The sticking point is that they want ME to pay for it. And if they do get pregnant, they want me to pay for the abortifacient that they will use to end that pregnancy. And don't give me that BS about it being the insurance company or the government that is paying for it. The insurance company pays for it because they increased my premiums and co-pays. And the government pays for it with the money I have paid in taxes. If a woman wants to have sex, she should be an adult about it and buy her own contraception. Why should a woman become dependent on the government to provide what she should be providing for herself? The only form of contraception I would agree that the government could pay for is for tubal ligations for women who are receiving any type of government assistance and vasectomies for men. At least that way, they wouldn't be able to bring any more welfare babies into the world.
She makes me ashamed that SHE is a female.
It amazes me that someone can say that a fetus isn't considered a human being. If it isn't a human being, why are people charged with a crime for the death of two people when a pregnant woman and her in-utero child are killed. You can't say it's not a human being and then charge someone with its murder.
The beliefs of the family which owns Hobby Lobby and Conestoga are the values upon which they have built and run their company for years. They are not trying to establish a state religion, they are trying to keep the state out of their religion. If a strict Muslim owns and operates a business according to his beliefs, he has every right to establish a dress code. Anyone who doesn't accept Hobby Lobby, Conestoga or your fictitious Muslim's standards can quit. No one is forcing them to work there. Religious freedom is right up there with freedom of speech, which you fully take advantage of to spout your inanities.
Notice that he didn't apologize for signing the bill into law in the first place or offer to promote legislation to rescind this law.
And thanks to the NSA, you won't be anonymous for long.

"They were committed to preserving, where possible, cultural artifacts such as paintings sculptures and the like" Unlike the Nazis who pillaged and looted the artwork of the Jews, the Italians, the French and every other country they invaded.

The Jew-Hating Obama Administration

Americans need to re-read Genesis 12:3: "I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse;" So, as America stands with Israel, we will be blessed by God; and as we stand against Israel, we will be cursed. And as we see from the things that are happening today because of a leader who is anti-Semetic (or pro-Muslim, take your pick), America is clearly on the cursed side.
