Like the Irish?
I'm going to regret asking this, but did you compare Mother Theresa to Hitler?
Hitler told people what they wanted to hear to drum up support. If the population was atheist, he would have taken a more Stalinish approach. He had the Catholic church on a very tight leash with thousands of priests being arrested (or disappearing) in Poland and elsewhere
Leave. Nobody is forcing you to stay and do a job you don't agree with.
The same argument can be made about forcing businesses to pay for abortions and contraceptives.
The are mom and pop bakeries we are talking about. They are individuals.
Those businesses pay taxes too. It's not like they are getting a free ride and they are not free to create their own road system. They also pay for those police in addition to any other security they have.
and I remember him pushing the Defense of Marriage Act in '97.
So did Clinton as well as 118 Democrats on the hill and 32 senators.
Not the best example to give.
That said, I have an extreme dislike for Graham and wish he would just leave politics altogether so we can get another Cruz/Walker type person in office.
I love this. You had me believing you really thought all those steps were easy until that last sentence.
Mine too. Very easy to use with almost all the commands you need printed on the bottom of the editor
Jeb is a long way from being nominated. The funny thing is that one of the bigger obstacles in the way is that another neo-con, Lindsey Graham
Besides matters of defense, I don't think many people see either one of those people as neo cons
No. This should be titled "No chance in hell".
The people who currently control congress are the same people who created the Patriot Act.
Considering the Democrats who controlled both parties failed to do anything but renew it, the Republicans may be our best shot - particularly while they don't control the executive branch.
There are some (on both sides) that thought the bill was a good idea at the time but now realize how awful it really is. Additionally, a very large portion of the Republicans in Congress today were not in Congress when the first bill passed.
It's kind of silly. The people coming here illegally are not usually crossing at border patrol stations.
This really only serves to track law abiding citizen's movements. And you're naive if you don't realize that this is just a pilot that will be spread out throughout the country if not stopped now.
Here's the rub. You can never plan ahead enough to eliminate failure. Sometimes the cost of planning is not worth the cost of the failure you avoid.
Exactly. I have been involved in many projects that spend so much time in the planning stage, that by the time we are ready to move forward, the people supporting the project are gone and all traction dissolved. Then in a year or two, the exact same project starts up again - in the planning stage.
We are stuck in the mid-20th century here in the US. It's a real difficult life/
Got to go, my cell phone is notifying me that a package I ordered online had arrived.
What's your point? If we were doing something different, we'd be hearing that the "corp-America" is breaking world wide banking standards
You have a lack of imagination, my friend. Dear old Mitt as much as admitted that he knew squat about foreign policy.
Obama was the same when running for his first time.
This last election, Romney mentioned the threat from Russia and Obama laughed at him during the debates. In fact, most of the things he warned us about that Obama that was funny (Isis being a JV team) have been shown to be true.
