Legally, the SCOTUS must declare gay marriage to be legal throughout the United States

The 14th Amendment is really quite clear. No law may be passed which pertains to one group of law-abiding citizens of the United States, which does not apply to others. Here is how "Section 1." of the 14th Amendment reads from the Cornell University Law School:
"Section 1.
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

As everyone remembers D Day

Today I've seen a lot of people talking about the landing of D Day.

It is in an important event. One that showed the difficulty in the mission and the sacrifice so many have been willing to make for so many more. However, every year I hear about the landing it reminds me of so much more.

Would this man be justified having shot two officers?

http://www.11alive.com/story/news/local/2015/06/01/man-says-he-was-haras...

This man was open carrying his weapon legally when Police questioned him. After expressing his rights they followed him to his vehicle.

Now according to some Swampbubbles posters following a person is akin to an attack. So would this man not be justified in shooting the police at the airport?

Watch What Happens Now

Tagged:  

The actions against the Baltimore officers will play throughout the legal system and they will be found not guilty. They have become sacrificial souls. The thin blue line will dissappear for a period of time. Those who wanted to police themselves will find out what that really means. Good luck to you and keep your head low.

Another "Typical Free Pass"!!

A more clear example of name calling being overlooked when the name caller is a minority cannot be found! And the ultra serious N-word was used! The kid SHOULD get a lawyer, too.

Howard Dean says stop calling French attackers "Muslim Terrorists"

Howard Dean says "they are about as muslim as I am".

They were yelling "Allah Akbah" as they ran shooting.

Howard Dean is an a**hole. Can we please just stop with the PC crap already?

Obama normalizes relations with North Korea!

In a show of courage today the President normalized relations with the communist country that has been opposed to capitalism and free speech.

Wait... What?

Oh!!!! It's Cuba! That's right.

I am sorry I get confused between those despotic communist countries that have been confiscating wealth and property from it's civilians, preventing free speech, and threatened to attack us.

Here's hoping he starts lecturing Israel on "stolen lands" that were taken through a war where Israel was unprovokingly attacked.

Why Do Homosexuals Want To Marry In Christian Churches?

I can't understand why homosexual people want to get married by a Christian minister or in a Christian Church. They have chosen a lifestyle that clearly contradicts the teaching of both the Old and New Testaments but they insist on marrying under Christian traditions. A Christian couple was fined $10,000 by the State of New York and ordered to pay a lesbian couple $1,500 each for not allowing them to marry on their property. http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/09/27/gay-mafia-claims-another-...

Remember when the Dems said the Tea Party would undue the GOP this cycle

Another Dem Governor candidate now must answer some tough questions.

http://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/wisconsin-democratic-gubernatori...

I initially thought that the Dems might gain a Governorship or two this cycle as the GOP would be entirely focused on the Senate and Governorships are harder races to "nationalize" but now with Ohio now probably a "Safe GOP" keep and this new news about Burke plagiarizing her campaign platform that takes two of the possible flips off the table.

Another Nfl player arrested for domestic violence

Jonathan Dwyer, a running back for the Arizona Cardinals, has been arrested and subsequently deactivated by the team. According to an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "Dwyer, 25, was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on one count of aggravated assault causing a fracture, one count aggravated assault involving a minor, two counts of criminal damage, one count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency, and assault."

The arrests happened after two separate incidents in July at his home involving a 27-year-old female and an 18-month old child. From the sound of the accusations, Dwyer broke a bone of one of the victims.

It's time for the NFL owners to stand-up and give the players a warning of what type of behavior will result in what kind of punishment. Otherwise, the League is going to begin to lose its casual fan base leaving only its fanatics.

Another way to cut back on future incidents is to make players who are troublemakers in college (e.g. Jameis Winston) undraftable. This can only happen if the team owners begin to put character above money.

The elements of protest

Many are traveling great distances to take part in the Ferguson SummerFest, including some described as vacationing looters. I'm wondering why, since they graced Toledo with their presence many years ago, the Nazi boys haven't converged on the Missouri town.

Dinner Time!

Here's a good idea! Waste not, want not. Now it's time to reciprocate and feed a few sharks.

TX Gov Rick Perry Indicted On 2 Felony Corruption Charges

"A Travis County grand jury Friday indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest.

Grand jurors charged Perry, 64, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public servant, a third-degree felony. The first charge carries a punishment of 5-99 years and a fine of up to $10,000. The second charge is punishable by 2-10 years and a fine of up to $10,000.

The indictment stems from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.5 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget."

Okay Teabaggers, why is there an Impeach Obama booth out front of the Oregon Kroger

Seriously. You have now lost the ability to say that Dems are making it all up.

Pay cut for pay raises

Here's an example of individual action backing up words, something that I believe Mr. Independent and Fred would agree with. Be nice if it became a trend among the elite salaried types.

What was that about not impeaching Obama, again?

Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King reignited the debate Sunday about the Republican-led House considering impeachment proceedings for President Obama, just days after party leaders furiously tried to extinguish such talk.

King suggested on “Fox News Sunday” that the impeachment issue could be reconsidered if Obama again uses his executive powers to delay or defer deportation for illegal immigrants beyond those brought illegally to the United States in past years by their parents.

“I think then we have to start, sit down and take a look at that,” King said.

State vs Local salares. Interesting graphics

I stumbled across this.

http://vizual-statistix.tumblr.com/post/92050358541/if-youre-a-governmen...

It's a guy who compared state government salaries opposed to local government salaries. He broke it down by industry.

I haven't reached a judgement on it. I just found it interesting. Feel free to look at it.

Anti-Obamacare Ads ACTUALLY INCREASED ENROLLMENT (Thanks, TeaTards!)

Brookings fellow Niam Yaraghi observed "a positive association between the anti-ACA spending and ACA enrollment." Spending on negative Obamacare ads has outpaced spending on positive ads 15 to 1, according to media research. In Senate races where Democrats are running for re-election, which have been the major targets for anti-Obamacare ads, Yaraghi detected a spike in enrollment.

"This implies that anti-ACA ads may unintentionally increase the public awareness about the existence of a governmentally subsidized service and its benefits for the uninsured," Yaraghi wrote of his findings.

Republican Clownshoes: Boner sues Obama over NOT IMPLEMENTING OBAMACARE FAST ENOUGH!

You cannot make this shit up.

"House Republicans intend to sue the Obama administration for unilaterally delaying the employer responsibility provision of the Affordable Care Act, Politico reported on Thursday, in effect trying to speed up the implementation of the health care law.

The lawsuit will come after the administration twice delayed the provision — which requires employers with more than 50 employees to pay a fine if they don’t offer affordable quality coverage — citing complaints from firms that claimed they wouldn’t be ready to meet its requirement by 2014.
