In a nationwide referendum, Ireland voted to make marriage legal between any two people regardless of gender. This is most notable for a variety of reasons. When polled, over 80% of the people of Ireland claim that they follow the Catholic faith. On the eve of the vote, several Catholic church leaders pleaded with their parishioners to defeat this referendum.

Hate crime against a child
Kirstin Roberts looks at what a recent hate crime against an African American child says about our image of who is racist in our society.
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.

A black man had dinner at a strip mall and stood outside the restaurant waiting for his ride home when a White security guard attached him causing injury. The Black Man had baggy clothes, a hoodie , a cell phone and a blind man's cane. The police ruled that the assault by the security guard was justified.
Eleven teachers in Atlanta were convicted of violating standardized school test protocols. Not only were they fired from their teaching jobs, but prosecutors claimed that the Federal Organized Crime Statute applies to this case and could land the teachers in jail for twenty years. What makes this case so interesting is that this was an equal opportunity crime where White and Black teachers were involved. But, none of the White teachers were put on trial and won't face any jail time. What an interesting example how justice is equal in this country.
The charges against a Chicago policeman were dismissed for shooting a Black Woman in the back of the head. According to the news report, an off-duty policeman ordered a group of people at a park to stop being loud and one of the group pulled a gun. The policeman fired several times into the crowd striking an unarmed female in the back of the head. This sounds very suspicious. No gun was found and no one in the crowd was charged with pulling a gun. I guess making too much noise in a park gets the death penalty.
Remember, the President is smarter than the Republicans and everything they do is them playing right into his hands.
Also, by utilizing their Constitutional mandated duties they were accused of treason on this board.
In truth all of that was B.S. being pushed by those who have failed to grasp a basic understanding of how their government works.
NW OHIO JOURNAL Nexus Pipeline Aired: 04/02/2015 The recent proposals for numerous pipelines to move the gas has created some controversy.

Data: Oil Trains Spill More Often, But Pipelines Spill Bigger
"A lot of people have used this data to argue that transporting oil via pipelines is safer than rail. And that’s true, if your idea of safety is defined by the frequency of accidents, regardless of how large the accidents are. If, however, you think massive releases of oil into the environment pose a greater risk to human health, than pipelines are the greater evil."
Ted Cruz was born in Alberta Canada to a native Cuban and a mother born in the United States. If I use the same argument that Obama birthers used, he can't. Obama was born in the United States (Hawaii). I have a friend who father was born in Great Britain to an American GI and a British mother. My friend is classified as an alien and must have a Green Card.
No assertion is more correct, IMHO! And this relates to ALL groups as well.
One concern that Mikey and I share should be a concern to every American -- it is the treatment of military veterans. Here's link to an article delineating the problems that are not being properly addressed by the current administration: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/14/us/obama-va-hospital-phoenix.html?emc=...

Does anyone think this was not the case? :)
Republican Governor John Kasich and the Ohio GOP may not care that over half of the Lucas County Republican Party Central Committee (LCRP-CC) members recruited by Jon Stainbrook did not vote in the November General Election.
