Fifty years ago, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy changed the face of legislatures by working with urban Alabama counties (re: Jefferson) to ban county-based upper chamber districts, claiming they were unfair to the urban areas. The Supreme Court ruled in RFK and the urban counties' favour, and states were forced to redistrict upper chambers based on population. The results, 50 years later, are clear. In many states, mainly blue states, it has become "one area" states. Washington is King County, Colorado is Denver/Boulder, Maryland is Prince Georges/Baltimore, New York is NYC, and the list goes on. Rural counties, which are more conservative than their urban counterparts, lost representation. This is the culprit as the Great Compromise has been banned in favour of leftist-favouring large cities in control.
Here's the problem: The law that Mr. Putin signed is one way to protect against the dangers of child pornography. The homosexual rights lobby's first line of attacks is against churches. In areas where homosexual "marriage" laws have taken effect, the first target is the church, as adoption, foster care, and at-risk youth homes are first targeted. The next is likely soup kitchens run by churches, and further will be speech codes where calling the lifestyle a sin, as in Leviticus 18 and Romans 1, are declared hate speech and can put a minister in prison. We've seen the chilling effects of such laws in those states, and even nationally with federal hate crimes laws. In barring homosexual activists from pushing the wares in schools and youth is a way of saying, "Your sinful lifestyle, and your government replaces God humanism is not welcome here." What we are seeing from certain people (Obama included) is a false narrative to force full acceptance of a sinful lifestyle as normal, when it is not. Putin is right to prevent what will become religious persecution, as we've seen here, with the homosexual lobby.
The ulterior motives of homosexual activists is to shut the church down, turn them into toothless social clubs, where government takes over their duties.
What has sadly happened over the past 20 years since the development of HBO is as the cable networks are now defeating the broadcast networks in the Emmy Awards, the shows being critiqued as the best by television critics are the raunchiest shows on television are premium channel shows (HBO, Showtime, et al), the broadcast networks are losing ratings to those Pay TV channels. And with that push, since HBO effectively now controls media content with such narrowcasting, liberal developers go the low route and copy HBO with grotesque material. Netflix is going the same route. Now they are starting original series and the raunch factor will grow worse with such series, as shown in House of Cards US and new Arrested Development episodes.

It's J-I-M-M-I-E. And Daytona showed the difference between doing your own equipment and relying on others do build equipment. The powerful Gibbs and Waltrip Toyotas had their waterloo from relying on Toyota's factory in California to build the engines that failed; the Hendrick Holdens, on the other hand, have equipment that is built in their Charlotte factory to their standards. The power relies on those who are self-reliant, as we saw.
Since then Sen. McCain has embraced Mixed Martial Arts after the development of the Unified Rules developed. If it wasn't for the late wrestling champion Jeff Blatnick (1984 gold at the Olympics), who formed the core of the Unified Rules. Rules legal before the Unified rules included hair-pulling, small-joint manipulation, headbutts, groin strikes, kicks to a downed opponent and strikes to the back of the head and neck. Boxing was far different in the era before the London Prize Ring Rules, which later gave way to the well-known Marquis of Queensberry Rules Pre-Unified Rules MMA and post-Unified Rules MMA are different.
Eleven years ago on this day I began taking voice lessons. I have learned the seriousness of the music, and the importance of masterpieces. There's a difference between Michael and Serena LaRoche singing and a Beyonce Knowles singing. Give me the classically trained couple!
This is true. The reason discardable pop has become the standard in many churches is the three major secular publishers (the Michael Jackson Company dba Sony ATV, Vivendi Universal, and Warner Music Group) control the majority of church music publishers today, and there is virtually no theology in the music of today's bad pop. John MacArthur has a great commentary on the decline of church music in the past 150 years.
I'll also think either Joe or Alan Wilson could get the call, or even (gasp!) Bill Connor, a Tea Party favourite who has served in Afghanistan.
This is what happens when the Modern Left takes over the energy policy. The seeds started in California Air Resource Board's Zero Emissions Vehicle mandate (ZEV), and the Democrat veto-proof supermajority on the 2007 energy law that forced Detroit to give up on 6 and 8 cylinder family sedans in favour of 3 and 4 cylinder cars and electric cars. Obama stole GM and Chrysler for contributions to opponents, while Ford took almost $6 billion to push for more electric cars and we don't hear much about the Mondeo Energi or C-MAX, let alone the Ford Focus EV. Why did Pelosi and Reid celebrate in a Toyota Prius?
We have a Pop Culture President who goes by feelings and stars, ignore the numbers and charm them with these big names to win. No need to research. Functional illiteracy.
